The moon shifts from Virgo to Libra today, which means that we could be consumed by a desire to do right by others at all costs. This can show up when we take the high road instead of succumbing to a lower vibration. Be fair-minded and defend the underdog instead of ignoring the needs of those who lack your advantages.
Another element of the day is that you might decide to be impartial when asked to pick sides between disagreeing friends. The reason is that you can see both sides of the situation, and you’re unwilling to show preference to one or the other. This won’t be easy because your friends will want to drag you into their drama.
Disconnecting from email, social media, and your phone allows you to remove yourself from the situation and focus on your own needs. Instead of giving in to their drama, you can resolve to reflect on matters in your own life. In the evening, you’ll be ready to talk to your friends about their situation and how it affects you. Until then, assert your boundaries to make sure that you get your work done.
Although there are few readily apparent guidelines to follow today, there are plenty of tantalizing, intuitive clues that a new foundation is coming, encouraging us to interact with others with amiable joviality. The Libra Moon encourages us to stay balanced and listen to everyone who wants to share their perspective. In some sense or another, we may see that there is some new scaffolding in place today the serves to keep us from flailing about or acting impulsively. We may be feeling deep inadequacy but we are generally capable of maintaining at least a superficial show of confidence.
