Sunday 1/15/2017 5 of Cups
Moon in Virgo
The 5 of Cups is a card of loss. However, don’t get stuck dwelling on what was. Realize that there are still many blessings in your life to be grateful for. Your feelings may be hurt, but if you can flip your perspective, you’ll realize things aren’t as bad as they seem. Moon opposition Neptune at 2:08 PM PST may leave you feeling guilty for things that aren’t your fault. Don’t let these negative thoughts hurt your self esteem. Moon opposition Venus at 7:58 PM PST could leave you feeling lazy, lethargic and needy. If you feel despondent because you’re not getting the attention you desire, make sure to take time to do something nice to pamper yourself, like taking a bubble bath or snuggling up in bed with a good book. But avoid consumption because it could lead to excess. The Moon is in the picky sign of Virgo today so try not to get hung up in details and look at the whole picture. The number of the day is 8, reminding us that karma is a bitch.
Mantra: You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone.
Monday 1/16/17 Lovers
Moon in Virgo
The Lovers is one of the most romantic cards in the Tarot but this card doesn’t always directly mean romance.

If you are asleep during this transit, it may appear in your dreams. Moon opposition Mars at 11:02 AM PST may leave you feeling irritable and pugnacious. Get some exercise to blow off some steam if you can. Moon square Saturn at 2:13 PMPST could leave you feeling pessimistic and depressed. This too shall pass. The Moon goes void of course with Moon trine Sun at 10:09 PM PST. This transit will bring happiness, harmony and flow to your night. It’s a time to relax, wind down and receive.

The number of the day is 2, which is a sign of balance, like the scales of justice. All in all, looks like karma will weigh in today. Make sure you own up with truth and honesty to whatever mistakes you may have made. And if accused, make sure you can prove your innocence.
