Long Void of Course from mid-morning until late evening. We’ll want to break free from the heavy Moon in Capricorn, but we remain focused on mundane affairs until late evening.
3:11am – Moon (Capricorn) sextile Venus (Scorpio) Early Sunday morning is sober and reflective.
9:51am – Moon (Capricorn) square Uranus (Aires) As we come to Moon square Uranus, the limiting energy of Capricorn becomes a burden and we feel a strong urge to break free. We avoid traditional obligations in favor of a much needed change to avoid stagnation. Void of Course begins.
11:33pm – Moon enters Aquarius. We’ll be looking for a change of scenery early next week. The plans you make today could change tomorrow. People are more outwardly friendly and uninhibited.
Magnificent Monday with great Moon in Aquarius aspects and Tuesday’s excellent forecast applies to Monday evening as well.
10:07am – Moon (Aquarius) trine Mercury (Libra). Love of freedom. Very intellectual. Love the air. Great for flying an airplane. This aspect in the birth chart of pilots. Great for enlightened conversation. Very congenial and friendly.
12:05pm – Moon (Aquarius) trine Jupiter (Libra) Emotions expand quickly and we just want to be with others and agree. Intellectual, friendly and agreeable.
10:28pm – Moon (Aquarius) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) We like everyone and see one another as reflections of ourselves. Willing to give others the space they need to be themselves. All Saturn trines and sextiles indicate the part of yourself that always seems within the norm, respectable and therefore appreciated by others.
The positive outlook for Tuesday is in effect on Monday evening as well. Very enlightening evening, perfect for any group activities, especially related to spiritual growth.
A great day for business with Mercury conjunct Jupiter and Mars sextile Neptune dissolves ego energies for a truly spiritual and enlightening day. Call it a terrific Tuesday.
2:46am – Mercury conjunct Jupiter (Libra) An abundance (Jupiter) of thoughts (Mercury) about relating (Libra). Very good for conversation, meetings, especially one to one communication. People are feeling lucky and generous towards others. A good time to interview for a job and talk about your achievements. Generally speaking, a very positive aspect that gives a broad view of life and a breathe of fresh air in the intellect. Interested in new ideas and what’s possible. Rigid or limited thinking is thrown out the window, at least for a day, as we realize some of the things we’ve been missing.
This aspect is particularly good in Libra as both planets do very well in this sign. This aspect will make everyone much more tolerant of different opinions. Rather than seen as a threat, new ideas will seem interesting and expanding. Jupiter paints with a broad brush, so today we are not interested in details as much as an idealistic view of the big picture. Able to perceive (Sagittarius says “I perceive”) with great ease, today is a good day for looking forward with optimism, making plans for the future, making connections and meeting new people. Aspect is particularly good for dealings with foreigners.
All matters related to business work out better today. A great day for business.
9:58am – Moon (Aquarius) trine Sun (Libra) Creative energy abounds. Very harmonious and feeling equal and connected to everyone.
10:04am – Mars (Capricorn) sextile Neptune (Pisces) The productive Mars in Capricorn is softened for a day as we are more concerned with helping others than getting ahead personally. We desire to assist others and show compassion for the less advantaged. However, we have a bit less physical energy as our ego dissolves into the collective. Neptune opens us up to the more subtle aspects of life, makes us feel more compassionate and willing to lend a helping hand.
Aspect is good for group activities as ego energies are lower than usual and folks are more tender and loving towards one another. Neptune is our connection to the collective and the sextile enables us to strike a balance between our ego needs and our need to feel part of the collective and the feeling of connectedness that it brings. It gives you an opportunity to take a more spiritual (Neptune) direction (Mars) in some matter and still maintain functionality (Capricorn).
Aspects opens you up to the subtle things that connect us all and gives us a desire to delve deep into things like esoteric studies. Aspect increases psychic abilities. Good for rock medicine. Charity work is favored as well.
Add this aspect to the previous and we have a really wonderful confluence of aspects that could bring about a truly enlightening and spiritual day. The positive, expansive energy of Mercury conjunct Jupiter coupled with the relaxed ego drive and spiritual nature of Mars sextile Neptune means we are open to spiritual unfoldment. Like a blossoming Lotus flower, today is a day of spiritual growth.
4:15pm – Moon (Aquarius) square Venus (Scorpio) Share your fears with a friend to help overcome them.
4:49pm – Moon (Aquarius) sextile Uranus (Aires) Interesting and unusual afternoon. Conversation with friends is exciting. Open to new ideas. A moment of spiritual evolution is upon us. Void of Course begins, continues until next morning.
Dreamy Wednesday with Moon conjunct Neptune in Pisces.
5:43am – Moon enters Pisces. Open to subtle impression in the mind. Trust your visions. Very sensitive, tender and compassionate.
