The moon enters Aries at 8:00 p.m.

The evening gives way to night and comes alive with potent, fiery emotional expression. The moon shifts into Aries, and under the rulership of tenacious Mars in Scorpio, the bemused feeling that we began the day on morphs into a sharper, more penetrating mood. Impulsivity and reactivity have us feeling like anything is possible! Conversations veer easily into debates—and further into arguments—if we don’t keep our touchiness and reactivity in check.
