The Changing Moon this Week
The Moon sets the emotional tone as she moves through the Zodiac day-to-day. It takes approximately 28 days to traverse the entire Zodiac. Learning to work with this rhythm will help you align with and relax into an easier flow with the Universe. The luminous Moon spends approximately 2 ½ days in each sign before she moves on to the next.
Monday: The week begins with the Moon in dependable, efficient Virgo, making it easier than usual to head back to work after the weekend. With the New Moon coming on Thursday we are heading into the Dark of the Moon (the Balsamic Phase) in the Darkest time of the year. Make sure you allow yourself plenty of time in quiet contemplation this week. At 7:11 PM EDT, the Moon enters Libra offering an evening to connect with your partner or good friend.
Tuesday: With the Moon in agreeable Libra, beauty, diplomacy, and harmony come into focus. In these dark days, as we approach the Scorpio New Moon, focus on these issues within yourself. Don’t expect others to hold the key to your contentment. Saturn trine the Moon this morning helps you do just that.
Wednesday: For the bulk of the day the Moon continues through Libra, seeking beauty in this dark time. The aspects that the Moon makes today support deep thinking and powerful emotions. Spend time alone to consider the seeds to plant at tomorrow’s Scorpio New Moon. The Moon enters Scorpio, deepening your emotions at 8:53 PM EDT.
Thursday: Today’s Scorpio New Moon (5:15 PMEDT) may bring difficulties and intensity. Saturn challenges the New Moon with a sense of restriction as Uranus offers intense revelations. Make a commitment to honesty as you expect and welcome the unexpected. The seed you plant must involve looking at your own darkness as you develop and maintain a profound level of personal integrity. Your New Moon ritual should be done late this evening or anytime on Friday.
Friday: You still have time to do your New Moon ritual anytime today. With the Moon in Scorpio be sure to bury those seeds deeply and with clear intention and high integrity. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 8:53 PM EDT, ushering in a few lighter days as the Moon begins its waxing phase.
Saturday: With the Moon in Sagittarius for the weekend, it is time to take a road trip, lighten up the mood, and spend time with friends. The past few days have been heavy, you can begin to shake that off, at least for the weekend!
Sunday: You may wake this morning with interesting dreams of exploration and travel as the Sagittarius Moon forms a square to Neptune at 5:46 AM EDT. A sextile to Jupiter at 9:44 AM EDT offers possibilities for fun and pleasure. Join with friends, enjoy the expansive feel in the air. At 9:03 PM EDT, the Moon dips into Capricorn calling for a few more serious days ahead.
Sunday morning at 2 AM we change the clocks from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time. Don’t forget.

GRACE AND OBJECTIVITY
Shortly after midnight last night Mercury formed a trine aspect to Jupiter encouraging you to speak your mind. Mercury is in diplomatic Libra and Jupiter is in innovative Aquarius. The conversations between them will prove to be a benefit to everyone involved. Don’t hesitate to have an important conversation today. Libra holds the energy of diplomacy, balance, and grace while Aquarius holds the energy of humanitarianism and objectivity. With this in mind, you will be able to approach even the most challenging topics with good results.
The week begins with the Moon in dependable, efficient Virgo, making it easier than usual to head back to work after the weekend. With the New Moon coming on Thursday we are heading into the Dark of the Moon (the Balsamic Phase) in the Darkest time of the year. Make sure you allow yourself plenty of time in quiet contemplation this week.
At 7:11 PM EDT, the Moon joins Mercury in Libra bringing the day to a close on a positive note. Take advantage of this to connect with balance, kindness, and charm to your partner or closest loved ones.
_The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 1:01 PM EDT until she enters Libra at 7:11 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

RELEASE A MISUNDERSTANDING
You may start the morning wondering if the easy thinking and simple conversations of yesterday have backfired. With Mercury square Pluto early this morning, thoughts, ideas, and conversations may turn difficult and heavy. This may involve a conversation with someone in your life, or it may be a conversation between different parts of yourself. Either way, pay attention to the hard dark thoughts and ideas that you notice are tracking the day.
Use the ease of yesterday’s conversations to support the forward motion today. Perhaps there is something you can do to help release your misunderstanding or the misunderstanding of someone else. Problematic thinking or unhelpful thoughts can be transformed into powerful understanding today. Pay attention and allow your mind to shift.
The Moon in agreeable Libra also helps to shift your thinking as you seek harmony and connection. As we approach the Scorpio New Moon, change your own patterns rather than expecting others to hold the key to your contentment.

