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.
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.
It is Wednesday and the moon is in Capricorn. And our dreams still call. Many are going to be restless. Today might feel like a day to move. To reach for a goal. Almost any goal can make you feel better. If you dream it, you can do it. But find the little goals on the way to the big goals. Plan out your goals.
Early in the day the sun trines the moon. This is a good flow of energy. The sun is our ego. And the moon our soul. We have a unity of purpose. Both our outward and inward selves. While the moon is in Capricorn. The sun is currently in Taurus. This sign is about comfort. But also about possessions. This will prompt a search for the stable path. The path where we can move safely. In comfort and we don’t have to give up too much. But this can also be a path which prevents our growth.
In the afternoon a sextile between the moon and Neptune. This deep planet pulls away from surface concerns. And takes us to problems we all share. How can we achieve our goals. And help others at the same time. How can we find comfort, but also create comfort. But also how can we work as a team. Maybe there are people around us who can assist us in our goals. We do not have to dream alone. Think about allies today. Neptune is in Pisces. Don’t have a narrow view of how others can help you.
The last aspect of the day is with Jupiter. It will trine with the moon from the sign of Virgo. Currently moving retrograde. The message about Jupiter in Virgo is about service to others. About meeting our own internal needs. Through meeting the needs of others. And with the planet being retrograde. This is a message a lot of us will take to heart. Capricorn moon still strives for the best. But there are many ways of being the best. Sometimes the best for ourselves is the best for others as well. Often the best for others is the best for us.
Do good work today. There is a lot of earth energy today. Stay grounded, but remember to dream.
The moon is in Sagittarius. The thinker. Big ideas may be a part of our lives today. Take a moment for the big picture. But the sign of Sagittarius is the arrow. This is the ideas we send out into the world. But some of these ideas are too lofty. They float away and do not mean anything. Ruled by the planet Jupiter. There is a feeling of optimism. Jupiter was the king of the gods. And it is the largest of the planets.
Early in the day the moon will square Neptune. With Neptune in Pisces. It may be a hard day to stay grounded. If you feel lost come back to your breath. While the moon sits next to the thinker. Neptune will be digging deep. And finding uneasy truths. These will challenge the optimism of our mood today. Our world may not feel as sound today. And we may mis-read messages from others. We can think our way out of these problems for only so long.
Next the moon will square Jupiter. The ruler of Sagittarius is in Virgo. This grounded sign helps us to focus. We need to be more than dreamers. We need to be doers and plan making is key. Virgo will take all our grand ideas and focus us on the good ones. Then help us to reach those ideas. The nature of Virgo will focus more on ideas serving others. But this square has a dark side as well. We can come to rely too much on our plans. We can come to trust too much in things going by the plan. And feeling lost when changes are needed.
Lastly in the afternoon the moon aligns with Saturn. Together in Sagittarius. This will help us to be more grounded. And to limit our imaginations. While it can be good and right to dream big. Our dreams have no value until we can make them real. Saturn was the god of time. But also of the law. We need to think about physical limits. We may want to run a marathon. And this is a grand dream. But we can’t run a marathon tomorrow if we have not practiced. We need planning. But Saturn could also cause us to overwork today. This comes from a failure to let things go. We see the needed hard work to make something happen. And we commit to making it real. At any cost to ourselves.
Today could be an emotionally insecure day for many. Find your breath as often as you can. Stay focused on what you value. Keep your own limits in mind. And know no person can accomplish everything. Try to be easy and gentle with yourself today. You may need extra emotional space.
Sunday is a day of rest. The Virgo moon will focus us on service. This is a time to look beyond ourselves. How do our actions help or harm others. There is a feeling of stability. And we may be too skeptical today. Early in the morning Mercury and Pluto meet. They form a trine. The mental mercury is in Taurus. While Pluto rests in Capricorn. With these two earth signs we can focus. Sit down and think about the future. Mercury is also the ruler of Virgo. Another earth sign. A theme of today is going to be stability. But with Capricorn we think of the future. Find a moment of peace in the present. Then we can think about what comes next. Sunday is a traditional day of rest. And for many this will be true today. If it isn’t. Find as much time in your day to rest. The future doesn’t have to be like the present. We can plan and it doesn’t have to be unstable. Mars goes retrograde this morning. This encourages our inner focus. In the sign of Sagittarius this planet turns its focus. Our energy turns inward. We turn from taking over the world. To taking over our own lives. And Sagittarius is full of ideas about what we need. The sun is currently in Aries – ruled by Mars. And Mars next squares the moon. Today may be a struggle for action. And a struggle for peace. But proper peace creates proper action. We don’t have to choose. There is a time for each. And each has its time today. But in this square the moon is stronger. This gives it a stronger pull. In the afternoon there is an opposition with the moon and Neptune. The watery planet of connection is in Pisces. This adds a spiritual tone. But it also tempts us not to plan. If we take the time to listen. There are great teachers all around us. There is an old saying. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Be ready today. In our moments of peace today. Don’t just listen to your head. Your soul has its own message. Seek for the truth beyond yourself. For a good beyond yourself. The last of the day is with Jupiter. The giant planet is also in Virgo. This creates an internal stress. And we should be cautious. As the day turns to night we grow more hopeful. But like Jewel said in a great song. There is a difference between dreaming and pretending. Be aware. The stress is planning for the future. When we feel ready to leap right now. But not is not the right moment for most of us.
