New Moon in Cancer

“ A new moon teaches gradualness and deliberation and how one gives birth to oneself slowly. Patience with small details makes perfect a large work, like the universe.”
― Rumi

This New Moon is a powerhouse of a New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer. The is the first of three consecutive New and Full Moon eclipses. A prolonged window of awakening to deeper potentiality and the calling to a higher creativity. In a solar eclipse, the Moon’s orbit passes between the Earth and the Sun, hiding the Sun from our view. In the inner reality its where the hidden ‘inner worlds’ are revealed.

Summer Solstice transmits the light of illumination, the purity and beauty of the Great Goddess, the Divine Feminine reveals Herself in manifestation, you get to touch and be touched by Her grace. Now in this potent portal we are called deeper into Her body of awakening and the illumination of the dark feminine. She only appears dark to our current consciousness as She is the hidden, the unseen, the unconscious activities and motivations that are lived from in your day to day life. This New moon Solar Eclipse calls the lost, the forgotten, the buried up to the surface revealing unexpressed emotions calling to be met and felt.

This is a call deeper into Belonging. Deeper into the mystery of the Feminine. To allow intensity without trying to avoid it, cover it up or numb it down in someway. To allow a deeper vulnerability to unravel the sense of separation and open to an inter-connectedness, dependancy and intimacy on the pulse of life and with those around you.

To Surender to the Unknown for the New to take shape in your life. Its asking for a real depth of Trust in the divine intelligence.

The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself.”

- Anais Nin



  • Take a little time to reflect the night before the new moon. Get in touch with the ‘feeling’ qualities of learnings that you have bought to conscious awareness since the last full moon. Write them down in your Journal or on an A4 sheet to keep with your New Moon Worksheet.

  • Download and print off your worksheet ready for the day of the New Moon. If you can work with the most powerful window of the New Moon that is within 8 hours of the exact time of the New Moon on Tuesday 2nd July at 8.16PM GMT



The New Moon has a more inward feel - it is a void of potentiality with the quality of emptiness. Nothing has certainty, all is opened to the influx of possibility yet to be made manifest.

It is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the lunar month cycle. In this dark fertile ground, you can plant the seeds of your deepest heartfelt desires, consciously focusing your Whole Being of mind-body-spirit on the ‘feeling’ qualities of your rising desires.

Its a time to call on depths of healing, to open to a fresh start, a new phase and a time to celebrate new beginnings. You can reflect on the learnings in decisions, experiences and rejuvenate yourself in a fresh clean flow of energy. The new moons purifying energy aids reflection and re-orientation to your highest aspirations and your deepest core values. Its your symbolic ‘second chance’ that is given over and over again as an impulse of higher creativity.


New Moons are the beginning of the 29 day lunar month. During a New Moon, the moon is sitting directly between the Earth and the Sun.  Because the side of the moon that is illuminated is facing away from you, the moon is not visible at all to you. The Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon which you never see and this allows you to access deeper levels in the unconscious.

Both the Moon and the Sun are in the same Zodiac sign during a New Moon… giving an expanded boost or concentration of the energy.

The SUN representing your ‘outer-world’, your identify, personality, your sense of self.  It represents how you ‘shine your light’ out into the world. The present moment, your yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers you strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul. 

The MOON represents your ‘inner world’, your hidden emotions, desires, the shadow-self, fears/worries and your dreams.  It represents your feelings, unconscious beliefs, the past and your yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers you the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express your essence.
