Welcome in the New Moon Phase from July the 5th, 2024

We can observe the phases of the moon with the naked eye, making them among the most fascinating astronomical behaviors. Astrology finds them to be deeply rich sources of thought and interpretation. Among the 9 phases – New, Waxing Crescent, 1st Quarter Half, Waxing Gibbous, Full, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter Half, Waning Crescent, and Balsamic – the New and Full Moons capture most of the attention. This article will look at the New Moon. It includes a “creation activity” associated with the sign of this New Moon. The idea originates from Jan Spiller’s book: New Moon Astrology: The Secret of Astrological Timing to Make All Your Dreams Come True.

New Moon – Let’s Start Something!

The Cancer New Moon will occur on June 5th at 14 degrees and 23 minutes. In my Eastern Standard Time zone, it will happen at 6:58 pm.

It takes 29.5 days from one New Moon to the next, spending approximately 2 and ½ days in a sign. Just before the New Moon begins, the 3 days of the previous moon phase is the Balsamic Moon. That period is ideal for meditating, reflecting, and releasing; all in preparation for the New Moon.

The first 12 to 24 hours after the New Moon begins is the best time to initiate energy. We will explore each New Moon using Jan Spiller’s suggested actions to take advantage of this period of inspiration.

The energy of the New Moon perfectly suits embarking on a first date, exploring novel experiences, and visiting uncharted places. It’s an opportunity that unfolds each month, inviting you to synchronize your actions with the fresh beginnings. Keeping track of the New Moon allows you to deliberately engage in something new. Take the time to initiate a project aligning with the Moon’s unique energies as it travels through different signs.

New Moon in Cancer

During the New Moon in Cancer, we immerse ourselves in themes of nurturing and emotional sensitivity. Cancer’s influence prompts us to focus on creating a secure and supportive environment, both for ourselves and those around us. This lunar phase encourages us to connect deeply with our emotions and the needs of our loved ones. It’s a time to strengthen bonds with family and home, and to seek emotional fulfillment through intimacy and heartfelt connections. Consequently, this New Moon inspires us to nurture our inner world and cultivate a sense of emotional security and belonging.

This New Moon will occur at 14d23m of Cancer, making its Sabian symbol 15 Cancer, “A group of people who have overeaten and enjoyed it.Jones says, “This is a symbol of the inescapable richness of life in any normal manifestation of itself, here given emphasis on the side of the rewards which come to man as a result of his own efforts. There are penalties whenever he attempts to freeze the present as a promise for the future or seeks to overindulge himself in one direction as compensation for the consequences of inadequacy in another, but individuality in its fullness has recurrent and consistent assurance that its potentials will not be dissipated.” The key word is: SATISFACTION.

The Numbers of This New Moon

This New Moon will occur on 07/5/2024, so the number for this day is 20, which reduces to 2. The New Moon in Cancer, influenced by the numerology of 2, heralds a period of deep emotional connection with others. Aligned with Cancer’s empathic energy, this lunar cycle invites us to deepen our relationships, embracing emotional needs and desires.

The number 2 symbolizes harmony and balance, urging us to seek cooperation and mutual understanding in our interactions. During the New Moon in Cancer, we want to cultivate loving relationships, working together to nurture each other. It’s a time for reminiscing, sharing secrets, and supporting each other where we feel most vulnerable.

The Major Arcana cards for this number are The High Priestess (2), Justice (11), and Judgement (20). They represent intuition, detached decision making, and consequences. The High Priestess guides the Fool to trust their inner wisdom and intuition. Justice teaches the Fool about fairness, truth, and the consequences of their actions. And Judgement reminds the Fool of the importance of self-reflection and accountability. Each card carries profound lessons that help the Fool navigate their journey with wisdom and insight.

The New Moon falls on the 5th. During the New Moon in Cancer, influenced by 5, we enter a phase of dynamic change and exploration. Cancer’s influence prompts us to nurture our emotional well-being and seek security in our surroundings. The number 5 symbolizes adaptability, curiosity, and freedom, encouraging us to embrace new experiences and adapt to changing circumstances. Embrace Cancer’s nurturing energy and allow it to guide you in exploring new emotional depths in your personal life. Trust in your ability to navigate transitions with resilience and cultivate a sense of security during this intense lunar phase.

New Moon Wishing (A Tribute to Jan Spiller’s Work)

I deeply appreciate the practical applications of astrology. And one gem is Jan Spiller’s book, “New Moon Astrology: The Secret of Astrological Timing to Make All Your Dreams Come True.” Spiller emphasizes that wishing is not mere idle desire but a conscious act of responsibility. To harness this energy, you must be aware of the New Moon’s timing in your time zone. Once you know it, write your wishes within 8 to 24 hours after it becomes new.

Once the New Moon’s energy is underway, it’s essential to take pen to paper. Though digital options abound, handwriting your wishes and intentions is integral to the energy ritual.

Spiller advises crafting up to no more than 10 wishes, as an excess of requests may dissipate energy. Personally, I vary between 3 to 7 wishes, depending on the New Moon and my life circumstances at the time. Aligning your statements with the New Moon’s sign when you write your intentions adds an extra layer of potency.


Knowing your chart will help you understand which New Moons will be stronger, while others may be weaker. So, here are the “nuts and bolts”. Sit down somewhere you can be comfortable, get your favorite pen, and write your wishes/intentions. Wording is very important, and Spiller suggests starting each sentence with, “I wish/want …”.

During the New Moon in Cancer, consider the following wishes:

  • I wish to nurture deeper emotional connections with my loved ones.
  • I want to create a secure and loving home environment that brings me comfort and stability.
  • I wish for emotional healing and release of past hurts that no longer serve me.
  • I want to cultivate self-care practices that nourish my emotional well-being.
  • I wish to explore my intuitive abilities and trust my inner guidance more deeply.
  • I want to strengthen my sense of belonging and connection to my family and community.

After jotting down your wishes, find a meaningful place for safekeeping and revisit them periodically. Placing them in a journal or a special box by your bedside is a wonderful choice. Remember that the choice of paper and the pen you use play a role in this process. Being deliberate in every detail is key.

Happy New Moon Wishing!
