Super New Moon in Cancer June 23-24, 2017 ~ Amazing Change, Transformation and New Beginnings


By astrologyking

The New Moon on Friday June 23, 2017 is at 2° Cancer. The main astrological influence on New Moon June 2017 comes from a close alignment to Mercury, the planet of ideas, communication and transport.

The June 2017 New Moon is fortunately located in Gemini Constellation which is the home of Mercury. This is definitely a new moon for sharing bright ideas and making plans. It is a sociable moon phase ideal for making partnerships and for starting new business ventures.

New Moon Meaning

A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. This is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf or starting any new project.

All possibilities are on the table as you put yourself at the center of plans for your future. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

The influence of the June 23 new moon lasts for four weeks up to the July 23 new moon. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from June 23 to the July 9 full moon.

New Moon June 2017 Astrology

The June 23 new moon at 2°47′ Cancer is easy to decipher compared to recent moon phases. There is only one major aspect to new moon June 2017 and some input from fixed stars. While the new moon is in the first decan of the Cancer Sign, it is actually located in Gemini Constellation.

Like ancient astrologers I use fixed stars and constellations for astrological interpretation, not Sun Signs. For information about this discrepancy between Sun Signs and Constellations see Precession of the Equinoxes.

New moon June 2017 is only three degrees from Mercury. In this three degrees are two stars in the northern Gemini Twin. Tejat Prior and Tejat Posterior are located in the back and front of Castor’s left foot.

Gemini Constellation gives intense devotion, genius, largeness of mind, goodness, and liberality. It is the House of Mercury and a fortunate sign. [1] The conjunction of Sun, Moon and Mercury in this Mercury ruled region of the sky makes this a new moon of ideas, communication, transport and trade.

2°47′ Cancer – New Moon
3°40′ Cancer – Tejat Prior
5°32′ Cancer – Tejat Posterior
5°52′ Cancer – Mercury

Both fixed stars are like Mercury and Venus. Morse says they give the ability to express ideas in reasonable and acceptable ways which win because of their manifest intelligence. [2] Robson says that Tejat Prior gives strength, eminence and success, while Tejat Posterior gives force, energy, power and protection. [3]

New Moon June 2017 Conjunct Mercury

Sun conjunct Mercury puts the focus on your thinking and communications, making this a very busy time mentally. Your mind is on the ball which favors lots of interactions, clearing paperwork and bills, receiving and sending letters and emails, and short trips around town.

You will be wanting to chat and start conversations on topics that interest you. Also, you will be thinking and expressing yourself clearly. This is an ideal time to make plans and start business deals, bargain, and buy and sell.

Moon conjunct Mercury creates a great deal of emotional sensitivity and changeable moods. You can more easily make close emotional attachments to other people, or enjoy reminiscing about the past with family members. Conversation with women and family members in particular will be emotionally nourishing.

Your emotionally sensitivity can lead to a strong intuition and even psychic abilities. Socializing should be rewarding because your openness and understanding will promote genuine friendship.

New moon June 2017 conjunct Mercury signals the perfect time to make new partnerships of all kinds, personal and professional. The fortunate and protective nature of the fixed stars involved more than compensate for any relationship friction caused by the minor aspect or new moon semisquare Venus.

This is a great new moon for buying and selling anything associated with communication and transport. You could bargain down the price of expensive things like cars and bikes. Keep an eyes on sales if you need a new phone or printer.

The first two weeks of this new moon phase from June 23 to July 9 is a good time to share ideas and discuss plans for the future. Business deals are favored and it’s a good time for booking or starting journeys. You could take advantage of this fortunate moon phase by writing and sending off applications, scheduling important meetings, making a budget or organizing your paperwork.

The June Super New Moon falls on the 24th in the watery, intuitive and nurturing sign of Cancer.
The Moon feels at home in the sign of Cancer, which gives this Super New Moon a calming, restorative and peaceful effect, however there are other energies playing beneath the surface as well.

This Super New Moon is closely linked to the May 25th Super New Moon. Although June’s Super New Moon is not as strong, these two lunar cycles are working as part of a team.

Having two Super New Moon’s back to back indicates amazing change, transformation and new beginnings.
It is likely between May and June that your life may have taken on a different feel or tone energetically. Perhaps you are even feeling inspired to start something new or begin a new chapter of your life.

This Cancerian Super New Moon will also be stirring emotions that occurred back in May and may even bring more clarity. Any unfinished business may also be resolved, or you may just be feeling a lot clearer on your path ahead.
June’s Super New Moon will feel a lot softer than May’s and will have a calming and nourishing effect. In fact, spending time with family, relaxing and taking things slow is definitely going to feel easy under this lunar influence.

The one thing to be mindful of under June’s New Moon, is getting too caught up in overthinking or over analyzing things. When we get caught up in the thoughts of our mind it can easily lead to feelings of stress and anxiety.

Super New Moon in Cancer 24 June 2017If you find this happening, try to quiet your mind and focus on following your heart instead. This will not only help to reduce any feelings of anxiousness but it will also align you with your highest self.

June’s Super New Moon is also going to be encouraging you to express any deeper, hidden emotions and to speak up if you have something to share.

In fact, if you have been suppressing thoughts and feelings about someone or something, this New Moon may just give you the courage to finally take action.

Emotions may also run high around the time of the Super New Moon and your energy levels may feel all over the place. If this occurs, try to focus on finding your stillness and being gentle with yourself.

Kindness is always a good remedy too, so practice being kind to others and kind to yourself. Give yourself permission to take some time out and to recharge your batteries if you need to.

Listen and trust in the wisdom of your heart on this Super New Moon, as it will surely be guiding you in the right direction.

New Moon in Cancer 24 June 2017The June Solstice also falls just days before the Super New Moon. This combination of Solar and Lunar energy is going to amplify the feeling of new beginnings and will be encouraging us to tackle life a little differently.

It is time to make some changes and it is time to go after your highest dreams and wishes. It is time to take a leap of faith and trust in the calling of your heart.

The potent combination of the Solstice and the Super New Moon will be guiding us all to much higher places and also preparing us for the final eclipse cycle of 2017.

The year is halfway done so if you are not where you want to be, now is the time to move gently, swiftly and with courage. Keep following your heart and you will always be moving in the right direction.
