ARIES NEW MOON Here to kick off Friday on a positive note is the Aries Moon conjunct Sun at 3:51 AM, forming the New Moon. When celestial bodies are conjunct, it means they are transiting through the same zodiac sign without 0˚ of separation. Generally, the planets will appear side by side in the sky but in this case, the Moon and Sun align almost perfectly, blocking the Sun to give the New Moon its dark, shadowy face. The energies of conjunct celestial bodies unify and strengthen one another. Moon rules our emotions while Sun symbolizes how we view ourselves. Under Mars-ruled Aries, we are likely to experience more confidence and motivation to actually get off our butts and pursue what we want. Whatever your New Moon ritual may be, make sure you utilize this energy during the next two weeks. It's a great time to get a headstart on...Read More

MOON CONJUNCT CHIRON We can help ourselves by helping others today under the 3:03 AM CST Aries Moon conjunct Chiron.

MOON ENTERS CAPRICORN At 9:09 AM CST, the Moon enters focused and determined Capricorn. The zodiac's sea goat encourages us to evaluate our long-term goals and create strategies for reaching them. Under this sign, we may find it easier to focus on one task at a time and get things. Capricorn Moons also reminds us to set limitations for ourselves in order to accomplish more. Although we can't get 100 things done in a day, we are certainly capable of accomplishing at least one. Carry, wear or surround yourself with minerals from the quartz family, such as agate, to clarify, strengthen and stabilize during this transit. MOON SEXTILE VENUS The Capricorn Moon forms a sextile with Venus in Pisces at 11:08 AM, beginning its run of aspects on a positive note.

MOON SESQUIQUADRATE URANUS Tuesday is kicked off with a sesquiquadrate between the Sagittarius waning gibbous Moon and Uranus in Taurus at 6:27 AM CST. Also known as a sesquisquare, the trioctile occurs when celestial bodies are 135˚ apart. Generally, under this minor astrological aspect old, unhealthy patterns reappear and we are confronted by problems we'd rather ignore Although often uncomfortable to approach, continuing to ignore these problems is the biggest trap. Under the Sagittarian influence, the emotion-ruling Moon encourages us to break free from routines and get social. Uranus, the planet of surprises, is always up for spontaneity but don't be shocked if you run into someone you'd rather not see at this time. Face the situation head on but don't do anything you'll regret. MOON SQUARE MERCURY At 7:03 AM, the Sagittarius Moon squares Mercury Retrograde in Pisces.

SUN SEXTILE PLUTO Prideful Sun in Pisces forms a sextile with Pluto in Capricorn at 9:25 AM CST. Use this time to take action towards making your dreams a reality, as the Sun and Pluto's energies harmonize to grant us incredible personal power. When a sextile occurs, celestial bodies separated by two zodiac signs form a 60˚ angle with one another. This is a positive aspect where energies are capable of working together. With the effects of the success-driven sea goat Capricorn on underworld-ruling Pluto, we are most likely inclined to use our heightened charisma for business at this time. others will be easily influenced by us. People who are more of the Machiavellian "ends justifies the means" type will find themsselves manipulating others to get what they want. Stay alert for deception.

MOON SEXTILE MERCURY At 4:32 AM CST, the Taurus Moon sextiles Mercury Retrograde in Pisces. A sextile happens when celestial bodies form a 60˚ angle with one another, separated by two zodiac signs in transit. Their energies work together to make things easier for us, allowing us to bring ideas to life and continue manifesting the reality of our dreams. The Moon governs our emotions, seeking comfort and security under the influence of the stable zodiac bull, Taurus. Mercury, on the other hand, rules knowledge and communication but is currently retrograde (appearing to move backwards in the sky) under the intuitive empath Pisces. For Mercury, this transit often reveals disagreements between the heart and mind but during this harmonious sextile with the Taurus Moon, they can find common ground. Thanks to Mercury's influence, we are more articulate than usual, making it the perfect time to start a conversation in business...Read More

SUN SEXTILE SATURN All the tools we need to make today as productive as possible are at our disposal under the Pisces Sun sextile Saturn in rulership Capricorn at 1:11 AM CST. A sextile occurs when celestial bodies are 60˚ apart. It's a positive aspect when potentials have a higher probability of becoming reality. When a planet is in its rulership, it is currently transiting through the zodiac sign it governs. These planets and signs share properties. In this case, responsible, success-driven Saturn rules Capricorn, the disciplined, traditional sea goat. Both Saturn and Capricorn focus on long-term. Ego-driver Sun is in dreamy Pisces, reconnecting us with our dreams and passions so we may once again feel whole. Combined with the energies of Saturn in Capricorn, we are able to draw up a plan and take steps moving us closer to accomplishing what it is we wish to do. MOON SQUARE...Read More

MOON SEXTILE VENUS Our only aspect today is a wonderful one occurring at 6:30 AM CST when the Aries Moon sextiles Venus in Aquarius. A sextile occurs when celestial bodies form a 60˚ angle, their energies cooperating to unleash potential. Firey Aries' influence over the Moon, ruler of our emotions, is working to reignite our passions – whatever it is that makes our heart sing. Quite some time has passed since that flame burned brightly but the zodiac ram's trailblazing spirit removes any fear or doubt that's been blocking our path. Don't let life pass you by! Jump on whatever it is that you've wanted to devote time to for so long. Just don't follow impulses tempting you to wander away from productive activities. And if you're not sure what to do with this energy, work out! Venus is transiting through humanitarian Aquarius, allowing us to accept criticism at this...Read More

MERCURY Rx SEMISQUARE MARS Our minds are foggy during the 12:19 PM Pisces Mercury Retrograde semisquare Mars in Taurus, largely because the planet of knowledge and communication (Mercury) doesn't understand the emotional energies of the zodiac fish. A semisquare, when celestial bodies form a 45˚ angle, is like a weaker version of the major astrological aspect occurring at a 90˚ angle, the square. As I previously mentioned, Mercury rules the mind, enjoying logic and reasoning. Empathetic Pisces, however, is much more interested in following intuition wherever it leads. It's the age-old disconnect between heart and mind played out during this Mercury Retrograde. Go-getter Mars, the planet of action, is under the influence of sensible, stable Taurus, the zodiac's bull associated with finances. Hoping to make a big purchase soon? You may find it hard to budget or come up with the money at this time. It may wipe out your...Read More
