The Lunar overview of the week ahead

This week the Moon is gaining in light at the First Quarter phase, growing and filling with its reflective radiance up to the full moon (due on Monday 24th/Tuesday 25th).

As a overall guideline for this week, actively get involved in making something happen; be helpful and of service.

You know what it is you want to do, and making others aware of your ideas is strongly recommended.

This week is the end of summer season.

From our perspective in the UK, the Sun is now hovering over the equator far south.

It will gradually move even further south towards the tropic of Capricorn, and the shortest day of the year in three months time.

The harvest of Virgo will now be weighed and measured by the Scales of Libra.

As this balancing time of year begins, so will a sense of fair justice occur in certain areas of life and in world matters.

Monday(the day of the Moon)

Early on Monday the Moon is still in Sagittarius, encouraging optimistic reactions towards the day.

Then the Moon enters Capricorn at 11:07 am, which changes the mood to the practical; the grounded and sober can get more done with their time.

From around 1pm-3pm the Moon makes a mild aspect to Mars followed by a harmonious link to Uranus.

This will most likely be the trigger of the Mars/Uranus square(see below) that has been building up for several days.

Be aware and look out for it (especially in the news).

At around 4pm the moon conjuncts Saturn which will make for serious and limiting feelings. A committed and responsible response?

Just after 20:30 the Moon aligns with Jupiter, which can expand a deep feeling.

Monday closes with a nice Moon alignment to Venus just after 22:00, reassurance and a cuddle is always welcomed (and needed) when these two planets connect.

Tuesday(Mardi, the day of Mars)

From 3pm – 5pm the moon makes a useful alignment to Neptune, which will be a good time for imaginative visualization, with a practical application.

Tuesday night/ Wednesday morning the Moon connects to the Jupiter/Pluto alignment; feelings are positively powerful, although this happens in the middle of the night in London, and so is likely to be more consciously noticed and acted upon in other parts of the world!

Wednesday(Mercredi, the day of Mercury)

From around 12noon to 2:30pm the Moon is making a useful and flowing alignment to Mercury. This makes for a superb afternoon, as it is also the Day of Mercury.

This is followed by the Moon also harmoniously aligning to the Sun from 3pm to just after 5pm.

Be sure to make the most of this day, especially in communications, writing and speaking.

Thursday(Jeudi, the day of Jupiter)

Today the Moon is in Aquarius, tending to make reactions and responses friendly and cool.

The Moon aligns twice in the day with Venus, just after 9 am and again at 1:45 pm.

This makes the day hold potential for a general cheerful disposition and affectionate nature, particularly towards groups and associates.

Friday(Vendredi, the day of Venus)

Today the Moon is still in Aquarius, with its biggest alignment happening just after 5 pm when it connects to Jupiter.

This is likely to air any discontent and opportunities to express feelings will be obvious and done in a bigger-then-usual manner.

Saturday(the day of Saturn)

Just before 12:30 lunchtime the moon changes sign into Pisces, providing for a relaxing, drifting and calm weekend.

The afternoon from 3 pm to 6pm is good time to contemplate the practical moves forward you’ve made in the last few days, and dream about the potential for a what will happen next, as the Moon aligns with both Uranus and Saturn in Earth signs. A bit of gardening could help set the reflective mood.

Sunday(the day of the Sun)

On Sunday afternoon the chill and relax factor will be large as the Moon meets Neptune in Pisces. Let your highest idealism and spiritual vision take over for a few hours. Just remember to write down the inspiration!

(All times in UT Universal time. The word ‘perfects’ means ‘to bring to full development’)
