The Motions of the Moon - August 9th, 2019

Today the moon continues the pass that she began yesterday through Sagitarrius. Early in the morning, she will conjoin the fixed star Antares. Antares is one of the four royal stars, considered by the persians to be the guardians of the four directions - in this case the west,.

Antares can bring open-mindedness, love of learning, and generosity, but is also known to raise people’s temper and make people boisterous. It should come as no suprise to anyone that this couuld characterize many a Sagitarrius-dominant individual, since about a third of Sagittarii will have their sun or moon within the traditional orb of this star’s influence.

The moon is receiving help in her passage through Sagitarrius by her copresence with her ruler, Jupiter. As was the case with Venus and the Moon in Libra, Jupiter’s ability to “see” the Moon by a traditional aspect means that he can easily provide her with support.


As we continue through our journey’s and explorations through our own mind or the cosmos itself during this Sag-moon period, we can expect to receive more grace and aid through our process - perhaps the right person is with you at the right time to answer questions you have, or you just find that your circumstances are giving you exactly what you need in the moment to move forward.

The Sun-Moon trine mentioned yesterday will continue to grow in strength - expect even more support from your circumstances in accomplishing what you need - chances are that the goals you have today will be met and support by your environment. There will be a generally more relaxed timbre to life.

The Moon-venus trine will peak today and being to flow forth or separate later in the afternoon. If you didn’t have that difficult conversation or ask for that favor yesterday, make sure to do so today sometime earlier in the morning or afternoon, as you will have more support from the universe.

The Moon has entered into the sight of Mars by trine - this will be more overtly helpful than the square we had in Scorpio - you may find the stronger masculine people in your life showing up more frequently to help you if you need it, or to share in the enjoyment of the sagittarian emotional and mental expansion that will happen for the day.
