September 16: Unusual Perspectives

The moon is trine Uranus Rx at 4:24 a.m.

Early Wednesday morning, the moon in precise Virgo forms a supportive earth trine with Uranus in Taurus. This aspect brings the moon in the sign of structured routine into alignment with the planet of disruption, creating an opportunity to dispense with our usual perspectives in favor of a new approach. Since the trine is a beneficial, enabling aspect, the changes we may be inspired to make now when it comes to managing our emotions, and resources, will be helpful and stable. The moment’s lunar mood is grounded and focused and helps us channel Uranus’ surprises into useful outcomes.

The moon is trine Jupiter at 3:54 p.m.

A little later, the Virgo moon shifts into a perfect trine with benevolent Jupiter in dutiful Capricorn. Even though Jupiter’s bounties are a bit reserved while in conservational Capricorn this year, the moon’s trine with the planet of opportunities is sure to boost our mood and outlook. This earth trine may help us feel more hopeful but in a grounded and constructive way. The moon trine Jupiter may also encourage emotional growth, steady confidence, and a time to honor our self-care practices.


The moon is opposite Neptune Rx at 7:03 p.m.

Early evening, the Virgo moon shifts into an opposition with Neptune in oceanic Pisces, bringing details and transcendence into polarity. We may feel like we can conjure visions in our imagination, and the Virgo moon may inspire us to make these a reality by having a tangible perspective. Since the moon is connected to emotions, this opposition to nebulous Neptune may also heighten our feelings, causing confusion and mental fog. We may prefer to daydream instead of forming focused, constructive thoughts, as Neptune’s powerful presence becomes highlighted tonight.

Neptune in Pisces asks us to surrender to mysterious forces that we can’t understand, testing the Virgo moon’s ability to keep us connected to day-to-day reality. Tonight, we wonder if it’s possible to hold both energies in balance.
