Today’s Existential Crisis Is Brought to You by Scorpio

Today we might feel a bit restless and edgy, and thanks to Scorpio’s influence, quite introspective. We might get caught in a bit of a “what does it all mean?” loop. Just remember that all emotions, even the dreaded ennui, are temporary situations. Try not to stay locked up in your own head for too long.

The Moon is Square Pluto at 8:49 AM

This morning, the moon in airy Libra forms a square with Pluto in grounded Capricorn. Our impulsiveness butts up against a bit of introspection, and that can cause some discomfort. This could lead to some compulsive or destructive behavior, as some long-buried wounds or traumas are pulled to the surface.

It’s quite possible that some of these wounds have to do with family history, so be on the lookout for emotional power struggles with family members or partners.

This isn’t fun by any means, but it’s very important not to bury things even further. You need to find a way for that energy to move through you. Talk to a friend, get your thoughts down on paper, or seek out the counsel of a professional.

The Moon is Square Jupiter at 9:12 AM

Things are feeling relaxed later on this morning as the moon forms a square with Jupiter in Capricorn. They might even feel a bit boring. We’re feeling restless, and our emotions could be amplified under this transit, which could lead to some dramatic outbursts. It’s important not to get impulsive or reckless out of a desire for novelty, especially in your relationships.

Instead, shift your focus to creating something good and beautiful in the world. It might be a good time for spiritual or educational pursuits.

The Moon Moves into Scorpio at 6:48 PM

This evening, the moon moves into reflective Scorpio. Scorpio moons have a dark, intense, and passionate energy. Scorpio likes to explore the depths of our psyches.

This moon brings out an increased psychic focus, which helps us read people and their motivations in an uncanny way. Scorpio reminds us to look a little bit closer, and to dig a little bit deeper, to see what’s really going on under the surface. There’s no room for small talk right now. We’re ready to explore the uncomfortable subjects that will ultimately lead to our healing.

The Scorpio moon also awakens a sense of sensuality and intensely passionate energy. How that energy is channeled is up to you. It can be destructive, or it can be a little fun. Don’t be scared to lean into your dark and twisty side. We’ve all got them.

The Moon is Square Saturn at 6:59 PM

Shortly after, the moon in Scorpio forms a square with Saturn in Aquarius, leaving us with a slightly restless feeling. It might also bring us some feelings of sadness, loneliness, guilt, or shame. You may be feeling like you’re in a funk, maybe even after dwelling on past relationship failures, loss, or grief.

A bout of low self esteem could keep you from openly sharing your emotions, and you might be feeling more isolated and distant from your loved ones than you have been lately.
