This post will be some general information on the Cancer New Moon, as well as some more personalized information for each Rising or Ascendant sign. As always the tip jars are at the end. I appreciate you all, and for those who do tip, I hope it finds it way back to you a hundredfold. ❤

The Cancer New Moon will be about setting intentions in whatever area it falls into within your chart. It happens on January 9th at 18 degrees. If there are any planets in your chart at or near that degree this could be more powerful for you than most. This is about planting the seeds of a new beginning in a specific area of your life that needs it.

Remember, before last May the North Node was in Cancer for some time. This was putting a spotlight there. As humans we often fall off and back on the wagon of whatever it is we’re trying to improve. This offers you a really fresh start with some powerful energy behind it.

I’m not asking any of you to be openly vulnerable with others if you’re not ready for that. What I am asking you is to be vulnerable with yourself. What you cannot offer yourself you cannot offer anyone else. Aren’t you tired of shallow connections that never really do fill the void? No outside connection will ever be better than the connection you have to self.

I know many of you are afraid to be yourselves. To open up and let people see the real you. It’s very exposing and why most people say it’s weakness. Of course, the real weakness is pretending to be something you’re not because you aren’t courageous enough to face rejection and judgment.

This Cancer New Moon is challenging our stability and security. The things we think make us feel safe and secure often don’t. The truth is there is no safety and security that any of us are guaranteed, and that truth is difficult. So, we bury our heads in the sand and pretend acceptance is security and safety.

This New Moon is asking you to release yourself from false senses of stability and security and embrace inner safety. So often we punish and reward ourselves as an automatic response, when either can be detrimental. No one ever deserves punishment.

What you need is the discipline to sit with and work through the shame you feel when you do something wrong, and stop projecting it out into the world…
