The moon enters practical Virgo at 12:55 AM then harmonizes with Uranus, planet of the unexpected at 4:35 PM, helping us resolve accidents and find a backup plan. At 6:25 PM the sun faces off with warrior Mars—a frustrating standoff requiring compromises. Conversations flow as the moon gently connects with messenger Mercury at 8:19 PM, but we are repeating ourselves as Mercury retrograde begins at 9:04 PM, signaling delays and miscommunications. We are sensitive to our desires and needs as the moon meets with sweet Venus at 10:55 PM.
