Moon moves through:
Cancer / Leo / Virgo
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 be diplomatic? Nurture romance? Create? Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste.
Tuesday: 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.
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.
Mercury is our coomunication, travel and thought. When in Sagittarius we become curious, hones, explorative and playful. We grow more curious about what’s unfamiliar.
Samahain / Hallowmas
Light dims, cold moves over, roots reach down to the core where life coheres. We draw inward, grow reflective, slow to the pace of dreaming and remembering. . . .
We mourn all that has passed: stages of life, cultures, creatures, eco-systems—and people dear to us. Remembering, speaking of the dead, honoring them in ritual, is to give them life again. Making room in memory for lost loved ones, hopes, dreams, ideals enriches us, makes us more spacious and alive. As we welcome them into our lives, they find openings in us to bring us blessings and wisdom from the other world.

Leo offers creativity, charisma, warmth, and enthusiasm. Gather with others to celebrate and share bounty.
Venus is relationship, love, sense of beauty and empathy. Libra awakens our sense of beauty, equality, egalitarianism and cooperation. We grow more friendly, relationship oriented, and incensed by injustice.
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.
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.
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.

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.
As the weekend begins, Mercury, the Sun, Venus, and Jupiter are all in stubborn Scorpio, the sign of the private investigator which encourages which encourages introspection on one side, and suspicious investigation on the other. . . .
Verbal Mercury then enters outspoken Sagittarius on Tuesday, which can liberate our mind, relieve some of the mental heaviness and bring hidden material out onto the table for discussion. Mercury in Sagittarius encourages people to say it like it is, and can help us step out of a particularly stubborn month and open minds . . .
. . .today we begin a new astrological cycle as the Sun conjuncts Venus in Scorpio before the weekend begins and seeds a new cycle of emotions, collaboration, and creative process. From the depths of our feelings something begins to gestate. Venus then opposes change-inducing Uranus and suggests that women and the arts, and all things Venusian, can make a difference. As the seed is planted in Scorpio, it will grow roots up from our long-term memories. Be careful of anyone’s old scar tissue, or what gets hatched may be retribution for old pain. . . .
