08 Jul A Chance to Heal | New Moon In Cancer
Hey Astro Friends,
Have you been feeling the need to be resilient lately?
There is honour in keeping it together while the chaos of the world pushes you to your limits.
Yet the other side of the coin is exhaustion…
If you feel like the pressure is weighing you down, then the softness of the nurturing New Moon in Cancer on July 10th is the medicine that you need.
New moons are a perfect time to turn over a new leaf. They allow you to set intentions and plant seeds for a new direction. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, meaning that you will be supported emotionally during this time.
This is the perfect time to nestle down, enjoy creature comforts, have a little cry, and then begin planning projects that will nurture your soul.
Your opportunity is amplified by a pleasant aspect to Uranus, which gives you an unexpected perspective that will allow you to approach things differently.
The energy is refreshing, however due to a heavily aspected Venus, changes won’t happen overnight. Instead, the process will be slow burning. Trust that it is bringing you into alignment with your destiny.
Recharge Your Batteries
When you are exhausted, the first place you notice the effects is your body.
Not only are you overworking, but the likelihood of you nourishing yourself with good food and sleep starts to fall rapidly.
I mean, it’s easier to order take out after a long day than it is to cook. As for sleep… Well, that’s difficult if your mind is racing a million miles per hour.
However, this new moon is offering you a refreshing opportunity to switch gears into more self care.
Cancer symbolizes the home, including your own body. This means the coming days will be an ideal time to replenish and readjust your lifestyle, so you can better nurture your wellbeing.
Will you take advantage of it?
Scheduling time to practice self-care during this new moon could help your emotional and physical wellbeing!
Ideas to utilize this energy include spending quality time with your loved ones, treating yourself to a spa day, or journaling about your feelings.
Don’t be surprised if you shed a tear around this time. Like the crab, sometimes you can carry a hard outer shell, yet the softness inside needs to be felt for you to grow.
Feel Your Emotions
Be soft with yourself and nurture your needs.
With Uranus’ positive influence there is a tremendous opportunity to see things in a new light and then approach them differently.
As the Cancer New Moon is an intuitive placement, you could use this time to understand how areas in your home life aren’t working. With Uranus’ influence, you may be tempted to make sudden changes.
Remember you hold the key; you don’t have to make changes right away. The New Moon opens a doorway for you to connect to your intuition and see the potential of the next six months. When the time is right, trust that your decision will unfold naturally.
Alongside the new moon there will be a heavily aspected Venus, which could cause you delays in the form of finances or relationship instability.
Be wary of giving into feelings of frustration or anger. Chances are you could be masking sadness with anger. Allowing yourself to feel your emotions could be the doorway to getting to the heart of the issue.
This is why it is important to make time to rest. You may be tempted to open discussions with your loved ones around this time, however waiting till Mercury enters Cancer on the 12th of July will be beneficial as it will support you in being understood.
Time To Speak Your Truth
When Mercury enters Cancer we can articulate our feelings better. It helps us to feel mentally connected to one another. Therefore the likelihood of you being understood is amplified!
An opportunity to speak your truth is opening for you! The best way to achieve it, is to make the most of the New Moon by setting intentions, relaxing, and nourishing your emotional needs.
If you don’t, the likelihood of grumpiness, or lashing out increases.
If you do, you may find that you can speak calmly and effectively.
The best part is, Mercury will be in Cancer till the 28th of July, so don’t worry if you don’t feel ready to have any conversations right away.
The new moon is the portal into more heartfelt communication, and the opportunity will be open for a few weeks. It may not happen right away, but you do have some deep and meaningful conversations to look forward to this month!
You Deserve to Feel Good
If you have been pushing yourself to exhaustion, this is your reminder that you are doing a brilliant job! Your efforts deserve to be rewarded and you are the best person to do it!
Fancy a bubble bath? Do it!
Fancy a night with your favourite films? Do it!
Fancy a game night with your loved ones? Do it!
Your life is meant to be enjoyed! Yes, sometimes responsibilities, finances or health may put your joy on the back burner, but you have the capabilities to bring it back.
I believe in you.
You deserve to feel comfort, and are worthy of all the rewards your soul is craving!
