Black Thunder Full Moon: Get Ready For The Massive Energy Shift On July 16th 2019

This year a colorful array of different celestial events are occurring, and being given names that aren't often heard.

July 2019 will be a month speckled with different gems in the sky, from eclipses, to a "black moon" and "thunder moon."

Due to the fact that the Gregorian calendar we use isn't perfectly aligned with the lunar cycle from month to month (you might say "Moonth"), around every 32 months or so two new moons occur in one ordinary calendar month.

The "black moon" is a name given to that second sun conjunct moon, or new moon during one month. It's no official astronomical term, but the media picked up on it and so did some skywatchers.

When the moon appears to conjoin, or align with the sun from Earth's perspective, it's a new moon of course, and the full moon is sun opposite moon from our perspective.

Studying your astrological sign can give you quite a lot of insight into your personality. You won't believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about you as well!

That's right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.

Have you ever managed to see the "almost" new moon, at dusk or dawn when the moon is just a tiny sliver, still quite close to the sun but visible with the naked eye due to the sun being beneath the horizon?

On the day of a new moon when the sun's rays are coming down upon everyone, the moon is actually right there next to it, but the bright rays of the sun completely block our ability to see it.

Of course, the solar eclipse a couple days ago was only really visible from South America, so if one looked up at the sky from California at noon that day, they would have simply seen the sun.

The first new moon this month was that eclipse, so now the next one can be considered a "Black Moon," occurring at 8:12 p.m. Pacific Time on July 31, 2019.

What's more, the full moon eclipse on July 16 has been traditionally referred to as the "Thunder Moon" or "Full Buck Moon" by Native American tribes.

It's important to understand that it's not really the correct phrasing to say something such as the full moon or new moon "coincides" with an eclipse: an eclipse is an exact full moon or new moon, the same thing, never a coincidence.

The Native American name for this moon reportedly finds origin in the North American weather patterns experienced during this time, the thunderstorms frequently seen in July and the interesting growth of male deer.

Male deer or bucks are known to undergo a jolt of accelerated growth to their antlers during this time.

It must have been a remarkable observation to be made: imagine if you were just observing the seasons, living the natural life and suddenly you notice the deer have accelerated antler growth.

Then you notice this happens when the Sun is at this position every year.

Astrologically however, the full moon eclipse on July 16 is very strange because it occurs in tight alignment with Saturn conjunct Pluto, a conjunction of those two planets that occurs only once every 36 years or so.

Even more unlikely, the heliocentric south nodes of both Saturn and Pluto are at this spot in Capricorn where they conjoin.

In other words, the most exact alignment (conjunction) possible with Saturn or Pluto individually is right where they are both conjoining now, because heliocentric nodes are the place in which planets perfectly meet the belt of the ecliptic.

In similar fashion, the moon's nodes are where eclipses happen: a new moon on the moon's nodes is an eclipse, and a full moon on the nodes is an eclipse.

Astrological Interpretation

While we explored the heavy, purgative and solemn qualities of Saturn conjunct Pluto in past articles, and how the two eclipses aligned with it in July and January could create waves of this energy for months, here's an interpretation of the Black Moon.

This is the astrology chart for the Black Moon, the first major node in the lunar cycle since the two eclipses in July.

New Moon is astrologically interpreted in a similar fashion to an eclipse.

An eclipse is supposed to be something that crystallizes whatever energy it touches in the collective consciousness, like a delayed reaction, sending a wave of energy through everyone for months.

Subconscious lessons are thought to be tied to eclipses, a sense of direction, particularly in the emotions and deep in the subconscious (Moon).

The New Moon is known to be the beginning of a cycle, thought to crystallize a certain subconscious theme in people for the next couple weeks or so.

Aspects made by planets at the time of a new moon, full moon, or eclipse are known to be a sign at least, or a physical source of energy that literally pulls us in a certain direction at most.

The Black Moon makes a positive aspect to the most positive planet in astrology, in its own positive sign for the first time in 12 years.

It trines Jupiter in its own sign of Sagittarius, just about the most harmonious and promising aspect it could possibly make, with Mars also in close proximity, adding warmth to the configuration.

The new moon occurs in the Sun's sign Leo, a sign that produces this sunny, happy, warm energy capable of lighting up a room or negating feelings of darkness or fear.

It seems very fateful that we are continuously being insulated by the warmth and subtle sociability of Jupiter in Sagittarius, during this solemn year of Saturn conjunct Pluto in Saturn's own sign.

This moon should signal rejuvenation from at least two weeks of intensity, stemming from the July 16 lunar eclipse conjunct Saturn and Pluto.

At the same time, Venus in Leo will be square Uranus in Taurus during the Black Moon, another planet in the same position Mercury and Mars were, squaring Uranus during the first solar eclipse at the beginning of the month.

Everything from intense romance to headstrong, possibly political conflict is possible with this square.

Squares to Uranus are known to produce jagged opinions, things that are political, technologically on fire or intense.

Since Venus is the great node of social activity, love, relations between people in the air, the energy will feel sort of agitated during this time socially and in the realm of love.

However it will also be a very energized, warm, active and potentially sensual energy.

Very sensual, physical romantic energy is produced by the same aspects that might inspire conflict, and Venus square Uranus is a major one of those.

That type of energy should continue into the first two weeks of August, crystallized by the Black Moon.

You can learn even more by studying numerology, the science of the numbers in your first name and date of birth.

Analyzing these numbers can give you interesting insight into who you are and how you move through the world.

