Weekly Astrology February 2nd to 8th, 2015

Monday: Sun trine Uranus

The Sun and Uranus align as the Moon is near full. Uranus also contacts the Full Moon tomorrow. This planet brings surprises, deconstructs in order to make way for brand new things, and can add to any kind of instability.  News breaking early this week throws us off in some cases, however it may also be welcome and seem overdue. Aquarius Sun and Uranus in Aries lead to original ideas and inventive solutions, news about radical changes that may include changing of the guard in leadership positions and new systems to replace the current ones. Scientific thinking is favored today. Leo Moon moves in at 12:41 pm ending a void of course Moon in Cancer. The Moon is full in Leo tomorrow at 6:09 pm. Saturn in Sagittarius aligns with the Moon to organize us around educational and travel plans and structure even the wildest ideas. Today's color is orange.

Tuesday: Leo Full Moon

The Moon is Full at 6:09 pm ET in Leo, sign of children, creativity and luck. The Moon is opposite Mercury and the Sun and trine to Uranus. Optimistic and eventful, the Full Moon sheds light that leads us to decisions, stirs passions, and revolves around children, parenting and self expression. News isn't always easy to adjust to, so let things process and swirl around before making judgments, especially with Mercury retrograde for one more week. Cancer and Capricorn, financial and legal things are highlighted.  Leo and Aquarius, your long term relationships and commitments are up for discussions and renewal.  Aries and Libra, this may be a romantic, friendship focused, and overall interesting Full Moon for you. Gemini and Sagittarius, communication, education and travel plans are in the spotlight. More signs included in tomorrow's forecast. Today's color is gold.

Wednesday: Full Moon

Full Moon vibes, news, and developments continue. Leo Moon is void of course all day from 12:31 am ET until 12:46 am Thursday.  The Moon and Jupiter meet for luck, growth, abundance and intelligence. The other qualities may include drama and exaggeration. See forecasts above for how your sign may experience any of that. Pisces and Virgo, this Full Moon and Jupiter relate to your routine, your health, and ability to focus. Get centered on yourself and what you need. Taurus, home and family are the driving force whether you're moving, making changes, or resolving a relationship matter. Scorpio, career opportunity or recognition is likely for you. Go for the lead role. Today's color is purple. 

Thursday: Virgo Moon

Mercury and Saturn align on this Virgo Moon day. Mercury is still retrograde, however options and solutions may become clear just past the Full Moon. Educational options, travel plans, and significant discussions are some of the results as these two planets connect. It could be a time for a trial basis and flexible arrangement that may become permanent once you see how it works.  The Moon squares Saturn and opposes Neptune. Do your best to see things for what they are versus what appears on the surface. Use your instincts for what's real versus fabricated. Today's color is black. 

Friday: Oppositions

Three oppositions tell today's story. Venus and Mars in Pisces oppose the Moon and the Sun is opposite Jupiter. Sun and Jupiter bubble with enthusiasm, friendship, love, collaborations, and generosity. The Moon opposite Mars can be moody. Venus increases the relationship aspect particularly for Virgo, Pisces, Taurus and Scorpio. Oppositions relate to the extremes, and your experience will be colored by what's going on for you. Expect things to be amplified. Void Moon from 5:09 pm to 1:44 pm Saturday. Today's color is pink.

Saturday: Libra Moon

The Moon moves to Libra at 1:44 pm after a void of course time. Morning may be confusing or it might just be hard to get moving. The Moon aligns with Mercury retrograde and with Saturn. Rethinking the past and structuring your next actions with a plan makes sense today. Look at possibilities and leave some flex to the plan until after the 11th. There's a call to be as honest and fair as possible. Both will create more ease in the  long run. Today's color is lavender.

Sunday: Libra Moon

Libra Moon squares Pluto and opposes Uranus. Confrontations happen without notice. Problems will generally be related to what's not fair or balanced.  Not all of us will experience this. It will tend to be part of a long term pattern. Venus and Pluto align for deep insights about love and relationship. If you're not acknowledging how you truly feel, today it may be hard to escape.   Meaningful actions and conversations can be the result of these two planets in harmony. Today's color is black.

