Today's Moon in Pisces, the Mutable last sign of the zodiac, is just one of a growing number of planets in adaptable signs for the week ahead, so why bring it up? Because... tomorrow's Last Quarter Moon in Pisces, squaring off with the Sun in Gemini can bring feelings of uncertainty regarding who to talk to, what to believe and who to trust. Nebulous Neptune has ruler-ship over Pisces and mercurial Mercury has it over Gemini; both are Mutable signs that bridge the gap between holding firm in Fixed signs and taking action in Cardinal signs. Mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces give us the space and time to ask the questions, what is right for me to do and when is it the right time to change my course of action?
Three things are happening tomorrow that will attempt to shake us loose from indecision by bringing new information to our attention in preparation for making the changes we already feel coming. First is the Last Quarter Moon, that time in the monthly lunar cycle when our awareness has been piqued by the recent Full Moon and we now have to tweak our plans as we prepare for the next lunar cycle at the subsequent New Moon. The second is giant Jupiters' ingress into Gemini, expanding communication and inquisitiveness, where it will remain for one year. Expect your interactions with siblings, neighbors and co-workers to increase along with the mental machinations they bring!
The third thing I see about tomorrow's atmosphere of adjustment is that Mercury, ruler of Gemini, is forming challenging aspects to both Uranus (extremes) and Pluto (transformation). As if it wasn't enough to have peace-loving Venus retrograde in Gemini, causing us to question our values and those we interact with, we also have to deal with the outer world by adjusting to changes we have no control over. Welcome to planet Earth!! The best thing to do right now is to take in information, filter it and wait for your correct time to be decisive. That time is not now, but it may be right around the corner. Listen carefully for sounds of change and be prepared to make your move.
Tuesday and Wednesday see the Moon in out-going and active Aries - you can use this energy to get moving on anything you have been waiting to take action on, everyday things, like mowing the lawn or fixing the fence, not things like telling the boss where to go. Especially avoid doing that kind of confrontational thing on Wednesday when both the Sun and Moon interact with Saturn, emphasizing the necessity of constraint and a focus on career or business.
Thursday,Friday and Saturday are the calmest days of the week with a Taurus Moon smoothing the way for outdoor picnics or projects. A bit of pampering may be called for, but remember that Taurus also rules your resources, so don't squander already limited funds. Instead, try building on what you already have or beautifying your environment with the flowers nature has provided around your house. Queen Anne's lace and wild irises make a lovely bouquet this time of year. We have a kind of go-with-the-flow day on Saturday when the Taurus Moon is void-of-course all day making this a good time to chill out or just follow through on things that need finishing.
Until next time, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground~
