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 coming to a close in the light-hearted optimistic sign of Sagittarius. At 1:15 PM EDT, she enters somber hard-working Capricorn where she spends the remainder of the day settling in without incident. You can get a great deal accomplished this afternoon and evening. 
  • Tuesday: Today with the Moon in ambitious hard-working Capricorn you can expect to pass through some interesting and challenging emotional states. Look for excitement in the early afternoon, and a certain amount of rancor this evening. At 11:26 PM EDT, we reach the First Quarter Square phase of the moon. When you start the day tomorrow, take some action to push forward toward a personal goal.
  • Wednesday: Today begins with a challenge to your authority or with you challenging the authority of another. Stay out of these quick-moving power dynamics if possible. At 4:48 PM EDT, the Moon enters Aquarius bringing a more intellectual humanitarian focus to the next few days.
  • Thursday: Your values and communication skills support an easy movement for the majority of the workday. At 4:51 PM EDT with the Moon Sq., Uranus you may encounter anxiety or a change of perspective. Don’t make any rash decisions.
  • Friday: The Aquarius Moon makes lovely aspects today along with the lovely trine aspect formed between the Sun and Jupiter. Today is undoubtedly the high point of the week. At 8:30 AM EDT, the Moon joins with expansive rewarding Jupiter, and three minutes later the Moon trine the Sun. Enjoy this lovely day by engaging with others with an open heart and mind. At 10:22 PM EDT, the Moon enters Pisces pulling your emotional perspective into deeply mystical waters.
  • Saturday: With the Moon floating within the intangible depths of Pisces, emotional sensitivity stands out in stark relief this weekend. Spend time in meditation or simple daydreaming. If you stay up late you may encounter a pleasant surprise before bedtime.
  • Sunday: Deep sensitivity continues today going to mystical places as the Pisces Moon joins with Neptune at 1 PM EDT. Allow yourself a low-key day to create art, watch movies or spend time on your meditation cushion.

The Moon continues passing through light-hearted optimistic Sagittarius this morning. This is a funloving sign that seeks adventure and understanding. The morning should pass by simply and without complication. 
At 1:15 PM EDT, your emotions take a turn into more serious territory as the Moon enters Capricorn bringing a somber hard-working edge to the next few days. The transition from fun-loving Sagittarius to serious-minded Capricorn isn’t always an easy transition. However, with the Moon making no difficult aspects to other planets, today the transition should be smooth and easy.
You can get a tremendous amount of work accomplished this afternoon and evening. Remember to stick with projects and plans that have been in the works for some time. With Mercury still retrograde it is not yet time to begin new endeavors. Focus on tieing up loose ends. 
_The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course from 12:31 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 1:15 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

Just when you were enjoying the upbeat Sagittarius Moon she shifts gears and enters the serious territory of Capricorn. Your most adult self, the cautious and mature side, will be required over the next few days. Frivolous fun must be set aside as you face your most sober responsibilities 
At 12:33 PM EDT, the Moon forms a trine aspect with Uranus. Keep your eyes open for a unique and surprising idea that may help you reach your goals or get your work done. This won’t bring back the fun of yesterday, but it will help you stay fully engaged in the tasks at hand. 
At 8:27 PM EDT, with the Moon square Mars, you may feel frustrated and have a difficult time letting go of work for the day. Some gentle exercise, yoga, or a sexual connection will settle the anxiety and help you sleep tonight
At 11:26 PM EDT, we reach the First Quarter Square of the Lunar Cycle. This may bring frustration as well with the Sun and Moon squaring off against each other. There is something that you must do in order to go in the direction you desire. The action necessary may not be what you want to do. Think it through and keep your desired outcome in mind. It isn’t necessary to take that action until tomorrow.

