Moon in Ardra Nakshatra today. This falls between 6:40 and 20:00 Sidereal Gemini.
This Nakshatra is ruled by Lord Rudra, the intense form of Lord Shiva. Rudra is the protector of righteousness and is ready to destroy weakness and adharma (ignorance). Be careful with what you destroy today. Animals may be important - protecting them.
Interesting this is the day health care reform was signed into law. Protecting animals (human animals).

In general Ardra has to do with protection and courageous and harsh actions when necessary.. Although the harsh and activated stuff would be more likely if a masculine planet is there - like the Sun, Mars or Jupiter. Masculine planets will often get moving to destroy weakness and violation of dharma (as it is seen and felt).
Moon and Venus are often overwhelmed by the glimpse of sadness and suffering here.. or at least they have to be careful of that.
Escapism and alcohol/ drugs or other indulgences are possible with this one.. For women it might be sensual indulgences at times, when Moon or Venus are there...
Rahu Nakshatras have that quality.
