What are the effects of the New Moon, July 20th, 2020 ?
This strange New Moon on July 20th is on the last degrees of Cancer (28°), at 7:33 p.m. and will illuminate our summer sky with its golden disc. The softness of the Moon in Cancer is in perfect harmony with the atmosphere at the end of July. The nostalgia of the full summer, which already stretches towards August, whispers that everything has a purpose. No matter how hard we try to stop time, no matter how hard we try to control our days' flight, our only way out is to live in the present to the fullest.
The solar fire is on the verge of waking up in the sign of Leo, it's home, but it has not yet crossed the door. Always plunged into the lunar wave, the Sun remains fascinated by the star of the night. It loses its strength, of course, but it regains it gently. We then obtain a mysterious atmosphere, strange lights are revealed and are agitated on the crest of the waves of all our oceans. Natural elements soothe us, of course, with their beneficial presence and also our inner oceans, those that stir and shake up all our lost or forgotten thoughts.
To revive our memory and readjust our thoughts, it will be time, under this New Moon, to take into consideration the opinions that may seem divergent. The advice of those around us or the reflections provoked by reading, social networks, or inspired by encounters or stories from the past are transmitted to us orally. Faced with a metaphysical puzzle for details that might seem trivial, it is a good idea to incorporate into our reflections the opinions of wise people who will distill sound wisdom.
Influxes point out quickly identifiable drifts: if it seems pointless to change anything in one's functioning or character, to take one's reactions and standpoints for granted, this New Moon brings it to light. Indeed, impulsive and spontaneous, the Sun-Moon opposition in the sign of Cancer can be infantile, sometimes stubborn. Its strong magnetism plays the card of charm and charisma, sometimes in an uncontrollable way and catches itself in its nets. Natives under this influence (mainly Cancer, but also Sagittarius and Leo) will have a hard time untangling the truth from the false. In the long run, it will be necessary to introduce something "new" in our behaviour. But, above all, to learn from the past before projecting oneself further.
Besides, the signs of Pisces and Scorpio benefit from the support of the planet Neptune, which gives them flair. Peremptory postures will be avoided "on the razor's edge," thanks to Neptune's friendly aspect to the Sun-Moon conjunction. The right balance between audacity and delicacy will bear fruit.
One of the effects of this New Moon is to be confronted with people who use or abuse an established situation. It will be necessary to open one's eyes and get rid of profiteers from all walks of life, and deal with the complications by simple means: provoke open and frank discussion, or finally deliver the substance of one's thoughts by closing the door once and for all. Betrayals and lies may be underlying the New Moon in Cancer. Skillfully constructed masks are beginning to fall apart, without any real awareness or acceptance of clairvoyance. We will then have to wait for the next full Moon to grasp the irrefutable evidence of duplicity.
Earth signs in particular (Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo) or natives influenced by these signs, will join the ranks of those who will have to untangle the web of: "who says true"/"who says false." It will then be better to remain within the consensus, at the risk that this will be seen as a wait-and-see attitude. Procrastination will, for the moment, be the best option. In a few days, it will be time to place oneself in the position of choices displayed. Unexpected changes or decisions made too quickly, spread, inconsistency and/or unfortunate alternatives, will be waiting for those who have not had the necessary patience. This can influence both the social and private spheres. Designating one's preferences without stopping them will be the best solution, even if the dilemma remains unresolved.
Fortunately, the influxes are open to cordial understanding and communication through Venus in Gemini. It will be enough to get closer to relatives and friends to regain the joy of life, to have fun and have a good time, simply by a phone call or via the internet. This will keep us from getting depressed.
If the New Moon on the Capricorn-Cancer axis concentrates some nervous impulses, it gives pride of place to wisdom and reflection, thanks to the heavy planets in Capricorn. This cluster, which takes its time while creating stagnant situations, encourages the learning of new rules. Its opposition to the New Moon provides an opportunity to put a stop to thoughtless or unscrupulous behaviour.
The Sun-Moon conjunction in Cancer, accompanied by Mercury, holds the promise of profound intelligence, mature reflection, and memory. These virtues will enable us to give new impetus to our environment. The natives who have this planet in strength in their birth chart (Gemini, Gemini ascendant, Virgo, of course, but also the natives of Cancer) will be the first to find solutions to their problems, whatever they may be. They will be part of the people who will be forces of proposals, either in their family or in their professional environment. In short, they will be initiators by carrying loud, clear, and practical ideas.
An unexpected piece of luck will save the natives of Sagittarius and Aries from impulsivity. The friendly and open dimension serves as an airbag for them and offers proposals that will accompany them on the path of novelty. Particularly beneficial awareness on their part or the part of decision-makers will allow them to recover from situations that were tense or that seemed compromised. In any case, they will have the opportunity to prepare the next step or give up for good by choice or because they will be asked to do so.
In this context, the New Moon offers us the opportunity to support innovation. It will be a matter of learning lessons and not rushing into the unknown, but taking a big step towards the future.
