“Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

We seem to find a bit of optimism — perhaps even some luck — today. The search for safety is boosted by Mercury’s square to Chiron, helping us to take a second look at the importance of our personal self-esteem. Although there may be endless complications to be faced, we gain a measure of hard-won self-assurance. Some of our newfound sense of stability may be due to Saturn’s return to Capricorn. However, with Saturn moving back into Capricorn, the screws will tighten when we are forced to do more clean up of outworn structures before we can actually move forward and build new structures (next year) that are better suited to the building of a New World — a process that is currently underway.

In the wee hours, the sun in Cancer sextiles Uranus in Taurus, creating an urge to try something you’ve never done before around the house, likely something in the kitchen! The moon aspects Pluto, Jupiter, and Saturn as well throughout the day, taking us all on an emotional journey that starts off a bit zany but eventually moves us into a sense of feeling completely centered.

With Mercury in Cancer, you will be attracted to silence and doing what it takes to achieve emotional stability. You may find that to be a challenge when Mercury squares Chiron, creating a sort of double-take. When this happens, you could second-guess yourself, but rest assured that your instinct to find peace and quiet is the right path.

This evening, retrograde Saturn enters Capricorn, but it doesn’t have an enormous effect on the day’s energy. This evening, retrograde Saturn enters Capricorn, but it doesn’t have an enormous effect on the day’s energy. Carve out a little time to honor one of your many talents in light of the mighty Jupiter-Pluto that is still lingering, doing whatever night-welcoming ritual that brings you the most joy.

The sense of balance is only strengthened by the moon moving through Sagittarius. There will be an undeniable ease throughout the day as the equilibrium between confidence and kindness leaves us all feeling pretty grounded overall.
