Did you see the post I sent out several days ago? In case you missed it, let me give you a quick recap.

I managed to run afoul of the law with some of the images I’ve used. I have tried to choose images that are old enough that no copyright exists but apparently a few mistakes were made. The solution (along with paying the fine) is to stop using any images from the Internet!

I am asking you, my dear readers, to send me original pieces of your artwork that you would love to share with the world! Anything that I use will be credited to you and if I am using them on my blog I will link to your website.

If you have questions or want more conversation, contact me directly!

Onward to the days of this week!

A MIXED BAG OF EXCITEMENT AND LACK OF CLARITY

Monday, May 25, 2015:

Monday certainly gives us a great deal to think about.

On the simplest level, we have the First Quarter Moon; a time to step up and take action on what we want and are working toward. If you planted a seed of sensual intent at the New Moon on Sunday, May 17, now is the time to take action as you move toward the development of the full expression of your sensuality.

The Moon is in Virgo throughout the day allowing us to work efficiently with detail, humility, and discernment.

At 1:09 PM EDT, Venus squares Uranus. On March 15, 2015, Venus and Uranus came together to begin a cycle of unexpected excitement in relationship or our personal values. Look to your journal or calendar to determine what began at that time; in what way were your values awakened?

Remember, Uranus is often called ‘The Awakener’. With this cycle, we ask where we are awakening to a more expansive and unusual sense of beauty. This is the First Quarter square of this cycle, and we must take a definitive step forward to fully develop the deep value of our awakening.

At 7:37 PM EDT, Mars squares Neptune suggesting confusion, lack of clarity, deep suffering, or a spiritual/mystical element to our sexuality. During this cycle, we bring strength and energy to our spiritual path and spirituality to our sexual path. This cycle began in January of 2015 and now asks that we make a commitment and a serious step toward its development. Perhaps we are being asked to develop a tantric sexual practice or simply to write poetry or make music.

Monday is a complicated day with the excitement of Uranus impacting our relationships and our values. At the same time, Neptune brings a soft edge to our sexuality or other use of physical energy. If you’re hearing mixed messages from the Universe, don’t be surprised and be patient.

 

Remember that Mercury is retrograde; so we are working on cleaning up parts of our lives that we have left undone over recent months. We may not feel up to the expectations that others have for us, or even our own expectation of ourselves. Be kind and patience to yourself and others.

 

RESOLVING A PAST ISSUE

Tuesday, May 26, 2015:

On Tuesday, we will still be under the influence of the transits of Venus to Uranus and Mars to Neptune. As with yesterday, you will want to honor both the lack of clarity and the excitement through mindfulness, acceptance and understanding.

The Moon is in Virgo all day forming a trine to Pluto at 11:36 AM EDT and a sextile to Venus at 10:22 PM EDT. This suggests a day of accomplishing practical issues within the context of work and relationship. Even with Mercury currently retrograde, this could be an excellent day for communication with a partner.

You are not going to want to begin a new conversation. However, if a conversation or topic that the two of you have struggled with in the past rears its head on Tuesday, there is great support for coming to new understandings and agreements that will highly support this relationship reaching deeper levels of its potential.

Don’t shy away from significant communications. Yes, be clear you are being heard correctly. Remember, it is not always enough to say what needs to be said, it is also your responsibility to make sure that what you have articulated was heard and understood correctly. Double check what the other person heard.

At 10:22 PM EDT, following a sextile to Venus the Virgo Moon is VOC*until she enters Libra at 5:42 PM EDT on Wednesday, May 27th.

AN EVENING FOR PLEASURE

Wednesday, May 27, 2015:

At 6:36 AM EDT, Mercury conjunct Mars asks us to revisit an argument or passionate communication from late April. Do not seek resolution at this time, there are long-range implications here. For now, seek to understand your own position and the position of others.

You do not need to firmly defend your position; you only need to understand where it is at this moment in time. Consider that your anger or passion is likely triggered by something that has very little to do with the other person.

It will be mid-July before you find resolution and are able to fully begin a new cycle of passion within your thinking and communications.

The Moon is VOC*in Virgo until she enters Libra at 5:42 PM EDT. Wednesday evening should be pleasant for socializing or spending time with a loved one. We want to please and be pleased. Our diplomatic skills shine.

Don’t spend the evening home alone unless you’re involved in a project of creating something of beauty. If you are an artist, you may want a model to work with or a partner to simply keep you company in the studio. Enjoy this evening, it should be a good one.

 

BRINGING PLEASURE TO OTHERS

Thursday, May 28, 2015:

Thursday offers up another very pleasant day! The entire week has so much Neptune energy that even without an exact aspect we are functioning under its influence. Think of rose-colored glasses, the softness of music and poetry, and the peace of deep meditation.

The Moon is in Libra throughout the day and makes lovely, free flowing aspects to the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Gemini. We are deeply curious about those around us. We want to express ourselves; to be seen and to delight in conversation and connection.

It may seem easy to have conversations but do keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde. Remember as well that Libra wishes to maintain peace at all costs. Try to understand what is on the level below words.

