It’s a new year in a new cycle. Enjoy the freshness and beauty of it all. The number of the week is 2, a number of balance.

Sunday 1/8/2017 Page of Wands
Moon Void of Course in Taurus
Moon Enters Gemini 2:06 PM PST
Mercury Stations Direct 1:43 AM PST
The Page of Wands appears when we are starting a new journey ignited by a spark of passion. We’ll certainly see things start to move forward as Mercury Stations direct in Sagittarius after being Retrograde since 12/19/16 at 1:43 PM PST. I find this interesting because Sagittarius is a fire sign, and fire also rules the suit of Wands. The fact that the Moon also enters the air ruled Gemini today at 2:06 PM PST, also ruled by Mercury, leads me to believe that the biggest movements forward will be mental and intellectual. If you have been in a “stuck” mindset, don’t expect that to last any longer. If approached correctly, tapping into the potential presented by this shit will allow you to get your mind thinking in the direction you want to go. You may be hit with sudden realizations and it will be like a fire being lit under your ass. But the energy of the Pages tends to peter out if not embraced so fan those flames and let your desires catch fire. The Mercury Retrograde Shadow Period energy will be intensified through Wednesday so make sure you double, triple and quadruple check everything you do and watch your p’s and q’s. Minor disruptions in communication and plans may put a little bit of a damper on your new found motivation through 1/27/17 but if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again because the energy of the 1 year is kicking in and pushing us forward. The number of the day coincidentally also happens to be 1, a number of endings becoming beginnings.
Mantra: “A spark becomes a flame, a flame becomes a fire.” — Tool
Monday 1/9/17 Wheel of Fortune
Moon in Gemini
Mercury Retrograde Post Shadow Period Intensified
The Wheel of Fortune is a card of mastering the mysterious. This card reminds us that a change of luck is on the way for the better. But we must sacrifice something in order for the Wheel to spin in our favor Moon square Venus at 12:30 AM PST may find you feeling lazy and lethargic. If you’re asleep during this transit, expect to sleep well and have pleasant dreams. Moon square Neptune at 6:18 AM PST brings illusions and foggy perceptions. Give yourself plenty of time to get moving this morning because the energy will be rather sluggish. Moon square Mars at 4:40 PM PST could find you feeling pugnacious and irritable. Take a moment to appreciate the good things in your life and blow off some steam with exercise if possible. Moon sextile Uranus at 11:36 PM PST could find you feeling adventurous. If the feeling hits as you’re getting ready for bed, do something simple like research an exciting vacation spot to satisfy this feeling. The Moon is in the dualistic sign of Gemini today so you may feel like everything is moving super fast. If you feel overwhelmed, slow down and take in the ups and downs of life — but especially make sure to give thanks for all the blessings. Things are looking up. The number of hte day is 2, a number of balance.
Mantra: My Cup is half full and there’s plenty of room for more!
Tuesday 1/10/17 King of Pentacles
Moon in Gemini
Moon Void of Course 1:38 PM PST
MoonEnters Cancer 2:49 PM PST
The King of Pentacles appears when someone with the Midas touch is about to bring abundance in to your life. If this card with its traditionally masculine energy doesn’t represent you, it represents someone that fosters this energy that you will interact with today. Moon trine Jupiter will bring happy, generous energy to your early morning if you’re awake and pleasant dreams if your asleep. However, this could be disrupted at 2:31 AM PST with Moon opposition Saturn’s dismal energy. You could feel suddenly depressed if you’re awake and have sullen dreams if you’re asleep. Sun square Uranus at 8:22 AM PST could bring upsets and arguments if you’re feeling restrictive. Break out of the box if you can to satisfy your urge for freedom. Moon opposition Mercury at 1:38 PM PST could muddle communication as the Moon goes void of course. Try to do as little as possible until Moon enters the emotional sign of Cancer at 2:49 PM PST. Mas sextile Pluto at 11:15 PM PST will bring you the revelations you need to go after what you want. These revalations will involve group activities with you possibly taking a leadership role. The number of the day is 3, a number of things coming together.
Mantra: Share the wealth.
Wednesday 1/11/17 3 of Swords
Mercury Retrograde Post Shadow Period Intensified.
