The moon represents the most sensitive area in your natal chart. Women, especially as they mature emotionally, are more effected by this area of their chart.
Your moon is your spiritual divining rod. How psychically sensitive you are and your intuitive capacity is governed by this area of your chart.
As the moon’s natural placement in the zodiac is the 4th house everyone is more psychically attuned to matters related to this house.
How was your early childhood? Did you feel safe and secure? What was the childhood influence, environment like?
The U.S. was born under a Cancer Sun (Protector of the Homeland). The U.S. also has its Mercury (communicator, connector, networker) and Venus (love, pleasure principle) and Jupiter (optimism, leadership, expansion).
See the U.S. Astrology Chart.
As the U.S. natal Pluto is being triggered by a conjunction from transiting Pluto this year, the U.S. is set for a review and re-boot of its original intent as a revolutionary leader in the world. Either this re-boot will occur at a whole new level of enterprise, or the U.S. as a revolutionary world leadership will slowly deteriorate. Other nations have gone through this Pluto return. Some were able to cope with the regeneration and renewal (England and the U.K. as an example) and others not (Rome).
Cancer Personality Traits
Cancers are emotionally very sensitive. Whether expressed, or repressed, the emotions are sensitive and fine tuned. Cancers are typically very nurturing and protective of their loved ones. They can be overly protective of home and family. Co-dependence and enabling their loved ones in behavior that might be viewed as destructive can become an issue for Cancer natives.
Like the crab which is their zodiac symbol, Cancers are security seeking and can side step matters and prefer a non confrontational stance over being direct and honest. They can have difficulty dealing with expressing more sensitive matters that can elicit a negative response from others.
Much depends upon their early childhood conditioning, emotional maturity with expressing emotions, whether they can deal directly with their own and other people’s emotions. This is why co-dependence can often become an issue for those with strong cancer (4th house) influence in their chart.
Cancer natives are devoted to their family and home. They can have a very loving, sensitive and perceptive manner when relating with their loved ones.
However, a cancer with a wounded ego can become super emotional when triggered. They can tend to take everything personally and be vengeful to those who have injured them.
Best gemstones and crystals for Cancer are

- Rose Quartz - calming, cooling, spiritual attunement to love
- Ruby - nobility, light in the darkness
Tips for How the Cancer New Moon Can Affect You Personally
Everyone has the Cancer New Moon influence in one, or more areas of their chart.
Here are a few areas of your chart where you can experience the Cancer Moon influence:
- The sensitive, feminine, reflective and psychic moon is the ruler of Cancer. Cancer is the natural ruler of the 4th house. All matters of home, family and early childhood issues are highlighted at this time.
- What personal planets are located in your 4th house? Do you have any easy flowing, or hard aspects to this house from one or more of your personal planets, or points? The easy flowing aspects offer support and protection to you at this time. While harsh aspects will augment the challenges presented at this time.
- What house is your natal moon located in your personal astrology chart? This is probably the greatest significator for how the Cancer moon will affect you. If you have harmonious contacts from personal planets you will feel more supported at this time. You may want to lean into the energy symbolized by these harmonious aspects to your moon for support. If there are stressful contacts to your natal moon you’ll want to take note of this. Challenging aspects give you an opportunity for growth. If you can, remember that with the Cancer moon we tend to take things very personally. It’s best to be contemplative at this time and reflect upon what is happening rather than be reactive to whatever surfaces.
- The moon moves quickly through each sign and house. Whatever happens, though it may leave a lasting impact upon your psyche, the emotions themselves will be transient. Best to let your emotions settle before taking action that may have long standing results. Keep your cool if possible. The biggest intensity is shortly before the moon is new. It is darkest before the moon is new and for a day, or two after.
Neptune is Stationary Retrograde today. It has been slowing down for the past week to ten days. During this time, and for another week to two weeks until the Capricorn Full Super Moon, you may experience a tremendous purging of emotions. It’s a very sensitive period of time. Get support from a friend, or family member if you need it, or even a professional counselor. Spiritual support is absolutely essential if you’re feeling low and depressed spirits. It’s a time when you can cleanse your internal house of suppressed emotions. Long baths with sea salt and aromatherapy can be life savers for processing and expelling negative repressed emotions, fears and worries.

Neptune Stationary Retrograde
Your feeling of safety is now very much related to your home, the family and related activities such as childcare, nourishment and nurturing of roots. You may be more prone to fluctuation of your emotional moods. Depression can result from thinking too much about things related to childhood issues, or self care matters. Your perceptions about the world are far more emotional and personal than usual. Now can be a time for some sort of new start in your home and family. Perhaps buy new furnishing, or welcome the arrival of a baby into your family. With Neptune Station Retrograde some dream, or longed for event may now get revived.
Essential Oil to Use: Rose Otto
Oils that nourish the emotions and support congenial relations in the home, family and with close loved ones.
Moon (Cancer) Square Jupiter (Aries)
Your emotions can run to the extreme. Watch for excess and over reach. Enthusiasm to pursue matters near and dear to your heart can be more top of mind than usual. Any seeming threat to your home, or family may appear larger than life. Nurture yourself and those you love. Watch for emotional overeating though. This is not a time to stuff your emotions.
Moon (Cancer) Conjunct Black Moon Lilith (Cancer)
Black moon Lilith deals with shadow tissue. Things that usually lay hidden about yourself, a loved one, or matters about your home can breakthrough to the surface with Black Moon Lilith's square to Jupiter in Aries. Much that has been disowned, or that you've not wanted to deal with can come to the surface for healing. This can initially be a time of confusion and inner conflict. You may be resistant to seeing a truth that has long been buried, but not forgotten, in the unconscious layers of your psyche. This is a good thing to air the shadow, so that healing may occur. New ventures can benefit from such a purge of dark emotions. Long cherished beliefs and notions can be questioned. You may feel frustrated with someone, or with life in general. Or, out of touch with yourself during these newfound realizations. Self care and nurturance will help you get through. This can be a tremendous time of healing deep, psychic wounds.
Sun (Cancer) Square Jupiter (Aries)
This aspect can make for a very dynamic and changing situation in your home and family life. There can be a need to watch for over excitement and enthusiasm. You may need to check your enthusiasm and reflect on what can realistically be accomplished now. An event can happen that completely changes your vision about society. This transit may bring about events that suddenly change your beliefs, or worldview.
Venus (Gemini) Sextile Jupiter (Aries)
Grand ideas about love both personal and social are supported. This looks like a love movement can get started that potentially can have a pervasive sweeping effect around the globe.
Moon (Cancer) Sextile Uranus (Taurus)
Opportunity for unparalleled excitement being unleashed globally. How will this energy get channeled? Does this kind of opportunity for sensitive awareness show up with earth changes like hurricanes, or floods. Or, will humanity express this energy through collective action and change? Or both?
Neptune Stationary Retrograde (Pisces)
Much sensitivity and awareness about things that usually lay hidden and in the shadows may surface now. Deep collective awareness and review is set for humanity as a whole. There’s a dynamic collective call for change in the human psyche.
