Moon for June 7

Today the moon is in Cancer. The watery sign of home. Take time for comfort today. A moment for good food. And time for your heart. Feed yourself. Heal yourself today. Cancer is about the home. Try to find a place where you feel safe. Spend as much time there as you can today.

Early in the morning our safety will be challenged. The planet Pluto will oppose the moon. While the moon is resting in Cancer. A deep power is pulling us outward. From the sign of Capricorn we feel an urge to take a step outside our comfort zone. Today may not be the best day for this step. But it might be. Think about it, you can plan it even if you are not ready today. This is a step which could take you to a different place in your life.

Around noon the moon will square Uranus. The oddball planet wants to slow your energy. The Ram has its own focus. The drive of the mountain goat is success. While the Ram aims for personal goals. It is important to take into account your life mission. What are the goals who’ve had for your life. Are these goals closer today, or further? Take a moment during the pause today. Take a moment to meditate. Be careful of being lead by an impulse. Listen to your heart and your head.

Next comes a sextile with Mercury. The planet of the winged god is in Taurus. Our minds may normally be racing. But today they settle into a calm. On a mental level we don’t feel driven by the Ram. And not driven by the goat. We are more like the bull waiting for the storm to pass under a tree. Don’t get sidelined from the action today. But you can be just as aware without jumping into the mix. This is another pointer to meditate. In the space inside your mind you can find calm. Your passions speak to you. And your emotions speak to you. But you find the truth in the stillness.

The last aspect of the day is the moon trine Mars. This is the ruler of Aries. And its energy will mean a new urge for success. Your heart will leap again to be in action. Mars is retrograde in Scorpio. This in contrast to Pluto. Scorpio is a deep sign. It encourages powerful changes. The energy of Mars is shifted inward. This because it is retrograde. We feel like a change in the world is what we need. But today we need first a change in ourselves. Take a moment to see where you need to grow. What are the weaknesses you can overcome. Pluto is pulling from a deep source. This can be a healing source for the broken parts of our lives. We just need to have the courage to believe in our healing.

At the end of the day the moon enters Leo. Many of the healing moments can be released. Leo is the sign of the artist. So a creative outlet is a strong option. But not all are comfortable enough to create. This is the day we can start to put our plans into action. We begin to create the changes we made over the last few days. If we believe in ourselves we are strong. We are the star of our own lives again. Like when we were children. Leo takes all the process from the past couple days. Takes it and transforms it with fire into art. Turns the pain into healing. And turns the loss into acceptance. If you can’t create, just write. Find any way to express what you feel.

Moon for May 31

The moon is in Aries today. And it is a busy day in the sky. Aries bring a clear energy. Lots of ambition in the air. Many people may be thinking about change. Aries is the ram. Going out boldly on the path. Or when it needs, boldly making its own path. Today think of your own path. How bold are you? Can you blaze your own path?

The moon and Venus have a sextile mid-morn. The social planet of Venus is in a social sign. Gemini isn’t just social. It is also a mental sign. Working with other people, and their ideas will be important. Often it isn’t about one person being right and one wrong. But how we adapt our ideas. What have you learned and I haven’t. Working as a part of a group isn’t native to Aries. But it can be a strong source of energy. We don’t have to scale the heights alone. We have friends.

Just after mid-day the sun sextiles the moon. This continues the social air of the day. Aim to be as social as you can be today. You will discover something new about yourself. A truth about you, from a friend. Or maybe even an enemy. Who our enemies are, say more than who are our friends. If we have enemies. Because not everyone does. So shine your light into your friends today. And they will shine your light back.

Late afternoon the moon trines Saturn. The old guy is retrograde. From the sign of Sagittarius we get big ideas. If we spend too much time with people who support all our ideas. We could be in trouble. But a true friend will help you know what are bad ideas. Everyone has a bad idea or two, or more. It is important to know our limits. If we do not limit our drive. It will be curbed by something else. Our health, the law or just our energy. Keep strong, healthy and focused. Know when to say when. The message from Saturn is pay attention to ideas. But don’t go chasing every arrow today.

The day ends with the moon square Pluto. As much as there is a social drive for today. Our power comes from being true to our own path. And everyone walks a path alone. It is the path which departed in the woods, less traveled. Because no one else can walk your path with you. No one can walk it for you. And no matter how long you walk down another’s path. You will get no where. There is a door of the law only you can enter. Be true to your friends. But also true to yourself. To your own life purpose and mission. This is Capricorn. The ultimate duality of success. We never succeed alone. But we always succeed alone.

