The Sun conjoins with Jupiter on Monday. There is a feeling of expansion in the air. It is a time of optimism and freedom, especially with things associated with justice, balance, and peace. Keep your spirits up!
Slow and steady wins the race on Monday. The lunar Taurus energy asks us to slow down and take our time. Patience pays! Enjoy what you have instead of going out and trying to obtain more.
It’s too bad that Monday isn’t an official holiday because really it is a good day to stay home and sleep in. Progress at work is misdirected, and let’s remember that Mercury is still retrograde.
Tuesday is a day to see things to completion. Finish the job. Instead of letting loose ends continue to dangle. Take care of them. Stop procrastinating. Your determination is strong now. Do what you need to do and get the job done. Stop making excuses. It will be easier just to finish the project that is on the table.
There is a fun-loving, light-hearted spirit in the air on Monday. This is a day to be a kid again. It is a time to find your playful innocence and revel in it. Be dramatic.
The astrological backdrop changes on Monday morning. The rein of the Leo lion has ended. The jovial, big-hearted pulse of summer fun is over. Now the practical reality of the Sun in Virgo is setting in.
This is an exciting week. The Moon is waxing for the first four days, culminating with the Full Moon on Thursday August 18th. For these first days of the week, you will feel a crescendo of emotional energy.
The week is off to a challenging start. The Moon is void-of-course starting Monday at 1:41pm EST (10:41am PST), suggesting that for the remainder of the day, we’ll be feeling off-kilter and off-balance. Our beacon of intuition is not there for us at this start of the week, making us feel lost in the clouds.
Monday’s Moon in Cancer puts special emphasis on the Mother, and reminds us to be extra grateful for our Mother – not just the woman who brought us into this life, but also the Earth itself, the home which sustains us and supports us. Monday calls for us to appreciate our home and focus on domestic issues. Stay in and clean the house. There is no need to find excitement elsewhere tonight.
The Sun is in Leo now, so the atmosphere has changed. The background music is one of jovial fulfillment. It is a happy time; a time to hang out with children and remember that innocent goodness of being a kid again. It is a time to express yourself through joyful play.
