Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you had a good week and your weekend has been relaxing. We have a Libra Moon with us today, which is great for social sharing. Its a day for pampering ourselves and others, so put it to good use. Let’s have a look at what the coming week has in store for us.
Monday brings us a harmonious sextile between Venus and Uranus, an unpredictable transit that can have us feeling excited about the social aspect of our lives. Enjoyment can pop up when we least expect it now. Keep in mind that the Moon will be Void of Course in the early evening, so sharing on a deeper level can be light and friendly now. This is also a good time for standing apart from the crowd if you want to attract the types of people you wish to be around. Highlight your unique qualities and let them shine now. Oh, and do be careful that you don’t allow boredom to push you towards doing anything too reckless.
Tuesday starts off with the Moon moving into broody Scorpio, where emotional charge and sensitivity increases. It’s 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.
Wednesday is a quiet one for us that is supportive of sharing on a deeper level the things we may feel most vulnerable about. Thursday kicks off energy that is good for parties. We have the Moon moving into upbeat Sagittarius, which also gravitates towards enjoying the outdoors and philosophical discussions. We tend to become a bit more orderly and calm, are ready to follow routines and rules and have a need for giving and receiving advice and recommendations. We may find an increase in our interests in social life and where we fit in. It does, however, put us in a risk-taking mood. A need to be in motion makes us very restless if we get bogged down with mundane chores. It’s a good time for speaking our truth, saying it like it is, but we also need to be careful that our words don’t come out with blunt force. The best way to enjoy and us this lunar energy is to keep it light and upbeat. We also have an opposition happening between Mercury and the North Lunar Node, which can have us dwelling on the past in ways that tend to block us from finding our true future path in life. So we need to find that balance between past and future and let go of what is holding us back from our future destiny while keeping what is helping us.
Friday brings us a Sun/Jupiter square, where we feel a bit more enthusiastic and upbeat, inspired to expand ourselves well beyond our usual boundaries. This can work for some and not work for others, because we run the risk of reaching far beyond our means, even promising more than we can actually give. This can be a challenging time where important lessons could emerge that help to expand the limits of our true beliefs. We also have a conjunction between Mercury and the South Lunar Node, where we are pushed to release old ideas and perceptions that just get in the way of our ability to see things clearly. During this process, we may need to let go, communicate and share our observations of the past six months, or maybe even compare some notes with another about things we have been mulling over for a while.
Saturday brings relationship planet Venus into dreamy Pisces, where she will be until March 6th. This brings us a romance/fantasy combo, but we need to make sure we are seeing people for who they truly are now, not just how we want to see them. It is a transit where romance and compassion are enhanced in our relationships. It’s a really great energy for those who are artists, writers, musicians, or anyone who deals in the art of imagination.
Sunday morning sees the Moon shifting into Capricorn, where 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. It’s a good day for setting out plans. This can be a very sober influence–even a depressing one. However, it can also be a productive time when we look reality in the face.
