At 4:07 a.m.: The moon is square Mars, and the moon void of course begins

In the morning, the moon squares off with Mars in Taurus, making us irritated. On an emotional level, we seek freedom now. During the Aquarius moon, we don’t want to be tied down to anything or anyone. However, Mars in Taurus thrives in known parameters. It appreciates set plans and practical action.  We might encounter situations where others expect us to fall in line or adhere to an agenda. This wouldn’t be out of the question; we probably agreed to participate at a time when the moon wasn’t moving through such a rebellious sign! However, now we are committed through a verbal or written agreement, and we feel trapped.  We can even become angry and take out our frustrations on the wrong people! The best course of action would be to employ the direct approach and explain our situation without blaming others. We got ourselves into this mess, and we can get ourselves out.  The moon then enters a void period, discouraging us from starting new projects.

At 11:44 a.m.: The moon enters Pisces, and the moon void of course ends

Before noon, the moon enters Pisces, ending its void of course. Over the next two days, we are more sensitive and in touch with our intuition. The moon and Neptune are the only planets currently transiting water signs, and we can use this influence to balance the energies of more dominant elements.  We are likely to be in a more dreamy, creative headspace now. This is a perfect lunar period for artistic or spiritual seekers to tune into their practices and flow with the natural rhythms of the universe. Poets and writers, musicians, and meditators—this is your time!
