This is also a new Moon or the Amāvasyā/ Amavasya Tithi where the luminaries are joined and material themes reign supreme. However the Moon is completely dark and the cool nectar which is usually associated with it is missing. Both the Kṛṣṇa Pakṣa Caturdaśī/ Krishna Paksha Chaturdashi and the Amāvasyā/ Amavasya are malefic Tithis requiring propitiation in the natal horoscope.
This is evidenced by the apparent suicide of Ariel Castro, the Cleveland kidnapper and rapist convicted and sentenced to life plus a thousand years, on Tuesday, the 3rd of September, 2013 when the Moon was terribly afflicted by association with a debilitated Mars and the Graha Dṛṣṭi/ Drishti/ planetary aspect of Saturn from Libra. His heart (Cancer where the Moon was transiting) might have seen the truth of his acts and of his life.
Though Ariel Castro's precise time of birth is not known, one way to rectify the Lagna would be to place either Gurū/ Guru or Cañdra/ Chandra in the 3rd Bhāva/ Bhava from the Ārūḍha/ Arudha Lagna in the Rāśi/ Rashi.
Back to the 4th of September-
Mercury or Budha is also joined though it is speeding towards Kanyā Rāśi/ Kanya Rashi its sign of exaltation. So is Śukra/ Shukra/ Venus moving towards Libra/ Tulā Rāśi/ Tula Rashi and when reckoned with the Sun in Leo, we have several planets in own, Mūlatṛkoṇa/ Moolatrikona or exaltation signs. This is a position where strength, excellence, endeavour, ambition and aspiration can manifest better.
The chart showing the transit of the Moon in Leo/ Simha Lagna is given below for reference-
There appear to be no active adverse influences on the Moon through Graha Dṛṣṭi/ Drishti/ planetary aspect. So, the result is that the social interaction will be at a big, heightened level and commerce, money, communication, work options and resources, funding, personal power will be some of the themes based on which the events shall be enacted.
