It’s so amazing that we have two double Cancer skies this month. If it wasn’t enough to be emotional the last few months, the second visit of this astrological influence asks for more…a direct request for us to open our hearts.

Bye-bye Mercury retrograde. Almost glad to see you go—except for the other four planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto) that continue to go backwards, making up for your absence.

I hope you—the reader of this newsletter—saw the video I did for the last eclipse on July 4th where we prayed for Mom. I reminded us to slow down. Yes, we are being asked to slow down and feel.

Imagine Cancer singing that old song “Feelings”, then double Cancer walks in and says: “yeah, go deeper!” Remember that last newsletter I sent out called ‘It’s okay to be sad?’ Well, here we go again.

I don’t want to tell you that that person who I was writing about, who was in hospice, passed. I don’t want to talk about how the numbers of COVID in the United States are worse than ever—increasing daily.  I don’t want to tell you that in my own world, so much radically shifted. A couple solid relationships—that I had thought were forever—changed shape.

I did not see it coming. How many of us under this double Cancer sky (with Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto all vying for attention, standing opposite the Sun) have been reflecting on our emotional nature? This planetary alignment, if properly operative, demands that we feel.

I don’t know about you, but I’m just learning how to be real and feel. This is the essence of the high road of a Cancer, which is referred to as the most ‘real’ sign in the zodiac. Personally I had to learn to be sensitive; I tend to be in my head and at times, arrogant.

There are two kinds of people: those that are humbled, and those that are about to be. It seems obvious to me that our whole planet right now is being asked to learn about emotions.

As a species I think it is safe to say: we are emotionally remedial beings. We have so few examples of beings who are emotionally wise. Who is a role model for showing us how to feel, cry, laugh with full abandon, and lift up depression? No one.

The other day, after the death of a family member, I was broken. I went over to my friend’s house and did what I hate to do: I cried right there in front of her. The ugly face cry.

I don’t mind crying alone. Well, that’s not true. I don’t like to cry even then.

I read in a book called: ‘The Missing Element’ (that I wrote haha) that Water/crying is essential in cultivating compassion and emotional wisdom. That’s why I wanted to tell you—I know it’s not just me—that this time, while being painful, is useful.

Saturn in Capricorn opposite the Sun in Cancer asks for a purpose for this pain. I’m not sure who made this up, but we learn through pain.

I am so sad that those couple of relationships that really mattered broke under the pressure of COVID. There is no one to blame. I take full responsibility for both. I was not being honest with myself. I just kept on giving. I was not getting my needs met. I gave too much. I do that, said my Libra rising. My fault. The balance went off.

Change never comes with pajamas on—it always wears some uncomfortable, unfamiliar outfit that you are just not used to. Change ruffles everything.

I’ve had to surrender. I will always say yes to change—even if I don’t like it. I am a growth hound. Which is why I am always selling (during this season as our launch begins) Astrology. I want you to grow with me.

Let’s address under this double-Cancer sky the high road for Cancer: keep growing even if you have to let your kids go do something you don’t like…even if you have to let go of a friend because the cycle came and went…even if it hurts. Any time a Cancerian personality has to let go—it’s awful.

No surprise that the low road of Cancer is contraction and complacency. ‘No,’ says the high road of Cancer. ‘I will grow at all costs. I will seek discomfort willingly.’

Alice Bailey (a prolific writer of Esoteric Law of the 1930’s) said that Cancer was one of the most evolved signs IF there was a willingness to accept the human pain body. If you can stand face-to-face with the human condition and all its flaws and love it anyway. Love wholeheartedly.

Try to feel this new moon. Let the tears come. Let the pain be there. And then…lift up the pain to the dark moon and pray: Let me know how to be human at the most evolved level. Just ask for that.

You are a healer. You are the one you are looking for. This is the time all the prophets longed to live. Humanity will make it through the threshold. One way to evolve is to use your left brain and see how all this is truly right on cycle. Come study with us when our school opens next month.

Do the work to grow at all costs. Just say YES, and you too will be able to serve humanity by learning how to feel and be a good human. This is the art of being human: to willingly feel the good the bad and the ugly.

That’s my promise. I am imagining you are standing in here with me.

