Are you feeling uninspired when it comes to your goals and manifestation skills? Ready to amplify your power to attract everything you want in your life? Then it’s time to perk up and let your intuition reign because this week brings just the energy you need to bring your focus back to the center and manifest the life of your dreams.

There are two major transits that set the stage this week, starting with a mystical New Moon in the intuitive, creative sign of Cancer.

The New Moon occurs each month, and it’s the most productive time of the month to focus on manifesting everything you want. As that New Moon energies draw those desires towards you – you can often begin to see the results of your New Moon manifestations by the time the Full Moon comes around.

Because this New Moon is in Cancer, there will be a focus on friends, family, your sacred space, intuition, and emotions. These themes may crop up when practicing your manifesting ritual, and your intuition will guide you toward attracting the things you truly want, rather than things you’ve only been convinced you want by others.

Conversations take on a deeper, more spiritual tone when Mercury – the planet of communication and information – moves into mystical Cancer on July 11th.

While Mercury in Gemini encouraged quick-witted conversations with frequent changes in subject and tone, Mercury in Cancer asks us to form deeper bonds by communicating with personal, compassionate energy.

We’re also right in the middle of Cancer season, meaning that these themes will be amplified even higher by the Sun’s current transit through Cancer. That’s a lot of deep, spiritual, intuitive, and emotional energy swirling around and helping us feel more connected.

July 5 - July 11 is a Week to Follow Your Intuition & Connect to Those Around You

This sensitive and spiritual Cancer energy brings intense and flowing all around us this week. If you use it wisely, you can enter the next week with a sense of hope, spiritual connection, and trust in the Universe (and all the abundance it plans to bless you with.)

It’s time to lean in, manifest, and express those emotions that will surely be edging their way towards the surface.

Use this New Moon to manifest your goals and Mercury in Cancer to deepen your conversations. This sense of connection with friends, family, and the Universe itself is magical – use it wisely!

If you’re feeling disconnected, a personalized astrological reading can help you find your center and open your heart.
