Happy Sunday everyone. Here we are, at the end of another month. Europe has been in winter mode this week..still. Let’s hope Spring starts to show itself soon. Today we are under the influence of a Cancer Moon, so we may feel like being homebodies or spending time with those we feel close to. It’s also a good day for sharing our insights with others with Mercury and Neptune in a conjunction. What we do need to watch out for is an argumentative energy coming from a square between Venus and Mars. Be clear in your communications where relationships are concerned. The start of the workweek looks like it will flow smoothly, so let’s see what this week has in store for us.

Monday is a quiet day in the skies as we start off, but the Moon will be going Void of Course Monday evening. Here is a basic rule to keep in mind when dealing with anything big during a Void of Course Moon: If you are trying to make something happen and want it to be a success, avoid the Void! There are some benefits we gain during these Void times. For example, its the best time for taking a break, kicking back and relaxing and pretty much doing anything that doesn’t really need too much of our attention or energy.

Tuesday morning sees the Moon moving into heart opening Leo, where we feel more energetic and optimistic. We feel like we can do anything! We crave compliments and appreciation and are generous with kind words to others. This Moon brings a cheery vibe, making it easier to be lifted out of the doldrums. Its a good time for presentations, celebrations and social events. You might want to leave the day open, and let your spontaneous mischievous child inside lead the way. We also have a sextile between Venus and Pluto going on, a subtly powerful and uplifting time for romantic/sexual relationships because our sense of attraction is very strong. The focus is on those close, one to one relationships which means these can benefit from moving to a deeper level. This can also be a time for financial profit as opportunities with institutions such as banks, the tax man, insurance, or anything that deals with collective funds open up for us.

Wednesday brings us some busy Mercury energy. We have a square between the communication planet and Mars to start. This transit is characterized by hot debates, fiery speech and lots of arguments. We may experience this in forms of conflict or we may find these exchanges as challenging yet stimulating. We just need to remember to pace all of that mental energy. One of the things we need to watch out for here is that we may have a really short fuse, as will others around us. We can get through this one by keeping a tight rein on our judgement and objectivity when having verbal duels. We can tap into this energy and use it to fan the flames of motivation or take our ideas and use them to generate some positive and constructive action. Mercury will also be sextile to Pluto, giving us a bit more insight and psychological understanding than usual. However, it also brings passion to our communication, which is now being fuelled by the Mercury/Mars transit. So we do need to be careful that our words don’t come out with more force than intended, especially in situations that require a bit of delicacy.

Thursday is the first day of a new month, and it kicks off under the influence of a practical Virgo Moon. When the Moon is in Virgo we instinctually gravitate towards practical activities. In an urge to set things right, we might easily find ourselves re-organizing and rethinking plans. Emotional satisfaction comes from solving problems, making order out of confusion, and helping others. This makes it a good time for doing routine work that requires precision, concentration on detail and hard work. Health matters might come into focus. Under a Virgo Moon, we can become more sensitive and vulnerable, especially in areas of the body like the intestines and lower abdomen. Its recommended that we go easy on our stomach with a balanced diet. We also have an upbeat trine between Venus and Jupiter, which can draw those to us who appreciate who we are and are willing to lend support. We may also feel as if we are finally getting some sort of break in life for the better.

Friday starts with a Mercury/Jupiter trine, where we may find ourselves more talkative, filled with more ideas and wanting to share these with others. It’s a really good time for stepping back in order to get a broader overview of projects we are working on, especially business-related ones. With all of these ideas flooding through it may be a good idea to write things down now so that we can develop them later. But right now we want to play with these ideas, turn them and twist them around…not manifest them just yet in the real world.  If you are prone to pessimism, this transit’s optimistic energy can neutralize that for a bit. Just before midnight, the Moon will go Void of Course.

WEEKEND

Saturday morning begins with a balancing Libra Moon, which creates this feeling of harmony and calm. We find we more easily connect to people, compromise is more likely and conflict less so. It’s a time when we find it easier to understand and relate to others. We tend to be polite and diplomatic, and would rather avoid arguments. Its a good day for pampering ourselves and those we feel close to.

Sunday is a busy one, starting off with a conjunction between the Sun and Neptune. With the Sun conjunct Neptune, it can be a time of heightened creative ability that draws us to that the unusual, unfamiliar, and little used resources of inspiration and channelling those into our self-expression. It’s not necessarily creative in an artistic sense but it will definitely involve taking a more inspired approach to challenges and problems before us. This transit’s energy will only be around for a few days so use it while you can, make the most of it and make sure that you are careful to make a reality check before you jump straight into any magical opportunities that your way. We have both Venus and Mercury in a conjunction with Chiron. We need to remember that words can wound as well as heal right now, so choose them wisely. Its also a time when unresolved issues and old wounds in both relationships and finances come to the surface, bringing the potential for healing and a fresh start.

Last we have a conjunction between Mercury and Venus, a transit that is marked by receptive awareness, positive social connections, and diplomatic communication. That means having to negotiate any contracts, agreements, or mutual plans will go a lot more smoothly because all parties are focused on mutual balance to achieve an outcome that benefits all. Its a good day for enjoying things of beauty and pleasure now, as we prefer to reflect on the beauty that is in our world and all around us. The areas of music, art, drama…anything that provides us with a pleasant diversion will draw our attention. Try to steer clear of any harsh energies if you can.
