Is it normal for an empath to have moods that change from one extreme to the another one day to the next?

Yes. And quite often you will have multiple mood changes in the same day. It depends on the environment you're in and whether there are difficult people energies around you. And then if you are going through a period of unbalance and low vibration your shield is down and you'll be even more influenced by moods around you.
I should also mention what I call empath burnout. This is when you've been exposed to a lot of energies and stress for days or weeks. And you may not have been able to do the grounding necessary to stay ahead of those energies. And you get pushed down the down spiral from all the low energy you take in and become very cranky, sad, and burned out. During this phase, you become very sensitive, moody, and depressed and tend to overreact to what goes on around you.
Despite the obvious frustration and pain that results from empath burnout, we all go through it. The goal is to keep up with self-care and grounding so that you avoid an empath burnout episode. But sometimes its inevitable.
