As usual, the Capricorn Moon shows up and puts an end to the Sagittarius Moon party. By the time we’re up and about, the Moon will be in calm, matter of fact Capricorn. She reminds us we really need to work on our “to do” lists instead of running off to play today. The midday opposition between the Capricorn Moon and Mars in Cancer suggests not everyone is going to be happy about this. Thankfully a trine between the Moon and easy going Venus in Taurus a short while later helps smooth over tensions. Overall the tone is much cooler and calmer today. 🌠☾♑🌠
The elemental balance is gradually shifting away from a preponderance of fire and air signs. We now have Venus in Taurus and Mars in Cancer joining Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn on the earth-water side of scales. On the days we have a Moon in earth or water the elements are nicely balanced. I see this as a plus because having all four elements well represented allows us to make better choices. Fire brings inspiration, air gives perspective, water encourages empathy and earth is grounding.
