This is not an easy day for the Moon, and we may feel challenges and discomfort moving through our systems throughout the day. If you can, leave plenty of time to breathe and slow down, to be still and recover. As the Moon makes a conjunction to Saturn in Capricorn, we may not be able to distinguish ourselves from our fears of scarcity or not being enough. This lunation cycle is asking us to confront our shame and move towards abundant pleasure, but in the process, old messages about laziness, inadequacy, and failure may arise. Making a sextile to Neptune in Pisces, the Moon reminds us to soften, to remember that we are part of something larger and already more than we can perceive. The Moon is then overcome by a superior square from Mars in Libra. Working with others may be a struggle. Conflict and the potential for hurt feelings are in the air, so be prepared to do the work of repair. Finally, the Moon makes a conjunction to Pluto, intensifying the already difficult feelings of the day. Pluto teaches us about the nonnegotiable transformation that comes from moving through the underworld—of our own repression and unconscious as well as the repression and unconscious of the world in which we are living. At the conjunction, we might not yet be clear on what we have refused to acknowledge that is now demanding attention. Remember, we often repress as an act of survival. We feel we cannot bear to witness or hold some part of ourselves or our experience, so we bury it. Today it is enough to simply sit with the knowledge that there is more that is waiting to be uncovered. Take some time to be with yourself, breathe deeply, and feel into that acknowledgement: there is more to me than I have accepted or acknowledged.
