Emo’ is short for ‘Emotional’
The New Moon in Cancer

This New Moon in Cancer is particularly ‘emo’. You may be thinking that that doesn’t sound like much of a revelation, considering it’s the Moon and Cancer, with the Moon representing our feelings and emotions, in its home sign of goo-ey and soft centred, Cancer. But wait, there’s more. This New Moon- the Sun and Moon conjunct, is also conjunct Mercury and Venus, with these 4 planets forming a stellium in sensitive Cancer.
Mercury in Cancer could be said to have ‘water on the brain’, whereby feelings colour thoughts and may be in search of a good ‘sharing circle’ this New Moon. The idea of sharing one’s feelings also works well for Venus in Cancer, who, ‘wearing her heart on her sleeve’, is part of a deeply felt tryst with Mars (stationary direct) in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces. Together Venus, Mars and Chiron are forming a, ‘wound revealing/relationship healing’, Grand Trine in Water.
As well, this New Moon is operating as a super sensitive receiver (Moon), emitter (Sun) and tuner (Mercury) of cosmic frequencies, care of the trine to Neptune in its own sign of ‘other-worldly’ Pisces. At this New Moon, our capacity to attune to the subtle spheres of Being and the Cosmos will be heightened and we may find ourselves in an altered state of body, mind, identity and world.
Note well, it’s not just the subtleties of existence that this New Moon is intuiting; it’s also the complexities, depths and hidden agendas, care of the Pluto opposition to the New Moon. And with Pluto sextiling Neptune, the myriad streams and subtle currents of heightened feeling, intuition and psychic sensitivity will be blended with the deep, dark and unconscious waters of the Underworld.
Pluto, modern day ruler of Scorpio and at this New Moon, the traditional ruler Mars is in Scorpio, both representing our unconscious emotional patterning, especially that which is repressed, denied and disavowed and the shadow lands where the un-known, un-owned, un-lived and un-loved aspects of us reside. With this we can expect some disturbing psychic material to come to the surface or show up in our relationships or the collective, so that it can be transformed and released.
Power planet Pluto in oppressive and tyrannical Capricorn colours this New Moon black, giving it a feel that is heavy, emotionally intense and generally, ‘emo’. (For a lot more detail on what kind of emotional ‘dramas’ might get dreamed up at this New Moon and how to navigate them, I encourage you to watch my video presentation on the ‘New Moon in Cancer’.)
Interestingly, Pluto opposite the New Moon is forming a grand planetary pattern, called a ‘Mystical Rectangle’ with the Moon’s Nodes. This feels to me like ‘The Dark Night of the World Soul’, which is hardly surprising after the chaos, strife and madness of the Mutable Cross. Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, we have crossed a threshold that feels very much like a loss, death, ending or severance, making this New Moon a time of collective grieving. Yet I’m feeling positive about this. Why?
Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, is really a representative of a much more primal, archaic, feminine Goddess, known as, ‘The Goddess of Fate’ or the Greek ‘Fates’ or Morai. Another way to describe her is as, ‘The Goddess Necessity’. What this means is that it is absolutely necessary that we meet the grief of our world in chaos and on the brink of collapse and in doing so, not just encounter the depths of our own despair but feel into the suffering and darkness of the collective. But don’t get stuck there, keep moving, for this is a journey; a sacred mystical rite of the feminine into stillness and darkness. This is the way for the soul to enter into the mysterious realm of the original Mother Goddess. In this place we can no longer hold onto suffering and our hearts break open, letting go of pain and by some miracle of grace, somewhere in the void, we receive her gifts of forgiveness, empathy, compassion and unconditional love, not just for ourselves but to carry into the world.
This Mystical Rectangle signifies a calling to go beyond grief and despair, to
the source of unlimited and unconditional love within.
At this New Moon, pray, don’t be afraid of the primordial mother’s call,
for we are doomed without her.
As always I encourage you to take the time to create a sacred space to observe this New Moon. And consecrate that space to the ancient mother goddess. Call on her now to be with you and help you heal. As well, I highly recommend that you work with the intention of ‘emotional release’ and make use of the water element for flushing, cleansing and detoxing, on every level imaginable. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself having a good old cry or a number of them as the heart let’s go of stress. As mentioned above, this New Moon and for the weeks ahead is a good time to work on healing the emotional component of your inner conflicts and outer relationships.
And just so you know, with Mars in Scorpio picking up the pace over July we can expect to slowly but surely heal and with each passing week in July, we can expect to feel more and more energised and enjoy a growing sense of momentum towards our aspirations. Then by early August we should be feeling quite ‘zesty’. So for now, make use of these here emotional times and the outpouring of heart and art that comes with being ‘emo’.
