This Cancer New Moon July 15 calls you to SAY WHAT YOU NEED TO SAY!
Give Voice To–& Express–The Nurturer Within!
There is no one stronger than a mother.
Yup, let me say that again, this time with the proper emphasis: “There is no one stronger than a mother!”
Sure, some of you will immediately wholeheartedly agree.
But what about those of you who experience(d) the “mother” archetype tied to energies other than sensitive, caring, nurturing, and intuitive? What about those who didn’t (don’t) find comfort in their mother’s arms in times of stress?
New Moons are always about planting a seed that eventually leads to a new birth. Full Moons are about release and the birthing process. We get the opportunity to plant new seeds of self-love every New Moon and to give birth to this self-nurturing energy every Full Moon…
This particular New Moon in Cancer resonates with the Sun & Mercury–already in this sign of the nurturing, sensitive, compassionate, intuitive mother archetype.
It provides us with the energy to plant the seed that will ultimately allow us to give birth to our own private mother…not a literal flesh and blood nurturer, but rather the nurturer inside…
The dark of this Cancer New Moon (New Moons are when the Sun & the Moon come together in the sky and light is obscured) gives us the opportunity to proactively plant that new seed so that it has its greatest opportunity to take root and grow.
What are our innermost thoughts and emotions? What is it we need to unburden ourselves of? Where do we need to turn our intuition into the action of putting pen to page, fingers to keyboard, brush to canvas, feet into dance shoes?
Eventually, this seed will lead to the birth–not only of what we really want to say, but what we need to express!
However, to do so, we are tasked with gathering together our most important thoughts, the ones closest to our true emotional message…
These thoughts may not make entire sense, may not gel coherently–yet–but no matter, one has to start somewhere!
The July 1 Capricorn Full Moon attempted to shed its light on where you may be too soft and overly sensitive, or where you may be too harsh in terms of playing your own best authoritarian parent.
The call at that time was to release what does not serve you, and to more successfully integrate these energies into your psyche and your life.
As this Cancer New Moon calls us to communicate that which we feel and intuit, it may be best not to keep it all inside, tightly controlled, and in lock down mode–but rather, as John Meyer reminds us in his song “Say What You Need To Say”:
“Walkin’ like a one man army
Fightin’ with the shadows in your head
Livin’ out the same old moment
Knowin’ you’d be better off instead
If you could only say what you need to say
Have no fear for givin’ in
Have no fear for givin’over
You better know that in the end
It’s better to say too much
Than never to say what you need to say again…”
If you keep it inside forever–in the hope of never having to be judged, or denounced as a fraud, fake, imposter or, worse yet, a plagiarist!–how will others know how you truly feel?
Cancer is the sign of the mother, but a mother cannot gestate her unborn forever–at some point she must give birth or both she and her offspring will die…
Use the energy of this Cancer New Moon to plant that new seed and commit to not only writing, singing, dancing, playing what you feel, but to expressing what you need to say…
Trust me, you’ll feel a whole lot lighter when you do…