 

LISTEN TO THE TREES SING                    

Friday, May 29, 2015:

Friday once again brings our attention to a lack of clarity. Our communications may do best to be of a subtle, indirect, and even intangible nature. The Moon in Libra, very much wanting to please, connects with both Pluto and Uranus reminding us that we have not yet left the challenging transformations of the past few years behind.

At 3:00 AM EDT, Mercury squares Neptune asking us to consider that our learning is coming through more indirect ways into our life. Do you find your worldview or intellect expanding in ways that are somehow impossible to put a finger on or understand with your rational mind? Allow yourself to learn through subtle indirect information. If you go outside today, you may hear the trees sing!

At 4:21 PM EDT, following a square to Venus, the Moon is VOC* until she enters Scorpio early Saturday morning at 5:34 AM EDT. Relax into Friday evening without expectations; listen to music, watch a film, enjoy a poetry reading.

INTANGIBLE DEPTH SEEKS TRUST

Saturday, May 30, 2015:

By the time you awake on Saturday morning, the Moon is in Scorpio, suggesting a day of emotional depth and intensity. The Sun conjunct Mercury at 9° Gemini at 12:55 PM EDT. There does not seem to be much space between who we are and what we think.

Our thoughts may be moving more quickly than usual at this time. With Mercury retrograde and the fact that Mercury rules Gemini, this can bring a great deal of stress to the activity of our minds today.

Don’t neglect your meditation practice if you have one. If you don’t have one, begin one as it will assist you in more ways than you can imagine.

With so much Neptune activity this week, be aware of the situations you find yourself in, particularly if they involve alcohol or recreational drugs of any kind.

Early Sunday morning, the Sun will square Neptune, further highlighting this issue.

Spend time Saturday evening with people you fully trust. We all enjoy some risk-taking in our lives but this is not the night to do that! Stay with trusted friends, go deep in that trust, and allow an intangible depth of passion.

 

SPIRITUAL CONNECTION – MYSTICAL EXPANSION

Sunday May 31, 2015:

Sunday is a powerfully Neptunian day. This will be best used for seeking spiritual connection, love, and mystical expansion.

Emotionally, we want to connect with others and yet we must do this with a very soft touch. Spend time on the water if you can, look for beauty in art and poetry.

This is not a day for sporting events or house repairs. An afternoon movie, music recital, poetry reading, or community meditation, or selfless service to others would be valuable and supportive ways to spend this day.

 

_________________________________________________________
This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Tuesday, May 26, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Virgo) following a sextile to Venus at 10:22 PM EDT, until she enters Libra on Wednesday, May 27th at 5:42 PM EDT.

Friday, May 29, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Libra) following a square to Venus at 4:21 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio on Saturday at 5:34 PM EDT.

 

__________________________________________________________
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: May 18, 2015 through May 24, 2015

Before we start the week, we must prepare for the Mercury retrograde, which begins Monday evening at 9:48 PM EDT. If you have followed my work for any amount of time, you are familiar with my ideas on Mercury retrograde. If you are new to my work and have the expectation of a great deal of negativity during Mercury retrograde, it is time to consider a new perspective.

I love Mercury Retrograde. Are you surprised to hear that? I remember when I was younger and had not yet learned how to manage these Mercury retrograde cycles. I encountered the same difficulties everyone is warned about.

Communications always seem to go wrong. Electronic and mechanical devices of all sorts broke down, misunderstandings occurred at every turn, and I couldn’t manage to get to an appointment on time nor did any of my clients show up on time. These are frustrating situations indeed.

It is amazing that a new perspective, a new attitude, and some preparation have totally changed my experience of Mercury retrograde. I encourage you to take on this new perspective along with the preparation.

Think about the pace with which we live our lives. Most of us have very little time for relaxation, contemplation, or rest. We seem to always be moving from activity, to appointment, to project, to whatever the next thing is. When Mercury is retrograde, we must slow down and look at all the loose ends we have left in our wake as we have rushed forward since the last Mercury retrograde (January 21st to February 11, 2015).

Get out your calendars and journals. Make a list of any projects, important communications, and plans that you have been working on since February 11th. Make a list of all that must occur to bring those projects, plans, and communications to their proper conclusion.

Mercury will remain retrograde until June 11th. Between now and then, your mission is to check off as much from this list as possible. If you begin new projects, plans, and significant communications during Mercury retrograde, you are likely to get tangled up in the difficulties and challenges you may have experienced during previous Mercury retrogrades.

Since I began employing this plan during Mercury retrograde, I am amazed at what a productive time this can be! The whole thing delights me so much that I am nearly in denial that there’s any difficulty at all with Mercury retrograde! :-)

I understand how difficult this change of perspective and new way of managing Mercury retrograde can be! Be kind to yourself as you learn to watch this cycle in a new manner and with new expectations.

 

 

TAURUS NEW MOON; MERCURY RETROGRADE

Monday, May 18, 2015:
The Taurus New Moon is exact at 12:13 AM EDT. By the time we awake on Monday morning, the Moon is newly in Gemini. On an emotional level, we feel a new start and we are ready to begin new communications on well-seasoned issues.

