After Sunday’s full moon in Leo, the Moon spends the week across the zodiac from the main emphasis of the other players, winding up in Libra, sextile Jupiter. The Moon apart from the rest sheds light on the bigger picture in ways we can capitalize on.
In basic astrology, this would be called a bucket formation, with the Moon a quick moving handle. This puts all the weight on the Moon. We experience a heart-centered emotional understanding of all emerging energies, both the short and long term. It has an effect on us personally, but we are experiencing the collective energy through our own emotional center.
Consider looking at where your own Moon hits the collective chart this week. Where does it fit into the sky? Where does the transiting Moon hit your chart this week; that’s where you’ll intersect with the collective point of focus. Feel how that weight distributes for YOU. What does it highlight for YOU?
Monday morning, the Moon holds the full moon energy, still in early Leo. Mars perfects its square to Saturn. Over the course of the day, the Moon moves into a grand trine with Mars and the waxing conjunction of Venus and Jupiter. In 1932, Ted Koehler wrote: “I’ve got the world on a string, sitting on a rainbow; got that string around my finger. What a world, what a life; I’m in love!” Whatever else is stirring in the world, in your life, somewhere you have this song. It’s deep in your bucket. Don’t drop it. Swing it.
Tuesday the Venus-Jupiter conjunction perfects. Venus-Jupiter energy is BIG LOVE, wanting all the things… all the love, all the money. We have far reaching desires. Isn’t that wonderful? The more we want, the more we can stretch to get it.
Mars has been squaring Saturn as it also trined Jupiter. We experienced a drive to go, but the brakes were on. Now the brakes are letting up and we accelerate into the GO with Jupiter. Go get what you want! The trine is exact on Friday morning, so get up some momentum as the brakes release.
The Tuesday Leo Moon trines Uranus and lights up a yod with the Mercury-Chiron sextile. The general mood shines a light on the puzzle we’re sorting, the knot we’re unraveling. Expect some interesting pieces to fall into place and take advantage of the opportunities to communicate and heighten your learning and understanding. There’s some good news here, even if it’s coming from your own brain. The mood is electric and makes those communications ZING.
Tuesday night, the Moon moves to Virgo and into earthy Mercury rulership. Let those thoughts sink in deep.
Wednesday, the Virgo Moon quincunxes the Sun, and Mercury moves to Aquarius. The senses start to click way ahead, drawing us into a higher level of reaction to life’s events. The meaning soaked in. Now we can “do the math”.
The Moon moves into trine with Saturn and opposition to Neptune. It goes on to square Jupiter and Venus. When perspective shifts, so does our relationship to reality. Don’t worry too much about how that’s going to affect the long term success of getting what you want. Rely on the universe having your back for that bit. Lean into your understanding of the new territory.
Early Thursday, the Moon perfects its square to Venus and goes on to trine Pluto. We move naturally from petulant desire to fearlessness. Deep satisfaction is possible regardless of circumstances when you feel the depth of power in stability over time. Feel the larger transformation occurring.
The Moon moves into opposition to Chiron with Chiron on the midpoint of a Uranus-Vesta sextile: more indication of our movement toward solving our tightened knots and permanent puzzles. Look for the illumination that brings passion to the future, something we can learn to lead us there.
Thursday night, the Moon moves to Libra and a trine to Mercury. Friday morning the Moon trines the Sun. Both are deep in the bucket. Consider your current path. Mars perfects its trine to Jupiter. Are you already on the path? Are you moving?
Friday the Libra Moon squares Saturn and moves into opposition to Mars. The Moon also sextiles Jupiter as Jupiter trines Mars. Our relationships have both brakes and jet engines. Feel where to steer into action and lay on the gas pedal. Feel where to back off and redirect energy into something that feels right. It doesn’t matter what your investment is, if you can’t move forward – you can’t move forward. Not now. Look for where you CAN move forward.
The Moon in sextile to Jupiter and Venus brings opportunity to feel optimistic about our possibilities. Why push against what isn’t giving, when you can flow your love somewhere else that may? Flow that love! Air (the Libra Moon) feeds fire (Jupiter and Venus in Sadge and Mars in Aries). Feed the fire that feeds you. Make sure there’s give and take if you want that healthy, upward movement.
