Activity is stirred by today’s 1st Quarter Moon, the Mars-Saturn trine, and Mercury’s sextile to Uranus. As well, Venus arrives in brash and aggressive Aries — not a particularly comfortable place for Venus. Our minds are sharpened and our speech is quickened but we may still find ourselves looking towards some kind of authority for guidance. Mars also squares Vesta today, suggesting a self-righteous attitude surrounding personal sacrifices. The Aries Sun is stirring up a desire to move quickly, perhaps in a race to be first. We may find ourselves a bit more confident than we should be but if we are able to build the right kind of cooperative alliances with the right authorities, today’s progress may very well be quite remarkable.
When the moon squares Venus this morning, we’re likely to crave affection and intimacy. If you have a partner, you have to be cautious that you don’t get too wrapped up in what only you want. If you’re solo, there may be a feeling of loneliness at this time.
Lucky for you, the moon moves into peaceful Cancer about the same time, so that should keep you meeting others with ease and focusing on what you need to feel good. The moon makes this a great time to find neutral territory with others as well, so don’t be too pushy or you could miss out on a new experience.
Later in the morning, Venus moves into bold Aries and we find ourselves really going for what we desire in a whole new way. There are no apologies and few reservations about telling it like it is!
This evening, Mercury sextiles Uranus, bringing stimulating conversation and some unexpected detours. Trying new things is something of a theme for the day and highly encouraged at this time.
Finally, tonight’s Mars-Saturn trine provides perseverance for anything that requires endurance and ambition for any goal that you’re chasing. This transit also bodes well for work matters and family relations.

Essential meanings: A sense of loss; an identity crisis; recognizing that you don’t fit in; the need to belong; uncertainty about your place.
The Oracle’s Message: We were all meant to have connections with other people—within our families, society, and the larger culture. No man is an island, and it’s important to recognize when being “a part of” rather than “separate from” is essential to your well-being. The issue at hand is the need to find where you fit. Be true to your core truths and values. Perhaps you no longer identify with a group or community the way you did before and need to find a new situation. You might be feeling a deep sense of loss or confusion. Address the need for belonging, and know that you will find your place with others of like mind and spirit. It’s okay to let go of pressure to belong with those with whom you don’t fit in. Not everyone will understand you. It’s time to move on.
Relationship message: As you shift and evolve and commit to your own growth, you long for support but may be disappointed and hurt by others who are not providing what you feel you deserve. Perhaps you are drifting away from this relationship because you’re in a different stage of personal growth. Perhaps you are in a new relationship and discovering that you don’t share the same values and beliefs, so you feel left out, unable to get to that intimate place of safety and belonging. Take heart, as Spirit knows you and loves you and will steer you in the direction of those who accept you as you are without artifice or agenda. Don’t compromise yourself to belong. It won’t be worth the price.
Prosperity message: This card reminds you that you can’t be all things to all people. You are not going to be popular with everyone, and that has to be okay with you. Be clear about your mission, your brand, your work persona, and your contribution to the world, as these must be based on what you authentically have to offer, not something you think will sell or perceive “they” may want. You will attract abundance by being completely yourself. Stay in your own lane. That’s where you will shine and where you’ll experience prosperity.
