July 29: Embark on New Beginnings

The moon enters Sagittarius at 12:25 a.m., and moon void of course ends

Just after midnight, the moon moves into questing Sagittarius, ending the moon void of course passage. This lunar shift sets us up to embark on new beginnings in the morning, and plant seeds that we hope will take root long-term. With the moon in fiery and optimistic Sagittarius, we will have a busy day of inspiration, creativity, and courageous action. It may feel like a refreshing shift after the insular and reflective emotional work that many of us have engaged in while the moon was in Scorpio the past few days. We now feel recharged and ready to direct lunar forces outward, into an exploration of the world around us as much as we are able to.

The moon is trine the sun at 12:47 p.m.

The moon is trine Chiron Rx at 4:33 p.m.

By the afternoon, the bold and boisterous Sagittarius moon forms a grand fire trine with the sun in courageous Leo and Chiron in headstrong Aries. This trine is an activation of the full trifecta of fire signs, awakening new passions and possibilities.

First, an exact trine occurs between the moon and the sun, forming the waxing gibbous lunar phase. This trine brings the bold, emotional awareness of the moment into harmony with the generous forces of Leo season. The afternoon may be ablaze with optimism, opportunity, and inspiration. This lively mood has an emboldening effect on us all, as the moon forms an exact trine with Chiron, the asteroid of healing our ongoing wounds.

Both Sagittarius and Chiron are mythic centaurs, whose intelligence and ingenuity may inspire us to be as multifaceted as these adventurous and inspired beings. We may find that we can face the parts of ourselves that need tending the most with renewed confidence and resilience. This sense of confidence may have a ripple effect, radiating out to restore hope in the collective as we grapple with the realities of systemic wounding in our society.
