New Moon in Cancer + Mercury Retrograde: July 8th 2013: New Emotions!
Cancer is considered the sign of the Great Mother of Life, the nurturing power of our emotional body…feelings let us know if something is good or bad for us. When we ignore our emotional intelligence, we create disorder and chaos in our lives and in the world. So pay attention to your body and your feelings this month and for this new Moon, plant seeds of emotional intelligence…”
“This New Moon is conjunct Mercury retrograde, so messages will run deep. Use the New Moon energy to go within and have a talk with yourself about your life. What’s really important to you? Is outer monetary security more important than inner emotional security? Why are you here on Earth? What’s your destiny? If you put in the time, you will get answers.”
“The New Moon is also opposite Pluto in Capricorn and square Uranus in Aries. What changes do you want to see in your own life and in our collective life? What unique gift can you bring to the table? Add some of those seeds to the mix.”

GEMINI/CANCER Cusp, June 19 – June 24: Also called the Cusp of Magic, the GEMICAN is an overlapping and admixture of the third sign of the zodiac, Gemini, and the fourth sign of the zodiac, Cancer. The GEMICAN can be symbolically likened to the period around twenty-one years of age in the human life as well as literally marking the beginning of summer in the northern hemisphere. The GEMICAN cusp may be said to represent Magic. During this period of the year many plants are coming into lush, full bloom. The length of days has increased to its maximum and around June 21 (summer solstice) the day is longer and the night shorter than at any other time of the year. This is the time of traditionally magical “midsummer’s eve”, a warm enchanted night, replete with bewitching smells and sounds, on which supernatural events take place. In human development, at the age of twenty-one, adolescence is over and adulthood is said to begin. This is a period in which Magic plays a key role—particularly in terms of the magnetic power of love and the enchantment of romance. The young adult experiences an almost childlike wonder and awe at the beauty of the world and the many magical horizons which have opened up. This is a time for friendships, love affairs and marriages to lend a transpersonal ecstasy to life, in which the individual surrenders to the power of the dyad or to the rapture of the world.
The days which comprise the Gemini/Cancer cusp reveal some of this manifestation of magic, not only in the airy and ephemeral nature of Gemini, but also in the deep feeling of Cancer, in which emotional refinement, inward exploration and nurturing also play their part.
THE GEMICAN PERSONALITY: In some ways the GEMICAN may be spoken of as an inspired individual. Whether their inspiration is more private or public in nature, those born on this cusp have a highly devotional streak in which caring impulses are manifested toward their loved ones, or toward an occupation or cause. GEMICANS can thus be self-effacing, in that their egos are often put in the service of a higher power. For this reason, particularly on first meeting, they rarely impress one as brightly lit-up, dynamic individuals but rather profound and thoughtful people with a softer glow that comes from deep within.
Every cusp personality comprises conflicting elements, being influenced by two very different adjacent signs. In the case of the GEMICAN personality, however, airy, light and energetic Gemini traits complement the watery, feeling and sensitive aspects of Cancer by lending ethereal grace and charm. The main conflict arises between the mental logic and precision of Gemini, and the more diffuse, subtle emotionality of Cancer. Furthermore, as thought-feeling types, those born on this cusp can lack earthiness and fiery or intuitive impulsiveness. Those born on the GEMICAN cusp are attracted to ecstatic states, and fortunately they are capable of finding inspirational qualities in even the most ordinary of everyday activities. But their lives are only given full meaning when love and romance are allowed to bloom.
ADVICE FOR GEMICANS: Exercise your magical powers with care. You may need to be a bit tougher on yourself. Keep your eye on the goal and resist any tendency to drift. Do not lose yourself so readily in ecstatic experiences or you may have trouble finding yourself again. Beware of repressing your feelings or allowing destructive emotions to control you.
