Saturday, JULY 17
The Moon continues its transit of Libra until 2:39 PM EDT, and the First Quarter Moon occurs at 6:11 AM when the Cancer Sun forms a square with the Libra Moon. We may become aware of obstacles related to a plan or project. This can be a time of stress, clashing, and discord, but also of high energy, motivation, and growth. We’re competitive and ambitious, stirred into action.
The Scorpio Moon from 2:39 PM forward is intense, tenacious, tough, and perceptive. Further, the Sun opposes Pluto today, pulling up deeper, darker, or buried and unresolved matter. Through feelings, relationships, and events, we can more clearly see areas of life where we’ve been holding onto something too tightly or giving away our personal power. This can feel uncomfortable and can be disruptive, but it can also heighten self-awareness.
Outside forces remind us of our need to take charge of our lives, but shortcuts to gaining control are unlikely to work out. Instead, we should formulate strategies for managing our fears or worries. A tricky or buried issue might now reach a head. We may feel on edge, volatile, or defensive.
There can be an inner drama, or external circumstances seem to undermine our perception of powerfulness. We may experience a battle within ourselves between light and dark forces, or we can meet this theme through others.
The void Moon occurs from 7:04 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to Pluto), until the Moon enters Scorpio at 2:39 PM EDT.
