Moon for Sunday, April 3

The last day of the Aquarius moon. Late in the day is a short void of course period. There is little activity with the moon today. As the moon moves into Pisces we feel more. We are moving out of our minds. And into something beyond our mind. This is a space we access with out heart. But not our heart alone. It is a space of awareness. This means we need our head as well. Having our head clear will keep us grounded. A sextile early in the day with the moon and Uranus Gets our hearts racing. We find something new in our lives maybe. Or something old we see in a new light. Uranus is in Aries. Which rules the head. This keeps us from falling completely. But it can also hold us back from the full experience. Later the moon sextiles Mercury. The small planet sticks close to the sun. And is in the sign Aries. Our minds are with our hearts today. Take a moment to think about your emotional needs. Give it space in your head. But this helps us keep our minds aware. We balance our emotions with our thoughts. Air is the symbol of the mind. Air gives us a distance and perspective. But this distance can keep us from being in our hearts. Water is the element for emotion. It nourishes us. But it can also wash us away. We can sink into our emotions.

Moon for April Fool’s Day

Today is April Fool’s Day. You will all receive wealth. If you are not in love. You will fall in love. All your dreams will come true. Ohh, sorry – April Fool’s. If only life could be so easy. The moon is void of course much of the day. A good day to play tricks on friends. Chances are there will not be lasting results. The moon today is in Aquarius. This is a great sign for April Fool’s Day. It thinks outside the box. So it seeds ideas for pranks in our minds today. I told my roommate I got a check from the government for $1,000. Pretty boring, but he fell for it. I did get a small check back from my taxes. The sign of Aquarius is about our connection to others. We can use a feeling of connection to inspire our pranks. But also to remember not to hurt people. We want people to laugh. Not to cry. Early in the morning the moon squares Uranus. The ruler of Aquarius. This adds to its power. This planet encourages unique thoughts. Don’t pull the easy pranks like I did with my roommate. Go for the gusto. The square will make it harder for you to invest in a plain prank. But this pulls your heart in and reminds you to be careful. Uranus is currently in Aries. This adds to a feeling of impulse when a good idea comes along. Remember to think first. Which will be hard because Mercury is square the moon also today. Also in Aries this means your mind may over look what your heart is telling you about what is right. Take a moment and breathe today. Take a moment to listen to your heart. Then have your fun. The final aspect of the day is Venus and the moon. This brings your friends into the party. Your friends can either help you by pointing out how a trick might be mean. Or they could serve to pressure you to not listen to your own concern. With Venus in Pisces it is more likely your friends will support you doing what is right. Either way it is best to bring more friends in on the fun. Just stay centered. If no one else is going to be the voice of caution. You can be the one. Have fun.

Full Moon

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.

Moon for March 21

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.

Moon for St. Patrick’s Day

There is a lot of action on Thursday. The moon is in Cancer. Early in the morning it forms a sextile with Jupiter. The giant is in Virgo. This makes a good time for cleaning around the house. Doing small chores can lift your mood. Soon after the moon meets with Pluto. The moon opposes Pluto. The far planet is in Capricorn. This will counter your desire to stay at home. A restless energy may pull on you. But your emotions call you home. If you go out today, don’t go for long. Later in the morning the moon squares Uranus. Rolling through the sign of Aries. While you may have a restless pulse. Your energy level may be low today. And time at home may be what you need most. Mercury trines the moon next. This brings a clear mental energy. Mercury in the sign of Pisces calms the mind. Rest, reflect and be in your own space today. The final aspect is the sun and moon. They trine late night. The sun traveling through Pisces. The day may end on an emotional note. If we have spent the day resting we are ready. Today is a healing day. Tonight the moon goes void of course.

Moon for March 12

Today Venus moves into Pisces. Where is joins the sun. Mercury is also in Pisces. Start to look beyond what you value. Think of what lays under the skin. They say beauty is only skin deep. Explore what you value at a deeper level. Do you value friendship? Do you value love? And how do you live these values? Remember, beyond the surface. The moon is in Taurus today. This earth sign grounds us in what is real. It takes us into our voice. Patience it tells us, wait and watch. Our emotions are going to help us dig deep. Early morning the moon sextiles Neptune. This planet is also in Pisces. This is a moment to release an image which isn’t serving you. Think about what will be of service to the world. Or least those you love around you. Later in the morning the moon has a meeting with Mercury. A sextile in Pisces. This will bring your mind into the game. New ideas can be found for new values. And we begin to understand how old images are not enough. After noon Pluto will be in trine with the moon. Still in Capricorn. This planet will tap a deep need in you. You feel pulled to a greater cause. A greater love. And you know you are not living values which take you to this love. At the end of the day comes hope. But a trine with Jupiter and the moon could be too much hope. Stay grounded. The planet Jupiter is in Virgo. Staying grounded can be easier if we think of others. How does our vision help others? How does our love serve others? Remember only love is real.

