Karena’s Mooncast – June 18th to 24th
“Return to Sender”
Hello Summer!! The Summer Solstice, the shifting of the Sun sign, Mercury direct, and a Full Moon. Oh My! There’s a lot of energy moving this week. Did I mention June is a month for change?
Monday is the Summer Solstice and the beginning of Cancer season. Cancer is the Mother of the Zodiac. In her flow, she is nurturing, caring, and has just enough time for family, friends, and herself.
In her ebb, she may feel overwhelmed with the constant pressure to perform to societal standards. Regardless if you’re a mother to children, pets, or nurturing the inner child inside, this week is asking you to evaluate your duties, and remove any that really aren’t filling your cup.
Mercury goes direct June 22nd, the day after the Summer solstice. Did you plan your celebration? No? This is one way to help the mother in all of us find the inner balance of peace and harmony. Be sure to communicate your needs with those around you. Now that Mercury is playing nice, you might find the words a bit easier to find.
Still feeling stagnant? I often use an old witch trick when I’m feeling stuck, or I sense there is an energy present that isn’t mine. It’s called “return to sender”. I love it because it’s just as simple as it sounds. If you feel something is up with your energy field, an inner voice in your head that isn’t yours, just return it from where it came. “Return to sender please.” No need for an explanation, no need to drown yourself in mental math. Just send it back, then get back to the groove.
Witch Tip: Return to sender not working? Put it on ice! And I don’t mean margarita’s… or maybe I do. Write down everything that is bothering you on a piece of paper and place it in a freezable container or ice cube tray. Fill it up with water, and then speak aloud, “You’re on Ice!”. This creates an intentional pause to your thoughts or feeling until your ready to defrost it and try your hand at it again. Or not. It’s up to you. After, just for the fun of it, have yourself a practical magic kinda night and make margaritas under the moonlight. Trust me you won’t regret it. Just make sure not to use your spell ice though!
