January 13th to January 19th, 2014

There's a Full Moon in Cancer this week. Know that cardinal signs may be experiencing stress or challenge. Acting defensive is one effect of the Full Moon, Uranus in Aries, Mars in Libra and all the active planets in Capricorn right now. Structure and order help. It's situations where everything is up in the air that will cause the most strain and result in arguments, strong moods, or withdrawing rather than meeting challenges.

This is the sign of our household and our biological or childhood families too. Interactions with parents and elders may take on great importance. Full Moons can be a time or resolutions. Settle business, forgive, take care of something significant, and through it all be sensitive, respectful, and positive. With Cancer Moon and planets in Capricorn, a sensible attitude is called for, where feelings don't dominate but have their rightful place. Emotional high tide is likely and you don't want it to cause flooding during this water sign peak! How much you can acknowledge another or others and still go about your business and accomplish the tasks and goals at hand is the key to Full Moon success without drama. Cancer represents home and family, Capricorn relates to our aspirations. Mars in Libra urges fairness to all and Uranus in Aries is the wild card pitching us one thing after another to keep it exciting or chaotic.  These are the 4 high energies at work this week and intermittently over a period of time this year. 

One idea to consider is how to be personally successful without creating insecure feelings in your most significant others. Another is how to put together a virtual "first aid kit" containing a scale to weigh out options and measure for balanced interactions, a pillow to soften your landing or someone else's, sneakers as a reminder to be grounded and keep moving (high heels won't do!), and a real list or book of short meditations as a got to if news or changes shake you up. David Baird's Thought Patterns for a Peaceful Life is on my coffee table right now, and it's a small square book you can carry anywhere so I'll recommend that one today.

Capricorn-personal peaks,news                   Cancer-relationship commitments, decisions
Aquarius-inspirations for work, health           Leo-internal processes, busy schedules
Pisces-fortune, fate, love                             Virgo-supportive allies, friendship
Aries-career, home, family                           Libra-career, growth & development
Taurus-communication, news, learning         Scorpio-opportunities, training, travels
Gemini-financial decisions, employment        Sagittarius-privacy, legalities, enlightenments

Monday: Gemini to Cancer Moon
The Moon is in Gemini and last night's trine to Mars lives on while the Moon is void of course. The brain is stimulated though there may be nothing to do or no reason to act on information quite yet.  Mercury is newly in Aquarius as of Saturday, and logic wants to prevail. Try not to over think and also, on the other end of the spectrum, not to forget or lose track of what's important. A fair share of contradictions makes decisions difficult or ambiguous. It's often good to wait until the Moon is solidly cruising one sign. Socialize and read, research and gather facts today. Later, at 7:25 pm the Moon is in Cancer and the Full Moon warms up for a peak Wednesday.  The Moon and Neptune approach a trine, exact at 2:41 am, for daydreaming or night dreaming, and that can be where inspiration for something is born. Be creative or make romantic plans for tonight. Wear silver.

