Have you been feeling it? For the past couple of days, the Capricorn sun and the building full moon in Cancer have been amped up by Uranus, Jupiter, and Pluto. Uranus produces stimulus and excitement; Jupiter increases, spreads, and travels; Pluto adds impact. Either you’ve met with timely opportunity or you’ve faced a tough cut to the chase. Perhaps you’ve experienced a mix of both.
Mostly past peak by the time you and I are up and at ’em, Thursday’s full moon in emotional Cancer puts all matters to do with home, real estate, roots, family, parents/parenting, protection, and self-preservation to the forefront. National security and safety are on the front burner too.
All get-it-under-better-control initiatives and emancipation bids are highly favoured. The full moon assists (or forces) us to offload anything that’s been encumbering or prohibiting.
Also on Thursday, Venus in Pisces aligns with Neptune. It is a combination that is ideal for dreaming and doing. Seek romance, an escape, creative or spiritual replenishment, or chase the money down. Don’t dwell on loss; hope, faith, and inspiration are the keys to your salvation. This full-of-promise combination can turn the potential into a reality. The stars are fruitful through Saturday. Sunday, take time out to replenish yourself. Monday holds ups and downs. Wednesday is another trigger or punch-through-it day, but all’s well that ends well.
March 20 – April 19
Capping off an intense few days, Mercury’s regain of Capricorn on full-moon Thursday is results-generating. Venus/Neptune calls for you to relinquish, surrender, allow, accept, and open up. Both bring the reality into better focus and/or make the potential real. They can also touch heart, soul, or wallet in some rich way. Thursday evening through Saturday, make the most of it; reward yourself.
April 20 – May 20
A friend or sibling can be a strong support system. Then again, perhaps the shoe is on the other foot. Thursday’s full moon can break down resistance, push you past an important hurdle, end a wait or term, or deliver results. A talk clears up plenty. Once it’s taken care of, it’s all good. Even so, more is on brew. Tension continues through Wednesday/Thursday.
May 21 – June 21
Thursday can see you get away with more for less. Someone in charge can be in a sympathetic, pliable, or gifting mood. Mind you, not everyone is ready to give you a break. You may have to work on them, or you may be forced to make a significant concession. Even so, Thursday night through Sunday is for cashing in. Monday requires extra effort.
June 21 – July 22
The full moon has already beaten itself to the punch during the past few days. The stars smooth it out Thursday afternoon through Sunday. To the plus, Venus/Neptune is a creative, romantic, soulful, and gifting combination. They mark a good time for a vacation, a new marketing venture, or a location move. Monday puts you to work. Tuesday/Wednesday, a compromise is called for.
July 22 – August 22
As of Thursday evening, you can move on to better things. While Mercury, freshly into Capricorn, will put more emphasis on work and the serious stuff for the next couple of weeks, Venus/Neptune is in the mood for movies, music, and romance—or whatever else turns your crank! The transiting Leo moon brightens you and your prospects through Saturday. Sunday, let it slide.
August 22 – September 22
You can lighten up, unwind, and let it go as of Thursday night. Venus/Neptune makes for a wonderful few days for romance, an escape, creative immersion, a spiritual retreat, or a relaxation top-up. Mercury freshly into Capricorn helps you gain better control and feel more secure about plans, commitments, communications, and involvements. Sunday, write it off. Monday through Wednesday are a mixed bag.
September 22 – October 23
It’s been a huge week! Whether you’ve taken a risk and made it happen or it has been thrust upon you, as of full-moon Thursday, you’re mostly over big stuff and well on your way. Travel, relocation, or a new home, family, or career trajectory is well timed. Enjoy the weekend. A full-tilt week lies ahead. Monday, get to work.
October 23 – November 21
It’s been an exceptional week for travel, romance, work, and putting yourself out there. Thursday through Saturday signs you up for reward and special attention. Venus/Neptune are in beautiful shape; express what’s in your heart and soul. Sunday, minimize expectations; take it as it comes. The week ahead adds sidetracks, extras, and stress. Striking a balance takes work and diplomacy.
November 21 – December 21
This full-moon week has been a major one for figuring it out, setting the record straight, moving past the past, and hitting fast-forward. A family member or lover has likely tugged extra hard on the heartstrings, too. Thursday through Saturday puts you on a major upswing and/or delivers reward. Monday onward, it’s one thing after another.
December 21 – January 19
Have you felt hit from all sides? Whether it’s been hard or great, this full-moon week has pulled out all the stops. It’s an ideal time to push forth with a big plan or major move. A new career, home, relationship, or material trajectory—don’t see it as a risk; see it as ripe and timely opportunity.
January 20 – February 18
You’ll get a better handle on it now that Mercury has regained Capricorn and the peak of the full-moon week has been surpassed. The Leo moon sets the weekend on a positive upswing. Communications, travel, and activities in general flow well. Sunday, if you don’t have to, don’t. Work through it Monday. Tuesday/Wednesday, carry on.
February 18 – March 20
The full-moon from Thursday through Saturday nets a major payoff for this week’s perseverance. Either you have accomplished what you set out to do or the way is now cleared to move on to better things. Potentials are especially ripe. Venus/Neptune is spiritually replenishing. The moment is auspicious for creative undertakings, fresh starts, fame, money, and romance.
