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.
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.
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.
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.
Welcome to Thursday. I hope you like it slow. The big news for the day is Mercury. It goes retrograde in Taurus. This means we need to give yourselves time for thought. Be easy on yourself. And others. Things are going to take longer today. And it may be harder to understand. Taurus is a slow sign. It is connected to the body. Ground yourself in your body today for calm.
The moon is still in Capricorn. The final day. If you’ve been working on goals for the last few days. Give it an extra push today. The Capricorn moon will help you focus. Will give you drive. And with good focus and will should come some success.
The moon and Pluto are in alignment. These two bodies are natural friends. But where the moon is our emotion. Pluto taps into deeper energy. There is a power we feel in our hearts today. It is through our emotions we can find a connection. Go into you heart, there is only one heart. Only love is real. And we are all made out of this love. When things are slow today. Or people don’t understand. Breathe and remember love.
Next the moon will square Uranus. This odd ball planet is testing us today. It is going to pull us towards one goal. A goal for us alone. The greatest gift you can give the universe. It is your own enlightenment. Do it. Uranus is pulling you to your own path today. And this is key. It is easy to fall off our path when helping others. We root for them at first. Then help them get up. And carry them for a little. Soon we walk their path instead of our own. If we are not careful. But Uranus tells us today, be unique. Remember you have a path only you can walk. And you cannot really walk another’s.
Late in the day Mercury will trine the moon. While what we want to say doesn’t come out. If we can find a way to send a heart message. it will be loud and clear. Give a friend a hug, a lover a kiss. A child a handshake. Even a thumbs-up can send a clear message. On a day when words are not easy.
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.
The moon is in Leo today. An artistic and sometimes showy sign. Ruled by the sun it gives us energy. And it may give us some hope. If we allow ourselves to believe in ourselves. We may find strength today. We can see ourselves as the kings of our own lives. The image of the king is an important part of Leo. Ruled by the sun the king of the sky. We can either feel at the center of our own lives. Or try to push to be at the center of other people’s lives. Those who are more secure don’t need to be the center of attention. The artist seeks to create from their own heart. We need to be emotionally self creative beings today.
The first aspect of the day is Venus and the moon. The moon in Leo trines Venus. The planet Venus is in Aries. And this brings creative force to the day. Many people are likely to feel restless. Today is a great day to take creative steps in your life. Believe in yourself. And then do good for yourself. Aries wants to take charge. And with the Leo moon everyone may want to lead the group. Be patient with others and try to take a back seat. Look beyond the events of the day at the long term. All day long the sun rules the sky. But the most amazing sight might be a sky full of stars. This aspect should keep our emotions in balance. And our outlook easy going.
Later in the day Mercury will square the moon. The aspect of the square slows the flow. Like a stop sign along the road. Mercury is sitting in the sign of Taurus. On a day full of energy our minds are moving slow. While our hearts may be racing. We need to allow extra time to think about the next step. This mental check can serve to prevent rash actions. But it could also hold us back. The bold and the brave will not be easy. Taurus is a sign centered more on self awareness. And this will take some of the impulse away from Leo. And slow pace of Aries. This adds to the restless energy of the day. Communication may be hard for some. There is an alertness due to this aspect. Sleep may be hard for some.
Saturn and the moon dance next. They trine with Saturn in Sagittarius. The cold of Saturn can help us today. It works smoothly with the moon. Trine energy flows easy. And this is the third fire sign in play today. With so much energy buzzing with Leo and Aries. If we aren’t careful the fire energy from Saturn could push us too far. We need to use this planet to focus. Saturn was the king of the gods. But is also the ruler Karma. This puts into play the results of our actions. Not just on ourselves but others. From the sign of Sagittarius we get a larger view of the world. And this view may slow our impulses. The grand ideas of early in the day should be put aside. Write them on a piece of paper. Then wait until the heat of the day has passed. In the cool of the evening use the big view. Think about these ideas and what they mean in the long term. The key to today is being responsible.
At the end of the day is a trine with the moon and Uranus. This odd-ball planet is in Aries. There is a paradox today. Where going with the crowd may feel like the rebel path. With the Leo moon seeking attention. Uranus in Aries pushes us to stand out. This could increase the desire for some to be at the center of the group. A true leader follows the heart. Then helps others find the way. A populist tries to get ahead of the crowd. To use and control the energy of the masses. Be the leader today. The choice could be easy to make either way. And in some cases too easy. This is also yet another fire sign. Today will feel restless and many may rest better when it is over. Be careful of change for the sake of change.
There is a busy astrology day ahead. Lets start with the moon. It is in Cancer. If you can stay home today. It would be the best idea. But if you go out take a piece of home with you. Take something which will make you feel comfortable. Make a snack at home and take it to work.
