The archetypal energies of Virgo and Libra come together through the asteroid Astraea, known as the Star Maiden who was on earth during a period of great harmony.
Astraea is associated with peaceful relationships and finding enjoyment in daily routines. She is an asteroid of simplicity and calm, yet desires to serve and support a harmonic balance between self and others. As the earth's energy changed to more drama, chaos, and war, Astraea was the last mythological being to leave the planet; she stayed as long as possible to be of service and to find equilibrium. Her energy could not handle the strife that was unfolding, so she left earth and became the Virgo constellation.
In your natal astrology chart, Astraea reveals where you search for justice and balance, as well as where you need to be aware of becoming a martyr or being out of touch with reality. You may stay too long in a situation that is beyond your control, or you may be pushed to make an exit strategy to set yourself free.

This powerful Virgo New Moon at 7 degrees means it is time to crystallize your creative intentions and take action as you prioritize your soul mission in the physical world - NOW. The Sun and Moon are receiving powerful support from a Mars conjunction, which provides energy and desire to do the necessary work. The trine from Uranus in Taurus adds pizzazz and excitement into what you are growing, as well as opening new doorways where before there could have been walls.
All 5 planets in Virgo (Mercury, Moon, Sun, Mars, and Venus) are creating a rare stellium, which is a strong focal point of energy in one astrological sign. Virgo is now bringing us back to the tasks at hand that need our attention, time, and effort. You may be looking at what needs to improve, change, or shift in the Virgo areas of your chart, as well as feeling a renewed connection with your body and its messages.
Virgo brings in earth medicine to ground, center, and balance us in the physical world after all of the creative expression of Leo. Now you will see what has legs to stand, grow, and develop, and what needs to be cut off of the To Do list.

The Sun, Moon, Venus, and Mars are all in Leo on the July 31 New Moon, providing strength for new beginnings and a fresh connection to your creative light after the last two eclipses. Leo energy is strong now and you may feel clarity around where to direct your power because the answers reside in your solar plexus and heart's desires. Look in your chart for where 8/9 degrees Leo resides, as the house placement is where you are receiving solar strength for your new intentions.
Mercury stations retrograde on July 31 at 23 degrees Cancer, returning to what he was thinking about in late June when he was at the same point. Mercury's shadow zone lasts until the middle of August, so give yourself time to shift through the realignment of feminine (Cancer) and masculine (Leo) needs.
The biggest news in the chart is Uranus at 6 degrees Taurus squaring the Sun, Moon, and Venus in Leo. Uranus shakes up what each of these planets wants, so there could be little "terra firma" during this New Moon. These same planets are also receiving a support trine from Chiron in Aries, which returns you to understanding more about who you are now, and to own your emerging self-identity confidently.

A higher heart-based beginning is here! The New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs on July 2, 2019 at 11 degrees Cancer and brings us into our internal guiding beacons to trust the way forward.
The Sun and Moon in Cancer, plus the North Node in Cancer, are activating what feels right within, as it's time to pull back from the external world's obligations and responsibilities that no longer resonate with you.
Cancer is your place of personal feelings, safety, home, sacred space, private world, and womb creation energies. As a cardinal sign, Cancer eclipses mean we are initiating new experiences that come from our lunar needs and instinctual desires.
Mercury and Mars in Leo both provide strength, will, and courage to follow what is truly you, and yet Mercury is about to station retrograde at 4 degrees Leo on July 7.
Most of July is about internal readjustments so you can make the right choices based on what you need and want with less intrusion from others.

Eris is a dwarf planet that travels outside of the orbit of Pluto. Eris is known as the Goddess of Discord and Strife, due to her Greek mythology of not being invited to a family wedding, and to get revenge, she later initiated the Trojan War.
Eris, traveling in the shadow of Pluto, is the feminine archetype of an angry warrioress, a woman scorned, and the deep desire for revenge at any cost.
She is the female counterpart of Mars, and the younger sister of Pluto, creating a feisty, powerful energy of aggression and independence pulsing through the bloodstream.
In astrology, Eris has been in Aries since June 1922, and she will journey through Aries until June 2044. Her slow-moving orbit means she only moves a few degrees a year, and she is currently moving between 23 degrees Aries and 24 degrees Aries over the next few years.

The Moon in Sagittarius lifts us out of the mind's perceptions to see a higher path and bigger vision.
The Moon has just been conjunct expansive Jupiter in Sag, the ruler of this Full Moon, and this buoyant optimism has perhaps given us a new way to believe something (or someone) is better than what we thought.⠀
The Sun in Gemini is unaspected after this Full Moon, meaning the mind quiets down as we turn to our internal voice and listening to what we think. ⠀
The bigger tension during this Full Moon involves Mars, Mercury, and the North Node in Cancer opposing Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node in Capricorn. Divisive changes are underway, and these energies will become stronger as we move into the July eclipses. ⠀

Trust yourself and trust the vibes you feel as Mars in Cancer makes aspects to a number of planets in the middle of June. Individually and collectively, we are being pushed to release what we've been holding on to in other areas of our consciousness, as well as the unconscious reactions that are ready to be purged from the physical body. Mars is working with us on many levels as he aspects the North Node, Mercury, Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto
Mars in Cancer activates the emotional body, family issues, childhood feelings, mother relationships, vulnerability, trusting the body, flowing with energies, and healing repressed pain from the past.
June 13 -14: Mars conjunct North Node at 17/18 degrees Cancer
June 13-14: Mars trines Neptune in Pisces at 18 degrees
June 14: Mars opposes Saturn in Capricorn at 19 degrees
June 18: Mercury conjunct Mars at 21 degrees Cancer
June 19: Mars opposes Pluto in Capricorn at 22 degrees
Mars in Cancer moves slowly and sideways with a desire to 'play it safe' as he feels his way forward. Mars is not favorably placed in Cancer because he is 'water logged' by too many feelings at times, but he can learn to trust himself as a reliable beacon of light for growth.

Fun is in the air as the Sun and Moon connect at 12 degrees Gemini on June 3, 2019. Life is especially busy during this New Moon cycle, so look at where your chart is being activated with new thoughts, ideas, and projects.
Gemini's ruling planet, Mercury, is finishing up a quick two week journey through his home sign, and there is a lot to say, text, write, ask, and learn - perhaps TOO much. We can feel pulled in many directions, with too many choices to consider or commit to at the moment. With this New Moon, make an intention to arrive at mindful decisions and to allow your breathe to guide you.
After this New Moon is exact, the Moon and Sun in Gemini will each make a T-Square with Jupiter in Sag and Neptune in Pisces, adding more possibilities to the mutable signs' desires to be free, flexible and open. Enjoy the options that are presented or come along as this is a time to break out of indecision or any self-imposed mental cages. Let go of assumptions and ask questions to gather more details.
Gemini is a mental investigator, and now is the perfect time for finding solutions that you possibly didn't see before. This is also the last New Moon before we begin the next eclipse cycle on July 2.
