Passions Are High Today, Thanks to Scorpio

When the moon moves into Scorpio, there are sure to be intense emotions. They might drive you to take spontaneous action outside your normal behavior, or it might be more of an introverted, introspective kind of vibe. Either way, you’re gonna be feeling all the feels. Try to keep this external influence in mind before you make any rash, permanent changes.

The Moon Moves into Scorpio at 12:12 AM

Overnight, the moon moved into reflective Scorpio. Scorpio moons have a dark, intense, and passionate energy. Scorpio likes to explore the depths of our psyches. Your dreams might have been a little bit intense last night, but dreams also have messages from our higher selves. If you can remember them, even if they make no sense in the moment, write them down. Keep doing this over the next couple of days, and see if you can identify any helpful patterns or insights.

This moon also 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 some serious sensuality and intensely passionate energy. How that energy is channeled is up to you. It can be destructive or, hey, you might have some fun with it. Don’t be afraid to embrace the hedonism right now. No judgment.

Venus is Square Neptune at 1:11 PM

This afternoon, Venus in playful Gemini forms a square with Neptune in dreamy Pisces tonight. This will likely put you in a sensitive, romantic mood, and also make you feel a bit starved for social interaction and pleasure. You’re on the hunt for a new sense of independence and possibly strange eroticism.

This, without a shadow of a doubt, can lead to new pairings or partnerships. But be aware that this particular transit—which will last a couple of days—can dissolve these new relationships just as easily. You’re prone to misunderstandings and jealousies. It might be wise to wait it out for a few days before you jump into anything new—or end what you already have.

Mercury is Square Mars at 5:43 PM

This evening, Mercury in emotional Cancer forms a square with Mars in fiery Aries. This transit can be challenging at times, and this clash of fire and water will intensify that. During this transit, we’re prone to being nervous, easily excitable, and possibly intolerant and sarcastic towards others.

Rushed thinking can make us feel short-tempered and aggressive. It’s easy to take things out of context and jump to conclusions, but what we really need to do is slow down and center ourselves. Listen carefully to what’s being said, and think twice before responding. Also, avoid making big decisions or entering into any sort of negotiations until you feel more grounded and settled.

The Moon is Opposite Uranus at 6:08 PM

A short time later, the moon in Scorpio moves opposite Uranus in Taurus for a slightly uneasy, short-lived transit. We will experience some emotional turmoil and stress in our relationships. This placement can have us feeling cagey, with our independence at the top of our priority list. We also might be looking for a fight, with an urge to pick at someone just to get a reaction. The heavy energy of the past weeks may be weighing on us, and we’re unsure of how to work through it.

Despite feeling irritable, be careful who you take that emotional energy out on. This is only a temporary mood.
