The Taurus moon connects with Venus and Pluto, both in Capricorn, and then with Jupiter in Aquarius. These lunar connections could make us feel as though we’re riding an emotional roller coaster throughout the day.
However, the drama begins after sunset. Watch out for the witching hour, which can bring annoyances to the surface. The frustration could begin when the moon enters Gemini in the evening. The moon then opposes Mars while aligning with the north node, bringing the finale of the annoyances that occurred yesterday.
When Mars and the moon oppose each other, it can add explosive arguments that cause tension in close relationships. In this case, Mars in Sagittarius is ready to rumble and could be set off by something someone says.
The connection with the nodes of destiny catches us with our hand in the cosmic cookie jar. Therefore, it’s important to avoid saying regrettable things that will only come back to haunt you. This could be hard because there’s a strong urge to meddle and interfere in other people’s issues. There might be a chance we can sweet-talk our way out of a situation, but only if we acknowledge our part in it and admit to any wrongdoing.
The Moon is void-of-course this morning from 8:08 AM PST until 12:42 PM PST. Once in Gemini, the Moon’s opposition to Mars, increases the stakes ahead of Saturday’s Gemini Full Moon (8:35 PM PST 27° Gemini/Sagittarius). Our need to interact, share our ideas, and work with others may be tainted by an overwhelming need to control others and sway opinions. The challenge is most likely seen in a drive for perfection — very difficult to achieve when compromise is called for. The nervous tension of the Gemini Moon keeps our minds active. However, our ability to clearly communicate our thoughts — and stay engaged long enough to hear a response — is especially challenging.
