Goddess of Water by Ronnie Biccard

Note: Many people have commented on the fleeting nature of time, and there’s an astrological explanation for it. Early summer normally marks a time when the outer planets move into retrograde, which slows the perception of time and events. The planets are currently moving into summer retrograde, and it’s in sync with Sirius rising, which is powerful and energizing, making the “slow-down” less intense than usual.

The New Moon appears on Friday, July 5, 2024, at 6:57 pm.  At the time of the New Moon, we move into a time of quiet reflection—a void or pause before moving into the more active cycle of the waxing moon. (In the garden, nothing grows or geminates during the New Moon.)

Overall, it’s a lovely chart that supports reflection, artistic expression, and spiritual contemplation. Aspects with Saturn (karma) add persistence, strength, and the ability to move through blocks. With three planets in Cancer, it’s important to understand and look at our personal vulnerability. (When we understand it, we can alter our perceptions and beliefs.)

With Sun (life), Moon (emotion), and Venus (love, relationships) in Cancer, a water sign, the New Moon is particularly nurturing and soft. Water signs are feminine, and they rule emotion. The sign of Cancer rules the family, the home, the mother, and the fourth house of the astrological wheel. The placement heightens emotion, but it also connects us to the feminine side of life — the sea, the mother, and waves of receptivity. Cancer is a cardinal sign that encourages initiative, change, and forward movement. Moon in Cancer increases vulnerability and may draw awareness to wounds, but the point lies in healing and moving into a space of self-love. This placement encourages caring for the self and nurturing the inner self through meditation.

Sun (life) conjunct Venus (love, relationships) brings harmony, optimism, and peace. It heightens artistic ability and creativity. Sun sextile Mars (assertion, male energy) gives abundant energy to complete old projects and/or move through stagnation. Sun trine Saturn (limitation, karma) gives patience, persistence, and determination.

Moon (emotion) conjunct Venus (love, relationships) heightens sensitivity, love, and awareness of emotional influences. It also increases physical beauty and attractiveness. Moon sextile Mars (assertiveness, male energy) adds passion, energy, and excitement to all aspects of life. Moon trine Saturn (limitation, karma) gives persistence, practicality, and organizational abilities.

Mercury (communication) in Leo opens life to greater creativity and self-expression. Mercury sextile Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) increases positive thinking, positive decisions, and the ability to visualize goals with clarity and accuracy. Mercury trine Neptune (mysticism, idealism) is a harmonious transit, supporting connection with the mystical world, artistic endeavors, and creativity. It also heightens psychic attunement with others and greater awareness. Mercury opposition Pluto (subconscious, transformation) may briefly undermine self-confidence and create a focus on personal fears.

Venus (love, relationships) in Cancer focuses on sensitivity, nurturing, and security in home life. Venus sextile Mars (assertion, male energy) brings harmony between the sexes and the feminine/masculine aspects of the self. Venus trine Saturn (limitation, karma) encourages creative expression and a focus on all that is good and beautiful. It stabilizes relationships and suggests finding new methods of moving through vulnerability and limitation. Venus trine Neptune (mysticism, illusion) is good for romance and seeing the beauty in life. It increases compassion, and it’s the perfect placement for creating dreams of the future, which are likely to come true. Venus opposition Pluto (subconscious, transformation) intensifies insecurities in relationships.

Mars (assertion, male energy) in Taurus is stubborn and practical. Mars sextile Saturn (limitation, karma) expands desire for success, perseverance, and self-discipline. It gives drive and endurance, which helps tremendously on the spiritual path. Mars conjunct Uranus (sudden change, quantum field) asks for a review of limiting situations in life and contemplate change. With this aspect, sudden actions tend to sabotage outcomes; it’s important to employ patience and have a plan.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) in Gemini increases versatility, communication, and mindfulness. Think of a radio antenna growing taller on an exponential level. Jupiter trines Pluto (subconscious transformation) increases power, influence, and the ability to transform our lives through positive effort.

Saturn (limitation, karma) is retrograde in Pisces, the ruler of the past age. Saturn retrograde asks for looking at life with clarity; it emphasizes the importance of noticing the areas that require change. It cuts through the tendency of the future and asks for strong realistic steps.

Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which has been in Taurus, will move into Gemini on July 7, indicating new methods of communication that likely involve intuition, telepathy, heightened forms of internet and other electronics. Uranus sextile Neptune (mysticism, illusion)—and Uranus trine Pluto (subconscious, transformation) indicate a special time of beneficial growth on the mystical level. Teachers and spiritual studies are particularly useful.

Neptune (mysticism, illusion) in Pisces is retrograde. In this position, it tends to illuminate our wishes and desires, helping in discriminating between realistic and unrealistic dreams. (In short, we put energy and discipline into realistic dreams. If we’re not doing this, it’s important to find the reason or to move in another direction in life.)

Pluto is on the last degree of Aquarius and is retrograding back to Capricorn, which is about politics, social and financial issues, and ambition.
