Sunday: Gemini Moon squares Neptune. Communication is a theme today, and misunderstandings can come with the square. Is someone presenting as who they really are? Are intentions clear or being hidden or misrepresented. Ask yourself and trust your inner wisdom. Sometimes we want to believe in someone and see the best in them. Unfortunately, that can also lead us to be fooled and misjudge. Romantic notions and ideals deserve a second or third look and some questioning. Allow yourself some daydreaming time, create art or verse. Channel mental stress artistically. Tonight, minds are activated as the Moon is in harmony with Mercury, both in air signs. Today's color is Light Blue.
Monday: Gemini Moon in harmony with Mercury helps us work together, especially in groups. It's a good aspect for a meeting or strategy session. We may start revisiting past ideas to see if they have viability and life. If you worked late into Sunday night or were full of thoughts and ideas, the trine may have come into play. How will you follow up today? After this trine, the Moon is void of course 2:17 am to 1:52 pm EST. Monday morning may feel disorienting or disorganized. Cancer Moon has no major aspects this afternoon and night. One theme is the comfort zone. Is it where you need to be for the moment? Full Moon is just ahead, and with the Moon in her home sign now, emotions arise strongly. Today's color is White.
Tuesday: Cancer Moon aligns with Uranus and Mars. Some will feel overwhelmed. The planets push us out of our comfort zone, or try to. Uranus shakes things up while Mars asks how strong you are and what actions will you take toward a goal. The earth may feel a bit shaky under our feet. The Sun squares Uranus and compromise is difficult. We lean toward freedom and doing things our own way, even if it separates us from others. This can be positive if it brings out your most original ideas and creations. Tune into your authentic self. If you are merely being stubborn, that's another matter. Emotionally, this is a peak time. Fear may be expressed in another form, such as anger. Sadness may come out as emotional distancing. If you feel someone is against you, check in and find out if that's real or perceived. Notice if someone needs help and is in distress. Today's color is Turquoise.
Wednesday: Cancer Moon aligns with Neptune in Pisces and goes on to oppose Pluto and Venus in Capricorn. Our differences become obvious. Relationships, such as family relationships, may be under stress this week. One issue is people presenting dishonestly, in some cases to protect themselves. Compromise may not come easily, but may be worth a try. Very emotionally driven decisions and approaches are in stark contrast to extremely practical, business like ones. That's a major area of difference between Cancer and Capricorn. Creatively, we benefit from the Moon and Neptune's trine. Void Moon begins at 12:55 pm EST, a good time to tap into inspired ideas and make something from them. Leo Moon time begins at 9:54 pm EST and the Full Moon peaks on Thursday afternoon. Everything about tonight feels magnified. Strength of conviction is called for as the Moon approaches a Saturn opposition. Today's color is Orange.
Thursday: Full Moon in Leo at 2:16 pm EST. The Moon's aspects are challenging, with oppositions to Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius and a square to Mars and to erratic, eccentric Uranus in Taurus. Mercury is about to be retrograde in Aquarius, and opposes the Moon on Friday. Differences of approach, opinion, and action are highlighted. Leo Moon evokes strength and strength may be channeled into purpose. Strong will arises for some. Compromise is called for, but achieving that will require work. Can we work through differences and see what the brightest plan is? Venus meets Pluto today and inner feelings need to be reconciled or expressed in close and intimate relationships. True feelings will be brought to light during this Full Moon. Major decisions may come, but they are shadowed by our closeness to Mercury retrograde degrees. The retrograde starts on Saturday. What we engage in now is likely to require revision and rethinking. Sometimes that's ok, though. Make a temporary plan if that seems sensible or is required. Extra flair, generosity, and surprise gifts make this Full Moon memorable and lighter. The Sun and Jupiter contribute to that with a conjunction tonight. Wear Gold.
Friday: Leo Moon opposes Mercury, almost retrograde. This is today's only major aspect. Notice your words and think them out. Observe yourself as you negotiate with others. Notice how willful and how truthful you are. Some people will argue their point today. Some will find wonderful ways to collaborate or contribute to group efforts. The Full Moon feelings continue. Void of course Moon 8:53 pm EST to 3:02 am on Saturday. Today's color is Purple.
Saturday: Mercury retrograde is in Aquarius this winter. This quarterly period, beginning at 10:52 am EST, is known for technical and communication issues, reasons to revise, plans that will never come to fruition, and situations turning out very different than expected. It's not all bad. We get a chance to recover, re-create, forgive, let go, reconnect, and reunite. Revisit a plan that didn't work out the first time. Aquarius is a technology and science sign. Get reacquainted with facts and with collaborative efforts. We may become active in groups again and go back to activities we let slip for a while. Mercury is retrograde until February 20th. A trial basis is favored over a long term commitment during these 3 weeks.
Virgo Moon aligns with Uranus in Taurus. This may assist in making some sense of chaos and in finding flexibility. Problem solve and trouble shoot. Try alternative approaches. Late night, the Moon forms a similar trine to Mars for taking productive action. Do something simple and healthy about that thing that's bothering you. One step may be all you need for now. Brown is today's color.