As we encounter new perspectives on old issues, we must be extra careful in communicating those perspectives in a way that others will understand. If you have been dealing with a difficult communication with a partner or loved one and now find a new perspective, be prepared for the challenge of sharing that perspective in such a way that it will be welcomed and understood.

Mercury turns retrograde at 9:48 PM EDT. I hope you made your list of all the things left undone since the last Mercury retrograde in February. Prepare yourself to focus on completing those tasks over this next three weeks. Mercury will turn direct once again on June 11th.

All the tasks that have been set aside and left on the table are now ripe for a new perspective and completion. There is much to be accomplished. Encourage those around you to join you in this new way of experiencing Mercury retrograde.

 

COMMUNICATE WITHOUT MISUNDERSTANDINGS

Tuesday, May 19, 2015:
Tuesday is a day of adjustment. I think we can expect this to be a challenging adjustment in how we communicate, and how we anticipate and understand the communications of others. If there is something you do not understand, in any situation, ask for clarification.

Watch carefully for the tendency to make assumptions. Making assumptions this week will create fertile ground for misunderstandings that will color the next three weeks (and beyond).

You may see exciting new possibilities on some of the issues that have been troubling you for the past few weeks. If these possibilities are starting you in an entirely new direction, steer clear.

If the new possibilities and perspectives are a continuation of what you have already begun, work on clarifying your thinking and communicating it with patience. Be certain that your intention is being heard clearly.

At 1:58 PM EDT following a sextile to Uranus, the Moon is VOC* until Wednesday morning when she will enter Cancer.

 

CREATE PRECIOUS MEMORIES

Wednesday, May 20, 2015:
The day begins with the Moon VOC* and we may feel terribly unmotivated to get moving early. However, at 9:56 AM EDT, the Moon enters Cancer. Other then the continued adjustment to Mercury retrograde, we sail rather smoothly through Wednesday.

This is the final day of the sun in Taurus. On Thursday, the core energy of the Sun, the energy that gives light and warmth to all the planets, enters Gemini as the season moves into a busy time of growth here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Plan on enjoying this final day of sensual Taurean Energy as she so readily feeds Wednesday’s Cancer Moon need for closeness, connection, and love. This is a day to enjoy the sensual delights of shared food, shared memories, and shared physical connection.

Invite family or close loved ones to enjoy a meal together on Wednesday evening. Allow yourselves to reminisce and languish in memories of times and loved ones from the past.

Remain conscious that the love, affection, and pleasure you engage in now is a future precious memory.

 

SUN ENTERS GEMINI; WAKE UP

Thursday, May 21, 2015:
It feels to me that as the Sun enters Gemini, we all wake up!

The Sun enters Gemini at 4:44 AM EDT. Gemini is the final sign of Spring here in the Northern Hemisphere.

As the Sun entered Aries in late March, we certainly woke up to begin the assertive process of Spring. When the Sun entered Taurus, we rested in the sensual pleasures of Spring.

Now, as the Sun enters Gemini, all of our senses are on high alert as we attempt to observe and experience all of the new life pushing forward.

Think of all the new life and growth in this period of time. Take a walk in the woods; how many new varieties of flowers can you count? How many new ideas are percolating through your being?

Mercury (who has just gone retrograde this week) is the planetary ruler of Gemini. Gemini longs to communicate, understand, and make connections everywhere.

There is no question that it is a challenge to have Mercury retrograde while the sun is in Gemini. However, there is no point in bemoaning this fact! Consider this to be an opportunity, pay careful attention to your communication skills and pay close attention to what is being communicated to you from others.

Curiosity is a wonderful gift of Gemini. Keep your eyes open, listen carefully, ask many questions, and do not make assumptions. Make sure your communications are being interpreted as you intend them to be. Double-check everything!

At 9:56 PM EDT, Venus opposes Pluto. Where is love or money demanding that you look very clearly into the very darkest corners of your heart, mind, and experience?

On December 20, 2014, the cycle between Venus and Pluto began. At that time, how was love, your deep values, or some financial situation insisting that you start a new cycle of great depth? Was there some way that money, relationships, or your values insisted on a new and profoundly deep path?

Look at where that path has brought you since its beginning. At this time, you should clearly see what you began and where it has landed you. The intensity of this situation releases its energy as you move forward to assimilate its full growth.

With the Cancer Moon connecting with both Pluto and Uranus, anticipate sensitivity and practice deep kindness. At 8:36 PM EDT following a square to Uranus, the Moon will be VOC*until Friday evening. No internet shopping on Thursday evening!

 

A MATURE SENSE OF SELF

Friday, May 22, 2015:
The Moon remains in Cancer and is VOC*until she enters Leo at 5:42 PM EDT.

Friday is likely to be a day of very little accomplishment. Not a lot will result from your efforts. Give yourself and anyone you encounter a lot of slack, as I can imagine a great deal of frustration as we try to get through to the other side of this day.

We may feel nostalgic and lonely, somehow seeing the past as preferable to where we are today. The intensity of the last 24 hours may leave us concerned that we have made a serious mistake in our lives. Keep moving forward, do not buy into regret, there are many more steps along this path.

