July 2 2019

The New Moon traditionally is the considered the best time to begin a new project and in some instances a new relationship. This new moon will be in the 4th phase, which is the best time to finish up projects, she will move into the 1st phase on July 3. It is suggested that we plan any new projects, ideas, on the 2nd, yet wait until the 3rd to put those plans/ideas into action.

  • The new moon will add another layer to the influences listed above. 
  • Folk with strong Cancer influences in their charts, may be very sensitive to the words and actions of others. Taking things personally when it may not have been meant that way. 
  • Interest in improving the home, redecorating, moving furniture around, organizing, or planning a new renovation is probably. 
  • Family ties could be important to some of us now and we may be inspired by something or someone to start up a family tree. 
  • Cooking and children and caring for loved ones is on the agenda
  • This could be a great time to try out a new bbq recipe and have a get together with family and close friends.

The Moon and Astrology



In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-off-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void off Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-off-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Off-Course Moon:

These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods. 

Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.

What does it Mean? 

  • Mercury is the planet of communications and technology, he is what makes us think.
  • Leo is dramatic, proud and “demands” quality over quantity.
  • Our way of thinking might get bigger, we may “see” greater possibilities ahead and our plans for the future may become more grandiose. 
  • Speculation, gambling and taking a risk are all possible now. Those who have a tendency to go over budget may need to be aware of such a trait when entering into such situation. However research into sound investments isn’t a bad idea.
  • Time to pick up a good book, see a new movie, or go to the theater with friends or that special someone.. 
  • A great time to socialize and have fun with like-minded folk
  • Children and Pets might be on the mind of some folk. Creating with our hands is good for us now, as is coming up with creative ideas for any number of things. 
  • Leo is a fire sign, encouraging our mind to work quicker then usual, however not everyone will be “blessed” with the ability to think on their feet.
  • Some of us may gear our thinking towards doing, while others may have the best intentions, however the thoughts remain words, good ideas may stem from such episodes, writing them down now may prove useful in the future.
