Today, Mercury in Sagittarius squares off with Neptune in Pisces. Together, these energies can cause confusion, as we’re unsure of what we need to lean into and work on. Although we want to move toward a more factual place, it could be hard because we don’t want to let go of our spiritual views.
Finding balance won’t be easy, but it’s important for our future. Your head might be in the clouds, and you might have been struggling to keep grounded lately, and this feeling is exacerbated by the square. Try to meditate to keep yourself focused on the present and avoid worrying about things that haven’t occurred yet. This can help make you more level-headed right now.
Mars in Scorpio squares off with Jupiter in Aquarius tonight. Finding one’s place is extremely hard, even for those with an adventurous and wise spirit (which is activated through the Mars-Jupiter aspect). Use the Aquarius lunar energy to allow yourself to connect with your ancestry. It will be very healing. The Aquarius moon allows you to find the place and space where you fully belong and align with your familial bonds (as well as the universe), which will prove emotionally supportive.
The Moon arrives in Aquarius early this morning and may produce some rather erratic behavior. As passions continue to rise, impatience threatens to derail our ability to stay within some kind of structure or guidelines. Ambition may feed impulsiveness and a tendency to over-extend ourselves based upon overly optimistic intuitive flashes. This environment does not clearly support the necessary self-discipline we need in order to find ways to reign in our impulses at least enough to verify our opinions with a clear assessment of the details. We may also find ourselves in a position where we need to respond quickly to the impulsiveness of others.

Not all that Spirit creates in nature is easy to love, but when we look through the eyes of Wasp Spirit, we recognize that even though, sometimes, life stings, there is a purpose for pain just as there is a purpose for wasps in the natural world.
Wasps keep insect populations down, supporting the growth of plants. So, too, the sting of life may hurt and you may feel deeply disappointed or even resentful that Wasp Spirit has shown up, but you will soon come to see that Spirit has something wonderful in store for you.
You may well come to realize that being stung led to something far better than you had envisioned for yourself. Perhaps, behind the scenes, Wasp Spirit was conspiring with Spirit to ensure that you could grow something of value to you. Spirit has a plan, and Wasp Spirit plays a part.
Have you ever looked back and been glad your prayers weren’t answered because the path you took led to something far better? Wasp Spirit is a reminder to reflect on those times, for today’s sting may hurt, but something better awaits you.
