Consider what makes you feel safe under today’s emotional new moon!

July 5, 2024

At 12:02 p.m.: Mars is sextile Saturn

After noon, Mars in Taurus sextiles Saturn in Pisces, making business a breeze. We’re attracted to traditional methods that have worked well for us in the past. Declining to overcomplicate matters allows us to tackle tedious tasks efficiently. This is an excellent day to begin a long-term project. Patience and perseverance are our forte. We are confident in our abilities and know that our efforts will yield fruit even if we don’t see immediate results.

At 3:57 p.m.: The moon is conjunct the sun

Later in the afternoon, the Cancer new moon invites us to set intentions for shoring up our internal sense of security. Is safety an emotion that you are naturally in touch with? Or does it bring up sensations of anxiety and apprehension? Where do you feel like you can relax? With whom can you let your guard down? Today, identify your personal qualifications for comfort and ease. Elect to make them a more integral aspect of your life for the next two weeks. This moon opposes Ceres, the asteroid of nurturance and support, in Capricorn. It may be that what you think will grant you security is not what will actually provide it for you. Putting too high a premium on wealth or status could be the culprit. Settling for the bare minimum may have been what you learned from your mother or family. Detaching yourself from inherited fears is key now. Cultivating safety may require you to recognize and repair an unhealthy pattern established in your childhood.
