Monday, JULY 20
The Moon continues in Cancer until 4:17 PM EDT when it enters Leo. The New Moon occurs in the sign of Cancer today at 1:34 PM and is the second New Moon in Cancer this year (the first was a Solar Eclipse on June 21st). A New Moon brings a fresh start, and there can be some sense of urgency to make a quick decision or to end a matter so we can move forward. It’s a time for feeding our foundation — all of that which we call “home,” including the foundation we have built inside of ourselves. It’s also a time for recognizing the importance of our family and our personal circle of friends and the security, sense of belonging, and safety we derive from them.
Also today, a Sun-Saturn opposition occurs. This transit has a little more power as it occurs close to the time of the New Moon. We can experience a reality check, likely related to our work, responsibilities, or the rules, in general. Feelings of doubt, pessimism, or guilt may undermine our confidence until we make corrections. Feeling blocked, encountering obstacles to progress, and inhibitions are all possible under this influence. While there can be a letdown, our efforts to measure up to expectations can ultimately increase confidence in our ability to be responsible for ourselves. Focusing too much on our feelings may not be very productive right now. This is a time for reevaluating goals, taking into better account the limits of time and energy. It can be a good time for developing real solutions to long-term problems and for recognizing the meaning behind recent restrictions or limitations. We might acknowledge the need to adopt a humbler, more mature, and possibly more conservative approach. We might also need to catch up on neglected duties or responsibilities.
The void Moon occurs from 1:56 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to Saturn), until the Moon enters Leo at 4:17 PM EDT.
