We just had a long weekend and now we are halfway to the next one! Libra wants to make sure that we are balanced today. Around noon, the moon in Libra forms a trine with Saturn in Aquarius, endowing us with patience and emotional fortitude. Later, the moon forms a conjunction with Mercury in, you guessed it, Libra. This transit allows us to look back on our lives and take stock of our emotions.
The Moon Is Trine Saturn at 12:25 PM
Just as we are getting ready to eat lunch, the moon in diplomatic Libra forms a trine with Saturn in compassionate Aquarius. This placement brings about the patience and emotional strength (or perhaps detachment) to allow you to handle sensitive or difficult relationship issues. It also brings on strong instincts of common sense, allowing you to make important decisions about home, family, and relationships.
The moon governs our emotions, and when it resides in Libra, we feel unbiased and courteous when interacting with others. Meanwhile, Saturn brings our responsibilities to the forefront of our minds. And when it is happy at home in its ancient sign, Aquarius, we are overwhelmed with our sense of duty to the ones we hold dear.
This is an incredibly stabilizing transit, and generally puts us into a very reserved and conservative state of mind. However, its influence on us today is fleeting.
The Moon Is Conjunct Mercury at 9:00 PM
As the Virgo sun sets, the moon in Libra forms a conjunction with Mercury, also in Libra. This transit can bring out some feelings of increased sensitivity and make mood swings likely. It can cause us to feel overly sentimental and nostalgic.
Mercury rules our communication and our understanding of the world. When occupying Libra, we feel compelled to think back on our memories and figure out how it led us to where we are.
Our intuition and psychic abilities are sharpened under this placement, but our judgment could be clouded by emotional attachment. It would be good to channel these intense energies into art—specifically writing or speaking. Communication is the key, and it could be a chance to get some things off your chest. Spend some time journaling today, and seek out the counsel (or just the ear) of a trusted woman in your family or circle to help you talk through things.
