We are in the waxing Crescent Moon phase and moving toward the First Quarter Moon on Friday as we build up to the Full Moon on the 18th. Coming off a New Moon, the light of the thin crescent was visible low in the western sky just after dusk on Friday. What a sweet sight, to see the light re-emerging after the total darkness last week!
The current waxing Moon energy delivers the promise of new beginnings and is a perfect time for the growth of an idea or a project! This is increased by the Moon entering Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, this evening. Whatever you had been holding off from starting for the previous two weeks is the thing you need to be putting a lot of effort and energy into now. It doesn't have to be just one thing you want to begin, but there is a caution not to start too many things or act recklessly right now because you'll need to be able to sustain a certain level of activity to make things happen.
Back to this week... We get a good jump on the work week, courtesy of that Aries Moon in effect all day Monday and Tuesday. Just be careful to avoid power struggles early in the morning when the Moon and Pluto square off. Apply your intense efforts to transforming how you encourage others to work with you or how well you can bite your lip, as this is a classic aspect for secrecy, suspicions and jealousy. Try not to get sucked in to the unsettled feelings!
The Sun and Moon are actively supporting each other Tuesday allowing harmonious feelings to align with our thoughts and letting contentment settle in. Use this day to make productive gains on what you want to accomplish; it's an easier day to gain much needed co-operation from others than Monday.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday morning are under the Taurus Moon influence when people tend to be more cautious and concerned with comfort or the status quo. Financial concerns fall into this realm, as do things pertaining to gardens, the earth and anything tactile. This is the time for following through on projects already begun, really applying that elbow grease to continuing your hard work. It is not typically a good time to try and get others to change their minds about helping you, especially if their resources are involved, so exercise restraint and wait for a better time if you need to ask for something. Try to enjoy Mother Nature one of these days with a walk outside.
Avoid self-deception and feelings of vulnerability Friday afternoon as Taurus Moon makes it's last aspect to nebulous Neptune, beginning a three hour void-of-course (VOC) moon phase before it enters communicative Gemini at 5:20 p.m. The zodiac sign of the Twins is an Air sign bringing with it a mental focus, especially devoted to talking, writing and socializing. Friday night is a good night for an intellectual gathering or a poetry reading... maybe getting a new book to read.
Saturday finds talkative Gemini moon interacting all over the place - expect to have the phone ringing or to be engaged with lots of contact. There is no real negative charge to the weekend and you could have a pleasant time so make some plans to reach out and connect; siblings, neighbors or co-workers come to the forefront!
As always, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!
