Expect High Tensions and Tough Confrontations, Thanks to Uranus and Mercury

We may be feeling tense and irritable, and have to face some tough conversations or confrontations during the day today, with the moon squaring off with both Uranus and Mercury. But tonight brings a peaceful and playful energy–a welcome respite before this weekend’s astrological activity.

Prepare yourself–tomorrow we’ll see the start of Sagittarius season, Venus moving into broody Scorpio, and the moon moving into emotional Pisces all in the span of one day.

The Moon is Square Uranus at 4:50 AM

In the wee hours, the moon in Aquarius squares off with Uranus in grounded Taurus. This might have you feeling a bit jumpy and impulsive. You’ll have some difficulty concentrating, and you’ll need to find an outlet for all that energy – or it will come bursting out of you in inconvenient ways. This is not the time for mundane or routine tasks. It’s time to get out and try something new.

You’ll also have a hard time relaxing, and you may have an overwhelming feeling that something BIG is about to happen. If you don’t get the newness or excitement you crave today, you may go looking for it. Just try to keep yourself out of trouble for the early part of the day.

You could be on the receiving end of an emotional outburst from someone else today. And while your instinct will be to run and avoid, it will be important to stay and patiently work through what’s attempting to be said. Avoid lashing out in return. Sensitivity is key here, and while it might lead to an uncomfortable conversation, the air needs to be cleared.

The Moon is Square Mercury 2:18 PM

This afternoon, the moon in Aquarius forms a square with Mercury in Scorpio. This is setting up a bit of a standoff between our emotions and our thoughts.

This could lead to some possible conflict and irritability. While you’re hashing things out in your own head, be careful not to push your opinions or criticism onto others. Your emotions are swaying your thoughts too much, and you could end up doing permanent harm to a relationship if you insist on a debate.

Instead, channel that energy in a more productive way. You’re in the perfect frame of mind to do some deep cleaning of your physical space.

The Moon is Sextile Mars at 6:50 PM

This evening, the moon in airy Aquarius forms a sextile aspect to Mars in Aries. This is a passionate and playful transit. We’re feeling competitive and cooperative, and may want to both express our need for independence and be a part of a group simultaneously. You can fulfill both roles by taking the lead on a project, or organizing work around a specific cause you feel strongly about.

This placement makes you very persuasive; you express yourself with confidence and the people around you respect that and follow your lead and conviction. It would be good to take advantage of this bout of confidence and bravery.
