- The Moon is in Libra.

- The First Quarter Moon occurred yesterday, and a Full Moon will occur in Capricorn on July 9th.
- Chiron turns retrograde today (Chiron is retrograde from July 1-December 5).
Try your best not to get caught up in who’s right and who’s wrong today, dear Aries. With the Moon in your partnership sector, you can be particularly interested in keeping the peace, but it can be challenging and perhaps exhausting to reach a compromise, although not impossible! A difference of opinion may become too personal today and may even bring you down for awhile. It may be better to walk away and let it go. This can also be a time when you feel overwhelmed by family or household activities but can’t quite pull yourself away, either!
You can feel particularly sensitive to imbalances in your environment today, dear Taurus, and you can feel strongly about tidying things up or handling flaws and small problems. However, distractions can be great, particularly personal interests, social discourse, and relationships! You could find someone a little insensitive or unsympathetic later today, and communications can be a little off with Mercury in challenging aspect to Saturn. You might experience blocks to your plans related to fear, worry, or financial realities. This may very well be a push to refine and improve your plans or projects.
You may be in an indulgent and generous mood today, but tonight, there may be a concern that brings you down to reality or a challenging decision, dear Gemini. You might be thinking about things more than usual today, particularly money and valuables as well as relationship matters. It’s better to weigh options rather than force major decisions with these things today. Negotiations may fail to completely satisfy and possibly could make things worse at the moment. A significant other may seem a little distant, unsympathetic, or disapproving at the moment, particularly if you’re being frivolous. It can be a challenge to agree today.
The Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, dear Cancer, and you are likely to crave familiarity and comfort. However, relationship matters can distract you and keep you on the edge of your seat. Try to keep your expectations of others AND yourself reasonable today. With Mercury in your sign, you are more inclined to live in the head, but today, an awkward aspect can lead you to dwell on the negative. You might be spending too much time on issues that you can’t change, or that won’t be a concern for very long, and this is a bit of a waste if it doesn’t make you feel good. There can be concerns related to energy levels, work, routines, or health that weigh on your mind but do your best not to overthink for best results today.
The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Leo, and you’re likely to want to keep things light and play with different ideas. However, there can be some real distractions now that prevent you from taking things easy. We’re moving towards a Mercury-Saturn aspect that can leave you ambivalent as well as a Mars-Pluto aspect that can stir up frustrations and old, unresolved problems. Try to avoid getting too worked up about what others are doing or thinking. Obligations can eat up quite a bit of your day, so aim to clear up your duties rather than avoid them as they tend to hang in your aura anyhow. Focus on making adjustments rather than making bold moves today. Creatively speaking, you’re in fine form, and a partner can pull you out of a funk.
You are seeking out comfort and some predictability as well today, dear Virgo, with the Moon in your resources sector all day. However, there can be plenty of interference to deal with. It’s not an ideal day for decision-making because worries and fears may undermine the process. Family obligations or others’ expectations can weigh on your mind, and if you let them assume too much importance, it can be difficult to relax and enjoy yourself. Look for ways to assuage guilt about not getting certain responsibilities done, either by making a plan to handle them or by recognizing that you need to adjust expectations. You may need to change or improve something you thought you put behind you, which can be irritating. Do your best not to overthink things.
The Moon in your sign all day can move your emotional needs and personal plans to the front burner, dear Libra, but you may not always find easy channels for expressing yourself today. In fact, you may find yourself in between others’ dilemmas, whether this is about mediating or overthinking problems. Practical issues or duties can feel pressing, and pressures from work, superiors, and family can also figure strongly now. You may be feeling quite stumped, sensing that you have to make a difficult decision. Worries and concerns stifle what could have been light and fun conversations. Make a plan for attending to your responsibilities so that you can rest — and live — easier.
There is a part of you that is feeling especially free and happy today, dear Scorpio, and another part that is worried or feeling guilty. This ambivalence is not your favorite place to be, so work on choosing a position and owning it. You may be wrestling with a decision, and while you can be a little too serious for your own good, this might serve as a push to do a reality check on a matter that is ultimately for the best. Look for ways to sharpen and refine plans and ideas now. It’s a good time for recognizing the need for adjustments. The Moon spending the day in your privacy sector points to the need to unwind, but it’s easier said than done today! Relationship or social drama is likely the main culprit.
The Moon in your social sector suggests a desire to let go of pressures and unwind in good company today, dear Sagittarius. However, a need to be frugal, a reminder of a responsibility, or a feeling of being limited could undercut your good mood at times today, or it may prevent you from getting as close or intimate with someone as you’d like. This can be a thoughtful day, and quite excellent for making adjustments, but if your mind frequently strays to negative or stressed places, then it would be wise to treat the source of your concerns. If timing is off in a relationship, try not to take it too seriously or as a sign of something more. A situation may arise today that requires cutting your losses so that you can move on.
You can feel strongly about handling your work or obligations today, dear Capricorn, but it can be hard to turn all of your attention to your goals when relationships and personal matters seem to occupy much of your time. A lot is on your mind today, and you’re inclined to juggle different topics, worries, and concerns, making concentration on priorities a real challenge now. You may find it better to wait out a decision if you’re feeling a little stuck between alternatives, but this doesn’t mean you can’t be productive today. In fact, it can be a great day for making adjustments and refinements that truly benefit you down the road.
Practical details should be considered today, dear Aquarius, with a Mercury-Saturn influence in play, even if your social life is calling to you. Responsibilities can eat up a lot of your time, but you’re in generally good spirits and can rise above changes of plans and interruptions. You may be giving more thought than usual to work and health matters these days, but today, you’re inclined to worry rather than resolve problems. It’s not easy to come to the point of clarity on any one thing today with so much that you’re juggling right now, so aim to do your best with what you have and sort things through one step at a time. Weigh pros and cons but avoid overthinking today.
Imbalances can be a focal point today, dear Pisces, but this can keep you in a state of limbo and unrest, so aim to make adjustments rather than obsessing over what’s out of whack. Tensions might arise with someone over issues of sharing and intimacy later today, and it can be difficult to say the right things or get to the point of conclusion and balance. Timing in relationships can be a little off right now, probably because you’re overthinking things. You’re paying more attention to your mind right now, and your heart hasn’t yet caught up. Remember that not everything can be reasoned out or rationalized and avoid seeking clear answers today. This way, answers will eventually come more organically, and you’ll have more faith in them that way.

