Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report

The lovely moon is in Libra today. Libra loves to relate to others but tends to intellectualize emotions. Libra thinks about how he feels instead of simply feeling it.

The first aspect today is a square from the moon to Pluto in Capricorn at 1:36 PM EDT. This aspect may have us obsessing over our relationships a bit today, thinking things like “Why hasn’t he/she called/texted yet today?” Whether we are in a relationship or not this aspect does give us some feelings of frustration. There are deeper things happening that we just can’t put our finger on to sort them out. Kind of like background noise that grates on your nerves.

Shortly after this Mercury makes a trine to Saturn at 1:51 PM EDT. This aspect is excellent for processing our thoughts but with Mercury in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio the thoughts we think are focused on deeper emotional issues. We can make a plan on how to cope with things we have have struggled with in the past.

The brilliant sun makes an ingress into Leo at 11:30 PM EDT tonight. Goodbye Cancer and Hello Leo! This is a shift that takes us into a more social scene … we want to get out and enjoy the rest of our summer by being active instead of lazing it away in our backyard hammock. Leo is bold, warm and if in a healthy state has a sense of humor so make sure you take some time to enjoy yourself this month!

A good stone to work with today is labradorite which assists us in overcoming resistance to advance to the next cycle of growth. It is also helps us to recognize and achieve our destiny. It is also related to the sign of Leo to help welcome the ingress of the sun into Leo today.

A good essential oil for today is basil which helps us to focus and get our work completed, whether that be real world work or self-work. It simultaneously uplifts us while allowing us to concentrate on the task at hand.

The first vibration we have is with the moon square to Mars. This vibration peaks at 12:04AM EST. This moon/Mars combination has us feeling a bit impatient or impulsive. Keep your patience near during this time. Kindly remind yourself that in this time you may need to practice kindness coupled with patience.
Smoky Quartz is a great gemstone to work with today. It would help you remain calm and still keep your energy going.

Next we have the moon opposite Uranus; this energy can be somewhat inspirational and exciting. This energy peaks at 3:02AM EST and stays with us all day. Expect some high vibrations for the day. If you channel this energy properly, you can feel inspirational and vivid. On the other side of the coin; if you feel agitated or annoyed, go spend that energy doing something active and focus your energy. 
It would be excellent to hold onto some Aquamarine in this time. Aquamarine will give you clarity for the energy that this aspect has in it for you without weighing you down.

The planet Mercury then slips into the sign of Leo, where Mercury hangs until August 7. This has Mercury the planet of our communication all on fire and ready to express itself in dramatic and bold ways. You may notice your phone ringing a lot and social networks busy too. Do something bold with yourself, write a blog, book, article or something that you can show off to others. 
Working with Red Jasper during the transit of Mercury in Leo will help you connect deeper to this energy.

Then we have the energy pattern of the moon sextile Jupiter. This energy peaks at 2:12PM EST. Jupiter and the moon has us feeling cheerful and expansive. Try to reach outside of the box and see what other inspiring things you can tap into during this time.
Botswana Agate or any type of Agate would be great to hold on to or wear during this time.

There is a short Void of Course moon from 2:12PM EST until when the moon moves into the sign of Scorpio at 10:07PM EST. During this Void of Course moon, you might want to take a nap, go for a stroll in a park and meditate, do some yoga or spend some time doing not much of anything. This is a nice time to chill the emotions and not push anything that you feel a resistance to. Sometimes one may notice that they are trying to achieve something during a VOC moon. It can just seems like the universe is working against you. – If this is the case, take a break and come back to it after the moon shifts gears.

The moon then ingresses into the sign of Scorpio where she hangs until Sunday morning. She makes this transition at 10:07PM EST. When the moon is in Scorpio, we feel all our emotions. We feel them with all the depth of our being. This energy shines on that is hidden within. Some people have a difficult time with the moon in Scorpio. If you have been metaphorically cleaning out the closet of what is hidden inside there. – Then it shouldn’t be all that bad! 
You might like holding on to some Black Tourmaline during the Scorpio moon. As Black Tourmaline will help you to remain grounded if you feel uncentered with emotions coming forward.

