The New Moon in Cancer arrives this June 28 and just in time, overflowing with the energy of the archetypal Mother and invites us into deep self-care and safety. 

The moon is at home in this water sign symbolized by the crab. The crab is tough on the outside and soft on the inside, reminding us that our tender hearts and homes do need boundaries and protection. As we nurture this sense of safety, the permission to feel deeply is extended, and the message is to cleanse ourselves by surrendering to the flow.

On June 24th, SCOTUS overturned Roe v Wade, ending 50 years of federal abortion rights, a huge blow to our human rights that will affect communities that are already marginalized. As we as a nation and world watch how our society is dividing even further, the question of community is brought forth. 

How do we honor and protect birthing persons and unborn and new life in our communities?

Amid this life-changing decision, this New Moon asks us to manage our nervous systems and explore how to tend to ourselves and our community. 

How can I fill my cup first so I can pour it into my community?

The New Moon is always a potent portal to release what no longer serves and draw and magnetize your heart’s desire. Representing a new cycle, expect fresh energy and the ability to reimagine and recreate!

In order to seed the new, we must first release our tight grasp of what we thought would be and begin to ask what is possible.

Our intuition and ancestral gifts are flowing now, so take the time to journal, breathe and flow with your intuitive knowing!

This is generally a loving, supportive moon but with Black Moon Lilith representing the energy of the Wild Woman (dark, raw, fierce, often shunned by society), expect fierce intuition and perhaps a little sacred rage as Jupiter squares Aries! 

Black Lilith represents empowerment, expansion, and sexuality. Most often, when we silence emotions that were deemed negative, our spectrum of feelings gets limited, including joy and pleasure. So this moon is not one to hold back!

Gather with trusted friends, dance, sing, shout out your fears and sadness and light a candle while breathing in expansion, unity, harmony, and a new way of doing things both for the collective and personally. 

Please make sure to read your sun, moon, and rising signs, and you can find out what they are here.
