Monday, we have the Queen of Cups. Sensitivity is heightened.

If you are receptive, this is a time that realizations bubble up to the surface and occur to you. People will pay more attention to messages or information from the ethereal. The Sun is in Pisces.

At the same time, the Moon is in Capricorn. Reality feels stark. Sensitivity to criticism and rejection is also heightened.

As a benefit of the Neptunian/Piscean influence, there is some respite. You may transcend the effects of the Capricorn influence in a number of ways. You might fail to notice, being in a bouyant mood. You may feel good to be of service, or you might use a Saturn-Neptune trick of skewing your perception of reality.

Either way, the effect is temporary as the Moon will move on to Aquarius in 2-3 days, so if you feel bad or depressed during Capricorn Moons, you can breathe easy knowing that the effects won’t last.

If you feel like keeping to yourself or hiding today, it would actually be better to do the opposite and get out and face your fears head on.

Capricorn rewards those who face their fears.

I understand if you’d prefer to pull the covers over your head. Being empowered is another option.

When you’re not feeling so strong emotionally, what do you tend to do?

Tuesday, the Moon moves into Capricorn and we have the Queen of Wands.

This reminds me of the Queen (Moon) of Pentacles (Capricorn) and the Queen of Wands combination. The Moon rules needs, women, intuition, emotions, and nurture. Pentacles are associated with earth and Capricorn, depending on the reader and deck. I tend to think of the Queen of Pentacles as a businesswoman. She nurtures her business or earthly things.

Queen of Wands is a woman who is passionate and fiery. She is often associated with Leo, but she could be any sign. Courts show or highlight characteristics. This Queen is described as being dramatic, entertaining, and fun. She nurtures her passions.

With this combination of earth and fire, there is a lot of potential. Fire seeks, does, inspires, and creates. Earth provides traction, tenacity, and groundedness. It’s possible to go towards the deep end of either element, but when mixed well, you have someone who is has vision, drive, and the ability to make their vision real.

Do you see this energy today? Do you see this energy in yourself?
