Cancer New Moon 6 degrees
June 27th @ 1:08 AM PDT
As we prepare for this New Moon ceremony in Cancer, it is a perfect time to reflect (Mercury is still in Retrograde) on all that has occurred in the first 6 months of the year. The Grand Cross has been relentless in presenting us with challenges, changes, and new directions, urging us forward! Starting July 1, Mercury goes direct. New ideas and pathways will become crystal clear and open up easily and quickly. Best practice is to take time NOW to plant your intentions and desires in the fertile energy of this new moon.
The Highlight for this ceremony is on the qualities of Cancer. She is ruled by the moon, is a water feminine sign and her domain is our home, family, internal structures, root beliefs, safety, intimacy/caring, feelings/moods, and nurturing, both giving and receiving. This is the last few weeks of Jupiter transiting in Cancer, and this benevolent expansive energy will be close by to insure our intentions, desires, and work in these areas won’t go UN-noticed. As a side note, Jupiter won’t be back in Cancer for 12 years, so take advantage of these last few weeks and soak it up!
This month has been about listening –IN. Healing happens when we listen deeply and respond from the Heart! We are here now to create a new way of BEING on our beautiful planet…one that is loving, nurturing, protecting, and powerfully aligned with family, friends, and our global community. This strong Cancer New Moon is asking us to BE in our HEARTS and move from that place in all ways.
As always, remember to do your ceremony at the exact time or AFTER. Not before. You can make your lists and prepare, but do it after!
New Moons occur every 29 1/2 days when the moon aligns with the sun in each of the 12 signs. It is a natural time of new beginnings. The ancients used the timing of the moon as a way of life, from planting to sowing to celebrating. New Moons are about starting anew. Be clear, set your intentions, see and feel them complete, and trust the universe to do the rest!
