Late Wednesday July 15 there is a rather powerful New Moon in Cancer at 23+ degrees. It will be at 9:24 PM EDT. Included in the signature of that New Moon is Uranus in Aries squaring that Full Moon. More transformational energy is coming our way.
Additionally Mars in Cancer will be opposing “guardian of the underworld” Pluto. So much emotionally transformational energy will be rising up to the surface surrounding that New Moon date.
For many that emotional energy will be expressed in ways one will intellectually not expect. Pent up feelings will be difficult to hold back. Also keep in mind that the Mars opposition to Pluto will be triggering the Uranus/Pluto square in a very powerful way.
Many people recently have had their primary relationships challenged in serious ways. That Jupiter/Venus conjunction in Leo in early July, along with all the other important recent planetary movements, opened our hearts to knowing who and what we love and are into. That has stirred up many relationship pots, so to speak, and forced us all to get more real about heart issues.
That Jupiter/Venus conjunction was seen in the sky by many as two planets having merged into one planet, as the conjunction was so close.
Some have speculated that that merging of Jupiter and Venus last happened when the wise men saw a star in the sky that foretold the birth of Jesus.
So this aspect was especially important, and on August 4 Jupiter and Venus will be conjunct again, though not fully merged again. This is happening again because Venus is going Retrograde on July 25.
Right now there are many relationships that are ending or are being questioned. Others are being born in Love.
Venus Retrograde, which will last until September 6, will bring all of us into deeper places in understanding our relationships and our relationship patterns. This is a most important Venus Retrograde time period as it will put our relationships in proper perspective based on who are hearts are truly “into” and who they are not “into”.
This clearing of the decks of our relationships will be preparing us for a most profound and important Eclipse Season in September: a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13 and a Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Full Moon in Aries on September 27.
I expect that time period to be opening a major portal of new energies for a new age pouring in.
These new energies will meet up both collectively and individually with any blocks we have in our systems that will hold back the tide of these new energies.
And most importantly one’s heart will need to be open to receive these energies. So you will be more and more assisted in knowing what and whom are truly in your heart.
But now this week there is a completion of what was started at the Gemini New Moon on June 16.
That is because there is a “dark Moon” until Thursday July 16, when a sliver of Moon will begin to show after the New Moon on the 15th.
Many issues will be wanting to be worked out before Thursday’s New Moon new beginnings, but those that are not yet worked out will tend to be emotionally opened up more around this New Moon in emotional Cancer.
In the greater world, there are two important issues that are scheduled to be resolved before the New Moon in Cancer: the Greek financial deal and the Iran nuclear deal. As I am writing this, both deals have deadlines that are to be met before the New Moon in Cancer on the 15th.
Will European powers make a deal with Greece in order to keep it in the European Union and to keep the economy stable?
And will world powers make a deal with Iran that is meant to make the Middle East more peaceful?
But will a bailout deal of Greece’s debt really make all OK? Past bailouts have always ended up with Greece in default. This new deal, if it happens, does not give much promise for Greece to pay its debt this time either.
Concerning the nuclear deal with Iran, getting a deal done will not be the end of the process. USA Congress and its hardliners, and Iranian hardliners, and Israel will all react to the deal unfavorably. What then happens is unknown.
But in the bigger picture the Greece deal and the Iran deal or no deal will have a great effect on the Military/Economic structure that holds up the old paradigm. That paradigm is ending and so our economic and military systems are being transformed.
Speaking of the military establishment, Jade Helm 15 is scheduled to begin on July 15 at the New Moon in Cancer. This vast military exercise will be held in the 4 corners desert states of the USA, so are likely connected to potential military involvement in the mainly desert area of the Middle East.
Their starting on this powerful New Moon is most certainly meaningful as the Mars opposite “guardian of the underworld” Pluto aspect that day suggests potential explosive energies released and deep secrets being held.
In your personal life this Mars/Pluto aspect on the New Moon in Cancer is a most important day to express your truth in a powerful manner. Open your heart to express what you truly feel down deep. Though it could be difficult, it will result in your having made real what has been in your personal secret underworld up til then.
And you will experience a cathartic release that will bring you much relief and a feeling of renewal.
Leading up to that New Moon, during the dark Moon phase of the lunar cycle, there will be on Sunday July 12 another triggering of the Uranus/Pluto square. That triggering happens because the Sun will be squaring Uranus that day.
That will tend to take you “outside the box”, awaken you to the truth, and liberate your heart.
There will then be breakthroughs on issues that seemed so stuck before, and you will thus be more ready to move forward at the New Moon on July 15.
All in all this should be an emotionally volatile week, one that will help you clean out old stuck heart energies and make you more open to the new energies on their way soon.
Relationship issues will continue to be in the spotlight of our lives, as we all get ready for Venus going retrograde soon.
Till next week,