Weekly Astrology January 26th to February 1st, 2015

Monday: Taurus Moon

The Moon starts void of course 9:23 to 11:37 am ET in Aries and shifts to Taurus. Those hours are prone to rushing and scrambling to pull things together. Moon and Venus put us in social moods, and it will be a challenge to focus or get the group down to the business at hand. Taurus Moon improves focus, slows us down (which complements the Mercury retrograde we're in), and aligns with Neptune for ability to take imaginative ideas and express them with construction, art, music and writing to name a few possibilities. Today's color is pink.

Tuesday: Taurus Moon

Taurus is an earth sign grounded in handiwork, building and manifesting.  The Moon is contacted by Mercury retrograde for overdue discussions that lead to action. Though you may be tempted to enter a long term agreement under these aspects, a trial basis is best until after February 11th. Jupiter also squares the Moon from Leo and we aim for growth and bringing things to fruition. It's a good time to get back to a project you want to successfully complete, in due time. Mars in Pisces aligns harmoniously with the Moon adding to the creative and emotional tones in the air. Do something cathartic. Mercury retrograde is a time for process. Channel feelings into productive things like cooking, doing the dishes, making art, and writing your memoir. Void of course Moon is from 9:18 pm ET to 5:36 pm Wednesday. Today's color is green.

Wednesday: Void of course Moon

The Moon is in that void of course transition time and it can create a bit of a fog. Mercury is retrograde too, so judgement calls may be unreliable. Second guessing is a good thing right now. News comes fast and furious with Mercury and Uranus aligned. Ingenuity, originality and the unusual are results of those two teaming in Aquarius and Aries. Act slowly and thoughtfully though. Write down insights for future action. The Gemini Moon is opposite Saturn and square to Venus tonight, testing our close relationships and ability to listen and negotiate fairly and honestly. Today's color is yellow. 

Thursday: Gemini Moon

This part of the week is full of itself. I'm laughing and serious at the same time. News may be unexpected or weird during this Gemini Moon. It might be hard to know what to think or believe. People may demand quick responses. Don't go down that road. Take your sweet time and find your inner peace as well as something reasonable with others who can't quite do that. Having said that, it's a very social day as the Moon aligns with Mercury and the Sun, and you could enjoy the company of funny, entertaining, happy friends including people you haven't seen in a long while. Today's color is white. 

Friday: Gemini Moon Void of Course

The Moon is void from 4:24 am ET until Saturday 2:09 am. Take your time in every way. Read a book that expands your perspective or take a short journey out of town. The more you can flow with whatever comes up, the better. The Sun and Mercury retrograde meet for revisiting people and places from the past. This is an expressive conjunction and some announcements will come retroactively. What you expected months or weeks ago becomes public on days like this.  Teamwork is favored. Mars and Pluto align for some serious insight. Aries, Capricorn, and Scorpio experience this most personally while Virgo is most likely to come to realizations about relationships and friendships. It's a Mercury retrograde peak. Today's color is silver.

Saturday: Cancer Moon

Cancer Moon turns us toward personal priorities, life at home, and family matters of all kinds.  Clean the house, bake a cake, and find uplifting things to do. It's a slow down time, but during Cancer Moon you don't want too much sluggish energy to take over. Drink lots of fresh water and eat nourishing foods. The belly can be sensitive during Cancer Moon time. Notice what you're taking in. The environment will also have an effect on mood. Aim for comfort and soothing. Venus and Neptune in Pisces align with the Moon for romance and creativity. It's a good date night. Today's color is light blue.

Sunday: Cancer Moon Void of Course

The Moon is void of course from 8:37 am until 12:41 pm Monday ET. Interesting day for the big game in the USA since errors in judgement, forgetfulness and lack of focus are likely. The Moon opposes Pluto and squares Uranus. This always makes for challenging times related to recurring patterns. Uranus is the wild card and brings on what's not expected or what we may not be ready to deal with.  Venus and Neptune meet in Pisces for love and heart. Cancer, Pisces and Virgo are most likely to be in the midst of a happily romantic weekend. We are also close to the Full Moon and emotions are heightened. Try to be understanding this weekend even if you're irked. Today's color is white.

