Monday 10/16/17 Temperance
Moon in Virgo
Temperance traditionally means have patience, but this card has a more significant meaning for me. I’m a devotee of St. Michael and he’s the angel that traditionally appears on the card, so this card to me always tells me to pay close attention to what happens today, even if it’s rather mundane on the surface. Moon opposition Neptune at 1:32 AM PST is a transit that brings judgement impairing sensitivity. Sun sextile Saturn at 4:13 AM PST is a good transit to get things done under. If you are asleep during these transits, these themes may appear in your dreams. Moon trine Pluto at 10:44 AM PST is a transit that may bring strong emotions that need to be released. Let them come and pass. Moon square Saturn at 10:23 PM PST is a serious, somber transit. You may want to try to get to bed early. The Moon is in the Venus ruled sign of Virgo, so be on the lookout for messages of love hidden in the details. The number of the day is 9, a number of near completion.
Mantra: Listen for whispers of love.
Tuesday 10/17/17 3 of Wands
Moon Void of Couse 4:27 AM PST
Moon Enters Libra 10:35 AM PST
The 3 of Wands is a card of looking to the future. There are limitless possibilities on the horizon. Which future do you choose? Mercury enters the devilish sign of Scorpio today at 12:59 AM PST where He will stay until 11/05/17. When Mercury is in Scoripo, people will act light knights, noble and honorable towards anything that they truly care for. If life has seemed full of mystery lately, it’s only just begun. We are about to wade deeper into the unexplained. Just as things are starting to make sense, more questions arise. Moon conjunct Mars at 4:27 Am PST is a bold, pugnacious and audacious, if you feel the effects of this energy it’s time to release some of those pint up emotions! It would be best to get some exercise or do some deep relaxing if you can. And if all else fails Moon conjunct Venus at 6:57 PM PST will calm things down if the day has been intense with romance and beauty. The Moon is void of course in Virgo from 4:27 AM PST to 10:35 AM PST. She will then enter the balanced sign of Libra where She will stay for the rest of the day. Mercury, Venus and the Moon are all in Libra bringing balance to your head and heart. The number of the day is 1(0), a number of new beginnings.

Wednesday 10/18/17 9 of Pentacles
Moon in Libra
The 9 of Pentacles is a card of independence and abundance. It’s your turn to stand in your own power. Mercury conjunct Jupiter at 1:55 AM PST is a transit that will help you gain a different perspective on the world around you. You will be open and tolerant to opinions and ideas today. It’s a good transit to do business under but don’t be blinded to the details by optimism. Moon square Pluto at 6:02 PM PST is a compulsive, dishonest transit which is why we need to combine the two meanings of these transits together because they have the potential to play off of one another. You will see things for what they are today so things could get real. However, you have the potential to find out what you really want if you’ve felt adrift lately. The Moon is in the balanced sign of Libra today so expect karma to be a big player in anything major happens today. The number of the day today is 2, also a number of balance.
Mantra: You’ve earned it.

Don’t be surprised if the impossible seems to be becoming possible, and remember, that statement is a double edged sword. Moon sextile Pluto at 3:23 AM PST is a number of death and rebirth. This could lead to explosive outbursts but when it rains, it’s because you made it rain. Dive deeper into the depths of the mysteries of life and let them transform you.

Moon sextile Mars at 4:35 AM PST PST is a transit of bravery and leadership. You’ve got what’s coming our way as way. Mars joins the Moon in Libra where He will stay until 12/9/17. When Mars is in Libra, people may be indecisive out of the desire to be as fair as possible. The scales of balance may get a little wobbly. Learn how to juggle or get knocked on the head trying! And that knock may hurt since the Sun will also enter Scorpio today at 10:27 PM PST where he will stay until 11/21/17. When the Sun is in Scorpio watch out or get stung.
