July 28, 2022 ~ New Moon in Leo and Wild Card Energy

I had this scheduled for a week prior to the New Moon in Leo, but I feel led to share it sooner. I will repost closer to the time. You may have noted all the resignations occurring around the time of the July 13, 2022 Full Moon in Capricorn. These track with the Sabian Symbol and many of the themes I discussed in my post. As Dane Rudhyar said, “Astrology is a language. If you understand this language, the sky speaks to you.”

The sky uses a megaphone these days! I post this information not to cause fear but to give people a heads up to prepare yourselves for big changes ahead. Vibration, location, level of consciousness, and your own natal chart make a huge difference, but we are in chaotic times. Proceed accordingly.

My July 2022 Forecast notes:

July 28 New Moon in Leo, 1:55 p.m. Eastern. Less than three hours later, Jupiter stations retrograde in Aries. Through the course of this retrograde until November 23, expansive Jupiter will cross back over the World Axis as he moves into Pisces to finish up whatever got triggered by April’s Jupiter-Neptune conjunction and the April 30th Beltane Eve, New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse. This July 28 New Moon in Leo closely conjuncts the US natal chart’s North Node — another high-impact trigger. Meanwhile, the transiting (collective) North Node presses Uranus in Taurus as Mars lights a fuse from the other side. Warrior and Revolutionary have their date with Destiny. Add to this the Delta Aquarid meteor shower from July 28-29, and we’ve got the Eight of Wands in Tarot. It’s Wild Card energy: shock and awe, Divine intervention, events that rewrite history.

For additional context I included more on the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction:

July 31 the triple conjunction peaks in Taurus. This Mars-Uranus-North Node transit spans a week prior through a week after but peaks from July 31st – August 1. This is already a potent magical time of very thin veils. August 1 marks the traditional celebration of Lammas or Lughnasadh. In Celtic tradition, the Eve of a cross quarter day is even more powerful than the day itself. This turn of the Wheel of the Year celebrates diverse skills coming together as one and is the first of three harvest festivals.

It would be difficult to overstate the monumentality of all these energies converging at the same time. In a natal chart, the North Node represents one of the key destiny points — how and where the soul intends to develop. In the natal chart of a nation, the North Node marks the destiny of that nation. To have the US North Node receive a precise activation at the same time of the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction feels significant due to the double North Node activity. Mars, Uranus and the transiting North Node have not all come together since 1855, and now they join in context of a New Moon that brings a fresh start to the US destiny point.

All of this occurs with the first US Pluto Return churning away in the background. Questions of identity arise as this combination brings huge pressure and opportunity to begin again.

According to Dane Rudhyar, the Sabian Symbol for this New Moon and the US natal North Node is:


KEYNOTE: The need to transcend our subservience to fashion, in morals as well as in clothes.

This refers to the ever-changing pageant of social values, as ideals of human relationship succeed one another, one generation facing in the next an antithetic picture of what it has been brought up to consider worthwhile and decent. The confrontation may lead to great bitterness, yet it should show us the impermanence of most of what society impresses upon our collective mentality.

This is the first stage of the twenty-sixth five-fold sequence of phases of the cyclic process. We are dealing now with cultural values and the emotional impact they have upon our character formation. Whereas the first degree of Leo dealt with an individual crisis of reorientation, the sixth degree refers to a collective, cultural and social crisis which challenges us to realize THE RELATIVITY OF SOCIAL VALUES.

In addition to the New Moon in Leo conjuncting the US North Node, the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction occurs within one degree of the US natal Vesta — keeper of the flame. This reminds me of the Statue of Liberty holding her torch. In a natal chart, Vesta represents that which we hold most sacred, the flame tended by “Vestal Virgins.” Vesta takes devotion to even higher levels. It’s not just emotional, but a spiritual process. In layman’s terms: this chaotic, liberating, rare, destiny level, triple conjunction reignites that which the United States of America holds most sacred.

Different people will have different answers for what that most sacred thing is, but astrologically, this mega conjunction is an even bigger deal to the US than it is to the rest of the world. The Sabian Symbol for 20° Taurus provides further insight into the US natal Vesta:


KEYNOTE: The awareness of spiritual forces at work.

It concludes a process, having experienced which the individual should find themselves more securely established in their own original nature, receiving the BLESSINGS of super-natural forces.

The Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction occurs in the prior degree, and we find this hopeful Sabian Symbol that also reminds me of the original vision of America as “A New Atlantis”:


KEYNOTE: The surge of new potentiality after the crisis.

