NewMoon Notes and Stages of the Moon
This month I am going to note the highlights of the NewMoon chart, and let my readers think about how they might make the interpretations. Meditate on these clusters of Trumps and place them into your birth chart to see how these transits might be affecting you.
NewMoon conjunct Mars in late Gemini: Priestess and Fool with Strength in the realm of the Chariot. Mercury (The Star) is also in the his natural home of Gemini, at the beginning of the sign, after having completed his retrograde.
Venus approaching Jupiter in mid-Leo: Empress and Emperor in the realm of the Hermit. Jupiter is trine Uranus, therefore the Magus in the realm of the Hierophant is supporting and assisting the Emperor’s progress through the Hermit’s land. The Empress will soon catch up and join the trine.
Retrograding Saturn has now backed into Scorpio again, forcing us to retrace our steps and re-address considerations that we had hoped were over and done with. Judgement is retreating from the sign of The Devil (Sagittarius) to re-enter the realm of Temperance (Scorpio).
Uranus entering into the final decanate of Aries: The Magus moving through the realm of The Hierophant.
Neptune retrograde in Pisces: Death moving through the realm of the Sun. (Interestingly, Trump #19 shows Apollo preparing to take his lyre into the realm of the dead, to awaken the sleepers for a fresh incarnation.)
Pluto retrograde in Capricorn: The World in the sign of The Tower. Pluto is making a wide square with Uranus (Magus) and a loose quincunx with Jupiter (Emperor), resulting in a Philosophical or Harmonic Grand Trine (composed of a square, a trine, and an inconjunct).
With all this under your belt, have a great Summer Solstice, and don't forget to get yourself a copy of The Tarot of the Holy Light; A Continental Esoteric Tarot.
