Moon Musings

April 18-24, 2022

Monday, April 18, 2022

We continue into this week under the 🌖 Waning Gibbous / Disseminating Moon. This is the Grateful Phase of Grandmother Moon that will take us through most of the week. We will shift out of this energy on Thursday at 7:55 am EDT. It’s time to B-R-E-A-T-H-E. 

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

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.

The ♏ Scorpio 💧Water Energy is coming to an end today at 7:53 pm EDT, so 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. Be sure to lighten up, but don’t give in to the shadow.

During this 🌚⚠️ Void Moon (VOC)🌙  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. Sometimes it’s very short spurts while other times it’s looong. It can last minutes, hours, and sometimes, even days. In this case it will be a few short hours from 7:54 pm – 10:16 pm EDT.

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.

At 10:17 pm, we will then end the evening in the fiery energy of ♐ Sagittarius for the next couple of days. If you fancy letting off some steam and overindulging yourself, you’ve read this on the right day. A Sagittarius Moon Day is the one for taking things as far as you can. The energy is connected to the planet Jupiter, which loves excess and pretty much always overdoes it. Of course, all this “have your cake and eat it too” can come at a cost. Be careful not to throw caution to the wind totally today. Being adventurous is one thing but being reckless is another.

Be mindful that 🔥Fire Energy is impulsive, but connect with your passion.

The themes that you will be encountering during this ♐ Sagittarius🔥Fire Energy is connected to travel, study, freedom, the Great Cosmic Quest, religion, and higher education. Which one of these is in your wheelhouse this week. Only focus on one theme. 

This is a great day for having fun, rolling the dice, taking a chance, taking the first step, and being adventurous. It’s not so good for reining things in, dampening your enthusiasm, and limiting yourself. This is a lucky sign, so luck is on your side. This is where you can take a risk.

This is also a great day to dream about the amazing book you want to publish (or to write that book), or to put your mind to ideas of travel or study. It’s also a good time to see the big picture – doing this can really help us things into perspective and move us into that all-important state of gratitude from which all good things come. This ♐ Sagittarius 🔥Fire Energy Moon will be coming to an end at 4:54 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. This 🌚⚠️ Void of Course Moon🌙 will begin a 4:55 pm and end at 11:51 pm EDT.

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.

♑Capricorn ⛰️ Earth-Moon Energy is good for achieving career goals. It’s not so good for lounging around. These next few days will be a good time to focus on work. This a great time to be ambitious, working on your career and showing the world where you leave your will leave your mark. Earth-Moon is grounding, practical, and stable. 

You can use the day to get yourself back on the path that will take you towards your ideas of success, but don’t forget to have some fun.

Need to get yourself together? Get your head in order? Make a plan? Then Capricorn Moon Day has your back. Capricorn is the most ordered and ambitious of the signs so when the Moon is here, being sensible and strategic is the order of the day. it’s a wonderful time to get your life back on track. Think about where you’ve been, where you want to go, and what kind of mark you want to leave on the world in this ♑Capricorn ⛰️ Earth Energy.

♑ Capricorn ⛰️ Earth Energy is a day when relationships with bosses, or your position as a boss, could come to the fore. Behaving maturely and thinking long-term are the keys to success now. Be smart, but don’t be too serious. Work out your goals for the months ahead (it’s a good day to do your month-ahead plan), but don’t let all this squeeze the joy out. 

Earth-Moon Energy is grounding, practical, and stable. And today is “Earth Day” what a great way to end this ♑ Capricorn ⛰️ Earth Energy at 11:51 pm EDT. 

Use the day to get yourself back on the path that will take you toward your ideas of success. And don’t forget to have some fun.

Caution during 🌚⚠️ Void Moon (VOC) 🌙. 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.

This 🌚⚠️ Void of Course🌙 Moon will be a short time starting at 11:52 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. And given this short time, many of us will be either getting ready for bed or already sleeping when we move in and out by 2:16 am EDT tomorrow. 

Saturday, April 23, 2022

We are transitioning from one Zodiac sign to the next but aren’t reflecting elements or making any major aspects with either sign. 🌚⚠️ Void of Course🌙 Moon can last minutes, hours, and sometimes, even days. 

As we spend most of the weekend in the ♒ Aquarius ☁️  Air Energy beginning at 2:17 am EDT. You may find that you are all in your head. When around others, you may also find that you are more chatty and you might find that you or others are flighty. You may end up with lots of ideas. Remember to slow things down. 

During this time, you will want to spend more time with friends and your social networks. This is a good time to connect with your hopes and dreams. 

Aquarius Moon Days have a slightly nerve-jangling quality. It’s as though we all need to start to be a tad more progressive and think about the future. Aquarius is all about modernization and progress. And when the Moon is in Aquarius, the status quo might very well go. It’s a great day to rebel and be non-conformist, too. Aquarius is an energy that likes to live outside the box.

We are now moving into the “release” phase of Grandmother Moon 🌗 Last Quarter Moon at 7:56 am EDT. This is the 2nd last phase before entering the New Moon. What do you know? This is the time to re-evaluate, balance, and trust. Trust includes trusting the Universe, yourself, and trusting yourself when it comes to others. 

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

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

You will continue to feel the benefits of your hard work over 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.

This is the time to start releasing the things you’ve been hanging on to that may be preventing you from fully receiving what you desire. Release those blocks and anything that no longer serves you.

Sunday, April 24, 2022

At 8:32 pm EDT, we will be moving out of the ♒ Aquarius ☁️ Air Energy. You may find that the Universe (or rather the Moon) supports you in being your wackiest, best self. Aquarius loves to do good things for the world and to do those things with as many people as possible. 

This is a good time for making wishes. Have you been stuck on figuring out how to change something? During the Aquarius Moon Energy, you can come up with different ways (outside of the box) of doing things. It’s important not to halt progress on something that you are working on.

Remember to be fashion-forward and forward-thinking and, well, just forward. Don’t be surprised if you’re too frank and people take offense.

We will be ending this week in the 🌘 Waning Crescent / Balsamic Moon. During this final phase, Grandmother Moon reminds us that it’s time to surrender. This is a time of release and healing. 

Now there is just a sliver of Grandmother Moon being lit up and decreasing as it moves towards the new moon.

You will be preparing to set new intentions with the new cycle, but not during this moon. Just relax and surrender to the universe.
