The Cancer new moon on Friday, July 9, 2021, makes a positive link to Uranus. So the spiritual meaning of the new moon July 2021 astrology relates to positive change, freedom, excitement, and higher self-awareness. This is associated with partnership and compromise due to the fixed star joining the new moon.
Another major effect of the July 2021 new moon is delays, restrictions, unexpected setbacks, and disappointment associated with love and money because of a heavily aspected Venus. But the positive influence of Uranus gives the awareness, intuition, and inventiveness to overcome such potential problems.
New Moon July 2021 Astrology
The new moon on July 9, 2021, at 18°01′ Cancer is sextile Uranus. This is a positive influence but as shown below, there are also three challenging square aspects to Uranus. But Venus is the most heavily aspected planet so it is love and money that come under the greatest strain during this new moon. The problems associated with Venus will be discussed first, followed by the solutions provided by the new moon sextile Uranus.
New Moon Meaning
Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.
So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
Venus conjunct Mars brings an increased desire for intimate relations and sexual satisfaction. Driven by an intense need for sexual satisfaction, you can become very direct in your search for a mating partner. Because of the challenging aspects to Saturn and Uranus, this primal urge to reproduce can become raw and aggressive, making others feel uncomfortable.
But if you can channel your passion and enthusiasm, increased charisma and sex appeal make you highly attractive to your partner or potential partners. This is a good new moon to start creative projects, especially those combining the physical and artistic such as dance or sculpture.
Venus opposite Saturn can bring sadness and loneliness because of delays and limitations affecting your love life and finances. You may feel pressured by loved ones but the best thing to do now to show you care is to work hard, do practical things. Even though your efforts will probably be ignored, they will pay off in the long run. This is a good time for preparation work. Try to pay off any debts or at least organize them so you know where you stand.
Venus square Uranus can test the stability of a love relationship through unexpected urges or events. An increased need for freedom and excitement can test your patience with a loved one or lead to wandering eyes. But a healthy relationship will face no major drama, especially with an open-minded partner. If dating you may be attracted to exciting or eccentric people but avoid taking risks if meeting someone you know nothing about.
Saturn square Uranus brings restrictive change or unexpected restrictions. It can bring change that you don’t want. It also makes it harder to make the kind of changes you do want. This can be a very frustrating and tense time. But if you stay open-minded, patient, and flexible, what at first seem like challenges, can be turned into opportunities to rid yourself of negative, restrictive, and limiting things in your life.
New Moon Solutions
New Moon sextile Uranus brings positive change, pleasant surprises, and stimulating encounters. It gives the freedom and willingness to leave your comfort zone and try something new and exciting. You should feel comfortable expressing the more flamboyant, creative, or kinky side of your personality. This is a good time to meet new people and they could be unorthodox, eccentric, or from different cultural or ethnic backgrounds than your own.
Increased self-awareness, intuition, flashes of insight, curiosity, and inventiveness allow you to make new discoveries and take full advantage of unexpected opportunities. Taking the opposite view or making changes in your life will not be as disruptive as it sometimes can. You will find new ways of doing things that can lead to greater efficiency.
The Fixed Stars
New Moon July 2021 is in the Sign of Cancer. But as the star map below shows, it is in the Constellation of Gemini. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.
Gemini is said to cause trouble and disgrace, sickness, loss of fortune, affliction, and danger to the knees.  But it also portends intense devotion, genius, the largeness of mind, goodness, and liberality. 
The Gemini produces a generous and chaste personality. Individuals excelling in games and fond of philosophy and astronomy are also indicative of Gemini, as are also those who are magnanimous, munificent, and (sometimes) violent. Modern astrologers attribute the following to the Gemini: clever, intuitive, restless, heartless, undependable, inquisitive, lack of perseverance, and sometimes too clever. 
Fixed Star Wasat
Fixed star Wasat at 18°48′ Cancer is of the nature of Saturn. It gives violence, malevolence, destructiveness as a first principle, and is connected with chemicals, poisons, and gas. 
The Saturnine weight to Wasat helps account for the heaviness and tendency to pessimism found in people with 18 – 20° of Cancer Sign active in their charts. Apart from that, however, Wasat does show up a quality of being able to speak with clear authority when others are waffling and prominence in public affairs or management is often the result. 
The name Wasat comes from the Arabic Al Wasat, the Middle. This star which joins the twins in the middle is associated with partnership and compromise, but also separation. It helps build bridges, forms alliances, and treaties, and leads to peace more than war.
New Moon July 2021 Summary
The July 9 new moon does pose some problems related to love and money because of the difficult aspects to Venus. Fixed star Wasat with its Saturn also has a depressing and destructive influence. The keys to working with this star are partnership and compromise, very much the same as working with a challenged Venus.
Another big help in avoided or overcoming any problems posed by the challenging nature of new moon July 2021 is the sextile to Uranus. Increased intuition and insight can help you avoid potential problems. Unexpected opportunities and willingness to change can help overcome any setbacks.
The influence of the July 9 new moon lasts for four weeks up to the August 8 new moon. The best time for starting new projects is during the waxing phase of the moon, from July 9 up to the July 23 full moon.
