New Moon in Cancer


As the celestial bodies align, we find ourselves amidst a powerful celestial event—a New Moon in Cancer. On July 5th at 3:57 PM PST, the Sun and Moon combine in the nurturing sign of Cancer at 14 degrees.  Planets in your chart that are also at the 14-degree point will have the greatest impact in your life.  This cosmic phenomenon carries with it a unique energy, stirring the waters of our emotions and guiding us towards the depths of our soul. However, this particular lunar event is not without its challenges, as it squares the North and South Nodes, creating a cosmic tug-of-war between our past and our future.


Have you wondered about your ability to manifest new beginnings?  Check out a reading with me where we focus on the area of your life that will be impacted with this emotional new beginning by booking a session here.


Cancer: Nurturing the Soul

At its core, Cancer embodies the essence of nurturing and emotional depth. Ruled by the moon, this sensitive and intuitive sign encourages us to delve into the realms of our intuitive gifts, uncovering hidden truths and embracing the vulnerability within. During this New Moon, we are called to nurture ourselves and those around us, fostering a sense of security and belonging. 

Under the influence of a New Moon in Cancer, there is often a strong focus on home and family. This is a time for nurturing our domestic sphere, strengthening bonds with loved ones, and finding solace in the comfort of our homes. We may feel drawn to spend time with family members, reminisce about the past, or engage in activities that evoke feelings of nostalgia.

Additionally, this lunar phase encourages us to explore our subconscious mind and uncover any buried emotions or unresolved issues. It's a favorable time for introspection, self-reflection, and emotional healing. We may find ourselves more attuned to our intuition and guided by our inner wisdom, as we seek to understand our deepest desires and fears.

A New Moon in Cancer also emphasizes the importance of self-care and self-nurturing. It reminds us to prioritize our emotional well-being and to listen to the whispers of our hearts. Whether through practices such as meditation, journaling, or spending time in nature, this lunar phase encourages us to honor our emotions and nurture our souls.

Overall, a New Moon in Cancer is a tender and nurturing time that invites us to connect with our emotions, our loved ones, and the nurturing energy of the universe. It offers us the opportunity to find emotional healing, deepen our bonds with others, and create a sense of security and belonging in our lives. 

The Hands of Fate:  The North and South Node

The North Node guides us to our purpose in this lifetime, the lessons we came her to learn, the gifts we came to unwrap.  The South Node is the path already traveled, and carries with it all the lessons we have already learned along the way.  The perfect balance between the past and future is found through the new beginning that is offered to us at the auspicious new moon in Cancer.  A t-square is created which forms a 90-degree angle to the Sun and Moon from both of the Nodes.  This triangle of pressure is able to escape through the new moon in Cancer.  Ultimately the pressure you feel is there to intuitively guide you to where you need a fresh start.


Supporting Energies:  What’s going on around the New Moon

Several other planets are interacting at the time of the new moon, but are not directly connected to the Sun and Moon. However, they still influence your opportunity for a fresh start.


Jupiter meets in harmony with the Nodes from 9 degrees of Gemini.  This is a fated opportunity that can bring you the information you need to start again.  This can bring a fated blessing, perhaps a conversation with someone, Gemini, that introduces you to this new opportunity.  You will learn and grow much from the experience, so grasp hold of it with both hands, perhaps a chance to write something inspirational will appear.

Mars in Taurus speaks in harmony with Saturn, currently retrograde in the sign of Pisces.  Both of these planets sit at 19 degrees of their signs.  When these two combine they are showing you the plan of action you need to follow, at the perfect pace, for your new beginning to unfold.  Both of these planets are loosely supporting the new moon, as they sit within a 5 degree orb of the new moon energy.  Remember Mars is the gas, and Saturn the brakes, so together these two are setting the pace, be sure you are aligned.


Venus has recently been speaking positively with Mars and Saturn as well, sitting at 22 degrees of Cancer.  As this planet moves forward it is having a difficult conversation with Chiron, the one that teaches us to see and heal our wounds.  There may be a family issue where change is necessary in order to heal.
