The Leo moon shares a fraught opposition with Jupiter in the last degrees of Aquarius. It’s an auspicious time when the moon and Jupiter oppose each other. Jovial energy is present throughout the day, as well as the need to assert your big heart in relationships. You might find that people’s feelings are over the top, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as long as they’re being sincere. Declarations of love could be grander and bigger because we all want to give our best to ensure that our relationships move smoothly and efficiently.

The only caveat is that the moon and Jupiter aspects can increase the energy of the day. Jupiter mostly adds a lucky, energetic vibe to feelings, but it can expand and make them deeper too. This isn’t necessarily a good thing, say, if you’re engaging in arguments with people. The energy can intensify annoyances and frustrations as well as joy.

Something else that will be present today is luck. For the first time in a while, you might feel it’s time to take a big gamble. You might want to invest in something you feel will bring you a lot of money or support down the road. As usual, it’s best to ask the opinion of a friend or adviser before signing any documents or risking a large amount of money.

Detachment is the key to effectively navigating today’s atmosphere. Our attention may shift a bit too much towards our performance — what others think of us — which may cause us to lose the thread of the story that we are trying to tell others. If we succumb to the temptation to worry about what others think of us, we won’t be able to lay the foundation for broader understanding. Ultimately, this environment may present us with opportunities to expand the use of our creativity to display our ideas more effectively. However, we very much need to keep our minds on what we are doing and how we want to lead others to understanding the things that we believe are most important.

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.


A sunny meadow calls, and Rabbit Spirit appears to lead you out of your dark warren and into the light so that you can participate in a fertile and beautiful experience. It may seem safe below ground, but the magic happens when you come out and take the risk of being vulnerable and co-creating something new. You are being invited into a new life that you have no experience with. But have no fear!

Today is also a time to be fruitful and productive as you enjoy Rabbit Spirit’s sunny and prolific energy. At this time, whatever you intend to bring to life will find fertile ground. There are no mistakes, really, when you are co-creating with Spirit, so let new ideas spring to the surface, knowing that now is a lucky time of tremendous possibility.
