The Velvet Side of Things: Cancer New Moon

It’s my birthday month, so shoutout to my fellow Cancers! The new moon in Cancer helps us channel our feelings from the Gemini New Month last month. The New Moon is an opportunity to wipe the slate clean, to start fresh, and to see things from a new perspective. It is our opportunity to release the old and focus on the new that is emerging.  The sign of Cancer is vital because of how spiritually connected we are to our emotions and each other. Known as the Crab, Cancers tend to have a hard shell and a very soft shell. Crabs are adventurous and love to be aware of their surroundings, but at first sight of danger, you see them flee. In that way, it makes perfect sense that this Cancer new moon isn’t about sitting in a pool of feelings. It’s far more action-oriented, thanks to not only the cardinal nature of the Crab. The energy of the Cancer Moon also encourages deep and unwavering self-love. It is a time to truly nourish yourself from the inside out.

In-Style has a great recent article breaking down what that means for each sign, check that out here.