10:16pm – Moon conjunct Neptune (Pisces) This month at 9d Pisces. Once again we feel a cosmic tickle on our bellybutton. Look at the house where it occurs in your chart. That’s where you’ll find the experience, in whatever activity is associated with that house. Be open to impressions and feeling connected to everyone.
We need an ego adjustment today with Mercury square Mars. Todays’ lesson is don’t be selfish and make some room for others in your life. Outward success is built on the trust of lasting relationships.
12:10am – Moon (Pisces) sextile Mars (Capricorn) Ego energies subside and induce a dreamy state.
3:19am – Moon (Pisces) square Saturn (Sagittarius) Feeling confused about your place in the world.
7:20am – Moon (Pisces) sextile Pluto (Capricorn) Increase in energy and feeling compassionate towards others.
2:00pm – Mercury (Libra) square Mars (Capricorn). This is the first of two Mercury squares to Capricorn this week. Communication (Mercury) faces a challenge (square) to exert control (Mars). The challenge is to maintain poise and character (Libra) while overcoming obstacles to building something that’s going to last.
Aspect increases energy. Also causes people to strongly identify with their ego and dominate the conversation. People are more sensitive (Libra) than usual and easy to take offense, so be careful what you say today. The problem arises when we express discontent without considering whether or not others want to hear it. It is easy to turn people off with an attitude of superiority (Capricorn) and make them want to turn away. Arguments can arise due to expressing feelings of inadequacy (Capricorn) and projecting them onto others, often a partner (Libra). Aspect makes people accident prone and brings up impulsive driving habits, so a strong driving caution today.
Use the energy of this aspect to build better one to one communication. Mars in Capricorn loves to build something to last and Mercury in Libra needs relationship, balance and harmony. If you restrain (square) your ego (Mars), you can learn to communicate (Mercury) better and build more successful relationships (Libra).
Better judgment with Mercury sextile Saturn and a fun Friday evening with Moon opposition Jupiter.
12:13am – Moon (Pisces) trine Venus (Scorpio) Void of Course begins.
8:08am – Moon enters Aires. Increases drive and energy. More confident and able to identify with our emotional needs.
11:47am – Mercury (Libra) sextile Saturn (Sagittarius) Communication (Mercury) slows down to apply better judgment (Saturn). Today we are more masterful (Saturn) in our dealings with others and more concerned with the practical aspects of life. Our communication is inspired (Sagittarius), more mature (Saturn) and without superficiality. We can discern better and see ways to adapt and take advantage of a situation.
Aspect is great for teaching and for learning. Sagittarius expands the intellect (Libra), we feel fraternity (sextile) with others. The mind is more receptive to things that will last and will help get ahead in life. So we are willing to put a lot of effort into building for a better future, and sometimes that means teaching and assisting others. Good for planning and taking stock of the future, updating your schedule and following through on communications.
Aspect makes people more likable (Saturn sextile or trine), more agreeable, more appreciative of other people’s views. Good for consulting an older or wiser person. Good for therapy. Good for relationships, partners want to discuss their relationship needs over the long run. Relationships that start today will withstand the test of time well.
8:34pm – Moon (Aires) opposition Jupiter (Libra) Get out in a crowd. There’s no better aspect for it. Aspect bring people together for abundant good feelings. Excellent for Friday evening activities.
Exciting and different Saturday with Sun opposition Uranus and very energetic with Mercury square Pluto. Lots of early Moon aspects make for an active morning. The Full Moon is loaded with powerful ego energies feeling repressed and ready to initiate transformation in our lives. Use caution on this Full Moon.
3:43am – Sun (Libra) opposition Uranus (Aires) This aspect compels us to balance (opposition) our will (Sun) with our higher mind (Uranus). Today we seek to reconcile the difference (opposition) between who we are (Sun) and what we believe we can be (Uranus). So it brings up lots of energy. It is so important to realize that the force of change that Uranus brings can have both very good and very bad effects, depending on each person’s process of spiritual evolution. If you embrace change, then you will be rewarded with new people in your life who feel the same way. If however, you resist change, then you will meet people who feel the same way as well. The former can be enlightening and bring a breathe of fresh air into your life. The latter can make you feel frustrated and bring up the 3 Furies: anger, resentment, and never-endingness.
If you feel the Furies today, it’s because you have been using your energy in the wrong way. Instead of using your higher mind to help you change and make progress in your life, you have been ignoring the prompting from higher self. It takes an enormous amount of energy to hold back the change that is needed in our lives. Doing so leads to frustration. Today, don’t react if you meet an unpleasant surprise. Instead change yourself.
On the positive side, this aspect brings new people into our lives that enlighten us and help us embrace change. Existing relationships are looking for a change of pace and new relationships that start today will require both partners to acknowledge the independence of the other. Recognize your need for independence and remember that others need the same. When you meet (opposition) aggressive (Aires) independent (Uranus) people, respond with diplomacy and tact (Libra). In this way you bring much needed balance (Libra) to our process of spiritual evolution (Uranus).
