Today: January 7, 2011
Waxing moon in Aquarius; moon void-of-course 3:51 until 9:57 pm, when it moves into Pisces. Work late? Forget it. Doing things “not by the book” is advised for all, but particularly Aquarius, Libra, Gemini, Aries, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Cancer. If Capricorn, Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Virgo are feeling in “free-fall” mode, see if you can swing with it. Imposing order brings no one happiness today.
This week: June 13-19, 2013
"I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight/I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night/The roses are sighing a Moonlight Serenade.” _Glenn Miller Band (lyrics by Mitchell Parish). When the Greatest Generation was young, everyone in America would have instantly recognized this tune — the signature song of The Glenn Miller Orchestra. We are a far more wised-up generation, but something about the studied romance of World War II-era cultural artifacts is still compelling in the spring. This week, given that a boatload of planets are in defensive Cancer, pursue your passion (just remember that Mercury is retrograde, so you could ask for the opposite of what you want).
Thursday, June 13
Waxing moon in Leo. Working with kids, or doing a massive PR push, occupies the energies of Leo, Sagittarius, Aries, and Capricorn. But it’s also a day of “loud mouthism,” so Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius could take personal offense. (Let’s all be nice to them, okay?) Gemini, Cancer, Libra, and Pisces: cut through the chatter you hear — the random boasting — and find an opportunity to be generous to others. You’ll reap rewards later.
Friday, June 14
Waxing moon in Leo, moon void-of-course from 7:14 am until 12:26 pm when it moves into Virgo. “Big talkers” dominate the morning, and so-called “experts” could turn up in the afternoon. Gemini, Sagittarius, Taurus, and Pisces: don’t get stirred up by what you perceive is disrespect. Virgo: today through Tuesday will fill you with mixed impulses. Stay safe and don’t tell people, “you should be doing...”
Saturday, June 15
Waxing moon in Virgo. Fine-tuning projects or improving your health (going crazy buying supplements?) is an afternoon delight. Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, and Aquarius: be creative about “getting more,” whatever that means to you. Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces: don’t promise what you don’t want to deliver. Libra, Aries, Leo, and Scorpio: getting caught up in details comes easily. Just be aware if you’re being a noodge.
Sunday, June 16
First quarter moon in Virgo, moon void-of-course 5:26 pm until 9:19 pm when it moves into Libra. A turning point for events that began on or around June 8, and Virgo says “heal thyself.” Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo, and Libra: forget about the big picture — fine tune the details. Sagittarius, Gemini, Pisces, and Aries: irritation comes easily, but this isn’t your best time to take action. Scorpio, Cancer, Leo, and Aquarius: ditch the complainers — they’re all about wasting your time.
Monday, June 17
Waxing moon in Libra. A fine time to enjoy being in a relationship, or listening closely to your partner. Libra, Gemini, Aquarius, and Scorpio will have plenty of opinions, but focus could be a problem. Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, and Taurus: don’t force projects that aren’t working — this is your day or review, not completion. Sagittarius, Cancer, Pisces, and Leo: the social whirl or frantic activity keeps you on the go. But how much frenzy can you stand?
Tuesday, June 18
Waxing moon in Libra, moon void-of-course 11:56 pm until 2:38 am Wednesday. Tea for two, and two for tea — pairs rule when the moon is in Libra, and if you’re making the case for something, get a buddy. However, a case of “on the one hand/on the other hand” could beset Aries, Capricorn, Cancer, and Taurus. Libra, Aquarius, Gemini, and Scorpio could feel affectionately towards the quirky and unpredictable folks they know. Sagittarius, Leo, Virgo, and Pisces: stay on the fence.
Wednesday, June 19
Waxing moon in Scorpio. Everyone needs to have their opinion heard — which is fine, talk’s cheap. Scorpio moons mean we all cut to the chase, and problems may arise for Taurus, Leo, Aquarius, and Gemini who just don’t “get” what others mean. (Too much subtlety?). Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer, and Sagittarius: make a romantic move — now’s the time. Libra, Aries, Virgo, and Capricorn: It may be easy to fall head over teakettle for someone who’s a little cruel (“to be kind,” they say).

This horoscope traces the passage of the moon, not the sun. Simply read from day to day to watch the moon’s influence as it moves through the signs of the zodiac.
When the moon is in your sun sign (e.g., you’re a Taurus and the moon is in Taurus), you are beginning a new 28-day emotional cycle. Expect increased insight and emotional responses during this two day period. The moon changes sign approximately every 2.5 days, so it’s influence is intense, but ultimately brief. Now, when the moon is in the sign opposite your sun sign, expect some ups and downs. Here are the oppositions: Aries, Libra. Taurus, Scorpio. Gemini, Sagittarius. Cancer, Capricorn. Leo, Aquarius and Virgo, Pisces.
As the moon between signs, it will sometimes become "void of course," and make no major angles to planets. Consider this a null time and try to avoid decision-making or implementing decisions if you can. It is an excellent period for creativity, unexpected encounters, and quirky outcomes.
