Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 7/29-8/4

This week is powerful as we transition from July to August and begin the new month with a powerful New Moon in Leo on the 31st. With this New Moon we are finding a new way to express ourselves, and feeling inspired and motivated to put the new self into action. Getting things in order and moving forward on serious goals is a theme for the week ahead and we benefit from pushing forward and finding ways to be productive in the pursuit of our goals. Mercury also stations Direct this week, so we may experience some turbulence when it comes to travel and communication in the days ahead.

Tarot Cards for the week:

Strength, The Sun, The Tower, The Moon, Death, 4 of Wands, 5 of Wands, 6 of Wands, 7 of Pentacles, 8 of Pentacles, 9 of Pentacles, 2 of Cups, 3 of Cups.

Monday 7/29

Moon enters Cancer 4:31 AM

With the Moon in Cancer starting out the week, we might feel like we are more sensitive to the mundane world and it could be harder for us to get moving on work related tasks. The Moon is in its dignity in Cancer, meaning that this is the sign that it operates the best in. The High Priestess in the Tarot is a positive energy to meditate upon when thinking about the Moon in Cancer. This is a time for us to go deep and get in touch with our more intuitive and spiritual realms. Move slow, be kind, thoughtful, and act with compassion and care today. You may feel more withdrawn and giving yourself space for some self care and downtime during the day is beneficial.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Sextile Uranus in Taurus 3:37 PM

Unexpected changes within home, family, or work life can be a characteristic of this transit and we may feel like things we have been used to or that were familiar are no longer influencing us in the same ways.

Sun in Leo Square Uranus in Taurus 4:13 PM

Wherever this transit is hitting in our own personal birth chart, this transit between the Sun which rules our identity and sense of self, and Uranus, the planet of sudden and unexpected changes, may bring in some new life into our creative and physical worlds. We may feel like we are ready to make some drastic changes to our identity and self expression in the world. Some of us may feel inclined to change careers or move to a new place during this time. This is a powerful transit that can ignite our path, but it may come through a challenge or hardship we were not anticipating or hoping for. We can think of The Tower card in the Tarot as a representation of this transit.

Tuesday 7/30

Moon in Cancer

Moon Void of Course 8:33 PM

We continue to feel deeply and there is a potential to romanticize the past today. We may be working through some deep layers of our emotional awareness. We benefit from carving out time for self care when the Moon is in Cancer, and we may be more prone to isolation today.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Opposition Saturn RX in Capricorn 6:57 AM

Getting started in the morning may be difficult and there is a potential for us to feel sluggish and resistant towards tasks in the mundane. We may need to give ourselves some extra time in the morning to get going as we are most likely to hit snooze for as long as possible.

Moon Trine Neptune RX in Pisces 11:15 AM

Our intuitive and emotional awareness is at an all time high and we are more prone to deceptions and illusions about ourselves and the world around us. We may feel extra sensitive to the energy of others during this transit and it is possible that we mistake it for our own. We need to find ways to stay grounded today. Listening to some music that ignites our passion for living is a positive way to lean into this transit.

Moon Opposition Pluto RX in Capricorn 4:27 PM

Tension and inspiration in regard to our emotional process and how we grow and evolve moving forward is enhanced. We are learning to let go and leave behind layers of our past related to our families during this time and we might be feeling like we are feeling some tension around that letting go process. Our belief systems about ourselves and how we are successful in the world were typically ingrained into us by our parents, teachers, and/or society that we grew up in. This is a time to acknowledge the belief systems you have about your own story, and ask yourself whether the story you are living is congruent with where you are trying to go in your life.

Moon Conjunct Mercury RX in Cancer 8:33 PM

We may feel a deep need to work through an emotional process by communicating it with a loved one or trusted friend. We may be working through some issues from our past, or with family members that require us to go deep and examine parts of ourselves that are uncomfortable. We also may lean more into self care in the evening hours and we benefit from taking some time to find tranquility and peace within our environment. We are prone to being more sensitive and overly emotional during this transit.

Wednesday 7/31

Moon enters Leo 6:18 AM

New Moon in Leo 8:12 PM

The New Moon in Leo gives us an opportunity to set intentions around who we are in our relationships with others. This could be in our romantic relationships, family environment, career, or all of the above. We may feel during this time like there is pressure to level up into the next face of being who we are. We are being asked to evaluate where we seek validation, where we lack confidence, and how we can find an internal strength that does not rely so much on the validation or ego stroking from others. Leo enjoys spreading joy and love, and this New Moon is calling us to find where we can bring more joy and love into our own lives, as well as the lives of others.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Conjunct Venus in Leo 1:51 PM

We feel a deep need for love and connection during the hours of this transit. We benefit from self love activities and giving ourselves space to rejoice in the life we have created for ourselves, no matter whether we are where we want to be yet or not. Do something that feeds your heart, and do something that is loving and heartfelt for another today.

