This is a rather beautiful New Moon a deep reflection time to go within ponder and set intentions around how we nurture ourselves and equally how we nurture others. This New Moon is very much aligned with the archetypal mother energy as we have aspects from the Asteroid goddesses Ceres in Capricorn reminding us to ensure our nurturing is practical and heartfelt and Pallas who offer us some interesting perspectives about our personal strength and wisdom.

 I would really appreciate your support.


OK lets get into this delightful New Moon in Cancer

 

 

The New Moon in Cancer occurs in Australia on July 6th at 1.59pm Australian Eastern Time.  This New Moon feels like gentle yet profound energy enveloping us and asking us to delve deep into the archetypal realms of the mother and all the nurturing aspects of our lives. As with all New Moons, this is a time for reflection, intention, and growth.

 

Cancer, ruled by the Moon, embodies the essence of the archetypal mother, the nurturer, with our need for sanctuary, security and a sense of family and home. Gender is irrelevant here, the energy is about anyone is our lives that offers us that nurturing role and indeed equally about how we allow ourselves to receive it and how we offer it to others. This New Moon, however, is not just about the comfort of the familiar; it is also a call to confront and integrate the complexities of our nurturing instincts.

 

Opposing this New Moon is Ceres, the asteroid goddess of agriculture and motherly sustenance, retrograde in Capricorn. Ceres, co-ruler of Cancer, embodies the Earth Mother's qualities and reminds us of the cycles of nurturing and release. In Capricorn, she emphasises the need for structure, discipline, and responsibility in our caregiving roles. The opposition between the New Moon and Ceres retrograde suggests a tension between our emotional need for nurturing and the practical realities of providing care. It invites us to find a balance between offering emotional support and ensuring that our nurturing is grounded in practicality and sustainability.

 

Adding another layer of depth to this story is the Grand Water Trine formed by the New Moon in Cancer, Saturn retrograde in Pisces, and Pallas in Scorpio. Water, the element of emotions, intuition, and healing, flows harmoniously among these celestial bodies, creating a powerful trine that amplifies our emotional intelligence and intuitive insights.

 

Saturn in Pisces brings a sense of maturity and responsibility to our emotional world. It asks us to  review how we establish boundaries and commit to our spiritual and emotional growth. Pallas in Scorpio, the wise strategist, sharpens our perception, allowing us to uncover hidden truths and transformative potentials within our emotional landscape. Together, these energies create a supportive environment for deep emotional healing and the cultivation of inner wisdom.

 

However, the journey is not without its challenges. The New Moon in Cancer forms a square to the North Node in Aries and the South Node in Libra. The North Node in Aries urges us to embrace courage, independence, and assertiveness in pursuing our true path. In contrast, the South Node in Libra speaks to our past tendencies towards people-pleasing and conflict avoidance. This square presents a crucial turning point, pushing us to break free from old patterns of dependency and move towards a more authentic and self-reliant expression of nurturing.

 

As we navigate these complex energies, we are reminded of the multifaceted nature of the mother archetype. The New Moon in Cancer encourages us to embrace our vulnerabilities and emotional depths while also recognising the importance of boundaries and self-care. Ceres in Capricorn challenges us to bring structure and discipline to our nurturing roles, ensuring that our care is both heartfelt and practical.

 

The Grand Water Trine, meanwhile, provides a reservoir of emotional strength and wisdom, guiding us towards healing and transformation. And the square to the Nodes of Fate compels us to release old patterns and step into a more empowered and authentic version of ourselves.

This is our invitation; to reflect on how we nurture ourselves and others. Are we offering care from a place of wholeness, or are we depleting ourselves in the process? Are we willing to confront and release old habits that no longer serve our growth? This New Moon in Cancer offers a sacred moment to honour the nurturing spirit within us, embrace our emotional truths, and step boldly into a future where our care for ourselves and others is both genuine and sustainable.


As the gentle and nurturing energy of the Cancer New Moon graces us, it offers a profound opportunity to dive deep into the emotional realms and connect with our innermost selves. This is the perfect time to explore the Cancerian archetypes within your own astrological chart, uncovering the themes of home, family, security, and emotional nourishment. I am fully booked for most of the rest of July and will be travelling throughout all of September, so book in now for August. Head to www.aspectastrology.com.au/bookonline.

