Monday, July 1, 2024


As the week begins, the Moon is in Taurus, the fixed Earth sign. The fixed signs seek stability, in Taurus desired stability involves practical tangible things. Once we find a secure environment we do all we can to keep it as it is. Focus on securing and stabilizing your relationships and your inner world.

At 12:19 PM EDT, the Moon conjuncts Mars, adding dynamic energy to the day. Your drive and ambition are heightened and you are urged to move forward decisively. You may feel a surge of motivation, prompting you to address issues with determination, if not confidence. While this powerful conjunction may stir strong feelings, it’s an opportunity to channel your passions constructively.

Questions to ask yourself today:

  • Do I feel more empathetic and emotional when the Moon is in Cancer?
  • How will I take advantage of the surge of motivation when the Moon conjuncts Mars shortly after noon today?
  • Who do I feel protective of and how will I express that today?




Tuesday, July 2, 2024


Neptune has been direct since early December 2023, early this morning it stations retrograde at 29’55” Pisces. It was so close to entering Aries and yet, now it has changed course and won’t enter Aries until March 2025.  While Neptune is retrograde (until early December 2024) we may revisit issues of mystical awareness or confusion that we thought we had left behind or moved beyond. During this time we must reflect on our deepest spiritual understanding and the places we may have become stuck in illusions.

Before entering Leo (8:50 AM EDT), Mercury trines Neptune, enhancing our creativity and imaginative thinking. This supports intuitive communication, making it an ideal time for artistic expression or exploring new ideas. As Mercury enters Leo our minds, thoughts, and words become bold and confident. Mercury will remain in Leo until July 25th. This shift encourages us to express ourselves with flair and enthusiasm.

At 11:50 AM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini, bringing curiosity and adaptability. This is a great time to engage in conversations about emotions or to gain emotional satisfaction through conversations and learning new things.

Finally, at 9:41 PM EDT, Venus trines Saturn, bringing stability and attention to our relationships. This aspect helps solidify bonds and encourages commitment, making it a wonderful time to focus on lasting connections.

Questions to ask yourself today:

  • How will Neptune retrograde influence my intuition and my perceptions of reality?
  • How will I use Mercury trine Neptune to open myself to imaginative thinking?
  • How will I use Mercury in Leo to bring more fun and creativity into my conversations with others?



Wednesday, July 3, 2024


Today marks the most challenging day of the week. At 3:26 am EDT, Mercury opposes Pluto, bringing intensity and change through the power of words.  This opposition creates a dynamic where words and conversations may uncover hidden and possibly disturbing information while provoking powerful pushback. This is a time of heightened awareness, asking that we be mindful of how we express ourselves and the impact of our words. Because this stressed-out Mercury rules today’s Moon (in Gemini) there is an added layer of complexity. Curiosity and a powerful desire for connection are strong yet it requires careful navigation. With the potential for power struggles and shocking revelations, we must balance open communication with thoughtful attention and consideration.

In considering the full cycle of Mercury and Pluto, think back to October 16, 2023. That began a cycle of attending to power, noticing power, or speaking to power. Whatever began at that time, today we understand and are aware of how far we have come.

Questions to ask yourself today:

  • How will I harness the power of my words and use that power responsibly?
  • What powerful and significant conversation began in mid-October?
  • What conversations or thoughts had my attention in mid-October 2023

At 4:51 pm EDT, the Moon enters Cancer and your emotions shift inward, drawing attention to your emotional world, family, and home. What is important this evening is to nurture yourself and your loved ones as you create comfort and security in your environment. Take time to slow down, reflect, and prioritize emotional connections. Create a warm, supportive environment that encourages deep introspection and care.

  • How will I use the Moon in Gemini to enhance my communications and curiosities?
