The overall energy of this week is the Three of Cups. This is a card that’s all about getting by with a little help from your friends. It shows three women with their cups raised in a toast, celebrating, uplifting and empowering each other. Traditionally, this card celebrates the sisterly bond between women but it can also refer to bromances in modern times. It’s the 14th week of the year so 1+4= 5 in numerology. Five is a number of hardships and struggles, so the Three of Cups reminds us to turn to our friends and loved ones when we’re in times of need. Looking at the overall forecast for the week, there are some pretty difficult challenges ahead. Don’t be afraid to turn to your support network when you need it. And remember, when your friends need help, return the favor.

Sunday 4/5/15 8 of Wands
Moon Enters Scorpio at 3:04 PM EST
Expect the unexpected. It’s one of those days where a matter of seconds will make all the difference. The 8 of Wands brings lightning fast changes so stay on your toes. To intensify matters, the Moon enters Scorpio at 3:04 EST and makes an opposition with Mars 10:58 PM EST. These energies may make Easter a little rocky, especially at family gatherings. The numerology for the day is 8, which is a number of karma. So anything that comes out of the blue is what you’ve put out to the universe returning to you. The eclipse on Saturday morning was all about forcing you to give up what you don’t need, so expect the vibrations to be felt not only today, but through the entire week.
Mantra: Karma doesn’t have to be a bitch.
Monday 4/6/15 The Sun
Moon in Scorpio
The Sun is a card of energy and vitality. Try to keep a sunny disposition because the Moon in Scorpio will bring heightened sensitivity and the possibility for moodiness. The Moon also makes a trine with Neptune and a sextile with Pluto, emphasizing heightened emotions. The sextile with Pluto could lead to emotional outbursts, especially if there are unresolved issues left over from Sunday. There may also be a desire to do some emotional spending with the Moon making a trine with Neptune, which is also unadvisable. All in all, although the Sun is a very positive card, sometimes if you stand in the Sun for too long, it makes you hot, tired and cranky. Know when to take a break and lay in the shade! Mercury in Aries makes a trine with Jupiter in Leo today so this will add some much need optimism to the mix and help amplify the good influences of the happy Sun card. The day is a 9, suggesting that all the crazy emotions you’re experiencing are a result of things you’ve been avoiding confronting. Sit with these emotions for a minute to locate their root and then work towards finding a solution. It would be a good time to go out with a supportive friend for dinner or drinks (but don’t over indulge) who will listen to you vent about any issues that may be bothering you.
Mantra: If I can’t take the heat, it’s time to get out of the kitchen.
Tuesday 2/7/15 Knight of Cups
Moon Void of Course at 4:42 PM EST
The Knight of Cups is an emotional romantic. He jumps into emotional situations, especially those involving love and romance without thinking about what he’s doing. The Moon will also make an opposition with Venus, amplifying the moodiness and sensitivity. The trick is to turn the sensitive emotions of the Knight to your advantage. If you feel extra sensitive because you feel wronged by someone, use that to cultivate compassion for the person who hurt you. You can also use the Knight to cultivate compassion for yourself and accept yourself as who you are in the present moment. The Knight is also creative, so take some time to enjoy the arts or work on your own artwork. The day is 1(0), symbolizing the ending and the beginning of a cycle. You alone have the power to choose what ends and what begins.
Mantra: I choose to balance my mind and my heart.
Wednesday 4/8/15 4 of Pentacles
Moon Enters Sagittarius at 1:08 AM EST
The Four of Pentacles shows a conservative, grumpy, false king who clings to the modest power he has because he doesn’t want to admit that he’s not as rich and influential as he thinks he is. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 1:08 AM calling us to defeat the energy of this stagnant king and bring change into our lives. But with the Moon making a square to Neptune, beware of jumping the gun and making goals to change too many things at once. The Moon is conjunct Saturn amplifying the feeling of being stuck but giving you the power and determination to accept change. Jupiter goes direct in Leo after five months in retrograde. We will have new insights into our own talents and receive a boost in self esteem.The numerology for the day is 2, reminding us that for real change to happen, we have to grow into a balanced person.
Mantra: Time to put the paper crown away and become the real master of my own destiny.
Thursday 4/9/15 Page of Cups
Moon Void of Course at 1:42 EST
The Page of Cups call us to be open to new experiences in love and emotions. Maybe someone you’ve been at odds with will come to you and try to bury the hatchet. The Moon trines the Sun so these healing opportunities will come to you on their own. Your intuition in situations that involve communication will lead you in your interactions with others so follow your gut and let things flow as the Moon makes a trine with Uranus and Mercury. It’s a great time for communication and negotiation as Mercury and the Sun make a superior conjunction. The number of the day is three, showing that when two people come together, they can overcome anything.
Mantra: I’m open to hearing what others have to say.
Friday 4/10/15 7 of Cups
Moon enters Capricorn at 8:47 AM
The dreamy, Seven of Cups is back again this Friday (that’s two Fridays in a row. Must be the TGIF energy in the air). It’s been a tough week and you may be feeling like you just want to escape form it all. But the energy of the Moon in Capricorn brings a pessimistic taste to you dreams. But the good news is that the Moon’s trine with Mars will help us work towards our goals. The Moon makes sextiles with Neptune and Pisces which could help you ground or make your dreams expand. Either way, it will be beneficial to pushing forward. The numerology for the day is 4, reminding us that we need to stay grounded to maintain stability.
Mantra: Nothing is impossible.
Saturday 4/11/15 10 of Wands
Moon in Capricorn
The 10 of Wands is a card that shows someone who has taken on more than he can handle. He feels burnt out and overwhelmed. And considering the week you’ve had, it’s no wonder! Take some time to give yourself a pat on the back because you deserve it! You’ve done a good job and for what it’s worth, I’m proud of us for making it through the trials this week together. It’s the last quarter of the Moon so it’s a great time to check in and chock up your successes. Venus enters Gemini until end of the first week of May. It’s the realm of socialization, so make sure you don’t over book yourself
