Cancer New Moon – LEAN IN

The new moon in Cancer (July 20th, 18:33 BST) is opposite Saturn in its home sign of Capricorn. It feels like the two grandparents, stern, but ultimately invested in our wellbeing, are watching over us. 

In a year already filled with weirdness, what happens next? Is it possible to bring elements from the past (ours, and from our ancestors) forward, in a healthy way, into the present? Not everything is obsolete, and equally, not everything traditional is useful. Lean in to what works, discriminate wisely. Ask the elders, incarnate or in spirit, for help. 

“The songs of our ancestors are also the songs of our children”
― Philip Carr-Gomm

 

Divination/ Journaling Prompts

*Whose child am I? 
*What are my ancestral blessings?
*What are my ancestral burdens?
*What is the song of my ancestors that I should sing today?

Ritual/ EveryDayMagic/ Spellwork Suggestions

*Spend time with your ancestors, whatever that looks like for you
*Spend time with your ancestors of place, the tree/ mountain/ city/ river spirits who you cohabit with
*Write your epitaph, what is your legacy? This doesn’t need to be morbid. I would love for mine to say “was kind”.
