Edith Piaf

Click the image to navigate to Edith Piaf’s Birth and Death Charts. Edith Piaf, one of the greatest singing voices of the twentieth century, was born when the Moon was transiting Gemini and the Sun-Mercury Sagittarius, not two days before the Gemini Full Moon. The Sun and Mercury were in opposition to Pluto in Cancer, between the Second and Eighth Houses. Her Ascendant was Scorpio and the traditional Ruling Planet Mars was in late Leo, in the Ninth House, in square with the Moon in very early Gemini, in the Seventh House. The Moon was also in sextile to Pluto in Cancer and semi-square to Saturn in Cancer in the VIII House.

GEMINI, Moon of mental flexibility and communication
Inquisitive and social

The WANING MOON TRANSITS GEMINI from Saturday, July 27, 4.28 am,
to Monday, July 29, 9.30 pm, with the ingress into CANCER.

Suitable energy for traveling, studying, researching, reading, writing, teaching, moving, walking, running, advertising, talking, brain storming, contact with siblings, computer work, accounting, graphic designing, artistic skills. Purchase of books, magazines, school gear, cars, bikes, art equipment. Quick action, rapid response, motivated by present circumstances and the curiosity to know. Adaptable mental energy. Friendly, sisterly, Clicvbrotherly feelings, independent, needing change and variety. Beware of inconstancy, nervousness, irritability, mental games, gossips, double dealings, cold intellectualism, superficiality.

  • In the garden Gemini is considered too dry and barren for growing anything. Its energy is suitable for cultivating, general maintenance, pruning, pest control, weeding, and harvesting. Today the energy could be right for designing the garden, for parties and get-togethers with friends and siblings.
  • Healing Herbs: Coltsfoot, Hyssop, Lemon Balm, Mullein.
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

The TAURUS LAST QUARTER MOON PHASE. begins on Thursday, July 25, 11.17 am,
and ends on Monday, July 29, 4.58 am, with the GEMINI BALSAMIC MOON PHASE.

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.

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.

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.

The CANCER NEW MOON PHASE, also a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE on 10°37′ CANCER,
starts on Wednesday, July 3, 5.16 am, and ends 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.

The Waning Moon is transiting Gemini from Sunday, June 30, to Monday, July 1, during the Taurus Balsamic Moon Phase

Amelia Hearhart was born when the Moon was transiting Gemini and the Sun Leo. Her Ascendant was Taurus and the Ruling Planet Venus was in Gemini. The Gemini Moon was applying to Venus by conjunction.

During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. The last Radio Signal from their plane was detected on July 2 1937, at 8.45 am. The fate of the two aviators has never been discovered. Theories/speculations abound.

  • In the garden Taurus is considered a fairly productive Sign, especially suitable for Root Crops, like potatoes and carrots, helping to strengthen the root system and to make plants sturdier. It is also a great Sign for Flower Bulbs and other ornamental plants, being sacred to Venus. Great time to be lazy in the garden, lull in a hammock and watch the grass grow.
  • Healing Herbs: Fenugreek, Liquorice, Slippery Elm.
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.

Last Quarter to Balsamic GifLast Quarter

The ARIES LAST QUARTER MOON PHASE starts on Tuesday, June 25, 7.46 pm,
and ends on Saturday, June 29, 5.11 pm, with the TAURUS BALSAMIC MOON PHASE

If the First Quarter presented us with external challenges to overcome in order to achieve the goal promised by the Full Moon, at the Last Quarter we feel that whatever bar our progress is within us and not without. We can now take responsibility for our life and circumstances. The battle needs to be fought with oneself and not other people. Both Quarters are crucial times that suggest division and strife, but while at the First Quarter we could find refuge in the illusion that the cause of all the problems was someone or something else, now we can clearly see how we contribute to whatever crisis we may be experiencing. The Moon is now 90 degrees behind the Sun, another right angle. The friction generated by the inner dialogue could be very creative if you don’t let it depress you.

  • In the garden we should stop all sowing and planting, and concentrate on soil conditioning and cultivation. Suitable energy also for harvesting and getting rid of unwanted weeds and pests.

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.
