Venus Is Square Mars Today, and Sparks Are Gonna Fly

With Venus forming a square with Mars this evening, our love lives are being tested. You might be feeling a little friskier or more adventurous than normal. Is your current relationship standing strong enough to handle that pressure?

The Moon Is Trine Pluto at 2:19 AM

Overnight, the moon in Taurus formed a trine angle with Pluto in Capricorn. This might have caused you to wake up feeling extra sensitive. You’re feeling things more powerfully and are easily moved by people—perhaps one person in particular, with whom you likely share karmic ties.

You’ll also find yourself delving deep into everyone’s emotions today, and you’re drawn to darker, unspoken, or taboo subjects.

Pluto is a planet of transformation; it creates space for reflection. This would be a great time to slow down and take stock of the personal transformations these past few months have brought.

It’s also worth taking a look at the transformations this time has brought to society as a whole. Pluto is the planet of destruction and rebirth, and it’s currently in the sign of Capricorn, which rules finances, business, and government. Just think about that for a minute.

The Moon Moves into Gemini at 11:02 AM

Later this morning, things take a turn for the brighter when the moon moves into the sign of playful, chatty, curious Gemini. A Gemini moon puts us in the mood for socializing—but nothing too heavy, please! We’re in social butterfly mode, wanting to flit from person to person. There’s nothing we want more than to make the rounds in a light-hearted, fun-loving circuit.

We’re more prone to short attention spans right now, and probably find ourselves deflecting uncomfortable situations or sticky emotions with humor. We’re also highly curious—Gemini is the first air sign of the zodiac and it ushers in an, um, air of endless possibilities. (Sorry.)

There’s a bit of jittery energy that comes with the territory, which some might enjoy as the buzz of excitement. But if you’re prone to nervous tension or anxiety it could be a bit more uncomfortable for you. Try to channel that energy into something active. Go on an adventure. Seek out new people and experiences. Invite your friends to a backyard shindig.

If you’ve been working on a project or creative idea, you might find that today would be an epic day for a stream-of-consciousness brainstorming sesh. There are no bad ideas today. Don’t pass judgment on the thoughts flitting through your brain. Just write them down as quickly as you can.

Venus Is Square Mars at 6:27 PM

This evening, Venus in innovative Aquarius squares off with Mars in grounded Taurus. This transit can bring a ton of excitement, and no small amount of friction. On the one hand, it can seriously increase your sex drive. On the other, if there are any existing areas of tension or frustration around your love life with your partner, they’ll be highlighted today.

Though it’s probably not the best time to have a big conversation trying to get to the bottom of those problems. Save that for a more grounded aspect.

If you’re in a relationship where both of you are self-assured, it should be a pretty exciting time. If you’re single, this transit will make you more attractive to those around you. (In other words, your aura will match your sex drive.)

Just make sure not to lower your standards just because you’re feeling a little frisky. This is a fun transit, but not necessarily one that promises a great and lasting love affair.

You’re feeling a bit rash and impulsive, and that can come out in anger. Try to remember that compromise could be the key to avoiding knock-down, drag-out fights with those around you. You don’t want to burn any bridges just because of a temporary mood.

All aspects mentioned here are calculated in Eastern Standard Time. For greater accuracy, please adjust for your time zone.
