Sunday 4/19/15 9 of Wands
Moon Void of Course at 7:06 PM EST
The 9 of Wands shows a seasoned warrior who’s taken a good crack to his head. This could also represent the stubborn, bull headed energy from Moon stalled in Taurus. Sometimes if you push too hard, things break. So if you feel like you’ve been beating your head against a wall, relax and don’t worry. Indulge in the arts and pamper yourself. Mercury and the Moon make a sextile with Neptune today that will result in mental breakthroughs you’ve been waiting for. But the Moon also makes a square with Jupiter, bringing doubts that could cloud your vision and prevent you from catching the creative breakthroughs that are looming just ahead of you. Moon conjuncts Mars and makes a trine with Pluto, adding to the potential for emotional outbursts due to injuries you’ve suffered in previous battles. The 9 of Wands reminds you that you are a seasoned warrior and even though you’re hurt, you’ve learned a lesson from that pain. You’ve been here before and you can face anything with strength and determination. You’re so close to getting what you want. Don’t give up now. The Moon goes void of course at 7:06 PM, reminding that if you’re feeling burnt out, take a breather and relax. The numerology of the day is 4, which calls for a level headed approach to everything you do.
Mantra: Been there, done that and I will overcome it again.
Monday 4/20/15 Queen of Pentacles
Moon enters Gemini at 7:28 PM
The Moon is void of course for most of the day so it’s time to let things come to you. The Queen of Pentacles is a sensual woman who drips with abundance and wealth. She attracts her wealth to her and since the Moon is void of course for most of the day, it’s time to step back and let the universe and bless you. The Sun enters Taurus at 5:42 AM, the sign ruled by the lovely Venus. Venus is in Gemini and so the strong Gemini/Venus energy of the day will bust barriers wide open. You will be shown the beauty of everything around you and the solutions to problems will come to you freely. If you take time to thanks for the abundance all around you, then the answers you seek will appear. I’ve been working with the Venus in Gemini energy and it’s been absolutely life changing. I highly recommend that if you feel hopelessly stuck, you work with it too. Venus will be in Gemini until May 7 so you still have time to take full advantage of the opportunities available to you. The biggest challenge for the day is the Mercury in Taurus squre with Jupiter in Leo. If you find yourself with a bad case of the “I can’ts” bring yourself back to staying grounded and grateful in the picture. The numerology of the day is 5, a number that reminds us that all struggles can be overcome.
Mantra: There is beauty in everything.
Tuesday 4/21/15 8 of Swords (Reversed)ab
Moon in Gemini
The Moon in Gemini and Sun in Taurus have provided the flashes of inspiration we needed to see things as how they are and not just how we want them to be. The reversed 8 of swords allows the ropes and blindfold holding the woman captive to fall away. The standing swords hit the ground. Like the woman on the card, you know nothing is holding you back from the freedom that you desired brought by all the Aquarian energy last week. The Moon conjuncts Venus in Gemini, giving you the shakeup you need for restructuring your life. The Moon makes a trine with Jupiter, bringing peaceful revolution. The only thing to fear is fear itself. Change can be scary and some events that lead to very positive things in your life can initially seem catastrophic. The Moon makes an opposite with Saturn, creating the potential for depression even though you finally have arrived at a place where you can make big changes. The Moon squares Neptune and this fear of change may even make you want to continue to hide from the freedom you thought you desired. Resist the urge to fight and don’t be afraid of living the life you’ve dreamed. It’s the best thing you can do for yourself. The numerology of the day is 6 a number of communication and problem solving, strengthening the message that the solution is right in front of you for you to take and act upon.
Mantra: Just do it.
Wednesday 4/22/15 Four of Swords (reversed)
Moon Void of Course at 1: 38 AM
The knight is slowly waking up and a rebirth is waiting for you. The Moon makes a sextile with Uranus, awakening your intuition and awareness. There’s so much waiting for you, it’s time to wake up and see the path laying in front of you. The Moon is void of course so it’s a good time to just let ideas come to you and roll around in your head. Pluto links with Capricorn to help us stay focused on our long term goals. The numerology of the day is 7, asking you to leave your insecurities behind and awake to your full potential. You’re strong enough and you can do this.
Mantra: Rise and shine.
Thursday 4/23/15 Seven of Cups
Moon Enters Cancer at 12:05 AM
The Seven of Cups coupled with the Moon in Cancer shows us the emotional side of our dreams. Luna in Cancer encourages us to seek out the things that make us feel safe, comfortable and ta home. You are coming to realize what dreams you really care about and what dreams are not suited for your path at this time in your life. The Sun makes a sextile with the Moon, putting everything into harmony and flow. The Moon makes a trine with Neptune in Pisces, opening up your subconscious to ideas and inspiration. The tricky part is that the Moon in Cancer may pull us too much toward the past when we’re trying to move to the future. Remember that everything changes, nothing is constant and that so many exciting things are waiting for you in the future. The number of the day is 8, showing us that these dreams can be achieved if we put into them what we want to get back.
Mantra: Dream a little dream.
Friday 4/24/15 2 of Pentacles Reversed
Moon void of course at 1:04 PM
The Moon is void of course again and the Two of Pentacles is in the reversed position so it’s strongly unadvisable to make any investments or spend big money today. Any business started today will make you feel like you’re juggling too much and will most likely not come to fruition. It’s not a good day to start new business, but if you’re wrapping up existing business, the Moon’s sextile with Mercury will act in your favor. You may crave the uncongenial and feel a little restless, especially about finances as the Moon makes an opposite with Pluto. If you feel a little jumbled go within and focus on the good health in mind, body and spirit brought by the Moon making a sextile with Mars. The numerology of the day is 9, signaling an end to the current cycle.
Mantra: Everything in due time.
Saturday 4/18/15 5 of Wands
Moon enters Leo at 9:13 AM
The card that represents the entire energy for the week is Leo, so it’s fitting that the week ends with the Moon in Leo. The energy of Leo is strong and powerful and we’ve been working with this energy all week to give us the strength we need to face the crazy changes happening right now. However, Leo’s energy can be overpowering, like the bright shining sun. The Moon squares the Sun and this may push you into conflicts with others because your light is blinding, powerful and painful to those in darkness. The Moon makes a trine with Saturn, encouraging you to avoid conflict and accept things the way they are because there’s really nothing you can do to change things. We are called to remember that a true warrior does not need to make a show of dominance to gain respect. The number of the day is 1(0), the number of beginnings and endings. It calls us to avoid starting the next cycle embroiled in conflict and instead, cultivate a grounded understanding of your own personal power.
Mantra: I know my own strength.
