Cancer New Moon

*********** NOURISH ***********

On 4th-5th July we have a New Moon at 12° in the nurturing and sensitive sign of Cancer.

A New Moon is a time for reflecting on the previous Full Moon's revelations. A time to release what is no longer needed, look within for our truth, and set our attentions as the seeds for the cycle ahead. It's our chance to dig under the surface and find what we have access to right now to help us through the next phase.

Cancer is our sense of emotional security. It influences nurturing, gentle intimacy, the home, the family unit, parenting, womanhood, birth, habits and embedded patterns of behaviour, the past, and emotional sensitivity.

Venus will be nearby in Cancer. This lends a soft, romantic, gentle, peaceful, harmonious, loving, and feminine energy to the area of life affected.

Pluto will be sitting opposite the Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Venus. Pluto is power, transformation, dying away, resourcefulness, and all that is hidden.

Whatever we are attracted to and instigate now will have an intense energy behind it. Loyalty, protectiveness, deep meaning, regeneration, and trust issues, will pervade what we want to nurture.
Pluto can create power struggles if we or those around us are living through our Shadow-Selves. It can trigger paranoia, jealousy, spitefulness, and distrust.

With maturity and self-security, we have the opportunity to create shared power, or charge power behind a project. Additionally, Pluto in Capricorn lends a powerful practical no-nonsense approach to transforming what is out-dated and stripping away what is superfluous.

So many planets in water suggests we trust what we feel, trust our intuitions, and yet also remain aware that if we are swimming lost in emotions, we need to focus on grounding ourselves instead.