Moon for May, 30

It’s Monday. At the start of the day the moon is in Pisces. We start the day feeling mystical. A little lost if we try to focus too hard. But a little found if we just relax and let go for a moment. Life is so full of moments where we try too hard. Try this morning to let things be a little. And you may find things may be alright none the less.

In the early of the early evening the moon goes void of course. For a couple hours you may feel more rootless. Things done during the void period don’t have firm results. Many have passing effects.

The last aspect of Pisces is the moon and Mars. They form a trine with Mars in Scorpio. Mars is retrograde. We have a strong energy we feel on the inside. We may have less of an outward drive today. Because the trine energy pushes much of our drive inward. Mars is always pushing. But try to not let this energy drive you.

Mercury will dance with Pluto tonight. They form a trine. Mercury is in Taurus. And Pluto is in Capricorn. Mercury brings a settled mind. While Pluto adds a deep focus. If you have had something on your mind. Take a moment at the end of the day to meditate. Focus on the question in your mind. Travel into the question for sometime. You should be able to still the monkey mind. And find a deeper truth and answer.

In the evening the moon will enter Aries. This means a sharp focus could push us forward. Be sure to find a peace of mind before taking action. Aries is such a warrior and a voice for action. But we need to be sure our arrows are aimed true. And the battle we begin is a battle we can win.

Moon for May 25

Today the moon is in Capricorn. Aim high. Be all you can be today. You don’t have to be the best. Just make the most of the day. Our emotions today pull us toward success.

Early in the day is a trine between the moon and Jupiter. The large planet is in the sign of Virgo. The detailed and planning energy of Virgo can help us today. Jupiter is a hopeful planet. And this trine channels a good flow of energy. If we plan right, if we focus on details. There is reason to believe in our success. We are likely to draw good luck to us today. And this will re-enforce our upbeat mood.

Later the moon will trine Mercury. But the mental planet comes from the other earth sign. Our minds are going to slow us down. Mercury wants us to focus today. And with a smooth connection with our emotions. We should be able to find the mental space. Taurus is slow to change. But in this case it keeps us moving in one direction. Like a slow train we may be today. But a slow train pulling a heavy load.

About mid-morning the moon will sit along side Pluto. Together in the sign of Capricorn. These two draw a deep energy. If we can tap into our life mission today. We will find a great source of power. Sometimes all we have to do is look at things in a different way. And we can see how it applies to our life mission. I believe at our core we all have simple life missions. And we are all here for one reason. To spread love. If we can feel like we have a choice today, it will help us.

Late in the day the moon will square Uranus. This aspect could also help us to focus. It isn’t a day to wander too much. Uranus is in Aries. Another strong sign of focus. When you need to make progress stay on task. Tunnel vision can be helpful at times like these. Put every thing you have toward your goal today. Believe you can do it.

After this the moon goes void of course. It won’t enter the next sign until Thursday morning.

Moon for May 8 (Mothers’ Day)

Happy Mothers’ Day. And today the moon is in Gemini. The sign of the twins. You will likely see the other side today. There is always another side. We often only see one side. But the sign of Gemini is about the other side. It represents being able to bring both sides together.

Early in the day is a meeting with Neptune. The aspect is a square with Neptune in Pisces. The sign of and planet work together. And this pulls us away from our mind. This square adds a different point of view. It brings in a irrational logic. At least from the view of the neat truth. But not all our truths should he kept. And in the next couple days we will discover some which need to go. Just after the New Moon is a good time to let things go.

Next up is a square with Jupiter. This faithful planet is in Virgo. Where Neptune pulls you into the spirit. The planet Jupiter will put of focus on plans. Jupiter is an optimistic sign. This can give us courage. But first we must be able to see from a different view. To see other sides of what we believe to be true. And even to find somethings are wrong. The moon’s our soul. So we know this deep truth. And we know where we are wrong. But we don’t want to look. This square tells us it is time to look.

Saturn will oppose the moon next. This tight aspect is with Saturn in Sagittarius. If we are not careful today we can get lost. Limits are not something which are meant to hold us back in life. We are supposed to push beyond them and grow. But they are also not something to ignore. They hold lessons and messages. We need to take into account our limits. And while we aim to break them, we shouldn’t break ourselves in the process. And we should be careful of breaking the law. Both man’s law and nature’s law. The arrow of the archer pushes us all to look at our grand ideas. We think big and believe big. But we need to stay grounded.

