July 6: Idea Exchanges and Opportunities

The moon is conjunct Saturn Rx at 2:35 a.m., and moon void of course begins

The moon enters Aquarius at 3:08 a.m., and moon void of course ends

In the early hours, the moon joins stern Saturn in pragmatic Capricorn. Although this transit occurs when most of us are sleeping, it marks a passage in the lunar cycle. Emotional caution meets the current serious topics of societal and financial rebuilding. This aspect may symbolize and set in motion deep concerns and melancholy moods. It could even trigger depression in those who are already feeling tired and under-resourced. Fortunately, this passage is brief, as the moon shifts into airy and objective Aquarius shortly after, ending the short moon void of course period. This passage opens the day up for idea exchanges, and opportunities to start new projects or tasks.

The moon is sextile Mars at 12:37 p.m.

The moon is trine Venus at 5:22 p.m.

Shortly after noon, the Aquarian moon shifts into a collaborative sextile aspect with Mars potently placed in assertive Aries. This aspect could have an energizing, uplifting effect on the collective mood by inspiring swift responses and actions in the latter part of the day. There may be an opportunity to clear the air or prompt an engaging discussion that could get heated but will ultimately be constructive. By the late afternoon, any edginess lingering in the air will smooth over as the moon forms a friendly air trine with Venus in lively Gemini. This strongly supportive aspect facilitates good feelings and promotes a sociable, playful, and creative mood in the evening.


The moon is sextile Chiron at 8:26 p.m.

The moon is square Uranus at 9:37 p.m., and moon void of course begins

By nightfall, the moon moves on its course to form a sextile with Chiron in bold Aries, awakening restorative lunar energies and conducting these toward inner healing. The ongoing societal themes of wounds in identity and self-authority feel less insurmountable for the moment. It may be that some of us feel able to express our inner fears and sources of shame in a supportive and therapeutic context. As the night continues, the offbeat Aquarian moon forms an edgy square with Uranus in grounded Taurus, closing out Monday with a restless and uncanny mood. At this point, the next moon void of course begins, which will last until Wednesday. Until then, we can place new plans on the back burner to simmer.