The 3 of Swords appears as a reminder that sometimes things just don’t work out the way we plan. Whether someone breaks your heart or you walk away disappointed, know that there is something bigger and better waiting for you. Moon trine Venus at 4:51 AM PST will bring creativity, love and beauty — perhaps even something heartbreakingly beautiful — to your early morning. Moon trine Neptune is a green light to go with your gut. Honor the great mysteries of life. Moon opposition Pluto at 7:06 PM PST could bring intense encounters that change your perception of things. Be open to that change. Moon trine Mars at 8:08 PM PST will bring the confidence you need to step up and do what must be done in order to take control of your life and emotions. This transit will bring strength if you suffered any blows to your confidence due to things that were out of your control today. This will lead into Sun square Jupiter at 8:42 PM PST, which will bring you your chance to take the lead. A surge of optimism will be available in order to help you drive away any lingering negative thoughts or feelings. Just try not to get your ego too pumped up. The Moon is in the emotional sign of Cancer all day. Bring nothing but love with you wherever you go. The number of the day is 4, reminding us that even though things may seem shaky, you are being given the opportunity to build a firm foundation.
Thursday 1/12/17 6 of Cups
Full Moon in Cancer 3:34 AM PST
Moon Void of Course 3:34 AM PST
Moon Enters Leo 4:08 PM PST
Mercury Retrograde Shadow Period until 1/27/17
The 6 of Cups is a nostalgic card that appears when someone or something from your past will become relevant again but this time, the experience will be different. Moon square Uranus at 12:34 AM PST could bring distortions and illusions to the waking and strange dreams to the sleeping. Moon square Jupiter at 3:07 AM PST could bring optimism that goes to your head. Be careful about coming off as egotistical. Moon opposite Sun brings the Full Moon in the loving sign of Cancer. The Moon will then go void of course until She enters Leo at 4:08 PM PST. When the Moon is in Leo, you’ll shine your best and brightest. Mercury slides into Capricorn again where he will stay until 2/7/17. When Mercury is in Capricorn people prefer stability and order. But since we are in the Post Retrograde Shadow Period until 1/27/17, this may be skewed. We may call into question the order of things simply because everything seems so unstable! There’s so much new energy all around us so don’t be afraid. The energy around you like clay and ready for you to mold your future with it. Venus conjunct Neptune at 1:54 PM PST at 1:54 PM PST carries the potential to bring soul mates together. This is the kind of spiritual love that dreams are made of. Whether it be with family, friends or lovers, when the effects of this transit are felt, you will come to inherently understand why certain people are in your life. The 6 of Cups is a beautiful card to represent this and is a card that expresses the innocence of reincarnated souls meeting again for the first time. This card holds a special place in my heart and the fact it appears today is striking. The number of the day is 5, a number of overcoming obstacles.
Mantra: When destined souls meet, a piece of Heaven shines on earth.
Friday 1/13/17 8 of Pentacles
Moon in Leo
The 8 of Pentacles is a card of hard work. Traditionally, the man is very focused, working away at building his dream. It’s a time to learn new skills and put them to good use to further your success. Keep up the good work. You’re well on your way to success. There are no exact transits today but the Moon is in Leo so your work will stand out and shine like the shiny 8 pentacles in the picture. There’s no way you won’t get the attention you’re looking for today. The number of the day is 6, a number of victory.
Mantra: I will what I want.
Saturday 1/14/16 10 of Wands
Moon Void of Course 7:17 AM PST
Moon Enters Virgo 7:52 AM PST
The 10 of Wands appears when life feels overwhelming. You’ve come so far and have an abundant harvest but it’s too abundant. You can barely handle all the success that’s coming your way. Hang in there. Get help if you need it and refine your time management. If you do this, you’ll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Moon trine Uranus at 3:25 AM PST brings rebellious excitement and surprises. If you’re asleep during this transit, these themes may appear in your dreams. You’ll find yourself waking up on the right side of the bed with Moon sextile Jupiter at 6:21 AM PST. Moon trine Saturn at 7:17 AM PST will turn that good feeling into productivity. Since the Moon also goes void of course at this time, engage in passive, not active work and focus on wrapping up projects rather than starting new ones if you can. The Moon enters the detail oriented sign of Virgo at 7:52 PM PST but don’t get caught up in perfectionism. Moon trine Mercury at 10:58 PM PST finishes the day off with flowing communication. Take some time to reflect on the events of the day and process how you can increase your productivity. The number of the day is 7, a number of reassessment and reevaluation.
Mantra: I attract the help I need in order to share in my abundance.
