The moon in nurturing Cancer connects with action planet Mars at 1:59 AM, with sweet Venus at 3:44 AM, and with wild Uranus at 4:27 AM, inspiring courage, creativity, and ingenuity. Venus connects with Uranus at 11:37 AM, and we're ready for a change. We're craving freedom and want to experiment, but the moon opposes Saturn at 5:45 PM, which will remind us what our limits are, in case we're veering too close to wreckless abandon. The moon connects with Neptune at 11:29 PM, inspiring empathy, romance, and spiritual connection.

All times ET.
