New Moon In Cancer: The Universe Repays You With Nurturing, Healing, and Indulgence


Next Friday night, June 23, a New Moon greets us, and will mark the beginning of a new cycle. The Gemini New Moon cycle has ended,  and the Cancer New Moon cycle begins.

The New Moon in Cancer is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Crab. These include honoring our deepest, most irrational and intimate, feelings; recognizing the sense of security and safety we derive from whatever it is we call home; allowing ourselves to accept support and offering support to others; and starting a project aimed at improving our domestic lives or a major long-term venture. With this potent Cancer energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives that will benefit us well beyond this Moon cycle.

It’s time to make some plans and set the stage for reaping the rewards from our new beginnings, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks’ time after the Full Moon occurs. Concentrate on new ways to enhance family life and domestic affairs, and to build up your feelings of security and safety. With this New Moon, we are particularly alert and observant, ready to put our plans in action.

Indeed the nurturing energy is so strong at this time that it could feed an army. The great thing about this position is that the Moon will never exceed what it is willing to give. At this time we learn very quickly that we are no good to anyone if we burn themselves out.

We are drawn to healing energy that this June New Moon has in abundance. Its placement in Cancer  inspires fantastic cooks and serves health therapists well, especially those in the areas of nutrition or massage. These are the folk who on the outside, can be quite hard-headed business people.  Those touched by this new Moon will want to treat their loved ones like royalty. It’s a great period to pamper yourself, or indulge in the things you have wanted to do, but haven’t had the chance.

This all aligns with the moon AND sun conjunct Mercury. And we all know that Mercury rules communication and transport. With both celestial bodies being conjunct with Mercury, this

creates a great deal of emotional sensitivity and changeable moods. You can more easily make close emotional attachments to other people, or enjoy reminiscing about the past with family members. Conversation with women and family members in particular will be emotionally nourishing.

Your emotionally sensitivity can lead to a strong intuition and even psychic abilities. Socializing should be rewarding because your openness and understanding will promote genuine friendship.

New moon June 2017 conjunct Mercury signals the perfect time to make new partnerships of all kinds, personal and professional. The fortunate and protective nature of the fixed stars involved more than compensate for any relationship friction caused by the minor aspect or new moon semisquare Venus.

This is a great new moon for buying and selling anything associated with communication and transport. You could bargain down the price of expensive things like cars and bikes. Keep an eyes on sales if you need a new phone or printer.

The Moon is waning this week until the New Moon on the 23rd — a period that is generally considered unfavorable for new beginnings, with exceptions.  The Moon is waxing this week after the New Moon on the 23rd — a period that is generally considered favorable for new beginnings, with exceptions.

So if you want to take some time for yourself and start something new- do it, but wait until these New Moon Energies can give you the extra boost you need.
