Firstly, apologies to have skipped the Sagittarius full moon on the 14th of June. I've had loads going on and ended up not managing to publish the blog in time. You might have felt a sense of renewed optimism over the last couple of weeks, and big changes brought about by that Sag full moon. Hopefully it brought clarity, tied up some loose ends, and brought new perspectives and adventure into your life!
We moved into the nurturing energy of Cancer last week, so it's now time to honour our emotions and tune into our intuition.
Cancer is the compassionate cardinal water sign that rules the 4th house of home and family. Expect some big feelings over this new moon, and the need to nest at home and get comfy!
Cancer is sensitive, loving and emotional. One of the most empathetic signs of the zodiac, cancer is highly intuitive, especially when it comes to what others are thinking and feeling. This emotional intelligence and understanding can make cancers want to climb into every corner of your soul, which for some people can feel intense and clingy. For some it's sensed as its (usually) meant - as a display of fierce caring and loyalty. Cancers are usually highly creative, with bold imaginations and the ability to lead others in the pursuit of creative ideas and projects.
Cancer is ruled by the moon, which governs our feelings, and the deep subconscious parts of ourselves that make up our soul. We connect to our spirituality and our instincts through the moon, getting in touch with our emotions and our intuition. Anything cyclitic is also connected to the moon, it governs our feminine side, cycles and phases.
A new moon in Cancer is a good time to manifest from your heart - think about what is emotionally important to you. Focus on what makes you feel secure, comfortable and safe. It is a good time to plant seeds of manifestation surrounding home life and important relationships, perhaps also to refresh your home. Take time to connect to who (and what) you love.
The following journal prompts are designed to help you tap into this Cancer energy, dive deep into yourself, and make your new moon intention setting really powerful:
1. What changes could I make in my home space to make it a more nurturing and comfortable environment for me? (and my family?)
2. Am I allowing myself to express and honour all of my emotions? To let them flow, not getting hung up on them?
3. How can I create a safe space to do this, and allow myself to evolve?
4. Are there any relationships I'd like to give more (or less!) time to? Am I spending my time with my favourite people? Do I need / want to change how I spend any of my time to honour these relationships?
5. How do I honour my feminine side? Do I need to allow more space for this part of me?
Each new and full moon I host an online group chat where we work through the journal prompts together, share insights, and hold space for each other. To get the most out of the session you can work through the prompts before hand, but its not necessary - if you'd like to join in anyway and work through them during then please do!
If you'd like to get involved then please subscribe to my mailing list at the bottom of this page, where every other week I will share the info and zoom link to join the sessions.
Happy New Moon!
