NEW MOON APRIL 2012 - USA
DATA: April 21, 2012 @ 3:20 A.M. -
Aquarius Rises, co-ruler Saturn retrograde in Libra in the 8th house of debt, co-ruler Uranus in Aries in the 2nd house of the nation's financial state. The New Moon is in Taurus, sign of wealth, treasuries, banking, money...in the 2nd house, on the 2nd degree. This is a degree of impotence, a degree meaning any vital force that does not find a proper outlet will cease to flow. The New Moon partakes of an Earth Grand Trine, with Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn. Trines describe patterns of luck, right? Easy come, easy go? On the other hand - there is always an other hand - a subtle drawback with this pattern is a failure to develop and exercise the psychological muscles required to meet and effectively resolve major life crises head-on. An Earth Grand Trine seeks to preserve the status quo of existing conditions, both element and aspect not responding well to drastic, critical changes in affairs.
Looking at the positive side of this pattern, there is an abundance of opportunities to attract, accumulate, and skillfully mange resources coupled with a remarkable endurance and persistence that encourages the ability to work long and hard towards valued accomplishment.
As the New Moon is disposited by 4th house Venus in Gemini, as is Jupiter in Taurus, ruler of the 10th house (head of state) and taking into consideration past activities of the country's leader, it is more likely that playfulness (Venus in Gemini) will be the manner in which these energies are to be expended.