At 9:34 PM EDT, the Sun opposes Saturn. This is energy that we feel for a day or so on each side of the exact aspect. Traditionally, we tend to think of the Sun opposing Saturn as being a time of restriction, regret, and hard work.

I am much more inclined to think of it in the context of the cycle between the Sun and Saturn. This cycle began in mid-November 2014. What was the hard work that you took on at that time? In what area of your life were you working to develop a more seriously mature perspective?

This is a cycle of maturing within the self. At this time, it should be obvious whether what you began in November has led you to a place of deeper maturity or not.

You may feel a bit heavy, even a bit depressed, but if you have developed deeper maturity you are on the right path. If your honest answer is no, that you have not developed a deeper maturity, it is time to make an adjustment that will lead you to a more serious space within the self.

BEGIN TO EASE UP

Saturday, May 23, 2015:
The opposition between the Sun and Saturn is firmly with us on Saturday as well. Spending serious time in self contemplation or meditation on Saturday morning should be very helpful.

Do not belabor the point, do not get stuck in feelings of restriction and self-denial. Understand that as humans we all make mistakes and we all learn from those mistakes. Shake off feelings of heaviness with physical activity.

The Moon is in Leo all day. Find fun and playful people to spend time with! Do not avoid the serious self contemplation, do not try to go directly to the fun and play.
You must do the work before the play. However, the playful, demonstrative self-expression of Leo is available once you have done the hard work.

Get it out of the way early in the day and get on with an enjoyable Saturday evening!

 

NO EXPECTATIONS; KEEP IT SIMPLE

Sunday, May 24, 2015:
No chores, no tasks, no expectations! Following a trine to Uranus at 6:50 AM EDT, the Moon is VOC* in Leo. She does not enter Virgo until Monday morning, giving us a very long VOC* Moon under the influence of Uranus!

Sunday is traditionally a day set aside from the rest of the work-week; a day for rest and spiritual renewal. I am not sure that this is a day specifically aligned for spiritual renewal but it is certainly a day for rest, and simple, if not unusual, pleasures.

Plan a day with uncomplicated friends and uncomplicated activities. Keep in mind the clarity that is required in your communications and enjoy working with friends toward simple fun.

_________________________________________________________
This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Monday, May 18, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Taurus) following a conjunction to the Sun (the New Moon) at 12:13 AM EDT until entering Gemini at 5:27 AM EDT.

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Gemini) following a sextile to Uranus at 1:58 PM EDT until she enters Cancer on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 at 9:56 AM EDT.

Thursday, May 21, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Cancer) following a square to Uranus at 8:36 PM EDT until she enters Leo on Friday, May 22, 2015 at 5:42 PM EDT.

Sunday, May 24, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Leo) following a trine to Uranus at 6:50 AM EDT until she enters Virgo on Monday, May 25, 2015 at 4:52 AM EDT.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: May 11, 2015 through May 17, 2015

We begin this week with Mars and the Sun in the sensual, stable sign of Taurus. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we rest in the stable part of Spring. By the end of this week, Mars will have entered Gemini as we move closer to the point where we realize and remember how short the season is.

Before the end of next week, the Sun will follow Mars into Gemini and we become embroiled in our desire to squeeze every drop of pleasure out of this brief season.

Spring by John La Farge

Spring by John La Farge

Here in Vermont, we have been enjoying amazing Spring weather and it still seems that all the pleasure lays ahead of us. Soon, we must face the reality of how short this season is and how important that we enjoy every minute.

As Mars enters Gemini, we feel the increase in the heartbeat of time and we want to explore and experience all that is available to us. Mars is the planet that pushes us forward with assertive strength and drive. Don’t let this time slip away. Enjoy!

 

BALANCE PLEASURE WITH CONTEMPLATION

Monday, May 11, 2015:

Monday brings us to the Third Quarter Moon which is encouraging us to release something in our lives as we prepare for the new Lunar Cycle. This cycle begins with the New Moon on Sunday.

This week we move through the Dark Phase of the Moon. Our time will be spent going inward, spending time alone for contemplation; and becoming softer, kinder, and more pliable in the process.

The Moon is in Aquarius becoming VOC* at 6:35 AM EDT following the square to the Sun. She remains in limbo until entering Pisces at 10:54 PM EDT.

At 10:39PM EDT, Mars leaves Taurus behind to enter Gemini, ushering us into more physical and mental activity. The early part of Spring (Aries) is a time of sudden dramatic growth, and the mid part of Spring (Taurus) is a time of absorbing the energy and the sensual nature of Spring. Now as we enter the later part of Spring (Gemini), our activity and desire to participate in everything increases as we realize we must enjoy this time and these abundant pleasures before they are over.

It is important to balance your seeking of pleasure with inward contemplation; each will support the other.

 

REALITY WITH A SOFT FOCUS

Tuesday, May 12, 2015:

Tuesday should feel like a softer day as the Moon moves through Pisces, gently connecting with Venus and Neptune. Our imaginations are activated, and our rose-colored glasses are firmly in place as we encounter a gentle sense of loving kindness.