Read on for your daily astrology report!

ARIES

Today shifts into a harmonious cycle for you, Aries, which is so different from your chaotic and disharmonious energy other days.

Unfortunately, there will still be frustrations, inconveniences, and delays, even for you, but it will be a cake walk compared to the rest of the zodiac.

If you start feeling sorry for yourself, just look around. The sky isn't actually falling, but it sure will feel like it is.

Later in the day, home is highlighted, though there will be old issues you thought you'd settled but which come up like a septic tank backing up.

Deal with it as best you can and retire early if you can. You need the rest.

TAURUS

All the planets that are retrograde today will influence you in decision-making, though they will do so in stealth mode.

You'll recognize that you're thinking weird thoughts, but it may not seep into your consciousness why you're thinking weird thoughts.

If you allow them to come through, you will find yourself opening your mind to new ways of thinking and expressing yourself that will feel like coming home, as if you've always been meant to think this way.

This will also shine a light on areas where your thinking may need upgrading. It's all good.

GEMINI

You have three weeks from today to review your options and rethink plans, as your ruling planet, Mercury, is full-on retrograde.

Anything related to communications, transportation, electronics, or conversing with others will be screwy…or not. That's what is great about Mercury Rx…you never know where it will mess with you.

And whether it will at all! If you were born with Mercury Rx in your natal chart, then you will experience this period in a completely different way than those born with Mercury Direct in their chart.

Just plot a course and do your best to stay on it. Ignore impulsive tendencies. See you on the flip side.

CANCER

You're focused on finances, income, and budgets right now, which is a good thing.

You will accomplish a lot of positive progress in these areas under the current cosmic situation…which is a hot mess.

Doing something regimented and precise helps avoid the nightmares that others will be experiencing over the next three weeks.

Numbers don't lie.

Invest your time in cleaning up your own finances and then perhaps volunteer to help someone in your circle of friends and family.

They'll be grateful for the assistance, and you'll have turned negative energy into a positive. Good for you!

LEO

Confusion may be part of a healthy breakfast this weekend as Mercury and numerous other planets seem to go in reverse in our skies.

You may feel misunderstood, urging you to be as clear as possible in all communications for the next three weeks.

No, the universe is not out to get you, though it may feel like it. You tend more toward introspection instead of your usual extroverted approach to life.

Intuition wins over logic and rationale every time, so perhaps it's time to start relying on it. Take it slow and focus on making sure the details are right.

You can't lose.

VIRGO

You may find problems cropping up on the daily right now due to your ruling planet, Mercury, stationing retrograde today, which will continue until the end of the month.

Your usually foolproof instincts might just lead you astray, so trust with caution.

People will set up appointments with you and then not show up. Things you order online seem to get lost temporarily, as if they vanished in thin air.

Then they'll be at your doorstep with no explanation as to why they're a few weeks late. Might as well get used to it for now. It'll be over eventually.

LIBRA

These retrograde planets are going to impact your sector of friends and family, contributions, and then career and reputation.

It'll feel like the dominos start to fall today, and then fall continuously through the end of the month.

That's not to stay it'll be difficult, but by the 31st you're going to be ready for a long vacation.

But by then, you'll be up to your neck in deadlines, so the next eight weeks are going to seem tortuously slow. But you can get through it with grace and panache, just like always.

SCORPIO

You're advised to catch up on things that seemed to slow down before today.

You are likely frustrated by these events, but the universe always has a plan even if we don't know what it is for now.

Don't approach these tasks as annoying or inconvenient or else they'll turn into unwanted chores, which will make things worse for you.

Review debts and financial obligations and plot a clear path to the future.

When communicating in public or with colleagues and managers, take it slowly, as you're likely to say something innocent that will cause great drama. Not your intention, but still…

SAGITTARIUS

In the science world, there's such a thing as "fuzzy thinking," and you will definitely be experiencing that today and probably for the next few weeks as there are six planets zipping backward in retrograde currently.

If you don't think that'll mess up your thinking, you may be under the influence already!

There will be detours and slow-downs in every part of the day, but they may be the silver lining of all this chaos.

This energy will allow you to peek behind the curtain to get a glimpse of problems before they become something major.

Be proactive and get things taken care of and you'll win the day.

CAPRICORN

You're about to find yourself backtracking your efforts in finance, intimate relationships, and trust, thanks to Mercury and five other planets all retrograde right now.

You're encouraged to withdraw from the chaos and go deep inside to review your life up until this point. Is this where you wanted to be?

What goals have you set that will serve you best?

This is an excellent time to do a personal inventory, so you're prepared once the heavens rearrange themselves in a more pleasing and helpful manner.

AQUARIUS

These retrograde planets take aim at your personal relationships, Aquarius, and you can expect delays, interruptions, distractions, and just downright aggravation.

Everyone seems set on going against everything you think, say, or do, and that's enough to make you pull your hair out.

You may be looking behind you to events that happened long ago, and it's stealing your attention away from the here and now.

Examine the angles and figure out how best to proceed. It won't be easy, but you're a trooper. There's really not a lot that can shove you off balance.

PISCES

Your work and health sectors are going to feel the brunt of this retrograde period in which six planets are zipping every which way in the heavens.

However, for you, these slow downs and frustrations will actually work in your favor, as you'll discover ways to make significant improvements in the ways you've been doing things until now.

As a silver lining, that's a really beneficial one. Don't take anything for granted right now, especially your friends and loved ones.

The changes and refinements you make now will prove quite valuable down the road.
