The Cancer New Moon on June 28 softens our defenses and heightens our emotions, leaving us feeling a little raw. We don’t live in a society that supports being in this state, so while it can be challenging, try to focus on the many gifts that come when we let down our defenses and allow ourselves to truly feel.
Feeling is part of what we are here for. It is so connected to our experience as humans. What do you need to give yourself permission to feel?
The Cancer New Moon will be our guide and can help us confront some of our deeper feelings so we can acknowledge them, be with them, understand them, and even overcome them.
While your June New Moon journey will be unique to you, this ritual is designed to bring self-love and nourishment into your being. It is my hope that this ritual will help to support and lift you, no matter what you are moving through.
Cancer New Moon Ritual for Self-Love and Nourishment
This ritual is best done anytime between July 23-30
You will need:
- Energy Cleansing tool of choice (dried herbs, incense, bells, etc.)
- Heart Drumming Meditation
- Pen and Paper
1.) Start by cleansing your aura and then your surroundings. As you cleanse your aura, feel free to recite the following-
“From the top of my head to the tips of my toes, I restore and recharge the energy field of my body. My aura is strengthened and restored. It shines like the rays of a million suns. I radiate peace from inside my bones. Kindness shines through my smile and my eyes, and I am lifted and held by my inner divine. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
As you cleanse your surroundings, recite the following-
“From corner to corner this room is cleansed of any and all energies that are no longer in accordance with my highest good. This space is now filled with love, peace, joy, healing, and abundance. May this space be forever protected and may all those who enter this space be blessed, myself included. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
2.) Start your ritual with the Heart Drumming meditation. This is going to help strengthen your energy field and boost your vibration. It will also help you connect with your body and soul.
3.) After your meditation, gaze at your reflection in the mirror. Look into your eyes. Really stare into your soul. See what comes up for you as you do this.
4.) After a few minutes, say something loving to yourself, just say what you feel in the moment. Be kind and supportive with your words. Give yourself a little pep talk. Honor and recognize any pain you are feeling. Make sure your inner self feels heard.
5.) Sit with whatever emotions come up for you as you do this. When ready, stretch your arms and wrap them around yourself like you are giving yourself a hug. Hold yourself for a moment.
When ready, recite the following or feel free to say what you want in the moment-
“You are a loving, radiant, magnificent being. I know you have been through so much, and seen so much. I know you have so many obstacles you still feel you need to overcome. But you are doing just great. As my arms wrap around you, I am taking away your pain and your struggles. We are in this together, and I am here for you. I see you, I hear you, and I love you. We may not always show that to one another, but I am you, you are me, and we are in this as One. I will always be here for you. I will always be here to hold you no matter what. I don’t care if you get it wrong or right, I just trust and believe in you, and know that you will always get to where you need to be.”
6.) Now, take your pen and paper and write down 10 things you can do to be more loving and supportive towards yourself or what you can do to nourish and feed your mind, body, and soul. Place your list somewhere you can look at frequently throughout the lunar month.
New Moon Blessings to you!
