New Moon in Cancer July 20, 2020

New Moon in Cancer Part 2!

On Monday July 20, 2020 we have a New Moon in Cancer. The 2’s represent our partnership and relationships. Whenever we have a repeating number this adds intensity to the energy of that day. Your relationships will play an important part in your ability to achieve your goals at home, meaning you shouldn’t expect to go this alone. At the June

Solstice we had our first New Moon in Cancer at the zero-degree mark of Cancer. A very potent energy. Now we have our second New Moon in Cancer at 28 degrees. There is always a surge of energy as we enter and exit the signs, making this another intense new moon.

The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon, making it an emotional and intuitive sign. It represents home, family, motherhood, caring and nurturing. It represents our roots, our foundation, and our ancestors. So, a consecutive new moon in the same sign says we need an additional push to start something new in this area of our life and our chart. You will want to look at what house Cancer is in your chart. Here you can find clues to your childhood, your relationship with your mother, and where the best place for your home is. Go to any of the online sites available like www.astrotheme.com to generate a free chart. You just need your birth date, place and exact birth time.

So, what did you attempt to kick off in June that needs a final push now? That is what you should focus your 10 new moon wishes on. I recommend you write them out, say them into a glass of water, and then drink the water with the belief that your wishes will come true. You can see my previous article for some suggestions from June.

The biggest challenge to this New Moon is the exact opposition to Saturn at 28 degrees of Capricorn. This is my favorite analogy of Gandalf on the bridge with his staff saying, You Shall Not Pass, at least not without a really good plan, hard work and most of all follow through! This wish you have will not just fall in your lap, you have to sit down and put some serious thought into what you want, define it, build a plan to achieve it and put your heart and soul into it. Only then will Saturn give you the thumbs up.

This dance isn’t new. We have been dealing with the opposition between Capricorn and Cancer energy ever since the Nodes entered this space about 18 months ago. But this is the final bow. The big finale, the culmination of all you have been working on. So, did you do the work? If so, expect a reward from Saturn. If you didn’t, you have one last chance to dig deep and push this across the finish line.

Also, at exactly 28 degrees but at really weird angles are the North and South Node. This is your karma and your dharma. You reap what you sow, but how it shows up is going to be strange. It’s a bit like a maze with no map whatsoever. You have absolutely no clue how you are making this happen, and just when you think you got it figured out a wall appears before you, and makes you try again. It’s going to be a month like that. 2 steps forward and 1 step back, but stay diligent and don’t give up. You have been given a second chance here for a reason. Don’t fail the test.

There is supportive energy around you. Neptune and Jupiter are about to meet up again in a sextile. It says the spiritual path will get you where you need to go. There has to be a higher meaning and a bigger purpose to your pursuit. You have to be willing to accept some restrictions in the short term to gain in the long run. Your biggest obstacles in life right now are providing you with the clues you need to succeed. Plus, both Mercury and Venus are moving forward again, that helps you gain some momentum.

I am listing below the impact by house for your sign, but since this is so late in the sign you may want to look at the sign just after yours, or as suggested above create your chart so you know where this energy is showing up for you for sure. These are the areas you can expect some new beginnings, but only if you are willing to do the work.

Houses by sign impacted during the New Moon are:

Aries – 4th house of home and family

Taurus – 3rd house of communication, local community

Gemini – 2nd house of the money you make, self-worth

Cancer – 1st the house of self

Leo – 12th the house of all things hidden

Virgo – 11th the house of networks, friends, benefactors, gains

Libra – 10th house of career and fame

Scorpio – 9th house of higher learning, spirituality, faraway places and foreign travel

Sagittarius – 8th house of intimacy, sex, transformation, other people’s resources

Capricorn – 7th house of serious relationships and business partnerships

Aquarius – 6th house of work and daily routines

Pisces – 5th house of fun, hobbies, and children

Remember to wait until you can see the light of the Moon before you really try to launch your wishes. Next week there is also a very tiny window of personal planets out of shadow from the retrogrades that could be advantageous for you.

Love and Light!
