Cancer August 2021

Cancer August 2021

You can expect a busy month ahead. This is because there are a stack of planets in earth sign Virgo. Action planet Mars is here all month, the planet of relating Venus is here until the 16th. Plus, talk planet Mercury is in Virgo from the 11th to the 30th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd.

Virgo rules communication in your horoscope. This is about your daily commute and what you do in life day in, day out.

Virgo rules your siblings and neighbours, your local community and it’s often a period of the year when you’re busier than usual. You might be ferrying family back and forth or be dealing with a lot of correspondence in your place of work.

When planets are in Virgo, it’s a good time to get organised and structure your life. Put daily habits in place that benefit your mind, body and spirit. Manage your time well and see how you can effectively utilise the time you spend commuting or your lunch hour or other key areas in the day.

Social Vibes

This is also a good time for making new friends. Virgo is one of the social sectors of your horoscope and this feels lively, whether you’re meeting friends close to home, catching up with neighbours or siblings or you join a new group, club or society.

Uranus, the planet of surprises, is also in action in Taurus and your friendship sector on the 3rd, 20th & 22nd. Say yes to any invitations that come your way on or around these dates.

This whole period feels positive for social get-togethers, learning and experiencing more. You might become a student this month and start a new course. Or, you step into a teaching role and pass on what you know.

Do things differently and don’t stick to the tried and tested. Uranus rules innovation, so this is about new ideas, technology and new ways of thinking. Be around friends who excite you, friends who are alternative or look at life from a different perspective.

Brainstorm ideas, write things down and express yourself in the written word. It’s potentially a creative period of the year for you. Notice what happens on or around the 20th, when Uranus switches direction.

Money Highlights

Money is a key area in your life all month, especially during the New Moon on the 8th and the Full Moon on the 22nd. The Sun is in Leo and the sector of your horoscope that rules your money until the 22nd.

The first week of August could highlight where any financial issues lie but resolve to start afresh on the New Moon in Leo, which falls on the 8th. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and a great time to set your intentions for the month ahead.

There’s a tradition of writing an abundance cheque to yourself on the New Moon. State how much you want or need to earn by the time of the Full Moon on the 22nd and offer it up to the universe.

Then, make a wish when you first catch sight of the crescent moon on the 9th or 10th. There’s magic in cosmic law if you’re willing to engage with it. The current lunations highlight your money sectors so make the most of them.

Events could peak around the Full Moon on the 22nd, which pulls in lucky Jupiter now back in Aquarius and your joint finance sector. This would be a good date for a celebration, to treat yourself or the ones you love. Or, you may find that money comes your way via a gift or third party.

You may be proud of someone close to you around the Full Moon, someone who’s doing well and is appreciative of what’s happening in your life. There’s a flow of planetary energy which suggests that what you give you receive in return.

If you’re a typical Sun Cancer, you’re caring and kind and do a lot for other people. Your loving nature may be rewarded this month in more ways than one. It might be financial or emotional, i.e. help or care that’s needed.

Home & Family Priorities

Libra is the star sign at the base of your horoscope ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from. This is where you find balance and harmony in your life.

Once Venus returns to Libra on the 16th, retreat to your home, your nest, your loved ones if you’re feeling unbalanced. If you need to restore harmony or order at home, make this a priority in the second half of the month.

It would be a good time to consider your surroundings and where you live, whether you want to redecorate or find a new home.

As a Sun Cancer, you create family wherever you are, so this isn’t only about blood relatives but people dear to your heart, your employees or the people you work alongside.

Aries Horoscope August 2021

Aries August 2021

Your ruling planet Mars is in earth sign Virgo all month which requires a hard-work ethic, a ‘head down, bum up’ attitude.

As soon as August begins, this is the ideal time to tweak your routine, add some healthy habits to your lifestyle and focus on getting things done.

Order & Efficiency

Virgo is the sign of order so it’s an excellent month for tidying and sorting and bringing form and structure to your life. If you’re a list-maker, crack on. If you like spreadsheets to show how you’re doing, create a new one.

This is the ideal time to analyse and strategise and ensure you’re getting the results you want. As a fire sign, you’re great at leaping into something new. You’re not always as efficient at seeing things through to completion or checking out what’s working and what’s not.

Also, if you’re true to your star sign, you fare best when you’re physically strong and this is an excellent month to hone your fitness and boost your health.

It would be a good time to train for a physical challenge or incorporate regular exercise in to your routine. Think about your eating habits too and whether you want to try something new.

