Moon moves through:
Pisces / aries / Taurus
Saturday: 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.
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.
Tuesday: When the sun is in Scorpio we experience sharp focus, perceptive, may become empowered and mysterious. The mood is smoky, primal, occult, and curious; still waters run deep.
Wednesday: With he moon in Taurus we are sensual, rooted, nurturing, material manifestation. We slow down, get earthy, awaken our senses, begin to build form, roots, and stubborn strength.
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: 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.

This week, while the mood is generally sane and serious, if easily hot under the collar, a few tricky Uranus aspects which can throw us a wildcard. Next Wednesday we have a full Moon in earthy Taurus conjunct with change maker Uranus, which can wake us up with surprise, shock, or inspiration. . . . the stars give us an opportunity to rest and renew this weekend.
The tough transits of this fall have certainly stirred the political pot and left many people drained, but this weekend the we get to spend some time with intuitive, dreamlike Neptune and refill the wells. . . . let the dream world heal us. . . . let’s keep our agenda light, our expectations for busyness low, and make a safe place four our sensitivities. We can feel so permeable under this lineup so it will help to put ourselves in environments that feed us. We need room to soak up health and let our minds unwind.
Rest well over the weekend because it’s going to be a busy week ahead. The Moon enters dynamic Aries on Monday and asks us to get down to brass tacks. Mercury also make some intense, sane, hard-working and potentially contentious aspects and pushes us to deal with conundrums. On Tuesday the Sun joins Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter in focused Scorpio. We develop attitude, defend quickly, will have no patience with trivia and will tend to play our cards close to the chest. As we head into the last laps before the midterm elections, look for focused action, ruthless comments, last-minute Machiavellian twists, and a long memory on the part of the voters. . . .