What is better than one Full Moon in Capricorn? Two and a Winter Solstice. Happy Longest day of the year and the eve of the Australia Full Moon in Capricorn, well the first at least. There will be another at the end of this Cancer Season as we have 13 moons a year and each year this means two fall in one sign and this year it is Capricorn. Given we are in Winter here in the Southern Hemisphere, I feel it is appropriate. Capricorn energy is often associated with the gathering of resources, what you need to sustain yourself, before the cold of winter sets in. This Full Moon is a moment where the days are super short but going to get longer, the middle of the year and an opportunity to pause and reflect on the balance between our inner and outer worlds, our outward ambitions and our inward desires.

The Full Moon in Capricorn occurs in Australia on June 22nd at 11.08am at 1 degree of Capricorn. Look to see where early Capricorn is in your chart to glimpse the areas that will be affected by this earthy cardinal Moon. We are at the middle of the year and at this midpoint, it's wise to pause and reflect on our progress. We began the year with the Sun in Capricorn, setting our goals and resolutions with a focus on planning and achievement. Now, under the Full Moon in Capricorn, we are asked to review and adjust our priorities, goals, and ambitions. This is a period for assessing how we manage our responsibilities and where we might need to make changes.

Capricorn energy encourages us to be dutiful and responsible, often placing ambitions above all else. This Full Moon asks us to evaluate where we may be overcommitting in one area at the expense of another. Conversely, it's also a time to identify where we might be shirking responsibilities that need our attention. What is holding us back from achieving a balanced approach to our duties?

The Full Moon shines a light on the balance we all need to achieve between our roots and our aspirations, our inner world with our outer world, our family life and our career. With the Sun being in Cancer the feeling realms are heightened and emotions around these kinds of themes are calling to be acknowledged. It's time to articulate our inner experiences and cleanse our systems by letting go of what no longer serves us.

This Full Moon emphasises the need for work-life balance, urging us to evaluate our performance in both domains and ensure that these aspects of our lives are in harmony.

Are we managing our responsibilities effectively?

Are we allowing one area to overshadow the other?

Or are we avoiding our duties altogether?

During this Full Moon the Sun in Cancer is sitting next to Venus in Cancer as well with Mercury also having recently joined the sign. The emphases then during this time may be thinking about our inner worlds, our need to connect deeply with our loved ones, enhance our emotional bonds and foster a sense of security and comfort.

The Moon in Capricorn, on the other hand, represents our outer worlds, focusing on our responsibilities, careers, public standing, and reputation. This opposition highlights the interplay between our private and public lives, showing how our inner world influences our external actions and vice versa. Capricorn energy is about self-reliance, standing firm, and functioning effectively in the public sphere while maintaining integrity and striving for accomplishments that benefit both ourselves and others.

It may be wise to feel int these themes without taking rash action however as we also have Neptune making a square to this full moon, a configuration that calls for caution regarding confusion, illusion deception and self-deception. We need to ask ourselves now whether our perceptions around these themes are realistic or shrouded in illusion or fantasy. Are our expectations of both our inner, root family world and equally our outward career focused world realistic? Neptune's influence can blur the lines between reality and illusion, making it crucial to stay grounded and discerning and making sure we see through any potential delusion or idealism.  We might also find ourselves reacting to disillusionment or uncovering truths that challenge our perceptions.

Use this Full Moon to release patterns and behaviours that lead to being overly responsible or not responsible enough in various areas of our lives. Embrace the opportunity to find harmony between your inner and outer worlds, and let go of what no longer serves your growth and well-being.

.

This time encourages us to find a balance between our professional and personal lives, nurturing ourselves and our relationships while pursuing meaningful achievements. A personalised reading with me can help you make the most of your goals and sense of direction, with a focus on how to stay grounded, be honest with yourself, and fully embrace your highest potential.

The Sun shifts in watery cardinal Cancer on June 21st.  Personally, I do love a Cancer Season in Australia, a time that also sees us transition into the winter solstice here in Australia, marking a profound shift in our cosmic landscape as we move from riding the rather vibrant and buzzy waves of an abundance of planets in Gemini. Now, Cancer's nurturing and introspective energy invites us to retreat inward. It's a time to cozy up, reflect, and rejuvenate.

