New Moon Phase: begin again; set intentions; make a wish

Moon in Cancer/Leo 12:29 pm ET/4:29 pm UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom):  Dhumavati, Goddess Who Sorts Things Out; Goddess Who Winnows

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Kathe, God of the South Direction

Skill: take action without hesitation

True Alignments:  brave, satisfaction, going ahead, open hearted, purposeful, taking position, the processes of development, forming structure, the resonance principle (like attracts like), little indulgences

Catalysts for Change:  close-minded, chasing, looking at the glass half empty, unreliable, instability, overdoing, irrational, powerlessness, fear of change, abandonment issues, lack of purpose

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a very old man facing a vast, dark space to the northeast" (enlightenment of what has been done in the dark, facing the unknown, facing the self, facing the truth, facing off, transforming darkness)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending the past, transcending the unraveling control paradigm, coming to a new world)

Today's report is abbreviated somewhat, as I will be recording the overview of the new lunar month later today.  Here are the highlights of what's in store for us this month:

1- out in the open - what has been done in the dark is brought to light

2- facing Off and Drawing the Line- we face all kinds of things: ourselves, the truth, reality and then draw lines (as in lines in the sand)

3- Russia

4- relationship issues solved or addressed (Grand Trine in water signs with Venus, Mars, and Chiron)

5- clarity about feelings, issues, and what we value

6- new endeavors or new ways of doing things supported; branching out

7- the voice of the people takes center stage

8- "the left" is activated (political left, left brain, leftists)

9- seeing right through things (deception, deeds, intentions)

10- relentless, resilient, strong

11- choices

12- divergence before convergence

13 - going against the norm (and one's own norm) and throwing things off our backs

14- an "initiation" of humanity into adulthood

15- double dealings, double crosses, double agents revealed

16- the winnowing or whittling down of things based on resonance or dissonance

We may feel in over our heads in some ways today, but this is a natural by-product of the shift into a new quarter or "season" on the Medicine Wheel.  Cancer is a cardinal sign, so it is a right turn in a new direction.  This is the first shift point since the astrological new year, the New Moon in Aries back on April 7th.  Things have been going one way and now evolve to a higher level.  The next shift comes with the Libra New Moon during October and the Capricorn New Moon during January.  These are the big turns during the year every year, so we want to be as flexible as possible right now.

But today is not a day to wait around on anything.  Venus is activating the energetic of "a young woman awaiting a sailboat."  Don't wait for a ship to come in.  Instead, carpe diem - seize the day!  The "vast dark space" of this month's energetic theme provides the Creative Void from which we can draw upon anything.  Aim high.
