The big news this week is the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse exact on Friday evening. From the start of the week we will feel the crescendo of emotional energy building. People are more sensitive, and more emotionally charged as the week progresses. The Moon stays up later and later each night and so do we. By the time the weekend rolls around, our activity will be nocturnal in nature. Pay attention to your dreams – especially toward the end of the week – as the Moon reaches her fullest point. There are messages coming to you from your unconscious. They are trying to speak to your conscious mind. Listen to the information coming through.
Monday is a good day to take off from work. Everything seems off-kilter. No one has a clear sense of direction. We may feel as if we are still in the holiday daze. Our intuition is off. This is not a day to hold any strategy meetings or make any big plans. Instead, stick to routine tasks. This is because the Moon is void-of-course from 7:08am – 9:11pm EST (4:08am – 6:11pm PST). During this time, we feel off. Interactions with others are off as well. Take everything with a grain of salt.
On Tuesday, people’s minds are buzzing. Communication is an important theme. The Moon is in mental Mercury, on the day that is dedicated to Mars. Words may be sharp and aggressive. People want to get their points across. This is a good day to follow up on emails, voicemails, and other correspondence that require your response.
Don’t get caught up in the gossip train on Wednesday. You might get so concerned with what other people are up to that you fail to take care of the pressing issues that are on your own work table. This is a day to support yourself and the people around you by staying close to the truth. Don’t get caught up in heresay or judgment calls. At 5:16pm EST (2:16pm PST), the Moon goes void-of-course. For the remainder of the day, our intuition is off. This is not a good time to make any major decisions. Instead just stick to routine tasks.
Everyone is feeling extra sensitive on Thursday. This is a day to stick close to home and meditate. Go within, quiet your mind and tune into the powerful emotions that are coming up at this time. If you are looking for inspiration to sink into this kind of space, consider the album, “Journey into Stillness” by Dr. Ramdesh Kaur. With six beautiful guided meditations – everything from connecting with the angels to cultivating your own feeling of self-love – this album is a must-have for those who are looking for a simple, nurturing and comforting way to slow down and relax. With musical contributions from Mirabai Ceiba, Snatam Kaur, Jai Jagdeesh and Ram Dass, this album does not disappoint!
The Full Moon is exact on Friday evening. This month it is so exact, in fact, that it forms an exact Lunar Eclipse in the sky. With the Moon in Cancer opposite the Sun in Capricorn, the focus now is on the balance between home and career. What are your aspirations with regard to work-related goals and your place in the world? What would you like to see manifested in your domestic and family life? Are these two sets of goals compatible? Are you working to achieve them simultaneously? Maybe you are so focused on one side of the equation that you are completely neglecting the other. This Lunar Eclipse offers opportunity to see the truth in your career path and your family life. Difficult situations cropping up at this time are helping to point you toward areas of your life that need refinement and transformation. Don’t be afraid to make a major turn in the road at this time.
The energy lightens up this weekend. Saturday night is a good time to take a loved one out on a special date. The mood is social, festive and romantic. Both Saturday and Sunday call for you to be a kid again and join in lighthearted and uplifting conversation. Go to the theater, dance, and have fun.