Teamwork & Partnership

Also this month, it’s a good idea to find your allies and team up with other people. The planet of relating Venus is in Virgo until the 16th and communication planet Mercury is here too from the 11th to the 30th.

Working alongside other people will be more enjoyable than going it alone. You’re an independent soul by nature but teamwork is not only fun but more effective too.

The Sun’s move into Virgo on the 22nd confirms that this is a month to pay close attention to your work & routine, your lifestyle & health.

Money Moves

There may be another reason why work is foreground this month and that’s money. Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, is currently in Taurus and your personal money sector.

Uranus connects with key planets in Virgo on the 3rd, 20th & 22nd. This includes your ruling planet Mars on the last date. Trust your luck on or around these key dates.

This could be another reason why work is prominent, because it brings financial reward. Alternatively, there’s a theme of being of service to others.

Fire Sign Fun

August is traditionally Leo season and the Sun is shining bright in your fellow fire sign until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury is here until the 11th and there’s a stunning New Moon in Leo on the 8th.

New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings, a chance to start over and turn to a fresh page. They are ideal for setting your intentions, being pro-active in life and moving forward. This New Moon could herald the birth of a child, the start of a gorgeous love affair, a prize, a gift, a unique moment in your life.

Leo rules a lucky sector of your horoscope, also romance, children and pregnancy, entertainment, creative projects and social get-togethers.

There is a proviso, however, because during the New Moon, there’s a clash with Uranus, the planet of change and surprises. Plus, Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus on the 20th and this may coincide with some financial ups and downs.

Think freedom when it comes to money and reconsider what security means to you. Be prepared for the unexpected financially but also know that you could win big.

Uranus is rarely stable and steady. Instead, it’s a planet that has a roller-coaster theme and you’re wise to be flexible and adaptable around money matters.

Full Moon Aquarius

There’s a second Full Moon in Aquarius on the 22nd and there are repeat themes to the Full Moon on July 24th.

This Full Moon is a perfect date for a celebration, catching up with old or new friends and reconnecting with children. Big planet Jupiter is involved, also in Aquarius, a symbol of a large gathering or fun event.

As your partner planet Venus is in Libra by this point and your relationship sector – it moves here on the 16th – there’s more than one nod towards this potentially being a romantic month for you.

Taurus Horoscope August 2021

Taurus August 2021

A host of planets are in your fellow earth sign Virgo throughout August. Action planet Mars is here all month, your planet Venus is here until the 16th. Add to this talk planet Mercury from the 11th to the 30th and the Sun from the 22nd and it’s a busy sector of your horoscope.

This is potentially good news for you as you are one of the sensual, fertile, creative earth signs and you’re likely to feel in your element.

Positive Vibes

The crackle of change continues to fizzle strongly in your horoscope. Yet ideally, you’re happiest when life feels stable and secure, you can move at a leisurely pace and smell the roses.

Virgo rules ones of the best sectors of your horoscope which is about good times and luck. This planetary vibe feels positive for you.

It’s a glorious season to fall in love, make a baby, be proud of your offspring, enjoy yourself, line up top entertainment, start a new hobby or creative project. Think about what you can ‘give birth to’ or bring into the world. Now’s the time when your creative juices are flowing.

This abundant theme continues throughout August so make the most of it. Continue to look at how you can improve your social life or find happiness in the small things. This is important moving forward, seeking gratitude and appreciation for what you have and your life as it is.

Home & Personal Life

Traditionally, August is Leo season and the Sun is here until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury enlivens this sector of your horoscope until the 11th which links to your home and family. Plus, the New Moon on the 8th falls in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings.

This could be a busy time of year for you with family visiting or the builders in temporary residence. For some of you, life may feel unsettled. Or, perhaps you’re choosing to do things differently and be more independent.

This has a lot to do with Uranus, the planet of change and unpredictability, currently in your star sign, Taurus. Uranus is especially active in the first week of August, which could throw up some challenges for your career or future path.

This might be an exciting time when you’re open to new ideas or discovering new family. It does, however, feel full on. It’s important you build some ‘me’ time in to the midst of busyness.

Uranus turns direct on the 20th. Often, when an outer planet changes direction, it feels intense. If your birthday falls between May 3rd-5th, you’ll notice this the most. Sometimes, you feel wired when Uranus’ activity kicks in. It’s lively and the opposite of grounded.

Try and make sense of what you’re feeling or experiencing. This could be very personal to you, a time when you’re looking more closely at who you are and what you want and need.

