July 23: Meaningful Connections

The moon is trine Uranus at 10:16 a.m.

The moon is sextile Mercury at 11:47 a.m.

Late morning, the moon in demure Virgo forms an earth trine with Uranus in luxury-loving Taurus. This aspect is a unique blend of eccentric energy and earthy dependability. The mood of the moment is set by the Virgo moon’s pragmatic yet busy quality, which works well with Uranus’ push toward adaptation and invention. It may be a morning of inspired musings and emotional insights that are sudden, yet easy to integrate and materialize. This ease rolls into the moon’s next aspect, a collaborative sextile with swift Mercury in emotive Cancer. This sextile aspect presents a great opportunity to send messages, as our intentions are more likely to get across now. It’s a time to blend Virgo’s attention to detail, with Cancer’s nurturing compassion to connect meaningfully.


The moon is square Venus at 10:46 p.m.

The rest of the day and evening goes by quietly, until the late-night square between the waxing moon in analytical Virgo and Venus in restless Gemini. A square between the moon and Venus is not typically as hard and unforgiving as with other planets, since the moon and Venus are all about body care, healing, and sensuality.


This square may feel a little different since speedy Mercury rules both Virgo and Gemini. Both signs tend to set up some anxious feelings, with Virgo precipitating worry and Gemini spreading itself too thin. Together in this edgy square, they set the scene for a wakeful night, laying in bed, perhaps visualizing, analyzing, and rehearsing our next moves. Taking time to breathe deeply and getting down from our heads into our bodies can help to ground and release tension. Channel a busy or overactive mind into a fun book, and sip on tea made from Mercury’s herbs like lavender and fennel to calm digestion or nervousness.
