What does VOC Moon mean?

Horoscopes are not a substitute for a full chart consultation, but they are like markers along the path. My horoscopes are meant to provide some insight and inspiration. 

If you know your rising sign and sun sign, please read both.


Aries, the learning continues this week. Apply the knowledge to your daily life. Create a ritual around this, and your efforts will be fruitful. You are in a long period of shedding your armor, allowing yourself to be vulnerable. Paradoxically, this will make you more courageous. However, it’s a slow process, and it will cause you some discomfort. When in doubt, stay true to your values. What you’re learning now will help to ground you. Mercury’s move into your fellow fire sign of Leo on Wednesday lights the flames of your creativity. Use this transit to have fun, enjoy romance, and/or follow artistic inspiration. A creative outlet is crucial, with all of the work you’re doing right now.


Taurus, money is a bit tricky this week. It might come to you on the winds of good fortune now, or you might feel like you’re just tossing cash out the window. The only constant is change. To that end, figure out what you want and how you’re going to get it, even with the ups and downs. For you, multiple income streams present more possibilities. Don’t forget that you have more resources at your disposal than you might think. Magic is useful here. On Wednesday, when Mercury moves into Leo, you enter a period of more activity at home. You might get creative about redecorating, or have fun plans with family members. Enjoy your time with those you love.


Gemini, friendships and partnerships are still the highlight for you this week. Look to others for perspective, and make sure you communicate your thoughts effectively as well. Other people bring healing, joy...and frustration. Relationships are messy; that’s the way it goes for everyone. Ask yourself what the other person is here to teach you. Ask yourself what is important to you, at the heart of the situation. On Wednesday, when your ruling planet Mercury moves into Leo, your gift of gab is enhanced. You enter a more intense period of communication, learning, reading, and local travel. Explore your options.


Cancer, your dreams this week herald the changes to come. This is a kind of cocoon stage; you await something that you might not yet be able to identify. Just absorb all of the information right now, and take notes. Reading, writing, and classes of any kind will help you sort this out. When Mercury moves into Leo on Wednesday, you get a boost to your sense of self-worth. Creative talents ought to be shown off, and commercial activity is likely to go your way. Be authentic even when it feels most vulnerable, and you will be rewarded by attracting more people who are absolutely here for it. You get a little break this week from some of the relationship angst. Use it.


Leo, beautiful ideas continue to surface from the depths of your unconscious. It may not be clear where they’re coming from, but now is the time to use your talent and harness the inspiration. Turn it into something you can share with an audience. Mercury’s move into your sign on Wednesday helps you render your imaginative visions in vivid color. Now other people can see all of the creative thoughts you’ve been harboring over the past month. Create, collaborate, and perform.


Virgo, developments at home and/or with a significant partner still present a challenge: to use your voice. Do you see the many options available to you? Which of them do you want most? How will you speak up? Assert yourself to achieve what you want. You may need an outside perspective to help you cut through confusion where a partnership is concerned. Through efforts in your vocation, you may be able to say something beautiful. On Wednesday, your ruling planet Mercury moves into Leo, enhancing your imaginative capabilities. If you have not been able to see a way forward, perhaps Mercury will help you dream up a new solution.


Libra, it’s not all coming up roses just yet, but you may feel some of the weight lift from your shoulders this week. You get a slight break from the Cardinal sign chaos right now. Stay vigilant against slipping back into old patterns, and continue to be authentic in relationships, even when it’s messy. This cycle is teaching you how to consciously handle conflict. Meanwhile, you can use this week’s reprieve to rest. Mercury’s move into Leo on Wednesday is a boon for your house of community. You have plenty to say to your audience, and you are getting ready to share.


Scorpio, you have many resources at your disposal. Get creative about how you access them and put them to use. You may even be creating new avenues to bring your dreams to fruition. Something materializes where before there was nothing: this is the gift. On Wednesday, when Mercury moves into Leo, you have opportunities to shine through your vocation. You may have a lot to say in public. Vocalize your creative ideas. Play with them! You have a voice for strong leadership, should you choose to accept your role as a leader.


Sagittarius, your partnerships are certainly interesting this week. You are almost always likely to have more than one admirer or romantic interest at a time. Who are they right now? If you have a choice to make, it requires self-knowledge, and you may not know enough to choose yet. So just have fun. Enjoy others for who they are and try not to make demands about who they should be. When Mercury moves into Leo on Wednesday, you go into school or travel mode. New adventures are on the horizon!


Capricorn, in the aftermath of last week’s imaginative full moon, this week invites you to form daily rituals that nourish and inspire you. Take care. Again, with Saturn on the south node, it’s important not to fall back on unhealthy patterns of overwork, under-communication, or conflict. The wise way forward is about making time and space for your relationships, communicating about emotions, and meeting conflict with healthy strategies. On Wednesday, when Mercury moves into Leo, you have a guide to lead you into your personal underworld, to uncover some forgotten gold. There is an untold story that waits—in your unconscious, or in an experience of loss that nevertheless gave you something valuable.


Aquarius, rest is the word of the week. It’s still important for you to create a daily routine that nurtures you. Eliminate stress and energy drains as much as possible. Be wary of hidden thought patterns that keep you stuck. The way forward is to move from discomfort and hardship into comfort. Imagine: work could be a comfortable place! It could even be a nurturing place. How can you make that happen? On Wednesday, when Mercury moves into Leo, sparks fly in a significant partnership or friendship. Have fun with the significant others in your life. That’s all part of the resting and nurturing theme.


Pisces, what is shifting for you along the lines of home and career, past and future? Though you are definitely leaving some things behind, there is so much beauty to take with you. Bring all those rich, varied jewels along with you on your vocational path. They are likely to come in handy this week. Remember that concerns related to the material world are best addressed on an inner level first. When you can honestly assess what you want, and see your own patterns and beliefs with clarity, you can begin to change your circumstances. When Mercury moves into Leo on Wednesday, work picks up. You have the ability to merge inner and outer. They were always one.
