At 12:02 a.m.: The moon is opposite Jupiter

Just after midnight, the Libra moon opposes Jupiter, engendering large-heartedness. Jupiter in Aries encourages excessive behavior, making it difficult to maintain relational balance. We might be inconsiderate; however, egregious actions are less likely at this time.  Ultimately, our hearts are in the right place. We simply believe we are compromising more than we really are. Expecting higher guidance to steer our decision-making may or may not prove wise. Many of us will be asleep at this hour, under the spell of strange dreams that seem spiritually significant. If we are granted insight into our relationships while we slumber, we should exercise caution before putting nocturnal logic into practice in waking life. 

At 7:54 a.m.: The moon is trine Mercury

In the morning, the moon trines retrograde Mercury in Gemini, facilitating easy introspection. There’s a bit of a disconnect in verbalizing what is on our minds now, but we can busy ourselves with lighthearted social engagements that forgive conversational faux pax.  By keeping things surface-level, we avoid the accidental offenses that might result from discussing controversial topics. Our interactions with friends and family make us reflective of our relating style. We might consider the methods by which we typically achieve compromise, and whether our approach is needlessly self-sacrificial.
