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!
