Friday the sun and moon conjunct, and we have June’s super new moon in the intuitive and peaceful sign of Cancer. Cancer is the sign of the Sacred Feminine, and the moon feels at home here in her own sign.
New moons, as always, marks the beginning of a new cycle, and being the second super new moon in a row, this Cancer moon is truly a time of transformation and renewal. May and June’s super new moons have given us a change of energy, and together with the powerful energy of the recent summer solstice, this new moon brings you every opportunity to close all unfinished business and start a brand-new chapter in your life.
Halfway through 2017 is the perfect time to do some personal inventory, and as you soak up the soft energy of the emotional and nurturing Cancer moon, take time to pause whatever you are doing, and truly feel into yourself. Honor your deepest, most intimate, emotions, and allow yourself to be vulnerable, accepting support from your loved ones if you need. After all, the Cancerian energy is all about looking after ourself and others, so give yourself permission to take a time-out and recharge your batteries with family and loved ones this weekend. Only when you take time to slow down, can you find time to heal, so relax, restore and take things at your own pace. Be patient with yourself, and create a safe space for whatever emotional mending you may need at this time.
With the new moon in close alignment to Mercury, the planet of communication, the cosmos should give you the gentle push you need to express your hearts wishes. If you start to feel guilty, remember the importance of filling up your own cup first. An empty cup has nothing to give, while feeling full, sharing from the love that flows over, will benefit yourself, as well as those around you. And, no one should have to be strong all the time. Not even you. Bend so you don’t break, as they say. Showing vulnerability is true strength!
This is a weekend to nurture your self-belief. Breathe in self-love and truly acknowledge yourself as already whole and perfect. With this potent new moon energy, you have every chance to make a significant change, benefitting you well beyond Friday’s super new moon. It’s a time to move gently and with courage in the direction of your dreams, knowing that as long as you listen to your heart and soul, you cannot go wrong. Follow your heart and live your passion. The time has come to believe in your own magic.
