Tomorrow, June 23rd, at 7:31 pm PST (10:31 EST) the Moon will move into her darkness under the sign of Cancer. I like to call this Moon the Dark Moon. This is the day that the Moon rises with the Sun and is too close to the sun’s glare to be visible with the eye. This Cancer Moon is here to guide you into feeling your potential and helping you to re-orient yourself to your highest work and purpose. Time to plant your seeds of intention under her Dark Moon energy.
Cancer, a water sign, is ruled by Grandmother Moon. Moon in Cancer reconnects us with our oceans of emotions and so we may find ourselves feeling more deeply or with a heightened sensitivity. Cancer is the sign of the archetypal mother, our own mothers as well as the Great Mother Earth. Under this Dark Moon in Cancer we can also find many other planets positioned in water signs: Chiron (Pisces), Mercury (Cancer), Mars (Cancer) and Neptune (Pisces) ~ making water very prominent and deeply felt under this Moon.
This is a time to remember that water is medicine.
Water is about movement, flow, and change. She is our most vital life resource, a cleanser, and a way to release into and give blessings under this Cancer Moon.
The water element is related to the heart, to our connection with others, which is why it is so important to be alert to her condition around the world. As we allow her to be mistreated and filled with toxins ~ we will find that our own hearts will feel the same mistreatment and become filled with troubles and harm.
I believe this new moon is the perfect time for a water blessing ceremony ~ to help heal you, the water and the world. In fact I dedicate EVERYDAY from today a day for a water blessing ceremony!
I have designed this ceremony around the Sacred Geometry of the water element, the Icosahedron (this geometry corresponds to the Sacral Chakra so working with this Chakra is also healing under this Moon). The Icosahedron enhances your creative thought process and can help to move and eliminate emotional blocks to give your creativity the openness ‘to go with the flow’ to move you through challenging and/or exciting changes.
Combining sacred geometry with crystals gives the water additional healing properties. I recommend using Rose Quartz, Amethyst, and Clear Quartz, as they are safe to place inside and outside the water; and contain amazing energies. Quartz provides clarity in thinking; the Rose Quartz brings in a positive, gentle love; and Amethyst is the teacher of all things spiritual and healing to body, mind and soul.
Your Water Blessing Ceremony:
Or you can use the Hawaian Huna Ho’oponopono blessing:
I am sorry, I forgive you, thank you, I love you.
In the morning of the Crescent Moon, June 24th, before eating or drinking anything else ~ bless the water and then take a sip. Feel your own healing powers as she moves into your system....this is your water to seed and bless your intention, use it daily. You can bless yourself with your intention by placing drops under your tongue, drinking it, or placing the drops on your body. You may not see or feel it right away, be patient, it may take a few days before you will notice something.
Use this water through out the next few weeks to change the vibration of the water you drink and cook with. Just place a few drops of your blessed water into your water jug or cooking pan. A few drops is enough to change the vibration of the other water and don’t forget to bless it at the same time! When we take on the act of blessing our water and sharing it with our bodies and larger bodies of water we become a force of healing ~ near and far.
Water is the greatest of all substances and is closely connected to the feminine and our intuition. The great flow of life is in water and that is the beauty and power of water blessings. We cannot change things outside of ourselves, because everything is coming from within. When we go inside and take responsibility for how we are feeling it has a direct effect on the planet. The ocean is made up of drops and we are each one of those precious drops ~ so let us start here one drop at a time….
Bless your water ~ bless the world,
