The New Moon falls in Aries on Mon 12 April, bringing the opportunity for a bold and exciting new start.  Aries’ natural approach to life is to take action, breaking new ground in a pioneering or even crusading venture, or taking up a cause that’s worth fighting for.

Aries on FireAs a Fire sign, Aries is full of enthusiasm and focused on the future.  Aries tends to act first and think later, hence its reputation for being impulsive, so take a moment to weigh your options before jumping in feet first!

In its positive manifestation, Aries is pioneering, boldly going where no–one has gone before, carving out a new, independent path and leading the way.  Aries tends to be fearless, the kind of leader who says “Follow me!” as they race ahead.  They’re also naturally competitive and like to be first.

When manifesting negatively however, Aries can be impatient, impulsive and aggressive, often with a quick temper.  Mars, the ruler of Aries, was after all the god of War.  Aries can also be very direct, hence its reputation for foot-in-mouth bluntness.

The Goddess Venus and Lord of the Underworld Pluto are in very close contact in this New Moon chart, in a pattern that suggests the potential for abuse of power towards the Feminine, yet also with the possibility of the Feminine rising up, facing the abuse and denigration, and stepping into a new place of female empowerment.  These themes are being played out right now in political circles in Australia and the UK especially, but are a common thread of experience for women everywhere.  With Uranus the Great Awakener moving through Venus-ruled Taurus, women are finally saying enough is enough, demanding an end to the culture that oppresses women so thoughtlessly. Things may come to a head at this New Moon, so stay tuned – the tide is definitely shifting.

If your birthday falls close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life, particularly with regard to your sense of identity and purpose in life. The influence of Chiron means that this could be a significant new cycle in your own healing, or perhaps you’re at the stage where you can now bring healing into your work in some way.

New MoonThis New Moon falls at 22 degrees Aries.  If you have points in your birth chart close to this degree (within one degree) expect the part of your life associated with that planet (eg relationships for Venus) to begin a significant new cycle.

Wherever you have 22 degrees of Aries in your chart is the area of your life that will be affected by this New Moon – for example, if it falls in your 10th house, this signifies the beginning of a new cycle in your career or professional life.

The New Moon is exact at 12.30pm AEST.  Remember to set your New Moon intentions in the following 24 hrs.

March Lunar Phases & Moon Planting Guide ☘️🍃🎋

.We have the most beautiful, romantic New Moon coming this month, with Venus and Neptune enhancing the yearning for souls to merge into oneness and spiritual ecstasy – whether that’s in your spiritual practices or with a love partner.

For those of you studying Astrology seriously and looking to become qualified, I’ll be running an FAA Calculation Exam prep course starting in June – if you’re interested in joining us, let me know!

The New Moon in Pisces on Sat 13 March is the most beautiful, romantic New Moon with Venus and Neptune closely configured, enhancing the yearning for souls to merge into oneness and spiritual ecstasy – whether that’s in spiritual practices or with a love partner.

A New Moon in Pisces always signifies a renewed focus on spirituality and the desire to transcend our 3D reality. Pisces has a strong sense of divine homesickness, a spiritual longing to return to source and merge into oneness.  This New Moon is a great time to begin a new cycle of meditation and spiritual practices!

Pisces is also associated with imagination and creativity (through its Neptune rulership), and with Venus and Neptune part of this New Moon line-up, this is an excellent time to begin a new cycle of creative pursuits, such as art, photography or music, essentially anything that takes you into that right-brain space of timelessness, a highly Neptunian experience!

The downside of Pisces however, is illusion and deception, making us more gullible than usual, more prone to being deceived (and deceiving ourselves!).  Be careful of falling under some kind of spell under the influence of this New Moon – especially falling in love and only seeing the beloved through rose-coloured glasses!

The Piscean urge to transcend reality can express negatively as escapism, any kind of escapism – which in its most extreme forms can develop into addictive patterns of behaviour. This New Moon is therefore a great opportunity to begin a new cycle in any escapist tendencies (or even addictions) that you’re aware of – focus on transforming them (maybe sublimating them) into more creative or spiritual pursuits.

The New Moon in Pisces may also usher in a new cycle of compassion and the desire to help others. Just be careful that this doesn’t become an urge to rescue people.  Pisces has a tendency towards self-sacrifice in the service of others, even to the point of martyrdom, so make sure you look after yourself first, otherwise you’ll be in no position to take care of others.  There’s a fine line between helping others and rescuing them, overstepping boundaries which essentially need to be respected and strengthened.  One of the best ways to empower people is to give them the space to make their own decisions, providing the invitation for them to step into that place of self-responsibility and empowerment.

