17 July Week Ahead Horoscope | All 12 Sign’s Horoscope ✧*:North & South Node shift signs!

There is an emotionally and karmically charged New Moon in Cancer this week, on Tuesday 17th - 18th July 2023. This New Moon in Cancer will be an especially psychic lunation, we may be made aware that we need to call in more nurturing situations in life. Cancer energy may bring experiences that bring on emotionally heightened states so we can all actually feel the collective pain around these themes. We pretty much have to shut off our intuitions everyday just to participate in this ‘normal’ world. If we cannot connect to our intuition regularly however, we can find ourselves in painful circumstances that reflect back an inability to connect with your own body.

Caring for and making space to create a nurturing container ‘a safe space’, and be able to carry this around with you to connect to, as you need, is a big lesson in life. All you have is yourself sometimes, well, often times, so nurturing this relationship and respect with your body and it’s’ feelings is crucial. Cancerians may find this is a big focus of their lives’ story, and this may be coming up for many during this time, especially for those that are heavy Lunar ruled or Lunar dominant.

The New Moon will be opposite Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn, Pluto Retrograde is assisting us in wrapping up karma to do with systems and authority. Pluto opposing this New Moon really highlights how we are all feeling emotionally and how we are being affected by our fears. Things may be clicking in what new directions you need to head in. Mars in Virgo is opposing Saturn Retrograde in Pisces, and with this, there is a lot of energy that can be used for refocusing the vision and tuning in to your true emotions. Saturn in Watery Pisces, going Retrograde can bring a sense of distrust in all directions we feel called in but there is energy that you need to act now or be uncomfortable for even longer.

The New Moon, however will be supported by Medusa Asteroid and Uranus in Taurus, indicating our inner value systems and truest desires are helping us ground in during this time. The New Moon in Cancer will also trine Neptune Retrograde, further showing just how intense and strong our intuitions are right now. Neptune Retrograde is allowing us all to see a different approach to how we use intuitive information and intuitive guidance. We have all changed so much already, under this Saturn transit in Pisces! Be kind and compassionate to yourself, and your human-nature, as an emotional being!

On the 18th of July just over an hour after the New Moon in Cancer becomes exact, the Collective North Node will shift into Aries, and with it the Collective South Node into Libra. This shift of the karmic nodes is going to be a big one, as this will begin the Aries North Node and Libra South Node Eclipse Cycle. The Story of the North and South Nodes and how these two points interplay with the Planets and Angles of our Natal Charts is about balance, integration, and flow between the Masculine and Feminine energies. These two points can bring about past-life experiences and can also push you into a completely new path that may bring up emotions and energy. We are urged with these experiences to trust and make a leap into new things, regardless of a resurgence of past fears and inner feelings of lack saying we can’t.

Working with the Aries and Libra Axis will be majorly different from the Taurus and Scorpio Axis we have been leaning on and learning from, over the past two and a half years. The signs we are moving into have the same ruling Planets, Venus and Mars. With this, we can expect that moving from Fixed to Cardinal Signs will bring experiences of crisis’ and tests for what has come through to us during the time of the North Node being in Taurus. This energy can often bring experiences to fight to create foundations and balance. This may be especially true for Relationships, The Justice system, Families and Small business.
