This week we have a New Moon Lunar in Cancer on July 9 at 9:16 pm EDT (find your time here).
A Cancer New Moon turns the collective lens on the home and family forefront. It is an energy that asks us to examine our relationship with themes of self-care, safety, nurturing, and tending. Exactly what kinds of questions will come up for you on this New Moon will depend on where this New Moon lands in your birth chart (see the horoscopes below for insights), but this may be a time where you reevaluating your home environment, questioning if where you live and who you live with is still in alignment with your ultimate dreams and goals.
Other planets are also interacting with this New Moon, which brings about how we nurture ourselves during times of change. This New Moon is sextile Uranus, the planet of change. We may find ourselves in a situation where we or someone we care about suddenly needs more care and nurturing from us than we're used to.
This New Moon is also trine Neptune, suggesting that our intuition is going to play an important part here, and we need to be caution of wearing rose-colored glasses. The truth may not what is always appears to be at first glance.
We also have an opposition between the Moon and Pluto at play, so we may be facing feelings of overwhelm. Overall a situation may occur that requires us to make an adjustment, and we feel perhaps like it's all too much at once and we're unsure if we can handle it, but once we lean into our intuition and trust what our gut instinct it telling us, we'll be able to move through with relatively smooth sailing.
Some questions to ask yourself on this New Moon:
What helps me feel safe and secure?
What habits nurture me when I don't feel like myself?
What helps me put my needs first so I don't burnout?
