Balsamic Moon in Cancer - 3rd September 2021

Updated: Apr 29, 2022

The Moon is entering the last phase of its cycle: the balsamic phase. This is the most receptive and mystical energy of the lunar cycle. We’re invited to surrender, to let go, to meditate.

This balsamic phase starts in Cancer and the energy of the Crab will help us to be focused on our inner world and scan our current emotional state. How do we feel after everything that happened in the last weeks? Relaxed? Content? Drained? Disappointed? An emotional check is necessary.

A few hours later, the moon will enter Leo (where the last New Moon took place, where this lunar cycle started), giving us the opportunity to tap into our creativity and our inner power to envision the seeds that will be planted at the next New Moon in Virgo on September 7th.

The lunar cycle is coming to completion and we might have a sensation of lack, as if something was missing… Is there anything more we could have done? Here, the risk is either to focus only on what we didn’t achieve, or to directly skip this step of reflection and jump right away to the next lunar phase which is nothing else than the next New Moon coming in a few days.

But for now, for the next three and a half days, the yin energy that is offered to us is inviting to a reset. This phase is associated with Pisces: we’re returning to the source of all things, undoing ourselves, drawing messages from the collective consciousness. All with a Leonian hue, which can lead to some fireworky and unique inspiration!

Whatever we envisioned during the Full Moon in Leo, we did our best to stick to the plan, to implement necessary changes and manifest our intentions. Some things worked out, others not, and that’s fine. This is what we’re invited to meditate on: whatever we did, whatever happened, it’s perfectly fine. We accept it, and we surrender. After everything we had to process, everything we have been thinking, all the efforts we have made, we have to allow our brain and our mind to rest and recharge.

So sit back, relax and dive into your inner world. In total receptivity, let the flow of Cancerian energy take you to the deepest corners of your inner world, let the creativity of Leo infuse your dreams, and you’ll see… The potency of the seeds you will sow during the Virgo Moon will reach another level of fertility.

With Love. Bridge!
