The Waxing Moon transits Sagittarius from early Saturday, July 13, to Monday, July 15, during the Sagittarius Gibbous Moon Phase

Young Mozart

Click the image to navigate to Mozart’s Birth and Death Charts. Wolfang Amedeus Mozart was born when the Moon was transiting Sagittarius (in close conjunction to Pluto) and the Sun Aquarius. His Ascendant was Virgo and the Ruling Planet Mercury was conjunct the Sun in Aquarius. He died at the age of 35, of unknown causes. There are speculations that he might have been poisoned, as this is what himself feared when he became ill. There is not proof however that this was the case, and most historians believe he died of natural causes.

SAGITTARIUS, Moon of the questing spirit and prophecy
Adventurous, independent

The WAXING MOON TRANSITS SAGITTARIUS from  Saturday, July 13, 1.04 am,
to Monday, July 15, 9.04 am, with the ingress into CAPRICORN

Suitable energy for traveling, exploring, radiating optimism, engaging in philosophical discussions, speculations, risk taking, gambling, adventures, trekking, camping out, wild life, search for God or Guru. Purchase of travel tickets, camping gear, cars, bikes, horses, dogs, raffle and lottery tickets. Action motivated by the desire to explore behind the personal sphere. Friendly display of feelings, gregarious and warm, but extremely independent and often unreliable. Beware of self inflation, preaching, boasting, being fanatical, overbearing, self righteous, impatient, uncompromising.

  • In the garden Sagittarius, like all Fire Signs, is traditionally considered too hot, dry and barren for growing anything, with the exception of Fruit Trees. Its energy is suitable for cultivating, general maintenance, pruning, pest control, weeding, and harvesting. A day with your favourite pet could prove rewarding, and so will be a night under the stars.
  • Healing Herbs: Dandelion, Garlic, Horsetail, Onions.
A note: the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in. The Moon transiting through a fertile or productive Sign will no be so favorable if the Phase is not a productive one, and vice-versa. For best results the Sign and Phase of the Moon have to be considered together.

Gibbous Moon

The SAGITTARIUS GIBBOUS MOON PHASE starts on Saturday, July 13, 10.57 am,
and ends on Wednesday, July 17, 7.38 am, with the CAPRICORN FULL MOON PHASE,
also a PARTIAL LUNAR ECLIPSE on 2404′ CAPRICORN

The Moon is waxing, 135 degrees ahead of the Sun, only 45 degrees or three and half days to the Full Moon. The Moon shows a strange shape now, like a rugby ball. Our goals are becoming more clear and we can power ahead, not too concerned about possible obstacles on our path. The power of attraction of the Full Moon proves irresistible.

In the garden as in life there should be plenty of activities and a sense of urgency, least one should waste the great energy available at the moment. When the Moon transits a very fertile Sign like Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, or a productive Sign like Taurus, Libra and Capricorn in this phase practically every plant and seed can go into the garden successfully. This is the middle of the second waxing week. Ideally, after sowing or planting leafy vegetables in the first week, we should be busy putting in those plants we grow for their fruit or seedpods (tomatoes, beans, etc.).
