New Moon in Cancer July 20th 10:32 am PDT Sabian Symbol “ A Woman Reading Tea Leaves”
Happy New Moon! This is the second New Moon in Cancer in a series bookending the season, but the good news is It’s NOT an eclipse!! A New Moon is always optimal for setting intentions, getting out of a rut and planting seeds for the future. The Moon, from our earthly view- is growing in strength and appearance. This brings us the energetic imprint of a new lunar cycle.
We have a bit of a showdown in our Lunations Chart, with bunches of energy in Aries, Capricorn and Cancer. There is a loose T -square aspect with Saturn opposing our Sun and Moon and then squaring Eris, the Asteroid Goddess of Discord in Aries. Mars in Aries conjuncts Chiron Retrograde then squares Mercury.
It’s likely we may feel a little wounded and possibly angry- it’s true we have been hurt, but it is important to not act out ( Mars) aggressively. Look to Mars's complementary opposition to Juno in Libra the goddess of contracts and partnerships for help.
Peace and Love, mediating with both sides in any situation will be helpful.
Take note that Moon may be “restrained” by an exact opposition with Saturn, Pluto, Jupiter, Pallas Athene and Saturn in Capricorn- all in retrograde position which can “relax” their powers a bit, providing a pause in a time of difficulty. The past is highlighted with all these bodies Retrograde in Capricorn. The focus is on the need to leave old paradigms behind as we re-birth areas of life deeply ancestral or cultural. We are continuing the process of looking behind us collectively, into the past for revision, for review in order to repair and re-envision of our future. Look also to an opportunity to connect with messages or divined information just before and during the New Moon. For some, this may be their “will within” the higher self or inner guide. Regardless, this is an optimal Moon for any divination work, so get out your tools and give or receive a reading now.
It’s also essential to keep developing inner security, to settle in for a time to your home base wherever you are). Within your psyche and will is strength. A prevailing trust in the process of change is important, we are holding space for a great re- birth and must do the work of societal mid-wifery with intention: knowing our power, we contribute to the world everything that is us; our behavior and consciousness, all our actions and re-action our intention, our vision and dreams.
We are what we have been waiting for- let us contribute to the upcoming great cultural mutation by allowing what needs to go, while holding our vision and hope for the future like a great torch always in our minds.
Blessing, Strength and Support, Michelle
