Namaste and New Moon Love
This month’s new moon lands on Friday July 9th at 9:17 pm EST. A reminder that the energies of the new moon can be felt days before and after the exact date of the new moon.
The new moon is a beginning of a 28 day cycle and a supportive time for you to pause, slow down, reflect and listen.
This new moon is in the zodiac of cancer and connected to the water element.
The sign of cancer can be an invitation to reflect upon the theme of home, nurturing, nourishment and our connection to Mother Earth.
What comes to mind when you reflect upon the word, home? The physical home you are living in; the land you are living on; your body temple and sacred vessel; Mother Earth; a soul family; or the felt sense of belonging and feeling “at home” within yourself?
Journal Questions to connect with the theme of home, nurturing, nourishing, mothering, connecting:
How do I nurture my home?
How do I nourish myself?
How do I mother myself and others?
How do I compassionately care for the earth?
Do I feel at ease in my home, in my body?
The mother, the feminine, is the dark.
She is the nutrient rich soil below us,
the cosmic night sky above us,
the fertile womb of creation within us.
We all come from and grow in the dark.
With the new moon in the watery sign of cancer, this is also a beautiful time to connect with, tune into and witness the inner emotional waters and tides. Are the emotions flowing, stagnant, powerful, peaceful, effortless, graceful, forcing, allowing?
What is your inner emotional landscape revealing to you at this time of the new moon?
Goddess Embodiment Practice
Stand with your bare feet on the earth.
Feel your feet rooted below you. Drop your tail bone to the earth, bend the knees gently.
Stand centered and balanced.
Soften your belly, and muscles of the jaw
Breathe into your feet.
Breathe the energy of the earth up into your feet.
Breathe the energy of the earth up into your feet, your legs, yoni and womb.
Feel the energy of the earth spiraling all the way up to your heart and throat.
Repeat this with 7 deep breaths, absorbing the energy into your entire being.
On the 8th breath, open your mouth with a relaxed jaw and allow the sound of the earth to sing through you. Set aside any judgements of your own voice and allow the sounds of the earth to be released up and out your mouth like a soaring eagle. Repeat for as long as feels good.
When you feel complete, bring your hands to your lower belly and take 3 breaths to integrate and settle the energy.
What song is the earth singing through you?