Moon Square Uranus in Taurus 4:54 PM

The New Moon energy makes a Square to Uranus in Taurus and this sparks a need for change within our physical and spiritual life. We may experience changes happening within and around us whether we want them to or not and we benefit from welcoming these changes. It is time to leave comfort zones that are no longer helping us evolve into the self we are meant to become in this life. Follow the call to become stronger, wiser, and more in line with your hearts purpose.

Mercury Stations Direct 8:58 PM

Mercury stations direct in Cancer, and while we welcome the energy, we still must remember that it is when Mercury is moving from RX to Direct that it can be at its most “trickster” like expression. We are not in the clear yet, and we still may experience difficulties in communication and processing our emotions mentally for about the next week.

Thursday 8/1

Moon in Leo

Moon Void of Course 1:48 PM

The energy of the New Moon will still be in the orb of influence today and we may begin to feel like we are ready for that new self to emerge. However, with the Moon void of course for most of the day, we benefit from not making any large or life altering decisions yet. This is just a time for setting the intentions and getting the vision of who you want to be in the world into your minds eye.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Trine Jupiter RX in Sagittarius 5:53 AM

Our need for freedom and expansion is enhanced in the morning hours, and since it is also Jupiter's day, we benefit from applying ourselves in a studious way to learning something that expands our intellectual and spiritual awareness.

Moon Conjunct Mars in Leo 1:48 PM

Our drive, will, and ambition around stepping into that new self we are envisionsing is enhanced and we could feel a large need to share with the world the insights and determination we have towards moving forward on our goals. This is a great time for making a list of everything you want to accomplish for the remainder of the year.

Friday 8/2

Moon enters Virgo 6:10 AM

With the Moon in Virgo we feel inspired to get things done on our “to-do” list and we benefit from being productive about our mundane tasks. That inspiration we gained during the New Moon is ready to be put into application. Find a way to begin moving forward towards your goals.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Venus in Leo Square Uranus in Taurus 2:59 AM

Tension in romantic relationships is enhanced over the days of this transit and we need to be careful with how we pursue any romantic interests moving forward. For those in stable/committed relationships this may be a time where we feel like we are experiencing an energy shift with our partner. Maybe we are planning some life changes and it is bringing up some other issues that need to be sorted out. This is a time for growth within relationships and it may come through in unexpected ways. We also need to be mindful with our money and how we are managing our physical responsibilities during this time.

Moon Trine Uranus in Taurus 4:50 PM

We may feel inspired to make some changes within our physical environment and we benefit from being open to seeing the world around us in new and interesting ways. This is a good time to get organized with your goals around the changes you are planning on making.

Saturday 8/3

Moon in Virgo

Moon Void of Course 9:27 PM

We continue to benefit from being organized and practical about getting things done during the day. The more productive you are, the better you will feel. Cleaning, organizing, planning, are all positive ways to spend the energy. Also doing something outside and in nature is beneficial for the mind and heart.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Square Jupiter RX in Sagittarius 5:39 AM

Tension in the morning hours around what needs to get done in the mundane, vs. what our heart wants is enhanced. We might need to prioritize being more practical and responsible today rather than spontaneous. You may be able to find a way to work both into your day, but use caution as you benefit more from getting any work done rather than focusing on fun.

Moon Trine Saturn RX in Capricorn 7:03 AM

We benefit from finding ways to stay grounded within the mundane or physical world. This is a positive energy for getting tasks/work done or things on our “to-do” list that we may typically blow off on a Saturday. You will feel better the more productive you are today.

Moon Opposition Neptune RX in Pisces 11:31 AM

Once again there is some tension between being practical vs. the need for escapism. We may benefit from taking a break from our chore list and working in some fun to help break up the day. We are easily ungrounded today if not careful, so finding a way to blend the energy of our physical and emotional realms in healthy and positive ways is advised.

Moon Trine Pluto RX in Capricorn 4:35 PM

We may feel inspired to get rid of some things in our physical world that are no longer serving us. This is a positive time for gutting and cleaning areas of our home or work spaces and establishing some new and fresh energy that inspires our productivity moving forward. We could also feel inspired during this time to work on a project we have been procrastinating on.

Moon Sextile Mercury in Cancer 9:27 PM

This is a harmonious energy that enables us to work through our mental and emotional process in an active and fluid way. We may feel more inspired to get our finances in order, and we may enjoy talking out our emotional and mental process with a loved one.

Sunday 8/4

Moon enters Libra 6:30 AM

With the Moon in Libra for the day we benefit from taking it easy. We may have spent the majority of our energy on projects the day before, and today we benefit from slowing down, or curling up with a good book, or spending time with a loved one.

Our hearts benefit from doing something that inspires us to feel restful and calm.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Sextile Venus in Leo 11PM

We have a desire to connect to another person and this is a positive energy for people in relationships. For those who are single, we may feel like we want to connect with a friend or someone close to us that fills our hearts with joy.