Monday: Void of course Moon

Moon in Capricorn is void from 5:54 am to 7:59 am on Tuesday. It's a great vacation day and a good time to get organized and clean. Today is not the most favorable for shopping though you may be tempted. Make sure you can exchange what you buy. Back up files now since Mercury retrograde begins Wednesday. Save receipts and give yourself lists, prompts and a calendar to keep track of appointments and when bills are due. Venus opposes Jupiter and may be pleasurable for lovers and those of you growing businesses, especially creative ones. Mars and Neptune activate imagination, dreams, and the ability to make tangible things from wild ideas. Build or create something today. It's the last full day of Capricorn birthdays, the day before New Moon and a natural time to be reconsidering a decision you thought was final. Wear navy blue.

Tuesday: New Moon in Aquarius, Sun in Aquarius

Aquarius activity has been going on for weeks with Mercury and Venus, and now the Sun moves in at 4:43 am. New Moon in Aquarius arrives at 8:14 am ET. Aquarius energizes community, friendship, and inventive ideas. A good blend of scientific and intellectual thinking and personable, extroverted, and creative traits is the beauty of a strong Aquarius time. The "new" of this New Moon may be more about reinventing and rediscovering. It's a time to going back to see what's relevant again and might be renewed. That includes relationships, but do so cautiously and without promises until after February 11th. Mercury retrograde begins tomorrow. Find some structure to support your dreams and pursuits. That includes wise advice under the influence of Saturn in Sagittarius. Today's color is light blue.

Wednesday: Mercury retrograde in Aquarius

Mercury retrograde is official at 10:54 am. We've been experiencing the foreshadow of this time for days now. Today is full of news, communication, and surprises. Think before you respond and sift through information for truths, fallacies, and what's questionable. Take your time for these three weeks. Be particularly cautious with what you promise and what you spend money on. It's not a good time for a bet or risk. Venus in Aquarius makes this a very likely time for reuniting with a lover. Do that with few expectations and on a trial basis, if that's relevant to you. Leo, Aquarius, and Libra are in line for that experience as well as renewing vows and considering decisions and next moves with "the one you're with".  Jupiter is opposite the Moon today sending blessings and joy and reminding us that growth is possible. Today's color is pink.

Thursday: Pisces Moon

The Moon meets both Neptune and Mars for a burst of Pisces spirit. This includes the ability to sense and feel, even without physical proof. You might feel more intuitive or emotional. Channel feelings into building, creating or even cleaning. Growth as a result of inner processes and understanding is favored now. Mercury is retrograde and anything from the past that crops up can provide deeper insight, healing or release from the past.  Mars in Pisces can agitate if you have nothing productive or cathartic to devote your energy to. Hot baths, swimming, meditation and yoga are some ways to detox and cleanse anything you don't need hanging around in the psyche or the body.  The Moon and Saturn align for stability in the face of change. Bring some order and sense to what you're feeling. Advice from reliable sources is one way to do that. Today's color is green.

Friday: Sun sextile Saturn

Aquarius Sun and Saturn in Sagittarius combine for logical thinking and action today.  Do what makes sense, especially if it's something you decided weeks ago and are now ready to act on. Mercury is retrograde so leave yourself a little loophole if you need to change course in a few weeks.  The Pisces Moon aligns with Pluto and we face feelings and fears, hopefully with optimism and a different perspective. Own it, so it doesn't prevent you from growth, change, or optimum health. The Moon is void of course 6:13 am ET until 8:31 am Saturday. This day is meant more for relaxation than for taking a lot on. Find your flow and be gentle and sensible.  Today's color is blue.

Saturday: Aries Moon

There's a push pull today and Sunday that may feel more prominent toward the later part of the weekend. Aries Moon aligns with the Sun for confidence and innovation. Saturn weighs in from Sagittarius urging higher level thinking and educational experiences. That can include learning from the trials and challenges of life.  What can you step up to, face courageously or, on the other hand, not collapse into. It's a day to stay strong.  Red is our color.

