October 5: Profound Realizations

October 5: Profound Realizations

The moon is trine Pluto at 5:50 a.m.

Early Monday, the earthy Taurus moon forms a supportive trine aspect with Pluto enduring Capricorn. The moon/Pluto trine brings the moment’s reflective mood and sensory perceptions into harmony with Pluto’s regenerative themes. On an emotional level, we may be able to perceive how Pluto’s transformative powers are bringing hard truths to light so that they can be confronted and understood. This trine can evoke profound realizations or put us in a contemplative mood. We could even expect this grounding earth trine to hone our powers of concentration, promoting an inquiring or investigative state of mind.


The moon is trine Saturn at 11:41 a.m., and moon void of course begins

 Before noon, the exalted Taurus moon forms another earth trine, this time with Saturn at home in patient Capricorn. This trine aspect may have a stabilizing effect on our emotions, helping us to keep these steady and contained. It could evoke a somewhat reflective mood, but this may help us slow down to consider our options or focus on our commitments. Positive moon/Saturn aspects like this one put us in the mood to work and help us buckle down to tie up loose ends, which is in line with the moon’s void of course timing. It’s best not to start anything new for the rest of the day that we hope will endure long term until the moon changes signs tonight.


The moon enters Gemini at 9:03 p.m., and moon void of course ends

The day goes by on a quiet, steady note until the moon shifts into Gemini in the evening. The moon void of course ends, setting up the next two days for planting the seeds for new projects. Even though the moon is in the decreasing, waxing phase, the nighttime mood may feel a little livelier and more kinetic. Gemini is a mutable air sign, meaning it promotes curiosity, idea exchange, and adaptive conversations, so it may inspire late-night chats or an urge to absorb new information.
