New Moon In Cancer June 2014

With the New Moon in Cancer, we explore this water sign and the archetype of the crab. The effects of the new moon are strongest within 72 hours, but the different planetary positions carry a longer influence. Astrologer Heather Roan Robbins and Eye of Horus Founder Thraicie Hawkner discuss the current new moon and offer advice on how to mitigate challenges and maximize opportunities in this episode of Moon Magic. Heather talks about the shell and soft core of the crab, and Thraicie talks about empathy, grounding and more.

First check out the video for all the influences and astrological aspects, and what they mean. Then check out the rest of this article which highlights some of the tools which will help you work with the energy of the Cancer New Moon:

Myrrh, the Temple Incense for Boundaries


Myrrh Essential Oil

Myrrh is good for putting up healthy shielding and filtering type boundary.

On the Tree of Kife, Myrrh corresponds with the sphere of Binah, which is also Saturn. It is very good at form and boundaries and very solid manifestation. Some people don’t like this energy because it is so limiting, but if we are trying to set boundaries, shield and limit chaos, it is ideal. We carry a number of incenses with Myrrh as an ingredient>

Recorded use of Myrrh goes back over 4,000 years. It is a key ingredient in the ancient Egyptian Kyphi temple incense, and the ancient Greek perfume, Megaleion. It is an ingredient in a number of incense blends, and is widely recognized as one of the gifts of the Magi, and as such is one of the ingredients in Three Kings Resin Blend.

It is also a key ingredient in the Eye of Horus Herbal/resin incense blend.

Myrrh Blends well with: Frankincense, Lavender, Patchouli, Tea Tree.

Good Stones for the Cancer New Moon

Prehnite Stone

Prehnite Crystal Tumbled Stone

Prehnite Tumbled Stone approx 1-2 inch

Prehnite is a great stone for shielding and setting boundaries. It strengthens the aura and helps to distinguish the emotions which may be coming from external sources. When you are empathic, picking up on other people’s emotions, sometimes they express as if they are your own. But you need to be able to separate external sources and keep them from affecting your own balance.

With the New Moon in Cancer, even people who usually aren’t overly empathic may need a little extra help so they don’t find themselves dealing with unexpected emotions from who knows where.

Prehnite gives you that filter and shield. For long-term use, it is good for psychic work, especially for discerning what you are picking up from external sources and not just your own inner voice.

Because it is so good at sorting things out, Prehnite also enhances dreams, meditation, intuition, love, forgiveness, compassion, peace calm and prophecies.  Order from the Eye>

Desert (Polychrome) Jasper

We recommend Polychrome Jasper , also called Desert Jasper or Royal Savannah Jasper to bring in a positive, even happy energy. It is excellent to help keep you grounded and safe doing spiritual work. This is a great long-term addition to your altar or carry-pouch (aka medicine bag, mojo bag) to help you with those long term goals and permanent transformations.

06:22:19 PM Central Standard Time
10° 59′ Sagittarius

This Sagittarius New Moon is fertile for growth, if you can embrace all that growth entails. Sometimes there are growing pains, we’d like to avoid, but they make us adapt and become something more. Waken the visionary in you and expand your ideas of what you deem possible. We’re talking Jupiter here, it’s a big planet!  Monday is a good day to orient yourself and launch through the gate. Give yourself a running start, but be ready to reach a pace that will sustain you into the new year.

Make sure you give yourself space during this time, a little extra time for yourself, some extra time outdoors, and especially space for your dreams. If you tend to confine yourself, you know, play it safe, be practical to a fault, don’t. Stop trying to be realistic and if you catch yourself holding back, remember now is not the time. Sagittarius is a powerful force which can launch you further than you’ve dared dream. So dare, dream and keep going!

If you are a big planner and don’t know all of the details of how you will get from here to there, don’t worry to much. Sagittarius is the director behind the scenes, putting those key missing pieces in place, so try to have patience. Do what you can, and just breathe. Let the centaur carry you over that unfamiliar terrain. Sagittarius is all about moving forward, so now is not the time to hit the breaks. You don’t need to race, just keep going.

Full Beaver Moon in Taurus

Full Beaver Moon in Taurus

Full Beaver MoonWhen: Sunday, Nov 17, 2013, 09:16:30 AM Central Standard Time 25° 26′ Taurus

Beaver Moon is the common US full moon name for November. As we’ve seen in the prior months, each symbolic name references a point within the epitome of the month. Beavers are coming into their fullness in November. So much so that the Natives knew to set traps early in the month because the beaver would be in her glory.

Other names for the full moon this month:

Dakota Sioux: Moon When Horns Are Broken Off

Celtic: Dark Moon, Pagan: Tree Moon, New Guinea: Tiger Shark Moon

Full Moon in Taurus

Taurus is very practical, and it’s elemental sign is Earth and is all about adapting to physical life. We’re talking slowing down and focusing on the things which make life a joy and pleasure. Think slow food, senseless beauty, time spent in nature. It’s all about being here now, not to bliss out, but to take in the present moment. Whether you take a walk, play an instrument, learn a new skill, dance, whatever, now is the time you are called to express and experience your physical life.

Explore your senses: sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Cook a meal and share it. Explore the textures of your life, view everything as if through a documentary lens, or as a poet who wants to capture every detail. Be lush in your exploration. If you have a partner to do this exploring with in a more sensual fashion, so much the better! Taurus is ruled by Venus, who is all about love and beauty.

It’s also a good time to take stock of what has value, not just your bank account, but what people, places or things you value the most. Are you spending the time nurturing what matters most?

One way to honor the full moon is meditation. We found this on YouTube: 20 minute Full Moon Meditation.  Blessed Be!
