This week begins with reflection upon how we have raised standards in our lives and how we have lived up to those standards. The Virgo Full Moon on Tuesday wants us to rein in any distractions by mastering the art of organization and refinement, while Saturn’s ingress into Pisces the same day spotlights that need to create order and structure from the chaos that surrounds us. If we can get all our ducks in a row, the supercharged weekend of relational dynamics will be much easier to contend with. May we all hold on to our hats!

An array of synchronicity and intuitive understanding opens up today about our ideal path ahead. This allows time to be on our side if we listen and capably manage the work that is in front of us. It is a good day to allow the unknowns to sort themselves out organically and not push the river. We just have to manage our time the best we can and not get distracted by rabbit holes.
Later in the evening, Moon finishes its pass through Leo by opposing Saturn’s final days in Aquarius. This active opposition stimulates reflection upon the progressive ideals and standards we have set in place over the past two years. How have we rebuilt the foundations upon which we function into more efficient, economical, and enlightening footings on which to stand?

As we wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary may not come to us, but it could feel that way if we greet the day with grace. Sun’s sextile to Uranus opens up our intellectual intuition and stimulates an immense influence of potential. Potentials ranging from public recognition to self-clarity to financial shifts. We must remember that any dissolution that unfolds in our lives often occurs to better equip ourselves for what lies ahead.
Moon’s fresh entry into Virgo is met with simultaneous aspects to its own Nodes and Mercury. We are drawn to harnessing our highest capacity for functionality and management, making any organizational, methodical, or refining tasks seem like a breeze, thus inspiring breakthroughs in efficiency and utility. It is an amazing day to gather up all the chaos in our lives and compartmentalize it so we can manage our time and space with maximum control and effectiveness. Let’s get our ducks in a row!

The magical arrangement of Moon and Mercury in relation to Moon’s Nodes yesterday hopefully garnered inspiration to tidy up the little shop of horrors in our lives. Chaos meets its match today as we soak up Moon’s Virgoan guidance. The earthly Moon-Uranus trine stabilizes the otherwise chaotic impact of Sun and Saturn’s Piscean swelling seas. Grounding ourselves through bodywork, office work, continued organizational accomplishments, and effective clarity of purpose will offset whatever tipping points Saturn’s ingress into Pisces unveils.
Full Moons in Virgo always bring fresh reminders that in order to sustain a functional life, we must learn how to prune our own tree of life. If we continue to fixate on emotional attachments and aggrandize the unnecessaries in our lives, we cannot properly arborize our tree. What is working best for us? What is not? These are the questions that just slipped under our door.
Saturn finally makes its way into Pisces for the first time since 1994. What was happening in our life in 1993 and 1994? Where did those roads lead us? How can we learn from the choices we made back then to better navigate the ever-optional choices ahead? Would you have gone left instead of right? Would you have turned around and gone back to a different dirt road? The spirit of this transit asks that we remain wary of any disfunction and chaos in the methods we choose to live by. It asks that we harness faith and compassion toward ourselves and others so that we can all make great strides together through life.
It would be a good idea to put a dream journal beside our bed tonight to write down the vivid dreams that could likely present themselves in our sleep tonight.

After this morning’s Moon-Pluto trine, Moon ingresses Libra. The trine stimulates recognition of all that needs to be undone and sent off into the abysmal vacuum of existence. The final reckoning of what isn’t working needs to be deciphered, acknowledged, and kicked out the door. We just don’t need what isn’t working or useful anymore. Let it go!
As Moon saunters merrily into Libra, we notice how helpful others can be in our lives. We find the hard work involved in trying to manage our own lives doesn’t need to be so difficult if we are willing to share in the process. Lending a hand to help out a friend, holding the door for strangers at the store, and spending time imagining life in the shoes of others will bring harmony and kindness into our day. Be fair, helpful, polite, and compassionate.

Moon in Libra opposite Jupiter and Chiron in Aries
Amplifying the need for recognizing duality through the lens of relationships is at the forefront of our day. We cannot expect others to understand us completely, and we in turn cannot understand others completely. This is an inevitable facet of life that must be considered if we want any relationship we are in to thrive and function in a healthy and vibrant manner.
We must learn to understand how vital empathy is to relate to others. No one is without remorse, and forgiveness, even not knowing what there is to forgive, brings genuine solace between the hearts of two people. Living like we know how hard life is for everyone on some level rewards us with an empathy the whole world could use more of.

Moon’s middle-of-the-night opposition to Venus followed by Moon’s trine to Mars early in the morning brings a dynamic and active relational vibration to the day. The conversations, circumstances, and emotions that crop up today are sure to be rapt with gusto, verve, and dare I say, opinionated pizzaz. Keeping things kosher and kind at any cost will help whatever progress can be made through these lively exchanges as they unfold peacefully and beneficially.
As Moon free-dives into the deep dark waters of Scorpio later in the evening, it trines Saturn acquainting itself with the vast oceanic seascape of Pisces. These timekeepers bring a very mystical and inquisitive influence into our Friday evening. Time can seem to elude us as the night ebbs and flows into morning. It is a wonderful evening to dive into any variety of esoteric matters with like-minded friends.

There is no shortage of Zing today. And that capital ‘Z’ was not a mistake. Outré dynamo! Sextiles bring conducive headway, and these planets and placements are sure to stir up some excitement in our lives. Venus and Mars can conjure sparks of justifications for independence within our relationships, while Mercury and Uranus can further amplify, through communication, how free we truly wish to be in life. These sextiles encompass all four elements, all the inner planets, and the trailblazer of rebellion and freedom: Uranus!
This could indeed be a day of reckoning breakthroughs and eventual clarity about where we stand as individuals within the constructs of relationships. Is a family member, friend, or partner knowingly or unknowingly holding us back in any way? How can we diplomatically approach them about our passionate flair for freedom from the confines of expectations and dependence? How can we achieve the freedom we desire without threatening the loving bond we share with them? May all our relations speak from the heart.
A Zinger of a week, indeed! May we utilize every muscle in our bodies and brains and hearts to organize, ground, and empathize. The transitions are stirring across the great plane that is our solar system, and the best we can do is hang on and ride it all out through thick and thin. We are all equipped to make it through, as long as we trust that we are.
