Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Moonscope for 1/29-2/4
It is eerie how accurate last weeks Moon Forecast played out for me on a personal level in my own life. I wrote last weeks Moonscope on Saturday, and by Thursday, almost like clockwork, I realized I had fallen into the energy of every Moon Aspect I had covered in the post I had written previous to any of the events occurring. Astrology is truly AMAZING!
I hope these Moon forecasts can give you some peace of mind as you move into your week. We always can choose how we respond to energy, but we are not always aware or in control of how it comes to form in our life. Energy is moving and constantly evolving, we project so much onto the world from the way we perceive and filter through our own experiences. An energy that disrupts one may influence and inspire another. I try to write my posts to apply to all kinds of people, and you can really decide how you want to use the energy in your own life to benefit you. There is always a valuable lesson in every obstacle.
Monday Jan 29th
Moon in Cancer
Cancer is ruled by the Moon so this is a comfortable placement to get our week started. However we may not be going into the week with a lot of energy. We could find ourselves hitting snooze an extra 10 times on the alarm clock and we may feel like bricks are tied to our feet as we step into work. We also may be a little on the overly sensitive side. It will be good to go easy on yourself as well as others and make sure you get a good nights sleep. Moon in Cancer days are always best for utilizing self care rituals. Spending time in water with a bath or doing spiritual work is advised
Strong Aspects during the day PST
Moon Trine Neptune in Pisces 7:20AM
The Moon in Cancer making a Trine to Neptune in Pisces enhances our intuitive and dream like state into the morning. We may feel ourselves in fantasy/day dream land, and if we are the creative type we may have a lot of new ideas around creative projects or feel a need to get working on them. It may be hard for us to feel grounded in the morning, we may feel like our brains are in a fog and very sensitive to the energy around us. Allow yourself to move slowly and take it easy.
Moon Opposition Pluto in Capricorn 6:34PM
This opposition challenges our beliefs about ourselves on the physical and psychological planes. We may be feeling emotionally off from our start to our week and overly sensitive to how others are perceiving us. We may feel a transformation beneath the surface taking place that we are not quite sure how to put our finger on. Chances are there are things that need to get done-priorities that need to be evaluated and old patterns of behavior that need to be broken through in order to gain clarity on what you may be neglecting. This transit also effects our health spiritually and physically and it will be important that we are evaluating whether our habits are beneficial to our over all health on all fronts. Take good care of yourself in the evening hours-make sure you eat a healthy dinner and do some meditation or light yoga for exercise. Getting grounded and focusing on some self care will be good to end your day with.

Moon Void of Course at 8:40AM, Moon enters Leo 10:53AM
With the Moon entering Leo we are only one day away from our big Super Blue Moon Eclipse on Wednesday. This gives us some time to settle into the emotional tides of Leo energy, which can be very intense and overly dramatic if we are not too careful. On the positive side it can be a great continuation of creative energy we may have been feeling from the day before. We may feel a need to share our feelings with others at this time and we may seek approval or recognition in some way throughout the day. Try to not let your ego or pride get in the way of what is truly going on. We may feel like there could be an emphasis on needing the spot light for work we are doing, but it would be best to recognize that this need is not always rooted in reality. Try to give yourself the love you seek from others before judging others on whether or not they are loving or acknowledging you the "right" way.

Moon Opposition Mercury in Capricorn 8:40AM
Sharing ideas and our creative endeavors may be on the forefront of our minds during this transit and it is a great morning to do so. There is room for potential gossip during this transit so you will want to mindful with what you say about others and to whom you say it.
Moon Trine Mars in Sagittarius 3:13PM
This transit also enhances our ability to push forward with our creative endeavors and our ideas. We may feel a huge spark of drive during this transit to establish our goals and our beliefs into what it is we are doing. We may feel determined to empower ourselves through our creativity and strong sense of self. We will feel a bit like we are recharged and finding our momentum again after a slow start to the week.

Lunar Eclipse, Super Blue Moon in Leo 5:27AM
A Blue Moon only happens once every 19 years.However, this year we have two! This day marks the first of our two Blue Moons of the year and is also a Super Moon, and a Lunar Eclipse, which is the first time this has happened all at once in 150 years! With this event coming up in Leo we may be feeling all kinds of transformations within taking place that may even bring up some similar issues we were working through during the Solar Eclipse in Leo back in August last year. This Moon will ask of us that we get really clear with our intentions for this next cycle. We need to really be moving away from self doubt and things that are no longer in line with the path we are meant to be on. During this Moon try to give yourself some down time to practice a letting go ritual. I wrote a separate blog over on theritualstore.com that will be explaining more in depth on what you can do for this transit. Tarot spread and Ritual included.
Strong Aspects during the day PST
Moon Opposition Sun in Aquarius 5:27AM
A Full Moon occurs when the Moon is opposing the Sun, this opposition always allows for a polarity in the dual signs, in this case Leo and Aquarius, the mind and the heart. This will empower us to share ourselves intensely, and we may feel extra inclined to overly post on social media in regard to issues that are dear to our hearts and things humanitarian or social justice causes we care about This is a good energy to get the day started with, but try to be mindful with the ego projection as well.
Mercury enters Aquarius 5:40AM
Mercury in Aquarius allows for us to have a lot come to focus for us in how we effect change within the world. The sharing of ideas around innovation and change, and how that applies to the group think and front lines of our political systems will be a major focus. On a personal level we may feel more politically driven, we could see ourselves getting caught up in following the news and getting very orally driven in sharing our opinions or thoughts on what is happening in the world during this time.
Moon Opposition Venus in Aquarius 2:48PM
Emotionally we will feel there is a lot being challenged within us. Especially things around our ego, our sense of self, our pride. We may feel a tug to step outside of ourselves and see the world for the bigger picture. This opposition may
