We are one week away from a total full moon eclipse in Leo, the theatrical conclusion to a series of eclipses that began in 2017. Early Monday morning, emotional conflict will turn us towards the climax of next Monday’s eclipse, during the first quarter moon at 1:45 AM.
We’re hungover from overdoing it this weekend, when Jupiter, the planet of excess, squared off with Neptune, the planet of fantasy, which compelled us to get drunk and carried away; lost in our own little worlds. On Monday morning, communication planet Mercury gently harmonizes with Neptune at 8:19 AM, helping us approach the wildness of the last few days from a productive perspective. At least we can draw creative inspiration from whatever mess happened over the weekend!
There’s more creative power to harness on Friday, when aesthetic Venus harmonizes with action planet Mars at 11:50 AM, enabling our creative choices to be carried out with ease. Later in the afternoon, our words carry heavy weight and we get things off of our chest when Mercury meets power planet Pluto at 3:01 PM—this is a check-in and follow-up to help us process the deep revelations that happened last Friday when the sun met Pluto! Later that evening, we hit a rebellious stride as the sun squares off with unconventional Uranus at 8:30 PM. We can stand up for ourselves and make well-informed upgrades after a weekend of poor choices and heavy realizations.
On Sunday, Aquarius season kicks off at 4:00 AM as the sun enters the forward-thinking sign—a great energy to have for Monday’s dramatic eclipse. Later in the evening, love and money planet Venus squares off with dreamy Neptune, creating changes in aesthetics based on otherworldly intuition.
