The Sun and Mars Will Set Your Energy Ablaze

We woke up today feeling a bit out of sorts, with the moon and Uranus causing some impulsivity but also some wildly creative ideas. This afternoon will be a bit tougher, with the moon squaring off against Saturn and our insecurities getting the better of us. But by tonight we’ll get a hit of high energy and productivity off of the sun’s dance with Mars. Not a bad note to end things on.

The Moon Is Conjunct Uranus at 9:25 AM

This morning, the moon in earthy Taurus goes conjunct of Uranus, also in Taurus. This can bring about sudden flashes of insight as our psychic abilities are stimulated. We’re feeling impatient and impulsive, and have an urge to act on gut instinct.

The moon in Taurus offers emotional awareness, and Uranus in Taurus brings creativity and invention to the table. This could be a great time to try out some off-the-wall ideas. Don’t think too hard about it. Just do.

The Moon Is Square Saturn at 2:31 PM

This afternoon, the moon in Taurus 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.

This mood is pretty consistent with the day up until this point. 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.

The Sun Is Sextile Mars at 7:37 PM

This evening, the sun in fiery Aries forms a sextile with Mars in playful Gemini. We may have had a bit of a trying day up until this point, but things are starting to feel a bit lighter now. This transit brings on a decent hit of self-confidence and physical vitality. Your energy levels are rising and it would be a great time to get into some heavy physical activity or even manual labor.

That confidence boost means it would be an excellent time to step up into a leadership role in your career — or to at least let people know you have your eye on it. It would also be a good time to jump into a new business venture or creative project.

Your personal relationships could benefit from this boost of confidence and vitality as well, with your sex drive running at a higher level than normal.
