The Cancer New Moon calls for a clean slate!
This New moon is the perfect time to reset!
In astronomy, the new moon is the first lunar phase, when the Moon and Sun are in equal ecliptic longitude. At this phase, the moon itself is not visible to the unaided eye, but its presence may be detected by its frequency to insight change. Though we may not be able to see it, it's vibrations bring release, change and new beginnings.
Cancer is a cardinal water sign and rules over our inner most feelings and emotional stability. This lunar position will stir up a plethora of conflicting emotions, so hang tight, you will be tested! Time to address the past and finally put it behind you. Don't fret too much, this too shall pass and resolving that past trauma will reward you with a new sense of freedom. Stay productive and positive in all things.
New moons are a great time to cleanse, purge and declutter your living space. A Cancer New Moon in particular, rules the home and our day to day living. It signals us to organise our personal matters and get our home life in order. It is an auspicious time to address important family issues, conflicts or grudges that need forgiveness, even with family member that are no longer with us. Time to forgive and forget. Working on the family or living dynamic in your home is important now and will set the tone for the rest of the summer. Don't be afraid to also set boundaries and find your own inner peace.
This lunar phase will open doors that we thought were previously locked. New opportunities and unexpected people will come into picture very soon. Revisiting an old relationship may help us evolve, but take it as a lesson learned and keep moving on. With Pluto in Sagittarius, tempers may flare and there could be some drama in personal relationships or at work. Mars in Pisces keep us cool by bringing out our more compassionate side. Cultivate patience with difficult co-workers or family members. Your good deeds will come back to you in the form of much needed help in an opportune moment. Engage in random acts of kindness, such as stopping to help someone with their flat tire, buying a friend a coffee, or donating to a local animal rescue. Its an imperative time to reap love and harmony in the world.
Cancer, sign of fertility, motherhood, and birth, clashes with the darker aspects of the feminine in the Black Moon Lilith placement. Black Moon Lilith represents the woman scorned. The dark side of this wild feminine energy is likened to the goddess of miscarriages, barrenness and destruction, Kali. Not surprising that this is occurring during the US's overturn of Roe vs. Wade and the current suppression of the feminine. A balance of the universal masculine and feminine frequencies is crucially needed right now. Self expression and personal freedoms are being tested. Stay convicted to your beliefs and concise in your communication.
Use this new moon to reevaluate what you really want and need in your life. Are obstacles really holding you back or is it your own unresolved issues? Be true to you as hard as the may seem right now. Time to do the work and deal with its unpleasantries...the trash will not take itself out! Release old patterns and trauma to make space for exciting, upcoming changes in your life.
Tumultuous emotions and memories might come up during these next few days, but just ride that wave, allow yourself to feel and then let it all go! Time for a clean slate. Start fresh and make new plans. You have the power to reestablish your inner calm in every moment. Don't forget it!
Journalling is a great way to observe your thoughts and cultivate inspiration. Make a list of actions or things you think may improve your quality life and set new goals around obtaining them. Get a haircut, try a new Yoga class or try cooking a new exotic dish! Spend time cleaning your dwelling space, buy yourself fresh flowers or re-arrange your furniture to embrace the transformative frequency of the new moon vibes. Cultivate a healthy gratitude for your home and watch as new energies and opportunities manifest all around you.
Happy New Moon!
