The Virgo moon can make us more cynical and critical of those around us as well as cause us to give unfiltered responses to anyone who opposes our views. This is a time of assessment and understanding.
However, we could get lost in ambiguity early in the day. Our thoughts might not be clear, causing extra miscommunication and misinformation. This can make us all a bit paranoid and frustrated, and you might feel like a fish out of water, not in control of your own life.
The good news is that the moon enters airy Libra this afternoon, allowing us to communicate and discuss any mishaps that occurred earlier in the day. This is a time of making up and apologizing in order to maintain the equilibrium in our relationships. Partnerships that felt off-balance a few hours before can be back on track in no time. The Libra energy can transform the vibe in a positive way by clearing up the anxiety and confusion while also giving us a fresh look at the perplexing events of the day.
The Moon trines Pluto and squares Mars before going void-of-course at 11:43 AM PST, suggesting a rather chaotic or upsetting morning. The Moon arrives in Libra at 2:02 PM PST and soothes the environment with trines to the Sun and Mercury, allowing for intellectual processing of the unsettled atmosphere — talking things out. Nonetheless, we are still likely to be rather restless, uncertain, and nervous. The afternoon allows for some inward soul searching that helps us find some strength to process our fears and insecurities. Mercury reaches the inferior conjunction with the Sun just after midnight tonight and we find ourselves more capable of turning the corner, prepared to cut loose whatever is holding us back and keeping us from moving forward.

2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
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.
When Badger Spirit comes to protect you, he reminds you that anger or aggression, argumentative behavior, and being pushy or manipulative will not result in a positive outcome. Perhaps someone close to you has excess Badger energy, or perhaps that energy is pent-up in you. Either way, now is the time to calm down and allow the energy to pass through you. Go for a hike or brisk walk, shake it off, or dance it out so you can return to the situation determined and committed, but not so intense that you overwhelm others and yourself.
The appearance of Badger Spirit also serves as a reminder if you have been relentlessly pursuing something that keeps eluding you. The message is that it’s time to surrender it up to your Higher Power and focus on something else. Badger Spirit wants to protect you from self-will run rampant—from being obsessed with getting what you want in the form you prefer, in timing that fits perfectly with your notions of what has to be.
Remember, the world doesn’t revolve around your wants. Better, more beautiful opportunities will be the result when you release some of that Badger Spirit intensity along with your need to have it your way one hundred percent.
