New Moon in Cancer
June 28th @ 7 Degrees
7:52 PM PDT
New Moons are when both the Sun and Moon align in the same sign, offering us an opportunity to hit the re-set button, re-think and renew our ideas and commitments in the area where this alignment occurs. This month its Cancer. So, our focus turns to home, family, belonging (or not) and what makes us feel safe and secure.
The comforts and familiarity of home and spending time in the garden or nature is pulling at our hearts! This is a very instinctual pull, and can be a time of profound healing that takes place quietly, deep within us as we allow our family……or……nature to make us feel loved, safe, and protected!
Our feelings will need attending to.
And, expressing them in loving, kind ways is our Best Practice!
Family, children, parents, generational issues, may resurface for you to take a look at and Heal.
Be Nice….Practice random acts of kindness! Everyone needs a little love!
There is so much change and turmoil happening in the world, so it is super important to take the time to make your home feel safe and welcoming. A place for all your family to relax and feel loved! This Cancer New Moon is the perfect time to reset!
At the same time, Neptune, the most Spiritual of planets, stations Retrograde thru 12/3/22.

First….you might feel extra tired….don’t worry, just plan less activities, and rest for the next few days.
