Week of the Last Quarter Moon

Week of the Last Quarter Moon

by Lyn Dalebout

Star Signposts: Week of the Last Quarter Moon July 16– 22

There can be increased edginess all around, with heightened levels of anger, frustration, short tempers as both Sun and Mars are getting nearer and nearer to their annual conjunction on July 26. It is also an exceedingly athletic time for many, with records being shattered. If you recall, I mentioned in previous Star Signposts that we are immersed in a long-range conjunction of Pluto/Juno. This means many are experiencing ‘death’ or deep regeneration in regards to key partnerships. It’s all part of letting go of relationships and behaviors that are completing, preparing us for new alliances by the end of this year.

Find ways to stay cool, like eating more chlorophyll which literally cools the blood (green drinks, salads) or make a daily gallon of cucumber-mint water for your family to sip throughout the day (float thin slices of cucumber with sprigs of refreshing mint, refilling the water throughout the day, but making a fresh batch every day). Spend extra time near water or doing water sports.

In addition, as Venus is currently transiting sidereal Taurus, it’s a supportive time to focus on finances or set intentions surrounding abundance and love. You will be richly rewarded if you stay positive and directed in your mind’s third eye, steering clear of fear or self-doubt.

Thank you, Natalie, for the use of your beautiful paintings throughout this Star Signpost SolLunar Cycle. See Natalie’s Artist Statement at the end of this post.


ECLIPSE MINI-READINGS: I am offering mini-readings for $44 (a number associated with living your Mastery on Earth) from now until the end of August. In this short reading, I will let you know where this historic Solar Eclipse is taking place in your personal chart, which helps identify where and how these dynamic energies are encouraging you already, NOW, to step out of one life and into the next exciting phase. Please send me an email if that interests you. Thank you!

NOTE: I post twice a month, on the New Moon (which includes the two weeks of New Moon and First Quarter Moon) and on the Full Moon (which includes the two weeks of Full Moon and Last Quarter Moon). As you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energies of each unique SolLunar Cycle, you will find your life flow with more ease and grace. My interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments. You can read about my unique way of interpreting astrology at this link: EarthWord SkyWord sidereal readings. Even NASA is onboard now with the sidereal zodiac!

Here is a description of the qualities of the Last Quarter Moon phase compliments of my friend and sidereal colleague, Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner:

“This phase completes with our Inner Needs surfacing to consciousness, to become aware of what is important to self and what is not. A sense of completion comes forth with a recognition that the past scenario has served its purpose and it is time to leave what is antiquated behind. Knowing now what our Truth is, it is time to consciously live it. Doing so provides a choice for others to also live theirs. Changing allows us to spiral to a new octave of experience—one that will eventually sprout in the next lunar cycle to come.”


Sun July 16

Last Quarter Moon: Sun in Gemini square Moon in Pisces: This monthly turning point helps us readjust our focus from where we have been to where we are heading next. You might feel confused by the tug of many choices. The emotional Moon in Pisces feels very differently about something than the analytical Sun in Gemini. Sit with the conundrum for a bit, embracing the totality of your options. Eventually the perfect choice will appear in the upcoming weeks.

Mercury in Cancer quincunx Pluto in Sagittarius: New information is surfacing in your consciousness or in our national politics, but you won’t be hearing about it yet due to the secretive nature of Mercury in Cancer. Trust the deep awarenesses that are arising from within, unspoken for now, but taking shape, surely and certainly.

Mon July 17

Mars in Cancer square Uranus in Aries trine Chiron in Pisces: This highly volatile, tense square is especially charged in regards to our home situations. That may involve conflicts with surrounding neighbors. Head’s up to avoid a conflagration and use the healing energy of Chiron to find a solution that mostly works for everyone.

Moon/Uranus/Pallas Athene conjunction in Aries: Breakthroughs on the creative front are possible today with this dynamic, initiatory alignment of the triggering Moon with the goddess of creative wisdom, Pallas Athene and breakthrough Uranus. Exciting collaborations begin today.

Venus in Taurus square Neptune in Aquarius: This square pits our dreams against our financial reality, or it helps us get organized financially so we can make those dreams come true. Stick to a budget that honors what you are creating, and forego a fleeting treat today so a more enduring gift arrives in the coming weeks.

Tue July 18

Venus in Taurus trine Jupiter in Virgo: A windfall might fall into your lap or you might move with grace and ease from task to task, accomplishing much. Taurus and Virgo are Earth signs, which love to clean and order the physical world. Appreciate the simple joy and therapy of house cleaning.

Moon in Aries square Mercury in Cancer: Use this aspect to make decisions. No more procrastinating when Moon is in Aries! Be bold, courageous, take a risk.

Wed July 19 ~ Thu July 20

Moon/Venus conjunction in Taurus: This planetary pair of jewels can be seen at first light the morning of July 20. Look eastward with gratitude and appreciation for the abundant beneficence this conjunction brings forth in our world, and in your world.

Sun in Cancer trine Chiron in Pisces: Bathe in the healing waters of this alignment which encourages emotional vulnerability and trust as you share your deeper secrets and desires. It also calls forth a longing to serve at a higher level of service, whatever that means for you.

Pallas Athene in Aries trine Juno in Sagittarius: Creative partnerships are making progress today as doors open and plans proceed for increased opportunity, possibility and cooperation.

Fri July 21

Mercury/North Lunar Node conjunction in Cancer: This prophetic alignment brings information to you from your deepest self. Make space for reflection, meditation, inner listening. It also offers a portal of passage to some, ready to embark on the next leg of their journey.

Moon/Ceres conjunction in Gemini opposite Juno in Sagittarius: It’s a lovely day for an educational adventure with people you care about, like taking a great niece to a bookstore, a grandparent to a outdoor market. Just get out and explore with someone who brings your joy.

Sat July 22

Moon in Gemini aspects: There are many triggering alignments the curious and talkative Gemini Moon makes today, on this last day of our SolLunar Cycle. A supportive trine to Neptune in Aquarius ensures happy conversations with friends and community members. However the opposition to Pluto in Sagittarius pressures you to make sure you are coming from rock-bottom honesty. And the square to solution-minded Jupiter in Virgo offers exceptional analysis and keen insight.  Happy New Moon tomorrow!
