This week on June 23, 2017, the stars will bring us a New Moon in the zodiac sign of Cancer the Crab. Get ready for some cosmic luck, as this is a kinder, friendly, and easier New Moon, that will feel emotionally more hot and cold than the ones we have seen over the past few months.

The New Moon comes along every 28 days. It is the beginning of a new lunar cycle, but every New Moon is different, especially when it’s in sensitive Cancer. Usually, the reason for these cosmic differences is due to other astrological aspects in the heavens transiting at the same time. There are some hard aspects between other planets, but the good news is our Cancer New Moon Predictions for June 23rd look positive and uplifting on a consciousness level. Thank goodness, I think we could all use a break this coming week.

New Moon in Cancer, Brings a Fresh Start

The Cancer New Moon brings a fresh start, but at times emotions run hot, and the moody crab sign can be confrontational. Imagine it like you are holding up a mirror to your face, and the reflection is reality staring you back in the face. OUCH! The New Moon in Cancer, however, will be much gentler in some ways, and this is partly due to an alignment with Mercury with makes it a more friendly astrological combination.

This Cancer New Moon is far sweeter, and the end of this month will be about fresh starts in both your personal and professional life. If you want to set a new personal goal for yourself, or start a project, or meet a new love, then this is the perfect time to do it. With Mercury in the mix anything involving communication is favored, so don’t be afraid to express yourself and make your voice heard. Get out there and meet some new people.

Fresh starts can also mean leaving something behind. If you want to kick a bad habit like smoking or eating junk food, now is the time to do it. The stars will be aligned in your favor and your diet might actually work this time.

New Moon In Cancer

This New Moon is in Cancer is one of the most nurturing signs in the zodiac. It is also one of the most emotional signs, so this week you may feel a little more sentimental than usual. Use this to your advantage, however, and reach out to those close to you or friends you have lost touch with. If you are feeling nostalgic, then think about going home for the weekend to visit the family or call up an old friend or lover :).

Cancer is also closely associated with female figures, particularly maternal ones, so this is the perfect time to re-connect with a mother figure or female relative. If you socialize, then you may find that you are drawn to women in your social circle, and this could lead to some collaboration or at least a deep conversation that will nourish your soul. The key to this New Moon in Cancer is to be open with your feelings, as this will bring healing and new opportunities your way.

New Moon Global Astrology Horoscope Predictions

When we have a New Moon in Cancer, however, we also have to look at how it is going to manifest on a global scale. Individually it can feel entirely different on a personal level, versus the world around us.

One thing we need to look at with a Cancer New Moon is not only a rise in sentimental feelings but also a strong sense of patriotism. There is also a strong feeling with a Cancer New Moon of wanting to close ranks and spend time with those closest to us. This, however, is why it makes a difference if we look at it individually or globally. If we spend the New Moon visiting old friends and reminiscing about past times, then this is a positive thing. On a world scale? Perhaps not so much.

We might see patriotism come to the fore, and watch how the Cancer New Moon plays out on the national debate stage around the Affordable Care Act and people in power may feel like their loyalties are being tested under whether or not to vote yes or no for the new health care bill.

With everything going on in the United States at the moment with the President Trump-Comey issue or the United Kingdom which has just declared a hung parliament, it’s easy to see how this might come about. People will be asked to pick a side, and we might see others close to us forming alliances and groups but at the expense of others.

This sense of patriotism around a Cancer New Moon is also positive on an individual level as we should be proud of our home and our country, but we should NOT forget that we should also take care of those less fortunate than us.

Our Cancer New Moon horoscope prediction is that it will have an effect for several weeks on our hearts and minds. We can expect this emotional effect will last until the next lunar cycle, but it will be most potent in the following week leading up to the 4th of July. (Senate vote on health care is expected before the holiday).

On June 25th, we will see fiery Mars and powerful Jupiter in a tense square, and global politics are center stage once again and it’s time to take action. It will be intense, and the Cancer New Moon may just be what ushers in all the drama and could bring the nation together.

On a personal level, remember that the Cancer New Moon is bringing positive opportunities our way and we should harness the power of good vibrations and put some new plans in place that you can expect to come to fruition in August 2017. If we want to push back against the global political consequences of the Cancer New Moon, then this would be a great time to throw a community event, an inter-faith mixer, or any other type of celebration where people from all walks of life come together to celebrate life.

So get out and share the love! We need it now more than ever.