However, the downside is that we may want to avoid the necessary conflicts or rough conversations that must move forward.

We want pleasure and a soft touch and yet reality requires that we address certain issues at this time.

This is a balance that must be worked with on Tuesday. Don’t avoid what at first seems unpleasant. Enjoy the soft focus even as you look clearly at the reality and speak your truth. If you are able to do this with compassion and honesty, you have navigated the potential conflict well.

Encourage others to speak what may not be easy for them as well. Accept what they have to say as their own truth; hear them out without defensiveness. Take it in and respond with kindness.

 

CONTEMPLATION & ACCEPTANCE

Wednesday, May 13, 2015:

On Wednesday, we likely sink even deeper into soft fantasy. If you don’t absolutely have to work, stay home. This is a day to relax, sunbathe, listen to music, meditate, or daydream.

Crocus, snowdrops, and checkered lily bloom on an alpine meadow by Else Bostelmann

Following a sextile to the Sun at 12:55 PM EDT, the Pisces Moon is VOC* until Thursday morning at 1:14 AM EDT when she enters Aries.

As we are in the Dark of the Moon, the Moon is also encouraging us to spend time contemplating and investigating the inner terrain of our hearts and minds.

Pisces is not simple energy to understand. It is unfathomably sensitive, watery, and deep. It represents our consciousness; not the contents of consciousness but consciousness itself.

Understanding Pisces and Neptune, the planet of its ruler-ship, can be tricky. I think of Pisces as the rose-colored glasses we put on to avoid what is difficult. Pisces represents softness, lack of clarity, dreams, and suffering.

On Wednesday, it may be hard to feel that our feet are firmly on the ground. Don’t try to force them today. Allow the softness and the lack of clarity. Go inward for contemplation and full inner acceptance.

 

ENGAGE COURAGE

Thursday, May 14, 2015:

At 1:14 AM EDT, the Moon enters Aries, ushering in a day with more energy than we have had recently. We don’t want to waste time, we don’t want to ask permission; we want what we want simply because we feel it is our due. We don’t want to be slowed down by anyone and we don’t want anyone getting in our way.

This is a day to open our eyes fully and act with bravery and courage; a day to step forward for our own self-interest. Make sure your self-interests are not destructive to others and accept them for what they are.

Thursday can be problematic if you try to work with others; work on your own and you can move forward. Utilize physical strength and endurance; don’t let fear stop your movement forward. Engage courage.

 

ADJUSTMENT TO REALITY                       

Friday, May 15, 2015:

Another day with the Moon in Aries and we continue on a path of self-interest and the development of courage. At 2:02 AM EDT, Mars opposes Saturn.

Look to the start of the cycle between Mars and Saturn in August of 2014 at 17degrees Scorpio. Consider the development of some serious physical discipline or use of energy that began at that time; perhaps a new yoga class, a new sporting activity, or even a new sexual relationship.

Was a next step taken regarding the new discipline in mid-January? Now it becomes clear what the full expression and the full reality of what that discipline has become. Are there adjustments that can be made? Was it a worthwhile use of your precious energy? What have have created for yourself in this cycle of structuring our most active energies?

Consider that this cycle often relates to our sexual relationships or our sexuality in general. It may also refer to strong physical endeavors, sports, or something else that utilizes your physical body in a powerful way. Consider how you want your energy or sexuality to express itself in August 2016 at the start of the next cycle between Mars and Saturn.

We may feel that something is restricting us at this time; as though the cycle didn’t play out quite the way we have wanted/expected. Look clearly at the reality, don’t sugar coat it. Notice what adjustments can be made that will move your sexual energy in the direction you would like to see for your future.

The Aries Moon connects with both Pluto and Uranus early Friday morning following the conjunction to Uranus at 8:03 AM EDT.

The Moon is VOC* until 3:02 AM EDT on Saturday morning when she will enter Taurus for steadfast stability for the weekend.

FREE YOUR FANTASIES

Saturday, May 16, 2015:

Saturday morning, we wake up with the Moon in Taurus. This brings us to a fabulous weekend for spring yard-work or gardening.

Connecting with the earth in whatever way speaks to you is the very best use of this energy. Work with what is stable, solid, and dependable. Dig a ditch, plant a garden, cook a meal!

At 2:48 PM EDT, Venus trine Neptune suggests that within the solid stability of Taurus there is a deeply resonating dream coming to the forefront. You may not need a solid focus, but keep the dream alive and your internal soft imagination humming.

Create beauty in your world; make that yard and garden fill your soul with tender joy and unfocused beauty.

Allow fantasies freedom and free reign to join your reality.

 

 

NEW MOON: BEGIN A CYCLE OF SENSUALITY

Sunday, May 17, 2015:

Technically, the Taurus New Moon does not occur until Monday morning approximately 13 minutes after midnight.

But I don’t want to wait to talk about it! I think it is important to think about this now. Consider the opportunity the Taurus New Moon brings. This is a time when we are asked to begin a new relationship to our senses, to the sensuality inherent in our bodies, and the enjoyment our senses offer us.

Monday morning, allow yourself to observe and experience a new relationship to your body, your sense of beauty, and your own deeply internal values.

