Greetings, Goddess!

This weekend we are basking in the energy of a beautiful New Moon! This took place on Friday, July 5th at 3:57 PM PT (6:57 PM ET) in 14 degrees of Cancer.

The Moon is the ruler of Cancer, and is also the archetype of the mother in astrology. Cancer’s themes revolve around our home and family, the way we receive nurturing and the way we nurture others, self care and our emotions.

Cancer is also a very nostalgic and sentimental sign, so you may find yourself reminiscing about “the good old days” or a past relationship that you have intense memories of. It helps to remember that New Moons are always about moving FORWARD, so it’s good to be aware of where you have been feeling mired in the energy of the past.

Pluto, Saturn and Neptune are currently in retrograde, so we may be feeling some conflicting energy between the push to move forward and the desire to take time to slow down, rest and focus on our inner world. Be sure to allow plenty of time for yourself to rest and replenish as needed.

Chiron is preparing to retrograde in Aries on July 26th, assisting us in rediscovering our authentic selves and asking us to look at what needs to be healed within the self to allow this to occur.

Mercury will be in retrograde motion starting on August 4th, so the month of July is a great time to focus on moving forward with your dreams and plans, getting into alignment with what you truly wish to create and committing to the goals you have for the remainder of 2024.

New Moons are a time to set your intentions and plant the seeds for your highest desires to manifest later on in the moon cycle. The best time to set intentions is within 48 hours after the New Moon becomes exact. Avoid setting intentions when the Moon is Void of Course.

Questions to reflect or journal upon:

🌛 What is ONE small thing I can do to consistently nurture myself each day?
🌛 How am I choosing to reevaluate my life and rediscover my power at this time?
🌛 In which area of my life do I most need to focus on making changes now?
