New Moon in CancerRelationships could get a little fraught or heated this weekend as Mars squares Jupiter in Libra. Themes of unfairness, bullying or inequality could rear their ugly heads, as could a tendency to go off the deep end or rush things in matters related to home, family and food.

They key is not to over-react or overdo anything. Jumping to premature conclusions or attempting to rush decisions will only excerbate things. A light touch, rather than a heavy hand, is what is required now if you want to win people over or influence them.

Instead, focus your efforts on unlocking the potential for fresh starts and new approaches offerred by Saturday’s New Moon in Cancer.

With Mercury hovering close by, this soli-lunar event is likely to coincide with an important message of hope or renewal from a family member or someone from your intimate circle. You may also decide to travel to see a loved one at this time.

The Sabian symbol for the 3rd degree of Cancer is: An arctic explorer leads a reindeer through icy canyons.

In this scenario, the explorer is obviously inexperienced/unfamiliar with terrain that is potentially dangerous/hazardous; while the reindeer is perfectly suited to this environment.

The message therefore seems to be to trust your deeper instincts  – the wise part of you that instinctively knows how to navigate through new and potentially hazardous/dangerous situations. So, when it comes to handling new or difficult experiences, let your unconscious, more animalistic side guide you through unchartered waters towards safety.

Lynda Hill’s keywords for this symbol include:
Using animal instincts to get through tough times. Facing bad weather and hardship. Following the leader without knowing where one’s going. Unfamiliar surroundings. The point of no return. Being in a cul-de-sac. Being led around by the hand (or the nose). Treading carefully. Icebergs. Glaciers. Snow and ice. Risky ventures. The Titanic story.