Along with Mercury turning retrograde, next week heats things up, prepare for the ride!

This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Monday, May 11, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Aquarius) following a square to the Sun at 6:35 AM EDT until entering Pisces at 10:54 PM EDT.

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Pisces) following a sextile to the Sun at 12:55 PM EDT until she enters Aries on Thursday, April 14th at 1:14 AM EDT.

Friday May 15, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Aries) following a conjunction to Uranus at 8:03 AM EDT until entering Taurus at 3:02 AM EDT.

__________________________________________________________
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects I consider: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I am working with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: May 4, 2015 through May 10, 2015

As we come closer to the next Mercury retrograde (May 18th – June 11th), there are a few things I would like to talk about.

With the proliferation of astrological information on the internet, it is easy to get carried away with every astrological whim that comes along. Mercury retrograde is always a popular topic.

For many years I have tried to move the conversation of Mercury retrograde in a more positive direction; to help folks learn to work with the energies available rather than simply seeing it as a time of negativity.

There has been a move in a more positive attitude toward Mercury retrograde in many quarters, although we still hear plenty of fear and drama.

One thing I haven’t discussed until now is the issue of the Mercury retrograde shadow. This refers to the time (before the retrograde period) when Mercury reaches the point that it retrogrades back to; and the time following the retrograde period until it reaches the point where it went retrograde in the first place.

Example:
This upcoming Mercury retrograde starts on May 18 with Mercury at 13° Gemini; Mercury will turn direct on June 11 at 4° Gemini. The Mercury pre-retrograde shadow begins when Mercury hits 4° of Gemini (Monday May 4th); the post-Mercury shadow will last until June 26th when Mercury reaches 13° Gemini.

I have watched the issue of the Mercury retrograde shadow for many years and am finally ready to say that I don’t find any significant value in fussing over this shadow business.

Bottom line: I think we are just fine dealing with Mercury retrograde without worrying about the shadow period.

I understand that a great many excellent astrologers do work with the shadow. I don’t. There are so many issues in astrology and I feel the need to choose those parts that seem the most significant and leave the rest aside!

So, from my perspective, Mercury slows down a few days beforehand, and turns retrograde on May 18th at 13° Gemini and turns direct once again on June 11 at 4° Gemini. That is all we need to concern ourselves with. So give yourself a rest! Don’t worry about Mercury retrograde until it gets here!

Now, onward to the week!

 

PRACTICE KINDNESS AND OPEN COMMUNICATION
Monday, May 4, 2015:
Get out your journal and go back to July 24, 2014, give or take a day or two. In what ways was your life circumstances or the essence of your being expanding at that time?

In mid-November, what action did you take to push that expansion forward? In early February, you probably saw your path fully illuminated, the creative expression released. Now with some time to gain perspective, a bit of realism may have you questioning the path you so passionately embraced. This could easily feel somewhat terrifying as you have probably put many eggs in that one basket!

Do not worry, but also do not deny the questions that are being raised. Take a clear look at the reality of where that seed planted in late July has brought you. Realistically consider the adjustments that must be made. Do not throw the baby out with the bathwater!

If you pay attention and talk with others, you will find that many people are questioning the direction that they so enthusiastically embarked upon last summer! Don’t worry; the cycle continues to unfold with new surprises and adjustments ahead.

Monday’s Moon in Scorpio opposes Mars at 9:50 PM EDT. Be aware of your tendency towards unhealthy, passive aggressive communications.

Practice openhearted kindness and clear direct communication. This may not come easily and is best developed through continual practice.
Pay attention; be kind.

 

EXPAND YOUR PERSPECTIVE
Tuesday, May 5, 2015:
At 7:13 AM EDT, on Tuesday the Moon enters Sagittarius. Our hearts expand and we seek to enlarge our perspective of our world. We long for new experiences.

With the Moon conjunct Saturn at 12:37 PM EDT, there is a challenge to our ability to fully understand this new perspective. Tuesday would be an excellent day to challenge your understanding of different cultural perspectives and of those who live in your midst but have a very different worldview.

Given where we find ourselves at this time, it is important to pay attention to your understanding of racism within yourself and within the culture. It is difficult for many of us to look directly at our own deep-rooted subconscious attitudes and prejudices.

We must open our hearts and minds to understand the depth of disparity between our own experience and the experience of others.

Talk openly and with true, honest curiosity and compassion to those who have a very different view from your own. This open exploration of our inner attitudes is imperative to the future of all humankind.

 

OPEN YOUR MIND TO UNDERSTANDING OTHER WORLD VIEWS
Wednesday, May 6, 2015:
Wednesday offers us a powerful day indeed! The Taurus Sun makes a beautiful trine aspect to Pluto early on Wednesday morning. Think back to the first week in January 2015. Was there an occurrence or a circumstance at that time that felt like the beginning of deep empowerment and understanding?

This week, (particularly on Wednesday), it is good to consider what began at that time and how you are moving that issue forward in your life.

Keep the results clearly in mind. We are getting close. The full illumination of this cycle comes in early July. What is it you need to do now to push for that full expression to be exactly as empowering as you know it can be?

