Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 7/22-7/28


We start the week out with our Moon in the cardinal fire sign of Aries and our Sun moving into the fixed sign of Leo. Leo rules the heart chakra, the spine, and is symbolized in the Strength and Sun Tarot cards of the Major Arcana. Leo rules the 5th house in Astrology which is represented in self expression, romance, children, theatrical performance, and other types of performing arts.

Leo needs to feel validated and loved by the world around them and those they care about. Leo tends to be a lot more sensitive and insecure than their confident exterior shows. As a Leo myself, I often feel a deep longing and desire to belong, but my stubborn Will to succeed in my own unique way often creates a lot of separation for me within my life which can make it hard for me to feel like I truly belong anywhere.

During Leo season we may feel a stronger need to succeed and express ourselves. We may seek a lot of validation or praise from others and we may also feel an enhanced energy in our libido.

This week we also have a Last Quarter Moon in Taurus, that will be asking us to evaluate what within our physical world might need letting go. This is a positive time for making some space in your life for some new relationships to our work life, living spaces, and even our own physical bodies.

Tarot Cards for the week: Strength, The Sun, Temperance, The Emperor, The Magician, Page of Wands, Knight of Wands, Queen of Wands, King of Wands, 4 of Wands, 5 of Wands, 6 of Wands, Ace of Wands, 10 of Wands, 8 of Swords, 9 of Swords, 7 of Swords, The Lovers, 2 of Cups, 3 of Cups, Queen of Cups, 4 of Pentacles, 5 of Pentacles 6 of Pentacles

Monday 7/22

Moon Void of Course 1:34 AM

Moon enters Aries 3:02 AM

Sun enters Leo 7:51 PM

With our Sun and Moon in fire signs starting the week out, our need to express and validate ourselves is at an all time high. Leo season has officially begun and we may feel more of a desire to socialize and romanticize the world around us. We could also find ourselves being more focused on our spiritual drive and ambitions. This is a good time for aligning yourself with your hearts purest intention.

Tuesday 7/23

Moon in Aries

We may feel a need to assert ourselves today around things that we care about or need in order to feel more aligned with our own sense of self. The Moon in Aries may cause us to be a little more on the hot tempered side. It is wise we try to slow it down and use the momentum of Aries energy to be productive.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Trine Mars in Leo 6:34 AM

Our ability to push our energy forward in the morning hours is enhanced. It might be easier to get up and get going today, and we benefit from being productive in the morning hours.

Moon Trine JupiterRX in Sagittarius 9:14 AM

Our need for expansion in the morning hours is enhanced and we might benefit from changing up our morning routine with something that makes us feel like we are growing and evolving in new and interesting ways.

Moon Square SaturnRX in Capricorn 11:31 AM

Tension is enhanced during this transit around how we feel and what we have to do in the mundane or practical world. We may have something at work go wrong during the hours of this transit, or we may feel irritable and frustrated with some form of authority in our lives. We can think of The Emperor reversed in the Tarot as a good way to define this energy during this transit.

Moon Square PlutoRX in Capricorn 10:20 PM

We may feel tension over what we want vs. what we know we have to change in our lives. There could be some resistance towards that change or just tension around it. Our sense of self within our physical world is going through a transformation process and we benefit with being open to letting parts of our egoic self die.

Wednesday 7/24

Moon Void of Course 7:48 AM

Moon enters Taurus 2:42 PM

Last Quarter Moon in Taurus 6:18 PM

The Last Quarter Moon in Taurus can be symbolized by the 4, 5 and 6 of Pentacles cards in the Tarot. These cards represent our relationship to financial stability and our relationship to the material world. We may be in a period of evaluating our relationship to money, resources, food/health, or how we give and receive within our personal relationships. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, meaning it is a beneficial placement for the energy of the Moon. People with their Moon in Taurus tend to enjoy nurturing themselves and others through food, gifts, or spending time in nature. If you feel called to change up your routine or relationship to these things, this Moon is asking you to do that. Last Quarter Moons call for us to release and let go of patterns that are not helping us succeed. If you are not taking care of your health, finances, or your relationship to work or your physical space, this is a good time to evaluate what needs changing and how you and integrate healthier habits into your life.
