This weekend we’re still feeling the energy from Thursday’s Solar Eclipse in the intuitive sign of Cancer along with the double grand trine energy in the Earth and Water signs—heightening our otherworldly perceptions and providing an opportunity to take our visions and creativity and translate it into something grounded and real.
Friday (7/13): Today Venus in the pragmatic and service-oriented sign of Virgo makes a harmonious trine with retrograde Saturn in Capricorn, brining a continuation of the trine energy that was initiated when Venus came into trine with unpredictable Uranus at the start of the week. This aspect highlights the Saturn/Uranus trine energy, which is HIGHLY active all of August and September, bringing us an opportunity to create solid, lasting change by building off the lessons of the past while looking forward toward the future. Venus trine Saturn brings greater stability and longevity to financial matters and relationships initiated throughout this time, and can help to us deepen our commitment in our current relationships as well.
The Moon today moves into the fiery and playful sign of Leo at 10:31am MST, where it will remain for the next 2.5 days. The Moon will square Uranus early this afternoon bringing unexpected circumstances that may shake us out of our emotional comfort zones. The Moon will oppose Mars late tonight, making some of us a bit more short-tempered than normal.
Saturday (7/14): No major planetary aspects. The Moon will square Jupiter in Scorpio, expanding on our emotions and making us a bit more dramatic in our emotional expression, especially in the attention-seeking sign of Leo! The Moon will conjunct Mercury later in the evening before going Void-of-Course at 4:11pm MST, making this evening a good time for planning, organizing, and mundane communications.
Sunday (7/15): The Moon moves into the practical and grounded sign of Virgo at 10:31am MST.
In Virgo, the moon expresses itself with compassion and humility. There is an opportunity during this time to show up in selfless service of others. People may find themselves busier than normal, with endless to-do lists. Organizing, planning, and budgeting are particularly favorable activities. There is a tendency to over-think and over-analyze feelings, emotions, and interactions. People become more prone to self-criticism and judgment, leading to nervousness and anxiety. There is also a danger of becoming over-critical and judgmental of others. Exercise caution in expressing your feelings, as your words may come across more cold and harsh than you intend, and people are more easily affected by the criticisms of others. Taking care of your health, especially when it comes to diet and nutrition, is favored at this time.
The Moon will make positive aspects to Uranus and Saturn, along with a conjunction with Venus today, highlighting the Grand Earth Trine energy that has been so prevalent throughout the week.
Have a beautiful weekend! Be sure to check back on Sunday for the weekday forecast! :)
