The Moon in Cancer plays hostess to the New Moon this evening--and ordinarily that would mean new projects launched or old ones rebooted. However with Mercury, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto all retrograde (with Mercury retrograde being particularly difficult to deal with) I might suggest you spend this new lunar cycle prepping to launch projects during the Fall or tweaking past projects that had a wobbly (aka not so successful) start. If push comes to shove and you must start something new (like a job, or moving to a new home), be prepared for a 'do-over' after Mercury stops doing back flips 22 August 2012. Quite often the last lap of the retrograde (known as a retrograde shadow) is when some significant and hitherto unknown bit of information finally drops, thus changing your plans; try to wait it out and see if something unknown to you (now) needs to be factored into your plans.
So having said all that, Wednesday is a one star day and Thursday is five star day. The New Moon clocks in late, so Wednesday is a day to expect little, rest much and consider (very carefully) your plans (and contingency plans, just in case) for this upcoming lunar cycle. And, as always, do plans some self-care work for Wednesday to assist you in maintaining a high vibration no matter what.
Wednesday 18 July 2012 we may be chaffing under obligations from loved ones or other partners when the Moon squares Saturn at 2:24 PM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT). Angry, frustrated energy meets rebellious, freedom oriented energy when Mars opposes Uranus at 7:56 PM; the fur is likely to fly, to say the least. And the New Moon finally clocks in at 9:24 PM (at 27 degrees of Cancer). If your goals for the next lunar cycle include home and family affairs, property investments, activities that create greater security for you and your loved ones or the development of your intuitive abilities, then you're on the right track for this cycle!
Thursday 19 July 2012 the Moon forms a sextile to Jupiter giving humanity a feeling of optimism as the new lunar cycle gets underway. Some surprising news, clever ideas or a yen to do something unusual is quite possible thanks to the trine between the Moon and Uranus at 7:08 PM. Moon sextile Mars at 8:12 PM suggests a trip to the gym or a romantic rendezvous will be energetic and thoroughly enjoyed ;)
