Hello again. Have you had enough of the carnival atmosphere yet? Maybe some of you like the crazed atmosphere of the world situation. You know what, it stinks. If I would have written this the other day when I had a major cathartic type of realization, I could have won the Pulitzer Prize (or the opposite). Just joking. Wherever you live I hope you are having clear days with puffy clouds and no chemsoup skies. I am so tired of the humidity and the foul air, I want to scream. That wouldn’t be a good thing since my neighbors will complain. So, Egypt has been in an uproar, Snowden is hanging in the shadows somewhere, and Syria is being blasted. Floods are overtaking various parts of this country and India and many other places. Fires ravage the western US. Yes, the world is on the brink. It is beyond 1984. Does anyone out there choose to wake up and put an end to the darkness? And since the New Moon is a water sign…is that the next area of our lives that will be taken over completely? I have come from a positive place most of the time in my life and sometimes when I see what is going on, if it is beginning to be difficult for me to stay in that place, then I wonder how it is for those who have no jobs, little food and minimal funds with which to do anything. Vent done! Onward to the watery New Moon.
The NEW MOON in CANCER occurs on Monday, July 8, 2013, at 3:14am EDT,16 degrees 18’ and is all about family and relationships and replenishing your emotional waves. Sun in Cancer is moody, imaginative, sensuous, intuitive, self-absorbed and nurturing. But don’t cross them because they will hold a grudge until the end of time. They need space when they are creating and believe me they have movies going in their heads most of the time. This SUN/MOON Cancer influence is all about reaching within and regrouping and maybe you will come up with a new creative venture or a new beginning in whatever house it is located in your chart. The Crab has a hard time letting go of anything. But just imagine at one time centuries ago, Cancer was ruled by the Scarab Beetle. That would certainly create a different image of how this sign is represented. Anyway, the Crab loves hiding away at times and this may be a time when depending on how your life is, you may find time to just keep out the world’s noise and take time for you. Or you may just want to rekindle an old relationship within the family or with someone who is like family. There are several people I know who have this conjunct their SUN in Cancer and I have it opposite my Moon in Capricorn. New ways to do things and a change in how to approach others. Good for abundance and success. It is possible to start new ventures or just establish secure foundations for the future.
There are exceptional aspects for healing within now. What do you need to heal within your life? What emotions are still clouding your vision keeping you from taking that leap? And that leap will come but not before you clear out those cobwebs from the past and dig deep for release and healing. I have noticed that for me it is about values and self-worth so I am ready to regenerate this area of my life so I can clear out any root issues which may keep me from freely moving forward. I now am focusing on my talents and skills which will help to create more money for me. Once I can do this, healing can take place. It is time to set the intention for whatever area of your life that is being influenced. You will know by meditating even if your don’t have access to your chart at this time.
There is still a grand trine (positive) with Saturn in Scorpio, Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Cancer. This will continue to affect you but has no connection to the NEW MOON in Cancer. Jupiter has arrived in Cancer about a week ago and will be there for a year. What this means is that family situations, MONEY/abundance, home, and security will be expansive for the next year and with the New Moon giving it a big jump start, new beginnings can take place. What are you going to do that is done in a new way? How will you radically change your life to better it? This is important to remember in the next months. That new idea, as crazy as it may be, can take you to a new level of success in a blink of the eye. Take advantage of the good aspects that are here right now and put that intention out there. Chiron trining the NEW MOON in Cancer may bring up old issues to be healed. Open to it. Continue to come from your heart and reach deep within for your love, so nurturing can take place. And this is also a time when sexuality is more important. And if you have no partner, then please use that passion to develop new ideas or creations to share with everyone.
Keep in mind with Mercury retrograding through Cancer you need to express your feelings and regenerate the communication with others which has fallen by the wayside. No signing important documents until Mercury goes direct later in the month. I see that Sphinx asteroid is also near the NEW MOON in Cancer. The time has come to all of you to meet your challenges upfront instead of running and hiding like many of those with Cancer Sun or Moon do. Sphinx will help you take command and move forward otherwise you will continue to be stuck in your limited belief patterns. Take advantage of this opportunity. And don’t forget there is still a difficult aspect between Pluto and Uranus which is affecting the NEW MOON in Cancer and this will continue to stir up your emotions.
All of you who have planets in Cancer from 12 degrees to 20 degrees will be affected most intensely. Also any planets at the same degrees in Aries, Libra and Capricorn will be influenced.
Watch for floods wherever you are in the next month after this New Moon and once Jupiter joins that New Moon point. Jupiter is about expansion and since it is in a water sign that will be the norm in the coming months.
Thank you all for reading and your support. May your blessings be many at the NEW MOON in CANCER. Until again. Love, Jan
