The Cancer New Moon occurs at 4:08 a.m. ET.

The Sabian Symbol** for the New Moon is “The seed grows into knowledge and life.”. Although this phrase may sound like an obvious one for any new moon, it actually has a dimension unique to the sign of Cancer. Every new moon triggers a fresh start, and is a platform for new beginnings, the perfect environment for a seed.

Yet not every seed takes root and grows. Your memory holds a trough of seeds that never received the fertilizer needed, neglected, unable to come to term or dormant. Even the lost seed, may have value as a lesson or an experience. For some of us, reflection on the past may be part of this New Moon, but only if it allows the recognition of where power can be found instead of a retread of old hurts.

You may revisit a buried wish or idea that now can actually come alive. You may release a cherished possibility because you realize it has a better chance of survival in someone else’s hands. Or you may come to terms with the realization that your present is beautiful just as it is, without the potential of the lost seed.

The essence of the Cancer New Moon is to create a new beginning in the home or goals for home. This may be a time for a fresh approach to family and/or relationship to mother or mothering. Plant your garden, study permaculture or any concept that deepens your understanding of roots, food, heritage or mother.

Please join me on Friday June 27 if you can get to Wainwright House in Rye, for my New Moon Gathering.

** We are still in the process of understanding the Sabian symbols, which were channeled in 1925. The spiritualist astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, took Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant confined to a wheelchair to a San Diego park with a project. He put a symbol for each of the 360° of the zodiacal wheel on 360 cards. She proceeded to come up with visual phrases for each one of them. They were done in random order and they have a magic that is hard to decipher, yet feels totally right.
