24 JUNE 2017, CANCER, Supermoon YES, Eclipse NO
This Cancer New Moon is all about the true meaning of home and belonging. What is ‘true home’? What is your purest vibe of ‘home’ without all the cultural overlays, rules and expectations? Each individual family is a culture unto itself with laws of its own, everything from being like the mafia to the hippies. Families with similar values unite in neighbourhoods, then across cities and countries through webs of genealogy and community. At this Cancer New Moon, the definition of family extends beyond planet earth and out to the galaxy. Uranus makes a trine alignment to the Galactic Centre, the ‘cosmic womb/origins/home’ of our whole solar system. Many who explore spirituality and the theme of spiritual belonging/family often wonder about their galactic origins, which might be quite different to the vibe of the biological family they were born into. But interestingly, each human family bloodline back through generations links into ancestral stories that are important to the soul. Even if you feel radically different from your birth family, the emotional themes and stories that belong to your family also belong to you and might indicate something about your own soul heritage. Even if your soul originated elsewhere, it’s here on earth now, and its story is linked with that of your birth family until you have digested the ‘soul food’ necessary to your journey offered by that family. Cancer is the zodiac sign most often associated with themes of emotional bonding, nourishment and belonging. Mars and Venus both create angles to Pluto at this New Moon helping us see some of the hidden love/safety/security bargains that often go on in families and to purify them to a sense of ‘namaste’ – ‘the divine spark in me respects/sees/honours the divine spark in you’.
