A popular trend right now is the Swedish concept called Hygge, which means, "a mood of coziness." Hygge is all about creating a space that caters to your well-being by bringing in little creature-comfort details like cooking a simple but hearty stew and baking fresh bread on a cold winter night...cozying up your home with softness of a plush fleece throw and glowing candles on the fireplace mantel...spending quality time with the ones you love...all are fodder for an illuminating Full Moon in Cancer experience.
During the Cancer Full Moon, we may feel like homebodies. In the literal sense we are tidying up and cozying our nest. And in the metaphorical sense, we retreat inward and tend to our insecurities by soothing them over with compassion and acts of self-care. The full moon draws our deepest sentiments to the surface, whether "good" or "bad," and at this full moon, we are reminded that if there were no contrast, we would not be motivated to find comfort.
This moon reminds us to create safe and cozy spaces that nourish the soul, and to surround ourselves with loved ones who really "get you." Let this Full Moon illuminate the ways you shelter and soothe your weary heart by turning inward. Making a hearty stew does so much more than just nourish the body-- it warms the heart and soul while also sending the message to your loved ones that you care about their overall well-being, too.
The Cancer Full Moon is all about nurturing your loved ones and tending to domestic matters. It can be an emotional moon, and you may be extra sensitive to the needs of those around you. But you may find that spending time with your family -- or your Soul Family-- is hygge for your heart!
Pearls are a symbol of our primordial origins. Made of grit and irritation (quite literally), pearls are a reminder to find the purpose in the pain AND that anything worth creating is worth protecting.
Pearls are symbolic representations of the feminine pleasure center-- that is, the clitoris which was designed for no other clear purpose than to feel ecstasy. Using pearls as your focal talisman during a Cancer Moon event is a great reminder to enjoy the little things in life -- for the little things are a big deal!
