Today the Moon enters Leo lifting us from the watery realms of the Cancer New Moon and firing up our energy somewhat. Given that we’re currently under the influence of two Grand Trines in Water this is not a bad thing!
At 05:05 GMT today the Sun entered Cancer marking the Solstice.This shift signals the beginning of a month during which we may well find ourselves full of imaginings, feelings and intuitions but somewhat lacking the motivation to make them a reality.
With the Moon now in Virgo, we have an opportunity to get to grips with the detail of things that have been overwhelming us of late and a connection between the Moon, Mars, Uranus and Pluto today helps us further with this task.
Today’s Taurus Moon helps us further ground the new energies that have been flooding in since the end of May. This is particularly good timing due to the current potential for distraction. That said, if you can afford to be distracted today then go with it.
This afternoon (15:55 GMT) the Moon enters Taurus for two and a half days. Generally speaking a Taurus Moon is seen as fairly stubborn and uncomfortable with change, but this particular Moon has a whole other quality to it thanks to an alliance with Mars, Saturn and Venus.
Today a Moon/Saturn conjunction in Scorpio could leave us feeling somewhat burdened, even overwhelmed. This is not the overwhelm of too much to do and not enough time, more like too much to fear and not enough faith.
This weekend the Moon travels through Virgo. Here she has a choice: to lose herself in the pursuit of perfection which renders everything lacking and forever in need of improvement, or to recognise and celebrate the perfection inherent in each moment, regardless of how it may appear on the surface.
