The Neo Moon

Filed in New Moons

Conjunct Messenger God Mercury and asteroid Hecate – the Queen of the Witches – what else was this New Moon going to do but re-arouse magical powers and something resembling sacred intent?

Some New Moons are really brazen and out there but this one, in the sign of Cancer/Kataka, is deeply private. If it is a dawn, it is within the psyche.

In fact, with this particular New Moon, there is an inverse relation between the strength of the psychic shift and the subtlety showing up on the outside.

To outsiders it might seem like a blur of vaguely reclusive conduct, Cat Lady-hood, Hermit media meandering and comfortable shoes – on the inside, it’s sanctuary and an emotional homecoming.

Even though this is a New Moon and the energy HAS renewed, privacy and/or solitude are where the alchemy takes place with this one.

Hecate, of course, lends extra potency to all forms of divination, connection to Source, dream understandings, soul relationships and connection with animals.

If you have not yet, do a Tarot read for the next Lunar Cycle.

Is anyone else having ROARING drama snits? I’m blaming Mars.

Next time the scopes say “beware Mars can go over the top this weekend” I will sit up and take notice!!!!!!

Yep – our neighbours are my Mars barometer. They were having olympic-grade screaming matches all weekend – another reason i headed for the hills for the NM.

I also quite like the idea that I am someone else’s Venus or new moon transit, etc… The awareness that I ‘happen’ to other people, they don’t just happen to me, if you know what I mean

It was NUTS…very much the “subconscious” moon—i.e. weird feeeeelings I had subconsciously buried came UP, uncontrollably. That’d be my venus in kataka.

I don’t know if it was the Venus trine Pluto energy of the New Moon conjunct all the above mentioned planet + asteroid and also all conjunct to my Venus in Kataka but for the first time in EONS I’ve felt actually seen by other men. I’ve grown so accustomed to my solitude that, although painful, I feel like I’ve become invisible. I guess I am the first one who’s actually blind. Nothing major happened: just remarks or quick exchanges making me feel like I am “visible” again. With all those aspects I would have expected something more “wowza” and… Read more »

Yes, very private and inward. Had a major breakthrough in hypnotherapy session just a few hours before the moon was new, about deeper reasons I drank alcohol, which related to my mom, and the effects of her alcoholism on me and what I was recreating of my family of origin experience through my own drinking. Still working on my sobriety.. I have Kataka ascendant, at 10 degrees, so the new moon was actually in my 12th, and the revelation I had definitely came from the depths of my 12th house. It’s Gay Pride in SF this weekend, and I’m feeling… Read more »

There is definitely a lot of water / katakan vibe! I def relate to your interpretation mystic. Although it is in my first house, cancer is intercepted, which can mean it’s a bit trickier to access ? But, with a progressed (and draconic) moon in cancer, and 4th house Life Lessons, and some other recent dawnings of self awareness, that coming-to-life vibe just keeps ringing in the background like a Tibetan bowl, or those beautiful bells

Crabs sidle. You have Kat intercepted in the first, non? Fake it till you make it. I say this humbly. You like Caps and that must be an intercepted 7th so I dont think the concept is foreign to you.
Being a Kat Sun & Asc people are oblivious to what I’m doing then are surprised when, seemingly…out of the blue, l get shit done.

Yes, sidling confuses predators …. it’s a bit like being the Tortoise AND the Hare.

Also interesting that Daniel Riccardo wins F1 GP considering he is a first decan Crab….from 17th! !!

Yes! – but when you think about it, the race was mayhem & crabs are specialists in that territory – sidling & darting is the only way to get ahead.

Omg is he a crab!! This explains so much

Interesting. This is helpful actually. My Gemini rising and cardinal-fire, 9th house -heavy chart can make me pretty rambunctious. Until I cave because the personal connection is missing. I think sidling in all its permutations might be a missing aspect of the things. Already sensing my Aries bits pawing at the gate needing more rough and tumble so I’ll see how the balance might evolve…

I have a theory, which I’ve just developed, and that is that Water signs tend to reflect their surroundings (Air/Fire/Earth) as a way of staying covert.

In my case Uran shopfronts my vast Moon-Nep-Pluto (in Yin Signs & Houses) Warehouse.

