September 12: Beyond Material Reality

September 12: Beyond Material Reality

The moon is opposite Jupiter Rx at 9:54 a.m.

Saturday begins with an opposition between the nurturing moon in Cancer and Jupiter in pragmatic Capricorn. This aspect may heighten our emotions and may amplify a need to tend to our self-care. Jupiter is expansive, so it may present us with a need to recalibrate our emotional boundaries if we find these have become too porous. It’s important to feel free and honest in our emotional expressions, but we may also need to guard against giving away too much emotional labor at our own energetic expense.


The moon is trine Neptune Rx at 1:45 p.m.

The moon is sextile the sun at 3:44 p.m.

Jupiter goes direct at 5:41 p.m.

In the early afternoon, the potent Cancer moon forms a water trine with Neptune in compassionate Pisces. This is a truly dreamy, idealistic, and emotionally healing aspect that helps us recharge our belief in what lies beyond material reality. We may access heightened states of intuition and find it easier to “feel” our way through important decisions now. This transcendent combination reminds us to trust our inner guidance systems and balance our intellect with a more profound sense of knowing and faith.

Soon after, the protective Cancer moon forms a sextile with the sun in precise Virgo, forming the waning crescent lunar phase. This aspect brings strong feelings of the moment into harmony with our conscious perceptions, giving us a sense of inner balance that helps us realign on our path forward now.

By the late afternoon, another pivotal planetary shift occurs, and this is the direct station of the biggest planet in our solar system. Jupiter has been retrograde since May 14, and ever since, all matters connected to Jupiter have felt delayed. Jupiter rules growth, expansion, opportunity, luck, travel, and wealth—all topics that have been limited for us in one way or another. While growth and recovery are still slow and ongoing under reserved Capricorn, we may finally start to feel gradual progress. There are many other challenging factors to consider for the rest of this year, but we may at least begin to feel a little momentum and cautious optimism.

The moon is opposite Pluto Rx at 7:19 p.m.

In the evening, the waning moon in intuitive Cancer forms an opposition with Pluto in stoic Capricorn. This polarity between the moon and the planet of transformation may illuminate our shadows, and inspire us to reflect on power dynamics that lie below the surface. We are acutely aware that this year’s profound changes have emotional and psychological effects on us all, having us reflecting on all the ways we have grown.
