Stubborn Capricorn wants to butt heads with everyone, but considerate Aquarius wants to let the love flow. And poor Libra is stuck in the middle trying to balance everything out. We will have to brace ourselves for an uncomfortable square between the moon and Pluto. But once we get through that, we can enjoy a pleasant trine between the moon and Jupiter.
The Moon Is Square Pluto at 4:37 PM
This afternoon, the moon in Libra forms a square with Pluto in grounded Capricorn. This transit causes our impulsiveness to butt up against a bit of introspection, and that can lead to some discomfort.
The moon rules our emotions and when placed in Libra, we can become despondent. Pluto governs our instincts and self-preservation. When working with Capricorn, it can make us defensive and arrogant. This square may also lead to some compulsive or destructive behavior, so don’t be shocked if long-buried wounds or traumas are pulled to the surface.
It’s quite possible that some of these wounds have to do with family history. These signs in this placement may invite vindictive tendencies. Be on the lookout for emotional power struggles with family members or partners, or reliving past events to feed the grudge monster.
You might wake up in a funk after some uncomfortable dreams. This isn’t fun by any means, but it’s very important not to bury things even further. You need to find a way for that energy to move through you. Talk to a friend, get your thoughts down on paper, or seek out the counsel of a professional. And keep in mind that this is only a temporary transit.
The Moon Is Trine Jupiter at 5:05 PM
Less than an hour later, the moon in Libra forms a trine with Jupiter in compassionate Aquarius, and it puts us in a pleasant, lighthearted state of mind. It’s an ideal time to share your emotions with others. Your relationships will benefit from openness and honesty.
Jupiter rules our success and fortune and when it works in tandem with the zodiac revolutionary, Aquarius, we wish to share our good fortune with our loved ones. Even if we don’t have much material wealth to share, we can share kind words and greet others with a positive attitude.
You’re in a generous mood and feeling very sociable. This transit can bring about social success and material gain.
