Today, the Waning Crescent Moon is in Cancer, a zodiac sign in which the Moon feels most comfortable. It represents home, nurturing, quiet, and the slow enveloping of a warm embrace. In manifesting, as with the Moon, it’s not just about action, but in the moments you practice patience as you hold space for the universe to take hold of what you have sent out and help bring it to fruition.  

The Moon in Cancer can often give you a desire to be a homebody — to cancel plans, crave more sleep, enjoy your home space, and cook nutritious meals. It’s the idea of returning to your home and the home within yourself—the comfortable room of just being and feeling at ease and where you are.  


A deep trust exists within the energy of the Waning Crescent Moon in Cancer as you are guided to believe that everything you have set in motion is already in process. By taking a rest in your manifesting, focusing on self-care your personal needs, and simply holding the vibration of your intention, you balance your manifesting rituals and your life.  


You can perform your rituals at any time of the day, though in the evening hours, the Waning Crescent energy of the Cancer Moon will be most potent.

Think of anointing yourself with the essential oils of grapefruit, lavender, or rosewood to embody the elements of this sensitive water sign, along with adorning your temple with rose quartz, laborite, or green fluorite.

Whether in your rituals, teas, or even in preparing meals, consider incorporating the herbs of sage, bay leaves, and lemon balm, which also symbolize the zodiac sign of Cancer, to tune into this patient state of trusting the universe is always working on your behalf – even in moments of inaction.
