At 1:13pm the Moon enters Sagittarius, lifting the mood significantly from the past few days. She will sextile Saturn this afternoon, encouraging us to follow through on things, but without being overbearing. Mercury’s sextile to Uranus brings some wild inspiration and possibly some new ways to communicate.
As the Moon trines Mars, the Sun and retrograde Venus conjoin today. We may aggressively revisit past issues and focus on cleaning up any messes that are lingering. Overnight the feeling turns softer and gentler as Luna trines Neptune, encouraging us to dream and fantasize.
Today’s Venus retrograde square to Mars may throw things off balance. The potential for both conflict and inspiration is high. Combined with the Moon’s ingress to Scorpio today, it could give a bit of a dark feeling. We wake up with Luna squaring Jupiter, making the start of the day lazier than it should be. At 12:05pm she enters Scorpio, and will soon after square Saturn, creating a bit of a whiplash feeling as we are forced to look at serious issues, especially if they relate to Venus and Mars issues (love, beauty, peace, self esteem / aggression, conflict, high-energy).

The Mooon trines a retrograde Venus today, bringing up issues from the past dealing with beauty, art, self-esteem, relationships, and fertility. Later she squares off with Pluto, encouraging us to fly off the handle and blow things out of proportion, or to ignore things that we shouldn’t. With Venus moving to square Mars tomorrow, we could see the beginnings of some conflicts start to brew.
Luna enters Libra at 10:37 am today, lightening the mood a bit as she trines Saturn from his sign of exaltation. It’s a good time to work on obligations, since they should flow easily now. The afternoon and early evening are difficult for communications, but the night is a nice one as the Sun and Moon are working in harmony now.
The challenging late-night energies continue this morning as Luna and Venus are at cross-purposes, making relationships difficult. Beauty and art are also a challenge. The afternoon could see us trying to determine reality vs. fantasy, and overnight we get to delve deep into psychological issues.
At 7:40 am, the Moon enters Virgo and then will connect with Mercury to encourage us to focus on details, especially as they relate to relationships and creativity. This evening, Luna picks up some challenging energy as we are drawn to slough off some dead ideas and move to new ones. Overnight, anger and frustration might bubble up to the surface as the Moon opposes Mars.
The morning’s gentle, dreamy start gives way to challenges from others this afternoon and evening. We may be facing our own authority issues, or being challenged to do the right thing. At 2:33 am tomorrow, Luna enters flashy Leo, and opposes Saturn upon arrival. Night owls may feel some loneliness and question their worth, but this will fade with the morning light.