In the afternoon the sun and Mercury both in the sign of Leo conjunct one another. This energy has us feeling the power of our communication on a personal level. Whenever the sun is involved it means the vibration becomes personal. This will have you wanting to express yourself and be heard. As we mentioned above, start writing that book you always wanted to write and put your words out there.
Working with Brecciated Jasper during this transit will also help you ground your energies and articulate yourself.

We get grooving with a vibration between the moon sextile Venus in the evening time. This is a harmonious wave that begins peaks at 11:36PM EST today. This vibration is peaceful and cheerful; the afternoon and evening should be a nice day for most of us. Enjoy the sweet energies that we are given and if you feel like it, do some self pampering.
You may want to wear your Rose Quartz or hold onto some Rhodochrosite to bask in the loving vibration we are given today.

The moon is in Scorpio today where she is not at all comfortable. The moon is in “fall” in the sign of Scorpio which means it is at it’s least comfortable … and we may
be moody or have to deal with some unwelcome feelings.

The first aspect today is a square from the sun to the moon at 12:04 AM EDT. This marks the quarter moon which my husband always refers to a “half-moon”. I always correct him and tell him “No, it’s a quarter moon”. We argue about this over and over again which basically exemplifies the nature of a sun-moon square. We clash. We think we are right. Of course I am right …

Shortly after this the moon makes a square to Mercury at 1:05 AM. This means both our thoughts and emotions are stuck and we cannot get them to be harmonious. Our mind says one thing but our heart says another.

The last aspect of the day is a trine from the moon to Neptune at 4:40 PM. This is a nice smooth aspect to ease some of the tension from the day but it can’t really make up for the gnashing-of-teeth feeling for the day. One of the things ruled by Neptune is the movies so it would be a good night to watch a movie, maybe a drama to fit into the tension.

A good stone to work with today is amethyst which helps to ease tension.

A good essential oil for today is jasmine which aids in relaxation. Jasmine also carries a mystery which the Scorpio moon should find enticing.

Venus turns Retrograde this morning, where she stays until September 6. Venus goes into her Retrograde phase once a year. As Venus is taking this turn into retrograde. She is helping us turn the love that we have for all those things, people, etc around us – internally. When a planet goes retrograde it is time to think about things inside ourselves. To see how that particular energy affect you. With Venus it is love.
So think of ways to love yourself more, open your heart up to yourself. Sometimes many of us are so concerned with helping others that we forget about ourselves. Learn to make it the other way around. This reminds me of when you are flying in an airplane and the flight attendant says: “If the masks fall, put yours on first – then help others.” If you are not emotionally stable and healthy then how can you expect to do a good job helping others?

Once you have been taking time to love yourself and bring an awareness to your needs. You can then extend that to others, any sort of relationship be it romantic, family, friends etc. Love them all, and bring your newly found whole self to the table to meet them too!

This is a beautiful time to also do some art work. That painting you have always wanted to make, redecorating a room you have been wanting to redecorate – get grooving! This time is a great time to make your surroundings homier and more beautiful to you. So enjoy some of that under this spell of Venus Retrograde.

The Moon still in Scorpio for the whole day has those emotions running high still. Take some time to just be OK with whatever is on your plate. The Scorpio moon can be intense, so if you feel that way, take a step back and breathe before moving forward again.

Mars and Uranus make a square early in the morning that will last throughout the day. This energy can have us feeling a bit tense or even accidental, so be extra careful under this time that you don’t get into an accident.

Traveling along the afternoon the moon makes a harmonious trine to Mars. This energy peaks at 2:49PM EDT today. This energy has us feeling loads of vigor. We might consider going for a run, or swim or whatever it is that we like to do with ourselves. Just burn some of that energy off this morning. If it is not physical energy you wish to burn off; you may notice yourself feeling quite optimistic and progressive.

