The New Moon on July 31st, 2019 is about the magic that occurs when the light catches a jewel. This is a highly creative New Moon that will sparkle like a multi-faceted diamond, casting prisms of multi-cololoured beauty in your world.
New Moon conjunct Venus- beautiful self expression
New Moon square Uranus- a shining, shimmering, splendid whole new world (to quote Aladdin)
Venus square Uranus- enlightenment
The Kozminsky symbol for the New Moon is:
9º Leo: A lady, elegantly dressed and bedecked with many jewels, standing before a mirror.
Denotes one fortunate, but somewhat vain, whose desire it is “to make a good appearance’ and who expends much money for this purpose. But the glories which shine forth from a great soul, glitter more than the choicest diamond in the daintiest setting, giving a lasting beauty which age cannot change nor time obliterate. There are two sides to this symbol, and both reflect, for it is a symbol of Reflection.
You will be called to express yourself through creative endeavours which can be anything from art, beauty, fashion, writing, or through making an unconventional decision. There is great healing that can occur when you let your heart open itself up to a modality that will not judge it, critique it, or condemn it. This is why artists are typically emotional people because their art is the only way for them to translate their pain in a beautiful way that can touch people in the way their feelings touched their canvas, paper, or stage.
This is the first New Moon after the eclipses earlier this month signalling a detoxification process. The only way we can detox our systems is through creativity. There is a lot that has happened on levels of our being we don’t even realize, but it will reveal itself when you begin to employ artistic and creative tools.
Like a jewel that has many faces that all glint and glimmer in their own way, the beauty of the jewel is not in these separate facets, rather its the overall sparkle that draws people to it. We each have our own complexities that can overwhelm us and keep us in the dark, but the more we can turn them to the light (express them) the shinier and brighter our world will become.
Mercury is stationing direct on this same day which will bring hidden information out in the open. It will be in Leo, so matters of the heart will be wanting to be expressed. This does not have to be romantic feelings, it can be any raw feeling that is looking for a voice (Uranus in Taurus). The word “heart” contains the word “art” for a reason.
So what is the light that catches the jewel? It’s that special magic that occurs when your heart (honesty, truth, authenticity) aligns with your life. It’s when the two begin to reflect each other that light- your unique sparkle is created.
I wrote another lunarscope for this New Moon over on my other blog thetempleofvenus.wordpress.com taking into account the fixed stars and healing aspect of this lunation. You can read it here.
