NEW MOON Celebrates Jupiter in LEO!
July 26 at 3:42 PM Pacific! It’s at 3 Leo 52
See FULL Moon
This will be a grand New Moon, 2nd of three in a row, with the newly minted Jupiter in LEO! Mars has newly joined Saturn in Scorpio as of July 25, the day before! New beginnings are here, and we’re not used to the changes yet, but probably not minding them either. Jupiter is in Leo only once every 12 years, and Mars has had a long 7 month stint in Libra, so many are delighted to move along!
The Sun squared Mars Friday the 18th, so that hot challenge is behind us. The Moon squared Mars, maybe dramatically, 8:29 AM, just hours before the afternoon New Moon. Sometimes that square brings rousing feelings and misadventures. Be careful with knives, fire, or sex :) in the kitchen! It won’t be a morning for sleeping in either! These aspects preceding the New Moon will be motivators for our intentions and planning. We want more vitality, directed potently, safely. We want to let go ofpastperjuries, hurtful attitudes. Time to clear the deck,upleval our reasoning, exceed our ancestors. Perspective means so much. The education adventure is a big part of the answers.
Building trust, finding faith, courting loving joy are teasers and treasures worth the gamble. Travel about, widen your vision, open your heart. Volunteer to get places you want to go. Listen with big ears, share your story – the true deep one that makes you who you are. But also, no revealing what’s not yours to tell when it involves others.
Backdrop for this New Moon is the 1 degree Saturn, Uranus, Chiron set. Saturn made a very close 8 minutes (of space) inconjunct with Uranus the day before the Sun entered LEO, July 21! They whispered to each other. Though incompatible planets, they are in Mars signs, Aries and Scorpio, so have a guarded, careful camaraderie. Saturn favors a working routine, while Uranus is a born rule breaker! Uranus is in Aries, the upstart and innovator, while Scorpio subtly brings the Lamb to bay, seducing it toward the goal it wants to share. The lamb may be coy, but Scorpio and Saturn are astute at waiting for those perfect moments of capture. Working together could be outstandingly powerful as the old fuddy-duddies tap the excitement of stunning changes!
Saturn, the Master Guide, is also trine Chiron in Pisces, the Healer. Saturn wants to see the vision well done, the very best. Chiron in Pisces knows where the fault lines are, and how to bridge the gaps, fill the Spirit. Saturn helps Chiron focus, while Chiron has insights that take them both to new heights. Relationships can be profound and long lasting.
Aug 1 Venus in Cancer moves in to complete the Grand Water Trine (blue) with Saturn and Chiron! Their work together is blessed, made beautiful and attractive. The value there is nurtured. Grace and a feminine touch buffers any rough edges. Projects emphasized by the New Moon, and of its nature, will bear fruit. Family matters may sync up. This time what your Mother says/said will likely work sweetly!
FULL RED SUPERMOON!
August 10 at 11:09 AM Pacific – 18 Aquarius 02
Second of three-in-a-row SuperMoons! Bigger and brighter! Appears red through ‘any sultry haze.’
Moon Aquarius and Sun LEO have been kindly kissed and zapped by Uranus, the planet of Aquarius! Many people read the Moon as our past, but Uranus is a planet of the future’s Future! Nothing old or slow about it! Yet Mama Moon is her family’s protector and nurturer, usually conservative. So some blending here, like the new kitchen gadget that saves time and does a good job. That’s ok. LEO enjoys the show, especially if that smoothie is for them!
Another little item is the matter of detachment. Aquarius/Uranus is cool to remote at times. LEO wants justifiable attention, Cancer can’t have you just running off from home. Wait! Wait! Yet there are times home is overwhelming and a getaway is just the right thing to do. And there are times the Lion just has to fend for themselves, besides, fans can be so tiresome…. Just relax and go to the spa. Getting some distance gives you time to just be yourself, think, let go of expectations, refresh.
Uranus in Aries just spritzes and showers Light like a firecracker sparkler! It’s a Light show with a 1000 ideas a second! Excited and infused with this wakes up our synapses and wrinkles the laundry! Gives Zig Zag new meaning! Record your insights, some of them are Divine and in spite of perceived crazy diversity, may clump together with unheard of results!
The Full Moon axis is restrained by Saturn! It was just in an exact serious TSquare, 90 degrees of challenge! The Sun squared Saturn a tiring week’s worth, Aug 3 to Friday the 9th. Either we are worn down and not careful, or defenses are worn down enough so we can finally hear! Moon squared Saturn just 1 1/2 hours before our Full Moon, oh so sadly reminding us of the challenges and likely unfinished business. Even though we are frustrated with being careful, minding our manners is a must, otherwise, there will be a price to pay. Respect is a necessity. Offenses add up. Being flippant or unempathetic about someone else’s feelings may become a scene with painful results. A good laugh with love could be carefully done, and relieve the tension. But do stand up if there is abuse. Get help if you can’t do it alone.
The New Moon Saturn inconjunct Uranus, trine Chiron backdrop is fading but not forgotten! Saturn has been doing its best to harness those Uranian kilowatts! But as we all know, some things just weren’t meant to be completely harnessed. There is always an escapee here or there. Serious Chiron healing has occurred. Saturn has used time well and we are seeing results after all even when we thought we screwed up. Work and business have solid options. Relationships are stabilizing. Health is being tracked with steady improvement likely, or letting go when that time has come.
August 14, the Jupiter inconjunct Neptune is exact. This chart helps illuminate that awareness. Each is going for the far reaches of existence! Jupiter in Leo takes the big journey; Neptune in its own sign Pisces goes as far as the Soul can perceive. They are believers of magnitude. The LEO heart loves its way even when there is great disparity, an unlikely companion, against the odds. Leo’s gift to teach takes others with them on this huge journey of the exploration of the Tree of Life. Pisces knows when it sees a worn out traveler and gathers them to the feet of God and the Angels, leads them to the meditation Ashram to rest and recenter. The Visions are another journey of inspiration, often a lifetime’s worth! As knowledge is gained, adjustments keep us on the spicy course, at the leading edge of Creation!
