July 14, 2007 New Moon

New Moon July 14, 2007

Hello. I’m dashing off some New Moon thoughts tonight as I get ready to leave town tomorrow (July 6). I will be spending a week in one of the most beautiful and magical places that I have ever visited: Diana’s Grove in Missouri. I will be one of three teachers presenting astrology at a week-long women’s retreat: Lunacy. For more information about the Grove and their Mystery School, visit their website:

I hope readers have had a chance to see the conjunction of Venus and Saturn that has been gracing the night sky these past few weeks. It perfected on July 1. However, when the waxing crescent Moon joins these two on July 16th, I think the sight will be even more beautiful. Venusian transits were highlights of the last lunar month. Mars takes his turn this month. The New Moon chart shows Mars square Chiron. Then on July 24 Mars will square Neptune and on July 31 Mars will square Saturn. Mars, the warrior, is in the Fixed Earth sign, Taurus. The Chiron square brings to mind the ways we will need to heal our relationship to the earth. Right on the heels of that transit, the Neptune square may bring a challenge around using our dreams to move us forward toward that healing. Then the hero visits Saturn, a final word with the Wise One: No more illusions, no more blame, how will you create lasting change?

On July 2, Venus will turn retrograde at the beginning of Virgo, another sign that encourages stewarding the earth. She then quickly moves back into Leo where she will again transit Saturn and Neptune next lunar month. These “minor” planets, Mars and Venus are working us to do something about our disillusionment. I believe they will encourage us to re-enchant the world. Will you fall in love again with beauty? Will you dare to take action on your hopes?

Jupiter will reach the end of his retrograde motion on August 6. Traveling through Sagittarius, the sign of the Archer. Jupiter moving backwards has been pulling back the arrow. Now, as he turns direct, where will you let that arrow fly? Where is the sign Sagittarius is your chart? Imagine sending an arrow of amazing possibility into that house of your chart.

As Sweet Honey in the Rock sing:
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Believe it!
