Cancer New Moon

Updated: Jul 13, 2022

This cancer new moon greats us to nourish ourselves in the most carrying way and brings a cosmic bliss.

the meaning of the cancer new moon in June

I am coming home, coming home, tell the world that I’m coming home...if there was one sign that belongs to this song, it would be the crab. That doesn’t need to be literally to a home but more of the foundation within and around you that you call or define as home. On June 29, 2022 at 04:52 the new moon will take place in Cancer, the sign of the crab, at 7°22' degrees. Cancer energy embodies the caring, nurturing and feminine principle in the zodiac. It is characterized by an extremely strong connection to the emotional world and intuition. With the Cancer energy we are able to dive deep within ourselves and get in close contact with our emotions. With the new moon in Cancer, we also have the opportunity to perceive subtle messages that our environment sends out completely non-verbally, to reconcile ourselves with our inner children and to initiate a lot of healing in unconscious family dynamics. Because the sign Cancer is closely connected to our homeland, our home and our ancestors.

trust your instincts and trust the Universe. That’s our mantra for this New Moon

Within the framework of the Cancer new moon, we can set specific intentions that have to do with our own roots. We can devote ourselves to the question of what feelings arise in us when we imagine arriving and truly getting involved.

As a celestial body, the Moon symbolizes the internal realm of emotions, particularly what makes us feel safe, protected, and nurtured. When the Moon is in Water sign Cancer, the sign that the Moon rules, these topics become magnified, as we may seek to retreat into our proverbial crab shells for a moment, defaulting to our comfort zone and what feels familiar.

We won’t find ourselves huddled up at home during this lunation however, as the push from the Universe during this pivotal New Moon comes from bountiful Jupiter in the trailblazing sign of Aries. As the New Moon meets Jupiter in an action-provoking square, think of it as the cosmic encouragement we need to move forward on our dreams. And there is no more perfect time to set these bold and soul-aligned intentions than during a New Moon.

The key to this New Moon is reframing the phrase comfort zone. You know what you’re good at. You know what you enjoy doing—and what you don’t. You also know that incomparable feeling of hitting your stride—personally, romantically, professionally, financially—plant more seeds in areas where you feel comfortable and like you belong.

Like a crab carrying its shell on its back as its walks, the feeling of home can always be with you if you feel at home with yourself.

Does this awaken a longing in us or is it more of an escape mechanism? In addition, with the upcoming new moon, we can mentally travel into our past and heal events from our childhood.


As always every new or full moon yes even every day gets shaped by the aspects the different planets and celestial bodies make to each other. Sometimes we have more challenging days due to harder aspects that play out and other days seem to be more flowing and enjoyable because of smoother and nicer aspects. This Cancer new moon definitely has sone of the last ones available for us.

Moon and Sun

Every New moon the moon and the sun are in the same sign in the same degree performing the event. They both reflecting one energy of one sign at this time, the one of cancer. The moon is actually the ruling „planet“ of cancer and therefore the moon is literally HOME. Exactly what cancer energy represents. We are gifted to work more on our shadow and darker sides around a new moon - think of the rumination just being switch off compared to when there is a full moon. That doesn’t mean that the moon is gone - totally the opposite- its just renewing for something big and its even stronger here cause we all know how much power lies in birthing something new and that’s the power of this cancer new moon as well. Representing our most feline essence and allowing us to step more into our mature self -mothering ourself, our projects, material things, our ideas, visions, environments and others.

Moon/Sun scquaring Jupiter

oh lucky you.

This aspects makes the emotional cancer new moon even more emotional, because we have Jupiter involved, the one who expands everything ;-) So be prepared to feel even more, cry even more and let your emotion run through to learn from them and let them be an inspiration for your growth and expansion.

Venus in sextile to Jupiter:

Thats why we won’t be so alone on this new moon because the aspect between Venus- the planet of love, relation, beauty and comfort is also touched by Jupiter. This creates a big emphasis for each other and we can show up in our most friendly way - which we should always, but is not always possible tho.

Moon conjunct black moon Lilith

Lilith is not a planet but a sensitive point. To be precise, the furthest point of the moon in its orbit around the earth. Lilith is therefore inextricably linked to the moon. It is therefore not surprising that it is called the black moon. We now note that Lilith is closely intertwined with the moon and the moon in turn is the ruling planet of Cancer. You see there is this double moon vibe and with this we are being confronted with our most feminine essence and how we can embody this in our most authentic, vulnerable and honest way.
