July 8th features a New Moon in Cancer, and Saturn turning direct in Scorpio. New beginnings will be supported by Saturn's forward motion, which can signal an end to delays, or the confirmation of certain responsibilities. Whether you need to let something go, or recommit yourself to a goal, this will enable whatever the New Moon activates in the areas of family, nurturing or core needs. Once Mars enters Cancer on July 13th (to August 27th) the potential of the New Moon will be ignited, and will surge forward. Mars in Cancer is an emotional initiator, so the energy will be moody, passionate and aggressive. With so much instinctive feeling on the boil, it will be important to direct it in healthy ways.
Saturn turns direct in your sector of shared resources, while the New Moon lights up your domestic sector. A move, home purchase, new business launch or new development with family will be connected to forward momentum around loans, debts, taxes or your partner's finances. Financial delays could be lifted, or an investment could be confirmed. Alternatively, a block involving physical or emotional intimacy could be overcome. When Mars (your ruler) enters your domestic sector, watch for an increase in emotional reactions, disagreements, home repairs or accidents. Mars triggers action and energy, which can come in handy for home projects, but can be disruptive for domestic harmony. Arguments (and even some accidents) will be rooted in resentments that are based in the past. On the plus side, this can be a time when simmering emotional issues are aired out, and real progress is made.
Saturn moves forward in your partnership sector, while the New Moon hits your sector of communication. Relationship delays/limits can be removed, or a final decision can be made. A commitment may be finalized, or it may become apparent that this commitment is not meant to happen. Watch for pivotal discussions, messages or announcements. Whatever has been blocked, shut down or restricted in your love life should now become more open; progress will be slow but steady. Once Mars activates your communication sector, you could feel compelled to say exactly what's on your mind. Communication (given and received) will be impulsive, instinctive and courageous; don't be surprised if you (or someone else) blurts out what needs to be said. There is also an increased risk for arguments, so take a couple of breaths before you react.
Saturn goes direct in your sector of routine, while the New Moon activates your security sector. A raise, opportunity for additional income, or new awareness of your bottom-line, essential needs will be connected to an improvement in a health situation or a breakthrough involving work/obligations. A health issue that's been dragging you down can now see progress, you may gain control of a frustrating work situation. Also, you may finally accept/move forward with a responsibility. All progress will involve your renewed commitment to doing what needs to be done. You'll see the dividends manifest as increased security (emotional or financial). As Mars enters your security sector, money can increase quickly, but so can expenditures (especially emotional ones). You may also find yourself pushing for more satisfaction/attention/nurturing from loved ones. Whatever you need more of, consider how you can meet those needs yourself. The more self-sufficient you are under this influence, the easier it will be to handle.
The New Moon in your sign and Saturn direct in your sector of creativity/romance promises an invigorating new chapter for you. New beginnings (in a relationship, job or lifestyle) will be connected to the removal of delays/hesitation around a personal, desired goal. A new romance could become more defined, a creative project could receive your renewed focus, or a conception/birth could put you on a whole new path. The theme is manifestation of something deeply personal to you. Once Mars enters your sign, you'll feel more energized, aggressive and confident. You've already got Jupiter in your sign, pumping up your optimism. The addition of Mars' raw, impulsive energy can push you in directions you would have never gone a few weeks ago. Is there something you want (happiness, recognition, freedom, love)? This is your chance to go out and pursue it. Mars and Jupiter give you an above average chance of getting (at least some of) what you crave. This is not the time to sit back and wait for things to come to you.
The New Moon hits your sector of secrets, while Saturn goes direct in your domestic sector. A breakthrough involving family patterns/addictions, or forward movement with a relocation/rental/home purchase can feel satisfying, while opening the door to hidden/forgotten potentials. Something that's been overlooked will now start to bubble to the surface. This is all good, because it's connected to your gradual establishment of new roots/domestic structure. You need what's not obvious to help you move forward. Mars into your sector of secrets can push the hidden/secret potentials forward (you make you want to reveal all). If possible, hold back on a full reveal/emotional commitment - everything you need to see is not completely clear yet, and your actions may be misguided.
