The Aquarius moon is very active today. The moon, known as the natural giver and receiver of information, aspects the Gemini sun, centaur Chiron in Aries, Uranus in Taurus, Saturn in Aquarius, and the nodes of destiny on the Gemini-Sagittarius lunar axis. This means that we are breaking down the emotional structures (moon, Saturn, and Uranus) that are holding us back.
This can also assure that we will have conversations or gain clarity from our families, because the moon, the maternal archetype, is aspecting Saturn, the paternal planet. There could be a brooding sentimentality that is slightly depressive. But Uranus adds some excitement to the mix, which could awaken our passions.
The good news is that Chiron can mend our hearts and emotions in a very emotional way and open us up to starting the dialogue necessary for healing. Overall, the emotive events of the day have a fated feel due to the lunar nodes of destiny affecting the way we feel about situations.
Mercury in Gemini shares a minor frustration with Pluto in Capricorn, which could cause arguments and irritations that lead to verbal confrontations. There can be a healing element here, though, if you’re willing to suppress the drama. Also, know that you don’t always have to have the last word in a heated conversation. This can allow you to avoid the fraught energy and keep passionate temperaments at bay.
Today’s intellectually inspiring atmosphere may seem especially unfamiliar to most of us. It is as though an entirely new landscape has been revealed. The Pallas-Neptune conjunction certainly helps us to use our intuition to clarify the picture but clarity only increases the sense that we are suddenly in a different place. The overall effect is likely to produce a sense of wonder and excitement. Temptations abound. Personal relationships reach new levels of intensity. Where we go from here will depend on what we choose to explore. Purely material gain may seem especially tantalizing but, without some insight into the intangible layers of our existence — transcendent reality — material gain will only lead to dead ends.

There’s no getting away from the severity and harshness of the 10 of Swords, and there’s no denying it’s effect. The Medieval Scapini Tarot talks of treachery. That may be true for some of you – not everyone has your back. The difference with this version of the card is the swords being in full view of the characters – there’s no back stabbing here suggesting you know who and what has the ability to cause you pain and damage.
That knowledge gives you power, so it’s best to be prepared. Begin your day by checking over loose ends in contracts, making sure you’ve paid your bills – anything you have control over, make sure you take care of it. Keep your eyes wide open and be on your guard.
If you have an ongoing issue with a rival or colleague, do your best to take the moral high ground and don’t engage in or aggravate arguments. Gossip is a particularly nasty pastime with negative results and connotations. You reap what you sow. Make sure today, you have no reason to receive retribution.
