The New Moon in Cancer occurs this week. The moon is our constantly changing companion. She effects are moods, and encourages us to take note of our emotions. Emotions are least influenced during the time of a New Moon and are heightened by a Full Moon. As the emotional filters are reduced during a New Moon, we see ourselves, our goals, and our path more clearly.
Each New Moon travels through a particular astrological sign which also influences us and our world. Learning to work with these energies helps navigate the ebb and flow of life. The New Moon in Cancer occurs on Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 12:24am EDT (July 18, 2012 at 9:24pm PDT). Cancer is a water sign that is associated with the mother, fertility, family, and calls us back to heal our “roots.”
Cancer teaches us to embrace the Divine Feminine. During this lunar cycle you may be seeking comfort within your home, a desire to connect deeply with your mother, or looking a way to create a cozy environment. It’s a good time to heal external relationships related to the mother, as well as, embracing the Inner Mother, and nurturing yourself.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Cancer (the crab) often sidesteps deep emotional issues. Instead of avoiding emotions that are coming up use this introspective time to explore deep emotional wounds that desire your attention. These three steps are a guideline to resolving old emotional wounds:
1) Journal to clearly identify and express your emotions
2) Ask your Creator to remove the old emotions during meditation or yoga
3) Ask your Creator to replace the old emotions with the ones you want
During this lunar cycle you may also feel more attune to other people’s emotions and pick up the mood of the room, as Cancer has an empathic quality to it. Take a step back and sort through what you’re feeling to ensure the emotions are yours instead of those of others. All water signs present a time for healing deep emotional issues because emotions are fluid like water. As we release emotional wounds, manifesting becomes easier because the blocks between you and what you want are removed.
Each New Moon is a time of new beginnings, or revisiting existing goals. It’s a time of planting seeds of what you want to accomplish during the coming month. The time around the New Moon is less emotionally charged, allowing you to see more clearly the path to take. Take time to evaluate your goals and dreams. The New Moon in Cancer encourages introspection and creating a nurturing foundation that supports your growth.
