May 31: Grace and Courage

May 31: Grace and Courage

Moon is trine Jupiter Rx at 2:17 a.m., and moon void of course begins

Moon enters Libra at 7:38 a.m., and moon void of course ends

Moon is trine Saturn Rx at 10:20 a.m.

In the wee hours, the moon in practical Virgo forms an earth trine with expansive Jupiter in pragmatic Capricorn. This may feel like the positive integration of yesterday’s themes, and we may feel encouraged, yet at the same time grounded in light of what was explored in the recent cosmic dynamics.

Then, as the day begins, the moon shifts into peaceable Libra, changing the moon to one lighter and more sociable. The moon void of course also ends, opening up today’s agenda to include new beginnings. What we start working on this Sunday is more likely to take root, and the moon’s supportive air trine with Saturn adds a stabilizing dynamic to the morning activity.

Moon is square Mercury at 2:16 p.m.

Midafternoon, the moon is balanced Libra forms a square aspect with Mercury in Cancer. Though the square aspect is edgy, this exchange between the moon and the planet of messages may simply stimulate lively and emotive discussions. The moon is in a sign that likes to keep matters light and aloof, while Mercury is in a sign that digs into deep emotion, creating a tug of war between these two modes of expression.


Moon is inconjunct Uranus at 9:52 p.m.

Moon is opposite Chiron at 10:09 p.m.

May ends with two late-night aspects that add a little edge and uncanniness to the lunar mood. The moon in blithe Libra is inconjunct Uranus in Taurus, symbolizing that the light, sociable tone of the moment is of step with the radical energies that Uranus works to materialize. The Libran state of peace and harmony does not appreciate shocks and upsets, so there is a little tension in the air that we may want to deny or distract ourselves from.

The moon then forms an opposition with Chiron in Aries, bringing calm emotions into connection with the raw wounds that Chiron symbolizes. These polarizing signs hold two sides of the same coin that are both necessary for long-term healing, grace, and courage.
