Pluto and Neptune Won’t Make Things Easy Today

Overnight, the moon and Saturn form an airy trine that stabilizes our mood and probably gives us lovely dreams. But this morning, and for the rest of the day in fact, the planets are conspiring to bring us irritability, aggression, and confusion. Watch your step out there today.

The Moon Is Trine Saturn at 3:50 AM

While we were sleeping, the moon in Gemini formed a trine with Saturn in Aquarius. This placement brings about the ability to articulate your thoughts clearly (and also a bit of emotional detachment) to allow you to handle sensitive or difficult relationship issues. It also brings on strong instincts of common sense, allowing you to make important decisions about home, family, and relationships.

This is an incredibly stabilizing transit and generally puts us into a very reserved and pragmatic state of mind. But as it happened in the middle of the night, you might not experience much of that, save waking up with a sense of peace.

The Sun Is Square Pluto At 7:45 AM

Later in the morning, the sun in impetuous Aries forms a square with Pluto in grounded Capricorn. This is a very tense aspect. Under this placement, we throw caution to the wind, and can also err on the side of being argumentative with those around us. Pluto lives to dismantle and cause chaos, and squaring up with the sun brings some previously downplayed drama to the surface.

This transit can also give us an inflated sense of self-importance. This ill-advised confidence can spell trouble. Keep in mind that you’re only mortal, and think before you leap. Practice caution today, especially when you get behind the wheel. This combination of irritability and recklessness can make us think we are invincible, but we are not. Be safe out there, for your sake and for the sake of others.

The Moon Is Square Neptune at 11:13 PM

Tonight, the moon in Gemini squares off with Neptune in dreamy Pisces. This might have us feeling a bit raw and sensitive, even questioning reality. You’re incredibly susceptible to outside influences right now, and it can be hard to tell what opinions are yours and what you’ve picked up from others. The same thing goes for emotions, and that can be downright exhausting.

Your psychic urges could be heightened. There might even be a pull to deal your tarot deck or grab another divination tool. Just keep in mind that messages won’t be super clear right now, so write everything down to interpret later.

Because this transit happens so late in the evening, it’s possible these influences will come to you in dreamland. Journal accordingly, and parse for insight later.
