Happy Sunday Everyone! This month is quickly coming to a close for us and this week in particular could have some challenges for us mid week. But today is an easy day for us with a positive thinking Sagittarius Moon in play, along with a few upbeat lunar aspects. When we have upbeat and happy Moon energies, people tend to feel good as well, so make the most of it today! Now, let’s see what this week has in store for us.

Monday continues that upbeat vibe, but just before midnight the Moon goes Void of Course. Void of Course Moons are best for tackling those humble, around the house tasks, but not so good for making any decisions of importance. This will last into the early morning of Tuesday, when the Moon moves into Capricorn. In Capricorn our emotional charge seems to decrease as our feelings of duty and responsibility move to the fore. We tend to become more practical and logical, as well as more demanding and less sensitive to others and ourselves. We also have a trine between Mercury and Jupiter, which brings an ease of communication that we can take advantage of today. We will need this supportive mental energy as we get into mid week!

Wednesday is where our challenges begin. We have a square between Mars and Pluto going on, which means we have some strong forces at work and the pressure is on. Power struggles could erupt now and this is not a good time to force situations that just don’t want to budge by using a “bull in a china shop” mentality. Mars is all about taking the right action if it is used in a positive way. Mars gives us that push we need to make changes in our lives. Pluto helps us to be in our own power by allowing us to release anything that needs to go. But if you find a need to release something or someone from your life is necessary to your growth and well being, do so, just find a gentler and kinder way to do it. It may be helpful to find the appropriate outlets necessary, like physical activities, to help us relieve the stress we may be feeling now.

Thursday starts off with a Void of Course Moon, which will be with us for most of the day, so try not to make any major decisions until later in the evening, when the Moon moves into Aquarius. Aquarius supports social interaction and romance. It brings us feelings of openness with a sense of inner freedom. Our emotions become more alive and we feel we can express them more freely. What we can’t cope with are limitations being imposed upon us or pressure from others because our main focus is on our inner feelings of independence. We tend to have a sense of emotional coolness or detachment at the personal level, combined with an emphasis on idealism: such is the nature of the cycle we are now entering. We have a tendency to allow ourselves more freedom.

Early Friday morning brings a supportive sextile between Mercury and Saturn, a transit that can help us to bring mental and disciplinary influences together to create a balanced atmosphere for working together. Our focus is on bettering situations around us so it makes a good time for taking stock of what needs to be corrected or adjusted in our lives. Saturn’s discipline to thinking gives that gentle nudge needed to focus on and work on the small details rather than just looking at the big picture. It’s a good time to focus our energy on completing those difficult tasks we may have been putting aside till now. You may just find that those blocked situations can now be resolved more easily.


Saturday continues with that social Aquarius energy until the early evening, so anything social like that you plan on doing is best done before then. The Moon will then go Void of Course until the wee hours of Sunday morning. Sunday sees the Moon and Mercury both moving into Pisces. This is a Pisces New Moon. When we have a New Moon we also have the Sun in the same sign, which is why these energies are so focused and potent. For those who do energy and spell work, the New Moon is the perfect time for setting intentions for the things you wish to create, cultivate, manifest and develop. Its energies differ from the Full Moon in that the New Moon looks inward. In Pisces, it’s a good time to look at where we may be scattering our energies right now. We are not inclined to want to face reality while the Moon is in dreamy, impressionable Pisces. It can be a wistful, sensitive, intuitive, and compassionate time. We are especially imaginative, and our intuition reigns under this influence. Boundaries and walls come down, as Pisces energy merges and blends. It’s a time when details are overlooked and feelings defy description.

When Mercury is in Pisces, our thinking processes become visual, intuitive, and imaginative. Our brainy Mercury is less interested in the facts and more in touch with feelings at this time. We are more attuned to the world of emotion, and it colours both our thoughts and our communication style. This transit serves poets, artists, healers, spiritual seekers and all those who don’t rely on objective evidence to shape reality. One negative under this transit however is that managing details can be more difficult with airy Mercury in this watery sign. We may be more impressionable and more open to ideas that, before we may have considered down right silly.

We also have a conjunction between the Sun and Uranus. Spontaneity, surprises, and expecting the unexpected are what this transit is all about today. We feel more open to new experiences than usual and more open-minded to new and unusual perspectives. People and situations that take you away from your customary routine can reveal another side of life to you and we may just surprise others, or ourselves. It’s a time where we can let our wacky and eccentric side shine and our sense of humour thriving. We do need to be careful though that we don’t take that one step too far into reckless behaviour. Our creativity can come in bursts and in unexpected ways, so it may be a good idea to use this to its full advantage when an opportunity presents itself. If you can’t do anything with it now, write it down for consideration in the future.
