In this blog I'm going to share what to expect with the next New Moon in Cancer and what I recommend to to leverage the powerful energies it brings, plus I'll share a New Moon Ritual that you can use to ground your next set of goals and intentions.
It's a Retrograde and Eclipse season which means there's much going on with this next New Moon which sees its peak on Sunday 21st at 07.41 UK time. We have 5 planets in retrograde - Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury another Eclipse right on the Summer Solstice too!!
What does this mean? Eclipses are gateways for change and allow us to shine the light on what is hidden and buried deep in the shadows - so you're more likely to need to deal with the suppressed aspects of yourself and whatever triggers you personally or collectively over the next couple of weeks. As if we hadn't had enough already!!!!
NOW IS THE TIME TO LOOK AT YOUR FAMILY PATTERNS AND DISCERN WHAT YOU'D LIKE TO RELEASE!!!
Cancer is a Water sign and denoted by the Crab - hard exterior but soft on the inner. Cancer is linked with Family, Emotions and Fertility, so family relationships will be a focus at this time. Be mindful how you balance your needs with those of others are you 'over giving' to the point of sacrifice? With an Eclipse thrown into the mix you may feel you're on an emotional rollercoaster if you need to review your family ties, conditioning and roots.
It’s said whatever happens around an Eclipse is fated and helps us align with our higher purpose, calling and path....... take notice of what is happening for you this month especially around the Summer Solstice on the 21st. It could be a game changer.
Boundaries - May be needed now as we consciously focus our attention so our own self care. Cancer is the sign of the Divine Mother so if you’re not feeling nurtured and cared for by others make it a priority to review what you need from others, communicate that and also do it for yourself. For those who have been playing and working hard it’s time to rest or you could be on for burnout, so take time to rest and have time off.
Declutter - This new moon may give us the urge to have a deep clear out - whether in the home, PC, car, stories, patterns and habits, now is a time to really go for it. Also consider situations and relationships that are long past their sell by date that are keeping both parties stuck. When we have a good clear out, we allow in new energy which supports us feeling lighter and more able to manifest our new moon dreams and intentions.
USE THE COMPASSION AND LOVING ASPECT OF THIS MOON TO LET GO OF OLD RELATIONSHIPS & HABITS
Showing Forgiveness - Cancer the crab is family, friend orientated sign forgiveness and compassion have the opportunity to feature this month too. Old relationships from the past may come back into your life old hurts may surface. Take a pause and be mindful of your usual reaction, see if you can offer forgiveness or compassion instead? Sometimes taking the softer approach and giving someone a hug has a greater chance of dissolving anger and tension and a more harmonious solution reached.
Why Me? - Falling into the trap of feeling a victim ‘poor me’ may rise at this time. Be honest with yourself and take responsibility for that situation. Why did that happen? What didn’t you see? What can you do to change it? When we take this approach we empower ourselves to create more positive change. If you wanted help with this I’d be happy look into your Akashic Record to see if there are any past old life programs and patterns running.
Review Your Goals - Cancer is one of the most dynamic and tenacious signs so review your yearly or even last month goals. Are you where you want to be right now? Nothing is set in stone, tweak what needs to be changed and continue with renewed optimism and motivation.
MY TOP TIPS FOR THIS NEW MOON
🌙 Get Creative - Use the energy of the Summer Solstice and this New Moon to birth something new.
🌙 Find Water - As this is a water sign any connection with water is beneficial now - being by the see, by a brook or taking a long bath. New ideas and creativity are likely if you spend time near water this month.
🌙 Family Time - There maybe an urge to spend more time with family and loved ones and if there isn’t then consider it anyway especially if you intuition is hinting on it. Have Fun!!!
🌙 Your In Charge - You choose how to react in any given situation will be hard and tough like the crabs exterior or soft and gentle like the inner? During this time you will be more conscious of how you respond.
🌙 Be Grateful - Look for the blessings in everything you have. This new moon can be emotional at times and at times we may forget how much we truly have, how far we have come and how much support we have from others. The moment you start to say ‘I am blessed, I love my life’ then we see with more clarity.
🌙 Go With The Flow - Crabs walk sideways, so don't expect your journey to be straightforward all of the time, be willing to surrender to the process and you will still reach your goals.
NEW MOON RITUAL
🌙 Light a candle or some incense, grab your pen and paper and a brew
🌙 Now take 5 mins to calm your mind and breath slowly in and out
🌙 Take a look at last months intentions - Did you achieve all that you set out to? Do you need to remove points that no longer resonate with you?
🌙 Write your new intentions out as if you already 'HAD' them in your life and also thinking about how it will feel to have them too - THIS IS A KEY ASPECT TO THIS RITUAL
🌙 Say them out loud to the sky and then 'Thank' the Universe for all that you currently have in your life.
🌙 If you wanted to feel the energy of this new moon you could place a bottle of still mineral water in glass out for 3 days - a day before till a day after the new moon and then enjoy over the next week. If placed in pure white spirits it will last longer.