Wherever you have 23 degrees of Pisces in your chart is the area of your life that will be affected by this New Moon – for example, if it falls in your 10th house, this signifies the beginning of a new cycle in your career or professional life.

If your birthday falls close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of an important new cycle for you, especially with regard to your sense of identity and your purpose in life.

The New Moon is exact at 8.21pm Queensland time (AEST).

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.

Aquarius the water-carrier

Aquarius the water-carrier

The New Moon this month is a MEGA New Moon in Aquarius, falling on Fri 12 Feb at 23 Aquarius.  What’s so remarkable about this New Moon is that 6 of the 7 traditional planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn) are all in Aquarius at this time!!!  This is a New Moon that will pack so much Aquarian energy, waking us up to the need to focus on what’s best for humanity at the global collective level.

The New Moon in Aquarius is an opportunity to begin a new cycle in authenticity.  To what extent are you really being true to yourself?  Do you feel free to be true to yourself?  Aquarius is a sign associated with freedom, authenticity, and equality at both the individual and collective level.  It is strongly non-conformist, needing to be different and unique, free of society’s expectations, a natural rebel (I can hear all the Aquarians cheering!!!)  It is also focused on social responsibility, connection at the level of mass consciousness and global humanitarian concerns.

Aquarius is an air sign, loving to discuss and debate ideas, the more original, inventive and zany the better.  They’re also very rational, able to apply logic well to any situation and keep a detached mindset.  Aquarians are very sociable and tend to be known as the party animals of the zodiac!

The New Moon is exact at 5.05am Queensland time (AEST) which means it will fall the previous day in Europe and the Americas. Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon.

If your birthday is close to this date (within a day either side), this is the beginning of an important new cycle in your life in terms of your sense of identity and your purpose in the world.

Wherever you have 23 degrees of Aquarius in your birth chart indicates the area of life that will be most affected by this New Moon – for example, if this New Moon falls in your 10th house, this signifies the beginning of a new cycle in your career or professional life.

This is also the New Moon that marks Chinese New YearLike so many traditional cultures, the Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar.  This New Moon brings the beginning of the Chinese Lunar Year of the Ox.

🌟 Second chance for New Year’s resolutions 🌟💫

🌟 New Moon in Capricorn 2021 🌟 Second chance for New Year’s resolutions 🌟💫

New Moon in Capricorn: Wed 13 Jan 2021 at 3pm AEST at 23 degrees Capricorn

Full Moon in Leo: Fri 29 Jan 2021 at 5.16am AEST at 9 degrees Leo (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

Skywatching:  Jupiter and Saturn are visible low in the western evening sky just after sunset – but only for a couple of weeks before they disappear into the light of the Sun.
Mars the red planet is high overhead at sunset.
Venus twinkles brightly in the pre-dawn sky as the Morning Star, gradually lower each morning in the eastern sky until by the end of this lunar month, she will have disappeared into the light of the Sun.
..

A powerful New Moon falls in Capricorn on Wed 13 Jan.  This is the absolute best time to make your New Year’s resolutions for 2021 as the energy of this Capricorn New Moon gives you the self-discipline and determination to carry out the incremental steps you need to take during the year to achieve your goals.  Pluto is part of this New Moon energy, so any resolutions you set now will be especially powerful.

A New Moon always represents the beginning of a new cycle in some part of your life.  The Capricorn New Moon invites renewed focus on self-discipline, goal-setting, improving time management and introducing more structure into your life – all in the service of moving forwards on your chosen path.  Remember the image of Capricorn the goat, climbing slowly but steadily up the mountain, one step at a time, guaranteed to reach the summit.

mountain goatCapricorn is an Earth sign, grounded, sensible and practical – excellent at dealing with material reality.  The sign is ruled by Saturn, the ultimate taskmaster who sets firm boundaries, exercises self-authority and is cautious. The downside  of Capricorn (every sign has its downside) is the tendency for caution to become fear, leading in some cases to freezing (petrified means turned to stone) so that no action is taken. Saturn can also be a fierce inner critic, sowing self-doubt that can stifle those Capricorn ambitions. Caution is fine, yet make sure you continue to move forwards.  It’s time now to accept full personal responsibility for your life, and to realise that YOU are the only one who can make the necessary changes for your life to move in the direction you want.

