Cancer New Moon Ritual July 2023

The Cancer New Moon arrives on the highly auspicious day of July 17, 2023. On this day, the Lunar Nodes also shift signs for the first time in almost two years, signifying both the start and end of a karmic cycle.

With karmic energy strong under this New Moon, we may find ourselves pushed and pulled in new directions. New opportunities may present themselves, or we may discover inner shifts and changes that begin guiding us in a new way.

You can read more about the July 2023 Cancer New Moon here, but if you want to work deeper with the energies, here is a ritual to guide you. This ritual is designed to bring nourishment to your mind, body, and soul, while also strengthening and repairing your connection with the Divine Mother within. I hope you enjoy it!

Cancer New Moon Divine Mother Ritual

This ritual is best done between July 13-23, 2023

You will need:


1.) Start with your Cosmic Healing Meditation. This meditation is designed to bring subtle healing frequencies to the body using certain hand positions. It is easy and relaxing to follow along with, and will help to prep you for the rest of this ritual.

2.) After your meditation, get your paper and colored pencils/markers and think of someone close to you that you love deeply- they do not have to be living. If you really want to dive deep into some healing work, pick your mother (even if you have a strained relationship), as under the Cancer New Moon, working with your mother or the “mother wound” will help to mend your connection with feminine energy, help attract higher love, facilitate heart healing, and restore your connection with self-nourishment.

3.) Close your eyes and bring your mother or the person you have chosen into your awareness. Meditate for a moment, imagining you are sending deep love, comfort, forgiveness, and strength to this person. Do this for 10-15 minutes.

4.) Then open your eyes, and begin drawing a symbol that represents the bond and connection you have with this person. If you are working with a strained relationship, draw the symbol based on your ideal scenario. Infuse the symbol with all of your energy, thoughts, and feelings. Make it as simple or as elaborate as you like.

5.) Once your symbol is complete, meditate upon it for a moment. Sit with any thoughts, feelings, or emotions that have been stirred. Place your symbol by your bed, and every night for the next 3 nights, meditate upon your symbol for just a few minutes – the longer the better.

6.) For the final step, and to close this ritual, take your glass of water and hold it in both hands. Recite the following mantra 4 times –

“I am connected to the Divine Mother. I am supported by the Divine Mother. I am healed by the Divine Mother. I am at peace with all that I am. I am One with the Love that grows inside my heart. My Spirit and Soul are active, and always guiding me to the highest light.”

Drink the full glass of water.

Your ritual is now complete. New Moon Blessings to you!
