I now present to you the Cancer Mixtape for 2017
Funny thing about Cancerian energy. I feel like it’s always being mis-characterized.
In most Astrological observations, people always go straight for the standard “moody”, blah, blah, blah……
Frankly speaking, I don’t buy it. I think that line of thinking is reductive.
I won’t shrink you to someone whose emotional states change like the moon phases. I’d rather say that your Sun sign energy suggests an acute awareness of how quickly one’s feelings CAN change.
See…. There’s a difference.
To operate in its highest most functional state, you must put your heart into whatever you do and simultaneously assure yourself enough security and protection to shield you from much of the world’s insensitivities and lack of Emotional intelligence.
You naturally “get it” when it comes to vibes and intuition, and for that you should never apologize. In fact, you need to listen closely.
In itself, there’s nothing wrong with subjectivity, i.e. being influenced by one’s personal feelings, tastes and opinions. However, to be clear, you must also recognize that there’s always another side; one which exists outside of your private shell.
You may want to help, but some people don’t want or require it. You may feel that the world should share your love, hate, pain or whatever your feeling- this may not be so. Just realize that to live fully, you’ll have to come to terms with the dangers of emotional indulgence and how it can ebb, flow and fluctuate. Although it is a large part of what makes YOU – YOU, it’s not exclusively so, nor is it meant to dominate your entire being to the neglect of every other facet of you.
Your home is where the heart is and your place of safety inside yourself is designed to offer you unfathomable support, so you can give it to others who deserve the soft, sweet delicacy that resides within.
Enjoy your Mixtape.
