Cancer New Moon 2022
Who Rules Your Roost?
The new Moon on 28 June 10:52 PM EST is located at 7 degrees 22 minutes Cancer.
Saturn and Pluto retrograde.
Jupiter Chiron and Mars in Aries. Jupiter is exactly square the New Moon.
Venus is exactly semisextile the New Moon at 7 degrees Gemini. Gemini is ruled by Mercury. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius which makes a natural opposition to Gemini. The task of gleaning what is true for us, at core is important to us as individuals and as a collective at this time.
We can begin again to look at and practice how we value our own personal agency and authority with the new Moon in natural opposition to Capricorn.
What happens when external entities attempt to assert parental authority on the adult individual?
How does the individual embody and assert its role as an adult member of the collective?
What voice does it use? What information does it have at hand? How does it balance emotion and steely resolve?
The Jupiterian aspects at this new moon can make situations feel larger than life. They can also fuel us with a much needed can do optimism.
The natural Cancer square to Libra asks how can I be myself in relation to others.
Saturn in Aquarius is Sextile Mars in Aries bringing the fuel to keep us going on the endeavors on which we embark: whether it is writing letters, making placards, hitting the streets, or tuning in to the angels, guardians, ancestors, guides, spirits of Nature to help in the subtler realms to raise vibrations and direct energies where they are needed most.
Each has its many gifts. Each has its choices on how to process, and to respond.
When it may all feel like too much, focusing on homely things can bring us back to center, to recharge, during this potent And new mooniest of new moons because Cancer is ruled by the moon.
We can connect with Spirit and ourselves by focusing at the task at hand. The garden always gives comfort and company. Cancer is finding a way to be emotionally secure on its own steam. Our stomach asks for a meal that shows we value our physical body by feeding it well. The laundry gives an opportunity to quiet the mind and open space to receive valuable info while being grateful for the clean chemise. Cancer is the Mother and she has eyes in the back of her head. She knows and sees most things. The rest of it she feels. Allow time to embody the fullness of the divine Feminine and allow the fierceness of her fire to gather in the belly. The wisdom, strength and courage to mother all kinds of things – not just children – is calling to us at this new Moon. It is calling to be brought home to each of us and to be nurtured and grown in our own special way. Whatever we dream into and create is witnessed and blessed now. New projects, new or reawakened spiritual practices- can be embarked on now. Whatever brings us closer to the home within, to the Self we love and value first and foremost. Then we light up like the moon and we set the skies aglow.
Neptune begins retrograde motion in its home sign of Pisces until December 22nd. Our deepest side will be the guide. Dream into creative solutions now.
May Courage, strength, and a sense useful direction be with us all.
The June full Moon takes place on 14 June 7:51 AM at 23 degrees 25 minutes Sagittarius.
Sun in airy Gemini feeds the fire of Sagittarius.
They are mutable signs that want to flow, blow and transmute.
See what a light breeze can do to fan flames. See what a wind can do to transport a pile of old leaves and dust.
See what a fire can do to completely change a landscape.
Now see what new information can do to change the mind.
Both Sagittarius and Gemini deal with information and ideas.
Gemini likes to collect anything new: from ideas to technology to fashion to gossip.
Sagittarius likes to sift through the input to see what it makes of it. Sagittarius deals with truth and lies. This is why Sagittarius also rules higher education. Hopefully, with elevated study, we learn to think for ourselves. That is a natural progression into maturity. We examine the world around us. We take a bit of the fruit to see if it is wax or plastic or actually an apple.
This process of investigation is the Sagittarius way.
What in our lives, at the moment can appear to be worthwhile, appear to be nourishing, appear to be in our best interest – but may really just appear to be…
What is the truth of the activities, relationships and things in our lives?
Is that really the best knife for me to use to cut carrots? Or was I just convinced of that fact on TikTok?
Which knife in my drawer works the best for me?
It is easy to be drawn in by the next trend, that thing that is shiny and new or the thing that was persuasively introduced by a convincing influencer?
Using our natural talent, developed over the lifetime, is how we determine the truth from a lie for ourselves.
This is very much the business of the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity.
We gather information and experiences. We find and hone our own ways of evaluating these experiences. We develop the ability to discern.
We have the opportunity to learn to read and trust our inner compass that always knows True North.
When we are told that a person or entity has our best interest at heart, yet we see by their actions that is, actually not the case, we hopefully are able to see the truth from the lie.
We are then able to make a change. With mutable signs we are able to make choices, to adopt new ways of being, to take a different path, to change the station, to adopt new thought processes.
We live and we learn.
This full moon is making a pretty close square to Neptune in Pisces. Neptune can envelope us in fog so that we can either stay lost OR we can develop our higher senses which are natural to us. We can listen to our intuition to see if what we are hearing is true or is a load of the same old rhetoric delivered by a glitzier or more on brand mouthpiece.
Trusting your natural wisdom and tools for discernment are key at this time. We will have the opportunity to deepen this connection as Neptune goes retrograde on 28 June until 3 December.
Mars and Sagittarius’s ruler, Jupiter, are both in Aries so we are going to want to make some initiatory moves – some of them out of pure instinct. Saturn is retrograde in Aquarius so factor in space and time for wild card course corrections and restructuring that may arise — perhaps seemingly unbidden — from the depths our individuated unconscious. Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, rules long term memory. With Saturn retrograde in Aquarius we may get the answer to or insight on a question we forgot we asked. That flash of unexpected awareness will, actually, be exactly on time.
Mercury has resumed forward motion and is at 00 degrees of its home sign, Gemini, at this full moon.
00 degrees of any sign is a powerful new beginning.
It is advisable to avoid picking up and ingesting the same old crap. Feed the mind and body and nervous system what is nourishing for YOU.
Only you know, in your wise system, what that is. When feeling lost in the murk, go back to basics. Remember to give the self daily pats on the back – for making the bed, for showing up for responsibilities, for making it this far in life! Seriously! Sing out in the fog and let the sound of your own voice guide you Home.
Remember what you find funny, what you find inspirational, what gives you comfort. Remember who has been kind and who has been a right prat.
Remember when you have been helpful and when you have had to apologize for being a right prat.
Honesty, openness, willingness – these three — will hold us in good stead as we navigate life on the earth plane and it’s many dimensions- physical, spiritual, mental, social, romantic, political, ecological.
We are natural beings having a natural experience.
Ask yourself at this full Moon: What would be my most natural next step? To eat a meal, take a walk, ask for wise counsel, move two miles or two thousand?
Sit with questions and let answers come- naturally — from the wisdom that resides - always – within.
Lots of love and good luck!
Luck is ruled by Sagittarius. 😊
