JUNE 23RD 2017 – NEW MOON IN CANCER
AstroEyes Evolutionary Astrology – Cathy Lindsey
Happy Cancer New Moon!! This New Moon happens on the heels of the Summer Solstice…..with the energies of the Summer Solstice and the New Moon reaching out and touching each other! Many of the energies of the Summer Solstice and the Cancer New Moon will be the same. I will start out talking about the Moon..which is the only planet that has moved since the Summer Solstice, in the approximate 2 and half days between the 2 events….and then I will bring in the aspects that haven’t changed from the Summer Solstice so you can understand more how the 2 events blend and differ and at the same time…help support us!
This Cancer New Moon is not sitting by itself…..Mercury and Mars are also sitting with the New Moon (the Sun and Moon sitting together). In the chart of the United States….this Cancer New Moon with Mercury and Mars is not only sitting on the Sun of the United States (in both the chart of the Summer Solstice and the New Cancer Moon)….it is also sitting on Jupiter and Venus of the United States. Mars is actually sitting on the Sun of the United State in both events. Mars is the warrior energy…and can bring up arguments, fear, accidents etc…..but it also represents passion, action, the pioneer and the crusader for a good cause. So it is time to manifest that these energies will be used in the highest way in all areas. Remember that Mars sitting on the US Sun was in both the Summer Solstice and New Moon charts….making the energy last a lot longer. With this New Moon configuration also activating the US Jupiter/Venus conjunction….there is that ability to bring in Love, Joy and Optimism which we need so badly right now….so we can overpower the fear and anger that is all around us right now…in the political arena and all over the world.
This a very Powerful and Active Cancer New Moon in itself….but also for the United States and the World. Making this a powerful time to make intentions and manifest!! Again….meditate on all of this! Using the Cancer energies of…. Love, Nurturing, Security, Family, Caring and Protection. It is time to Meditate, Manifest and Create with these Cancer energies for the good of ourselves, humanity, the Earth and the United States itself! Ask your guidance for directions. Listen to what you hear. Manifest and create…Love, Peace and Joy. Keep sending that message out so all Humanity and the collective unconscious can hear it….. Remember that good and the light always win over the dark and the fear!
New Moons mark the beginning of a new cycle. New Moons are also the most spiritual and intuitive moons of the whole Lunar cycle. It is a wonderful time to manifest, meditate and create! Each New Moon brings with it a down load of evolutionary energies giving us the knowledge to create a beautiful future. Remember that the New Moon energy last a day and half on each side of the peak.
This New Moon is in Cancer and traditionally the Moon rules the sign of Cancer, making this a very watery, intuitive and healing Moon. Cancer is about the Great Mother, the nurturer, and the protector of life. Cancer is associated with the feminine, and that all parts of our physical bodies along with the Earth are sacred. Cancer is about our emotional body, our families, tribes, and homes. The esoteric ruler of Cancer is Neptune which symbolizes that we are all children of the universe and that we all belong to the family of humanity. Cancer Feels everything! Cancer is about our emotions and our natural intuition. Meditate on this and create a healthy way to “get over” the things that are trying to hold you back….with Cancer, it is hard to let go! So this is a time to meditate on how to let go of the things that are holding you back…in all areas of your life… so you can move forward and be happy and joyful in life! This Cancer New Moon will stir a lot of feelings, and feelings let us know if something is good or bad. With the Water element of Cancer we are given the ability to adapt to, and be fluid, with the ability to discern what is healthy and what is toxic. It is important to monitor our feelings, and our emotions that are being brought up for us to honor or release. Pay attention to your body and your feelings this month. Your passion for life is ignited by your feelings. Mediate and manifest on this powerful Cancer New Moon, while planting seeds of emotional wisdom and well being. The Moon communicates with us through our right-brain…..imagination….intuition….visions…..and our Dreams.
