January 31: Errors in Judgement
The moon is opposite Neptune at 9:09 a.m.
In the morning, the Virgo moon opposes Neptune in Pisces, stimulating our imagination, perhaps problematically so. Although we may be able to use this transit to our advantage by seeking creative, philanthropic, or spiritual counsel, we are predisposed to misunderstanding others because our own perception of self is muddled and skewed.
This time can be likened to admiring our reflection in a fun-house mirror. Our intuition is unreliable, and we can deceive ourselves, so any important decisions should be left to a later date, no matter how much we believe we are in control of our circumstances. Practices such as Tarot and meditation may miss the mark, yet provide us thoughtful consideration of our place and purpose. Creating art, music, or crafts should also be rather harmless activities. It’s far better to utilize these modalities over opting for escapist means such as drinking or drug-taking to excess, which makes matters temporarily beautiful and idyllic, but cause unrest in their aftermath.
The moon is trine Pluto at 7:17 p.m.
Come the evening, the moon forms a trine to Pluto in Capricorn, provoking awareness of danger. Information may be revealed which validates the unsettling feeling we have towards certain people or circumstances. Yet, while it is helpful to know we can trust our gut instincts, we may feel so affirmed in this single confirmation that we look for other enemies or threats where there are none.
This might especially occur in the presence of family members and loved ones, and we can come across as gratuitously intimidating, accusatory, or forceful. If we seek, instead, to have honest and transparent discussions where we express our concerns in a conscientious way, we will fare better than making judgments pre-emptively.
