The moon in Libra connects with Venus at 2:00 AM and the sun at 6:25 AM, creating a gentle and confident atmosphere. The moon connects with expansive Jupiter at 9:27 AM, creating a generous energy—but watch out for grumpy vibes as the moon clashes with serious Saturn at 10:46 AM. The moon squares off with powerful Pluto at 8:50 PM and connects with fiery Mars at 10:26 PM—set your ego aside; big power struggles may take place and people are agitated. Honor your angry emotions—they're valid! Just don't take it out on your friends or pick random fights; take it to your journal instead.

All times ET.
