Our New Moon of June 8, 2013 lies in sidereal Taurus. It lies over Orion and conjoins supergiant Rigel of Orion. Also influencing is AE Auriga the Flaming Star Nebula.
Sidereal Taurus is of earthy and material matters: of building, business, construction, the home and family, property, stability and balance. It is fixed in its ways, industrious, persistent, determined and laborious. Rigel of Orion inspires enterprising entrepreneurial action in a grand way. This lunar cycle may bring somewhat of a reprieve from the intensity of the previous cycle, but this does not diminish in anyway its significance. That which we establish now in our physical lives, and the changes we make throughout this cycle are â€œpreparatoryâ€ for more dynamic changes to come.
Jupiter enters sidereal Gemini on the New Moon, where it will transit through June of 2014. The mobilizing and expansive force of Jupiter will become a significant factor throughout this period. Jupiter prominently aspects the Uranus-Pluto Square, creating a Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square starting in August 2013 and completing in April 2014. Preceding this, Jupiter creates a one time Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune Grand Trine in mid-Julyâ€”an opening doorway. In this lunar cycle, Jupiter makes its dÃ©but in Gemini on the Gibbous Moon through the Solstice Full Moon as it conjoins the Gate or Man impelling mobilization and expansion in communication, commerce, the exchange of information, goods and services, and of getting things done in our daily affairsâ€”an energetic which continues through mid-2014. The Solstice occurs on June 21 (5:03:57 UT / June 20 in the Americas).