Date & Time: Jul 1 2017 3:09 am
Event: Tr Chi R
Description: Transiting Chiron Stationary
Strong Signs, Elements, Modes
Nurturing, protective, tenacious, emotional sensitive, watery, strong roots. Can be overly protective, unwilling to let go, timid, reclusive.
Even-handed, harmonious, artistic, diplomatic, balancing, strong sense of fairness. Can be over- compromising, appeasing, judgmental.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
We are not very goal-oriented right now, or motivation to pursue our goals may be waning/lacking. Changes feel overwhelming. Enthusiasm may be low, we argue less, and we think more than we take action.
We are more compassionate, emotional, and intuitive than usual, and we may react emotionally to situations, possibly at the expense of logic or practicality.
BALANCE OF MODES
We are ready to take action and to take on challenges, and can become frustrated with stagnant conditions.
We may be open to change but may not have much follow-through.
We can have a hard time adapting to changes and to others’ agendas.
LUNAR PHASE: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are motivated to take action, perhaps due to a clash, conflict, or stress, as we are more aware of problems and differences now. Plans are beginning to take off or turn a corner. We should watch for pushing too hard.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on July 1st:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected–or will perfect–in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving the Moon is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect involving inner planets has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a lifetime).
THE MOON IN LIBRA
We are focused on our relationships, and finding balance, peace, and harmony in our personal environment under this influence.
18TH DEGREE OF LIBRA

SQUARE PLUTO Orb 1°04′ Applying
Unacknowledged feelings can emerge in possibly disruptive ways. We may be acting in compulsive or possessive ways now.

OPPOSITION PLUTO Orb 8°20′ Applying
We may be struggling with issues of power and competition. There can be a feeling that external circumstances are undermining our own feeling of powerfulness. Through our encounters and reactions, we may be able to get in touch with our internal motivations.

OPPOSITION PLUTO Orb 3°20′ Separating
We can experience pressure to decide or come to a conclusion. Second-guessing and suspicion are possible now.

Part of Body: Duodenal opening of pancreatic duct
Sabian Symbol: A hen scratching for her chicks.

You will need to learn to have confidence in yourself even when life deals you a few blows. You range from over confident to completely lacking in confidence. The truth lies somewhere in between.
SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS
Saturn in Sagittarius asks us to take on the responsibility of living according to our personal truths and principles — and to be loyal to these. This is a time for turning a critical eye to those beliefs and principles that don’t accurately reflect our authentic selves.
