Dimension of Sensitivity and Compassion: New Moon in Cancer 2015


New Moon in Cancer

July 15, 2015

By Maharani Rutan©

The first day of July seems like monsoon season; between heavy rain and flooding, some people are not happy about the rain as many would expect.

But one of the most wonderful moments of July will be the new moon in Cancer at 23 degrees. Cancer, being one of the most emotional and compassionate signs in the zodiac, will enjoy this fresh start on July 15, 2015. This will spark the change for many at approximately 9:24 pm EST & 6:24 PST.


This could be a sensitive time that may expose some disputes that need to be deliberated with regard to both money and domestic dealings. Waves of emotion pass and then begin to work things out in a calm environment. This could be a warning that your domestic or emotional situation is about to change. This moon will affect all Cancers with their sun sign in Cancer, including those who have Cancer in their charts.

Usually, the new moon brings joyous times – to breathe and wake up to a new dawn. Embrace this energy as it will not reappear at the exact degree between now and 2045. The closest it will come would be at 22 degrees Cancer with a new moon in 2026.


This New Moon in Cancer expresses distress as a lack of contentment and security which may be feared by the world at stress. Devotion, safeguarding, and precautions in our food and water systems will be in emphasized in the media. A longing to live a more modest life and be black and white in economic reasoning is a theme for this new moon.

Not only will the new moon in Cancer bring a new way of thinking and being, but another topic will be that mars entered cancer on June 24, 2015. Cancer people have been known to be passive /aggressive at times however, when Mars is in Cancer it is amplified 10 times. This does not mean they will be angry but they will stand firm when they feel trampled on. Often they become the victim as their natural tendency is to protect their own. With mars in Cancer it will strengthen the family bonds but it can also cause disagreements with family members. During this time they may be predisposed to to psychological complaints. Additionally Mercury is also in Cancer so I would not be surprised if there are many conversations about children, family, and reconnection with family members.


In addition to Cancer, Venus is entering Virgo a couple of days after this new moon. Venus has been sitting pretty in Leo for a long time but now she will knock the door of Virgos. This will not last long however, as she will only be there for 13-14 days and she will go back to Leo. When Venus retrogrades in Virgo, there will be issues surrounding women, love, or other matters of feminine nature. Venus also influences money, relationships, and things that are valuable to many. But when Venus comes back into Virgo in August, along with sweet Jupiter, you can bet sparks will fly bringing lotto jackpots for many Virgos.

For now the new moon will signal a time of new ideas. The New Moon is an asking (invocation) time, and a time to formulate what our needs are according to the prospects available (through Cancer this month). This is the time to Reap, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on richness and affluence. It will be natural to have a high idiosyncratic personality; strive to achieve and fulfill your own personal strategies and ideals. You tend to react spontaneously and passionately.


Since the Moon rules Cancer, lunar influences are strongest and most easily expressed when focused through this sign. The moon greatly influences character, the unconscious, and the feelings and patterns of intuitive actions. When the Moon is in Cancer it is a time of stressed emotions and great compassion with people responding to life through emotions rather than reason. During this much respected period be careful not to emotionally wound others or allow yourself to be wounded. Generally, people will be passive, easy-going, sentimental, loving, and nurturing. Unfortunately, this motherly expression of caring is often expressed with food and it is easy to overeat. Cancer is a nurturing sign and the most fertile sign of the zodiac. With the moon in Cancer, it is a good time for creating life and for growth.

As the moon in Cancer represents Encouragement, Expressive, Delicate, Creative, and Romantic, it is my suggestion that you purchase a pink candle and carve your name, and the name of your loved one, through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or inspiration oil and chant Psalm 70. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.


Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of purpose. When it comes to finding a nourishing relationship with another person, it is of the maximum importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Cancerian moon is:



Om Chandraya Namaha”

(Om chahn drah yah nahm – ah- ha)

Om, and salutation to Chandra, resident spirit of the moon.


With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmations, even if there is the slightest change, and create new ones. The perfect number for aspirations is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.

Remember to never make the affirmations begin with “I want”, they must be worded “I need to receive the wisdom to retain…”

Thank you for coming to me to seek advice. I hope that I have been providing you the solutions or solace that you need for certain situations in your life.

Each individual chart has its own unique prospective and I recommend you seek Leslie Hale for personal astrology readings, or you may seek any of my highly recommended astrologers here.

Be safe and enjoy, play, and splash like no other time; with compassion and warmth for everyone and everything.
