New Moon in Cancer



Tomorrow's New Moon at 18º Cancer will oppose Pluto in Capricorn and trine Neptune in Pisces. For many this Moon brings a cathartic release; an outpouring of emotions. With Pluto there is always the possibility of an intense confrontation either leading up to the New Moon or soon afterwards. Saturn sextile Chiron encourages honest communication about what hurts which - a reminder - is not the same as being mean. Saturn always asks for a mature approach. People in your life will serve as catalysts for change at this time and what has been bottled up will come spilling out, opening a path for a new way of relating and being in the world.


This is very much a Moon of new beginnings. If you have planets or important angles between 14º-23º Cancer, this New Moon brings dramatic change. There is a strong message here to release the past, to unshackle yourself from narrow-minded conditioning and to give birth to a better version of yourself.


Neptune in Pisces asks for a healthy dose of self-compassion and faith that everything will work out in our favour while we either undergo a radical transformation or ease off the brakes and take a much deserved vacation. If you’re taking a break sometime in the next two weeks, expect to be inspired by your surroundings (Moon trine Neptune). Holidays near water (sea, lakes) will be infused with a dreamy, magical quality.
