Love and lust are at odds this morning as the Cancer moon forms a harsh opposition to sweet Venus while favoring passionate Mars with a positive trine formation. It’s okay to let your primal side take the lead for a bit, but you’ll want to be mindful that you’re not disregarding anyone’s feelings in the process. Your intuition will guide you toward the things you want right now, and some meditating when when you wake up can bring a lot of clarity to your goals.
The sun and south node align throughout the day, acting as a magnifying glass on mistakes or trauma from the past. The good news is that this energy can be extremely healing and illuminating but only if you’re willing to accept and change behavioral patterns that are no longer serving you.
A dreamy vibe falls upon the collective this afternoon as the moon and Neptune share a supportive current with one another. If you encountered any conflict or hurt feelings earlier in the day, these vibes can help you smooth over any bumps in your relationships. This energy is also great for drawing in peace and connecting spiritually with the universe.
As the day comes to a close, Luna shares an unbalanced connection to Jupiter, which can elevate your empathic abilities to levels you’re uncomfortable with. If you begin to feel overwhelmed by the emotions of those around you, take a few minutes to ground yourself and reconnect with your center.
Our feelings of vulnerability and intense sensitivities seem especially difficult to manage today. Some may feel more confident and comfortable than others but there is a general feeling that we’re better off holding our cards close to the vest. The Moon’s trine to Neptune may at least offer extra compassion that keeps us from pushing too hard for clear or firm definitions. Emotional arguments or conflicts are unlikely to bring about any clear resolutions, while sympathy and compassion will allow room to clear away the confusion and vulnerability. There are likely to be plenty of interesting insights to carefully and purposefully unveil. Nonetheless, we should not demand too much from those who aren’t quite ready to show their hand.

Frog Spirit knows that while all the other frogs are croaking away, this is a time for you to simplify and declutter your life so you can feel content on your own lily pad. Even when life isn’t creating a total cacophony, we can become drawn to the excitement of lots of noise. Then, the next thing we know, our schedules and homes are cluttered with commitments we regret making and objects taking up valuable space. Even relationships need decluttering, as they often become messy.
Frog Spirit appears to tell you to clean house—prioritize what you need, and get rid of or give away the rest, so you can have some space in your day and in your head. You don’t need the old stuff and its stories shouting at you about the past. Along with physical clutter, friendships are sometimes kept long past their expiration date, weighing you down with unnecessary baggage. Now is the time to let go.
Whatever you need will appear when you need it, so release your grip on all that clutter that is making you feel anxious and burdened. Frog Spirit wants you to reclaim your space unencumbered by shoulds, oughts, and could-have-beens. Let go and jump—you are free from all that old stuff!
