The Cycles of Living

Stepping Stones to the Future


The Moon and You

The Moon's cycle is the easiest to observe. The Moon moves through every sign of the zodiac about thirteen times a year. You experience this cycle so many times there is a tendency to overlook its patterns. However, it is a potent and predictable factor in your life. In general, the daily Moon sign provokes the same response from each of us.

Observe the Moon cycle patterns in your life. Notice when you tend to be prickly, joyful, nervous, careless, etc. Keep track of which Moon signs tend to be in play when you're happy, sad or distracted. Once you know how each sign works for you, life will smooth out, considerably.

The Moon is the undisputed emotional barometer. In fact, when emotions are out of control we call it Lunacy. It is helpful to know which lunacies are affecting us during the week.

Moon in Sagittarius
Jul 26 @ 8:24a ET/5:24a PT
to July 28 @ 2:47p ET/11:47a PT
It will be a challenge to get going Monday. There energies at war with reality. If you have important decisions, you may rely on your what you would like to happen, not on facts. If you are in the arts, this is a good time to gather innovative ideas. It is not the time to implement, but to gather. Clear thinking is not highlighted. But it is a wonderful time to dream, fantasize, speculate using what if scenarios. Before the void period on Tuesday, make your important decisions. Use Tuesday to carry out your plans.

July 28@ 9:37a ET/6:37a PT
to July 28 @ 2:47p ET/11:47a PT
Almost a full day in the void. You can procrastinate OR you can tackle a task that seems to take more time than you think you have. You will be surprised at how much you will accomplish. The hours will pass just slowly enough to provide the time you need. Plus, take time to exercise or take a walk. Allow positive thoughts to energize you.

Moon in Capricorn
July 28 @ 2:47p ET/11:47a PT
to Jul 30 @ 5:41p ET/2:41p PT
Tuesday Afternoon through Thursday Afternoon you need to focus on your personal goals. Although there are challenges to your plans, release any fear or negativity. Insist on visualizing your goals in the most joyful and positive light. Each challenge is a stepping stone to accomplishments. You are being tested and that will help you focus. Stop and see yourself at the finish line. Then, forge ahead, steadfastly. When you feel tired, stop and rest, then get back into action.

to Jul 30 @ 5:41p ET/2:41p PT
The void period is not long. You can rest or you can use this time to finish your project. Remember to finish financial matters. Do not leave things until the last minute.

Moon in Aquarius
Jul 30 @ 5:41p ET/2:41p PT
to Aug 1 @ 6:36p ET/3:36p PT
Thursday evening to Saturday evening you are under the influence of crazy, unpredictable Aquarius. Actually, it is predictable that something out of the ordinary will occur during this Moon sign. This is the time to use your smarts to handle problem people and situations. At some point you may doubt your thinking process. If you must handle contracts, make your list of questions ahead of time and make sure you get clear answers. Friday may not be the best date night this week. Try Sunday brunch instead.
Moon Void in Aquarius
to Aug 1 @ 6:03p ET/3:03p PT
to Aug 1 @ 6:36p ET/3:36p PT
Take a break. This short void is fine for revitalizing your energy or toning down your activity level.

Moon in Pisces
Aug 1 @ 6:36p ET/3:36p PT
to Aug 3 @ 7:24p ET/4:24p PT
Popcorn, a movie, a pedicure. Treat yourself well Saturday evening. Welcome in Sunday with more of the same. Dream a little. Have a little fun. Let your creative juices flow. The only thing you should decide to do is enjoy life. Keep intoxicating beverages to a minimum or not at all. Make it ice cream instead of spirits. Use the wine in your favorite dish.
