Monday, JUNE 26
The Moon continues its transit of Libra today, and the First Quarter Moon occurs at 3:51 AM EDT when the Cancer Sun forms a square with the Libra Moon. We may become aware of obstacles related to a plan or project. This can be a time of stress, clashing, and discord, but also of high energy, motivation, and growth. We’re competitive and ambitious, stirred into action.
Energizing this theme is Mars forming a square to Uranus this morning, stimulating an urge to break free of restrictions. This influence can point to combative, rebellious, and unpredictable responses. It creates an atmosphere that tempts us to take risks or act on impulses without considering the consequences. We may be too quick to satisfy immediate desires or to rebel if we feel at all confined or restrained. We can be frustrated with anything requiring us to conform, and we’re inclined to assert our independence abruptly. Inner tension begs for release now, but we should avoid sudden moves.
Mercury’s quincunx to Pluto this afternoon–just before Mercury changes signs– suggests our perceptions are off. It may be better not to make final judgments. Certainly, decision-making can be fraught. It’s difficult to digest or accept a matter. We might also trigger negative responses from others.
Mercury moves into the sign of Cancer, where it will transit until July 11th. During this cycle, we think, speak, and take in information on a deep, intuitive level. Our emotions color our thoughts more than usual, we communicate with more sensitivity, meaning, and care, and our memory is retentive. It’s a time to absorb information about the emotional background, atmosphere, and setting. We’re picking up on moods and tones in addition to facts. The day can be complicated and frustrating in spots, but also pivotal.
