Summer Solstice 2009 then New Moon 1Can30

Yes, it’s true. The day after Summer Solstice 2009 (June 21) is a New Moon 1Can30 (June 22, 3:34:54 pm edt in Washington, DC…post is written with a squinty eye on Politics.)

To view both the Solstice chart and the New Moon chart, check out my post at Stars Over Washington – chart details are included.

Not included are notes on June’s conjunction of Sun with asteroid Vesta, which indicates a highlighting (Sun) of Vesta principles such as: recognition through one’s career – or frustration if it’s not forthcoming, exploring new outlets for creativity, and confidence and joy in doing things well.

Speculation, promotions and sales campaigns, job promotions, children’s activities, relationships, and health issues may also be featured with Sun/Vesta and naturally these things are affected by the sign of the conjunction – in this case it’s Cancer, sign of mother, home, homeland, security issues, and domestic concerns (including products used in the home.)

We may hear our germanesquely-named ‘Homeland Security’ Department mentioned or promoted in the news in coming weeks but hopefully it won’t be required to swing into action.

In the New Moon chart, I’ve also notated on the chart image but didn’t mention in the text, that there’s an obsessive-compulsive quindecile aspect (165 degr) between Mars and the Ascendant.

Mars QD Asc signifies that anger, aggression, and resentment may be prominent; physical assertion can get what one wants; positively, it indicates working hard for the benefit of others. (‘Quindecile’ by Ricki Reeves.)

But wait till you see the condition of radical reformer Uranus, very busy as the apex planet in a dissociate T-square with the Sun/Pluto opposition!

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
