Monday: Libra Moon, Neptune retrograde in Pisces
Libra Moon aligns with Saturn retro in Sagittarius in a sextile, a favorable angle two signs apart. Make new agreements around old business and revisions to systems and structures that need improvement. With Mats and Saturn retro, this is not the time to form brand new agreements or establish a system or a building for the first time. This is about re-doing and changing what's been in place. It's an important distinction. Mars retro is not a favorable time to launch a business or start a major project. Saturn is slowing things down until August 13th to help us review and revise the skeletal structures that stabilize us and provide frameworks and templates, personally or professionally. Neptune joins the retrograde crew today, and will square Saturn on Friday, affecting both this week and next. Financial agreements are not recommended at this time. Other negotiations, especially those in the works for what seems like forever, are up for long term resolution. Justice is a theme today. Be fair in every way possible. Will two retrogrades in a square turn negative to positive on Friday? I don't think so. Be curious, questioning, and wise this week. Neptune in Pisces is duplicitous and deceiving. These retrograde planets in tandem will force out the truth and change systems that are outdated, but this doesn't usually happen overnight. Collectively, be careful about fear of what you don't know, do not assume, question motives, and beware of what's vague and unclear, all the way through November and particularly this week. Today's color is blue.
Tuesday: Libra Moon opposite Uranus, Sun sextile Uranus
This is a day of surprises. Uranus rarely delivers what we expect, yet allows for sudden changes, inspired ideas, and avant-garde thinking and attitudes. Originality and out of the blue answers come on days like this. Sun in Gemini relates to communication, commuting, and plans and Uranus in Aries is the unusual and new. It's a huge brainstorming day. Conditions are right for inventing and improvising successfully. Get turned on to something fresh and unique, from fashion to philosophy. Note the unusual among your friends and colleagues and see what there is to appreciate in walking outside the traditional path. The downside to Uranus activity is freak accidents and startling news. Hopefully that will not happen, but stay very aware and in control of your responses. It's not a good day to be inebriated or even on strong cold medicine, for example. Lightning speed of any kind is in the forecast today. Moon in harmony with Venus overnight makes for a romantic, fun date. Our color is turquoise.
Wednesday: 2nd Quarter Moon, Moon Libra to Scorpio
From 3:00 am to 9:18 am, the Moon is void of course. Scorpio Moon moves in, and determination and passion for desired outcomes is activated. Full Moon is next Monday and some of us will pursue a deadline just ahead. It is a good time for focus and depth, whatever your topic or project. Becoming more single minded is natural now, as is becoming more private and solitary. This doesn't mean having to spend all your time alone. It does mean that taking a few hours to do that may result in the productivity or personal introspection you need. Meditation is favored and may be easier than on, for example, a Gemini type day. Define your purpose and outline some steps. Venus and the Sun in Gemini still favor social times as well. Balance your introverted and extroverted sides with a bit of variety. Today's color is maroon.
Thursday: Scorpio Moon
The Moon harmonizes with Neptune in Pisces (retro), Jupiter in Virgo, and Pluto in Capricorn (retro). With Saturn and Mars in the retrograde mix too, relevance to the past flows through present activities. Learn from the past, for example. If being fixed on and pursuing something or someone only resulted in frustration or hurt, consider not repeating that pattern. The Sun and Uranus early in the week, set you up to try acting or thinking differently. Follow up on a great idea, especially if it relates to revising a plan or structure that simply does not work efficiently. Jupiter encourages growth, prosperity and health and is harmony with the Moon today. Attend to a health matter and follow up on your plan or "prescription." Drugs are ruled by Neptune, and now I'm talking about the ones that disconnect us from our bodies and clear mindedness. Never a good idea, they can be even more of an issue with Neptune retrograde. Avoid recreational use or abuse in an attempt to solve depression and problems. Scorpio and Pisces are both prone to issues with substances as are those born with certain aspects in personal charts ( at least that's my point of view), like Saturn in Scorpio (you are now about 33 years old or in your early 60s). Look for solutions to long standing patterns that could use a shake up in order to create more health, abundance and happiness. Today's color is indigo.
Friday: Scorpio Moon conjunct Mars, Saturn square Neptune (both retrograde), Venus to Cancer
This is a climactic day or a turning point in the season. Monday is the Full Moon and Solstice, however the intensity is present all the way through the next 5 to 6 days. Venus in Cancer from 3:39 pm on is sentimental, warm, and somewhat possessive as well as protective of what we love. Cancer, you benefit from venus's visit in the next 4 weeks, attracting romance, positive attention and heart's desire. The Moon conjunct Mars retro in Scorpio inspires passion, but is volatile and can stir up repressed anger or other difficult emotions too. It's not a good day to argue. Void of course Moon is 9:52 am to 9:34 pm EDT. The upside is that challenging things may go more smoothly than expected and something that might be a huge issue on another day gets shrugged off or overlooked. The downside is forgetfulness or just putting your energy into the "wrong" or less worthwhile things (or people). Allow for a margin of error, leave earlier than you think you need to, and have good directions. We may find ourselves lost one way or another today. Saturn square Neptune is much bigger that just today, and quite complex. In a general sense, this aspect works to reveal what's untrue and irresponsible so it can be fixed. Be careful not to lose your ambition, your ability to think and respond clearly, or your sanity. Today's color is black.
Saturday: Sagittarius Moon
The Moon squares Neptune, meets Saturn and opposes Mercury in a continuation of the Saturn/Neptune square forecast of yesterday. The emotions of the situation arise. Sagittarius Moon is a bit philosophical and can struggle with intense emotion. Plus the Full Moon is Monday, still in Sagittarius. Sag, you, among others, could find this weekend very dramatic or thought provoking as well as complicated. Things long overdue take new shape. Question what you hear and see since Neptune is retrograde and active. Living in a dream world could be a problem. Expand your perspective and listen to others, even if you're in disagreement. Perspective and clarity are necessary now. Truths can be tough to face, and this Full Moon brings them to the surface. Reconsider what you thought was real, as needed. One big problem now is the tendency to just want to escape. You can't run from what's inside or outside you either. Avoid the quick remedy and look for solutions to old problems. Mercury is across from the Moon, initiating thought and planning. Travels are busy and there may be lots of traffic or detours. It's good to have plan b or c to fall back on. Today's color is yellow.
Sunday: Sagittarius Moon square Jupiter, trine Uranus
The Moon appears Full and is exactly full at 7:02 am EDT on Monday, the Solstice. In the USA, it's Father's Day, and an adventurous one. Travel will be busy and could be challenging so prepare for that. In general, I see this as a good weekend to prepare for anything, bring extra supplies, have a pet or child sitter in case you need to spend an extra night, .... It's a good day to put effort into making money or creating other abundance. See what resources are available. Expect to work for what you receive though. Do active or competitive things for Dad's day. A good, spontaneous game you haven't played lately may be a fun way to spend time together. Sagittarius is also the philosophy sign and interesting conversations happen today (but politics may be a topic of caution). World news could peak and be top of mind. Let's hope it's all peaceful. Today's color is red.
