On New Moons release the past, any habits, conditioning, thoughts, beliefs that aren’t authentic or no longer serve you. At this time the Moon and Sun are united at the exact same degree in the sky, both their lights blocked from our sight, merging both conscious and unconscious aspects of our mind. Energy is bought into a contemplative, reflective and quiet mood.
This makes rich soil for contacting your inner/higher self/subconscious, planning and setting foundations and goals for your path.
Write down what you are releasing, then burn them as you visualise and feel yourself let go with love and gratitude for how they have served you up until now.
New Moons are about Manifesting, so next plant the seeds of intention you want to sew, then water them with action. Write up to 10 intentions or affirmations to bring into your life over the next six months, by the Full Moon in CANCER. This is when the Sun & Moon are opposite each other at their extreme ends of mutual polarity.
To take it a step further, draw or make a vision board for your plans, make sure you add a fruition date. Add potency by fuelling your vision with strong emotions, work in the positive rather than from a place of lack, fear etc. What ever seeds you sew in the mix will most likely germinate so make sure you cultivate exactly what you want.
Focus on areas and approaches that CANCER rules, such as:
Internal emotional frame of reference
Sensitivity to others feelings
Mother / Mother figure
Home Business/small business
- “I easily find myself living in the right happy home for me, exactly where I need to be, at a price I can easily afford”
- “I experience security, joy, love, nurturing and nourishment in my home”
- “I easily find myself listening to and honouring my gut instincts to the letter”
- “I have a deep inner sense of love, security and safety”
- “I easily protect myself in wholesome ways”
- “I easily become conscious of my early childhood conditioning in a way that liberates me into new healthier patterns”
- “I easily find myself experiencing a reciprocal feeling of caring in all my relationships”
- “I easily find myself being vulnerable in a way that evokes positive acceptance from others”
- “I easily find myself consciously aware of how I’m feeling in various life situations”
- “I consciously, consistently find myself communicating my feelings in responsible, appropriate ways”
- “I easily find myself experiencing the tenderness of deeply caring about someone else”
This Months New Moon finds communication planet Mercury sidled up close for a group hug. One things for sure, we’ll all be talking about our feelings! Feeeel your feelings. Slather on the compassion. One of the best peices of advice anyone ever gave me, and one I can’t share enough. Then talk about them. Write them down in a journal if you prefer them to remain private. Feelings are meant to flow, or they back up like a canel or river becoming fetid then overflowing causing chaos. Feel them and let them flow, let them go.
Chiron the planet of healing our wounds, and sometimes straight up wounding is in peace-out-Pisces, forming a tense aspect (square) to the New Moon/Sun and Mercury. This suggests there are/is an emotional wound or componant that needs tending. If anything is triggered for you its simply an opportunity to dig it out, talk it out, journal it out so you can step up to the next level. See a professional to help with techniques and tools, and to guide you if you really want to pull out any thorns for good, or move forward in your life where you may have been stagnating for fear of pain. You become the healer of others in the same predicament once you graduate a challenge.
On another note, the sign of Cancer rules babies and mothers..those experiencing this New Moon in an easy flow (trine or sextile, conjunction) may find they have a new baby to care for (fur baby anyone?) or are perhaps someones new object of nurturance. Notice a new mother figure in your midst?
Mother issues? The square to chiron suggest you have an enforced opportunity to heal here. Make the best of it rather than let the opportunity slip away. Not easy but always worth it.
Lets get Specific
If you know the ‘house’ or area of your life this Moon falls in, you can set specific intentions for that. Eg 2nd house is values and money..which could be committing to nurturing and valuing gut instincts, your nurturing capacity to help your earning capacity so that these things grow together and you set your intention, vision and goals on harnessing them. In the 7th house of partnerships you would set intentions on having that cosy home environment with a partner who gives and receives nurturance, whom you always feel safe and emotionally secure with, and likes some good cuddle time on the couch. In the 10th this could be a seedling new business or business/career opportunity. With New Moons you may only realise in retrospect that a change, person or circumstance has grown into something great.
Where does the New Moon fall for you? Have you noticed any endings = new beginnings, or felt like its time to start something you’re ready to put a lot of love and care into growing?
With Care & Love,
