Moon Musings

April 11-17, 2022

Monday, April 11, 2022

As we continue in this ♌ Leo🔥Fire Moon Energy that started yesterday. 🔥Fire Moons are fiery, impulsive, and passionate. The theme in particular with a ♌ Leo Moon is all about having fun, being creative, connecting with children, yours or someone else’s, and it’s a flirtatious energy.

It’s time to show off a little! Leo is the showstopper sign of the zodiac and when the Moon makes here monthly trek through Leo, you can be sure someone somewhere is turning heads. if you need to do something with confidence, a Leo Moon Day is a great place to start.

We start this week still in the 🌔Waxing Gibbous Moon Phase 4. This is the time to Refine: tweak, hone, and adjust as we stay on course.

The waxing moon is one phase away from becoming a full moon. The largest part of the moon is lit up leaving it to be seen throughout the day.

What do you need to do to adjust, refine, or edit your New Moon intention? What are some of the details that you need to add or delete from the plan?

During this moon, we realize what we need to change directions on, reevaluate or give up. Things don’t always work out the way we planned and we need to readjust.

This is the time to course-correct or make sacrifices. Don’t resist the feelings of change during this phase.

The ♌ Leo🔥Fire Moon Energy is also very creative and even artistic. It’s a day to the world “what you’ve got”. Don’t hide would be a total waste of the energies. Any showbiz-related razzamatazz is very well “starred” (Mooned) today, too. So tune in to the Leo Moon, and organize something fun to do.

This Moon is good for partying, wearing, lampshades, making ’em laugh, being awesome. However, it’s not so good for feeling like a shrinking violet. This is a good time to put your best foot forward and not fake humility – no one will fall for it today anyway. 

We have a very short 🌚⚠️ VOID MOON (VOC) 🌙 window between 6:16 am and 10:07 am EDT. During this time, we are transitioning between one Zodiac sign to the next, but isn’t reflecting elements/making any major aspects with either sign …. this is the gap between those transitions. During a Void of Course Moon, it gives us the time to just sit with the energy. If you can avoid doing anything during this time, then just sit with it in silence.

Over the next couple of days, we will connect to ♍ Virgo ⛰️ Earth Energy which is grounding, practical, and stable. This is a time to be of service to others, focus on your duties, create daily work life and your wellbeing, and a connection to small animals. 

It’s a time to settle down a little after two and a bit days of the Leo madness.

The ♍ Virgo ⛰️ Earth-Moon puts on its monocle, makes sure all the things on its desk are present and correct, and starts to do whatever it has to in order to keep life ticking over as it’s meant to. The Virgo Moon is a wonderful day to take stock, crunch the members and get a pretty good idea of where you are in life.

Where would you like to operate more efficiently? Or generally, function better? A Virgo Moon Day is ideal for starting that up. It’s also a very good day to think about your diet and general health regimes. If you feel you need treatment of some kind for an ailment, complementary medicine is a good place to start (but do see a GP if pain persists).

♍ Virgo ⛰️ Earth Energy will be coming to an end at 2:10 pm EDT. This Moon is good for releasing addictions, getting your life in order, and creating new routines. However, it is not the best Moon for going wild, being reckless, or doing other stupid stuff (although kinkiness with your beloved can work). During this time, be helpful, but don’t be too critical.

We’ve been experiencing shorter 🌚⚠️ VOID MOON (VOC) 🌙 and this one is no different. We will be moving out of this Void of Course Moon at 4:45 pm EDT. Moon Medicine is about self-reflection. Grandmother Moon reflects back what we need to look at, what we need to face, what we need to resolve. During a Void of Course Moon, it gives us the time to just sit with the energy. If you can avoid doing anything during this time, then just sit with it in silence.

Caution during these times: don’t start anything “big” or “important”; avoid things like presentations, facilitating workshops, or job interviews; sharing important information – it will either get lost or it could be misunderstood; plans you make during this time may not work out; avoid starting new projects; people are not what they seem, so be mindful; avoid large purchases.

When we connect with Air ☁️ Energy, we are often all in our head. We can be more chatty and flighty during this time. Particularly, ♎ Libra ☁️ Air Energy, is all about you, relationships (including work relationships), your significant others, marriage, lovers, VIPs, foes, as well as balance, and harmony.

