New Moon Eclipse in Cancer
It is officially eclipse season, which means it’s time to make major changes. Unlike normal new and full moons, eclipses create impacts that time to unpack. They bring to our awareness parts of our subconscious that have lay dormant for years and invite us to change long-lasting patterns of behavior. Of course, this is all in the interest of our highest evolution. But astrologically speaking, the energy of July is extra charged, and might be difficult to navigate. So take extra care of yourself! Rest. Drink lots of water. Today’s eclipse in Cancer is conjunct the north node, meaning that it helps us identify what we want more of in our life. The north node is a point of craving, of desire, and, if we’re not careful, of greed. Use this transit to get really clear on what you want and need, but also know that everything takes time. With an aligned intention and dedication, the magic of this lunar cycle will take you exactly where you need to go.
You have the power to choose what you inherit from your family, and what you release. Hold on to legacies that strengthen you and let go of those that keep you small.

The place that you call home and the people in it are the foundation of your life. They have tremendous potential to care for you, to uplift you, and to help you feel loved. You deserve to be supported.
