On June 29, 2022, at 2:52am GMT, there is a New Moon taking place in the emotional and protective sign of Cancer. Like any New Moon, this one too invites us to make a fresh start in that area of one's horoscope where it happens to fall. Presently, the sign of Cancer favors beginnings that have to do with home, family and the need for protection and emotional security. In fact, thanks to five planets being simultaneously in their home signs, the processes that begin under this New Moon help to settle several issues that have been for the past two months, if not longer.
More specifically, there is the potential to settle pending issues in terms of emotions (Moon), communications (Mercury), actions (Mars), obligations (Saturn) and dreams (Neptune) although attaining one’s ideals will not be easy (Neptune stationary in semi-sextiles with Mars and Saturn). After all, with Neptune about to turn retrograde, this New Moon ignites in us a dreamlike dimension that may even exceed the limits of daydreams, illusions and escape.
In this sense, the out-of-bounds Moon squared by Jupiter helps dreamers, artists, visionaries and all kinds of seekers to dare to come out of the trivial and use their talents even if they do not know yet exactly how (Venus in sextile with Jupiter and in semi-sextiles with the Lights).
For the more realists and technocrats among you, this New Moon may feel a bit scary and threatening due to great confusion and uncertainty (Mars-Saturn in disharmonious aspects with Neptune and Pluto). In any case, some of the dreams and ideals that are born in this period will probably need to be thwarted until the beginning of December when Neptune turns direct.
Finally, the Mercury-Chiron sextile helps to heal wounds caused by communications, although Uranus' ‘annoying’ presence in semi-sextile aspects with Mercury and Chiron makes this healing unpredictable. So, will you let yourself go with the cosmic flow under this New Moon no matter how much it bothers you or will you swim against it?