Sometimes, the only way you can discover this is when you experience the opposite, i.e. you’re in a place or situation that dissatisfies you more than fulfils you.

Teamwork & Good Health

After the 16th, a more logical or rational approach is needed as your planet Venus moves into air sign, Libra. This is good for finding your allies and creating helpful alliances at work.

Libra rules your work and routine, your lifestyle and your health. It’s the planet of balance and harmony, social skills and people pleasing.

You’re likely to be happiest if work is social and you’re more effective working in a team. This is the time to strategise and analyse and work things out together.

This theme continues through the Full Moon on the 22nd. This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius and your career and future sector. The first took place on July 24th and this month’s Full Moon may flag up a repeat theme.

You do have lucky Jupiter back in Aquarius and your career and vocation sector and it’s linked in to the Full Moon. This would be a good time to take a risk and pick up the theme of progress and new opportunity that’s running through your astrology.

Gemini Horoscope August 2021

Gemini August 2021

Your planet Mercury is moving quickly and is active throughout August. Up until the 11th, Mercury is in fire sign Leo and from the 11th to the 30th, Mercury is in earth sign Virgo, its other sign of rulership. This looks as if there’s a lot going on close to home.

Plus, Mercury makes a host of planetary aspects this month. For one reason or another, it seems as if you’re in the thick of action and what you have to say can influence other people. You could find that you’re exceptionally busy.

Home & Family Plans

During August, earth sign Virgo dominates so pay attention to what’s happening here. Action planet Mars is in Virgo throughout August, the planet of relating Venus is here until the 16th and the Sun enters Virgo on the 22nd.

This is in addition to your planet Mercury in Virgo from the 11th onwards. Virgo rules your home and family, your past and where you come from. It’s the star sign at the base of your horoscope, what roots you and helps you feel grounded.

Therefore, it’s wise to ask why this area of your life is so busy. You might be asking other people for support, helping out more than usual with family or have lots of plans for your home or the place you live or work.

This would be a good time to make lists to ensure nothing gets dropped or forgotten. Virgo is the star sign which represents order and structure, analysis and strategy. You can get a lot done now but it’s super busy.

This is also wise because Uranus, the planet of change is active this month. Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus and the most hidden sector of your horoscope on the 20th. You might be changing your mind and fast. Or, perhaps your mind’s full of great ideas and plans.

Lively activity from the 19th to the 22nd might see you returning your past in some way. Or, a twist of fate reunites you with your past.

Leo Season

Traditionally, August is Leo season when the Sun shines bright in its sign of rulership up until the 22nd. Your planet Mercury is here too until the 11th. This is your communication sector and it’s a month when you’re likely to be talking and writing a lot.

There’s a New Moon in Leo on the 8th and you may need to take the initiative on or preferably just after this date. If you find yourself clashing with other people in the first week of August or find that your plans are changing constantly, even more reason to make a decision and stick to it.

Leo rules your life close to home, your neighbourhood and local community. Siblings and neighbours fall under the Leo umbrella too. Therefore, get involved with what’s going on close to where you live. It’s a good time to make new friends and get to know the people you see every day.

If you’re a typical Gemini, you thrive on chat, gossip and interactions. Step out of your comfort zone, be kind to other people, smile at the people you meet and delve a little deeper.

It’s likely to be a good month if you’re a journalist or interviewer. You have the gift of the gab and the ability to find out more when you’re curious about people and life.

The Full Moon on the 22nd cuts across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac. This is the same star sign combination as last month’s Full Moon on July 24th. It’s about education and travel for you, the bigger picture of life.

Plus, this Full Moon pulls in lucky Jupiter in Aquarius and your travel and study sector. You have to be super flexible now but if you really want to get away or go on a workshop, this Full Moon looks promising. Call in a favour and use your gift of the gab to good effect.

Loving Vibes

Love too is part of the planetary picture, especially once the planet of relating Venus enters your fellow air sign Libra on the 16th.

Libra is your romance sector and represents all the good things in life. Do whatever gives you pleasure, team up with people you love, your children, a new lover, your social circle.

Libra rules a lucky sector of your horoscope, when enjoyment and entertainment peak and your creative juices begin to flow. Be actively social during the second half of August, especially if you’re looking for love.

Jupiter Returns To Aquarius

Jupiter Aquarius

JUPITER IN AQUARIUS 

July 28, 2021 to December 29, 2021

Jupiter is the biggest planet in the universe and the best planet in astrology. The big planet represents opportunity, growth, expansion & freedom and is the planet of hope, trust & faith.

