New Moon in Cancer: Fresh Opportunities!

New Moon in Cancer: Fresh Opportunities!

A new moon in domestic Cancer on July 4th 2016 brings fresh opportunities for a fruitful new start. After months of stalemate, anger and resentment (that was Mars retrograde in Scorpio), this new moon finally gives you the green light to get unstuck. Cancer turns your attention to hearth and home and to the actions you need to take to secure your base. This is a time for baby steps, to plant fresh seeds and nurture them with love. 

The Cancer New Moon is trine Neptune in Pisces, activating the Saturn-Neptune square, which is the aspect in the skies responsible for so much disillusionment and disappointment in 2016. The new moon signals a fresh chance to apply your creative imagination to the seemingly intractable problems you are faced with. This nurturing moon can help you solve your conundrum in a life-giving (rather than life-denying) way. As Sun and Moon meet, they also oppose Pluto in Capricorn, which brings a sense of urgency: it may feel as if you’re pushing against great odds or trying to move forward under duress. You may feel as if your very life hangs in the balance. But Sun and Moon also sextile Jupiter in Virgo, harmonising with the lucky Jupiter-Pluto trine, and conjunct Venus in Cancer and Mercury in Cancer. These are positive aspects that provide you with ample opportunity, ideas and charm - enough to help you push through any obstacle. So, good luck and Happy New Beginnings!
