8/6/2010 It may be hard to focus on your work or chores today; this is a good period for creativity but can be confusing if you’re doing linear tasks.

If you’ve weekend plans, it may be hard to keep your mind on anything else. However. there may be a miscommunication in the early evening or disagreement with a friend/loved one.

It’s important to keep in mind that words are not always the surest path to understanding one another.

The moon is VOC* from 5:22 to 5:50 pm ET. A walk by the water or through a cool museum may be far more soothing than any conversation.

The moon in Cancer indicates there may be some raw feelings, so treading lightly can be healing, whether you’re the person feeling it or your companion is.

The big news is from 6:08 pm to 11:10pm ET, when the Cardinal Cross is activated. In the Washington DC chart, the moon moves from the 6th to the 3rd house, signifying once again, the deep concerns of healthcare, service and work for our children, family, neighborhoods. The tension of this “rock and a hard place” may splinter and start to cleave, as change demands shifts from the status quo.

Venus enters Libra at 11:48 pm, setting up a period over the next few weeks where people love to do things “together”.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course: Avoid signing contracts, investing in a big purchase or beginning new projects or important conversations. Perfect time for clearing away clutter, finishing up loose ends, meditating or following serendipity. The “mood” of the period will be colored by the sign it is in… in Gemini, conversations can be particularly misunderstood; avoid important correspondence or phone calls. Great time to clean out old emails and tidy up your desktop.
