New Moon in Cancer - Let your heart guide you
Did you have a bit of a mood swing today? You might have blamed lack of sleep or that you were hungry but it was most likely the energy from our the moody Cancer coming into play as we get ready for the new moon tonight.
If you are familiar with the phases of the moon than you know the new moon brings darkness to our sky. I have always felt more connected to the new moon, the new moon brings up what we have been neglecting. I often forget to track the moon phases but when I have an off day I know something is up.
Even this morning, I have been putting off some paper work for weeks now but I woke up this morning with the dive to do it (thanks new moon). I love this time to reflect and get caught up on things that we know are holding us down. The new moon is essential so you can enter the full moon with no baggage, I highly suggest always using the new moon to listen and focus on what you need to do. It is a very good time to release.
“I don't want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”
― Oscar Wilde,
With tonights moon being in Cancer we will most likely feel the effects of this moon more than usually since the sun is also in Cancer. We will most likely be feeling a bit more sensitivity than usual, but the duo Cancer energy can also be very productive. Use this time to connect with old friends, handle task that you have been putting off and show gratitude to those around you. Cancer has us thinking with our hearts, so any love and effort shown will be well received.
This is also a good time to indulge in your own self care rituals, show yourself some love too! The moon cycles are great time to write, with each moon phases its great to reflect back on your emotions and your goals for each season. If you haven't started a moon journey tonight might be a great time to start. (Let me know in the comments if you would love a post on journeying during each cycle). The new moon is your monthly opportunity for quiet self-care and there's nothing quite as restorative as reminding yourself of your accomplishments.
We have loved Cancer season, and with our emotions running high I think after this new moon we are all going to be happy to welcome Leo. As you know we have a Zodiac Collection, if you want to connect further with your Cancer energy or go straight into Leo now is the perfect time to get a bar. Moonlit Harbor is here till the 22nd, and Kingdom Within just arrived yesterday! Both are great to add to your life. I hope you enjoyed and I wish you a wonderful New Moon!