This energy brings some fiery energy to the day. You may want to work with some Carnelian or another Agate at this time to help you channel your own personal energy.

Lavender is a great essential oil to work with today to open your heart chakra and bring soothing energy to all that is out there.

The moon starts the day in Scorpio and she will be quite happy to leave this sign today! The moon in Scorpio is unhappy but we are lucky because the energy will be shifting today!

At 1:55 AM EDT the moon squares Jupiter which is usually an aspect of overindulgence. Today this aspect feels greedy to me so we may feel like hoarding or keeping everything to ourselves.

Void-of-course moon begins at 5:14 AM when the moon conjoins Saturn. This is a difficult aspect and we do feel a bit down and a bit stuck until the moon moves into the next sign. Thankfully this sign change is only a few hours away.

Lady moon cheers up when she enters Sagittarius at 8:24 AM. The mood lightens. We feel more adventurous. But she is approaching a square to Venus and may be feeling a bit like a diva after her early morning difficulties. She squares Venus at 9:48 AM and the tension is over. We had our diva moment and now we feel a little bit freer to be ourselves.

At 2:55 PM the moon makes an harmonious trine to the sun which smooths out the energy of the day. We feel good. We feel in sync. There is a spring in our step.

At 10:56 PM the moon makes a trine to Mercury, who rules thoughts and communication. Our thoughts (Mercury) and feelings (moon) and in accord.

A good stone to work with today is calcite which helps to activate the chakras. You can choose a color of calcite to focus on a specific chakra, if you like. For example, honey calcite for 3rd chakra or green calcite for 4th chakra. White calcite can help the energy flow all around.

A good essential oil for today is petitgrain which restores balance and harmony.

The Moon is in Sagittarius all day today, bringing with her a lighter heartedness and desire to go out into the world with her. With the sun in Leo this might be a nice time to explore what is around you.

In the early morning the moon squares Neptune. This energy peaks at 1:43AM EDT and wanes down tomorrow. This energy may leave us feeling a little bit impressionable. Under this transit you may be wearing your rose colored glasses around. It is OK to wear them from time to time. Just remember they are on and not to let yourself be confused by others at this time. If you feel confusion – wait, and make your decision another time.
You may want to hold onto some Clear Quartz at this time to help you see things clearer.

The last energy is between the moon trine Uranus. This energy peaks 10:00PM EDT. This energy can bring some interesting surprises and have us feeling quite original. It may also be a good time to do something uplifting or inspirational for yourself. I think I am going to get my paints out and start this painting I have had in my mind. I always feel inspiration during this transit!
Hang onto some Aquamarine would be a great gemstone to help boost the inspiring energy of this transit.

You may like to use some frankincense to connect with Spirit energy during these transits.

Welcome Tuesday, day of Mars!

Today is a good day to get things done that have been lingering. We may not entirely feel like that with the moon in Sagittarius making a trine to Jupiter at 9:37 AM EDT when she also goes void of course. The moon in Sag trine Jupiter in Leo would much rather have fun and play. But void-of-course moons are a very good time to take care of old business. Wait until the moon goes into the next sign to start something new.

The void-of-course moon finally ends at 2:47 PM when she enters Capricorn. If we did not feel like working before we probably do now, as the Capricorn moon supports a strong work ethic. One reason we would rather work is because the moon in Capricorn likes to avoid her feelings so working is a good way to focus energy on something else.

Lady moon makes a trine to our other lady of the sky, Venus in Virgo, who is in her role as the evening star right now. You can see Venus on the western horizon after sunset along with Jupiter. This is a soft aspect that makes us appreciate the value of things (and people) in our lives. There really is a silver lining.

A good stone to work with today is turquoise which helps us with alignment.

A good essential oil for today is Roman chamomile which aids us in becoming more peaceful.

Namaste & until tomorrow!
