This week, a wonderful Leo New Moon finds us totally engrossed in one thing good. The Solar and Mars make energizing features to Uranus. And I reply a listener query about photo voltaic homes.

Solar sq. Uranus (Aug. 15, 2023, 7:34 pm PDT)

The week begins with the Solar’s sq. facet to Uranus on August 15 at 7:34 PM Pacific time, at 23º levels Leo and Taurus. This sq. happens on the identical levels as final week’s Venus-Uranus sq., so there’s some connection probably to the occasions of final week.

The Solar shines very brightly in Leo, and it’s a time to have fun precisely who and what we’re. On the similar time, the sq. to Uranus means that we could have been underestimating every little thing we may very well be. Uranus is a planet of change and of rise up, and when the Solar is in a tough facet to Uranus, what we’re rebelling towards is ourselves. So if there are patterns of habits or a approach that you just really feel you need to put your self on the market on the planet that’s utterly static and can’t be modified, that is one in every of two occasions within the 12 months when the Solar is sq. Uranus and provides us a possibility to shake issues up just a little bit in our idea of who we’re and the trail that we may be eager to take ahead. I’ll be speaking in a couple of minutes in regards to the Leo New Moon and this usually, the Leo time of 12 months, is when, whatever the signal that the Solar was in whenever you have been born, the Solar presently of 12 months as an emblem is very strengthened in our consciousness.

So no matter it’s that you’re, you might not have a Leo sort of character, however no matter character you do have, no matter your core sense is of who you might be, why you’re right here, and what you want to develop into, that’s topic to examination and probably to alteration throughout this week. Uranus continues to be on the Sabian image 23 Taurus, A jewellery store. What I’ve been occupied with the image for the final two or three weeks that Uranus has been on this Sabian image is that it’s promising us change that may make us happier. In order the Solar squares Uranus, there’s a possibility to glitter much more brightly than we usually would as we get nearer and nearer to our true identification, fairly than the one which we have now been taking part in like a job for a really very long time.

Leo New Moon (Aug. 16, 2023, 2:38 am PDT)

And now for the Moon Report and the New Moon in Leo on August sixteenth at 2:38 AM Pacific Time. This New Moon is at 23º17’ Leo on the Sabian image 24 Leo, An untidy, unkempt man. I’ll get again to that image in only a second, however we’ll start by noting that the Solar and Moon on this New Moon chart are in a conjunction with Venus and they’re all in an actual sq. to Uranus. Leo is likely one of the mounted indicators, which implies that it doesn’t significantly love change. It likes to have its routines. In case you stay with a home cat, you realize {that a} cat loves its routines and patterns. It has virtually an inside alarm clock that goes off at numerous occasions through the day that claims, it’s time now to do that factor, after which this factor. And so they transfer round the home because the Solar does through the day. when Leo planets come collectively in facet to Uranus, which is a planet that insists on change, you may think about how joyful we really feel. We’re just a little bit like – what’s the previous saying? A cat in a room stuffed with rocking chairs, the place our normal routines are being upset just a little bit.

Now the great a part of that is that with Venus implicated right here with the Solar and Moon, with Venus having been retrograde in Leo now for the reason that twenty second of July, we’ve been doing a variety of introspective work, if we’ve been heading in the right direction with Venus. It’s a time to actually study our wort, the issues which can be essential to us, how we worth ourselves, and the way that matches up with how the skin world values us as effectively.

That is the chance to start to make some adjustments round these ideas. If in case you have discovered, since Venus’ retrograde, that you’re discovering it’s essential to ask for extra compensation, for instance, for the work that you just’re doing; if it’s essential to demand higher and extra equitable therapy from folks that you’re in relationships with – Venus is mostly about these questions of relationship and of self-worth.

Because the New Moon level, and Venus, sq. Uranus, it’s positively a time to start to shake up these patterns and to begin to transfer in a brand new path with Venus. One which makes us really feel not solely higher about ourselves, however higher about the best way we’re being handled on the planet.

