January 11: Moon in Leo square Uranus

Bold expression supports sudden initiative


The moon enters Leo at 4:16 a.m.

 The emotional tone shifts from insular, and receptive to active, expressive, and somewhat theatrical as the moon shifts into proud Leo today. Our intimate connections take on a bold, ebullient tone, as we reach out to touch the world around us with courage and creative inspiration. It could set the stage for a lively, more social weekend after a few days of rest and reflection. We may want to go out, move, and be seen—so perhaps a Saturday night dance party is in store?


The moon is square Uranus at 8:43 a.m.

 The proud and potent emotional expression of the day comes into odds with the radical energies of Uranus in Taurus with this potentially fiction causing square aspect. Since the moon’s aspects are quick, fleeting, and of an emotional nature, it may momentarily present as some restlessness, frustration, and angst that pops up in our communications with others. Leo and Taurus are both fixed signs, so stubborn and obstinate positions will need to be softened with deep breaths and adaptability to reach a diplomatic compromise.


The moon is trine Mars at 1:54 p.m.

 By the afternoon, the edgy square between the Leo moon and Uranus in Taurus passes, shifting the focus over to the moon’s trine with Mars in Sagittarius—lighting up the afternoon and evening with enthusiasm and a thirst for adventure. Any angsty moments that linger from the day may now find a physical outlet for release, to be channeled into action and initiative that propels us forward with courage and optimism. It’s a great aspect for moving and sweating out frustrations and differences.
