MOON SESQUIQUADRATE CHIRON
Keep a level head during the first aspect of the day: Scorpio Moon sesquiquadrate Chiron retrograde in Aries at 12:43 PM. A sesquiquadrate or sesqui-square occurs when celestial bodies form a 135˚ angle. Sesquiquadrates aggravate sensitivities and salt wounds, making it difficult not to lash out. But the lesson they often teach is things are being blown way out of proportion and it’s time to toughen up.
The “Wounded Healer,” Chiron, is a comet orbiting between Saturn and Uranus, bridging past and future. Chiron is currently retrogade, meaning it appears to be moving backwards in the sky from our vantage point here, on Earth. Of course, Chiron isn’t really moving backwards. Named after a knowledgeable centaur, Chiron guides us toward a path of healing inspired by past trauma.
Currently, Chiron is transiting through fiery Aries. The effects of the headstrong ram suggest we may have a difficult time understanding what lesson life is trying to currently teach us. And with the influence of shadowy Scorpio on emotion-ruler Moon, our wounds are likely darker in nature. More than likely, we will be forced to revisit a memory we would rather keep locked away. Dig at the root. Sometimes, revisiting trauma is the first step on the
MOON TRINE NEPTUNE
Trust your gut under the Scorpio Moon trine Neptune in rulership Pisces at 1:29 PM. Intuition is boosted thanks to these combined energies. When a planet is in its rulership, it means it is currently transiting through the zodiac sign it rules. All 12 zodiac signs are paired with a ruling planet it shares characteristics with. In this case, imaginative Neptune rules dreamy, visionary Pisces.
During a trine, celestial bodies are 120˚ apart, enhancing our natural abilities – even those that have gone neglected. Take a minute to jot down what you remember of any dreams you had last night as well as any daydreams that come to mind today. Now is a good time for heart-to-heart conversations, as we are more capable of fully understanding and expressing our emotions. It’s also a great time for creative projects as our imaginations are running wild.
MOON SEXTILE SATURN
At 4:21 PM, a Scorpio Moon sextile Saturn in rulership Capricorn brings us back to reality and offers a cosmic chill pill to those in need. A sextile occurs when celestial bodies are 60˚ apart and helps us integrate the energies of the involved planets. With the combined powers of responsible Saturn and disciplined Capricorn on our side, it’s a great time to work on our budgets and address financial problems or other serious topics affecting our home life. It is also easier to come out and be honest with loved ones about struggles and/or secrets we’ve been keeping under shadowy Scorpio’s influence on the Moon.
