Arise, go forth and make it happen. The start of the work week is driven by an enterprising Moon in Capricorn, perfect for taking care of business. Even better: no big bumps in the Moon’s path today; it makes easy contact with Mercury, Venus and Neptune (communication, social expression and vision). Not only that, but a focused alignment between Mercury and Venus in Scorpio at 4:20 PM ET supports deep thoughts and communication involving worth, women and aesthetics. Time to lobby for a controlling interest? If you have a planet around 9 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo or Aquarius, this especially applies to you.
Compared to last week, exact planetary patterns are a breeze, most of which feature mental Mercury. Plenty of buzz this week, especially with the building tension suggested by next Tuesday’s annual face-off between the Sun and rebel Uranus, followed by the Full Moon on Wednesday:
- TUESDAY — Moon makes its weekly clash with Pluto at 4:54 AM ET; First Quarter Moon happens at 2:02 PM ET. What was washed away last week, and how are you going to make it work? Moon goes void at 5:49 PM ET — chill until 3:36 AM ET on…
- WEDNESDAY — when the Moon enters “who’s yer buddy?” Aquarius, looking to show off its social significance. Moon’s weekly clash with rebel Uranus at 5:17 AM ET may get you out of bed with a jolt.
- THURSDAY — Moon continues through Aquarius, with no void to mess with your efforts to move forward in a straight line. An impassioned meet-up between the Moon and Mars at 7:50 AM ET sets the tone for the day. A declaration of independence? By then we’ll be feeling the inspired potential of…
- FRIDAY’s inspired harmony between Mercury and Neptune, exact at 5:48 AM ET. Note your dreams and chill between 8:27 AM ET and 4:20 PM ET, when the Aquarius Moon will be void. That mean no freaking out over a perceived crisis that may crop up, however confrontational it may seem. The verbal stiletto you may encounter comes courtesy of a clash between Mercury and Mars, exact at 1:23 PM ET…and you are remembering that Venus is still very much retrograde, aren’t you? This explains why social graces may be nowhere to be found. Friday night and the weekend are brought to you by the Moon in Pisces. Go with the flow while you can.
Speaking of Venus retrograde, if you’d like to know how this one is likely to affect your horoscope, toss $44 into my Cosmic Tip Jar (go to this page and look for the gold DONATE button on the left hand side), and I will happily send you a few paragraphs of insights. Fun fact: on the day I first posted this opportunity, everyone who responded had Sun in Sagittarius. After the first day, other Sun Signs stepped up to the plate — but no Sagittarians. I wonder what that means.
For longer, in-depth consultations about you, you and your significant other and/or you and your adorable children, look here.
The plan is to send a clown car full of news later today. Let’s see if the Capricorn Moon will help make that happen.
Thank you for reading this forecast.
