Apologies for the inconsistant information in last weeks Lunar News. The full moon was in Cancer the 22nd as indicated in the first line of the list above but I indicated Full Moon in Pisces in the following information. Congratulations to those of you who caught my mistake. Hope it didn’t ruin anyones week.
Saturday: The moon is our inward sense of self, emotions and psyche. When in airy Libra there is a sense of beauty, equality, egalitarianism and cooperation. We grow more friendly, relationship oriented, and incensed by injustice.
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.
Monday: Mars is our will to act, initiative and ambition. When in firey Aries we are brave, direct, rebellious and energized. Our inner teenager comes alive; our adult self needs to direct the energy wisely.
Tuesday: 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. Challenging Moon/Venus aspects can bring social awkwardness.
Wednesday: 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.
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. excerpts adapted from Heather Roan Robbins‘ Sun Signs and Sun Transits

Enjoy a quiet thoughtful serious few days before New Year’s because the energy then shifts with a vengeance. Be ready to up the heat as motivating Mars enters Aries, the instigator, on New Year’s Eve. We need to be on fire this year, but whether we feel the hearth fire of the gathering collective, the fire of a combustion engine building speed, or just burn the house down, will be up to us and how we respond to the aspects coming up.
We’ve passed through the darkest time, although the weather used to chill, the sun’s light will grow subtly stronger and longer each day. Let’s bring that solar spark into our hearts and catch fire in the best of ways. We’ll need this spark to build momentum for positive change over the next few years as Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus work through grounded, concrete, territorial, earth signs. Everyone will feel called to make concrete, tangible change, but may disagree widely on what that is; do we build the wall -or save the earth. Like a mountain, earth signs bring energy that is hard to get moving, but like an earthquake or volcano (whether geological or political), once the change begins, the momentum can be unstoppable. Saturn and Pluto are both in determined earthy Capricorn as 2019 begins, Uranus enters grounded Taurus on March 6, Jupiter enters Capricorn next December. The work comes to a head in 2020, begin to steer the momentum this year. (For more details on the year ahead, see my Astro-Overview We’Moon calendar 2019- wemoon.ws)
. . . now, the weekend begins under a friendly Libra Moon, though as that Moon forms tough squares on Saturday, questions of peacefulness versus progress, care versus control may erupt. Serious thoughts way on the psyche about our responsibilities, our responsibilities to our world, to ourselves, to our families. . . .
The Moon enters contemplative Scorpio on Monday; we can meditate on the year behind and on what we choose to invoke in the year ahead, but it might be good to avoid contentious people and difficult terrain on New Year’s Eve as Mars enters Aries.
Another point of contemplation, the stars ask us to look carefully at our emotional boundaries and how we arrange ourselves in relationship to others. We may notice that we are responsible for keeping people at a distance, or are responsible for letting them run roughshod over us. The healthier our boundaries, the closer we can let people to us, and engage our community in a way that still works for us. . .
