This is an eclipse month. It means the energies are extra high. The eclipses are marked by points in the sky called lunar nodes. If the New or Full Moon is a certain number of degrees away from the Nodes, it’s a New or Full Moon eclipse. July’s New Moon Eclipse takes place on July 13 (Sydney) at 21 Cancer.
The Lunar Nodes are quite complex to explain here but think of them as a knot in the cosmos where energy gathers. On an energetic level, they are like portals that line up a few times a year with the Sun and the Moon, and when they do, there’s an eclipse.
Astrologer, Yasmin Boland says, if a regular New Moon is good for manifesting and intention setting, then a New Moon eclipse is that plus plus.
So – as there is a New Moon eclipse this month – this is the time to get our ducks in order, regardless of our star sign, in particular when it comes to matters domestic, as the New Moon is in the home sign of Cancer.

What needs sorting out in your home? At the very least think about this under this month’s New Moon eclipse.
Cancer is the sign which is all about home, family, hearth, kind, where home is, where you feel at home and other private matters. Once a year we get the New Moon eclipse here. That will trigger everyone’s chart differently, depending on their star sign (or rising sign). But overall it’s the time to work on your home.
What the New Moon Eclipse means for you.
In a nutshell, the coming six months promise changes in your private life and your home life, thanks to this week’s New Moon eclipse. Perhaps you’ve been living at home and you’re about to move in with friends. Or you’ve been living with friends and have decides to get a place on your own, or move in with your partner. For some, it’s a change to the family home, pure and simple. A house move. The property market might still be shaky, but your stars suggest this could be a great time to invest, if you can afford it without mortgaging yourself to the absolute hilt. There’s also a restart due for you with your family/personal life – particularly good news if you haven’t been getting on too well with your folks or partner. That can change now. Make it happen.

This week brings a big gift with it; a New Moon eclipse in your Mind Zone this week, which is going to make it possible for you to draw a line under all that happened in the past, and move on. It’s a great time to stop driving yourself crazy with your thoughts and worries, if you’ve been obsessing. In the coming six months, you can also expect your ability to talk your way in or out of anything to improve enormously. Your brain, what you say and what you write will be super-charged, even if you’re normally uncomfortable expressing yourself. This applies whether you’re talking to a friend, lover, colleague or boss, writing reports, SMSes, emails or even a novel. Expect to be very busy. It’s all go! Read more.
There are some powerful energies around this week and they could well leave you better off financially than you have been in a while. Expect at least one new source of income to open up for you this year. If you do want more cash, it’s crucial to realise that money is energy. It basically responds to our thoughts. If you under-sell yourself, people are unlikely to insist on paying you more (well, unless you’re really lucky and terribly charismatic!) If your self-image hasn’t recovered from a recent battering, take steps to change that, not just because it will boost your bank account but also because solid self-esteem is crucial. Start to stand up to others – see a professional counsellor about this if you think you need to. Read more.
