Monday: Moon conjunct Saturn, Mercury in Sagittarius
The Moon and Saturn meet in Scorpio. Many will revisit their tough stuff today. Saturn is the influence of authority and elders and wisdom from experience. If you deal with older people, issues around that will be important and/or intense. This is now a monthly occurence since early October so consider this the 3rd round in a few months and make sense of the pattern. Authority issues may be more quietly present yet deep and strong as an influence. Channeling that anger or resentment or displeasure with bosses, parents, or others in charge instead of letting it blow up is a challenge today and Aquarius and Gemini might feel it in career while Scorpio is in the personal midst of it and Taurus may feel a partner is trying to control things to an extreme. The Moon aligns with Mars and Pluto so there's a heavy Capricorn influence at work and sometimes it means control is hard to let go of. Mars adds an organizational and task oriented feeling so it can be a productive day! Mercury moves to Sagittarius tonight where the planet of communication and travel instigates honesty, clearing the air, and learning by experience for the next few weeks. Wear black.
Tuesday: Sagittarius Moon
The Moon is void of course after a meeting with Venus at 8:08 am. Relationship matters become priority. Passion intensifies as does jealousy and the need to control. In best situations, love will happily consume you while in struggling relationships we'll tend to obsess and over analyze. Respect is key today. The Sagittarius Moon is coming in later to remind us how good personal freedom feels. Meanwhile, Neptune squares Mercury and the Moon and deceit becomes another issue to confront. We're not likely to "get away with" anything today. Speak the truth or remain quiet. If you get the feeling someone is trying to dupe you, go with that instinct. Ask questions today. The Moon is in Sagittarius from 5:22 pm on, meeting Mercury for philosophical talk, exchange of ideas, setting off on travels, and favoring changes of routine. Today's color is purple.
Wednesday: Moon opposes Jupiter
The Sagittarius Moon and Jupiter in Gemini face off. Both are mutable signs which indicates change, and today changing our minds, altering the scale of things to larger or more modest, and entertaining new ideas is in the forecast. Travel and learning experiences are well timed. There's a restlessness that longs to be satisfied with something other than the same old. Keep an open mind. Opportunities are in the air for Virgo in career, Scorpio in employment or other financial matters, and Leo and Aquarius for general luck! Aries, communicating well is high priority as is taking care of anything that needs to be put in writing or consulted upon with experts. The pace is likely to be fast, and though Sagittarius Moon isn't always the most grounded time, keeping up with emails, messages and other work is one way to avoid criticism. Lack of attention and responsibility is one area that could cause trouble or unrest today. We're also prime for changing our minds about some of our bigger life plans. Tonight, get your ideas and plans in order for tomorrow's New Moon. Wear red today.
Thursday: New Moon in Sagittarius
Today's New Moon highlights educational and travel plans. This is a good time to send applications, get acceptances to schools or programs, book flights and expore options in those areas. The New Moon arrives at 3:42 am and it's game on! Act on things you've been holding off on. Uranus is direct today in Aries, adding a sense of movement in the larger universe, beyond our personal interests too. There's a sense of forward motion and it's prime time to direct our drive and energies to what we desire. Talk to someone who can help you with possible options for change if you're a Libra. Libra you may also work on family business or relationships now. Gemini, renew or revitalize a partnership in love or business. Capricorn and Cancer, set your routine so you have some personal time regularly this month and take care of your health as a daily regimen from vitamins to your work out. Sagittarius, this is your best time of year for change. Let something go today too, resentment for example. The Sagittarius Moon eases the process. The Moon is void of course from 3:42 am to 4:43 pm EST and then moves to Capricorn for a night designed for accomplishment, work and study. Today's color is white.
Friday: Mercury trine Uranus
The Capricorn Moon meets Pluto which is a pattern you might feel familiar with especially if you're born under that sign. Pluto brings us to face realities and contemplate the undercurrents at work. A bit of meditative thoughtful time may clear the head today. Mercury and Uranus are at work in the fire signs and a clear mind can help as we get the urge to act quickly and in the moment. Today is made for decisions, new course of action, and moving on things even if it means taking a bit of a chance and staying open to things working out this way or that. In other words, don't get too attached to one outcome. Give something your best try. Capricorn Moon is work oriented and this is a good day or night to get things done! Wear gray.
Saturday: Moon conjunct Mars
If anything has been in your way this week, in the wake of a Thursday New Moon, the Moon and Mars shout "let's go, let's get on with this!" today. The Moon is in Capricorn until 4:53 pm with only a short 48 minute void of course time, and Mars sends the impetus for action, solid work on goals and solutions to problems. Figure out how to make something work with the Moon and Mars in this hands on, organizational earth sign. The Aquarius Moon that follows equally equips us to move on goals. It's a good night for a party, gathering or community event too as the Moon and Venus align before the Moon changes signs. We're set up for a hopeful, productive day and optimistic, social night. Today's color is silver.
Sunday: Venus square Neptune
The Moon is in Aquarius in harmony with Jupiter in Gemini, continuing good vibes from last night even if Saturn's influence has you coping with serious life matters. The air sign energy helps us with open minds, changing perspectives, and ability to cooperate. Venus and Neptune in Scorpio and Pisces add emotional content including sentiment, romance and melancholy. It's good to be with friends today and if you're not feeling good, follow the Aquarius Moon, sign of community and best friends and gather with your tribe. Today's color is turquoise.
