We may face a situation that causes us some irritability as the Moon clashes with aggressive Mars this morning. Or, it's possible we'll get into a needless dispute that makes us want to get back in bed and try again tomorrow. However, when the Moon unites with philosophical Jupiter and introspective Pluto later in the day, we see the day's earlier events as opportunities for growth. The Sun then enters Scorpio at 7:00 pm EDT, igniting our powers of transformation and resilience.
Did someone take credit for your idea at work? Resist the urge to flip the table and put that person on blast and, instead, handle it with grace. First, assess what happened. Were they chiming in on an idea you made vocal and ended up taking over the conversation, or did they completely steal a concept that you shared in private? When you are clear about their wrongdoings, invite them to have a restorative conversation. If they have integrity, an apology and proper credit should follow.
You may have the urge to stay under the covers today as the Moon in your 9th House of Escapism connects with Mars in your 12th House of Solitude. If possible, plan to spend some time alone and deep in thought. This is a great day to journal, meditate, and daydream while listening to your favorite music. Later in the day, you may be hit with a creative impulse like cooking a new recipe or writing a short story. Do whatever makes you feel good!
Are the people around you green with envy? As the Moon in your vulnerable 8th house clashes with Mars in your friendship zone, you may become the talk of the town without doing anything but being yourself! Minding your own business and prioritizing self-care has you glowing and feeling great, so much so that your positive vibe can breed jealousy in those that wish they could have the same. Don’t get caught up in the gossip; instead, continue to be a role model for a drama-free life.
You are super motivated to give everything you've got at work today, but you also don’t want to neglect your closest connections. A healthy work-life balance is needed in any relationship. If a significant other or close friend has been complaining about your long work hours, try to complete your work earlier in the day so you can schedule some quality time together this evening. You'll earn extra points if you make reservations to spoil them at a posh restaurant!
Your day-to-day routine gets an extra boost today when the Moon connects with Mars, which is currently in your 9th House of Higher Learning. Have you been thinking about adding a new skill to your resume or creating a side hustle to make extra money? This is a great day to sign up for a new virtual course or purchase that book that was recommended to you by a friend. Spending a little time every day learning something new will give you a leg up in life.
You may be thinking a lot about your childhood dreams while the Moon in your 5th House of Play and Creativity squares off with retrograde Mars today. What fun activities did you like to do as a child that you abandoned as you approached adulthood? Perhaps you liked to draw, or maybe you enjoyed playing sports or spending time baking with a grandparent. Give yourself a blast from the past and choose one nostalgic project to complete this evening.
Home is where your heart is, and your heart is filled with the people in your life that bring you joy. However, you may not be seeing eye to eye with a loved one lately and it’s causing you a lot of stress. If you’ve done all you can to repair the relationship, space may be what is needed. Sometimes time heals all wounds, but if an opportunity for a restorative conversation comes up, don’t hesitate to give it a shot.
This can be a great time to discuss upcoming plans with a mentor or someone else whose opinion you respect, as the Moon in your 3rd House of Communication connects with Mars in your focused 6th house. It’s great to have a strong strategy and an idea of how you want to pursue your goals, but two heads are always better than one! If your process gets the thumbs up from your confidante, great! If not, tweak it a bit and proceed with confidence.
You may be tempted to use shopping as a form of entertainment while the emotional Moon in your money zone clashes with Mars in your 5th House of Fun. Sometimes it’s easier to go online shopping for mundane items rather than tapping into your creativity and producing something you can be proud of, but the latter is always much more satisfying. Instead of blindly spending your money today, buy something that will aid in showing off or supporting your artsy side.
You may find yourself in the middle of a conflict with a meaningful woman in your life today. While angry Mars tangles with the sensitive Moon in your sign, you could be triggered by issues from the past and take out your frustrations on a close female relationship. Though your feelings are valid, being negative will only drive a wedge between you. Instead, understand that this person is a flawed human, just like you, and give them the compassion and consideration you would want from them.
You're in a quiet mood today and may prefer to spend some time alone for self-care purposes, and to dive into your inner psyche. Though you probably don't feel much like chatting, people will keep reaching out to you to talk. You could choose to turn off your phone and connect with them tomorrow, but your social connections are important to you, so you may want to just answer and keep your conversations as short as possible. Either way, you are in control!
Your friendships are especially important to you with the Moon in your social 11th house, but it's square to Mars today could have you feeling bad that your budget doesn't allow for more fun times together. To reach your goals, it’s important to set strong financial boundaries and to follow through with your plans. Keep reminding yourself that this phase will not last forever. Soon you’ll be joining your friends for rooftop brunches and you may even be covering the bill!
