Home, family, feelings
and your inner world
The symbolism of this New Moon brings the Moon (your emotional commitment, intuitive feelings, and private life interests) into union with the Sun (your personal ambitions, your outward focus, your self-image) and points your attention emphatically at "home life issues."
The New Moon in Cancer is a double dose of concern with domestic matters, the condition and comfort of your physical dwelling, the satisfaction you get from your private life, the welfare and safety of family members and other loved ones, the security you feel in your "inner world," and the feelings of support and "family alliance" you share with the important people in your life.
