The July Full Moon this year, as is true most years, has the Moon in Capricorn and Sun in Cancer. Capricorn is not a favorable place for the Moon (in most cases), and the Sun does not prosper in Cancer (the Moon’s home) either.
Oops, I suppose that we are still affected by the Mercury retrograde / change in station / storm. I see, now, that this is a Leo / Aquarius full moon. Those do not happen as often in July, and this one is at the critical zero (0) degrees mark!
Additionally, this one comes upon the heels of a Mercury direct station combined with a historic outer planet grand trine. (Indeed, the end of the Mayan calendar in December did not gain my attention the way this particular Grand Trine has done.)
We produced predictions earlier this year that this year would tend to be marked by disasters in a manner similar to 2010. Fortunately, we have not had any similar to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill or the nuclear meltdown in Japan. Still, reading the news lists a remarkable number of events, ranging from earthquakes to liberation of people held captive for many years (in both Houston and Ohio) to fertilizer plant explosions. Hopefully, these will start to recede, but the window for disasters is open through the end of the year for this particular year.
That said, here is the full moon chart, both in beginner format and horary format:
As a bit of a footnote, I still believe that an important word leader (perhaps several) will be born this year. This particular full moon would be a candidate for the time of birth of such a person. (Various possibilities exist, but this is certainly one of them.) The zero (0) degree mark here is a strong punctuation mark regarding the leadership potential of individuals born at this time. I feel strongly that many of us will look back, in hindsight, and see the events of this summer as being particularly important in the years to come.
Update: when I wrote the above words, I was not anticipating the Royal Birth that occurred. (I do not live in the UK, and lately I have not had time to keep up with UK events.) However, I will state that I believe that this particular individual will be one of the most important in the Royal Family in a very long time, decades if not centuries.
This person will feel a huge amount of weight as they grapple with some remarkably difficult decisions through the course of their life. They will wrestle endlessly with a internal war between compassion and prudence. And, sometimes, they will find themselves at a loss for words. But, in the end, they will have the potential for some of the greatest leadership that the Royal Family has ever seen. (Keep in mind, as you read my words, that I am not an Englishman. I am an American. And, I am not just an American. I am a Texan. Frankly, we don’t bow to anyone, although sometimes we tip our hats to those that deserve it.)
Here is the chart, based on available news time:
I suppose, in hindsight, that analyzing the Cancer / Capricorn polarity was the most appropriate after all!
That said, we see no air and very little fire. Leo / Aquarius are intercepted signs, but they do not contain any major planets. Venus has barely entered Virgo. Moon in Cap is effectively inconjunct, and Algol is either setting or has just set (is on the 7th house cusp). I would be greatly surprised if he were to be an intellectual. (But, I am reluctant to rule out anything for a newborn.) Relationships, particularly romances, will tend to be difficult. He might be a bit of a “ladies man” (Algol setting) in some ways, but with Venus at 0 Virgo he will actually be rather conservative in private despite any public image. He has the ruler of the 10th (Virgo, Mercury) in the 8th with Mars and Jupiter. I would not be surprised to see him die a hero’s death in battle at an early age. If that does happen, he will become emblematic of an important turning point for England (and the UK).
If he does survive his youth, he has the potential to be an unusually good money manager. He might make certain significant financial decisions for England, and he has the potential to lead England into a new era of prosperity.
