Recently we had a New Moon in the Goat sign and soon we will have a Full Moon in the Ox. The most recent moon is still being felt. A dark, dead New Moon in the Goat on June 23rd passed through some extreme patterns like tread marks. Our lunar lady was joined by the Sun, Mercury as they rolled over on Mars making for a cliff hanger of an ending.
The New Moon followed the Summer Solstice on June 21st. Why is this a dead moon? The Sun past its yearly reached a peak of luminescence in visibility and then begin a decline. This decline increased the dead side or what is called after-life of the moon. This happened before the moon started a new cycle. The lunar aspect was in the dead zone after the sun peaked.
Each cycle is different in it’s light and dark elements. This particular new moon was dead as it become completely yin (extreme dark-dead) until sunset. In other words it went dark -when it got dark. This produced a double dark, yin energy. Challenging and empowering for the feminine due to abrasive contact.
This Double Yin energy is unique and not common with all new moons. It occupies the place called the VOID in a pure way. Everything made manifest before your eyes comes from this place, the void. What we see, hear and experience in our outer realm is the ticker tape (read out) of everything that already-is in the existence of this inner realm. Once we see an experience it has happened in the time continuum and it is being displayed or projected in the external context of our understanding.
This extra shroud of darkness gives everyone is a stargazers delight and after the grumpy old goat moon goes all-yin it returns to a sliver of a silvery crescent to begin it’s transit through its cycles of change. The July full moon rises full just after sunset on the 8th and it marks a 30 day pre-Ecliptic point to a Partial Lunar eclipse on August 7th. Whatever crops up at that time could grow to a quick resolution or fail in an instant.
The new moon cycle move toward a Full Moon in the Ox sign July 8th. As full moon’s go this is one tough buffalo. Camped with Pluto on the Ascendant it’s tough customer that needs a remedy. Saturn holds court over unresolved issues but not in a traditional sense. The New Rat Moon and coming Full Moon are a tandem team but timing is awkward. Image concerns crop up to tip the scales and shift the balance of power.
Jupiter holds a top spot at the crown of the chart for two Moons in a row. This energy has proven unstable. It’s tilting windmills to battle ghosts and chase shadows while ignoring the elephant in the room. It appears to have a bone to pick and an axe to grind and perhaps it needs a cooling off period.
The coming Full Moon has the node (key) on the back of the chart as Mercury slides into the Monkey sign. The magical and clever monkey is a key master of pomp and circumstance so expect quite a good show. Monkey’s crack codes and solve a mysteries. This node is connected to a gifted trine in the Ruling Triad, with the Dragon and Rat sign.
Mercury enters the Monkey and will be a strong counterpoint to offset extreme conditions coming with the ecliptic patterns in August. Celestial chaos comes form is a partial lunar eclipse on August 7th and a total solar eclipse on August 21st. The total solar eclipse is being hyped around the world and it is worthy of this attention.
As the Part of Fortune, Mars and the Sun blaze trails past the Goat sign they are right out on the edge of the extreme neater regions. Goats are unique at finding footholds where there are none and the Monkey lingers on in an afterlife.
By the time the full cow moon arrives July 8th Venus steps into the Horse sign for a rodeo ride. Until then she remains exalted in the Serpent with full luxe to bring positive solutions to a desperate circumstances. If you get a good offer take it!
Uranus drags anchor on the bottom dregs of the cosmic ocean floor in the lofty Dragon. Deeply recessed in a cave the dragon can orchestrate a surprisingly high harmonic. Laser beams and silly strings of invisibility enchant pearls of wisdom out of their shells for a wider audience to be enlightened.
Chiron is a deep space planet transiting the Hare sign for quite some years now as it draws near to the Dragon’s border. This causes skirmishes resulting in scraps and bruises to ego’s and amigos. Planet Neptune, also in the Hare is bouncing backward in retrograde motion. This can improve notions and potions and extend research but it also has a separation side-effect that is disquieting. It will continue to swirl for awhile.