Cancer being the natural psychologist is good at bringing up old emotional material….related to our parents or our “roots” in life. Cancer is like our umbilical cord that connects us with our home of origin. Where you started out life…..Home. For some, the “old homestead” is still around…..and for some it is not. When you think back…..the memories of your home, or your Grandparents home...for most of you… brings back memories full of warmth, love, connectedness, and family. This is Cancer. Family is there for each other…..when someone needs help or love…..Family is there. This is Cancer. Part of the Love within families is coming from the Elders, the Grandparents, the Great Uncles and Aunts…..they are like the glue that holds the family together. Listening to their wisdoms, advice, stories and memories…..that is Cancer.
Some of you don’t have those kinds of Family memories. Some of us are in situations where we are not getting along with our families…or our family members may be abusive in one way or another. It is ok to distance from them……we need to be with those that honor us and treat us with respect….we need to move away from those that are not vibrating and living in the energy that we choose to live in. Therefore we find that many people are making memories and sharing wisdoms with who they consider their “current families.” Remember….the definition of “family” is changing…..it is now including those close friends that you consider part of your family….the tribe. Sometimes it can also be because their family members live to far away to actually share on a more daily bases. Meditate on your family at this New moon and Manifest/Create ways in which you can honor and connect with your Elders (on this side or the other side)……How can you become a better Elder yourself.
A Cancer New Moon is a time to celebrate belonging, family, and home. Home of origin, your home, the home you are creating/manifesting and your home on this Earth as part of Humanity…… Flow with this Cancer New Moon and come home to the Heart!
This Cancer New Moon is also sitting with Mercury and Mars as mentioned above! This New Moon not only has to do with Families…..but with Mars (mars also represents the Sacred Male energy) involved…..it also has to do with relationships. All relationships, but mainly the romantic ones….many of which are intertwined in Family relationships also. Romantic ones…..it could be a time of romance, attraction and love….it can also be a time of moodiness, unworthiness, and sadness. With Mercury involved….the best way to work through the relationship side of this Cancer New Moon is through communication….speaking what you are feeling….and expressing your thoughts and emotions.
We are also activating a few of the ancient star systems with both the New Moon and the Summer Solstice…… I like to think of the activations of the “star systems” as a powerful “star gate” opportunity …bringing us an expansion of our consciousness, and opportunities for growth that we have never witnessed. They are also activating the knowledge in us, which is in our DNA and our Cellular memory from life times before. Activating this knowledge into our awareness. With this Summer Solstice and Full Moon we have:
This powerful Cancer New Moon is also sitting very close to the Ancient Star Sirius. The brightest star in our night sky. Mystic Alice Bailey has called Sirius “the great star of initiation, and “the source of wisdom.” Esoterically, Sirius is considered our Spiritual sun, helping to direct the awakening of humanity. This is an area to meditate on….and to listen to what you might receive as you connect with the Ancient Star Sirius!
The Leo North Node is sitting on Regulus. The North Node represents the direction that Humanity needs to move towards. A Leo North Node is about Fun, Play and the Big Heart. It is the Heart energy….Thinking through the Heart, coming from the Heart, speaking from the Heart. Regulus is said to be the Lions Heart! Regulus is also one of four Royal Stars and helps guide humanity’s evolution….it is about humanity’s shift into becoming heart centered. The Universe is speaking loudly here….are you listening!!
Remember also that the back drop of this Cancer New Moon and Summer Solstice is the ongoing and continued Cardinal Square which has formed into a Cardinal T-Square…..which is very strong!! All T-Squares are intense. This Cardinal T-Square is very powerful and could become volatile if not handled in the highest way. The planets involved are Pluto/Juno, Jupiter and Uranus/Eris/Pallas Athena! Wow…….and which continues to put us on the path of accelerated Evolution! There is so much happening with this Cardinal T-Square….that I will try to explain it in the simplest way I can…..so that you get the idea and the feeling of what it is all about.
First Cardinal Energy is about Birthing of New, Change, Transformation, and Urgency! In this Cardinal T-square we have – briefly:
Pluto/Juno – Pluto (transformation, deep Soul Work, intensity) and Juno (commitment to someone or to a cause). Pluto only cares about the evolution of your Soul and it will bring situations about to help you on this path. You will feel committed to this… with Juno sitting with Pluto. You can no longer ignore or move out of the way of the transformations that Pluto is trying to give you…you have to work though it.
