In occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, on July 20, here are Neil Amstrong’s Birth Chart plus his Transits and Progressions on the day of the Moon Landing.

First though is the Birth Chart of the Moon Landing itself, calculated for the coordinates of Houston Texas, from where the Apollo 11 mission was launched.

It is very interesting to note that Neil Amstrong, first man on the Moon, and Yuri Gagarin, first man orbiting the Earth in a rocket, share the same adventurous and optimistic Sagittarius Moon, just a couple of degrees apart. To check Yuri Gagarin’s Birth Chart and Reading click HERE.

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.).

The Waxing Moon transits Scorpio from Wednesday, July 10, to very early Saturday, July 13, during the Libra First Quarter Moon Phase

His Ascendant was Virgo, so that Mercury in Taurus was the Ruling Planet of his Birth Chart as well as the Dispositor of his Sun Sign.

SCORPIO, Moon of depth and resourcefulness
Emotionally supportive and resilient

The WAXING MOON TRANSITS SCORPIO from Wednesday, July 10, 7.28 pm,
to Saturday, July 13, 1.04 am, with the ingress into SAGITTARIUS

Suitable energy for cleansing, getting rid of the old, spring cleaning, rubbish removal, recycling, nursing, practical and emotional support, midwifery, intimacy, partnership in business, profound talks, sharing secrets, healing old wounds, cultivating psychic powers, studying occult subjects. Purchase of insurance policies, underwear, hygiene articles, medicines, medical equipment, payment of bills, fees and taxes, collecting debts. Helping the dying, honouring the dead. Action motivated by the desire to experience, to know or to control. Reserved and deep feelings, strong attachments, intense likes and dislikes. Beware of wilfulness, emotional control, resentments, obsessive thoughts, unyielding attitudes.

  • In the garden Scorpio is a very fertile Sign. It is also suitable for propagating cuttings, grafting and irrigation. It promotes sturdy roots. Corn, squashes and tomatoes seem to like particularly to be transplanted when the Moon is in Scorpio.
  • Healing Herbs: Aloe, Don Quai, Ginseng.
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.

First Quarter

The LIBRA FIRST QUARTER MOON PHASE starts on Tuesday, July 9, 8.54 pm,
and ends on Saturday, July 13, 10.57 am, with the SAGITTARIUS GIBBOUS MOON PHASE

The Moon is now 90 degrees ahead of the Sun, a right angle, very powerful. We meet some serious obstacle on our way. The goal is still strongly in view (Full Moon) but something or someone seem intent at stopping us or hinder our progress. This is the most critical point in the waxing period. It is important that we meet the challenge now, but it is also essential that we don’t go to war with people around us, blaming them for our difficulties, which are instead just a natural phase of our journey. There is something a bit black and white in this Moon’s position and the attention is perhaps focused too much on outside circumstances.

  • In the garden this is the demarcation time between the first and second weeks of the Moon cycle, an important boundary, because different types of plants can now go in, those we grow for their fruit or seedpods (tomatoes, beans etc.). The Moon needs also to be transiting a fertile or productive Sign.

The Waxing Moon transits Libra from Monday, July 8, to Wednesday, July 10, between the Leo Crescent and the Libra First Quarter Phases

Nikolas Tesla Astrology: Birth and Death Charts

Click the image to navigate to Tesla’s Birth and Death Charts. Eccentric genius and futuristic inventor Nikolas Tesla was born when the Moon was transiting Libra and the Sun Cancer. His Ascendant was Taurus with Pluto in Taurus rising in the First House, and the Lunar Ascending Node, Jupiter and Neptune, all in Aries, rising in the Twelfth House. The Ruling Planet Venus was in Cancer conjunct the Sun on the cusp of the Lower Heaven (Fourth House), both involved in a Cardinal Grand Cross with Moon-Mars conjunct in the Sixth House and Jupiter in Aries in the Twelfth House. His Mercury was in the Decan Aquarius of Gemini.

LIBRA, Moon of justice and harmony
Cooperative and artistic

The WAXING MOON TRANSITS LIBRA from Monday, July 8, 4.06 pm,
to Wednesday, July 10, 7.28 pm, with the ingress into SCORPIO

Suitable energy for sharing, decorating, being artistic, holding meeting, conflict resolution, diplomatic missions, weddings, engagements, parties, gifts, fantasy reading, falling in love, hairdressing, making oneself beautiful. Purchase of articles of clothing, cosmetics, furnishings, flowers, jewellery, art equipment. Action motivated by the desire to meet others half way, to be fair, to agree and harmonize. Amiable display of feeling, seeking equality, idealistic, cooperative. Beware of indecisiveness, lack of assertion, wishy-washy attitudes, peace at any cost syndrome, vanity, self indulgence.

  • In the garden Libra, unlike the other two Air Signs, Aquarius and Gemini, is traditionally considered fertile and productive. Being a Sign of Venus, goddess of pleasure and beauty, Libra is an ideal Sign to sow and transplant flowering plants and ornamental, and also herbs which help to balance the Elements in the body. Libra encourages bloom, but few seeds.
  • Healing Herbs:Corn Silk, Parsley, Uva ursi

 

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.

