The Cancer Modality โ™‹

By modality, Cancer is a water sign. Of the five elements, water is the most loving. Water heals and energizes. The human body, too, is 60 percent water and thus carries miraculous powers of self-healing.
The New moon in Cancer exactly symbolizes this rejuvenation - nudging that innate vital power of healing.
The complete darkness rendered on the New moon is the fertile ground for your feelings to take root. This is the delicate time when your mind is highly receptive to universal love, first being manifested through your loved ones and immediate members of your family.
If you closely observe yourself during this New Moon and the weeks (at least two) that follow, you'll see a sharp change in your behavioral patterns towards people in your immediate surroundings. And the best aspect of this change is that you haven't consciously induced it.
Graciousness will autonomously spring forth, and in the process, you'll determine that you are the focus, the center point of this change. You are the source of the change!

Neptune in Harmony - The Yin Energies at Work ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ

The New Moon in Cancer is occurring in harmony with Neptune.
The further alignment of this New Moon with Neptune fuels our need to serve and nurture others - without really expecting anything. Neptune is the planet of unconditional love, dreams, fantasies, and harmony.
So in totality, it's the Yin energies taking root and building an extensive system during this New Moon.
Interestingly, Cancer rules over the breastbone - the chest - the focal point of the Heart chakra. The breastbone is a flat bone and forms the center front of your chest wall. It resembles the hard shell of a crab.
The storehouse for the Yin energies that intensify when the New Moon leaps in Cancer, just like your breastbone is the container for your heart chakra.

Be cautious - It's Pluto in Opposition โš ๏ธ

The New Moon happens in Cancer at 24 degrees and 54 minutes.
Happening in the rear degrees of Cancer, your emotions could leap crazily. And to bring in some dash of fun, this might be 'the going mad' time as Pluto stands stark opposite to the New Moon.
Besides driving us a little nuts, in hindsight, Pluto signifies transformation.
With inducing intense transformations, Pluto could rub you the wrong way. The combination of New Moon, Cancer, and Pluto can possibly ignite combustion in your mind.
You might feel overwhelmed by your feelings and get swept away. Cancer is ruled by the Moon. Both the Moon and Pluto, as planets, govern the deeper domains of your mind. The intricate convolutions of the mind are deeply connected with the Soul's journey.
So during this time, your sense of security could wobble a little. You'll feel both baked and naked! This is because the New moon (in Cancer) will start revealing your hidden side, and Pluto (in opposition) will further unnerve you.
Just like the tectonic plates rubbing against each other and then inducing an earthquake of high magnitude, this new moon will trigger some major behavioral shifts in you. Your lack of safety could be unsafe lack of safety that could possibly jeopardize your relationships with others.
The best way out is to not get swept away. Fear could wash through us, but there's always a way. If you feel you're into something toxic (be it work or relationship), end it. This is the best time to discover unconditional love, but first, this love has to be for you and then for others.

Spend more time with your family ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ
Spending time with your family and connecting with them is one of the best rituals to practice during the New Moon in Cancer (and for the other two weeks). Doing this often will cultivate a deeper sense of purpose in you. This ritual will also heal and healthify you. New Moon in Cancer is all about nesting and being comfortable amongst your people. The New Moon will start churning new emotions which could perplex you. Removing the time for your loved ones will enable you to undo your burdens and untie the knots.
Journal your thoughts๐Ÿ“
Journaling your thoughts is another effective way of reaching out to your innermost self. Just pick up a pen and write down your thoughts. No matter how random your thoughts may seem, pen them down. Scribbling your thoughts will cleanse your mind of the tumult the Cancer New Moon brings in. Some erratic energies will arise as you pass through the New Moon. Writing down your feelings will enable you to organize your thoughts and realize their potency.
Look for inspiration and pursue some art๐ŸŽจ
Look around and try to figure out what fascinates you. This is the best time to awaken your artistic talents. The Cancer New Moon is making you even more sensitive and receptive to your deepest emotions. All you have to do is tap into your latent talents and give them a chance for expression. Pick up a paintbrush, strum the guitar, bake, and scribble a poem/thoughts. Do whatever you like. The entire point is to let your energies loose enough to spill out in creative forms.
Meditate on your heart chakra๐Ÿ’š
What better time to meditate on the New Moon than heart chakra? The heart chakra is located in the center of the chest. Glowing green in color, this chakra has 8 petals. Sit on a blanket in any meditative pose/cross-leg position and simply focus on the center of your heart. You may also use a chair if you find sitting on the floor difficult. Visualize the chakra with eight petals. Try to focus on this region for 1 - 5 minutes (depending on your capacity).
Retreat in your shell ๐Ÿž๏ธ
Reflect on your thoughts and feelings. New moon in Cancer is all about peeping into yourself, not only to see your flaws but also to appreciate the good in you. This New Moon will align your mental compass in such a way that you'll be perfectly prepared for some self-discovery! So find a lone place, go there, light a candle (if you wish), sit straight or lean back in your chair, shut your eyes, take a few long breaths and see what starts wheezing inside!
Express yourself to your friends and family ๐Ÿค
The gush of feelings during the New Moon (and for the coming two weeks) is going to be powerful. In fact, a little too much for you to handle. Open up to your friends and family. Speaking about your feelings will empower you and enable you to channelize your energies in the right way. This New moon is all about forging healthy relationships. Sharing your feelings and giving an attentive ear to others (feelings) could work wonders for you this time.
Follow your intuition ๐Ÿ”ฎ
Cancer, by nature, is an intuitive sign. With the New Moon in the Cancerian segment, your intuition will become even more powerful. One of the mistakes we often make is not trusting our inner voice. But don't make this mistake for the Cancer New Moon. Your intuition will be rendered powerful more than ever. If a thought crosses your mind, believe that it has the potency to materialize. Rest all depends on your action. So, trust your instincts and act accordingly.

The Final Idea ๐Ÿ’ก

"Concentrate on new ways to enhance your family life" is the last thing we'd like to tell you. It's a given that this time of the Cancer New moon is highly fertile for your feelings. And your family will act as a fertile ground - a cradle for your new feelings.
It's an emotional time. Certain segments of your life will come up, and they will also be visible to the people around you. Embarrassments could follow, but it's totally up to you to cultivate the powers of this New Moon.
Don't forget that Cancer is a water sign. Anything that washes over you, be it bliss or sorrow, will soon subside. But the subsidence will surely leave some residue behind, just like the receding ocean waters leave some sand behind. Certain impressions this new moon makes on your mind could thus be permanent.
This New Moon gives you a template for development, and then it's your work further. So closely mark the shifts - the dynamic shifts that arise in you.
