At 4:36 a.m.: The moon is sextile the sun

In the morning, the Scorpio moon sextiles the Capricorn sun, a harmonious influence to kick off the day! Easy-going conversations regarding our goals or dreams inspire a deeper understanding of our underlying motivations.  We recognize what drives us to succeed and can offer ourselves greater compassion for falling into traps of perfectionism or analysis paralysis. We feel safe being ourselves without needing to put up walls.

At 6:27 a.m.: The moon is sextile Pluto, and the moon void of course begins

Around sun-up, the moon sextiles Pluto, engendering catharsis. Ties can be strengthened with those who have earned our trust. Alternatively, we can let go of relationships that are not aiding our evolution. We can also acknowledge and release problematic or self-defeating behaviors.  The moon falls into a three-hour void period following this aspect’s perfection, encouraging stillness over taking action.