Wherever you have Capricorn in your chart is the area of life that will be most strongly affected by this New Moon – for example, if it is in your 6th house, this is an opportunity to bring more self-discipline into your daily routine and health regime; if it falls in the 2nd, this will apply to your finances.  If you are not sure where Capricorn falls in your birth chart, think of the area of your life that could most benefit from some self-discipline right now – you’ll probably tune into it intuitively!

If your birthday is close to this New Moon (within a day either side), this marks the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If 23 degrees Capricorn is strong in your chart, or if any of your planets fall at this degree, a significant new cycle is starting in the part of your life represented by that planet, eg relationships for Venus.  You may well have had a difficult time of it over the last twelve months, as this is almost exactly the degree of the Saturn-Pluto and Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions in Jan 2020, and Pluto is still very close to this degree.  It’s as if the Universe is telling you that finally you can leave the energies of the last year behind and you can at last move forwards.

Remember to create your New Moon intentions (and your Resolutions for 2021) within 24 hours of this New Moon.  The intentions you set now will be particularly powerful because of the conjunction with Pluto.  The New Moon is exact at 3pm Queensland time (AEST).

Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius 2020

eclipseTotal Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius

.

Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius  Tues 15 Dec 2020, exact at 2.16am Queensland time (AEST) at 23 degrees Sagittarius (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

Full Moon in Cancer  Wed 30 Dec 2020, exact at 1.28pm Queensland time (AEST) at 8 degrees Cancer

Skywatching   The amazing sight of Jupiter and Saturn getting closer together in the evening sky is the real show-stealer right now!  They’re visible for a couple of hours after sunset.  Look for the slim crescent of the New Moon emerging a day or two after the solar eclipse – you’ll see the Moon very close to Jupiter and Saturn – below them on Wed 16 Dec, and just above them on Thurs 17 Dec, visible till about 8.30pm when Jupiter and Saturn set.  Mars the red planet is high in the sky during the evening.   Venus twinkles brightly in the pre-dawn sky as the Morning Star.

 ..

These are hugely momentous times we’re living in, and this month is absolutely extraordinary as we move into a new 800-year epoch with the Great Mutation of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on 22 Dec (AEST) – see separate blogpost.

We still have two weeks to go in this current eclipse season – remember to be especially careful as accidents and other mishaps are so  much more common at eclipse time.  Be mindful and stay present!

Do you need to understand the higher purpose of what’s happening in your life right now?  A Personal Insight Astrology Consultation with me provides clarity, insight and guidance, enabling you to transform the challenges you’re facing.  Learn how you can work WITH the Universe!  Book your session now.

Sagittarius, the archer

The New Moon in Sagittarius is a total solar eclipse, visible over the southern part of Chile and Argentina – but even when we can’t actually see it, we certainly feel it!!!

The Solar Eclipse New Moon falls in the early morning of Tues 15 Dec AEST (the previous day in Europe and the Americas).  A solar eclipse is an intensified new beginning in some part of your life, so find where it falls in your chart at 23 Sagittarius and tune into the new departure starting for you now.

An eclipsed New Moon in Sagittarius brings a strong burst of enthusiasm for adventure and exploration, as well as the need to enjoy life to the full.  This is a perfect time to start on a spiritual quest, a course of study or overseas travel (if that’s allowed!!!) – anything that expands your horizons. The travel can of course be internal – a spiritual journey, to the truth of who you are.

Sagittarius is a Fire sign, warm and enthusiastic, naturally optimistic and with an undying trust in the Universe.  Sagittarians love to explore and go on adventures, not just for the fun of it, but because they’re also motivated by a quest to discover the meaning of life. Their sign is ruled by Jupiter, which gives them their boundless enthusiasm and confidence – and on the downside (every sign has its downside), a tendency to go over the top, take lots of risks and over-extend themselves, not knowing when or where to stop.

If your birthday is close to this eclipsed New Moon (within a day either side), this marks the beginning of an intensely significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If you have a planet at 23 degrees of Sagittarius, this marks the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet symbolizes (eg relationships for Venus).  Donald Trump has his Moon (representing home and emotions) close to this degree – a new beginning indeed!

