Moonday Monday, Your weekly Forecast 8/6-8/12

Happy Monday!

I don't know about you guys but Mercury Retrograde is definitely having its fun with my energetic sphere. Writing this blog took about three times as long as it should have and I am incredibly irritable as a result. This is a great foreshadow into this week as we have a lot of challenging transits that will test us and our patience. It will be important that we all move slow and use this as a time of reflection so that we can set our intentions clearly on Saturday during the Solar Eclipse in Leo.

Monday 8/6

Moon in Gemini

We feel a large need to work through our thoughts from a new perspective. We could find ourselves triggered today and need to acknowledge the root of the trigger. It could be likely that we feel anxious or overthink the small details. We benefit from talking through our feelings and finding ways to get grounded throughout the day.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Venus Enters Libra 4:28PM

Venus rules Libra and allows us to connect our minds to our hearts more evenly. With Venus in Libra our need to have harmonious relationships is enhanced especially when it comes to communication and how we interact with those we care about. Our need for balance and conflict free transactions is enhanced as well. We could feel a need to partner up if we are single, or if in a relationship we will want to feel close to our partner.

Sun in Leo Square Jupiter in Scorpio 4:28PM

Issues around our identity and sense of self could be triggered by feelings from our past. We could fall into overindulgent or ego driven behavior as a way of coping with the feelings that get brought up. It is important that we use this as a time to learn what else within the self needs healing and where can we cultivate more self love in a healthy way that spreads out into the lives of those we care about. We may feel we need to heal some parts of our inner child that remain as a trigger under the surface of our state of being.

Moon Sextile Sun in Leo 7:23PM

Our emotions come to the forefront of our process around our sense of self. We may be overthinking who we are and what we are about and it will be important that we find ways to be social and share who we are in a way that feeds our hearts in a healthy way.

Moon Square Neptune in Pisces 9:38PM

In the evening we could feel emotionally uncomfortable and more likely to want to escape our present reality. We are susceptible to tension in the mind around our perceptions of reality and what we emotionally want at this point and time. It is important that you do not look to escapism through substances and that you focus on getting grounded in a healthy way in the evening.

Tuesday 8/7

Moon Void of Course 12:55AM

Moon Enters Cancer 9:01PM

With the Moon Void of Course most of the day, we could feel a bit "off." It will be important on this day that has some difficult energy in the air, that we just try to roll with the punches as best we can. Change is inevitable and it is important that you focus on embracing the new coming into your life rather than fearing the old fading away.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Uranus Stations Retrograde in Taurus 9:49AM

Uranus will be retrograde until January 6th of 2019. By the time Uranus stations direct, it will have made its way back into the sign of Aries. We can expect to see a lot of the changes in our lives begin to unfold in new ways that may have us revisiting some feelings around what we want and who we are in it. If we have watched a large portion of our lives change, we may be now having to deal with some of the residual feelings that we were to busy to have focused on during the transition. This will be an opportunity for restructuring and moving into another layer of growth around the changes that have already taken place.

Venus in Libra Trine Mars in Aquarius 5:33PM

We will be feeling this transit for the days leading up and following. This transit is harmonious for the mind and allows us to think clearly on what it is we want out of our relationships with others and how our beliefs and perceptions influence that. We might change the way we communicate with our friends or partners or within our society. We may feel a need to connect more deeply to those that share our point of view. With Uranus retrograde in the mix, we might find our point of view being influenced by others and we may begin to see things in new ways that help us on our journey.

Moon Square Venus in Libra 11:09PM

This transit causes tension for us in the evening around our hearts and our minds. We could feel a need to connect with a loved one, but have it blocked or stifled in some way. It might be best to spend your evening focusing on giving yourself love rather than trying to seek it from another. Try not to be overbearing with your energy and focus on some self care in the evening hours.

