The June 23rd New Moon (2 degrees Cancer) conjoins Mercury (4 degrees). Thoughts are blended with feelings, and words will be highly emotional.
This new beginning suggests a conversation or realization that helps you make sense of a subjective issue. Home, family, childhood and primary needs will be involved. Family discussions are the first thing that come to mind, but this Moon can introduce any issue that involves empathetic communication/thoughts. All subjects will be tinted with sentimental or poignant colours. You need something, they need something, you remember how it used to be. And so on.
Due to Cancer's changeable energy (moods shift rapidly) the words that are featured may evolve rapidly. Especially with Mars in Cancer sitting nearby. At 12 degrees, Mars does not conjoin this Moon, but he will square Jupiter and trine Neptune on June 25th/26th, accelerating events. Jupiter will pump up Mars' energy, anger or passion, while Neptune will enable the unlimited flow of feeling. There may be tears and/or laughter. Catharsis.
What's introduced on the New Moon will quickly advance, propelled by instinctive responses. Mercury's logic may be swamped, so keep an eye on the facts. Then again, if you've been wanting to discuss/write about an issue that requires an emotional impact, this is your Moon. When Mercury in Cancer speaks, everyone feels like the message is meant just for them. There's a familiar quality to the words - an intensely personal vibe.
The Sun's Cancer ingress (I'll write a separate post on this) occurs in the early hours of June 21st (EDT) and it will conjoin Mercury a few hours later. So we can "extend" this New Moon, with the Summer Solstice as harbinger. June 21st to June 23rd can be viewed as a potent new beginning, and Mercury will be the messenger.
