Moon in Caner

The Three of Wands is a card that appears when you are waiting for the future to manifest. Be patient, your time is coming. Moon trine Venus at 11:36 AM PST could make for a lazy Sunday.

Monday 9/26/16 King of Cups
Moon in Leo
The King of Cups is the master of his emotions. He accepts everything as it rolls in on the tide of time and out again. He is generous, creative and a good businessman. If he does not represent you, he represents someone you may cross paths with today. Moon square Saturn at 3:34 AM PST will certainly find you in control of yourself with this levelheaded transit. Pluto stations direct at 7:59 AM PST. When Pluto was retrograde, you may have felt old parts of yourself dying. Now you may feel refreshed and reborn, emerging from this Mercury Retrograde shadow period as a new person. It could be an emotional day so like the King of Cups, let your emotions come and go as they flow. This is a powerful time to shed your skin and embrace the person you are meant to be! The Moon is in the brilliant sign of Leo today, illuminating the beautiful person that you are. The number of the day is 8, reminding us that what died during Pluto Retrograde gives you the opportunity to pay off your karma.
Mantra: Butterfly, fly towards the Sun. Your transformation is done.
Tuesday 9/27/16 3 of Swords (Reversed)
Moon Void of Course 1:52 AM PST
Moon Enters Virgo 2:43 PM PST
The 3 of Swords reversed appears when the pain of loss and heartbreak begins to fade. Yesterday Pluto stationed direct, showing us that what is dead must be let go of. Now that we are aware that the pain we experienced was in the name of transformation, the suffering will slowly fade from here on out. Mars enters the Capricorn where he will stay until 11/9/16. While Mars is in Capricorn, people are determined yet disciplined. People are focused on achieving their goals, espcially goals of a material nature. This is a time when people are good for their word. It’s also a very sexual time. Moon trine Uranus at 1:52 AM PST will bring new, exciting expriences. If you are asleep during this transit, this theme may appear in your dreams. Moon trine Mars at 3:27 PM PST will help bring the energy from Mar entering Capricorn into sharp focus. Any plans made now will be strong so make sure to follow through with them. The Moon is void of course between 1:52 AM PST and 2:43 PM PST when it enters Virgo. When the Moon is in Virgo, the devil is in the details. This is another 999 day so the gates for manifestation are wide open as you discover the freedom the that Pluto stationing direct has brought you.
Mantra: The most painful lessons can lead to the most liberating experiences.
Wednesday 9/28/16 8 of Cups
Moon in Virgo
This week is all about honoring transformation our potential by recognizing the transformation we’ve undergone this year. The 8 of Cups appears when we are ready to leave something meaningful behind in search of something better. Everything runs its course and it’s important to know when to move on in the name of growth. Moon sextile Venus at 1:46 AM PST will bring love, art and creativity to your day. If you’re asleep during this time, these themes may appear in your dreams. Moon opposition Neptune at 9:47 AM PST could bring skewed perspectives that leave you feeling inferior. At 12:42 PM PST Moon square Saturn could turn these pessimitic feelings into a downright bad mood. Don’t let it get the best of you. Moon trine Pluto at 7:24 PM PST could bring bring you to a breaking point. If you feel drained, take it easy and be kind to yourself. The Moon is in the picky sign of Virgo today, so try not to be too hard on others or yourself. The number of the day is 1, a number of endings becoming beginnings.
Mantra: All good things come to an end.
Thursday 9/29/16 Strength
Moon in Virgo
The Strength card is a straightforward card that needs no introduction. It’s a card that traditionally depicts a woman taming a beast: reminding us that we too can tame the beast inside us. This week we’ve been able to find empowerment through honoring the parts of us that have passed on and made way for stronger, better versions of ourselves to grow. I find it interesting that the Moon is void of course in Virgo from 3:05 AM PST onward because the lion represents Leo and the maiden represents Virgo. So this makes me feel that we will need to exercise self control to bring ourselves back into balance. Ironically enough, the number of the day is the digit of duality: 2.
Mantra: Beauty and the beast live peacefully inside me.
Friday 9/30/16 The World
Moon Void of course 12:57 AM PST
Moon Enters Cancer 1:33 AM PST
Last Quarter in Cancer
The card of the day is the Prince (Knight) of Cups. The Prince of Cups is a lover, not a fighter. He calls you to take your time and put love into everything you do today. Moon trine Venus at 12:57AM PST will allow you to see the love and beauty around you. If you are asleep during this transit, these themes may appear in your dreams. Mercury trine Pluto at 1:36 AM PST will bring a much needed look inside your thoughts and feelings as you continue to process the events of Mercury Retrograde. Moon square Sun at 2:56 AM PST bring the challenges that come with the last quarter. Everything is cooling down now and if you didn’t manifest what you wanted during this lunar cycle, it’s time to plan your intentions for New Moon. Moon square Jupiter at 6:48 AM PST could bring some egotistical feelings. Remember, your opinions and actions do not make you better than anyone else. But for the most part, this is a favorable transit. Venus enters Scorpio at 7:51 AM PST where she will stay until 10/18/16. During this time, there could be overwhelming encounters in love and relationships. While Venus is in Scorpio, there’s a tendency to demand all or nothing in relationships. People tend to be 100% devoted and yet at the same time, obsessive and demanding. Love and relationships become an anomaly; drawing you in with her intense energy and making sure you, even whens it stings. People could become more adventurous in bed and BDSM isn’t out of the question (if you go there, BE SAFE!). Moon trine Neptune at 7:06 PM PST will bring compassion for others and you’ll let the love shine through. You may also notice a boost in your psychic senses. The Moon is in the sensitive, caring sign of Cancer today, reminding love rules and conquers all. The number of the day is 5, a number of overcoming obstacles.
Mantra: Love lights the way.
Saturday 10/1/16 Queen of Cups
Moon in Cancer
Moon Void of Course 6:42 PM PST
The 10 of Swords is a card of finality. What’s done is done and let what has died be laid to rest. If you find yourself upset about something you can’t change, remember that the worst is over and you’ve been given a chance to set yourself free. Moon opposition Pluto at 3:42 AM PST may tempt you to remain stuck in the past. But the past is only a memory. Moon sextile Mercury at 4:15 AM PST will give you the ability to communicate and constructively deal with these frustrating emotions. If you are asleep during these transits, these themes may appear in your dreams. The inclination to hold yourself back continues with Moon square Uranus at 6:42 PM PST. Honor yourself by recognizing your strengths, not giving into your weaknesses. The Moon is in the emotional sign of Cancer until it goes void of course at 6:42 PM PST. When the Moon is in Cancer, you may feel a little moody but remember, just like the Moon, what is empty will always become full again. The number of the day is 6, reminding you that you can do anything you set your mind to.
Mantra: You’re stronger than you think.
