Our day starts with a wistful, almost melancholy energy, possibly surrounding dreams we had about lost loved ones overnight. The morning will take a turn for the better, though, as the sun in Cancer forms a beautiful trine with Jupiter in Pisces.
Do what you can to hold onto that positivity, because later today Venus in Cancer faces off with Pluto in Capricorn, introducing themes of jealousy and manipulation to our relationships. Just remember to keep these energies in mind so you don’t do anything that could cause irreparable harm to those you love.
The Moon Is Sextile Saturn at 5:21 AM
Early this morning, the moon in Sagittarius forms a sextile with Saturn in Aquarius. This transit might have you dwelling on the health, safety, and overall well-being of your loved ones and your community. You may have an urge to physically feed, shelter, or protect them.
While this is a nurturing transit, you might not feel the urge to dwell on anything too emotionally heavy. You’d rather tend to the practical needs of your friends and family, not necessarily the emotional ones. But reaching out and offering a shoulder to cry on for someone in need will be satisfying to you both.
You could also be feeling wistful about loved ones and family or ancestors who are no longer with us. It’s possible they came to you in your dreams last night, and that you woke up missing them pretty badly.
If you’re feeling introspective and melancholy, perhaps spending some time today reminiscing with shared loved ones or organizing photos or keepsakes could be healing.
The Sun Is Trine Jupiter at 7:18 AM
Later this morning, the sun in Cancer forms a trine with Jupiter in Pisces. This is one of the most positive transits possible. It blesses us with confidence, enthusiasm, and an overall good mood. This could make you want to sit back and enjoy all the happy vibes, but good fortune is on your side today, so taking it easy could lead to some missed rare opportunities.
You should have a warm, friendly feeling for just about everyone this morning, so take advantage and do some socializing if possible. You could also be presented with opportunities for personal, spiritual, or even financial growth.
This is a good day to take stock of where you are in your life, and if you’re on the track you truly want to be. Because of your innate optimism this morning, it’s an excellent time to look at things objectively without the risk of falling into a funk.
The Moon Is Opposite Mercury at 10:50 AM
A few hours later, the moon in mutable fire sign Sagittarius forms an opposition with Mercury in mutable air sign Gemini. When the moon faces off with Mercury, two things can happen. One: you’ll be caught up in a war between your thoughts and your emotions. Or two: those energies will combine and open the door to eye-opening discussions and discoveries about your own soul.
Oppositions can be challenging, but they can also hold a mirror up to ourselves and force issues of self-growth. This isn’t a great time for being around a large group of people. It’s more suited to spend time on your own in self-reflection or to be around a trusted friend that will let you talk things out without judgment.
Venus Is Opposite Pluto at 6:10 PM
Venus is the planet of love and beauty, and is currently in the sign of emotional Cancer. Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth, and is currently in grounded Capricorn. When these two planets dance, it can turn everything we know about our relationships on its head.
Don’t be shocked if your closest relationships start feeling like they’re under pressure. This transit can introduce themes of suspicion, jealousy, possessiveness, manipulation, and power plays. (Are we having fun yet?)
If you’re in a committed partnership, you may find yourself motivated by envy, desire, or greediness. It’s possible you’ll deceive or manipulate your partner in order to get them to act how you want. But heads up, they’re being influenced by the same planetary energies. They’ll be suspicious of your motivations, which will introduce even more pressure.
If you’re currently single, be especially skeptical of and cautious around anyone you feel a strong attraction to right now. You’re acting on impulse and prone to rash decisions. You’re also intrigued by the dark and mysterious right now, and could attract someone who will mistreat you. Try to keep your eyes open for clues to a violent, abusive, or criminal past.
The Moon Is Square Neptune at 10:07 PM
Tonight, the moon in Sagittarius squares off with Neptune in dreamy Pisces. This might have us feeling a bit raw and sensitive, and 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 toward 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.
