Summer’s vitality is sure to heat up during the July 2021 New Moon, which arrives on July 9 as it enters the cardinal sign of Cancer. In astrology, the new Moon phase is like a clean slate: it’s a chance for us to rejuvenate ourselves, as well as to set intentions, inspect our current goals, and let go of things that get in our way.
This particular New Moon will be under the watchful eye of Cancer, who is the mother of all that nurtures, protects, and maintains genuine relationships. Since this New Moon is brimming with Cancer energy (the Moon rules Cancer), it will be especially powerful in how we approach both our emotions and our personal relationships.
Most zodiac signs will be called upon to examine their emotional responses, such as how we assert our emotions within our close friendships and how we comfort others. For the zodiac signs less affected by the July New Moon, things will be less chaotic.
July is an intense month from an astrological perspective, so we need to try to be as calm as we can. As Cancer is associated with the fourth house of astrology, the most private part of our natal chart, this New Moon can evoke themes of family and home and what is most personal to us.
If you’re one of the lucky zodiac signs least affected by the July New Moon, you’ll have an easier time navigating the changes, while also examining your closest relationships. Sit back, relax and let the Moon work its transformative magic.
The conflicting aspect between Venus and Uranus may cause concern for some signs, but for the cardinal Aries, this conflict is seen more as an opportunity to revise and change your inner circle to better meet your emotional needs.
Venus will move in the fire sign Leo, which is all about the self, passion, and vitality.
What excites you and gives you purpose will be illuminated by the New Moon, allowing you to focus on the relationships that make you most comfortable.
Close bonds are easily formed with the mutable social sign, Gemini. Your ability to charm anyone through conversation will help you navigate the changes brought by the New Moon in Cancer.
Since Cancer’s healing energy will be overloaded (Cancer is ruled by the Moon), this lunar phase will serve as a reminder to express emotional gratitude for your closest friends.
You might also feel inspired to expand your inner circle or create meaningful relationships with unlikely friends. Either way, you have a knack for rolling with the punches, so accepting the changes will seem like a breeze.
It’s no secret that you take your personal relationships seriously, Libra. The way you assert yourself in your partnerships is one of your many strengths that will come in handy during this new lunar phase.
Taking initiative in your relationships is natural to you, so despite the conflict between your ruling sign, Venus, and Uranus, you are likely to overcome any changes granted to you with grace.
However, the New Moon is more of an open invitation to pamper yourself by taking care of yourself. Take advantage of this lunar phase to recharge your batteries for your next social gathering.