Your New Moon intentions will be especially powerful this month with the eclipsed New Moon.  Create your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the eclipsed New Moon, which is exact at 2.16am AEST (Queensland time).

Mars 2Mars will have just turned direct by this New Moon, a huge relief!  Projects that have stalled can now move forwards again and we can finally regain a sense of momentum.  Yay!!!  (Read more about Mars direct)
 
We’re moving into eclipse season now with this New Moon in Scorpio, beginning the two-week lead-up to the Lunar eclipse at the end of Nov.  The eclipse season covers six weeks: two weeks before the first eclipse, the two weeks between the two eclipses, and two weeks afterwards.  This 6-week period is a time when we need to be especially careful and stay really present and conscious, as accidents and other mishaps are much more common at this time.  Be mindful and take extra care!
 .

New Moon

The New Moon falls in Scorpio on Sun 15 Nov 2020 signalling the beginning of a major new cycle in self-empowerment and relating to others in a deep and passionate way.  The sign of Scorpio is associated with rebirth – or more accurately with all stages in the three-fold journey of transformation: death, the passage through the underworld and then the rebirth, rising like the phoenix from the ashes of the old self.  Scorpio represents the capacity for intense transformation and is the ultimate survivor.

Scorpio is Water sign, sensitive and feeling things at a very deep level.  Scorpios are very loyal and dependable.  The sign is ruled by the planet Pluto which gives them their characteristic intensity, and they are finely attuned to power issues, with a kind of X-ray vision that tells them who’s to be trusted (and who’s not).  They will carry secrets to the grave, and so have a natural talent for confidentiality.  When manifesting negatively though, they can be ruthless and power-hungry.  You really don’t ever want to cross a Scorpio – like the scorpion, they are famous for that sting in their tail!

Mercury falls opposite Uranus in this New Moon chart, suggesting that there could be some surprises or upsets, some secret information revealed at this time.

If your birthday is close to this New Moon (within a day either side), this marks the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If you have a planet or chart point at 23 degrees Scorpio, this marks the beginning of a new cycle for you in whatever that planet symbolises (eg relationships for Venus).

Remember to create your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 3.07pm Queensland time (AEST).

The eclipse season begins at this New Moon, and things will start to intensify as we move towards the lunar eclipse at the end of Nov.  Take extra care during the six-week eclipse season, ie the two weeks leading up to the first eclipse, the two weeks between the eclipses, and the two weeks after the second eclipse.  Remember eclipses often bring unexpected change into our lives, so take extra care during this period!!

New Moon in Libra 2020

 

New MoonNew Moon in Libra 2020

 

 

New Moon in Libra  Sat 17 Oct 2020, exact at 5.30am Queensland time (AEST) at 23 degrees Libra (the previous day in Europe and the Americas).

Jupiter & Saturn can be seen almost overhead at sunset.


October Lunar Phases & Moon Planting Guide

*


T
here’s lots of tension in the air right now as this New Moon challenges the Capricorn cluster of Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, with the added confrontation of Mars retro in the action.  This New Moon is likely to activate the longer-term machinations of this cluster, so be prepared for some significant developments on the world stage – and in your personal life too if you’ve got any planets between 19 and 25 degrees of the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn). 

On top of that, Mercury has just turned retro, so there’s the added annoyance of techno and other glitches, like an online order I just placed that – when the confirmation email came through – is mysteriously going to my old address!  I mean, how does that even happen???  It’s definitely a time to be practising patience and taking a long breath ….

*

The New Moon falls in Libra on Sat 17 Oct, starting a new cycle in your relationships and connections with others.  With contacts to the Capricorn cluster and Mars, it encourages you to stand your ground while bringing a renewed emphasis on the need for fairness in all aspects of your life.  Libra is the sign of the born diplomat, the mediator who can always see both sides of any issue and wants the result to be harmonious. The symbol for Libra after all is the scales, where things can be weighed and balanced.

This New Moon in Libra is a good time to focus on restoring balance in your life, consolidating the theme of the Equinox last month by implementing whatever changes are required to bring your life back into balance and harmony (see last month’s newsletter or my blog if you need to revisit the info on the Equinox).

