New Moon in Cancer + Neowise Comet – Tired and Wired
By Sibylle Stehli,
July 20, 2020
This New Moon peaks on Monday 20 July at 19h32 in Cape Town South Africa.
It feels as if things are building to a culmination and there is a sense of simultaneous restlessness and feeling restricted on some level. All we have been working towards, even through this unusual COVID experience, feels as if it is coming together on one level and yet the feeling of being restricted or held back prevails as well. For me it feels like being a racehorse in a starting gate and the start-gun seems to take a really long time to fire.
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...
This New Moon is in the sign of Cancer – it was also in this sign with the Solar Eclipse in June. Cancer is a feminine, watery sign and so it has an effect on emotions. It also puts the emphasis on going within, intuition, home, security, peace and harmony.
Added to this we have the planet Saturn stationing directly opposite the moon at this time. Saturn’s adds the aspect of feeling restricted or held-back as it highlights self-discipline and strength of character.
We also have a comet in our skies currently (it has an orbit of 6800 years) and is visible from the northern hemisphere into August. It is a very bright comet and has a fiery essence and its tail can signify sweeping change, cleansing and clearing.
The Numerology of this Moon
It peaks at 19h32 so we have a combination of the number 10/1 (1 + 9 = 10 and reduces to the single number 1) and 5 (3 + 2). The degree at the time of peak is 28 and this also reduces to a number 1 (2 + 8 = 10).
So the influence of the number 1 is strong and it represents standing in your own leadership, independence, living your Truth and new beginnings. New Moons are all about new beginnings and this has a strong influence this time.
Then we have the number 5 and this is bringing in the essence of change. It could be small or large changes, depending on where you are in your journey.
What I have been experiencing since the previous post
It has been a time of things happening instantaneously as well as long periods of ‘stretched-out’ time. What I mean with this aspect of time is that it seems to fly past in milliseconds and yet on another level it has felt like I need immense patience as nothing appears to be happening.
What is occurring with Gaia / Earth is that her magnetic fields are shifting and when they do this, they go through a process of expansion and contraction at various levels. Hence the times of instantaneous or near-instantaneous results and then a period of ‘nothing is happening again’.
An example of this happened for me in this way:
I was staying with a friend for a few days and on the day I arrived at her place, I mentioned that I cannot wait to get back to living on the Atlantic Seaboard and mentioned Mouille Point Lighthouse. A friend who lives in Mouille Point, contacted me 3 hours later to enquire whether I was available for a house-sit opportunity for this past weekend! The time in-between the arrangements being made and the weekend in question, seemed to simultaneously drag and zoom past and left me feeling restless at times and in deep presence at other times. I have often been out in nature to ground and allow my magnetic / heart field to adjust to the shifting magnetics of the Earth.
What you may be experiencing at this time
- Exhaustion at a deep core level
- Feeling restless, held back or restricted and impatient
- Nausea, headaches, period disturbances, bloatedness and gut upsets
- Feeling happy and peaceful and yet there is an underlying energy of stagnation
- Looking outside of yourself for confirmations when the sudden insights and inspirations do come, instead of nurturing the wisdom and joy within
How you can best help yourself at this time
- Rest, rest and more rest
- Stay hydrated at all times as much is releasing and shifting beyond our awareness
- Sit with your back against a tree or hug a tree and draw in the strength and stability it offers
- Go out often in nature and put bare feet on the grass, in the soil and feel yourself being aligned and recharged with the magnetics of the Earth
- Stay out of judgement and honour yourself and others with compassion and empathy
- Be really gentle with yourself and others as we are all in this together and handling what we have happening in our lives in the best way we each know how.
Surrender and trust the unfolding, evolving process.
Remember that everything is as it needs to be at any given moment in your life, even if you do not know the bigger picture yet.
Sending all Love, Light and Compassionate Blessings ?
