Secret emotions and desires are erupting from the deepest, darkest part of our soul thanks to Scorpio. The moon and Venus are moving from tender-hearted Libra into hot-blooded Scorpio. Read on to find out why we are in for a wild ride.
The Moon Is Conjunct Venus at 12:45 AM
When the moon in Libra forms a conjunction with Venus, also in Libra, it can usher in a sense of peace and harmony, a desire for beauty, and heightened sexual energy. It brings our emotions to the surface and makes us more sensitive to everything around us—the good and the bad. Luckily, we’re more likely to attract the good under this influence.
You’ll also be seeking ways to bring more beauty into your life and home, which might lead to a bit of retail therapy. Just be careful not to let your emotions outweigh your common sense when you’re up at the cash register.
The Moon Moves into Scorpio at 2:02 AM
While we slept, the moon moved into reflective Scorpio. Scorpio moons have a dark, intense, and passionate energy. Scorpio likes to explore the depths of our psyches.
This moon brings out an increased psychic focus, which helps us read people and their motivations in an uncanny way. Scorpio reminds us to look a little bit closer, and to dig a little bit deeper, to see what’s really going on under the surface. There’s no room for small talk right now. We’re ready to explore the uncomfortable subjects that will ultimately lead to our healing.
The Scorpio moon also awakens a sense of sensuality and intensely passionate energy. How that energy is channeled is up to you. It can be destructive, or it can be a little fun. Don’t be scared to lean into your dark and twisty side. We’ve all got them.
The Moon Is Square Saturn at 2:48 PM
This afternoon, the moon in Scorpio forms a square aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. Squares between the moon and Saturn can cause serious bouts of moodiness and moments of depression, and you may find yourself dredging up past grief and other unresolved matters.
This transit might leave you with a slightly restless feeling. A bout of low self-esteem could keep you from openly sharing your emotions, and you might be feeling more isolated and distant from your loved ones than you have been lately.
Take some time to journal your feelings, and see if you can parse any lessons from these energies and the encounters they’ve prompted. Then, take some time to write down some things you’re grateful for to bolster your mood a bit.
Venus Moves Into Scorpio at 4:38 PM
Later, Venus joins the moon in Scorpio. Venus rules our feelings of love and our appreciation of beauty. Under this transit, we feel desirable and indulgent! You actively seek out the things that bring you great pleasure. Go for it! It’s the weekend which means it is time to live it up!
