New Moon in Cancer
July 23, 2017

Image: Upsplash

By Kim Lovelace

The New Moon begins in Cancer on the 23rd July 2017 at 10:45 GMT and in New York at 05:45 EDT.

The Moon in Cancer is in her sign of rulership which deepens and intensifies her emotions. It is important that the Cancer Moon has a home that provides the nurture and security she needs for her emotional well being. A place that she can retreat to when the going gets tough. This Moon is prone to adverse mood swings and can take offence to any slight and will either comfort eat or escape into her fantasy world to sooth her emotional wounds.

Meditations, but ones that are focused and directed will more beneficial to the Moon in Cancer as she tends to slip off into trance, this method will help to keep her grounded and in control.

The Cancer Moon suffers a sluggish digestion system and liver problems due to her poor eating habits and is prone to Anaemia; Vitamin C deficiency is likely to be the cause. Her vulnerable areas are her head and chest and stomach and when she is run down will suffer from head and chest colds which leaves mucus in her stomach. Vitamin C will be of great benefit to the Moon in Cancer, as well as using 'colour therapy' in her daily life; especially colours associated with the Solar Plexus, Heart Chakra and Crown Chakra.

The aspects to our New Moon are Aggressive, Assertive and Intense as Mars and Uranus cause a lot of tension within our intimate relationships or with work colleagues. Feelings are intense, erratic and dark as resentment and mistrust surface in eruptive ways. The urge to break free of restricting situations will be overwhelming, we must beware of acting without thinking, or being overly neglectful of our responsibilities. Only self discipline and inner wisdom can help us to direct this energy into constructiveness.

Emotional frustrations and financial hardships are likely to be the theme this New Moon as unhappy relationships or poor working conditions become unbearable and overwhelming. Depression, deprivation and heavy responsibilities reach their breaking point.

The general feeling will be 'enough is enough'. However there is a danger of us acting too impulsively without any consideration for the consequences or how other people will be affected by our actions. We must direct this erratic and dominating energy wisely. We must also be prepared to let go of situations that do not serve our highest good. Inner strength and self reflection will be needed as we can easily disconnect from our hearts.

The Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius, is casting her shadow of truth and her fear of meaningless. Some of us could find ourselves in a very dark place this New Moon as our trust and loyalty is severely tested and pushed beyond reasonable limits. We must be careful of not becoming our own worst enemy.

For this New Moon I suggest that we Meditate on all our Chakra Points, especially the Solar Plexus, Heart and Root Chakras. Nature walks, deep breathing techniques and prayer/chants are a must. Burn a lilac candle and Lavender or Rose incense.

Surround yourself with bright uplifting colours and use the affirmation:

I am sure of my inner knowing and trust in the process of life. Love is abundant in my world.

13-sign, 13-house delineation of the New Moon in Cancer

New Moon in Cancer:
Khepera, the Scarab

By Femi Ibim

Hi everyone! If you’ve been following my 13 sign astrology info, then you know this New Moon is in the constellation of Cancer, not Leo. Check your google sky map apps! Verify the accuracy of sidereal and 13 sign astrology for yourselves. This is a very important distinction right here, to be on actual star placements. The difference between Cancer and Leo is massive! Like Night & Day. Cancer, the sign of Moon incubation and Leo is the Sun, manifestation. Before you can manifest anything, it has to be felt in the unseen world first. Cancer's symbol in ancient Egyptian astrology is the scarab beetle. The scarab is a very mystical symbol filled with messages of the eternal and internal world. It digs and buries itself just to be reborn again, much like our beloved Moon. This process of gestation and growth belongs to Cancer. This mysterious and changeable sign represents mother ocean and all its varied existence. Everything is born from the ocean. Cancer is a cardinal sign and highlights feelings in motion. Emotion. The ebb and flow of life. Cancer is all about the family. The deep connections. Ancestral, karmic, and cosmic, they are all Cancers domain. Everything goes back to the ocean, the womb of all Life. New Moon in Cancer is here to remind us to nurture our roots. Water our seeds (ideas) and make our deepest aspirations grow. This is THE new moon of all new moons because Cancer is naturally moon energy! Intuition and sensitivities are heightened. Internalization, processing and deep acknowledgement are all very necessary at this time. We’re having such a strong feminine new moon cycle, this will lead the way into a Mercury Retrograde shadow phase of creative introspection! Like Leo, Cancer is totally creative! Those intricate emotions need an outlet or we could become prone to worry during this transit! It’s a time for poetry, praying, singing, dancing and emotional expansiveness. All of this spells out fulfilling family bonds and making deeper connections from within.

