July 12th/13th, depending on where you are in the world, the sun and moon conjunct, and we have July’s 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 a partial solar eclipse as well as a new moon, this Cancer moon is truly a time of transformation and renewal. Eclipses always brings with them the opportunity for us to close all unfinished business and start a brand-new chapter in our life, and, as the first of three eclipses this summer, this new moon definitely has the power to create change for you!
About halfway through 2018 this is a perfect time to do some personal inventory as well. 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 ourselves and others, so give yourself permission to take a time-out and recharge your batteries with family and loved ones this weekend. Relax, restore and take things at your own pace, as only when you take time to slow down and nurture yourself can you find time to heal. Be patient with yourself 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. More importantly 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 and eclipse energy, you have every chance to make a significant change, benefiting you well beyond the 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.