Sunday: Aries Moon

Aspects between the Moon and Pluto, Mercury, and Jupiter activate some familiar patterns. The Moon also meets Uranus, in a monthly conjunction.  Part of life that's been a challenging or wild, unpredictable ride for a long while now surfaces again for some of us. On days like this, respond carefully or not at all. Try not to let someone press those hot buttons that result in anger or fear.  Brush things off at least for the moment.  People often know they're pressing your buttons. Don't give them the satisfaction or visibly irritating you.  Mercury and Jupiter align with the Moon in a more social, fun way. Mercury is reconnecting old friends. Jupiter has the influence of luck, but this is not a good time to take chances. Just accept good fortune as it comes. Today's color is yellow.

Weekly Astrology January 12th to January 18th, 2015

Monday: Mars in Pisces

Mars moves to Pisces at 5:20 am. Ruler of fire sign Aries and co-ruler of Scorpio, Mars is not super comfortable in this emotional sign. However, creative projects can really get going and with Mercury close to retrograde now it's a fine time to enter that process. Pisces, you may feel more active and motivated or agitated for the next several weeks. Try to use that to your advantage. For all of us, channel feelings (even the not so positive ones) into tangible work, like painting, drawing, creating or even building. The Moon is in Libra with a mix of influences from other planets, so this is a day of variety, positive communication and possibly strong opposition. Libra is the sign of peace so a truce may be called for in situations where agreement can't be found. Let it go peacefully or step back at least for a couple of days. Today's color is pink.

Tuesday: Void of course Moon

The Moon is void of course at 4:46 am until 6:44 pm ET. Our judgment is compromised and impulsiveness could have a domino effect. Act rationally and deliberately. Venus and Uranus align and relationship status changes and other alliances may seem surprising. Unusual friendships form or become public. The Scorpio Moon arrives at 6:44 pm and connects with Mars in Pisces. Move into your personal process, channel into creative things, listen to music, take photos, tap into intuition and find meaning. Today's color is red.

Wednesday: Mercury sextile Uranus

Mercury and Uranus's combined energy adds up for inventive ideas, sudden clarity, and also unexpected news.  The surprise element present yesterday continues.  The Moon is in Scorpio so some of this may involve puzzles and mysteries and new information surrounding them. Scorpio is the investigative sign with a strong dose of psychic feeling. Go with a hunch. Debates may be stubborn with the Moon and Mercury squaring in Scorpio and Aquarius, two fixed and opinionated signs. Any sign may feel this way or experience this including Libra about money matters and risk taking ventures and Gemini about workplace issues or changing routines.  Tonight the Moon and Venus square and this translates into home life and relationships as well. If you know someone's opinion is strong this may not be the night to try and change his or her mind. Today's color is indigo blue.

Thursday: Mars squares Saturn

Mars in Pisces squares Saturn in Sagittarius and there's much ado about change. Things could get emotional and dramatic around shifting situations even if they're all decided and for the best. How much structure and how much freedom or leeway is needed is part of the discussion. Emotional, sentimental feelings won't sync with cold or bold attitudes. Scorpio Moon squares Jupiter in Leo and is void of course from 6:52 pm on. It's a better not to press for answers or repeatedly try to get in touch. Some will want quiet, alone time tonight, although the evening may be more relaxed overall. Today's color is black.

Friday: Sagittarius Moon

At 3:01 am ET the Moon shifts to Sagittarius, sign of the archer. Take aim at a change in scenery today or over the weekend. Refresh your outlook. Shift relationships by adventuring together. Try to avoid boredom or feeling stuck. Cancer and Pisces, this is true for you at work while  Leo may need to get out and have a good old time with friends.  The Moon meets Saturn bringing up the business of educational and travel planning as well as the need for honesty. Today's color is turquoise.

Saturday: Sagittarius Moon

The Moon aligns with Jupiter, Venus and Mercury for a 5 star kind of day. Leo and Aquarius host those planets now, and the air and fire signs may especially enjoy all of this! It's a good day for gatherings, road trips and festivities. Do have a plan B since some things may happen very spontaneously including no-shows. Live in the moment. Take time for fun. Today's color is purple.

