There's a second New Moon in Cancer tomorrow (28º 26'), Monday, July 20th at 1:33 pm (EDT). Two New Moons in the same zodiac season means something! The first one was the total solar eclipse on June 21st (refresh your memory about that one here). This time, we have another chance to go even deeper with Cancerian themes. Think about any intentions you set back in June, anything around the suggestions to use the nurturing energy to focus on how you care for yourself and others, what makes you feel safe and secure, and how you can communicate with yourself and others with more love. The energy of this New Moon is different. Mercury and Venus are now direct, eclipse season is over and this time the Sun and Moon are opposite the heavy hitters in Capricorn (Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto). The spotlight is on what's been getting excavated from the shadow. Oppositions (just like Full Moons 180º) are also considered tense aspects, but the energy is more about balance rather than problem-solving or action. It may be wise to reflect on what was revealed during the Mercury and Venus Retrogrades, as well as the extra long eclipse season, and modify your intentions accordingly. Hence the second chance!
This is a beautiful opportunity to take a beat and focus on your emotions, intuition, authenticity and vulnerability. Something more mature and secure can grow out of anything that has come up out of the shadows over the last couple of months. The reality is that another new beginning is here, and moving forward with balance and grace is the offering in the energy and experience.
Knowing where Cancer falls in your chart is also a wonderful way to set focused intentions for the New Moon. It would be an honor to help!
The Astrological Aromatherapy blend for this New Moon is the same, featuring German "Blue" Chamomile and Lavender. The new news is that they're now FOR SALE! There's still time to get the blend for this New Moon, as I recommend using it a few days before, the day of and a few days after the lunation.
Purchase the blend here!
The emotional energies we're collectively navigating are still intense. Much has come to the surface, and much more is yet to come. It is very important to be cautions with your words, but you may also have a newfound sense of courage to speak up, defend yourself or even others. Leo season begins on Wednesday! We'll be shifting from Water to Fire. More on that next time...
Live in touch with your Soul.
Nurturing New Moon Blessings from my Heart to yours,
