Strategy and loving self-care

The enthusiastic Aries moon blends its energies harmoniously with Mercury in objective Aquarius early this morning. This is a great opportunity to blend bold expression with clear strategy, starting our day with inspired energy and intellectual initiative. It’s a very social and talkative combination, as well as a time for brainstorming and pulling raw ideas out of the ethers to be harnessed into effective action. The overall tone is one of individuality and independence when we collaborate most strongly with others by coming from a self-confident position.
