We're set up to meet some challenges today as the Moon and Saturn meet. It looks more serious business than just a Monday holiday in the USA. Saturn encourages or pushes us to face realities, make mature decisions, and stop ignoring problems. Use today to get your act together in some way if necessary. Spend time on things that require deliberation and objectivity. Get advice. Libra this is directly in your sign and you may be getting used to this cycle. Take the next step in the process. Aries, this is relationship and commmitment oriented. Are you doing what you really want to or are you following someone else's lead all the time? Virgo, consider business and employment decisions seriously. The Moon squares Venus in Capricorn adding to the relationship equation. Some intense couples' debates and questions of who we want to align ourselves with and why are in the forefront today and tonight. It's also a Mercury day as the messenger planet moves to Pisces, really shifting the vibe to more emotional thoughts and actions at 3:54 pm EST. Mercury in Pisces is creative but vulnerable. Artists may thrive creatively but find themselves in personal upheaval. Emotions are sparked tonight. Pisces, make healthy personal connections only and stay away from people who drain you. Virgo that goes for you in close relationships and Scorpio for you with friends, who may seem to be all over the place, only confusing matters. We might look back on today as a pivotal or unusual one when all is said and done. Wear light blue.
Harmonious aspects in the zodiac will be welcome as the Moon moves to Scorpio and works with heavenly bodies in Capricorn and Pisces. The Sun and Moon form a favorable trine with a nice combination of determination and willingness to change. Mercury, newly in Pisces, helps us act with more feeling and compassion for other people, tempering the sometimes edgy Scorpio Moon some. The Moon and Pluto say we must deal with secrets and private matters and may have to fess up, but it easier with the two in harmony and if forgiveness is needed it's more likely than on a usual Scorpio Moon day. Today has it's own intensity, but things we think will be difficult may not be after all! Deal with things calmly and creatively. Mars moves to Pisces at 8:08 pm, It's not the most comfortable sign for the most masculine warrior planet, but Mars in Pisces helps us channel emotional energy in productive ways so it's a good time to start painting, playing music or building things again. Whatever pastime makes you feel good is worth your time, including art for art's sake. Wear red.
The Moon moves through Scorpio mostly uninterrupted and that's how the day should be! Work through personal business and stay focused. It's a do not disturb sort of day when we can really accomplish or just attend to our own priorities. Scorpio Moon is organized and determined. It can be an addictive sign so if you feel a little bit compulsive or driven strongly, use it in a positive way! What we don't want to do is fall back into old emotional habits or patterns. Tonight, the Moon aligns with Venus which is good for our personal relationships, with siblings, family or romantic connections. Reach out to people and have heart to hearts or just enjoy good company and trusted companions. Wear maroon.
After just about 1 1/2 hours void of course the Moon moves to Sagittarius at 7:26 am and the last quarter Moon marks the evening. Sagittarius Moon may activate some of that fiery Full Moon feeling from the end of last week which can be good for motivation! We'll want to break out of ruts and get past stuck points today. There are squares in the zodiac that say this may be easier said than done, however since they involve Pisces and Sagittarius it's more a matter of how-to rather than whether to. Figure out best possible ways to move, learn, and break down barriers. Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini, this can be very much your day to make a breakthrough! Tonight is full of opportunity and thirst for travel and other new experiences. Leo, Aquarius and Aries, social plans suit you. Pisces and Sagittarius you might be working hard on something important to you and work the time and effort. Wear purple.
The Moon is in Sagittarius and the Sun meets Mercury in Pisces. Both signs are mutable, and we need to have flexibility today. Willingness to change is important with the Moon in a sign that hungers for new experiences and also truth. Be honest or get called out on it! Jupiter in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn suggesting we figure out what things from the past hold us back. Make progress today. Tonight also, there's a strong need to go with the flow, deal with things as they come up, and if you're a Sagittarius or Pisces especially, you have last minute plans to make or interesting conversations to be had. Wear yellow.
The Capricorn Moon kicks in mid afternoon at 2:32 pm. The morning may be happy go lucky or unmotivated, but the rest of the weekend is meant for problem solving, arranging, planning, and getting work done. Be productive and get organized! Wear black.
The Moon is in Capricorn, the sign of the goat. With a Capricorn Moon, we feel best when accomplishing things. Make repairs, do hands on work, or even get a start on spring cleaning. The Moon and Pluto meet which tends to bring up things we need to face but would rather not. Deal with situations constructively and without too much drama or emotion. The Moon and Jupiter form a square bringing up questions of who is most capable and should be in charge. Catch up on work, start or finish projects and repairs. Wear brown.
