July 15th – New Moon in Cancer

July 15th – New Moon in Cancer

New Moons are a chance at a new beginning, and the New Moon in Cancer is a chance to begin feeling more at home in our lives, our bodies, and our worlds. This New Moon coincides with the revealing of the clearest and closest pictures we’ve ever seen of Pluto, a planet whose opposition figures heavily into the energies surrounding this New Moon. Pluto’s opposition can seed self-doubt, but the New Moon gives us a chance to take those thoughts and turn it into energy to fuel self-improvement and to confront our anxieties.

Astrologer Heather Roan Robbins and High Priestess Thraicie Hawkner discuss in detail the particular energies of this New Moon and how to harness them to help you on your own journey and that of your loved ones. Don’t forget: we’re all in this together!

Check out the latest new moon video below, and then read the rest of the article to get the details on the astrological influences and magical possibilities:

 

With Pluto in opposition during this New Moon, we need to remember keep our homes safe, secure, and happy. Remember that change comes from within, and now is the time to plant the seeds of our personal growth. Don’t let self-doubt take hold and dissuade you from embarking on the changes you want and need.

This can also lead us to confront the darker parts of ourselves, including our fears and our anxieties. We can access these energies in a safe and positive way with the support of our friends, family, and communities. Don’t shut them out; let them help you nourish your roots, and then be sure to be there for them in turn.

As Jupiter and Venus travel through Leo and back again this summer, remember to consciously work at enriching your life and relationships.  As these two bright stars travel, they bring up an abundance of emotion. Share your emotion and your bounty with your loved ones. Give the gift of your presence and your abundance in life so that everyone can grow stronger.

Saturn will square Jupiter and Venus as they enter Leo, and this can causes imbalances in our relationships and professional lives. You may feel an increase in demands at work or feel the bonds of your relationships tested. Use this time to create or deepen your discipline in your art or your work, and note your responsibilities.

Mars is approaching square to Uranus, and this can bring a lot of fiery, passionate energy. Be mindful of your reactions, and don’t let your temper take hold. Particularly sensitive people may become more guarded and apprehensive, so be respectful of those sensitivities. Soothe yourself with meditation, aromatherapy, or deep breathing. Delay your reactions and give things time to process. Now is not the time to make impulsive, rash decisions.

This is a great time for re-invention and re-creation. This New Moon is particularly fertile, so make sure you plant your seed and nurture them well.
