Moon enters Cancer, 16 July 8:31pm EDT to 19 July 6:13am EDT
The virtues of imagination, parenthood, and sensitivity are natural gifts of a Moon in Cancer. Instincts are well developed and active- as strong influences from our environments shape our feelings during this passage. The collective gravitates to a nurturing quality -urged to take care of whatever home and family needs are about- as time in the kitchen is equally favored. Romantic idealizations, reliving experiences and cherishing moments can all cozy up together as our Lunar Lady feels absolutely protected when visiting with the familiarity of The Crab.
New Moon, 19 July, 12:24am EDT, 26 degrees Cancer
As souls we can take this opportunity to bring forth what needs to now initiate in our lives- with emotion and spirit marking our moves. Take the next 2 weeks to plant those seeds that will, with proper intention, reap a fantastic harvest in the life further down the road. Visualize a gathering force as the Moon will travel from 26 degrees Cancer to where 10 degrees Aquarius’s energy falls within the birth chart. Even as Mercury is offering up review in Leo, this half of your Zodiac Pie is ready for a fresh emotional feel to come into play throughout 01 August.
For the Collective
While the new ideally wants to pour out from the Cancer area of our lives, we are also seeing an interesting request for structure from Saturn who, is currently finishing up his journey at 23 degrees Libra which presents a “squaring off” energy of our lives. As Saturn has brought forth his karmic changes in his slow moving process here since the fall of 2010, the dynamic of this close square between our New Moon/Sun and Saturn grants an important request. Rather than choosing to feel cornered as a square can create, these initiating energies here are able to work to bring a new foundation to all our Karmic Adjustor has asked for you to be ultimately responsible to in the last two years.
One more point of Saturn’s influence to note is the 26 degree point upon which this months’ New Moon falls, which is also guided by this planet through its’ singular 8 energy. The 26 represents the Chaldean’s understanding via numerology of Partnerships which powerfully requests to adhere to compassion and unselfishness when dealing with any one-on-one relationship. As this New Moon begins in the sign of emotion and pure sensation, the 26 also requires the presence of patience in dealing with them, and the others we are learning through our experiences from. We can find the wisdom that wishes to be shown to us here when we take a little pause in solitude under this lunation, opening up the channel of stability to unfold.

For the collective horoscope, again we offer some simple advice for every sign from the outer vantage point. Remember, if you know your Rising Sign (Ascendant), read that passage too, for it typically will apply to your personal charts’ advice when it is placed in the earlier degree points. Always remember, it is full mathematical analysis of the individual birth chart that truly indicates how the current planetary energies are uniquely affecting you.
Aries: Time for the new within the home, where “I Nurture.” While it may be where “I Relate” is trying to cause a rub- there is a new understanding that you can gain from the relationships within your family life. Once you allow this energy to emerge, solidarity between these two areas magically unfolds. Devote your curiosities to the family life and nest egg in the next two weeks, and watch doors open wide. Those flashes of déjà vu experiences speak wisdom to you now.
Taurus: Bring on those new ideas and ways of how “I Communicate.” Your energies from where “I Serve” have been in a slow process of change, and this now offers the opportunity to improve upon healthy channels of routine for the mental state to flow from. Siblings and neighbors may request your attention. Get those feelers out there if you haven’t sought to publish what is churning from your mind, for it’s time to teach everyone now what you know about patience.
Gemini: This lunation will bring some new possessions into your sense of what “I Have.” Time to change up the values to ones you will cherish, allowing a fresh sense of security to find you. Your earning power sees some stimulation, which is urging to be formed from where “I Create.” Don’t fret nor worry in your logical mind about why it seemingly has taken so long- go with the gut here. Remember who won the race, it was the tortoise in gratitude not the unaware hare.
Cancer: The spotlight of the new shines on you this month Dear Crab! It’s time for those approaches and the mask you wear to the world to look very different, all of your sense of “I Am.” Place plenty of focus on you before you naturally go out to where “I Nurture.” Should any distractions surface from the home and family life, keep in mind that all of the adaptation you’ve been through here since 2010, now formulates a true foundation that you can cozy up to.
Leo: Examining the deepest layers within your subconscious as these reveal new mysteries to you now where “I Process.” The truest sense of your soul is ready to bloom. Dreams will have a plenty to say, so be sure to write them down. A lovely change is initiating within your inner world, which takes you off the stage for a pass. Yet, this is merely looking to see how very much the ways where “I Communicate” have grown into a real stability upon which you now can rely.
Virgo: New friends and groups are to be of service to where “I Socialize.” Accept that invitation you will receive, as this is meant to start a very beneficial initiation. Hopes, wishes and dreams flourish now -keep these in the best intentions- as the Universe is completely ready to aid you in manifesting your requests. The new here is ready to work with all the learning from experience in the past two years with the entire value of what “I Have” and how you now intelligently earn it.
Libra: The career and public life sees a new path where “I Structure.” If your Scales have seemed tipped too much in your soul’s sense of “I Am,” you will be feeling your balance back. It’s been some hard work since 2010, but the world now sees you take in greater understanding in your first impressions that you ever did before. As you have more care and concern about what you do- go now and promote your work, as you equally note a fresh attitude towards authority.
Scorpio: New philosophies and spiritual quests are now here where “I Believe.” You’re no stranger to surrendering to regeneration, so rest assured this exciting energy will serve you in mysterious ways if you let in the solitude request from where “I Process.” Educational pursuits are favored to find new ways to learn. Embark upon those foreign travel adventures as well. Even if you cannot get the stamp on your passport, where you can travel to telepathically is fun.
Sagittarius: Investments aim to a more open place, but watch Mercury’s request to not sign important documents. Word about other people’s money benefits and flows towards you easily, which looks to communicate to you from where “I Socialize” creating structure where “I Transform.” Gain scope of everything surrounding you as a regenerative force intensely unfolds. A friend may wish to get intimate, but listen to the sensible one who speaks from experience.
Capricorn: It’s a journey not a destination in how your partnerships exist in your life where “I Relate.” Whatever communications misunderstandings our Messenger may be throwing your way, there is a new sense now that asks to feel good about them. You are in such a wonderful place of regeneration in your life, and while you have had to be patient in your career where “I Structure” for what seems like forever, recognize how much knowledge you’ve still gained.
Aquarius: You surely love to bring new life to things, so freshen up your health, personal habits, and routines where “I Serve.” Adaptation is in order within your working environment so don’t remain in resistance. Been thinking about a new pet? Someone at the shelter may be waiting for you. A lot has felt restricted since 2010 where “I Believe” if you weren’t responsible to it, but now, it is time to let in a fixed feel that your more patience philosophies really do serve you best.
Pisces: Your intuition senses it: unleash that vivid imagination upon a project that will keep you swimming in ultimately expressing yourself where “I Create.” Initiations flow from your lovely sensitivity, and your children may also require your immediate focus. A love affair may get spicy. Taking your own or other people’s wealth to invest in what is streaming creatively, for this can enable a true bond to where “I Transform.” Just don’t sign the papers under Mercury’s review.
