  • Cooking may be fun to do now,  so go ahead and try out that new recipe
  • The more emotionally sensitive of us, may take offense or feel slighted or more vulnerable during the Cancer moon… Caution is advised though, check your facts before you “accuse”. 
  • Some of us may feel needy, while others of us are happy to be the needed, helping our loved ones feel secure. Caution is advised that some of us can go over board on the needy thing during this moon period, so be careful if you don’t want to “scare” someone off… 
  • It’s a time for cuddles, caring, good food and just plain old lovings… 🙂 Enjoy..
  • This may also be a good time to do some tidy up and mini reno’s on the house.

  • Sun in Cancer:
  • Moon in the 4th house:

The Moon and Astrology


In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon:

These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as Opportunity Periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods. thanks to Paula Belluomini astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods and dates.

New Moon July 8 2013

Our lady begins her renewal process on

July 8 2013 at 3:14 am.

July 8 2013 New Moon in Cancer in the 4th quarter.

She will be void off course from 7:44 pm July 8 2013 until 6:48 am July 9; where she will visit with the sign Leo in the 1st quarter.

The New Moon is about beginnings and starts … it’s the time to look forward and put new ideas and projects into motion. 

New moon in Cancer: Time to tend to the domestic front. The moon rules the sign of Cancer and she is all about home and hearth here. A time to nurture and take care of our loved ones, cook and bbq and tidy the home front…

But be aware of becoming too emotional or of making mountains out of mole hills. Those who are the more sensitive of the zodiac, like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces might get their feelings hurt if they allow emotions free run.

And those of the Zodiac who are less in tune with the emotions of themselves or others,  may need to watch their p’s and q’s for at least one day… 🙂 

Cancer is Ruled by the Moon making the connection strong and will influence all water signs… Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio.

Those who have their Sun, Moon or Ascendant signs in Cancer or any of the water signs will be the most effected by this new moon…. 

New moon in the 4th quarter. A good time to “draw back” to reflect on past events and what has been (or has not been) accomplished. Time to clear the slate and plan for the New Moon stage. 

New Moon in the 1st quarter: Our lady becomes visible 5.5 to 12 hours after ‘her birth” she is delicate but strong, eager to start anew almost with the innocence of a babe she wants to begin again and explore all that she can. This is the absolute best time to begin your new projects, especially any projects or ideas that relate to the home and family. Family is anyone you wish to include which for some may be college’s friends, neighbours and co-workers. 

When the moon is void off course we can be unsure as to how we are really feeling about something or someone, it’s therefore advisable to stick to routine tasks at this time. If any legal documents or long-term commitments are in the picture take care to make sure you understand everything that is involved before signing… Delaying important decisions and commitments is highly recommended when the moon is void off course… 

A solar eclipse can have an influence on us making things, plans, issues and or situations that happen during an eclipse last longer than usual. Sometime’s it’s unavoidable and plans have to be made, ideas need to be put into motion and there are some people we just can’t get away from or do without…. In these cases patience is strongly advised. Our last Solar Eclipse was on May 9 2013. 

For those who have oppositions or square aspects to the moon, these may prove to be challenging times, if this is the case you are advised not to force issues at this time.  For those who have trines or sextiles, these may prove to be opportune times.
