The energy is building in intensity with this Moon, and Saturn is the lone evening planet. This combination brings vibrations provoking critical thinking. You are a kind and caring person with a fine intellect. But today, wounded pride is your weakness as you tend to wilt if people say anything that you perceive as criticism. Often we feel the worst about ourselves right after we get the criticism that triggers those voices in our heads. If you can, step back and away from the critique and do something else—preferably something you know how to do well that makes you feel good, and come back when you’ve calmed down and are ready to tackle the criticism. Focus on what truly matters to you. Sometimes we forget what matters, and what isn’t that important. Some things just aren’t worth getting too upset over. Fortunately, you have a strong resilience and will bounce back quickly.
