new moon in cancer

june 23, 2017

On June 23, 2017, at 8:30pm MDT, there will be a New Moon in the sign of Cancer, 2 degrees, 47 minutes.

Cancer is the Mother, the one who brings life. During the New Moon, the night is dark, mysterious, and holds the emptiness where something begins to form, to emerge, with the desire to come into the world.  The New Moon represents creation, and the opportunity to set our intentions and begin…..

The Moon rules the sign of Cancer giving this New Moon extra emotional nuance, depth, and expression. The heart can feel shy, and express tenderly, but there is also the potential for touchy emotions and moods that swing, creating difficulty in overall communication and relationships.

Cancer is a cardinal water sign and naturally motivated to create something new. Oriented to home and family, safety and comfort, Cancer is forgiving, sensitive and empathetic, with a deep intuition. Cancer is the healer, the one who nurtures others so easily, yet many times finds it difficult to self-nurture.

Transiting Mercury in Cancer sits close to the New Moon providing access to our inner thoughts concerning what we desire, what we need. Mars also in Cancer brings the fortitude, courage, and motivation to act upon the thoughts and feelings that can activate a starting point.

At this New Moon I hope you can find some quiet time to understand your feelings. Something is calling you. Something that needs to be recognized and nurtured, providing growth, new life.  Can you open your heart and allow vulnerability enough to claim what you really need? This isn’t always the easiest thing to do. However, this is a good time to explore what may be swirling around deep inside of you, a desire that given half a chance, could be another step of growth within your life. A new and needed beginning, that could result in greater healing and happiness, for yourself and others.
