Moon Astrology for July 29 – August 4, 2019 – New Moon Week

July 29 – Aug 4 – New Moon Week ahead tips for moon phase astrology.

The one step forward and two steps back dance we’ve recently been tangled in should move forward by the end of the week.


Wednesday July 31 the New Moon occurs along with Mercury return to forward motion. Let the direction-confused Mercury have a day or two to settle in before tackling the priority items.


For the New Moon let’s consider upgrading wishing and hoping and intending to a better level. It’s been my experience that wishing keeps the thing that you want in future time and it never quite comes within reach.

Another approach to would be to firmly declare a goal or attitude for the cycle. Decide on it rather than wish for it. Infuse the resolution with the emotions that it feels like when you have it. What does it feel like to have it in the present time “now” rather than in the future? Call on memories of similar occasions to summon up a sense of it.

Moon Astrology for week July 8, 2019

July 8 – 14 First Quarter Week ahead tips for moon phase astrology.


It’s not about the Moon, but it is a practical astrological transit to pay attention to for a few weeks. During the first few days JUL 7-10 of a Mercury Retrograde it usually feels like a bit of a rocking boat. Hold on to the sides of the boat until it settles.

I have tried everything over the years during a Mercury Retrograde and it’s not all bad.

What does not seem to work is buying an important item which ends up not working out as it is expected to perform. Starting critical new projects, business, or contracts. Now, it’s been said that Yoko Ono prefers to sign all contracts during a Mercury Retrograde so that she can renegotiate it later. Your mileage may vary.

Activities that I found to be successful are:

Visiting with old friends and relatives. Edit existing work and projects. Reviewing plans overall but no changes yet. Check details and find mistakes. Prepare projects to release after the retrograde.


It’s pretty good this week.

Sunday all day which is probably okay for most of us.

Tuesday afternoon be sure to wait and rest.

Thursday evening is just right to take a break.

Saturday evening the same. Keep plans simple.

Best hours for priority tasks are morning to 11a. Switch to routine and parts already set up in the afternoon. Consider the issue at hand.

JULY 10 – WED – Scorpio  Water  Wax

FQ+1. Challenging day for tempers and irritability. Trust instincts. Claim the dark new vision. Evening holds a welcome relief.

JULY 11 – THU – Scorpio  Water  Wax

FQ+2. Mixed morning turns better after 11a. Tend to top matters and help from advisors until 4p. Evening is void moon to take a break.

JULY 12 – FRI – Sagittarius Fire Wax

FQ+3. Fired up action morning. Find an ease of knowing how to put it all together. Solution arrives, or face obstacle with some grace.

JULY 13 – SAT – Sagittarius Fire Wax
