🌑🌊🦀N E W M O O N I N C A N C E R 🦀🌊🌑
Am posting the new moon piece I wrote here because my site is temporarily down. I am crying so the new moon is happy.
The super new moon in Cancer occurs on Friday, June 23rd at 7.31pm PT. Happening on the heels of the solstice, this new moon occurs at 2°47’ of Cancer. It is overflowing with the emotional tides that this water sign is famous for. Cancer cares. Gives fucks. Gives its whole heart. Cancer builds its life through bonds built out of tender touches that disarm even the most cynical of souls. It is a sign that carries with it the undeniable power of the caregiver. The mother. The one who gives us life and sustains it.
In its presence, we are reminded of how in need of love we are of. Of patience. Of understanding. We are rendered defenseless in the face of such a force.
Cancer is concerned with creating security. It does this, in part, by making sure you understand that it feels you. Feels your hunger. Feels your loneliness. Feels the emotions you are yet to make sense of.
Cancer’s waters hold the memories of every important event. Our creation, gestation and birth. Cancer knows how to bond, not break up. It’s a sign that feels the feelings that have been left unfelt.
Cancer hears the cries of the unloved. Wants to cradle the uncared for. Yearns to hold the hurt of all children unclaimed.
This new moon sits with Mercury and Mars. Mars is the warrior, a planet that doesn’t know what to do with its aggression in a sign designed to nurture life. Though awkward, Mars in Cancer can embody the archetype of the parent that goes to battle for their baby. And Cancer will take in all the babies.
