New Moon July 5, 2024 – Shining Bright (2024)

New Moon July 5, 2024 – Shining Bright (1)

The new moon in Cancer on July 5, 2024, is closely aligned with the bright star Sirius. It amplifies the astrological influence of the new moon in July 2024 with immense energy and power. Sirius is associated with renown, wealth, faithfulness, devotion and passion.

Mars sextile Staurn within a few hours of the July 20245 new moon adds courage, determination and self-discipline. At the same time, a challenging aspect to Ceres suggests a theme of relationship imbalance, especially regarding the role of nurturing.

New Moon In Cancer July 2024

The new moon on Friday, July 5, 2024, is at 14°23′ Cancer. The red aspect in the chart below is Ceres opposite the new moon. The aspect orb is almost exact, but as a minor planet, Ceres may only have a moderate astrological influence.

Saturn makes a positive trine aspect to the new moon. Although it is weak at 5 degrees orb, it does link this new moon directly to the most significant aspect in the chart, Mars sextile Saturn.

However, the astrology of the new moon in July 2024 is really about a star at 14°24′ Cancer called Sirius. It is “one of the most important objects in the heavens, even rivaling the Sun and Moon in its influence.” [1]

New Moon July 2024 Astrology

Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives a refreshing burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So, the new moon in July 2024 is excellent for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs while searching for new and inventive ways to progress.

Mars Sextile Saturn

Mars sextile Saturn less than four hours before the July 2024 new moon gives strength, courage, determination, endurance and self-discipline. With ambition and patience, you can plan your actions methodically and efficiently. A strong work ethic and attention to detail mean you can attack complex and challenging tasks.

Combined with the energy and initiative of the new moon, this aspect is ideal for achieving anything you passionately desire. Greater loyalty and commitment can strengthen existing relationships. A new romance is also possible. It may be slow to fire up, but the long-term outlook isgood.


Minor planet Ceres rules motherly love, female reproductive issues, family bonds and relationships. As a virgin goddess, Ceres represents independent single women and sole parents. As a grain goddess, Ceres rules the growing of plants and food crops, the harvest, natural resources and the environment.

The new moon opposite Ceres can highlight differences or imbalances in intimate relationships that lead to resentment. You or your partner may become more dependent and need more nurturing. Ceres also raises issues about the rights and freedoms of wives and single mothers. There will be news stories about human rights being denied by controlling husbands, parents, in-laws, states and religions.

New Moon Constellations

The new moon in July 2024 is in the Sign of Cancer, but as the star map below shows, it is in the Constellation of Gemini. The Signs and the Constellations do not match up. Over the last 2000 years, the Constellations have moved nearly 30° out of alignment with the Signs because of the precession of the equinoxes.

The Zodiac was invented only as a measuring device. The degrees on the ecliptic line in the image below equate to those in the New Moon horoscope. I use the Fixed Star and Constellation like the ancient astrologers, not the Signs and Houses of modern astrology.

The longitude positions below show that the new moon conjunct Sirius is a powerful alignment.

  • 14°23′20″ Cancer – New Moon July 2024
  • 14°24′40″ Cancer – Alpha Canis Majoris, Sirius

The Scorching One

Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky, almost twice as bright as Canopus, the next brightest star. Its name means the “Scorching One.” Its intense energy makes people shine brightly and sometimes burn too brightly. The best current example is Elon Musk with Sirius conjunct Ascendant (0°11′) and Mercury (0°22′).

Sirius marks immense creative talents in any field with ‘only’ the warning that there may be more inner power than can be safely managed. Harshly aspected, it can show a psychotic person, truly a menace to himself and the community, but in better condition, we have here the star of the truly great figures in every field of human endeavor. [2] (Elon Musk has Sirius and Mercury rising square Uranus).

Robson says Sirius gives honor, renown, wealth, ardor, faithfulness, devotion, passion and resentment, and makes its natives custodians, curators and guardians, but gives danger of dog bites. [3]

Rigor adds ambition, a love of exercising power, the grandeur of outlook, business prosperity, favors from superiors and friends, and questionable writings, speeches, and statements that could bring latent honors. Harsh aspects bring problematic actions and accusations, just or unjust. [4]

ConstellationCanis Major gives good qualities, charity and a faithful heart, but violent and dangerous passions. [3]

New Moon July 2024 Meaning

All new moons give the energy and initiative to make a fresh start and begin a new project. Mars sextile Saturn makes your July 2024 new moon ambitions and achievements more significant, substantial and lasting. It makes you more passionate, courageous, determined and self-disciplined.

The opposition to Ceres gives this new moon a theme of relationship imbalance, especially regarding the role of nurturing, dependence and the rights and freedoms of wives and single parents.

Finally, the near-exact alignment of the July 5 new moon with the fixed star Sirius dramatically amplifies the energy and power of this moon phase. It brings faithfulness, devotion and passion and increases the likelihood of success.

Sirius also shines a spotlight on influential, rich and famous personalities. It favorsastrology, sports, government, business, military, public matters and metalwork.

Moon Phases

The influence of the July 5 new moon lasts four weeks up to the August 4 new moon. The best time to start new projects is during the two-week waxing moon phase, from July 5 to the July 21 full moon.
