The Moon and Uranus Will Break You Free From Old Patterns

The moon in fiery Leo formed a square with Uranus in Taurus overnight, and this particular transit can bring with it emotional tension and disturbances. So, batten down the hatches. Today might be a little bumpy.

The Moon is Square Uranus at 1:36 AM

This transit instills an urge to break free from old patterns, which might be temporarily uncomfortable. It can also cause tension in relationships, since it can have us feeling on edge and prone to emotional outbursts. But ultimately, it’s something that will lead to personal growth on the other side.

What This Means for Our Relationships

The moon represents our emotions in astrology, but also our domestic life and our instinctive reactions to other people. The moon also rules the mother—and women in general—so it could be possible your mother or other women in your life are feeling anxious or on the cusp of a drastic change. This could make personal encounters a bit fraught.

We’re also experiencing a good deal of restlessness. Unpleasant interactions with others, especially those closest to us, could make us want to break out of our routines and seek adventure or pleasure elsewhere. Don’t let impulsivity or a desire to escape your current discomfort cause you to do something you’ll ultimately regret.

We need to be aware of how our emotions will affect others today. We’re prone to outbursts, as are others, and in light of recent global events we’re all feeling raw and exhausted. But if we took a step back and recognized the energetic forces at play here, we might react to each other with a bit more patience and grace.

What This Means for Our Personal Growth

Our emotions might feel like they’re in control of us today, and not the other way around. This might be more difficult for some signs than others, especially if we’re used to depending on emotional stability and security. We might even wander into the treacherous territory of questioning our own mental health. If this happens, it’s important to keep in mind that this is only a temporary transit, and these feelings won’t be permanent.

The overarching feeling of “something is about to happen” could increase or trigger some latent anxieties about the future. This is an important time to keep our self awareness in tact. What emotional patterns are being threatened here, and why? Are they serving you or causing harm?

This friction, uncomfortable though it might be, is here for a reason. It can shed light on the ways we emotionally react to situations in our daily lives, and how we might be able to improve them. For our own mental health, and for those around us.
