July 15: Harmony, Protection, and Healing
The moon is sextile Neptune Rx at 4:16 a.m.
The moon is trine Jupiter Rx at 6:56 a.m.
The moon is sextile the sun at 9:50 a.m.
The moon is trine Pluto Rx at 10:01 a.m.
Wednesday’s early hours are active with supportive lunar aspects, which may symbolize helpful emotional connections and new progress. First, the moon in steady Taurus forms a sextile with retrograde Neptune, inspiring exploration of a mystical and soulful mood of transcendence from a grounded place. The moon then forms a beneficial earth trine with Jupiter in practical Capricorn, helping us to feel centered and cautiously optimistic.
Later in the morning, the moon engages in a collaborative sextile with the sun in nurturing Cancer, forming the waning crescent phase of the lunar cycle. This phase is a moment where the feelings of the moment come into complementary harmony with the Cancerian energies of protection and healing. By the late morning, the moon forms an earth trine with Pluto in determined Capricorn, bringing abundant and patient emotional awareness into harmony with the potent transformations of this year. We may feel somewhat restored and recharged and ready to do our inner work with renewed perseverance.
The sun is opposite Pluto Rx at 12:13 p.m.
Just after noon, the sun in sensitive Cancer forms an opposition with subterranean Pluto in conservational Capricorn. This aspect brings the themes of protection, healing, and compassion face-to-face with the irreversible, foundational changes of our times. Like yesterday’s sun/Jupiter opposition, this aspect has the potential to be a showdown, or a recalibration, or maybe even a bit of both. We are now applying personal and collective energies to face some hard truths that are resurfacing this year. The sun in Cancer represents these shadowy realities being met with compassion, transmuting difficulties into lasting change.
The moon is trine Saturn Rx at 8:21 p.m., and the moon void of course begins
The moon enters Gemini at 10:19 p.m., and the moon void of course ends
By evening, the moon shifts into a grounding earth trine with Saturn, now retrograde, in Capricorn. This supportive aspect brings the steady emotions of the moment into harmony with rebuilding and restructuring our society. It’s at this point, the moon void of course begins for a few hours, so it can be an excellent time to pull back and reflect before charging forward. It’s a great window to draw up a strategy, make a list, and get organized for the next day. Late night, the lunar mood shifts into one more social and active as the balsamic moon moves into curious Gemini. Many of us may feel a restless buzz tonight, and as the moon void of course ends, we may have many new ideas to explore over the next two days.