Moon for March 10

The moon is in Aries. And you probably want to get moving. I know I do. This restless sign is full of energy. The warrior and the leader are children of the sign. Keep active today. Around the middle of the day the moon trines Saturn. Which is in Sagittarius. We get some guidance from limits today. If we choose to listen. Like all things we have a choice. And often we choose to ignore boundaries. Today the limits aren’t there to hurt us. But we can gain focus from them. Aries is a sign which could us focus. Next the moon squares Pluto. The planet puts a block in the path. We can move around it. Or stop and use it. This square with the planet in Capricorn asks us about our goal. What are we aiming at beyond the next step? In the evening the moon conjuncts Uranus. With thoughts of limits and long term goals in mind. We start to think outside the box. We have to imagine a path we have never walked. If we want to go to a place we have never been. When Mercury conjuncts Neptune this gets deeper. These two planets are in Pisces. They work together to release old thought patterns. We think the same way, we go the same way. But we want something new. If you are open tonight it may be easier to find the new path. Easier to imagine the path you’ve never walked before. Remember only love is real.

Moon for March 5

Today is a day of change.

The moon goes void of course early. The last aspect is a sextile between Mars and the moon. This gives an emotional hint of what is to come today. Mars is still in Scorpio. And is it stirring deep feelings. It is tempting to look to the past. But be in the moment.

In the morning hours Mercury moves into Pisces. This dreamy sign doesn’t boost Mercury. Take a moment to still your mind. You may find it harder to focus on business. But the urge to create comes out of no where. If you can spend some time alone with your mind. Some time to give it the break it needs. You will be able to focus better. But while Mercury moves through the sign of the fish your mind isn’t going to be as clear. If we can relax we may gain insight or see new points of view. We may even learn how to communicate in a new way.

Later in the day Mars enter Sagittarius. This brings lofty ideas into our hearts. This is a political time of year. And many may feel this as a pull to get involved in the process. This can be donating money. Or it can be reaching out to voters. But it could be anything you may have a passion for now. Mars is the ruler of the heart. And the god of war. A hot tempered fool at times. But never one to step aside when things get tough. Find the leader inside you. We all have this skill to some degree. Find your vision and find a creative way to serve.

In addition to other changes the moon enters Aquarius. This sign of quick thought may push your emotions aside. This can be easier for those who feel their minds are slowed by Pisces. But our emotions serve a purpose and need to be understood. They take time and sometimes Aquarius can be in a rush. What we need is the different point of view of Aquarius. Use this side of the sign to understand your emotions in a new way.

Late in the day Saturn will square the sun. If we are moving towards our passion. Or if we are finding a creative outlet. We will need to be aware of our limits. Don’t let what we think we can’t do hold us back. But over reaching can result in a wounded pride. Our ego feels restricted by this square. So it may need more coaching than normal. But at the same time, it will feel more wounded by failure. Saturn is in Sagittarius. This will help expand our vision of what is possible.

Moon for Feb. 28

This is being posted later today, sorry. And there is a lot to cover. The moon is in Scorpio today. A sign connected to death, and the other world. Scorpio rules over the end of the pagan year. It is a deeply internal sign. But also a passionate one. Today our emotions come from a deep place. We feel the power to change. We can change ourselves. And we can change our world. We may find a passion hiding deep inside. Early in the morning there is a conjunction. The sun and Neptune align. This boosts your creative energy. If you have found a new passion. Then you can use this to brainstorm ways to follow it. Neptune is also a deep connection. It is a place where we bond with each other. We find our voice. But a square between the moon and Venus could add a block. There is no good and no bad. We don’t feel social. And maybe we think differently about our values. Venus is in Aquarius. A sign which promotes thinking outside the box. Our new focus may demand new values. Or at least a change in old ones. Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio. And it forms a sextile with the moon early afternoon. This supports a deep change going on inside our hearts. This is really a day of change, if you allow it to be one. Pluto is the furthest planet – and spends the longest in each sign. It reflects changes we go through as a species, as a planet. And it enables us to make a change to create a better world. Pluto is in Capricorn. A sign which encourages us to play it big. Jupiter is next to the party. This jovial planet is sextile the moon. Expect optimism. But try to stay grounded. Jupiter can give you so much faith you over look important doubts. Or you fail to plan. Believe you can do anything, and then focus on how to get it done. Jupiter can make focus on details hard. The last aspect of the day is moon with Mercury. This square slows your thoughts. At the end of a day where so much has been changing. This can be healthy. We need to slow our minds. Take a moment to look back on the day. Reflect on any changes we made. Or maybe changes we didn’t make. Ask ourselves if we took the right path afterall. Because there is no going back. But tomorrow a new path awaits. Remember only love is real.

Moon for Feb. 26

There is a lot to cover for Friday. The moon first squares Pluto. This could bring mood swings. We feel a lack of flow today. There is a desire to express something deep. But it isn’t easy. And today it could be even harder. Take the time to think. To explore what you feel. Plan what you want to say. Tomorrow the moon will enter Scorpio. A sign which thrives on secrets. The next aspect is a trine with Mercury and the moon. This gives some common sense. We talk freely with those around us. The moon in Libra adds to our social feelings. And for some this will make it hard to not try to express deeper feelings. But today is not the day. This becomes more clear as Uranus opposes the moon. We become unmoored. Emotions could be changing fast. But mostly on the surface. Those who take their time will feel what is true. Those who don’t may get lost. And mislead others. The last aspect is with Uranus and Mercury. They form a sextile in the afternoon. Our minds are racing, If we can get down some of the ideas on paper we can come back to them. But don’t try to hold them too long today.
