Thursday: The Moon was Full exactly at 5:42 pm EDT on Wednesday. Essentially, the Moon is still Full, void of course since then, and moving to Sagittarius at 12:59 pm EDT. Mars squares Neptune in the mutable signs, pushing for changes including mental shifts. Mercury aligns with Saturn in fire signs, initiating agreements, urging us to finalize by putting things into verbal or written contracts and commitments.  All 4 planets are in signs of flux, flexibility or initiation.  Change is today's key word, and what occurred just six weeks or so ago is up for new debate.  Today's color is Red.

Friday: Sagittarius Moon aspects Venus, Jupiter, Neptune and Mars. Mars is opposite, in Gemini and aligns with Jupiter in Libra.  Fairness and philosophical differences are highlighted. Mental energy is required and our powers of persuasion or our limits may be put to the test. It's not all bad by any means though. Jupiter favors justice and expansion.  Today's color is Purple.

Monday: Capricorn Moon meets Pluto retrograde, squares Jupiter retrograde, and is in harmony with Neptune in Pisces. Cardinal sign energy of Capricorn and Libra sets up opportunities to share power, combine the best modalities or traits in efforts to move forward, with the big idea and the method both in place.

See what needs to be done and devise a plan or begin the work. Today's color is Green.

Tuesday: Mercury moves back into Taurus, where the retrograde began, at 12:07 am EDT. In Taurus, mercury encourages step by step processes, a goal oriented but calm nature, thoughts and plans related to security, stability, and common sense.  If your plan needs refining or you've lost track of or skipped steps in a process, this is a fine time to re-set, go back and repeat or revise, and find your path. Moon and Sun form a trine in Capricorn/Taurus at daybreak (EDT), helping us get a good start. During the day, Uranus squares Capricorn Moon so be ready to think and problem solve quickly. Void of course Moon 6:22 to 1:50 pm EDT when the Moon moves into Aquarius and squares Mercury newly in Taurus. Match your actions to your words and your ultimate vision.

Be willing to face something difficult in order to resolve it once and for all.
