New Moon in Cancer

General Predictions for the New Moon in Cancer:

On July the 17th, at 18:32 UT, the Moon meets the Sun, in Cancer, forming the New Moon.

During this waxing Moon period, about two hours after the moment of the New Moon, the True Lunar Nodes change their zodiacs, entering the Aries-Libra axis. The Lunar Nodes did that on the 12th. Also, the Sun enters Leo, on the 23rd. Then, Mercury enters Virgo, on the 28th. Furthermore, on the 23rd of July, at 01:33 UT, Venus turns Retrograde. On the same day, at 12:42 UT, Chiron does the same. That’s a total of five retrograde planets, four Major ones and Chiron. This is a strong Retrograde activity and it will continue practically until the end of the year.

Therefore, the planetary scenery changes enough and quite significantly so.

The inauspicious aspects of the New Moon:

Venus squares Uranus. The aspect became accurate on the 2nd of July and got activated on the 18th of June. It will remain active until the 28th of August. The square will become accurate for a second time on the 9th of August, while Venus will be Retrograde. Amongst else, this can bring some problems in our love and social life. Online social activity and dating, even more so. Expenses also need some moderation. Even given that, they might exceed our expectations, in some cases.

Things can become even more challenging, after the 23rd of July, when Venus will be Retrograde. Moreover, the aspect will be reactivated again, on the 11th of September, and it will remain active until the 11th of October. Then, Venus will be Direct, but Uranus will be Retrograde.

Also, the Sun opposes Pluto. Accurately so, on the 22nd of the month. The aspect is active since the 13th of July and it will remain so until the Full Moon of the 1st of August. Amongst else, this aspect can stress our emotional condition and emotional health. It can also put some stress on financial matters.

Mercury squares Jupiter. Accurately so, on the day of this New Moon, the 17th of July. The square, though, got activated on the 12th of July. It will remain active until the 24th of the month. Amongst else, this aspect can bring some challenges in our social life. Work related social activity, as well as jobs depending on travelling and good social skills also receive some stress.

Similarly, the Sun starts squaring Jupiter. The square will become accurate on the 7th of August. The aspect, though, will be active from the 27th of July and until the 18th of August. Therefore, it won’t affect us much during this fortnight. During the period of influence of this square, depending on good luck is not advisable. Also, business and financial matters need a more careful handling.

Also, Mercury squares Uranus. Accurately so, on the 23rd of July. The aspect, though, will be active from the 18th of July and until the 30th of the month. Amongst else, this square can stress our social interactions, both for personal and professional reasons. Also, jobs depending on the internet, or technology can face some extra challenges. Our computers, smartphones and the like can also act oddly, or malfunction.

Moreover, Mercury opposes Saturn. Accurately so, on the 2nd of August. The aspect, though, will be active from the 27th of July and until the 10th of August. Amongst else, this aspect can bring some tension in our social life. Some misunderstandings might also occur. Also, health issues need a more careful approach.

Keep in mind that the aspect will be reactivated from the 8th of September and it will then remain active until the 23rd of September. During that period, the aspect won’t become accurate, or even strong enough, but until the 16th of September, as both planets will be Retrograde, it might feel its influences more strongly than we would normally do.

Similarly, Mars, too, opposes Saturn. Accurately so, on the 20th of the month. The aspect, though, is active from the 6th of July and until the 4th of August. These two difficult planets stressing each other can always be troublesome. Be extra careful while driving, as well as while engaging in dangerous activities. Also, health needs some extra care under the influences of this aspect. Keeping a calmer mind and attitude is also advisable.

The auspicious aspects of the New Moon:

Neptune’s years-long hexagon with Pluto is already almost perfect. In fact, from the 28th of June and until the 3rd of October its deviation will remain under 2°, making it near-perfect. Moreover, the hexagon will remain very strong until the 27th of November. During this period, it will reach its peak between the 7th and the 23rd of August, when its deviation from accuracy will be 1° and 24’-25’. As we’ve said, although this hexagon will be becoming stronger and weaker many times, without ever losing most of its strength, it won’t become accurate again until the 24th of July 2026. By then, though, both planets will have changed their zodiacs.

Amongst else, this hexagon empowers magic and helps us heal our souls, and our relationships. Physical healing, and especially via traditional methods, also receives some help. Progress in medicine and pharmacology, in a global level can receive support, too.

Also, the Sun forms a hexagon with Uranus. The aspect became accurate on the 14th of July, and started affecting us on the 5th of July. It will continue doing so until the 25th of the month. Amongst else, this hexagon, can support online jobs and businesses. It’s also a good period for purchasing high-tech equipment.

Moreover, the Sun forms a triangle with Neptune. Accurately so, on the 20th of July. The aspect, though is active from the 11th of July and until the 30th of the month. Amongst else, this aspect can shine some light in our otherwise troubled emotional condition. It can also help us heal and improve our personal relationships.

