In the early afternoon, Mercury in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn, suggesting the exchange or exposure of secrets. In particular, family records may be investigated for deeper understanding, and we should be mindful of revisionist history that risks oversimplifying matters that are nuanced and complex.
In the early morning, the moon aligns with Venus in Leo. A feeling of communion is established with those around us through positive attitudes and generosity. This transit favors socializing with friends and can have a fortuitous effect on budding romantic relationships. Partnerships already in progress can also tap the benefits of this aspect through offering symbolic gestures of gratitude in the form of compliments and gift-giving. If we’ve been feeling low or lacking in confidence, we will get feedback today that affirms that others appreciate us. This realization, in turn, makes us want to spread the love around!
In the morning, the moon enters Cancer, exiting the void period that began last night. Mood swings and heightened sensitivities are a hallmark of this transit, so we should go easy on ourselves if we fluctuate from one emotional extreme to another over seemingly small or inconsequential matters. Emotions organically ebb and flow. Permitting ourselves to experience highs and lows without self-censure is half the battle now. Tomorrow, we will have a Cancer new moon to be used for recalibration. In the meantime, feel your feelings and seek stability in the comfort of your private space, or the support of your (chosen) family.
