The July 4th new moon in Can­cer brings a happy bal­ance with the na­tal chart of the United States. This can make an astrologer smile. When the U.S. was born on July 4, 1776, the sun was in Can­cer, and this year the new moon falls on the same day, as well as in a 9 year (2+ 0 + 1 + 6). It’s the United States’ 240th birthday, mak­ing this a sure in­di­ca­tion that new things are in store for the coun­try this year, in­clud­ing the elec­tion of a new pres­i­dent.

The July 19th full moon in Capri­corn brings dis­rup­tion from the Uranus-in-Aries square. Since 2010 Uranus has been rather a bully, forc­ing us to move into new di­rec­tions, ready or not. This full moon brings in a double square—sun, moon, Uranus—in­di­cat­ing a pushy and dis­turb­ing en­ergy that makes travel plans and/or com­plet­ing any­thing dif­fi­cult.

The Au­gust 2nd new moon in Leo brings a time to push along or com­plete a pro­ject. This strength­en­ing en­ergy will get you back on track. There’s vi­tal­ized en­ergy to spare when you take to heart this ce­les­tial sig­nal that it’s cer­tainly time for new beginnings. Know that what­ever you set aside last March, it’s time to pick it up and run with it again.

The Au­gust 18th full moon in Aquarius brings a new, ex­cit­ing en­ergy and fresh per­spec­tive. This full moon adds charm and mag­netism to your deal­ings with any­one, from your lover to your boss, to your banker!
