Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 5/7-5/13

Happy Monday!

Wow, last week was a doozy for many despite there not being many major transits. The Shadow of that Full Moon really lingered and we had a lot to think about throughout the week. I received a lot of text messages from you guys asking why this was going on, and all I have to reiterate is that there are cycles where we are just meant to really go inward, reflect, and do some major healing around things we may have been burying or suppressing. The energy of Universe guides us to become more self aware of our inner process and how that is manifested into the physical. Karmically we are here to grow and heal so that we can evolve and move onto the next plane of existence away from this 3 dimensional reality. Us Humans are only really aware of a small amount of what we do and most of us aren't even aware that there is actually some weird point to it all. Despite this, we continue to push ourselves to grow, and giving in and allowing space for us to do that is imperative to that process.

This week we will have some more aspects that push us to grow but we will have more energy to push things forward than last week. With the waning of the Moon we may still feel like our energy level isn't where it should be, but we will gradually feel a build up and a release as we approach our New Moon in Taurus next week.

I hope you all enjoy this weeks blog and have a wonderful Last Quarter Moon~

Monday 5/7

Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius 7:09PM

The Last Quarter Moon asks us to pause and reflect on what beliefs or ideas are not helping us move forward. What have we gained thus far that we can have gratitude for, and what else needs to be cultivated? In Aquarius we may be questioning our values or ethical standpoint on beliefs we have. Are we living a life that is free and open to change? Are we preventing ourselves from moving forward due to fear of being unconventional or different? Are we trying too much to fit into the status quo? Aquarius is the rebel, innovator, and champion for social change. How can you create more freedom in your life during this time free from restriction and rigidity?

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Mercury in Aries Square Pluto in Capricorn 1:49AM

This transit we will be feeling throughout the next few days and it is a difficult one. Our communication may be subject to harshness and irritability. We may feel we need to let go of some ideas we have had about ourselves but we may still be struggling and trying to hold on. Be mindful with how you speak to others and loved ones. There is a lot of potential for arguments and accidents. You want to be careful and try to take things slow, which will feel like the opposite of what you want. Allow some shedding to take place, let go and welcome any new insights to changes that need to be made in your perceptions of yourself.

Venus in Gemini Square Neptune in Pisces 2:59PM

This transit is also a bit on the more difficult side but there is a lot of benefit to it. Venus the planet of love, romance and beauty is in the mutable air sign of Gemini which causes us to need more socialization and intellectual stimilation from loved ones, making a harsh aspect to dreamy Neptune in Pisces, we could feel some tension between our perceptions of people or things in our lives. We are more prone to anxiety, illusions, deceptions, and escapism with this transit. While it can be fun to be creative, and through this energy we may feel that creativity helps release some of the tension, we also want to be mindful with whether or not we are being deceptive to others our ourselves about what is really going on. Try to stay rooted in reality as best you can as there is a lot of potential to get caught up in things that are not really happening.

Moon Trine Venus in Gemini 4:25PM

This energy is positive for the mind in the early evening and we hopefully will be feeling like our thoughts are flowing smoothly. There could also be potential for us to think too much and therefore cause some unneeded anxiety. As mentioned before, try to stay grounded and move slowly to use your mental process in the most positive way.

Moon Square Sun in Taurus 7:09PM

Our emotions will have some tension surrounding our identity and ego assertion in the evening, combined with the Mercury and Pluto transit, this could have us feeling tense. Try to decompress in the evening and do not force yourself to do anything you do not want to do. You would benefit from going on a walk or doing some movement with the body. Be careful as you may be more accident prone.

Moon Square Jupiter in Scorpio 9:11PM

We may feel overly emotional by bed time and that is ok. Whatever comes up, let yourself work through it. With the Last Quarter Moon, it is important that we allow whatever healing needs to take place. Do not suppress your feelings. Cry it out, journal, tarot, do whatever you need to do to work through the feelings.

