The waxing crescent Moon entered earthy Virgo just after midnight. Early this morning she had a happy chat with Venus, and by mid-morning, she engages in a positive trine with Uranus, who offers surprise and insight. For the rest of the day, she is on her own, bringing us another in a string of fairly uncomplicated days.

Today is just right for taking care of tasks around the home and garden, for tidying up your special places.

Just because I say here that today is uncomplicated doesn’t necessarily suggest that life, in general, has been easy lately. The overall astrological picture for the year is tough, I’ll admit. This string of simple days can take the pressure off and provide a window of rest and respite. But we are in a tough cycle, to be sure.

What I write about here daily is mundane astrology — the astrological weather, or what is happening currently in the sky. I cannot take into account how that shows up in your unique chart. For those of you with planets and angles in cardinal signs, I imagine that you, in particular, have had a challenging year so far.

The Moon began the day in the wee hours with a pleasant trine to jovial Jupiter. Now she is void-of-course for the entire day and evening until she enters Virgo just after midnight.

Today is perfect for having fun in the sun and resting up from yesterday’s festivities. Let today be all about you.

Saturday will be all about errands and chores. Mind the void Moon and avoid holiday sales until tomorrow – whatever you buy during the void may not work out as planned (especially any digital/mechanical devices – Mercury is almost standing still, ready to turn retrograde on Sunday.)

Remember those long summer days when you were a kid? I hope you had freedom like I did to ride bikes, swim, explore thickets, turn over stream-rocks, or just hang out with friends. Treat yourself to that kind of day today. Drop any agenda and play like a kid.

The work week is off to a quiet start as the Moon finishes up her time in Gemini. She joins with Venus this afternoon and then is void-of-course from 5:48 PM ET until she enters Cancer at 9:24 PM.

Moon and Venus together in Gemini may put you in the mood to shop for fun clothes or whimsical items. Just be sure to make any purchases before the Moon is void or said purchase may not work out as planned.

Be thinking about any home and family related projects or ideas you want to set in motion with this Cancer New Moon. The accompanying solar eclipse (visible mostly in South America, not here) could bring clarity or revelation for you in this regard.

Today the Cancer Sun is engaged in a positive and supportive conversation with Uranus in Taurus. One can expect the unexpected today. I was feeling it yesterday as little surprises kept popping up, altering my day. Not unpleasant, just unexpected. And busy!

Stay flexible and roll with the changes. Resistance is futile. The more one resists what Uranus offers, the more insistent he becomes.

Or be pro-active! Step outside your normal routine, take a mental health day, go do something different. With the waning Moon in Taurus, treat yourself to a massage or a spa day. Or go to the beach and hang out with people you don’t normally spend time with.

As the Sun goes down this evening, the Moon joins into the conversation as she conjuncts Uranus, amping up your desire for freedom and escape. Go camping out in the wilds. Build a big campfire, gaze into space, and talk about your craziest ideas.

Today looks to be a very quiet day, astrologically speaking. With the Moon in Aries (ruled by Mars, currently in Cancer) and the Sun in Cancer, today would be a fine day to work on home improvement projects or vegetable gardening. The mood may be a bit cranky and impatient, so solo work would be the best option.

The waning Aries moon reaches her fourth quarter as the Sun is coming up. Now is a time to reflect on what this Moon cycle has been about for you.

Look back to the New Gemini Moon of June 3rd. Was there a theme to this month? A project begun? An idea hatched? Take stock of what has worked and what has not. Begin letting go of whatever no longer serves and is not worth the effort to carry into the next Moon cycle.

Saturday gets off to a leisurely start with the Moon drifting void-of-course through the last degrees of Aquarius until she enters Pisces at 10:01 AM ET.

During the morning the Moon and Sun engage in a flowing trine, bringing a contented, imaginative, and dreamy vibe. Today is a good day for creativity, going with the flow, hanging out with friends and loved ones, and enjoying the height of summer.

As the summer Sun goes down, the Moon enters into a lively and positive chat with change-maker Uranus, perhaps inciting some intuitive hits and cosmic downloads, further enhancing the creative mood.

The waxing gibbous Moon moved into Virgo this morning as the Sun came up. Right away received vibes from electric Uranus, perhaps bringing an unsettled feeling or break with routine. I certainly had a little shock as I walked my dog at nearby athletic fields and found a used hypodermic needle in the parking lot.

Venus is moving into a square with Jupiter, exact this evening at 7:15 ET. Even though the square aspect typically brings challenge or change, many astrologers see these two planets as beneficial; thus your biggest problem could be too much of a good thing. It is possible to overdo it in some way, like overeating delicious food or charging too much on your credit card. Have fun, but be aware of this tendency.

Later in the evening, the Moon encounters a challenge from Mars, ramping up the energy level just when you want to go to bed. It may help to have a passionate romp with a partner before you try to sleep.
