This months New Moon will be on July 4th, at 12 degrees of Cancer. It is an especially lovely New Moon, with 6 out of the 10 planets in the Water signs, forming beautiful Trines to each other. Let’s take a look at it.
Neptune is currently at 12 degrees of Pisces, so the first aspect we want to focus on is the trine from the Sun and the Moon to Neptune. Neptune represents Divine Love, dreams, visions, and increased psychic ability. It represents the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. This trine in the Water Signs, which are about feelings and emotions, is both uplifting and exalting. Meditation and visualization work well with this aspect, and can feel effortless. At the same time, Venus, the planet of love, creativity, and fun, is conjunct the New Moon, at 19 degrees of Cancer, adding to the beauty of the trine to Neptune. Mercury, the planet of communication, is at 8 degrees of Cancer, also adding to that trine. So we have the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus all trine to Neptune. This is incredible for manifesting our hopes, our dreams, our vision for our lives. New Moons are about new beginnings. This group of planets is inspirational.
At the same time, Pluto, the alchemical planet, is at 16 degrees of Capricorn. It is opposite the New Moon. This is an aspect of release. What have we outgrown? What are we ready to let go of? What are we ready to give birth to? Endings and beginnings, one door closes as another door opens. Pluto is making a positive trine aspect to Jupiter, which is at 17 degrees of Virgo. Jupiter is the planet of blessings, growth, abundance, and Sacred Law. Justice. This trine aspect also supports the New Moon, as Jupiter sextiles the New Moon. Our affirmation might be: ” I fully and freely release all old soul patterns, people, and situations that are not for my highest good. I release them joyfully, and am made whole. All that is mine by Divine Right now comes to me. It flows in in rivers of abundance. In rivers of love. In rivers of beauty. I am blessed. I walk in gratitude and peace as my dreams are manifested now.”
This New Moon is a wonderful opportunity, soft, yet powerful. Visionary, yet alchemical. Mystical, yet transformational. It is one of the most beautiful New Moons I have ever seen. It bridges the Root Chakra, ( The Moon) Solar Plexus Chakra, ( The Sun) Heart Chakra, ( Venus) Throat Chakra, ( Mercury ), Third Eye and Crown Chakras ( Neptune). It also connects the Second Chakra ( Mars), which, at 23 degrees of Scorpio, Trines Venus, sextiles Jupiter and Pluto, giving energy and thrust to our ability to move forward. So, all 7 Chakras are positively impacted by this. Amazing.
Ride the cosmic wave of energy this New Moon offers us. It is so beautiful. I love that it falls on the 4th of July, Independence Day, for two reasons. One, most people have a holiday, and can take some time to work with this energy. And two, I love the concept of freedom, on a soul level. This New Moon is about freedom… Freedom from old patterns. Freedom from the past. Freedom from fear. Freedom to dream. Freedom to fly. Freedom to be who we came here to be. May it support your journey. Blessings, Judith
