The Moon in Sagittarius provides a little boost of self-esteem to Venus in Aries today at 10:20am EST. Venus is in detriment in Aries and is therefore prone to act contrary to her nature. She feels the need to defend herself in inhospitable Aries, something she’s not necessarily comfortable doing. Trine the Moon in Sagittarius, Venus is provided with some extra wisdom and insight in dealing with arguments, confrontations, and generally uncomfortable situations. If your feminine nature is challenged today, focus on the bigger picture and forget about the need to defend yourself—it may only fall on deaf ears.

A tight cradle is formed today between the Moon in Sagittarius with Jupiter retrograde in Libra, Uranus in Aries, and Mercury in Aquarius. This cradle provides boundless inspiration with Jupiter rx opposite Uranus, but requires a jumpstart in order to get in gear with aligning what we think with how we feel. While you might be safely tucked into your “cradle” in a lovely nursery, it’s the outside world that’s calling you today, which is noted by a plactic trine between the Sun in Pisces and Jupiter in Libra. You crave connection on a deeper level today and want to be seen performing good deeds. Saturn meeting up with the Moon today provides structure and insight into the steps you need to take in order to get one step closer to emotional fulfillment!

The Moon moves into Capricorn today at 2:08am EST, reminding us to make use of our emotional resources, or work on developing them if you feel like you don’t have any. Capricorn is one of the most utilitarian signs of the zodiac, and while it likes to play, it doesn’t do so until all of the to-do items on your list are checked off. In the interest of your emotional sanity, start tackling that list today. The Sun in Pisces, the sign of union and transcendence, gives the Moon a little boost and helps it fulfill its potential. You have the best of both worlds today with the Sun and Moon’s placement to impart a little bit of fun and whimsy into accomplishing your goals.

Mars in its home turf of Aries squares off with Pluto in Capricorn at 4:03am EST today for the first of only two meetings between the planets in 2017. If you’re familiar with tarot, consider this meetup similar to encountering the tower—shit is bound to go down. To add to this potentially hostile interaction, Pluto is conjunct the Moon in Capricorn, exposing our dark sides. A t-square between Mars in Aries, Jupiter rx in Libra, and Pluto conjunct the Moon in Capricorn suggest that the only way to harness the current energy is to totally flip it on its head, examine it for what it’s worth, then put what we’ve learned to use. If you experience upsets today, know they’re for your betterment, no matter how disruptive they may be.

The Moon enters Aquarius today at 12:17pm EST and will hold us accountable for any transformations or realizations we underwent with the Mars square Pluto/Moon transit from yesterday. Another tight cradle appears today, this time with Saturn in Sagittarius replacing the Moon. Again, we are reminded that mastering how we define our standards and how we communicate about what we know will lead us to the path of inspirational fulfillment. Are you seeing a theme this week?

Emotional nonattachment is probably the best way to get through today with the Moon in airy Aquarius sextile Venus in Aries at 10:41am EST. While the Moon and Venus support one another, they also require a bit of escape from the hot seat they’re both in, with Aries and Aquarius being warm, and even fiery, in nature. Daydreaming might be a great reprieve back into the cool comfort zone for both Venus and the Moon today. The sextile aspect gives permission for this to happen.

Mercury crosses into Pisces at 6:07pm EST tonight, inviting riveting abstract thought, provoking dialogue, and possible mixed messages. Shortly thereafter, the Moon follows into Pisces at 7:24pm EST, setting the stage for a solar eclipse to go down Sunday morning (more on this next week). These two planets converge in a creative but escapist sign, which can result in confusion between emotions and how they are expressed. Chances are, you either won’t be able to find the words you need to express yourself, or the exact opposite—you’ll express yourself so adeptly that even you with be impressed with yourself.
