Full Moon in Cancer Lunar Eclipse: Wolf Moon Rising

There's been a lot of howling this past week. Howling and chaos. There's an inescapable and pervasive sense of anxiety that has us at each others' throats. Chasing our own tails. In hot pursuit of prey we've been tracking for miles, only to lose the scent. In heat, with no relief in sight. So, there's nothing left to do but howl.

The weeks leading up to this eclipse have certainly been intense with few breaks in between. All kinds of surprises, both helpful and the opposite of helpful, have become the norm. We're getting unsteady on our feet and punch drunk at this point. But we haven't lost our fight even while we're seeing double and throwing wild punches. It's too soon to throw in the towel.

This eclipse sees the culmination of this current phase which has been marked by the relentless Saturn/Pluto conjunction. While they have been together, they have been cleaning house. Foolishness which had gone unchecked for years has been finally been uncovered and is being ruthlessly punished. All the craziness which we accepted and just learned to live with is no longer acceptable as those situations are pushed to their utmost illogical extremes. They become unbearable.

None of the issues coming up right now are new. That's the crux of the problem. It's way past time for them to be resolved and wrapped up. However, we find ourselves relieving these nightmares repeatedly, compulsively even, because we just can't figure out how to break the cycle.

It's time to remember the wisdom of the past two lunations: we are our own saviors and we need to fight with integrity to protect the people and values we hold most dear. In holding on to those anchors, we can push through these extremes and find our way to the other side. That's how we'll find our second wind. That's where we will begin building when the howling time is over.
