The Cancer new moon on Monday, July 20, 2020, is opposite Saturn. So new moon July 2020 brings restrictions, tests, and hardship. A serious attitude, patience, and hard work are needed as you struggle against the odds.
The July 2020 new moon joins a star with an impulsive, rash, and argumentative nature. This makes it even more important to stay focused on your goals with determination and persistence. Saturn rewards responsibility and dedication with achievement and recognition.
There’s no need to include everyone in your circle of trust, Aries. But you shouldn’t go out of your way to exclude people, either. It may seem like someone’s trying to take your place, but at this new moon, it’s more likely they’re just looking for their own. Move on, and move ahead in your surroundings and space, with a handle on feeding and nurturing self and others, talking with care to elders, making yourself heard regarding your needs– feeling comfortable and at ease. Recognize where improvements can be made but importantly what’s already been accomplished.
It’s a new week, with a New Moon in Cancer (at 1.32 pm EDT) to help us reset and refresh – and enjoy a new beginning! Now in the thoughtful, conversational realms of your horoscope, Sun, Moon and Mercury hone in with a focus on communication skills, language, rapport, and your siblings, neighbors, and local environments. Some ideas are like a fine wine. They get truer and wiser with age. But others are more like fast food. Whatever nutritional value they originally had, they lose their flavor pretty quickly. At this new moon, be a connoisseur at distinguishing the timeless ideas from the outdated ones.
Name it and claim it, Gemini! You’re finally feeling secure enough to identify and advocate for your needs. But if your own needs aren’t being met, chances are that others aren’t being taken care of, either. At this new moon, look for strength (and safety) in numbers. Move on, and move ahead in your work, with a handle on feeding valued and rewarded, compensated – feeling comfortable and at ease. Recognize where improvements can be made but importantly what’s already been accomplished. Issues of debt, loans, or mutual gains – and responsibility – looms large, and might restrict or limit how far you’re able to focus on your own role.
Baby steps, Cancer! After a period of solitary reflection, this new moon finds you tentatively venturing out. Chances are, you have something new and meaningful to share with others. But it may take a while before you feel totally comfortable putting yourself out there. Take all the time you need. Focus on the way you present yourself, your lifestyle, concentrations and value; make note of the efforts you intend to make around vitality, your outlook and your solo endeavors, the way you maintain presence & keep a sense of independence & self-sufficiency. Move on, & move ahead with an ability to hold your own, feeling present & able, making yourself heard regarding your needs, feeling comfortable & at ease. Recognize where improvements can be made but importantly what’s already been accomplished and take up space.
Lockdown is over, Leo! You’re done suppressing your sensitive side. But at this new moon, the real self-discipline begins: Knowing when, where, and with whom it’s safe and appropriate to show vulnerability. Be gentle with yourself, though, as it’s probably something you’ll learn through trial and error. Focus on ways you feel at ease with the sensation of anticipation, gestation, preparation, and the unknown, with scandals, mysteries and misunderstandings; make note of the efforts you intend to make moving beyond difficult periods of isolation, or think about matters from the sidelines in a lucid fashion, letting go–surrendering control. Balance wellness, work and industrious efficiency while shining a light on the more sensitive subjects that are uncertain, unpredictable and trying… Remember, to accept defeat needn’t be ‘defeatist’.
“If you see something, say something.” Lately, Virgo, you’ve seen some things that you’ll never be able to un-see. And at this new moon, you feel responsible for speaking up and acting on them. Keep your focus on what you can do within your own circle of influence. Mercury hone in with a focus on networks, and friendly allies or acquaintances, and ways you band together with a common cause or Endeavour in mind. Your passions and interests have no doubt flourished, established thanks to long-term efforts, endurance, & persistence for the people, places and things you love, yet these might also seem to be a heavy burden today! Balance heart felt pleasures that are yours alone with consideration for your spirit and physical family.
Feelings are meant to be shared, Libra. But not all feelings are meant to be shared publicly—at least not until we’ve taken some time to process them for ourselves. Whatever you’re ready to express at this new moon, it’s likely to resonate and have a great emotional impact on others. Your ability to nurture, nest and parent, show interest in your clan, and honor household matters looms large, and might restrict or limit how far you’re able to ascend! Emotional endurance and boundaries you’ve established over the long-term are to be considered, and might even seem a heavy burden today. Balance security and nurture with shining a light on the more prolific position you uphold…
“Protecting” vs. “policing”: For you, Scorpio, this isn’t only a question of social justice. It’s also an important distinction for you to make in your attitudes toward others. As concerned as you may feel, you might have to trust that—like you—others are capable of making the right choices. Communication and navigation skills have no doubt flourished – the way you deal with (neighbors,) family members, or people in your environment, including close work colleagues, kindred spirits, or pals – established thanks to long-term efforts, endurance, & persistence, yet the relational aptitude you possess might be a heavy burden today! You may have had to work hard at getting your point across, improving articulation, learning how to speak up. Express yourself with authority, while also shining a light on the more foreign subjects on your mind…
“No judgment,” Sag? It’s a great idea in theory, but not always easy in practice. Especially when you’re faced with someone who seems to contradict every value you hold dear. But giving them the cold shoulder is unlikely to win them over. At this new moon, warmth is the way. Capabilities around your job, money, pay packet, and your sense of personal attributes – your role, contribution and what you do looms large, and might restrict or limit how far you’re able to come together as a joint entity. Your capacity to make a living and succeed in the material realms – building and developing – has no doubt flourished thanks to long-term efforts, endurance, & persistence, yet your input and success might be a burden today! Balance your input with how you might sustain relationships…
Missed connections can be so frustrating, Capricorn. But even if your first attempts at reaching out have come back empty-handed, it may be premature to give up. Before going back to your self-isolating ways, this new moon urges you to give it at least one more try. Your own journey and autonomy looms large, how you’ve risen up, meeting life’s challenges head on and might restrict or limit how far you’re able to focus on others. Your responsibilities have no doubt taken on new meaning, established thanks to long-term efforts, endurance, & persistence, yet the accolades you wear as an authority might be a heavy burden today! Balance your struggle, growth and development while shining a light on collaborative efforts, too…
Self-care doesn’t equal self-indulgence, Aquarius. In fact, it takes a lot of discipline to consistently do what supports and sustains your own wellbeing. But at this new moon, perhaps the most challenging discipline of all for you is replacing overly critical or punishing self-talk with gentler, kinder words of encouragement. Your solitary, secret life of retreat, charity, escapism and addiction looms large, and might restrict or limit how far you’re able to focus on healthy lifestyle choice sand maintenance – your chores and regular employment. Your ability to draw back, deal and heal in unconscious, subtle ways, overcome hurts, misunderstandings, scandals, bad habits and hard circumstances (helping others) has developed thanks to your own long-term efforts, endurance, & persistence, yet the tools, habits or nuances developed might feel like a heavy burden today!
What’s more important than finding your voice, Pisces? Knowing—and believing in—what you have to say. You can’t always predict or control how your message will be received. But if the energy and intention behind it are pure, others are likely to respond in good faith. Your support system, network, allies, (the industry, society, or network you care about,) and sense of teamwork could loom large, and the influence or momentum you’ve developed might now restrict or limit how far you’re able to focus on personal gratification. Your position has no doubt flourished, established thanks to long-term efforts, endurance, & persistence, yet your popularity might be a heavy burden today! Balance engaging with peers, friends and followers – your audience – with the energy it takes to create something great.
