In the pre-dawn hours, the Virgo moon opposes Saturn in Pisces, provoking loneliness. We may feel overwhelmed or depressed. Physical distance from loved ones can amplify these emotions, causing us to believe that no one understands or sympathizes with us. Alternatively, we might worry that others will expect more from us than we can provide. We, therefore, self-isolate, fearing we will not live up to their expectations. Don’t be so hard on yourself! Take care not to needlessly push others away.
After sun-up, Pallas, the goddess asteroid of strategy and wisdom, enters social, judicious, Libra. Here, Pallas’ strategies are cooperative ones. We will fare best working with partners towards shared goals. Our conflict-resolution skills are especially strong. By acting as mediators, we can assess differences of opinion to arrive at sensible compromises. However, the risk lies in oversimplifying problems, reducing them to black-and-white terms. We may believe we’ve found a convenient solution for a systemic issue, when we’ve really just identified a surface fix. Nevertheless, diplomacy and tact are our strengths now. We can leverage these to get our plans through pipelines or to improve rapport within our relationships.
