Attention, astro fans: the New Moon in Cancer on July 20, 2020 is one part spicy and one part magical. Get excited! In case you need a reminder, a New Moon happens once a month and occurs when the Moon is at its darkest. Astronomically, the New Moon is the first of eight lunar phases and happens when the Moon and Sun are at the same ecliptic longitude and the lunar disc cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Astrologically (which is likely the angle you’re more invested in), a New Moon represents a window of time when we can plant seeds of intentions that we want to manifest during the corresponding moon cycle. In addition to being a time to start the manifestation process, each New Moon asks you to focus on a specific part of your life by introducing a person, circumstance or situation to you. It’s almost as if the universe gives us a monthly gift that, if used correctly, can help us become more active co-creators in this journey of life.
What’s more, each New Moon comes with its own energetic signature. This New Moon will happen in the sign of Cancer and will be perfect for setting intentions around your home life, family, place of residence, roommates, emotional wellbeing, relationship with your mother, feelings about motherhood and your privacy. Since this is a water New Moon, it might have you a little caught up in your feels, but that’s OK. Just go with it.
Coupled with a pretty spicy beam from Saturn, who will be forming an opposition to the New Moon, you might encounter a new circumstance or two that feels a bit tense. Just remember that Saturn only wants you to be the best version of yourself. Whatever comes your way, don’t take it personally—just look for the lesson and set intentions to be more diligent in the future. Plus, Neptune (planet of inspiration, dreams and intuition) will be sending glorious beams at the New Moon, so your intuition will be lit AF. Be sure to trust your gut this New Moon and take note of your dreams, as they might provide you some extra insight into your life.
