Our memory, focus, and intuitions are super sharp today, and there’s some restlessness brewing. If we’re not careful, that could spell trouble. Luckily the moon is moving into Virgo, which is a stabilizing influence.
The Moon is Sextile Mercury at 6:03 AM
Early this morning, the moon in fiery Leo forms a sextile aspect to Mercury in diplomatic Libra. This is a favorable transit, and these signs complement each other well.
This could put you in the mood for socializing and gabbing. Mercury rules communication and the moon rules emotions, so expect some heady, revealing conversations with your nearest and dearest. You’re in tune with your own emotions as well as those of the people around you right now, so those conversations will flow freely and easily.
This could be a creatively transformative period for you. You’ve got a tremendous amount of energy right now, and you’re focused on getting ahead. Your memory is razor-sharp, and your intuition is on point. Decision-making should feel natural. That clear head also means that routine mental work will feel easier than usual right now.
The Moon Moves into Virgo at 8:26 AM
When the moon is in the sign of analytical Virgo, we tend to be more productive, health conscious, and critical. It’s a great time to focus on the more mundane and menial tasks that need attention, as our focus and memory are razor sharp and we don’t mind getting into the nit picky stuff. We may be craving things like puzzles, mental exercises, games, and reading.
Take this time to do some organizing, deep cleaning, or Marie Kondo-ing of your home. We can buckle down in a zen-like state and do some serious detailed work if it means that we’ll see tangible results. Gardening could also be a great productive pastime, as could catching up on chores.
Our conversations and thoughts can turn toward the critical, and focus on fault finding with ourselves and others. Self improvement is likely to be at the forefront of our minds, and it would be a good time to evaluate your daily habits and routines, making adjustments to your diet and exercise.
Venus is Opposite Mars at 11:16 AM
A few hours later, Venus in Libra forms an opposite to Mars in Aries. This face off can seriously increase physical desire and sexual tension. Which can be a lot of fun if you’re already in a healthy relationship. If your partnership is strained, however, this energy can exacerbate existing problems.
If you’re single, you might find yourself drawn to people you normally wouldn’t be. Try to stay aware of this, because there’s danger that you could fall for someone that you’re not truly compatible with.
The Moon is Trine Uranus at 10:52 PM
Tonight the moon in Virgo forms a trine angle with Uranus in Taurus. This transit can bring change and excitement to your private life, but without all of the chaos. You could feel a little antsy, like something big is in the air. Trust your gut. As we’ve already discussed, your intuition is sharp today, and if you stay flexible and go with the flow, great things could happen.
You might work up the courage to break the ice with a new friend or possible lover, and as we already mentioned, you may find yourself attracted to those outside of your normal “type.” Just keep in mind that this energy is more impulsive and playful than commitment-minded. Get out there and try something new, whether in a social situation or in another activity.
This could be a great time to focus on breaking bad habits, or breaking out of relationships that have run their course. Emotional breakthroughs might show up tonight. Stay open minded and pay attention.
The Sun is Trine Neptune at 11:39 PM
A short time later, the sun in Scorpio forms a watery trine with Neptune in Pisces. This transit increases your sensitivity and heightens your empathy. You might find yourself drawn to causes related to the welfare of your community or environment.
This transit will also allow you to see your place in the grand scheme of things more clearly, and help you to set clear goals that will allow you to manifest your dreams.
You can expect your interest in creative or spiritual topics to be piqued at this time.
