Is danger lurking around the corner as a hot new month begins? If today’s shadowy Mars-Pluto square has anything to say about it, that’s a big, fat cosmic yes! With intense Mars traveling alongside reckless Aries, one of the signs it rules, it gains “what not to do” steam as it bulldozes its way through the Universe.
As intense Mars squares off with mysterious, death-obsessed Pluto in serious earth sign Capricorn, it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of tension in the air. It’s hard to tell what anyone around you might do next, and you aren’t even all that sure about your own intentions or motivations and why they lead you to act in a certain completely uncharacteristic way.
Power struggles prevail at work and at home, and your frustrations could even result in actual physical altercations today. Even the calmest of signs can be driven over the edge as you find yourself in places you never dreamed you’d be when you woke up this morning.

5 | BAT SPIRIT | Rebirth is assured.
After something has run its course and died or been released, finished, surrendered, completed, or ended, there is a promise of a new beginning. Rebirth is assured just as night gives way to dawn and the bat emerges from the darkness of a womblike cave.
Bat Spirit has come to remind you that this rebirth is a miraculous one, for the very best elements of what you had to give up in the death of the old are still present in this new, amazing life forming now. This is the miracle and magic of rebirth in every aspect of your life, including the rebirth of faith in your ability to establish new and healthy relationships.
Bat Spirit reminds you that at present, you are in unknown territory and may feel as if you are lost. However, you are called to trust that your intuition will be a reliable guide as you give birth to something new and unfamiliar.
Bat Spirit has listened in the darkness of night and has heard all your hopes and dreams, your fears and worries, and assures you that this new version of your dream—this move from darkness into light, from lost to found and death to rebirth—comes to fruition with Love at its core. Bat Spirit asks you to trust that what seems to have died is actually shape-shifting into something even more meaningful and wondrous than before.
If you feel you are in the dark, know that come morning, all will be revealed, and things will be in a new form that is right for you.
