Tonight’s new moon in Cancer is giving us a second chance to revisit the intentions we set during the last new moon, which was also in Cancer. There were quite a few planets in retrograde during this time, so during tonight we may have a little less cosmic interference. If you struggled to adhere to your intentions over the past 30 days, it may have been due to these retrogrades as well as a few other challenging cosmic movements, forcing us to reflect on a wide array of important things, leaving us mentally and emotionally scattered.
Expect today’s new moon to once again welcome you to revisit those themes, albeit with a renewed perspective. Sometimes things don’t work out seamlessly the first time around, and that’s okay. This astrological timing may very well be intentional, especially since maternal and familial wounds related to love and home are things that many of us tend to struggle with. It’s no surprise that many people have love wounds, as this modern world we live in constantly bombards us with of falsely advertised ideas of love, giving us unrealistic expectations that lead us to disappointment.
New moon in Cancer is an opportunity for us to think about the way we give and receive love, and perhaps maybe even reimagining our definition of love as a whole in a more real, raw, and candid way. We all have different love stories – with friends, family, partners, and even ourselves. Tonight will allow us the space to rewrite our stories so we can gracefully move towards a present that’s filled with the love we desire and are worthy of.
