Today’s Moodiness Is Brought to You by the Moon in Scorpio

While we were sleeping, the moon moved from light and airy Libra into deep, introspective Scorpio. Be prepared for this to shape our mood throughout the day. Things are feeling a bit… heavy. But there’s always a reason, and when Scorpio comes calling it’s an invitation to sit with those uncomfortable feelings rather than run away from them. They have something to teach us.

The Moon Moves into Scorpio at 1:35 AM

Overnight, the moon moved into reflective Scorpio. Scorpio moons have a dark, intense, and passionate energy. Scorpio likes to explore the depths of our psyches.

This moon brings out an increased psychic focus, which helps us read people and their motivations in an uncanny way. Scorpio reminds us to look a little bit closer, and to dig a little bit deeper, to see what’s really going on under the surface. There’s no room for small talk right now. We’re ready to explore the uncomfortable subjects that will ultimately lead to our healing.

The Scorpio moon also awakens a sense of sensuality and intensely passionate energy. How that energy is channeled is up to you. It can be destructive, or it can be a little fun. Don’t be scared to lean into your dark and twisty side. We’ve all got them.

Venus Is Sextile Saturn at 11:23 AM

Late this morning, Venus in Aries forms a sextile with Saturn in Aquarius. You may find yourself craving company or even companionship more than normal under this transit. But while you want to feel loved, you also want it to be real, not just fleeting lip service. You might be seeking validation, but you’re also doing your fair share of doting on others right now.

It could be possible for new relationships to begin under this transit, but you’ve got no time for flings. You’re looking for something that will stick. Falling for someone older and more serious or stable is a possibility.

This isn’t a lovesick phase, though. You might be looking, but you’ll do so with your head planted firmly on your shoulders. That means knowing who to steer clear of, and when to realize when a partnership has run its course.

The Moon Is Opposite Uranus at 3:59 PM

This afternoon, the moon in Scorpio moves opposite Uranus in Taurus for a slightly uneasy-feeling, and perhaps even shocking transit. We might experience some emotional turmoil based on new information or revelations, quite possibly having to do with our families. Uranus likes to shake things up, and sometimes it can go looking for buried secrets or taboo subjects that we’d rather remain hidden.

This placement can have us feeling cagey, with our independence at the top of our priority list. We also might be looking for a fight, with an urge to pick at someone just to get a reaction. The heavy energy of the past weeks may be weighing on us, and we’re unsure of how to work through it.

It will be important to remain aware of the energies at work here. Remain calm and centered. Don’t pass the buck, this issue won’t disappear by shoving it onto the people around you and then running away.

The Moon Is Square Saturn at 7:39 PM

This evening, the moon in Scorpio forms a square aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. Squares between the moon and Saturn can cause serious bouts of moodiness and moments of depression, and you may find yourself dredging up past grief and other unresolved matters.

This transit might leave you with a slightly restless feeling. A bout of low self-esteem could keep you from openly sharing your emotions, and you might be feeling more isolated and distant from your loved ones than you have been lately.

Take some time to journal your feelings, and see if you can parse any lessons from these energies and the encounters they’ve prompted. Then, take some time to write down some things you’re grateful for to bolster your mood a bit.
