Monday the 20th
The Virgo Moon trines heart-felt, artistic Venus in the early morning and sextiles transformational Saturn in Scorpio in the late afternoon. There is a framework here of cooperation and a laser-like focus that can help us work out the nitty- gritty details that must be dealt with, in order to make headway with whatever we are working on. It’s a day when you can plow through your “what I want to manifest” to-do list and feel good about your progress. Tuesday the 21st

Tuesday the 21st
The Moon enters Libra just before 8 AM and will trine the Aquarius Sun before lunch, supporting a cooperative environment for meetings and group decisions. This is a great time to bring opposing opinions to a peaceful outcome. The Libra energy strives for balance and can sometimes get snared in indecision. The energy will shift tomorrow, so do what you can to settle things today!

Wednesday the 22nd
This is a day to watch your behavior and keep choosing the high road! The Mirrored Self experiences are in overdrive. The Moon is playing bumper cars with the Grand Cardinal Cross, as she opposes Uranus, squares Pluto, then Jupiter, then Venus… from the wee hours until 1:06 PM. The day is full of opportunities to see how reactive you or someone else is. Fear based, power struggles, judgmental behavior, defensiveness and excessive melodrama all represent the lower frequency of these combined transits.

Discovering new ways to observe our emotional reflexes and seeing how we can stay in our center no matter what, this is the opportunity available on the high road today. Watch out for going over the top to please another as the Sun squares the Moon’s Nodes, adding more agitation to an already frictional day.

The energy calms down with the Moon’s trine to Mercury at 7 PM. Take a moment or two to ease up on yourself and anyone else around. Look for what is newly awakened in your perception. The Libra Moon will conjunct Mars at 10:50 PM and it’s not a time to push for resolutions, but it is excellent for really looking at all relationship issues that emerged today and seeing clearly, your part in it.

Thursday the 23rd
The Moon is VOC (Void of Course) until it enters Scorpio at 4:43 pm when we shift our emotional focus from what is fair and balanced to what we deeply desire. So most of the day we are provided with a chance to go inward, to allow things to be as they are, to accept where we are in our process without judgment. Take advantage of this and intend to connect to Divine Feminine energy. Owning our projections, seeing our reflection in everything we see and looking for the beauty all around us, is the best use of this energy, prior to the Moon’s move into Scorpio.
The watery Scorpio Moon is deep, intuitive and emotional. There is a desire to connect profoundly and authentically and the conscious work we did earlier today may have paved the way for a profound connection, when the Moon trines Neptune in Pisces at 11:56 PM.

Friday the 24th
Between midnight last night and 10 this morning, the Scorpio Moon squared the Aquarius Sun, illuminating any discrepancies between our heart’s desire and our mind’s ideals. Look for clarification and steer clear of stubbornness. The rest of the day takes an uplifting turn, starting with Mercury in Aquarius trining Mars in Libra around 10 AM. We are able to see objectively without the emotional charge and harmonious thoughts about the future come pouring in. This is a great time to make plans and take action!

The Moon trines Chiron around 1 PM bringing healing and a sense of wholeness to our emotional body. We are soothed by more harmonious aspects for the rest of the day, when the Moon connects to Pluto, Jupiter and Venus. Overall this could feel like the best day of the week and the evening is ripe for compatible connections.

Saturday the 25th
The Moon goes VOC (Void of Course) at 8:55 AM and remains so until late tonight when she moves into Sagittarius. This is an inward day, hanging out in nature and spending more time “Being” and less “Doing” is recommended. Mercury squares Saturn just after sunrise, then the Moon and Saturn join up in Scorpio, setting a serious tone that can make for a challenging day if you try to push anything.
The key is to use this time to look deep for solutions and stay away from focusing on the negative. Traditionally this aspect can undermine confidence with self doubt and struggling to say what we mean.

From a higher place, it resonates as an opportunity to clarify and remodel our communication skills and to see where our self talk needs cleaning up. Take steps to evolve your thinking. The Moon leaves the deep waters of Scorpio and moves into inspired Sagittarius at 10:13 PM, bringing optimism and exploration to the mix. Dreams will be expansive.

Sunday the 26th
The week ends on an upbeat note,with the hopeful Sagittarius Moon sextiling the Sun in the morning and trining Uranus just after lunch. This is a welcomed relief after the more emotionally challenging aspects that occurred midweek. It’s a day to get out and do something new, follow your passion and let curiosity open doors. Let yourself smile a lot today!
