There is still time to make a wish…and for your dreams to come true!

We are going to the moon that is not very far. Man has so much farther to go within himself. -Anais Nin

I had hoped to post this yesterday, but time and health did not permit. However I did make a significant breakthrough health wise- one that I’ve been waiting and wishing for for some time. I love that it happened on the first day of the new moon in Cancer, my birth sign.

I’ve been a fan of new moon wishing and Jan Spiller for many years, and thought I’d share some of what she offers with all of you.  This month’s New Moon occurs on Monday, the 8th at 2:15AM, EST.  The best times for wishing are within the 48-hour period following its occurrence.

For centuries farmers the world over have known to plant their crops by the cycles of the Moon. In America, farmers determine the best time to plant their crops by consulting the annual Farmer’s Almanac for the dates and phases of the Moon.

The Moon moves rapidly through the constellations of the zodiac, and aligns with the Sun (conjoins the Sun) approximately every twenty-nine and a half days. This is called the New Moon, and is the period of time when we cannot see the Moon in the night sky.

The New Moon promotes all forms of growth. Its potency takes hold AFTER the exact time of the conjunction and remains in force for the next 48 hours. For example, if you want your hair to grow more quickly and fully, have it cut right after the New Moon takes place. If you want your fingernails to grow long and strong, have manicures during the same time period.

This New Moon is in the sign of CANCER, and is a powerful time of the year for wishes involving your home, improving relationships with close family members, and gaining a greater sense of personal security in any area that is important to you: your job, relationships, health, money, romance. Things you may have wanted to happen in your life for a long time can begin easily manifesting through using the boost of the deeply emotional, heartfelt CANCER New Moon.  You can write your wishes in your journal, or on a piece of paper, even scrap paper will do. But do write them down- as this makes them more likely to manifest.

Anything initiated during the first 48 hours following the New Moon will be met with rapid growth: a business venture, a relationship, a creative project. The New Moon Power Period is fruitful for strong new beginnings.

The New Moon takes place this month on:

MONDAY  / JULY 8 / 3:14 am, EDST

CANCER – 16 degrees, 18 minutes

What to wish for:

In addition to on-going wishes in areas that are recurring for you, on this day wishes related to the sign of CANCER are especially potent:

  • Sample wishes:  “I want to easily find myself experiencing a reciprocal feeling of caring in my relationships with others”;
  • “I want to easily find myself empathically understanding others in a  way that is not threatening to me”;
  • “I want to feel a deep sense of belonging within myself in various life situations”;
  • “I want all feelings of insecurity easily lifted from me”; “I want the tendency to be ruled by my moods easily lifted from me”;
  • “I want to attract, recognize, and purchase the right home for me at a price I can easily afford”;
  • “I want to easily find myself saying the right words to my mother that create an experience of mutual respect, support, love, and understanding.”
