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 man
