The July new moon in Cancer brings with it a powerful opportunity for manifestation and visualisation. During this time, the cosmic energy is aligned to support our intentions and desires.
This is a period of high lunar energy since the Moon is in Cancer, where it is most at home. Cancer, a Water sign ruled by the Moon, experiences all of life's emotions and is ferociously protective of their home and loved ones.
At the time of the Cancer New Moon, when we become more aware of our inner feelings regarding our life situations, this emotional energy can feel rather potent.
The New Moon in Cancer is an excellent time to start a renovation project, buy a new home, or rekindle family ties since it encourages us to feel "at home" with ourselves and others.
Here are three ways you can harness the energy of the new moon to manifest your dreams.
1. Set Intentions.
Take some time to reflect on what you truly want to manifest in your life. Write down your intentions in a journal or on a piece of paper. Be specific and clear about what you want to create or attract. Visualize yourself already having achieved your goals and feel the emotions associated with it. By setting clear intentions, you are sending a powerful message to the universe about what you want to manifest.
2. Create a Vision Board and Visualize.
A vision board is a visual representation of your goals and desires. Gather magazines, images, and words that resonate with your intentions. Cut out these images and words and arrange them on a board or a piece of paper. Display your vision board in a place where you can see it daily. By regularly looking at your vision board, you are reinforcing your intentions and keeping them at the forefront of your mind. Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can relax and focus your mind. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to center yourself. Visualize yourself in the future, living your desired reality. Imagine all the details, sensations, and emotions associated with it. Feel the joy, gratitude, and fulfillment as if it is happening right now. The more vivid and detailed your visualization, the more powerful it becomes.
3. Out with the Old.
When we give our small, private activities meaning, they develop into rituals. There are things you may do to encourage this emotional release if there is something you need to let go of from the past month, year, or possibly much longer. What you want to let go of should be listed on a little piece of paper. then choose one of the following:
Ink that will run makes this step more pleasant, so submerge the paper in water.
smoulder the paper. Holding the paper over the sink and away from your body is the safest way to do this. Watch it burn away after lighting one end and placing it in the washbasin. This can be done outside as well. Toss the torn pieces of paper in the compost or recycling bin (if it is biodegradable). As an alternative, you might write down the things you want to let go of and then erase them using a whiteboard and erasable pen or a chalkboard and some chalk.
Remember, the new moon in Cancer is a time of deep emotional connection and nurturing. Use this energy to tap into your intuition and align your thoughts and emotions with your intentions. Trust in the process and have faith that the universe will support you in manifesting your dreams.
