Following the Moon: July 28, 2022GGAMoon

Since the chart for the Full Moon on July 13 featured Mars on the Descendant (click here to see the article and the chart) I had feared that we might have another mass shooting. We almost got one on July 17 in Indiana but the assailant was killed by an armed bystander. Unfortunately, the shooter had already killed three people. If we’re going to depend on “good guys” with guns to protect us from the crazies, that three to one ratio is something we need to keep in mind.

I was also concerned about the economic implications of Venus square Neptune in that chart. In retrospect, I should have paid more attention to the fact that Venus was also trine Saturn. Though we saw prices on just about everything increasing and heard talk about a coming recession during this lunation period, gas prices were actually dropping. Meanwhile, the placement of the Sun in the Ninth House, which rules both courts and broadcasting, brought us the last session of the Jan. 9 commission televised in prime time with more damning testamony about the behavior of former President Trump.

In some ways, the New Moon chart for July 28 (click on New Moon to see the chart) looks a lot like the July 13 chart. Again we have Mars in the Seventh House (but not on the angle) and the Sun (now along with the Moon) in the Ninth House. In other ways, however, it is a very different horoscope.

This first thing you notice about this New Moon chart is that both the Sun and Moon are trine natal Jupiter. I see this as an indicator of good news. That doesn’t mean that all our problems will be solved. However, we should, in some way, be given hope of solving, or at least alleviating, one or two of them. This could come to us through a decision in the courts or via the media.

Jupiter is also square Venus in this chart. In the July 13 chart we had Venus forming a hard aspect but there Venus was in the Eighth House which relates to finance. In this chart Venus is in the Ninth House with the Sun and Moon.. This by no means describes an end to inflation. It just indicates that inflation will cease to be our main concern, at least for a while.

The big question is, of course, what will that main concern be? This chart seems to be telling us that it will be something totally new and unexpected. We have Mercury in the Tenth House near the Midheaven. It forms a T-square with Saturn and Uranus. Though the opposition Mercury makes to Saturn is wide, the square to Uranus is nearly exact and Uranus is conjunct Mars, bringing the belligerent energy of that planet into the mix. To make all this even more interesting, Mars and Uranus are both conjunct the North Node of the Moon.

When we put all of this together, we seem to be looking at a sudden shift in our thinking. This might involve our leadership (since Mercury in in the 10th House) or our relationships abroad (Mars and Uranus in the Seventh). Violence is a possibility but I’m hoping that the presence of Saturn in this configuration will counter that. In any case, even though the general trend of this chart is positive, we have to expect to have our socks knocked off at least once by the information that emerges during the next two weeks.
