When Is The Next New Moon In Cancer

2022 new moon calendar: Important dates March 2, 2022. April 1, 2022. April 30, 2022. May 30, 2022.

What does the new moon in Cancer mean?

Every Cancer season, which this year runs from June 21 to July 22, we are drawn to spending time nesting and nurturing our relationships with the individuals we care about the most. Given that Cancer is the sign that rules the fourth house of domestic life, we might be motivated to be a little bit more domestic or couch potato-ish than usual. Your inner life, your roots, and your closest family relationships are all extremely essential aspects of your existence, and every year the Cancer new moon gives you the chance to get clarity on them.

Any new moon’s deep, dark canvas sky calls for introspection and self-care, but especially when the new moon is in Cancer, you might find it emotionally satisfying or even necessary to withdraw into your shell and become aware of your needs in order to then take deliberate action to ensure those needs are met.

Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, is currently transiting the forceful cardinal fire sign of Aries. This year’s new moon will form a squareto Jupiter, the most tense but also energizing angle that can occur between two celestial bodies. This could lead to a positive, social mood (which, if you’re more of a homebody, you might be hesitant to embrace) and a desire to take more drastic action than you might actually be capable of. Neptune will also be beginning its annual retrograde at the same time, switching from clouding reason to delivering reality checks.

The involvement of Jupiter and Neptune in this lunar event serves as a reminder to always do your research before embarking on any audacious new project.

When is the 2022 New Moon?

Here is a more thorough, day-by-day list of the celestial events that will occur between now and the following full moon. The times and angles are calculated using data from NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., so some of these specifics might not apply to you.

June 9-10

The bright star Spica will be visible from early Friday morning on June 9 to 10, 2022, roughly 7 degrees to the lower left of the waxing gibbous moon. As evening twilight finishes, the Moon will be visible roughly 45 degrees above the south-southwestern horizon (at 9:44 p.m. EDT). About five hours later, Spica will first set below the west-southwestern horizon (on Friday morning at 2:46 a.m.).

June 12-13

The bright star Antares will be visible on Sunday night into Monday morning, June 12 to 13, 2022, around 8 degrees to the lower left of the almost full waxing gibbous moon. As evening twilight ends, the Moon will be visible about 23 degrees above the south-southeastern horizon (at 9:46 p.m. EDT). Two hours later, at 11:46 p.m., the Moon will be at its highest point in the sky for the whole night. Antares will be visible to the left of the Moon by the time morning twilight starts on Monday at 4:30 a.m., and the pair will be about 10 minutes away from setting on the west-southwestern horizon. The Moon will have changed positions to the other side of Antares by Monday night as evening twilight comes to an end. The Moon will be 8 degrees to the upper right of Antares, and as Monday night goes on, the two will gradually diverge.

June 13-14

The mornings of June 13 and 14, 2022, are tied for the earliest sunrise of the year for the Washington, D.C. area (and related latitudes). Sunrise will occur at 5:42:11 a.m. EDT and morning twilight will start at 4:30 a.m. EDT for NASA Headquarters. The solar days close to the solstice are longer than 24 hours, hence the earliest sunrises of the year happen before and the latest sunsets happen after the summer solstice, despite the fact that it is the day of the year with the longest amount of daylight.

June 14: Next Full Moon

The following full moon will occur on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at 7:52 a.m. EDT. The Moon will be at perigee, or its closest point to the Earth during this orbit, in less than 12 hours, at 7:24 p.m. The proximity of this full moon to perigee qualifies it as a supermoon.

The full moon on Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning, June 14 to 15, 2022, will be the lowest full moon of the year, rising barely 23.3 degrees above the horizon at 1:56 a.m. EDT. The Moon will seem full from Sunday night through Wednesday morning.

June 16

The planet Mercury will look half-lit via a sufficiently large telescope on Thursday morning, June 16, 2022, when it reaches its greatest angular separation from the Sun as seen from Earth for this apparition (called greatest elongation). The date when Mercury and the Sun appear to be the furthest apart as seen from the Earth is different from the morning on June 25 when Mercury is highest above the horizon just before sunrise because the angle of the line between the Sun and Mercury and the horizon changes with the seasons.

Although the length of a solar day fluctuates during the year (as measured, for instance, from solar noon to solar noon), our 24-hour day is based on the average length of a day throughout the year. The longest solar day of this half of the year, lasting slightly more than 13 seconds longer than 24 hours, will fall between solar noon on Saturday, June 18, and solar noon on Sunday, June 19, in 2022. The longest solar days of the year will not be this one; those will occur between November 17, 2022, and January 25, 2023.

June 18

The planet Saturn will be visible early on June 18, 2022, about 8 degrees to the top left of the waning gibbous moon. Around midnight (12:04 a.m. EDT), the Moon will rise over the east-southeastern horizon, and morning twilight will start around 4:30 a.m.

