After a mostly chill day yesterday in the Heavens, today brings us a lot of lunar aspects. The moon also ingresses into the sign of Aquarius late tonight. This is the last bit of the Capricorn moon of the month, and also the full moon in Capricorn. So read on and hold on for some waves throughout the day!
The first aspect of the day is when Mercury in Leo comes to a trine with Saturn in Sagittarius at 2:28 AM. This has us feeling like making some realistic plans for the future. If you are up at this time you might be thinking about some of those things. Often aspects are felt before they become exact, so in all honesty, this might be a good night to think about making some plans for the future. Even make sure your Will, or Power of Attorney is up to date. None of us like to think of tragedy, but things happen in life, and if you don't have that sort of stuff straight in your life yet, it might be a good idea to make some plans to get that done. You are never too young or old to do that either!
The next aspect is when the moon in Capricorn comes to a trine with Jupiter in Virgo at 4:39 AM. This is a feel good aspect, like we might even want to get up early and get the day started. Or we might like to get up in the middle of the night and munch on something we shouldn't! The moon being a lot about the body and Jupiter making things “large” lets not do that to our bodies – opt for something healthy if you do find yourself standing in front of the fridge early in the morning.
The following aspect is when the moon in Capricorn makes a square to Uranus in Aries at 1:06 PM. When I think of these two planets, especially in these signs, I think of them locking horns. It would serve all of us well if we had some patience and maybe even waited making decisions at this time. This is a moon aspect so it is over with fairly quickly!
The moon in Capricorn then comes to a sextile with Mars in Scorpio at 3:12 PM. This is an exciting energy and might even have some of us feeling nervous. You might want to do something with this surge of energy like go for a run or to the gym. That will help channel this energy in a positive way.
The next aspect is the full moon in Capricorn that happens at 6:57 PM. When there is a full moon it means that the moon and sun are exactly opposite in the sky. The sun is in Cancer which is Capricorn's opposite. So you can figure out really easily which full moon it is going to be if you know how the zodiac goes. If the sun is in a certain sign, the moon will be in the sun's opposite sign.
Oppositions bring out a tug and pull of the two energies of the planets and are thought of as hard aspects, this is why we often feel a little “loony” under the full moon! The Capricorn full moon brings bout an awareness to our heritage and where we are putting our energies in a work sense. Maybe your work is really satisfying for you and you are happy contributing to the world in the ways that you do. Or maybe you are not doing what you want to be doing. If that is the case, then this is a great energy to figure out exactly how would you like to contribute to the world? Through your work, through your family and heritage. Work on those things in the next 6 months and watch things unfold for you when the sun is in Capricorn and the moon is is Cancer (the opposite full moon as today). You can accomplish and put a lot into gear in those 6 months!
After the peak of the full moon the moon goes into her void-of-course phase for a couple of hours. Take some time to spend time with family, meditate or reflect on the next 6 months of your life. The the moon ingresses into the sign of Aquarius at 11:10 PM. This is a zaney moon that has you thinking and doing things “out of the box”! Moon in Aquarius is a time to do things that you do not usually do, get out of the quiet shell you might be in and do something that makes you feel free! The moon hangs in Aquarius until early Friday morning!
The gemstone for today is Moonstone. Moonstone is connected to the moon, and the sun because the moon today is in Capricorn and the sun is in Cancer. This is a nice gemstone to help keep you balanced during this time.
The essential oil suggestion for today is Chamomile. Chamomile is a great essential oil to help bring the energies of the moon in and keep them calm and feeling lovely.
All times are in Eastern US Time.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
