This is going to be a pretty wet week, according to our resident long term weather forecast gnome. First, in the interior western states (Nevada and the like), the New Moon in Cancer, a moist sign, falls right on the ascendant. When I was traveling in Europe a few weeks ago, I experienced firsthand the meaning of a lunation in a moist sign (Gemini) falling on angles: it rained torrentially much of the time. At least I was somewhat prepared!

The horoscope for the New Moon of July 14, set for San Francisco, California, is below:

At the very least, depending on the locale, there will be fog or clouds, and for any locations where summer rain is at least a possibility, it will very likely manifest at this time. The old texts say that the last 10° of Cancer are actually very dry, so perhaps the forecast isn’t quite as gloomy as all that. However, it doesn’t get any moister than Cancer. The wetness will peak on July 17 and 18th, when the transiting Moon conjoins the Cancer Ingress ascendant, and the lunation fourth house cusp, respectively. At least these two dates don’t fall on a weekend.

The second interesting element here is Mercury in Cancer on the ascendant, just leaving second station. Mercury in Cancer would bring us colder winds, especially around the 21st of July, when it conjoins the ascendant of this lunation horoscope. Mercury also rules the all-important fourth house cusp, further underscoring its influence for the week.

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for following this! When I saw the rain on the 18th, I thought: “Wow! That never happens here!” The post on the Cancer Ingress talks about possible earthquakes in July, though I never thought to pin it down to the day. But the lunation with Mercury conj Ascendant would do it for sure.
