Forget light and fluffy chit-chat. Today you'll want meaty, cut to the core, conversation as the Stars turn up your passion and intensity. You'll be particularly drawn to people with strong opinions and may even have a spirited debate or two, all in the name of a good meaningful exchange! If you would like to understand how the New Moon is affecting you based on YOUR chart then grab a New Moon Info Sheet.
Sorry to say you can expect to be a bit up against it this week when it comes to dealing with your nearests and dearests. Pluto the cantankerous planet (and that's putting it mildly!) is being triggered in your Love Zone by brash Mars. If one of your life #goals at the moment is to learn to control that temper of yours (it's been worse lately, right?) then you will need to do more deep-breathing and counting to ten. Problem solved.

Work hard, play harder! Plans and goals, particularly those instigated about six months ago, will show promise as the Full Moon on the 4th illuminates your area of dreams and aspirations. This sector is also about socialising and the Moon's emotive presence could heighten drama among certain friendships. If you've been techy with a friend it's a good idea to clear the air.
The rest of the month is about having fun and indulging in the pleasure principle! In fact, you'll have little choice in the matter as the Sun, fun-loving Venus and Jupiter all merge in your sector of creativity and leisure. Do you have a favourite pastime that you've been meaning to spend more energy on? If not, it's important to find an outlet for your artistic self-expression - use these placements to unleash your inner chef, interior designer or florist.
Those who have been working on a project can expect great leaps forward as the wonderful momentum and inspiring atmosphere keeps the juices flowing and cogs turning. If you've hit a snag or haven't quite known where to start a New Moon, also in this sector on the 18th, provides you with the perfect launching pad, especially considering projects commenced during this lunar phase have a higher rate of success.
As this area is also devoted to passion and love affairs you're likely to be more flirtatious than usual! Singles, use this to your advantage by working your wiles at friends' parties or employing modern technology to meet new people - Scorpios and Leos will be particularly attractive. If you're in a relationship the frisky and spontaneous vibes will work wonders and heighten the sparks between you and your partner.
How many times have you read what it means to be a Cancerian and wondered why it doesn't feel 100% right? The thing is that over the years, Cancerians have been drawn and redrawn as homebodies who want to cook by day and tend the kids by night and pretty much do nothing else. What a load of tosh! In between the baking and the child raising you are one of the most dynamic signs of the zodiac.
The reason behind your Home In The Little House On The Prairie- reputation is that you are intuitive - thanks to the fact you are ruled by the Moon. Add that to being kind-hearted (as most Cancerians are) and of course you pick up on others' feelings and then want to nurture those in need! This tendency to nurture others usually means you feed them. You listen to them. You get to see a passing parade of people through your life, all wanting some TLC. They come over for coffee and a chat with someone who makes them feel safe and you get another chance to Do Your Thing and care for them. Polish that halo. But we also know you have plenty more sides toyour personality.
Family and friends are important to you and you build a nest for your loved ones that only a fool thinks he or she could penetrate. Yes, you like to nurture others, but not because you're some rosy-cheeked old Granny-type in an apron. You also nurture because Cancer is an uber feminine sign (ruled by the Moon), and nurturing is part of the whole feminine thang.
What a lot of people don't mention is that Cancer is also associated with Diana, the Huntress. Far from being an old Granny-type, Diana the Huntress was a fabulous, go-ahead woman (who may or may not have liked to cook pig-on-a-spit for her beloveds).
Cancerians are often told that they are moody, and this is, or isn't true, depending on your definition of the word moody. If you take moody to mean frequent bad moods, it's not true. But if you take it to mean changing attitudes and moods, it is. Yes, being Moon-ruled means that as La Luna passes through all the signs of the zodiac each month - spending around two and a half days in each sign - you pick up on her vibe much more than most. A Gemini Moon? Chat, chat, chat. A Pisces Moon? Break out the wine and tell me a romantic story.
A tendency to cling to the past is one of the pitfalls Cancerians have to avoid. Times move on and things change - accepting this is one of the Cancerians' challenges. Being tenacious is one thing, clinging on when you know it's all said and done is another. Cancerians are also renowned for having the same hard exterior and soft interior of their symbol, the Crab. Fine but make sure you do let others know when you are feeling vulnerable - that is one of the keys to happiness for you.
What you need more than anything and more than most people is a sense of security. If you read advice written by astrologers to people romancing Cancerians, your lovers are usually advised to reassure you that they love you at least once a day, preferably 10 times. And yet, though you love to love and you love to nurture, you are often repelled by overly-needy people, almost as though you prefer to chose who you assist. But assist you do. No matter what your sex, you tend to have loads of female friends, and you mother most of them, just as you also mother your lover. Just remember to allow others to look after you, too.
Like they Tarot card of The Moon, you're quite enigmatic. Work it, Cancer, work it!
