July 10: Realizing Visions

July 10: Realizing Visions

The moon is conjunct Neptune Rx at 3:57 a.m.

The moon is sextile Jupiter Rx at 7:47 a.m.

Friday, July 10, is bustling with cosmic activity, beginning with the early hours’ merger of the waning moon with illusory Neptune in mystic Pisces. This conjunction opens up the creative and intuitive currents in the ethers to channel our highest ideals and visions down to earth. The moon conjunct Neptune adds an imaginative and day-dreaming mood to the morning, expanding somewhat when the moon forms a sextile aspect with Jupiter in sturdy Capricorn a few hours later. The creative and transcendent visions of the wee hours may begin to look like possibilities on a material level, tempered with the awareness that the work to realize these visions will be gradual.


The moon is sextile Pluto at 9:52 a.m.

Venus is sextile Chiron at 11:37 a.m.

As the morning continues, the waning moon in Pisces forms a harmonious sextile with Pluto in stoic Capricorn. This aspect brings hard, hidden truths buried in the psyche up to the surface so we can work through these through constructively. This melding of intuition and introspection sets the stage for the sextile between Venus in active Gemini, and Chiron in potent Aries just before noon. After a long retrograde passage, our collective journey with Venus continues forward to support the theme of ongoing healing of chronic wounds. Venus’ healing and cohesive powers help many of us access and integrate a deeper awareness of ourselves and how our ways of relating need consistent tending and care.

The moon is sextile Saturn Rx at 8:49 p.m., and moon void of course begins

The moon enters Aries at 10:06 p.m., and moon void of course ends

Just before sundown, the soulful Piscean moon forms its last aspect before going void of course, and that is a sextile with Saturn in pragmatic Capricorn. This sextile is a harmonious and constructive blending of powerful intuition with structure and practicality. It has a way of steadying the boundless and nebulous qualities of the current lunar mood, harnessing these forces so that they may become more tangible.

The moon void of course ends just over an hour later when the moon joins Mars and Chiron in battle-ready Aries. The lunar mood now shifts into one more active, impulsive, and outwardly propelling for the next two days.
