3034556i3jnjxd307Happy Sunday everyone! We are getting near the end of another month and practically halfway through 2017. We have the Sun shift into the sign of the twins yesterday, and early this morning the Moon went Void of Course, and will move into Aries mid-morning. Don’t be surprised if the fiery energy of Aries wakes you early today and you feel a need to burn off some extra energy! Let’s take a look at what this week has in store for us.

Monday is a quiet one in the skies, but we still have that Aries energy with us that is quite active today. The Moon will actually be activating a lot of other planets today, and on days like this we need to just flow from one person or project to another, without getting ourselves hung up in any one thing.

Tuesday starts us off with a morning Void of Course Moon. A bit after noon the Moon makes its move into earthy Taurus, making the next couple of days great for accomplishing those practical tasks we have before us, especially those that we are finishing off. When the Moon moves into Taurus, we feel the tension of the past few days start to drop away. People tend to become calmer and peaceful. We feel secure and stable. There is also this tendency for our thoughts and reactions to slow down, making us feel a bit slow in getting ourselves going. This is the best time for taking care of the home, running errands, restocking supplies and tending to routine maintenance. Its best to hold off on important business now,as well as signing of contracts or important papers, because we may make mistakes due to a slowed down reaction and thinking process.

Wednesday is a fairly quiet day and afternoon. We have a Void of Course Moon in the late evening, which then moves into Gemini and begins our New Moon phase early tomorrow. We have an abundance of mutable signs right now, meaning these are signs that can adapt and be flexible, go with the flow (Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces..with Virgo being absent at this time).

Thursday brings the full impact of the Gemini New Moon. Now, Gemini is a curious sign that pushes us to want to explore new possibilities. And New Moons are a great time for starting new things. So it’s a time for stepping out of our comfort zones and comfy ruts to try new things and meet new people. In Gemini our basic instinct is to communicate, think, and learn. We are motivated by a desire for variety and by an instinctive curiosity. The Moon in Gemini is light-hearted, breezy, and curious, but it can also be restless and fickle. We have a challenging square aspect as well today, between Venus and Pluto. Under this transit we may find that our relationships and interactions tend to be a bit deeper, more intense and transformative. Other things that are affected are our sense of beauty, and any dealings around finances and material resources. Mainly, this transit can shed light on those problem areas in our lives that need to go through a bit of a transformative process in order to heal.

Friday is a quiet day for the most part, but still under that ever curious energy of the Gemini New Moon. Its a good one for being active and exploring if you get the chance.


Saturday starts off with a morning Void of Course Moon that will move into Cancer just after noon. You may feel that restless Gemini energy giving way to Cancer’s instinctive need for peace and quiet now. Its a favourable energy for food and family. Under Cancer’s influence people become more sensitive and go deeper into their inner world, which takes on more importance at this time than the outer world. A feeling of belonging and safety is what motivates us under this influence. The Moon feels right at home in the sign of Cancer, as it rules the sign. This Moon position has much healing potential. Although insular by nature, our feelings run deep, making it an ideal time to get in touch with what motivates us. We want roots; we crave a sense of intimate connection that will.

Sunday brings us a sextile between Mercury and Neptune, where our intuition runs high. We may feel more sensitive artistically, our imagination is stirred, and we have an increased appreciation for subtleties. We feel inspired and feel able to inspire others as well. It’s a very time creative, where our ideas seem to flow magically and makes a great time for literary and artistic projects. We do need to take care however, because it can be all too easy to get caught up in fantasizing and yearning for our hidden wishes. In some instances, we may want so badly to reach that stage where our outlook is magically and our intuition is inspired, that we allow ourselves to be deceived rather than let ourselves fall short of the things we are hoping for. Mainly, this is a good time for creativity, optimism, intuition and hope. We just need to make sure that we stay grounded.
