My Sign Says

Uranus Is in Retrograde and We Are Awake

The moon in Capricorn blesses the first half of our day with an exciting trine and a sweet sextile. But as the sun begins to set and Uranus goes retrograde, we may feel a bit overwhelmed with all of our emotions. Do not be afraid of this retrograde. It can awaken us out of a stagnated slumber.

The Moon Is Trine Uranus at 3:05 AM

In the wee hours of the morning, the moon in Capricorn forms a trine with Uranus in Taurus, and this transit could bring change and excitement after being a bit stagnant for a while. You’re feeling like you’re on the brink of something new, and you should go with your gut.

A little impulsivity is welcome today. Not only because it will get you out of a rut, but because it could initiate or rekindle relationships that could ultimately be beneficial.

You may find yourself drawn to people from different cultures or backgrounds than your own, which is always a good thing. You may also find that you’re attracted to someone new, and outside your typical “type.”

Keep an open mind today, and pay attention to new opportunities that may present themselves. It’s an opportune time to try something new or to break out of routines that have either become stale or unhealthy. If you’re currently in a relationship that’s fully run its course, that could be brought to the surface today.

The Moon Is Sextile Neptune at 3:59 PM

Later in the afternoon, 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.

Uranus Is in Retrograde at 5:24 PM

Uranus — the planet of rebellion and innovation — goes retrograde this evening in the sign of Taurus. Most people think of retrogrades as forces of chaos and undoing. And they may be correct in this case, but that is not necessarily a negative thing. This retrograde gives us a rude, but much-needed awakening.

Now is the time to reexamine your position in life, and forge a new path.

The Moon Is Conjunct Pluto at 7:52 PM

A couple hours later, 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 Sun Is Opposite Jupiter at 9:30 PM

Just before bedtime, the sun in bombastic Leo forms an opposition with Jupiter in temperamental Aquarius. In opposing transits, there’s always a possibility to feel the planetary energies twice over. And with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, amplifying the energy of the Sun, you’ve got a recipe for some out-of-the-ordinary bravery and self-confidence. This transit could quite possibly have you feeling like you can take on the world. Which isn’t a bad thing, until it is.

Be wary of overindulgence in just about everything today. Because of Leo’s influence, you might feel like you can share your opinions on things you wouldn’t normally. Which will feel pretty great at the time, but when these energies wane, you’ll be left to deal with the fallout of anyone you’ve hurt with your words. You may have a lot to say, but say so with tact and don’t overstep your bounds. This is especially true for employers, managers, or elder relatives.

In the same vein, you might feel like you could tackle all that life throws at you today, but don’t overcommit for tomorrow. You might regret the bold claims you made while you were high on Jupiter’s supply.
