Figuring out what makes you feel at home may be a dire necessity during this powerfully sensitive new Moon in Cancer on July 19. Emotional turbulence is a strong undercurrent and there is very little reason or rationale for many of the tidal wave of temper tantrums that will ensue over the next few days. The tension between the cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn) continues. And thus, those are the signs most affected by this new Moon, so take note if your birthday falls into one of the above categories.

Our relationships, our family patterns, our career issues and our ego trips are all being put to serious test. Questions like: are you operating out of your highest integrity? Are you comparing yourself too much to others? Do you allow the destructive sides of competition to inhibit your progress? Do you express your anger and emotions in a constructive and direct way before resentments build?

The way out of this emotional morass is to stay grounded in your feelings. Listen to your intuition without exception. The best advice for surviving this potentially volatile new Moon is to stay cool, calm and collected. You are being tested to do the right thing. Family and friends may have their opinions about what you should do but unless you follow your gut there may be pitfalls and resentments to come. Only you know what constitutes the right thing.

Cancer is the sign associated with home, security and the vast spectrum of our moods and emotions. Use this new Moon as a reset. Cancer can be a time of emotional reactiveness but this is the perfect time to commit to staying centered. Refuse to give in to your insecurities. Once you see how destructive your negative emotions can be, you’ll cling to neutral ground and promote peace over discord.
