Posted by on Jul 18, 2020 in Astrology, Chinese Astrology, Full Moon | 0 comments

July 20 2020 at 10:33 am PDT is a new Moon in Cancer, the second Cancer new Moon in a row. This is because 2020 is a leap year with two additional lunar cycles. There have been two Metal Snake months in May and June in Chinese astrology, and two Cancer new Moons in June and July in Western astrology.

The Moon is ruled by Cancer, a very comfortable sign for the Moon. Cancer rules the 4th house of home, family, and nurturing. Continue to take care of self and others, focus on family connections, and creative ways to nurture.

This new Moon begins Water Sheep month in Chinese astrology. Sensitive Water Sheep is a kind and gentle soul, bringing a peaceful and gracious tone to this lunar month. Sheep is a symbol of love and peace, making this the time for healing after the exciting yet chaotic energy of the previous Horse month.

The new Moon and Sun in Cancer are opposite Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon represents your emotions and inner life, whereas the Sun represents your ego and selfhood. Oppositions involve other people.

The Jupiter opposition could bring exaggerated feelings for personal freedom, rejecting duties and responsibilities.

The Saturn opposition aids in the emotional rebellion against rules and structure, especially the government, the economy, and politics. There could be feelings of alienation, especially during Covid-19.

The Pluto opposition can bring intense encounters with authority figures. Subconscious forces can create fundamental changes. We can collectively build new structures and experience transformation on both a personal level and a global scale.

During these challenging oppositions, contact me for your tarot reading or astrology forecast for guidance. Emotional and spiritual understanding is for all, and is deepest for Water signs Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio and those born in Sheep, Rabbit, and Pig years.

Happy new Moon,
