Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.
This is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
This New Moon is different in that we don’t plant new seeds; instead, we try to figure out what to do with what we’ve harvested. You’ll find yourself asking, “Where do I go from here?” The key is figuring out how to use what you’ve been working on to create a different kind of new beginning. Now that you’ve plucked that wheat the Virgo is known for holding, how are you going to use it?
You may feel discouraged, weak or inadequate during this transit as this is a low point in your energy. This is not a great time to force things; strong opposition can arise and prevent you from achieving your goals.
Now is the time, instead, to take a step back, conserve your energy and find a creative outlet for your expression. Right now is a great time to sit in quiet contemplation.
This is the second Full Moon in Aquarius this year (the first occurred last month on July 23, 2021). This lunation occurs late in the sign of Aquarius, right near the cusp of Pisces.
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun in Leo forms an opposition to the Moon in Aquarius. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time – a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
As the second Full Moon in Aquarius this year and occurring at the tail-end of the sign, this is about final events that awaken our feelings and that might spur us into action.
With Sun opposed Jupiter opportunities for success, good fortune, and increased happiness begin to flow. Everything will seem to fall in place without too much effort, leading you to believe you are on a lucky streak or gifted in some way. If you let any good fortune go to your head then this transit can result in loss, embarrassment, and a lowering of self-esteem- balance and gratitude are keys to making the most of this transit.
Today Uranus stations retrograde as well. Uranus retrograde is a regular cycle lasting 155 days every year in which the planet moves four degrees backward through the zodiac. This is a time of inner change in response to external changes in your life. You may have anticipated a major change in your life or tried to initiate change but nothing has happened. In this case, transiting Uranus retrograde will induce the internal changes in attitude or behaviors which are necessary to make the desired change possible.
Uranus retrograde will bring higher self-awareness and insights; a period of less chaotic internal changes should follow.
Today- just try to accept what comes with an open heart and mind. He heaviness that we’ve been feeling will resolve by the full moon on Sunday. For now, listen to what your intuition and guides are trying to show you.
All will be well- blessings ✨