Today begins with Pluto conjunct the Capricorn Moon, offering a challenge to your authority. On the other hand, you may be challenging the authority of another. Don’t engage with these quickly passing power dynamics. Keep your attention on necessary accomplishments. 
At 3:26 PM EDT Venus, the planet of love and money forms a sextile aspect to Saturn. You may find that your interactions with others today are serious and productive. This is a great day to explore ideas about the future of your romantic or financial circumstances. Your approach will be moderate and more traditional than usual. You won’t be interested in taking risks. No decisions need to be made, but exploring various possibilities now will help stabilize your situation in the coming months
At 4:48 PM EDT, the Moon enters Aquarius allowing you to focus more on intellectual ideas and less on accomplishment and hard work over the next few days. You may notice that you feel quite objective this evening. Your emotions are not running the show as your intellect and wild thoughts have taken the reigns.

Today is a rather quiet day with only the Aquarius Moon to consider. When the Moon is in Aquarius you can expect the energy of innovation to show up in your circumstances. Pay attention to any unexpected inspiration that comes through conversations or connections with others. 
The Moon in Aquarius has us so wrapped up in our thoughts and intellect that it is easy to forget emotional warmth and connection. It is easier than you may think to behave with coldness or lack of sympathy today. This only means that your mind is more active than your emotions. With the Moon trine Mercury (1:06 PM EDT) and square Uranus (4:51 PM EDT), this tendency is more likely than ever today.
Pay attention to what others need so you don’t leave them in the dust. A cool rather distant friendliness easily outranks close emotional connections. Don’t make rash decisions today as you are missing an important component of human warmth. Mercury is still retrograde as well.

Today looks to me like the best day of the week, by far. We begin the day with the Aquarius Moon making lovely aspects to Mars, Jupiter, and the Sun. At 8:30 AM EDT, the Moon joins with expansive rewarding Jupiter, and three minutes later the Moon trine the Sun. Enjoy this lovely day by engaging with others and planning ways to help smooth the path to the future. 
At 7:46 AM EDT, the Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion. I think of this as warmth meets expansion in a flow of lovely positivity. The day will unfold in harmony and you may feel radiant warmth and generosity to and from others. You may feel more optimistic, confident, and exuberant than you have in months. It will be easier than you expect to express your most philosophical ideas. You may find others are more interested in exchanging interesting ideas. 
At 10:22 PM EDT, the Moon leaves the land of the intellect to enter the sensitive emotional waters of Pisces. You can expect the weekend to hold more emotion and dreaminess than usual.

This morning you wake to a gentle Pisces Moon suggesting the importance of taking time to rest. You may need to meditate, dream, and simply regenerate your entire system. The Moon will remain in this sensitive adaptable sign through the weekend. Don’t let yourself get pulled into activities you don’t really have the physical or emotional energy for.

At 9:23 PM EDT Mercury (retrograde) forms a sextile aspect to Venus. This suggests an easy rapport with loved ones. A simple conversation engaged in with kindness can soothe more distress than you may realize. Make it a point to engage with others in gentle slow activities. You can learn a lot in this way.

Due to a sextile aspect from the Moon to Uranus at 11:15 PM EDT, you may encounter a pleasant surprise before bedtime.

Deep sensitivity continues today and finds its way to mystical places as the Pisces Moon joins with Neptune at 1 PM EDT. Allow yourself a low-key day to create art, watch movies or spend time on your meditation cushion. You may feel tired, emotional, and vulnerable during this time. Silence, a nap, self-care, and time in meditation will be soothing.
At 8:12 AM EDT, the Sun forms a challenging square aspect to Pluto the planet of power and destruction. You may feel that others are ganging up on you, being stubborn, controlling, and simply getting in your way. Minor misunderstandings or disagreements can take on a life of their own. Do your best to sidestep unproductive and frustrating power struggles. This tension will not last beyond today. Ask yourself if engaging in the battle is worth the potential fallout. 
Mercury is retrograde, the Moon is in Pisces, you probably are not seeing the full picture. Question everything about any challenges that arise. Is it worth fighting for? Is it time to release? Is it time to hold steady and wait for this to pass? 
_The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 7:24 PM EDT until she enters areas on Monday morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._


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.
