Cancer Moon Opposite Pluto

(Cancer moon opposite Pluto at 2:05 p.m. EDT and square Venus at 7:02 p.m.)

Today we can still nurture ourselves and others with caretaking and sensitivity, but it may be harder to keep our calm. The opposition from Pluto can feel like someone or something is trying to overpower us. Try to absorb what’s happening. See the situation more deeply rather than let it incite you. It could be a great opportunity to balance your emotion and imagination with some steadiness, maturity, and ambition.

When the moon squares Venus it can again appear like a conflict with another. Venus is in Aries, the sign of the Warrior, and in a wide conjunction with Uranus, the energy of shocks and earthquakes. So there’s potential for a fight or disturbance you didn’t expect. But there’s also a chance for a sudden connection or flash of brilliance around art, peace or connection. Try to face any challenge as a chance to grow. Remember the Gemini sun’s invitation to collect more information and Mercury’s invitation to communicate with steadiness and love.

I’m still on my family vacation, so I’m wondering how this energy will play out as fourteen people try to navigate their own instincts and get their needs met. Hopefully the love we have for each other will inform all the emotion of the day, and we can all stretch from our own positions to integrate all our individual needs and strengths. Wish us luck!
