Last Friday night, June 23, was a New Moon in the zodiac sign of Cancer. The energy of a New Moon lasts for many days after its occurrence.
The New Moon signifies new beginnings, and a chance to shed old skins to make room for fresh possibilities. It is the ideal time to set genuine intentions. Some examples of positive affirmations and intentions are:
I intend to see beauty in everything, everywhere I go and in whomever I’m with.
I intend to live in the now and feel greater and greater depths of love, fun, joy, happiness, ecstasy, compassion, and caring for myself and others.
I intend to feel that I’m always in the right place at the right time for all of my intentions to come true.
The zodiac sign, Cancer, is one of the three water signs and ruled by the Moon, so it is inherently emotion filled with an understood femininity that comes from it’s ruler. Cancers are the nurturers. They crave vulnerability, emotional bonding and security. I tend to view Cancer as the mother of the zodiac, and with that comes a feeling of warmth that is hard to see from some of the other signs.
The fact that this New Moon was in Cancer, makes it one that brings up emotions that are deep-rooted and could have been previously ignored. It forces us to be intuitively aware of our true feelings towards the situations or relationships that we inhabit and whether or not we need to remove ourselves from them. It is a powerful and emotional time, but one that brings the energy that we need to perform such a task as letting go and starting anew! Like never before, this phase allows us to sense clearly what was holding us back from ascending to our fullest potential.
Although it can be an emotional season, just know that there is so much strength in your vulnerability. This is the best time of the year to change any aspect of your life that you have believed to be stagnant or lacking progress. It is a transformative time. Allow this Earth to see you truly bloom into all that you were meant to be.
