New Moon in Cancer
Transit strength: strong monthly transit.
Transit duration: energies will be strong throughout the week, peaking on Friday and during the weekend.
The New Moon will occur on Friday the 13th of July, at 20 ° in the sign of Cancer. Besides the conjunction, the Sun and Moon will form one more important aspect, the opposition to the retrograde Pluto in Capricorn.
The above mentioned transit will have the strongest impact on Cancers, Capricorns, Libras and Arians. All those, born around the 13th of July, October, January and April will be affected by the energies of the New Moon the most. People with significant planets and astrological points between 18 ° and 23 ° in the sign of Cancer, Capricorn, Libra and Aries will also experience these energies profoundly.
If you would like to know if your planets and astrological points fall under the influence of this current aspect, you can simply ask me or you can make your own astrological chart. The chart will show you exactly where all your planets and points fall within your natal chart wheel.
You can create your natal chart on this site: https://www.astro.com/cgi/genchart.cgi, but you must first create either a guest profile or a permanent one. In either case you will need to enter birth data, such as place, date and time of birth, and then create birth chart under free horoscopes and extended chart selection. Then you will select the guest or permanent profile you created under Birth data and under Methods you will select natal chart wheel. Finally, click on the blue “click here to show the chart” button and your map will pop up. 🙂 You will see a graphic representation of your chart, a 360° wheel. All the positions of all your personal planets and astrological points will be listed in the bottom left corner. That’s it. 🙂
Emotional needs, moods, challenges, responses, frustrations
This New Moon will emphasise all our emotional needs and situations, problems, discomforts, desires, hopes, fears which trigger our intense emotional responses. Our emotions will be strong, intense, sudden and very changeable. Mood swings will be common. Our determination, focus, perseverance, patience, entrepreneurship will play an important role but for the truly positive and fulfilling utilisation of these Lunar energies, our emotional intelligence will of course be of the utmost importance.
We will recognise what is truly good for us, what is worth the investment of our emotional energy, love, concern, dedication, care and commitment, etc. Emotional stability, security and peace will become important values, but they will not be achieved without understanding another very important aspect of our emotional lives, that is, the true purpose and meaning of emotional independence. This value above values will truly reflect and reveal the level of our emotional maturity and test our emotional intelligence as we interact with the world around us during the upcoming New Moon in Cancer.
So what does it mean to be emotionally independent? Quite simply, this means that the individual does not allow life situations, events, occurrences of any kind to undermine, hinder or interfere with their sovereign right and ability to be part of and to be in charge of their inner most, emotionally based decision-making and action producing processes. Further more, emotionally independent individuals do not allow disruption or destruction of their emotional security, stability, their sense of inner peace, self-esteem, self-worth, self-confidence. This is how these individuals can generate long-lasting, true and profound sense of self-fulfilment and personal happiness. Human relationships, interaction, communication, mechanisms and patterns of behaviour, actions based on fear, unrealistic expectations, unrealistic desires, unhealthy passions, illusions, harassment, exploitation, vengefulness, hatred, selfishness, insecurity are always detrimental to our self-esteem, self-worth, emotional integrity, security, stability, inner peace and put us in the position where we become emotionally dependent on the outside world to provide us with some sort of delusional sense of fulfilment, happiness, pleasure, joy no matter how trivial, vague, short-lasting or superficial that feeling may be. Our emotions and emotional excitement, disruption therefore automatically dictate our responses, actions and decisions. It is a sign of low emotional intelligence and low self-awareness.
This time the Moon promises and brings a lot to people who know who they are, to people who show self-respect, to people who practice self-love and know how to take care for their own personal happiness and well-being. Desires, passions, emotions, will awaken motivation, ambition, produce action with these kind of people but never will they allow something to ruin their inner emotional equilibrium.
During this Moon concern for others, showing and offering our attention, love and caring as well as desiring all these things, will be important aspects of our interaction with the outside world, but as we should strive towards emotional independence, none of this must lead to exploitation, injustice, emotional dependency.
Let this Moon awaken a strong self-awareness within you, recognise your real needs, desires, goals, break away from a cycle of addictive behaviour. Feel your true value, gain self-esteem and self-confidence. Do not become and remain the object or the initiator of exploitation and manipulation. Allow the Moon to give you special a power, allow her to help you see beyond the tiresome everyday trivia you are caught in and you will become strong enough to acknowledge, accept, and realise that the greatest happiness is to love oneself.
