The Big Picture:
During this solstice week, the Sun moves into Cancer and we also have a New Moon in Cancer. This focus on the celestial Crab brings nurturing energy to the fore, so it’s a week for kindness, empathy and understanding. Since Cancer energies are financially shrewd, it’s also a perhaps surprisingly good week for business ventures.
New Moon energies help you to re-organize your home life. Better scheduling with your partner may help to minimize time you both spend on chores and routine tasks, so that you and your loved ones can spend more quality time together.
This week’s New Moon is all about communication, so it’s an ideal time to get back in touch with distant or estranged family members, or old friends. Reach out and make new connections too, both personally and in business.
If you need to stretch your finances, look at your hobbies. You excel at something, yet you’re not using that talent. You may not get rich with this, but the New Moon encourages you to use that skill to build a financial cushion.
With the Sun now in Cancer and a New Moon in your sign too, this is a mini New Year for you! Feel the optimism as you look ahead, and use these positive energies to plan the next twelve months. Dream big, as you have what it takes to succeed.
It’s a highly spiritual New Moon vibe for you, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself drawn towards a new or different faith. Follow your instincts, but don’t be misled by self-appointed experts or gurus.
This is one of your strongest weeks this year for networking, so don’t be shy – promote yourself and your skills. Meeting other people will be invigorating and useful too, so it truly is worth making the effort now.
The New Moon energies focus on your career – what a perfect time to seek a new job, or advancement in your current one! This is a bold and ambitious vibe, so set your sights high and don’t listen to negative self-talk.
You feel a strong connection with nature this week, driven by New Moon energies which urge you to explore and to reconnect with Mother Earth. Travel, if you can, but in any case spend as much time out of doors as possible. Experience the elements.
Self-help and self-improvement efforts get a boost from the New Moon, so your chances are good if you’re starting to kick a bad habit or to work on something which bothers you. Be kind to yourself, however – and take it one step at a time.
The New Moon falls in your house of romance, so it’s an excellent week for beginning a new relationship – or indeed, for healing and deepening an existing one. A strong soul to soul connection is possible with someone you meet now.
Problems are easier to solve as the New Moon sharpens your critical and analytical skills. It’s all rather logical and devoid of emotion, however, so don’t forget to figure the human factor into your freshly laid plans.
Your confidence soars during this New Moon, and it’s a fantastic time to show off your talents. If you’re single, this might also be a very flirtatious week. Social events are a lot of fun, and perfect places for meeting someone special.
