February 11: The moon enters Libra



The moon is trine Saturn at 9:37 a.m.

The moon in detail-focused Virgo is trine strict Saturn in Capricorn this morning, bringing our emotional awareness in alignment with our duties and responsibilities. Saturn in Capricorn is delivering some great tests and trials that will produce enormous resilience and deeply embodied wisdom long-term if we can persevere. If we are realistic and evaluate the usefulness and sustainability of our actions and choices now, it can help us form healthy habits and practices as an enduring way of life.

The moon is square Mars at 10:26 a.m.

Just when we are feeling like we are getting our ducks in a row, the demure and reserved moon in Virgo comes into a frictional square with Mars in ebullient Sagittarius later this morning, potentially stirring up some anxiety and uncertainty. Virgo loves to put things in order, yet Sagittarius reflexively kicks against anything that resembles walls, so we may find our emotional awareness and intentions are working at cross purposes with restlessness and need for initiative. Mars in Sagittarius may be illuminating truths that are hard to sort out, so we may have to sit with some discomfort and ambivalence for the early part of the day.

The moon enters Libra at 3:27 p.m.

By the late afternoon, the lunar mood moves in a more social and Venusian direction as the moon moves into luxury-loving Libra. It may make the evening feel a bit calmer after a rather angsty afternoon, and it could be a good opportunity to enjoy relaxing and inspiring activities, like an art show, listening to music, or just let go of any work or planning for a while. Taking a break from thinking, analyzing, and inward reflection may be in order to clear the slate so that we can see our projects in a new balanced frame of mind tomorrow.
