I’m not gonna sugarcoat it. Today could be a tough one. The planets are aligning to bring us a period of moodiness, frustration, and a tendency to take things way too personally. Spending some time today by yourself is advisable.
Take some time to journal, meditate, and set intentions on this Super New Moon for what you’d like to manifest in your life over the next six months. Then maybe go to bed early.
The Moon is Square Jupiter at 8:15 AM
Things are feeling relaxed this morning as the moon in Libra forms a square with Jupiter in Capricorn. In fact, things are so relaxed that 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.
Don’t fall in the trap of retail therapy to cure your boredom, though, as Jupiter can inflate our sense of our finances. That could get you into trouble.
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 is Opposite Mars at 9:53 AM
A little later this morning, the moon in Libra moves opposite of Mars in Aries. This transit could have us feeling a bit moody and temperamental for a spell this morning. Things that we would typically gloss over or ignore suddenly get on our last nerve.
Impulsivity and aggression could be your downfall here, especially in your relationships with friends, family, or partners. You’ll need to stay conscious of this and exercise patience, or else opt to spend some time alone. Physical exercise might help you to move that energy through.
The Moon is Square Pluto at 1:18 PM
This afternoon, the moon in Libra forms a square with Pluto in grounded Capricorn. This transit causes our impulsiveness to butt up against a bit of introspection, and that can cause some discomfort. It might lead to some compulsive or destructive behavior, and some long-buried wounds or traumas could be pulled to the surface.
It’s quite possible that some of these wounds have to do with family history. Be on the lookout for emotional power struggles with family members or partners, or reliving past events to feed the grudge monster.
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. And keep in mind that this is only a temporary transit.
The Super New Moon in Libra Occurs at 3:35 PM
A few hours later, we get a hit of sweet, gentle Libra energy from the super new moon. As the halfway point of the zodiac calendar, Libra is concerned with beauty, balance, harmony, and thoughtful contemplation.
You may be drawn to reflect on the past and what’s gone right or wrong on your life, love, and work paths so far. But that’s balanced by a desire to manifest new partnerships, collaborations, friendships, or romantic interests.
It’s an excellent time to lean into diplomacy and empathy when examining any fraught relationships in your life. It’s time to listen, to calmly hash through things, and compromise to create mutually beneficial scenarios for all involved.
The Moon is Square Saturn at 6:12 PM
This evening, the moon forms a square aspect with Saturn in earthy Capricorn. Squares between the moon and Saturn can cause serious bouts of moodiness and moments of depression, and you may find yourself dredging up past grief and other unresolved matters.
This transit might leave you with a slightly restless feeling. 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.
This mood is pretty consistent with the day up until this point. Take some time to journal your feelings tonight, and see if you can parse any lessons from these energies and the encounters they’ve prompted. Then, take some time to write down some things you’re grateful for to bolster your mood a bit.
