The characteristics of this Cancer New Moon are three-fold and relate to an emotional need to release and move forward.
This New Moon triggers the Ceres/Uranus midpoint. It’s an indication of the development of an opportunity to release an old habit, routine, or responsibility centering around mothering, nurturing, children, or the single-minded nature of one’s focus on a child or children.
The way you cultivate what you value most may change as a result of a breakthrough, flash of insight, or an unexpected (but basically supportive) “shock” delivered by Uranus.
Following along the same lines, it could be time to release the characteristics that define an old relationship with one’s parent or parents. You have a choice to take action that will most likely involve forgiveness, release, and a willingness to change your perspective on something that may be very old and deeply ingrained.
How you “define yourself to yourself” may change as a result of the impending emotional rebirth.
Secondly this Cancer new Moon squares the Uranus/Neptune midpoint. This requires a type of action that involves trust and a degree of solid grounding. This is the acceptance of an invitation into a higher “form of operation.” It describes a state of being open to mystical or spiritual influences – a willingness to trust the process, to delve into the mysteries of your inner worlds – with greater trust and a reliance on invisible guidance through the support of those who have passed on before you.
When confronted with an invitation to trust or embrace a “higher level of operation” and the “unknown” you might be reluctant to cross over this “new threshold.” A decision may need to be made. Instinctively you’ll likely intuit it’s safe.
The third point of focus relates to a practical opportunity to release an old “contract” you might have entered into willingly – or one that organically developed over time. It’s time to re-examine, reconstruct, or nullify “a contract” that no longer supports healthy growth. What you used to believe may no longer be valid.
Sticking with what’s stabilized you in the past may no longer be necessary. No need to wait until things progress in the direction of stagnation – or until something increasingly toxic becomes harder to release.
The tightest aspect in this new Moon chart (other than the Sun/Moon conjunction) is a Mercury/Pallas square. New information may not support your old strategies and approaches. A new plan and a new emotional beginning is in the works.
Instinctively you’ll feel the force for change. You can feel safe replacing an old source of security with a new one as you move forward.
