Henry Seltzer – Tuesday’s Last Quarter Moon comes along at an extremely interesting time, as we get ready for a new and really quite intense cycle that will take us into the end of the month period and beyond. This lunar phase also signals a shift in point of view when we realize that we are just a little more aware than we were before the cycle started. In this case, we began with the recent Gemini New Moon from mid-June, and we were just at that time coming out of the extended Mercury Retrograde period.
We thus were in the process of mulling over what we had learned during the previous month of that concentrated retrograde period. This July month, toward its ending, we also encounter the timing of a Venus retrograde, beginning on the 25th of July, making us stop and think about key relationships in our lives, and also of a potent stationing Uranus the very next day; as well as Saturn‘s station to direct motion coming up on August 1st. The times are quite intense, and the patterns invoked by this Last Quarter Moon itself are also revolutionary.
The Sun and Moon make a T-square to Pluto, within about two degrees, while Mars is closely trine to Neptune. The Moon is getting ready to connect with Uranus, about four degrees away from the quarter moon, later in this same evening, so that all three outer planets are involved in this configuration.
