Balsamic Moon - The end of one cycle and the beginning of another. Keywords for the Balsamic phase are: transition, release, transformation, renewal and purity. It is the phase in a cycle when you must let go of everything you have been working on that does not deal with current cycle issues. During this phase you reflect on the passing cycle and prepare for the new. Trust in renewal. It is important to separate from others now so that you can clear the intellect of negativity. LET GO. Become still and meditate.
Moon in Cancer - Late this afternoon the moon will enter the Cardinal Water Sign of Cancer bringing us its strong emotional needs for security. This moon transit brings heightened sensitivity and the need to create a home and nurture. There will be feelings of a greater interest in food and food preparation.
This could easily lead to a food-indulgence time. Cancer is the home of the moon, that sensitive planet of emotions, so feelings are easily hurt, especially by personal criticism. Handle with care. Be careful to avoid a conflict as a grudge formed now will take a long time to heal. Moon in Cancer is the best time to work magick for home and domestic life. Healing rituals for ailments of the chest or stomach are also done during this period of time.
This is Freya's Day - Venus Day - the Day of Sharing and Relationship. This is a day for spells of love, friendship, beauty, sensuality, healing, peace and harmony. Also a good day for spells for artistic ability and creativity generally. Today there are minor magickal energies for resolving quarrels with friends/lovers.