Leo is the signal of creation and of recreation. In the course of the New Moon in Leo season annually we’re requested, what do you wish to create within the 12 months forward within the coming 12 months? The Leo New Moon season is the time to actually take into consideration that. And additionally it is this 12 months, due to this reference to Uranus, a time of higher than normal inspiration. As a result of after we’re not in our previous routines doing the identical issues in the identical approach, that’s when inspiration can seem and get by means of to us.

The Sabian image for the New Moon, as I mentioned, 24 Leo, An untidy, unkempt man. And at first, that feels like a form of a disturbing picture, and we expect it’s very a lot not in step with Leo. However the best way I’m imagining this image is that untidiness, the unkempt that befalls us after we are spending each waking minute engrossed in one thing – one thing about our work that’s very compelling or a pastime or a recreation, or possibly you may have a brand new child, no matter it’s that has you so engrossed that you just overlook to even comb your hair within the morning.

Along with the New Moon’s sq. to Uranus, I get this picture of someone like Albert Einstein, whose hair all the time seemed just a little bit wild. And famously there was {a photograph} of his workplace that was printed after his demise, and it was a whole mess, simply stacks of paper in every single place. However this was an excellent individual with an unconventional thoughts. And generally whenever you see somebody that appears just a little distracted, possibly they’re sporting yesterday’s shirt, possibly there’s a espresso stain on the lapel, their hair is just a little bit wild trying. You may have a look at them and suppose, ah, that may very well be a genius at work. And that’s additionally what we might uncover throughout this Leo New Moon season.

This New Moon chart additionally has Mars at 22º53’ Virgo, and it’s in a grand trine configuration with Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. All of them, after all, in earth indicators. This offers us a uncommon alternative throughout this New Moon cycle to actually get one thing performed and get it performed in a really exact and impressed approach, and a approach that truly has the potential to be useful to a big group of individuals, not only a few.

Lunar Part Household Cycle

Let’s speak in regards to the Lunar Part Household cycle as a result of that’s the place we’ll see these influences broaden out from simply the following month to the following three years. This begins a lunar part household at 23º17’ Leo. 9 months from now, there’s a First Quarter Moon on the similar diploma just about, very shut, on Might fifteenth, 2024 at 25º08’ Leo. That may be a second after we should take motion or the place some sort of motion will happen associated to one thing that we’re conceiving of at this New Moon. The 9 months between every now and then is form of an incubation interval. Then that’s after we start to take some motion.

9 months after that, there’s a Full Moon on February twelfth, 2025 at 24º06’ Leo. That’s after we start to actually see what we put into motion at this New Moon, it could take that lengthy to actually see what it’s that we have now set into movement. We go into these new moons with a way and intention of what we want to provoke, but it surely doesn’t all the time find yourself trying that approach. It’s all the time good, I believe, to make some sort of intention or promise to ourselves. It’s a good suggestion to have a look at the place this diploma of the New Moon falls in your beginning chart. What home accommodates 23º17’ Leo? As a result of that may assist information you in what you are attempting to provoke and conceive at this New Moon. You actually start to see it at that Full Moon in February, 2025. It sounds so distant, doesn’t it?

9 months later, there’s a Final Quarter Moon part on November eleventh, 2025 at 20º04’ Leo. And that’s the final important second on this lunar part household cycle. And that’s the time we get to tweak and wonderful tune what it was that we noticed on the Full Moon, to see how we actually wish to deliver this New Moon’s promise to completion. After which that continues by means of for 9 months.

Void-of-Course Moon Intervals

Let’s have a look at the Void-of-Course Moon intervals for this week. On August 14th, the Moon in Most cancers opposes Pluto at 12:46 AM Pacific Time. It’s Void-of-Course for about three hours after which enters Leo at 3:36 AM. This can be a Void-of-Course Moon interval to see if we are able to make some change in our emotional habits, significantly associated to energy, management and security. This echoes the July seventeenth Most cancers New Moon, which was opposed Pluto. That was just a little little bit of a tough New Moon. So it is a time to take inventory and say one month later, how are issues trying? Have you ever managed to make a number of the essential adjustments that have been referred to as for round that point, or are you a minimum of starting to vary some habits and a few emotional patterns associated to those issues?

