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, 17

Tonight I wonder about my patterns. As often as I can I write an astrology post. But it isn’t consistent. I miss many days. And then I will post for days. But do I write more when the moon is in some signs. And do I miss more days when the moon is in other signs. Not tonight, but at some point it would be interesting to go back and look.

Tonight we address tomorrow.

The moon is in Libra. The sign of relationships. Think about those around you today. What are the lessons they are there to teach you. Listen to them wisely. Because they have all come to give you a gift. And many who you don’t think are friends. Have also come to you to help you. Try to take the smaller piece when you share today. Libra is the sign of balance. The second sign ruled by Venus. It is very socially aware and believes in justice. So you may find yourself moved today by something you see as unfair.

In the afternoon the moon sextiles Saturn. This planet is going backward. It is in the sign of the archer. From this sign we get a flood of ideas. But without the normal Sagittarius energy. The energy is more internal. This matches well with the moon today. While we find our ideas grand. Many would rather not hear them. It is easier to listen to others. When we are not busy pushing our own thoughts.

At the end of the day the moon will square Pluto. The small planet at the edge. It is still in the sign Capricorn. And it is also moving backward. This takes the energy into ourselves. It turns it from the world and on to our own thoughts. Beware of using your friends to get ahead today. Since this is a square it slows our progress. It isn’t a smooth flow of energy. We are challenged to work with and listen. Many who disagree are sent to teach us lessons. Keep your eyes on your goals today. And while the inner goals will be strong. Do not forget your outer goals. But too strong of a focus on goals is where we fall. Our friends are sent to help, and they may be a part of our path. But they are not stones to be tread upon.

Moon for May, 14

We made it through Friday the 13th. Well, if you are reading this you made it. Now from Saturday the 14th. I should start a thing about the evil of Saturday the 14th. The day you have to recover from the 13th.

The moon is in Virgo. The sign of thought. Take apart things and look at them. It is an earth sign ruled by Mercury. So it is stable and slow. But thoughtful and cerebral. There are times we can become too introspective. We fall into our minds. Sylvia Plath once asked, is there no way out of the mind? Today take a moment, but just a moment for thought. Meditation should come easy, do it. We should do it every day.

In the morning is a square with Mars and the moon. While we find security today in thought. Mars is pulling us to action from Sagittarius. Follow a big idea is compels us. Then another and another. There are so many ideas, so many to follow. But they are just ideas, and many of them are whimsical at best. We need to dream. But the arrow of Sagittarius gets lost in the clouds. Find the best ideas and put some thought into these. You don’t need to rush into action today. Plan, plan, plan.

For most of the day the moon is unbound. Expect a lot of restless and vague emotional energy. Understand many things won’t be serious today. And much will take place with little result.

At the end of the day the moon will oppose Neptune. The watery planet pulls us from our mind. Or it may just be pulling us to another part of our mind. From an emotional center to a creative center. These two planets are a like in many ways. But while the Virgo moon pulls us into our mind. Neptune in Pisces is trying to take us some place deeper. Our hearts.

At the end of the day, just breathe. Remember only love is real. All our thoughts and dreams are love. Or they are not real at all.

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.