Tuesday 5/8

Moon Void of Course 7:29PM

Moon Enters Pisces 8:11PM

Our Moon in Pisces in the evening will have us needing a nice self care night at home, or something that focuses on our creative side. Make art, music, poetry. Do something that connects you to your spirit and heart. For the first half of the day we may be feeling a lot of tension, it is important that you allow yourself to let go like The Hanged One in the Tarot, come evening.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Sextile Mercury in Aries 5:50AM

We may experience a more positive mindset about ourselves in the morning compared to the day before. This is a positive energy for our minds and perceptions of ourselves. We may find ourselves more detached emotionally than we were the previous night.

Sun Opposition Jupiter in Scorpio 5:39PM

Our connection to our spirits and our physical world may create some inner conflict or tension for us. We may feel tugged in two different directions, trying to heal and expand our inner world, while also trying to stay grounded and on top of the physical. While this is something we face daily, we may feel it more intensely at the end of the day than we normally do. We could be revisiting some feelings we had during the Full Moon in Scorpio. Try to let yourself work though it rather than judge yourself for it coming up again. Just breathe and give yourself space to acknowledge the feelings.

Moon Sextile Uranus in Aries 7:29PM

If we allowed ourselves to work through the tension in a positive way, we could be feeling more positive about the changes we want to make in our lives. Emotionally we should be ready to give up some ideas or perceptions that are not helping us move forward. You may need to do something you normally wouldn't do on this day to get your mindset in a more positive place. You do not have to stay in a routine all of the time. If you are sick of what you are doing, you can do something different any time you want. We often forget we have the power to change our lives at any time. This can sometimes be perceived as reckless, but through risk and change we find ourselves and grow more. Don't regret the risks, the down periods, or the times you say"F-IT" and do what you want for that is when we are truly living a life that is in line with our hearts. You can shake things up without ruining your stability.

Wednesday 5/9

Moon in Pisces

The Moon in Pisces causes us to be more sensitive to our fellow man, as well as ourselves. We feel more intuitive and in touch with our spiritual nature. This energy is great for creative types and also needs time to be nurtured. Give yourself space to be creative and focus on some self care. No need to push it hard when the Moon is in Pisces. We also can be more inclined to escapism or addict like behavior, so be mindful with what you are telling yourself or giving into as you are more prone to illusions.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Sextile Saturn in Capricorn 1:22PM

This energy is great for taking ideas and figuring out how to manifest them into the physical. This is a great transit for creative energy and getting those fantasies actualized.

Thursday 5/10

Moon in Pisces

The creative spark and sensitive energy carries into Thursday. We may at this point begin to feel more emotional as when the Moon is in Pisces we can start to feel overly sensitive. Don't fight it, let yourself feel all the feels but be mindful about whether you are being overly dramatic about it.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Trine Jupiter in Scorpio 7:26AM

That emotional energy is enhanced in the morning and our need for spiritual and creative expansion is enhanced. Listening to music that feeds your soul is recommended.

Moon Square Venus in Gemini 9:45AM

This energy is conflicting and tension inducing on the feeling and mental front. Our hearts and minds might not be syncing up and we may just wish we could stay home and nurture the self rather than be productive.

Moon Sextile Sun in Taurus 10:58AM

We benefit from connecting to nature and our bodies during this time and we could also feel a need to eat well or over indulge. Try to enjoy earthly pleasures without over doing it. You may want to over spend, over eat, or be a bit lazy. Try to focus more on how you can benefit from your earthly and emotional energy without going too wild.

Moon Sextile Pluto in Capricorn 1:13PM

Some tension between our minds, emotions, and perceptions of the physical world could spark in the afternoon. Pluto always challenges us to reevaluate where we need transformation, power, and growth. You may feel inclined to transform something around you or change something in the physical that you have been contemplating.

