Monday’s skies are focused almost entirely on the perfect square between Mercury and Uranus. Out of this configuration tumble new ideas, shocking messages, innovative solutions, and suddenHoroscopes & Ongoing Influences

Sunday is subject to cranky conditions. The Moon spends most of the daylight in a square with slow, heavy Saturn, weighing down the mood. Evening, though, sees the Moon make an escape into considerably-more-mellow Taurus and then spend the remainder of the night in a sweet, comforting and mutually received sextile with Venus in Cancer. It is a nicely timed dose of cuddle time.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The first half of Saturday is warmed by a trine between the Sun in Leo and Moon in Aries. This passing agreement between the luminaries brings some harmony to the day’s events, which is reinforced by Luna’s configuration with Jupiter.
Night, though, is fertile ground for a bad mood. The Moon spends the late night conjunct red-hot Mars in Aries and square ominous Pluto in Capricorn, temporarily exaggerating the tense power play between the planets. If you don’t want a throw-down, give touchy topics a wide berth.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The day begins with a brief Moon-Venus square, just prior to a pair of important shifts. The first is Luna’s movement into fiery Aries, which puts a pace on the next couple days, flogging things forward with a habanero goad.
The other shift is of a quite different quality. Venus finally abandons frenetic, gossipy Gemini. The bright morning star leaves the Twins behind in favor of a bit of tide-pooling with the Crab. Venus’ shift into Cancer activates our sensitive side, turning us away from the crowd and toward the private joys and pains of the hearth. Feelings of vulnerability, as well as the need for comfort and security, are heightened during Venus’s time in Cancer, so take care not to take things to heart too quickly, or to accidentally wound someone more deeply than you intend.
Contrarily, the feisty Moon in Aries spends most of the day in a trine with outgoing Mercury Leo, moving things along in a brisk and talkative manner.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Thursday begins with the Moon conjunct Neptune in Pisces, and in a nice sextile with Jupiter. It is a nice, if lazy, way to start off Jove’s day. Things will tend to move toward completion and success for the first part of the day, but slowly, as if bumping along a lazy river.
That fortuitous current dries out as we reach nightfall. Luna’s happy pairings with Neptune and Jupiter are replaced by a bonier and stonier duo—Pluto and Saturn. The evening and night thus slide toward heavier topics. Late night introduces an element of directional uncertainty, as well, due to Luna’s brief tangle with the Head and Tail of the Dragon.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