This energy is sort of the equivalent of the Moon in the 7th House. And if Jupiter is aligned with Mars? Whoosh! This is not a good time to withdraw and isolate yourselves from others. Being alone is not the best. This is a great time to come to an agreement, but don’t let your head rule your heart which is sometimes difficult in an Air ☁️ Moon.

♎ Libra is the sign of partnership and relationships, so when the Moon is in the sign, it’s a wonderful time to turn your mind to matters romantic. And also to business matters involving partnerships. Are you giving and taking in equal amounts? Do you need to make your move on someone you have your eye on?

Saturday, April 16, 2022

We will spend most of today ♎ Libra ☁️ Air Energy. It’s also a good day to make peace with an ex you’ve loved and lost. Libra loves to negotiate, too, so if you have a personal or professional matter on which you’d like to reach an agreement, all things being equal – i.e. ego Saturn not clashing with Pluto or some such thing – this is the right day to start the conversation. It’s also basically just a great day for love, so shower the people you love with love. Wining and dining are also highly recommended.

Another 🌚⚠️ Void Moon (VOC) 🌙 from 5:56 to 8:22 pm EDT. Things to do during these times: connect with your spirituality; declutter your life (physical or emotional); stick with your routine; rest, make plans during this time; socialize; take a trip; review things that need editing in life or work; finish up something that you started.

As we moon into this next 🌕 Full Moon which is the 5th Phase 5 we focus on harvesting what we have planted. This is a Cycle that recurs each month and will be fully present at 2:54 pm EDT. This is make-or-break time! The keywords are about results, forgiveness, and gratitude. 

The Full Moon is when the moon and sun are on opposite sides of the Earth. When the sun is directly across from the moon making the moon shine bright and fully appears to us on Earth.

During this time, not only are they across from each other but the sun and Grandmother moon are in different zodiac signs. We fight to balance between two extremes, which heightens tensions creating high emotions during this time. Do not get emotionally attached to anything during this time.

This is the time to reap the benefits of the seeds of intention that you sowed at the new moon.

During this time, you’ll see new opportunities appear or you may even see the previous week’s results from your hard work. Be open to receive these.

Just after we begin Until this after 🌕 Full Moon in ♎ Libra at we will be moving into the ♏ Scorpio💧Water Energy starting 8:23 pm EDT. Water Moons in particular are emotional, psychic, and mysterious. However, the ♏ Scorpio Moon in particular is connected to sex, death, anything taboo, jealousy, rebirth, taxes, and other people’s money.

Investigating a mystery, getting to the bottom of something, and being a tad obsessive about someone you adore are good things to focus on when you are in a ♏ Scorpio Moon.

It’s really important to stay vigilant about being way too obsessive, developing bad habits, or snooping. 

Sunday, April 17, 2022

We will end the week in ♏ Scorpio💧Water Energy as we move into the 🌖 Waning Gibbous / Disseminating Moon. The 6th phase of Grandmother Moon is focused on gratitude.

Here’s the thing: Scorpio is a wonderful sign and we all have Scorpio somewhere in our chart, but also very much a part of our shadow side. And when the Moon moves through Scorpio, it does take on some of this Scorpionic energy, which, like the Scorpion itself, has a sting. So mind how you go on a Scorpio Moon Day. 

Tread carefully with anyone known to have a short fuse or a mean streak. And if you know you have a bit of a nasty sting in your own tail, do your mediations today. it’s a day when minor upsets and petty jealousies can crop up to remind us we’re humans on the evolutionary trail. The good news about Scorpio is that it’s a transformational energy, so used correctly, a Scorpio Moon Day can actually have a major impact, be it material or physical, or psychological. 

Remember to lighten up and don’t give in to the shadow.

During the next week or so in the 🌖 Waning Gibbous / Disseminating Moon remember to B-R-E-A-T-H-E. It’s time in this cycle, to relax, to accept, and to regroup. 

Grandmother Moon becomes less illuminated as she moves towards the last quarter moon into another new moon.

The themes during this time are gratitude, sharing, and enthusiasm.

Now you should feel the benefits of your hard work from the last two weeks. You should be seeing abundance of the “crops”, even if it’s small outcomes to the goals or intentions that you set during the last new moon. This is a good time to give to those around you – feel the love.
