Today’s energy is all about the Moon’s move from powerful, spontaneous Aries into earthy, patient Taurus, and how it affects your feelings and actions. It wouldn’t be abnormal to wake up feeling a little sluggish and confused, thinking things like “what just happened?” and “did I really do that or was it a dream?” Life can move at a pretty fast pace with the moon in Aries, and waking up with some questions and/or regrets isn’t unusual.
The good news is that with the moon transitioning into more practical, rational Taurus today, you’ve got time to sort it all out. Take your time getting ready for the day by making yourself a healthy breakfast, savoring your favorite coffee drink and making some solid plans for the day. Just knowing you’re going to start making some more responsible moves helps you feel better about your day and the accompanying lunar transfer of power.
