The temperature in Los Angeles has skyrocketed this week–so we are definitely in the heat of summer! We are also approaching the closing leg for this lunar cycle with a Last Quarter Moon arriving Thursday morning. Now might be a good time to take a look at where you are with the goals you created for this year–we’re headed into the stretch; the autumnal equinox occurs next month and it will be a hop, skip and a jump into the holidays and the much ballyhooed end of 2012.
The waning Moon moves into Taurus at 12:28 AM and becomes void of course Thursday morning. Wednesday is a three star day and Thursday a one star day, with a long void of course Moon. Self care modalities such as yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, Qi Gong or Reiki will help you cope with the low celestial energies as well as the heat. Try lavender or citrus essential oil scents (lemon or bergamont) dropped into a spray bottle to refresh yourself and your surround–and to keep you cool!
Moon in Taurus asks what needs organizing, where is the money at–and is it sufficient for my needs? It is about love, luxury, security and serenity. Get in step with the Moon in Taurus by wearing shades of blue, green, spring green, turquoise, pastels, pink or cream. Jade, coral, green turquoise, agate or carnelian crystals in your jewelry are excellent choices that match the mood of the Moon in Taurus, as do scents of vanilla, violet, rose, ylang, ylang, patchouli or honeysuckle essential oils or incense.
Wednesday 8 August 2012 the enters Taurus at 12:28 AM (Note: all times indicated in this blog are PDT). A sextile between the Moon and Venus at 1:54 AM enhances your chances of success in romantic and money matters; and if you’re up at that hour, beauty, decorating or music projects also fair well under this aspect. Written or verbal communications hit obstacles when the Moon squares Mercury at 3:20 AM–best to let things ride for now. An early morning meditation, creative and or dream work projects benefits from the Moon-Neptune sextile at 4:50 AM. Major breakthroughs in research projects, Law of Attraction work for eliminating bad habits, metaphysical studies or therapeutic sessions is possible thanks to a trine between Mercury and the Moon at 3:12 PM.
Thursday 9 August 2012 the Last Quarter Moon (Moon square the Sun) arrives at 11:55 AM and then we get a chance to see what projects are completed as well as where our plans have run aground during this lunar cycle; the Moon is void of course after that aspect until tomorrow afternoon, but you can begin thinking about what needs rebooting next week when the New Moon arrives. Idealistic love matters, creative projects or making a deep connection with Source are all a slam dunk thanks to a beautiful trine between Venus and Neptune at 3:36 PM. Unfortunately the Universe drops this beautiful aspect when the Moon is void of course, so I wouldn’t start a new project or ask a new love interest out at this time.
