Opening Our Hearts to the Sun: New Moon in Leo August 2007
Nova Leo Lunation on August 12th exact on 4:02PM PDT or 7:02PM EDT
Total self-expression can burst forth on this highly inspirational event bubblingwith radiant energy. Sun and Moon cojoin @ 20 degrees (19* 51') Leo with the Sabian message: American Indians perform majestic ritual to the Sun!
Leo Planets Posited in the 7th of the DC Chart
With Mercury quickly applying to an exact conjunction and combust Sun-Moon in Leo
there will be a strong tendency toward a capacity for concentration and focus.
If that was all there was it wouldn't be that remarkable except that since Venus now retrograde just slipped back in Leo and is meeting Saturn during this lunation.
This Saturn-Venus conjunction is the second this year with the last occuring on October 1st in the highly, service and earth oriented sign of Virgo - a huge shift from the glamourous life as depicted on the American Dream Tube.
We have recently seen the stock markets react in volatile meltdown to the housing crisis based on subprime loans that have finally blown up.
Despite the ominous tones present in this lunation - Chart for DC has all those Leo planets posited in the 7th house of foreign relations, treaties and/or disputes...Yes not only is this the house of open enemies but of business relationships and agreements. We will soon see how Venus Retrograde meeting Saturn direct and moving Full Speed Ahead to soon change signs into Virgo on September 2nd.
Venus is the natural ruler of the 7th house which signifies our relations with other societies or nations or organizations. (Now many more will wake up to the total destructive path that the US Empire of Neo Cons has hoisted upon the rest of the world.) All these Leo planets with the 7th Cusp at 0 degrees Leo puts even more emphasis on treaties, alliances, marriage and divorce issues, public relations, the balance of trade, the conditions of women - this also includes the divine feminine which is waking up as GAIA and very pissed off!
Leo is about courage, being the center of attention and it is also about Joy!
He who kisses the joy as it flies, lives in eternity’s sunrise. WILLIAM BLAKE
As Barbara Hand Clow says about this remarkable event: " Sun/Moon/Mercury exactly opposite Neptune in Aquarius (as well as Chiron) is very significant because Neptune in Aquarius (1998-2012) has been guiding our spiritual opening all the way through the Galactic Underworld-1999-2011. "
Not only will the housing crisis accelerate but our sense of time is catalyzed by all these Neptune oppositions - there is a sense that that which was solid (like the empire's 3D Realitiy pronouncements including the phony War on Terror are dissolving into a greater, much larger dimensional shift.
Chiron the wounded healer @ 13 Aquarius is a barometer for our own deeper psychological insights with the Sabian Symbol: Neighbors have gathered to hear the news in a rural mansion equipped with a short wave radio. The host fiddles with the antenna to get a better signal. At this juncture we all are ready to get an accurate picture of our own interior cultural and spiritual reality...
Notice that the new moon chart also has Mars in Gemini (in the 4th) opposing Jupiter in Sagittarius in the 10th to make up one arm of a mutable, life changing cross with the Nodes of destiny in Pisce-Virgo making up the other arm. Mars in multi-directional Gemini is symbolically located in the 4th house of real estate and land values, mines, coal pits, minerals, quarries, the weather in direct conflict with Jupiter (prosperity and expansion). Jupiter is found in the 10th house of the DC Chart: the 10th which rules the government, the leadership or ruling class. In a nation's chart it rules the national reputation and prestige, world opinion, the party in power, the chief executive - ENOUGH SAID!
With Jupiter recently moving direct this mutable grand square with Pisces karmic focus on awakening true Christed compassion should allow many to see the root cause of America's primary difficutlites which have resulted in wasting precioius life and resources to wage
an unjust, antiquated and totally immoral war. This highly adaptable grand cross with Jupiter (sphere of the masters) applying to another SQ with Uranus the trickster bringing many surprises and sextile to Chiron opening us to a necessary healing process. The Sun ruler of Leo will shine on our need to protect the precious nature of life and the pursuit of happiness by ending all war once and for all.
