Astrological shifts with this week's New Moon, and sign changes for both Mercury and Venus!
Sunday: The Moon moves to Gemini at 7:48 am EDT. Toss around new ideas and brainstorm, write down thoughts, verses and potential plans on this day before New Moon. New Moon is 6:02 am EDT on Monday and so, by sunrise, you could begin something new. Changes of plans are likely this week as priorities also shift. The mind may fluctuate significantly today and tomorrow. Venus aligns with Pluto today for relationship reality checks. This is more about what you inherently feel and know within yourself than it is about someone else's actions or behaviors. What do your instincts tell you? Today's color is Yellow.
Monday: Gemini New Moon 6:02 am EDT. Neptune squares the Moon and Jupiter opposes, all in the mutable signs. Change is in the air, yet there are obstacles to overcome, hurdles to jump, and leaps of faith required. Patience if things don't move as fast or smoothly as planned. It's a process. Today's color is White.
Tuesday: Void Moon 11:42 am to 12:17 pm EDT, in transition between Gemini and Cancer. Mercury moves to Cancer at 4:05 pm, but first a direct meeting with the Moon in Gemini at 11:42. This connection is like an important conversation you have before jumping into something new. Plans will be put in place and initiative taken. Cancer Moon moves us from the intellectual to the emotional realm. It also creates the conditions for planting and fishing, literally and metaphorically as well. Focus on family and abundance as well as self care. Today's color is Silver.
Wednesday: Cancer Moon makes connections with Mars in Cancer, Neptune in Pisces and Saturn in Capricorn. Water element, our emotions, dominate the day. Mars is uncomfortable in Cancer as Mars is fire and yang while Cancer is water and yin. Saturn in Capricorn is retrograde and all earth, realities and business like. Neptune in Pisces is quite the opposite, dreamy, imaginative and floating. So our interactions today may be challenging as others may be in a very different mode. This can create frustration or one running from what the other's agenda is. Creatively, this may be a dynamic day if you're without pressure to perform or produce and it 'just happens'. Today's color is Blue.
Thursday: Cancer to Leo Moon. The earliest hours include a Moon/Pluto opposition and Moon and Venus in harmony. Internal waters may stir then calm. Relationships, intimacy, and personal feelings set up an introverted beginning to the day. From 10:10 to 3:16 pm EDT the Moon will be void of course, and this time is best for routine or simplicity. Once Leo Moon arrives, fixed sign energy includes a square with Uranus. Stubborn personalities or strong feelings amplify. The evening could be party time or in some cases full of stumbling blocks including ego driven interactions. Today's color is Orange.
Friday: Mercury aligns with Uranus throwing in variable or blocks to what was 'supposed to happen'. Adjustments are necessary and some may be big and/or unplanned. News may have some people stunned and/or riled up. Leo Moon aligns with the Sun in Gemini for social gatherings, friendly meetings, and excitement. This may also help with optimism and resilience in the face of unexpected news or changes. Today's color is Gold.
Saturday: Leo Moon for the day, Virgo Moon for evening. Adjust for your time zone as the shift occurs with a short void Moon 5:23 to 5:45 pm EDT. Leo Moon harmony with Jupiter retrograde in Sagittarius and square to Venus in Taurus. Performers, travelers, and lovers feel the fire sign passion. Leo Moon and Venus in Taurus make for dynamic partnerships where significantly different approaches, strengths and talents combine. Later, Moon to Virgo 5:45 pm and also Venus to Gemini at 9:37 pm EDT. Venus in Gemini instigates flirtations and our social nature. Today's color is Purple.
