Your New Moon In Cancer Rituals…

Retreat Into Your Shell, Head To The Beach Or Settle Down To A Peaceful Place Hidden From View!

Write Down Or Clearly Affirm What You Hope To Bring About Or Manifest…

It’s Cancer Season and so the New Moon naturally occurs and resets the dial in Cancer, as the Moon aligns at the same degree as the Cancer Sun!

Read your horoscope for this lunation here, and use the stars on this day of still, dark and quiet to really work the celestial weather…

As a rule of thumb, New Moon’s are times to:

  • Set intentions, plants seeds, plan and go within,
  • Be still, grateful for what already exists,
  • Silently use your intuition to glean what more might occur,
  • Let go of expectations, release, surrender and exhale…

Here are my top 5 tips for the Cancer New Moon…

1. Gently Exhale – And Head To The Beach…

With the Luminaries in water you’ll want to hold onto something that reminds you to breathe.

Discover the perfect practice, a yoga sequence for Cancer season in the new segment on Star Sign Style, with Yogastrology, and head to the beach!

Ideally, gather toward family, whatever that means to you…

Armani describes it best:

“For me, family is everything, and it is as much a matter of blood ties as of ties built up over the years. The closest and most solid friendship bonds for me are few, but they are indestructible. In a broad sense, I also see my employees as family, because I feel a strong sense of responsibility as well as a moral and professional duty to take care of those who dedicate so much time and energy to the success of a company.” … “I would say that family is a unity of purpose, nourished by the sincerity of its feelings. Nothing is more sincere than the love and protection that parents give their children, and this shapes us forever. My nature, however, dictates that the family of emotional and intimate ties is small and close-knit, nurtured by loyalty and fidelity: these are the people I know I can count on truly and always, in any situation, and who in turn know that they can count on me.”

Gather toward a safe haven that draws on the inner, emotional realms – your own port in the storm…

2. Stay Sentimental…

Remember your mother or phone home, connect to generational lineage with a home cooked recipe passed down from those that have gone before you!

Feed, nourish and stay secure… Look through an old photo album or watch a movie that connects you to your history and past…

3. Write Down Your Intentions With Feeling, Using Intuition!

The New Moon is a powerful time for manifestation.

Put pen to paper, and actually write down your goals, planning for the 6 and 18 months ahead.

In six months time it will be the full moon in Cancer, and in 18 months we’ll see another full moon that more closely matches this degree of Cancer.

The Chariot Tarot card is the card associated and attributed to Cancer.

This is a card of success and spiritual evolution, taking action and moving forward.

The canopy of stars suggests a connection to the celestial world and the Divine, while the black and a white sphinx represent darkness and light, positive and negative – pulling in opposite directions. Note the person wearing armour adorned with two crescent moons, the Cancerian ruler.

We see water in the background: a wide river, suggesting a need to be ‘in flow’ while also charging ahead toward your goals and intentions…

The Four of Cups is the card for the Moon in Cancer, inviting a person toward new opportunities but the individual doesn’t accept nor refuse and reject the cups offered…

With arms crossed there’s a sense of protection; your cup is full, perhaps you have too much on your plate, or maybe you’re closed off.

There’s time for reflection, a pause – “not right now, but maybe later”…

Meditate on the themes of these two cards – realigning with your true wishes – and even pull them from your deck, set aside as a pair on the New Moon.

Ask:

  • Where am I closed off, and disconnected from my emotional self and inner truth? 
  • Where have I shut down and shut myself off from new opportunities because of hurt and rejection? [heartbreak, failures, disappointments]
  • How can I re-establish a connection to the Divine to get a greater sense of purpose and direction?
  • How can I learn from hurts, let go and surrender to avoid getting in the same predicament again?

Turning attention and energy internally, to realign, deciding what is truly important – don’t be afraid to decline projects that don’t align with your future path and this phase of your life.

Switch off from distractions allowing space to listen to your intuition, your own voice and inner knowing to gain more clarity.

Wait for a sign or further information before taking on an invitation or project, check in emotionally and spiritually before saying ‘yes’,

Bring attention inward, re-evaluating and contemplating your situation to find a deeper meaning in what you do.

Open up to the possibilities available to you and wish upon the New Moon!

4. Settle In, Nest & Rest…

The most important ritual to adhere to on this particular New Moon is taking a generous pause.

The new moon is the most low energy time of the month, when luna has disappeared totally from view.

Chill out.

5. Be Soft And Gentle

This is no time for hard lines or sharp edges – step into mushroom tones, soft flowing lines, peachy tones and hints of coral – and a smokey eye for the New Moon moment.

Use the Cancerian signature beauty style, a dark gaze and luminous skin…
