Weekend Moon: Gemini & Cancer!

Astro New Moon CrescentStart your weekend early on Friday March 7, 2014. A Mercury ruled Gemini Moon can make us chatty and social. We will be compelled to communicate – some way, somehow, it can be fun for us and/or just busy – or both. With dual faceted Air sign Gemini, variety rules. 

In time for Sunday brunch, the Lunar orb moves into the Water sign it rules – Cancer. Be prepared to dial it back a bit. The 4th sign of the Zodiac, sensitive, often moody and emotional, is about protecting and nurturing. Making sure friends, family and strays are well fed. (It might be calming after all the Gemini twitting, emailing and FBing.)

Have a wonderful weekend!


Get Ready For Full Moon in Cancer!

Wednesday, January 15, 2014, finds us with a Full Moon in the nurturing, sensitive Water sign of Cancer at 11:52 PM EST/ 8:52 PM PST. So, as a “New” Moon is best for beginning projects- starting something new, implementation of ideas – the “Full” phase (Moon opposes the Sun in the sky, as it  “wanes” on its way to the 3rd and 4th quarters) is optimum for the finalization of projects, plans, etc.

Astro Moon FullCancer is family and home focused, so completing old business may involve where you live – clearing out the old, giving space to the new. Gather up and give away anything no longer useful or positive in your space, whether it be things, feelings  or conversations. Good time to get rid of what’s “done and dusted” and move on to what’s next.  

FYI: The Moon shifts into regal, Fiery Leo early the next morning, however, “Full” energy remains for approximately 10 days. Crystallization is best done during the final Moon quarters. The circle begins again at the next New Moon phase, January 30th.


It’s Baaaaack! Mercury Retrograde 6/26/13

Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, manual dexterity, stops motion and begins its travel backward in the sky (“Retrograde”) beginning Wednesday June 26, 2013. It happens in the nurturing, sensitive, Water sign of Cancer, however, regardless of the Sun sign, my cautions are always the same. With the sluggishness of Retrograde, energy may be blunted and snafus can occur. Project initiation/creation would be best delayed if possible – if not, be meticulous, be careful. (Jump all over the details.)

Astro planet 3Emotional, moody Cancer is concerned with family and friends and enjoys taking care. Be careful about what is said at the annual picnic or gathering to avoid hurt feelings or misunderstood intentions.

As always, use this time to review, rethink, rework, revise, revisit, so that when Mercury stops and reverses to Direct on July 20, 2013, it’s forward motion can be taken advantage of and projects that appeared to be stalled can be rejuvenated and re launched with the benefit of any retooling that was done.

Mercury Retrograde – 9:08AM EDT / 6:08 AM PDT, 6/26/13

Weekend Moon: Gemini & Cancer

Astro moon-waning-crescent-lFriday and Saturday 6/7 and 6/8 finds us in the throes of a chatty, variety loving Gemini Moon. The Sun is also in this youthful, Mercury ruled Air Sign right now so don’t be surprised if you’re in constant movement and constant communication. It can be fun and/or just busy. You decide.

On Sunday, just in time for brunch, the Moon moves into the sign it rules – Cancer. This sensitive, emotional Water sign is about caring and nurturing. Making sure friends, family and strays are well fed and taken care of.

Flighty, versatile Gemini Moon followed by motherly, but moody Cancer Moon – embrace the variety, be flexible.

Have a wonderful weekend!


Communication & Caring – Weekend Moon

The Moon is in Gemini on Friday October 5, 2012. A set of twins is the usual symbol for Gemini and this duality makes us want to do two things at once- scrabble and crossword, chat and charm, read and write, FB and Twit. Just remember to breathe. Everything doesn’t have to happen at warp speed. Enjoy the communication, the interaction, the wit.

Next up, Saturday and Sunday, is the sensitive, nurturing, 4th sign of the Zodiac – Cancer. Ruled by the Moon, this caring, emotional Water sign can be moody and difficult, however, family and friends are always important and we will want to  look after them regardless of the mood we’re in.

Have a terrific weekend! 

