Not only do we have the beautiful New Moon in watery Cancer, but July is also bringing us a powerful Solar Eclipse (and Lunar Eclipse later this month with the Full Moon!), and many more intense planetary movements that we will get into.
Solar Eclipses only occur with the New Moon, and their impact starts 6 months prior, and the energy lasts for a further 6 months. The energies of Cancer (July New Moon) and Capricorn (July Full Moon) has been a theme throughout 2019 as a whole and will continue on into 2020.
Let’s touch on Cancer first.
CANCER NEW MOON + SOLAR ECLIPSE ENERGIES
Think, everything to do with your inner world and filling your soul with unconditional love. Cancer is the Crab – it is our shell, our shelter and comfort, our roots, where we come from, our history, our traditions, our warm home and earth. Cancer is birth, softness, gentleness, unconditional love. Cancer is the link between water and the moon, it is the womb – a portal where the souls enter through to the world of matter.
A beautiful thing about this Solar Eclipse is intuition – expect it to be supercharged, especially is you are already quite attuned to your soul and intuition. We will truly be listening to that inner voice and moving towards the desires that are deep within us.
Not only will we experience a heightened intuition – but we will follow it. We will be truly listening to our inner desires, setting the foundation and making the decisions that will drive major change in our lives. Cancer may be a little emotional (maybe not a little?) – but it is a pioneering sign, and during this New Moon Solar Eclipse you are going to feel that energy through every inch of your being.
With major decisions and change may come fear – fear of losing stability and security, this fear will keep you small, remember that you are strong enough to continue straight through fear. ‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’, right?
This big energy event will have us focused on creating something new, setting the foundation to build upon – or even ‘getting back’ to something or somewhere we belong. We will have the awareness to truly get to the core of the things around us, understanding them at a deeper level and being able to work with life instead of against it.
AND THERES SO MUCH MORE..
I’m going to say this now – July is energetically, a big month, with many complex and opposing energies. The Sun, Venus, Mercury and North Node will all be opposed by Saturn and Pluto at some point leading to intense exchanges and powerful battles of will… and this blog is only scratching the surface of the immense depth that is present right now.
Ohhh and P.S we have Mercury back in Retrograde on the 7th July – just to add some more spice to the month, you know!
FINDING BALANCE IN THE UNBALANCED
By the second week of July, the Sun in Cancer has moved into opposition of Saturn and Pluto sitting in Capricorn. Saturn is the planet of structures and conditioning, Pluto is the planet of change, secrets and raw power, and Capricorn energy focuses strongly on tradition.
You can probably see how this creates imbalance – between Saturn and Pluto, but also between this energy and the New Moon and Solar Eclipse. We have Cancer’s intuitive energies flowing through us pulling towards desire and change – and we have the strong influence of Saturn and Capricorn asking for tradition, regulation and sternness.
We can expect questioning of traditions and patterns that have been in place for many years. We can expect our strong desire to create a nurturing inner and outer environment to be challenged by tradition, regulations and conditioning.
This is all happening on an inner level, immediate outer world level, and a larger societal level – having an impact on how we live personally and how we live in the outer world. Pretty interesting, huh?
INNER HEALING, OUTER HEALING
Dreamy Neptune in Pisces trine North Node – giving us a break from stern Saturn: This beautiful placement and relation to Saturn will facilitate emotional and environmental growth. And with Cancer being so beautifully in tune with water, there will be a lot of energy around detoxification and water pollution. This is a powerful energy for making our beautiful planet a healthier environment and ensuring its long-term survival – with an emphasis on the impact of each individuals actions.
Venus in Cancer – making our immediate environment pleasing, comforting and soothing: Don’t be surprised if you find yourself re-decorating and purchasing new furnishings. And with this emphasis on our Mother Earth, we are wanting to do this this in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Cue the recycling, upcycling and gardening – especially if you are in the Northern Hemisphere!
Mars in Leo – standing up for Mother Earth: Here we can expect a more dramatic and creative approach to the protection of our environment. This could be through some sort of event, concert, fundraiser or even ‘influential’ people individuals using their voices and power to raise awareness.
Here’s to healing our inner world, and our outer world – Mother Earth.
Oh and did I mention this was just the first half of the month? More to come on the latter half, and the Capricorn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.

CANCER NEW MOON + SOLAR ECLIPSE RITUAL
This is a beautiful time to work with water! Water is highly sensitive, it can receive, hold and transmit energy. And – Cancer is a water sign and is ruled by the Moon, so lets take advantage of this energy.
The New Moon represents new beginnings and is considered a growth phase, while the Solar Eclipse signifies major changes in our lives. So – now is a perfect time to make big changes and enter a new phase in our lives.
It is a time to start fresh, to make a wish, to set new intentions, make new plans and send it all out into the Universe. By using water, we can increase your energetic sensitivity to attract with ease what you desire.
WHAT TO DO
Under the New Moon light, place a bottle or jar with purified water outside overnight to soak up the New Moon’s energies. This will charge the water – which will be ready for use by noon the next day.
Hold the bottle of charged water between your palms and tune in with thoughts of love and purity for a few minutes, breathe and find your calm quiet internal space.
Take a sip. Let it nourish you. You should notice a different between this water and uncharged water. You can use this charged water to transform and charge ordinary water by putting a few drops into your glass or bottle. Store the charged water in a cool dark place.
