Your thoughts are emotionally charged and you may communicate on instinct, expressing your emotions more articulately than usual.

You may express your nurturing and care for others through messages, phone calls and letters. You may be driven to pursue interests in topics about which you are emotionally and intellectually connected to.

Any imbalances at this time can show up as neurotic or anxious communication, expressing your subconscious fears or insecurities or becoming obsessive in your thinking about situations you don’t feel confident about.

As your thoughts are focused on creating emotional security, you may advocate for a raise or make shrewd business negotiations using eloquent communication or well crafted written work to appeal to those who can help you achieve business or financial goals.

Your mind is not in alignment with your emotions now. You may be rationalizing a situation which you have strong feelings about.

Your feelings will be known, however and attempts to suppress and avoid them will only backfire, they will leak into your conscious awareness through anxiety or lability if not acknowledged directly.

You may also have difficulty expressing yourself and communicating your needs because murky emotions interfere with your own clear understanding of what you want and need.

Take time to process feelings through journal writing or communications with others. Don’t be in a rush to figure things out and avoid neglecting your emotional life at this time.

You may have conflicting drives toward social activity and isolation at the same time.

Transiting Mercury opposite natal Moon

Your rational mind is in direct conflict with your emotional, intuitive nature. You may feel compelled to act in ways you feel you ‘shouldn’t’.

Likewise, you may also feel strong emotional tides that don’t logically make sense because you can rationalize a situation, telling yourself you ‘shouldn’t’ feel this way.

The best way to get through this conflict is to give space and validation to the gifts of both your rational and intuitive side, rather than trying to allow one to rule the other.

Avoid compulsive actions at this time. Your thoughts may tend to race due to an increase in anxiety or pressure to express your emotional nature rather than suppressing this part of yourself.

Avoid impulsively blurting out the first thing to come to your mind as this may create conflicts in relationships with others. You may have to process a few layers of emotion in order to really get to the heart of what you want and need right now.

Mental and emotional aspects of yourself are out of alignment at this time.

Your heart and instincts are pulling you in one direction while you may be talking yourself out of following your instincts, opting instead to try to find the logical, analytical path.

Meanwhile you may have an excess nervous energy that emerges as tension or insecurity, causing you to constantly over analyze and second guess yourself. You can’t easily make decisions at this time because on some instinctive level you recognize you aren’t being true to your inner wisdom. Draw from both the intellectual and intuitive realms to pursue your goals.
