New Moon August 2 2016 at 10º Leo Decan 2. Aspects: Trine Saturn & Square Black Moon Lilith
New Moon August ~ Aspects
Moon trine Saturn is a great balance of intuition and realism. The sensitive moon and severe Saturn do not usually make easy bedfellows, but the trine warms and soften things here nicely. The over-riding theme is the need to achieve so as to build and boost ones personal security.
Moon trine Saturn may have grown up with a critical or strict mother, so they are used to keeping to a fixed timetable, getting all their homework done and deferring gratification. These folk have a very strong work ethic with the stamina and patience to see a job through to the bitter end no matter what obstacles confront them.
Sun trine Saturn there can be insecurity and craving for fame and fortune with this New Moon. But first those touched by it will have to overcome their shyness and fear of stepping out into the glaring, solar spotlight. Once they make that leap however, there can be no stopping them and they soon clock on to just how much people recognise their natural authoritative presence.
Sometimes this sudden realisation of power can go to their heads and they can become quite bossy. Talking of “clocking on”, Saturn is of course associated with time, and at this moon most things should keep to schedule. There is also a great sense of time rhythmically, whether it is comic timing or just knowing the opportune moment to arrive at a meeting.
Those touched by this New Moon may be asked to choose between mother and spouse, child and lover or family and spiritual path. Exceptional demands may be made to make heartbreaking decisions, which in the end may exile us from our family. At this New Moon we may need to learn that we can’t please everyone. This aspect will always end up hurting someone so in the end we might as well pick the solution that makes our soul the happiest.
Sun square Black Moon Lilith creates a incredibly strong-willed, feisty New Moon. Those touched by it will take it upon themselves to become spokespeople for those they persevere as being disadvantaged. At this time the some brave folk may be willing to speak out about gritty, dark issues that are disturbing or distasteful to the public in some way.
The square has so much tension that it is compelled to action. It simmers with unprocessed rage at being exiled and rejected. At this New Moon these edgy qualities could bring out subversive sorcery from activists, agitators and trouble-makers. There is danger of unstable individuals taking the law into their own hands.
