The New Moon in Cancer occurs in the early morning on July 8, 2013 at 2:16am EDT (11:16pm PDT July 7). Cancer is a water sign that is associated with the mother, fertility, family, and calls us back to heal our “roots.”
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 the Cancer 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. Let go of any tendencies to take on other people’s battles and emotions and focus solely on healing your own.
Cancer also is ruled by the Moon. The light of the moon reflects our emotions and influences the water within our bodies. Learning to work with the lunar cycles is a powerful way to manifest your goals.
All water signs present a time for healing deep emotional issues because emotions are fluid like water and should move through the water in our body. 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 emotions typically less charged or excitable; allowing you to see more clearly. Take time to evaluate your goals and dreams. The New Moon in Cancer encourages introspection and creating a nurturing foundation that supports your growth.
Cancer also rules the 4th House – The House of Home and Family. Issues related to ancestry, heritage, roots, early foundation and environment, the caregiver of the household, and the end of cyclic matters. You may want to set goals related to healing these areas as Cancer will provide the support necessary to see your truth related to them.
Cancer also is associated with the 6th Chakra – the Third Eye. Consider lessons related to the mind, intuition, insight, and spiritual wisdom. Taylor your goals to focus on visualizing the ideal and use the Third Eye as a filter to express spiritual messages into physical form. The Third Eye also affects the Pituitary Gland, the sense of smell, nose, brain, eyes, and ears.
