New Moon Wishes - Cancer

The New Moon is the time to set your intentions for the month ahead. By getting clear on what you want, you will effectively be sending out arrows of desire that cannot help but start to manifest. For detailed tips on New Moon wishing you can read more by clicking on this link. Remember the best time for your wish is within 8 hours afterwards the lunation, but anything within 48 hours is still charged with the New Moon energy.

Cancer is all about our family, our home, our environment. It's time for quality family time, making your home the most nourishing it can be. It's time to declutter, clean and decorate. Fun times!

Ask yourself the question: 'What does home and family mean to me?'

Pay attention not only to your head and gut, but to your heart as well when you answer this question. What makes you feel safe and secure? This is the perfect time to explore and develop a sense of inner security.

The NEW MOON is about new beginnings - set out your intention to connect to your true self. If you look at the Zodiac wheel, we are looking at 12 areas of our lives. The full moon / new moon that triggers us, is generally the area where we either have some healing to do, or in the case of the new moon, some manifesting to do.

What are you planning on putting into motion for this NEW MOON?

These areas are connected to the New Moon in Cancer energy, and any wish connected to them will be extra supported:

  • enhance family life and family-related activities

  • heighten your awareness of your roots, issues of intimacy and vulnerability

  • come in touch and honor your innermost feelings and needs

  • make long-range plans for the future

  • do any type of re-organizing or even re-modeling of the home or home environment

  • build up your feelings of security and safety

  • get in touch with your vulnerability and dependency on others

  • learn to feed your soul

  • balance between home life and professional life

  • all of that which we call “home”, including the foundation we have built inside of ourselves,

  • pay attention to your instincts, your deepest needs, and your feelings

  • recognize the importance of your family and your personal circle of friends and the security, sense of belonging, and safety you receive from them

  • get in touch with your vulnerability and your needs for intimacy, as well as opening yourself up to accepting support from others

  • offer and show support for others, without a hidden agenda

  • begin a new project that involves improving the home itself, or improving domestic life in general

  • property, immovable possessions

  • ​your mother or the parent with the most influence on you

  • Cancer is the ruler of the fourth house which governs land, houses, agriculture, farming, crops, mines, minerals, coal pits, quarries, the weather, the opposition party in government

Yasmin Boland (Moonology) suggests the following action plans for the Cancer New Moon:

1. Family time

Check in with your mum and dad. The Cancerian energy is all about home and family, and nothing matters more to Cancerians. If you haven’t spent enough time with your nearest and dearest lately, get in touch with them (if you don’t have family nearby, or at all, people who feel like family also count). In particular, if there’s tension between you and your family, use this New Moon to resolve to sort that out. Life is too short!

2. Banish insecurity

Be honest with yourself about whether you’re coming from a place of insecurity, fear or possessiveness – anywhere (or everywhere) in your life. Consider the symbol of the sign of Cancer – the crab. It’s a little creature with a very hard shell that protects a soft and vulnerable inside. That’s the Cancerian vibe, and we all have it – we’re all self-protective. This month, ask yourself if you’re being too hard because you’re worried. Identify and drop a few barriers. You will feel better for it. Also, check that you’re not being too moody. Meditation will help with this.

◗ 3. Nurture

Get in touch with your caring and nurturing side. Cancerian energy is very warm and cosy: think of a lovely white-haired grandma with big boobs who holds you close when you’re upset, and whose cups of tea or hot chocolate make you feel so much better. There’s more to the Cancerian energy than that, but it’s a big part of it. Make a promise to look after yourself this month. And look after others too, especially kids.

◗ 4. Review your goals

Cancer is also one of the most dynamic and tenacious signs. Perhaps all that caring and nurturing leaves people more able to go out into the world and achieve. So this month, go back to your goals for the year. The Cancer New Moon happens about midway through the year, so think about where you are with what you were aiming for at the start of the year, and think about what needs tweaking now, to stay on course (or to get back on course).

◗ 5. Bathe

One of the best things to do on a Cancerian New Moon is to have a lovely warm or hot bath, preferably by non-toxic candlelight. (If you don’t yet know about the health risks posed by many indoor candles, Google it!) It’s said that being in a warm bath recreates the conditions in the womb – no wonder it’s so appealing to so many. Personally, I have some of my best ideas in the bath. Cancer is a Water sign, so doing anything connected with water now is good. If you’re lucky enough to live near a pool, river, creek, ocean or sea, jump on in. Unwind with a watery theme. Brilliance often follows unwinding.

Enjoy your manifesting with the moon