Jupiter’s linked to global connections, education, the law, religion and is where you find meaning and purpose in your life. Wherever you find Jupiter in your horoscope, this is where you’re encouraged to embrace life to the full.

This week, Jupiter is on the move as it retreats back into Aquarius where it was previously from December 19, 2020 to May 13, 2021.

Jupiter is currently retrograde and will return to 22 Aquarius where it turns direct on October 18th. Jupiter then retraces its steps through Aquarius and re-enters Pisces on December 29, 2021.

On a personal level, this is great news if you have planets/angles between 22 – 29 Aquarius as you have two more bites of the Jupiter cherry.  This would be a good time to resurrect an opportunity or idea that emerged in the first five months of 2021 and run with it.

Jupiter Transits

Jupiter’s unusually lively as it returns to Aquarius. On July 29th, the day after Jupiter retrogrades back into Aquarius, Mars at 29 Leo is opposite Jupiter at 29 Aquarius.

Jupiter’s coming back with some power – Mars-Jupiter oppositions are overblown, energetic & enthusiastic. 29 Leo is an important point in astrology as it’s the fixed star Regulus, the royal star.

29 degrees is being emphasised in the zodiac due to Jupiter’s opposition. Next month’s Full Moon on August 22nd falls at 29 degrees Leo/Aquarius, highlighting the exact same axis of the zodiac.

Jupiter is linked in to this Full Moon, because two days earlier on August 20th, there’s a Sun-Jupiter opposition. This is when Jupiter is at its brightest in the night sky and it’s going to be a blazing light after sunset for the next few weeks – look to the east.

Mercury-Jupiter Interplay

Also, there’s a lovely interplay between Mercury and Jupiter that’s coming soon. Mercury is the messenger and Jupiter is a symbol of hope.

The two planets meet three times as Mercury turns retrograde in air sign Libra on September 27th. Here’s the pattern and note whether these degrees of the zodiac stand out for you:

  • Mercury 23 Libra trine Jupiter R 23 AquariusSeptember 20
  • Mercury R 23 Libra trine Jupiter R 23 AquariusOctober 4
  • Mercury 22 Libra trine Jupiter 22 Aquarius – November 1

Both planets turn direct on the same day – October 18th. This feels like an important time of omens, signs & coincidences. Listen carefully to what the universe is telling you.

Where Jupiter Promises Success

Here’s a quick guide to the areas of life that Jupiter will highlight over the next few months. Read both your Sun sign and your Ascendant sign.

Remember, it’s important not to sit back and wait for Jupiter’s gifts to come to you. When you know which area of your life Jupiter is highlighting, take advantage of the best planet.

Jupiter encourages risk-taking, envisioning, enthusiasm and positive vibes. The more you put in, the more you get back in return.

Aquarius: Jupiter is in your 1st house ruling your physical body, your personal goals and ambitions. The spotlight’s on you when Jupiter’s in Aquarius giving you the feel-good factor and doubling your luck. Embrace new experiences, be adventurous and say Yes to life.

Pisces: Jupiter is in your 12th house ruling retreat and quiet times. An ideal time to develop your spiritual side, listen to your inner voice, learn meditation, yoga or go on a retreat. Let the inner journey begin.

Aries: Jupiter is in your 11th house ruling friends, groups, social activities and concerns. An ideal time to connect with old and new friends alike, join a club, society or community project, do your bit for a humanitarian, environmental, political or social cause.

Taurus: Jupiter is in your 10th house ruling your career, vocation, status and where you’re heading in life. An ideal time to change careers, ask for a payrise or go for a promotion, take a sabbatical, work abroad, gain new qualifications and pursue a dream goal.

Gemini: Jupiter is in your 9th house ruling travel, study, philosophy and spirituality. An ideal time to broaden your horizons and remember that life is the journey and not the destination. Emigrate, sign up for a life-changing course, be open-minded and explore life in depth.

Cancer: Jupiter is in your 8th house ruling joint finances, sexuality and all that’s hidden or taboo. An ideal time to pray for what you most need in life, receive an inheritance, improve your financial portfolio, explore your sexuality, embrace celibacy, share resources and pool finances.

Leo: Jupiter is in your 7th house ruling your 1-to-1 relationships. An ideal time to fall in love, propose or be proposed to, play the field and become a dating superstar, let go of a love that restricts you, employ a personal trainer, life coach or find your ideal business partner.

