New Moon in Cancer – June 23, 2017
The New Moon in Cancer will be exact at 7:30pm PDT tonight. The further east you are may find you sleeping through the partile moment when the Sun and the Moon come together; therefore, if you are going to set any intentions for this new cycle, you may want to do so before going to bed tonight. And since Cancer is a water sign, make sure that whatever you do, include some water. Cancer invented bathing, so have at it!
After all of this fire and air, we must take the expansion of the past month and incorporate it into our inner Being. Cancer is all about what happens behind closed doors. Who are you when no one is looking? What do you do in the privacy of your home to prepare yourself for your day? How to you handle moments when your feelings are hurt? What is your relationship to unforgiveness when it rises up out of your experience? Are you truly putting your needs first so that you can effectively care for others? These are the questions that the New Moon in Cancer is begging us to ask and answer.
The Mystic Rectangle and the Kite Formation that was created by the Sun and Mercury’s passage through Gemini is over. However, it is interesting to me that it is still being held in the cosmos by the placement of Ceres, an asteroid that is named for the Goddess of Grain. She is responsible for making sure that we are well fed. So, while the Sun, Mercury, Mars and the New Moon are asking the same question (how are you fed?) in a deeply personal and intimate way, the expansion of the past few months is still very much with us in an esoteric way (asteroids fall under esoteric astrology, simply meaning more subtle).
We must be feeding ourselves from a high level of consciousness in order to enjoy the benefits of that consciousness. This means everything you are putting into your body, everything you are exposing yourself to through media, social media and outside mental influences, the physical way you move your body through space (some form of exercise or even just basic movement) and the relationships you continue to cultivate with others in your life. This has never been more important for both your personal experience and the state of the Planet. Yes, the stakes are that high.
Pluto and Venus Trine each other as part of this New Moon. I LOVE when these two interact in this way. Pluto rules the Shadow and the Underworld. Venus is our Heart. When they are in harmony, we are comfortable with going into the depths where sometimes we are afraid to pass. You cannot afford to let fear move you these days. This does not mean you are not allowed to be afraid, but you must respond to fearful moments with a practice instead of indulging the sensation. Pluto and Venus in a Trine allows us the comfort to expose our underbelly in a way that Cancer also exposes us to. Though this is a tender lunation, we are courageous and ready to create from an extremely powerful place.
Neptune and Jupiter are still holding fast to this Inconjunct, the fork in the road where we get to use our spiritual connection to release blocks to receiving more Good in our lives. In fact, it is essentially in place till just before the Full Moon that’s just two weeks away, so this passage between New and Full Moon is very much about this practice. And if you don’t have any clarity about what this might be for yourself, pray in this way: “I am ready to have everything come up that needs to come up to be healed in order for me to receive the Good that is coming my way.” Then let the Cancer mansion guide you to a higher level of self-care than perhaps you have allowed yourself in the past. When your own House is in order, then you can attract the most amazing things in the outside world.
