I’m just dropping in real quick to remind y’all of the New Moon in Cancer coming up on the 4th of July.
Any time there’s a moon in Cancer, it’s a good time to focus on self care. This Moon in Cancer feels particularly fortuitous because it comes right after Mars Retrograde, when we could all use a little TLC.
Self Care Ideas For This Moon:
Soak. Take a bath. Add your favorite oils and water/skin-safe crystals to it. Add flowers. Have a glass of wine. Put on some Erykah Badu and just f l o a t.
Meditate. Take a second to just be in the moment and breathe. Let the edges of your skin and the boundaries of your body blend seamlessly with the fabric of the Universe.
Use a Fave. That tea/lotion/lipstick/bath bomb/whatever you’ve been saving for a “special occasion”? Use it. You survived Mars retrograde. That’s a special occasion. You’re still breathing. That’s a special occasion.
Magick. For anything. Cleanse your home. Your bedroom. Make a calm-sleep pillow. If you cast circles, cast one and just bask in it.
Dream. If your dreams mean a lot to you, if they help you make sense of your inner, emotional world, let them be the way you make sense of what you’ve been through, and the guidepost for where to go now.
And that’s about it, y’all. Remember to take some time out for yourselves this July 4th. It’s been a hell of a couple of months, and you deserve to feel okay.
