New Moon July. 2011

New Moon July. 2011

This month's New Moon occurs on July 1, 2011, 17:53 JST (all the timing in this article is to be calculated in JST) at the 10th degree of Cancer. And this month, the Full Moon occurs with Capricorn Moon opposing Cancer Sun, so we had better be aware of the themes of Earth-Water polarity. Both signs belong to feminine signs and are oriented toward preserving the status quo and refining it. Both also belong to cardinal signs so the pace of development might be quick and moving. Imagining the Moon as a container and the Sun as energy to fill it, we have Cancer's sharing-emotion-to-establish-security-energy to fulfill collective urge of the container to control-to-be-useful-among-people during this Moon month (especially around the Full Moon). It is not constructive if you get too emotional and security oriented to disrupt getting things done atmosphere that everyone has in general. Let's see what's going on in the world with these points of view in mind for this Moon month.

Aspects to the Sun

Right before this New Moon, the Sun touched Neptune, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto successively from 6/22 to 6/28. Last month, we have talked about "a radical change in the course of leadership or protest toward leaders to change". The change might be materialized after this New Moon when the Sun touches Saturn or the materialization of change itself might become the main theme of this New Moon month. For example, leaders of Gunma prefecture and Thailand are to be elected on 7/3. A leader might face severe public agenda around this time, too.

After touching Saturn on 7/3, the Sun will not make major aspect until 7/28 when it makes contact with Uranus. Especially since there will be no aspect (except for Moon) until the Sun changes its sign from Cancer to Leo on 7/23, which is called in special term as "void" meaning nothing prominent related to the planet happens during the period. If the planet is the Sun representing leadership, it might suggest a situation in which the leader can not exert it's leadership effectively or contrarily, people cannot persuade or talk leader into some sort of movement during the period. So the above mentioned knuck that "don't get too emotional and security oriented or you would disrupt getting things done atmosphere people at large share". The last aspect in this Moon month is this harmonious contact with Uranus, and leaders might feel his/her opinion is supported well.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There is an important aspect of note among outer planets for this Moon month. It is Pluto and Jupiter cooperating harmoniously, which is exactly formed on 7/7. Jupiter is related to optimistic future vision and Pluto is concerned with perspective which should be shared with people. So when those two cooperate, strong formation of optimistic future vision, persuasion of philosophy or social perspective are to be pursued.

The first inner planet to look at is Venus, which go through very interesting movement right after the New Moon. It is the third echo of the pattern, first generated by Mercury from 6/17 to 6/22, then succeeded by the Sun from 6/22 to 7/3 and then this Venus from 7/5 to 7/13. That is that every planet contacts Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn successively (order is a little bit different). So it could be some relation between those periods like former causing response in latter periods. Venus is a feeling planet so there are various feeling concerning social practice during this period and finally reach to a certain conclusion at last (feeling decided) when the Venus touches Saturn.

Next let's look at what Mercury is up to. After going through the apex point of cardinal climax last month, Mercury reaches to the next sign to touch the same planets with different angle. It is interesting to note that this coincides with Venus going through the cardinal climax planets. Specifically, Mercury touches Uranus (7/5), Jupiter (7/6) and Saturn (7/9). With the accumulating experience and information, people would develop different look at the changing system and come up with creative solutions to stalemated and drudging issues.

So next, we talk about the action department Mars. Mars makes only 2 major aspects this month, with Saturn on 7/6 and with Mercury on 7/12. This harmonious aspect with Saturn is formed within within a crowded cluster of aspects especially after the Sun formed conflicting aspect on 7/3. The story might go like a leader demands or is demanded by people a harsh agenda and people are busy responding to the outcome for a week or so. With Jupiter and Pluto contacting at the same time, there are a lot of opinion formation and reformation go around at the time and finally some kind of proposition or plan might be put forward when Mars touches Mercury.

Planets which change direction or sign

Planets other than Sun and Moon sometimes change their direction of apparent movement seen from the earth. When a planet changes its direction, it moves slowly and may leave its mark on various social events in the world. Within this Moon month, the planets changing their directions are Uranus, which changes its direction to retrograde on 7/10. Uranus relates to intensifying attention at the present situation, which may have caused by sudden change or needs to listen to various people's opinion. Change from direct to retrograde could correlate change from ideal, public and future-oriented to real, private and past-oriented.

And planets, especially those that move slowly, change their signs in sync with shifts in corresponding profile of social or collective psychology. Within this Moon month, among the planets which travel slower than the earth, there is no planet which change it's sign.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to use our Cancer Sun's share-emotion-and-feel-secure energy to mix nicely with getting-things-done-for-society needs of Capricorn Moon of this month. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
