August 11: Uplifted and Realigned
The moon is trine Jupiter Rx at 8:51 a.m.
The moon is square the sun at 9:45 a.m.
The moon is sextile Neptune Rx at 11:32 a.m.
Tuesday begins with the steady Taurus moon forming an earth trine with Jupiter in resourceful Capricorn. This trine is an abundant and supportive transit that blends the moon’s nurturing energies with the benevolence of Jupiter. Today may present some opportunities to materialize a project, or at the very least, it helps us feel optimistic and steady.
Jupiter in Capricorn is a more reserved and thriftier version of Jupiter, who is usually very beneficial and rewarding. In Capricorn, Jupiter is still helpful and gives gifts that seem more modest but are very useful. These gifts tend to come to us after dedicated work and patience, and we may be reaping these rewards today.
An hour later, the moon forms a perfect square aspect with the sun, forming the third quarter phase of the lunar cycle. If we were to look up this evening, we would see a clean half-moon in the sky, resulting from the moon being at a 90-degree angle from the sun. This lunar square between the steady Taurus moon and the radiant Leo sun creates a little catalytic friction that prompts us to finish any last tasks or integrations we feel called toward as the lunar cycle winds down.
In the late morning, the exalted Taurus moon forms a sweet, supportive sextile with Neptune in soulful Pisces. This sextile is a lovely, imaginal aspect that heightens intuition and creativity. Our feelings and visions come together harmoniously, helping us to feel uplifted and spiritually realigned.
The moon is trine Pluto Rx at 5:03 p.m.
The abundant Taurus moon drifts, further along, to form an earth trine with Pluto in patient Capricorn. This aspect brings the steady mood of the moment into balance with the transformative energies that Pluto represents. We may feel a bit more at peace with our circumstances and hold our ground in the face of this year’s profound changes and challenges. This trine may also be psychologically supportive, bringing mysteries and patterns up from the shadows of our psyche to be examined and understood.
