At this New Moon in Cancer I am focusing on the 10 Archetypes.
I take my inspiration from Ashleigh Barty, Wimbledon Women’s Champion 2021. On her win she said “Dare to Dream it”.
The Moon -The Nurturer/The Mother
The New Moon is in the sign of Cancer, the place where the Moon is most at home. Cancer concerns are family, care, nurturing. It’s the sign of The Mother. Self-care is most important and even more so now as we embrace a new world once the restrictions of Covid have lifted. Cancerians need a Tribe, a Family that isn’t necessarily the birth family.
Cancer is the sign of memories, of the past, of childhood. Great writers often have the Mercury in Cancer. Keeping a journal or diary is perfect during the transit of Mercury in Cancer starting July 11th. Celebrities with Mercury in Cancer: George Bernard Shaw, Judy Garland, Che Guevara, Alexandre Dumas, Carl Jung.
- Positive Keywords for Cancer: Soulful, Intuitive, Emotional, Instinctive.
- Negative Keywords for Cancer: Timid, Impulsive, Oversensitive, Smothering.
Mercury’s alignment with Neptune at the Full Moon on July 24th heralds a focus on the dream world. Creating a Vision board would be ideal to do in the next month.
Mercury, the planet of communication has at last moved away from its retrograde in Gemini and its ‘shadow’. The Trickster has been playing havoc with the internet, scam text messages and being muddled with dates and appointments. It will enter the sign of Cancer on July 11th until July 28th when it enters Leo. The next few weeks will heighten feelings for all of us. Cancer is a sensitive sign so be extra patient with yourself and others.
We are moving into the month of Leo where the Sun is at home. Those of us with planets in Leo greet the annual arrival of the Sun on July 22nd, as a boost of vitality and leadership. Leo is a fire sign that looks up to the future. Its also the most playful sign. The Sun in our birth chart is where we find our purpose. Each day we get up and ‘do’ our Sun sign.
Venus- The Lover and Mars- The Warrior in Leo
This month we have a rare occurrence of Venus and Mars joining in Leo on July 12th-14th. Venus is the Goddess, Mars the Warrior. Together they are The Lovers. Focus on your inner masculine, your willpower allied with your feminine -The Queen Archetype of Venus in Leo. Take pride in your appearance, this is a time to shine.
Jupiter: The Explorer/Teacher
Jupiter takes approx. 12 years to travel through the 12 signs. Jupiter rules the Law and it concerned with Truth. Where Jupiter is placed in your chart is where you find your Faith. Jupiter is now retrograde and continues in its traditional home sign of Pisces. It returns into Aquarius- The sign of the humanitarian- on July 28th to give a final boost- the feel good factor- to all air signs-Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. It re-enters Pisces on December 29th. Water signs then benefit-Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces next year until May 10th. Then again October 29th until December 20th 2022.
Saturn: The Strategist/Authority
Saturn takes approx. 2 and a half years to go through a sign. It is now retrograde in Aquarius, a sign it co-rules with Uranus. The theme of the year is Saturn in a tense relationship (a square) with Uranus. This is the old versus the new. Rebellion and protest marches are seen in the news on a daily basis. Which side are you on? Do you obey the rules? Or do you revolt?
Neptune: The Dreamer/Visionary
It seems so strange to be in the world right now. We are all going through a collective rebirth. The New Moon has a benevolent relationship with Neptune in Pisces. Neptune is The Hanged Man in the tarot, the most spiritual card in the deck. Neptune is the place in our birth chart that connects us to our Vision, to the ideal. In Pisces that is the 8th chakra, God the Mother. The colour is magenta, and in Aura-Soma is known as ‘love in the little things’. As the Sun illuminates Neptune on 15th July become more aware of your dreams this month. Keep a dream journal!
Uranus- The Renegade/Awakener
Uranus takes approx 7 years to go through a sign and always brings change/revolution. It is the planet that rules inventions and genius. Its now in Taurus (May 2018-April 2026 approx.) and we are witnessing a change in climate change. Taurus is ruled by Venus, and as it’s an earth sign, we are now concerned with agriculture, our food chain and an awakening to our planet’s resources. In our daily lives Uranus wants to shake thing up. Weeding is both physical and metaphorical.
At this New Moon Uranus is making a negative contact to Saturn, Venus and Mars so relationships can be at breaking point. However both Venus and Mars are moving quickly, so its best not to make any rash decisions.
Pluto is the slowest moving planet and currently travelling through Capricorn from 2008 until 2024. It is the God of the Underworld and the unconscious. It is assigned to Scorpio who also have Mars as their ruler. The transit of Pluto in Capricorn calls for deconstruction of the establishment and institutions.
At this New Moon both the Sun and the Moon are opposite Pluto. Pluto rules buried power, it connects to the Mafia, so the light of consciousness the Sun brings (exact on July 17th) may reveal some disturbing news about those in power.
Each sign of the zodiac is connected to one of these archetypes.
Aries: The Warrior, Taurus: The Lover, Gemini: The Storyteller, Cancer: The Mother,
Leo: The Sovereign, Virgo: The Healer, Libra: The Lover, Scorpio: The Transformer,
Sagittarius: The Explorer, Capricorn: The Strategist, Aquarius: The Renegade and Pisces: The Dreamer.

Archetype Report-Your 10 Teachers
Steven Forrest writes with poetic grandeur about the archetypes behind the planets, signs and house in your birth chart.
Freud divided the human mind into three compartments: ego, id, and superego. Astrologers do the same thing, except that our model of the mind differs from Freud’s in two fundamental ways.
First, it’s a lot more elaborate. Instead of three compartments, we have ten: Sun, Moon, and the eight planets we see from Earth.
As we’ll discover, each planet represents more than a circuit in your psyche. It also serves as a kind of Teacher, guiding you into certain consciousness.
Steven’s writing reflects his caring sense of the unique spiritual nature of each person and their important place on this planet.
He gently guides you through a very personal introduction to yourself, often identifying characteristics, talents and potential that you may not have previously expressed, but innately felt.
It is filled with truth and presented in a manner that allows you to acknowledge those truths about yourself that may not be readily revealed to even the people closest to you.
This Sky Within Report by Steven Forrest is a rewarding experience.
It’s like a conversation with a very close trusted friend. Steven writes:-
“In the pages that follow, you’ll tour your personal birthchart. But don’t expect the usual “Scorpios are sexy” stuff. You are a mysterious being in a mysterious cosmos.
You’re here for just a little while, a blink of God’s eye. You face a monumental task: figuring out what’s going on! In that spiritual work, astrology is your ally. How will it help?
Certainly not by pigeon holing you as a certain “type.”
Astrology works by reminding you who you are, by warning you about the comforting lies we all tell ourselves, and by illuminating the experiences that trigger your most explosive leaps in awareness.
After that, the rest is up to you.” Steven Forrest
