Dreams and unexpected ideas float and spark through our week, dousing us with excitement, hope, and maybe a little tension and angst along the way. Revelations of what our future holds in its ethereal hands may spring up out of nowhere, inspiring us to make it all happen. The road ahead, however, requires hard work, determination, and full recognition that nothing good comes easy, so while you might be immersed in dreamy dream worlds with hibbles and gibbles of giddiness, don’t forget the necessities of growing the means to harvest those dreams.

Venus ingresses Cancer
Today’s ingress of Venus into Cancer bathes us in the nurturing waters of comfort, security, and compassion. Our love lives relish this transition into deeper connection and emotional support. We can feel the influence of Cancer’s emotional security thanking us for paying more attention to our financial situation and our physical beauty. Though this ingress is affected by a minor aspect with Pluto, which can challenge our comfort with a degree of limitation or detachment, there is potential for a transformative pull in the direction of elevating our consciousness to embrace the compassion of Venus’s joy in Cancer.

Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces
Moon in Sagittarius trine Jupiter in Aries
Moon in Capricorn opposite Venus in Cancer
Our dreams to travel to distant lands and look even further into our future for life-changing experiences and enlightening awakenings swarm through our conceivably not-so-present minds today. Due to Moon’s back-to-back aspects on the degree of the Galactic Center (27° Sagittarius), these faraway thoughts and dreams can carry us away to that special place we hope to be someday.
As Moon ingresses Capricorn and opposes Venus late in the evening, we land back in the present and grapple with the work needed to get us closer to those dreams. Fortunately, those dreams are attainable, and if we felt the inspiration and excitement for what our future holds, the hard work and determination to achieve them won’t feel so daunting and painful.

Moon in Capricorn sextile Saturn in Pisces
Moon in Capricorn trine Mercury in Taurus
Sun conjunct Uranus in Taurus
Our work brains are turned on this morning as we wake to the Moon-Saturn sextile, driving us forward and reminding us that achieving what we need to embrace the rewards of our dreams is a worthy journey, despite the inevitable struggles and challenges along the way. This is how our professional lives can synchronize with our hopes and dreams.
We may also be reminded of the reflections and reconsiderations that have been ongoing for the past two weeks or more while Mercury has been retrograde. Reflections about our overall financial picture and what level of sustainability is necessary to manifest our end game.
As Sun meets Uranus, we might feel the jittery jitters of physical and mental excitement charging and coursing through our bodies and minds, sparking our poetic genius awake to ideas, adventures, or professional directions we had never thought of or considered before. Expecting the unexpected is a typical catch phrase for communions such as these.

Moon in Capricorn trine Uranus and Sun in Taurus
Moon in Capricorn opposite Mars in Cancer
Reiterating Tuesday’s sermon of working hard to reach our dreams surfaces again today, but this time we can integrate and emotionally process the possibly strange new ideas or directions that appeared out of nowhere. Do not be surprised when what has been conditioned into our psyches for so long gets launched into outer space and is replaced by perspectives unwittingly placed in our prefrontal cortexes. Go with it, add some personal flair, and strut like you know what you’re doing.
The afternoon Moon-Mars opposition might agitate the trickling waters of our emotions, perhaps stirring up sticky feelings of not getting our way as much as we would like. There may be some angry little gremlins making a stink in the bowels of our emotional bodies, so it would be good to avoid conflict by not addressing matters with others who you know share differing opinions than you do.

Moon in Aquarius square Mercury in Taurus
Though many planets are approaching aspects and transitions today, the only exact aspect is Moon’s square to retrograde Mercury. This is imbued with colors that challenge us to see changes we should be making in our lives. Though this may unhinge conversations or our thought processes, there is a sacred element to it that involves the tension of seeing new ideas and elevated perspectives not familiar to us creating friction with our stubborn behaviors and familiar territories. The breakthroughs are available to us if we can wrestle with that tension to birth diamonds of willingness to raise our bars higher.

Third Quarter Moon in Aquarius
Mercury in Taurus sextile Saturn in Pisces
Mercury in Taurus sextile Venus in Cancer
The third quarter Moon in Aquarius is colored by a very active and workable relationship between Mercury, Venus, and Saturn today. The inspiration for new and exciting directions is charged with a zest and fervor that can motivate us to put all the myriad pieces of our visionary puzzle together in time for bed. We can feel quite jazzed and jammy today to bring all we have been examining deeply in the stubborn soils of our garden of life together to sort out where to begin this journey toward our greatest future possible. Linking, synchronizing, and backing up the data accumulated over the past three weeks or more will feel good if we stick to it and don’t give up.

Moon conjunct Saturn in Pisces
Moon in Pisces trine Venus in Cancer
Saturday mornings can be sweet, sleeping in, going to the farmers market, eating a donut or two. And this Saturday should be no exception. The timekeepers of our galaxy, Moon and Saturn, unite in Pisces to swirl our morning into unforeseeable and unclockified directions. Where we could find ourselves throughout the day is anyone’s guess, but planning, working, and organizing likely won’t be the three chords strummed on today’s guitar. This is a wonderful day to go for a drive, go for a swim, dream about your future with a loved one, and boil it all down into a tasty romantic dinner at your favorite restaurant. Exciting things are brewing for next week, so kick back and enjoy your luscious etheric weekend!
As the picture of our future begins to sharpen, the prickles and brambles that cross our paths along the way shouldn’t feel so unfortunate. The weeks ahead promise action akin to bursting out of the turnstiles of lethargy and stubborn foibles. For now, we are dissecting the changing winds in our sails and listening to what it is saying. Our reconsiderations, re-examinations, and reflections are beginning to brush up against our revelations and rejoicing for what is shaping up to be a promising road ahead.
