The moon enters Taurus, then triggers the intense Saturn and Uranus square that has been one of the core astrological aspects of 2021 (it occurred on February 17 and June 14, and the third transit will be on December 24). This could cause a lot of tension and frustration throughout the day. Emotions will be erratic because of the moon-Uranus connection.
The Taurus Moon provides enough self-control to help us make the most of this somewhat unsteady atmosphere. It is especially important to avoid becoming too stirred up, pushy, or self-righteous today. The Moon’s square to Saturn will likely help us to keep our opinions in check — or at least muted. Energy is easily dissipated, especially if we’re straining at gnats to achieve some kind of perfection. If we can stay off the soap box and work through collaborative effort, we will find a reasonably smooth and profitable environment in which to make progress.
There could also be a changeable and desirable nature, making us want to invest our time and energy outside our comfort zone. Embracing your true and unique self will allow you to feel free.
The caveat is that Saturn sets off the moon and Uranus by adding emotional setbacks and challenges to the mix. This can lead to indecision and roadblocks on our journey. You could feel as though you’re trying to break down the walls and constraints that are holding you back, but you’re unable to because you don’t want to do the work or aren’t being given the right tools to do so.
Watch out for protests or outbursts that are meant to change society as a whole but are instead met with resistance. There is a need to evolve. The struggle to change with the times yet hold on to the past is real, which is why you might feel stuck.
