My Sign Says

The Moon in Capricorn Wants Us to Handle Things With Care

Thanks to the sun in Virgo and the moon in Capricorn, we are dealing with a lot of earthly energy today. This morning, a solar opposition with Neptune and a lunar square with Mars might make us uneasy around people, especially people who are determined to antagonize us. Later, as the moon moves into Capricorn and forms a sextile with Venus, we are more careful in our choices of companions. 

The Sun is Opposite Neptune at 4:54 AM

In the wee hours of the morning, the sun in Virgo moves opposite Neptune in Pisces, which can usher in feelings of insecurity and confusion. It can also invite deception into your life. It might be best to keep to yourself at this time. If you don’t want to be alone, at least surround yourself with people you trust completely.

You might feel anxious when dealing with people who are especially bold or competitive. And that’s for a good reason. Under this transit, we can attract people who’d like to take advantage of this more passive state. Trying to be nice or help people could be misconstrued as weakness or receptivity. Be on guard and don’t blindly trust anything or anyone.

The Moon Is Square Mars at 6:58 AM

A couple of hours later, when the moon in Sagittarius forms a square with Mars in Virgo, it can bring some moodiness to the surface. It will be incredibly important to remain aware of this so you don’t lose control of your temper and cause harm to those around you.

Be on guard for emotional attacks from others as well. You won’t help things by reacting in a rash or impulsive way. You also won’t be doing yourself any favors by bottling up these emotions. You’ll need to strike a balance today, perhaps by channeling that energy productively on your own. Physical activity or journaling could help here.

The Moon Moves into Capricorn at 7:35 AM

Around breakfast time, the moon moves into the earthy, grounded sign of Capricorn. Under a Capricorn moon, we’re inspired to get down to business. We want to feel productive and are looking for substance, not small talk. This transit is great for pushing past barriers and overcoming obstacles.

Capricorn lends patience and discipline to the emotional energy of the moon and everything we’re doing during this transit. You may find yourself feeling more thrifty and budget-conscious, as well as more careful and conservative in your decision-making. You’ll be less interested in taking risks than you are in building something that lasts.

What’s a good use of your time and energy right now? For the next couple of days, it might be best to establish a single goal and see it through to completion rather than multitasking.

The Moon Is Sextile Venus at 3:21 PM

This afternoon, the moon in Capricorn forms a sextile with Venus in Scorpio. When the moon is sextile Venus, it forms a tender, loving aspect. All types of relationships can flourish under this influence, but it’s especially auspicious for romantic pairings. You might even start a new relationship.

It brings about increased beauty, charm, social popularity, and successful dating experiences. It’s an ideal time to be with your partners and friends if you’re able to do so right now.

When Capricorn (earth) and Scorpio (water) mingle, they can create some playful, sensual energy. You might find yourself in the mood to seek out new experiences and people. Lean into it.

Mars Moves Into Libra at 8:08 PM

As we wind down from our day, Mars moves from Virgo to Libra. This transit can cause us to seek out a partner to balance us out. However, our quest for a companion may leave us disappointed. You may feel especially tired and emotionally low. On a positive note, this placement can give us a greater appreciation for our friends and social justice issues.
