The Moon in Aquarius Wants You to Stand Up for Those in Need

Between a Virgo sun and a Capricorn moon, we have been surrounded by a lot of stable and earthly energy lately. But now lunar Aquarius is here to shake things up! Virgo still wants you to keep both feet planted firmly on the ground but Aquarius and Libra want you to spin the wheels of justice!

The Sun Is Trine the Moon at 12:10 AM

In the wee hours of the morning, the sun in Virgo forms an earthy trine with the Moon in Capricorn. This placement brings two energies into harmony. In this case, it’s the sun (who represents our will and overall vitality) and the moon (who represents our emotional lives).

In other words, this transit brings our conscious mind and our emotional awareness into harmony, allowing us to feel comfortable in our own skin. There’s an attitude of “what you see is what you get.” No pretense, no games.

This transit brings an overall sense of peace, happiness, and good fortune. It also might create a need or urge for spontaneity, and it’s a great day to get out and socialize with your friends and loved ones if you are able.

The Moon Is Conjunct Pluto at 1:34 AM

A little while 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 Moon Moves into Aquarius at 11:27 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 Mars at 1:23 PM

Around lunchtime, the moon in Aquarius forms a trine with Mars in Libra, bringing with it some seriously spicy energy. This aspect has us feeling daring, sexy, and charismatic, and urges us to make the first move and take the lead.

You’ll find you intuitively know what you want and how to get it, especially in your relationships. It’s OK to be direct and assertive; there’s no reason to fear being bossy or taken the wrong way. Even if you’re typically shy, take advantage of this bout of uncharacteristic boldness.

This is also a time when you’ll find it easier than normal to stand up for yourself and your loved ones in challenging situations. Your energy and enthusiasm will draw people in, and quite honestly will be contagious. You’re a force to be reckoned with. Do something productive with that.

The Sun Is Trine Pluto at 7:51 PM

Early this evening, the sun in Virgo forms a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. This is one of the most positive transits possible. It blesses us with strength, vitality, and social success. Pluto governs our primal energy and our ability to create. And when it is positioned in Capricorn and coupled with Virgo’s industrious energy, it can endow us with the ability to transform ourselves into the leaders we are meant to be.

Channel your charisma and pragmatism to accomplish your goals today. You are on the precipice of greatness!
