Monday 9/4/17 Lovers
Numerology: 5
Moon in Aquarius
Moon void of Course in Aquarius 10:15 PM PST
Moon enters Pisces 10:28 PM PST
Mercury Retrograde Intensified
The Lover is a card that reminds us that our choices create our reality. Mercury Retrograde is intensified today so the best choice would be to stick close to home to avoid delays and disruptions that usually come as Mercury appears to slow down and prepare to station direct. Moon sextile Saturn at 6:04 AM PST is a transit that brings with it the sense of duty and determination to get things done. Moon trine Jupiter at 8:44 AM PST is a optimistic transit that brings joy and generosity. Moon sextile Uranus at 6:56 PM PST is a revolutionary transit that allows you to break barriers that are standing in your way. Moon opposition Mercury at 7:33 PM PST is a transit that brings conflict between the head and heart but also gives you the space to have a talk with your soul. Moon opposition Mars at 10:15 PM PST is an irritable, argumentative transit that brings a much needed release even if it begins with an outburst. Sun opposition Neptune at 10:28 PM PST brings conflict and uncertainty. You don’t need any more outbursts so do your best to avoid confrontation. The Moon is in the Revolutionary sign of Aquarius for most of the day so if you want to try something new, try listening to a new album or getting rid of something that needs to go since Mercury is so close to stationing direct. The Moon is void of course between 10:15 PM PST and 10:28 PM PST so take a short break and let things just be. Then keep going with the flow after the Moon enters Pisces at 10:28 PM PST. The number of the day is 5, a number of overcoming challenges.
Mantra: Achievement is a choice.

Tuesday 9/5/17 The Joker
Numerology: 6
Moon in Pisces
Mercury Stations Direct 4:30 AM PST
The Joker is a card that was added to the Tarot by Richard Hartnett. When he appears, it’s a sign not to take life so seriously. And with Mercury stationing direct today, it’s best to laugh when plans go awry rather than be angry about it. This is a day where it’s best to just do like the Pisces Moon and go with the flow because the more that you try to control things today, the more out of control they may seem. Mars also enters Virgo today where he will stay until 12/9/17. When Mars is in Virgo, people will have a tendency to focus on their goals. But with the Mars energy coming into play, it may be hard for you to stay focused for long. Finishing projects during this time may become a real challenge. This is because the energy in the air may leave you craving new experiences. The good news is that this is a low drama position for Mars so the potential to keep conflicts to a minimum is there. The number of the day is 6, a number of victory.
Mantra: Life is too short to not laugh at myself.

Moon sextile Pluto at 5:39 AM PST is a transit that brings outbursts that clear the air.
