Beginning again and again and again *NEW MOON* SuperMoon in Cancer (June 24/25) on the heels of the Solstice, brings us an opportunity to begin again. She brings acknowledgement of our feelings and helps us uncover a deep seated remembrance that renews our connection with Source. Her gentle Life Wisdom returns us back home to our hearts. Cathy Pagano shares: “The Great Mother is cooking up a sweet and spicy stew for us. Its taste is fiery, bold, rich and sweet – a truly subtle blend of spices.. the Mind takes on a watery depth, dispersing through the stew to pick up intuitive clues about our emotional state...All in all, the Mother is offering us deeply satisfying nourishment at this Cancer New Moon. She can help us re-birth ourselves through a deeper, fuller connection to our soul’s desires. Because these Cancer planets are re-activating the deep energies of revolutionary awakening, remember that these emotional energies can scare you as well as enliven you. Try not to retreat behind Cancer’s hard shell when you fall into fear. Just let it flow out of you and acknowledge the experience. Don’t hold onto the emotions; rather, ride the waves... Let them wash through you and free your heart." Pat Liles shares "We are being supported by Saturn – tested and coached to find those frequencies that inspire our creativity, eliminate self criticism, and uproot our old beliefs, while Uranus demands from us radically shifting our perspectives, rebellion against the status quo, learning to live on the shaky ground of change, and calling in our freedom to radiate our brilliance." And Ellias Lonsdale on Cancer 3: “you are one-pointedly intent upon grasping the central message that what you weigh down by negative bias, by apprehension, and by dark conviction comes back to haunt you a thousandfold; while what you set free, by precise and accurate read-outs and follow through, becomes such a blessing that you swim in it forever. By witnessing exhaustively just how negative intent and affirmative intent work, intelligence is refined to the utmost, and the approach taken is optimized quintessentially and exquisitely.” Full download www.mysticmamma.com @mysticmamma
It is said that the origins of Genmaicha can be traced back to one fateful morning in 15th century Japan. A samurai, whose name has since been forgotten, was in a meeting with a group of fellow warlords to discuss a military campaign.
Green tea was served as a refreshment, as was the custom then. A servant of the samurai – by the name of Genmai – was in charge to pour the tea. When he came to his master’s cup to pour the tea, a few kernels of roasted rice fell out of his sleeve into the cup of the samurai. The rice, which he had put into his sleeve as a snack to nibble on during the day, proved to be a blessing for many generations of tea lovers to follow. But not so for poor Genmai.
In a sudden fit of anger about the “ruin” of his beloved tea (which was an expensive luxury at the time) he drew his katana (sword) and beheaded his servant. Ignoring the blood and corpse, he sat back down at the table and proceeded to drink his tea.
Much to his surprise, he discovered that the rice had transformed the tea and – rather than ruining it – had given the tea a flavour far superior to the pure tea. He felt instant remorse about the cruel injustice he had done to his servant and ordered this new tea to be served every morning in commemoration of his late servant. To honour his servant, he named the tea after him: Genmai-cha (lit. tea of Genmai).
