Explore Your Dreams: Cancer New Moon 2012



by Cathy Pagano July 15, 2012 10:43 PM EST
Cancer New Moon, July 18-19, 2012

We know that a new Moon begins a new cycle of energy each month.  Every year, the Cancer new Moon offers us an opportunity to renew our emotional body.  And since the Moon is the ruler of Cancer, it makes this new Moon renewal doubly important.  When we understand our unconscious motivations, we can work with our feelings and choose our actions.  When we continue to ignore our emotions and instincts, our old behaviors deaden us, the inner ‘well’ runs dry and we’re stuck going round and round the same place, the same issues, the same feelings.  When we don’t acknowledge and take care of our emotional body, it’s not as easy to activate new energy each month.  In the first instance, we are being empowered by the positive mother-complex.  In the second, we are caught in the negative-mother complex.  This new Moon wants us to embody our feelings and learn to work with them.  Then on the following new Moons we can get on to new business.

Cancer is an action-oriented water sign, picking up not only on our own feelings, but the feelings of people around us.  Cancer pushes us to do something about those feelings, helping us stay creative, fluid and mobile, adapting to the situation.   Cancer symbolizes the Mother, and it is Mom who nurtures our original emotional body.   Moms have to go with the flow and be attuned to our child’s needs and emotions, and when a person has strong Cancer influences in their chart, they too develop the ‘mom antenna’ that lets them know exactly what’s going on beneath the surface.   The trick with Cancer is to know when to do something about it and when to hold back and give silent support.

When we accept the ‘positive mother’ we actually like ourselves and our values, especially if they contribute to the whole community.  We don’t compare ourselves to some cultural stereotype of who we should be, and we certainly don’t give more value to other people’s opinions than to our own original thoughts and ideas. 

This Cancer New Moon is a good time to go within and discover the sweet, comfortable, creative things you need to nurture yourself.  Then go and do it!

Until Next Time,
Sweet Dreams!