Early in the day Mercury sextiles Neptune. Mercury is in Taurus. And Neptune is in Pisces. If you pay attention and listen. Today will bring you insight on people around you. Open your heart. The combination of Mercury and Neptune spark your mind. You are able to see between the words. And find those connections. The energy of Pisces helps tap into a the spirit. Our hearts are likely to feel more open. And the walls between us lower. The energy of Taurus is healing. We may feel like being a bit of a mother today. Being able to understand others is a blessing.
Next Venus trines Mars. They are both in fire signs. And will turn up the level of energy. Venus is in Aries so we may feel like taking charge. If we’ve been on the fence with someone. Maybe a relationship you’ve wanted to take to the next step. Today is the day to make your move. Aries is so restless and bold. While Venus is the planet of relationships. But it is also about our values. Hold close to your values in what you choose to do. And who you choose to be with in your life. Today may be the moment you see how something in your life isn’t supporting your values. And you know it has to end. Endings are just the other side of beginnings. And Mars in Sagittarius. It will fill your head with the loftiest ideas. Many are good. Many are bad. Many will float away into the ether. Focus may be the biggest challenge. Then finding a way to be grounded. And yet open to the storm of new ideas. Showing affection may come easy today.
The moon comes back into play next. It squares Venus. This will put a bit of a check on our social lives. Our heart will slow the impulses which could push us too far, too fast. If we listen to our hearts. But Venus in Aries will be hard to ignore. The Cancer moon will try to talk us into something comfortable. But this also could be a danger. We too often choose the comfort. And at the cost of the growth we need. You need to look at your values today. And understand how you feel about yourself. How you feel about the world. Your emotions may push you to change your values. Or your values could cause a change in emotions. Maybe a bit of both. Our open hearts feel comfortable stepping out. But we feel insecure at the same time. Be honest with yourself.
Neptune plays a role again next. It trines the moon late in the morning. Neptune is in Pisces. And it is bringing dreams. Our hearts are feeling insecure. And we may find it easy to imagine danger. If you watch the news it isn’t hard. If you watch romance movies. It isn’t hard. At a real level we are all one. And there is a lot of sadness in our body. I think this connection makes us feel this sadness. And it makes us feel uneasy. How we understand it is key. How we express it even more important. The value comes in how we react. Or do not react. If we take the time we can imagine beauty in the world as well. And the world needs more beauty. So take the time.
At the end of the day is an aspect with the moon and Mercury. This sextile ends the day on a note of unsure thoughts. Mercury is passing through Taurus. We don’t want to change our minds quickly today. Our minds might find our hearts unstable. But part of this is the mind not paying attention. The heart is changing its tone. But it beats out the same message everyday. It wants love. If we fail to take the time to listen. We feel our hearts are not to be trusted. But take a moment to open your mind to your heart. Remember only love is real. With Mercury in Taurus it is a good time. Our minds are moving at a slower pace. A good time for a big picture to be understood. Our minds want to feel valued. And our hearts want to be understood. Take the time today.
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.
You ready for Tuesday. The second hardest day of the week. Well there is a lot to cover today. Starting early the moon goes void of course. This means we are rootless much of the day. Or route-less. It is the last day of the moon in Pisces. There is still a deep pull. Something beyond our awareness calls to us today. Take a moment to pause. Turn off the TV, and the radio. Put your phone away and just listen. Early in the morning the moon squares Saturn. In the lofty sign of Sagittarius. Our emotions are often less than ideal. And this means some people just don’t listen. Others pretend they are not there at all. But they are real and trying to tell us something. We can listen to our feelings. Even when they feel wrong. Take the message and leave the rest. Next is a sextile between Pluto and the moon. The small planet is in the sign of the goat. And this Capricorn can create a drive in us. This drive man make the path of not listening to our hearts easier. It can even feel like the right choice. But true power comes from our hearts. The messages of the heart can be hard. But today while the moon is void of course is a good time to listen. Pluto gives us the power to transform. Even when it comes to our “bad feelings.” All as a result of listening. At the end of the morning the sun trines Saturn. We feel a need to be practical. Maybe we feel under stress. This causes us to resist softer feelings. We need to be strong. Or we need to feel strong at least. And listening can feel weak. But it isn’t. The trine is between fire signs. So it is full of passion and movement. As the day moves along we get pulled more and more by restless energy. Wake up early in the morning for the best time to find grounding. When Venus moves into Aries new things may be waiting. Or a new value for something old in our lives. This could be an old friendship we see in a new light. Or it could be a new person in our lives. There is likely to be a hint of passion. Venus doesn’t do large gestures. But Aries is a sign of passion. Next Mercury enters Taurus. The sign of the bull. While our heart is beating faster. Our minds may be slowing. This brings our thoughts around to the sensual. And could lead us to follow a new passion. Our minds may just be to slow to keep our heart in check today. But remember to listen. Not just to the loud beats of the heart. But the quiet ones as well. Because not all passions are good. I hope today’s passion is positive for you. But it may result in damaging life choices. At the end of the day, the moon enters Aries.
