Moon = Gemini > Virgo
This week’s theme is of faith, escape, joy and expansion. The Sun travels through the second decan of Pisces which is associated with the 9 of Cups card in the Tarot. The 9 of cups shows us how to harness the emotion of joy within regardless of disappointments. How do you maintain your heart in situations where extenuating circumstances test your faith? What is your philosophy on love?
This week Venus and Jupiter make contact and we will have a fresh start regarding our personal beliefs around the energy of love and what it truly means to us. Renew and recognize your love for life, certain relationships, the work you do or even the mundane parts of existence. Notice the small things that cater to your sense of connectedness. This week Mercury ingresses into Pisces, opening up our minds to other dimensions of reality. The mind seeks to see itself manifest through visions, dreams, and imagery that communicate the oneness of all.
Acknowledge what your avoidance tendencies are this week and learn to quell the need to retreat within, shutting out the world.
The waxing square Moon in Gemini conjuncts the great motivator, beckoning us to choose a directive. Put your mind to it and have faith in the process. Initiating conversations, a small adventure, and getting a little lost in one’s own curiosity makes for a new pathway to open. The deep insights are easier to recognize as long as the clutter has been thoroughly cleared away from the mind. Making sense of the senseless, don’t get too lost in the details.

Notice your dreams and any awareness’s that come throughout the day via random bits of information and motivational quotes. We often have synchronistic moments that are seemingly insignificant but play a deeper role in our personal development. The Moon is void of course after its last aspect to Saturn which crystalizes the data in a very no frills, straight forward kind of way. Slight adjustments to expectations help to ease the transition from a Gemini Moon to the emotionally charged Cancer Moon.

Our inner emotional realms are very tangible, palpable, and the desire to nurture ourselves is strong. Our beliefs around love, relationships and romance get a bit of an update with Venus making a conjunction with Jupiter. A renewed sense of optimism and faith is implanted to our ideologies. Notice where you are tending towards overcompensating emotional deficits with external validations.

Mercury shifts gears from logical Aquarius to dreamy Pisces while the Moon navigates the energy of Neptune today. We catch ourselves daydreaming and getting swept up in fantasy at times throughout the day but first not without a clear hard lesson from Saturn. We decide to escape or avoid the reality check or at the very least, try to imagine a more idealistic approach to streamlined facts. We may use escapism as a tactic when we feel stuck or mentally trapped. Connecting deeply with impactful stories and personal experiences from characters in movies, novels and even the news, which stirs empathy within.

A deep emotional purge comes to surface, recognize and remain within your own experiences. Work through any intensity by asking the reoccurring emotion what it would like to share. A catharsis surfaces for the purpose of acknowledging what had been stuffed away. The Moon shifts into Leo roaring with might, holding nothing back. Being validated and recognized is an influential energy which fuels the need to connect with others, friends, colleagues, partners etc. A new process of heart healing is initiated. We may be feeling a bit tender, self-conscious reaching out. Receive one another with compassion.
Moon opposite Pluto, Moon Voc 6:23 am – 7:14 am, Moon -> Leo at 7:15 am, square NN, Venus conjunct Chiron, semisquare Saturn, Saturn semisextile Pluto.
Unexpected desires remind us that our bodies still do indeed exist. Boldness is congratulated and admired; grand expressions of creative force inspire. The opportunity to open up and share ourselves is available through joy, fun and heart felt moments with the ones we love. We are captivated by glamour today and our distractibility is high but that might be a welcome change. Let go of inhibitions with being vulnerable. People want to see more of you today.

Getting down to business. The tension between having fun and getting work done is felt as the Moon ingresses into Virgo after making an opposition with Saturn. The nagging feeling of what is left undone sits in the back of our minds but the instinct to set pen to paper eventually kicks up. Notice your nerves today and mitigate any anxiety by getting organized with your tasks. There’s good opportunity to visualize and imagine a clear path forward.
