The Cancer Moon squares Saturn in Libra today (exact at 3:58 p.m. CST), making for a bit of a dreary feel to the day. We're wiggling our way through a number of emotional challenges that can make us feel confined or trapped in emotional states or physical circumstances. Pathos, self-pity, and gritted-teeth frustration could be on tap with this aspect colouring our whole day.
Add to this the fact that Pluto is currently stationing in Capricorn square Uranus-Pallas Athene in Aries, and we're under some pretty major pressure, both macro and micro.
Mercury is just pulling out of its exterior (direct) conjunction to the Sun in Virgo, and this adds to the possibility of little irritations stirring much bigger reactions than they warrant. Take breaks from the hypercritical intensity in order to ward off ugly interactions.
The Moon's square to Saturn is the last aspect it makes before going void-of-course late this afternoon, and we're kept under the Saturnine thumb, in a sombre mood and sometimes struggling for self-control, until 9:00 p.m. tonight when the Moon enters Leo.
Easing this load is the fact that the Moon is functional and at home in Cancer, and Saturn is very strong in the last degrees of Libra. The emotional challenges we move through today have an air of finality about them.
