Mind Over Matter

by Crystal Taylor

Monday the Moon enters Aquarius. Attraction to all that is new and unusual and an instinctive need for improvement, characterize the Moon in Aquarius. Reactions are more intellectual than emotional, and interactions are more impersonal. This is a good time for dealing with group ideals and goals for the future, brainstorming, new ideas, and progressive changes.


There is an increased interest in knowledge and a need to communicate with like-minded individuals. At the same time, your desire for freedom and independence is strengthened, and you will want to establish your own rules. It is a good period for reading, study and scientific pursuits. However, activities which require subordination and discipline, as well as jobs which bore you, will go from bad to worse now.


This is a useful time and you should have a lot of mental energy. You can accomplish a great deal. You may create ego conflicts as you may feel too confident and almost self-righteous. Be careful and use tact. Your mind is very serious right now and it’s a good time for teaching others or taking care of business opportunities. You can be good at mental task that requires concentration. Try not to isolate yourself as it may make you feel down.


However on Thursday the Moon enters Pisces. You are not inclined to want to face reality while the Moon is in dreamy, impressionable Pisces. It can be a wistful, sensitive, intuitive, and compassionate time. This brings an increase of emotions and a receptivity to other peoples' feelings. You will have a desire to be of help, and you may be willing to sacrifice something for the sake of others. Your emotions predominate over common sense, so it is better to do things which require imagination and inspiration, rather than reason and cool logic. Your body may be more responsive than usual to alcohol, drugs and medicines, so beware of overdoses. The Moon in Pisces generally favors imaginative undertakings, mystical or spiritual pursuits, inner development, music or water activities.