Virgo: Jupiter is in your 6th house ruling work & routine, service to others and your health. An ideal time to change the 9-to-5 so you free up your time, apply for a job, join a volunteer agency, boost your health and fitness. Jupiter in Aquarius is going to be busy for you.

Libra: Jupiter is in your 5th house ruling children, your creativity, entertainment, love affairs and fun. An ideal time to give birth, get pregnant, work with children, write your masterpiece, explore your creativity, have an affair, become a socialite, buy tickets for a big online event.

Scorpio: Jupiter is in your 4th house ruling your home, family, your past and where you come from. An ideal time to move home, expand where you live, make a journey into your past, celebrate with family and find your clan. Forgiveness is a theme moving forward, as is letting go.

Sagittarius: Jupiter is in your 3rd house ruling communication, siblings, neighbours and your local community. An ideal time to launch a website, tell stories, reconnect with brothers, sisters or people who live close by, join your neighbourhood watch scheme, update your mode of communication or transport.

Capricorn: Jupiter is in your 2nd house ruling money, personal possessions and what you value in life. An ideal time to earn more money, play with your investments, think ‘less is more’ and de-clutter your possessions, show your charitable or philanthropic side.

Full Moon Aquarius: Who Am I?

Full Moon Aquarius

Full Moon [1 Aquarius 26]

July 24, 2021 (03:37 GMT+1)

There is a significant Full Moon taking place this weekend. Traditionally, Full Moons are a time for celebration. Emotions are heightened and the Full Moon lights up the night sky extending the hours outside of darkness. More time to play and work outside, less sleep.

In the lunar cycle, the Full Moon represents culmination, ripeness, fertility when the light of the Moon is at its brightest. It’s a powerful time to trust your intuition, especially if you have a big decision to make. Full Moons favour ritual, looking at how far you’ve come and deciding what you’re ready to let go of or release.

A Significant Full Moon

This weekend’s Full Moon is especially significant for two reasons. Firstly, it falls at 1 Aquarius, close to the degree of the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0 Aquarius which took place on December 20, 2020.

Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions herald the start of a new 20 year chapter and in Aquarius this is about technology, science, space travel, social reform, themes involving the collective.

Wherever the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction fell in your horoscope, that point is being triggered right now. What’s coming to culmination or completion in your life?

Secondly, this is the first of two Full Moons in Aquarius. This phenomenon happens approximately every couple of years as the Moon cycle shifts in relation to the zodiac. Usually, each Full Moon is in the following star sign and you have one Full Moon in each star sign once a year.

Next month’s Full Moon takes place on August 22nd and falls at 29 Aquarius. Therefore, this month’s Full Moon is at the beginning of the star sign and next month’s Full Moon is at the end of the star sign. There may be a smaller cycle in your life coming to completion in one month’s time.

Leo/Aquarius Axis

When you’re considering a Full Moon, it’s important to note the signs involved. This month and next, the Sun will be in Leo and the Moon in Aquarius, star signs which oppose one another across the zodiac.

You may notice that opposite star signs have a common theme or require some kind of integration. As with all oppositions, you may go too far in one direction, whereas ideally it’s important to be aware of both and consider how you can tend to them equally.

The Sun shines bright in Leo and the essence of Leo is to be at the heart of proceedings, the centre of attention. The big cat of the zodiac thrives when it receives plenty of stroking, accolade and admiration. Leo is a creative sign, so this is about your identity, your unique skills and talents, what makes you ‘you’.

Whereas Aquarius represents the collective rather than the individual. The Sun finds it hard to shine in Aquarius because it has to share the limelight. This isn’t about self-interest. Aquarius represents what’s best for everyone, common goals, a shared mission or purpose.

You may experience issues around fitting in or being an outsider during this Full Moon. Where do you belong, who can you team up with to achieve mutual goals?

Do you find your light is dimmed if you compare yourself unfavourably to others, if other people don’t get who you are, if your contribution goes unwanted? Are you on the outside looking in?

Alternatively, are you ready to shine bright, share your natural talents with the world, make a difference? This is an important time to consider the groups you belong to, your friendships, your associations.

You may decide to leave or move on from one set and find a new group or alliance. As with all oppositions, we can either focus on what divides us or work together to create unity out of polarity.

These themes are already resonant within our society but there may be significant ways how they play out for you personally. It’s an ideal Full Moon to ask those all-important questions, ‘Who am I and where do I belong?’

What It Means For You

Here are the areas of your life which are being highlighted by this week’s Full Moon.

