At 8:06 a.m.: The moon is square Uranus, and the moon void of course begins
In the morning, the Leo moon squares off with Uranus in Taurus, prompting erratic emotions. Disturbances in our environments or within our relationships cause us to react impulsively. At this time, we believe that the “other shoe is about to drop,” and by striking pre-emptively, we can spare ourselves grief and regain authority over the situation. Although our instincts may be sharp, the rationale behind our behavior is likely to be ill-conceived. We risk going to extremes when a simple course correction would have done just fine. This square is really encouraging us to leverage confidence even in moments that seem to be spiraling out of control. In truth, we have very little control over anything happening in our world; we simply have control over our response to it. The moon enters a void of course following this aspect, which will last until after nightfall. Have patience when navigating surprises or twists of fate today. See these as opportunities to embody courage instead of turning every inconvenience into a power play.
At 10:18 p.m.: The moon enters Virgo, and the moon void of course ends
The cosmic weather is then quiet (but rather tumultuous!) until night, when the moon enters Virgo, ending its void of course. The day’s events may have been shocking. Take stock of your reactions and responses. Did you allow upsets to derail your equilibrium? We are currently in the dark moon in the run-up to the September 14 new moon in Virgo. This is a period of shedding and release, so review this past lunar cycle. Consider what you have learned, what has been integrated, and what you can let go of to make space for practical and methodical Virgo teachings. The devil may be in the details now, but our redemption is in the details too!
