New Moon 17 July 2023: T’d-Off


Don’t take a look at the place these arrows are touchdown, take a look at who’s taking pictures them. Sagittarius Climate Vane on the American People Artwork Museum, NYC {{PD}}

The Solar and Moon meet in Most cancers, as they do as soon as (hardly ever, twice) yearly, at 11:31 AM PDT of the seventeenth at 24 Most cancers 56, and this time type some tense, T-square power throughout the Solar-Earth axis with Eris, a sq. to which is the following side each Sol and Luna will good. Eris is usually blamed for creating strife, however I see her extra as bringing to the floor already extant tensions–she has the character of a catalyst, facilitating the interplay of different elements. Eris will get blamed for inflicting bother as a result of nobody needs to personal one thing they’ve labored laborious to disregard–and meaning there could also be plenty of finger-pointing (or worse, sotto voce insinuations), all within the identify of denial. Wherever the climate vane is pointing, look again within the route that wind is coming from–that may let you know far more than will fixating on the route it’s touring.

What’s extra, we’re speaking about Cardinal energies, and meaning stresses will immediate motion–and it’s possible these selections gained’t have been totally thought of, there’ll be such stress to do one thing about ‘it’, with the stress to behave coming as a lot from inside us as from externals. Vesta semi-square the New Moon says our personal highest values and deepest commitments would require we act. A technique, although, to assist us decide how correct and/ or efficient these impromptu strikes is perhaps is by inspecting what the Solar and Moon contacted simply earlier than their assembly (illustrating the time main as much as the New Moon) and what every will contact simply after, earlier than both leaves the signal of Most cancers.

Each sextiled Uranus, and virtually concurrently squared Zeus. That implies our attentions have been on deep needs, our passions stirred by need and ambition (and in each situations, these have our consideration as a result of we don’t have achievement there–the sq.) and shock, shock, a way of rebel or revolution, sudden consciousness or data gleaned by Larger Thoughts, or the impact of the group on particular person autonomy or originality, determine in to the situation that leads us as much as the ‘now’ of the New Moon.

And what springs from the inception level of the New Moon, from the seminal energies of emotion, what we care about, what we nurture, ‘mom’, shield? Out of the stress of the Lunar occasion we see an infinite artistic, imaginative, or spiritually-infused burst (trine to Neptune) and simply after that, a situation the place we should select, involving elimination, destruction, or transformation of a side of surrounding constructions, guidelines, disciplines, or frameworks upon which we’ve got been reliant (opposition to Pluto in Capricorn–and be aware this happens within the twenty ninth diploma, suggesting the alternatives we must make, even be pressured to make, will in themselves be nerve-racking).

The Sabian for the New Moon is, ‘A Willful Man Is Overshadowed By A Descent Of Superior Energy’. That’s Cardinal power, all proper, describing a extremely Arian type of Being–and Mars on the time of the NM might be in Virgo, simply shifting out of conjunction with Pallas, telling of a latest level the place we asserted ourselves primarily based upon what was smart or sensible–with the ruler of Mars, Mercury, in Leo, so dominated by the Solar, which is dominated by and conjoined the Moon, main us again to the Lunar image. So, the motion we took then, or alternative we made, is integral to the New Moon occasion–and sure affecting us far more emotionally than we understand (or care to confess). However, the picture declares that no matter method wherein we’ve made our Will recognized, by the New Moon, might be overtaken by a bigger, stronger pressure–which suggests one thing in regards to the Lunar occasion will present us not every part is inside our energy, below our management, or topic to our Will. A lesson in limits and modesty, that may serve our artistic and transformative efforts that comply with.
