Self Care Sunday: New Moon in Cancer Edition

Is is just me or did the last week fly by?!? I feel like it was just yesterday I was sitting down encouraging you all to be in the house getting up close and personal with yourselves, lol.

At any rate, it’s another beautiful Sunday and its time to get into some good ole self care.

How are you coping with the effects of the new moon in Cancer?

I’ve spoken with a few friends over the past few days about how the new moon has been affecting them and I have received a resounding “In my feelings, bih!” Sorry guys, lol. I’ve heard stories of existential crises, extreme anger, finding balance, reminiscence, overjoyed with love, and even fatigue.

The new moon snapped my ass up too, so don’t feel like you’re alone. For me, the new moon chilling in emo ass cancer hit me in my relationship feels. For the past few days all I can think about is wanting to be cuddled up with someone fine ass daughter, eating junk food, and vibing out. Instead, the dog and I have been bingeing on chips and re-runs of Bob’s Burger’s. I’ve been feeling every bit of Tina’s angst about when Jimmy Jr. is finally going to return her love offerings, lol. Tragic. I know.

With the general consensus being everyone is in their feelings, in one form or another, I have decided to take on the duty of presenting you all with some tips and tricks to help us through the hump.

How to soothe those Drake-like emotions during the moon’s stripper stroll through Cancer:

Air signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius:

As an air sign myself, I can vouch for us being an expressive sort that is all too often wrapped up in the beauty of all things. We are the inventors of the term F.O.M.O. We are also the busiest group of people in the cosmos. When we met the internet for the first time, we felt like we were issued a personal challenge to out capacity the wealth of knowledge available through artificial intelligence.

No doubt the effects of cancer season being heightened by the new moon’s presence has us a bit stir crazy and all backed up with energy and information. During this new moon we should try to do the opposite of what we normally subject ourselves to. Instead of trying to run around and do everything, know everything, and be everything for everyone, we should use this time to delegate and get to simple pleasures that benefit ourselves. Things like journaling to get those millions of thoughts out of our heads, dancing away that nervous anxious energy, logging off the internet and getting into some form of expressive creativity void of expectation on the outcome, spending time in nature, grounding, stargazing, etc., will do wonders to improve and stabilize our moods and thoughts.

Water Signs – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces:

You guys are quite possibly the most intuitive, emotionally connected, empathic group in the zodiac. Right now, you guys are in your element to the 100th power. Your normal levels of communication and connection to spirit are amplified and positively radiating.

This surge can feel overwhelming if you are trying to bury all that energy inside yourself. As very private people, you often take on other people’s concerns while disregarding your own. To find some relief, call a trusted friend and confide in them about how you’re feeling, take a spiritual bath, fuck, go for a swim, sit next to or get into the ocean, indulge yourself in spiritual practices like tarot reading, oracle divination, pendulums, etc. Your connection to spirit is wide open and you are highly encouraged to open yourself up to the wealth of information and guidance available to you at this time.

Earth Signs – Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus:

Ever in control of all aspects of your life, I am sure you guys are looking around trying to figure out what a feeling is and why you, or the people around you, are suddenly flooded with them. Sure you know, want, and enjoy feelings but they are not your preference lol. Black and white, planning, goals, and strategy are the ways to get your juices flowing.

If the surge of emotions flooding your radar gets to be too much, might I suggest some creature comforts to redirect your focus and get you re-grounded?

Is it time to make a new vision board, budget, update your family calendar, de-clutter your space? Redirecting your thoughts from the uber emotional people in your orbit who may be draining you with their woe is me attitude on seemingly mundane issues, to the tasks you truly find exciting, should help relieve the burden you may be feeling. For a lot of you guys, I’m sure all of the things I’ve listed here to help you find some peace have already been completed because you guys are always on your shit. If that’s the case, you could also go for a run or play some board games with equally brilliant people who aren’t worried about getting bogged down with silly things like emotions.

Fire Signs – Leo, Aries, Sagittarius:

Being magnificent all of the time is a job you perform without complaint, daily. Still. All of that greatness must get exhausting from time to time. The expectation to always be “on” certainly can weigh on you. I know if you were talking to anyone else but me about this, you’d never admit that you are human like the rest of us and making it look easy is a lot harder than most people can appreciate. With the new moon magnifying your emotions, you may find that you are showing more of those pesky impatient, aggressive, and impulsive behaviors that you try so hard to pretend don’t exist within yourself.

Take some time to give yourself permission to not be in the spotlight and in control of everything. When a person is as spectacular of a human specimen as you are, your work, responsibilities, and adoring fans would benefit from the opportunity to miss you a little bit. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? Spend some time doing things that make you feel good about yourself. Visit a spa, go for a walk in your favorite scenic part of the city, get dressed and go dancing, try a solo workout, and if all of those seem too close to performing, you can always go take a good long nap or two. It’s a hard job giving the rest of us constant inspiration and you deserve a break just like the rest of us. We don’t know how we will do it, but we will find a way to keep ourselves busy until you return to show us the new levels of excellence we should all be striving to reach.

With all these raging emotions flying around I pray I didn’t offend anyone with my light roast of the zodiac elements. If I did, you’re more than welcome to let off some of that energy in the comments below. I get it. Shits tense right now, lol.