Believe it or not, I received a message from one of my past lives and it was WILD – Cancer does have ties to the past, non? I had an opportunity to meet with a Scorpio stellium High Priestess and had no idea what to expect at all so just went into it with an open mind/heart and trusted that whatever happened would be for my Highest Good regardless of the form it took – I had a little chat with my Guides beforehand to ensure this. 🙂 A session with her can involve anything from energy work/healing, intuitive channeling,… Read more »

The Dark Moon – New Moon coincided with Midsummer’s celebration here where it’s taken v seriously and people go nuts with firecrackers, fireworks and bonfires – all night. Since the celebrations were appropriated by Christians it’s called St John’s Eve and all the noise & fire is supposed to ward off witches who apparently are all travelling to witchy gatherings on this night of magic. Well not fuqing wrong. Apart from escaping the din, i’ve been feeling decidedly anti social all week anyway, so headed for the hills & did my own thing on my own. Dawn on the New… Read more »

Oh snap – what’s up with Tr. Chiron & Chariklo?! Currently he’s stationing @ 29Pis & she’s Rx @ 12Cap. IIRC, that puts her opposite your Sirius Sun…do I also recall correctly that you have a Cap Moon; might she be in the vicinity???

FWIW, I keep “hearing” the rhythmic beating of a taut deerskin hide; a shaman’s drum. Maybe it’s time to join a drum circle?

Hey LV – ha, yes – trans Chariklo, Hygeia & her sibling medico asteroids are all opposite my Sirius-Sun-Hygeia ATM. But my Moon is 1º Leo, not Cap. (It’s Capricorn in my Draconic chart). I have to thank you for bringing to my attention Hygea in the last post (like you, she’s also conjunct my Sun) You & the snake made me look towards the healing Asteroids, and boy what “coincidences”. They are all placed on my IC, Chiron, SN and Sun. Natal Chariklo is ON the IC, while Makhaon (son of Asclepius) who was a military surgeon is also… Read more »

Totally not a coincidence – what I am finding in my own personal experience is that our past lives absolutely do seem to be imprinted in our nativities in the manner you describe. I do believe if your soul incarnated many times over as a healer, a soldier, etc. that you will see the residue of this in your current incarnation/nativity. Check out your oriental planet too; the one that rose before the Sun at your birth – I also feel it has a strong tie-in to the energy our soul “leads” with in this lifetime; perhaps as a direct… Read more »

Thank you so much for sharing your info LV – i love your insights – there’s always an AHAA moment with them – & i had not heard of the oriental planet before. Yet another layer which made total sense as it fits in with my Draconian chart. I always learn so much from this incredible Mystic site! As for your Pluto transits over the past 12 years – it sounds to me like you have come through totally solid. So i’m sure that this journey that you are embarking on now, will be nothing short of wonderful – especially… Read more »

But of course, I had it tuff, Obadiah. Pluto opp my Sun AND Asc simultaneously Nep opp my Mars/Pluto/Venus and the rest of my Virgo Quarry.

More research but that’ll have to wait till tonight. The sun is shining and Mars, in Kat, has me working like a dog.

Sun/moon conjunct natal Jupiter. Just spring cleaned (in deep winter) my wardrobe/ bedroom. Floors, sheets, clothes and book collection all sorted and culled. Hey if your feeling it, do it!

I wish this was a quiet new moon. Ugh. Work drama. May have to suddenly leave workplace i have been at for almost ten years. Why? New land lords dont want “brown” people or women based businesses renting from them because they “want to clean up their image” so they want to focus on “tech and industrial” businesses instead (which are mostly run by white men). They ran the mostly mexican taco sauce biz right outta there a few months ago. Now they are targetting my biz.

Ugh. Still?! :/ but this is the way of the future ..
Tech zones are so culturally/urban-geographically anodyne /stifles yawn/ that they make me want to claw at the wall until I wear the bricks away.

Holy crap, I just checked where she is in my chart…exactly conjunct my sun in my 6th house Cappie stellium. I’m excited about this revelation. It makes too much sense. I’ve been known to magick the hell out of my work/life routine and transform at will causing quite the attention at times. I am really growing to love the fun quirks of my chart…especially Palmas Athens close to my sun, Isis conjunct Cancer ascendant. and my Leo lilith 🙂

Do I need to clean my computer screen or is that an apostrophe in the ‘its’ on that cover ??? #marsinvirgo 🙂

Hahaha, yes – the apostrophe made me squirm too (#progmarsinvirgo) & evil matriarchy raised an eyebrow – seeing that the H-bomb has a father, not a mother.
But hey, if the evil matriarchy is led by a darkly sexy Joan Collinesque type babe, then it must at least be aesthetically interesting (#plutovenus).

My Mars in Virgo, & in the 2H, gets rather possessive over apostrophe catastrophes.
