Additional stress is piling on due to the Moon in Aries squaring Mercury retrograde in Capricorn (6:48AM) while Pallas moving into a frictional, 45-degree tie to Saturn (8:36AM) suggests that mental fatigue can replace skillful problem-solving abilities. Circumstances beyond your control appear to be in the driver’s seat. However, the Moon trine to Venus (6:41AM) and a subtle and yet still supportive, 30-degree link from Mercury to Venus (7:26AM) attempt to shift the daily scales of life-experience from doubt to hope.
The arrival of the First Quarter Sun-Moon Phase (activating 27 degrees of Capricorn and Aries at 3:27PM) suggests the need to cut through apparent obstacles in your path. Manage your business affairs with finesse via building up self-confidence.
The 6 hours after the Sun and Moon are in square formation (3:27PM) emanate an aura of haziness as the void-of-course lunar cycle holds sway until rock-solid Taurus draws in the Moon’s vital power for the next two days starting at 9:49PM. Be a pillar of strength overnight for friends or loved ones on the ropes.