  • Leo: Personal goals & self care – relationships & one-on-one partnership
  • Virgo: Retreat & recuperation – work, service, health & fitness
  • Libra: Friends, groups & networks – self-expression, creativity, children & love affairs
  • Scorpio: Career & vocation – home & family
  • Sagittarius: Travel & exploration – being busy close to home, neighbours & siblings
  • Capricorn: Other peoples’ money & joint resources – personal possessions & values
  • Aquarius: Relationships & one-on-one partnership – personal goals & self care
  • Pisces: Work, service, health & fitness – retreat & recuperation
  • Aries: Self-expression, creativity, children & love affairs – friends, groups & networks
  • Taurus: Home & family – career & vocation
  • Gemini: Being busy close to home, neighbours & siblings – travel & exploration
  • Cancer: Personal possessions & values – other peoples’ money & joint resources

New Moon Cancer: Welcome Home

New Moon [18 Cancer 02]

– July 10, 2021 (02:17 GMT+1)

During a New Moon, the Sun and Moon sit side by side in the same sign at the same degree. This month, the Moon is most powerful in her sign of rulership Cancer.

The Moon is the significator for women and the mother in astrology and Cancer is the nurturing, maternal sign. This is a fertile New Moon ripe with potential.

Cancer is the sign that pulls you back to your roots, draws your attention to your home and your family. You seek out comfort, somewhere to nest so you feel safe and secure.

Wherever the New Moon falls in your horoscope, this is where you feel the urge to retreat, be in your comfort zone, make things comfortable and cosy.

The New Moon in Cancer is the perfect time to set your intentions for the month ahead, especially in the areas of home, family, your past and where you come from.

The New Moon is initiating a new cycle, an ideal time to start over, organise a family event, focus on a home move or domestic project.

The Outer Planets

This feels like a significant New Moon as it links in to the three outer planets, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto. Big changes afoot, a meaningful transition.

The Sun in Cancer (18 degrees) is separating from Uranus in Taurus (14 degrees), bringing a theme of change. The Sun in a water sign aligns with sentimental Neptune in Pisces (23 degrees), a perfect time to revisit your hopes and dreams.

The Sun’s wide opposition to Pluto in Capricorn (25 degrees) is a reminder that when you begin something new, inevitably you have to leave something else behind. It’s the nature of things.

Linking In To The Eclipse Cycle

This New Moon feels particularly powerful as it’s the first pure New Moon in Cancer since 2017. In 2018, 2019 & 2020, the New Moon in Cancer was a Solar Eclipse.

Therefore, this New Moon in Cancer and the Full Moon in Capricorn two weeks ago on June 24th may be linked to the powerful Cancer-Capricorn eclipse cycle that began in July 2018 and completed in July 2020.

It’s obvious symbolism in my life as we sold our family home in November 2018 and I’ve been embarking on a major new chapter in my life ever since.

To confirm the importance of the current Full Moon/New Moon fortnight, two weeks ago on the day of the Full Moon I left the flat I’d been living in for a few months.

I’ve been on a road trip this last fortnight visiting friends and family. On Monday 12th, two days after the New Moon I start another temporary stay in a new home. Divine timing? It feels like it.

The Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac cuts across the MC/IC axis in my horoscope, the foundations of the chart ruling work & home, your past & your future path. The Full Moon on June 24th fell exactly on my MC/IC and off I went.

The fact that we bought our family home during the last Cancer/Capricorn eclipse cycle in 2000/2002 completes the circle and emphasises the importance of this period in my life.

Discovering what home or family mean to you personally is one way that this New Moon could benefit you. For example, I don’t currently have my own home through choice, yet I understand more powerfully the meaning of home and family in my life.

I’ve been welcomed in to other people’s homes & families time & again recently and the power of the quote below resonates completely with me. The derivation of the word ‘planet’ also means ‘wanderer’.

New Moon Cancer, wanderer

Here’s a quick guide to where this New Moon falls in your horoscope. Read both your Sun & Ascendant signs:

  • Cancer – personal goals, image & identity
  • Leo – your inner world, retreat & sacrifice
  • Virgo – friends, groups & wider society
  • Libra – career & status, future path
  • Scorpio – global connections, travel & study
  • Sagittarius – joint finances & sexuality
  • Capricorn – love & relationships, contracts
  • Aquarius – job & health, service to others
  • Pisces – birth i.e. children, romance, creative projects
  • Aries – home & family, where you come from
  • Taurus – community, siblings & neighbours, communication
  • Gemini – money & assets, self-worth, values
