Look out for the new moon in Cancer on July 9, 2021.
This new moon is all about refamiliarizing yourself with affection and closeness.
All the zodiac signs will feel this urge for connection, but Cancer, Capricorn, and Leo will feel it most.
Remember hugging—that thing you used to do in pre-pandemic life without thinking about heavy stuff like another person’s vaccination status? Well, the new moon in Cancer has big plans to bring it back.
This astrological event is happening on July 9, 2021, and it’ll give you all the warm and fuzzy feels, according to Donna Page, a certified astrologer in Atlanta.
Naturally, there’s a lot more to it than that. Here’s what else your zodiac sign can expect from the new moon in Cancer.
What does the new moon in Cancer mean for your sign?
As you’re probably aware, the moon has specific phases and each looks a little different. A new moon happens when Earth lines up with the sun, making the moon look pretty much invisible from where you're standing. There are usually 12 new moons a year, and each one is synced up with a different astrological sign.
This new moon is in the sign of Cancer, and it’s giving you a serious craving for comfort. Like, if it was socially acceptable to hang on the sidewalk and hug everyone in sight, you’d do it.
You’ll be all about spending time with the people who feel like they just get you, whether that's your best buds, your S.O., your family, or a combo of all three. But these feels aren't only limited to the people you're super close to. You’re more than ready to connect with people you haven’t seen in a while. Maybe you’ll feel an urge to get back in your office at work, or you’ll (finally!) plan a trip to visit your high school friend who lives across the country.
One thing you won’t be into is burning the candle at both ends. Like, work is great and all, but it’s summer, ya know? You’ll put in your time at your desk, but you’ll also throw a long lunch or two into the mix.
As for your dating life…if it’s not laid back, you’re not interested. You’re all about poolside hangs, margs al fresco, and concerts in the park. Anything that requires more effort is a definite "no" from you.
How will the new moon in Cancer impact the rest of your year?
Tapping into your inner emotions and realizing you could use a little more comfort in your life is never a bad thing. Expect all the long-overdue hugs to feel extra amazing, and don't be surprised if you make a point to start being more affectionate with the people you love going forward.
Plus, catching up with old friends will help you realize how many people you’ve lost touch with over the past year-plus, pushing you to connect with even more old buddies. Perhaps it's time to start planning a big reunion for 2022?
To top it all off, taking a more laid-back approach to work and your love life will look really good on you. You’ll realize you don’t need to go hard all the time to get excellent results, and that’ll push you to slow down a little more in the future.
Got it. Now, when is the next new moon?
The next new moon is on August 8 in the sign of Leo. During this new moon, you’ll be all about wowing people, whether it’s at work or happy hour.
Until then, enjoy kicking back and being cozy. Ahhh.
