On July 9th, the Moon is right at home in tender Cancer and also in conjunction with the Sun, making this combination of watery tides and lunar magick, potent when heightening sensitivities, insecurities, and the wounds which triggered these emotions. While our emotional bodies may be put through overtime with this Cancerian cosmic cocktail, it is important to remember that the positives and gifts it bestows upon us is our amplified intuition, empathy, and also the ability to heal.
The prior Full Moon in Capricorn was heavy in finishing up those last touches of letting go of the toxicity in our lives which held us back from elevating to higher levels of experiences, in closing out old cycles and making way for new ones. Now, the Cancer New Moon is here to blanket us with the nurturing care needed in order to mend our wounds received during the conflicts raised during the transition, and to also bring to surface old behavioral or emotional patterns that may still be present. This is a time of identifying old codependent behaviors and things in our lives that we still cling to, which prevent us from attracting the right connections we desire within our family life, social circle, and romantic partnerships.
The Cancer New Moon reminds us to take care of our homes – our vessel, and our emotional bodies. It’s time to take that healing touch within and to nurture our inner child, to heal that mother wound, and to make our house a home; a sanctuary that brings safety, security, and comfort.
Many may feel the need to isolate themselves during this powerful New Moon, because of the uncomfortable emotions that arise from our environmental triggers, or perhaps the need to cleanse our emotional and spiritual bodies is loud, and when we ignore that call, is when our emotional nature becomes imbalanced, and we act out in ways that push others away.
It is important to create an environment where we can feel safe – within ourselves, and also environmentally. We want to be vulnerable, to let that guard down, and to open our hearts so to truly experience the deepness of intimacy that our hearts and souls crave. The intimacy we crave is healing and also caters to new cycles of experiencing healthy relationships within ourselves and others. However, the Cancer New Moon reminds us that we must first create that space from within, otherwise we will continue to repeat old cycles of relationships in which others push us away – attracting emotionally unavailable connections that remind us to keep our guards up.
This New Moon is also prominent on healing our inner child, in reminding us to nurture the wounded, neglected, and rejected child within us, which cries to be loved, nurtured, and cared for. When we do not tend to those pleas of our inner child, we attract partners that, just like said above, create cycles of lessons in bringing us back home, within ourselves, so to tend to cry of love. We cannot expect others to do this for us, we cannot search outwardly to fill a void, and we cannot drink from the cups of others, because we attract what we are in alignment with, and if our own cups are not full, then we will repeat those cycles of attracting partners with empty cups as well.
When we harbor those wounds and do not take the time to heal them, then we end up creating external needs to fill voids that we must fill for ourselves. We create a disconnection of Self and reach for things that may not be healthy – such as toxic relationships, unhealthy vices, and defense mechanisms that only cater to the disconnection of Self and aid in prolonging the healing process because of a need to escape the harshness of the pain. We may even focus more on others than ourselves, continuously pushing to heal, nurture, and to be of need because filling the voids in others, caters to a need of filling our own, only instead we are continuously pouring ourselves until we run on empty from attracting connections that have unquenchable thirsts, or that feed from our light because of being parasitical and not equal in the energy we give. The only way we can bypass these cycles of emptiness, heartbreak, and feeling unappreciated, is through coming back home to ourselves and mending the wounds of our inner child.
When we are able to do this for ourselves, is when we can finally attract others in our lives which bring the same nurturing and tenderness to us, as we pour into them. We release that sense of codependency which allows for stronger connections which open our worlds to a deeper sense of intimacy that is based off the frequency of pure and unconditional love.

The prior Super Full Moon in Capricorn really did a number in applying those finishing touches of old cycles ending with the recent string of eclipses. Many were sucked into the void, where they could bare witness to nothing but the toxicity that surrounded them, the toxicity they were enabling, and the toxicity that was growing within them as a result. This had forced a deep dose of shadow work, in reclaiming personal power by setting strict boundaries and cutting off connections that truly did not serve a higher purpose or stand in alignment with our higher selves.
This ritual is focused on releasing codependent behaviors, so to attract healthy connections with others.

You find yourself at a crossroads, in which the next move you will make is going to dictate your future from here on out. A very prominent period of growth awaits you, or another cycle focused on the same lessons as before is ready to suck you back in. The choice is yours, Aries. Changes within your career, family life, as well as any romantic partnerships are relevant now as well. What you do next will determine the outcome of these – for better or for worse. A new love potential also awaits if you happen to have separated from a previous partnership. Be very cautious though, as you do not want to bring old behaviors into something new, and you do not want to miss out on any new opportunities for growth by paying more attention to temptations. Follow your heart – listen to your intuition and focus on where the growth you need is. The next step you take will change things forever.
Pay close attention to synchronicities and signs from the Universe, as you are being divinely guided right now towards new cycles of experiences that cater to the growth you crave and need. You have been pushed into changes that you may not have been ready for, but secretly you had wanted them for a very long time. So why subject yourself to remaining in a miserable comfort zone? It’s time to spiral out of the experiences you are familiar with and to reach for something new. You are supported, guided, and will receive the help you need, most likely from an unlikely source or someone unexpected. The more you push yourself onto this new level of experience and accept the changes that are occurring, the feeling of emptiness will soon dissipate, bringing about a feeling of fullness and inspiration to flow and accept beautiful new experiences that await.
