- Moon moves through:
Scorpio / Sagittarius / Scorpio
Saturday: 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.
Sunday: 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. The moon is our inward sense of self, emotion and psyche. When in watery Scorpio we experience sharp focus, and are more perceptive, empowered and mysterious. The mood is smoky, primal, occult, and curious; still waters run deep
Tuesday and Wednesday: 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 work out? Take a stand? Get physical? Supportive Moon/Mars aspects give us strength, protectiveness, help us lift rocks, spark passion, establish clear boundaries.
Thursday: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.excerptsadapted from Heather Roan Robbins’ Sun Signs and Sun Transits

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.A competitive, muscular energy can help us achieve our personal best this week, or just get into a barroom (or Internet) brawl, it’s always up to us how we use the energy. Mars now forms an energizing trine with expansive Jupiter and encourages us to shoot off the mouth or blow up a situation before we really investigated the consequence. Though Venus in flexible Sagittarius can help us take it all with a grain of salt. Together they add fire to all our emotions this week, our love, hate, impatience, and curiosity. Mars still in its own feisty, brash, direct sign of Aries, where it’s known to encourage the ready, fire, aim mentality, and the trine to expansive enlarging Jupiter magnifies its machismo. Venus in Sagittarius at the moment and can add both extra nervy energies, a desire for mobility, honesty, and a twinkle in the eye which can make it hard for us to sit at our desk all day, but can help us not take our situation quite so seriously. Though we certainly won’t put up with any nonsense. Idealism coordinates well with practicality as Saturn sextiles Neptune, an aspect felt all week and one which could potentially inspire a shift in recent political logjams. (Neptune melts, and Saturn describes boundaries, walls.) But this sextile is a soft and subtle aspect, we have to engage it to choose to put our ideals into form. No one can force us to do so. . . .
