The Moon is waxing, the energy is growing, and Mercury is direct. It’s full steam ahead as the week gets underway. As the Moon grows, we are asked to grow the projects and plans that we began under the influence of the New Moon last week. Tackle challenging yoga kriyas that engage the navel and build your physical strength. The power of the growing lunar force is with us.
On Monday, the Capricorn Moon helps us get into gear and get things done. It encourages us to get to work and stay focused. We are more conscious of time. Stay on task. You will accomplish quite a bit, thanks to the influence of Saturn, the great teacher. At 4:30pm EST (1:30pm PST), however, the Moon goes void-of-course. For the next couple hours, we feel as if we have lost our sense of direction. Our intuition is on hiatus. Use this time for routine tasks. Make no major decisions. Don’t hold any big meetings at work.
On Tuesday, the name of the game is electric. There is a revolutionary feeling in the air. We want things to happen quick, and we want to break the mold. This is the time to be bold. Let your quirky side come out. Be original. Think outside of the box. Let your wild side be known, and you will find that you have friends in this camp! Join with others of like minds and set a goal. Together, you can accomplish quite a lot.
Wednesday is a good day to do things for the good of the group. Think beyond time and space. Merge with the one. This is a time to elevate and do good. Think of the bigger picture. Remember that happiness is our birthright – everyone’s birthright. Let your actions and reactions uplift and create happiness. If you need some inspiration in this department, consider Sirgun’s album, “Reclaim your Happiness: Meditations for Transformation.” Tracks like the meditation to “Remove Negativity” (Kaal Akaal) are just what the doctor has ordered at this time.
Notice the energy shift on Thursday with the Moon in watery, mutable Pisces presiding. This is a time when we are more sensitive, and more easily hurt. It is a time when we truly feel connected with the all. It is a time to go within and merge. Become the ocean. Connect with the water element and express yourself through song, music and dance. Let your creative juices flow. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, the most “out there”. So, let yourself be “out there” and enjoy some time in the clouds.
Continue to paint, dream, write and create on Friday. Also remember that everyone is extra sensitive and more easily hurt. Compassion is the name of the game. Tonight, be careful that you don’t overindulge in food and drink. The Piscean urge to escape can sometimes lead toward behavior that you may end up regretting the next morning.
Tension arises between the masculine and feminine polarities on Saturday, thanks to the challenging angle formed between the Sun and the Moon. During this time, the two luminaries are at cross-purposes with each other, creating stress between the sexes down here on Earth. Give each other a little more breadth on a day like today. Furthermore, things are complicated by the fact that the Moon is void-of-course for most of the day. Our intuition is off and our sense of direction is out to lunch. We are likely to say things that confuse others and only cause more entanglements and disruption. Don’t make any major plans or agreements. Stick only to routine tasks. By 7:44pm EST (4:44pm PST), we are back on track and things are on the upswing.
Sunday is a good day to exercise. The Aries Moon is giving us more pep than usual. Anger could arise to the surface if we are not careful. That is why channeling this energy into sports or challenging yoga kriyas is a good idea. Engage the physical body. It’s time to move. Martial arts are favored during this time when the God of War is being highlighted. Use this day to get that pent up energy out!
