New Moon in Cancer & Leo Time Begins: July 19th-25th, 2020

Sunday: Pause and reflect on this day before New Moon. What inner shifts are taking place as eclipse season ends? Last month we had a solar eclipse with New Moon, and now 4 weeks and one Mercury retrograde later, the effects and realizations settle in (or even reawaken!). Early July was not a favorable time for major decisions and actions. Yet sometimes we are forced to make them anyway. Is there something you'd like a re-take on? This New Moon provides a chance to reverse or yield. Today, the Cancer Moon met Mercury after midnight, aligns with erratic Uranus and squares courageous Mars. Mixed emotions and mood swings are likely. Inner conflict may include how much to retreat versus make a bold move. Mars in Aries is very much opposite Cancer Moon, and some may experience this as conflict with others who want to either push really hard or do nothing at all. Wear Orange today.

Monday: Cancer Moon opposite Jupiter and in harmony with Neptune overnight. On this day of New moon we seek healing. Both planets are retrograde, and we revisit memories, dreams, and also decisions we've made. Rather than regret, consider this a second chance New Moon. It is again in Cancer, water sign of home, family, parents (especially mother), the women in our lives, and our emotional realm. Pluto is also opposite the Moon at 5:04 am EDT, highlighting the shadows, depths and mysteries. It's a peak day for a psychic reading, for mediums to channel ancestral wisdom, and for personal meditation regarding emotional decisions.  New Moon at 1:33 pm EDT is at 28 degrees of Cancer, and following New Moon there's a Saturn retrograde opposition from Capricorn. The Saturn influence adds a level of seriousness and need for maturity and wisdom. Notice how this speaks to your current contemplation. All these retrograde planets mean we may need to reverse again later, or to be patient for the right timing. But Mercury and Venus are direct and things can't wait forever. So make the next best decision and set intentions from the purest heart space. Void Moon 1:55 pm to 4:16 pm EDT. Leo Moon takes over with brightness. But there's one more opposition today-the Sun and Saturn. This leads to immediate announcements and perhaps more confidence. Still, with all the oppositions and with Saturn involved, there's sure to be uncertainty and mixed feelings even when action is taken and matters decided. It's an eventful New Moon, for sure. Today's color is White.

Tuesday: Leo Moon waxing aligns with Mars in Aries. Brave, confident and potentially headstrong characterize this trine. It's positive for forward moves and taking responsible risks, such as trying out for something or interviewing for a new position, performing in public (or online!), or making a necessary change. Uranus in Taurus adds that sense of surprise or urgency. If it's urgency, think twice before you act. These fire signs, where Moon and Mars live, energize and inspire. Void of course Moon starts after a sextile to Venus in Gemini at 8:27 pm, signaling lots of communication, news and social connection tonight. Wear Red.

Wednesday: Leo energies intensify as the Sun changes signs at 4:37 am EDT. Babies born before that time are Cancer, and from then on, Leo. The Moon makes no major aspects and is void of course until 7:40 pm EDT. It's a great day for vacation and leisure and less reliable for business or purchases. Mercury aligns with Uranus for more surprises and changes to be announced or acted on right away. Spontaneous events, conversations and decisions are likely, though big decisions are not favored under void Moon. That ends with Virgo Moon time 7:40 pm on. Wear Gold.

Thursday: Virgo Moon aligns with Uranus in Taurus and Mercury in Cancer for a continuation of yesterday's events. Practical steps and discussions are favored. It's a problem solving day. Family and home matters should take priority. Put your feet in the sand or grass, work the garden and feel connection to the earth and water that sustain us. Wear Brown. 

Friday: Waxing Moon in Virgo squares Venus in Gemini and opposes Neptune. We'll need to be flexible as different approaches and plans will be suggested. Not everything will go over easily. If something seems too unrealistic, it probably is. Now the Moon will align with one planet after another in Capricorn between 7 am and 7 pm approximately. All are retrograde and speak of unfinished and unresolved matters that need tending to. Decisions made this summer may  not be 'permanent', but steps do need to be taken and temporary things put in place. Organize any such thing. From 7:08 pm to 9:54 pm EDT, the Moon is void of course, then shifts to Libra. Take those hours easy and plan little for tonight. Wear Blue.

Saturday: Libra Moon in harmony with the Sun overnight makes for an optimistic morning and a desire to connect with those we love or create with. Social plans, distanced appropriately of course, are favored. It's a good day for a summer gathering or wedding. Tonight, the tone changes though, and appears more challenging with a square to Mercury creating tension. Shortly before midnight, the Moon opposes Mars. It may be hard to find compromise or consensus, and arguments could heat up. Avoid confrontation or taboo topics while the astrological heat is on. Today's color is Lavender.
