Lunar Aquarius Wants Us to Lead the Revolution

Happy Friday! It really is going to be a happy Friday with all the wonderful transits happening in the sky today. Early this morning after Mercury and Uranus form a creative trine, the moon will glide over to Aquarius. Under these placements, our intuition and innovation will know no bounds.

Mercury Is Trine Uranus at 4:41 AM

While we slept, Mercury in Virgo formed a trine with Uranus in Taurus. This transit brings with it a burst of intuition and energy. You’ll be in the mood to tackle difficult problems that you haven’t known how to deal with until now. Virgo will allow you to find innovative solutions using creative thinking.

Take pride in your unconventional ways. Originality will benefit you greatly and get you noticed at work. Thanks to our rapport and rhetoric, stage fright is all but nonexistent right now, so presentations should go over well.

The Moon Moves into Aquarius at 5:41 AM

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 Moon Is Trine Venus at 2:03 PM

This afternoon, the moon in Aquarius forms a trine with Venus in Libra, bringing a welcome bit of love and tenderness to our collective mood. And maybe a bit of nostalgia. You could have the urge to connect with long-lost friends or rethink past events that jeopardized your relationships.

The moon trine Venus is a very maternal aspect, so you may have babies on the brain. Or, less literally, you might simply feel a strong urge to nurture and protect those around you—especially those going through a tough time right now.

The moon and Venus amp up our charm and attractiveness, and you’ll find you’re quite persuasive with those around you. It’s a great time to go after a promotion, a loan, or a favor. You can also use this energy to stand up for others.

You might be struck with a burst of creative energy. Aquarius will have you wanting to express yourself in offbeat ways while Venus wants you to create beauty. How can you best reconcile the two?

The Moon is Conjunct Saturn at 7:53 PM

Tonight, the moon in Aquarius forms a conjunction with Saturn, also in Aquarius. This transit can bring up some tensions in close relationships. It could also make you want to distance yourself from that discomfort. If you stay present and face these challenging situations head-on, it could be an amazing opportunity for growth and healing. But sometimes the healthiest thing you can do for a relationship is to give it a little space and spend some time on your own.