On Wednesday, the Moon in Sagittarius makes lovely aspects to expansive Jupiter and quirky unusual Uranus. Contemplate all the ways in which your life could change and expand through the exploration of other cultures and coming to understand people from other worlds.

 

WORK LATE; ACCOMPLISH MUCH
Thursday, May 7, 2015:
We begin Thursday with the Moon still in Sagittarius going VOC* at 1:52 PM EDT (following an opposition to Venus). She enters Capricorn at 2:17 PM EDT. The afternoon then becomes more serious. You may want to stay at work late, as it is easy to remain focused on administrative or organizational tasks.

If you have a big project you are working on, Thursday afternoon is great for working on the foundation of that project.

There is much we each need to get done before Mercury goes retrograde on May 19th. This would be a good afternoon for setting the stage to make sure nothing slips through the cracks.

At 6:51 PM EDT, Venus happily enters Cancer where she will remain until June 5th. During this time, we may notice our attention turning to beautifying our home, spending time with family, sharing meals and memories.

We notice an increased appreciation for our loved ones and the nurturing care that we can offer. Look for ways to show love and care from the heart. Remember, with Venus in Cancer love is shown in maternal ways; prepare a meal; love and food are deeply connected here.

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT AND AMBITION
Friday, May 8, 2015:
We end the work-week with serious energy to get things done; our work ethic is strong. It is best to work alone today, if at all possible.

We don’t need the distraction of others as we push forward. We should feel solid and grounded and yet aware of the full ramifications of the direction we are pushing in.

As the Capricorn Moon once again challenges the energies of Pluto and Uranus, we cannot deny the stress we feel. Working alone should allow less conflict to darken your door. Much can be accomplished on your own with focus and dedication; if you must work with others use the stress between you as a way to expand awareness.

Maturity and simple communication skills will go a long way. Revel in accomplishment and ambition!

 

DISSOLVE BOUNDARIES; STEP FORWARD
Saturday, May 9, 2015:
What was the dream that began in late March 2015? At that time, we many have received the mere glimmer of a dream that we have since been exploring.

At 12:08 PM EDT, Mercury squares Neptune asking that we take a concrete step toward developing that dream. When we are dealing with Neptune, we cannot expect direct clarity. Neptune is meant to dissolves boundaries.

Noon: Rest by Vincent van Gogh

Noon: Rest by Vincent van Gogh

Think about the lack of boundaries within our dreams. Don’t try to reason the direction or the step that must be taken. It must be felt within your heart or simply sensed internally. If you are still unclear, take time in meditation to allow a pathway for simple awareness.

The Moon is in Capricorn going VOC* following a trine to Mars at 4:34 PM EDT. This is another short VOC* as the Moon enters Aquarius at 7:21 PM EDT.

Enjoy an evening of unusual pleasures and new companions. Allow yourself to move forward with full confidence in your own individual path. This is a very individual path, it is important that we not allow others to dictate our step or direction.

 

MOTHER’S DAY: AN EXPANDED VIEW
Sunday, May 10, 2015:
Sunday is Mother’s Day. This Mother’s Day does not hold the energy we may expect, we may see the whole issue from a different perspective. This is not the day where you will be satisfied to shower love and affection on one individual mother.

Yes, of course you want to take your mother out to breakfast and show her your full appreciation for a lifetime of caring for you. But this Mother’s Day is bigger than that. This Mother’s Day take the time to show appreciation for all folks who dedicate their lives to raising healthy, intelligent humans.

This is about more than your individual mother; it is about everyone who has dedicated huge amounts of energy to care for and raise children. I think we all know that parenting is the hardest job in the world and yet millions of people undertake this amazingly honorable work.

Sunday, once you have fulfilled your duties of honoring the value of parenting, you will want to continue on your own path. Explore new ways of seeing and experiencing the world around you.

This Week’s Scorpio Full Moon Shows us the Nature of Our Desire

I am delighted to be back!

Again, I apologize for not having the weekly posts here on the blog for the past two weeks. I hope you have read the daily posts on Facebook.

In case you are wondering; Brenda is working hard on her recovery. We are both focusing on consistent exercise and making healthier food choices. ;)

I have moved out of my Burlington apartment and am now living in the northern wilderness, very close to the Canadian border! I am enjoying the quiet, the wildlife I see along the road, and the owls and peepers I hear at night.

As much as I have watched the lives of my clients transform over the past several years, I was not anticipating such total transformation in my own life. Somehow, I believed that major life transformation was the province of youth or of those not obsessively watching the planetary cycles! Ha! What a silly thought that was!

The early part of this week looks pleasant and relatively uncomplicated. As we move toward the weekend, we may encounter some stress and intensity of emotion.

Sunday brings us to a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio, illuminating our desires and demanding that we work within the full reality of our situation. The full reality is never as easy to see as one may imagine; take time to consider the perspective from which you view the world.

As an exercise, consider your situation from the perspective of others. Working with a multitude of perspectives enables us a clearer view of reality.

