“Makin’ love is good for ya. So take care of your body and make a little love today.”
Friday night the Moon in Leo squares Taurus Mars and opposes the midpoint of the Pluto-Uranus Square. Venus aspects the Pluto-Uranus square as well, and Mercury in its own sign is involved in a quincunx with Saturn. The best aspect here is the weekend-long Venus-Uranus sextile. Everything else is a little dicey. Some of it is outright irritating and the rest could go either way. So grab onto that Venus-Uranus energy and innovate what you want out of it. Look for ways to distance yourself from what goes wrong, or more appropriately, what doesn’t go perfectly. Don’t expect things to go smoothly and you can be elated when they don’t suck.

“In this part of the story I am the one who dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you, because I love you, Love, in fire and in blood.”
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
Thursday morning the Moon in Leo moves into sextile with Gemini Venus for the beginnings of a brushfire of desire. It’s the first spark of a whipped up day. Today the Moon brushes up against everything, and with the Moon in fire, that’s dramatic.

“It is a great mistake for men to give up paying compliments, for when they give up saying what is charming, they give up thinking what is charming.”
― Oscar Wilde
Wednesday morning the Cancer Moon starts out in sextile to the Taurus Sun. The Moon-ruled mood and the Venus-ruled sense of purpose compliment each other in an aspect of opportunity. Cancer and Taurus are the signs of comfort and pleasure, so this bodes well for a lovely start.

“My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.”
― Coco Chanel
Tuesday morning the Moon in mid-Cancer opposes Pluto and squares Uranus. The mood can be explosive and controlly (not a word). The Moon applies into a sextile with Taurus Mars, however, and the key to success is in controlling yourself. Oh, I know, like you’ve never heard that one before. But I think there’s a quote about keeping your head while all others lose theirs… this is, if you can control your mood, your body will follow, and others will follow. Stay serene, ragey grasshopper. The payoff is in maintaining a pleasant atmosphere.

“And when they do the double dutch that’s them dancing…”
Monday morning the Moon moves into its own sign, Cancer. Cancer is the sign associated with home and the the mother, comfort, roots, family. The moon applies into a grand trine in water, trining Neptune also in its own sign, Pisces, and Saturn in Scorpio. This allows a little moon magic, the ability to shape the mood and your reality. That is the case if you’re able to go with the flow. Get zen on it.

“It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me, and I’m feeling good.”
Friday night the Moon moves into Gemini, joining Venus in the snappy, Mercurial sign, good for socializing. The pace has been a little slower with so many Taurean planets lately. While we still have most of those in place, the mood picks up and is itching for a bit of a tweak into zip mode. It’s time for new information, a change of pace. With Neptune in square and trining Saturn, don’t fog out in bliss and forget your limits. If you’re over 40: no keg stands. You could break a hip.

“To love others you must first love yourself.”
— Leo Buscaglia (Love)
The Moon in Taurus passes over Mars and Mercury on its way to conjunct the Sun for Thursday’s new moon eclipse on the south node. Venus spends the morning at the last degree of Taurus then moves into Gemini after the Moon passes over Mars. The renewed interest in new information and different ways of thinking and expressing oneself adds a little spice to the new moon, fresh start flavor.

“Love is not a thing, it is not lost when given. You can offer your love completely to hundreds of people and still retain the same love you had originally.”
— Leo Buscaglia
Wednesday morning the Moon moves into Taurus, joining Mars, Mercury, Pallas Athena, and Venus in the sign, setting the stage for the big, new moon eclipse on Thursday. Venus will leave Taurus for Mercury-ruled Gemini before the actual event though (she’s just like that)(bitch)(just kidding, don’t hurt me). This is a big one and, I think, a good one.

“Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.”
― M. Scott Peck
Tuesday morning the Moon in Aries sextiles Jupiter in Gemini. This is an emotional energy boost right out of the blocks. If you get up early and let this propel you into your day, the Taurus Mars conjunct Mercury has the staying power to capitalize on that push. Overcome intertia, press onward.

“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”
Monday morning the Moon in Aries applies into conjunction with Uranus accentuating the Pluto square. The mood picks up the tension of the long term, deep zing. This can have the effect of a heightened anxiety level, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It can also put you “on point” and present, ready to pick up on subtle cues, because you can feel them.
