It’s looking to be a busy week! We kick off our Monday morning with the Moon waxing in fiery Leo, giving us an extra-fresh start this week as we come out of the relatively mellow energy of the New Moon in Cancer, which kicked off our weekend on Friday night. Mercury will be making many connections throughout the week as well, indicating that time will likely fly by us rather quickly and our minds will be busy with lots of planning, strategizing and office chatter. Mid-week things heat up a bit with Mercury coming into a dynamic conjunction with Mars, the planet of action and war, followed by an opposition to Pluto, the planet of intensity, death and rebirth. At the very least, your work week should be anything but boring ;)
The New Moon is the time each month when the Sun and Moon come into alignment in an exact conjunction. This unification of the two luminaries marks a point in time in which our subjective experience merges with our physical reality, producing an energy ripe for intention setting and manifestation. On Friday night, the New Moon in Cancer will give us a chance for a fresh start and new beginnings as we reflect upon our own personal comfort zones.
Once, sometimes twice, each year the Full Moon in Sagittarius comes around to shine light on the bigger picture and to help us to gain greater perspective on the events of our lives. It shows us that everything we create in this world is the sum of all of its parts, and it helps to refresh our memory as to why we do the things we do. The Full Moon in Sagittarius shows us exactly how our daily efforts and communications collaborate to help us to achieve our most optimistic hopes and dreams.
