September 11: Transcendent States and Visions

September 11: Transcendent States and Visions

The moon enters Cancer at 1:23 a.m., and moon void of course ends

The lively lunar mood cools down, becoming more insular and receptive as the moon leaves busy Gemini to enter its home sign Cancer. The moon void of course also ends now so that the day will be open for new beginnings and initiatives. Now that the moon is in Cancer for the next two days, we may feel more like retreating and recharging, as the moon’s regenerative powers are at their peak in the nocturnal sign of the Crab. Emotions and intuition are heightened, and we may feel a bit more self-protective and private.


The sun is opposite Neptune Rx at 1:26 p.m.

The moon is square Chiron Rx at 4:24 p.m.

Shortly after noon, the Virgo sun forms an opposition with Neptune in soulful Pisces. This aspect brings the energies and perceptions of the moment into contact with transcendent states and visions. Neptune is connected to dreams and imagination, but also to escapism and evasive ways of coping, so this aspect may illuminate a need to be more practical, realistic, and organized. This sun/Neptune opposition may provide an opportunity to add some vital structure and health routines to our schedule if we have drifted away from these.

A few hours later, the emotive Cancer moon forms a square aspect with Chiron in individualistic Aries. This aspect may cause some emotional friction for a little while and may symbolize the activation of a raw nerve or triggering topic. The moon in Cancer opens us to our most vulnerable states, pulling us to tend to an essential aspect of our healing. We may feel primarily reactive, yet this may simply be a protective defense around a deep source of pain.


The moon is square Mercury at 7:49 p.m.

The moon is sextile Uranus Rx at 8:57 p.m.

The Cancer moon drifts along its course to form a catalyzing square with Mercury in diplomatic Libra in the evening. This square may symbolize an impasse that we come to for a little while. We may feel descriptive words do not come together quickly. Mercury in Libra brings detachment and objectivity, yet the moon in Cancer brings potent immersive emotions, so there may be a little tug of war here as we seek connection and understanding.

Soon after, the intuitive Cancer moon forms a sextile with Uranus in grounded Taurus, when we may experience an emotional breakthrough after a day full of crossed wires and potential misunderstandings. This lunar aspect with Uranus, the planet of innovation and revolution, may deliver an aha moment, where we discover a new, and perhaps unorthodox approach to an old problem. This aspect may also offer a jolt of creative inspiration, or an inventive idea tonight.
