New Moon in Cancer
July 17th @ 24* Degrees
11:31 AM PDT
New Moons are when both the Sun and Moon aligned 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!
During this time of Cancer,our feelings will need attending to.
Expressing them in loving, kind ways is our Best Practice!
Family, children, parents, and generational issues may resurface for you to take a look at and Heal.
Be Gracious….Practice random acts of kindness! Everyone needs a little love!
With so much change and turmoil happening in the world 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!
As you prepare for your NM Ceremony, know that Pluto (the powerful change agent) is part of this NM lunation……so, some chapter in your life that needs to close…. WILL! This Pluto opposition puts an end to a relationship, or a mode of being. When Pluto opposes the Sun/ Moon,we get fed up with the state of oppression and we want out…..whatever the cost may be! As you release and declare a situation over, let the drama go, and use the power of the New Moon to set intentions for what you DO want!
Additionally,there is a beautiful trine to Neptune…so no matter what happens, Spirit has your back…..be sure to lean into your Spiritual Practice, and ASK for heavenly assistance!!
The Best Crystals to use for this New Moon Cycle….
Moonstone is your most important stone to use… to set a new beginning, and it is the power stone for Cancer!
It helps to balance emotions,and keeps you on the path of your life’s purpose!
Rose quartz..the stone of unconditional love…We all need Love!!!
Malachite….to release and let go of what no longer supports you!
Amethyst….the Spiritual Stone…Protection, peace, calm, connection to higher realms!
Black Obsidian…draws off negativity…keeps you grounded!
Labradorite…The Magic Stone! Lets call a little magic in your home!
Selenite!….Brings in divine light!
You can use any or all of these for your intention ceremony!