 

SOCIALIZE WITH AN OPEN HEART
Monday, April 27, 2015:

The week begins with the Leo Moon square Mercury in Taurus at 10:13 AM EDT. Our stable thought processes may struggle with our emotional need to engage in high drama and playfulness.

Between 10:13 AM EDT and 9:08 PM EDT, the Leo Moon is VOC*, offering us time to move slowly into the week. It is best not to schedule anything of future significance during this time.

Good conversation along with a playful attitude is available today. Join your colleagues or coworkers for a cocktail or coffee after work. Simple socialization and openhearted friendliness without an agenda is a great way to utilize the energy of this day.

 

GIVE YOURSELF TO ACCOMPLISHMENT
Tuesday, April 28, 2015:

On Tuesday, we are ready to settle into some serious work. The Moon is in hard-working Virgo, allowing us to focus on the details of any project we are involved in. Take advantage of this push toward accomplishment as early in the day as possible.

The Virgo Moon is supported by Saturn early in the day and by the Taurus Sun in the afternoon. Plan on getting a good deal of work accomplished by mid afternoon.

At 4:00 PM, the Virgo Moon opposes Neptune and we may lose focus and simply need the evening hours for dreamy consideration of the softer side of life. Watch a good film tonight. Please don’t waste time on bad television; find a film that will detach your mind from its most solid moorings and allow your imagination to soar.

 

GATHER INFORMATION TO REACH YOUR DREAM
Wednesday, April 29, 2015:

In many ways, Wednesday is going to be a simple mirror image of Tuesday. Again, we start the day off with a great deal of energy that can be used toward accomplishment and working with details.

I can imagine our work feeling inspired and even infused with empowerment, assertiveness, and drive. You will not want to waste this energy. Find the projects that most need motivation and drive and put your attention on those!

At 7:10 PM EDT, the Sun sextile Neptune. The cycle between the Sun and Neptune began the last week of February 2015. What dream did you choose to begin at that time?

Consider that dream; spend time gathering information, and researching what your next steps toward it will be. The requirement today is not in action but in gathering the information that will enable serious action at the end of May.

 

EASE OF COMMUNICATION
Thursday, April 30, 2015:

Thursday begins with the Moon in Virgo becoming VOC* following a trine to Mercury at 8:24 AM EDT. This is a brief VOC* as the Moon enters Libra at 10:02 AM EDT. This is another day that would be good for socializing after work. Others should be feeling good about their accomplishments and with the diplomacy of Libra. This is a great time for social bonding.

At 9:59 PM EDT, Mercury enters its home sign of Gemini where it will remain until July 8, 2015. If that seems like a long time in one sign, it is! Yes, Mercury will be retrograde in Gemini between May 18th and June 11th. Get this information on your calendar right away, so that you can prepare ahead of time!

For now, enjoy Mercury in Gemini. Mercury is the planet that represents what we think about, our skills and struggles with communication, and our thought processes in general. Mercury loves to be in Gemini where it can think and process information more easily than in any other sign.

 

APOLOGIES MAY BE IN ORDER
Friday, May 1, 2015:

Friday, as the Moon passes through Libra, she once again encounters both Pluto and Uranus. We are reminded of the struggles and challenges we have encountered in the past few years. This is an excellent day to take stock of the mistakes you have made along the way. Consider any toes you may have stepped on throughout the period of your most recent life transformation.

Perhaps, you have left others feeling disregarded, disrespected, or uncared for as your own needs have demanded your focus. Consider any amends or apologies that may be in order.

The apologies themselves can wait and be made at the next New Moon (May 17). Determine who those apologies need to go to, make the commitment to do so, and get it on your calendar.

SEEK INTENSE EMOTIONAL CONNECTION
Saturday, May 2, 2015:

Saturday begins with the Moon still in Libra. She makes a beautiful trine aspect to Venus at 10:04 AM EDT, followed by a full day of the Libra Moon VOC*. This is a lovely day for simply enjoying your life.

Hang out in coffee shops with friends, spend the day in a museum, or watching people on the street. This is not a day for shopping or for trying to accomplish anything for the future. This is a day for simple enjoyment. Don’t complicate it!

At 9:47 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio bringing us to an evening of intense emotional connection, deep sexual pleasure or intensification, or profound psychological probing. If you spend Saturday evening/night with someone you do not know well, this will bring your connection to a profound depth quite quickly.
SCORPIO FULL MOON ILLUMINATES OUR DESIRE NATURE
Sunday, May 3, 2015:

Sunday brings us to the Full Moon in Scorpio as we experience sexual and emotional passion and connection. This is not the day to spend with folks you want a light or casual connection with. There is far too much emotional intensity within the environment of the day.

Spend time alone looking into your own deep psychological patterns or connect on a profoundly deep level with others.

Early Sunday morning, at 4:34 AM EDT, Mercury opposes Saturn. If you keep a journal or are able to remember the serious consideration or conversation you began during the last week of November 2014; now you are able to see exactly where that conversation or consideration has brought you. The full energy of that conversation is now fully revealed and that creative expression is now released.

This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.
Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Monday, April 27, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Leo) following a square to Mercury at 10:13 AM EDT until entering Virgo at 9:08 PM EDT.
