The moon in protective Cancer clashes with warrior Mars at 1:35 AM and we're eager to take action, but watch out for irritability! The moon connects with Venus at 9:26 AM, creating a more peaceful atmosphere before the moon opposes Saturn at 9:29 AM, asking us to slow down and reflect on our responsibilities. Sweet Venus connects with taskmaster Saturn at 9:58 AM, and while this isn't a snuggly, affectionate energy, it is productive for discussing wants and standards, and for working out commitments. The moon connects with Neptune at 12:18 PM, inspiring creativity. The moon opposes the lord of the underworld Pluto at 8:07 PM, so watch out for shady behavior. The moon connects with Mercury at 10:06 PM, inspiring communication.
