Today’s moon in Libra urges us to seek balance in our relationships. A need to compromise could also leave you feeling resentful thanks to the energy of Pluto squaring the moon. That’s why it’s important to try to release those emotions by channeling them into something positive.
Luckily, you shouldn’t have to try too hard to get along with others while keeping your ego under control given the moon will be aspecting Mercury and Venus at the same time, balancing out your ability to get along with others despite any minor annoyances.
There is a relaxing vibe that comes with this as well, so if you’re tempted to cuddle a little longer in the morning, go for it. Just be aware that things could shift at any moment.
Time alone might be needed in the late morning. This will assist in our desire to treat people fairly or at the very least impartially as well as help tamp down the ego from the early morning influences. By late afternoon, the energy of the day shifts almost 180 degrees, and we should be feeling much more patient and grounded.
We may lose a bit of the shine on yesterday’s amiability today. Sharp edges begin to show through as impatience or false bravado. Nonetheless, there are threads to follow by paying attention to what others are telling us. Self-control and the willingness to listen politely is how we can make the most of what we find here. If we can recognize even the slightest hint of a new way forward from the messages that others are sending us, we will begin to grasp the significance and importance of the challenges that we have faced over the past year. In essence, this is a day to listen, despite the frustration.

There is a time to act and a time to focus your attention on patient strategizing.

Come to know the lay of the land as you contemplate and imagine what you might do in this vast space of possibility before you, and begin forming a plan.

Insights will arise as you explore the possibilities and begin envisioning your plan. Knowing what you want will ensure you use your energy wisely in the days ahead. Be patient at this time. Relax and be calm and peaceful so you can recharge. The call for action will come later.
