If you’re feeling a little irritable, you’re not alone. Today is kind of tricky. We kicked it off with the Moon conjunct Mars in Cancer which might have seen some of us working through impatience and needing to let off a little steam.
Later on, the Moon-Saturn opposition will trigger us early/late evening (depending where you live) leaving some of feeling especially sensitive and maybe in need of a good, ugly cry. With the Moon in Cancer and Saturn in Capricorn, we may be trying to balance our nurturing with our responsibility, our self care with our duties, expressing our feelings versus standing stoically tall. Moon-Saturn is great for emotional maturity… but sometimes, it can feel isolating, lonely, and defensive.
Mind you, Venus is treading over the confrontational fixed star Algol at 26º Taurus today and tomorrow bringing us some challenges in relating. If you think you might lose your head, it’s quite possible that others are struggling too. Perhaps the best way to consciously move forward is to pretend there’s a skunk outside and it has left a major stinkbomb. Just like that smell, this unpleasantness will also pass. In the meantime, keep your shit together.
I find it interesting that both Black Mirror and The Handmaid’s Tale start their new seasons tonight! Both shows have this energy baked into them.
