The week begins on an emotionally charged note. Remember that we have just entered the season of Libra – the four week transit of the Sun through this balanced air sign. Libra is asking for peace and justice. On Monday, however, the Full Moon in Aries is challenging this notion in all ways – and on all fronts. People are aggressive, angry and quarrelsome. The light of the Full Moon is illuminating people’s true colors. Hidden anger rises to the surface and meets directly against the light of the Sun that is radiating peace. On an individual level, we see the polarity between the needs of the self and the needs of relationship. “I am” verses “we are”. Here is where the tension lies, and here is where compromise needs to be made.
Tuesday’s energy is equally feisty thanks to the added fact that Tuesday is the day of Mars, the planet ruling war and weapons. People are more aggressive than usual on the road and in the workplace. There is a quarrelsome attitude to the day. Do your best to bring peace and balance to your own body, soul, home and workplace. Snatam Kaur’s album, “Ras” can bring just the kind of soothing, calming energy that is needed at this time. Tracks like “Chattr Chakkr Vartee” help to make you fearless. “Earth Prayer” helps to keep you grounded and stable through potentially turbulent times.
Wednesday is likely to be challenging. The Moon is void-of-course from early morning through midnight. All day we feel off. Our intuition has taken the day off and we have lost our sense of direction. This is not a good day to make any big plans or decisions. Stick only to routine tasks. Connections with others are difficult. Everyone is off. It may feel like you are dancing with a partner who doesn’t know the steps. You don’t know them either. Feeling like you are stepping on each other’s toes? Yes – that is the energy we are working with. This is a good day to call in sick to work.
Our wits return on Thursday with the Taurus Moon holding court and helping to ground the scattered, confused energy from the day before. Taurus is ruled by Venus, as is LIbra, suggesting that there is a strong Venusian energy in the air. Beauty is favored. Get a haircut, buy some new clothes, add some decorative touches to your house. This is a day to slow down, relax, and enjoy the pleasures of life. Exchange massages with someone you love. Indulge in the pleasures of the five senses. Enjoy good meals throughout the day. Chew your food slowly and appreciate every bite.
Fiday’s energy is good for getting things done. Follow through to the finish line. There is a feeling of stubborn determination in the air that helps you complete whatever tasks needs finishing. Be persistent. You will finish. Keep in mind, however, that at 6:30pm EST (3:30pm PST), all bets are off. At this time, the Moon goes void-of-course, and we have lost our sense of direction and intuition for the remainder of the day. Take the night off and go out to the movies with someone you love.
Saturday’s energy is light and social, asking us to gather with friends and have a good time. Be flexible. Return phone calls. Return emails. Reach out to people you haven’t spoken with in a while. Old friends and siblings will be especially happy to hear from you today.
Don’t get too caught up in the gossip on Sunday. There may be a tendency to put so much focus on other people’s problems and issues that you completely ignore your own situation that needs attention. Rise to the occasion and speak openly and directly to the people that are involved. Be honest, fair and most importantly, keep a smile on your face. Avoid being accusatory or confrontational. Also take note that at 11:38am EST (8:38am PST), the Moon goes void-of-course, suggesting that we have lost our sense of balance for the remainder of the day. Stick to routine tasks and chores for the afternoon and evening. Even better, just relax and do nothing at all.
