This week we have a lot of energy that inspires us to work through issues from our past coming to light. We may find ourselves having a lot of mental anxiety and tension during the end of the week and we benefit from changing up our routine. By the weekend self care and spiritual work is beneficial for our hearts. Moving slow this week is advised.
Tarot Cards for the week:
Death, The Tower, 4 of pentacles, 5 of pentacles, 6 of pentacles, 4 of cups, 5 of cups, 6 of cups, 2 of swords, Ace of Swords, Knight of Swords, Knight of Cups, Page of Cups, Page of Swords
Moon enters Taurus 9:24 AM
The Moon is exalted in Taurus which means that it expresses its energy positively when passing through the sign of Taurus. Taurus energy can have us being more practical and grounded about our emotional process and then things that we may gravitate towards lie in the earthly realm. The Aries energy we experienced over the weekend could have felt impulsive and intense, today we should find ourselves able to slow things down a bit when it comes to our emotional process. This is a good day for cooking at home, nurturing yourself admiring nature's beauty by going on a hike or walk, and being extra loving to your physical body through beauty routines or physical exercise. Taurus also enjoys work, so we may enjoy chipping away at projects or to-do lists in a slower paced and gradual way throughout the day.
Strong Aspects During the Day PST
Sun in Libra Square Pluto in Capricorn 12:34 AM
We most likely felt this energy yesterday as well as there was a T-Square formed between the Sun, Pluto and the Full Moon. Sun Square Pluto is one of the most difficult transits to be under from my own personal experiences. There is tension around where we feel empowered, or powerless. This is a time when we feel our sense of self is under personal examination and we may be ready to do away with a part of ourselves. Sun - Pluto transits relate to a death of the self. Sometimes there is an actual death in literal reality in the world or in our lives that leads to a large change and causes us to reexamine the way we have been relating to the world. With the Sun in Libra, and Pluto in Capricorn, we may have energy shifting in regards to our mental process and what we are doing with our lives in regard to work and our day to day operations. Maybe we are frustrated with reality as we have known it, and we are ready to move into new territory.
Moon Conjunct Uranus RX in Taurus 7:29 PM
Unexpected feelings could arise in the evening hours and we may experience some changes we were not anticipating. We may have to let go of any need to control the situation and find a way to go with the flow of whatever changes are taking place whether within us or around us.
Moon in Taurus
We continue to feel the beneficial grounding earth energy of Taurus influencing and inspiring us to slow down and focus on simpler things. The energy from the Sun square to Pluto, and remnants from our Full Moon in Aries on Sunday, still may be leaving an imprint of energy on us and we could find ourselves still working through some of those layers. We benefit from taking care of ourselves intently and being mindful with the energy we are exerting. I think of the 4 of Pentacles as potentially a good card to tap into today as we may feel like we need to preserve our energy and be mindful with how we exert ourselves right now.

Moon Trine Saturn in Capricorn 1:44 PM
Taurus meets Capricorn with our Moon making a Trine to Saturn in the afternoon. Trine energy is often on a base level described in astrology as a beneficial energy, but sometimes trine energy manifests itself too fast, and it is not always experienced in a positive way within the moment. It is an easy energy, rather than good or bad, as the energies have a direct link to each other being of the same elemental qualities. Here we may experience a need to focus on our physical world, things related to finances, health, and work on a mundane level.
Mercury in Scorpio Trine Neptune RX in Pisces 5:23 PM
Psychic and emotional sensitivity is enhanced during this transit and we need to be mindful with how who we surround ourselves with. Today may be a good day to avoid social media and focus on tuning into the spiritual energy within your higher self. Dreams may be enhanced over the next few days and we benefit from dream journaling. I think of the Moon card in the Tarot coming together with the 5 of Cups and Knight of Cups cards. We may be working through some themes that have been buried for a long time in our lives leading up until now. Any feelings we have repressed may be coming to the surface and demanding our attention.
Moon Sextile Neptune in Pisces 5:23 PM
Spiritual work is beneficial for us during this time and we may enjoy spending our evening hours tuning into our higher self through meditation or a mental and physical yoga practice.
Moon Opposition Mercury in Scorpio 5:33 PM
Tension between feeling grounded in our feelings, vs restless or emotional in our minds is enhanced and we could find ourselves working on integrating ourselves more into a balance between our feelings and our thoughts during this time. I am often asked what the difference is between feelings and thoughts, and my initial response is to ask you where do you experience feelings, and where do you experience thoughts. The head energy centers, and the lower body energy centers are all connected, but they are activated in different ways. The gut is it’s own sort of brain, and we often hold our “feeling” thoughts in our gut, and our more intentional thoughts in the head brain. The Moon rules the Sacral Chakra which is experienced in the lower diaphragm. Mercury rules the mind, which is held in the head. Understanding this separation and connection of feeling centers is imperative to the health of the body, and is why so many cultures have systems for understanding the energy centers of the astral body. The Sefirot and the Chakra systems are two examples of how we can begin to understand the many ways we experience or feelings and thoughts together and how they spawn off in the body in different manifestations of physical, mental, and spiritual experience.

