New Moons are a good time to concentrate on seeding. Take a look at your horoscope, locate the 9th degree of cancer and think what you would like to bring in into this area of your life. This is a good time to connect with your shadow, or less known parts of yourself, and communicate. You can get insights, and you can be very practical in your seeking for what you want.
For everybody, this is the time to reflect upon the Cancer influence in your life.

Cancer represents the energy of roots, of nurturing, of where we come from, and where we keep on coming back to be ourselves.
In esoteric Astrology, the soul first enters human life under the cancer sign, this is the energy that connects you to earth. The crab’s habitat is right on the shore combining the water element with the earth element. In reincarnation astrology Cancer represents a new beginning, a digging into your roots, re-experiencing your emotions in a straight forward manner; A life of re-connecting with the energy of nurturing.
The moon is the ruler of Cancer representing all of our emotional ties. It answers where we feel comfortable, where we can stay children forever, and more than anything else: where we feel SECURE. This energy can be overly sensitive, easily hurt and prone to brooding. On the flip side it easy to be sympathetic to others and quick to show affection. Cancer love is protective, but unless tempered, can be smothering.
Cancer is a cardinal sign, and therefore NOT passive. True, it doesn’t like changes, and does like to blend into the environment, BUT cancer energy is very strong indeed. Cancers start off with kindness and gentleness, but if that doesn’t work, they will show just how strong willed they are, and show you their claws. If you threaten a loved one, or their home, you will see a great warrior. This is why many cancers are so patriotic, and are willing to fight for their country.
The new moon horoscope: July 11, 10:53 GMT, 9 Cancer
The horoscope of the New Moon shows that the sun moon conjunction is in a T squre: opposing Pluto indicating the continued struggle between the forces of conservatism (cancer), and the forces wiping out the old regimes (Pluto in Capricorn). Uranus in Aries in a square to Pluto and the Sun/Moon adds oil to the fire by demanding new directions without thinking which ones are the right ones.
Neptune in Trine to the Sun/Moon is helping us all to relieve some of the tension by helping us to imagine a better future, and supporting the knowing that we are all connected, and all want a world that is just and gives opportunity to all.
Mercury in Gemini is in Trine to Uranus, helping the new solutions filter their way to daily life, helping us all to communicate and find ways to change our structures (Pluto in Capricorn), while preserving a sense of security and continuity (Sun/Moon in Cancer)
