Happy Sunday everyone, and I hope you are enjoying the start of this new month. We have a fairly pleasant day today with the energies of a Libra Moon with us that makes it great for spending time with those we like and having an easy day. Enjoy it while you can! Let’s see what this week has in store for us.

Monday is a fairly quiet one for us, with a Void of Course Moon taking place just before midnight. Tuesday begins the build up to the Full Moon, with the Moon moving into brooding Scorpio in the morning. Scorpio is where emotional charge and sensitivity increases. Its a time where we need to be careful not to get swept away by irritability, mood-swings, hysteria, big and small excitements, and a sudden desire to quickly change everything. People tend to become more conscious of self and others, and see everything in dark tones with the Moon in Scorpio. We also have the Sun aligning with transformative Pluto today. Whether you’re clearing out your closet or flushing out your brain, this transit is the time for getting rid of whatever has become unnecessary or outworn in our lives. And this can be anything from an unhealthy relationship to old and outworn beliefs that are holding you back. Or you just may need to chuck the rubbish out of your work space. We get to see what’s below the surface in order to see things very clearly so don’t be surprised if you discover, or re-discover, something lost, hidden, or forgotten during this process either.

We also have the North Lunar Node moving into the sign of Leo today. For about a year and a half we will be learning about Leo’s fun, creativity, self expression and the celebration of life. We will do things in a more heart-felt way because we feel more inclined to give from the heart than giving because we feel obligated to do so. This will be a time for us to strengthen our sense of self in a way that allows us to feel fully in touch with who we are.

Wednesday brings us a Scorpio Full Moon but the Moon will go Void of Course late in the evening. Full Moon’s are great times for releasing, harvesting, and letting go. Intensity is what the Moon in Scorpio is all about. Whether it’s passion, elation, sorrow, or desire, emotions are felt on a deeply personal level. We are motivated by the desire to get to the bottom of things, and we instinctively read between the lines. Superficiality won’t work for us now. The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power, and it’s an excellent time to rid ourselves of old fears and limiting habits. It can be an intimate and passionate time. Avoid manipulative tactics, brooding, and suspiciousness. We also have a conjunction between mental Mercury and Uranus, a transit that brings about spontaneous, radical, and unusual means of thinking and communicating. It may compel us to speak our mind or say things that we felt unable to say before. It can also cause us to speak without first thinking our thoughts through. Our perceptions are more flexible and open-minded, and this can have us seeing things with our eyes wide open…which can be a bit of a shock to the system for some. On a positive note, this transits energy can set lose our creativity and inspire us, especially when we are looking ahead at our future. It’s a good energy for gatherings which can include community, family, friends and groups.

Thursday brings us a small challenge when Mars and Neptune square off. Part of us wants to go forward a mile a minute and another part of us just wants to slow things down so that we can process the action we are trying to take. Try to find a healthy balance between the two and you should get by just fine. We have a trine between Mercury and Saturn as well, a transit that is excellent for mental work that involves accuracy and precision. Under this transit it may be easier to take a more practical, logical approach to any goals that need a problem solving approach. We also have the Moon moving into optimistic Sagittarius this afternoon, bringing us a feeling of peace and stability.

Friday sees a harmonious trine between Mars and Jupiter, but we need to take care not to overdo things with this energy. With it’s more optimistic energy, Jupiter brings out the visionary within. Make sure you keep a pen and paper with you and write down all those ideas winging through your head. This way you can look at them later and see which are doable. You may even find a new solution to an old problem or two now. You might even find that luck comes your way because you are more receptive to opportunities and possibilities.


Saturday is a quiet one, but we still have the Moon in party animal Sagittarius, so make the most of that upbeat energy before Sunday. when the Moon goes Void of Course in the wee hours of the morning and then moves into the more serious sign of Capricorn ad dawn. 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. When the Moon is in Capricorn, we’re more serious minded. It’s harder to just hang out. We want to feel productive on something that has substance to it. These days are great for pushing past difficult obstacles. We’ve got extra discipline and patience. And we’re able to forgo the satisfaction of short term gains for longer term achievements. Lastly, we have a trine between Mercury and the North Lunar Node. This aspect brings us a fresher awareness as well as a better ability to communicate that awareness. It is a beneficial resource which can help us to take a few more steps closer towards out life purpose. Just bear in mind that we also need to take action too. We will need to, at some juncture, take into account what we have observed and do something with this.
