on June 23rd/24th, depending on where we are in the world, we will experience the peek of very water influenced Cancer New Moon at 2 degrees and 47 minutes. But not only is the Moon located in the water zodiac sign of Cancer, but also the Sun, Mercury and Venus. Topping up that picture is Neptune, which is positioned in the water sign Pisces during this New Moon phase. So be prepared for a lot of emotional transitions, lots of chances to choose love over fear and even more emotional new beginnings.
A New Moon is always an excellent opportunity to pull in new energies and plant seeds of clear intention, into the fertile night sky of the upcoming Moon Cycle. This time we will be challenged to truthfully explore our feelings about family, love relationships and the inner circle of our friends. Who can we trust for life? Do we trust ourselves and our intuitive insides? Those are questions that can individually come up for us in this week.
I don’t trust people who don’t love themselves and tell me, ‘I love you.’ … There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.
I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

We always see our worst selves. Our most vulnerable selves. We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong. Someone we trust.
Mercury who is the ruler of Virgo and Gemini, is right now sitting in Cancer on top of the Moon, which makes its influence of driving our communication skills more emotional and more directed towards how we truly feel about other people; just as much as how we communicate with and about ourselves. Be aware of your self-talk!! Are you self-loving and kind enough??
Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.
Stephen R. Covey
Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else. Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.
A dialogue is very important. It is a form of communication in which question and answer continue till a question is left without an answer. Thus the question is suspended between the two persons involved in this answer and question. It is like a bud with untouched blossoms . . . If the question is left totally untouched by thought, it then has its own answer because the questioner and answerer, as persons, have disappeared. This is a form of dialogue in which investigation reaches a certain point of intensity and depth, which then has a quality that thought can never reach.
Mars is in 12 degrees conjunct with this Cancer New Moon, in a semi-square with Venus and Taurus, in a square with Chiron the wounded healer in 28 degree of Pisces, and a square with Jupiter in Libra. That means our life’s will be circling around the themes of making a deep emotional connection, finding honest expression for our true feelings and who we truly care for. If we are brave and express our love for other individuals, the influence of Chiron will lead us to the healing of past disappointments.
And last but not least, the importance and complexity of human nutrition will be a mayor influence during this Cancer New Moon energy. How are we truly supposed to nurture ourselves?? What is it we eat these days?? Is material food the only / best source for human nutrition? This and more are questions you might ask yourself and others because of the Moon this time. I will be posting a special article discussing this topic in detail in the coming days!!
Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.
And in this curious state I had the realization, at the moment of seeing that stranger there, that I was a person like everybody else. That I was known by my actions and words, that my internal universe was unavailable for inspection by others. They didn’t know. They didn’t know, because I never told them.
Kim Stanley Robinson
Nutrition matters for everybody, but you can’t major in it at Harvard. Most top scientists go into other fields. Most of the big studies were done 30 or 40 years ago, and most are seriously flawed. The food pyramid that told us to eat low fat and enormous amounts of grains was probably more a product of lobbying by Big Food than real science; its chief impact has been to aggravate our obesity epidemic. There’s plenty more to learn: we know more about the physics of faraway stars than we know about human nutrition. It won’t be easy, but it’s not obviously impossible: exactly the kind of field that could yield secrets.
Dear Ones, I hope you are deeply in love with this magical Cancer New Moon energy field. I hope you are feeling the love for yourself, for life and maybe even a very special somebody till the bones of your physical body right now! May you be blessed with many wonderful moments of intimacy and compassionate sharing during this intense Moon days!! Have faith and keep creating your souls deepest desires!!
Lots of New Moon Love! Edith.
