September 25: An Opportunity for Transformation
The moon is conjunct Jupiter at 12:11 a.m.
The moon is sextile Neptune Rx at 3:00 a.m.
The moon is conjunct Pluto Rx at 9:09 a.m.
Around midnight, the moon and Jupiter join in Capricorn, forming a powerful conjunction. This blend of energies can have the effect of expanding our emotions and restoring optimism, yet this outlook will be grounded and tempered in the patient sign of the Goat. The moon then moves on to form a sextile with Neptune in dreamy Pisces, adding a mystical and imaginal mood to the early morning hours.
The day begins with the moon in reserved Capricorn forming another conjunction, this time with transformative Pluto. This conjunction brings profound emotional awareness in contact with the more complicated themes of our times. We may now become acutely aware of the psychological impacts the year’s changes and upheavals are having on us. This aspect is also an opportunity to transform our emotional awareness to come into greater acceptance of the forces we can’t control, giving us a greater clarity around what is within our power to manage.
The moon is conjunct Saturn at 2:26 p.m.
The moon is square Mars Rx at 4:12 p.m.
In the afternoon, the moon’s edgy aspects continue, moving on to conjoin Saturn in Capricorn. This aspect can cause us to feel emotionally confined, restricted, and a bit melancholic. The weight of responsibility and duty may weigh heavily on us now, as this day has brought up many serious topics.
This aspect lasts only for a couple of hours, but soon shifts into a challenging square with Mars in impatient Aries. The emotional friction and difficulties of the day lead to a passage of bottled up anger and frustration. This frustration is likely justified, given all of the pressure we feel. However, some care is needed with how we express, release, or resolve this tension to not unintentionally harm or blame others who may be just as frustrated as we are today.
The moon is square Mercury at 8:36 p.m., and moon void of course begins
The moon enters Aquarius at 11:08 p.m., and moon void of course ends
By the evening, the moon makes its last challenging aspect for the day when it forms a catalyzing square with Mercury in diplomatic Libra. This square may have the effect of temporarily blocking our attempts to express ourselves clearly. Part of the difficulty comes from the moon being in Capricorn, a sign that tends to dry up and limit the flow of emotions, making it hard to locate or articulate what is going on within. At this point, the moon void of course begins, and it’s just as well, as we are not likely to be in a frame of mind to make any new beginnings now.
A breath of fresh air arrives late night as the moon shifts into innovative Aquarius, and the moon void of course ends. The day’s sombre and difficult mood loosens, and we now have two days to see our difficulties in an objective new light.
