The overall energy of the week is The Star. It’s the 17th week of the year so 1+7 = 8 in numerology. 8 is a number of karma; it’s a number that shows that what you put in, you get back. Ironically enough, the Star card, which is also numbered 17 adds up to 8 in numerology as well. The Star card itself is a card of hope, beauty and balance. It is ruled by Aquarius, the air sign that is associated with freedom and creativity. So if we put it all together, even if karma is biting you in your ass this week, remain hopeful and know that you’re paying off your debt. The things that happen, good and bad, are all things you brought upon yourself due to the decisions that you made. These are things that will lead you to personal transformation. What you desire is on the way; don’t lose hope, things can only get better from here. To get the forecast in your inbox each week, subscribe here http://eepurl.com/bfEXmT

Sunday 4/26/15 Ace of Cups
Moon in Leo
The Ace of Cups is a beautiful card that asks us to become aware of the blessings, especially in love, all around us. The cup is radiant and overflowing, asking us to embrace our full potential to love. The Moon is in Leo, bringing the traditionally masculine attribute of strength to balance out the traditionally feminine trait of love and emotions. The Moon is conjunct Jupiter bringing healthy optimism along with it. The Moon makes a sextile with Venus, bringing a mellow attitude that could help push the breakthroughs that are possible when the Moon makes a trine with Uranus at 8:06 PM EST. Best to go to bed early because the Moon will square Mars at 11:34 PM and may bring some moodiness with it that will disrupt all the good things that happened during the day. Venus in Gemini sextiles Uranus today, making way for pleasant surprises. The numerology of the day is 2, showing that all is right and balanced in the world. All in all, it’s going to be a great day.
Mantra: By embracing balance, I become whole.
Moon VOC at 10:12 AM
Moon Enters Virgo at 9:07 PM
The Moon is void of course for a good part of the day so it’s a good day to rest and re-evaluate., The card of the day is the 4 of Cups so the break may leave you feeling bored, stagnant and restless. It doesn’t help that the Moon will square Mercury at 10:12 AM, amplifying your antsy pants and complicating communication. The Moon enters Virgo at 9:07 PM EST adding to your fussy, persnickety attitude. The number of the day is 3, reminding you to recall the balance you felt yesterday and continue to embrace that fullness when you feel empty.
Mantra: I am satisfied with the Universe as it is.
Tuesday 4/28/15 Justice
Moon in Virgo
The Moon in Virgo may make you feel a little cranky feeling things aren’t fair. The Justice card is here to remind you that actually, yes they are. The Moon squares Saturn at 4:00 AM, so you may wake up on the wrong side of the bed with feelings of depression. Try not to be too judgmental of others if you’re out and about in the morning. We’re all just spiritual beings having a human experience after all. Venus in Gemini makes a square to Chiron in Pisces, opening old wounds that still need healing. The good news is that the Moon will make a trine with the Sun at 1:37 PM, bringing you back into flow. By 4:00 PM, when the Moon opposites Neptune and you’ll feel sympathy and compassion or those around you. It’s a good time to think back to the anxiety of the morning, take a good look at yourself and make some judgements about how to remove stress from your life so you can remain balanced. The number of the day is 4, a number calling for cultivating a stable mind.
Mantra: I choose my experiences.
Wednesday 4/29/15 The Tower
Moon in Virgo
The Tower is one of the most dramatic cards in the entire Tarot deck. It’s a card of destruction, leveling the playing field, outbursts and flashes of inspiration. One thing is for sure, it’s going to be an explosive day. If you don’t already, it would be a good idea to do some grounding and centering work as soon as you wake up to make sure your mind is in the right place for all the potential disruptions you could encounter today. Remember, it’s not the end of the world and anything dramatic that happens is only happening to make way for the new. The Tower you built just wasn’t stable enough to stand on its own and it’s time to start over. Fortunately, the Sun in Taurus makes a sextile to Neptune in Pisces, showing you things aren’t as they seem initially. The Moon makes a trine with Pluto at 4:38 AM EST, setting the early morning up for emotional outbursts and discontentment. The Moon will square Venus at 3:38 PM EST, bringing about the kind of oversensitivity that requires solitude. Avoid social situations if you can because people may be prone to take things out of context. Things will improve by 4:21 PM EST when the moon makes a trine with Mars, bringing more harmonious energy and vigor to you. The number of the day is 5, of course, a number that suggests that there will be hardships and complications to overcome.
Mantra: With destruction comes rebirth.
Thursday 4/30/15 Temperance
Moon Void of Course at 8:23 AM EST
Moon Enters Libra at 10:03 AM EST
All week the call has been to stay balanced, stay level headed and stay focused. Archangel Michael appears on the Temperance card to remind us of the same thing. Just like on the Star card, our card for the week, Michael has one foot on land and one in the water, driving the need for balance home. The day starts out with the Moon in Libra makes a trine with Mercury at 8:23 AM EST so it’s a great time for communication, writing and doing business. If things got a little wonky with some of the bad communication mojo running wild earlier in the week, today is a perfect day to set things straight. The Moon makes a sextile with Saturn at 4:33 PM EST. The Moon is no longer in Virgo and we begin to feel less fussy and open to accepting duty instead of dwelling on why things aren’t the way we want them to be. Mercury comes home to Gemini at 10:00 PM, bringing with it lots of creative and intellectual energy. Mercury will be in Gemini until July 8th. However, Mercury goes retrograde on 5/18 or 5/19 (depending on what hemisphere you’re in) so things may get a little shaken up soon. The number of the day is 6, emphasizing that communication channels are open and ready to be taken advantage of.
Mantra: I will balance my speech and action to obtain harmony.
Friday 4/18/15 2 of Cups
Moon in Libra
The 2 of Cups is a card of partnership. It can be romantic but doesn’t have to be. The Moon makes a sextile to Jupiter at 12:59 PM, bringing peace, harmony and happiness. This is a great time to celebrate partnerships and to form new ones. However, at 5:08 PM, the Moon squares Pluto, bringing about uneasiness and jealously that could come between you and people you have strong partnerships with. At 9:54 PM, the Moon opposes Uranus, causing more disruptions. Affirming what you appreciate about partnerships in your life. This will allow you to maintain harmonious relationships with the people you value most. The number of the day is 5, asking us to be aware of conflicts and creative approaches to overcoming them.
Mantra: There is no “I” in “team”.
Saturday 4/2/15 2 of Swords
Moon Void of Course at 10:03 AM
Moon Enters Scorpio at 9:47 PM
The woman on the 2 of Swords card is blindfolded, refusing to take action because she refuses to see what is in front of her. The Moon makes a trine with Venus, brining relaxed, peaceful attitudes as long as you try not to focus on problems. The Moon enters Scorpio at 9:47 PM, bringing about critical feelings in the evening. There is the tendency to dwell on problems today but the number of the day is 6, reminding us that it’s OK to talk to someone if you need to.
Mantra: The glass is half full.