It is late and I want to rush through this tonight. Wednesday is an active day. The moon stays in Cancer. Which means we should keep our hearts at home. Yes, most of us can’t stay home. The other trick is taking a piece of home with us today. A photo, a snack, anything to remind you. Today is the first quarter moon. We are halfway from the new moon in Aries to the full moon. The full moon is in Virgo. Take a moment to see where you are on this path. Moving away from your self. Taking in others and service. But we could use the fire of Aries. And the focus of Virgo. In the morning the moon sextiles Jupiter. The planet Jupiter is already in Virgo. Today it is pulling you towards your goals. It is helping to open your heart to the world. We are made of love. And only love is real. When you really know this to be true. You can’t close yourself off from others. Today Jupiter with its hope and graciousness cracks the door open. Soon there is an opposition between the moon and Pluto. We have deep fears in our lives. We all have these deep fears. If you walk around the world and see someone who looks fearless. Just know they are hiding it deep. Pluto speaks to these common fears. Because it is a planet which binds us together. And our real power comes this unity. Our emotions may struggle against the effort. But be open today. Pluto is in Capricorn. And brings a drive to your focus today. Next is an aspect with the moon and Neptune. They square around the middle of the day. Uranus is in Aries. This could help us snap out of our homes. A Cancer would always rather stay home. But Aries wants action. The planet Uranus opens us. It pushes us to go beyond our limits. Today the first limit is the front door. Then it moves outward from there the rest of the day. Keep going beyond. It may not feel emotionally safe. But it will be a path of growth. The comfort will come back to you later. But the moment of potential will never return. The last aspect of the sun and moon. This square is a challenge. We seek to find a way where we can be the same people at home. Then the same people in the world. How can we live a life being the same person in all areas. Of course we have different styles and tones. But, we should remain at the core of our being the same. Maybe the person is there and just needs to be found. This square creates a moment for you to think about this question.
It is Friday and the moon is in Taurus. The moon in Taurus seems comfort. While some may view the sign of Taurus as being lazy. The truth is much deeper. The bull has a deep awareness. She knows when to take action and when to rest. Our emotions will likely get a much needed rest today. This is a day for sitting under a tree. And don’t under-estimate the value of sitting under a tree. It worked for the Buddha. In this space we may feel our hearts open. The truth is only love is real. And it is always with us. But sometimes we need to slow down to see the truth. And you may feel determined today. But don’t get stuck in your own vision. There are other trees in the field. Other bulls view the same world differently. In the morning the moon in conjunct Mercury. I am learning more about this aspect. It is like an opposition. But the energy is inside. We face a crisis with these two planets. They are both restless. Taurus calms them to a degree. But Mercury seeks security in ideas. While the moon finds it in emotions. We can overthink our emotions. But we can also get washed away in feeling. Conflict may be the end result in each case. If a different view is seen as a threat. If you find the value of feelings and ideas you are on the right path. In the afternoon we have a sextile with Neptune. This deep planet is in Pisces. Like Taurus it sees a deeper truth. Today we may be seeking a meaning. A deep value to life. If we listen to others and share with an open heart we will be rewarded. But insisting on our own views will cause problems. You may feel creative today. Listen to your heart. It will be sensitive if you are open. But some may feel this as a sign of weakness. At last the moon trines Jupiter. This giant is in Virgo. This is where you come together with others. You share and learn, and want to teach. There may be a path towards teaching for you today. The trine creates optimism. And confidence you will need.
Today the moon is in Pisces. The sign of the fish. This last sign of the zodiac is the most connected to the next world. And we may feel deeper as the moon moves through this sign. It is a Monday. But it should be an easy day. Pisces will smooth the edges, calm us. In the afternoon the moon squares Mars. We feel an impulse against our core. This is always a hard question. Are we resistant to change. Or is there a real warning of which we should be aware. Take a moment to feel what is right. If you calm yourself and breathe. The path will become clearer. But Mars in Sagittarius won’t make it easy. Next Neptune lines up with the moon. This pulls us deeper into our inner space. A space where we are at once more connected, and yet more aware of ourselves. Neptune also in Pisces will call on us to dream. And it may be an impulse to follow a dream which catches us off-guard. Following our dreams is why we are here. But it takes wisdom to know when the moment is right. Late in the day Jupiter will oppose the moon. It is in the sign of the ever practical Virgo. This is where we plan how to reach our dream. We don’t dash out without our shoes. We lace up, we prepare, we step forth boldly. A failure to plan can be a sign of fear as much as over planning. Either it can be a form of self-sabotage. Or we could be expecting failure, so don’t plan for success. Dream and plan today. Tomorrow planets are moving around.
