This weekend starts off a bit stressful and scattered with the first quarter Moon in Gemini making difficult aspects all around. As we move into the end of this weekend, the combination of Mercury conjunct Neptune and Venus square Mars helps us to feel more romantic, passionate, creative and idealistic, all the while increasing the likelihood for misunderstandings and disputes. Overall, the energy this weekend feels confusing, yet productive, and allows us the opportunity to take action in our relationships and responsibilities wherever it’s needed most.
This year, on the first day of 2018 we will experience the most potent Supermoon of the year. At 7:24pm MST, the Moon will reach its fullest point in its home sign of Cancer— ringing in the New Year with an energy that is fraught with intense emotional experience. This is a great day to spend time doing things that feel most comfortable, taking care of the home, property and family. This energy is also great for nurturing close relationships with family, friends, and loved ones. Today may bring about an emotional catharsis for some, and if this is the case it’s advisable for us all to seek out support from the people in our lives who help us to feel safe and cared for. The Full Moon in Capricorn brings us back into balance after focusing on all of the hard work and responsibility the overtly-Saturnian energy of this month has been centered around thus far.
On October 10th, Jupiter moves from the balanced and harmonious sign of Libra into the intense, passionate, and deeply psychic sign of Scorpio, where it will remain until November 8th, 2018. Throughout the course of this transit, deep secrets will be expanded on and brought out into the open and difficult Truths that have been suppressed and repressed will be revealed. On an interpersonal level, this transit brings intense and passionate connections that reach far beyond the surface of the mundane. In Scorpio, Jupiter desires to get to the core nature of everything it touches, shining the spotlight on all things dark, hidden and taboo.
