It’s the NEW MOON in Cancer, and it’s a SUPER Moon, which means the Moon is at one of its closest points to Earth in its orbit. And that means we’ll feel this Cancer Moon even more intensely and personally. (New Moons are not visible unless there’s a Solar Eclipse)
Cancer is the roots Moon. It’s a symbol of your past, your family, your history. Dreams and revelations (from your subconscious) can bring deeper awareness of your feelings about nurturing, and realizations about how your past effects how you support and care for yourself and others now. Priceless wisdom is available at this New Moon.

Moon & Sun @ 2 Cancer 47
Mercury @ 5 Cancer 52
The Moon and Sun are conjunct in the sky @ 2 Cancer 47, which is an “Aries Point.” These are the first few degrees of every Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) and point to where – and when – the action is. And it’s now.
Since Summer Solstice was only 2 days ago, the chart is very similar – except for the Moon, and this is a NEW MOON chart. The Moon is in its home sign of Cancer, so Cancer and the Moon will have even greater influence. And with the Moon conjunct the bright Sun, emotions can be fiery and passionate.
And since Mercury will be conjunct the Moon & Sun – and the Moon will exactly conjunct Mercury a few hours after the New Moon is exact – this means communication is in full focus. How you talk to others matters. And Moon-Mercury can take the passion of this New Moon and make it personal, emotional, intuitive, and very perceptive. You may be concerned with health, healthcare for you and your family, and everything that effects your daily life. Mercury with the Moon can help you understand your thoughts so you can talk about how you feel, and why. And that can help to resolve old issues, especially with family, friends & neighbors. If you can trust your intuition, you can open up and speak with honesty and love from your heart.
Your enhanced understanding can be an additional asset.
Ceres, the Great Mother asteroid, makes an exact opposition to Saturn at the New Moon and you may have to make difficult decisions. The need to achieve and the need to feel nurtured can be equal and opposing. And that can bring up childhood memories of denial of love – or – of discipline that taught you to tune out emotions and work hard to achieve. If you never felt the protective bond of unconditional love, intimacy can continue to elude and may be something you avoid as an adult. Instead of running in the opposite direction, and even burning bridges, you may find a way to have it both ways as you realize, you need to achieve on your own AND feel comforted and comfortable nurturing loved ones – and your Self. There is a solution! Even if it takes a little longer than planned to find one that works. Keep talking…
