This week kicks off with an enthusiastic Gemini Moon and the potential for you to be in high performance mode! By Tuesday night/Wednesday morning however it will be important to redirect your energies from outward expression to a more inward, nurturing focus. Take time for yourself and nurture your own personal needs, whether they be emotional, physical, mental and/or spiritual. Creative inspiration has the potential to carry you through the latter half of the week with the Moon transiting both Cancer and Leo. Passion, playfulness and artistic expression are all in order, however Saturday night’s Quarter Moon reminds you not to indulge your inner child so much so that you lose yourself.
🌙 This week’s Lunar Astrovibes are broken out day-by-day below!
The Moon’s energy influences our emotions, our mood and often our unconscious responses. How you experience the Moon’s energy is also influenced by the other elements in your individual birth chart – a personal reading will shed light on these influences.
Monday & Tuesday, Moon in Gemini – this energy is BUSY, energetic/multi-tasking, social, charming, spontaneous, curious, resourceful and quick-witted. Watch out however Gemini’s shadow expressions, which have the greatest potential to be expressed Tuesday afternoon and evening; these are anxiety, feeling scattered and spreading yourself too thin, telling ‘white lies’ to get what you want and/or indecisiveness. The second half of Tuesday will be a very good time for grounding and self-care.
Wednesday & Thursday, Moon in Cancer – sensitive, intuitive, nurturing and generous. Cautions; moodiness, fearfulness and forgetting to nurture your personal needs first. Spending time on your own can help you reset and get some much needed perspective. Personal, home-focused or creative pursuits are also well-supported during this time.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday until noon, Moon in Leo (and quarter Moon on Saturday night) – Leo energy is creative, expressive, big-hearted, fun-loving, generous and passionate. With the Quarter Moon on Saturday, these Leo vibes can present a challenge that calls you to step into your highest expressions of personal integrity. You may be triggered by anger or impatience, which draw attention to pride, stubbornness or willfulness. Watch out for hot-headed over-reactions or trying to force a specific outcome – instead leave space for flexibility and openness to the unknown. With the confused or unfocused vibes of the Moon being void-of-course Sunday morning, Mother’s day has the potential to get off to a disorganized start, although this clears up by midday.
Sunday afternoon, Moon in Virgo – organized, efficient and goal-oriented but possibly bringing a harsh judgmental tone towards oneself and/or others. Remember to soften your expectations. Happy Mother’s Day!
🌸 Happy MOON Day and have a great week! 🌸
