Moon Dark-New in Cancer09 Jul 2021, by moon&sky in
… home-in. feel, flow, nourish, rebirth…
As always, Moon Dark initiates a new cycle and offers us to the opportunity to start fresh with new perspective. It’s a time to end, close and release old tracks; and time to open to new ways of seeing and being (Moon dark+Moon-Uranus). A time for re-visioning, for setting new intentions, and for new adventures.
The start of this cycle with a new Moon in Cancer is particularly welcome after the challenging, rock and roll-er coastery turbulence of eclipse energies (recall last new Moon included a solar eclipse) and various other Earth-Sky alignments (Mars-Saturn-Uranus TSQ in particular). Yes, there’s still some residual effects (eg Uranus still at Apex of TSQ) but things are shifting, fading, resolving, easing. More and more as Moon’s light gains, energies soften, there’s greater clarity, and we feel stronger, more supported, and more confident (Moon/Sun & outer planets).
There’s magic in this Moon (Cancer is Moon’s ruler + boosts Cancer Sun season energy (along w/ Merc>Cancer Sunday) + influence of outer planets + cycle includes Mayan Day Out of Time). In Cancer we enter the realm of feeling and are welcomed into nourishing sanctuary. Cancer Moon calls us home, to the loving embrace of all we are, and into a deepening of Cancer’s wisdom-gifts of caring, nurture, comfort, compassion, empathy, self-trust and self-love. Sensitivity, creativity and potential for spiritual growth increases (Moon-Neptune). Things are falling into place and there’s a greater sense of unity and ‘rightness’ within (heightened by Moon conj Mars & Venus Monday & rare Mars-Venus conj Tues). It’s a time for transformative new beginnings.
In Cancer season and under this Cancer Moon, the focus is on radical, unwavering self-care, not just to survive but to thrive. Time to deeply feel at home within. Time to love ourselves as we are and, at the same time, take first steps to becoming more than we have been (following from eclipse call). Time to feel, laugh and play (further encouraged by Moon>Leo ‘morrow); and time to let the inner Waters flow. Time to find new ways to anchor all that delights, nourishes and nurtures us and all we love; and time to plant new seeds in that service.
Come home to the wholeness of your inner heart
the radiant you and your Spirit-honed arts
Stretch into the ancestral wisdom that within resides
Open to all the treasures and enjoy new found surprise
Time to choose what you will next seed
and new ways to nurture and feed
Align with all you appreciate
Plant the vision you wish to create
Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light
Wishing you the flow of nourishing Waters;
a fullness of home in your heart; and
the delight of magickal new possibilities this Moon
