Tomorrow marks July's new moon and it's the SECOND new moon in Cancer this year, which is quite the rare astrological event (two new moons under the same sign). This specific new moon encourages a second opportunity to nest (Cancer is a natural host for the nesting nature of a new moon anyway) and find peace, quiet and clarity.
Sign me up!
Sara Coughlin of InStyle Magazine describes the new moon phase as "The point of a new moon is to acknowledge all that you can do, then choose what, exactly, you want to do. Doing more than that is beyond the demands of the phase. Think of yourself as a boulder at the top of a hill. You don’t have to worry about your trajectory down the slope or even where you’ll land. Focus, instead, on what is going to deliver that initial nudge to set things in motion".
So. Much. Yes.
I'll be personally taking some time today to thoughtfully decide on my initial nudge today and urge you to find some of the same time for yourself. Plan out any of your new moon rituals, start to DREAM up your word and intentions for this month and then let it roll.
Enjoy July's new moon this week - join me for a yin class or new moon event from the serenity of your own space if it serves your self care this week!

The moon represents deep feminine wisdom. Engaging regularly with the moon cycles is a powerful way to become intimately connected with the phases of birth, death, and rebirth. In our lives, we too are constantly moving through these cycles, seasons, and changes. Connecting to and working with the moon as she cycles, creates a life of deeper meaning and more authentic connection as we are able to live a life with more awareness and intention. Join us in a women’s circle as we practice grounding techniques, breath work and development of our intuition. We will share virtual space with each other to receive, connect, and create.
