The New Moon is a time of action, manifestation and creation as the Moon and the Sun inhabit the same sign and bring strong energies that influence our emotions, thoughts and lives.
Cancer is all about protection, security and safety so many will be feeling that the urge to batten down the hatches and withdraw. This is an excellent time to shift your focus onto your home life, family and your personal goals.
