The watery depths, the sacred solitude. Cancer is representative of the abyss of our connection to home, our sanctuary that inspires our sense of self peace and adornment of such spaces.

It’s who we are in our truth, when we are alone–the foundation of which we launch upon the world. And for this reason alone it is crucial to master because it has the power of influence over all aspects of our lives.

The moon also represents the mother, earth mother, our incarnate mother and the mother we are, if we have embarked on that journey. It is a time to instill harmony and question where we currently exist in relation to all of those aspects. Are you connecting to the earth? Are you processing healing with your own mother and which parts of you wish to enhance your own mothering?

The New Moon in Cancer unfolds a time of introspection, to cocoon and beautify our homes whether it be with fresh flowers or a sage smudging to cleanse the vibrations around you. A kind of nesting spent in thought and active ceremony to reactivate and ignite the dreams we wish to manifest.

Light a candle, take a lavender bath with soothing tunes to carry your imagination to a higher frequency. Hold in your mind’s eye the vision of your own sacred time in utero, become one with your inner child so that you can elicit the response you desire to become a more patient, present mother. Call your mother, send her a letter, sit on the earth and feel all that you do while witnessing your own experience and having loving compassion with yourself.

So be it, so be it, so be it.

Drawing down the moon…

Imagine above you the round glowing disc of the moon, bathing you in a protective circle of light. Vibrant with energy, your space is transformed, filled with the purity of spirit. Stand and raise your arms above your head. Let your palms face each other and curve slightly toward the moon. Feel as though you’re a sacred chalice, drawing the power of the Great Mother into every cell of your being—from your toes, to your womb, to your breasts, to your jaw, and your eyes. Feel the pleasure of this energy. It is vibrant with the power to give, to receive, to nurture life, and manifest what is possible.

Sending your blessings…

Draw your hands to your heart. Massage this area. Feel that you have become the goddess, capable of balancing the earth and harmonizing its opposing forces. In particular you are tuned to the forces of Sagittarius and Gemini, signs devoted to knowledge, truth, understanding, and communication. Out of balance, they bring righteousness, gossip, judgment, confusion, and lies. This negativity circles the globe like a dark smoke. Know that if you breathe in this smoke you have the power to transform it in your heart and breathe it out as the pure white light of the goddess. Read the affirmations and visualize the world’s darkness dissolving with your breath. Find a comfortable rhythm and repeat the statements until your light has transformed the world.

Breathing in…
gossip and lies

Breathing in…righteous judgement.

Breathing out…

Grounding the energy….

See the world bathed in the purifying light of your offering: the sleeping babies, the politicians arguing, the starving children, liars and thieves. See the world transforming with this light, growing peaceful and calm. When you are ready, bring your hands to your sides, palms facing the earth. Send your divine light deep into the earth. See this energy take shape as a round moon, gathering below you in the center of the earth. Feel yourself slowly coming back into your body. Rest in this peace until you are ready to return to your life. Blessed
