The Sun and Venus Want You to Break Out of Your Shell

We’re starting out our day with a burst of love and happiness, thanks to the Sun aligning with Venus, the planet of love and beauty. It could be a day of surprises and uncharacteristic boldness, though later tonight we could deal with some latent anger rising to the surface.

The Sun Is Conjunct Venus at 2:58 AM

While we were sleeping, the sun in fiery Aries forms a conjunct angle with, wouldn’t you know it, fiery Aries. This aspect is known to bring feelings of love, peace, harmony, and beauty—specifically to your romantic relationships, but also to your creativity and finances.

This transit is a good omen for friendships and romance, and all of that Aries energy has us feeling rather passionate and bold. Perhaps it’s a good time to get out and meet new people. Then again, you might be in the mood to just relax with your nearest and dearest amidst the creature comforts of your own home. Either route you take, watch that the hedonism doesn’t go overboard.

The Moon Is Trine Uranus at 2:16 PM

This afternoon, the moon in Virgo forms a trine with Uranus in Taurus, and this transit could bring change and excitement after being a bit stagnant for a while. You’re feeling like you’re on the brink of something new, and you should go with your gut.

A little impulsivity is welcome today. Not only because it will get you out of a rut, but because it could initiate or rekindle relationships that could ultimately be beneficial.

You may find yourself drawn to people from different cultures or backgrounds than your own, which is always a good thing. You may also find that you’re attracted to someone new, and outside your typical “type.”

Keep an open mind today, and pay attention to new opportunities that may present themselves. It’s an opportune time to try something new, or to break out of routines that have either become stale or unhealthy. If you’re currently in a relationship that’s fully run its course, that could be brought to the surface today.

The Moon Is Square Mars at 10:15 PM

Tonight, when the moon forms a square with Mars in Gemini, it can bring some anger to the surface. It will be incredibly important to remain aware of this so you don’t lose control of your temper and cause harm to those around you.

Be on guard for emotional attacks from others as well. You won’t help things by reacting in a rash or impulsive way. You also won’t be doing yourself any favors by bottling up these emotions. You’ll need to strike a balance today, perhaps by channeling that energy productively on your own. Physical activity or journaling could help here.
