Feeling restless? The Moon says, “You’re a butterfly. A kite on a windy day. Soar, spin, let your thoughts roam. Start a couple new books. Visit friends. Enjoy the incredible lightness of being.” And just try to stop yourself from gossiping! That’s Hermes at work, the god behind this Gemini Moon: stirring up curiosity and light-hearted tricks, delighting in stories and finding the world of people endlessly fascinating. Hermes is the messenger, if you ask a question, be alert for the answer. Listen, and it will come. Given Gemini’s caprice, don’t be surprised if the weather suddenly shifts. Take advantage of the mutable atmosphere. Change your mind about something. See several sides of an issue you’ve been stuck on. If your shoulders are tense, consider dropping a few responsibilities. Then make a peace offering to your lungs and jittery nerves. Take slow, deep breaths while falling asleep. Imagine bad habits falling away.

Moon in Aries

Aug 30, 2015 to Sep 2, 2015

 

The weatherman may say rain, but expect some Sun to shoot through the clouds. Aries Moon draws fire into the atmosphere, stimulating life force and vitality. You’re alive, filled with your own thoughts, centered into the vision before your own two eyes. It’s all about you today. Trouble is, everyone else is in the same place. Imagine a playing field with plenty of loose cannons. That’s Aries Moon. Insensitive remarks can land at missile speed and detonate into conflicts. The good news is they’ll end just as quickly. This Moon goes against teamwork, but it’s auspicious for personal challenges. Compete against your own limits. What’s that mountain you’ve been wanting to climb? Be daring. Headaches, eyestrain or sinus difficulty imply troubling feelings have collected inside your head. Meet whatever you’ve been avoiding head-on.

Moon in Capricorn

Aug 24, 2015 to Aug 26, 2015

 

Maybe you noticed. Things have gotten more serious with the Moon in Capricorn. No-nonsense suits around the office. Discussions about rules, disciplines, hard work and respect. Virtues that make employees squirm and bosses feel lonely. Structure-everybody hates it until something unruly occurs. Physics says a vast and wild emptiness dances between the molecules in a chair. But we don’t fall in due to the structuring thought in wood, respecting our need for a solid place to sit. That’s Capricorn in your life, structures that support. Its energy inspires your achievements and fears (funny how both can be motivating). Face a fear today. Be the authority in something. Devise a business plan. Recognize that diligence is nothing more than keeping what you want in mind. Strategize with a wise old one. And do something especially nice this Moontime for your skin, bones or knees.

Your Daily Planet Tracker for August 17th: Mercury in Virgo, Now Until Aug 27, 2015

Mercury in Virgo

Now Until Aug 27, 2015

 

Mercury, the planet of communication, has two home signs: Gemini and Virgo. Gemini represents the objective airy side of thought, while Virgo is the practical, earthy side. Mercury in Virgo, then, is a time when thought is most likely to be used with efficiency and conversation grounded in reality.

A planet is considered to be strong when in its home sign, one which it is said to rule. This helps direct and refine its energies to higher levels of purity and power. Mercury in Virgo is, therefore, a strong period in which to analyze and criticize with great precision. Taken to its extremes, however, this can become a narrowness of thought that kills imagination and abstraction. Mercury in Virgo often works best after original ideas are born in rough form that can then be polished and refined.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo usually have very sharp minds that readily comprehend complex patterns and fine details. Success, though, comes when this narrow view is balanced with awareness of the big picture and higher orders of reality. The best thinkers are able to move comfortably among various perspectives to give the widest understanding possible.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo include the highly regarded basketball coach Phil Jackson, law professor Alan Dershowitz, Lyndon Johnson, Yasser Arafat, writers H.P. Lovecraft and Truman Capote, astronaut Neil Armstrong, chef Julia Child and spiritual teacher Sri Aurobindo.

The world of music offers composers Claude Debussy and George Gershwin, and singers Bobby Short, Whitney Houston and Madonna. Acting Mercury in Virgos include Dustin Hoffman, Peter O’Toole, Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman, Melanie Griffith, Steve Martin, Michael Douglas, Chevy Chase, Lucille Ball and Mae West.

Moon in Cancer

Jul 13, 2015 to Jul 16, 2015

You might be a little sensitive during this Moon. Unfortunately, everyone else is too. If you find yourself in deep water now, look to your intuition to get you out. The real issues are often hidden on Cancer Moon days, or dealt with sideways. People tend to circle the emotional wagons, reach for their antacids, and privately nurse their wounds. The collective unconscious is four years old and wants its mommy. Go ahead, seek nurture today. It’s like that children’s story where the baby bird, tumbled from its nest, quizzes all comers, “Are you my mother?” Only you’re looking for the World Mother. You’ll find her in a cozy place where you feel safe and loved; in a cup of tea, a mid-day retreat to your bed or a smile from a friend. Whether or not you have issues, it’s a good Moontime for sharpening your emotional intelligence. Distinguish foods that nourish (both real and symbolic) from those that bring heartburn.

