July 9, 2021 Cancer New Moon Astrology Forecast

For this new moon, the luminaries are united in sign – Cancer is the domain of the 4th house, the private center of our lives, our domestic space, where our soul resides and the moon is in dignity. Family, hearth and home unite here. On June 20, the sun marked its highest point in the sky, heralding the start of the summer season. Now is the time to relax under the radiant glow of the mid summer sun, to revel in the finer moments of summer – on the beach, nursing a cocktail, reading a book in a hammock under the dappled green. The season the crab brings with it a tenderness.

During this time, we are encouraged to evaluate our emotional stability and security to ensure that we stand on a solid foundation of which we can continue to dream of our future goals. With the beginning of July, the fiery sun continues to swim in the tidal pool of Cancer.

On July 9, a new moon enters Cancer, triggering a new beginning. This is a time to nurture our foundations, including the foundations that we have built for ourselves. Everything must be nurtured and honored. The New Moon opens doors to our lives, accentuated by our rising or sun signs.

The New Moon in July 2021 is well placed for all of us to experience the new and exciting into our lives, along with greater self-awareness. Neptune’s retrograde step, which extends from June 24 to December 1, strengthens intuition during this time. Unexpected opportunities and a willingness to change can help overcome setbacks. The best time to start a new project is during the increasing lunar phase between July 9 and 23, when the moon is waxing. The influence of the new moon on July 9 will last about four weeks until the new moon on August 8.

The path to independence will also have challenges. We are still in the midst of a Mercury in retrograde hangover that finally stationed direct on June 22. This time, Venus is keen to throw a wrench into our plans with this new moon. Delays and limitations will make themselves known, take stock of your love life and your bank account, as the goddess of love and money will evoke these themes. These two areas of our life, love and money, will feel the most stress during this new moon. There may be new partnerships or new compromises on the horizon. Weigh everything carefully, including your options.

Romantic Venus entered the constellation of Leo on June 27 and encouraged passion and generosity in relationships. Come to the new moon on July 9th, invite your loved ones to celebrate in your new bright place.

The Universe focuses on building new stability in one of the most important areas of your life and getting you to move out of your comfort zone and make a fresh start. If you are not stable, judge why you feel the way you do, and improve as you progress. Shaking things up will not work if you lose touch with your personal emotional strength and its roots in the soul. 

The measures you take in the days after July 9 will culminate in a full moon on December 18, 2021. Plant your seeds now, take note and measure the growth – you may come further than you would have imagined in a few months.

Remember that it is important to feel good and to give ourselves a time to rest. Recover under the united sun and moon, they will shine upon and you lend you the strength you need. In the domestic area of your chart, the Sun and Moon refine issues surrounding home, house, property, heritage, and where your family truly comes from. When you give yourself a fresh start, focus on how you feel settled, safe and secure.

Leo New Moon 8/17/2020 – Echoes of 2017, Sifting Through Rubble

On August 18, 2020, we have a new moon in Leo at 26 degrees occurring at 10:42 pm

It may seem like forever ago, Cosmic Dreamers, but it was a mere 3 years ago that we experienced a major solar eclipse. Our world forever changed from that moment, and this Leo new moon echoes that degree from 2017. We have since experienced a major conjunction between the Lord of Death, Lord of Discipline, and the Lord of Expansion. We have had frightful squares and Uranus changed signed from Aries to Taurus. What have all these changes done for you, or to you?

The sun and the moon are at 26 degrees of Leo. Our conduct is more important now than ever before. New moon is asking us what our intentions are and how we will treat others – equitably, or disrespectfully? There will be consequences for either choice, but we will be aligned across our emotional and private selves, our public and logical selves.

Mercury is at the 28th degree of Leo in tight configuration with the luminaries. This means our communications are lost in the competing beams of the sun and the moon – Mercury is combust, too close to express himself well. Our communications may be lost in translation, over looked, or perhaps argumentative. Negative effects may be tempers fraying and difficulty connecting to our emotional center.

Additionally, Mars at 24 degrees of Aries is trining the Sun, the Moon, and Mercury. Mars’ trine is significant, as he intends to speed up  the effects of his enforcement, his aggression. He is already in his shadow, gearing up for the imminent retrograde. For a breathing moment before he moves backwards, there will be accord in matters of enforcement and the powers that be. Is it a calm before the storm with congress out of session, or will Mars aggression be backed by the power of government? 

Saturn at 26 degrees of Capricorn is inconjunct to the sun and the moon. Our personal and public every day life is experiencing friction from other sectors: society and law, for certain. We have been constrained in every way possible in these recent months, but the message gets crueler under Saturn’s punishing pressure. It may be that current events have forced us into a prison of many different kinds – social or literal, or placed us in a bind where all of our choices are difficult ones. Seek help where you can and do your best to stay floating in this mess, you will still need to weather the hardest part.

Pluto at 22 degrees and Jupiter at 18 degrees of Capricorn are all together in this house still, recovering from their previous square with Mars, which while not exact, is perhaps a bit too close to comfort. Friction bubbles beneath the surface.

Uranus has made it through the first decan of Taurus, and finally stationed retrograde. What has happened in the past year since May of 2018 when Uranus truly make his presence known? We have been experiencing many changes, but for now we will be reviewing all that has happened. It is time to sift through the rubble of the structures that Uranus shook, and see what needs more work, needs more time, needs more destruction.
