How the New Moon Energy Could Affect You: 2 – 9 July 2019

From around 8:16 p.m. (UK time) on 2 July 2019 the New Moon will be in the sign of Cancer so, time for an energy shift!

What is New Moon Energy?

New Moons are all about:

  • fresh starts;
  • setting your intentions as to how you will move forward from your current position;
  • “planting seeds” to grow as the New Moon does.

It’s my absolute favourite Moon, full of promise and a chance to start again on a blank page.

What to Do in the New Moon Energy?

Questions to ask yourself at a New Moon:

  • Where in my life could I “start again”?
  • What can I do now to start over in this area of my life?
  • When will be the best time to act on these intentions?
  • How can I prepare to give myself the best opportunity of progressing in this area of my life at the right time?

If you did the groundwork at the Last Quarter Moon of reflecting and assessing progress to date, you will have a strong foundation to begin answering these queries.

Otherwise, that’s what you’ll need to reflect back on now before being best placed to answer these questions.

What About the Sign the New Moon is in?

With the New Moon in the sign of Cancer to begin with, the focus will be very much on home and family life and how you balance your responsibilities here with appropriate self-care and self-nurturing. The sign of Cancer has strong associations to maternal instincts, caring, protective tendencies but is at its best when it does so having first set down boundaries.

Cancer is a Water sign so think feelings, emotions, intuition and immense depth too in all these areas. A time to be with those who make you happiest to really enjoy the more positive aspects of Cancerian energies.

And There’s a Solar Eclipse

A total Solar Eclipse on 2 July 2019 really supercharges this New Moon energy by helping you do a life detox, getting rid of things that no longer serve you to create room for the things that do.

It’s a time of shaking things up, or forward progress and upgrading your life. A time when opportunity comes looking for you – in short, they are portals of change. You may discover your “life purpose” in these energies. A date with destiny. It may be a wake-up call to shake up a family or friendship dynamic.

The Takeaway: If you’ve been reflecting in the last week or so you can now deal with planning areas to adjust/improve in, especially around those closest to you, your friends and family.

Do make sure you have reflected on any lessons learnt to avoid repeating them in this new cycle in order to progress onwards.

With the Solar Eclipse, your plan may turn out to be quite radical and unexpected, so it may not be entirely well-received at first. It feels an exciting energy, where anything can happen; just be sure to prioritise home and family when it matters most.

Using this week as a time for planning progress in the next cycle will give people time to adjust to your unusual ideas, before actually implementing those plans in the better energy of the First Quarter Moon for taking action from 9 July 2019, if possible.

Stay connected to your home and family this week to really capitalise on breathing new life into these areas.

Until next time….

Last Quarter Moon Energy: 25 June – 2 July 2019

Last Quarter Moon Energy: 25 June – 2 July 2019

From around 10:46 am (UK time) on 25 June 2019, the Moon will be in its Last Quarter in the sign of Aries.

What is Last Quarter Moon Energy?

We are back in a time of reflection after revelling in the harvest of the Full Moon energy of last week. As such, it can all feel very much an anti-climax; a hangover or comedown.

If we let it, we can be dragged down by this energy into a wallowing in self-pity in any way we feel we missed the mark in the last cycle, or, where we see the lesson in it, we can instead recognise this, see where we can improve and come up with a road-map to be put to use in next week’s New Moon energy, of where you are now and where you want to get to. Next week will be a time to put the finer detail to it but, for now, analyse your progress as a whole since the last cycle, to get a better insight into the bigger picture.

What is Aries Energy?

Aries is the action-man energy of the entire Zodiac. It’s a real “go-getter” feeling; an impatience to get started which is what, in my view, makes this energy somewhat challenging. In our haste to get started, we may not see the value in this time of withdrawal and reflection, instead wanting to not lose the momentum.

The Sun in Cancer Energy

But the Sun is in Cancer which is a much gentler, maternal energy, feminine and deep with their emotions. It is in balancing these two equally powerful energies that is the key to successfully working with them.

It won’t be easy though – Aries is the tell it like they see it energy which will immediately bring to light any areas of disagreement in feelings and actions in squaring the deep-feeling Sun in Cancer.

What to do in the Last Quarter Moon in Aries Energy?

  • Reflect on the good and the bad from the last cycle – what worked, what didn’t, what could you do differently next time?
  • Learn the lessons in your reflections now so as to make better use of next week’s energy.
  • Practice patience – engage in those activities that distract from taking hasty action until a more opportune time presents itself.

The Takeaway:

If you spent at least some time last week enjoying the fruits of your labours, you’re in the best possible position to make the most of these energies having a better appreciation of what worked and what success meant to you. Otherwise, you’re starting point is to do this now – What have you learnt during the last moon cycle? How can you use what you have learnt to continue to grow?

Once you’re armed with this information, you’ve got yourself a basic road map of where you are vs where you’re trying to get to. The equivalent to a Google Maps search; you may not know the detail of how to get there yet but you’re aware of the general direction.

It is also a time to practice patience, which isn’t easy with Aries energy; distract yourself from time to time this week so that you pace yourself. Enjoy the build up to the New Moon’s energy next week, taking time for self-care and recovery from the excesses of the harvest of the Full Moon, which should be enlightening in itself.

Until next week’s New Moon energy….
