The Magic Of The 2019 Cancer New Moon
As the Cancer New Moon approaches, it’s time for a new beginning. A new cycle, a new goal, a new hope – new magic. It’s the perfect time to turn your life around! But what is so special about the Cancer New Moon?
Just as farmers used the phases of the moon to guide their farm chores, Astrologers believe this is an optimum time to do the same for your goals. Ancient farmers believed that when they followed the cycles of the moon, they would produce the best crops, so they planted during a New Moon. This is because the moon governs moisture (including tides) on earth and during a New Moon, the ground becomes wet and fertile.
It is the optimum time to plant ensuring their seeds had moisture and support it needed. Astrologers today still utilize this same thought process, except it is applied life. A new moon in Astrology is the time for planting seeds for the future (otherwise known as intentions). The moments and days following the New Moon are regarded as the optimum time period for sharing any desires, needs or changes you want to unfold in your life with the universe.
It is also common that new people, events or opportunities will arise around this time for you. This is why it is especially important that you must not only hold an image or vision of what you want to manifest in your life, you must also make it known, holding steadfast to the knowing it will come. The energy of the New Moon will nourish this goal of yours.
The 2019 Cancer New Moon
Uncertainty can run high on a Cancer New Moon. This sensitive, safety-loving sign is reluctant to new beginnings because it knows how emotionally taxing they can be. It helps to be in a safe space at this time- at home, with family or in your own private world.
From this space, a new start can find its way: a house renovation, a change of place, deeper forgiveness and intimacy with relatives and loved ones, a stronger connection to our inner child and to our nurturing abilities. The more you can connect to your emotions and intuition at this time (maybe even during a ritual bath), the more powerful your New Moon intention will be!
Cancer New Moon Ritual
To use the full power of the Cancer New Moon, we are sharing one of our most magical new moon rituals for intention setting ever! Here is how it goes:
Before you start the ritual, make sure that you are starting on a clean slate. We like to do little cleansing with Sage Smudge Sticks because sage helps not only in purifying the space but also the air, body, and mind of negative vibes.
Light your Sage Smudge Stick, but make sure you have something to put it in, like an Abalone Shell, because Sage can get really hot, really fast and burn you. Breathe in the purifying smoke of sage, and breathe out.
Bring the smoke over the items for the ritual, then into every corner of the room in which you will be performing the ritual, in all the other rooms, and in the end, envelop yourself with smoke by using circular motions with your hands. Breathe in and breathe out. Then, open your windows to let out all the pesky negative vibes out, away from you and your home.
Once the majority of the smoke is out, lay down in a comfortable position. Calm yourself down. Breathe in breathe out. Relax your body and feel yourself getting calmer and calmer.
Place a Black Obsidian Reiki Generator on your chest, and place your Palm Stone Clear Quartz near your head. Breathe in and breathe out. Feel the energy of the Black Obsidian Reiki Generator, envelop you, protecting you and grounding you, while making the life force within you radiate, stronger than ever. Feel the calmness, and clarity your Clear Quartz is providing you, amplifying the life energy within you. Breathe in and breathe out.
Feel how the life energy and the energy of the moon, nourish you and guide your mind. See how the chaos envelops in front of you, and you are left with pure bliss, joy, and calmness.
Start focusing on the intentions that you want to set. We recommend you start with one intention, but if you have more than one, that is okay as well. Focus on seeing your dreams, so life-like, as if they are a reality already.
Breathe in and breathe out. When you feel ready, open your eyes and place the reiki generator on your altar or holy space, and hold your Clear Quartz in your palm.
Place the three Herbal Pillar Candles – Confidence, Manifest a Miracle and Creativity in the following order:
- Place Manifest a Miracle at the back pointer of the reiki generator.
Focus on your intentions as you light each candle starting from left, to right. Then place the clear quartz on the front side of the reiki generator, completing the circle of amplifying energy.
Breathe in and breathe out. Now take your Turquoise Mala Beads and touch each bead as you repeat the following mantra:
“I am unfolding the path towards my magic. I will manifest my dreams”
When you come to the end of the Mala Beads, say a little prayer of gratitude and conclude your ritual.
Whenever you feel like you need a little boost in energy, use your reiki generator or light one of the pillar candles.
Whenever you feel like you are stuck, meditate with your Clear Quartz or place it under your pillow before you go to sleep.
