Super New Moon
New Moon in Cancer
June 23, 2017
For many, June has been a deeply connected emotional roller coaster ride. As soon as Mercury began to straighten out in May, and our lives were coming back together, the political waves shocked us. Then the international threats and killings disturbed the foundations, and just when we thought we were safe, it even hit home. However, this was nothing that was not predetermined in my blog of 2017.
I had said in my last blog that even though we will be glad when summer is finally here, we may not be so happy with the chaos that will seep through our veins (Read more about it here). This disorder is created by the energy of Saturn. In the areas of VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories), about 4 weeks before Saturn switches signs all hell breaks loose.
On one side, there is Sagittarius, which looks at what hinders people’s freedoms such as pressure, disrespect, religion, law, education, and feeling confined. On the other side is Scorpio, who rules over death, resurrection, things hidden, politics, secrets, other people’s money, and sometimes greed. If we put two and two together it would naturally be war. Besides, fire and water always make steam; but Saturn is still retrograde which means that these are issues of the past, therefore just for a moment, we must leave them behind.
When the sun officially entered Gemini on June 14, 2017, it became time to talk, but it was also the day of the shooting in Virginia. What did it tell us? I can truly perceive that we are just as vulnerable as anyone else. As a nation, we must have the courage to see to that no matter what country or nationality we came from, we must stand together as one nation to protect all citizens. Just as Guru (Jupiter) does Virgo at this time.
Virgo’s are glorified with luck and planting their own seeds as the last few months into Jupiter are bestowed onto them. While Cancer brings the glory of the new moon and the new beginning for many as a new path is greatly needed for nurturing and healing to begin.
However, any moon, whether a new moon or a full moon, can be emotional. But this new moon, especially, could be even more intense as it may reveal issues around money and domestic relations that need to be debated. You may have to let a few waves of emotion pass and then begin to work things out in a calm environment.
This could presage a change with your domestic or emotional situation. This moon will affect all Cancers with their sun sign in Cancer, including those who have Cancer in their charts. According to Hindu philosophies, the moon always represents the mind and the sun signifies the soul with its locators being the north and the south nodes (rahu and ketu).
I have always loved any moon in Cancer, whether a full moon or a new moon, but especially this new moon. This moon will also be our second, and last, Super New Moon of 2017. I have written about many super moons and in easiest terms, Super moon transpires when the midpoint of the moon is the closest of the focal point of the earth. Due to illusion, all super full or new moons look much bigger, and sometimes even brighter. Whereas the micro moon, like the one we had earlier this month (read about it here), looks further away and smaller.
The beautiful Super New moon will grace our skies on June 23, 2017 at 10:31pm EST and 7:31 PST at 2 degrees in Cancer; affecting all early born Cancers born June 21-27. This is a positive for those crabs that have difficulties with letting their emotions out. This kind of energy has not occurred since 2009, when it was at 1 degree in Cancer; when it was time to speak and let all the emotions out.
This New Moon in Cancer expresses grief as contentment and refuge have been disrupted by a world at war. Devotion, fortification, and precautions in our food and water systems will be emphasized in the news. A longing to live a more humble life will be seen, along with many economic choices which will be black or white (no grey areas) in nature.
Romance makes an intense comeback! The chart of the New Moon is the key to inspirations during the coming lunar month. The New Moon is an asking (invocation) time, and a time to express what our necessities are, according to the prospects available (through Cancer this month). This is the time to Reap, Entreat and be Grateful, and to work on fruitfulness and affluence.
The moon in Cancer brings encouragement, sentiments, compassion, dreams, and maudlin issues in our lives. The Squelchy Cancer Moon carries reminiscences of youthful, sincere motherly arms and loving traces for loved ones. Our hearts twirl in a sea of the earliest metaphors…. watch out for grumpiness!
There are tendencies to become sensitive ardently, and need to retreat into your shell sometimes. Resilient protectors of family and belief, although character maybe turn out to be unpredictable, people will come willingly for encouragement and care. You look to a wise and older person for shielding and nurturing. Care needs to be taken to avoid hurting the feelings of others, as well as having your own feelings hurt.
Since the Moon rules Cancer, cosmological stimulus are stoutest and most simply articulated when focused through this sign. The moon greatly impacts behavior, molding the intuitive and passion patterns. When the Moon is in Cancer, it is a time of anxious emotions and great sensitivity with people, causing them to respond to life through emotions rather than reason. During this much admired period, be cautious not to emotionally wound others or allow yourself to be wounded.
Generally, people will be un-receptive, laid-back, sentimental, loving, and nurturing. Unfortunately, this motherly expression of caring is often expressed with food and it is easy to overeat. Cancer is a fostering sign and the most bountiful sign of the zodiac. With the moon in Cancer, it is a good time for generating life and for growth.
Moon in Cancer represents Development, Passionate, Profound, Ingenious, and Emotional. It is my suggestion that you purchase a pink candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or inspiration oil and chant the 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 intention. When it comes to finding a satisfying relationship with another person, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.
This year I have chosen two or three mantras, one will be easier to pronounce for those whom are trying mantras for the first time. Also, for the more advanced users I recommend using both mantras provided. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Cancer moon is:
“Om Aing Kleeng Shreeng”
(Om aiiiinnnng cliiing shriiiing)
Om Hiranya Garbhaya Avyakta Rupine Namah
Maata Cha Paarvati Devi, Pitaa Devo Maheshvara Baandhavah Shiva Bhaktaacha, Svadesho Bhuvanatrayami… Hey Gauri Shankarardhangi Yatha Tvam Shankarpriyaa Tatha Mam Kuru Kalyaani Kaantkatam Sudurlabhaam
This Mantra opens the universal forces in your life and allows the righteous changes to occur.

For all Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio this is the last recap reading until the eclipse and the most opportune time to have a re-read if you not had one since March 2017.
