On July 20, 2020, at 11:33 am MDT, we’ll be blessed with a second New Moon in Cancer of the year. The first one brought a Solar Eclipse at zero degrees on June 20, 2020, the Summer Solstice, when we celebrated the longest day and shortest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
Cancer symbolizes new life and anything in its realm is destined to grow. It is ruled by the Moon, and invested in nourishment, security and love. Emotional sensitivity is abundant, family is paramount and mothering instincts are fierce.
Here is what nourishment, growth and love looked like in the natural world on that sacred Summer Solstice day ~
July’s New Moon arrives at 28 degrees of Cancer and forms an exact opposition to Saturn and looser ones to Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn. It implores us to stop defending rigid beliefs and structures built on them when their time is clearly over. It also forms a loose trine to Neptune in Pisces, where compassion is abundant and spiritual mastery flourishes.
This second New Moon cycle in Cancer offers the gift of time; it feels as if we’re being given a second chance. Cancer is associated with birth while Capricorn has to do with time and maturity. The fact that we are blessed with not one, but two New Moon cycles in Cancer this year is remarkable, and this New Moon’s opposition to the Capricorn stellium of Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto confirms that it is indeed time.
~ It is time to let go of conditioning that holds us back and separates us from each other.
~ It is time to to plant what we want to grow – individually and collectively.
~ It is time to nourish life with tender attention and care.
~ It is time for living life in a way that gives birth to love.
Here is how that showed up in Nature today ~
May we turn toward love and embody what the natural world shows us everyday.
With great blessings of love, light and peace, always.