You are supported, Gemini, and you know that you have some very good people in your corner. You have a strong support system that wants nothing more than for you to grow and to achieve the goals that you treasure dearly. Have faith in yourself and have faith in the those that are helping you. Whatever you have your eyes set upon, is flowing towards you with ease, for you have all the tools, resources, and also, again, the support needed to make things happen. Someone very generous has entered your life recently, and they expect very little in return for all that they offer, for their reward is seeing you catch your rewards.
You may feel more isolated than usual, and this might be by choice, or perhaps you feel that others are leaving you out. Whatever the case, spending time with yourself is a positive right now. You need to find solace from within, to heal, and to ignite that inner light once more. You may have felt depleted for quite some time, or perhaps the background noise that others bring with them was giving you headaches and serving as a distraction from where your focus should truly be. The New Moon is right at home in your sign, and it begs for you to come back home into yourself as well. The clarity and peace of mind that you seek is within, so make some time for yourself and dive deep within. Besides, someone as empathetic as yourself needs a little down time so to recharge your batteries anyways. You do so much for others, that it is now time to do for yourself.
Love awaits, Leo. You had recently ended a huge cycle with the prior Full Moon in Capricorn, and now you are ready for something new, with a strong foundation beneath you, and a healed heart, you are ready to leap into something new that caters to the growth and higher understanding you have obtained. This may be something romantic in nature, something to do with your family life, career, or perhaps it is all connected together. Whatever the case, it is high vibrational and is going to bring a strong sense of upliftment, meaning, and fulfillment into your life. The great thing about this new experience is that is brings about a strong sense of stability, meaning that it is not going to be short lived, it is not going to be fleeting, and it is sturdy enough to build upon, so to bring about even deeper experiences within it.
You are called to release those burdens, Virgo, to get all of that heaviness off your shoulders and to place them where they belong – with those who tried to push them off on you in the first place. You need to make space for something new coming into your life, that is going to bring about the sense of fulfillment, pride, and reassurance you have craved for so long. With that said, as you set those boundaries, release those burdens, and speak your truth, you will receive signs that you are exactly where you need to be, doing exactly what you should be doing, and with that an even greater reward of something abundant, something you have been wanting for a very long time. While you love being of service, and often take more than you can handle so to help others, now it is time to help yourself and to stop enabling others to be so incredibly codependent on you. Take back your power and be ready for those blessings.
Balance is all, Libra, and no one knows that better than you. Things may have been rocky in the past, you may have experienced some very unfair circumstances, and experienced the ugliness in others that left you wounded. Perhaps you had signed some sort of contract or made an agreement with someone where you got the short end of the stick. Whatever the case, you took all of this on with grace and continued to put your best foot forward, and for that, you are going to be rewarded with the resolution you desire and deserve. You’ve done the work, and now it is time for that hard work to come to an end, to receive the rewards due, and to go onto a new cycle of experiencing the freedom you had desired for a very long time.
It is time to lead by example, Scorpio, to show others how exactly it is done. You have a natural sense of authority about you where you command respect with ease, others may even find this energy intimidating, but you know deep down that you only intimidate those who are not right for you or who do not truly serve a purpose in your life, because you refuse to water yourself down so to make others comfortable. You are entering a phase in which you will have to step up, take on more responsibility, and also apply much of the knowledge you’ve obtained from past experiences. You will also be solving old problems and applying solutions that will stick for the long-term, creating a sense of security and stability that you have sought after for quite some time. So get to it, Scorpio, walk that talk.
You are ending a very important cycle in your life and venturing onto a new one that caters to the newfound growth you have obtained. There is no turning back now, as everything is now in motion. You are excited for what awaits in the future and can’t stop dreaming of the new possibilities ahead of you. This marks a very prominent milestone in your life. You are also ready to accomplish some very important goals, to make new and meaningful connections, and to push forward further than you have gone before – embracing the future and all that is has to offer. Your success is also complimented by others who have known your struggles, expressing that you have done well, and letting you know that you have done the right thing. You are ready to set forth on a whole new chapter in your life.
The worst feeling in the world is knowing that you had invested so much of your time, energy, and even your heart into a source that only brought pain in the end. You have tried so hard to be the best version of yourself, and events may occur during the New Moon which make you feel it was all for nothing. Someone may stab you in the back, a lover may stray, or you might hear some very disappointing news. Whatever the case, this pain you feel is meant to push you away from your current path and to find a new one that will lead towards better experiences. Perhaps you have been holding on for far too long, or you have been trying to hold something together which only has been falling apart. It’s time to throw in that towel and to allow the pain to consume you, so that you do not repeat the same cycle once again. Just be sure not to allow the pain to consume you for too long – because soon new opportunities will arise, and so you need to ensure that you are able to pick yourself up again.
Your perspective is powerful, Aquarius, for you can change any situation in your life just from the way you perceive it. You might feel as if you are placed within a difficult situation, as a cycle threatens to repeat itself. However, it is important to realize that this might be the ending of a long cycle, and you now have the opportunity to change things around for the better – you can take your experiences learned from the past and apply them, so you know what to do different now. So, instead consider this a second chance to make something right, to do the right thing, and to bring about the results you had first desired. You have the power. Aquarius, you have the ability to turn any situation around.
You are entering a phase of stability, support, and security that you have craved for a very, very long time. This is going to be an experience which may change the entire direction of your life from here on out. You will have someone in your corner that extends their support so to apply solutions to old problems that bring about long-term results, allowing for you to close out that cycle and to never experience those hardships or lessons again. Anything relating to property matters, finances, or your career are also going to experience a change in direction, but for the best, so trust in the process and trust in the support that finds you.
