The moon is in Cancer, which can bring up many emotions depending on the aspects it makes. Because the moon aspects Uranus today, we might feel as though we’re being pushed to evolve in ways we never thought possible. Before you take a leap toward change, consider letting go of outdated views and keeping your fundamental personal values intact. This will help you transform in all the right ways.

The aspect with Uranus can also make us want to do the right thing. Taking the high road can be hard, especially when you feel you must have the last word in all matters. Instead of arguing about who’s right or wrong, take a step back and stop the drama. Resolving matters with those you care about is more important than making a point.

Tonight’s moon-Neptune trine can bring up a lot of tender sentiments. Neptune is known to be a healer but also a little delusional. Mending bridges with those you care deeply about could consume your heart during this time. If you’ve recently butted heads with someone, you can make amends with the right amount of effort. Before you know it, you’ll be back in each other’s good graces. If they haven’t shown you that they’ve made any effort to grow, then it’s time to move on even if you want to maintain the relationship.

Patience is easier to find today, under Mercury’s trine to Uranus. We are more inclined to keep quiet with what we believe we know. Timing is everything here and it’s easier to say the right thing at the right time by using intuition as our guide. This is not to say that there is not a great deal of self-righteousness roiling just beneath the surface, only that there is more capacity to control our tongue and temper. Nonetheless, pressure is building significantly as we begin to look for new ways to deliver our message to others in ways that can be understood. Self-control is crucial. Past experience and established channels don’t seem to offer much help.

DEC 27: LAST QUARTER MOON IN LIBRA: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things “nice” rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.

JAN 2: NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN: You might have a strong need for being useful to the society and you look for justification in the outside world. You may underestimate what you want from yourself and for yourself. Shyness may be accompanied by resentment of the fact that others ignore you. Do not seek approval from the outside, it will not help you get rid of your doubt and it is harmful to you. You have to trust your inner values.

JAN 9: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN ARIES: The feeling of uncertainty can make you solve problems faster then is natural. Do not rush as if there was a deadline. Try to slow down so that you can decide what you want to do and proceed at your own comfortable pace.

JAN 17: FULL MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.

JAN 25: LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
