The Moon conjuncts Saturn about sunrise (PDT) this morning and then goes void-of-course for most of the rest of the day. Confusion abounds, especially with the station of Mercury Retrograde. In essence, today offers us a turnaround place, where we need to slow way down as we begin to shift our focus towards the future. Ideas may swirl in a noisy cloud of vague impressions but there is little to clearly delineate the thoughts and inspiration from random musings.
As the moon continues its journey through the sky, it makes a sweet connection to Mercury and Mars, giving us the opportunity to feel ourselves a bit. You’ll be in the mood to express yourself and show your creative side.
Be sure to add some flair to your appearance as the sun aligns with the North Node of Destiny. The energy here is big, and it can help fill our hearts with optimism and joy. This aspect is also very lucky and will lend a hand to your personal goals and bring focus to your aspirations. Just be sure to remain grounded, so you can be practical about anything you wish to accomplish at the moment.
Today’s auspicious energy also makes it a great time to light a candle and communicate your deepest desires to the Universe, so make your intentions known to the other side! The vibe remains mostly hopeful through the rest of the day, and a soft aspect between the moon and Jupiter promises to bring us sweet dreams as well. Be sure to close your day with a meditation to connect with your heart and gratitude.
Once the Moon goes into Pisces this evening at 9:42 PM PDT, intuition begins to stabilize dramatically and we can return our focus to setting intentions that help us to bring tangible form to our vision and aspirations.

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.
