June 16: Quality Over Quantity
The moon enters Taurus at 2:35 a.m., and moon void of course ends
The moon is square Saturn at 4:29 a.m.
In the early morning hours, the lunar mood becomes more earthy and grounded as the moon shifts into Taurus. This lunar placement is the sign of the moon’s exaltation, which is a refinement of lunar energies. The energy of the moment feels abundant and generous, and many of us may be seeking rest, nourishment, and grounding.
After the last few days of the potent Aries moon making many active and stimulating transits, it will be necessary to get back in touch with our bodies, and the rhythm of nature, to reset our cycles. The moon void of course ends, making this time primed to attend to some practical and tangible goals. It may be useful to approach these at a slow, patient Bull’s pace, focusing on quality over quantity as we go down the checklist today.=
Shortly after, the moon forms an edgy square aspect with Saturn in Aquarius, a transit that may rouse some passing feelings of frustration and emotional friction during the early morning hours. Some of us may be feeling restricted and limited today, as this square could lead to feeling discouraged or even a bit depressed. We may also be feeling saddled with many responsibilities as well as too tired to be rigidly disciplined. It may help to lean into the nurturing, grounding energies of the Taurus moon, and be patient with ourselves as we gradually work through today’s tasks.
The moon is conjunct Uranus at 9:15 p.m.
By nightfall, the earthy and steady Taurus moon comes into a conjunction with radical Uranus. This blend of energies may inspire a break from our limitations and routines and could coincide nicely with a time to reward ourselves. Many of us may have a sense of pressure release after the frustration of the Saturn square from earlier in the day, and we may have some sudden insights or creative ideas that we are now ready to explore.
