New Moon in Cancer 7/17/23


On this day at 11:32 AM PDT the Sun and Moon share the 24th degree of Cancer 56 minutes. It’s time for making plans, goals, wishes you hope to actualize in your life. It’s your opportunity to focus through the Cancer lens, which includes inner peace, loving generously, your home, and the life you’ve led. Like a Mother preparing to give birth, we can look at ourselves with the most sensitivity and nurture that which needs caring for. We can prepare the way through balancing our relationships with those we love and having a kind heart for those we’ve yet to know; so called “strangers.” But through this lens, we see we are all connected, all part of each other. All part of the human family.


This Cardinal Water sign is a leader and inspires us to be just that. Leading like the Mother with an open heart that feels EVERYTHING. This sign is ruled by the Moon which reflects the Sun's light differently every night. Always changing, this luminary rules our emotions and how we feel about what is common to the abstract. This is why it might be most beneficial to spend time alone, reflecting on our ever changing lives with an open mind and heart. We can connect the dots and see why we are doing what we are doing. But is this what we want to continue, or is it time for change? Our behavior is reflective of our inner being, and this grand opportunity is about taking a deep look at what we do and why. Is it anchored in the past, is it part of our family history, does it even belong to us?


This sign provides us the view of ourselves as children and how our early years affected us. We can clearly see cause and effect, what led us to our current notions and why. But do these “memories” still serve us, or keep us stuck in limitation. Our child inside wants protection and will respond if provoked whenever we don’t feel safe. Are these cues still directing our actions unconsciously? Something to think about on this occasion.


The Sun and Moon are sextiled by Uranus at 22 degrees Taurus. This aspect is subtle yet powerful in a beneficial way. Where Cancer is typically traditional and conservative, this aspect inspires the unusual and unorthodox; not to allow tradition, convention, or other people's expectations to dictate how you are going to live your life. You’ll crave freedom, adventure, excitement, and discovery, and will not fear change. This aspect to the Moon helps us be uninhibited and spontaneous. You’ll love to feel free and unfettered.


The Sun and Moon are trine Neptune at 27 degrees Pisces. We have a heightened awareness, are more imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful, or magical. You’ll be attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, music, and mysticism. Your spiritual values will color your whole perspective and approach to life. This aspect to the Moon directs our attention to the beauty and harmony of our surroundings, and will have a very powerful effect on our emotions. Discord or dissonance will be even more upsetting than usual. Gentle, kind hearted, and peace-loving, you will give or sacrifice much in order to avoid a fight and to "make everyone happy". The key here is not to forget about the self and its needs and values.


So if possible, I suggest entering the water medium to meditate; either through swimming, bathing, or soaking in order to deep dive into this medium and reap the benefits it provides. In this element we are given the light and love of clarity. Our bodies are 55-60% water, so we can imagine we are back in the womb, preparing ourselves for this life to come. Dream as a child would, without fear, just what you hope to be and accomplish in this life, which is our gift. Even though life gets tough and puts us through the learning and changes, know you have designed this for yourself. You and guidance before your birth chose this path for yourself, in order to fill out your “dance card.” To experience what is needed to make us whole, complete and more like the Great Spirit, however you view this.


So as this sign indicates, be kind to yourself first. Pray for yourself first in order to be all that you can possibly be. Teach others, like the Mother does, with caring and an open heart for what is to come. Be at peace with the here and now, and look to what is still left to be done in order to grow. Become authentically you!
