Tonight/Tomorrow’s New Moon in Cancer @2:25BST (21:25EST) accents
deeply emotional reactions to issues that can make one feel defensive
and want to crawl back into the proverbial crab shell. There's also a
tendency to be impressionable, absorbing other's emotions easily.
Psychic interconnection heightens when Sun and Moon are in Cancer - all of which may or may not be a good thing, depending upon how this profound sensitivity to others is used.
Sun & Moon, ‘The Lights’, are also making a several complex
connections in the sky, involving a helpful aspect to karmic Saturn, as
well as being conjunct both, informative Mercury and dynamic Mars; these
'relationship' planets are also in Cancer, sparking off a potential new
and passionate way of communicating how one cares, which is hopefully
with creativity and kindness (perhaps even in reaction to all the
heavier degradation we see around). And even though some interactions
may raise the temperature, the trick is to catch any anger, or
resentement and redirect any hot-headed passion (encountered or
generated) into creative pursuits that make everyone feel secure.
All these planets in Cancer can also bring out a mothering instinct
that kicks into action to relieve suffering, show mercy, and nurture and
look after others as if they were family. This is the way of ‘The
Bodhisattva’, a person who defers Buddhahood in preference to being a
source of unconditional love, for all beings – not just human beings.
This New Moon also sparks the infamous 7-hit Uranus-Pluto square (the
vibration of which lingers into 2018), which has been representing
society’s radical changes, through technology (among other things). Our
own ability to be the agent of our own change and exercise compassionate
in any given situation may seem like a lot to ask for, but the heavens
do tend to incline and not compel.
Lastly, this lunation also
sees one of the year's most important Buddhist Wheel-Turning days,
Chökhor Düchen, on the 20th July. , The 4th day of the 6th month in the
Tibetan Calendar, is a karma-mulitplied day, commemorating the Buddha’s
first teaching on ‘The Four Nobel Truths’. It is also when The Lights
make their first positive aspect to each other enroute to a
heart-healing Full Blue moon, July 31st.
