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.

Moon for May 1

Happy May Day. The first day of May is an old holiday. It celebrates spring. Dancing around the May Pole is a part of this Pagan day.

Early in the morning the moon moves into Pisces. We start to feel a strong bond with the past. We may think of family members. Some who have already passed on. But it is also a day when tradition is key. The moon enters Pisces the sign of the next world. As the end of the horoscope it represents entering a new phase. Our emotions may go through key changes. Pisces is the most spiritual of all the signs.

Also in the morning the sun and Neptune line up. A sextile with the sun in Taurus. Neptune is in Pisces. This is an easy aspect. And the two planets flow together. We seek stable footing. And we find this in deep truth. At the core of being we are one. What could be more stable. What  we are we are, and we will always be, forever. This is a needed truth today. And Neptune in Pisces brings it home. It touches our core. This calms our insecurity if we honestly embrace the truth.

Later in the morning is a second sextile. This one between Venus and the moon. The moon meets up with Venus in Taurus. As the ruling planet of Taurus it is strong. This aspect matches the previous. Our emotions are looking for something deep. And something true, a feeling of who we are in our hearts. Venus will bring a value shift. We may be drawn to safety. Comfort is a value for our hearts today. Today is a day for just being. Our feelings may feel shallow. But they are real. This is not a day for conflict.

The last aspect of the day is a square. Mars will square the moon in the evening. Mars is sitting in the sign of Sagittarius. The thinker doubts our feelings as the day passes. There is a part of us which doesn’t believe we are all the same. Maybe it is the ego. Maybe it is something else. Coming from Sagittarius it puts faith in passion. In an energy self directed and strong. The archer aims for the heavens as an opponent. But heaven is our home. Our feelings may not feel real. This comes from the moon in Pisces. Mars is about self. It stands out in the world. In Sagittarius its ideas are of its own largeness. Not of its connection to all things. This may make give us the feeling of unrest. Self-control becomes more important as the day passes.

Moon for April 27

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.

Moon for April 25

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.

Moon for Sunday, April 17

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.

Moon for April 12, Tuesday

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.
