Monday, July 29, 2019:

The Moon enters sensitive Cancer this morning at 7:31 AM EDT. When the Moon is in Cancer we usually seek connection, comfort, and family. 

This whole notion may be turned on its head as the Sun square Uranus shakes the ground beneath your feet. As you sense a powerful, unknowable change approaching, you experience excitement or anxiety. You understand instinctively that this change will shift your forward trajectory. 

Stay flexible in your approach and calm in your communications. Notice where you are experiencing angst and restlessness. Be proactive in welcoming and directing change. You may be inspired by an intense need for freedom and independence. You will demand your right to defiantly go your own way. Keep your eyes open, and pay attention to unexpected epiphanies. 

Sun square Uranus is a powerful transit that deserves your attention. Remember that everyone you encounter is on the same unstable ground. Be kind.


The Gemini Moon is void-of-course until she enters Cancer at 7:31 AM EDT. This suggests that what begins or occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.




Tuesday, July 30, 2019:

The Moon’s continued movement through Cancer suggests a day of moodiness and sensitivity. You will find yourself alternating between various emotional states, oscillating between sentimental, anxious, moody, domestic, affectionate, or sentimental can leave you exhausted by the end of the day.

Cancer is ruled by the fast-moving Moon causing the rapidly changing emotions. Devote yourself to developing deep connections with family (bio or chosen) members. Cook together or spend time on other domestic duties.

With the Moon opposing Saturn and Pluto, a serious effort may be required to maintain, gain, or regain trust. Don’t underestimate the importance of doing what it takes.


The Cancer Moon is void-of-course after 11:33 PM EDT. This suggests that what begins or occurs after this time will not have a significant impact.




Wednesday, July 31, 2019:

The Moon enters Leo this morning at 9:19 AM EDT, shifting the emotional tone from tender and moody to playful and dramatic. Now is a great time to take a creative risk and allow others to see who you are when you have nothing to hide. 

Leo can bring out the most arrogant, self-centered side of your nature or the most generous open-hearted side. It is up to you to decide who you want to be.

Think about what it was like to be a small child before the world stifled your creativity. Seek that way of being in the coming days. Find children to play with. Let them teach you what it means to live with open abandon. 

The Leo New Moon comes at the very end of the day. You will notice that some folks will talk about it today and others won’t mention it until tomorrow. It depends on your time zone.

It is always best to do your New Moon ritual following the exact time of the New Moon, so wait until tomorrow for that.


The Cancer Moon is void-of-course until she enters Leo at 9:19 AM EDT. This suggests that what begins or occurs before this time will not have a significant impact.


~~New Moon Ritual ~~


Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Leo New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of play, expression, and generosity.

Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself as you are at the moment. Light another candle as inspiration for what you intend to create. Take a moment to focus as you light the first candle. Then as you light the second candle, imagine drawing toward you what you want to create.  Physically bring the two candles closer together.

Do this each day for two weeks until the Aquarius Full Moon on August 15th. At that time bring the candles fully together as you acknowledge the result of what you have created.




Thursday, August 1, 2019:

As you start the day, take a moment to breathe a sigh of relief. Mercury has turned around at 23 degrees Cancer and is now crawling forward.

It will take a few days for Mercury to pick up speed but the halting, backward motion is behind us. Over the coming days, get back on track and move forward in your projects and communications.

Take time to review your experience of this Mercury retrograde period (since July 7th). Did you manage to get previously unfinished details and enterprises completed? Start and rev your engine, put yourself into gear and begin forward movement. This should feel very good. 

The Moon is playful and fun in Leo, forming a lovely trine to expansive Jupiter this morning. Avoid frustration and anger by engaging in active physical play (sports or lovemaking) this afternoon as the Moon joins with Mars.


The Leo Moon is void-of-course after 4:47 PM EDT. This suggests that what begins or occurs after this time will not have a significant impact.



Friday, August 2, 2019:

Today may mirror the challenges of Monday as Venus now steps up to a square aspect to Uranus. You may find yourself questioning the stability of your closest love relationships.

The challenge may come from you or your partner. You will each feel an increase in desire for freedom, excitement, or simply for something new. 

If you have recently felt restricted or tied down to a partner, make sure you take plenty of space today. If you don’t get off on your own you may feel backed into a corner and end up lashing out in a way you will regret down the line. 

Stir up some excitement with your partner. This is not the day to engage in the same old patterns you constantly go back to. Look for what is unusual and gets your blood stirred up. 

Don’t take unnecessary risks with money or with love. Leave your credit cards at home. If you are in a committed relationship, don’t call that man who gave you his number. It would be so easy to act on impulse only to regret it later. 

Today’s Virgo Moon will help you be more discriminating in your actions and yet may also heighten your critical voice.


The Leo Moon is void-of-course until she enters Virgo at 9:21 AM EDT. This suggests that what begins or occurs before this time will not have significant impact.




Saturday, August 3, 2019:

This weekend is not a time for beach parties or great excitement. Remember that the Moon sets the tone for each day and changes sign every 2 ½ days. 

With the Moon in Virgo, you will find yourself more serious, dedicated, and thoughtful than usual. You will notice yourself being drawn toward practical activities.

You may find yourself organizing and analyzing everything you do. Don’t allow perfectionism to stop progress. Make sure that you allow ‘good-enough’ to be good enough. 

You may also feel more critical and detail-oriented. Work on projects that will benefit from paying particular attention to details. There are so many things that need to get done. Weed the garden, wash the car, clear out the garage.

Enjoy the process from a mindset of meditative awareness.




Sunday, August 4, 2019:

I hope you got all your productive tasks done yesterday and are ready to have a more social day today. 

At 9:30 AM EDT the Moon enters diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra. Today is a day to engage with others socially.

Commit yourself to fairness and pleasure in all your interactions. Offer the gifts of kindness and beauty to everyone you encounter.

It may be difficult to take a firm stand but perhaps you don’t need to. Let yourself off the hook. Rest in pleasure. There is always another day to take action or speak up. It will be easier to go with the flow than to force any issue.

This evening supports romantic or diplomatic endeavors, socializing, and creating art. Remember that we all desire companionship, kindness, and beauty. Enjoy cultural activities with friends. A trip to a museum, concert, or a small gathering with compatible others is the perfect way to spend the evening.


The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 12:27 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 9:30 AM EDT. This suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.





* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets.  I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods.  I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.



There is something out there. Astrology is like a game of chess with an invisible partner. We set out the board and the rules, make a move, and then find that the pieces are moving, as if by an invisible hand.” ~ Noel Tyl
