We're experiencing Mercury retrograde in full swing now. Try to hold off on big moves and decisions until late late September. That's not always possible, right? So if you have to make a move or have an important discussion or come to a crossroads now, keep your decisions flexible. Room to change your mind is VERY important this month. Loopholes are good. It's better to say I can't make any promises than to break them later. And it's best not to expect too much from each other. Minimum expectations work today. I would avoid any major purchase, but if you do buy, save your receipts and make sure the item can be returned. People are already talking about losing and breaking phones and this is typical modern Mercury retrograde at work! I favor temporary phone plans this month. By October you will change your mind, find a better deal, or wish you'd waited for some other reason. If you are simply replacing the one you had, that's better than going for a new plan or new number or anything major. Today the Moon is in Aries in harmony with Jupiter and Neptune. It's a pretty nice day socially. It's good to feel like you're turning a corner now, but keep off the rose colored glasses. There's a tendency to be unrealistic. Stay cool, don't make impulsive moves or promises. It will feel good to be adventurous and on the go, but expect Mercury retrograde delays and confusion. The Moon is void of course from 8:12 pm until after 6am EST, and that's a particularly unpredictable time. Wear yellow.
The Moon moves to Taurus at 6:17 am. This can be good if you need to land and get back on track after vacation or the weekend. Slow and steady does it as the Moon aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. Look up to authority, show your organizational and leadership ability. This is very true for Leo and Taurus. Scorpio you will probably feel the need for structure and some power in your closest personal relationships but you could be very demanding today. It's a good day to be productive while keeping Mercury retrograde in mind. Things we commit to during a Taurus Moon tend to stick and are hard to get out of. Commit very thoughtfully if at all. Tonight, the Moon aligns with Mars in Cancer which is home oriented. It's a good night for family dinner, nesting, cleaning, and organizing. If you're going out, good friends win over new acquaintances and old friend return to our lives with Mercury retrograde. Sagittarius, Gemini and Libra may be noticing that most right now. Wear blue.
The Moon is in Taurus and this is a mixed day. Love and relationship commitments are challenged as the Moon squares Venus in Leo. Leo and Taurus will notice this in family relationships and Scorpio and Aquarius in marriages and other long term partnerships. Aries and Capricorn friends and people you're dating may cause some tensions for you. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, so relationship situations may dominate our minds. It's a decent day for decisions as far as September goes, with the Sun and Moon aligned in earth signs Virgo and Taurus. Act very practically and leave yourself room to move or upgrade or change your mind. A trial plan is perfect right now! Agree to reconvene and see how things are going in early October or the last days of the month. Tonight the Taurus Moon tangles with Jupiter in two stubborn signs, making it hard to compromise, necessary to scale down and be less extravagant. Work out a budget, minimize, and avoid exaggerations. Wear pink today.
The Moon is void of course from 3:17 am to 12:17 pm EST and Mercury is retrograde in Libra. It's a good time to lay low, avoid people who pressure you for answers, and take care of routine business and things at home. There are surprises and unrealistic attitudes and expectations in the air. Working from home or with the door closed and a do not disturb sign might be a good plan! Aries and Libra, Mercury retrograde might be throwing a chaotic spin on your relationship, so make sure you are clear and understood. Misunderstandings will be rampant today! Those of you in legal fields will be noticing the retrograde alot in the form of misfiled or missing paperwork and schedule glitches. Try to show up where you are expected this morning since we will tend to miss appointments and dates. The afternoon brings a busy Gemini Moon, and the pros and cons of multitasking linger all night long. Juggle two things but refuse three! Mercury brings back old friends, ex's, colleagues and family big time this week including tonight. Be part of it and call someone who will be glad to hear from you. Cancer and Leo get in touch with distant family members. Wear white today.
It's a 4th quarter Moon in Gemini which is designed for getting rid of things and moving on. But don't burn bridges and be very sure if you're letting things go now. With Mercury retrograde you might wish you'd waited. Mercury is opposite Jupiter and we have to be very careful what we say today! Exaggeration and impossible promises may be made too easily! Keep plans simple and flexible! Jupiter in Aquarius in harmony with the Moon pushes for big ideas and multiple possibilities. Brainstorm and plan but leave final details for October if you can. At least, leave room to change plans as needed! Today is somehow full of exclamation points as you can see! We're likely to be busy and maybe forgetful. Don't give off the cuff answers. Think things out. Tonight changes of plans are all over the place and we'll wish we could be two places at once as the Moon and Sun square in Gemini and Virgo. Do some tough problem solving too, and put temporary plans in place in changing situations. The potential for misunderstanding continues to be higher than usual. It's a good night for easygoing social plans and both new and old friends. Wear green.
The Moon is void of course in Gemini from 7 to 4:19 pm. With Uranus and Pluto involved Saturday is semi chaotic and very unpredictable. Keeping plans loose is a good idea. Friends may not be very reliable and there's plenty of nervous energy. If you can relax and go with the flow, it's a good day to just hang out and not do much. The Moon is in Cancer in the evening, nice for family gatherings. But excuses loom for those who don't want to participate. Today's color is blue.
The Moon and Mars meet in Cancer. Mars is the initiator so if you feel like getting things done, especially at home, this is on your side. But it's also a moody day and we'll tend to aggravate each other easily. Cooking, cleaning, rearranging and taking care of each other are today's work. It's also a time of reconsidering things and recognizing that maybe you reacted too quickly. The days coming up are full of rethinking, but the best long term plans and solutions will come at the end of the month or in November. Today may be a good day to just "put a band aid" on problems. Wear white today.
