Moon moves through:
Sagittarius / Capricorn / Aquarius
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.
Monday: 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.
Do you need to be diplomatic? Nurture romance? Create? Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste.
Wednesday: 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.
Tuesday: 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.
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.

. . . Recent astrological transits have stirred the coals for many people and clarified what is the next challenge. . . . Venus, now uncomfortably in Scorpio, squared litigious Mars, turned retrograde and squared Mars again. She stays retrograde for another month, so these portals from the past aren’t going away anytime soon.
. . . we know what we’re up against. We can bond with one another easily if we’re fighting the same challenge, but otherwise may not find it easy to make new friends at the moment as the plot thickens.
. . . emotional ghosts stay in the room through the end of October as Venus retrogrades in Scorpio, and continue to sit with us through the middle of November. . . No matter what we’re wrestling with, let’s not get snagged by the illusion that we are stuck in the past. Instead, let’s ask what can we learn from the past, and what do we need to do differently now.
. . . Mercury is now in intense Scorpio, a place where it has a long memory, doesn’t forgive or forget easily, and has the focus to do what needs to be done. . . . wild winds and crazy thinking, but a few powerful new ideas for future change. . . . aspects can support the voice of women, our emotions, and our creative Muse. Since Venus is not a happy camper at the moment, the voice may be quite strident.
. . . Sagittarius Moon encourages us to get away from our computers and get out into the sunshine, dive into the heart of autumn and renew our spirits and our health. Find a new level of honesty under this outspoken moon, find someplace to step out of polarized opinions and into a more whole way of living.
