BYB: Be Your Best

Moon’s Influence

As the moon traverses across Libra for the next 3 days (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday) it will favor cooperation, compromise, social activities, balance, friendship, and partnership. This is a great time to work with others on a project, finalize a contract, or go out and hang with friends.
On Thursday the moon will enter Scorpio and remain there until Friday. Scorpio increases your psychic awareness and it tends to make people very secretive.

The colors that will enhance the powers of the moon in its respective sign according to the days of the week are:
Monday: Gray
Tuesday: Red
Wednesday: Brown
Thursday: Turquoise
Friday: White


Friday, the Sun will enter Cancer, which is associated to what most people know as the birth Zodiac sign. People born under this sign have the following characteristics:
* receptive
* sensitive
* imaginative
* sympathetic
* kind
* emotional
Their minds are also known to be active, shrewd, and intuitive. They are ruled by the Moon, which influences their emotions and intuitive behaviors. The symbol they are associated with is the Crab, which defines some of their behaviors. Think of the crab with its hard exterior and soft flesh, which recedes into its shell at the first sign of danger.
The part of the body that is ruled by Cancer is the breasts and stomach. They love to eat and some may fight weight gain later in life. Emotional stress and tension may cause them to experience digestive issues.

Element: Water
Stone: Pearl
Metal: Silver
Animal: Shell covered
Flower: Larkspur and Acanthus

BYB: Be Your Best


The Moon continuously moves through the signs of the Zodiac (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces), which creates different energies that influence our daily lives. It usually remains in each sign for about 3 days.

The Moon entered Gemini Monday, June 10th and will remain there until Wednesday, June 12th. It influences outside influences to easily change anything new begun on these days. This can make for an unsuccessful diet or new exercise routine. For the next 3 days just have fun, play games, take shortcuts, and communicate.

Each day is also influenced by a color according to its planetary influence.

Today’s color is ivory. Wear clothing of this color or choose accessories such as your bracelets, necklaces, scarves, or shoes that have this color.

Somedays we just need a little help to “Be Your Best”. Pulling in the energies of the universe to give us a little more confidence and fluidity in our lives is one of the many ways we can be our best.
