New Moon at the end of July. 2011

New Moon end of July. 2011

This month's second New Moon occurs on July 31, 2011, 3:39 JST (all the timing in this article is to be calculated in JST) at the 8th degree of Leo. And this month, the Full Moon occurs with Aquarius Moon opposing Leo Sun, so we had better be aware of the themes of Air-Fire polarity. Both signs belong to masculine signs and are oriented toward something new to be brought about. Both also belong to fixed signs so the pace of development might be slow and steady. Imagining the Moon as a container and the Sun as energy to fill it, we have Leo's creative let-me-lead-an-organization energy to fulfill collective urge of the container that might say you-have-to-respect-uniqueness-of-everyone-else during this Moon month (especially around the Full Moon). It is not constructive if you get too pushy and showy about your own self-expression to disrupt humanistic networking 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 Uranus on 7/28. Then the Sun will make contact with Jupiter on 8/1. So themes of those two planets will be prominent in this month's leadership activities. Uranus and Jupiter both symbolizes freedom, so the contention might include how some kind of freedom is brought about, enhanced, or managed aptly.

After touching Jupiter on 8/1, the Sun will make contact with Saturn on 8/5, with Venus and Mercury on 8/16 and 17, with Neptune on 8/23 and with Pluto on 8/29 right before the next New Moon. Many scenario can be thought from these planetary movements and I would like to present an example to put them into a concrete image. Leadership will make things happen with some effort with some administrative approach around 8/5, and then around 8/16 - 17, will try to come up with new idea to idealize the situation and will express and pursue the ideal around 8/23 through 8/29 while stimulating atmosphere shared by people which might cause new dream or anxiety.

Aspects among the rest of the planets

There is no important aspect of note among outer planets for this Moon month. But the cardinal climax T square is triggered by Mars in the course of this month. It is what we have talked about as echoes and the last of the series. In a sense, we were experiencing series of waves leading to awareness for need to change social structure.

The first inner planet to look at is Mercury, which goes retrograde right after the New Moon on 8/3 until 8/27. While traveling backward, Mercury touches Mars on 8/5, Neptune on 8/8, the Sun on 8/17. Communications which Mercury correlates with most will align with ideal and its expression, which is going to help leader make another new plan or revise current approach. This formation of new plan has some flavor of idealism, so we have to think a lot about plausibility of the plan.

Next let's look at what Venus is up to. Venus makes contact with Jupiter and Saturn on 8/5 and on 8/8. Around this time period, people will tend to feel how organizational system or structure is working, its optimistic future image or practical defects. And then on 8/16-17, Venus will touch the Sun and Mercury successively. A new alliance might be formed in order to support and conceive plans for leadership of every level. And from 8/21 to 8/26, Venus travels from Neptune to Pluto and might feel cravings to make dreams come true.

So next, we talk about the action department Mars. Mars touches Neptune on 8/3, Mercury on 8/5, Uranus and Pluto on 8/10 and 11, Jupiter on 8/19 and Saturn on 8/25. This movement is correlated with the triggering of cardinal climax T square we talked about the the beginning of this section. Especially, from 8/10 on. So at first, people at the places where real actions are going on might feel strong idealism or disillusionment which motivates them to protest against organizational systems or orders.

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 Mercury. Mercury changes its direction to retrograde on 8/3 and changes back to direct on 8/27. Mercury is related to our faculty to think and communicate. When retrograding, we tend to think and communicate about things past or personal, subjective, which makes ordinary communication between people little harder to get through than usual, tending to cause mis-understandings or mis-leadings.

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, planets which change it's sign, among the planets which travel slower than the earth, are Mars and Neptune. Mars will ingress from Gemini to Cancer on 8/3. The application of energy will tend more toward building emotional security than talking about alternatives. Neptune is now moving backward and ingress back into Aquarius from Pisces. When the Neptune moved into Pisces, people tend to worry about things invisible and hidden. This tendency might be somewhat ameliorated and people might regain expectation that technology and communication will contribute to social opinions.

During this Moon month, keeping the points I have raised above, let's try to use our Leo Sun's let-me-lead-my-kingdom energy to mix nicely with it's-not-yours-because-it's-everybody's needs of Aquarius Moon of this month. It should be interesting to observe those symbols reflected in the real socio-situations in the world.
