New Moon In Cancer
Author: Martine Cameau
Close your eyes, take a deep breath down to your belly and allow yourself to feel the feels of this watery moon.
We are so fortunate to have the opportunities to reset ourselves and explore our inner guidance with each new moon. New moons in Cancer are particularly special as our beautiful Luna finds her home here. We have moved out of the heady and excited Mercurial energy of Gemini and into the divine femininity of the moon.
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind with a few planets in retrograde challenging us to be clear with our intentions regardless of what is going on around us. Our priorities and values were challenged, our communication was in disarray, and for some of us, unlearned lessons resurfaced to bring to our awareness outdated cycles that no longer serve us, in our relationships, homes and/or workplaces.
Cancer rules the 4th house of family, femininity, foundation, the home, mothers and children, self-care, and EMOTIONS.
You may experience triggers or challenges in these areas at this time. These emotional ebb and flows are here to serve and heal you. They are being brought to the forefront to be acknowledged, addressed, and set free! Things may be brought into your awareness that lead you to revisit your foundation and its importance in your life, or perhaps to consider your relationships with the feminine in your life. While this can mean family, coworkers, friends or partners, this could also signify the balance of feminine vulnerability within the self. With both the sun and the moon in Cancer, water signs (Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio) will be most affected at this time. Drop into your intuition and release the attachments that you have to outdated narratives surrounding these themes.
Celebrate this energy with all things water and feminine: A flower petal bath, floral essence aromatherapy, or a dip in the moon charged ocean. To balance the energy with crystals, Moonstone, Opalite and Citrine are amplified at this special time. Rose quartz for your heart if you are experiencing traumatic emotional wounds.
