October 20: A Fantasy World

The moon is square Neptune Rx at 4:19 a.m.

The moon is trine Mars Rx at 5:08 a.m.

The moon is square Venus at 8:28 a.m.

Early morning, the Sagittarian moon forms an edgy square aspect with boundless Neptune in Pisces. Both Sagittarius and Pisces are ruled by bountiful Jupiter, the planet that leads us on a quest for higher truth. This aspect may feel as though this quest for truth and meaning is pulling us in two different directions. The moon in Sagittarius calls us to explore adventure, while Neptune in Pisces calls us to an inner world of fantasy. Both paths promise us an escape from the mundane, so we may feel a little restless and unsure of which impulse to follow now.

Soon after, the questing Sagittarius moon forms an activating fire trine with Mars retrograde in fearless Aries. This trine aspect adds a jolt of energy and an impulsive mood to the start of the day. It breaks the moon/Neptune square’s dreamy spell, helping us start the day with courage and bold action.

After sunrise, the moon in the Centaur’s sign forms another catalyzing square aspect, this time with Venus in orderly Virgo. The Sagittarius moon is lively and stimulating, while Venus in Virgo is cautious and considered, so this square may amplify our impulses. This aspect may also encourage indulgence, unlikely attraction, or a break from usual routines.


The moon is sextile the sun at 8:38 p.m., and moon void of course begins

The moon enters Capricorn at 11:44 p.m., and moon void of course ends

 By the evening, the Sagittarius moon forms a sextile aspect with the sun in Libra, marking the peak of the waxing crescent lunar phase. At this point, the moon will noticeably gain light toward the second quarter phase. This passage of the moon is activating and lively, made more so by being in adventurous Sagittarius. However, the moon also goes void of course at the same time. We may have energy and enthusiasm this evening, but it’s best not to start a new project just yet.

Just before midnight, the moon leaves roving Sagittarius, for grounded Capricorn. At this point, the moon void of course ends, so the next two days are open for new beginnings. The moon in grounded Capricorn tends to focus and settle our energies, so we may be in the right frame of mind to organize our new endeavors.