Cancer energy encourages us to slow down, embrace our emotions, and seek comfort in our personal sanctuaries. It's a beautiful period for self-care, deepening family bonds, and reassessing our goals with a heart-centred approach. On the solstice we are reminded to embrace these moments of retreat to allow ourselves to embrace the dark, our vulnerable emotional selves knowing that from here the days will start to get longer and the opportunity to re-emerge and shine during Leo Season is just around the corner.

The Symbolism of the Crab

The story of the crab, which regularly sheds its shell to grow, beautifully reflects Cancerian energy. The crab faces great vulnerability while waiting for its new shell to form, often retreating to a secure place until it is safe to re-emerge. This story reminds us to shed what we have outgrown, to allow ourselves to feel vulnerable, and to grow a new part of ourselves ready to emerge when the Sun shifts into Leo. Use this Cancer season to go within, nurture yourself, dive into your emotions, and re-emerge as a stronger, better version of yourself.

Themes of Cancer Season

In Australia, Cancer season beckons us to go within, stay indoors, nurture ourselves and others, connect with family, and move away from the heady experience of Gemini into the more feeling realms. This time is about recharging our batteries and nurturing our spiritual practices. It's an excellent period to focus on your biological or chosen family, attend to home maintenance or renovation projects, cook delicious meals, and nurture yourself and others.

Cancer, by nature, is a beautifully emotional, sensitive, nurturing energy focused on looking after others. It is the sign of the archetypal mother—protective, caring, and willing to defend the family. The Moon rules Cancer, and like the Moon, it is changeable; it ebbs and flows like the ocean's tides. It can be moody and broody, but at its essence, it is all about honouring the divine feminine energy in all of us.

Energetic Shifts and Astrological Events


We are likely to feel a stark energetic shift as we move from mutable air to cardinal water. Very quickly after the Sun moves into Cancer, we experience the first of two Full Moons in Capricorn. This energy offers us the opportunity to balance our outer worlds with our inner worlds, contemplating how we navigate our professional and personal lives and how we fuse our outward responsibilities with our emotional needs and values.

A few days later, the ruler of Capricorn, Saturn, shifts back into retrograde motion in the sign of Pisces. This may spark a period in which we review and reassess how we implement and navigate boundaries in our lives. It may also be a period to review long-term goals and create foundations for our creative, spiritual, and emotional needs.

These themes might be particularly predominant this Cancer season as Neptune, the co-ruler of Pisces, also turns retrograde on July 2nd. This could be an opportunity to peel back the layers of delusion or confusion, seek greater clarity, and cultivate a more realistic perspective in our lives.

On the same day, Mercury moves out of Cancer and into Leo, compelling us to be more expressive and bold in our communication with others, offering a period for creative self-expression and enthusiastic idea-sharing.

The New Moon in Cancer on July 6th will consolidate this Cancer season with an extra focus on our emotional well-being, family dynamics, and themes of security and belonging in our lives. This will be a potent time for setting intentions around how we wish to foster and possibly change these themes in our lives.

The energy may lift when Venus joins Mercury in Leo on July 12th. Our love language and romantic needs will be fueled with more passion, expression, and creativity. We are reminded to celebrate beauty, embrace the parts of ourselves that need to shine, and metaphorically dance like no one is watching.

Energetically, July 21st will bring forth a burst of dynamic and versatile energy as Mars moves into Gemini, increasing our curiosity, mental agility, and need for change. Finally, we shift into Leo season and step onto the stage of life as the Sun moves into the heart of its home sign, Leo, on July 22nd.


Remember Cancer season is a time to go within, to nurture yourself, dive into emotional depth and introspection. Embrace the nurturing qualities of Cancer while navigating the changes and opportunities presented by the cosmos. Allow for growth, clarity, and creative expression, and emerge stronger and more aligned with your true self.


As Cancer Season embraces us with its nurturing and intuitive energy, this period is an ideal time to delve into your astrological chart. With the upcoming full moon in Capricorn, the spotlight is on cardinal signs—Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

This period offers a powerful opportunity for initiating new beginnings and making strategic decisions.

Exploring your chart during this time can provide profound insights into your personal and professional ambitions, helping you harness the practical, disciplined energy of Capricorn. In our astrology session I can help you embrace this moment to set intentions and build a solid foundation for your future, aligning your goals with the supportive, transformative energies of your unique astrological blueprint.
