New Moon Cancer: Nourish the Body Temple

Cancer New Moon ~ “ Mother Daughter’s Moon” ~ at 18 degrees on July 9, 2021, 6:16 PM PDT/7:16 PM MDT/8:16 PM CDT/9:16 PM EDT

The Cancer New Moon sets the Field for a 3-month cycle of ACTION for the 2021 Zodiac Year. The Cancer New Moon feels the power of bringing people together to see the greatness that each other beholds. Your quest over the next three months is to ask yourself, “How can GOD take birth within my Soul today?” Ask this question every morning. If you are like me, you will ask this question before falling asleep the night before. If you are born between midnight and sunrise, your day begins before you wake up. Get your Natal astrology chart to find out if that is you!

Rules of Engagement

Vulcan sets sails at 11 degrees Cancer and is the driving force for setting the rules of engagement over the next three months. Vulcan represents the 8th Sphere of evolving Soul consciousness and forges the rules for how you can live at the most fulfilling vibration. The ego, or separated Self, is an inexperienced and limited version of your Soul. Your true Soul energy embodies your spiritual greatness. The New Moon in Cancer invites you to take action on nurturing your greatness with Divine Mother energy. One of the most powerful ways to nurture your own greatness is to step outside yourself and nurture the greatness in others. This expands your ability to recognize greatness in yourself when you can see it in others.

Nourishing The Body Temple

As you look for the greatness in yourself and others, the Cancer New Moon reminds you that the best way to nourish your body temple is to nourish your feelings and emotions. Cancer rules the 4th House of the Divine Mother, family, ancestry, memories, and feelings. Ruled by the Moon, your Emotional Body is fed by the continual waxing and waning, releasing and purifying of your feelings. Emotions and feelings are two separate vibrations. Feelings occur in the present moment and are experienced at the multi-dimensional level of body, mind, and Spirit. Emotions are outside of the present moment in time and space. Thoughts create emotions. Emotions can be both from the future and the past. Emotions can get stuck in your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Over time stuck emotions can create havoc, illness, and despair. The Sabian Symbol for the New Moon offers ways to cleanse and purify your Emotional Body – make sure to keep reading.

Look to the teachings of the 14th Dalai Lama on how to achieve a life of happiness and fulfillment. His Holiness’ main teaching roots from the field of Compassion. Compassion is one of the most powerful cleansing agents for the Emotional Body. Compassion is the simple expression of the heart and mind combined. Create a new cycle in your life to develop a Compassion Practice. There are many forms to be found and many Masters to help you. I like the teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Hawaiian practice of Ho’oponopono, the dharmic practice of Metta, and Anusara Yoga that opens the heart chakra to follow the path of Bliss.

Earth Trine Kite for the Soul

An Earth Trine Kite is created by the New Moon in Cancer. This powerful harmonic alignment is in effect for the next three months. The Earth Trine Kite is constructed by the alignments of Pluto RX in Capricorn, Vesta in Virgo, Sedna conjunct the Black Moon in Taurus, and Neptune RX and Pallas Athena in Pisces. The ancient song of the Vestal Virgins is activated. It is possible that those among us who lived during the time of ancient Rome who served the Goddess Vesta will have a resurgence of memories of these past lifetimes. It was these priestesses that held the security of Rome in their hands. They tended the sacred fires at the temples and ensured the sacred flame’s continuance. According to Wikipedia, “In 382, the Christian emperor Gratian confiscated the public revenues assigned to the cult of Vesta in Rome, and the Vestals vanished from historical record soon after.”

The message of the Vestal Virgins now is this: “May future generations always have better prospects than we ourselves inherited.”

This is a time to focus on the development of your Selfhood. Be a person with confidence and integrity in all your actions. Take responsibility for all your gifts, skills, and talents, and do not squander the privileges you have within you. When you put forth a strong determination to contribute who you are to the Greater Good of human evolution, you become a foundation of what is possible for future generations. Speak eloquently about the future and use your mind as a springboard for new ways to express human potential.

CANCER Moon + Sun = INITIATING A CYCLE OF ACTION

SABIAN SYMBOL: 18 DEGREES CANCER

“A Priest performing a marriage ceremony.”

Civilization promotes conformity to bring all facets of life into alignment.

The New Moon and Sun appear at 18 degrees Cancer initiating a new cycle of action over the next three months. The New Moon and Sun come into perfect union bringing together your inner Masculine and inner Feminine. This frequency is about uniting your inner world. The Sun and Moon represent masculine and feminine but also Mother and Father. If you are not at peace with your parents, now is the time to make peace within so that you can heal your inner Self. Create a sacred ceremony to make a commitment to your true Self to come into a sacred marriage.

The Moon is the ruler of Cancer and enjoys the fresh energy of being a first-time Mom. This is when you discover how you want to tend to your sweet child within. You make the rules that emanate from your heart. You decide how you need to be nurtured. Don’t blindly follow the rules made by others. When you do, you acquiesce to being in bondage to those expectations. Instead, take the time to get to know yourself and what your real needs are. Reset your grounding cord to Mother Earth and pray daily to be filled with her love.

The “Mother Daughter’s Moon” passes through the 9th Lunar Mansion known as “The Pitcher”. From a Pitcher, the Moon pours rich maternal waters to help you learn how to love yourself completely. The Great Pitcher pours onto the masses the power of nurturing Love. You are being called to LOVE so that you can be in Service to Others and fulfill your mission on Earth. Bask in the light of the Moon that brings you home to yourself. Stand under the waterfall of the Great Mother Matrix pouring unconditional Love over the next three months.

The Human Design Gateway and Gene Key are #53. Gateway 53 is about starting things into action. Your goal is “Superabundance” but first, you must reckon with the energy of immaturity. To start something with power, set solid intentions. These intentions act like super seeds that can expand and grow into superabundance. Look to your Cancer-ruled House to see where this superabundance of energy sits. Schedule a 1:1 hour-long session with me to pinpoint exactly where that is in your chart.

When you join the Astro Alchemy Lab, you learn how to activate this seed to create whatever you desire in your life over the next four months. Isn’t that worth it?
