The Moon left chatty Gemini for sensitive Cancer during the night and the first aspect the Cancer Moon makes is a square to Venus in Aries before dawn. This may cause some to wake up feeling out of sorts and overly sensitive. The second jolt comes midday when Mars in Aries squares the Cancer Moon. While the Venus-Moon square might not be too harsh, Mars in Aries is another story. He is not noted for his tact but rather for acting first and thinking later. Thankfully by the time evening rolls around, Neptune in Pisces arrives to sooth the Cancer Moon’s nerves. If you enjoy a nice glass of wine at the end of the work day, that would do the trick. 🙂 Now is a good time to practice awareness of other people’s feelings and respecting them. Both today and tomorrow are better for working alone than with others, so plan accordingly. 🌠☽♋🌠
Mercury FINALLY leaves Capricorn during the night and shifts into cool, rational Aquarius. Unlike Mercury in Capricorn, Mercury in Aquarius is detached and analytical but not particularly interested in the practical details. While cardinal signs dominate the sky, having both the Sun and Mercury in fixed Aquarius does help slow the headlong pace and allow for more time for deliberation. Now that Jupiter in Libra is retrograde promoting the need to review and revise until June 9, put the time Mercury is in Aquarius to good use. It will leave Aquarius for Pisces on February 25.
