July 30: Channel the Abundant Energy

The moon is trine Mars at 7:02 a.m.

Mercury is opposite Jupiter Rx at 7:17 a.m.

Mercury is trine Neptune Rx at 11:45 a.m.

Thursday morning opens with a fire trine between the waxing moon in ebullient Sagittarius and assertive Mars in Aries. The day begins on a bold and confident note, and we may feel inspired to take on the world in a new way. Though supportive, this aspect is hot and enthusiastic, so we may also need to channel the abundant energy it induces into physical activities. Taking precautions to keep us safe so that we can move, exercise, and explore will give us a sense of freedom and renewal.

Today may also hold opportunities to speak our minds and hearts with clarity and directness, as the trine between the moon and Mars facilitates emotional confidence. The mood of the moment is lively, and somewhat spicy, but is unlikely to be confrontational since the trine aspect is positive and supportive.

Not long after, Mercury in protective Cancer forms an opposition with Jupiter in steady Capricorn, bringing conversations to a head around emotional and material topics. Jupiter in Capricorn has set the stage for financial challenges this year and highlights an ongoing need to be resourceful. Mercury is not only the planet of ideas and communication, but also classically rules over markets and currencies. Today’s opposition may represent a turning point in how our resources are being managed and allocated now. We may find ourselves in conversations about restructuring our financial goals, while collectively, there may be new developments in our health care systems and economy. Mercury’s water trine with Neptune in selfless Pisces will keep these conversations and negotiations centered on healing and protection for all.

The moon is square Neptune Rx at 12:20 p.m.

The moon is opposite Venus at 5:08 p.m., and moon void of course begins

In the early afternoon, a somewhat escapist and illusory mood takes over, as the Sagittarius moon forms a disorienting square aspect with Neptune in oceanic Pisces. Though lunar energies are charged and active, these may get a little dispersed and misdirected now while trying to focus. It’s an aspect that is better for creative, free-form projects where logic and details are not needed. This foggy mood gets amplified as the moon forms an opposition with Venus in kinetic Gemini, another aspect of indulgence and play. It is just as well, since the moon void of course begins now, which is not a good time for making concrete decisions or steady beginnings.
