Today: April 8, 2011

Waxing moon in Gemini; moon void-of-course 10:02 pm until 5:02 pm Saturday. A superb day for getting in touch with friends, or “touching base,” with a wide assortment of folks. Do you loathe the term “touching base”? Me too — sensitivity to language is another attribute of Gemini moons. Gemini, Aquarius, Libra, Leo, and Aries are in fine form (and possibly bedazzled), while Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are frazzled.

This week: April 8, 2011

Waxing moons are helpful for planning your activities. Build on what you’ve started, develop ideas, projects, and relationships further. And with Mercury retrograde, it’s wise to keep a sense of humor about everything that doesn’t happen as it was “supposed” to happen this week. Mars in Aries is inspiring fire signs, Aries, Sagittarius, and Leo to take big risks. But it’s also vexing September Libra, December Capricorn, and June Cancers and making them impatient.

About MoonSigns

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.
