February 9: The moon enters Virgo, and is trine Uranus



The moon is trine Mars at 8:08 a.m.

Early this morning the upbeat Leo moon, still quite full of light and energy, comes into a fire trine aspect with Mars in enthusiastic Sagittarius. This starts the sun’s day off with heat and inspiration that lends itself to a morning of activity and movement. Leo is ruled by the sun, so rising to meet the day with a series of yogic sun-salutations could be a wonderful way to honor the life-giving solar forces of nature and stoke our own energy. In harmony with the forces of action and drive that Mars contributes, we feel ready to take initiative and move forward with courage and confidence with our plans.

The moon enters Virgo at 3:39 p.m.

In the late afternoon, the moon shifts from spicy Leo into considerate Virgo, cooling our passions and directing our initiative into practical, constructive activities. Virgo is a receptive sign, so the lunar mood and emotive forces of the day turn back inward to thought, analysis, and strategy. The sign of mother nature inspires natural healing, therefore getting connected to plant allies can be a wonderful opportunity to kick back and enjoy a calming herbal tea (lemon balm or lavender would be best), while we make our checklists for the week.


The Moon is trine Uranus at 8:31 p.m.

Tonight, the earthy and organized Virgo moon comes into a supportive trine aspect with radical Uranus in Taurus. Collected and considered emotive forces flow in harmony with the forces of change, adaptation, and innovation; and we may find new ways to solve some ongoing puzzles when it comes to our material needs and resources. The house in our chart that Uranus is passing through is undergoing a seven-year reinvention, area that the current lunar mood helps understand on an emotional level.
