The 4th quarter Moon arrives at 9:39 am EST. This is often a time of rethinking and going over recent details, plans or events. With the Gemini Moon this morning we could overthink or put too much focus on whether we've made the right choices. The Moon square to the Sun creates some nervous energy.

The Moon opposite Pluto isn't always pleasant and a square to Venus in Libra makes for relationship disagreements. Dealing with things we wish we could avoid appears inevitable especially in the early hours. The Moon aligning with Jupiter helps boost moods some and makes outlooks brighter, especially if you feel like you're getting something accomplished. The key to the day is to not get pulled down by influences you can't control and focus on making improvements despite other circumstances. Pluto sometime throws the deep, dark or buried out into the open. Try not to let a skeleton from your closet or someone else's freak you out. Leave the past in the past. Tonight may be hard work especially if family or relationship issues are involved. Try not to sidestep but to deal fairly and realistically. Wear black.