LibraLibra is an Air sign, sociable and communicative, with a huge need for fairness.  It’s also one of the leadership signs, but its point of difference is that it doesn’t need to be out front – quite the contrary. The leadership style of Libra is inclusive and co-operative, making Libra an excellent leader.  The challenge however for Libra is decision-making!  They are so good at seeing all sides of the question that reaching a final decision can be agony for them, especially when they’re trying to keep everyone happy.  Because they hate disharmony, people-pleasing is often one of their main issues, not helped by their reluctance to confront and tackle any problem areas.  Embracing more of the assertiveness of their opposite sign Aries can be really helpful. This New Moon is likely to provide you with an opportunity to stand up for yourself and stand your ground, in a nice Libran way of course.  Remember it’s all in the interests of fairness.

If your birthday is close to this New Moon, this marks the beginning of a significant new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

If you have planets at 23 degrees of Libra (within a degree either side), this marks the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet symbolises (eg responsibility for Saturn).

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of this New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 5.30am Queensland time (AEST) at 23 degrees Libra.  If you’re in Europe or the Americas, the New Moon will fall the previous day Fri 16 Oct, so adjust for your time zone.

New Moon in Virgo 2020

New Moon in Virgo 2020: Great energies for Spring Cleanse

 

New Moon in Virgo  Thurs 17 Sept 2020, exact at 9.00pm Queensland time (AEST) at 25 degrees Virgo

Full Moon in Aries  Fri 2 Oct 2020, exact at 7.05am Queensland time (AEST) at 9 degrees Aries (the previous day in Europe and the Americas)

Skywatching  Venus twinkles brightly in the pre-dawn eastern sky as the Morning Star.  Mars the red planet rises in the late evening and is in the western sky by sunrise. Jupiter & Saturn can be seen almost overhead at sunset.

*

We have some very supportive energies around at the start of this lunar month, with the New Moon in Virgo supported by Saturn, and the balancing energies of the Equinox.  There’s a lot of Mars influence though, with Mars now retro in Aries and the Full Moon this month also in Aries, the sign that Mars rules.   Add to that Pluto is stationing, so it’s a bit of a powder keg!

I hope you’re going well through these challenging times.  Remember Mars will continue retro till mid-Nov, so this energy is with us for a while, demanding that we consciously exercise more patience.  If you need to recap the energies of Mars retro see last month’s newsletter or my blog.

*

The New Moon in Virgo on Thurs 17 Sept 2020 is likely to introduce changes to the way we approach our everyday life.  This is an excellent time to start a new health regime, go on a diet or go on a cleanseYou’ll be supported in this by the easy sense of discipline that’s available with this New Moon because of the close beneficial connection to Saturn.The energy flow with a Virgo New Moon is to do anything that brings a new sense of order into your life ….. If you’re thinking of de-cluttering your house, this New Moon provides perfect timing, and may even demand it of you!!   If you’re feeling an unusually strong urge to spring-clean and tidy up the place, you won’t be alone!  Virgo loves order more than anything, a place for everything and everything in its place.

Virgo is an Earth sign, cautious and practical, taking its time to create the order which it loves. It has a tendency towards perfectionism and is excellent at attention to detail.  The challenge for Virgo is not getting lost in the details and therefore losing sight of the overall vision, the classic state of “can’t see the wood (forest) for the trees”.  It’s great to be on top of the details, but remember to keep them in context.

This New Moon is exactly trine Saturn, grounding this New Moon even further and providing a sense of stability.  This is a great time to embrace responsibility and become more disciplined in some area of your life.

With Mercury in an exact square to Jupiter at this New Moon, you’re likely to feel challenged to speak your truth, particularly to speak truth to power.  I’m reminded of the former White House staff member who went on CNN recently with tales of what it was really like working for Donald Trump – he said he’d already received a number a of death threats as a result of speaking out.  But his point was, and he was speaking as a Republican, we all have a responsibility to speak truth to power.  Silence is consent.

If your birthday is close to this New Moon, this marks the beginning of a new cycle in your life in terms of your identity and your sense of purpose.

Remember to set your New Moon intentions within 24 hours of the New Moon. The New Moon is exact at 9.00pm Queensland time (AEST) at 25 degrees Virgo.

New Moon in Leo 2020 – Slow down & exercise patience!

Leo, the lion

New Moon in Leo 2020

New Moon in Leo  Wed 19 Aug 2020, exact at 12.41pm Queensland time (AEST) at 26 degrees Leo

Full Moon in Pisces  Wed 2 Sept 2020, exact at 3.21pm Queensland time (AEST) at 10 degrees Pisces

Skywatching   Venus twinkles brightly in the eastern sky before sunrise as the Morning Star. Mars the red planet rises before midnight and is overhead by sunrise. Jupiter & Saturn can be seen in the east at sunset, both very bright and they move higher in the sky as the night progresses.