The symbol need hardly be commented upon. When the mind has been emptied and light has been called upon to purify the consciousness freed from its attachment and contaminations, a new release of life can emerge out of the infinite Ocean of potentiality, the Virgin SPACE. What will it be used for?  [You can read the rest of the description here.]

Collectively, individually and for the US, this triple conjunction bodes well. It brings an opportunity for purification and new potential. If we see fires and riots, these will purge old energies in preparation for “the infinite Ocean of potentiality.” If we feel turmoil within ourselves, we’ll find rewards for completing our own cleansing process.

As mentioned, between the New Moon and the triple conjunction, comes the Delta Aquarid meteor shower. To me, this seems like the “Age of Aquarius” arriving through the Eight of Wands. I love the Robin Wood version of this card:

Robin Wood Tarot: Eight of Wands

In her (highly recommended) Tarot Teachings series, Avia Venefica uses “fire drill” imagery to describe the Eight of Wands, aka the Eight of Rods: “Stop, drop and roll.” She also calls this card “a return to our personal integrity and getting back to basics. As we’ve progressed through the story of the rods and the plight to ‘carry the torch’ for our causes of passion and creation, the eight of wands is a pause on that path.”

There’s that torch/flame imagery again. I like her analogy of a fire drill — especially in context of fiery Mars conjuncting lightning bolt Uranus and the North Node. As sudden changes loom on the horizon, we can benefit from preparation. Avia continues:

When the eight of rods shows up in your readings, I invite you to do the same:

  • Stop:
    Get quiet. Stop taking action. Reevaluate the situation. Those pastoral scenes in the card are an invitation to breathe deep and take in the magnificent bounty and beauty available to us if we would but stop to be aware of it.
  • Drop:
    Hunker down deep into the recesses of your soul and rest in silence. Drop your consciousness into the endless, timeless nature that is both beginning and end. Those of you who meditate know what I mean by this. Dive deep into the well that is the Absolute and Infinite. Why? Because that is where we receive our next instruction; our next call to action.
  • Roll:
    If we’ve stopped and dropped, we now know in what direction to roll. And, odds are, we’ll be divinely guided to roll in the path of least resistance, leading to our best interests. Those tranquil waters running through the eight of wands indicate our best action is surrender to the pull of a higher current. It’s a faith thing.

If events feel chaotic or like they’re moving too fast, remember to breathe. Inspiration comes through the breath. Pay attention to nudges ahead of time, too. If you feel led to stock up on extra food and water, follow through on those nudges. We don’t want to get stuck in fear, but sometimes anxious feelings help us position ourselves in order to experience a preferred unfolding of reality.

  1. Laura, I don’t know if you saw in the New York Post they had stop-drop-roll as an exercise for a nuclear incident, in a public service ad.
    You are such a blessing. Gratitude to you for all you do.

    • For some reason this comment only just now showed up! So sorry for the delay. It just remained in “pending” without showing up in the normal way. I did NOT see that article. Thanks for the link and comment. So glad these posts help. 🙂

      I am beyond dismayed by the U.S. propaganda machine calmly prepping us for a nuclear bomb attack. What the F people? Almost seems like the draconian pndemic response was used to bludgeon people into submission until fear and compliance are the default. (Ya think?) Now they suggest using the most heinous, armageddon-inducing weapons ever conceived, and nobody blinks. Stop, drop and roll, indeed.

      • Yeah, if people haven’t woken up to the Pravda machine by now, I’m not sure what will wake them up. I can’t believe anyone still watches mainstream anything, but here we are. Perhaps this transit will shift some things.

        • To clarify: I can believe people keep an eye on things, because it’s wise to keep an eye on what the psychopaths have planned … but I can’t believe so many people still take things seriously! I use mainstream “news” as an exercise in no, not this, something better.

    We have had a few key employees resign between the 8th and 13th.

    I feel another time of sorting here, like the sorting hat in Harry Potter is handing out new assignments. 🧙‍♀️

    • Very much so! Sorting is the name of the game. It also feels like my dream I had with the “special mandala floors to get everyone where they need to go in the event of an earthquake.” The floors tipped to shift everyone in the direction they needed to go, and there were many new alignments as a result of different people coming together from disparate parts — whether locally or through international moves. It’s like someone turned the Rubik’s cube.

        A Rubik’s cube, that’s the perfect example. The Global Vibration as a whole needs to get to a very specific place/combination. 🤔

  6. Reblogged this on Laura Bruno's Blog and commented:

    Just a reminder: we are in THIS week! I can tell people are feeling the intensity by how busy I am with sessions, especially emergency requests and sudden crises. Remember to breathe. Chaos brings new timelines and possibilities that weren’t possible with the old, familiar energies. This can be a good time.
