Cancer New Moon
July 9, 2021: New Moon at Cancer 18°01’, 9:17 pm EDT.
This Cancer New Moon is ushered in by a challenging relationship (a T-square) between Venus and Mars and the on-going Saturn/Uranus square. The Saturn/Uranus square is a reflection of the collective birth process we are currently experiencing. The structures of the past have been dismantled. New societal and personal structures are forming to replace those which no longer work for us.
Many want to believe that this process is complete. It is not. Many are eager to return to a normal that no longer exists. We cannot. We are in-between – in between the death of an old consensus reality and the birth of a new one. Patience is required, combined with an active visioning of what we want to create.
In traditional astrology, Cancer refers to home, family, roots, safety, security, and stability. The theme of this water sign is nurturing. In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Cancer is allied with Nut and Geb, the Divine Parents. Through their love, these two create the protective container of Sky and Earth – our biosphere – which holds all life on our planet.
During this Dark Moon window, spend time envisioning the new reality you want to create for yourself and our planet. Reflect on how you can nurture and protect the new life forming within you.
