Kale is one of the best leafy green vegetables, considered a star amongst healthy-eaters. It is loaded with nutrients including potent phytonutrients from the Cruciferous vegetable family which includes broccoli, cabbage and bok choy.

As we enter the astrological month of Cancer, we get to work with the archetypal energy of Mother and the birth of our emotional bodies, the ability to integrate our soul’s purpose into consciousness.

We’re all familiar with the legend of the werewolf: On the night of the full Moon, some perfectly normal guy sprouts fur and fangs and turns into a vicious beast who goes on a killing spree. Well, if you’re the parent of a Cancer child, it would be wise to always keep this myth in mind. Not because your child is secretly a monster. No, because like the werewolf the Moon directly affects your child’s moods, and there’s really nothing you can do about the strong influence it has on your kid...
Editor's Note from Pat Lantz: The sign of Cancer, ruled by the Moon, represents our cyclical and fluctuating moods. It is a defensive and self-protective sign, and connecting with family and place of birth, helps Cancer keep continuity with emotional bonds from the past. Preserving memories and objects from the past is extremely comforting to those with a strong dose of Cancer. Remembering allows them to hold on to experiences and people so that they are never forgotten.
Look to the sign of Cancer, the Moon and 4th house to understand the past, emotional ties and relationship with family.

At the core of step 4 is the need to forgive and to cultivate compassion. We cannot move forward on our journey until we begin to release some of the blame, anger, and sorrow that we have gathered on the journey so far, both towards others and towards ourselves. This deeper state of acceptance and allowing is what propels us forward in our spiritual adventure.
Editor's Note from Pat Lantz: To first get an overview of what this journey is all about, read Melody’s introductory article, The 12 Steps of the Spiritual Journey.

A cancer diagnosis brings overwhelming feelings, a multitude of appointments, a sense of managing a second job for which the pay is fatigue, possible hair loss and a tired debit card laden with co-pays. As an oncology social worker and journal group facilitator, my goal with survivors is often focused on finding an action plan grounded in self-care amidst this flurry of activity...
