Cancer New Moon

The Moon is the most sensitive area in our chart, and women, especially, are affected by this area of their chart where the Moon is located as they become emotionally mature. The Moon is the driving stick of your spirituality, how sensitive you are psychic, and your intuitive capacity governed by this area of your chart. The 4th house is the natural placement of the moon, where everyone is more psychically tuned to matters related to this house. Things to consider when looking at your Moon and 4th house placement:

  • How was your early childhood? Did you feel safe and secure?

  • What were the childhood influences at home environment like?

Cancers can be emotionally sensitive and express or repress their emotions; Cancers are typically very nurturing and protective of others. They can also be overly protective of their home family, enabling their loved ones and behaviors that might be perceived as destructive, which can become an issue for cancer natives. Cancers are not very direct and honest and prefer a non-confrontational way of expressing themselves; they have difficulty expressing more sensitive matters that can provoke a negative response from others.

This will depend on their childhood upbringing and conditioning and maturity with expressing emotions and whether they can deal directly with their own and other people's emotions. This is why codependence can often become an issue for those with strong cancer or 4th house influence in their charts. Cancers can be devoted to their family and home and have a very strong, sensitive, and perceptive manner when relating to their loved ones. A wounded Cancer can become super emotional when triggered, and they tend to take everything personally and be vengeful to those who have injured them.

Qualities Positive & Negative

The Moon being in cancer suggests you need an emotional embrace in the world while protecting your feelings from insensitive responses to your emotional output. The characteristics of the moon and cancer are associated with nurturing and being cared for at an emotional level; because of this, you can't be comfortable with your emotions and any facet of life that is governed by or associated with emotional involvement. The function symbolized by the moon is our opportunities for emotional involvement, caring, being nurtured, or protecting yourself or others. The moon is a cardinal water sign that gives active water in nature, perfectly in your rule the mood. The stress inherent in this placement is through an overemphasis on the function symbolized by the moon, which is being overly emotional, overly sensitive, or overly attached to your family.


Warm and caring, emotionally giving and sensitive, your feelings are open to the feelings of others, in touch with your yin but emotionally needy, especially to give, overly sensitive and emotionally vulnerable, smothering, unbalanced with too much yin.

Habits and behaviors

Cancer moons are comfortable and safe environments, domestic, nurturing, processes emotionally, conventional, intuitive, but can be moody, paranoid and unfamiliar settings, shy, Klotsche/grabby, touchy, defensive, acting out of conditioning.

Family/ mother

Cancer moons are close-knit with family values, strong influence from the mother, family life seen as a nurturing and informative experience but too much attachment to family, still tied to mother's apron strings, overbearing/overprotective as parent, clannish.


There can be a strong sense of rootedness and heritage, emotionally sentimental towards the past, values, response to community/family, a love of tradition, open list to psychic energy, achievement to the collective consciousness but trapped in the past, unable to think for oneself, susceptible to a cult or other negative collective influence.


The Moon in Cancer on the transcendental level symbolizes a state in which you are open to the world as one family but in harmony with a universal mother. You are fully intuitive, aware of your feelings, and have removed all traces of external conditioning that influence your behavior and attitude. You will be letting go of your ego and realize that, at the root, we are all one, but you must also let go of your fears that you need to protect your vulnerabilities. Once you become free, your freedom manifests in your capacity to emotionally give and receive without hindrance.

Take A Look At Your Chart

The New Moon in Cancer will affect you personally, and everyone has the influence of the Cancer Moon in one or more areas of their chart. Some ideas of what to look for:

  • The Moon is sensitive, feminine, reflective, psychic, and the ruler of cancer. The 4th house is Cancers natural, and all home, family, and early childhood issues are highlighted now.

  • It is a good time to check what planets are in your 4th house? Are they easy-flowing or hard aspects to this house from one or more personal planets? The easy aspects offer support and protection for you now, but the harsh aspects will present challenges.

  • What house is your natal Moon located in your astrology chart? Are they harmonious aspects to personal planets? If so, you will feel more supported now, but you may want to lean into the energy symbolized by these harmonious aspects to your Moon for support. If the aspects are stressful, note the challenges that give you growth opportunities. But remember that the Cancer Moon tends to take things personally, and it's best to concentrate and reflect upon what is happening rather than react.

  • Venus and Chiron are about to station retrograde, and both celestial bodies have been slowing down for the past week to 10 days. It will be another week or two until Aquarius Full Moon, and you may experience a tremendous purging of emotions. You may be very sensitive and need support from friends, family, or even a professional counselor. If your spirits are depressed, you will be advised to get a spiritual counselor or support, which is a good time to cleanse your internal house of suppressed emotions. Taking sea salt and aromatherapy baths can be great for processing and expelling negative repressed emotions, fears, and worries.

  • Though the Moon moves through each sign and house quickly, it can leave a lasting impact on your psyche, but your emotions will be transient. Let your emotions settle before taking any action.

Deeper Insights

Venus, the planet of human love and pleasure, rules Taurus.

All things related to the wisdom of the earth are up for renewal, and Uranus will be stationed in Taurus till 2026, which will bring about the changes needed for the new evolutionary cycle, and we are mid-way through the cycle. Much can transpire as the spring tide forces peak for resealing and regeneration. This focus will be on Taurus and second house matters; your second house is being re-energized. This house relates to security, personal finances/ net worth, material possessions, creature comforts, and life pleasures. Safety and security depend on stability, which is not easy to satisfy now; accept change because it’s a part of life. Finding self-respect ensures you do not seek security and stability in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, you can find peace and tranquility in the outside world.

This might be a good time to get some camping gear and hiking equipment and make it a point to spend more time in nature. Uranus transiting through Taurus means that traditional material comforts and pleasures will undergo major changes. The ego mind's battles are fiercest and fought over changes related to one’s material circumstances.

Feeling vulnerable can be a significant issue as you experience volatility in security and stability. There are a lot of opportunities for growth and positive new beginnings.
