The New Moon falls at 4 degrees Cancer on Sunday, June 25, at 9:05 am PDT. For the last week of June through July 24, expect a lot of cat-and-mouse games and internal and external arguments between points of view. One voice will argue that old ways still work, while others will be pressing for an acceptance on the emotional level to act on recent decisions resulting from fundamental reorientations.
Beware of sophistical circular justifications and rationalizations. Feelings will run high, and while many hunches will prove accurate, they must be followed by decisions and actions that lead to new visions, new information, and new perspectives. Beware of working off of obsolete information or old views that may not be accurate for what has transpired since then, or will be required in the near future.
Saturn is on the degree of transfiguration and relief at having "made it through the night," and Mars is on a degree of letting your Soul speak, so prepare to express your deepest and highest Soul-responses, Venus is on a degree of "Santa Claus filling stockings," indicating many will receive blessings for their innocence and faith, and the quintile to Mars shows there will be interpersonal gifts to and from those ruled by those planets and these areas in our charts these rule. Venus is also part of the Grand Irrationality due to its biseptile with Neptune and triseptile to Pluto, so whatever gifts and blessings we receive are part of the fork in the road of our destiny in some way.
This New Moon makes the Moon the final dispositor for every other planet, since the Moon rules Cancer, and all other planets are ruled by a planet that ultimately tracks back to the Moon. Expect Lunar affairs to dominate. The Sun and Moon are part of a Grand Water Trine echoing the prior Grand Water Trines of May and earlier in June. You can understand more at this link. Just replace the Mars or Mercury explanations with Sun/Moon energy, and you'll get the overall drift of this harmonizing configuration showing us how to flow rather than resist, how to change state as needed, and how to find light and experience from what of these have already been happening in our lives.
We are still in the midst of a See-saw configuration, challenging us to stay centered and not get caught in tugs of war and peripheral thinking. And of course, the Jupiter square Saturn continues, configuring in a semisquare and sesquisquare with Pluto. This was part of a larger configuration at the Summer Solstice which will create dynamic releases of energy and lots of friction we can use to turn corners, put brakes on degenerative habits and wasteful ways, and release our heart energy so that a higher spiritual dedication can be sprouted from the seeds of past aspirations.
A final note: with the North Node at 30 Pisces, be clear about what you want to see made manifest in your future, and with clarity and persistence you will see that dream made manifest. It is a degree of "archetypalization," so image your highest and greatest vision, and hold that vision for as long as you can, and you should begin to see it come alive in the next few weeks.