June 21: Summer Solstice

The bright planet Jupiter will be visible early on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, around 6 degrees to the top left of the declining half Moon. After midnight, at 1:32 a.m. EDT, the Moon will rise over the eastern horizon, and morning darkness will start at roughly 4:30 a.m.

The summer solstice, which marks the astronomical end of spring and the start of summer, will occur on Tuesday at 5:13 a.m. EDT. On the day of the solstice, morning twilight will start at 4:31 in the morning, sunrise at 5:43 in the morning, solar noon at 1:09:49 in the afternoon when the Sun will be at its highest for the year at 74.56 degrees, sunset at 8:37 in the evening (making this the longest period from sunrise to sunset, 14 hours, 53 minutes, 42.1 seconds), and evening twilight at 9:49 in the evening.

June 22

The waning crescent moon will be seen between Jupiter and Mars on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. At 1:56 a.m. EDT, Mars will rise over the eastern horizon for the final time before dawn, and at 4:31 a.m., morning twilight, the Moon will be 29 degrees above the east-southeastern horizon.

June 23

The planet Mars will be visible early on June 23, 2022, about 6 degrees to the top right of the waning crescent Moon. By the time morning darkness starts at 4:31 a.m. EDT, the Moon will be 24 degrees above the eastern horizon, having risen over it well after midnight at 2:19 a.m. EDT.

June 25

The planet Mercury will barely peek over the eastern horizon early on Saturday, June 25, 2022, yet this will be its highest position for this apparition. Mornings in late June should be an excellent time to look for all five of the visible planets lined up in the sky in order of their distance from the Sun because Mercury will be bright enough to be visible when it rises even after morning darkness begins (with one more planet visible beneath your feet).

The bright planet Venus will be visible early on June 26, 2022, about 5 degrees to the right of the slender, declining crescent moon. Less than an hour before morning twilight starts, at 3:50 a.m. EDT, Venus will rise over the east-northeast horizon. When morning twilight starts at 4:32 a.m. EDT, Venus will be 7 degrees above the horizon.

June 27

As morning twilight begins at 4:31 a.m. EDT on Monday, June 27, 2022, the planet Mercury will rise above the east-northeastern horizon approximately 4 degrees to the lower right of the thin, waning crescent Moon. Before the sky gets too bright with morning, you might be able to spot these duo low on the horizon.

The Washington, D.C. area and nearby latitudes will have the earliest sunset of the year on Monday, June 27 and Tuesday, June 28, 2022, both at 8:37:29 p.m. EDT.

June 29

The Moon will be at apogee on Wednesday, June 29, 2022, at 2:09 a.m. EDT, the point in this orbit where it is the furthest away from the Earth.

Most lunisolar calendars begin a new month on the day of or the day after the new moon. On Wednesday, June 29, 2022 (at midnight in China’s time zone, which is 12 hours ahead of EDT), the sixth month of the Chinese calendar will begin. Tammuz begins on Wednesday, June 29, at sunset, according to the Hebrew calendar.

The beginning of each month in the Islamic lunar calendar corresponds to the first glimpse of the waxing crescent Moon. The Umm al-Qura Calendar of Saudi Arabia, which employs astronomical calculations to begin months in a more predictable manner, is now used by many Muslim communities. While this is one of four months for which the calendar dates are sometimes altered by the religious authorities of Saudi Arabia following actual sightings of the lunar crescent, using this calendar, sundown on Wednesday evening, June 29, 2022, will probably mark the beginning of Dhu al-Hijjah. The twelfth and last month of the Islamic calendar is Dhu al-Hijjah. Fighting is not permitted during one of the four sacred months. The Hajj and the Festival of the Sacrifice take place in the month of Dhu al-Hijjah. One of the Five Pillars of Islam is to do the Hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in one’s lifetime.

June 30

You might be able to view the bright star Pollux as the twilight on Thursday, June 30, 2022, ends at 9:49 p.m. EDT. The thin, waxing crescent Moon will be 2 degrees above the northwestern horizon, setting less than 15 minutes later.

July 2

The bright star Regulus will be visible on Saturday, July 2, 2022, about 8 degrees to the left of the thin, waxing crescent moon. As evening twilight ends at 9:49 p.m., the Moon will be 16 degrees above the west-northwestern horizon. Regulus will set first at 11:15 p.m. EDT, less than 1.5 hours after Regulus.

July 3

The bright star Regulus will be visible on Sunday evening, July 3, 2022, around 8 degrees to the lower right of the thin, waxing crescent Moon. As evening twilight ends at 9:49 p.m. EDT, the Moon will be 22 degrees above the western horizon, and Regulus will set first at 11:11 p.m., less than 1.5 hours later.

July 4: Independence Day

The Earth will be 3.4 percent further away from the Sun than it was during perihelion in early January when it reaches aphelion on Monday, July 4, 2022, at 3:10 a.m. EDT. Sunlight reaching the Earth at aphelion is about 6.5 percent less intense than sunlight reaching the Earth at perihelion because light intensity varies as the square of distance.

