What happens when you get two New Moons back-to-back in the same sign? Well, you’re about to find out! The New Moon in Cancer on June 21 was also a Solar Eclipse, and its energy was much more intense. The upcoming New Moon on July 20 will not host an eclipse, but it does come with its own version of intensity.
The biggest influence here is Saturn retrograde in Capricorn, in its native sign. Saturn is a planet that deals with discipline, responsibility, and mastery. So does the sign of Capricorn. When the New Moon rolls in on Monday this planet will be in opposition to the Sun and Moon.
When Saturn is in retrograde it may feel like important tasks are taking a long time to complete. You may also feel quite distracted, with your energy being pulled all over the place in different directions. You may feel stifled in your ability to make decisions. Restrictions on moving your plans forward are highly likely. This is to teach lessons, as is the karmic way of Saturn.
With six current retrogrades affecting the progression of 2020, we can see much of life feels like it is at a standstill. We are in a state of civil unrest, while the coronavirus pandemic continues to disarm our expectations. Government and authority aim to seize control among the masses. This is generating confusion, opposition, and segregation. We are living in very challenging times.
We are now called to our Mastery. We are called to a deeper alignment with our higher consciousness. As the Sun and Moon reach their opposition with Saturn you may feel that your fears and insecurities are rising to the surface.
This can look like: making irrational judgments, developing issues with authority figures, feelings of anxiousness and depression, feeling more isolated, having problems at work, fear of taking on responsibilities,.and experiencing limitations on productivity.
Instead of focusing on all of the hurdles that have obstructed your path this year, what have you learned? How have you grown? What can you reflect on that has supported your journey forward?
This New Moon is asking us to embrace our shadow self. It is the parts of us that many wish to discard and be rid of. But this part of us holds a lot of power. It depends on how you view it and how you use it.
Reject it and you will suffer greatly. Resist it and it will persist. Acknowledge and accept it, and you will evolve exponentially.
As the Moon reveals her shadow to you, show her the like. This will lead to great success and empowerment. This is true alignment. This is Mastery.
