New Moon Meaning

Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So the New Moon in Leo 2022 is excellent for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

New Moon In Leo 2022 Aspects

New Moon trine Jupiter is only a mild influence but should still bring high spirits, enthusiasm, self-confidence and good fortune. Opportunities for personal, spiritual, and material growth can come through studies, travel, business and the law.

Sometimes this aspect makes you feel so content and comfortable that you don’t take advantage of the opportunities for growth that arise. But the tension provided by Mercury square Uranus will make it nearly impossible to sit back and relax.

Mercury square Uranus brings excitement and sudden change which can cause tension, anxiety and impulsiveness. Unexpected events or upsetting news may force you to change plans. An increased need for excitement or amusement makes you easily distracted and less responsible or dependable.

Miscommunication and misunderstanding could lead to disagreements. Rushed thinking and confusion increase the risk of making mistakes, saying the wrong thing and offending others. So think twice before making bold statements, and double-check travel plans. Avoid making spontaneous decisions or agreeing to things under pressure.

Remaining flexible and open-minded is key to dealing with this erratic influence on the New Moon July 2022 astrology. On the positive side, you have an increased ability to view things from a different perspective, which can lead to original ideas and creative breakthroughs. Chance encounters and exciting new friendships are also possible.

New Moon July 2022 Summary

Mercury square Uranus is the main influence on the New Moon in Leo 2022. So unexpected news and interactions are possible. People are going to be nervous, erratic and unpredictable. But the July 28 New Moon is also trine Jupiter.

So by being open-minded and adaptable, you can take advantage of rapidly changing conditions. Even in very challenging times, there are opportunities for growth, prosperity and happiness.

The influence of the July 28 New Moon lasts for four weeks up to the August 27 New Moon. The best time for starting new projects is during the two-week waxing moon phase, from July 28 to the August 11 Full Moon.

  1. Hi Jamie,thanks for this, it seems fairly universal among many well learned astrologers like yourself, that this New Moon is likely to trigger some unexpected events, very welcome by some, very unwelcome by others, whether the Jupiterian expansion project is involved in opening up a new way, remains to be seen, but that Mercury Uranus square is definitely worth keeping an eye on, for information or even “one liners” that hasnt already been bandied around the earth more times than Mercury itself. Being a sensitive, I dont do Mars or Uranus energy very well, it is very harsh to me and can be a source of constant heightened anxiety if I dont keep my wits about me, but this time I do sense something different currently falling away to make space for something else. Exactly what, I cannot say. At a personal level, the New Moon will occur conjunct my 5Leo30 MC, which is natally opposed to Jupiter rx conj IC in Aqua, so I suspect I will feel a bit more influence from Jupiter than those who’s natal Jupiter remains unaffected, Mars will also be in conjunction to natal Venus at 15Taurus15, plus one which you didnt mention (I respect you dont work with asteroids) is that the Sacred Flame of Vesta in Pisces is quincunx the New Moon, and conjunct my natal Chiron rx, which opposes Pluto in Virgo, which is also qunincunx natal Jupiter. Meanwhile I have natal Saturn at 28Cap24, so Pluto is strong there also. Meanwhile Saturn in Aqua remains opposing natal Uranus in Leo. I spend most days feeling like I am being pushed here, pulled there, shoved this way and that, stuck then released, just all over the shot, so, what I am doing most ATM is checking my pulse, make sure Im still breathing, stepping back and observing my thoughts, feeling I should be saying or doing something, but “just know” that would be a hasty and probably regrettable choice just yet, mostly feeling that the timing & schedules for many citizens of planet earth, is completely out and they have things upside down and back to front, and then I question myself, again and again, is it I who is out of sync all the time, but no, I feel sure beyond all reasonable doubt, it isnt all in my head nor is my timing out, with the nature of things, even though I cannot really pinpoint exactly what is? Obviously there are many conspiracies afoot, both theoretical and actual, but its almost like something that is hidden in plain sight, clear as day, is either being ignored, denied or hidden. Unsure if deliberately or just through sheer stupidity, but what ever “it” is, isnt to be ignored, and after this Moon cycle, it wont be possible to. I hope that makes sense, it does seem to relate to what you have written, so I just thought I would offer and alternative version, I know that sometimes helps me, so it may help others.

