Power struggles and jealousy are the unfortunate themes of the day as the moon opposes the depths of dark, murky Pluto before heading void-of-course later in the day. Other intense feelings could enter the picture as well, but whatever you’re feeling will be strong and undeniably deep. There is seldom any gray area during this powerful lunar aspect.
Emotional connections are tested now. People you can usually rely on might let you down, perhaps not intentionally, but everything feels a bit personal under this suspicious, self-doubting energy. Also watch out for anyone trying to play on your emotions or play up their own drama to get a reaction out of you. It’s easy to get sucked into other people’s pity parties now and let yourself get manipulated by a good sob story. Your judgment is fairly poor too, so making irrational decisions is likely. If you can’t control your irrationality regarding a certain situation, this isn’t a good time to get involved.

42 | Otter Spirit | You are never alone.
Have you been channeling all your affection to just one person, or counting on only one friend or individual to hold you up, heedless of your resources all around you? You deserve support and love from many people, and when Otter Spirit arrives, you are reminded that you have a community.
Somewhere is another friend who wants to experience the joy of giving to you and seeing your happiness as you receive their gift of attention, affection, and kindness. Otter Spirit wants you to open your eyes to see the love that is available to you from all directions. Do you believe it? Do you feel it?
Reach out to someone, and you will see that they want to hold your hand as much as you want to hold theirs. Love, support, and friendship are available to you, so connect with community and friends.
