MOON SEMISQUARE SUN
We may feel as though we are desperately searching for our authentic self under the 6:15 AM Capricorn Moon semisquare Pisces Sun. During a semisquare, celestial bodies are 45˚ apart – literally half of the major astrological aspect, square.
Obstacles may appear in our path at this time requiring a detour. Keep your words and actions aligned. Some may perceive life as a struggle at this time while others find life boring or not challenging enough. Either way, this aspect presents tension, makes us restless and relentlessly reveals areas of our life we find dissatisfying. Remember to be grateful for what you have.
VENUS SEMISQUARE NEPTUNE
6:51 AM Venus in Aquarius semisquare Neptune in rulership Pisces. When a planet is in its rulership, it is currently transiting through the zodiac sign it rules. Each of the 12 signs has a ruling planet with which it shares attributes. In this case, imaginative, heady Neptune rules the visionary dreamer fish, Pisces.
Reality is blurred under this aspect. Make no assumptions because things are likely not as they seem. However, ignorance is bliss. Don’t make any deals today because we are easy to take advantage of in this state, seeing the best in all the we observe and everyone we meet. Creative pursuits are a much better use of this time.
MOON SEXTILE MERCURY
Our mind and emotions are in touch under the 10:56 AM Capricorn Moon sextile Mercury in Pisces. A sextile occurs when celestial bodies are 60˚ apart. This is an easygoing aspect when cosmic energies push us toward the path of least resistance – our true path. We are eager, quick learners under this aspect and capable of incredible productivity. It’s easier than usual to put words to our feelings. Solutions to problems we face are readily available thanks to the harmony of emotion-ruling Moon and intellectual Mercury.
MOON SQUARE URANUS
Change is unavoidable as the Capricorn Moon squares Uranus in Aries at 12:48 PM. A square occurs when celestial bodies form a 90˚ angle with one another, putting their energies at odds. This is an incredibly difficult concept forcing radical change upon us. We are on the cusp of the Aquarius Moon at this time which has us itching for freedom – and with Uranus,
The Moon goes void of course at 12:48 PM until it arrives in Aquarius – in less than 20 minutes. During a void-of-course moon, there are no further astrological aspects occurring under the current sign of transit – Capricorn, in this case. You can think of this time as a lunar lunch break. Make sure you aren’t signing any deals or starting new projects at this time. Just sit back, relax and get back to business in 20 minutes.
Scrap your plans as the Moon enters Aquarius at 1:07 PM and just go with the flow. You never know what’s to come under Aquarius’ influence. Get out and socialize! Individuality is so important to the zodiac’s water bearer. Fearlessly be yourself and ignore the haters. Also, never say “no.” Trying something new can be an incredibly enlightening experience.
MOON SEXTILE CHIRON
When the Aquarius Moon sextiles Chiron at 2:31 PM, we need to seriously reflect on anything that came up under the Moon-Uranus square. The “wounded warrior” comet Chiron orbits between Saturn and Uranus, symbolically connecting our past and future. This aspect suggests even the most irrational choices made today are helping us get back on track with our healing path forward. And for anyone who didn’t feel a need to make a radical change, congratulations! You are just where you need to be (as you always are.) Pay attention to any memories popping up today, as there may be more we need to learn from related past experiences.
MOON SEMISQUARE NEPTUNE
It’s okay to feel a bit out of place today. This isn’t a surprising mood under the hazy 3:10 PM Aquarius Moon semisquare Neptune in rulership Pisces. To fight the feeling of isolation, we try to get closer to others. But don’t pretend to care or feign interest just because you’d rather not be alone. Remember this morning’s existential crisis during the Moon-Sun semisquare? Be true to yourself. Make sure you mean what you say and say what you mean, even if it leads to an uncomfortable feeling of loneliness for the time being.
MOON CONJUNCT VENUS
Set love as your sole intention and nothing will go wrong under the Moon conjuncts Venus in Aquarius at 4:04 PM. When celestial bodies are conjunct, they are separated by 0˚ as appear side-by-side in the sky under the same zodiac sign. Remember what I said about Venus entering Aquarius yesterday? Now is a great time to do something for the ones you love – as long as you are acting from a place of true, genuine love. No deception or manipulation toward yourself and others. If it doesn’t feel 100% right, don’t do it. Being true begins with you.
