Cancer New Moon Ritual

Hello, fellow Magic Makers!

This year has been really tough on us, and a lot of things have been holding us back and giving us a really hard time. We were forced to look inwards, and now with everything we know about ourselves, the time has come to finally start a period where we will move forward. And it all starts with this Cancer New Moon and Solar Eclipse.

The Meaning Of The Solar Eclipse

On the 21st, an Annular Solar Eclipse in the first degree of Cancer brings our focus once again on home, security, emotional receptivity, and feminine power. This is one of the last eclipses in the two-year Cancer-Capricorn cycle that has revolutionized the way we approach social rules, hierarchies, power, and security, and it can be a powerful moment for setting intentions of softness, emotional sensitivity, receptivity and courage that comes from vulnerability.

The Eclipse’s quincunx with Saturn in Aquarius shows that we need to find a way to integrate both our sensitive and our detached, progress-oriented side, while a distant square with Mars prompts us to find healthy ways of fighting for our security. Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, especially with planets around the 1st degree, will be the signs for which this Eclipse can bring fated events in the areas of the home, family, security, heritage, and emotion.

Bringing more watery energy into the mix, Neptune starts his annual retrograde on the 23rd, prompting us to go within and to connect more to our spiritual, compassionate side in the following months.

How To Harness The Energy Of The Cancer New Moon?

The best way to harness the energy is to perform a ritual to get in touch with your feminine energy, and with it enhance your intentions for the next 6 months. We recommend working with some moonstone, clear quartz, and light a candle for manifesting during the New Moon.

  • First, take a few moments to list down on your goals for the following six months. List down the most important goals that you have and the goals that really resonate with your soul. If you have a list from your New Year resolutions, it’s a good time to revisit it and see what you need to still work on, and what goals you need to ditch. It’s no shame to remove goals – however, remove only those that no longer light a magical spark within you. List down 10 things that you want to accomplish in the following 6 months. Focus on your goals.

  • Then, take your list, and place it below your candle. Take a few deep breaths to calm yourself down, and take your moonstone in your left hand and your clear quartz in your right one. Focus on calming yourself down. Breathe in and out. Focus on the energy of your crystals.

  • Then visualize your goals, getting stronger and clearer. When you feel ready, open your eyes, and touch the wax of the candle. Say each goal clearly and loudly.

  • When you list down all of your goals, light your candle, and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere that the candle creates, and the energy it sends out. Either leave the candle to burn down completely or when you are taking its flames out, never blow it! Use your fingers instead!

  • Burn it every night until it burns down completely.