The New Moon hi-lights your social sector, while Saturn direct happens in your communication sector. As messages, ideas and conversations become clearer/easier, a key, group event or friendship could manifest. Your relationship to the public (whether you're promoting yourself or trying to broaden your social circle) will be connected to a formal decision, announcement or commitment to a more focused way of manifesting your intentions. Once Mars enters your social sector, your public life should become even more active; expect rapid comings and goings (of friends/acquaintances) and high-energy social interactions. Disagreements with friends are a possibility, but so is your increased passion to crusade for a cause, or get things done for others.
The New Moon in your career sector is supported by Saturn direct in your security sector. A solution to financial difficulties, or a renewed commitment to budgeting/self-sufficiency will coincide nicely with a new career development. Money will still be tight, but limits rooted in the past, or the intensification of certain restrictions, should be lifted. There may be a job offer on the table (or a new job may begin). Alternatively, you may become inspired with a whole new career path. The more you focus on working with what you have (rather than wishing for what you don't have) the further ahead you'll get. Once Mars enters your career sector, things should take off. Expect increased ambition and initiative to power you towards your future goals. As well, your reputation and big picture responsibilities could demand more attention.
The New Moon in your opportunities sector coincides with Saturn direct in your sign. As you finally put a plan into motion, or overcome a fear/trust issue, you'll discover something new and exciting on the horizon. Long distance travel/relationships, education, legal matters or publishing can be the areas where a new chapter begins. Saturn direct in your sign can be mobilizing, or it can renew your commitment to a significant relationship or goal. As Mars enters your opportunities sector, your reach will extend; you'll be able to move faster/further and impact a wider audience. This is an excellent influence to explore the unknown. Travel may increase (by choice or circumstance) but take extra precautions; Mars can be accident prone. As you explore, have a backup plan handy.
The New Moon activates your sector of shared resources while Saturn goes direct in your hidden sector. The release of hidden obstacles could signal a final goodbye (that's been part of your larger movement away from the past) or flip an internal switch. As you feel more secure about moving forward again, watch for new developments involving loans, debts, taxes or your partner's finances. You could take on an added, joint expense or decide that it's time to invest yourself more fully (financially or emotionally). Once Mars enters your sector of shared resources, joint finances could demand more attention (watch for sudden expenses). Intimacy could heat up as well, as you (or your partner) demand more depth or emotion. Mars is urging you to be bold (and honest) in all intimacy matters.
The New Moon in your partnership sector coincides with Saturn direct in your social sector. As delays/doubts with friends or groups are lifted, watch for a new chapter to unfold in your love life. An existing relationship could enter a new phase, or a new relationship could appear. Saturn in your social sector will still narrow your options, but its move forward will empower you in a specific direction. There may be a goodbye (to a friend or associate), as you decide that a certain person no longer has a place in your life. Pruning away the excess in your public life will bring new growth to your private/love life, allowing you to focus your energy where it matters most. Once Mars enters your partnership sector, your love life should heat up, as a new or existing relationship progresses rapidly. Note that Mars can also bring tempers to a boil, so watch for brief but emotional arguments.
The New Moon lights up your sector of work and health, while Saturn moves forward in your career sector. A fresh approach to health/diet/exercise, a diagnosis, or a new work routine will coincide with your increased push at work, or towards a future goal. Delays on the job will be lifted, and you'll be encouraged to dig in and focus. The New Moon will trigger yet another reason to fulfill certain obligations, and while this may all feel like endless work, these are issues that cannot be ignored. Once Mars enters your sector of routine, expect even more on your plate. Slacking off is not an option, but you'll have plenty of energy to fuel you. Mars in this sector can give you excess energy, so ramp up your exercise routine to burn some of it off, while releasing stress and irritability.
The New Moon shines in your sector of creativity and celebrations, while Saturn direct moves things along in your sector of opportunities. The end of a delay/limit involving long-distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing will blend nicely with a new, personal goal. Saturn in your opportunities sector is still restricting certain areas, but now you should see one, particular goal become reachable. Alternatively, you may find that you've been reaching too far, and you're better off sticking close to home. Either way, pay attention to what's brewing in the areas of creativity, new romance or pregnancy. Something is ripening, and as Mars enters your creativity sector, it will accelerate rapidly. Whether you're moving ahead with a new baby, a new way to express your personal desires, or you simply feel like getting out and enjoying yourself, this energy can bring you what you desire.
