Moonday Monday, Your weekly forecast 7/8-7/14

Just because it worked before don’t mean it’ll work again! “

That was the first thing that popped into my head if I were to summarize the transits that define the energy of this week. We are being challenged right now in regard to our sense of self and who we are in the world.

In life, we may have always done things a certain way, or believed a certain story about ourselves and our world, but all of that is falling away now, and we are being asked to be open to a new story, new rules, and a new life. It can be scary when maybe those rules and that story has not been written yet.

The stage is being set this summer for that story to be written.

I have spoken to so many people over the past week already who are experiencing deep transformative processes happening within themselves. Things within the mundane world are triggering these deep processes, and everyone is being asked to level up, and in ways that are threatening to the ego and the self we have once grown to find comfort in. This week is not the week to get comfortable. You may feel irritable this week, angry, frustrated, confused and exhausted. You may feel like the Universe does NOT have your back ,and you may be thinking “ why world, why me?”

You are not alone in your feelings, and you are being asked to stop wallowing in your self pity. It's time to level up, and whatever challenges you are facing, big or small, they are giving you that opportunity for growth and healing.

Find gratitude in your resilience when all else seems futile.

The glass may be half empty, but for some it is half full, perception this week is everything.

Monday 7/8

Moon in Libra

With the Moon in Libra today, our need for peace and tranquility could be enhanced. We benefit from having a balanced approach to our day and not being emotionally invested in anything going any particular way. We benefit from connecting to the beauty within nature and our surroundings today and we may find ourselves gravitating towards things that stimulate our minds in an intellectual way. We also benefit from connecting with a close friend or partner on subjects of interest to us.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Our ability to express ourselves in a direct way is enhanced in the morning hours and it may be important to us to feel validated or heard in who we are right now. We also may enjoy feeling love and joy with those who are important to us.

Moon Sextile Mercury RX in Leo 6:37 AM

Self expression and how we communicate at a heart level is enhanced in the morning and we may find ourselves working through layers of our ego that have been hidden to us until now. This is a good time to evaluate the stories we tell ourselves about others and ourselves and we may find ourselves rethinking how we relate to the world.

Venus in Cancer Sextile Uranus in Taurus 8:31 AM

This is an especially harmonious time for unexpected opportunities in the ways of creative processes and love. We may feel a need for self care in the days ahead and we may find ourselves doing that in new and interesting ways. We could also feel motivated and inspired to change things around our home environment, some cleaning, remodeling, or redecorating is in order!

Moon Square Venus in Cancer 9:33 AM

Tension during this transit is enhanced around our feelings and relationship to others. We could feel like giving to others is harder than usual and we may just want to focus on recharging ourselves during the hours of this transit.

Mercury RX in Leo Conjunct Mars in Leo 3:28 PM

Aggressive self expression is enhanced over the next couple days and our tolerance for BS is slim. We may have a lot of ego projection that we are working through in the days of this transit and we benefit from chewing on some humble pie before we get too cocky about anything. Our drive for success and recognition could be enhanced over the next few days and we could feel a competitive urge to dominate others. Try to tone it down where you can in your intimate relationships, but channel this drive into your work as that can be beneficial. With Mercury retrograde, there is a lot of opportunity for things to be heard wrong. Slow it down, and try thinking things through before you respond to them.

Power struggles and issues with authority characterize this transit and we may find ourselves having a really difficult time with any interactions that challenge our sense of self. We could feel stubborn and unwilling to budge on a belief system we are carrying about ourselves. Both the Sun and Saturn have a relationship to our fathers in our charts, and the signs of Cancer and Capricorn can also bring up issues around our past connection to our families and the structures or institutions we grew up in. We are being asked to go deep and work through these layers of ourselves and how it relates back to our families and what has been ingrained in us at an early age. This may be a painful time for us in hashing out what our relationships to structure, establishment, and family values hold for us in our lives.

Moon Square Pluto RX in Capricorn 12:35 PM

A deep emotional need for transformation is enhanced during the hours of this transit and we benefit from letting go and giving into the energy. Structures that once gave us a sense of security are now falling away. We benefit from letting those structures go and finding the lesson what remains.

Sexual tension and a need for ego gratification is enhanced and this tension could have us seeking attention in unhealthy ways. We need to stop and evaluate our insecurities from a deeper place rather than being over reactive.

The competitive urge or tendency to wallow into a victim/martyr dynamic is enhanced. We also could feel overly irritable and short tempered in the hours of this transit.

Healing the layers of the subconscious is a theme throughout the hours of this transit.

Sun in Cancer Trine Neptune RX in Pisces 9:32 PM

This is an extremely powerful transit for stimulating energy within the ethereal and unseen realms. We are more easily able to access the unconscious realms of our thought waves and we benefit from spiritual work, meditation, dream work, channeling, or creative and artistic projects.

We all need to be extremely careful with how we push our energy forward in the coming days and we benefit from being slower rather than reactive or impulsive.