And the end of the day Uranus will sextile the moon. This ends a day of thinking different. A day of feeling different. We look at the other side today and we gain for what we see. At the end of the day we take the lesson and grow. But it has to be adapted to ourselves. We are each unique and we feel this as the day ends. The message of the day is to grow. To see other ideas. And to understand the challenges you can push, and the ones you can not. Our challenges bring us together because we all struggle. But the keep us apart. Because no one else has your problems. And no one else can solve them for you. Uranus is in Aries. This will give you the focus you need today.

At this point the moon goes void of course.

Moon for April 30

Good morning Saturday. We wake to the moon in Aquarius. This sign is known for being odd. It stands alone. Ruled by the only planet which rolls in it orbit. The best place for you today may be by yourself. Understand you are unique. And your needs are not the same as others. Respect this and find your own happy today.

Early the moon is sextile Saturn. The moon is in the fixed sign of Aquarius. Saturn brings a fire energy. It is in Sagittarius. This mixes with air to create a hot passion. Stand your ground in who you are today. When you find what makes your heart sing. Hold on to it good. Saturn’s the planet of laws. But in this case the laws may be yours to write. Set a rule for yourself: “I don’t give up on myself.” And don’t break this rule. There is a responsibility in this choice. Take it serious.

In the afternoon the moon sextiles Uranus. The odd-ball ruler of Aquarius. This boosts the planet and the moon’s energy. Uranus is also in a fire sign: Aries. This sign is going to charge us up for a fight. And we may be ready for many foes. But the biggest foe is the one we are to ourselves. When we fail to believe in ourselves. Aries takes up many charges, but it needs Aquarius today. Because the odd-ball sign believes in itself. Uranus will urge you towards freedom. And push you to break the mold.

Late in the day is a square with Mercury and the moon. Our minds are on a different page today. And this slows our emotions. As our emotions slow our thoughts. Mercury in the sign of Taurus wants to take its time for everything. This makes us slow to make up our minds. We want to examine the issue. This is in contrast to the hype from the morning. All the fire energy has us wound up. And at the end of the day we find our calm in this aspect. Don’t make snap moves this morning. Wait until the dust settles.

Happy Birthday Kirsten Dunst.

Moon for April 29

Friday is an active day. The moon moves into Aquarius early. This is the sign of being you. Those with this as a birth sign stand out. And today you may feel the need to be you. To fill some role or do some thing which only you can. Fill your dharma today. Do it every day. But today it will be easier to see and easier to focus on. So step out and be brave.

Venus in Aries is squaring the moon. This early aspect spells trouble. There is an energy which pushes you forward. There isn’t enough time to be yourself. While these two planets are not opposed. They are not in agreement. The moon urges you to stand out by being away from the crowd. But Venus in Aries urges us to lead the crowd. Too often the leader of the crowd, does so at the cost of their own path. They just run to stay ahead of the pack. They don’t channel its energy or direction.

In the afternoon there is a sextile with Mars. This easy aspect hit the sign in Sagittarius. The fire sign of the wise man. The grand idea. Mars is going to feel restless. And it may make you restless. There are so many ideas on which way to go. Sagittarius has a supply of arrows. And if we are not careful we waste time and energy on ones which never land. Today we need focus. This aspect makes movement each. But it makes focus hard.

Venus is moving into Taurus next. This moves the planet into its home sign. The planet Venus is ruler of Taurus. As such it is both comfortable and powerful. Our values are becoming more solid. We are stepping away from the phase of high energy. We are moving into finding a lasting value. A stable value which doesn’t change from day to day. The trap in this is holding on to something long after its value has gone. We imagine what had value to us at one point always will. But this is not the case.

Finally the moon and sun square. We are not complete today. And we feel a dis-junction between our inner world and outer world. The sun is in Taurus still. The fixed earth sign. While the moon is in the fixed air sign. These two can work together. The sign of Aquarius offers the ideas. And the sign of Taurus the strength. But they can work to hold each other back. When Taurus doesn’t trust the ideas. And Aquarius doesn’t trust the will of the bull. Find a way to bring these two together today. Then you will be on the right road.

Today is Rod McKuen’s Birthday.
