Moon moves through:
Gemini / Cancer / Leo
Saturday: Do you need to work out? Take a stand? Get physical? Supportive Moon/Mars aspects give us strength, protectiveness, help us lift rocks, spark passion, establish clear boundaries.
Sunday: Do you need to think? Talk? Travel? Choose a good relationship or aspect between Mercury and the Moon. They loan us speed and consciousness, the ability to think things through, help us bring our minds to any problem and find an answer.
Pluto has to do with death, rebirth and deep, total change. When a planet is in direct motion, planetary energies are more straightforward; in retrograde, planetary energies turn back in on themselves and are more involuted.
Tuesday: The Moon is our inward sense of self, emotions, and psyche. When in Cancer we concerned with family, home, emotional awareness and nourishment. We need time in our shell and with our familiars.
Challenging Moon/Mercury aspects bring a tendency to get lost in the mind and inspire glitches in all things Mercurial; we can get more edgy, irritable, anxious, scattered, diffused, glib. Cure for Moon/Mercury discomfort: Reconnect mind and heart.
Thursday: Challenging Moon/Mars aspects instigate irritability, willfulness, anger, hurry, a competitive or contrary attitude. Cure: exercise, chop wood, take a brisk walk, acknowledge desires or frustrations, and then finesse that argument. Exercise awareness.
Challenging Moon/Venus aspects can bring social awkwardness, hot or cold emotions, longing, questionable aesthetics. Cure: perform a random act of kindness, diplomacy, art therapy.
Friday: Do you need to think? Talk? Travel? Choose a good relationship or aspect between Mercury and the Moon. They loan us speed and consciousness, the ability to think things through, help us bring our minds to any problem and find an answer.
Venus retrograde is all about stalling out on our relationships, love, sense of beauty and empathy.
When in Scorpio we can have sharp focus, perceptive, empowered and mysterious. The mood is smoky, primal, occult, and curious; still waters run deep.

excerpt by Heather Roan Robbins—Visit our Astology Connection page for the complete daily predictions for the week and an overview of the Year for the current SunSign.
We are at a yearly pivot point, the moment between summer and fall, when light and dark, the atmospheric yin and yang, balance. Today Mercury enters Libra, the sign symbolized by the balancing scales. Tomorrow the Sun enters Libra and marks the fall equinox. We can use this balanced energy to bring our own into equilibrium.
Dysfunction, whether in a life or in our political system, mirrors ecological dysfunction; wherever more resources are taken out than restored through the natural flow, the system will fall apart. A sustainable ecology and economy balances output with inflow. We live a sustainable life when we’re renewed by enough joy and satisfaction to refill our wells so we can keep on giving. . . .
So, this week the stars asked us to assess our life, notice places of imbalance and address them. Look at our and work- life food-exercise balances, at issues of political and economic equity. Look at our relationships and assess whether we are giving and receiving equally, whether we’re fed as much as we’re demanded upon. We may not be able to fix imbalances overnight, but this can give us an important trajectory.
