New Moon in Cancer today on 4th July, 2016 is an intense, emotional, romantic, empathic, sensitive, intuitive New Moon. Cancer links to the 4th house in astrology which is all about one's private, sacred space, the home, family and food. So the next few weeks could be a positive time to try that new recipe you've been meaning to or to do new things in the home, even small things could be good, like buying new furnishings for the home. Another aspect could be attending to family matters with fresh intentions of change. With a stellium of planets (the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus) all in Cancer, this watery cluster in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn also gives this influence a Scorpionic flavour. Venus in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn could bring about feelings of jealousy, possessiveness, unrequited love, obsessional feelings and insecurities. Venus opposition Mercury could bring about heightened sensitivity to people's thoughts or comments. Moon opposition Pluto can be quite steamy and smouldering, so you could feel or notice in others intense emotions bubbling under the surface while words and thoughts may be kept to oneself. It is quite a secretive aspect, people may feel like going into their shell, but don't worry with these possible influences intuition could be brilliantly heightened. So a good time to sense what the house or a family member could benefit from. Being moved by sentimentality, nostalgia or music is very Cancerian. As Cancer is a notoriously moody, changeable sign in opposition to Pluto, for some people it may simply mean a strong urge to be at home, in their family surroundings or safe haven, feeling protected and cozy.
