It's a take charge kind of Monday, blasting us into the week with an Aries Moon. You get a boost of fire mojo to get things done. At the waning Moon -- with the half Moon tomorrow -- forceful decisions and actions are possible. This is the point of clearing and endings. The waning (decreasing) Moon prepares us for the New Moon in Cancer, an emotional reset, and a lunation of coming home to authentic feeling, integration.
Every time the Moon goes into a cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra Capricorn), it reverbs off the epic Uranus-Pluto square. It's a chance to encounter these transformational tensions from another angle. With Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac, it's a rush out of the starting gate. Any pressures we're facing get handled head on, and we make an admirable beeline to what's inspiring, bright and somehow challenging.
We all have the cardinal fire of Aries energy in our charts -- this is where you experience eruptions of lifeforce and are happiest when at your edge. That impulse is unpredictable and animating, especially with the awakener Uranus in Aries now.
Aries schools us in the power of action, and the momentum that rushes in when we decide to take a creative risk. This week's half Moon in Aries (July 10th/11th) sets a mood of acting, and the rush of excitement overrides any fear or hesitation. Or an opportunity presents itself out of the blue, and you move organically with it. Keep in mind, with the diminishing Moon, the action might be more about release or removing obstacles -- to clear the way for what's ahead.
