Jupiter enters Libra at 7:18 AM. The largest planet sails through a sign for about a year and will remain in Libra until October 2017.

Jupiter is the planet which symbolizes good fortune and expansion. Now in direct motion, when it is teamed with a GOOD DAY, it is an auspicious time to start new ventures and investments.

Today you may wake with a mandate, or a sense of purpose. Whether this is spiritual or obligatory has much to do with your perspective an consciousness.

The Sagittarius Moon at its quarter moon position indicates a chafe to make your intentions happen; this leads to high productivity, but may also create tension if there is not clarity of intent.

Sometimes we start the New Moon cycle with ambition that gets derailed by more pressing matters. At the first quarter moon we are given an opportunity to get on track or abort, so that we can spend undivided energy towards the most viable option.

Keep in mind that long-term goals or creative outlets tend to not happen UNLESS one carves dedicated time. You may want to write, paint, bake, sew, study Cantonese or go to Sweden, but unless you allow time for the process, you never get off the ground.

Make a step today, whether 1/2 hour research on a travel destination or an hour at the drawing board. Write a post-it to remind you that everyday you take a step to this goal, no matter how small.

With Jupiter now in Libra, more opportunities comes through relationship.

Conversations in the evening may be confused or lead to crossed signals; make sure you understand and are understood. Assumptions lead to unexpected actions, which can be exciting.

In some cases, individual self-expression needs to take precedence over a group consensus. This doesn’t have to be dramatic, but it can be very decisive. Note what feels absolutely essential to you this evening and make it yours.

The Moon goes void-of-course/voc* at 8:51 PM ET.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Sagittarius, the scope of far-flung projects deserve attention, but direction is not apparent. Consider with vigor, but make no commitments. You may also want to physically explore a location but don’t expect to find anything concrete… keep your eye on the gas tank if you go for a long ramble. More about the Moon VOC
