January 8: Moon in Gemini square Neptune and trine Venus

Intuition, inspiration and creative forces


The moon is square Neptune at 12:27 a.m.

 Overnight the moon in dabbling Gemini comes into a friction-causing square aspect with nebulous Neptune in Pisces. We may wake to a potentially angsty and unsatisfied mood, perhaps feeling a little anxious and foggy all at once. Starting off the day in the wake of this aspect may exacerbate a feeling of impatience, spinning our wheels against the long, slow, oceanic processes of the universe opening and meandering on its own mystical and mysterious course.

The moon in Gemini is a placement that often induces the external processing of feeling states by talking these through, however it may just leave us feeling more confused than when we started with this approach today. Since Neptune is associated with dreams, it may mean we experience this whole conundrum while sleeping, causing us to wake in an unrested fog. We may try to explain what we dreamt of over our morning coffee, quickly finding that dream logic melts in the morning sun.


Mercury is sextile Neptune at 5:03 a.m.

 As the morning unfolds, however, Mercury in structured Capricorn forms a supportive and clarifying sextile to Neptune in Pisces and its illusory, amoebic ideas. Perhaps something of the active, unusual night reflections will survive in our thoughts, an image, or idea we cannot shake that gives us new insight as the day unfolds.

The moon is trine Venus at 2:16 p.m.

 By the afternoon, the chatty, active, sociable Gemini moon forms a beneficial trine with experimental Venus in Aquarius. This is a lively, upbeat connection, with the strong air aspect opening opportunities for flirtatious conversations that playfully articulate what is in our hearts. This connection could also lend itself to an exchange of creative ideas, and we may have especially poetic or lyrical breakthroughs in our writing projects and correspondences.
