Early in the hours of Tuesday 21st July AEST we witness the first non-eclipsed lunation in three lunar cycles. A Second opportunity presents for the New Moon in Cancer, to bare roots after 19 months of eclipses on this axis of Cancer (Moon ruled) / Capricorn (Saturn ruled).
For the first time in 19 months a Moon in Cancer or Capricorn is not being harmed or damaged by an Eclipse and it’s fortuitously on the second Cancer New Moon, in 28 days (not common).
The New Moon at 28°of Cancer is exactly opposite Saturn in Capricorn. A heavy and restrictive weight. Saturn being applied at this New Moon doesn’t make for great comfort. Saturn likes to strip back down to basics, getting down to the nitty gritty, its preference is for prolonged strict consistency and routine. Saturn can also be grief, facing reality as well as facing karmic realities of decisions previously made, through this 19-month period.
Potentially a time to celebrate, getting our Cancer and Capricorn Moon cycles back, the sombre tone and confronting the stark realities we now maybe facing, gives more gravitas and grieving to things we leave behind at this New Moon. We aren’t clear as to which direction this new world we are about to create will take us. A fresh cycle, is being born out of 19 months of stress, challenge, change, especially for anyone with their Sun, Moon or personal planets in these signs, will feel this more strongly.
The days leading up to new moons are traditionally times of rest, release and purging of old debris. Our current dark moon period is extra potent due all that has been stirred around Cancer and Capricorn axis over the past 19 months, with the eclipses along with other planets on this axis.
This New Moon in Cancer is a start point, on where we can begin to redirect our energies to get things back on track within the Cancer and Capricorn areas of life, as sombre as the tone maybe, there is real opportunity to begin something long lasting and more true to form, even if the picture, hasn’t been fully formed yet …..
