The Motions of the Moon - August 14th, 2019

After the intensity in the transitions felt yesterday, today we return again to a little break in the action.

The moon still occupies Aquarius in a homozonia relationship with her host Saturn. In order for the moon’s most positive significations to come out, she needs to see or be in sympathy with her sign host. Fortunately, she is, and the sympathy that they have through homozonia allows them to communicate without getting too close to each other. This functions as support for the moon and her significations that will be less overtly overbearing and Saturnine.

The Moon continues to apply to the Sun and Venus though again neither of these aspects will perfect today. The standoff I mentioned yesterday between what we want to accomplish and achieve and what our environment provides us will come to a head today – if you didn’t experience anything related to those significations yesterday, you probably will today.

Likewise, the standoff between the Moon and Venus comes to a head today as well. Chances are that the power of Venus here in Cazimi will make it difficult to ignore these pressures. You may find it difficult to care for your own emotional needs and also tend to the needs of others. Maybe someone who generally tries your patience is being particularly frustrating today. Give what you can without overextending yourself.

Lastly, the moon applies to and separates from a sextile to Jupiter today. This is the best support that the moon has. If you find yourself being really worn thin by the two previous aspects, chances are that some kind of force – whether it be a helpful, friendly person, a book containing sage advice, or just your own presence of mind – will intervene to keep you from completely losing it. This is especially the case since the moon applies her sextile to Jupiter before the sun and Venus come into play.

Venus Cazimi continues today, and reaches its climax late tonight and early tomorrow morning. I suggest again for artists to do something at this time to honor Venus, and she will provide you with help in your creative journey.