  2. Hi, Jamie. Hope your health is better. Love your takes. Best wishes to you!

  3. Hi, Jamie! Is the 28th a good day to get married? I’m between the 28th and August 2nd. Thank you!

  4. I wonder how Jupiter retrograde will affect the aspect the new moon makes. Good outcomes for fixing/revisiting past mistakes or beliefs? Revised legal outcomes?

  5. Hi Jamie, this new moon is conjunct my natal sun and my natal mars (5 and 2 degrees Leo). When I was born, they were conjunct star cluster Praesepae (the beehive cluster – sic?). Do natal star or star cluster conjunctions apply to cases such as this, even though the precession of the equinoxes means that there is no longer a conjunction?

    • Hi Maatkare. Very good question. Planets conjunct fixed stars at birth stay at the same orb your whole life. Precession means the natal positions of planets move along with the fixed stars. This is confusing with our Tropical Zodiac. But the Sidereal Zodiac takes this into account. I still use the Tropical Zodiac but use precession correction for transits.

  6. Any reason why the Uranus North Node conjunction is not mentioned? What could this mean? That changes have a more lasting impact maybe? Ot that the changes affect your family? Or your purpose?

    • Hi Bob. I include the lunar nodes in charts because I think they are important, but I have never researched them.

  7. Hi Jamie, glad you are feeling well. Do you think the Mars Uranus NN conjunction which is in close orb at the time of the New Moon will be relevant. Thanks!

  8. This has been a horrible day. Financial mess out of the blue. Disruptions arguments misunderstandings , blow ups in communications. Makes me think your completely missing something because Jupiter brought the complete opposite of what you described or else this is total BS Assume it’s the latter. I just be a complete moron to even for one second thought any of this astrology stuff had even a kernel of truth

    • Hi Wesley. Mercury square Uranus = Financial mess out of the blue. Disruptions arguments misunderstandings, and blow-ups in communications. It is up to you to find the opportunities from those changing conditions through the New Moon trine Jupiter.

  9. A conversation with my daughter today, whose blossomed into a very fine consultant.

    I’m seeing a very early memory in her Progressed Chart, March 31, 2001 (PST). To some of you over 30, that’s instant recognition of the Hainan Island incident. I call her up because i see this, and want to mention to her how sensitive people can be.

    But i also want to talk to her about What is a Recession. And she show her skill to provide the standard answer: Two Quarters of negative GDP growth. But im Unsatisfied, the North Node, Mars and Uranus, theres a puzzle around the emphasis with this word, Recession.

    At the end of 2022 first half, there is a New Moon, in an unusual Age Harmonic with the Procession of the Meteors.

    The history of this Grand Cardinal Cross, you may find on June 28, the synastry with February 9, 1913. Initially two ‘likeness’ aspects are provided: Mercury trine Mercury, and Venus sextile Venus. But on further analysis there are three more: Jupiter square Jupiter, Saturn sq Saturn, and Neptune trine Neptune.

    I ask her if this is too abstract to present to the general audience. She says the General audience might surprise you.

  10. Thanks Astro-King for your perspective. Yes, this moon is very powerful, most Fire moons are. This month its sitting on my natal Uranus (𝑜𝑝𝑝𝑜𝑠𝑖𝑡𝑒 𝑚𝑦 𝑠𝑢𝑛/𝑣𝑒𝑛𝑢𝑠/𝑐ℎ𝑖𝑟𝑜𝑛) so I knew I would get a direct experience. I have my transiting Uranus just about to leave my 6th house (𝑑𝑒𝑠𝑐𝑒𝑛𝑑𝑒𝑛𝑡 18’51 𝑇𝑎𝑢𝑟𝑢𝑠) and the last seven years has been all kinds of surprises with major detoxing, this moon included. At the 11th hour with Uranus leaving my 6H, I got omicron which isn’t too bad but its a persistent detox every single day. This cycle ramped up for me when Jupiter-Neptune conjuncting at 23 Pisces was on my 23 Pisces Moon and its seems like its been an open water fall ever since. So looking forward to the Virgo Moon.
