Mars Translates the Light from the Uranus-Pluto square
So far the archetype of the mother has been more like the fierce Kali than the gentle Kwan Yin since Mars entered Libra on July 3rd. the day of the Capricorn Thunder Moon. Mother nature has been hitting hard with devastating floods in Japan and China, tornadoes in Poland, heat waves in the US heartland followed by insane storms. This is a momentous time for astrologers and historians per the mighty Uranus-Pluto square on June 24th. In fact on July 17th. Mars in the sign of karma, Libra will began to translate the explosive energies of this square with first a square to Pluto in active earth sign Capricorn. Pluto is known as the Lord of Destruction/Transformation and the Underworld. Then on July 18th @ 7:56 PM PDT, Mars will oppose chaotic fire sign Aries.

Yes on July 18th @ 9:24 PM Pacific Time, the Sun-Moon meet in Cancer @ 26 degrees 54 minutes. In fact the Sabian Symbol for 27 degrees Cancer is appropriately: A furious storm rages thru a residential canyon. Looking ahead to fixed stars over San Francisco during this new moon, we see that Mars is rising with Algol relating to a powerful obsession which can destroy. Along the lines of obsessions or being carried away with a cause the Heliacal Rising star over San Francisco and most of the West Coast is Alhena, the marching one leading more protests.
Plus Pluto (representing The Crises/Changes) is Rising when Aculeus is Rising Aculeus is a cluster of stars above the stinger of the Scorpion. Aculeus is known for savage attack on a person or a group. More notable is that Aculeus along wtih Acumen has a notorious reputation in astrology as 'blind stars' or stars associated with eyesight problems. Besides those two eyes which will be scanning for rapid change, our third eyes or pineal glands will began opening for many as solar storms continue. Not only was it the massive X-1.4 class flare on July 12th which unleashed a powerful CME but on July 17th. the effect of solar flares on our pineal glands.
The chart below is set for this mega new moon for Greenwhich, UK in Universal Time on 7-19-2012 @ 4:24 AM with Cancer rising @ 29 degrees or the anaretic degree or karmic degree. Aries is on the Mid-Heaven near Uranus putting the warrior, Mars and ruler of the this house conjunct the fixed start Diadem by degree. Diadem, found in the constellation Coma Berenices (the Woman's Crown) alludes to a sacrifice. Diadem is linked to feminine strength which comes from personal sacrifice beyond recognition or the bright lights of fame. In this case Diadem speaks of a quiet and undying tenancity like Cancer. There is also a mixed blessing with Spica, the star delineating great gifts from the goddess conjunct Saturn, the taskmaster. Spica is found in the constellation Virgo and offers the gift of knowledge and brilliance if we just push a little harder adapting the tenacity of the Crab.
More on Fixed Stars for the New Moon The Heliacal Rising Star over the UK and DC is Rigel. Rigel is the 7th brightest star in the sky, located the left foot of Orion the Hunter. Rigel per Brady represents the desire to bring order to chaos, with words or actions. Sounds like something out of the "illunminati playbook" especially with Uranus now retrograde (since July 13th) augmenting rebellion worldwide. Who would ignore the Latin version Ordo ab Chao, the slogan of the 33rd degree of Freemasonry? But wait this reference to Rigel actually relates to the ability to see the patterns of life and nature . Per Robson a positive spin: Rigel, when rising has the nature of Jupiter and Saturn, but later authors consider it favorable and similar to Jupiter and Mars. Rigel bestows benevolence, honor, riches, happiness, glory, renown and inventive or mechanical ability. That sounds pretty good despite the apocalytpic beat being put down .
The Heliacal Setting Star for the UK is Arcturus, found in left knee of Bootes, Herdsman and the 4th brightest in the sky. Always seeking a new path seems the watchword along with innovative solution found in the road less traveled. Robson only speaks of great honors with Arcturus have the nature of Mars-Jupiter aiding reputation and self determination. Elizabeth Ebertin is not so kind in her interpretation of Arturus: She agrees with Ptolemy that Arcturus has Jupiter-Mars nature, and a reputation of achieving "justice through power". It therefore makes the native belligerent and quarrelsome, especially if attached to Mars and Jupiter by conjunction. It should come as no surprise that Rigel also relates to meteorological phenomena like violent storms and rain. Suffice to say we are still in a dangerous weather pattern driven by Mars-Uranus as evidenced by this story from the Northwest: Violent storm turns night into day over Washington- residents claim the ‘most intense’ lightning storm ever seen
