It’s the 37th week of the year and the card of the week is the Three of Cups. This is a card of celebration, love and fun. For all of you looking for love and sex out there, Venus is very active this week but she’s still in retrograde so approach any romantic relationships with a fun, free, flirty attitude. If you meet someone cute, don’t make a move until Venus goes direct on September 6. Even then, Mercury and Venus will both be in their shadow periods so keep that in mind as well. In all, it’s a good week to have fun and generally not take life too seriously despite a few challenging aspects that are happening this week. In numerology, 37 reduces to 1, indicating new beginnings but don’t put too much meaning into things happening now because they aren’t set up to last with what’s happening in the stars for the next few weeks. Mercury goes retrograde on September 17 and will go direct on October 9, so the timing will be better for long term love and relationships to begin once October comes.

Numerology: 1 (0)
Moon in Pisces
Moon void of course at 11:53 PM PST
The card of the day is the 9 of Pentacles. You will feel free and independent today as The you realize you make your own abundance. Moon is in Pisces for most of the day which is a dreamy sign. That could cause some conflict with Moon trine Saturn, which is all about emotional stability and conservatism. Perhaps the best compromise is to mix things up a bit, get out and do something that you enjoy that you haven’t done for a long time to balance the desire for freedom and living your dreams with Capricorn’s conservative nature. The number of the day is 1 (0), a number of new beginnings.

Monday 8/31/15 Judgement
Moon enters Aries 1:33 AM PST
The card of the day is Judgement, a card of awakenings, like the blast from Gabriel’s trumpet calling you to action. The other aspects of the day will bring the meaning of this card into perspective for you. The Moon enters Aries at 1:33 AM PST so you may wake up feeling irritable if things don’t go your way. Push those feelings aside because they will stand in the way of you getting the most out of what today has to teach you. Moon conjunct Mercury may leave you feeling judgmental but remember that a lot of times, passing on others is actually a reflection of what’s going on inside you. The Sun conjunct Neptune will only confuse things, especially if the call to action you receive is volatile. You may all of a sudden find yourself in an intense sexual situation thanks to Venus conjunct Mars. If you feel it, go with it. If not, channel that energy in to creative endeavors. Moon square Pluto warns you to be aware of people who may try to manipulate you into doing something you don’t want to do. This could also cause conflicts. There’s a lot simmering in the pot today so it’s best to take things as they come, stay grounded and think everything through before you act. There’s also a lot of self critical energy around so be sure not to project it on other people. The number of the day is 2, a reminder to stay balanced in the face of confusion and aggression.
Mantra: By refusing to criticize others, I refuse to criticize myself.
Tuesday 9/1/15 4 of Pentacles
Moon void of Course 9:37 AM PST
The Four of Pentacles is a card that recognizes our need for stability in our finances. And the aspects of the day are all pretty stability oriented. Moon trine Venus brings out our appreciation for love and beauty. You may notice that you will attract sexual attention but after 9:37 AM PST, you should avoid starting new relationships because the Moon is void of course. Rather, enjoy being admired. Moon trine Mars will bring confidence in whatever you do and the attention you get from others will only magnify it. Take advantage of this aspect if you find yourself in a leadership position today. The Lunar occultation of Uranus will bring intense breakthroughs in situations where you may feel stuck. Let the ideas flow but don’t act until the Moon is direct again, although in all honesty, I’d wait until October (if possible) to take any big action due to Venus still being in retrograde and Mercury getting ready to go retrograde. Any action taken now would only disrupt your stability and not for the better. The number of the day is 9, reflecting how intense the aspects over the past few days have been and signaling that a new beginning is on the way due to the energy you’ve faced.
Mantra: I am strong, I am powerful, I am beautiful.
