As the energy from the Full Moon begins to slowly wind down we deal with void of course Moon energy for about half of Friday. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are all four star days, giving humanity a shot at successfully closing deals and launching new projects--with one proviso. Friday is also the day we enter the next Mercury retrograde shadow. While the retrograde begins 2 August 2011, the shadow begins 15 July and runs through 10 September. A long time, yes I know. What does it mean to you? Try to avoid major changes such as changing jobs, moving or marrying in these periods. I would say you can do what you need to now, just know that the closer it comes to 2 August 2011 the fewer major changes you'll want to make. Major changes initiated when Mercury is retrograde often lead to unsatisfactory circumstances and a need to redo your project. Just sayin'...
The Moon shifts into Aquarius at 1:30 PM, so all air signs get a thumbs up for the next couple of days. Shift your interest to your deepest desires and dreams, your friends and group associations and you'll align nicely with the overall vibe. Neon and fluorescent colors, hot pink, turquoise, and silver are the colors that rule for outfits and accessories. Dab on a little musk, patchouli or jasmine essential oils and wear black amber, amethyst, turquoise or bloodstone crystals to keep your energy nicely balanced.
Friday 15 July 2011 is the eve of carmageddon day in Los Angeles. The 405 is shut down for the weekend as the freeway receives a major overhaul. Just the sort of wild, eccentric thing that Aquarius is known for. There is only one exact aspect--not surprisingly to Aquarius' ruler; the Moon sextiles Uranus at 9:56 PM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT). If you're wanting to be a little wild and crazy Friday, go ahead and indulge.
Saturday 16 July 2011 starts off with a red light from the Universe for over doing anything; a Moon/Jupiter square at 2:54 AM suggests conservative spending and actions for the time being. A trine between the Moon and Saturn at 10:41 AM echoes the earlier call for conservative, disciplined action, but by 11:56 PM the Moon trines Mars and you'll be playing all out. With the Moon transiting wild and wooly Aquarius this may be a no-holds barred Saturday night. Go for it!
Sunday 17 July 2011 suggests caution in your communications when the Moon opposes Mercury at 5:23 AM. An early morning chat is probably not a good idea. Especially since the Moon is void of course after that last aspect. This is a good day to just kick it with friends, nothing too stressful. The Moon enters Pisces at 10:13 PM and we switch our focus to mystical concerns, movies, music, dance, art or photography. Take in a great concert or movie since the night closes out with a fabulous trine between the Moon and Neptune--ruler of Pisces (also great for meditation). By now you probably know how I love a Pisces Moon, so why not enjoy a leisurely bubble bath and swim into a new work week tomorrow? Till next time...
