How often do you notice that you are hit by a mood, only for it to dissipate in a day or so? This is the influence of the moon, the body that changes zodiac signs every two and half days. In addition to ruling our emotions, the moon rules our daily activities and our home. It pays to know the influence of the moon as she moves through her phases, each one having a distinct energy, through a lunar forecast. This energy carries over into the moods of our family, friends and coworkers.
The New Moon Phase—May 28 to June 5—Starting in the social sign of Gemini, this moon phase urges you to get out and do fun things. It’s a perfect time to take short trips or hosting picnics. Bosses shouldn’t expect to get any appreciable work done Thursday or Friday. Employees, lured by sunny weather, will take vacation days or just call out sick to create minivacations during the Memorial Day Weekend after a long and difficult winter. Gardeners looking to set out plants should wait until May 30th, though it may be too rainy to do so that day. The next planting day will be June 4th, which seems to have excellent aspects to plant flowering plants for growth and beauty.
First Quarter Moon Phase—June 6 to June 13—At this phase we are looking for the first gains of the actions of the new moon. But with this particular phase we cannot expect results. In the relationship sign of Libra this moon needs harmony in relationships. Mars, the planet of trouble, is conjunct the Libra moon, kicking up problems. People stir the pot with unwelcome opinions and observations. Keep your cool, knowing that this too shall pass.
Full Moon Phase—June 14 to June 20—During the full moon we are ready for action! But should we act on our impulses? The defining symbol of this phase is that the moon is in opposition to the sun, our emotions versus our identity. The sun is in Gemini, and the moon in Sagittarius. Both signs are social, and love to have a good time. Where they are different is that Gemini focuses on short-term results, while Sagittarius looks for long-term gains. The star patterns say you may have to choose between fun now, or what you desire later.
Last Quarter Moon Phase—June 21 to June 27—This phase brings us the results of our actions. With this moon phase ruled by nebulous Neptune, we might not be sure of what we have wrought. Other people are not pleased and let us know about their displeasure. This just may be a case of people sticking their noses in where they do not belong. Everyone else is copasetic with what you’ve achieved, so ignore the naysayers. Go ahead. Buy something nice for yourself.
