Monday 2/1/16 4 of Cups
Moon in Scorpio
Moon Void of Course 4:35 PM PST
The 4 of Cups is a card of meditation and contemplation. The only downside is that you may be so distracted from looking within that you miss opportunities. For most of the day in the Western Hemisphere, the transits all favor communication and working with others, not alone. If you feel challenged, it’s OK to take some time to refocus. Let the feelings of frustration pass and then move on with your day. Resist the urge to withdraw into yourself and dwell on your problems. Moon conjunct Mars at 2:28 AM may bring irritability that causes distortion of the senses. Although this transit has the potential to be a pugnacious one, when channeled correctly, that energy can be turned into bravery. Moon sextile Pluto at 4:20 AM PST will bring deep emotions to the surface. You may find yourself trying to unravel mysteries by engaging in compulsive behavior. If you’re asleep during either of these two transits, the energy may influence your dreams. Moon sextile Mercury at 7:01 AM PST will leave you feeling talkative, sociable and sensitive to the feelings of others. Moon sextile Jupiter at 4:35 PM PST will bring happiness, harmony and generosity to your late afternoon and evening hours. The Moon is in the passionate but secretive sign of Scorpio until it goes void of course at 4:35 PM PST. The number of the day is 3, a number of things coming together.
Mantra: I am present in everything that I do.
Tuesday 2/2/2016 The Tower
Moon Enters Sagittarius 7:50 AM PST
The Tower is a card that is a flash of inspiration or a sudden message that could rock your world. This message will most likely be karma based. The Moon is in Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, the planet named for the god of sky and lightening. Today, some may find themselves struck down by their actions coming back on them. Others may find that they are suddenly rewarded for good deeds with sudden strikes of good luck. It is also the pagan holiday of Imbolc. Imbolc celebrates the first light of the return of day. The ice and frost of winter is cracking and Spring is not too far away. Make sure to set your intentions for what you would like to grow in your life. To symbolically celebrate setting these intentions, plant a few seeds to represent your dreams. Grow and foster them during the year, as you focus on achieving your goals. Watch yourself grow alongside your seeds throughout the year. The number of the day is 4, reminding us that the stability of our foundation is determined by what energies we cultivate in our lives.
Mantra: Lightening is silent until it strikes.
Wednesday 2/3/16 The Sun
Moon in Sagittarius
The card of the day is the Sun, associated with energy, fun, optimism, innocence and limitless potential. Moon square Neptune at 12:26 AM PST will bring clouded thinking to the early morning hours. Mars trine Pluto at 2:47 AM PST is a good transit for working towards goals and self-improvement. Hard work put in now will pay off later. If you’re asleep during these transits, these energies could appear in your dreams. Sun sextile Saturn at 10:18 AM PST will bring big accomplishments from paying attention to detail. Moon conjunct Saturn may bring feelings of isolation and guilt so try to make the negatives into positives. If you’re in a funk around lunch time, Moon sextile Sun at 11:37 AM PST will lift you up with the kind of vibrant energy the Sun card promises. Moon trine Uranus at 4:58 PM PST will leave you craving excitement in the evening. Since the Moon is in the energetic, jolly sign of Sagittarius for most of the day, get out and do something new and different. The number of the day is 5, reminding us that if were faced with hardship the day before, the obstacles can will overcome today.
Mantra: Keep on the sunny side of life.
Thursday 2/4/16 6 of Pentacles
Moon Void of Course
Moon enters Capricorn 4:44 PM PST
The 6 of pentacles is a card of giving and receiving. It is a reminder that everything you give comes back to you. Even if you have nothing material to give, such as money, you can give your time, a smile or even advice. When you give to others, abundance flows back to you. And when you receive graciously, you keep that cycle flowing. Moon square Jupiter at 2:04 AM is the only transit for the day. This is a transit of generosity and giving. Keep that in mind as you go about your day and make sure to help those in need. The Moon is void of course until 4:44 PM PST when it enters the hardworking sign of Capricorn. Resist the Capricorn urge for miserliness. Instead, share with others and you will find that the weight of Saturn isn’t as heavy as you thought it is. The number of the day is 6, a number of victory and communication.
Mantra: Abundance is a cycle. Share the wealth.

Moon in Capricorn

Moon sextile Neptune at 8:25 AM PST will find you daydreaming of the life you want to live. Venus conjunct Pluto at 5:12 PM PST will find you seeking escape through love. However, this transit does bring the potential to heal relationships. If you’re looking for love or you’re in a new relationship, beware the power of infatuation. Moon conjunct Pluto at 10:01 PM PST takes this energy even further and could turn infatuations into obsessions.
