New Moon in Cancer on 7 August 2021

The moon is at home in its own sign of sidereal Cancer during the new lunar cycle, 7 August through 5 September 2021. Feelings of wanting comfort — like in the one’s own home — will be dominant. If balanced, the collective may be deeply intuitive, protective, and observant. 

At this time, Cancer can show up as over-sensitive, anti-social, or resorting to underhanded behavior to achieve what it wants. Capricorn is opposite on the axis, sticking to a routine and being patient can strengthen the relationship with the moon.

Retrograde Energy
The outer planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are guiding the collective to reflect on the deeper aspects of life. Much of this is at the subconscious level of the collective, but may show up as feelings towards the government.

Ketu/ south node in Scorpio aspects Cancer guiding the collective to put more effort into helping people different from themselves, especially senior citizens. This will be different on the individual level based on the sidereal natal chart.