Sunday: Capricorn Moon

This is the practical day of the weekend. The Moon aligns with Mars and Neptune in Pisces, softening the administrative aspect of the day with some room for art, feelings and dreams.  Do something tangible with those or other business that needs attending to. Studies, finances, organization and other things that make life feel more managed and clear are favored.  We are close to Mercury retrograde and bigger decisions should be well considered and thought out. Or wait until after February 11th. Today's color is gray.

Sunday, January 4, 2015

Weekly Astrology January 5th to 12th, 2015

Monday: Void of Course Moon in Cancer

The Moon was Full Sunday night and is void of course until Tuesday morning. Mercury and Saturn align to bring order and stability. Remind yourself, or someone else caught up in emotion or confusion, to take a few breaths before responding or overreacting. Saturn in Sagittarius and Mercury in Aquarius make an intelligent pair and help us sort things out, communicate honestly and directly, and find clarity. Speak your truth without blame. Find your allies and support team and explore options if decisions must be made imminently. Aquarius and Sagittarius, and other air and fire signs, may work well together and gather to get things done. Cancer, this Full Moon is quite personal and may include dealing with people you're unsure about. Release other people's judgments or irrational words and do what you do best. Aries, Capricorn and Cancer may want to yield some and try not to criticize or let criticism take you down.  Family and relationship issues and other ongoing unresolved issues may be up for resolution again. Mercury and Saturn help move out of pure emotion and impulsiveness and into more rational thinking and believing. Today's color is white.

Tuesday: Leo Moon

At 6:03 am ET the Moon moves to Leo. A rush of fire energy motivates and inspires. If yesterday was slow, confusing or chaotic, enjoy a very different vibe of optimism and action. To best align with this Leo Moon opposite Mercury and Venus, listen to each other, be willing to learn or try something, and compromise or find agreeable neutral plans that include some concessions. Leo Moon with Aquarius planets urge collaboration, community, and friendship. Having an open mind helps, while always trusting instincts where people are concerned.  Friendly, but somewhat detached and not too personal, might be the way to go if you're unsure how much to trust or get involved with a group or individual. Leave some time for play, creative pursuits, and connecting with friends or colleagues today. Leo and Aquarius, make relationship a priority. Wear purple today. 

Wednesday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon aligns with Uranus for exciting developments, recreating, and an element of the unexpected. Have plan B or C ready. See if changes might actually lead to better results.  It will be hard to hold on or stay trapped in a way of thinking or doing. Scrap a plan that's not working in favor of an alternate way. Today's color is red. 

Thursday: Leo Moon

Leo Moon is productive and could be prosperous as Moon and Jupiter meet in Leo at 12:07 am. Act on things you're hoping for. Be positive, assertive, and willing to learn. From 12:03 to 5:58 pm the Moon is void of course. Roll with the positive and try to keep momentum. Time off or time to celebrate and have fun could be built into the afternoon. Honor or recognize someone. Leo and Scorpio are two that might get recognition today. Shopping is not well timed 12:03 to 5:58 once the Moon opposes Mars, however earlier or later is decent for purchases. Get technical and significant upgrades done now before Mercury retrogrades later this month (21st). The Virgo Moon also favors study, writing, working with numbers, and organizing things in the evening.  Today's color is black.

Friday: Virgo Moon

The Moon opposes Neptune and aligns with Pluto. Be more realistic, try not to overlook problems or details. Confront situations with solutions rather than just criticism.  Attend to details, obligations and promises, and practical matters of life. Navy blue is today's color. 

Saturday: Virgo Moon trine Capricorn Sun

The Moon and Sun align in earth signs. That often means productivity and practical action and can help confidence in decisions. The Moon is void of course from 10:46 am on through the day and evening, so take it slow, double check and have someone edit your work or check your facts.  Get physical exercise and consider cleaning and repairing things that aren't too complex. Today's color is brown.

Sunday: Libra Moon

The Moon moves to Libra at 6:57 am and aligns with Saturn in Sagittarius today. Reasons to be more honest and fair become obvious.  Situations that need to be negotiated and where someone needs to give in a bit may benefit from these planets now. Saturn is wise and worldly in Sagittarius. Libra Moon is always geared toward one on one relationships with anyone you consider a partner. Find mutual agreement. Today's color is blue.