July 6

The Moon will seem half-full at 10:14 p.m. on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, as it enters its first quarter. EDT (when the Moon will be 29 degrees above the west-southwestern horizon).

July 7-8

The bright star Spica will be visible on Thursday evening until early Friday morning, July 7 to 8, 2022, about 5 degrees to the lower right of the waxing gibbous moon. As evening twilight ends at 9:47 p.m. EDT, the Moon will be 34 degrees above the southwest horizon, and Spica will be the first star to set after midnight at 12:56 a.m.

July 10-11

On Sunday evening into Monday morning, July 10 to 11, 2022, the bright star Antares will appear about 4 degrees to the lower right of the waxing gibbous moon. As evening twilight ends at 9:46 p.m., the Moon will be 26 degrees above the east-northeastern horizon. EDT, will reach its nighttime zenith at 10:28 p.m., about 40 minutes later, and Antares will set first below the west-southwestern horizon at 2:51 a.m., about 4 hours later.

Mercury will rise over the east-northeastern horizon at 5:20 a.m. on Monday, July 11, 2022, making it likely the last morning that Mercury will be visible in the glow of dawn during this apparition. EDT, exactly 32 minutes before 5:52 a.m. dawn.

July 13: The Full Moon After Next

5:06 a.m. on July 13, 2022, a Wednesday. EDT, the Moon will be at perigee, the point in its orbit where it is closest to the Earth.

The following full moon will occur on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, at 2:38 p.m. EDT. This will also be a supermoon because perigee is less than 10 hours away. Around this time, from early Tuesday morning until early Friday morning, the Moon will appear full for about three days.

What is the new moon phase?

The form of our Moon doesn’t actually changeit merely seems to! When viewed from Earth, the “amount of Moon that we see fluctuates in a cycle that repeats around once a month” (29.5 days). These variations are brought on by the relative locations of our Sun, Earth, and Moon.

The side of our Moon that faces the Sun is always lit, just as the Sun lights up the side of Earth that is visible during the day.

But what we can see from Earth tells a different tale. From the dim new Moon, we see the lighted portion of the Moon “grow from a sliver to a half to a full Moonand then the illuminated part drops, becoming thinner until there is no longer a visible Moon in the sky, and we are at the new Moon section of the cycle again.

A “new Moon” occurs when the Moon is between the Earth and the Sun due to its orbit around the Earth. The lit side of the Moon is facing away from Earth, making its surface appear black from here on Earth. From above the north pole, as our Moon continues to orbit the Earth counterclockwise, more and more of the lighted portion of the Moon is visible to us until it reaches the “full Moon stage.” When the Moon has shifted in its orbit so that Earth lies “between the Moon and the Sun,” a full moon results.

The amount of the Moon that we can see increases or waxes from its right side toward its left side between the new and full Moon. The quantity of illumination reduces or wanes from right to left as the moon moves past the full stage. When the Moon finally moves back into position between the Earth and the Sun, we may once more see the new Moon here on Earth.

In the southern hemisphere, the opposite of the northern hemisphere, the light of the Moon increases from the left to the right side in the waxing phase and the dark part increases in coverage from the left to the right in the waning phase. The Moon’s phases, however, happen simultaneously wherever a viewer is on Earth.

Which phase is the moon currently in?

Waning Crescent is the Moon’s current phase for today and tonight. Each day until the New Moon, the Moon’s radiance in this phase gets progressively less. As seen from Earth, the Moon is moving toward the Sun at this phase of the lunar cycle, and only a little portion of its night sidewhich is facing usis illuminated. If you’re prepared to get up early, this phase may be extremely lovely. It’s preferable to observe it an hour or two before sunrise. It can also be a fantastic moment to view the Moon’s surface characteristics. The craters and mountains cast long shadows along the edge where the lighted section meets the dark side, making it simpler to see them through a telescope or pair of binoculars.

How come the Moon is in Cancer?

Since the Moon rules the Cancer sign, all of the lunar virtuesemotion, empathy, and intuitionare amplified by being a Moon sign. Due to the cyclical nature of the Moon, inner cycles and the ebb and flow of emotional needs govern this sign.


Those who have a Cancer Moon in their natal chart will be greatly affected by their emotional presence, frequently even before Cancer speaks.

Cancer Even when it is being formed by or dominated by the emotions of others, the emotional climate around them has a significant impact on Moon. Because of this, their emotional health is constantly changing.

They frequently become sidetracked from their own path by taking on other people’s needs because of their capacity to absorb other people’s emotions. This can easily result in an emotional imbalance. When this occurs, Cancer Moons must be able to discern their own desires and balance their requirements by spending time alone in nature.

When is the Cancer full moon?

January 17: Cancer Full Moon

These lunations can make us more emotional than regular full moons because the moon governs care for cancer. Cancer is represented by the fourth house of home and family, and these adorable crabs always enjoy spending a comfortable evening with their favorite people and delicious food. Staying in this evening to spend time with your lover, a pet, or a current TV show can help you avoid any full moon conflict.
