Yes, Friday the 13th is coming but don’t freak out!

We have talked about how lunar aspects affect our emotions. And we have talked about what our personal moon placements mean. If you are still unsure of what your moon sign is, you can check it here.

Let’s talk about this week’s lunar transits and how they may affect our daily lives. 

Monday, January 9th


This morning, the moon in Leo forms a square with Uranus in Taurus. Our moods can be unpredictable under this square. This instability is causing a rift with our romantic partners. Our heightened sensuality and growing irritability are making our relationships run hot and cold. When we feel moody, it is easy to slip into old habits that bring us comfort. This coping mechanism is perfectly alright, as long as it does not lead to self-destructive tendencies.

This evening, the moon forms an opposition with Saturn in Aquarius. Under this opposition, we may feel restricted and unsatisfied with life. It may be difficult for us to be honest with others about how we feel. We may find it hard to trust others as well. This distrust of others may cause us to feel isolated from our community, especially our loved ones. We may feel alienated from a maternal figure. It may be time to reach out to a close confidant, a spiritual leader, or mental health professional.

Tuesday, January 10th


Around mid-morning, the moon has moved out of extravagant Leo and into rational Virgo. Under a Virgo, you are overcome with the need to take care of yourself mentally, emotionally, and physically. You can do some stretches before bed. You can fix yourself a yummy and healthy midnight snack. You can listen to your favorite song or ASMR video to help you relax before you go to sleep. Take care of yourself in a way that makes you feel good and rested.

Wednesday, January 11th


In the wee hours of the morning, the moon forms a square with Mars in Gemini. This square brings out our passion, but it can also bring out our competitive spirits. We feel particularly argumentative, especially with the opposite sex. We try to mask our emotions with hasty decisions. It is important that we acknowledge our own feelings at this time, rather than repressing them. Journaling or talking to a trusted confidant can help.

Around breakfast time, the moon forms a trine with Mercury in Capricorn. This trine gives us a level head. We are eager to learn and we use good judgment. Under this placement, we are more likely to use critical thinking and positive rhetoric to overcome our troubles. We are open to experiencing anything new. At this time, we can easily influence others with our charisma and leadership qualities. However, it is important that we wield this power with great discernment. We want to keep our influence a positive one.

Later in the afternoon, the moon forms a high-spirited trine with Uranus in Taurus. Under this trine, we feel sharp and ambitious. We are painstakingly completing whatever tasks come our way. We are also finding new-fangled and innovative ways to solve our problems. At this time, we are not only working diligently, we are working cheerfully. We are eager to help our friends and colleagues. Our amicable demeanor is helping to influence people in a positive way.

Thursday, January 12th


As we get ready for our day, the sun in Capricorn forms a trine with the moon. Under this trine, we experience levels of harmony that would make a Libra jealous. At this time, we feel physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy. We have a healthy work-life balance and we feel proud of our accomplishments. The relationships with our friends and family are strong and our relationship with our partner is flourishing. Take some time to warm yourself in the glow of your personal and professional achievements. You’ve earned it.

A couple of hours later, the moon forms an opposition with Neptune in Pisces. Under this opposition, we may suffer from imposter syndrome. We may feel a little off-kilter. Our feelings can be easily hurt, but we may not be upfront with others about how we feel. If your loved ones say or do something that hurts you, tell them. If they get mad at you for standing up for yourself, they are not worth your time.

In the early evening, the moon forms a trine with Pluto in Capricorn. Under this trine, emotions and desires that have laid dormant within us are being brought to the surface. Now is the perfect time to eat at that new restaurant or take part in an activity that you have never tried before. It may be fun to visit a new town and meet new people.

A few hours later, the moon moves into congenial Libra. Under this moon, we feel light-hearted and open-minded. Just as Libra craves balance, we too, desire harmony. At this time, we are concerned with matters of love and our relationships. We are feeling particularly romantic. Spend quality time with your partner. Or if you’re unattached, venture out and meet someone new.

Friday, January 13th


While we slept, the moon formed an opposition with Jupiter in Aries. Under this opposition, we do not like to be ordered around. We may behave in a defiant manner towards authority figures. We are on edge, and this edginess may lead to arguments and problems with our loved ones. Our short temper may alienate us from the ones we love. When we feel alienated, we may be tempted to indulge in substances like alcohol. We must be careful not to overindulge because our liver is especially vulnerable at this time.

At lunchtime, the moon forms a trine with Mars. Under this trine, we are endowed with great physical and mental energy. This transit gives us newfangled ideas and enhances our adaptability. You may have struggled with hardships recently, but you are pushing through and persevering. The wind is in our sails and nothing can get in your way.

Later, the moon forms a square with Mercury. The moon and Mercury are both mutable by nature, and this square may cause our behavior to become, if you will forgive the pun, mercurial. These ever-changing moods can make us thoughtless, unpredictable, and impulsive.