With love,
Debra

    What a beautiful, authentic, and insightful blog! It’s so refreshing to see a spiritual teacher sharing honestly and authentically about their own sad and painful feelings within the positive higher context of lessons to be learned as human beings. I am a Gemini, and I can totally relate to everything that you shared in this blog, including “Any time a Cancerian personality has to let go—it’s awful.” Thank you for making me feel so much better in this moment about embracing my own sad and difficult emotions.

  • judy@themasterycentre.ca' Judy MacLeod says:

    Thank you Debra for making sense of this strangely emotional time. So many things are disappearing through death, separation and choices. It is a sad time for me as well and tears form far too easily in my stoical eyes. I am a Taurus, Libra rising.

  • woodatthejct@aol.com' Robert says:

    I love the way you tell about astrology and what it all means. I think your incredible at what you do. Wish I
    was sitting next to you talking about all this great knowledge to really understand what is all about.

  • patriciamccain88@gmail.com' Patricia McCain says:

    I love your honesty and I have already marked a few of your comments as tweetable like there are 2 kinds of people those that are humbled and those that will be. Oh is that not the truth. I also don’t cry easily. I am a capricorn with a leo moon and gemini rising and both of my daughters are full of cancer in their charts (boy the fun we have had with their emotions) But you right, they may be emotional but they are real and nurturing and so so caring. Again thank you for your raw energy and honesty it is real.

  • kyah1skye@yahoo.com' Ava says:

    Thank you ! I feel you! And I certainly feel the Cancer/Capricorn energies! (not to mention I live with one Cap Sun/Cancer Moon/Scorpio Rising! 0mg). Sending you healing prayers and so much love! Thank you for all you do to connect us so we may have the strength together to deliver humanity to the Aquarian Age. Love you deeply! Ava

    Hi Debra! I really appreciated your info on the Cancer New Moon. It really helps knowing there is an astrological correlation to what is happening in our lives. Especially when we wonder what is going on with us. I have a Scorpio sun and Cancer moon and this past month could not stop crying. I’ve had to learn to be the mother to myself and have patience with myself to let myself have my feelings and feel safe. Your post encourages me to keep on. I also appreciate your honest sharing and am sorry for the loss of your family member. I also appreciate your updates every couple of days. They too are very helpful. Thanks again for all you do!

    Thank you for this beautiful newsletter. As a Cancerian I have tears ready to spring out most days. I love your book and the beginner course I am still absorbing. I’m glad we are alive at the same time. I’m learning so much from you. Keep doing what your doing. Your daily you tube videos are one of the first things I do in the morning.

  • zellacious@aol.com' Suzelle says:

    Crying for me comes easily. So easily in fact, that back in late 2019, I was asking to be crying less. All it takes for me is a tender moment. Or not. Only 2 days ago, I was brought to tears by an ant. Yes, an ANT! I was watering the garden and down at my feet was this ant carrying this heavy piece of dry corn, 3 times it’s size. He was trying to get past and over my big foot. That’s all it took. He was reminding me of the struggle that we all face at one time or another, carrying a heavy burden. Trying just to “get over”. So, no. I hope I’m done with crying for a while. You would think I’d be use to LOSS by now. I’m not. Coming up on 2 years since I put my Elsie down. 5 since my mom died. 9 since my best friend passed. And on and on….and on.

  • susan.day00@gmail.com' Susan Day says:

    This is so much of why I have been drawn to you, Debra. You are an expansion junkie just like me. The only way into that is vulnerablity, telling the truth, taking responsibility and crying if we need to. Thank you for being part of the tribe of star beings!
    Blessings to you.
    My mantra…I love you, thank you, please forgive me…sending it straight to your sweet and tender heart!

    Stars and Light,

  • jennie.mccluskey@gmail.com' Jennie McCluskey says:

    It feels like all living things on the planet, want to be heard. Want to share consciousness. Is that just me feeling wonky? Anyway, my dad died 7-2 so I am an emotional one lately.

  • alinatudos@gmail.com' Alina Tudose says:

    Good post. Thank you for feeling and being hones with yourself. Trying to be positive all the time is not real, never was. Balance is real. Buddha said so…find balance in everything that you do. That leaves space for surprises. Good or less good, find the balance.

    at least 60 years and always thought there should
    Be schools for Astrology like in ancient times.

    First let me say I am so sorry for your lost! I have been praying 💔….as your friend in Georgia I will continue.

