I wanted to stop in on the weekend to offer up some love & guidance for this New Moon in Cancer happening on Monday July 4th at 7:00 am EST.
A New Moon in Cancer feels like home as the Moon rules the very emotional and sensitive sign of Cancer. This Moon grows our desire for nurturance, connections to family (or the familiar), and reminds us of the power of self-care.
Collectively we will all be feeling the hustle and bustle leading up to this New Moon as the moon travels through mind-centered Gemini first. If you're in the US, this weekend is Fourth of July weekend making it a very busy week for most as they prepare to travel, throw parties and then hopefully relax during the weekend and Monday. Anywhere you live I'm sure you can relate to that bustling energy before the release, like gearing up for a vacation. That's what we will be experiencing right now.
This is truly a gorgeous time for connecting to our emotions and feelings and understanding what they are trying to tell us and where they are trying to guide us.
We have the Sun, Mercury and Venus ALL hanging out in Cancer as well adding to this theme of nourishment and self-care in many areas of life. You'll be asked to let the feeling of the warm Sun dispel your stress, let Mercury encourages us to express our emotions, and Venus asks us to let ourselves be nourished further by the beauty in the world.
Make no mistake though, this is all fun and games though. There will be an opportunity to really go deep with the emotions that surface. AND transform them. We have transformation and lover of all things dark planet Pluto in Capricorn opposing this New Moon. So all that will create a space for shit to COME UP. And it may even be stuff that we've kept hidden or have feared. Don't be surprised if a few challenging moments come up during this time. Remember, our relationships can be reflections of something within, so make sure you're paying attention to what comes up while you connect with others. How do you feel? Is it how you want to feel? Do you need to let go of anything and stop taking things so personally? What's going on for you in the arena of your personal life?
While this opposition can cause some shit to stir up, giving us some lessons to learn from we will have help! Yay! This New Moon also creates a helpful trine to Neptune in Pisces. Neptune in Pisces is all about visualization, intuition and imagination. It's also a very deep, subconscious energy. It deals with some past life stuff and also our own past. This can really help us tap into our intuition and our subconscious as we pay attention to the feelings that come up for us. Let it guide you deeper as you will find some gems to heal and let go of.
Another helpful aspect comes from Jupiter in Virgo. Jupiter is the planet of good luck and expansion and Virgo is about health, service and day to day routines. This means we can make use of our emotions and feelings to guide us in creating a lifestyle that nourishes us on many levels. We'll have the chance to see where our day to day routines could use more self-care practices AND we can begin to see how our skills and what we feel most drawn to can help us be of service to the world.
Holy wow. Talk about feeling all the feels!
To add to the intensity we just had Mars go direct in it's home sign of Scorpio. THIS is where the passion comes in. The intensity. The drive. And the action. It's moving slowly through Scorpio but most of us have felt the kick and boost. Channel your emotions into what you are passionate about and if you don't know what that is (1) pay attention to what sparks you during this time and make note to look into it (2) MOVE YOUR BODY. Mars direct in Scorpio after 2 months of retrograde is sure going to add a little fire that wants to course through our veins, so let it. Do what feels good (even sexy) and let the energy move as energy always wants to move in some way. You may even find that your emotions, fears and concerns work themselves out through losing yourself in the beat of your steps while you dance or on the pavement.
Most importantly FEEL THE MAGIC IN YOUR BONES. If you're feeling crazy during this time, if it becomes overwhelming know that everything has a cycle and that you are doing nothing wrong. There's no right way to New Moon, especially with one as emotional as this. Try not to judge what comes us and do what you can to heal with it. All of this is here to remind us that above all else our self-care is at the top. When we can nourish ourselves and our home space we build strong foundations to build upon.
On another note, since Cancer rules the home don't be surprised if you get the urge to move, redesign or redecorate your home. All that energy and emotion will likely call us to make changes to our space to reflect how we want to feel!
