New Moon In Cancer July 20th

The New Moon in Cancer occurs at 11:32 am MDT (10:32 am PDT, 1:30 pm ET) Monday, July 20th.

This is the second New Moon in Cancer and happily this one is not an eclipse! Two new moons in the same sign is a cosmic sign to work with the qualities and wisdom inherent in that sign, so here we’re encouraged to revisit issues of home, family, heritage and property. This New Moon asks you to “get real”, accept a decision or cut your losses especially around Cancerian themes like property. But this can also apply to business as the Sun opposes Saturn in Capricorn.

So for example, if you’ve been umming and ahing about whether or not to close your doors or sell your business this aspect will bring you fresh insight or help you make a final decision.

This astrology does not favour any projects or plans for quick profits and immediate results. This is conservative and slow astrology.

Saturn and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn continue to break down structures of all kinds including psychological structures that are no longer sustainable or healthy. Issues with authority and even father-figures will come up if they haven’t already, and these issues require your attention. Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn sextile Neptune in Pisces favours philosophical or spiritual reflection and if you started learning something this year, expect this New Moon to usher in a time of deep insights and increased learning.

Best time to…

  • Start a major project that will require months of disciplined work. Please note that anything you start now will not bear fruit for many months.

  • Spend time with family

  • Nourish yourself with good food

  • Reflect on your beliefs around “family” and parenting

  • Work with a therapist or coach

  • Start a spiritual practice

  • Wear a mask