    My relationships all turned on their head during this last cycle. Such a painful time knowing in this life it’s over in my love relationship with my life

  • Amo339911@gmail.com' An says:

    First, I want to send you well wishes for all of your losses. Beinging a Cancerian myself, endings are not my strong suit (I am loaded with Cardinal energy after all) it can be a struggle to let go. That being said, I wanted to bring up a point about water and water signs.
    We use our creative fire and the airy mental energy to dream up the seeds of our future. Fire and air work so beautifully together here. Then we craft fertile soil/situations (earth) to plant these seeds in. But we must also water these seeds for them to both sprout and survive. Whether we provide that water element thru sweat, tears or just the giving of our emotional selves, water is necessary for it is a basic element in all living things. This is where earth and water work so wonderfully together. We as the creators of these future endevors, these seeds per say, we provide the ether, the life force that is needed. Harnessing the four elements, using them harmoniously, and providing a spark of our own to create with/from. By accepting our emotions, our watery, fluid sides, we come back into balance and enable our reative abilities.
    Much peace to you through this transition.

  • mariahinespanola@yahoo.com' Mariah says:

    Hi Debra , I’ve been doing the ugly face cry without much of a break for about three days, it’s coming from a very deep place within me, stuff I thought I had already released and healed. But a whole new layer just came up. My gut has been wrenching from the deep deep places that this sadness has appeared from. And I still feel that there’s more to come. Thank you for this beautiful reading, it really hit home and resonated. Also, people from my past that I have not thought about it many years have been surfacing in my mind, I realized too that I need to do a lot of forgiving.

  • diana@dianacordero.com' DC says:

    All of this rings so true Debra! Thank you for sharing what we are all experiencing right now at an overwhelming rate. Please don’t stop sharing the universal message. You are amazing!!!! Much love to you and stay strong so that we can all be strong too!

  • wendyleis2@gmail.com' Wendy Leis says:

    Thank you, Debra.
    I really enjoyed and resonated reading this article,
    “Cancer New Moon : The Art of Being Human”.
    According to most charts I have had done of my birth time
    ( 6th July, 1949 , 1:30 p.m. Newcastle, Australia )
    I am a Cancer Sun with the moon in Scorpio, and Scorpio rising,
    a big watery mess / miracle.,
    depending on how you look at it.

    So, thank you once again for sharing your learning and intuition
    Sincerely,
    Wendy Anne Leis

  • 3404wendy@gmail.com' Wendy says:

    Oh Debra, this message is your gift to us. I’m so sorry for your great loss. This moon in Cancer, conjuct Saturn often wishes for the release of tears, that will not come. Know that we are sending you a big embrace so you know it’s OK, no, it’s essential that you dignify each loss with the tears it deserves. There is so much love coming to you now.

    When I read this:
    Who is a role model for showing us how to feel, cry, laugh with full abandon, and lift up depression? No one.

    I think there is. with the many tributes for John Lewis who passed last night. A man with a thousand reasons to feel, cry, and laugh. What a legacy for a life so well lived.

    I’m sending you all the love and support you need right now. I hope you have all the support and understanding you need at this time, and can take time to reflect and feel sad for your losses.

  • ladyplantago@gmail.com' Sara says:

    Awesome. Loving this writing, Debra!!!

  • jcmagick@yahoo.com' Jacki C. Shaw says:

    Thank You for sharing, as always. In turn, I send you a warm, comforting hug along with a prayer… that your pain gently fade but the lessons remain. That your heart grows as much as your mind expands and that your lessons, from this point forward come with ease and comfort. I don’t believe that we must hurt to grow. That which we think becomes.

    Much Love and Many Blessings,
    Jacki C. Shaw

  • Kaescott2@bellsouth.net' Kat says:

    This was a deeply touching message, thank you, Debra. As a retired medical intuitive, for all the far off the norm perspectives out there right now, I think that my having consulted for hundreds over my lifetime, I have somehow managed to learn how to keep peace. That is–without selling myself short. On the other hand, I have also found my one time mini energy boundaries have turned into walls sometimes as of late. Remain true to yourself, Kat

  • fufina514@gmail.com' Debbie says:

    Ah, so that is what has been going on. I’ve been really looking at my feelings and wrestling with past patterns and trying to implement new ways. Realized sometimes action towards the new ways is actually sitting there not doing what I want to do. Doing the opposite of my old patterns.
