October 12: Visions Become Reality
Jupiter is sextile Neptune Rx at 12:06 a.m.
The moon is sextile the sun at 4:09 a.m.
A few minutes after midnight, expansive Jupiter in Capricorn forms a collaborative sextile aspect with transcendent Neptune in Pisces. Both planets have a boundary dissolving quality and together may heighten our dreams, ideas, and visions. This aspect is the final of three sextiles that these big planetary players will form this year. The last Jupiter/Neptune sextile occurred on July 27, when Jupiter was retrograde. Now that Jupiter is moving direct, anything we envisioned at the end of July may become a reality now.
A few hours later, the Leo moon and Libra sun form a sextile aspect, bringing the moment’s bold mood into harmony with the equanimous perceptions of the season. This aspect also forms the waning crescent phase of the lunar cycle when the moon empties its light on its way to the new moon phase of October 16. It’s a time when our energies may start to wind down as we finish this lunar cycle’s last intentions.
The moon is trine Mars Rx at 7:29 a.m., and moon void of course begins
Mercury is sextile Venus at 9:39 a.m.
At sunrise, the moon in expressive Leo forms a potent fire trine with Mars in driven Aries. This aspect is the last the moon makes before changing signs, so the moon void of course begins now. This moon/Mars fire trine may stimulate and amplify our emotions, but since the trine is harmonious, this may feel more refreshing than challenging.
Later on, a genuinely auspicious sextile connection happens between Mercury in intuitive Scorpio and Venus in dexterous Virgo. This aspect is favorable for loving, compassionate, and intimate conversations. These conversations may feel incredibly supportive and clarifying. This Mercury/Venus connection also provides literary inspiration and maybe a good time to progress on a writing project.
The moon enters Virgo at 9:56 p.m., and moon void of course ends
The day ends with the waning crescent moon’s shift out of hot and active Leo into cool and collected Virgo. This lunar shift ends the moon void of course phase, so the next two days are good for new beginnings. The moon in Virgo brings a grounded, wise vibe to the cosmic weather that helps us get organized and settled.