On a Pisces Moon, think foot massage. Soak your soles in a calming lavender bath. Feet are ruled by Pisces; maybe it’s the way they cushion against the hard ground. Let yourself drift and dream today. Forget that pressured list in your day planner; don’t bother with a watch. You’ll accomplish more by letting your intuition guide you from this to that. Mood enhancers are films, music and poetry. But watch the spaced-out bag boy at the supermarket; he’s likely to leave your ice cream on the checkout stand. Steer clear of whiners and martyrs. There’s moisture in the air-fog, mist, tears. Better to convert self-pity or sentimentality into a broader compassion for the world. And if you’ve let your meditation practice lapse, this is a great Moon to return. Find the window that opens to your one-ness with all.

Oddballs rule with Aquarius Moon. You zig, they zag. “I love humanity,” somebody once said, “it’s people I can’t stand.” As much as we want the world to be just like us (or some days just to like us), we keep bumping against those different ones. Aquarius says, “Cool! Nothing inspires genius more than discomfort and diversity. So many things you’ll touch today-a piece of paper, a fuzzy slipper, a computer keyboard-came from an oddball mind, able to view the same old thing in a different way. There’s a restless, erratic quality in the air made for new awarenesses. Revolutionize something. Become somebody else’s oddball. The Moon says shelve your sensitivity and welcome unexpected events. Celebrate your interconnectedness with everyone you meet. Leg cramps, varicose veins or poor circulation could be signs that you’ve been standing still too long.

Moon in Sagittarius

Jun 28, 2015 to Jul 1, 2015

Think of a horse running free. An archer’s eye trained on a distant target. A monk’s heart and mind expanding to the heavens. The Moon encourages you to reach beyond a limit today. Pick one thing (however small) that you can do in the next hour to renew your sense of adventure and love for the world. The energy of Sagittarius is expansive, free, optimistic, generous, philosophical and visionary. Quick-jot down five things you’re grateful for. Next, write down your current salary and add a couple zeros. And that fabulous thing you haven’t accomplished yet? See yourself having done it. In this expansive frame of mind, hug a know-it-all. Forgive anyone who sticks their foot in their mouth. But avoid the mall, you’ll overspend. In body matters, take a loofa to your cellulite thighs. If you go to the gym this Moontime, be cautious of upper leg strain.

Saturn in Scorpio

Now Until Sept 17, 2015

Saturn is the last planet visible to the naked eye. For millennia, it represented the limits of the solar system and came to symbolize time, structure and order. Saturn takes about 29 years to orbit the Sun, spending about two and a half years in each sign of the zodiac.

Saturn is the planet that says “no” but means “yes.” The no comes from Saturn showing us what isn’t working, sometimes in the form of frustrating blockages or delays. But these help us see where we need to put in effort to make concrete changes. Saturn says “yes” as the planet of crystallization that brings energy into matter. Saturn’s presence in a sign of the zodiac shows us where we are likely to meet limits and how to construct something useful.

Serious Saturn in survivalist Scorpio forces us to face the bottom line. Life and death, sex, power and our economic well being can be pushed to the limits during this two-year transit. Concentrating our efforts where they are most needed may require eliminating ideas, activities, objects or individuals that distract us from these essential tasks.

Take account of your desires, even the inappropriate ones. Knowing what you want helps you become a better negotiator in relationships. Being nice is, well, nice but doesn’t touch the depth of emotion associated with Scorpio. Partnerships grow when they are rooted in honesty, especially with ourselves. We can compromise in pursuit of our desires but if we don’t even know what they are, all we’re left with are manipulation and chance.

Getting the most out of our resources is another expression of Saturn in Scorpio. Scarcity could be a collective problem but, ideally, will lead to more efficient systems of production and distribution. Cleaning up toxins in the environment and within our bodies and minds are other healthy expressions of this transit.

How money is handled, especially involving insurance and debt, grows in importance with Saturn in Scorpio. There may be even more abuses in the financial world but that could be what it takes to make some significant reforms. Borrowing for well-defined purposes and with a realistic repayment schedule is an appropriate way to use this cycle.

Sexual repression is a dark side of Saturn in Scorpio. The AIDS epidemic was at a very high level in the early 80s, the last time this transit occurred. Responsiblity for erotic inclinations doesn’t mean that they should be suppressed but rather that we deepen our understanding of them. Tantra, a form of sacred sexuality, teaches us about intimacy that is not possible when we deny this essential part of ourselves.
