Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 1/14-1/20

This is our last week with our Sun in the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. Starting on Sunday, our Sun will enter the Fixed Water Sign of Aquarius and we will end the evening with a powerful Super Moon Lunar Eclipse at 0 degrees of Leo. This week we also have a lot of major transits involving Venus, Mercury, Neptune, Pluto and Mars. Our romantic relationships, friendships, jobs, and personal sense of self will all be up for review at this time and we could feel an immense amount of internal pressure to push our lives in new directions. There is a lot of beneficial energy for creative and artistic pursuits. On the flip side this same energy can manifest in toxic ways if we choose to escape reality by harming our bodies and minds with substances or outside pursuits that pull us away from growing into our best selves. Be mindful of the judgements you portray onto the world and others and ask yourself if you are living a life yourself that is in line with your values. Try to focus on staying in your lane this week and working on yourself, rather than obsessing with what others are doing.

Tarot Cards for the week:

Strength, The Moon, The Sun, Temperance, The Lovers, The Tower, The Devil, Judgement, The Star, and The Magician.

Monday 1/14

Moon Void of Course 7:56 AM

Moon enters Taurus 10:31 AM

It is important that we find time to get grounded during the day. The Moon enjoys being in Taurus, and we can imagine the energy of The Empress card in the Tarot as the energy to carry with us in the next two days. We benefit from nurturing ourselves in healthy ways and connecting to mother earth if we can.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Mercury in Capricorn Sextile Neptune in Pisces 5:19 AM

Our ability to visualize what we wish to manifest into the planes of reality is enhanced during this transit. We are more in tune to the etheric energy that surrounds, and it is possible for us to receive psychic downloads. We may have powerful dreams at this time as well as deeper insights to how we can expand our world in new ways.

Moon Conjunct Uranus in Aries 7:56 AM

A desire for change sparks us in the early morning hours and we also may experience unexpected changes. It will be best if we go with the flow rather than getting hung up on what we can or can't control.

Tuesday 1/15

Moon in Taurus

We are prone to wanting to over do in the physical today and we could be prone to over eating, over spending, or needing to do something within the physical world that enables us to feel more grounded and in touch with reality. We benefit from gardening, cooking, or working with our bodies in a way that is slow, steady, and intentional.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Trine Saturn in Capricorn 10:50 AM

We benefit from handling things within our physical world in steady, slow, calm and practical way. This is a grounding energy and we may feel extra connected to our homes, bodies, or any work we feel invested in.

Moon Sextile Neptune in Pisces 1:15 PM

Our need to connect to our physical bodies and world in an emotional and sensitive way is enhanced and we benefit from doing something around our homes that feeds our soul. This energy is also great for artists and enhances our ability to visualize something and create it within the physical world.

Moon Trine Mercury in Capricorn 5:30 PM

Being able to communicate and share ideas within our work and physical world is enhanced and if there are projects we have been wanting to move forward, this energy helps give that a boost in the evening hours.

Wednesday 1/16

Moon Void of Course 10:34 AM

Moon enters Gemini 5 PM

With the Moon V/C during the first part of the day, we will not want to make any large decisions about anything. Once the Moon is in the Mutable Earth sign of Gemini, we may feel more inclined to socialize and share ideas that we have been mulling over in the earlier hours. Gemini enhances our ability to articulate our emotions, but it can also induce over thinking and anxiety so we will want to make sure we stay grounded in reality about the stories we are telling ourselves.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Trine Sun in Capricorn 10:34 AM

This is a positive and harmonious energy for our morning and may cause communication and socialization to be at a high with the Moon in the sign of Gemini. If we are more introverted during this time, it could be good for moving forward on projects and getting tasks done that we have been procrastinating on that are beneficial to our personal success.

Thursday 1/17

Moon in Gemini

We have another day with the Moon in Gemini and this amps up our mental energy. If tapped into in a positive way, we can enjoy time with friends and family sharing ideas, laughing, as well as having a less serious approach to our day. If we fall into the shadow aspect of this placement, we may be prone to overthinking and tendencies towards anxiety. Good ways to balance out the fast mental energy of Gemini is to go for a walk, to the gym, or get your body moving in some way. If that isn't possible for you, try reading book or doing some cooking. These activities can help ground your mind.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Opposition Venus in Sagittarius 11:54 AM

Potential for disagreements and emotional tension between friends, lovers, and family members is a characteristic of this transit. We may crave connection with people who will validate our belief systems or ideas, but there is potential for it to not go the way we had hoped. It may be best to work on being receptive to ideas or feedback you were not planning on hearing, rather than getting worked up about it.

Moon Sextile Mars in Aries 12:32 PM

Harmonious energy around us taking action and asserting ourselves is enhanced in the afternoon hours and we may feel a boost of energy towards our ambitions.

Moon Square Neptune in Pisces 5:57 PM

Emotional sensitivity is enhanced in the evening hours and we are more prone to descending into a loop of anxiety and over-emotional behavior. We need to be careful not to buy into deceptions or illusions that cause us to spin out. There is a potential towards escapism through substances and this should be avoided.

Moon Opposition Jupiter in Sagittarius 7:10 PM

This energy causes us to be prone to overindulgence in the hours of the evening and we need to be careful not to look towards food, spending money, or substances as a means to coping with problems. We may have large ideas or beliefs we wish to assert onto others that may be hypocritical. Are we truly living in line with our own value systems? Or are we projecting and asking others to rise to expectations that we do not hold for ourselves? The tension of the this transit in the evening gives us the opportunity to reflect on the beliefs we carry about the world, how we model and live in line with our values, and the judgements we project about those values.

