July 13: Recharge and Restore
The moon is square Saturn Rx at 8:54 a.m., and moon void of course begins
The moon enters Taurus at 10:34 a.m., and moon void of course ends
As the day opens, the waning moon in the last degrees of fiery Aries forms a square aspect with stern Saturn in Capricorn. This aspect is a rather difficult one, and is an echo to the frustrations and edgy feelings we will face in higher intensity when Mars forms a square with Saturn in Capricorn this fall. Specific topics are beginning to urgently bubble up in our personal and emotional awareness today that are hard to ignore.
Saturn, now retrograde, represents a return to structure and order in our society, yet so much has broken open it will be difficult to put our world back the way it was. The Aries moon represents the underlying anger and outrage that is still unresolved, that must be contended with before we can truly make progress. It’s important to note that the moon is now void of course, so if frustrations are running high, wait a couple of hours before taking decisive action if you want its effects to last.
Later in the morning, the moon moves into grounded and abundant Taurus, and the moon void of course ends. This sign shift will likely be palpable, and a mood of calm and patience will settle in after the exertions and frustrations of the past few days. The moon is exalted in Taurus, meaning she has particular potency and strong restorative powers. The next two days will be an excellent opportunity to recharge, rest, and nourish ourselves. Activist burn-out is real, so it’s important to ride the tides of work and rest so that we can continue our progress through the remainder of this unprecedented year.
The moon is sextile Mercury at 9:56 p.m.
Late at night, the steady moon in Taurus forms a collaborative sextile with Mercury in caring Cancer. This aspect symbolizes an excellent opportunity to reopen hard conversations from earlier in the week from a calmer, more grounded place. We will likely find more receptivity on the other end.
