The Moon begins Saturday having just entered brooding Scorpio, whose tunnels it will travel for the next few days. Luna’s first aspect is a strange caress from offbeat Venus in Aquarius, which provides a touch of quirky charm. From there, the Moon makes a disruptive opposition with Uranus in Taurus, which is followed quickly be a steadying sextile with Jupiter in Capricorn. This pairing pings the Jupiter-Uranus trine which has been active all month, pointing toward whatever pragmatic upgrades you’ve been thinking about installing.
Finally, during the evening hours, the Sun crosses into Capricorn, taking us to the threshold between seasons. This is the solstice, the point of maximum inequality between day and night. It marks the longest nights of the northern hemisphere’s year and the longest days in the south. From here, we will move back toward balance, but slowly.
The first third of that journey is the Sun’s time in Capricorn, which illuminates the sturdy structures which undergird life. Hard but enduring truths grow in this stony soil. The flowers which bloom there are few, but their healing power is unparalleled.
