New Moon in Cancer: As you connect the dots, you will see that there have been
signs along the way guiding you from one point in your life to the next.

Why is this happening to me? Why did I have to go through that? What's the message I need to get from this experience? These are a few questions that may come up in our mind whenever we go through something we deem to be unpleasant. And many of us have probably heard the saying, 'Everything happens for a reason'. But how can that help us when we feel like we have no clue the real reason behind an experience? What then, can we do to understand better the experience? Well, the fact that you're reading this right now tells me that you've come out alive — and much stronger than you may believe yourself to be. Regardless of what have happened to us in the past, or how we feel about a particular experience, know that they are all part of the dots. The dots that connect us from one point in our life to the next. So instead of seeing those unpleasant experiences as obstacles, we can shift our perspective by seeing them more as signposts. Signposts that show us the way towards our most authentic path. A path that is more in an alignment with who we truly are. A path that is more in tuned with our deep inner truth. Trust that regardless of where we may have been, a new day always brings with it a new way forward. Release the need to find immediate answers. Instead, let the dots guide us to walk in the direction of our dreams. Trust and follow our heart.

Happy New Moon! The Moon is in Cancer conjoining with Mercury, Mars and the Sun, marking an especially powerful and dynamic New Moon in the sign of the Crab. Like the sea creature, this New Moon brings to us the chance to move forward, and become more at one with our emotions and inner sense of home. Guiding us to focus more fully on what's possible for us in the future, and see more clearly what we need to ultimately leave behind in the past. Although this may not be easy, because the Cancer energy tends to hold on to things from the past. But with Mercury and Mars close by, we will finally have the courage to open a new chapter in our life. One step at a time. One moment at a time. One feeling at a time. The Moon herself feels at home in the sign of Cancer. Ruling the 4th House in Astrology - or the House of Home and Family, Cancers are known to be loyal, caring and dependable bunch. They may seem oversensitive or moody at times, but they are generally more in touch with their emotions than most people of other signs. The 4th House itself is about our base, ancestry, heritage, and roots of the Self. It also represents physical structures (real estate), as well as history and traditions. The New Moon in Cancer opens up a new doorway into our emotional world. Helping us to realize that it is time we become the captain of our soul.

With the Moon forming a trine to Neptune Rx and Saturn Rx, try to move inwards and use our energy where it is most needed. Our perseverance will pay off, even before the end of the week. We will be like a sponge, sucking up information from books and people and still be looking for more. Do not close the door too quickly on something we are not so sure about. Instead, ask advice from someone who is older or with more experience, it could turn out to be something worthwhile. Remember to give our imagination more freedom and we can accomplish a lot more with new insights that come our way. All that we have wished for can work in our favour to bring things together that can contribute to our happiness. Know that joy is the highest energy of all. It's the magical sense that anything is possible. Joy comes from appreciating the gifts in each moment. A joyful outlook brings the freedom we desire, while meeting our responsibilities at the same time. 

The Moon is also forming an opposition to Pluto Rx and a square to Uranus, and we should be open to release those emotions, as this time is made for us. We can draw a lot of strength from this energy that can lead us into something very transformative. We could be very ambitious with new opportunities that come along and we will leave no stone unturned to reach our goals. An emotional experience may leave us feeling uncomfortable, but the planets in Cancer encourage our mental ability to become more aware. We can learn a lot from other people's point of view. And we will like the change that comes about as new inspirations sink in. Put those worries aside, live and laugh for a change. A New Moon is a time for new beginnings. A time when we can plant new seeds and start again. A time to face old feelings so that they can be released and cleared. Let go of an unwanted pattern by forgiving one or more family members (including ourself). Release any guilt or fear regarding asking for what we want by clarifying our desires. We are in the process of healing our heart. Follow the dots.
