Friday, July 25th: The Moon in intuitive Cancer goes VOID at 9:55 a.m. EDT for the remainder of the day. You prepare for the fresh energies that the New Moon will usher in on Saturday. Healing, helpful information is available as Mercury makes a supportive trine to Chiron indicating a day for compassion, wisdom and support. DRUM ROLL - Mars exits Libra where the energy of assertion, ambition, anger and action has been transiting for the past 7.5 months and enters Scorpio (until Sept. 14th) at 10:25 p.m. EDT. In Scorpio you conserve energy deciding where and when to act. An inner reserve of strength and purpose permeates your ambitions and actions. Investigate, probe and seek to understand your own motivations as well as those of others. Transformation occurs in the application of will and your sexual energy is charged.
On SATURDAY the Moon remains in VOID status (nothing of emotional consequence) until just prior to 11 a.m. EDT when she ingresses the Jupiter blessed sign of Leo. The New Moon occurs at 6:43 p.m. in Leo at 3 degrees conjuncting Jupiter and squaring Mars. Expansion, faith, self-confidence, egocentricity and the need to adjust one's energetic is evident. This lunation heralds in a two week period of heart felt action, expression, and demonstrativeness. Mars is also in trine to Nessus the energy of "wrong" application of will supporting you to be wise in your relating, actions and mindfulness.
