Capricorn brings some intense emotional energy to the surface today. These emotions, both positive and negative, are enhanced by watery Cancer and Pisces. As the sun goes down, and the moon reaches its fullest point in Aquarius, we look for purpose within ourselves.
The Moon Is Opposite Mercury at 3:55 AM
In the wee hours of the morning, the moon in cardinal earth sign Capricorn forms an opposition with Mercury in cardinal water sign Cancer. 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.
The Moon Is Sextile Neptune at 8:32 AM
Around breakfast time, the moon in earthy Capricorn moves sextile of Neptune in dreamy Pisces. Expect this to bring up an active, vivid imagination and a good dose of empathy. Your sensitivity and emotions will be heightened, and you’ll feel more in touch with not only your own feelings but those around you as well.
You’re especially sensitive to negative energies this afternoon. Your intuition and psychic abilities are heightened at this time. It’s a fantastic opportunity to work with a divination practice. Keep a journal with you to record any flashes of insight you get this morning.
The Moon Is Conjunct Pluto at 12:27 PM
Around noon, the moon in Capricorn forms a conjunction with Pluto, also in Capricorn. This transit can bring up some deep, overwhelming feelings. It’s possible that an interaction with someone in person or online could trigger some old wounds that you would rather stay buried. This could turn into a fixation.
Your dreams from last night could have a lasting impact on your mood today, and you’re prone to psychic hits and intuitive insights. Reach for your journal, your cards, or your phone so you can work things out with a trusted friend. Spending some time with girlfriends today could be very helpful in moving sticky or stagnant emotions through.
You’re feeling everything so deeply right now, so the chance of overreacting or taking things too personally is pretty high. Keep that in mind when dealing with your loved ones.
The Moon Moves into Aquarius at 8:11 PM
When the moon is in Aquarius, there’s a certain energy that’s palpable in the air. It’s an urge to shake things up. We’re highly social, but in a more abstract, cerebral kind of way. If you’ve been feeling mired in your own emotions lately, Aquarius can feel like a relief. It allows us to stand back, view things objectively, and create a new plan of action.
Aquarius is the sign of the visionary, so expect those intuitive hits to keep on coming. Your mind may be blown more than once over the next two days. This transit also has us wanting to connect with everybody and learn from the experiences of others. Humanitarian thoughts and plans become something of a preoccupation. We can start to see our places in the world as a whole, and can focus on the evolution of humankind.
On the flip side, it’s possible that this Aquarian energy can make you feel like retreating into your own little world. That’s okay too. We all need to recharge once in a while.
The Full Moon in Aquarius Occurs at 10:37 PM
This evening, the moon in Aquarius becomes full. Aquarian energy brings us beauty, creativity, and love—but also a desire for individuality and emotional freedom. You might be on the cusp of a big next step or decision, and you’re anxious to get going.
The key is to approach these decisions from a place of calm and stillness so that you can hear your intuition—your higher self—through the noise of all the other ideas (and self-limiting beliefs) swirling around in your mind right now. The answers you’re looking for are already inside you. You just need to trust yourself.