Pluto is also opposite Mars in the chart of the Summer Solstice and New Cancer Moon. Mars can be a trigger point. Mars will be opposite Pluto till July 11th. This aspect could become volatile at times especially with words (Mercury). This would be a period of being extremely careful, watch what you say, what you do, where you walk, how you drive, how others drive etc. etc. You want to be aware and ahead of the game at all cost. Don’t get pulled into other people’s drama….and don’t create your own! This can involve your home, family, clan (Cancer Mars) and also your work, business and structures (Capricorn Pluto).
Jupiter – Jupiter is more of a peaceful planet…it is full of laughter, fun and optimism. It also is the planet of the Masters and is known for expanding things that it touches. In the case of the Summer Solstice and New Cancer Moon… Jupiter is in the Cardinal Square (stressful) with Mars and because of its ability to expand things it could expand the anger, accidents and violence of the Pluto/Mars opposition! We don’t want that and we don’t want to create that…..so be a head of the game where ever you go. Manifest calm (Cancer)…manifest love (Venus in Taurus) and nurture others (Cancer)….and manifest Peace!
Uranus/Eris/Pallas Athena – Uranus is the planet of constant change… of things happening suddenly and out of left field. It is also the planet of the genius and outside the box knowledge. It is about being able to see the big picture etc. It has been squaring Pluto since 2010….initiating the Cardinal Square that is still in effect….but now it has the extra help of Eris! Eris is the dwarf planet of Chaos, discord and competition. The 2 of them together has created the wild chaotic energies that we are feeling on a daily basis. So things are a bit more off balance….a bit more chaotic, a bit more competitive. Pallas Athena is the Female Warrior….bringing in the Powerful Feminine…..to try to keep things in Balance!
This may sound like a lot of doom and gloom….but really it isn’t. Knowing the energies that are surrounding you… helps you make better decisions and better choices. It gives you an understanding that many others don’t have….helping you navigate the energies better. Remember we have a powerful piece to play in this game (this incarnation)…..we can manifest and co-create our future. Don’t forget that in these chaotic times…..we are more powerful then we think…. when we connect with the high energies, Source, Creator, and our Guidance!!
This is a powerful T-Square we are moving through with this New Cancer Moon/Summer Solstice. It is saying that our world needs to change. The Cancer Moon takes care of Mother Earth…..but are we? This square very well can trigger that even more. Are we taking care of Earths Water? The Cancer New Moon is very Watery….. she is asking us not to waste the Water….not to damage the Earth and not to pollute the air. Our World has to Change! It is time to fix what is no longer working…..to move away from things/people/and places that are not resonating where you are now resonating in all areas. Although moving away from people/places/and things that no longer vibrate with you and to make changes in your life is not easy. Evolution and resurrection happens when something dies (or changes) and then “the new” begins to form….through profound and radical changes and transformations!
There will be a lot of changes/lessons and things being put right in people’s faces during these next few months….so they can see them…..and most are happing through relationships of all kinds….Family, Lovers, Friends you love dearly, and even work relationships…….There is still that constant of change (Uranus) that is also playing havoc in relationships. , there could also be a lot of power struggles with others, and within yourself. Be careful and cautious in how you speak also…
What needs changed or transformed in your life? What area is in need of creating something new, or a new way of handling things? Are there situations you need to move away from gently? Is there someone you need to distance from in the most compassionate way? Is it time to make changes in your family…..the way the family handles things? What changes do we need in the collective, the world? How can we nurture ourselves, the Earth, humanity and the Universe as we make these changes? Take time to mediate and above all…. Listen.
With this Cancer New Moon it is a good time to create new initiatives around your family, and new higher ways in which to nurture them. This is also a time to think about relationships and how you can nurture them, in the higher ways….not enable, but to nurture…..this holds true with self-nurturing also. It is a time to take extra care of our bodies, our food, our families and the Earth.
Meditate during this New Moon….. rest and nurture your body, as old emotions are released. Go sit or walk near the water and take time to Listen…..what do you hear? What thoughts are coming to you? What beautiful scenes come to you as you co-create your own reality....as you co-create the “New” Earth…..
These are the energies affecting all of humanity and the Earth. These energies also affect you individually, according to how they activate your own birth chart.