BEAUTY AND LOVE IN THE DARK
Most of today is highlighted by the Moon continuing through Libra, seeking beauty and love in this dark time of the Balsamic Moon Phase. The Libra Moon longs for simple, uncomplicated connections and you will enjoy some time with a friend that fills that role in your life. However, don’t linger there as you need time today for deep thinking and powerful emotions as we approach the New Moon. Spend a portion of the day alone to consider the seeds you want to plant at tomorrow’s Scorpio New Moon.
At 8:53 PM EDT, the Moon drops into Scorpio, deepening your emotions and preparing for the new beginning of tomorrow’s New Moon. Climb into bed early with an intense lover, a deeply emotional movie, or a powerful conversation with your personal journal.
_The Libra Moon is void-of-course from 6:33 PM. EDT until she enters Scorpio at 8:53 PM. EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

SCORPIO NEW MOON: POWER & INNOVATION
A powerful New Moon is in store for us today. The Scorpio New Moon is exact at 5:15 PM EDT and is complicated by two significant contacts that the Moon makes. A square to Saturn this morning suggests that there is work to be done to support the metaphorical seed of empowerment that will be planting today. The opposition to Uranus brings the suggestion of intense revelations that will impact the growth of the seed itself.
The seed to be planted needs both structure and innovation. They may seem to be pulling you in opposing directions but both are necessary. A middle path that includes both stability and wild chaos is possible and worth the effort.
At 7:57 PM EDT, the Sun opposes Uranus bringing us to the halfway point of the cycle between them that began on April 30, 2021. Perhaps you remember beginning a path toward personal freedom at that time. How far have you come in seeking self-determination since that time?
Some folks will find this energy very exciting and freeing, others will find it hard to manage the unexpected anxiety of change. Over the next few days, things can change rapidly in ways that you hadn’t anticipated. You may feel a strong urge for freedom, excitement, or rebellion. You may long to break free from routines that have outlived their usefulness.

The Moon is now in Sagittarius beginning to wax toward next week’s First Quarter Moon and along its path through yet another cycle. With the Moon in Sagittarius, your emotions feel lighter and you are ready to look beyond yourself and toward new horizons.
With the Moon, Mercury, and Venus all ingressing into a new sign today you may feel a bit off-balance. Ingress is simply a fancy word that means a planet moves from one sign to the next. At 6:43 AM EDT Venus leaves Sagittarius behind to enter Capricorn. Venus has been in exploring and having a good time in Sagittarius since October 7th. She will stay in Capricorn until March 6, 2022. The reason Venus remains so long in this serious Saturn ruled sign is because she will be retrograde from December 19, 2021 – January 29, 2022. Whatever house in your chart holds Capricorn will undergo serious reevaluation over the coming months. Today you will get the first taste of Venus in this serious sign. During this transit, you will find yourself valuing money, productivity, and ambition more than you have in some time.
At 6:34 PM EDT Mercury leaves Libra behind to join the Sun and Mars in Scorpio. This gathering of the Sun, Mars, and Mercury focuses your attention on unearthing hidden traumas or treasures. We are still in the intense and powerful Scorpio season. Wherever Mercury moves your thoughts and intellectual attention follow. In Scorpio, your attention is on depth, intensity, and transformation.
At 8:53 PM EDT, the Moon leaves the depth of Scorpio to bring our emotions into the lighter more explorative sign of Sagittarius. The weekend will offer more fun, socializing, and exploration.
_The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 12:09 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 8:53 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

SHOW YOUR HAND
With the Moon in Sagittarius this weekend, it is time to take a road trip! Lighten up the mood, spend time with friends, go on an adventure. The past few days have been heavy, now it is time to shake that off and enjoy the weekend! If physical travel isn’t in the cards for you this weekend, go on a metaphorical trip. Study philosophical perspectives and explore new ideas. Even watching travel documentaries will fit the bill.
At 11:58 AM EDT Mercury in Scorpio forms a sextile aspect to Venus in Capricorn. This suggests that you have the opportunity to speak deeply and seriously of your values and love. Look no further than today if you have been considering how or when to ask for support, present an idea, or declare your love for someone. Today is the day to show your hand. This is a wonderful day for anything that involves socializing and sharing ideas with others.

PLEASURE, GENEROSITY, FUN
You may wake this morning with interesting dreams of exploration and travel as the Sagittarius Moon formed a square aspect to Neptune at 5:46 AM EDT. Don’t be in a hurry to start the day. Stay in bed late and enjoy that dreamy pleasure. The morning only gets better when at 9:44 AM EDT the Moon forms a sextile to expansive Jupiter offering more possibilities for fun and pleasure. This is a great day to spend in simple social gatherings. The mood is likely to be light and pleasurable with folks feeling demonstrative, generous, and affable.
At 9:03 PM EDT, the Moon dips into Capricorn dropping the mood as the weekend comes to a close. The next few days will bring more focus on accomplishments and effort. But what a weekend it has been.

In these weekly reports, I explore 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 give rise to fleeting moods. 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.
