Hello, besties, the Moon is moving into Leo today! What’s in store for us?
Decisions, that’s what. And it’s the First Quarter Moon, too! Quarter Moon phases are times that urge us to seek or accept change. More aspects to note before we jump into individual love forecasts: Usually, when the Moon is in Leo, we have the tendency to put ourselves out there. To be more confident to go after what we want. To be more expressive, dive into creative pursuits. Like the world is our oyster, you know?
However, there’s also a Moon Opposition Pluto aspect as well that throws walls or obstacles in our paths. The obstacles are change-oriented: what do you need to let go of to move forward? What sinks you? What have you not let go of just yet? What have you hidden away and let rot your soul? Uncomfortable truths might present themselves and it’s a personal choice to face them head-on and work through it, ignore it, or let it burden you.
Now, let’s jump into the individual love forecasts:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Go out there and fall in love, Aries! No, seriously, as the quarter moon rests in your pleasure-driven fifth, a change of pace might just be presented to you. Take your partner or crush out on a romantic date, take yourself out on a date, too! And if someone rains on your self-love parade, dance under it. Choose joy, Aries.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The quarter moon rests and opposes Pluto on your domestic and nostalgic fourth, Taurus, begging the question Are You Truly Home? You know what they say, right? Home is where the heart is, so, are you? Are there red flags you’ve been ignoring? Do you cling to the past like they’re souvenirs on your mantel? This Moon-Pluto aspect might push you to see your space for what it is and who you share it with. Time to physically and emotionally tidy up, Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
We can’t charm everybody, fellow Gems, and the Moon opposition Pluto aspect in our communication sector might just prove that today. Relationships might feel tricky to navigate and miscommunications could arise even when we’re being careful. However, should tension appear, look carefully and assess if this is an ongoing problem. Are patterns being uncovered? We’re used to being the ones talking, fellow Gems, but it’s time to listen. Listen well.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
What are you worth, Cancer? Do you know how to answer this question? How about this one then: In your relationships, what becomes of you? Today might be a good day to introspect regarding this as the Moon opposition Pluto aspect affects your worth and intimacy sectors (even if you won’t pointedly think about it, it might just pop up). Cancers have the tendency to be too soft-hearted in relationships, giving too much to the point of depletion. Patterns might unravel today, Cancer, pay attention.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
The quarter moon is in your sign, Leo, but you might not be up for a lot of socializing this time. Your main priority is you (as it should be), with the Moon opposing Pluto, an audit into your life (and where you spend your energy and time) might be in order. Are you needlessly dragging along certain situations or people in your life even if the cost is your own peace? Relationships might feel rocky right now as patterns unravel and old hurts resurface. Find time to breathe alone.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You might be prone to negative self-talk today, Virgo, as the Moon sits and opposes Pluto in your subconscious twelfth. Insecurities, even those you thought you’d healed from, might surface. You might look at yourself in a harsher light than necessary. The best thing to do is rest through it, bestie, and don’t believe the mean voice in your head telling you you aren’t enough or doing enough. You are. And if your beloved tells you they love you, believe them, too. There’s no ulterior motive, people can just love you for you, you know?
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Friction may arise in your friend group, Libra, as the Moon sits and opposes Pluto in your social eleventh. You might feel like you need to resolve this tension but recognize if this is truly a burden that you need to carry for yourself or if this is a burden that needs to be addressed at all. Perhaps some quiet time by yourself or with your partner might be the better option for you today.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
The assertive Moon-Pluto opposition aspect rests in your career and domestic zone, Scorpio. These areas need a closer look, what isn’t working? Is it not moving the way you intended? Have you been ignoring red flags? Let love take the backseat this time to work on these first should they arise as these could be major stressors in the long run.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Growth is today’s keyword for you, Sagittarius, as the Moon travels to your expansive house, with Pluto opposing in your communication sector. The areas of your life you wish to change might be more evident today as patterns begin to surface and unravel. You might also be more agreeable to change as the expansive ninth house influences your approach. Priorities might rearrange a little to make way for positive changes. If you have a partner, it’s high time to get them onboard this train, although the possibility that they aren’t is always there.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Today, you’re going to look at intimacy differently, Capricorn. Perhaps its current definition has outlived itself or you’re going to be presented with what you can do differently, perhaps unhealthy—nay, toxic!—patterns would show themselves. Feel love a little deeper today, Capricorn, the Moon-Pluto aspect encourages you to.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Your role in your relationships—whether current or otherwise—will be called into question today, Aquarius, as the Moon opposition Pluto aspect affects both your relationship and self. What patterns have you found yourself going back to time and time again? Do you prioritize yourself in your relationships? At the end of the day, do you like who you are or who you become when you’re in a relationship? Sort your heart today if you can, Aquarius.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You might be more busy optimizing your life than falling in love today, Pisces, as the Moon opposition Pluto aspect affects your elusive twelfth and efficient sixth. Pay attention to where improvement will be needed. You might be too busy trying to plan/rearrange/compartmentalize your life to even take notice of romance though. Be sure to be on the same page with your partner to avoid conflict.
