Current Configurations

The Last Quarter Moon of Sunday, August 5th (Last Quarter Moon Chart), traditionally represents a "crisis of consciousness" when the impulse from the preceding Cancer New Moon of mid-July finds its difficulty in coming completely into fruition, and awareness is thereby gained. This is of course the developmental stage that precedes the Leo New Moon of the following weekend, and comes as Venus is beginning to retrograde back into the first degree of Virgo. The station of Jupiter to direct motion, in Sagittarius, takes place on the 6th, bringing an optimistic tone to the proceedings at that time.

The Leo New Moon of Sunday August 12th (New Moon Chart) is a very powerful lunation, being opposed exactly to Neptune in Aquarius, and quincunx to Uranus in Pisces. These two outer planets remain in mutual reception, linking them to each other. There is a way that electrifying messages of Spirit illumine our path right now. Numinous energy for merger comes over our social impulse which may also have the effect of obscuring our sense of clarity in the moment. Since Saturn is also exactly conjunct retrograde Venus in late Leo at this time, as it trines Pluto, the energies of all the outer planets are invoked. And since Mercury is conjunct this New Moon, this is a time of renewed awareness of the fundamentally mystical nature of reality.

The First Quarter Moon of Monday, August 20th (First Quarter Moon Chart), is traditionally a time of a "crisis of action" when the impulse of the New Moon must find it's way through the necessities imposed by reality. Since this Quarter Moon exactly squares Saturn, this would be an entirely appropriate reading for the evolving situation. Saturn is about to change signs, moving into Virgo come September.

The Full Moon of Tuesday, August 28th (Full Moon Chart), is also a Lunar Eclipse, the first of a pair that will include next month's very potent September 11th New Moon. This Full Moon, in the 5th degree of Virgo and Pisces, squares both Mars in Gemini and Jupiter in Sagittarius, newly turned to direct motion, thus forming a Mutable Grand Cross. The Sabian Symbol for the Sun's degree, "a man dreaming of fairies" may presage miracles of new awareness. This is the full flowering of the impulse from the New Moon and we will learn from it.
