Things are a little quiet in the skies today, with only one major planetary transit. But it’s a juicy one, with big implications for our relationships with friends, family, and lovers. It also might be auspicious for our careers and finances. Let’s dig in, shall we?
The Moon is Sextile Mercury at 1:17 PM
The moon is currently in fiery, forward-moving Aries. This will lend a little extra passion and spice to our emotional life for the next two days – until the moon goes void tomorrow around 4:30 PM. Aries likes to keep things moving, so you might find your inner world has a clearer sense of purpose and intention during this time.
Mercury, ruler of communication, is still right at home in its native sign of Gemini. This placement brings a natural sense of intellectual curiosity, and most of all, lightning speed communication. You can cut to the heart of an issue and concisely spell things out swiftly and effectively.
What This Means for Your Relationships
The sextile angle that these two form is favorable, and can put you in the mood for socializing and gabbing. Which, to be fair, can be quite a challenge in these quarantined times. But it will be worth it to get creative in your modes of communication today. Take advantage of FaceTime or Zoom calls, and maybe shoot off some voice memos to the people you’d normally chit chat with in person.
You can expect more communication in general right now, with others seeking you out for advice or counsel. Your intuition is on point, and you can feel out other people’s problems and offer the right words of encouragement, or even just a (perhaps virtual) shoulder to cry on.
This combination of fire (Aries) and air (Gemini) energies could bring about some eye opening and passionate conversations or encounters with loved ones. They may help you to finally put some long-held emotions into words, and finally bring some important truths to light. This will be an excellent time for family members or significant others to have productive and inspired conversations, possibly reaching new levels of connection and intimacy.
What This Means for Your Career
Your memory is razor sharp, which could bring about some nostalgia or wistfulness. You might be reminded of an old friend, or maybe even hear from one. That clear head also means that routine mental work will feel easier than usual right now.
It’s a very good time to attack long-term creative or professional projects with out-of-the-box solutions. As Mercury is also the ruler of currency and markets, you are likely to be presented with new financial opportunities. Look for chances to take on new work, impress employers and collaborators, or make strides in an entrepreneurial sense.
