Cancer 

For December 2012

The world is your mirror. It is therefore the place to extend any compassion or appreciation that you have discovered on your journey to wholeness. Self-love emerges from your center, though if it's to be meaningful—indeed, if it exists at all—it will extend beyond you into the gentle embrace of the people around you. One indication that you're doing this is that you find yourself treating people on equal terms. The usual hierarchies and pecking orders of life give way to the understanding that we are all on the same journey, that we all contribute to one another's lives, that we all reflect one another. While I am not suggesting that there is absolute equality among all of your relationships, they are a lot less different from one another than you may imagine. And the one thing they all have in common is you. In this way, the compassion that you offer to yourself extends out to others the moment that you feel it—unless you feel threatened and choose to hold back. I suggest you notice if you're doing that, because when you hold onto defensiveness, attachment, fear or guilt in "someone else," you're really holding onto it within yourself. They want to be free from their pain, and want to be close to others, just as much as you do. For anyone to feel secure in this world is as meaningful as your own need to. If you think you take risks, consider that others may take even greater risks. If you want the privilege of vulnerability, extend your hand. Take off your glove first.

    Know what you have to offer. You will feel relevant in your relationships based on what you give; not what you take, or ask for, or expect.
