The New Moon in Cancer occurred yesterday at 12:24 am EDT 4:24 am GMT), Thursday, July 19, 2012, at 26 degrees. New moons signify a new cycle, new beginnings, and rebirth.

This New Moon, along with the Sun (also in Cancer) will highlight the watery Cancer qualities of sensitivity and patience, as well as fourth house themes of family and home. This Cancer New Moon period is the perfect time to resolve any familial wounds that may be present. Mercury and Uranus are both retrograde, also (Uranus until December 13, 2012 and Mercury until August 7, 2012), so you may find yourself reflecting and re-evaluating situations or people that before you wouldn’t have.
