It’s the 28th week of the year and the card of the week is the Page of Swords. The Page of Swords represents the spark of an idea. Since there are so many Cups cards this week, these ideas must be fed with loving kindness in order to grow. There’s not really anything major happening in the sky this week so this is more of a week of processing than anything else. However, do be careful on Sunday with the appearance of the Tower card and several challenging squares. It’s the 28th week of the year which in astrology adds up to 1, reminding us that things are always changing.
Mantra: A balance between mind and heart is a good place to start.

Monday 7/10/17 Knight of Cups
Moon in Aquarius
The Knight of Cups is a traditionally masculine card that indicates the appearance of a lover, not a fighter. He is on a journey of love and is in no rush to get to his destination. If he doesn’t represent you, he represents someone you may encounter today. Moon trine Venus at 11:03 AM PST is a sign of happiness, lover and beauty. But Moon opposition Mercury at 3:38 PM PST could bring in some heavier feelings as the inspiration of love from the morning turns into a conflict between head and heart. But this will give you the chance to explore the depths of your soul. The Moon is in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius all day, bringing revolutions in love. The number of the day is 9, a number of near completion.
Mantra: The journey is shorter than you think. Enjoy it.
Tuesday 7/11/17 2 of Wands
Moon in Aquarius
The 2 of Wands is a card of potential realized. What will you do with it? Moon trine Jupiter at 3:20 AM PST is a jolly, generous transit that will bring good feelings with it. Moon sextile Saturn at 6:46 PM PST will find you getting to work this evening as you do what you have to do with a sense of duty. The Moon is still in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius bringing more changes along with it. The number of the day is 1(0), a number of new beginnings.

Moon in Aquarius
Moon Void of Course 5:40 AM PST

No matter what happens today, the King tells you to experience it with loving kindness. Moon sextile Uranus at 5:40 AM PST is the only exact transit today. This is a restless, exciting transit so you may feel like doing something out of the ordinary today. But whatever that is, do it with the intention of love in your heart. The Moon is still in Aquarius in the early hours of the morning. She goes void of course in Aquarius at 5:40 AM PST. While she is void of course, let things happen as they will. You may find the excitement you’re looking for in surrender. The Moon then enters the flowing sign of Pisces at 8:51 AM PST.

Sunday 7/16/17 Tower
Last Quarter in Aries 12:26 PM PST
Moon Void of Course 7:19 PM PST
Moon Enters Taurus 10:04 PM PST
The Tower is a card of unexpected surprises and they’re not always good ones. Keep it low key today because the risk of being “struck by lightning” is great.

If you feel irritable, go for a walk, run or do some other kind of exercise to exert and move that energy. Moon conjunct Uranus at 7:19 PM PST is an impulsive transit.

Mantra: There are some things we can’t change.
