On the 1st, the sun is in a challenging square to nebulous Neptune which can create an atmosphere of misunderstandings or errors in judgment. Neptune rules the sign Pisces and is a water planet indicating rain, even floods or sweltering heat. Floating meditation is an excellent way to use the higher vibrations of the moment.