We’re in the lead-up to Mars retro now, and you may well be experiencing a sense of things slowing, and resistance to any forward movement increasing! Mars doesn’t go retro very often, only once every two years, so this is even more unusual than the Venus retro period we had earlier this year.  The key is to practise patience, as life seems to thwart our every attempt at moving forwards.  So slow down willingly, listen to the Universe and use the time wisely to review and redesign – it might not take much, maybe just a few tweaks here and there – but this is an opportunity to revisit your decisions and your actions.  Use this period wisely, and make sure you don’t blow a fuse!  [for details of Mars retro, see the separate blogpost]

The New Moon in Leo on Wed 19 Aug 2020 brings a renewed sense of fun and enthusiasm for life. This is a perfect time to re-energize and revitalize.  Leo is ruled by the Sun and this sign has all the life-giving qualities of the Sun, inspiring others with its radiant warmth, energy and passion.  Warm-hearted and generous, Leo is the royalty of the zodiac, confident and regal with a flair for the dramatic, so don’t be surprised to find a Leo centre-stage.  Fire signs need to have plenty of fun, and Leos love this to be in lavish grand style. This New Moon represents the opportunity to begin a new cycle in your enthusiasm for life and your creativity – whatever inspires you and ignites your passion.

If your birthday falls close to the date of this New Moon, this marks an important year of new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your identity, your sense of self and your purpose in life.

The New Moon falls at 26 degrees of Leo. If you have planets close to this point (within one degree) this marks the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet represents, for example relationships for Venus.

Remember to put out your intentions for this lunar month within 24 hours of the New Moon.  The New Moon is exact at 12.41pm AEST.

How did you go with last month’s Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer?  That was a strong cosmic invitation for us to let go of the past,  release old hurts and bring forgiveness into our hearts.  Well guess what? Just in case you didn’t do that as well as you could have, we’re being given a second chance this month with the second New Moon in Cancer on Tues 21 July (Mon 20 July in Europe and the Americas).

This New Moon is at 28 degrees Cancer, and with the opposition to Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, a lot of emotions may have been stirred up this week which we might not feel comfortable expressing, or even allowing.  At the collective level, this may see a resurgence of demonstrations.  This New Moon is in exact opposition to Saturn, so we’re likely to see repression of these energies, or in the case of demonstrations, some tough crackdowns.

It’s very unusual to have two consecutive New Moons in the same zodiac sign, and it’s only possible because the first was at zero degrees of Cancer and this one is at 28 degrees.  If this were a Full Moon, it’d be called a Blue Moon – but as it’s a New Moon, we can only (unofficially!) call it a “Blue New Moon” ha ha!

We looked in detail last month at the meaning of New Moon in Cancer.  This second New Moon in Cancer brings us another opportunity for us to begin, or perhaps consolidate,  a new cycle in our relationship to the Feminine.  This also applies to the way we care for others, as well as the way we nurture ourselves.

Cancer is a water sign, sensitive and emotional, with a strong need for emotional security. This is the sign associated with home and family, so this second New Moon marks a repeated shift in our sense of belonging, maybe a new phase in our home and family life, or our sense of belonging to a ‘tribe’.

Cancer has a tenacious connection to the past – Cancerians have strong emotional attachments and don’t like to let go of anything!  The second New Moon in Cancer reminds us it’s time to break with the past, and emotionally release whatever no longer serves us.

bottlebrush, letting go of the past, New Moon in Cancer

As with last month’s eclipsed New Moon in Cancer, this is a great time for Forgiveness ceremonies, releasing you from the energetic attachments to your past.  Thyme essential oil and the Australian Bush Flower Essence Bottlebrush are particularly good remedies for supporting you to let go – contact me if you’d like to order some.

If your birthday falls close to the date of this New Moon, this marks a year of new beginnings in your life, particularly with regard to your identity, your sense of self and your purpose in life.

If you have planets close to 28 degrees Cancer (within one degree), this represents the beginning of a new cycle in whatever that planet symbolizes (eg relationships for Venus).

The New Moon is exact at 3.32am Queensland time (AEST).  Remember to set your New Moon intentions within the following 24 hours.
