Moonday Monday, Your Weekly Forecast 10/27-11/3

This week is our last week of October and marks many death festivities celebrated amongst many cultures and religions. I was happy to write an article on the different festivities celebrated to honor death over at Ritual Shoppe's blog, the link to that article is:

This week Mercury stations Rx in Scorpio, and on Halloween no less, as well as our planet of beauty and love, Venus, enters the wanderlust seeker sign of Sagittarius.

We may start the week out feeling introverted, sluggish and slow, but this weekend we should get a productive pick me up, and we could feel ourselves gaining some of our momentum back.

There is a lot of room for communication problems in the weeks ahead, most of us have been feeling it already. Move slow, try not to project too much onto others, and take adequate time to work through your own emotional process in your own way.

Tarot Cards for the week:

Death, The Tower , 4 of Cups, 5 of Cups, 6 of cups, 10 of Swords, Knight of Cups

Monday 10/28

Moon in Scorpio

Starting the week out in the waxing shadow of the New Moon could have us feeling sluggish, groggy, and tired. The Moon has its Fall in Scorpio, and in the New Moon phase, we feel a need to turn inward and not exert too much energy.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Sun in Scorpio Opposition Uranus RX in Taurus 1:14 AM

Our sense of self and vitality is tested today. We may have unexpected occurrences to our work day that disrupt what we had planned, or things may not go as smoothly as we were hoping. We also may have sudden insights towards changes taking place or changes that need to take place in our lives right now.

Moon Sextile Saturn in Capricorn 2:19 PM

This is a harmonious flow of energy for the afternoon and we may find ourselves able to be productive and practical about getting our mundane tasks taken care of. We may also find ourselves more grounded emotionally than we have been in previous days.

Moon Trine Neptune RX in Pisces 3:52 PM

Our connection to our intuition and the spiritual realm is enhanced during the hours of this transit. This is a positive energy for creativity if we can channel the visionary aspect of Neptune into something substantial. We may have a hard time with discernment right now, so this might not be the best day for making any large decisions.

Moon Sextile Pluto in Capricorn 11:32 PM

A need for growth and transformation is enhanced and we are being faced with emotional processes that are asking us to let go.

Tuesday 10/29

Moon in Scorpio

Moon Void of Course 10:34 AM

Moon enters Sagittarius 2:58 PM

With the Moon in Scorpio for the first part of the morning, it could be hard for us to feel grounded or contained emotionally. Feelings of insecurity could pop up and we benefit from dream journaling or working through any insights we have about why these feelings may be coming up for us. With the Moon in Sagittarius for the last half of the day we benefit from breaking out of our routine and doing things differently. Our minds also benefit from us focusing on new information and challenging ourselves to expand and grow in new ways.

We could feel a deep need for connection in the early morning hours with a partner or loved one.

Wednesday 10/30

Moon in Sagittarius

A need for freedom and expansion is enhanced today, we benefit from being open to changing our routine and finding ways to expand our hearts and our minds.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Mercury in Scorpio Conjunct Venus in Scorpio 3:04 PM

This conjunction will be a focus over the next couple days and has us evaluating our relationships in a microscopic way. Things that we have suppressed come to surface over the next few days and we may be dealing with some heavy emotional realities about people we love. This could be trauma around an ex, a friend, a lover, or a family member coming to surface. We are easily triggered in our relationships and we benefit from finding healthy ways to work through what is coming up for us during this time.

Moon Square Neptune in Pisces 6:50 PM

We may feel a large need to escape mundane reality in the evening hours and we benefit from listening to music, doing spiritual work, and meditating on getting ourselves grounded in a healthy way.

Moon Sextile Mars in Libra 9:10 PM

Moon in Sagittarius makes a harmonious aspect to Mars in Libra, while Mars can have a hard time directing its energy in a straightforward manner in Libra, this energy is beneficial for applying our minds to learning something new. If you are in the throws of studying, working on a project, or educating yourself, this energy will help your ability to absorb a lot of information. It may feel all over the place, and ungrounded, but you’ll be surprised how much you are able to take on if you apply yourself without too much investment in the outcome.


Thursday 10/31

Moon Void of Course 7:29 AM

Moon enters Capricorn 7:38 PM

The Moon is in detriment in Capricorn and can have us feeling overly critical of our feelings. We also may find ourselves beginning to tune in more to practical matters. There is a potential to feel weighed down and sluggish in the days ahead.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius 7:29 AM

A large desire for freedom is enhanced in the morning hours and we may enjoy changing up our routine.

Mercury will be retrograde in Scorpio until November 20th and there will be an emphasis on communication in relationships as it is in conjunction to Venus in Scorpio and a harmonious Sextile to Juno. We may find ourselves ready to make changes in our relationships, or have difficult conversations we may have been avoiding. The Tower card and the Death card will be a vibe over the next few weeks, as well as 4 of Cups, 5 of Cups, 6 of Cups and Knight of Cups.

We have an easier time discerning our emotions and sense of self within them. We may feel an increased energy in the afternoon and we benefit from this.

Venus enters Sagittarius 1:25 PM

Venus in Sagittarius opens us up to expand our hearts in new ways. I think of the Page of Wands card in the Tarot as an example of this energy. We benefit from seeing the world as our oyster and exploring in a fun, adventurous, and creative way.

Saturday 11/2

Moon in Capricorn

Moon Void of Course 10:40 PM

We continue to benefit from taking a grounded approach to our weekend activities. With Mercury RX in effect, and the Moon in detriment, things may not go the way we had planned, but we can try and remain practical and detached about it. We may feel like we want to try and control the day, this is not advised.

We may enjoy socializing into the evening hours, or having a date night with a loved one doing something new, exciting, adventurous and expansive.

Sunday 11/4

The Moon in Aquarius could have us feeling passionate about how we perceive the injustices in the world and where we feel like we want to advocate change. Aquarius energy enjoys breaking down the old way so that a new, more progressive way can enter. We also may feel overly social. We could find ourselves on the computer or social media a little too much today.

Strong Aspects During the Day PDT

Moon Sextile Venus in Sagittarius 7:42 AM

This reinforces our need for connection and socialization with others. We may enjoy getting out of town for the day or doing something with a group of friends.

Moon Square Uranus in Taurus 11:50 AM

Emotional and mental tension during the hours of this transit is enhanced and we could have a hard time feeling grounded. We may have some disruptions to our plans that we are not prepared for. We benefit from letting go of any need for control and trying to go with the flow as much as possible.
