New Moon in Cancer

July 1st  will bring us a New Moon in Cancer, accompanied by a partial Solar Eclipse.  In astrology, Eclipses speed up issues and situations in our personal lives and demand that we deal with them.  They trigger change.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon, which makes this New Moon a powerful one. A Solar Eclipse in Cancer generates sensitivity and feeling

The New Moon always signals a time of new beginnings, new cycles, rebirth.  The focus here will be on Cancer related issues such as home, family, our sense of emotional security and belonging.  On a personal level, we might feel a bit more insecure than usual.  As a result, one might have the tendency to be more sensitive and irritable. This watery Moon may also bring up memories of our childhood, and you may find yourself delving deep into your personal history.  And, since Cancer is the sign of motherhood, you may feel a longing to return to a childlike state and be cared for.  This Cancer New Moon provides an opportunity to resolve familial wounds.

 You may also find that your current home is much more meaningful to you at this time.  And, if you are someone who is always on the go, perhaps you may find yourself wanting to hang out at home during this New Moon, finding yourself drawn to deal with family responsibilities. 

Think about everything that is going on in your life right now? Is there anything connected with the sign of Cancer that has become  a major focus in your life?  Home?  Family?  Child care?  Motherhood?  Caretaking?

uperstitions in connection with the appearance of the Moon are numerous; it generally presides over lovers' wishes. In Devonshire, the young people, as soon as they see the first new moon after Midsummer, go to a stile, turn their backs to it, and say:

All hail, new moon, all hail to thee!
I pray thee, good moon, reveal to me
This night who shall my true lore be;
Who is he, and what he wears,
And what he does all months and years.
