The Motions of the Moon - August 15th, 2019

This is our third day of the Moon travelling through Aquarius, until 11:50pm EST. Throughout the day, the final three aspects she makes will separate, and the sympathy relation to Saturn will remain constant throughout

The Sun and Venus oppositions will separate around 8:00am EST, and flow forth most intensely through the rest of the morning. Throughout this flowing-forth period, be sure to take some time for yourself to take a breather from any difficult circumstances that these two oppositions may have brought up.

While these aspects will not cause any major difficulties with any severe strain (Venus and the Sun are each ultimately benefic, after all), the aftermaths of disagreements that arise between friends also require a little self-care.

Early this morning the moon came into closer proximity with Mars. Since mars is still combust, the effects of this will not be felt as strongly, but The moon-mars opposition can generally indicate circumstances in our lives that we find frustrating or that make us angry. If someone is feeling this aspect particularly strongly, they may find themselves having an intense argument or shouting match with someone else.

Another configuration may help to dignify mars here: Mars himself has today come into the range of the fixed star Regulus. Regulus is traditionally one of the most auspicious stars in the sky, the guardian star of the North. Naturally enough, Regulus imbues a planet with dignity and nobility, and in the case of Mars, less prone to act out.

In the nighttime, the moon will conjoin Fomalhaut, the guardian star of the South. Fomalhaut is of the nature of Venus and Mercury, and so bestows the moon with an energy of friendliness and an ease of expression. If you’ve had any quarrels or tensions arise with others throughout the last few days, now would be a good time to contact them and try and resolve things if you haven’t already.

Today Venus is in the final day of her Cazimi period, and you could also use this day to propitiate her.
