New Moon in Cancer
June 26/27, 2014

Dear Readers,

You may notice some changes to our web site over the next several months as we work to provide you with a better service.

Here's the chart for the Cancer New Moon:
Our calendars have exact time and date in your zone


The sign of Cancer is associated with one's early childhood development, roots, home and family. The house that Cancer occupies in the natal chart shows an area of life where one can be moody, insecure, and defensive, as well as intuitive, empathetic, and responsive. Cancer is a holistic or feminine sign, containing both the father and mother principles of protector, provider, nurturer and supporter. Ruled by the Moon, there is an emphasis on rhythmic cycles, memory, intuition, and an inspired imagination. The role of food, which nourishes both the physical and emotional body, becomes emphasized during Cancer, as does the element of water. Issues involving the public, homeland, tribe and family become accentuated during the Cancer cycle.

Sun & Moon semi-sextile Venus:
The need for self-nurturance and self-acceptance is highlighted, yet the easily distracted mind seems disinclined to follow through. Be especially conscious of any sabotaging self-talk, most likely to show up in the form of comparison to others.

Mercury semi-sextile Jupiter:
Communication styles and belief systems are not in agreement. In other words, it's a case of knowledge versus wisdom. Beliefs and reliable information are out of sync. For example, your education is out of alignment with deeply held traditional concepts, such as the faith of your family of origin. The tendency is toward a distorted perspective.

Mars semi-sextile Saturn:
Restrained aggression. A shaky alliance between working for peace and respecting the desires of others. Irresponsible actions by those in authority. Obstacles cause delays. The tendency is to force things to conclusion. In essence, bad timing.

Saturn quincunx Uranus:
Achieving independence while remaining responsible to others is challenging. Adjusting to unexpected situations can be especially difficult because of the interruption to your work. However, once you've adapted, you will find your work flows more smoothly.

The key phrase for Cancer is "I FEEL":
This is an excellent cycle for registering your emotional responses, for reflecting on your past conditioning, for making changes in your home that will make it feel more nurturing to your soul, and for strengthening family ties. This is a time to prune for growth. Focus on your priorities. Eliminate activities that do not support your goals.

Our advice for this cycle:
At issue is how you make changes, how you join the flow of life, how you move and grow into the world. Create a place of refuge and renewal in your home and in your heart, a sacred space where you can spend a few minutes or more every day, feeling loved, safe and secure.

Cancer correlates to Growth on the Medicine Wheel. The Gemini cycle brought us the illumination necessary for our continued development. It's time to take action in support of our growth. This is an excellent cycle to record your feelings in a journal.

Reflect upon the times you've given comfort or good counsel to others. List your recollections about each instance and describe how you felt at the time. How do you feel about those moments now?

Other questions you might explore for personal insight include:

  • What hunger gets triggered by your emotions?
  • When does it happen?
  • How do you feed it?
  • What or who puts you into protective mode?
  • Where and with whom do you feel most nurtured?
  • When and with whom do you feel most nurturing?
  • Where and with whom would life be easier if you were more receptive, reflective, and responsive?

Affirm: Change nurtures my development. I Am secure in the center of my heart.

Attune to the qualities of Cancer with a 3-minute tarot meditation on The Chariot.

The Chariot portrays the figure of the inner-self; at rest, yet poised for action. Symbolic of the conquest over illusion, The Chariot teaches us the defining quality of speech and how self-talk creates our reality.

Confer with The Chariot when you wish to make a positive change in your life.

Quote for this cycle:

"In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony."
~ Eva Burrows (1929 - ) Australian community welfare organizer
