Thursday: Just past New Moon, this is an energized, active time. Mercury retrograde can put a hold on something or cause a bit of indecision, but you can still lay groundwork, consider options, do routine tasks and perhaps enjoy creative process without rushing. Taurus Moon lines up with Venus, ending her journey in Pisces, and with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. Going back to unfinished business, personal or professional makes sense. Can you find different perspective and possibilities this time? Taurus Moon void 9:18 pm to 9:39 pm EDT and then shifts to changeable Gemini. Today's color is Blue.
Friday: Gemini Moon meets Mars. Stay busy and productive, write, create and keep the body working so the mind doesn't move into overanalyzing mode. Avoid arguments since Mars could heat up verbal exchanges. Mercury and Uranus meet in Aries, which can also be overly aggressive or disruptive verbally. Events and news occur swiftly. Last minute plans may work out or drive you mad. Venus moves into Aries, sparking new interests in people or projects and possibilities. Today's color is Pink.

Saturday: Gemini Moon in harmony with Mercury and Uranus, two of yesterday's active planets. Life might be a roller coaster especially in terms of plans and communication. What was true or seemed to be may not seem the same today. Changes of mind, miscommunication, and the dual nature of Gemini feed into all of that. However, maybe today things seem easier or happen with more flow. Important debates takes place as the Moon opposes Saturn retro in Sagittarius. Listen to each other and don't steam roll over others' words or values. Void Moon 5:28 pm to 9:48 pm EDT. Cancer Moon moves in and squares Venus in Aries. Differences in love style may lead to a stalemate, or with understanding may lead to compromises. White is today's color.
Sunday: Cancer Moon aligns with the Taurus Sun and Neptune in Pisces. Being empathetic, understanding, nurturing, creative, and loyal will put you in harmony with the universe. At 11:23 pm EDT, the Moon squares Jupiter. Be fair in your dealings and in how you treat others, especially family. Today's color is Light Blue.

Monday: Cancer Moon starts out initially cranky or challenged by Pluto retrograde's opposition and by squares with Mercury retro and Uranus in Aries.
