May 2: Unique Insights and Unexpected Luck

Moon trine Uranus at 10:19 a.m.

Moon inconjunct Chiron at 11:13 a.m.


The day begins with an earth trine aspect between the moon in considerate Virgo and Uranus in grounded Taurus. This potentially brings lunar and emotive energies into phase with the radical undercurrent of our times. Since the trine aspect is supportive, it opens opportunities to express our emotions and access insights that are unique. The element of earth grounds us in our day-to-day routines and material matters, so a new way to arrange our flow may emerge. 


About an hour later, the moon forms an exact inconjunct angle with Chiron, highlighting a fleeting passage of trying to anchor our inner healing work to a practical, tangible solution. This may feel a little elusive… for now.

Moon is trine Mercury at 4:38 p.m.


In the late afternoon, the moon in analytical, yet receptive Virgo forms an earth trine with Mercury in abundant Taurus. Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, and the moon is exalted in Taurus, so a very interesting mutual exchange occurs with this aspect, amplifying the positive energies of both planets involved. 


This could be a wonderful window in which to be articulate, coming from a very grounded place emotionally when having discussions. There could be some unexpected luck to tap into, and the mood is likely to be calm and assured.

Moon is trine the sun at 8:40 p.m.


By the evening, the moon in Virgo shifts into a trine with the sun, who shares Taurus with Mercury and Uranus now. This harmonizing trine between the luminary of the day, and the luminary of the night, brings the practical and articulate discussions of the moment into phase with our energies. 


This trine between the moon and the sun forms the waxing gibbous phase of the lunar cycle, a time of ramping up the themes and explorations of the month. There may be a way we can ride this rising lunar tide by using the earthy momentum of the day to organize ourselves.
