New Moon on Monday – Duran Duran and Kaypacha Pele Report from New Paradigm Astrology

It’s a New Moon on Monday  June 3rd 2019 so I get to use this song! 🙂

New Moon on Monday was a hit song for the English New Wave Band Duran Duran in 1984 reaching the Top 10 in the UK and US charts. It was their tenth single and was released on their third album “Seven and the Ragged Tiger”.

The video was set in the village of Noyers in France and was filmed as a kind of mini story where the band members are part of an underground resistance movement called “La Luna” rebelling against a modern oppressive militaristic regime. The female starring in the video was a former “Miss France” from 1980 called Patricia Barzyk. Several variations of the video exist. Longer Version of the video at the bottom of this post. There is a full 17 mini story version of the video but I can’t locate it on the internet.

NEW MOON ON MONDAY – Duran Duran – Song Lyrics

Shake up the picture the lizard mixture
With your dance on the eventide
You got me coming up with answers
All of which I deny
I said it again
But could I please rephrase it
Maybe I can catch a ride
I couldn’t really put it much plainer
But I’ll wait till you decide
Send me your warning siren
As if I could ever hide
Last time La Luna

I light my torch and wave it for the
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

Breaking away with the beast of both worlds
A smile that you can’t disguise
Every minute I keep finding
Clues that you leave behind
Save me from these reminders
As if I’d forget tonight
This time La Luna

I light my torch and wave it for the
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

I light my torch and wave it for the
New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite

New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night (fire dance through the night)
I stayed the cold day with a lonely satellite
(Waiting for the) New moon on Monday
And a fire dance through the night (fire dance through the night)

Makes you want to jump on a motorbike and ride off into the sunset….

The New Moon symbolises New Beginnings, setting new intentions or renewing and or resetting goals.

Will leave you with the most recent Pele Report from Kaypacha. He is a laid back hippie type that travels the world and reports on astronomy and astrology as part of New Paradigm Astrology. So cool to watch, always dressed Bohemian and colourful and is nice and chilled out to listen to, very knowledgeable, always with interesting facts. It’s always fun to see where he pops up next in the world. 🙂
