Astrological replace for the week of July 17-24, 2024

Most cancers New Moon. I wrote about this in final week’s forecast in order that we might be prepared for the New Moon on Monday the seventeenth, however it’s possible you’ll wish to catch up right here for those who missed it. The lunar energies peak within the early afternoon EDT and can fade over the following few days. This a time to reassess the threads of our connections to others and the energy of these connections.

Most cancers represents the household of origin but it surely’s greater than that – it’s the tribe wherein we discover ourselves, the communities that we construct for ourselves, and the households which we create. Dominated by the Moon, Most cancers teaches that communities and interpersonal bonds nourish the center and provides us a protected area from which we are able to emerge as more true variations of ourselves.