Crescent Moon

The LEO CRESCENT MOON PHASE starts on Saturday, July 6, 12.24 pm,
and ends on Tuesday, July 9, 8.54 pm, with the LIBRA FIRST QUARTER MOON PHASE

The Crescent Moon occurs half way through the first week of the Waxing cycle, when the Moon is transiting 45 degrees ahead of the Sun and looks like a beautiful crescent in the western sky after sunset. Psychologically this is an enthusiastic time, in which lots of ideas crowd our mind and we may feel that the sky is the limit. It is a slightly naïve Moon time, but also one full of hopes and dreams (the bright crescent shows now the shadowy sphere of the future Full Moon. The energy of the Moon however needs maturing at this stage and grounding. The first difficulties may appear, the first chinks in the armor; but the challenge is not strong enough yet for us to build up on it.

  • In the garden this is an excellent growing time: everything can go in now, but in particular leafy vegetables and all plants that we grow for their above the ground parts, but only when the Moon is transiting through the very fertile Water Signs or the productive Signs Taurus, Libra and Capricorn.

His Ascendant was Sagittarius, with Venus rising in Sagittarius in the Twelfth House. The Ruling Planet Jupiter was in Aquarius, like his Sagittarius Ascendant appropriate for a Priest, a Monk, a Teacher, a Philosopher, Early Environmentalist, Bohemian and Zen Master, all of which he was at some times in his life! Or a ‘..lone wolf thinker and social rascal…’, as some critics described him.

VIRGO, Moon of humility and craftsmanship
Purifying and healing

The WAXING MOON TRANSITS VIRGO from Saturday, July 6, 2.25 pm,
to Monday, July 8, 4.06 pm, with the ingress into LIBRA

Suitable energy for general and menial work, in particular jobs that require attention to details and great patience, crafts, knitting, sewing, cooking, mending, cleaning, nursing, volunteering, accounting, studying, researching, testing, purifying, collecting, classifying, putting order into chaos. Purchase of craft materials and tools, collectibles, pets. Action motivated by practical needs, daily routine, taking care of the body learning to discriminate and to perfect. Timid expression of feeling, sometimes prickly, always helpful at the practical level. Beware of hyper-criticism, a calculating attitude, lack of grace, inhibitions, phobias, hypochondria, feelings of unworthiness.

  • In the garden Despite the earthy nature and the symbolic ear of corn in the Maiden’s left hand* Virgo is considered barren. Plants will supposedly grow spindly, tough and woody if planted on the Virgo Moon. The Sign is great however for tidying up the garden, work bee days, and fertilizing.
  • Healing Herbs: Blackberry, Fennel, Flax.
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.

Warm and fun loving

The WAXING MOON TRANSITS LEO from Thursday, July 4, 1.19 pm,

  • Healing Herbs: Borage, Hawthorn, Motherwort.
A note: the garden activities associated with the Moon Sign depend also on the cycle the Moon is in.

The New Moon1 New Moon Crescent fast

The CANCER NEW MOON PHASE, also a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on 10°37′ CANCER started on Wednesday, July 3, at 5.16 am,
and will end on Saturday, July 6, 12.24 pm, with the LEO CRESCENT MOON PHASE.

The New Moon is the beginning of the Waxing cycle, the sacred marriage of Moon and Sun, Yin and Yang, Night and Day. For three days the Moon becomes invisible. Astrologically we say that the Moon is now conjunct the Sun (on the same degree of Longitude along the Ecliptic). Every month the New Moon occurs in a different Sign. So the Aries New Moon in March/April is always followed by the Taurus New Moon in April/May and so on. New Moons are symbols of new beginning and represent a great time to start something or make important changes in our lives. The energy is right for everything new you would like to try.

  • In the garden this is traditionally a time to begin sowing and planting because the increasing Moon light will help plants to emerge and flourish. Moisture becomes more and more available as the light of the Moon intensifies, up to the Full Moon. Traditionally however no sowing or planting are recommended within twelve hours of the phase itself.

Self protective, reserved in display of feelings, caring. Beware of excessive mothering, dependency, personal bias, emotional manipulation, fear.

  • In the garden Cancer is one of the most, if not the most fertile of all Signs. Everything should do well when planted in Cancer, if the Moon is in the right phase. Plants particularly associated with Cancer are those with a high water content, such as Cucumbers, Lettuce, Melons. Cancer is also suitable for propagating cuttings, grafting and deep irrigation.
  • Healing Herbs: Papaya leaf, Peppermint, Spearmint.
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.

Balsamic Moon GifBalsamic Moon

The TAURUS BALSAMIC MOON PHASE starts on Saturday, June 29, 5.11 pm,
and ends on Wednesday, July 3, 5.16 am, with the CANCER NEW MOON PHASE, also a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on 10°37′ CANCER

The Moon is 45 degrees behind the Sun, only three and half days to New Moon. The Moon light is decreasing rapidly and the lunar energy is now being stored as nutrients in the seeds of future plants. It is also the calm before the storm of activities of the New Moon. Time for contemplation, self reflection and healing. The title Balsamic Moon is derived from the word ‘balsam’, unguent which helps to relieve pain and cure ills. During this time we could distil the essence of our past experience, from the last New Moon up to this point, reflect upon what we have experienced and learnt, getting psychologically ready for the cycle which is about to open. This is a spiritual phase, more suitable for meditation and relaxation than action.

  • In the garden it is certainly no time for planting or sowing, but it is ideal for cultivation, soil conditioning, eradicating pests and unwanted plants and to prune in order to retard growth.
