Monday 7/11/16 Ace of Cups
First Quarter in Libra 5:52 PM PST
The Ace of Cups appears when uncontrollable emotions can’t be contained any longer. Mercury square Uranus at 12:29 AM PST will leave you with a hyperactive mind. You could find worries circulating in your head to fill the gaps where boredom dwells. You thinking may felt sped up but think before you speak, otherwise, you could find yourself in a difficult situation. Moon square Pluto at 8:01 AM PST brings compulsive, intense emotions that will compel you to be honest about your feelings. Refuse the temptation to manipulate people and be aware of those who will try to use your feelings against you. Moon square Sun at 5:52 PM PST brings the First Quarter in Libra. You may feel overwhelmed with the way your intentions you set at New Moon are working out. Things may feel out of control and you may feel that nothing that happens today seems fair. But this sullen mood will not dominate the mood for the next month. Venus enters the flashy sign of Leo at 10:34 PM PST where she will stay until 8/5/16. When Venus is in Leo, people will shine their brightest and expect you to notice! This is a fun, flirty time but be careful of asking for more, more, more! If you feel overemotional, the Moon in Libra reminds you to look to your friends and family for support. The number of the day is 9, a number of endings becoming beginnings.

Tuesday 7/12/16 5 of Pentacles
Moon in Libra
Moon Void of Course 8:01 AM PST
Moon Enters Scorpio 1:52 PM PST
The 5 of Pentacles traditionally pictures two figures outside of a church. They could go into the church and escape the snow that surrounds them but they are too prideful to accept help. Moon opposition Uranus at 2:30 AM PST brings relationship clashes that may leave you feeling lonely and isolated later on. Moon square Mercury at 8:01 AM PST brings difficulties with communication so even if someone reaches out to help you today or vice versa, they may have a hard time getting their point across. Moon square Venus at 3:39 PM PST could only continue to fuel conflict with arrogance. The Moon is void of course until She enters Scorpio at 1:52 PM PST. Remember the sting of the Scorpio and watch what you say or do if you don’t want to get hurt. The number of the day is 1, a number of new beginnings.
Mantra: The only person that your pride hurts is yourself.
Wednesday 7/13/16 King of Pentacles
Moon in Scorpio
The King of Pentacles is a man that is the master of his own abundance. He has worked for his financial freedom and has the “Midas Touch” so to speak. If this card does not represent you, it could possibly represent someone you interact with today. Moon square Neptune at 1:47 PM PST heightens your intuition. Mercury enters Leo at 5:47 PM PST on 7/13/16 where He will stay until 7/30/16. When Mercury is in Leo, people may seem so charismatic, they shine like gold. Storytelling and acting may come more naturally than usual. Whatever the outlet of expression, people will strive to be in the spotlight. Moon sextile Pluto at 10:19 PM PST will help loved ones connect emotionally and you’ll feel everyone around you has a heart of gold. The Moon is in Scorpio so you may feel that your desires will never be quenched even though you have everything you could possibly want. The number of the day is 2, reminding you that abundance is a balance.
Mantra: Everything I touch turns to gold.
Thursday 7/14/16 9 of Cups
Moon Void of Course 3:22 PM
The 9 of Cups appears when you’re about to grasp what you really want. It’s the card of wishes coming true. Moon sextile Jupiter 4:23 AM PST will get your day off to a happy start. Moon trine Sun at 11:45 AM PST will keep the energy flowing through the late morning. Moon conjunct Mars at 3:22 PM PST could leave you feeling aggressive but if this energy is directed in a controlled way, that aggression will turn to wisdom and bravery. Passion runs deep while the Moon is in Scorpio but be careful not to become obsessive when the Moon goes void of course. Rather, wait patiently until She turns direct again early tomorrow morning. The number of the day is 3, a number of things coming together.
Mantra: I am blessed.
Friday 7/15/16 Death
Moon in Aquarius
Moon Enters Sagittarius 2:14 AM PST
Sometimes Death comes suddenly but sometimes it bides its time. All things have an ending and beginning and when something dies, it gives way to make room for something to be born born. Remember that today. Moon trine Mercury at 8:42 AM PST will bring good communication, especially in the areas of public speaking and writing. Moon trine Venus reminds us that endings can be beautiful things. Moon conjunct Saturn at 10:45 PM PST reminds us of the cold nature of death.

Saturday 7/16/16 7 of Wands
Moon in Sagittarius
The 7 of Wands appears when you’re fighting an uphill battle and winning. The card traditionally features a man with a raised stick knocking his opponents down the side of a mountain. Like the man on the Tarot card, no matter what challenges come your way today, you’re ready to take them on with the kind of ferociousness that brings victory. Moon square Neptune at 1:26 AM PST brings illusions, fantasies and dreams. Sun square Uranus at 6:31 AM PST can bring disruptions, breakdowns, breakups and breakthroughs.
