The Capricorn moon has a rocky journey this morning, forming squares with Jupiter and Mercury. People are likely to be more self-absorbed than usual, and it might be difficult to find comfort when needed. The moon can bring deep thoughts to the forefront of the mind. Unfortunately, you aren’t immune to this, and you might find your mind swimming in some gloomy waters.
Jupiter only increases this. When Jupiter enters the mix, you could feel anxiety around your responsibilities and your ability to accomplish your goals. If you let it, self-doubt could get the better of you.
The vibe is heavy, and we might find that the people we encounter are in bad moods as well. It will help to remember that we’re all attempting to navigate this energy, so try to lead by example and be kind to others. Mercury can offer some relief if we can find a way to lean into our optimism, especially when it comes to dreams and fantasies.
As nightfall nears, the moon calms down, giving us plenty of energy to work toward our dreams. However, a square with Chiron could make it difficult for you to find balance, and you might have trouble falling asleep. Don’t be afraid to give yourself a break.
The tempo slows down to a manageable pace tonight. Of course, we may not be anywhere near where we had hoped to be in terms of our progress or overall sense of stability. Nonetheless, there is a general sense that there is something to hold on to — or safely lean on. It is especially important to embrace whatever sense of balance that we can find today. With Venus now in Virgo, our idealism has found some brakes — some recognition of the value of practicality and realistic expectations. This will be especially helpful when we reach Saturday’s Pisces Full Moon (2:58 AM PDT 17° Pisces/Virgo). We will clearly see how too much dependence on any single source of support is not wise.

21 | Dove Spirit | Be peace.
However disturbed the waters around you, however troubled your heart, Dove Spirit is there to remind you that peace without begins within as you reconnect with Spirit through practices that awaken you from spiritual amnesia. Your true nature is as a peaceful child of Spirit, but how easily you forget! You’re being invited to sit in the cozy safe nest of Spirit.
Soon, the waters will become still and you will feel peace again. Be compassionate with yourself at this time, for all of us can forget that peace is always at hand, always there, gifted to us by Spirit. Become the peace you wish to see in the world so you can reduce any suffering, performing acts of kindness and radiating love.
Dove Spirit also reminds you that when you see inequity or someone harmed or in need, trust that you have the capacity to bring peace through smiling, sending love, speaking a kind word, and listening with a compassionate heart.
Do your part to be a peacemaker, nourishing compassion, reminding others of the joy of harmonious co-existence so that they may embrace the Dove Spirit within themselves too.
