Today is the Cancer New Moon. New Moons provide a burst of energy and emphasize the sign in our zodiac that takes some precedence over the next two weeks in a more active way. Cancer is a very self protective cardinal sign which means it may act in aggressive ways but not necessarily overt in the same way as Aries. As a matter of fact I always like to say that Cancer is Aries energy turned inside out. The fierce action this sign takes can often be triggered by unconscious urges that push ones fight or flight instincts. A good image around Cancerian energy is that of a Mother bear fighting to protect her cubs from outside danger. Cancer is very, very concerned with keeping a protective shell around its soft, delicate and sensitive center. A Mother bear is very nurturing and yet when she feels her den, cubs or home is invaded she will lash out with a ferocity that is a force to behold in order to protect her own, her family, her security and her emotional center. Another image that comes to mind is the monster from the movie ALIEN. If you examine the theme of that movie she is just looking for a place to nest, start a family and lay her eggs and she will do anything to make a new home for herself and her family.
Family means so much to this sign so we will focus on what that means in our lives right now especially as we are coming out of a long period of Covid lockdown. What, who, where, and why are the questions to ask concerning how to satisfy one's needs regarding the issues and definitions surrounding the word "family". How are you defining that term? How are you establishing a stronger sense of bonding and security so that your core needs are being met? It's of utmost importance to feel safe and sound with a strong concrete base from which to go out and explore the world knowing that there is always a loving home waiting for you upon your return. It's time to focus on establishing a strong home base.
Cancer is always determined to get its needs met even if it acts in selfish ways. When it feels safe and secure then it opens up its home to others but when it feels threatened it holds on for dear life and doesn't allow anyone into its inner sanctum.
In this time period nurture your heart, your family and honor your roots and history and remember from where you came and where you are going. This sign often can be sentimental about the past and lost memories of youth. Memories are wonderful if they inform the present and future but they're not so great when the tendency is to escape into the past because you're afraid of the future. We should learn from the past but its never a good idea to live in the past for too long. Take a trip down memory lane but don't stay to long at the fair!
