Mercury is inconjunct Saturn Rx at 5:25 p.m.

Mercury, the swift planet of messages forms an inconjunct angle, highlighting a challenge to blend the communications of the moment with the dry, aloof, yet stern character that Saturn presents in Aquarius. The demands that societal restructuring puts on us now need to be informed by compassionate thought and care. The two objectives feel somewhat disconnected, and it takes some work to harmonize these today.


Moon is trine Uranus at 7:15 p.m.

Moon is inconjunct Chiron at 7:36 p.m.

Moon is square Sun at 8:30 p.m.

The moon in practical Virgo forms an earth trine aspect in the evening with radical Uranus in Taurus, and the receptive mood of the moment feels in step with the changes of our times. Some emotional breakthroughs may present tonight, and also some new clarity on how to innovate with resources and other material concerns. At the same time, the moon is inconjunct Chiron, a bit adrift from the deeper concerns of soul healing, emphasizing a focus on more immediately useful tasks to help promote a sense of security.

Later on, the moon in Virgo forms a square aspect with the sun in Gemini, beginning the second quarter phase of the lunar cycle. This is a period of catalyzing action that continues to ramp up toward the full moon in Sagittarius on June 5.
