The stars are giving summer a sweet send-off via today’s transits. The day starts off with a bit of a tumultuous opposition between the moon and Mars. But thankfully, a lunar sextile Saturn sets our mood and priorities straight.
The Moon Is Opposite Mars at 7:06 AM
This morning, the moon in Aries moves opposite of Mars in belligerent Libra. This transit could have us feeling a bit moody and temperamental for a spell. Things that we would typically gloss over or ignore suddenly get on our last nerve.
Just as the moon rules over the tides, it also rules over our emotions. In this placement, lunar Aries can increase our annoyance with minor inconveniences. On the other side of the opposition, Mars rules our drive and our willpower. It also governs how we handle our anger. When residing in Libra, Mars can contribute to vindictive behavior. With our emotions and strong will at odds with each other, we run the risk of taking our irritation out on others.
Impulsivity and aggression could be your downfall here, especially in your relationships with friends, family, or partners. You’ll need to stay conscious of this and exercise patience (check that gratitude list!) or else opt to spend some time alone. Physical exercise might help you to move that energy through.
The Moon Is Sextile Saturn at 12:44 PM
As we get ready to eat lunch, the moon in sanguine Aries forms a positive sextile with Saturn in compassionate Aquarius. This transit might have you dwelling on the health, safety, and overall well-being of your loved ones and your community. Thanks to Aquarius’ socially conscious nature, you may have an urge to physically feed, shelter, or protect them.
In this position, the moon in Aries can enhance our sentimentality and loyalty to our loved ones. Saturn governs our obligations and ambitions and when it resides in Aquarius, we can feel protective of our community. When these celestial bodies work in tandem, we work hard to ensure the welfare of those around us.
You could also be feeling wistful about loved ones and family or ancestors who are no longer with us. If that Aries energy is feeling abundant, public acts of service or demonstrations could be the answer. If you’re feeling introspective and melancholy, perhaps some time organizing photos or keepsakes could be healing.
