The coming New Moon on August 28, Washington DC is @ 5 degrees 27’ of the image of the Virgin, Virgo.
The most interesting feature for the US is the fact that this new Moon will fall across the Paris Treaty charts Ascendant.
The other surprising feature is that when the chart is cast using Regiomontanus cusp, 24 degrees Taurus is rising.
This hour-marker is the hand of Perseus, with the fixed star Capulus- M34, rising?
Ok what’s so interesting about this star?? Well its link to events effecting large numbers of people, especially those of major meteorological occurrences.
Now Venus is the lord of Taurus and Aphrodite is Depressed in (Fall) in Virgo in her own confines, trine to Jupiter.
Now that seems ok, but Zeus is in the confines of Mercury, who is still inactive and as the Lord of the New Moon is idle. Hermes is unable to administer the affairs.
The first aspect the New-Moon makes is to Venus and as so will enact her depression. The Moon rules the weather along with the 1st and 4th houses. The US Pairs Treaty chart has the natal moon at 29 degrees Scorpio, ruled by Mars. The 2010-11 PT solar return has return Moon at 00 degrees Cancer.
The 227 profected year is the 12th house Leo, so the month lord for August is the natal 11th, which is ruled by the Moon. On the New Moon on the 28th August, transiting Neptune will be at 29 degrees Aquarius, exactly square to the natal Scorpio Moon. With Mars the lord in Cancer and the 28th profected day lord is Venus.
So how’s that going to affect the US...well Capulus as the rising star for Washington has permanent curtailed passage.
As a star rising below 32 degrees Latitude it sets with a phase of curtailed passage. Where Irene first formed was 19 degrees North Latitude and at that degree Capulus sets at 2 degrees Gemini, and heliacally rises at 2 Sagittarius. This is the degree of the PT chart MC/IC...
So is the Sky God Uranus along with Jupiter telling us something....as Hermes is idle...on August 29th @ 05:10hrs EDT, Washington DC, the transiting Moon will co-join transiting Venus.
At this moment Mercury is rising......Jupiter is culminating and the IC is 10 Scorpio. The IC’s confine lord for this chart is Venus.
