The July New Moon falls on the 4th in the watery sign of Cancer. This is a very soothing and nurturing sign for the New Moon, and it is likely to stir feelings of calmness and peace.
The Moon feels at home in the sign of Cancer and will bring about a welcome flow of energy that will encourage all of us to be gentle and loving towards ourselves.
The recent harsh energy that has been circulating in the cosmos will get washed away with the soothing, gentle tones of this New Moon and emotional clarity may even present itself.
The New Moon in Cancer is a highly emotional placement and deep wounds from within may surface. There is no digging or analysis that is needed at this time however. Instead, just allow the emotions to rise as they may and focus on just loving and accepting yourself.
There has been a lot of healing energy stirring in recent months with the retrograding planets and confronting Moon cycles, but now it is time to simply accept wherever you are and love yourself.
It is time to move out of healing and into loving. If you allow Mother Moon in, she will gently wash you and cleanse you with very little effort. All you have to do is surrender, accept and love.
During the week of the New Moon, it is also very important to listen and trust your intuition, especially when it comes to making any decisions. This is a time to tune into that inner voice and the messages of your heart, and trust in any wisdom you receive.
July’s New Moon will also be calling on us to see the truth and trust the truth that is expressed through our intuition. If something feels off to you, pay attention but also remember that no harsh action is required during this time.
New Moon’s represent the start of a new cycle and this cycle is definitely going to be a lot quieter and more peaceful than we have been experiencing.
July is truly going to be a month of restoration, peace and relaxation. Under the darkness of the New Moon, it is also going to be the perfect time to set your intentions for the road ahead.
Give yourself permission to let go of all that is no longer serving you and get clear about what it is that you want to manifest for the road ahead.
This New Moon is also activating the Saturn-Neptune square, which is one of the most significant aspects for the year.
This aspect has been helping us to not only trust our intuition, but also see the truth in the people and situations around us. In many ways, this aspect has been helping us to remove the veil or the rose coloured glasses and really see things as they are.
This aspect has perhaps also caused a fogginess or a certain level of confusion. Perhaps there have been no facts revealed or intuitive insights felt, leaving just darkness surrounding a certain situation.
If any of this resonates, this New Moon is going to help bring some illumination to the path ahead. It is going to help highlight or reveal things to you in order to give you just a taste of what is to come.
The Saturn-Neptune square will be lingering till September, but during July and under the influence of the Cancer New Moon, you may just receive a glimmer as to the final lesson in store.
It is important to remember however, that this New Moon is really about being gentle with yourself, loving yourself and nourishing yourself in love.
Take some time out just for yourself this weekend to nourish and replenish your energy. Cleanse your aura, relax in a warm bath, just do whatever you need to get back to you.
Along with the beautiful intuitive New Moon, we also have the meeting of Sun and Sirius around the same time. You can read more about that here.
Together these two aspects are going to make the first few weeks of July a highly spiritual and intuitive time, perfect for manifestation rituals and raising your vibration.
