I have had so little time to visit this blog, but I decided to post the most asked question that I have received in July. Now I can just send a link as a reply!
First you should know what house in your birth chart the New moon will fall in. You should know the issues governed by each house in your chart. Just a few keywords will help tremendously. If there are any planets in your chart that will conjunct the new moon you should make a note of them. The conjunct is when planets are very close, or almost sitting on top of one another. If you have Venus at 18 degrees Cancer, the new moon at 21 degrees Cancer will conjunct your natal Venus. The conjunct is a powerful aspect where both planets become sensitized. If the new of full moon conjuncts a natal planet, you should know what house that planet governs in your natal chart. There are other aspects that should be considered, but we are looking at possible influences.
After emailing a reader as to what type of issues relate to a new moon in the 4th house, they mentioned that I stated the issue of the new moon may have been around a while. They wanted to know how long the issue had been around. Since the last new moon about a month ago or, since the last full moon 2 weeks ago?
Sometimes the issue has been around since the last new moon; sometimes the issue at the new moon relates to the last full moon. Many times you will have the new and full moon at work together.
I have found that the best way to study the effects of any new and full moon is to take notes. I have been doing this for years. You know yourself better than anyone. Once you get the hang of this you can do it for the people you are close to in your life. I see the moon at work in my children’s lives too. As you will see by my example below, there may be so many things come up that it will be harder to remember them down the road if I didn’t take notes.
April 17 new moon Aries - conjunct my Midheaven, 10th house.
I had a list of things I wanted to add to the site, but hadn’t found the time. Within 10 days (April 27th) I had my list together and was emailing my web designer.
May 2nd full moon Scorpio - my 4th house conjunct natal Neptune.
Receive a note from web designer of cost for work and that she was ready to start.
Work begins on site with 4 days of full moon – ending to my wait.
No hot water at home – the gas lines were out in our area (Neptune/water/gas)
AC went out in the house same day – discovered water on the floor (4th house property/water)
A customer kept me busy looking for a purchase she made through the site. After extensive searching and contacting paypal, she sent me a note that she made a mistake. (career/10th)
As you can see, I had home and career issues. The home issues concerned the full moon, the career issues were the opposite house where the sun highlights matters in my birth chart.
And it works for your sun sign too…
As a Cancer sun sign, the moon was in Scorpio…Cancers 5th house of children and opposes the sun in Taurus, bringing issues to “light” concerning the 11th house of friends and associates.
A short time after the customer issue was resolved I received a call from a friend that another dear friend of mine had passed away. She was like a grandmother to me, we shared flowers and gardened together…my kids loved her; she was kind and generous with them growing up.
Transiting Venus (female) was conjunct Transiting Mercury (news), both were conjunct my natal Mercury in the 11th house of friends. Mercury rules my 11th house of friendship.
I also spent time with my daughters (5th) boyfriends mother (11th) explaining how I was against my daughter driving to Florida (18hrs) for a vacation (5th) on the beach after a recent back injury. The issue was a long car ride and Mercury rules over transportation issues and cars.
I was very sad to hear that Madalon had died and called my husband at work. He reminded me that just the night before I said if anything ever happened to Madalon that I hope Ruth would call. It was Ruth that called.
This was an exceptional psychic week for me too and the moon was conjunct my natal Neptune. Neptune rules the psychic, in opposition to my moon it had an impact on my intuition as well. I was receiving energy that week that made my hair stand on end all over my body. If you are psychic, you know what I’m talking about.
In addition, this full moon opposed my natal Mars, ruler of my 9th house of long distance concerns. The call came from 600 miles away. The issue with my daughter driving to Florida was also 9th house. It was too far.
This was a powerful full moon for me in many respects.
May 11th, 9 days after the full moon, the work for website is complete. I’m thinking the website concerns are behind me know.
May 16th New Moon conjunct my natal Mars in the 10th.
More career issues! These are related to the 9th house as the new moon conjuncts my natal Mars ruler of my 9th. So now I am communicating with people at a distance trying to resolve an internet issue.
I start getting red in the face (Mars) with my hosting provider and seriously consider moving the site. The website is down every 20 minutes for several days. I contact support, the answer I was given for the trouble I was experiencing wasn’t sufficient! More Mars, it’s my site! I want the 99.9 % uptime I have been promised! I buy a dedicated ip thinking it could help, nothing changes. I shop for a new hosting service. Merideth was going out of town for the weekend, but agreed to move the site the following week. I’m anxious to do so!
May 22nd - I receive a notice from my hosting provider that they are going to move my site to another server because the one I was on was “performing below quality standards”. Within a few days the website was transferred and the entire career/10th house issue was finally over. The work was complete and the site was running smoothly again. It took just over a month to complete a 10th house new moon that began in April and my life was also colored by the full moon in between.
I hope something here helps you to pinpoint the effects of a new or full moon.
Many happy moons to you! Cornelia
