August 2: Mysterious Feelings

August 2: Mysterious Feelings

The moon is opposite Mercury at 1:53 a.m.

The sun is square Uranus at 4:19 a.m.

The moon is conjunct Saturn Rx at 6:59 a.m., and moon void of course begins

The moon enters Aquarius at 11:11 a.m., and moon void of course ends

All of Sunday’s planetary aspects occur before noon, giving the morning a busy, active feeling. Just after midnight, the Capricorn moon forms an opposition with Mercury in Cancer. This early morning aspect may help us verbalize some of the deep and mysterious feelings from last night’s moon/Pluto conjunction.

A few hours later, the sun in regal Leo forms a square aspect with Uranus in steady Taurus. This passage hints at a clash between our personal needs and individual expression, as well as issues of managing material resources. Both Leo and Taurus are fixed signs, making for an early morning of frustrations and stubborn stand-offs.

After sunrise, the moon joins Saturn in authoritative Capricorn. This conjunction is an extension of the low mood that many of us may have been struggling with lately. The moon in Capricorn symbolizes emotional reserve and blockages in expression, and Saturn’s heavy presence only intensifies these feelings.

The day begins with a weighted mood, when it may be challenging to stay optimistic and hopeful. It could be an excellent time to retreat and suspend any conversation if it feels like too much of an energetic drain. Instead, a time of contemplation can help us sort out what is going on for us now, without the pressure to be emotive. However, if this process feels too burdensome to shoulder alone, it’s not a sign of weakness if we need to reach out for help. The moon is now void of course for a few hours, so it’s important to wait a while before starting any new projects.

A few hours later, the moon shifts into eccentric Aquarius, thankfully lightening the vibe. The moon void of course passage also ends, opening up the rest of the day to feel productive, or to plant seeds that we hope will take root. The airy Aquarian moon can create a more offbeat and social mood when we are more externally focused and less withdrawn.
