From around 8:16 p.m. (UK time) on 2 July 2019 the New Moon will be in the sign of Cancer so, time for an energy shift!
What is New Moon Energy?
New Moons are all about:
- fresh starts;
- setting your intentions as to how you will move forward from your current position;
- “planting seeds” to grow as the New Moon does.
It’s my absolute favourite Moon, full of promise and a chance to start again on a blank page.
What to Do in the New Moon Energy?
Questions to ask yourself at a New Moon:
- Where in my life could I “start again”?
- What can I do now to start over in this area of my life?
- When will be the best time to act on these intentions?
- How can I prepare to give myself the best opportunity of progressing in this area of my life at the right time?
If you did the groundwork at the Last Quarter Moon of reflecting and assessing progress to date, you will have a strong foundation to begin answering these queries.
Otherwise, that’s what you’ll need to reflect back on now before being best placed to answer these questions.
What About the Sign the New Moon is in?
With the New Moon in the sign of Cancer to begin with, the focus will be very much on home and family life and how you balance your responsibilities here with appropriate self-care and self-nurturing. The sign of Cancer has strong associations to maternal instincts, caring, protective tendencies but is at its best when it does so having first set down boundaries.
Cancer is a Water sign so think feelings, emotions, intuition and immense depth too in all these areas. A time to be with those who make you happiest to really enjoy the more positive aspects of Cancerian energies.
And There’s a Solar Eclipse
A total Solar Eclipse on 2 July 2019 really supercharges this New Moon energy by helping you do a life detox, getting rid of things that no longer serve you to create room for the things that do.
It’s a time of shaking things up, or forward progress and upgrading your life. A time when opportunity comes looking for you – in short, they are portals of change. You may discover your “life purpose” in these energies. A date with destiny. It may be a wake-up call to shake up a family or friendship dynamic.
The Takeaway: If you’ve been reflecting in the last week or so you can now deal with planning areas to adjust/improve in, especially around those closest to you, your friends and family.
Do make sure you have reflected on any lessons learnt to avoid repeating them in this new cycle in order to progress onwards.
With the Solar Eclipse, your plan may turn out to be quite radical and unexpected, so it may not be entirely well-received at first. It feels an exciting energy, where anything can happen; just be sure to prioritise home and family when it matters most.
Using this week as a time for planning progress in the next cycle will give people time to adjust to your unusual ideas, before actually implementing those plans in the better energy of the First Quarter Moon for taking action from 9 July 2019, if possible.
Stay connected to your home and family this week to really capitalise on breathing new life into these areas.
Until next time….
