The July New Moon comes amidst two full moons, one at the beginning and the other at the end of the month – that has to mean something, right? It’s called a Blue Moon month and is something that doesn’t happen very often, hence the phrase “Once in a blue moon.”
Stuck In An Energetic Sandwich
Energetically the Cancerian new moon feels like an overfull sandwich bulging in the middle, ready to burst. This could mean bursting with ideas, love or a lot of pent up emotions. Imagine holding the sandwich in your hands. You have to carefully navigate its contents, taking care how you eat it so you don’t end up with filling daubed everywhere. If you try to coax pieces back into the sandwich you’ll likely create overflow somewhere else. Are you getting the picture?
Well, that is pretty much how this new moon is too. Lots of potential to burst out, but be careful not to go in “guns blazing,” that’s when problems arise. This can be an intense emotional period in many of our lives with ample opportunities to heal old wounds. Let’s imagine the sandwich filling is your emotional world. Push too hard and it could get messy. The key phrase for this new moon is “don’t force it, just go with the flow.”
3 Crystals To Help You Navigate This Journey
My intuition guided me to share 3 crystals to support you on your journey this new moon.
This beautiful heart stone helps you to feel safe and nurtured while you accept healing and process the release of excess emotions. Pink is the color of unconditional love. This stone opens your heart to receive love from others as well as yourself reminding you that it is safe to love.
Another healing stone for the emotions, Amber absorbs negativity, transmutes it, and creates a protective shield. Golden orange heals memories of childhood traumas particularly issues of physical, mental or emotional abuse. Amber is a fossilized resin associated with Leo. I feel we are directed to use it to help us move smoothly from the emotional period of Cancer into the exuberance and glow of Leo.
I know this stone as Angel Wing Anhydrite and like a wing it has many layers. This physical property helps work through issues, problems, projects, ideas, etc., layer by layer. When we protect ourselves emotionally this can be reflected physically with layers excess weight. So this stone helps release attachment to the past and can in turn support weight loss.
A Full Moon Crystal To Awaken Your Abundance
The full moon completes the month in Aquarius, the sign of the visionary. It feels like the completion of a transformative journey encouraging you to redesign how you look, your vision for your life and how you want to be perceived by your peers. I am shown Peacock Ore in my mind’s eye; its other name is Chalcopyrite. This vibrant stone reveals the way to abundance through your state of mind and being. Use it to awaken your prosperity mojo and to secure this newfound affluence in your life for years to come.
Let me know in the comments how this July has been treating you. And don’t be to hard on yourself if you feel like it’s been a whirlwind of emotions!
