cancerHere comes the first new moon in Cancer with Jupiter in Cancer from about 11 years ago. Since July 2002 exactly. And what historical moment this is! Both Jupiter and the Sun and the Moon connected with the famous current Urano-Pluto square, thus forming a T-square to it. And of course people are once again on the streets in Egypt, Brazil and other places, calling for compliance with the promises that the “democratically elected” politicians did or the change of Government. At the individual level we will be asked to finally become aware of situations that we have pending.
Once again, we insist at this point in our evolution, that the changes that were requested by the people on streets, was a real transformation, and not simply a name change in the Government.
Jupiter has not reached Urano and Pluto at the time of the new moon, that will take place in August. 7-8 Jupiter will oppose Pluto, and 20 and 21 will make an exact square to Uranus. We must not forget that Pluto represents the collective shadow of our time, and Jupiter, the higher ideals. What needs to be brought to light and rescued from the shadows, in your life, to be able to evolve and finally say goodbye to patterns that you condemn and chain you? This, of course, applies to us individuals and to the collective also.
These are not easy easy answers for anyone at this point, since there are those who insist that everything remains the same, and that is no longer possible. Just at the time when the new moon reaches its peak, the Sun and the moon are coupled with a retrograde Mercury, also in Cancer, and this will probably mean that issues that have to do with papers, contracts and communications have to be checked again or re-signed. Saturn stations direct, which means that it reaches its slower motion, before starting its way forward again from the 5 th of Scorpio, just as the new moon peaks. On the 17th, Jupiter will form a Water Grand Trine involving Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Scorpio, something it hasn’t happened in these signs before in our lives. The temptation to think of the easy solution to many emotional issues is large, but we should not forget that Saturn represents obligations and limits and in transit through Scorpio, it is forcing us to look deeply at what our responsibility is, for what happens to us. The role of victim, supported by Neptune in PISCES meets the relentless gaze of Saturn and Jupiter extreme idealism. Everything that irritates us, must be worked and we must ask ourselves why we get stuck to that which causes us pain, which challenges us, which confronts us with the least attractive part of ourselves. Saturn reminds us that there is NO way of NOT doing the right thing. The collective consciousness is immensely more powerful than the individual mind. We connected to the “tribal soul” to which we belong, whether we like it or not, and the “tribal soul”, like Daan van Kampenhout so beautifully explains in his book “The tears of the Ancestors”, has its strict laws and expectations of each individual which is part of it. What the tribal soul thinks is wrong, each individual knows that it is wrong, whether he or she agrees with it or not. It is appropriate to speak of the tribal soul, when we speak of a new moon in Cancer, since it is this first sign of water that connects us with the concept of tribe. Cancer always seems to be looking for a tribe to belong to, a place to call “home”. Although the concept of tribe itself relates more to Aquarius, belonging or not to it is a Cancer issue, since this sign is in constant search for that place where he/she can feel at home.
Use the energies of this extraordinary aspect to meditate, and let go of situations that impede your growth. It is essential to say goodbye to old molds to find new ways. These are times of great ideas and with the possibility of carrying them through. Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio are the big beneficiaries of this New Moon, but also in smaller-scale, Virgo and Taurus. But yes, with Saturn, these are not times to party, but to work hard. A great feeling of achievement is what awaits us if we are prepared to do the work. Listen to the whispers of your soul.