Friday 5/11

Moon Void of Course 2:02AM

Moon enters Aries 5:40AM

The Moon in Aries creates more passion, ambition, and intensity for us on the emotional front. There is a potential to be more self centered and to need to be. Try to be mindful with how you assert yourself to others, but go for your goals and enjoy this amplification of energy. This is a great time for getting things moving.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Sun in Taurus Trine Pluto in Capricorn 4:07 PM

We may feel some positive energy in the physical front of wanting to change something about our homes, bodies, or work setting in a positive way. This is a great energy for rearranging, cleaning, organizing, or getting things grounded. You may want to do something active with your body, go shopping or work in the garden. Spend some time out in Nature and enjoy this energy that is focused on the physical.

Moon Square Saturn in Capricorn 9:35PM

In the evening there may be some tension between structures and what we would prefer to do. You may feel like what you want goes against what needs to happen. Try to see the benefit in what Saturn is here to teach us. Like the Emperor card in the Tarot- sometimes we need structure, sometimes we need to not dominate or be overly assertive. Ask yourself what side of it you are on and see what will benefit you the most. Do you need to give in to structure? Do you need to be more or less assertive? Or do you need to rebel against the structure you are in and change it up?

Saturday 5/12

Moon in Aries

We will feel intensity and drive towards achieving whatever we set out to achieve over the weekend. This is great energy for getting things done whether you have plans with other people or are by yourself. You may feel more inclined to chill out getting things done by yourself.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Mercury in Aries Square Mars in Capricorn 6:30AM

This transit amplifies the potential for arguments and accidents. We need to be extra cautious with moving too fast or asserting ourselves too aggressively. Move slower than you want to, think before you speak, check yourself before you wreck yourself. If you slow it down and try to be more methodical you can use this tension to accomplish a lot. If you live in a busy city like me, expect a lot of people to not be on their best behavior.

Moon Square Pluto in Capricorn 7:54PM

Another intense transit to carry into the evening. Be careful, mindful, and cautious with how you move your body and put your energy forward.

Moon Sextile Venus in Gemini 10:01PM

This eases up some of the tension throughout the day a bit but we are still wanting to be careful. We might be just relieved that the day is over and it would be wise for us to focus on just taking it easy and getting plenty of rest. We may be more prone to anxiety and over thinking things in the evening.

Sunday 5/13

Mothers Day

Moon Void of Course 11:05AM

Moon Enters Taurus 11:15AM

The energy of Taurus helps ground us on Mothers day and is the perfect energy for honoring our Mothers, Mother Earth, and the Divine Feminine. I acknowledge not everyone has a positive relationship with their Mother or a Mother who is alive to share this day with. Try to honor the energy of creation and the earth if this is you.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Mercury in Aries Conjunct Uranus in Aries 3:49AM

This energy happens early but we will feel the effects leading up to it and after. It allows for a smooth line of communication, but with the energy of Uranus and Aries, it also could result in aggressive or intense communication. You will want to be mindful with how you express yourself or assert yourself.

Mercury Enters Taurus 5:40AM

With Mercury in Taurus our mental energy will become overly focused on the physical. We could find ourselves overthinking about money, food, physical luxuries, our image, etc...The benefit to this energy is that our communication can become more direct, grounded, and rooted in reality. We may slow things down a bit and focus on restructuring how we think about doing things. This is a good time for getting some new structures in place around work and money.

Moon Square Mars in Capricorn 9:31AM

Tension in the morning could amplify our assertiveness or accident prone tendencies as well. Just take things slow and try not too be too harsh or critical towards yourself and others. I usually try to stay home and avoid the outside world during these transits as people tend to be extra awful....ugh!

Moon Conjunct Uranus in Aries 11:05 AM

Need for freedom and change comes up. You may want to do something you normally wouldn't do and it could benefit you to just go do it!

Moon Conjunct Mercury in Taurus 11:57 AM

We will become more grounded in our communication and articulating what we need for ourselves with others. Focus on mentally grounding yourself. Do a work out and spend some time in Nature but take it slow!
