The Moon is in frisky Gemini all day, assisting us in cheerful thoughts and speech as we watch everything around us and inside us change. We are vocal, mentally sharp and ready for action today, don’t misuse this opportunity to make strides.

Early this morning the Moon sextiles the Leo Sun who in turn semi-squares Jupiter in Virgo, pitting wild exuberance against practical excitement. We are looking forward to new opportunities but we are tempered with good sense. We want to color all our experiences with a broad paintbrush and bright colors yet we have the sense to notice what is and what was not truthful.

The Moon opposes Rx Saturn and squares Rx Neptune blurring the lines between reality and fantasy, past and present. It may be tough to focus, so money matters and important decisions should be held off until you feel a bit more on the ball.

The Moon semi-squares Uranus who then turns retrograde today, (bringing the amount of retrograde planets back to five!) and will remain so until December 29th, asking us to change from the inside out. Our attitudes towards the status quo will most likely change as we see everything around us from a much different perspective, plus we see cataclysmic events in our past in a much brighter light. Paradigm shifts will be occurring on a global scale all while we do the personal heavy lifting in our own little corners. Challenging the system, rebelling against anything that keeps you down and voicing opinions loudly will be on the agenda for the next 5 months.

Tonight a Mercury-Mars square can bring out an impatient, disagreeable side of us, especially if confronted about our beliefs, or our commitment to change. It may be tough to get a word in edgewise, making a healthy exchange of ideas difficult o say the least. Take deep breaths, stay extra mindful and make your point as a poised, respectful human.

Luckily, Mercury enters Virgo tomorrow, giving us a clearer more practical head and a measured, sensible tongue.

Tarot Cards of the Day: 8 of Wands, Page of Swords and 5 of Wands-things may happen quickly around us so we need to keep a steady mind and keep responses light. There may be challenges to overcome, but becoming confrontational or jumping into the fray may not be the solution. Those with the coolest demeanor will prevail.

Stay grounded with black onyx and keep intuition open with an amethyst. Make a lavender, vanilla essential oil blend. In yoga get all aggressive feelings out with a strong vinyasa and a soul searching savasana. keeping active will help us sort out our feelings.
