NEW MOON AUGUST 2013 - USA
DATA: August 6, 2013 @ 5:52 PM EDT -
The August New Moon occurs in the sign Leo and falls into the 7th house of allies, public enemies and foreign affairs. The activity will be about starting something new concerning foreign affairs.
A Leo lunation speaks to not taking unnecessary risks with investments. Of prominence these next weeks will be all places where entertainment or recreation is carried on...sports arenas, amusement parks...and headlines containing news of children.
The closest aspect involving the New Moon is a trine to retrograde Uranus in Aries in the 3rd house, setting the theme for the weeks ahead...earthquakes, tornadoes, volcano eruptions, airplane crashes, severe changes in weather conditions. All 3rd house matters (upsetting) to the fore: communications (internet, post office, telephone)...trains, planes, buses, automobiles, trucks...in short, everything to do with transportation.
Of importance: the 7th house conjunction of Mars and Jupiter in Cancer opposing 1st house Pluto in Capricorn. We can expect from this energy military campaigns (
intense power struggles, and an absence of neutrality...there is no room for
compromise. Toss Uranus in the mix as
the Apex of a T-Square and the result is sudden and radical disruption of the
current status quo.
In the USA chart the lunation falls into the 8th house placing focus on financial affairs with the nation's 7th house allies and/or enemies, on the U.S. Treasury, shared resources, national debt, credit and the corrupt Federal Reserve.
Transiting Jupiter, ruler of embassies, occupies the 7th house in opposition to transiting Pluto = fanatical justice with regard to foreign embassies...not a surprise that Washington announced on August 2nd it would close an unspecified number of embassies around the world on Sunday due to security concerns.
Transiting retrograde Uranus is still in orb of square to natal Sun; he who occupies the white house continues the stupendous error of his ways, further damaging the country. The tally will be obvious by April, 2014 when Uranus in direct motion reaches exact square.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death.
