Cancer New Moon

21 Jun

Ruby_slippers.6983122_stdThe New Moon in Cancer puts home and family front and center.  This is the time of year to seed intentions on the domestic scene.  You may enjoy retreating to your nest or creating one and being with those closest to you. The Moon is in her own sign in Cancer, raising emotions and sensitivity, perhaps bringing out your mothering and nurturing traits. You could be feeling moody, nostalgic or connected with the past and things that are familiar.

 

Mercury is close to this New Moon in Cancer and you may want to talk about your feelings or memories of the past; perhaps you visit with your family, talking about old times and telling stories. Maybe your mind is on matters or patterns linked to the past and how it influences your current life’s circumstances.

Mars in Cancer, Jupiter in Libra and Juno in Capricorn are engaged in a tense pattern bringing energy and activity to your headquarters. Maybe you’re involved in home improvement projects and plan to make your place more pleasing.

On another level, this pattern can put a strain on relationships.  Jupiter and Juno have a history, in mythology, they were married but their union was anything but easy. They were constantly challenging and testing each other and had frequent separations.   You may see this reflected in your personal world now.  You may be quick to act on your emotions or have gut reactions, especially if there is a threat to your security, aiming to protect yourself, making moves on instinct and bumping heads with any committed, long term or traditional associations and agreements. Jupiter in the mix inflates the issue. Too many compromises and acting in habitual patterns makes it difficult to remain even keeled.  For the past nine months, Jupiter has been in Libra, teaching us the importance of relationships, cooperation, fair agreements, being inclusive and having relationships and agreements that are meaningful, authentic and in alignment with our truth.  This pattern puts pressure on this issue in order to even it up, level up and restore the balance.

Neptune’s nebulous energies are also pulled into the mix, blurring the lines suggesting that in pursuit of the past, there may be some variations in the way that you recall a relationship or romantic situation.  Perhaps you feel like you’ve been victimized, betrayed, duped or deceived or maybe you felt like spiritual soul mates. All is not clear and there could be an over-idealization of the person or the encounter. You may have to learn to deal with others as they genuinely are and not who you imagine them to be. Or who knows?  Maybe you have a subtle knowing of things happening on other planes or places, in other times, in other spaces.  Everything is possible.

Other good news is that Venus, the goddess of beauty and love is in her own sign of Taurus and makes a favorable connection to Pluto in Capricorn.  This suggests that you can attract your desires for funds, affection or appreciation and eliminate obstacles with ease.  Taurus and Capricorn are both Earth signs, lending stability and implying that your results will be apparent and evident.

New Moon Blessings to All!!

New Moon in Cancer

27 Jun

“Game birds feathering their nest” is the Sabian symbol for this New Moon in Cancer and some of you may be doing just that.  Jupiter has been in Cancer for the past year now putting home, family and domestic life first.  It’s possible you have a new place to call home; maybe you are buying or selling or doing renovations or redecorating and just making your home feel more spacious and comfy.  Some may find that their family is growing or maybe you’re living with an extended family.  This New Moon in Cancer is the perfect time for making plans on the home front.  This New Moon is also in a favorable aspect to Neptune in Pisces so you can dream and imagine it all.  You may be quite inspired today flooded with images at this time or reflecting on the past.  Moods, feelings and emotions may also be heightened and sensitized now.  Your ESP and gut reactions could be very telling.  Water and liquids of all types become important at this time also; oceans, lakes, flooding, etc.  Also oil.   Feelings could also be intense at this New Moon in an opposition to Pluto.  We may feel strongly about something at this time even to the point of obsession.  It may also be that we are being forced to confront how some of our instinctual and self-protective responses may create limitations, often self-imposed and how we might be able to let go of that.   It seems we may be ready for this now. 

This New Moon is also coming just a few days after the opposition between Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries. This aspect is unpredictable and could have brought you something new, exciting and surprising or something angry and unexpected.  These energies are still present at this time.  It may have involved agreements and equality or new groups and friends just as a quick example. 

Jupiter in Cancer forms a T-square to the Nodal Axis in Aries/Libra suggesting that we learn from our battles of the past (inner and outer) and challenges us to seek peace or to find a way to strike a balance in the future. 

