Dear Friends,

What is comfortable and what you need is brought out with this lunation. A time when you know what you need to do. Uranus in Aries the last 6 years has been pushing us to move forward, realize who we are, and reinvent ourselves. This New Moon gets us in touch with where we feel connected or maybe even disconnected. You will know during this lunation. What you need to preserve will be important to you. Where do you belong and who do you belong with? Have you built connections with others that bring a sense of emotional security in your life? Lots of feeling and also confirmations. We need this. We will be more decisive.


THE SIGN CANCER:  The subconscious, the emotions, and instinctual behavior. Intense emotion and great sensitivity. This sign connects us with the past, our roots, family, and the way we were raised. This is the most fertile sign of the zodiac. Time to nurture, protect, and care for the things that we want to bring forth now. It rules the breast and the stomach. The house ruled by Cancer shows where, moved by emotion, you seek out experiences, which secures your Aries identity and builds foundations in your personal life. You protect this area of your life like a mother protecting her young. You function in this area with “gut feeling”.    

THE DWAD:         LEO
This is the sign of integrity, recognition, romance, affection, creativity, and play. When this sign is emphasized, we show kindness and generosity to others. We fall in love, and put our hearts into whatever we are doing. It is a time for ambition, independence, and leadership. People may refuse to recognize their limitations under this influence. This sign can be known for it overly dramatic behavior. It rules the heart and upper spine.                           
There are twelve New Moon’s a year and there is one in each sign. This organizes our year by giving focus to each sign during the course of the year. This helps like a clock or a calendar giving us timing. Once a year we have a New Moon in Cancer and this is the one to set your intentions on home and family. This New Moon takes place close to the Summer Solstice which makes it more powerful in bringing about what you want for long term and enduring values. This will also focus on what lifestyle you want.
The Planet Mercury is also in Cancer at this time. Mercury rules our mind and thinking and it is focused on the home and family as well. Mars is the planet of action, energy, passion and competitiveness. Mars is also in Cancer putting energy into all that we want to do. Mars is favorable to Neptune in Pisces bringing intuition, compassion, and feelings into what we accomplish. Mars is also in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn demanding that we follow through on what needs to be done. This New Moon is in the Cardinal Sign Cancer. Cardinal signs bring action. There are seven out of ten of the planetary energies in Cardinal signs. Lots of action brought about by this New Moon. Saturn in Sagittarius asks that whatever we do we are intelligent and informed. We will learn a lot about where we belong.

This is a symbol of human independence carried to a point of extreme self-examination, here emphasized in a desire for greater participation in the momentary trends and heightened values of the social milieu. There is open invitation to every possibility of personal experience, and a willingness to grasp the least promising opportunity in order to achieve an enlarged significance. The soul accepts every minor modification of itself in order to perfect the channels of its self-expression. The Keyword is DECISION. When positive, the degree is exceptionally effective self-mobilization for the sake of personal ambition, and when negative, wholly inadequate appreciation for the self and its destiny.    “Sabian Symbols” Marc Edmund Jones
