On July 20th at 1:32 pm EDT, we will experience the second New Moon this year in the sign of Cancer. The first occurred on June 21st, the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere, and was a Solar Eclipse and happened on the very first degree of the sign. That Solstice New Moon brought us to the place where we were recognizing that certain things needed to change and fall away in the way that we treat or communicate with those we care about or those around us in our community. It became clear that a “new normal” was necessary in order for our lives to move forward in a healthier, more evolved way, and I’m not just talking about the larger social picture, but also in our individual, more personal lives.
Today’s New Moon in Cancer is happening at the end of the sign on the 29th degree precisely opposing Saturn at the 29th degree of Capricorn, and has connections to the Nodal Axis which represents where we’re coming from and where we should be headed. This is such an incredibly karmic setup! We are being asked to recognize that change is needed last month. I encourage you to take a moment to really ground into this moment because if you are wise, you are about to embark on the path of your destiny! Perhaps you came up with a plan for a big change in some area in your life last month but this month you realize that it needs tweaking or restructuring to truly be the transformative force that you were meant to be.
Some questions to ask yourself during this New Moon in Cancer to help you apply these energies to your own life might be:
How can I really apply my wisdom and experience to make what I’m working on even better?
Which steps do I feel passionate about taking?
What unique, innovative, or technological ideas can I come up with to help keep us connected, take care of my family, and take care of and balance all of my responsibilities?
Whom can I call on for emotional or financial support to help me work through this or figure it out?
Look down at the path you’re on and think about what you see….is the whole path laid out and mapped for you or can you only see a few steps ahead? Does it feel like just another day or are you excited for a new adventure? This is the difference between fate and destiny…which path will you choose on this rare second New Moon in Cancer?
