May 27: Directing Our Motivations

Moon is opposite Saturn Rx at 2:42 a.m.

The moon in flashy Leo moves into an opposition with Saturn in Aquarius. This transit will occur when most of us are sleeping, so it may not be felt or observed directly. It may set a bit of an uneasy tone to the morning, indicating some emotional friction, or a kind of stalemate between wanting to feel expressive and free, and the burden of limitations and responsibilities for now.

Moon is sextile sun at 12:02 p.m.

Moon is square Uranus at 2:34 p.m.

At noon, the bold and expressive Leo moon forms a sextile with the sun in curious Gemini. This is a harmonious blend between emotions and intentions, which may heighten activity and inspire action. The moon is in the waxing crescent phase now, beginning to gain light and energy as the new lunar cycle continues, so Wednesday may be a turning point for many of us.

Inspiration is in the air, and a clearer idea of what to work on next may be forming mid-week. Soon after, the moon in proud Leo forms a square with Uranus in grounded Taurus, causing a bit of friction, and perhaps a little frustration as well. This is a fleeting but emotionally volatile aspect, which may represent the yearning to act quickly, but a feeling that some intentions could be getting off to a chaotic start. The vibe is stimulating, and it may take some energy to harness and handle it.

Moon is trine Chiron at 3:00 p.m.

Moon is inconjunct Mars at 5:36 p.m.

The moon in bold Leo forms a fire trine with Chiron in Aries in the midafternoon, adding courage and support to our work on soul healing. Something is emboldening about the upbeat, enthusiastic mood, that feels encouraging and inspiring.

Late afternoon, the moon forms an inconjunct angle with Mars in receptive Pisces. This can symbolize the Leo fiery enthusiasm being temporarily disconnected from the drive and action Mars would typically provide. The two are out of sync, and it may take a conscious effort to direct our motivations in a clear direction this evening.
