Full Moon Diplomacy and Protest — July 13-20 2022  


The full Moon in Capricorn on Wednesday July 13th, as Pres. Biden begins his diplomatic journey through the Middle East, beginning with Israel, then flying to Saudi Arabia, and meeting with heads of state in Israel, Palestinian Authority, and Saudi Arabia. While his trip is focused on efforts to reduce the price of oil, lowering the cost of gasoline in the US, he will likely encounter several challenges to US policy every step of the way. Yet, the full Moon chart shows promise for success. Ceres is trine aspect to Neptune and conjunction aspect to his natal Jupiter. Transiting Sun in Cancer will be trine aspect to his natal Mercury, Sun and Venus. His famous empathy will doubtless be on display, as he approached by various individuals for legal actions. His bid to lower oil prices does not hold much promise, according to analysts. He will have to speak forcefully. With Uranus in Taurus in opposition aspect to the midpoint of his natal Mars-Mercury conjunction, he could come under strong opposition. Yet, the trip could be a great asset to his popularity worldwide. On July 15th, the Moon in Aquarius makes a square aspect to Uranus, conjunction aspect to Saturn, and trine aspect to Venus, and square aspect to Biden’s natal Sun, at a high point of his tour. The Moon ingress to Pisces on the 16th, as Biden returns to the US. Wishing him a safe journey and success in his mission.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Rahu is said to work similar to Saturn, therefor able to both stabilize and oppress any radical actions (Uranus). Detection of abnormalities is crucial for security.

While the Sun and Mercury approach the trine aspect to Biden’s natal Sun in Scorpio, making a grand-trine major configuration. None-the-less, the ease of accomplishment could fail in the long-term.
