“Do not judge the mood of your partner’s strictly!”
—Notification from Live Moon Pro Version 2.1
I think the “notification” is actually for me, but I just want to let my Adrian know…
I recognize and appreciate the great lengths by which he always tolerates my “Luna-Sees.”
Still, this New Moon forewarning may behoove us both, as I can exercise some extra awareness, while Adrian may just want to exercise…by running the other way!
This New Moon is lining up to be a capricious one!
• I was born under a New Moon in Lilith (but graciously given a chance for balance by Venus, as She is my ruling planet).
• Being the Egyptophile that I am, 19th July, is a timestamp of great significance throughout the historical calendars of Ancient Egypt…especially this year:
—Inundation Day: The first day of Inundation, marks the start of the season of the flooding of the Nile River. The Egyptians’ agricultural survival depended on the activity of the Nile. With these life giving waters came the provision of rich new soil deposits so vital to the perpetual abundance of agricultural crops. Inundation was the first of three seasons; each season was four months long:
The Inundation – the flood season
The Winter – the receding season (the Nile recedes & the fields emerge)
The Summer – the dry season
—Sothis Rising (Sirius/The Soul of Isis/The Eye of Ra/The Nile Star/The Dog Star): The flooding of the Nile was always preceded by the heliacal rising of Sothis. The most revered of all celestial bodies, Sothis was integral to the very foundation of Egyptian culture. The heliacal rising of Sothis’ was the most important astronomical & astrological event in their civilization. The Rising of Sothis occurs about every 365.25 days, which generates the need for a slight correction (every fourth year). 2012 would be a correctional year, and July 19th, the correctional day.
—1st of Thoth: The inception of the Ancient Egyptian “civil” calendar year. What began as a Lunar Calendar (many millennia before the development of agriculture) the month belongs to The “Primordial” Moon God, Thoth: lord of time…inventor of speech & writing…representer of truth, law, number & order… brother of The Sun God, Ra. As The Divine Sorcerer, Thoth scribed forty-two “Books of Magic” explaining the mysteries of the universe. He is the patron of all virtuous writers, physicians, & spiritual advisors.
• Oh yeah, and FYI, as I conclude this post, I just got my menses (as you so adroitly predicted).
The following is an excerpt from Current Configurations: Intense, Yet Thoughtful New Moon, by Henry Seltzer
The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon presages a warning: A storm in a canyon. The way for our salvation might be narrow at this time and results might come in a flood, faster than we can easily handle. It is good if we can to move with all due caution. There is, after all, simultaneously a slow-motion effect in these days of Mercury retrograde and with Saturn strongly aspected in Libra. Also it might be that things will not go the way that we planned, might even come out 180 degrees the other direction. We are seemingly moving fast and strange, but if we can take a moment to reflect there is much wisdom to be found in the turning.

Moon in Cancer (26° Can 55′ 14″)
The Moon in Cancer gives a sensitive and caring nature. You will be protective of yourself and of others. Your sensitivity to others can be almost too well developed and may include psychic ability. You may have a need to be nurturing. There are feelings of vulnerability with this position, and the past or old habit patterns can invade the present. You can definitely be moody. You are very emotional now and will have a tendency to withdraw from real or imagined injuries.
Moon in the Fourth House
The Moon in the Fourth House represents an emotional sensitivity with issues of home life and the way you care for those close to you in your environment. You will be more naturally domestic. You will be very connected with the need to feel that you are in an environment which feels like home. You will tend to be sentimental toward your family and close friends. You will tend to select people around you who feel like family in some way or another. You may be possessive of your emotional attachments and can seem self-centered at times. You may withdraw into your own self as a way to create a more secure home base within yourself if you are not emotionally satisfied. You feel the need deep inside for a permanent home base right now. You feel attached to possessions and want to hold onto what you have. Though you feel a need for a stable home, you may have changes of residences in your search for a secure and comfortable habitat. You will also tend to hold onto your feelings. You will need a creative outlet in which you can talk, write, or artistically express in order to release your deep emotions.
Moon in Square (within 3.7 degrees) with Saturn The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
You may appear to be rigid, rather letting your emotions flow freely. This aspect gives a deepening and concentrating, or a blockage in the expression of your feelings. You may be extremely sensitive. You may have had problems with the parental care and guidance you received as a child, or you may be fixated on one parent, especially your mother. There may be a sense of over-identification with mother, or possibly an unconscious rejection of her influence. You may have experienced her as rejecting or uncaring — and this attitude may spill over to the significant women in your life. You may experience difficulties in your relationship to the feminine. As a woman there could be a need to more fully identify with and bring into focus a concept of your own femininity. The lesson for you here is to more fully and deeply understand and value the true roots of your being, leading to a better sense of security and greater self-acceptance.
Mars in strong Opposition (exact) with Uranus The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.
This aspect magnifies the originality and eccentricity of your mind, and your intuition is strengthened. You will be strong-willed, nonconforming, and will totally have your own code of ethics. You are more energetic and visionary in your outlook now. You may be rebellious at times, or display fits of temper. You can be quite rash and impulsive at this time. You may also be restless and may lack steadiness in the pursuit of your goals. You may feel a sense of isolation, and can appear emotionally insensitive at times, seemingly more excited by ideas than by other people. Your basis for action will be derived from a sense of high ideals, rather than from mere egotism. You also should beware, however, of a tendency to be dogmatic, or proud and unbending. Change and variety will excite you, and your mutability and urge for constant change may frustrate or confuse those around you. In essence, you are feeling like a courageous and pioneering free spirit, whose mission in life is to bring new ideas into being. You can benefit from bringing more consciousness and clarity to the expression of your goals in life at this time.
Jupiter in strong Sextile (within 0.6 degrees) with Uranus The planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.
You are experiencing a strong sense of optimism and possessing high ideals. You are more inventive and original, and are more able to motivate others by your example. You are in high gear for exploring new horizons, either real or imagined, and do not value security on a personal level. You can be more rebellious these days, because you have the capacity to visualize new possibilities rather than accept an outmoded status quo. You are having an incredibly strong intuition, and you do well when you follow your original impulse. You may have sudden and surprising opportunities in your life, and you should act to take advantage of these, which may involve travel to distant places. You are feeling very humane and just, and holding your principles high, but you should beware of your capacity to envision possibilities too vast to achieve. You can benefit from cultivating a more practical approach.
Jupiter in Inconjunct (within 0.2 degrees) with Pluto The planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.
This combination gives you a period of feeling more positive and determined, with an ability to develop your powers to the fullest. Your focus is excellent. You will show improvement in the area of interpersonal relationships, although you should beware of a tendency to dominate others. You may be more especially interested in the occult, or be more aware that you possess the powers of a healer or mystic. Your best use of your powers of focus and self-transformation are in the area of working with other people, for you have much to share with your fellow man.
Uranus in strong Square (within 0.8 degrees) with Pluto The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.
This combination gives accentuates your willfulness and great depth of passion. You are to an unusual degree tuned in to the energy of the collective, especially with regard to the ultimate transformation of society. You will have a more keen intuition and greater power to transform yourself and your personal relationships as you evolve. At your best, you will be compassionate toward your fellow man, and more inclined to be a helper in creative endeavors, based on humanitarian ideals of universal brotherhood.
P.S. I LOVE YOU, ADRIAN!
