Tonight is a New Moon in Cancer. There is a wonderful sparkle to this New Moon. Something feels refreshing and even inspiring. Soak in the fabulous energy. Take time to be near water such as a stream, bath, lake, river, waterfall, rain, sea, or the ocean. It is helpful to attune yourself to the Cancer water element. Flow and be. This will refresh, renew, cleanse, and heal you.
This New Moon speaks of new life. It encourages us to have faith in our potential, alongside a deep resolve to ensure that potential is fulfilled. Just as an acorn contains the imprint of the tree it will become, so too do we contain our future selves in a form within us; waiting, slumbering, gestating, until the time is right to come forth into life and purpose.
In the darkness of this New Moon we are invited to dream our future selves into being. This is an intuitive Moon that has so much it wants to share and asks us to be ready to receive. The Cancer New Moon reminds us that no matter how much we resist change, the fact is the change has already happened. We are already transformed, we just haven’t realized it yet. It wants us to stop striving now, to relax, be still and recognize the deep peace within, in which our potential is coming forth. It tells us there is nothing to do and nowhere to go. At this moment, we have everything we need to be who we are meant to be. We are already complete.
The New Moon in Cancer is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Crab. These include honoring our deepest, most irrational and intimate feelings, recognizing the sense of security and safety we need from our homes, jobs, family, partners, and friends, allowing ourselves to accept support and offer support to others.
This New Moon we will feel emotional, our feelings will be pulled in all directions making our heads spin, but let them come through, don’t suppress them. Your feelings reveal what you truly love and value. They are your guidance system. Your passion for life is fueled by your feelings. They nourish your creative, artistic, and intuitive abilities. In fact, having all the wealth in the world does not matter if you do not feel good. Your feelings count. Trust your emotional instincts on this New Moon. Tap into your deepest, darkest feelings, for they will reveal who you really are and what you truly want.
Let the waters of Cancer wash over you and cleanse your spirit and soul.
Have a Blessed New Moon. May the Goddess watch over you.
