Today, Mercury forms a sextile with Uranus, increasing our curiosity and decreasing our inhibitions. Later, the moon forms a sextile with Saturn, turning us into the quintessential “mom-friend.”
Mercury is Sextile Uranus at 6:01 AM
This morning, Mercury in creative Cancer forms a sextile angle with Uranus in grounded Taurus, stimulating personal encounters and exciting events. This transit has us feeling open to change, and might even urge us to seek it out. It’s a great time to try something new because of these lowered inhibitions.
You’re restless, but pleasantly so. You may find yourself searching for new experiences, and even new people. You might feel like you need to shake up the people around you to jog them out of their complacency. Or, if you’re not entirely conscious of this desire, you might attract people into your life who will shake you up. Others may feel you’re acting rather odd today, like you’re out of sorts. But with your inhibitions lowered, you can embrace the attention toward this usually hidden aspect of your personality.
Our intuitions are sharpened by this placement, and we’re blessed with quick decision-making abilities. Follow your instincts and make the most of every opportunity you’re granted. You are likely to receive flashes of insight on how to solve long-term problems in new, creative ways.
You’ll be looking for ways to shake things up intellectually, as well. Under this transit, we’re attracted to new philosophies and ways of thinking. You might even be intrigued by a new subject matter altogether and wish to learn all about it. Though you should think about if you have the follow-through to make much headway in this new venture.
The Moon Is Sextile Saturn at 11:28 AM
Later, 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.
