The moon in Libra clashes with Saturn at 1:00 AM, then connects with Jupiter at 4:39 AM, and squares off with Pluto at 5:37 AM, making for a busy emotional atmosphere—and emotions become especially intense as the moon enters Scorpio at 5:26 PM. The moon connects with Mars at 6:18 PM, finding us in an energized mood, and we're having serious conversations, thanks to Mercury’s connection with Saturn at 7:09 PM. This energy can be cold, but it's fantastic for getting focused. The moon opposes Venus at 8:47 PM, and we’re deeply aware of our desires.
