"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Cancer New Moon & Mercury Goes Direct Again July 1st

   This morning's New Moon in the Cardinal Water sign of Cancer comes one week after the Summer Solstice, signifying Luna's return to it's home sign and conjoining with Sol to put added emphasis on emotional security and one's nest. Whether you own or rent, you will be experiencing a greater need for making your home more comfortable or secure. For some, this will mean finding the right home for yourself, one that suits your needs in both a practical and nurturing manner.

   Another attribute of this placement is increased intuition and a pull to instinctual behavior, which may be difficult if trying to move out of old habit patterns. The Moon cares about how you feel, not what you do, so go easy on yourself and others, especially those in your home. Have a barbeque, splash in the water or give some loving kindness to someone on the ropes. Just watch out for emotional overindulgence and feeling sorry for yourself. Remember, Cancer is a Cardinal/active sign and can begin moving towards security!

   The Sabian Symbol for 6 degrees of Cancer, where the Moon meets the Sun, is "Game Birds Feather Their Nests". Lynda Hill says of this degree symbol, that there is a desire for security in an unstable situation; the readiness for new life and new beginnings is evident! The keywords offered here are: laying the groundwork; nurturing; creating a base where one can feel safe; landlords and tenants; nesting instincts and watching for danger. The "game birds" signify feeling expendable in some way, so the caution here is not to be afraid to venture out on your own and to avoid trying to take over someone elses territory.

   Four days from now, on July 1st, Mercury goes into Direct motion again. Whatever you've been backtracking/reworking on concerning agreements or plans since June 6th, you ought to be getting a handle on by now. After this time, the rewrites, new contracts and plans can start to be implemented!
This mercurial planet of the mind will go direct at 25 degrees of Gemini, moving forward to 28 degrees by July11th, where it makes a semisextile with giant Jupiter, a week before he leaves Cancer after his year-long stint there. This is when we begin to feel better about things working out and plans falling into place. Pay attention to your intuition then for signs of positive movement and the right path to proceed along.

   In the meantime, remember to keep your head in the stars, your feet on the ground and your heart open~
