New Moon Aspects

New Moon conjunct Venus shines the light on your love life, finances, and creativity. This is a good new moon for leisure activities, socializing, partying and dating. You will feel more emotional, caring and loving, but also more sensitive and easily upset.

An eye for fashion and beauty makes this a good time for shopping, decorating, and makeovers. However, Venus can give a tendency toward vanity, laziness, and overindulgence. Take care if using your credit card because of a tendency to spend based on emotional reactions rather than common sense.

New Moon square Uranus brings unexpected change, uncertainty, anxiety, and tension. This can lead to unpredictable behavior, rebelliousness, abruptness, rapid changes in direction and even accidents.

The best way to handle this impulsive energy is to be proactive about positive change with open-mindedness and flexibility. A change could lead to a brave new path which opens your life to many more possibilities and opportunities.

Venus square Uranus can bring a need for freedom and excitement in your love life. This is more likely if you have been feeling smothered, confined or bored. A healthy relationship will face no major drama, especially with an open-minded partner. Experimentation in the bedroom might satisfy your need for increased stimulation.

The more demanding or conservative you partner, the more likely you are to lose your patience or lash out in anger. Such uncertainty and instability in your love could lead to sudden separations, flirting or short-lived affairs.

Singles may be attracted to exciting or eccentric people. Those who seem risky, dangerous or from a different cultural or ethnic background. A new romance is possible but any commitment would be unlikely in the short term.

Finally, Care needs to be taken when spending or investing money. You are more likely to impulse buy and spend too much on unnecessary items. An urge to make money quickly will most likely to result in sudden loss.

New Moon Stars

The star map above shows the July 31 New Moon in Constellation Cancer, between the fixed stars Asellus Borealis and Asellus Australis, the Northern and Southern Donkeys.

The list below shows the new moon closest to Australis, but it has already passed over Borealis which adds to its influence. Robson does give some separate influence but most astrologers treat these two stars as one, the Ascelli.

  • 07 ♌ 48 – γ Cancri, Asellus Borealis
  • 08 ♌ 36 – New Moon July 2019
  • 08 ♌ 59 – δ Cancri, Asellus Australis

According to Robson, together, the Ascelli give care and responsibility, with a charitable and fostering nature, but the danger of violent death, serious accidents, and burns. [1]

Ebertin said they cause aggression, lack of caution, brutality, and violence. But that an extraordinary output of achievement is possible if the aggression can be sublimated. [2]

Morse says they give all the moodiness of Cancer Constellation, making people very self-willed, uncooperative, stubborn and impatient. With the Ascelli, cooperation with others is the secret of success in life. [3]

New Moon conjunct the Aselli

With the Sun, the Ascelli cause blows, stabs, serious accidents, shooting, shipwreck, beheading, hanging, murderer or murdered, violent fevers, the danger of fire, disgrace and imprisonment. With the Moon: Inflammatory-fever, pains in the head, blindness. [1]

The Chinese gave this group of stars the name “the spirit of the ancestors” and believed they gave peculiar experiences with the realms of the dead. The same can be said for spiritual seances. [2]

The Ascelli with the Sun gives an intuitive sense which makes one ‘see the possibilities’ where others miss them. With the Moon, the Ascelli take the intuition deeper and will often reveal the poet, painter, musician unusually gifted, composer, psychic ‘medium’ or astrologer. There is also the patience necessary for all really reliable psychism. [3]

  1. This new moon exactly (degree by degree) conjuncting my part of fortune, although I am checking regularly my all aspects and the aspect – part of fortune – has a nice name, I never felt any advantage/inconvenience of it.
    Anybody have any idea about what it contains?

    • Hi Ricky. The Part of Fortune is the happiness of your soul as well as good fortune and material success. I have found it is helpful in good aspect but also in opposition. When transiting Pluto hits natal Part of Fortune, the person usually finds success in life.

      • jamie what do you think about transit uranus opposite natal part of fortune what it will bring

  2. Checking in regularly Ricky, Moon at 26 Cap. It is like knowing the odds, and tempering life accordingly. I knew a kid with his Sun at 15 Cap and he loved his Mother (Cancer Sun, opposite). Fantastic memory, this boy.

      • 🙂 @Gerald, you tried to analyze my chart from my part of fortune position?

        • I used an example of someone I knew that has his Sun at the same place as your Moon and POF, to describe his admirable qualities.
          -wonderful loving relationship with Cancer Mother.
          -excellent memory.
          -smart, knows how to handicap odds

  3. What could be the effects of this new moon on a person with:
    A) Leo rising (11 degrees)

    B) Vertex in Leo (5 degrees)

    Thank you very much for your insights.

    All the best,
