The week starts under a Capricorn moon, bringing a serious note to the lively, outgoing Leo rays that have begun flowing so freely. It’s not so much that these energies disagree with one another as it is that they are distinctly different and share little in common. With conjunctions to sober Saturn and reforming Pluto, this moon may illuminate matters needing careful consideration. When problem solving, Tuesday’s Sun Venus conjunction can show us what matters most. Next up, the moon moves into Aquarius where it will be full on Thursday, the day that also sees Mercury finally move past the shadow point of this summer’s emotionally intensive retrograde. Right on the heels of the full fixed-sign moon, Uranus in fixed Taurus is set to square Mercury in fixed Leo on Friday. These aspects will likely expose hard lines and hard-liners. But under a moon in the compassionate realms of gentle Pisces, our decisions, words and deeds can be infused with the intention of healing the situations we encounter. By the weekend, provocative Mars leaves fiery Leo for studious Virgo where it will be in residence through October 4th. Best look: hands, hearts and minds holding fast to sacred texts and the wisdom of their teachings.
