Gifts of the sign of "Cancer"
"The heart is a lonely hunter that hunts on a lonely hill" - William Sharp
Loneliness is a powerful emotion that can make us feel lost and disconnected. It bleeds through our veins and distracts us from life. It often robs us of our sanity, by thinking we aren't worthy. It preys on our soul, as it makes us perceive we are alone in this universe.
Recently, I had the privilege of engaging in a heartfelt conversation with a client who expressed an overwhelming sense of loneliness. In response, I offered guidance on how to navigate through it by embracing the power of creativity, drawing from my own personal journey.
Understanding the Energy of Loneliness:
During our conversation, I explained to my client that their feelings of loneliness might be influenced by the astrological sign Cancer. Cancer is known for its sensitivity, tenderness, and nostalgic nature, which can intensify emotions. It was important for my client to understand that dwelling solely on their loneliness would only perpetuate those feelings, trapping them in a never-ending cycle.
Cancer is the sign of the crab, carrying its shell on its back. It peeks its head out, when it wants to be seen or needs something, but would most often welcome the delight of retreating into its shell- its home, its safety net, as to protect itself from fear or rejection. Inside that hard shell, she is vulnerable, intuitive, nurturing, and deeply loving.
This energy is potent and powerful to everyone under the sun's influence right now, with the Sun and Mercury in this watery sign, we may have trouble communicating our emotions, asking for what we want - for fear of rejection, or simply focusing on all the things that are NOT working in our life.
Next Monday, July 17th, we will also have the moon in Cancer. The Cancer moon, its ruling planet, promises to reflect into the world, whatever we project at it.
Shifting Focus to Creativity:
To provide a solution to my client, I encouraged them to redirect their attention toward creativity. I emphasized that creativity is not limited to artistic abilities; rather, it is a powerful force that connects us directly to the source, the Creator of all that is. By engaging in creative pursuits, we tap into our innate potential and find solace in the act of self-expression.
It was crucial for my client to realize that by channeling the energy of creativity into their lives, they could experience and become aware of the abundance that is in their lives. Creativity allows us to connect with the universe on a deeper level, enabling us to perceive the support, nurturance, and care that surrounds us. Creativity is unlimited. Loneliness is finite.
You see, each of us possesses everything we need within ourselves to utilize this energy and manifest it in various ways that exponentialize our asks of the universe.
What are you choosing?
Harnessing the Power of Visualization:
To help my client connect with their inner creative source, I guided them through a visualization exercise. I encouraged them to visualize a radiant ball of light at the center of their heart, nurturing it and allowing it to grow bigger and brighter. By doing so, they would access their creative potential and expand their awareness of the infinite possibilities that lie within them.
Expanding out, we can perceive all the support, love, and kindness that is available to us from the universe. Then, and only then, can we see if reflected back at us through others.
Loneliness can be an overwhelming emotion, leaving us feeling adrift and disconnected. Through my personal journey and insights, I shared with my client the transformative power of creativity in overcoming loneliness. By shifting their focus from loneliness to creativity, they can open themselves up to abundance, purpose, and a deeper connection with the universe. So, if you find yourself grappling with loneliness, embrace your own creative energy and unlock the endless possibilities that await you on your journey of self-discovery.