Tuesday: Cancer Full Moon
The Moon is full in her home sign at 11:52 pm tomorrow night. Cancer relates to family, house and home, and our deepest feelings.  Feeling sentimental is natural.  The Moon opposes Pluto and we look at the past to resolve the moment. Uranus in Aries so close to the Full Moon can be fuel for anxiety, or enthusiasm. It all depends what's happening in your world, but that feeling something is about to happen and it's not in your full control is what we're experiencing.  Confrontations could be explosive so make sure it's worth it or that you approach the subject with tact and perspective.  Those not ready to confront or solve will be defensive under Cancer Full Moon. We'll protect what we perceive to be our best interests, whether they are or not.  The Moon meets Jupiter at midnight which is the highlight and the best work of this month's Full Moon. Jupiter encourages love, blessings, learning and expansion. We may want to eat or consume too much. It's a comfort food kind of day or night. Can you moderate that a little bit? We may indulge in anything healthy or unhealthy in large doses to feel comforted and good. The positive way to work with Jupiter is to try and expand your mind, opportunities and how much you accept challenge and believe in yourself or a family member.  It's a Full Moon with many possible priorities and outcomes. Keep feelings in mind. Be protective but not the point of holding things back that need to happen.  Look at old photos, listen to your favorite tunes and find inspiration.  Today's color is light blue.
Wednesday: Cancer Full Moon
Full Moon in Cancer is 11:52 pm ET and 8:52 Pacific and adjustable by time zone of course.  Regardless of the exact time, we are in Full Moon mode for the entire business week, Monday to Friday at least. Cancer is the sign of home and our biological family, ancestry, older age, and what and whom is dearest to us.  Our instinct is to protect and to intuit during this Moon.  The Moon square Mars and opposing Venus makes relationships so important through all of this week's action. We may argue, forgive, love intensely or find ourselves on opposite sides looking for that sweet spot of agreement or truce. Saturn urges wisdom, reminds us of loyalties and encourages long term decisions only. Matters of family, elders, legacies, and health dominate this Full Moon. Creative souls may feel introverted and wrapped up in work or processing. Some may not get what the fuss is all about. They're lving a different life.  This is a very sentimental, psychic, soulful Full Moon. Whatever you do, do it with heart, positive interests and healing in mind.  Today's color is white.

Thursday: Leo Moon, Venus square Mars
The Moon moves to Leo at 8 am ET. This is a good follow up to last night's Full Moon, action oriented, optimistic, fun loving and lighter.  Full Moon themes continue in regard to family,households and protecting interests. Decisions, deadlines, and emotional peaks continue. Venus square to Mars puts love, relationship, and difference that need to be reconciled in the forefront today. Try to think out of your usual pattern, be more logical if you're emotional generally and more practical if you tend to live in the world of ideas. Bring it down to earth and see what you can make happen! Talk about it without prejudging. Listen. Have some fun. Today's color is orange.

Friday: Leo Moon opposes Mercury, Mercury trine Uranus

Leo Moon is a great time to celebrate! I hope you had some good news or an accomplishment worthy this week! Moon, Mercury & Uranus are all tied together for sudden changes, brilliant ideas, last minute plans, and reasons to agree especially where community, group, and team projects are involved.  Mercury and the Moon are in fixed yet very people oriented signs. Listen to another point of view. One problem might be so much talk you can't get a word in. Aim for balanced collaboration.  Right and left brain can work very well together today. Leo Moon provides the outrageous and creative while Aquarius Moon satisfies the technicalities and inventiveness. One must allow the other in for best results! Mercury and Uranus practically assure a newsworthy day. Hopefully that's all good. Take your time responding and reacting if things take you off guard.  Tonight is a party night with Mars and Leo Moon in social signs.  Wear red.

Saturday: Leo Moon square Saturn in Scorpio

Leo Moon is void of course from 3:51 am to 8:23 pm ET. It's ideal for relaxation and fun as long as some heavy business isn't weighing on your mind. Taking care of something early, if not yesterday, will help with that Saturn influence related to obligations and intense circumstances.  If you can do only one thing that makes you feel better and helps you relax, for example a phone call, a plan for Monday, a small step toward a large goal, do that and then join the festivities or make some space for your own priorities this weekend. It's not a great time to shop. It is a fine time to gather with people, participate in a game, attend or be part of a performance or do creative things.  The Moon moves to Virgo tonight, and it's less fired up which may feel more comfortable to the more introverted and those who have to work this weekend. It's the last full night for Capricorn babies & birthdays this season. Today's color is indigo blue.

Sunday:  Virgo Moon opposes Neptune 

Virgo Moon is active with Neptune for blending practicality and imagination. Getting to the details with art, writing, projects at home and any endeavor requiring attention to the finer points is favored. Jupiter in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn are flanking the Moon for supporting players and stability as well as potential prosperity and expansion. It's a good time for learning, studies, business and personal realizations or resolutions. Virgo is a sign of service to others and we may feel called to contribute. Overall today has very beneficial aspects.  Wear blue.
