August 12: Chatting and Brainstorming
The moon is trine Saturn Rx at 12:55 a.m., and moon void of course begins
The moon enters Gemini at 6:46 a.m., and moon void of course ends
The sun is inconjunct Neptune Rx at 7:32 a.m.
After midnight, the exalted Taurus moon forms an earth trine aspect with stern Saturn in Capricorn. This trine brings the centered and calm lunar mood of the moment in harmony with the trails and limitations that Saturn represents. We may feel personally, and collectively, more supported and resourced now as we work within the realities of our times. This aspect happens overnight and likely not experienced directly, so it may simply indicate a turning point that helps us feel a bit more at peace with current challenges. It’s at this point when the moon goes void of course, which typically is a time of waiting to make new beginnings, but it ends before the day begins, so it is unlikely to present obstacles.
Then, at sunrise, the moon void of course ends as the moon moves into playful and curious Gemini. This passage opens up the day to be active and engaging, and also an opportune time to get started on new ideas or projects that we hope will last long-term. The mood is lively and friendly, and we may feel a bit more upbeat after a few days of rest and recovery with the Taurus moon. Gemini is the air sign of information exchange, so many of us may feel like chatting and brainstorming, or learning a new subject.
The sun in expressive Leo and Neptune in empathic Pisces form an inconjunct angle this morning, causing a mildly uncanny feeling of disconnect. Leo season is all about outward expressions and displays of beauty, while Neptune in Pisces plumbs the unseen meditative depths of the soul. The two energies are active, yet seem to be separate. The mystery is that they do have an indirect connection that is not immediately apparent. This aspect may simply give us a sense that there is more going on behind the surface of reality that is unfolding on its own time.
