Experiencing relationship conflicts? Draw boundaries today!

June 22, 2024

At 3:20 a.m.: The moon is opposite Venus

In the pre-dawn hours, the Capricorn moon opposes Venus in Cancer, sparking relationship conflict. While the moon is in Capricorn, our demeanor tends to be more stoic and reserved. We come across as serious, and our emotional security hinges upon having the practical dimensions of our lives sorted out. Unfortunately, this strict, pleasure-denying attitude can also make us quite cold, especially when contrasted with the tenderness of Venus in Cancer. We might play either of these roles in our relationships now: the icy one or the motherly one (which can come off as cloying and possessive). In the romantic department, you may need to discuss partnership expectations, the division of roles, or emotional needs. These topics reflect how you view your self-worth, which you should carefully scrutinize today.   

At 9:37 a.m.: The moon is trine Mars

After sun-up, the moon trines Mars in Taurus, helping us to assert ourselves. We might have to draw boundaries to reinforce our self-esteem. Here, honesty and firm conviction is the best policy. Let others know you are not trying to ignore or hurt their feelings. However, there are other pressing concerns. As much as we sometimes rail against them, boundaries give us confidence because they let us know where we stand. When issues are not addressed or left open-ended, insecurity can begin to arise. At this time, trust your instincts and do what must be done.
