July 5: Connecting Emotionally and Spiritually

July 5: Connecting Emotionally and Spiritually

The moon is sextile Neptune at 10:44 a.m.

The moon in stoic Capricorn moves into a helpful sextile aspect with Neptune in Pisces late this morning, connecting the current mood of emotional realism with the realm of dreams and collective transcendence. The sextile this morning is a unique opportunity to realign with our hopes and ideals after yesterday’s string of cathartic and cleansing planetary aspects.

In the space cleared by yesterday’s eclipse, we may begin to visualize a new path forward, fostering healthy communities in our world. This morning could be an excellent time to examine our dreams for the future by connecting emotionally and spiritually to our highest values. It’s these values and truths that can help us stay centered as we navigate the ongoing challenges of this year.


The moon is conjunct Jupiter at 3:13 p.m.

The moon is conjunct Pluto at 4:14 p.m.

By late afternoon, the Capricorn moon forms a conjunction with Jupiter and Pluto. These aspects bring the emotional realities of the moment together with this year’s themes of cautious optimism, calculated risk, and irreversible global change. The cosmic weather of the past few days has been extraordinarily active. It has been an awakening and catalyzing start to July, opening new awareness and promoting action. This afternoon may be a time to take stock of the emotional resources that we have and think of ways to prioritize more self-care.

This year has brought so much to adapt to, causing fatigue and overload. Though there is so much work to be done to support substantial growth and rebuilding in our society and our lives, we will make our best efforts if we take time to recharge and pace ourselves for the long haul. The types of changes and evolutions that Jupiter and Pluto are pointing to are long-term processes, so patience, resiliency, and resourcefulness are needed now.
