The Gemini new moon is moving over a critical degree, adding more restlessness to the day. We may feel like we are doing more than usual, but by the end of the day, realize that we have accomplished only a little. This is because we are not as focused. If we have a plan developed before the day starts, and stick to the agendas, we may get more done than our peers. This is not a good day to simply try to wing it.
Mercury in Taurus can help us stick to the plan that we create. But if we need to go off track, it may not be so easy to get it back. Mercury is sextile to Neptune in Pisces. An excellent aspect to accentuate our talents for others.
Venus in Aries is sextile to Mars in Gemini and square to Pluto in Capricorn. We may be a bit too impulsive in our interactions with the opposite sex, and also with our funds. Mars is transiting out of bounds for the remainder of the month, adding intensity to our actions.
Mars in Gemini is also sextile to Uranus in Aries, while opposing Saturn in Sagittarius. Sudden decisions could add to our frustrations this week. Remember to take a breath and calm our emotions before reacting. Otherwise, we may not be able to make the best choice.
Jupiter retrograde in Libra has moved out of the difficult aspects that seemed to cause a lot of strife, earlier this year. There will be a return of that strife, later in the year, but we'll be able to see it from a different perspective at that time. For today, Jupiter is transiting over a critical degree of Libra, that is likely to cause us to push for more freedom.
Uranus in Aries is also transiting over a critical degree. It is uncommon to have this many planets transiting critical degrees on the same time. This, of course, intensifies the influences that the new moon brings for us.
The majority of the planets today are moving through masculine signs, that encourages us to be more independent in our interactions. We can use this to help us lead with proactive interactions. Unfortunately, we may not sustain these actions, because there is only one planet, Mercury, in a fixed sign. We will need to tap into other strengths to accomplish the goals we hope to achieve.
Overall, we are motivated and ambitious. Staying the course, will be the difficult component for the day, especially if we let our restless energies take over.