Great Weekend = Gemini Moon, Cancer Moon

Start the weekend on Friday September 7th and experience 2 days of a variety loving Gemini Moon. Ruled by the planet Mercury, we will be compelled to communicate – some way, somehow. This versatile Air sign may mean leisurely networking, or active socializing, it can be fun for us and/or just busy – or both. With dual faceted Gemini, the need for flexibility rules. 

In time for Sunday brunch, the Lunar orb moves into it’s sign ruler – watery Cancer. Be prepared to dial it back a bit. The 4th sign of the Zodiac, sensitive, often moody and emotional,  is about protecting and nurturing. (It might be calming after all the Gemini twitting, emailing, voice mailing and FBing of the previous few days :) )



Full Moon in Cancer – Family, Friends, Food!

Sunday and Monday, January 8 and 9, 2012, the Moon is in home loving, nurturing Cancer. The Sun is in the opposite sign of Capricorn, until the 20th, and when the luminaries are facing each other, the Moon will be lit in “Full” phase. The Moon rules water sign Cancer and its caring, emotional, moody traits are pushed to the forefront. You can have fun checking in with friends and family you might have missed during the holidays. Devise healthy, but comforting, foods for loved ones. (Even if not at your most jovial, you will still want to be around them.)

Take advantage of Full Moon energy – clear out the old, make space for the new. Gather and tie up any loose ends of projects started at the last New Moon, 12/24/11. Putting the finishing touches on any hot DIY home improvements should go well when handled within the last 2 weeks after the Lunar orb is “Full”.  (The circle begins again at the next “New” phase, 1/22/12.)


Chat & Nurture – Weekend Moon in Gemini, then Cancer

All day Friday, January 6, 2012, is about Gemini Moon influences: craving variety, being flexible, needing to communicate – such as talking and texting at the same time. Just pay attention to what you say or write, don’t get sloppy. (Remember that old saying about “loose lips”, etc) 

Saturday afternoon quiets down the restless energy as the Cancer Moon glides us toward calm and comfort. There will be nesting instincts with lots of sensitivity and emotion thrown in. (Don’t take anything personally.) There may also be nurturing and caring, which usually involves food. Share. Besides being a nice thing to do, it will also cut down on any overeating tendencies that might surface.

Enjoy the weekend!

Astrology: New Moon Weekend in Leo – This Could Be Exciting!

Both luminaries in the same sign means = “New Moon”. The Sun moved into ambitious, generous, enthusiastic Leo on July 22, 2011 and on Saturday July 30th, the Moon will also be in the same regal Fire sign. This is the 2nd “New” for this month – a rare occurrence. Since this particular Moon phase is always great for beginnings, take it as a sign of encouragement to initiate something in the next few days. If you have a project to get off the ground, someone that you need to enroll in your life, a presentation to make – charm and fortune are amped up. The Sun is powerful. Give yourself permission to shine.

The Moon remains in Sun ruled Leo until Sunday evening and it bodes well for an active, energetic, creative time. Put all that Solar driven joy and confidence all over people, give a performance, have fun with any melodrama that might ensue.  (Drama doesn’t always have to be a hissy fit.)

Possibilities for a fabulous weekend are endless. Let the good times…


FYI- The New Moon was in Cancer on July 1st, while the Sun was in the same sign. 

Astrology: Weekend Moon in Gemini and Cancer 4/8/11 – Mixed Moods

The Friday morning Gemini Moon is just in time for leisurely networking or active socializing, or both – with dual faceted Gemini, variety reigns. This Air sign is ruled by the current Retrograde planet Mercury and we should be reminded to watch the details as we balance and sort how to spend time. My favorite example: “meet me in Paris” – Is it the one in Texas or France?  (I don’t know why this always makes me laugh :)

Things slow down in the evening until the Moon moves into Cancer, the Water sign that it rules, on Saturday afternoon and remains thru Monday morning. Rather than restless energy, there will be nesting instincts with some sensitivity and emotion thrown in. Caring and food can be major components.

It’s all good. Have a super weekend!
