New Moon In Cancer

What is a New Moon?

A New Moon occurs when the moon lies between the Earth and the Sun in such a way that the illuminated side is facing away from our view on Earth. At this point, the moon appears to be only a sliver in the sky, or vanishes entirely. 

Magically speaking, a New Moon is the first of 8 phases. It signifies new beginnings and the opportunity to manifest new things. If you want to begin new habits, make new goals, or attract abundance into your life, then this is the moon you want to work with!

 Every 2.5 days, the moon travels through a different zodiac sign. It takes approximately 29.5 days for the moon to make a complete rotation through all the zodiac signs. Whenever the moon is in a particular sign, the qualities of that sign are highlighted. 

What does a New Moon in Cancer mean?

Cancer is the 4th sign of the zodiac and corresponds to the element of water. Although they have a hard shell, Cancers are tenderhearted people who crave domesticity, and harmony. They can be slow to trust, but very loyal when you win them over. Ruled by the moon, they're sensitive, nurturing, moody, and reclusive. Cancer rules the 4th house of the zodiac which deals with home, family, mothers, real estate, childhood, or your ancestral home.

This month's New Moon will be on July 9th at 9:17pm EST. You may notice issues around home, family, and real estate are brought to the surface this week. This can be an opportunity to heal old family wounds as well as manifest a new living situation for yourself. However, you can use the magic of a New Moon to help you manifest anything your heart desires. 

If you'd like to use this New Moon in Cancer energy to help you manifest new goals, dreams, or abundance, then you can do your rituals anytime between July 8th-10th. The magic of the New Moon will last approximately 72 hours. Here's a ritual I like to do on New Moons to call in abundance and make my wishes come true. 

Bay Leaf Wishing Ritual

*Black or white candle

*Bay leaves: These can be found in the spice section of your local grocery store. 

*Heat resistant bowl or dish

*Marker, pen, or pencil

Light your candle and think about what you'd like to manifest. Take a dried bay leaf and write your wish on it. Use your candle to set the leaf aflame. Drop the leave into your bowl until it burns completely.***Caution, bay leaves can burn really quickly! Don't burn yourself! While the candle burns, you can also journal about your goals, dreams, or insights. 

Happy witching my friends!
