New Moon in Cancer 2021 - and Tarot Readings for Each Zodiac Sign

The first New Moon of the summer arrives on Friday, July 9th at 9:17 PM EDT in sensitive Cancer. This lunation touches down on different aspects with the outer planets, which means it could be truly transformative. If the year has felt like a drag, consider this a fresh start.

Cancer is associated with family, security, nurturing, and home. In the past year, we’ve all been cooped up and isolated from the ones we love due to the pandemic. While this is far from over, a new normal has emerged. We’re all rethinking the way we live, work, and care for others…and ourselves.

This New Moon is for creating a new home life, one that better suits the changing world we inhabit. This may be the right time to move to a place with better opportunities. Or perhaps it’s time to purchase a house or update current living quarters. For those now working permanently from home, a spruced-up home office (or shed!) might be necessary. Think about what you need to feel comfy – and begin making the change.

This may also be the perfect lunar cycle to start a family, reconnect with loved ones – or welcome new people into your community. We’re all in this together, a big extended family of sorts. Might we discover new ways to coexist and look out for one another? Think about how kindness and inclusivity could change the current divisive vibe that’s been amplified in the past year. The New Moon on Cancer 2021 is a green light to try a little tenderness and take care of each other.

Emotions are elevated around this day, folks are touchy, and it’s too easy to get triggered. Be sensitive to other people’s feelings and intensify self-care. Set a few new boundaries. Time spent in spiritual practices or near bodies of water could restore your sense of balance if it’s been lost.

Good questions to ask now: “what makes me feel secure?” or what does family mean to me?” or “how can I protect my community?”

A sextile with Uranus before the New Moon occurs nudges us out of our comfort zones. And the opposition with Pluto the following day gives just the right push to transform our feelings, homes, families, and communities. Change is never easy but now…it’s possible. 

Set intentions today around home, security, safety, family, community, sensitivity, and emotions. Learn how to do that with New Moon Astrology by Jan Spiller, my favorite resource.
