How The September 25 New Moon Will Affect You If You're A Cancer

For those who follow astrology, the full moon is a time of culminating energies, intentions coming to fruition, and harvesting seeds that have been planted. As such, it gets a great deal of attention (folk legends help the full moon stay famous, too!). But the new moon is an equally powerful lunar phase, just in an inverse way (via Goop). The new moon is a time of turning your focus inward to set those intentions, evaluate your priorities, and plant those seeds that will grow and be ready to harvest at the time of the full moon.

The new moon is a time of new beginnings, of quiet introspection, and of thoughtful, intentional planning. Depending on your sign, each new moon will affect you differently, as each one occurs in a different zodiac season. This new moon on September 25 will occur in Libra. If you are a Cancer, here's what you can expect. 

Cancer during Libra season

As a Cancer, you are represented by the crab (via Allure). Though you are a water sign, like the crab, you are equally comfortable in the elements of both water and earth. In other words, you are equally well equipped to navigate the world of emotion and the inner world as you are able to navigate the world of practicality and real-world situations. Balance is the name of the game for you, and interestingly, that is also always the theme of Libra season, which began on September 23 (via Beacon). 

This Libra season will inspire all of us to reevaluate how we are balancing our priorities in every area of our lives. If something feels out of alignment in your professional, personal, or romantic life, Cancer, it will make itself highly visible at this time, giving you an opportunity to use both your emotional adeptness and practicality to set it straight and attain better harmony.   

How the September 25 new moon will affect Cancer

This new moon on September 25 is going to happen in your fourth house, Cancer, which is focused on your domestic life (via Bustle). This means, that as a person who by nature loves to be home and loves to continually and carefully improve and build a domestic life that brings you peace, this new moon will have you seeking better balance at home.

Some may call it nesting, but whatever you call it, you are likely to be drawn to make your living space as cozy and lovely as possible at this time, which might mean decorating for fall, inviting the person or people you love most to sit around your fireplace, or starting a DIY project you've been wanting to tackle. This is the time to evaluate what you want your home to feel like to you. Set intentions and make plans to help make that feeling of home a reality, whether it means focusing on who you want to share it with, how you want to decorate it, or where you want to move. 

For Cancer, home really is where the heart is, so make sure your heart is happiest as it can be in the place you live.
