The moon squares Venus at 6:20 a.m., then enters Cancer at 11:03 a.m.

The lively Gemini moon makes a square with Venus in compassionate Pisces, activating our emotional expression around matters of the heart. There is some friction here, but it is ultimately helpful in relationship matters, as we can use the edge in the air to get into some important conversations with our loved ones.

Later in the morning, the buzz of the Gemini moon settles, and a time to turn our awareness inward takes hold as the moon shifts into nurturing Cancer. The next two days will best be spent in reflection and restoration of our bodies and emotional health after a few days of social activity and lively conversation.
