In the small hours, the Moon sextiles Jupiter. Our dreams will be active, expansive. Make sure you take note of that realm you depart from when you wake, my friends. There is fertility in the realm of sleep. Our senses of optimism take on an expansive bent, as Jupiter supports and excites the emotional Moon. Perhaps, for now, more seems possible than you thought before.
Soonafter the Moon squares Pluto, which seeks to curb that expansion. Power struggle, especially with family members or those close to us, are possible at this time. Mind your boundaries, and remember that this is a passing influence. This is a call to retrain your awareness to the truth of matters, regardless of how dark it seems. Honesty is important in this moment, so carry it close.
The Moon trines Mars this afternoon, energizing us and letting us feel brave, connected, and activated. Mercury trines Saturn as well, encouraging us to speak about our plans to self-mastery, to put language to our greatest dreams, and to then do the actual work of chasing them down. An easy flow of energy between mind and long-term goal is available today. Make sure you are doing the work you are most called to do.
In the evening the Moon opposes Venus and Uranus, which are still gently conjunct in Taurus. Here there is a chance that we’ll be needy, moody, or prone to flashes of sass, of sharpness. Keep a handle on that heart of yours today, OK? It’s a wild thing, indeed, but it doesn’t need to escape your chest. What you’re looking for will come not from applied pressure, but from aligned and focused work.
The Moon enters Scorpio today, making the next two days ones of great emotional intensity. Take advantage of this energy by connecting to a truthful and honest emotional sense of self. Scorpio destroys fictions of the self. Let all that is superficial fall away. Today, your heart is a green phoenix.
