Early this morning, 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.
About three hours later, the moon forms a trine with Mercury in Taurus. Under this trine, we are open-minded and willing to learn. Our minds are sharp and our speech is clear.

As the sun sets, the moon forms 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. 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.

Around breakfast time, the moon forms an opposition to Mars in Aries. Under this placement, we may be particularly excitable.
