Cancer women are truly unique to the zodiac in that they are ruled by the moon, which travels across the globe shining it’s effervescent light in the night sky. Their strong tie to the moon explains their infamous moodiness, but is in fact a useful tool that all Cancer women can utilize for their benefit. Cancer women would be wise to follow the moon’s phases to gain insight into their lives and to manifest their desires.
The moon orbits the earth every 28 days, waxing and waning, while visiting each zodiac sign for 2 and 1/2 days. This predictable and quick schedule around the earth is felt by everyone on the planet, but specifically by women with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant sign in Cancer.
The moon influences the mind and emotions, and has a direct effect on our ocean’s tides. This ties Cancer women to the element of water, which is fluid, sensitive and indirect. Lunar phases, or lunations, are important for Cancer women to understand, as tracking the lunar phases throughout the month brings insight into their moods and energies, and allows them to plan ahead to make the most of their strong bond with the moon.
What Sign and Element is the New Moon?
First, to understand the moon and it’s role in Cancer women’s lives, first take note of which sign and element the New Moon is in that month. That sign dominates the overall energies at play during that lunar cycle. For example, a New Moon in Virgo will bring an earthly, self-sacrificing and organized influence that month, while a New Moon in Aries will bring a fiery, pioneering energy.
What Sign and Element is the Moon Passing Through?
Second, the moon passes through each individual zodiac sign every 2 1/2 days. Though the overall energy for the month is associated by the sign of the New Moon, each day brings another energetic pull by the sign it’s currently passing through.
When the moon passes through the fire signs, Cancer women feel that action-oriented energy, making those days a good time to get things done. It is a good time for Cancer women to deal with practical matters when the moon visits the earth signs. When the moon passes through water signs, Cancer women usually feel ultra-sensitive to their surroundings, and have heightened intuition and creativity. With the moon in the air signs, mental processing are heightened, and Cancer women might feel talkative, intellectual and extraverted.
For example, a New Moon in Gemini activates Mercury, which brings airy, mental and social energies to that month. A Gemini Moon visiting Leo activates the Sun’s energy for those two days, bringing in extra passion and vitality to the already mental-oriented month. There are endless combinations of energies that occur every month, and being aware of them ahead of time is an invaluable tool for Cancer women.
Use the Moon to Manifest Desires:
The lunar phase begins with the New Moon. During the New Moon phase, you can’t see the moon, and it’s darkness represents a time for a clean slate and a fresh start. In order to use the moon to manifest your desires, you should prepare your thoughts in order to present them to the universe during the next phase.
Next, the waxing moon brings time to set in motion your intentions for the month. During this phase, challenges might arise that require action in order to maintain your intentions. This is when you should adjust accordingly in time for the Full Moon.
The Full Moon is the most important lunar phase, as it seals your destiny based on the intentions from that month. The last three phases of the moon, as it wanes, is time to be grateful, self-aware, and release your plans so the universe can set them in motion.
Cancer Women may find that using these various methods in tracking the lunar cycles can bring peace, order and stability to their lives. There are plenty of websites and tools available to access the current lunar phases and signs so you can stay aware of them and make the best out of every day!
