New Moon in Cancer
by Simona Schimanovich
Moving into the second half of 2020 and emerging from Eclipse Season, we will experience the second New Moon in Cancer on July 20th. After the powerful Solar Eclipse last month at the very beginning of 0 degrees of Cancer, the July New Moon falls into the sign of Cancer again. This is unusual and highlights the importance of cultivating this energy.
The cardinal water sign of Cancer is all about our emotions. It is caring, sensitive, and asks us to feel our feelings fully. Cancer energy represents the Divine Feminine and the archetype of the Mother.
With all the big inner and outer changes we are experiencing, we are invited to nurture and nourish ourselves with unconditional love. It is a time of surrendering and opening up to receive.
The astrology is pointing to a very dynamic second half of 2020. Mars in Aries for the rest of the year will energise us, but can also stimulate feelings of restlessness, impulsivity, and aggression. It is also triggering some of the major alignments happening this year – Saturn, Pluto, and Jupiter in Capricorn, all of which continue the process of dissolving old structures and institutions of power.
Instead of getting carried away and reacting to outer changes or events, it will be important to stay firmly grounded within ourselves. This is the only thing we can control in the end – ourselves.
Can we dedicate ourselves to staying rooted in a positive mindset and lifting our vibrations, no matter what? Can we still show up as the person we want to be…. even when the pressure is on? This is what we practice on the mat. Can we still breathe, remain calm, and compassionate with ourselves when we are in a deep twist?
We are moving through a time that is bringing great Awakening for more and more people.
Set an intention under this New Moon in Cancer – to care for your feelings, uplift, and nourish yourself. Set an intention to share unconditional love – with yourself, humanity, and our entire planet.
