Frantisek Kupka, The Beginning of Life, 1900

July 20, 2020 — The New Moon arrives on July 20, at 10:32am Pacific Time, in the sign of watery, emotional Cancer. Symbolized by the Crab, Cancer is one of the most sensitive signs, always working to feel secure, protected, and cared for. Falling opposite to stern Saturn, this Moon is testing us—making sure that we have solid footing as we establish fresh starts for the longterm future. We can apply Saturn’s thoroughness and integrity to make sure we are seeing ourselves honestly, owning our mistakes, and becoming clearer on what we want to build into the future.

Luckily, this New Moon is forming a harmonious angle to Neptune, helping us tap into our intuition, forgive ourselves and others, and find our flow. This is possible once we set healthy boundaries, making sure that we feel safe enough to open our hearts, in our relationships and the world. Acknowledgement and rectification are essential—which are Saturn’s key lessons. Working with the watery Moon, the stern teacher is helping us strike a balance between gentleness and discipline, accountability and forgiveness.

Falling in nostalgic Cancer, this New Moon is also offering us the chance to integrate difficult memories and traumas. From this place of personal healing, we can work together to create a better future—one that is more compassionate, nurturing, and oriented toward human connection.

Enlightened society is possible—one where we prioritize family, mutual care, and nurturing over empty achievement, where we sit on solid foundations of healing and emotional awareness. The Crab is leading us into kinder waters where eventually, more of us can feel safe enough to emerge from our shells and reveal our deep magic and tender hearts.
