The Goddess

Opposite God


What is the Moon’s Message to You?

That is the Will and Purpose of This Column

Published Every Monday, which means Moon Day

This week, you experience extraordinary drama, with your soul surging ahead to its future. However, as the week progresses, you will be required to analyze your gallant, forward motion as the heavens request a gathering of only your best movements, ultimately with an eye towards weighing what is absolutely necessary. 

Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: Cat got your tongue? Not this week, as your emotions spew out of your mouth in the form of fiery words. You do best when you take ownership of your speech, staying grounded and diplomatic when relating to others. 

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: You’re torn between staying where you are or surging ahead, especially as it relates to involving others. Why not split the difference and float along at a leisurely pace?

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: Your impressive communicative abilities take on a warmer tone this week, if you are open to what your emotions are asking of you. By week’s end you do less of the talking and more of the receiving, a welcome change for you if you’re open to the break.

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: Usually one to experience emotions inwardly, your feelings are your greatest asset this week. Be judicious about the feelings you follow, as your impulses will lead you down whichever path you consciously select. 

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: Your karmic future, and how you feel about it, deep down, take center stage this week. This is your normal state, but make sure there’s ten percent of you that is carefully analytical and judicious about the grand moves you’re making. 

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: You might not be aware of it, but you’re subconsciously making some big moves. The rational mind can only do so much planning and thinking, areas in which you excel, but go with your heart, the warm, dramatic self you too often suppress, and achieve the things your fussy mind may not allow of you.

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: You are the great, airy judge of the zodiac, but go on a romp this week, as the moon moves through your area of friends, hopes, and wishes. It can’t, and shouldn’t, always be pie in the sky.

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: Though your will is to feel and intuit the motivations of others, you win this week when you, individually, are the center of attention. This will open up new avenues for you which you will easily analyze and integrate into yourself.

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: You are the great centaur of the zodiac, firing arrows as you gallop towards that which you seek out. However, you can accomplish the same effect merely by expressing the grandeur and drama that is you. No arrows necessary.  

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: There’s an extraordinary amount of emphasis , especially as it relates to your plodding ambition, a normative state for you. However, have you ever thought of stopping your climb to the top, and roaring? You just might catch a chariot instead of having to make the climb by yourself. 

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18:You might be feeling like things are taking a 180 with regard to your relationships and partnerships this week. That’s ok, as a new lease on how you relate to others, with the heart and opposed to the mind, is the way to go. 

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: There is energy available to you this week as you make some moves with regard to the nitty gritty aspects of your work and health. Drama is the key, and you will work out the details later in the week.