The New Moon on June 21st, 2020
It is under the very early-morning gaze of the Sun-Moon conjunction in the sign of Cancer that we will approach Sunday, June 21st. The solstice and, thus, the change of season has taken place the day before at 11:43 pm. Therefore, we enter the summer through the wide-open door of the New Moon. The New Moon is young, intuitive, and acts on the unconscious. If something of the consciousness manifests itself, it remains very subjective. The primary effect of the conjunction of the Moon is confusion. It often underlines the difficulty of distinguishing dreams from the realities of the world. The obligation to have to confront one's feelings or desires with unavoidable events roughly is revealing. The notions of impulsiveness and new impetus are not absent from the New Moon period, but slight drops in vitality can also manifest themselves.
Sometimes, tensions appear, forcing one to review one's value system and get back in touch with one's surroundings. In this soli-lunar aspect of Cancer, the Moon, fortunately, remains at home and balances the solar failures while bringing a positive side to this conjunction.
In this particular case, the meeting of the Moon and the Sun in Cancer acts on the level of emotions. A specific power game engages in an unconscious struggle of the "old" against the "new." This confrontation of opposing wills can develop an unhealthy climate. Confronting oneself through a strange fog, one must be wary of a tendency to act according to one's own rules or to row against the current. Natives whose Moon is dominant in their natal chart will be particularly sensitive to these sea mists. They will sometimes be assaulted by the environment's hostility, by inexplicable jealousies or confronted with their shadow. This double negative is to be recognized in all clarity. To change the situation, these natives must evolve. The New Moon consists of a small growth crisis and allows all hopes. On the Cancer-Capricorn axis, the conjunction concentrates the Cancer values. It is a perfect time to solve problems related to motherhood in all its forms: in relationships or the future.
The strength of Cancer is inner strength. Its power deployed out of love or compassion achieves goals. It is necessary to seize the ball and transform the attempt. Perhaps it is a question of giving up unanswered questions, of no longer arguing wrongly, of ceasing to create situations contrary to our serenity. The New Moon is an opportunity to offer to our astonished eyes and the eyes of others, a vade mecum of psychic comfort.
Time, material, or spiritual heritage, past and present, are strong themes of the Cancer-Capricorn axis. The questions come from far away, sometimes from another life of which we have only fragments of memory. The New Moon stirs sensations and impressions, the feeling of "déjà vu" agitates the limbo of the mind; some are confronted with "unexplained" encounters, unscheduled appointments, and fleeting memories. A word on the "tip of the tongue" and the impossibility of putting one's finger on the image could give some natives a hard time.
The influence of Saturn, which approaches Aquarius and sits at the trigon of Venus in Gemini, can be a great help to some people in reuniting. We see old acquaintances again during the weekend or feel a strange feeling in front of strangers!
The Mars-Neptune conjunction in Pisces is the ideal accomplice to the New Moon. It finds an echo that multiplies. As the hours go by, the emotional plethora emanates from the astral climate. It is necessary to rationalize all information before following one's intuition or exposing one's perception of things.
The struggle to force events without clearly defined objectives and a project that does not reach maturity may be a result of the New Moon. Natives engaged in new ventures must consolidate their position before they succeed.
The light scattered by the Moon in Cancer contains the esoteric force of Mother Nature's great movements. She regulates the tides and the passage of souls from the shores of eternity to our earthly world. The Ancient Egyptians represented the sign of Cancer by a scarab beetle known as "the sphere of the soul." Thanks to the humidity of its water, fertilized by the solar rays, life projected there is to be accomplished.
The solar-lunar conjunction is thus positioned by the motivation that animates us and the desires that we express. These desires must be formulated clearly and precisely to be born into the world. First of all, it is necessary to gain objectivity; the rest of the lunar cycle will take care of it. To grow, structure, propose, and finally realize, this is what is recommended by the sign of Capricorn, which, in the face of Cancer, plays its role as regulator. All of the influxes form a backdrop on which our unconscious is imprinted. It is for this reason that it is necessary to remain on standby; the New Moon pushes us back and incites us to act in a sometimes unthinking manner.
The need to apprehend things in all their truth and assimilate them: the lunar function, accompanies a development in our relationship to the world. It is a matter of fulfilling one's truth and making it shine with the Sun's brilliance. The profound identity of the being and their individuality will thus be revealed.
The New Moon in Cancer sows the seed of rebirth; it promises us the coming of better days.
Definition of the New Moon:
The cycle of the Moon lasts about 29 days, starting with the New Moon. We see the Moon grow into the Full Moon. Then it shrinks until the next New Moon.
During the New Moon, the star of the night is invisible, hidden in the Earth's shadow. It is not observable since it is totally dark.
The New Moon is a sign of a new beginning, a moment in life when we start something, such as a project, or even a child, often unconsciously. It is the time of the month when we are most likely to succeed in our goals.
The New Moon is about relationships. It gives great vitality, impulsiveness, and sensitivity.
People born during a New Moon have considerable energy, a bursting impulse, but this conjunction of lights causes confusion and subjectivity induced by an exacerbated sensitivity.