For this New Moon delve into some astral travel studies and sacred knowledge. The Akashic records are also emphasized for the New Moon in Cancer. There is a deeply internalized metamorphosis happening right now! Cancer represents the cosmic mother, so make sure to nurture yourself, your family and closest friends. Remember your past paths and expand on them for the future. I’m feeling an extreme level of de ja vu for this New Moon in Cancer phase. Like I knew this day would come. This energy will last for 2 weeks till the next Full moon. The Shadow of Mercury Retrograde will be here on July 24th! The actual Mercury Retrograde starts on August 12th. So get ready for many changes to intensify this month and the next! I am available for 1 on 1 astrology lessons, readings or classes, and will be glad to help! For the Cancer New Moon, make sure you drink your WATER! Really. This new moon cycle is also here to remind us that Life will flow smoothly if we stay hydrated. Yep, and it’s time to do that fast if you’ve been putting it off. I get through Summer months by doing a few different cleanses, so it’s not so strong of a purge in the Fall. Aloe Vera and melons, especially cucumber, are fruits governed by the Moon. Eat em up! They can be your best friend during sensitive and emotional times like these. I swear by herbal teas too. Peppermint, hibiscus, ginger, lemon, chamomile, etc. Drink it up! Coconut water mixed with fresh juices has been my latest cleansing obsession. Most of the time when we’re feeling down we are actually dehydrated.  And to all the highly emotional people out there, bath rituals are essential. Use sea salt, essential oils, stones, apple cider vinegar, candles, prayers, milks, and honey to soothe your soul. Mother takes care of All. Never forget that you are loved and free to embrace the essence of the Goddess that surrounds you. Float on!

I do readings, consultations, and classes on Past Life Astrology. Feel free to join my Raw Goddess 13 Signs Astrology Group on Facebook. I post exclusive info about the secrets of Astrology which includes the Snake and its Wisdom. Visit my webpage for more Ophiuchus revelations. Read my Blog. Order a natal reading reading from me.


His Own Worst Enemy:
Saturn-Moon in Ophiuchus

Retrograde Saturn is taking another swipe at the Trump magic

As the need is greater than ever for effective leadership, Americans face the possibility of a Trump administration bloodied like a mortally wounded bull in the ring, kicking and trashing around, part of a global trend of failed states mired in corruption and fraud. His own lack of substance, desperate isolation and pervasive paranoia may spell more danger for Trump than any media backlash or attempts to disgrace him by his enemies. Only Trump can defeat Trump.

The Age of Austerity

A look at our remaining life choices in the face of austerity,
according to the prevailing wisdom, by Brian McFadden

July 4th is the Solar return for the USA. What does the chart say to you? For astrologers, there's plenty to ponder. Chaos. Fireworks. Starburst. The symbols are making us a pictograph. Planets and stars striking esoteric angles with each other, as if communicating, or murmurating among themselves. No wonder they were once considered gods!

Did you know that Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio (as it is today) used to be one giant Scorpion constellation?  It’s true.  This ancient trifecta is what has birthed the new sign of Ophiuchus.  What makes Ophiucans so alluring?  I believe it is their ability to balance reason and intuition with the confidence to manifest accordingly.  So why do Ophiuchan Suns usually come across shy as if they are hiding something.  It’s because they are. MORE

Neptune in Our Time

The 13 Ages of Neptune take 165 years to complete around the Sun. Elusive yet conducive, Neptune plays the poetry of time like a musical instrument throughout of the facets of its romantic, mysterious journey. Here's a lyrical guide and tribute to the nomadic nature of the unconscious mind.

The Full LIST from 1873 to 2039

Neptune in Aries (1873 - 1884)

This was a time of gathering, conquering, collecting.  Repeat.  The subconscious mind is uncontrollable and Aries needs to be in control.  There were moments of troubled incertitude and the rawness of this confusion made armies form, precisely organize and attack with little regard for the enemy.  The victors came back together stronger like a pool in which bacteria gestates.  Scientists birthed their inventions.

