We’ve got a lot of activity going on around us, astrologically speaking. Things are feeling chaotic, not unlike our current political climate. Brace yourself for an emotional rollercoaster today. You’ll need to strike a balance between expressing yourself freely and avoiding the pitfalls of contentious encounters with others.
Mercury is Square Saturn at 1:08 AM
Shortly after midnight, Mercury in Libra formed a square with Saturn in Capricorn for a fleeting but challenging transit. Keep an eye on your communication today—missteps and misunderstandings could materialize.
In the early part of the day, it might be better to work alone. If we don’t feel like we’re being seen or heard by those around us, or that we can’t truly get through to someone, it might be better to spend a bit of time on our own. Today especially, try to avoid contentious discussions with people you know don’t agree with you. (Like, you know, political ones.)
You can also fall into the trap of gloomy, depressive thoughts, and you might experience some pangs of loneliness. Try to keep in mind this is just a temporary influence, and things aren’t all that dire in real life.
The Moon is Trine Neptune at 4:10 AM
In the wee small hours of the morning, the moon in emotional Cancer formed a trine aspect with Neptune in dreamy Pisces. All of this watery energy brings about a time of introspection and imagination. This morning would be a great time to focus on creative projects, especially those involving film or video. Working in front of a mirror could also spark some serious creativity.
This is also a good time to meet, or call in, a future partner. Your friends may also seek you out, either for support or advice. You’re happy to oblige both. In fact, you might feel like seeking out ways to support others, perhaps with charitable or humanitarian work, or using your art and influence to draw attention to a cause.
Your intuition is quite strong this morning, so pay attention to any psychic flashes or hits you might receive. It would be a great time to delve into a divination practice.
The Moon is Opposite Jupiter at 11:07 AM
Later this morning, the pendulum swings in the opposite direction, as the moon moves in opposition to Jupiter. With it comes a need to express ourselves, regardless of the consequences.
Moon opposite Jupiter transit brings good feelings and generosity but also the potential for lack of self-control and unwanted attention. Bottling our emotions only leads to explosive outcomes later, so it’s best to try to stay as open as possible throughout the day. But again, be cognizant that fraught and contentious conversations are very likely today.
The Moon is Opposite Pluto at 12:32 PM
This afternoon, sweet emotional Cancer leans into her more protective and secretive side as she moves in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. This placement can bring about abrupt and complex feelings of lack and inadequacy, and cause us to turn inward and try to bottle up our emotions, unable to express what’s going on.
It can also bring on feelings of wanting to hide or numb our feelings away. This placement can stir up relationship drama. Try to stay aware of these inclinations, and find a way to express yourself that’s uplifting and productive.
The Moon is Opposite Saturn at 7:51 PM
Tonight, the moon moves into an opposition with Saturn in Capricorn. You might be feeling a bit sad, bored, or lonely. Your mood is infectious to those around you right now, and could lead to some issues in your relationships if you take things out on them by laying guilt trips or moping around.
This is especially true with the female relationships in your life. You might need to keep to yourself and ride out this funk for the evening.
The Moon is Square Mercury 8:30 PM
A bit later tonight, the moon in Cancer forms a square with Mercury in Virgo. 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. 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.
