The New Moon solar eclipse in Cancer on July 21, 2009 will be a time of emotional renewal or upheaval, depending on how you deal with this powerful energy. Even more intriguing, the New Moon occurs in the 29th (last) degree of Cancer, also known as the karmic or anaretic degree.
The 29th degree intensifies the characteristics of that sign. It’s like the final lesson it has to teach before it transits into the next sign. In this case, it’s all about feelings, because Cancer rules emotional expression. So during the next two weeks or so, you may experience some inner volatility that rattles your comfort zone. Try to stay centered, and avoid getting pulled into the emotional dramas of those around you.
What’s more, this is the second Moon in Cancer over the last four weeks. The first one occurred on June 22. Since New Moons signify new beginnings, the next two weeks (and beyond) will offer a second chance to get it right in whatever you’re struggling with emotionally.
Pursue the past
Cancer is the most sentimental sign of the zodiac. As such, it can prompt you to delve into (or wallow in) the past. Memories will arise to heal or haunt you over the next few weeks. In a positive way, a foray into the past can bring up emotional issues you need to resolve. But it can also keep you stuck in a rut. The trick is to examine your inner life without getting trapped in the past. Clinging to people, habits and attitudes that make you feel secure is a surefire way to halt your personal growth.
Nurture your soul
Since Cancer is the sign of motherhood, you may suddenly feel a longing to return to a childlike state and be cared for. If you find yourself needing a break from the demands of work, kids or even your partner, take some time to nurture yourself. You don’t have to toss out the kids or the spouse – a bubbly soak in the tub might do it – or a night out with friends. Even a stroll along a shady trail can feed your soul. You just need to make the time to do it!
