Morning Star: Daily Astrology for July 6, 2014

I like the look of the next two days. I really do. And, that's a little funny because the Moon is in Scorpio. I don't know too many people who look forward to that. But, I do.

Plus, our Scorpio Moon makes some wonderful aspects as she cruises through the underworld.

Today, though, we wake up to Moon still in Libra creating a trine with Mercury in Gemini (6:53 AM). Mind and emotion are on the same page. This is a great aspect to use to get clarity around a situation. You can reason with yourself and think things through.

Just before lunchtime (11:31 AM EDT) the Moon meets Jupiter in Cancer via square. At this point, the Moon is Void until entering Scorpio at 3:34 PM. Squares cause tension. Tension between the Moon and Jupiter can result in blowing emotions out of proportion. Or, it could also bring a bit of optimism to an otherwise negative situation. In other words, it can help you feel better or worse depending on where you are. Use the trine with Moon/Mercury to bring things into perspective. Then the Moon square Jupiter could even bring some self-confidence.

I'm also looking forward to the next few days because Uranus is highlighted. Tomorrow, Venus in Gemini finds Uranus in Aries via sextile. Tuesday, the Sun finds Uranus via square. This energy is waxing in now. Venus/Uranus may offset some of the heaviness that people normally feel under a Scorpio Moon.

Then, when the Moon enters Sagittarius on Tuesday night, aside from re-linking the square between Venus and Neptune, she also makes some nice aspects. From here, it looks like a rather easy lead up to a rather powerful Full Moon in Capricorn on the 12th.

I feel like this incoming week is one where we can make a lot of progress in different areas with a little effort and direction. Formulate your plans today! Best day to have off of work (unless you are working in the Woo or in some type of artistic field) is Wednesday. That's a day to ditch the office and run off to the lake or beach if I've ever seen one.

Happy Sunday!