On August sixteenth, the Moon in Leo makes a conjunction to the Solar. That’s the New Moon, at 2:38 AM Pacific Time. It’ll be Void-of-Course for about an hour and a half earlier than it enters Virgo at 4:14 PM. So we get to actually sit with this stunning New Moon in Leo for about an hour and a half whereas the Moon is void.

A Void-of-Course Moon is a shift in conditioning or patterning. Coming proper after the New Moon, which is a starting level, it is a Void-of-Course Moon that invitations us to consider how are we turning into new? How can we shine on the planet? How can we alter the function that we have now been taking part in to make it replicate who we’re much more authentically?

On August nineteenth, the Moon in Virgo trines Pluto at 1:51 AM Pacific Time. Will probably be Void-of-Course for about three hours earlier than it enters Libra at 4:53 AM. So what’s the new sample promised at this Void-of-Course Moon? It’s about, I believe, exalting your day-to-day work. Utilizing it towards giant and essential work, and no one will get to resolve however you, what constitutes bigger and extra essential work.

The Moon in Virgo is a craftsman. It’s very involved with particulars and when it connects with Pluto, that may be a second generally within the Moon cycle the place Virgo will get its discover. When it’s on this good trine with Pluto, as a result of Pluto can signify highly effective folks, highly effective forces, and it’s the second when a humble employee who’s simply coming in and making an attempt to do their easiest work every single day lastly will get acknowledgement.

Mars trine Uranus (Aug. 16, 2023, 6:53 am PDT)

Additionally on August 16, at 6:53 AM Pacific Time, Mars trines Uranus at 23º Virgo and Taurus. Mars is on the Sabian image 23 Virgo, An animal coach, and Uranus is on 23 Taurus, A jewellery store. I’ve Mars in my beginning chart at this place on the place of the animal coach. What I’ve discovered for me with Mars at this level is it’s been very a lot about coaching my least fascinating Mars traits, like anger. I’ve a little bit of a sizzling mood, and I’ve actually needed to be taught to self-discipline that over time. So it’s like being an animal coach, however the animal I’m coaching is me! I believe that that’s true maybe for all of us as Mars is on this diploma. Are you actually coaching your Mars impulses?

Now, there are constructive Mars qualities as effectively, so that is about having the ability to work very onerous to have the self-discipline essential to get a variety of work performed, and because it’s trine Uranus, there’s a possibility for our work to hook up with actual genius. I’ve usually been requested by individuals who wish to write, what’s the secret of turning into a author? I inform them that, for me, it merely has been a matter of…writing! It’s been a matter of displaying up every single day, even once I don’t really feel impressed to do my work, after which if the muse occurs to go to me, then I’m already the place I must be to seize it and to make impressed work. We are going to go weeks, generally, months at a time in our day-to-day work, not feeling significantly impressed, possibly even feeling just a little annoyed that we are able to’t appear to provide one thing good. Nevertheless it’s features like these – and this Mars trine to Uranus influences a lot of this week – and is a kind of alternatives the place you probably have labored onerous, you may have proven self-discipline, and most significantly, you may have proven up for work, that is the time that the Muse ought to go to. It is best to have the ability to join with one thing actually good.

Listener Query: Photo voltaic Homes

On this week’s Listener query. Listener Elodie asks:

Elodie: Hello, April. I used to be gifted Lewellyn’s 2023 Solar Signal Guide final 12 months, which makes month-to-month predictions by solar signal. I used to be flipping by means of it right this moment and shocked by its accuracy in locations.