Moon enters Gemini 7:30 PM
The Moon in Gemini brings our conscious awareness upward to our mind. We may be feeling restless and like we have a lot of insights or ideas spawning off into the atmosphere. It may be hard to keep up with our mental process and if we do not find a way to remain grounded in the evening hours, we could find ourselves feeling anxious. The way I think of anxiety is a manifestation of excess energy that has nowhere to “go.” This excess of energy whether it feels mental or physical will build up in our bodies in an unhealthy way if we do not find some way to put it to good use. For Gemini dominant people, it is often very beneficial to channel this anxious energy into physical activity, like a walk or going to the gym. Another positive way to expend this energy is through writing or artistic/creative projects. A lot of Gemini people I know are drawn to photography or art. Maybe getting out of the house and taking photos or experiencing a concert to museum may help you feel less scatterbrained.
Moon in Gemini
We continue to experience the influential energy of Gemini in regard to our mental process. I often think of a Butterfly when I envision the way Gemini manifests into the world, fluttering from one thing to the next and never staying anywhere too long. We may find ourselves feeling bored and restless if we are not engaging in some kind of activity that is stimulating for our minds. It is not beneficial to sit around feeling anxious. We benefit from being social, or at least engaged in activities that feed the mind and ground the body. This could be writing, physical activity, creating art/music in some way.

Moon Trine Mars in Libra 12:11 PM
Air meets air when our Moon in the mutable air sign of Gemini makes a trine to the cardinal air energy of Mars in Libra. This enhanced our mental process and could have us feeling very communicative or active when it comes to our ideas. We may have a lot of insight towards how we wish to apply ourselves moving forward in our lives. We need to be mindful with how we assert ourselves on others during this time as it could come out too strongly. I think of the Knight of Swords with this energy as it could be swift and cutting if we are not able to slow ourselves down.
Moon in Gemini
Moon Void of Course 7:14 PM
By today we may be ready to get out of the house and do something social. This is a beneficial day for expanding our minds and learning something new. We may enjoy reading a book, taking a class, or doing something that gets us outside of the usual routine. This is probably not a good day to wallow around the house as you could find yourself feeling anxious. Keep yourself busy today.

Moon Opposition Jupiter in Sagittarius 10:58 AM
We may feel a large need for growth and expansion in the morning hours. We benefit by changing our routine and possibly doing something spontaneous to get us out of any mundane funk we might find ourselves in.
Moon Trine Sun in Libra 7:14 PM
Our willpower and vitality is enhanced in the evening and we could find ourselves craving mental and emotional connection with others.
Moon enters Cancer 3:43 AM
The Moon in Cancer tends to bring us inward and we may find ourselves craving some alone time. This is a great day for self care and taking things slow.

Moon Sextile Uranus RX in Taurus 12:47 PM
This is a harmonious time for changing up our routine around the home and maybe trying something new in regard to our own self care routine or process.
Mercury in Scorpio Sextile Pluto in Capricorn 3:17 PM
We begin to work through empowering ourselves mentally and emotionally during this time. We have experienced a lot of changes this year but we know we are not exactly where we want to be yet. This can be a hard time when we feel we are “in-between” things right now. This transit enables us to lean into that energy in a way that enables us to see the benefits of this in-between period. There is a lot of healing happening under the surface that will enable us to be stronger in the future that in turn will give us the strength and empowerment needed to accomplish the bigger goal or vision.
Moon Square Mars in Libra 10:35 PM
Tension in the evening hours between our feelings and our mental process is enhanced. We could on the one hand feel like we want to rest, but we may feel a boost of mental energy in the evening that does not allow us to relax as much as we were hoping. We may benefit from doing some evening physical activity like Kundalini Yoga to move heat through the body and work through getting your lymphatic system engaged. Moving this stagnant or blocked energy around will help you to feel more clear headed and grounded when you decide to go to sleep for the night. Those of us who like to write may also benefit from using this boost of energy to work on any writing projects we are doing.
Moon in Cancer
With so many intense transits during the day we may find ourselves benefitting from a quiet day at home. This is a good time for self care and getting grounded. Don’t exert too much energy, slow things down, and chip away at your responsibilities rather than trying to rush through them.
