July 2: Sudden Courage

July 2: Sudden Courage

The moon is opposite Venus at 5:02 a.m.

The moon in questing Sagittarius forms an opposition with Venus in sociable Gemini early in the morning, activating and infusing these first hours of the day with creativity and curiosity. This aspect brings bold, emotional expressions and ideals into polarity with relational issues, which may present an opportunity to bring intense feelings to the surface. Many of us may wake with sudden courage to confront a love matter that needs to be addressed, or find ourselves more able to express what is in our hearts now.

The moon is trine Chiron at 10:20 a.m.

The fiery and active lunar mood connects us with inner wounds when the moon forms a fire trine with Chiron in Aries late morning. It could be that the emotional and relational spontaneity of the early hours opened up release and catharsis. This positive trine aspect may illuminate new awareness and personal confidence. The house that Chiron is transiting in our birth charts describes the area of life that Chiron’s healing symbolism works through, helping us connect with our more profound truths.


The moon is inconjunct the sun at 1:45 p.m.

In the late afternoon, the moon in Sagittarius forms an inconjunct angle with the sun in Cancer. This angle is the middle of the waxing gibbous phase, where the moon is almost full of amplified lunar energies. The somewhat brash and restless emotional mood of the moment is a little out of step with the insular, protective awareness of Cancer season, which may have many of us feeling a little unsettled. Since we are only days away from this month’s full moon/lunar eclipse, there may be a feeling in the air that something momentous is about to occur, which is hard to describe.
