New Moon in Cancer + Total Solar Eclipse brings a double dose of new beginnings

July 1, 2019

This one is a major mid-year reboot!


These highly auspicious and hugely significant planetary alignments peak within 5 minutes of each other (times given are for Cape Town South Africa):

  • New Moon at 21h17
  • Total Solar Eclipse at 21h22

A new moon signifies new beginnings, fresh start, new ideas and a new chapter in life.

A solar eclipse signifies the same in that it is an opening to the new and fresh in your life.


So today is a double dose of planetary goodness supporting us for the next step in our lives on all levels. You may have had a sense that things are going to change…and soon. I have had a sense of this and I am also getting that it will be all-encompassing through all areas of my life. My advice is to really look at your life and make empowered choices which are right for you. 


Remember that you are the only one who knows what is best for you in any given moment…always.


Mindfulness Tip: Conscious Choice vs Default Setting:
Remember to set your intention/choice/wish for some extra magic and sparkle. This is important as you have free will in each moment. So choosing consciously what you would like this moon cycle to bring you will allow things to align, come into harmony and synchronize with what you choose..


Be extra mindful about what you are intending or choosing; as what is chosen now sets up the next 6 months of the year – until 31 December 2019.


The reason for this is because the energies of a new (or full) moon have an effect which lasts for 2 weeks. Solar eclipse energies have an effect which lasts for 6 months.


Remember the solar eclipse from 21 January this year and what you may or may not have chosen? This will be either visible or prevalent in your life now – or not. What you choose and create now will carry forward through the rest of this year.


The new moon is at 10 degrees in Cancer
Aspects which are significant for the number 10:

  • new beginning as it is a combination of the numbers 1 and 0 which add up to 1
  • 1 is a masculine number as it is signifies outward movement, focus, strength and giving
  • 0 is a feminine number as it signifies inward movement, embracing, nurturing and receiving

Aspects related to Cancer:

  • it is a water and feminine sign which has an emotional, intuitive feel
  • Cancer rules home, emotions, tribe, family, ancestry and security

You may be experiencing either deep inner peace, calm and flow in your daily life

  • Resistance to change is intensified
  • Heightened emotions, anxiety, fears
  • Inner strength and resolve waning or weaker than usual
  • Feeling aggressive and lacking in your usual tact and diplomacy
  • People, situations, circumstances literally eclipsing in and out of your life

How you can navigate this passage with ease and grace:

  • Stay away from chaos, drama, gossip and negative news
  • Keep your focus and discipline strong
  • Take responsibility for all areas of your life
  • Choose between staying stuck in the past versus embracing change and growth
  • Use your EQ (Emotional Intelligence), intuition and truth to stay in harmony within
  • Focus on being present in your heart – your heart holds the truth of who you are and where you find your comfort and safety
  • Be out in nature as much as possible
  • Let go of what is not in alignment at Soul level
  • Rest as much as you need to and drink lots of water
  • Dream BIG as universal support is high for the next 6 months.

Make the next 6-month wonderful new adventure joyful, playful and exciting!


Sending all Love, Light and Compassionate Blessings 😊
