The power of two heavenly bodies conjoin in such a way that they effectively interact with our energies on Earth to beckon and influence.
At this moment in time the New Moon in Cancer held within the dynamic of a Solar Eclipse along with opposing by sign, not yet by degree, the Saturn Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.
This powerful dynamic combination being quite transformative in its potential catalytic significance fills me with wonder and curiosity to see how it shall affect and touch our lives.
This surely stirs up many things as these influences unfold and expand as we journey through our lives and perceive nuanced indications of change within our journey of living.
Astrology serves us well when we objectively follow the symbols, the planets, the houses and the aspects, feeling into them intuitively, then using our minds to study the knowledge found in texts and with good teachers.
The Moon In Cancer conjunct the Sun In Cancer allows for deep felt feelings to flow. Protective of its Soul, Cancer hides a powerful sensitivity. Water is its element from which emotions can emerge in a streaming strong kind of way. A nurturing sign that can serve to manifest as a mothering moment or the need to be mothered.
A flow of sensuality and colors of experience, as we have transitioned from Gemini into the watery flow of Cancer.
The Solar Eclipse becomes constellated when a significant Astrological point called the Nodes is in conjunction with either the Moon or the Sun. As it is today, July 2nd and now the Moon is new in Cancer. Since this New Moon on July 2nd is at 10 degrees Cancer it conjuncts the North Node at 17 degrees Cancer. Being at the North Node which indicates that this is a good time to focus on what is needed in your life which tends to be unknown to you and therefore unfamiliar.
It is truly a time of new beginnings.
As this North Node conjuncts the Moon In Cancer, it is a prodding moment of transformation where we experience the sweetness and power of the Feminine. By acknowledging, honoring and respecting the value of the power of the Cancer attributes of care, nurturance and soothing we evolve to own the feminine principle as a nurturing quality that supports life.
Cancer Moon connected to the home and household.
What an amazing word, thought and idea.
Cancer indicates home and home is where the heart and the household is.
Capricorn is what is needed to hold that house together via structures that are strong, flexible and supportive.
Through Centuries to date, we have gotten away from the feminine as a power whose validity. and necessity of nurturing and caring for oneself or others has lost its esteemed place of balance as equal but different than the masculine principle.
Viva le difference!
However, by diminishing the power of the feminine we as a species have lost the necessary component to our humanity. I believe the Pluto-Saturn Conjunction along with the New Moon In Cancer is guiding us towards retrieving the power of the feminine which, as it is happening now, is in the process of messaging us to restore the balance.
The energy of Capricorn which is opposing the sign of Cancer in its position as the South Node is the structure, the bones that holds it all into place. It is, so it would seem what is in the process of changing, as we are moving away from building structures for the sake of it, now we must build to sustain life as indicated by the North Node currently placed in Cancer.
Capricorn leads us to our destiny as eventually we must acknowledge the boulders, boundaries and limitations facing us that we must meet and deal with responsibly. Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, is about elevation, esteem and maturity.
Yet it is within the welcoming warmth and comfort of the nurturing home where we are cherished unconditionally. Building us up, so we meet the world in our work and career with integrity and healthy boundaries.
It is in home and house where we can revel, relax, refuel and get ready to begin again.
So to create a structure of systems that enables us to enter into our community and the world which enables us to move forward and elevate ourselves, our stature in society through the work we do knowing that it can serve as some contribution to the Public.
There is a spark of hope that a tide could be turning within our Earth and human culture towards the equal inclusion of the practices of the feminine principle.
From a personal self care and self enhancement point, this New Moon is a fertile and fecund time of focusing on what you want to bring into your life that supports the feminine nurturing principle within you. It is time to move forward within a position of conscious connection to your feelings and desires in order to make happen in practical ways what is needed and necessary to create a healthy and thriving life.
The Cancer Moon in conjunction with the North Node is a flowing movement forward towards a practical reformation of structures.
Breathe into the comfort and significance of your home.
Reflect on what you love, what you cherish about it.
Then reflect on what you are longing for.
Make a wish.
And hold that desire and see where the wish takes you within the next 6 months.
Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse In Cancer.
