The New Moon in Cancer occurs on July 15 at 6:24 pm PDT/ 9:24pm EDT/ July 16 th at 1:24am GMT.
Cancer is the sign of emotional depth. The watery Great Mother and feminine power. Like the creature which represents Cancer, the Crab, the energy sinks deep within and makes us aware of our emotional needs and can sometimes bring to the surface issues concerning our security and relationships with those we love.
Some home truths could be revealed to you around the 16th of July, and I would urge you all to trust your instincts – remember that if you follow your gut you will never go wrong and your intuition will be at its height during this powerful period.
This could also be a time to heal old wounds – cancer tends to bring things up to the surface – so you may need to take time out to reflect on issues which you may have kept buried for a long time. Be kind to yourself and treat yourself with the love and compassion you would give to others in a similar situation. You have the opportunity to release and heal something which has held you back for a long time – how wonderful is that?
This new moon is a good time to embrace your dark side – we are all a mixture of light and dark, and as spiritual people we often forget this. We are, above all else, human, and we live in a universe of duality. Don’t suppress your darker side. Feel it and acknowledge it. Learn to love yourself as a whole being. The new moon in cancer will support you on this journey.
The tides are changing and you may be required to make some very quick changes in this period – don’t hold on to the past, but simply go with the flow. Learn the art of living in the now and learn how to release your expectations and fears. There are times when we are not in control and we have to learn to handle those times. The best way is to simply ride the wave. Say yes to everything – new opportunities will present themselves at a rate of knots, but if you try to cling on to the old and familiar ways, you will miss them.
Most of all, remain positive and upbeat. Don’t allow any negative thoughts to enter your energy at this time, as manifestation powers will be high. Learn to send out positive vibes and the universe will return them to you, ten-fold !