Jupiter Rx in Cancer

7 Nov

Today, Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion will retrograde in Cancer until early March 2014.  During this time we may have to turn inward and to test society’s  beliefs, including religious beliefs, philosophies, prejudices, morals and sense of right and wrong against our own when it comes to ideas of family, home, comfort, tradition, race, ethnicity, roots, nurturing, care taking, security, safety and even ‘homeland security’.  It’s a time of inner expansion where you can find out how you feel about those ideas. They’ll need to be measured and tested against your own and you’ll have to judge things for yourself and come to find your own truth. 

A few examples of the manifestation of this energy can be seen in the local news.  This week on the “Today Show” they are highlighting stories of adoption.  There was a segment on the NBC news last night about ‘unconditional parenting’.  There was also a story on the news about people taking issue with prayer at a town board meeting.  This was because the prayer was of one faith while leaving out another board members’ faith.  These are just a few minor examples and you may see how this is relevant in your personal life. 

Cancer New Moon

8 Jul

July 8, 2013

 

Today’s New Moon is in the Nurturing and Motherly sign of Cancer.  Cancer governs over our home, family and our early childhood conditioning.  It is ruled by the Moon and is associated with our moods and feelings as well as our memories of the past. Mercury is close to this New Moon enabling us to communicate some of our feelings and emotions.  This New Moon in Cancer also makes a quincunx to Juno in Aquarius requiring an adjustment or modification in the ways we give and receive support within our relationships. It may be that we can modify some of our own childhood conditioning and to create new and different types of relationships.  We may also become aware of the adjustments we need to make in order for us to have some independence and an identity outside of our relationship, marriage and children.  I think that the trine with Venus in Leo and Uranus in Aries further supports this.  We have a need to be valued for our own special-ness along with our unique individuality.  Venus in Leo is also quincunx Chiron in Pisces possibly suggesting that we may have been blind to our deepest wounds and to learn to appreciate our inner child and that may be the key to our healing and wholeness.  Jupiter the Great Benefactor of the Universe has recently moved into Cancer on June 26 until mid-July 2014.  This is a favorable position for Jupiter as it is supportive of our growth.  We may be expanding or improving our home or families during this time.  Look to your natal chart to find out where Jupiter in Cancer is for you personally.  One of the things I’ve noticed since Jupiter entered Cancer is that a number of people that I know personally have recently moved or are planning to move soon.  This New Moon should help to ‘kick off’ those energies.  Also at the time of this New Moon, Saturn in Scorpio goes direct.  He’s been retrograde since February 18th.  Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces are moving into a Grand Water Trine, an easy flow of the water energies but more on that in a few days. 

 On a VERY personal note:  About a week ago, we had some intense thunderstorms here. As I was running to my house from the car trying not to get soaked, the smell of the summer rain as I entered my house catapulted me into an early childhood memory.  I was reminded of my grandparents’ house when I was a child.  It was a place I loved to be and that I always felt comfortable and safe in. My grandparents were more like parents to me. I suddenly felt sadness with a mix of another feeling that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.  All I know is that I wanted to cry.  And I did for a brief moment.  As I stood in my hallway somewhat surprised by my sudden emotional outburst, I realized what the unfamiliar feeling was.  I was homesick.  I suspect that the feeling was so alien to me because I had never had a real home. As a child, moving around was a regular occurrence and sometimes without any prior notice. I also never felt that sense of belonging to my family. I’ve never felt that I belonged with anyone until I had a child of my own.  This little boy has taught me so much.   In fact, I’ve learned much in this past year.  Since I’ve started a family of my own, I had been struggling because I’ve never had a family model.  I realized I didn’t know how to be a family.   In my mind, I had this fantasy of what a family should be and because of that I felt that I was failing miserably. I was falling short on my own expectations and that made me depressed. It was one of those ‘aha’ moments and once I figured that out, I started to let go, forgive and recover. Awareness is key after all. 

Venus Caught in the Crossfire

11 Jun

June 11-12

Venus, the Goddess of Love tangles in the tense and ongoing square between Uranus and Pluto.  This could upset relationships as family values and our desire for the familiar, comfort and protection or our sense of belonging is confronted by the elimination of things that were long standing or that seemed permanent and set in stone. Whether viewed as something of security or an obstacle, we are challenged to take risks and initiate changes.  Vesta in Cancer is also in quincunx to Juno in Aquarius and it may be that although we are devoted to home and family and hold these things sacred we must acclimate to any shake ups or unrest in relationships.  Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces perfect their trine aspect indicating that although these are constructive changes we’re going through that we may be left feeling disillusioned, lost or confused for the time being. If you’re not feeling this in your love life, look to your pocketbook for these unsettling changes.
