Wednesday, June 29th, the sun and moon conjunct, and we have June’s new moon in the sign of the Sacred Feminine; intuitive and peaceful Cancer.
New moons, as always, mark the beginning of a new cycle, and with la Luna being the ruler of Cancer, June’s new moon is truly a time of transformation and renewal. The moon feels at home and powerful here in her own sign, and together with the magical 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 2022 is also the perfect time to do some personal inventory. Work with the water-energy of Cancer; draw yourself a bath, and soak up the soft energy of the nurturing Cancer moon. This is a time to pause whatever you are doing and truly feel into yourself. See if you can honor your deepest, most intimate, emotions, and allow yourself to be vulnerable – accepting support from your loved ones if you need. The Cancerian energy is all about looking after ourselves and others, so give yourself permission to take a time-out and recharge your batteries with family and loved ones.
Stop glorifying busy and sit down for a minute. This is a moon to restore and relax, and I hereby give you permission to do as little as possible for the next lunar cycle. To take things at your own pace. To breathe. To slow down. To heal. Because only when you take time to slow down, can you find time to heal.
And be patient with yourself through the process. Treat your inner child with all the love it deserves and create a safe space for whatever emotional mending you may need at this time. 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. Besides, 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 ♡
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 the Cancer new moon.
Keep in mind though – as both the sun and moon will square Jupiter in Aries – to keep it real and realistic, and to stay grounded through it all. Squares to Jupiter are known to easily activate our blind spots and make us slightly overambitious if we are not careful.
My advice is to be bold, but wise as you pursue your dreams this summer. And as long as you take your time to slow down and listen to your heart and soul before making any radical new decisions, you cannot go wrong.
Now be the hero(ine) of your own life and go create some magic ✨️
Blessed be and happy New Moon ♡

MYSTICA 100h Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
The Magic begins on October 26th
Have you been thinking of expanding your way of teaching or practicing yoga, in a way that meets with the mystical? Do you feel called to weave mysticism and rituals into your yoga classes? To practice and teach more in harmony with our Earth’s and our own bodies’ rhythms and cycles? Welcome to the Advanced Yoga Teacher Training that embodies and honors the seasons, the cycles, and the magic of the phases – both in nature and in our bodies.
As the seasons change, so do we. We humans are intricately a part of nature, of Mother Earth and her cycles, and as such we are not meant to have the same focus or the same yoga practice throughout the year. This is what inspired us to create MYSTICA: A 100h advanced vinyasa-based yoga teacher training, which brings in the seasons, the cycles, and the magic of the phases – both in nature and in our bodies.
