The stars have us vacillating between comfortable and uncomfortable aspects today, starting bright and early with a tug of war between our emotions and our thoughts, and ending right before midnight with some stressful moments with family or loved ones. But lucky for you, you’re armed and ready with the astrological weather report.
The Moon Is Square Mercury at 6:15 AM
Early this morning, the moon in Virgo forms a square with Mercury in Gemini. This transit is setting up a bit of a standoff between our emotions and our thoughts.
This could lead to some possible conflict and irritability. While you’re hashing things out in your own head, be careful not to push your opinions or criticism onto others. Your emotions are swaying your thoughts too much, and you could end up doing permanent harm to a relationship if you insist on a debate.
Instead, channel that energy in a more productive way. Maybe some time spent on intensive organizing could be beneficial? You’re in the perfect frame of mind to do some deep cleaning of your physical space.
The Moon Is Sextile Venus at 8:04 AM
A bit later this morning, the moon in Virgo forms a sextile with Venus in Cancer. When the moon is sextile Venus, it forms a tender, loving aspect. All types of relationships can flourish under this influence, but it’s especially auspicious for romantic pairings. You might even start a new relationship.
It brings about increased beauty, charm, social popularity, and successful dating experiences. It’s an ideal time to be with your partners and friends if you’re able to do so right now.
When Virgo (earth) and Cancer (water) mingle, they can kindle some playful, sensual energy. You might find yourself in the mood to seek out new experiences and people. Lean into it.
The Moon Is Opposite Neptune at 4:52 PM
Early on this evening, the moon in Virgo moves opposite Neptune in dreamy Pisces. You feel stuck in your own head, with heightened sensitivity and creativity. Just be careful not to overthink and hurt your own feelings, because you’re susceptible to that at the moment.
Your fears might try to overshadow your intuition. You may also be taking things others say personally or out of context. Don’t take your feelings too seriously right now. They’re only a temporary situation.
The Moon Is Trine Pluto at 10:10 PM
Tonight, the moon in Virgo forms a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. This might cause you to feel 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 Is Square the Sun at 11:53 PM
Just before midnight, the moon in Virgo forms a square with the Sun in Gemini, possibly introducing some stress and irritation in our home or family lives. Right now the sun is shining a light on our more negative inner emotions, habits, and unconscious reactions.
This is a catalyst for us to recognize the old beliefs and self-defeating thoughts that no longer serve us. We should focus on releasing these things from our lives in the time leading up to the full moon in Scorpio on April 26th.
