Today is loaded with a ton of cosmic energy. The first aspect is a fraught connection between Venus in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius. This fixed square can make us feel insecure financially and poor emotionally—unseen and exhausted. Since this connection occurs in the morning, it could put you in a bad mood before you even wake up! Dealing with this energy could be challenging because Saturn limits the positive vibes that Venus tries to bring us. A good way to deal with this celestial aspect is to focus on your own needs. This can help you stand in your own power and not compare yourself to others.
The next cosmic square of the day occurs between Mercury in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius. This could make us feel at a loss for words as we rebel against the norms and conventions of society, or feel that we lack the motivation to even join the cause. Mercury in Taurus is stubborn in its thinking, while Saturn in Aquarius wants to protest against the status quo. When these planets in these signs clash, it can lead to disputes and arguments. None of these planets or signs like being told what to do. Unfortunately, it could lead to you feeling as though the world is against you.
Later in the day, Mercury and Venus align in Taurus, shifting the energy after some major but momentary frustration. By the end of the day, you’ll feel free of the chains that have been holding you back. You’re now able to live the good life and be seen and appreciated by others and especially yourself.
Our awareness of a pressure change may stir some early morning discomfort that we would prefer to simply ignore. It may be that our response to discomfort — or lack of response — is simply a reflection of the more steady approach that we are adopting. We’re inclined to keep calm and carry on today, rather than directly deal with any emotional weaknesses or intellectual challenges. In truth, most of the perceived challenges really will just sort themselves out without any direct individual engagement. Our transition to a steady, plodding approach is nearly complete, to be fully cemented by tomorrow evening’s Scorpio Full Moon (8:31 PM PDT 7° Scorpio/Taurus).
