Happy New Moon in Cancer!
This Blessing Moon cycle is going to have such a beautiful flow of energy! The Solstice just ushered in a new season (Summer for Northern Hemi & Winter for Southern Hemi), and with every new season this is a time to reset, create new intentions, and begin anew. The theme for the Blessing Moon cycle is abundance, celebration, contentment, and finding your unique rhythms and flow with the Universe.
With Jupiter going direct last Full Moon, June 9th, we have an amazing positive flow of energy moving through our intentions giving us optimism, joy, playfulness, abundance, and luck!
This will be a wonderful moon cycle to focus on abundance, career goals, and expanding on your dreams!
This Moon cycle is also unique because all 4 elements are present at each of the four turnings (New, First Quarter, Full, and Last Quarter Moons). This does not happen very often! Usually one or two elements are missing and there is a dominant element in the Moon cycle.
When each element is present for each of the 4 major phases of the moon cycle, there is elemental equilibrium and is called a Pentagram Cycle.
This Blessing Moon cycle we begin with the New Moon in Cancer (the water element); First Quarter in Libra (the air element); the Full Moon in Capricorn (the earth element); and the Last Quarter in Aries (the fire element)!
With each element present, this means manifesting your intentions or abundance, will most likely happen this moon cycle! When working with magick and manifesting, each of the elemental energies need to be present and invoked.
Keep reading below, to see how you can work with each of the elements this moon cycle to move forward on your path!
June 24th: New Moon in Cancer
flow with productivity
The New Moon brings us into the watery realm of Cancer. Depending on the time zones, some people will experience the New Moon on Friday, and some on Saturday, so always consult your own moon app in your specific time zone.
The Cancer energy may have you feeling extremely emotional and internal, but you could harness your emotions to infuse your intentions and make your emotions your ally. The card chosen for the New Moon is the Honey Moon card for productivity! This can be a very productive and enriching moon cycle if you choose it to be! Call in your Spirit guides and Higher Self, and begin by writing out your intentions and really pour your heart into them. Don't hold back! When you have written it all out, now actually speak it aloud to the New Moon (though you may not see her, She is there with you :)
If you get emotional while speaking your intentions aloud, don't fight them, let them flow through you. This is infusing your intentions and speaking them aloud raises their vibrations.
For this coming Full Moon, we will be making an abundance grid (there will be a blog post for the ceremony on the Full Moon so stay tuned!). Begin to Choose the crystals you want to work with. Whatever crystals you choose lay them out under the New Moon energy and let them hear your intentions too. This will infuse the crystals with your energy.
July 1st: First Quarter in Libra
check in with your instincts
The First Quarter brings us into the airy realm of Libra. Depending on the time zones, some people will experience the First quarter on Friday, and some on Saturday, so always consult your own moon app in your specific time zone.
Quarter Moons are always a good time in the moon cycle to check in with yourself. The card chosen for the phase the the Wolf Moon for trusting your instincts. Libra energy may have you feeling indecisive possibility about a major direction change in your intentions for your career, or a relationship (most likely a business relationship)... trust your instincts. Check in with your guides and listen to their message.
Today will be a great day to invoke the air realm and prepare your crystals further for the grid. Give them and yourself a good smudge. Use Palo Santo, sage, or any incense and cleanse each crystal and your body. This will help shift your energy in the direction you need it to go.
July 9th: Full Moon in Capricorn
devote yourself to your goals
The Full Moon brings us into the earth realm of Capricorn. Depending on the time zones, some people will experience the Full moon on Saturday, and some on Sunday, so always consult your own moon app in your specific time zone.
If there was ever a Full Moon to work with career and money magick it is the Full moon in Capricorn. Capricorn energy is stable and abundant and knows how to achieve. The card pulled for the Full Moon is Devotion. Devotion is key to creating success. Committing to your goals and committing to your worth will show the universe you are ready to receive your abundance. If there is fear and resistance, ask yourself how you are self sabotaging your success. Capricorn will give you a no non-sense answer. Capricorn is practical and knows what it wants and won't let fear stand in the way. Use the energy to push forward and activate your crystal grid! (There will be a ceremony all about this, don't worry!) Make sure you have all your crystals needed for the your grid by this time and that they are all cleansed and ready to go!
July 16th: Last Quarter in Aries
offer & inspire gratitude
The Last Quarter moon leaves us in the fire realm of Aries. Aries is an interesting energy in the waning moon. We can literally burn off residual energy by creating heat in our body... detox yoga, a good sweat session, or relaxing in the sauna are a few ideas to try.
However, the card pulled for this phase the the Harvest Moon reminding us to have gratitude for the blessings we already have. Instead of releasing negativity or unwanted energy at the end of this cycle, release gratitude instead. Let Aries inspire you and go out of your way to show you are grateful. Write a thank you card to someone who was really helpful and supportive this cycle. Make a list of blessings and burn them in a fire and bury the ashes in the earth. The earth will renew and transform this energy
offering heartfelt gratitude will keep you in the flow of abundance
Leave your crystal grid activated until the last day of this moon cycle (July 22nd). As a thank you to the crystals and the elements, choose one crystal from the grid and give it back to the earth. Anoint this crystal with your favorite perfume oil to invoke fire and place it out in nature somewhere as an offering to the land, or leave it somewhere someone else can find it. They will find your crystal and see it as a gift or sign, thus abundance, joy, and gratitude will continue to grow and cause a ripple effect.
We hope you enjoyed this reading and hope you practice these offerings this cycle! we would love to hear your story as your journey unfolds this Blessing Moon cycle!
Don't forget to choose the crystals you want to use for your crystal grid for the Full Moon on July 9th! Cleanse them under the New Moon and try the Blessing Moon reading from the Spirit de la Lune guidebook!
