Following the Moon: Sept. 10, 2022

The drama I was expecting from the New Moon chart for Aug. 27 didn’t arrive until very late in the lunation period. (Click here to see the article and the chart.) Even though Queen Elizabeth was not a figure of political authority for people in the United States, she was a figure of moral authority around the world and her death was the kind of Uranian surprise that the New Moon chart predicted.

The other big surprise that came out that chart was the ruling by a federal judges ordering a “special master” to review the evidence taken from Mar-o-Lago by the FBI. The order also put a temporary hold on the examination of this material. The ruling was certainly important. It represents a victory for team Trump and adds more complications to this complicated affair. It was also, according to many legal experts, surprising.

The placement of Uranus in the Full Moon chart for Sept. 10 seems more benign. (Click on New Moon to see the chart.)  It is in the Ninth House sextile the Moon and trine the Sun. This could refer to breakthrough involving publications or information technology or maybe something coming out the American court system with which we all can agree. Wouldn’t that be a first?

There’s actually a lot of good news in this Full Moon Chart. We have Venus sitting on the Ascendant. Even though Venus is weak by sign, this is generally consider a positive indicator. The fact that Venus is quincunx Jupiter seems to add to this positive vibe. This might signal an end to what has been a summer of crazy weather, with heat waves, flooding and fires all across the country. It could also indicate that, instead of acts of violence, acts of kindness will dominate the news outlets.

As encouraging as this placement of Venus in the Full Moon chart is, it also presents us with reasons for concern. Venus is square Mars which is strongly placed in the Tenth House. Venus square Mars is an aspect of passion and, in the public sphere, passion can be a very dangerous commodity. People acting on their political, religious or social passions could put a loud and crashing halt to what otherwise might be a peaceful lunation period.

There are other positive indicators in this chart. The fact that the Sun is in the First House trine Uranus seems describe a sense of power and agency. Also, the ruler of the chart, Mercury, is opposed to Jupiter. This is also an indicator of optimism and expansive feelings. Of course, expansive feelings can sometimes get people into trouble and, since Mercury is in the Second House of money, the aspect to Jupiter could describe increased inflation.

Another factor that deserves mention is the square between Saturn and Uranus. This aspect has been with us since last year and, though it will never be exact this year, it will be within a degree from Sept. 16 to Oct. 24. This square has a lot to do with the partisanship that characterizes our politics and the fact that many people in this country still believe, despite all evidence to the contrary, that the 2020 election was rigged. As the Saturn to Uranus square tightens during the next few weeks these issues are likely to come to a head.

Despite these drawbacks,however, I’m hopeful that this chart will give us a lunation period that will be, on the whole, less fraught with shocks and bumps that the last couple. If nothing else, maybe the strong placement of Venus in this chart will give us a chance to appreciate what’s beautiful about this world instead of worrying about what’s not.
