At 5:17 a.m.: The moon is opposite Mars

In the morning, the Virgo moon opposes Mars in Pisces, stoking irritability. We are especially critical of others’ behavior, especially those who we are closest to and therefore who we deem as the most “in need” of our advice.  In truth, we scrutinize others because we are hyper-conscious of our personal flaws and failings. Projecting our insecurities elsewhere is a handy method of keeping the high ground. However, others are likely to respond flippantly to our criticisms. We end up feeling like we are fighting with a brick wall, which is essentially true, as we are fighting with the contents of our own subconscious minds. Instead, we might labor in defense of those who are less capable of defending themselves. 

At 7:02 a.m.: The moon is trine the sun

Following this, the moon trines the Taurus sun, allowing us to get grounded in our own needs. Staying present helps us to make intentional alterations to our own behavior. Our attitude softens as we embrace self-acceptance. Remember, we don’t need to criticize others’ choices to make our own seem more credible. Once we recognize this, our relationships improve.