Friday 1/18

Moon Void of Course 5:32 PM

Moon enters Cancer 7:44 PM

The Moon in Cancer in the evening has us wanting to stay home and focus on self care. We may feel a lot of need to recharge from a busy and productive week and we are likely to cancel plans with friends and curl up with some take out and a movie. Don't force yourself to be social if you are not feeling it. We also may need to connect to family or people in our lives that feel like family. So if you do end up socializing, make sure it is something that feels like self care rather than escapism.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Venus in Sagittarius Trine Mars in Aries 8:50 AM

This energy enhances our need for connection and amps up creative and sexual energy. We may feel extra passionate in our relationships and/or ambitions. Our need to expand or move a relationship or project forward is at an all time high.

Mercury in Capricorn Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn 12:01 PM

This energy characterizes our ability to uncover what has been hidden. We have deeper awareness or insights to things that we were unable to see before. Our interest in dissecting how something works that we didn't understand before is also enhanced and we may gain new insights towards something we have been working towards.

Sun in Capricorn Square Uranus in Aries 5:30 PM

In the days of this transit we feel an extreme urge for personal freedom and serious changes within our lives. We may be trying to establish new structures and a new identity but in too aggressive of a manner. This is not the time to make too many large changes. We need to allow ourselves to work through the new insights presenting themselves to us during this time before we act on any of our ideas. We may have a hard time doing this and it is likely a lot of us will make some decisions prematurely.

Saturday 1/19

Moon in Cancer

We feel a need to stay home and nurture ourselves when the Moon is in Cancer. We may feel less likely to want to be social and we need to prioritize self care and recharging over going out and over extending ourselves to others.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Square Mars in Aries 4:28 PM

Tension in the early evening arises and we may feel a lot of heated/emotional/irritable energy. We benefit from working heat through the body. Take a bath and do some yoga to help ground your feelings and get out of your head.

Moon Opposition Saturn in Capricorn 5:48 PM

Tension between our feelings and staying grounded in reality is a highlight for the evening hours. We could feel conflicted over taking care of our responsibilities while also taking care of ourselves. It will be important that we find a way to do a little bit of both rather than choosing one over the other.

Moon Trine Neptune in Pisces 7:20 PM

This energy enhances our feelings and intuitive awareness. We feel extra emotional and sensitive to everything and we benefit from channeling this energy into self care or creative hobbies that fulfill us. Take a bath, listen to music, paint, dance, draw, meditate.

Sunday 1/20

Moon Void of Course 5:50 PM

Moon enters Leo 7:54 PM

Sun enters Aquarius 1 AM

Lunar Eclipse Super Moon in Leo 9:16 PM

Happy Birthday to all the Aquarius people out there! Today in the early hours of the morning the Sun is making it's way into your sign.

Today also marks the last of the Eclipse's in the Aquarius/Leo polarity for a while and we will want to reflect on what we were doing and what we were going through on the last Lunar Eclipse in Leo that happened February 1st of 2018 at 11 degrees, and the Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11th at 18 degrees. These Eclipse's are here to help us begin and end major turning points in our lives. And with this Lunar Eclipse in Leo being at 0 degrees of Leo and Aquarius, we will be starting a new phase of this energy within our lives this year. It is time to fully let go of the past and begin paving the way for our future. Leo is Fixed Fire and rules the 5th house in the zodiac. This house rules creativity, children, self expression in the world, romance, and how we share ourselves with others.

From the perspective of someone who is a Leo ( myself) I can say that these Eclipses have been excruciatingly hard for me on a personal level. I have felt my ego being massacred for the past year, and every time these Eclipses have come around, I feel like a completely new self is trying to emerge. I also have been in a major self evaluation of how I share myself with my friends, family, and the world. I have been overly self concious with how I share and I feel I also have found a voice for myself that is more in line with the direction I am moving towards. For some of you, these Eclipses may be doing the same, and we have an opportunity during this Eclipse to truly establish a new sense of self out into the world moving forward. With that said, we still may feel like our ego's are on the chopping block and it may be hard for us to feel confident right now. The Moon in Leo is difficult for Leo Sun people, as it brings us into the darker corners of our hearts, when all we really want to do is shine and show everyone how great we are. Sometimes in order to be great, we have to go inward and cut out the parts that are not actually great. This would be ego driven, self focused need for attention, validation, or praise. Or our ability to be so self reliant that we forget to check in with the needs of others.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Opposition Pluto in Capricorn 6:01 AM

Tension in the early hours is enhanced and we feel a need to slow down and reevaluate how we are or are not taking control in our lives.

Moon Opposition Mercury in Capricorn 10:56 AM

Conflict within communication and our mental process arises and we need to find ways of staying grounded. Meditate in the morning hours to help center and root yourself.

Moon Square Uranus in Aries 5:50 PM

More tension in the evening hours around our desire for change and how we express ourselves is enhanced. We getting ready to make some major lifestyle changes around how we establish ourselves in the world.

Venus in Sagittarius Square Neptune in Pisces 8:24 PM

We are overly imaginative about what is possible within our lives and our relationships. This energy can be beneficial if we channel the tension into creative and artistic projects. But if we spend too much time obsessing over relationships or ideas out of reach, we fall into obsessive and delusional thinking patterns that can carry us away from reality. We can dream big, especially with the energy of the Eclipse right now, but we also need to stay rooted in present reality. This does not mean we can't believe in ourselves or our potential to carve a better and more meaningful life, but it does mean that we need to not make any life changing decisions as our judgement may be weak at this time. This energy enhances all over indulgences and tendencies towards escapism. Escape through artistic and creative means, not through alcohol, over eating, drugs, or over spending.
