May 8: Inspired and Motivated

Moon enters Sagittarius at 12:15 a.m. and moon void of course ends


Just after midnight, the moon leaves Scorpio’s deep, brooding waters for Sagittarius’ fiery expanses, and the moon’s void of course ends. For the next couple of days, the lunar mood will shift into one more lively, playful, and spontaneous. 


This will feel refreshing and uplifting after the potent full moon passage, and all that came to light from the inner depths. Sagittarius is a questing, roving, truth-seeking sign, so it may inspire us to explore our world and relationships in an expansive way, as much as our current limitations allow. It could be a good day to get some exercise to cleanse and rejuvenate us after a moody few days.

Moon is sextile Saturn at 3:27 a.m.


A few hours later, the moon forms a sextile aspect with Saturn in Aquarius, blending fire and air into a potent but productive mix. Saturn adds some stability to the bold emotional expressions of the Sagittarius moon, and we may wake up feeling inspired and motivated. The morning may be spent engaging in activities that are more outward focused, as we allow our inner tides to settle and calm down for a while. Much has come up in our potent reflections lately that has given us a fresh perspective, and new ideas on how to approach our work and relationships. Today may hold opportunities to express our creativity effectively.



Moon is inconjunct Uranus at 12:15 p.m.

Moon is trine Chiron at 1:04 p.m.


In the early afternoon, the moon in active Sagittarius forms an inconjunct angle with Uranus in rooted Taurus. This may add a little edge and restlessness to the afternoon. Shortly after, the moon forms a fire trine with Chiron in primal Aries, opening up an opportunity to engage with the themes of soul healing in a potent, yet productive way. The catharsis of the past few days may leave us with a feeling that we are breaking new ground on our untended wounds, personally and collectively.