Also, Mars forms a triangle with Jupiter. Accurately so on the day of the Full Moon of the 1st of August. The aspect, though, is active since the 13th of July and until the 20th of August. Amongst else, this aspect can help us achieve significant progress with all our goals, as it raises our determination, and brings in some good luck. This is a triangle. Therefore, it rarely has negative side effects, but, just in case, make sure you don’t get too over-confident and reckless, as well as you don’t over-exhaust yourselves.

Venus’s conjunction with Mars lives its last days. This aspect got activated on the Full Moon of the 4th of June. It will remain active until the 24th of July, right after Venus turns Retrograde. Nonetheless, the aspect won’t become accurate. From the 2nd of July and until the 4th of July, it reached a peak and its deviation during those days was 3° 28’, therefore, quite strong, but still not too strong. Moreover, from the 20th of June and until the 13th of July, its deviation remained under the 5°, making it significantly strong. Hence, during this fortnight, it will be weak, until it stops affecting us. Informatively, this is the only conjunction the two planets will form in 2023. Next time they’ll meet, it will be in Aquarius, on the 22nd of February 2024.

2023 is not a very helpful year for the two lovers. On January they had a very short-lived triangle, with Mars, then, being Retrograde for most of the period of the triangle’s activity. After that, they had a hexagon – a not as strong aspect – in late February until late March. Later in the year, they’ll have another hexagon. This one will be a very long-lived one, affecting us from the 1st of September and until the 5th of November, but, although it will remain in a near-perfect state for a long time, it won’t become accurate. Nonetheless, during most of the period of this hexagon’s activity, we’ll be in the Ecliptic Period. Of course, we’ll see that one, when its time comes.

Those two planets in a beneficial aspect support social and love life. The latter, more so. They can also support beautification and improving our body’s health and appearance. Although this time the aspect won’t become too strong, we’ll probably see its effects in our lives.

Also, Venus conjuncts Mercury, too. Accurately so, on the 27th of July, when Venus will already be Retrograde. The aspect, though, will be active from the 22nd of July and until the 2nd of August. Normally, Venus’ and Mercury’s conjunctions last for quite some time, but this time Mercury is at almost full speed, while Venus is almost stationary and Retrograde, so this is a very short-lived aspect. Due to Venus being Retrograde for the whole period of this aspect’s activity, the conjunction might not be as auspicious as it would normally be, but, nonetheless, it can help love and social life, health matters, as well as financial matters.

Informatively, the next and last aspect for 2023 these two planets will form will be a hexagon, which will be active from the 26th of October and until the 18th of December. Not only this hexagon will last for a much longer period than normal, due to Mercury slowing down and finally turn Retrograde for the last few days, while Venus will be in normal speed, but, also, it will become accurate twice, while both planets are Direct (the second time, just a day before Mercury turns Retrograde), and it will remain very strong for a very long time.

Also, Jupiter forms a hexagon with Saturn. The aspect became accurate on the 19th of June, right after Saturn turned Retrograde. The hexagon, though, got activated on the 13th of May and it will remain active until the 13th of August.

Informatively, later in the year, on the 4th of November, the aspect will get reactivated. Then, it will remain active until the 17th of May 2024. Nonetheless, during that time, it won’t become accurate, but for a very long period it will be near accurate. Indeed, from the 6th of January until the 11th of March its deviation will remain under the 2°, while from the 24th of January until the 20th of February it will be under 1°. In other words, it will then be in an almost-perfect condition for a longer period than it’s significantly strong (a deviation under 5°) during this time.

This is a very beneficial aspect that, amongst else, it can help us manifest our wises. It is a hexagon, therefore, it’s more likely to support our efforts than to bring lucky events on its own, but the latter isn’t impossible. Especially when (before it becomes accurate, as well as in 2024) both planets will be direct. Moreover, this aspect can support meditation and, even more so, meditative techniques to manifest wises.

Finally, Jupiter conjuncts Uranus. The aspect will be active from the 22nd of July and until the of the 23rd of October. It will be reactivated in middle February 2024, and then last until middle June. During 2023, though, the aspect won’t become accurate. Not even significantly strong. In fact, it will remain quite weak. Nonetheless, it can support all kind of jobs and businesses related to internet and technology. It’s not a strong support, but it lasts for a long period of time, so we are likely to feel it, assuming that we are doing our best on the field.

Summarising:

So, overall, this is a somewhat challenging New Moon and waxing Moon period. The stressful and beneficial planetary aspects are practically balanced. The beneficial ones are slightly more, but the stressful ones are more focused. Moreover, retrograde activity raises significantly. Therefore, this is not a bad, but certainly more difficult fortnight than the previous ones.

Pluto is slightly less charged and less stressed than during the previous fortnight, but now Saturn is more stressed. Partly from Mars, too, which, as we’ve seen, it’s a difficult aspect. Moreover, almost all the support Saturn used to have up until the previous fortnight, now has stopped. Other than Jupiter’s but, even this is a much weaker support. Therefore, our emotional condition, our patience and our mental clarity all are challenged and the better we support them the better this fortnight will be.
