NEW MOON IN 23° CANCER
July 16TH 3:24 am CEST
Time to make new plans and initiate a new journey. New moons represent new beginnings and Cancer — the water sign that represents the mother in us — is here to shake things up: during this new moon, and the next couple of weeks that follow it, you may feel like an emotional roller coaster when it comes to set new goals or move ahead with your plans. You will want to take action, get on the driver’s seat and make big changes, but your decisions will come and go, following your shifting mood.
This time your attention will be drawn to your home, family, pets, personal projects, business partners and how you can nurture and be nurtured by those who are closest to you. Your internal world will be in focus: you may feel more introspective and concerned by what affects you personally and the people you love the most, but your thoughts will be colored by many emotions, and you may have difficulties being objective and practical. With Venus going retrograde (July 25th), a lot of us will be actively looking for new love or working on our current relationship: make sure you are seeing situations and people as they are and don’t compromise your values and principles.
The message of this new moon: if we can’t love and nurture ourselves we won’t be able to love and nurture others. Be honest about what you need, and don’t take that for granted. Communicate your needs to family members or partners and make sure you do it with an attitude of mutual respect. Don’t neglect your inner child, listen to it and protect it as if you were your own mother.
Happy New Moon ☽♡☾