"Welcome to Hell"
The T-square with Jupiter

Cerberus, the 3-headed dog that guards the gates of hell; a symbol of a Pluto-Mars opposition about to pounce on Jupiter. Can "lucky" Jupiter get past them?

This month we'll be observing a disoriented Virgo Jupiter being attacked by the savage dogs, in a planetary clash of planets that makes anger and frustration an everyday thing! This Pluto-Mars opposition may shatter our complacency, or fill us with terror; your choice. Pluto-Mars-Jupter is a cruel T-square that with retrograde planets, which means we'll be working backwards to unearth old battles, with hardened positions. This is the type of cosmic formation that can really reach down as touch us! It started on June 22, and its activity will continue until a slow fade begins in mid-August. MORE

Cancer and Nature

"Moonchild" by Hiroko Sakai

The Cancer Connection

The 13 sign Cancer is the Moon's Earthly companion; also her lover, her slave, and her messenger on Earth. The Cancerean third eye is always gazing at the Moon, following her cycles and translating her commands.

Like a handmaiden to the Moon, Cancer is attentive to all her moods, growth and decay, fullness and emptiness, pleasure and pain, life and death. Cancers can cultivate an understanding of the boundless sea of emotions and the infinite coldness of the ocean. While other signs sleep, Cancer is plugged into the Moon, its turmoil, its contradictions, and uncannily radiates a mournful autocracy it gets from her. The Moon can be beautiful, filling our hearts with love, or a lifeless mask holding death like a bowl full of dread. Cancer meanders through all the Moon's visible incarnations, like the rest of the signs, but it also sees the invisible, the hidden tragedy and rage behind the Moon's placid face, Cancer sees everything; the truth and the lie of the Moon's love.

"Thorn" By Hiroko Sakai

Ophiuchus and
Women's Anger


A defining issue for women is emerging, and Ophiuchus is leading the way. Thousands of years of stored-up women's anger is bubbling to the surface. Women have bottled up their resentment of male supremacy to a pressure point that it can explode at any moment. No longer content to swallow their second-class status, women are rising up in defiance of the system that has defined them as man's servants and concubines. Women are coming to the realization that THEY are the real agents of change, that men are unfocused and trapped by their own egos and emotions.

Women are no longer content to accept their role in their relations with men, children, with each other, and the family. The female is becoming alienated from her subservient roles. Many women are resisting the patriarchy, facing it down in the streets and in the court rooms.

Women Who Kill

Women pushed past their limits

The confidant, boastful world of men is spinning out of control, and women are fomenting a not-so-silent revolution. The yielding, supportive and suffering female is disappearing, and being replaced by a much more militant version of herself. Their pliant codependency with men has not served them well enough to let it continue, and women have had enough. Women are sifting through the rubble of their hopes and dreams and demanding more of themselves, and more from the men who have sabotaged them for centuries. They won't be willing victims of the system any longer. MORE

Cave paintings like the one above, date back to 40,000 years ago, when women were fleshed out as the vital elements of early human communities, as its leaders, hunters and healers, and of course, the source of life. Men were less defined, (the naked figure with the hanging appendage) viewed mostly as sperm donors, more noteworthy for their penis than any other attribute, as another of women's domesticated animals, like the dog also pictured.

What Happened to Saturn's Benevolence?

Artists rendition of Venus entering our Solar system

This is the sky as it might have looked 5,000 years ago, when Saturn provided us with stability, not suffering. This image from Thunderbolts illustrates Immanuel Velikovsky's theory that Venus was a comet that intercepted a very cozy arrangement of planets like a billiard break on a cosmic scale. This occurred, not millions of years ago, but within our collective human memory, and gave rise to our mythology, symbolism, science and art. The destruction of life on Mars, its near-extinction on Earth, and the disappearance of Saturn were all experienced traumatically by early human societies and it has scarred us ever since. MORE

Why is Saturn so Mean?

At regular intervals, Saturn seems to punish us for our transgressions, with a loss of our security, heritage and inheritance. The modern astrological version of Saturn represents repression and constriction.

It wasn't always this way, our mythology recounts a tragic story, of when Saturn loved us. Before there was this fear of Saturn, there was only faith in its benevolence. In ancient times, Saturn was seen as a cornucopia; a stabilizing influence on our planet Earth. It gave us milk and honey, a friendly climate, and all beings flourished in harmony. What happened?
