July is here and we welcome energetic, bright, and summery energy. Starting from Cancer and then moving into Leo, we will be moving from the watery to the fiery, from emotion to action. This shift is one that is highly vibrational, and its effects can be felt everywhere.

The first New Moon finds us on the 10th, in the sign of Cancer. This moon wants us to really dig deep and shed that shell that we may have been hiding in. Because Cancer is a sign ruled by the moon, it is supercharged with lunar vibrations while in it’s home sign.

On July 24th, we have a Full Moon in Aquarius. The air element that Aquarius brings helps round out the fire and water from the rest of the month, bringing some breathy movement to heavier energies. This Full Moon will require us to dream, speak, and act full out – not skimping on any part of our life that we truly desire to bring in.

July moons and crystal guidance

July New Moon + Crystal Guidance

Any moon phase in Cancer is sure to be a beautiful, albeit powerful one. The New Moon in Cancer on July 10th will be no different. The refreshing New Moon energy is super charged with Cancerian emotion and depth. This moon wants us to emerge and shed everything that is no longer working for us and hone in on everything that rings true to our soul. There is no longer room to manifest the things that only sustain us in the short term, we are calling in the real deal of life here.

The shedding will also require introspection, and a time of rest and reflection to make sure that we can really integrate the realizations that we are having in this season. Do not over extend or over promise yourself and your presence. Take the time to feel, journal, move through, and experience the true self that you can now let through.

July Full Moon + Crystal Guidance

Just after the sun moves into the sign of Leo, we have a Full Moon in Aquarius on July 24th. Often thought of as a water sign, Aquarius is actually an air sign – and very much so. Aquarius is where we can let our freak flag fly. It breaks us out of our molds and wants us to explore the far reaches of what we think is possible.

This moon corresponds so beautifully with the New Moon earlier in the month, as it is the final push out of that Cancerian shell that we have been hiding ourselves in. It is the permission to claim what desires are rightfully ours, and to live in the light again. Rebel a little bit, talk to more people, and extend your connections and your opportunities to continue to move forward.
