October 28: An Enthusiastic Vibe
The moon enters Aries at 1:45 a.m., and moon void of course ends
The moon is opposite Venus at 2:32 a.m.
Soon after midnight on Wednesday, the moon leaves insular Pisces to enter explosive Aries. The moon void of course also ends, so the day will be open to embarking on new beginnings. This lunar shift is one of the most palpable in the moon’s cycle, as we emerge from the meditative reflection of Pisces, into the world of conquest and raw urges of Aries. The moon is steadily gaining light, so emotions are running high, and we may be feeling a little more impatient and restless for the next few days. The moon in Aries adds a boost to our vitality, so we may feel inspired to work hard and exercise our bodies.
Later on, the Aries moon shifts into opposition with Venus, who is at home in harmonious Libra. This opposition may intensify feelings of love and attraction, and add an emotional or romantic mood to the early morning hours. Though this aspect becomes exact while most of us are sleeping, it is magnetic and powerful enough to have lingering effects on our energy and mood as we begin the day a few hours later.
This moon/Venus opposition may inspire us to seek out pleasure and enjoyment today. We might also find we have the sudden urge to express bold feelings of love and admiration for someone dear to us in life. At the very least, this opposition adds an upbeat, enthusiastic vibe to the day.
The moon is conjunct Chiron Rx at 1:39 p.m.
After noon, the moon in individualistic Aries forms a conjunction with Chiron, the asteroid of the wounded healer. Every month when the moon comes back to join Chiron for a few hours, we have an opportunity to tune into our deepest wounds with a spirit of courage and direct inquiry. This lunar connection to the Centaur of healing can make us aware of our inner wounding and show up as fleeting yet powerful emotional triggers. These triggers remind us there is still more work to be done on our healing journey.
