Note this is posted early! Don't miss the new Moon forecast on the post below. July 24th to 26th in particular! Happy summer to all!
Monday: Leo Moon
This Leo Moon has unusual, opposing forces at work with Saturn and Uranus chiming in at once. The late day or evening aspects, depending on your time zone, occur at 8:14 pm EDT with a trine to rebellious Uranus followed by a square to rule abiding Saturn. Parents and teenagers will power struggle and other similar conflicts also result. Uranus and the Moon are out of control with fiery, bold energy for change, personal statements, breaking the rules, and wild abandon. Be cautious since things may move fast and with force! Saturn and the Moon in fixed signs depict unyielding opinions and strong wills in conflict or trying to work things out. Great effort is called for to find agreement if there's discontent. The tendency today is to do your own thing. There's a risk taking vibe, but be careful about that. Uranus comes on awfully strong. Precautions are a good idea. Enjoy in moderation. The Moon is void of course all day and moves to Virgo at 11:37 pm EDT. Venus opposite Pluto, 2:39 am EDT is in effect all week. See tomorrow's forecast for the lowdown! Today's color is yellow.
Tuesday: Venus opposite Pluto
Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn. Face relationship realities. This may include a deep, in some cases uncomfortable, conversation. If it happened last night, the effects may linger today and more questions and curiosities surface. Pluto asks we dive into the unknown, the mysteries and the past in some cases. That can mean fears crop up or old wounds resurface, hopefully for more resolution and healing. The Virgo Moon may be on your side if things are surfacing and strong since we can let go more easily and process soulfully and creatively with Venus at work. Find peace with something or someone, not by skimming over a problem, but by going for the root and the answer, gently. It is a social day and evening for gatherings. Today's color is navy blue.
Wednesday: Virgo Moon
The Virgo Moon is in harmony with Venus for good feelings and attitudes toward each other. Friendships and collaborations benefit! We work together well on days like this. Saturn contributes energy too, and with Scorpio and Virgo tendencies accented, get things done and details worked out. Concentration, harmony, and helpfulness are some key words. This is a simple forecast for a day when you can streamline. If you're not sure what to do, clean, redecorate, or go over financial plans. Today's color is pink.
Thursday: Mercury to Leo, Virgo to Libra Moon
Mercury's last move in Cancer is a sextile (favorable) to the Virgo Moon. It's nurturing and can help us give or receive advice or support. Solve a family or home related problem and get those kinds of tasks done too. Contact people who can provide what you need including work you need done at home or something health related. Give criticism constructively and sensitively. Contracts are favored. The Moon is void 10:47 am to 12:09 pm (take an early lunch break?). The hours following are Libra Moon time for mediating and study or information gathering to make your best judgement. The Moon and expansive Jupiter in Leo work together helping with growth and making the right connections. Mercury moves to Leo at 6:36 pm. Networking, celebrating & performing at favored for the next few weeks. Today's color is blue.
Friday: Libra Moon
Last week the Leo New Moon meant to propel plans and projects, relationships and growth. How are you doing nearly one week later? The first day of August is about partnership, for one. Libra is the sign of couples, duos, and finding balance between two sides. Venus, the planet of love, is active today, square the Moon and Uranus and in harmony with Saturn. Work out an agreement on a serious relationship matter. Commit. Be willing to go to extraordinary lengths if something is worthwhile. Don't be thrown off course or respond to petty things, especially in the relationship realm. Mars is square to Jupiter, and oh the effort that might be needed for growth and new learning! Passion, enthusiasm, and power themes flare with this square. It's one of extremes, both initiative and resistance. It could bring luck & energy with something you've been trying to get momentum for: Leo, in home life, Scorpio in career, Cancer, money and employment, Taurus, home and married life or other partnership. Yet it is not a "piece of cake". There's work to be done and both action on things and willingness to learn are required. For all signs, put your focus on what you most hope to expand, not only this week, but this year. Sagittarius, keep your plans quiet so they're not thwarted. Aquarius, your career and relationship have equal priority and so much emphasis now. Make sure both are well taken care of. Today's a busy day in the zodiac. Void of course Moon 10:58 pm to 10:57 pm EDT tomorrow. Wear purple.
Saturday: Void of course Moon in Libra
Yesterday's forecast also applies today in every way. Re-read it and add Mercury as today's strongest planet, squaring Mars and meeting Jupiter. Everything Mars/Jupiter related in Friday's forecast gets a chance to solve, resolve, or get bigger and more powerful due to Mercury. Mercury now in Leo is expressive, dynamic, and rules performers, teachers, those who work in media especially as on screen or air talent, and also children and the business surrounding them. Be creative with words and ideas today. Think playfully even in problem solving. Let rules go a little and expand the limits and see how things change. Capricorn, work at your dreams from the financial standpoint. Can you work out a plan to make travel or a new business or education happen? Is there a person or place you can get support for your plan? Gemini, Mercury is your ruling planet and dynamic with Jupiter and Mars, your business plans get a spark and a change of routine is refreshing. Jupiter rules Sagittarius, and archer this is your travel year. You must expand your experiences to feel fulfilled and feed your soul for a year until next summer. If the plan is more future than now, start working on a way. You may succeed in international business and education this year too. Tonight's Scorpio Moon moves in at 10:57 pm. Today's color is gold.
Sunday: Moon conjunct Mars in Scorpio
Nearly every planet is at play in the zodiac today. Mars is the force to be reckoned with or to fuel you. In Scorpio, Mars is in one of his strongest zones. It's a passionate influence, and passion can range from great love or energy to destructive anger or envy. If you need to cool it down a bit, take yourself out of the situation and get away-like a big kid time out. Some solitary time, natural surroundings, or spiritual pursuits will be just the right thing for some. If you're drawn into groups and events though, keep your cool, detach from the craziness, be a bit mysterious, and find someone to chill with. It's a good day for personal priorities, focus, and action on important things. Minimize distractions, gossip, and telling yourself stories that may not be true. Today's color is maroon.