Wednesday 8/8

Moon in Cancer

The Moon in Cancer with some of the other water focused transits in the day could have us feeling overly sensitive and emotional. Moon in Cancer days are typically best spent moving slow and allowing yourself to have space for self care. We feel less charged to get things done in the physical and more focused on our feelings and connecting to others in an emotional way. If you feel a need to sleep in or be reclusive, allow yourself to be slow and recharge.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Sun in Leo Conjunct Mercury in Leo 7:06PM

Communication is enhanced in the evening around establishing ourselves and our hearts. We mentally will need to feel more connected to sharing and giving a part of ourselves to others. We also will need to feel more in line with our hearts in a more spiritual way. This plays into the self care theme for the day and it will be important that we find a way to express ourselves and any creative impulses in a healthy way.

Moon Trine Jupiter in Scorpio 8:43PM

We could find our relationship to our past coming up to the surface and any kind of shadow like qualities in ourselves bubbling up to be acknowledged. This is a harmonious transit but it can also feel like our emotions are running the show faster or more directly than we were aware of. Try to move slow and allow yourself to feel things in a deep way without getting overly nostalgic or hypersensitive.

Moon Trine Neptune in Pisces 10:43PM

It will be insoortant that we allow a lot of room for self care in the evening. Take a bath, listen to music, paint, write, sing, draw. Do things that allow yourself to connect to your heart and creative energy in a healthy way. These transits can be triggering for people with substance abuse problems as there can be a need escape reality through mind altering substances. It is more constructive to do spiritual work through meditation, yoga, tarot, art, music, or anything therapeutic in a healthy way rather than trying to escape through something that is toxic.

Thursday 8/9

Moon Void of Course 4:20AM

Moon Enters Leo 9:18PM

The Moon in Leo can cause us to be a bit more emotionally temperamental if triggered. The need to express the self is enhanced and we can feel a little more hot headed than usual. The need to play, have fun, and share ourselves with others is enhanced and we would benefit from doing something creative that feeds the heart and soul.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Venus in Libra Square Saturn in Capricorn 6:34PM

This transit results in tension within our relationships and public affairs. There can be blockages to how we connect to others and those we love. We may experience ourselves feeling more cold or distant or getting that in return from others. We need to be slow and mindful with how we are communicating with others and we need to find a way to soften and be more receptive.

Moon Opposition Mars in Aquarius 10:12PM

This reinforces some of the tension in the above and can cause us to be more self focused on our goals resulting in a colder or more aloof attitude about the world. We need to be mindful that we are not projecting to much of our own agenda onto others. There is a lot of room for arguments and disagreements during this transit.

Friday 8/10

Moon in Leo

We begin to feel some of the intensity of the build up to the Solar Eclipse throughout the day. This is an important time to set intentions for what we want at a heart level. You can listen to the podcast I guest spoke on about this time here:

Moon Cojunct Mercury in Leo 8:54PM

We feel a need to express ourselves and connect to our hearts deeply in the evening. Self love is important and paying attention to the things you tell yourself about yourself.

Mercury in Leo Square Jupiter in Scorpio 11:32PM This transit creates a lot of difficulties around our mental process and we could find ourselves forgetting more than usual or becoming more disconnected to those around us. We are likely to procrastinate, have mental fog, and allow our beliefs to become clouded and run the show in an unhealthy way. We need to be extra aware of where we are neglecting responsibilities and we need to slow things down so that we can be aware of how our beliefs are running the show.

Perseids Meteor Shower

Moon in Virgo

We will feel the need to be productive throughout the day and this is a good day for getting work done that might help us be more set up for the following week. Exercise, clean the house, organize, and get things in order that will give you peace of mind in the days to come.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Mars Enters Capricorn 7:13PM

Mars retrograde moves back into Capricorn until August 27th. This will have us needing to revisit some things in our physical lives that need our attention. This gives us an opportunity to tie up any loose ends and get back on top of our responsibilities in a healthier way. If you are avoiding responsibilities than this could be the wake up call that brings some karma to the forefront. Try to get in front of any potential problems by taking care of the details.

Moon Sextile Jupiter in Scorpio 9:09PM

We are inclined to overindulge in the evening and it will be important that we allow ourselves for some down time and self care after a busy day.

Moon Opposition Neptune in Pisces 10:26PM

Tension between getting things done in the physical, and our need to escape reality is enhanced. Try to balance this our by doing little in the physical and having a little time for disconnecting from reality to make space to work through your feelings. Put on some good music or a movie in the evening hours and maybe do something physical with your body to work through any intense emotions.