Today we realize that our evolution concerns other people and in fact it changes the way we perceive and interact with others. So today we have an opportunity to re-invent (Uranus) ourselves and become the friend (Uranus) to every one (Libra) we meet (opposition).
Uranus brings equality. The more equal you feel towards others today, the better your experiences will be. Challenge yourself to to see others and equals. Severe (Uranus) yourself from rigid and inhibited expressions of your ego (Aires) and instead put a smile on your face for everyone you meet. Force (Aires) yourself to be enlightening and friendly (Uranus) towards others. Pretend everyone is your friend today.
3:54am – Moon (Aires) square Mars (Capricorn) Energizes the emotions, can bring up a domineering drive that conflicts with your ego needs. Mars square Aires = ego adjustment. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Getting what you want comes with more responsibility. Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
4:46am – Moon (Aires) trine Saturn (Sagittarius) Easier to adjust the ego as we feel creative about sobriety and forgoing pleasure for future gain.
6:53am – Moon (Aires) opposition Mercury (Libra) We want to talk about our feelings. Can be confusing as we get a lot of subconscious impressions coloring our view.
8:19am – Moon (Aires) square Pluto (Capricorn) Energizes the emotions once again this morning and once again can bring up a domineering drive to succeed. Strong burst of energy to get you moving. Your deep motivation (Pluto) for success (Capricorn) shows in your face (Moon in Aires). You are willing to go it alone if necessary, but you need to consider the greater good (Pluto) in what you do.
7:28pm – Mercury (Libra) square Pluto (Capricorn) Communication (Mercury) faces a challenge (square) to exert control (Pluto), just like Mercury square Mars. The challenge is to maintain poise and character (Libra) while conveying something important, something that has collective value (Pluto) and building something to last that will also help your reputation. But is it really important to everyone concerned, or just you? You will need to answer that question for yourself today. That’s because the validity of what you say is called into question today, so you may need to defend yourself.
It’s a high energy aspect that could bring up a little insecurity and out of place behavior. Folks are a bit more impulsive and controlling (Pluto) which can lead to worry and pessimistic thinking (Capricorn) as we face a crisis to prove the value (Pluto) and practical sense (Capricorn) of what we say (Mercury). We are diplomatic (Libra) yet work hard to prove our worth (Pluto) and build reputation (Capricorn). It’s good to be challenged on our ideas today. It’ll help you grow, that what squares do. We have lot of energy and confidence to stand up for ourselves. It could be a rewarding day as you get credit for things you’ve said or done correctly, or the opposite, someone who denies your worth or thinks what you have to say has no value. And likely a bit of both.
It may be mostly just your imagination. If you’re obsessed about creating a positive impression on others and getting them to listen to you, then you create tension from the start. Instead, in your one to one (Libra) communication (Mercury), consider the value of your own words and seek to empower others (Pluto) through sharing your better judgment (Capricorn). Measure your words carefully and avoid anything this is cold or stern (Capricorn) or secretive or deceptive (Pluto). Things you do in secret today will be revealed and in fact, past secrets regarding relationships could be revealed today.
On the good side, you can get a lot of work done with this aspect. If you need to communicate something important, you will find that you have all the energy you need. Aspect increases focus and concentration and mental stamina (Pluto). Aspect is good for working alone if necessary with the goal of some future gain (Capricorn).
If you lack an outlet, you could get frustrated. Avoid coercion, take what the universe gives you, don’t complain about lack (Capricorn) and instead use the extra energy that Pluto brings to help someone with your words. Aspect is good for communicating very important matters such as in a crisis situation. You can do much good with this aspect if you keep your thinking (Mercury) on the collective good (Pluto).
8:11pm – Moon conjunct Uranus (Aires) Ready for a change of scenery. Do something different. Surprise yourself.
9:23pm – Moon (Aires) opposition Sun (Libra). Full Moon at 23d Aires. A look at this months Full Moon aspects as we see Moon conjunct Uranus and Moon square Pluto and Mars. Looks like a pretty contentious Full Moon. We see a lot of ego energies feeling repressed and looking for change. It’s a powerful combination that enables us to initiate necessary change and transformation of our lives. This will make for a rather energetic and active Full Moon. Use caution when driving and stay away from dangerous situations. There will be lots of people going out tonight. Void of Course begins.
Wonderful relaxing Sunday with Moon in Taurus.
8:04am – Moon enters Taurus. Time to relax and get a massage. Steadfast and determined, we have the energy to complete projects we’ve already started. Sensual, we need to feel grounded and placid. We feel more attached to our belongings, especially our money. We search for affinity and comfort and feel like spending money on ourselves.
11:08pm – Moon (Taurus) sextile Neptune (Pisces). Good for rock medicine. Opens you up to subtle impressions, psychic ability.