The e book always refers to photo voltaic homes, however doesn’t describe what that is. I gathered that this sort of chart merely plunks El Sol into home one, after which makes use of entire signal homes. However once I tried to make my very own, issues received just a little complicated. I confess I had been just a little snobby. How might a Solar-based prediction written for everybody be price a fuss? However whoop! – there it was, and it was fairly good, to my shock.

If I wanna make my very own photo voltaic home natal chart simply to poke round, what are the steps, particularly if beginning time is thought. I’m utilizing Astro.com. It looks like this may increasingly even be a pleasant option to make some model of a natal chart when the time can’t be researched or guessed, fairly than utilizing the dreaded 12 midday faker beginning time. I additionally simply love chart variations to get one other lens on the massive image. Love the podcast. Thanks.

April: Effectively, Elodie, the system you chanced upon, I believe, is definitely fairly good. It’s roughly the system that an astrologer makes use of to write down horoscopes. For every signal, you set every signal on the primary home utilizing entire indicators with zero diploma cusps, and you then toss the remainder of the planets into the suitable homes, after which you may write a delineation for that signal.

So, for instance, in case you’re listening to my podcast and this week I’m speaking in regards to the Mars trine to Uranus and say, you’re a one that was born with a Solar in Most cancers. We’d put zero levels Most cancers on the primary home, place your Solar in there, then zero levels Leo could be on the second home cusp, zero levels Virgo on the third, and so forth.

Utilizing this type of methodology, we might find yourself seeing Mars falling in your photo voltaic third home, three homes away from Most cancers, and we might see Uranus within the eleventh home in Taurus, and that will personalize my delineation of that for you and your chart. Now a correct photo voltaic home chart, as I discovered it, would use the diploma of the natal Solar as the start line on the cusp of the primary home, after which that very same diploma of every Solar in flip across the different homes.

So in case your Solar is at 12º13’ Most cancers, that will go on the primary home cusp. Then 12º13’ Leo on the second home, and so forth. So it’s nonetheless an equal home system as a result of every home can be precisely 30 levels, however as an alternative of zero levels on the cusp as you may have it in entire signal homes, or the diploma of the Ascendant on every home cusp because it seems within the precise Equal Home system, it’s the solar’s diploma and minute on every home cusp.

In case you don’t know the beginning time, you then would use the diploma and minute of the Solar at dawn on every of the home cusps.

I’ve checked out astro.com and I haven’t really discovered a approach of calculating a real photo voltaic home chart, however you possibly can search for the time of dawn in that location and use that because the beginning time in case you’ve received a chart the place the beginning time is unknown. You gained’t technically have photo voltaic homes, however you’ll have a chart that accomplishes one thing comparable.

Now, in case you are utilizing software program, and one of many actually standard packages is Photo voltaic Fireplace, when you choose your own home system that you just wish to use for the chart, simply choose the home system that’s referred to as “Solar on first.” It’s placing the Solar’s diploma on the primary home cusp after which generates these different home cusps with the Solar’s diploma.

Let’s tackle your different concern although in regards to the efficacy of this chart and why does it work in any respect, and such as you, I discover that it sort of does, in the identical approach a Solar signal primarily based horoscope, when it’s written by a extremely good astrologer, can generally hit the mark. And it’s as a result of it’s primarily based on the Solar, which is arguably essentially the most highly effective image of the chart, because it begins essentially the most highly effective half of its day by day cycle.

Effectively, I’m such as you, Elodie. I like to have a look at all totally different home methods as a result of as you counsel, they are surely like lenses on a digicam, and every of them goes to present you a barely totally different perspective on the chart and make specific issues pop.

I hope this has helped and I hope that you’ve got enjoyable with it, however I’m afraid it’s a little troublesome to attain this at astro.com so far as I might inform.

In case you, invisible buddy, have a query you’d like me to reply on a future episode, simply depart a message of 1 minute or much less at speakpipe.com/bigskyastrologypodcast, or electronic mail me at April(at)bigskyastrology(dot)com and make sure you put podcast query within the topic line.
