Sun ingresses Gemini trine Pluto and sextile Mars
Moon in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces
Sun’s transition today from Taurus to Gemini is a culmination of multiple celestial shifts that have taken place over the past few weeks, and its immediate aspects to both Pluto and Mars speak to its power and relevance on our road ahead.
While a Gemini Sun is typically associated with a playful uplifting influence, which it will be, its aspects to Pluto and Mars today impart an impressive potential for transformative beginnings in new directions we have been feeling approaching for some time now. There may certainly be some tension and sensitivity surrounding this embarkment, so steadying our vessel in the harbor swells while we board and load all the valuable lessons and gear we need for what lies ahead should be exercised as gracefully and kindly as possible.
The glory of our path ahead sleeps in the dreams we have dreamt and will unfold and awaken gradually if we adhere to the positivity and hopeful intentions that were put in place on the New Moon.

Moon in Cancer sextile Jupiter and North Node in Taurus
Moon in Cancer trine Saturn in Pisces
As our transitional phase of this new direction sorts itself out, we are reminded of the value of emotional processing and learning how to identify with our needs and wants, while at the same time reconciling the needs and wants of our loved ones. Sometimes the overwhelm of having to take into consideration the needs and wants of others can distract us, confuse us, and impede our progress on our own path forward. This is when we need to make enough time to sincerely listen to our hearts and minds to fully understand what it is we are looking for and why. If we pay attention and listen carefully in the silence, we just might recognize ourselves in the dreams we have envisioned unfolding for us.

Mars in Leo square Jupiter in Taurus
Moon conjunct Venus in Cancer
As Mars is freshly into its exciting and joyful journey through Leo, its square to Jupiter in Taurus amplifies the importance of maintaining a sustainable foundation of resources for our future. This square can exacerbate our spending and threaten the depletion of our finances, so holding fast to what we have and only utilizing what is necessary would be a good decision for a few days.
Our emotions may experience some upheaval and intensity as Moon and Venus connect in Cancer today. All the feels of what we are going through and embarking upon may make their way to the surface and need to be worked through with someone we love who is willing to listen and hold space with us. Let’s not be afraid to share our feelings during this time. It is a transformative shift we are all going through, so always remember that you are not alone in the celestial influences enveloping the happenings of our planet.

Moon in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces
Moon ingresses Leo, opposes Pluto, squares Jupiter, and conjuncts Mars
Moon in Leo square its Nodes
Waking up from the mesmerizing dreamworld should start our day with some mesmerizing feelings, although those feelings will shift into some bold, fiery struts showing everyone our stuff. We may not like the ways others do their thing, or try to do OUR thing, and we probably will not like what others have to say about our thing. This is a zesty testy transit of the Moon, activating the egoic, stubborn, and aloof influences of Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto’s placements in the firmament.
Fortunately, Moon travels quick enough to only magnify these influences for a short while, but we should not underestimate the effects it will have on our day. Because there is always potential for transits to be rewarding and uplifting, this could indeed bring a much-needed boost to our confidence and commitment to boldly follow the intentions and new journey we set out upon early in the week. It is, after all, our journey. And today’s astrology does support this beautiful potential.
It is worth revealing, however, that we may get caught up in a clash of egos with others who just do not see things the way we do. There can be a tremendous stubborn attachment to our desires and image, and even to our own personal experience going through a powerful transformation. It would be ideal to prepare for this day by planning on making it about ourselves. Not in a selfish and egotistic way, though that may be inevitable, just in a way that allows us to avoid having to explain ourselves to others who may unwittingly try to breech the boundaries of our personal space road ahead.

Moon in Leo square Mercury in Taurus
How we choose to go about what we desire to do could run up against some cautionary feedback from others. We might find ourselves challenged to justify the sustainability of our actions and intentions, thus cramping the style of our excitable egos. But this is a learning process for us to recognize and appreciate. Sometimes diving headlong into our passions without due diligence and prudence can upset the overarching circumstances we’ve painted ourselves into.
It would be good to at least reflect upon what we set out to do before we set out to do it. Taking the time to hash out the potential outcomes can prove invaluable to where we might find ourselves in a day, month, or year. It could be, too, that we are working through whatever yesterday brought into our lives. The heedless jumping into uncharted canyons before donning our wingsuit might be teaching us a lesson.

Moon in Leo square Uranus in Taurus
Venus in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus
The shape of the morning might surprise us if we are not open to the unexpected. There may be a jittery kind of excitement in the kitchen stirring a pot full of new ideas. We might want to make a little time today to ground into our bodies so we can feel into those ideas and better gauge how to proceed with them. If we aren’t swimming with myriad ideas, we might at least be contending with some ideas we have already had being unexpectedly redesigned.
It is certainly possible that we are feeling with much more clarity how we would like to have more sustainability and security in our lives. There may be more recognition surrounding how important and valuable that security is to us and our loved ones, and this can inspire and instigate us to creatively bring about bold and beautiful new concepts into our fray.

Moon in Virgo square Sun in Gemini
Moon in Virgo opposite Saturn in Pisces
Reckoning our creative and grandiose ideas with feasibility and pragmatism jolts us into reality today. There can be a clear thrust towards valuable refinement and clarity of how we can manage what needs to be done to bring forth our goals and visions. Though jolts of reality can be sobering and daunting, the morals and lessons sleeping within often prove vital to making our lives work more succinctly.
Going over all that we need to make better sense of, how to accomplish what needs done, and why the process must be undertaken comes out of the woodwork today. This is a healthy Saturday to cross T’s, dot i’s, and put our proverbial boots on for the workload upon us. Diving into our menial tasks may not be fun, but like homework, getting it done feels so good.
This is a transitional week of new directions, grounding our passionate flairs, getting our ducks in a row, and setting out on paths we may have not anticipated. Remaining open to what has not been considered can bear fruit we have never tasted, so honoring and trusting our creativity and out-of-the-box ideas should not be neglected. Just be sure to harness the influences of Friday and Saturday’s celestial configurations to refine them all down into the essence of what can work best for us.
