The Cancer new moon marks a time of new beginnings for home and family. Early childhood issues can be put to rest as you embark on a new path that can lead to fulfillment of dreams you may have felt unlikely to come to pass.
Two celestial forces contribute to this being an especially auspicious new beginning as the Cancer new moon connects in positive alignment with both Neptune (the planet of dreams) and the Dog Star, a first degree magnitude star and the brightest star in the heavens. It’s time to wish upon a star for matters near and dear to your heart.
