Just after noon, Venus leaves her beloved Taurus and enters Gemini, where she is apt to play more freely, but be little less secure. This month is a good time to bring beauty (Venus) to words and ideas (Gemini). Be creative. Spend some time brainstorming. The Moon trines the Sun later, both in fire signs, bringing a nice boost of energy, which helps as Mercury conjoins Neptune later this evening. This could be great for deep Dreaming and imagination, but it may also be low energy. So this conflicting combination of aspects may help each other out.
The morning sees the Moon sextile Venus, which should be a pleasurable time, though with an impending feeling of change. At 2:26pm Luna enters Leo and will immediately oppose Saturn, and later Mars. Afternoon could see blocks and conflicts, especially about ideas. Just before midnight she squares Uranus, indicating possible reversals and surprises.
The Moon finishes her square to the Sun early today as she grows in light. This is a good time to prune a bit – leave behind what you don’t need so that you can focus on what’s more important for the rest of the lunar month. Luna will trine Mercury in Pisces this morning, and then Neptune later today. Work out communication goals early, and be ready to use forms that are less-than-obvious. Before dawn tomorrow the Moon opposes Jupiter and Pluto, so be careful that the overnight hours aren’t overly indulgent.
At 7:43am EDT the Moon enters her own home sign of Cancer. This could be a day of deep empathy, as she allows us to feel things more than usual. Just be careful not to wallow. In the afternoon, she sextiles Uranus, pointing to some possible surprises or reversals. The Moon squares the Sun at sunrise tomorrow, so overnight could see some tensions between emotions and outer goals.
The Moon’s only aspect today is the square to Neptune around midday EDT. Fantasy vs. reality could be the theme of the day, without a clear winner. Be careful of making plans that are too wild, since they may disintegrate by tomorrow. Try to keep it real. At 3:43pm Mars enters Aquarius, where he loses some focus, but is likely to make intellectual pursuits more probing and incisive for the next few weeks.
A slightly more relaxed day as the Moon in social Gemini flits free until late afternoon when she sextiles the Sun. There may be a strong urge to socialize that becomes a challenge during these stay-at-home days, especially as Luna squares Mercury later tonight.
In a recent blog post, I looked at timing using a technique called Firdaria. This technique breaks the life of a person into planetary periods. Each planet rules for a certain amount of time, and becomes more sensitized during that period. Included in that schema are the North and South Nodes of the Moon, which we’ll look at a bit more now. First of all, let’s get clear on what Nodes are. It’s a fairly simple concept, but one that isn’t always clear to folks. Each planet has an orbit around the Sun; from our perspective, it looks as if Read more…
A much more active day as the Moon trines Jupiter and Pluto as she conjoins Venus this morning. The first half of the day is excellent for artistic projects, relationships, and deep emotional work. In the afternoon, the Moon trines Mars, giving a boost of energy and focus. At 9:37 pm, Luna enters Gemini, where she trines Saturn and Pluto, offering more structure to growing plans and projects.
Today is a lovely, low-key day for most folks. The Taurus Moon won’t aspect anyone until she sextiles Neptune, just after midnight, making for possibly weird, but comfortable dreams. All day, Venus moves toward the trine to Jupiter, adding to the peace and good feelings of the day. It’s a good time to make up with someone or to bring peace to a previously troubled situation.
The Moon enters Taurus at 9:36 this morning, and squares Saturn on the way. Emotional frustrations may abound, but try to take legit criticism if offered. Later Luna crosses Uranus, making the afternoon a time of emotional reversals that may not be welcome. Overnight, she sextiles Mercury, which should making dreaming interesting, if not downright weird.
