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, your recent drive towards the future that began abruptly in Mid-May comes to a halt. Though you believe in your vision of the future, a good, a priori future, that deserves to come into being, the heavens, as always, have something else in mind. The moon, waxing full and galloping ahead, will pass through the heart of the scorpion, Antares. This is the fixed star known for sudden, war-induced rises but also sudden falls. The great, optimistic planet Jupiter has been lending his hand to this spirit, expanding through the dark, intuitive waters of the sign Scorpio, and you do best, although not easily, to combine this ethos with your own self-expression. Hold on during this time, and protect yourself. It’s not so much about forcing your vision unto the cosmos. Instead dredge up the things that have been languishing in the dark as you assert yourself, rather than hastily demanding your worthy and considerable vision.   

Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: In the coming weeks, you’ll reevaluate the push you were forced to make towards the future that occurred this past May. Disruption is never easy, but if you can swing it, you’ll make great gains.

Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: You’re quite dramatic on the home front, with commensurate optimism to boot. Just make sure you take care to communicate effectively, as family is about conveying nurturance and protection.

Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: The sun has just moved into your money sector, and while this brings power to your pocketbook, it will require an adjustment and balancing of your optimism, especially around the partnerships that flow from this change.

Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22:Happy birthday! While you’re comfortable reveling in yourself this month, your true gains can be made by getting out and about, releasing the dramatist within.

Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: You’re positively brimming with your usual, gallant antics, but beware, you have to hold on and anchor yourself while you’re riding high as the star of the show. 

Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: You may be having urges to express yourself, a hidden part of who you are, but the gains are to be made by how your relate this feeling of expression to others, connecting emotionally which can be a weakness of yours. 

Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: You have a real opportunity to pioneer and flower a new course for yourself, but you must believe. It will take you a bit to wrap your feelings around this and get over past pain, but once you do, there is not stopping you. 

Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: This year has been one of expansion for you, but as of late, you do best to let your dreams do the driving, not your carnal, aggressive impulses. The better angels of yourself with guide you in the direction you really want to go. 

Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: You’re positively buoyant this week, but make sure to hold on as you gallop ahead. Your home base, your anchor, requires that you do as much.

Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: It’s been a slow go for you for some time, with a push and pull between erecting the structures you hold dear while seeing them breaking down. Underneath it all is hidden optimism and belief, but you must allow these feelings to come into the light, and then the structures you work so hard to put in place will illuminate. 

Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18:You are so engaged with the future, and not repeating past failures, that you might be unaware of some good, old-school, down-to-earth work that needs to be done. What are the things that aren’t glamourous but that need tending to? This is your true path forward. 

Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: Your sign naturally tends toward sweet, colorful introversion, but as far as your public persona, bluntness can take you far if you open up to pressing ahead.