Today is the full moon. Two weeks ago we set plans in motion. Today some of those plans are showing fruit. But also plans we’ve had in the works for a long time. The full moon is in Libra. A sign about relationships. How we relate to the people around us. Not just the closest. But everyone around us. This means friends, co-workers, roommates. And yes lovers. Now is a time to think about how these bonds help you. Or hurt you. Do they create growth for you? Are you helping others grow? If the answer is no, then maybe it is time to let some of them go.
Early in the morning is a square with Saturn and Jupiter. Saturn is in the fire sign Sagittarius. And Jupiter in the earth sign Virgo. Our foundations right now might be just ideas. When we interact with the world do we live our ideas. The things we tell ourselves we believe. Do they show up in our service to others. And I use the word service in a broad way. Friendship can be a form of service. If we use it to enrich the other person. Virgo is about this service. About the practical of daily life. This is where Jupiter is pulling us. The large planet wants us to open our hearts. To put into action our words. But Sagittarius is the sign of lofty ideas. The person who imagines a perfect world. But does little to improve the world around them.
Next to come into play is Mercury. Sitting in Aries it will oppose the moon. While our emotions may be open to others. Our mind is focused on ourselves. There is an impulse to improve who we are as people. And this is good. But we can’t grow alone. Connecting to others and the full moon energy is important. Set your sights on being a strong you. So you have the best of yourself to give. This is always a balance. Finding time to nurture you. But also to be there for others.
Another balance is between the sun and moon. The sun also in Aries activates our ego. Later in the day the sun and Mercury align. This adds to a feeling of self first. Our egos may be telling us we don’t need other people today. The lunar eclipse could be a metaphor for this energy. The ego would block out our emotions. While the ego can thrive on its own. We need others for rich emotions. And others need what we have to share. The sun is about our passion. What drives us day to day in life. We need to honor this force. Right now it is in Aries. A sign about going it alone. And there are many parts of the path we do take alone. But we can remain connected to the whole.
A sextile with the moon and Mars occurs mid-morning. Mars acting in the sign of Sagittarius. This pulls us towards ideas. Living in the ideal world in our mind is easy. Mars is the ruler of Aries. And this gives the sun courage. We need these ideas in the world badly. Having Mars in this sign can help us express them. Mars is the warrior. The campaigner. The passionate believer. Use this energy to take ideas from your mind to the world. The world needs these ideas in the world. Not in our heads. Be change, express change, live change.
Early afternoon the sun and Mercury align. These two work together to focus our minds. To bring our passion and our thoughts together. Mercury is the planet of communication. So it may be a good day for sharing your ideas with others. A good day for planning. But it is also a good day for learning. Gaining some knowledge. This can give your passion a good base. Take time to think about new ideas. Find new ways to express your goals. To achieve your dreams. Today is a good day.
Monday is a busy day. It is the second day of the sun in Aries. Time to tap into the energy of spring. Life is growing around you. Be a part of this energy. It is waiting for you to take it and use it. Waiting for you to grow. The moon remains in Virgo. Remember when you grow, let the world grow too. The true path of enrichment is for all. Virgo brings our emotions into the real world today. They are grounded. And put to the service of others. Early morning is an opposition with the moon. Neptune in Pisces encourage us to dream. Look with your heart it asks. Take stock of the flow of the universe. Don’t hold to tight to what is real. For the real changes. It is better sometimes to bend like bamboo. Than to break like an oak. We need to think beyond the numbers. But to take planning with us on the path. We have to let go, but also hold on. Later in the morning Venus is opposite the moon. Our values pull us to serve others. Venus shows where we find our passion. It shoes what we value. Pisces draws our focus to passing moments. Value time and the moment. Value things which last like love. Again this is a pull away from mental Virgo. In the afternoon Mercury enters Aries. Right behind the sun, our minds became restless. Thoughts might race. A new idea could send us on a new adventure. This is where we need to be grounded. Don’t run out the door un-prepared. Later is a moon square with Saturn. The Sagittarian Saturn places limits in our path. But they are not there to harm us. They serve to make us stronger. If we use them right. They serve to guide if we listen. And sometimes they are meant to be broken. Understanding the role of limits is important. Many get lost and defeated by their best chance of success. Coming along next is Jupiter conjunct the moon. Together with the Aries moon. These two can build on their energy. Courage is the result of believing in your path. And this makes it easier to believe. The last aspect of the day is Pluto. A trine with the moon makes change easier tonight. Pluto in Capricorn wants you to grow. It offers you its own power. Use it wisely to go deeper. Pluto is the ruler of the under-world. Let him take the parts of yourself which are no longer of use.
