The Nubian Giraffe by Jacques Laurent Agasse

As I write these daily posts, I focus on the simple day-to-day aspects and cycles that continue playing out between the planets.

I want to remind you that in the background there are bigger cycles that we are in the middle of even as we pass through the daily circumstances of our lives.

In mid-December we will be reaching the sixth of seven square aspects between Uranus and Pluto. Over the coming weeks we can expect to experience this building stress.

If you are in the midst of great change in your life I encourage you to contact me for a full personal consultation. Understanding how your individual life is reflecting these huge transformations can deeply enhance and change your experience of the circumstances you are dealing with.

This week: VOC* Moon

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, November 17, 2014 Moon is VOC* (in Virgo) following a Sextile to Saturn at 6:12 AM EST and ending at 2:30 PM EST when the Moon enters Libra.

Wednesday, November 19 2014 Moon is VOC* (is Libra) following a Sextile to Jupiter at 9:25AM EST and ending shortly after midnight – Thursday at 12:30AM EST as the Moon enters Scorpio.

Saturday, November 22, 2014 Moon is VOC* (in Scorpio) following a Conjunction to Saturn at 12:53AM EST and ending at 7:19 AM EST when the Moon enters Virgo.

 

 

Monday, November 17, 2014:

We begin the week with the Moon in Virgo going VOC at 6:12AM EST following a Sextile to Saturn. The Moon remains VOC* until she enters Libra at 2:30PM EST. The productive part of our day begins at 2:30PM EST. Shortly before 6 AM EST, Mercury forms a Trine aspect to Chiron, the planet that is referred to as the Wounded Healer. This is an excellent morning to work quietly and internally with your own mind, releasing what must be released, and healing what must be healed. Very often the best way to work with our suffering and pain is to simply allow our selves to acknowledge it, to feel it deeply, and to move forward. Healing does not occur when we try to avoid that which causes us pain.

How would we live our lives differently if we understood that our suffering creates the richest space from which we can support and love others? Human suffering is an experience we each encounter. As we learn to manage our own suffering we learn to understand the suffering of others. Empathy is born. Make a point today to notice the people around you. Imagine how much we can help each other by simply opening our hearts, acknowledging our human vulnerabilities, and being willing to touch the lives of others.

 

Tuesday, November 18, 2014:

Tuesday we can anticipate wanting/needing to turn our attention to our duties and responsibilities. This day would be well utilized by working hard and paying attention to accomplishment. Trying to enjoy a day of fun and pleasure would surely backfire. Your energy may be low, but keep focused on the energy that you do have, concentrate that energy on the task at hand. Emotionally this may be a stressful day, as we feel constricted by the conjunction between the Sun and Saturn in Scorpio. The sun conjunct Saturn at 3:49 AM EST. Think of this as the beginning of a new one year cycle of clearly determining the direction of your vital life force; of brining structure to your inner core essence. The Moon is in Libra making harsh aspects to Pluto and Uranus (and Mars in the early hours of Wednesday morning). It is difficult to bring the Libra energy of diplomacy and balance into the transformative demands of Pluto, Uranus, and Mars. Do not dwell on loneliness or depression, instead focus on whatever projects or tasks needs your most powerful energy and drive.

Wednesday, November 19, 2014:

Wednesday begins with the Moon in diplomatic Libra. Following a Sextile to Jupiter at 9:25AM EST the Libra Moon is VOC* until shortly after midnight Thursday morning when she enters Scorpio. This is a very long VOC*!
I find it helpful to know in advance when we have a full day of Moon the VOC*.
Without the awareness these are days that can be very frustrating as we attempt to get things done, nothing we tackle seems to fit… the fact that this VOC* begins with a Sextile to Jupiter brings a sense of opportunity and enjoyment. If there is any way that you can spend this day without the need for accomplishment, without expectations, and without deadlines you will very likely have a lovely day. Read, meditate, go for a walk in the woods, enjoy time with friends and family!
Most of us do not have the freedom to set our schedules the way we might like to. Clearly we must work with the reality of our lives. It is not that things cannot be accomplished during VOC* Moon, it is just that whatever is accomplished today is not going to amount to much in the long-term. Therefore, if you must work, try to spend the day doing routine unavoidable tasks. You should be able to accomplish a great deal quite easily.

 

Thursday, November 20, 2014:

Thursday morning we awake with the Moon in Scorpio, our emotions go deep in contemplation and exploration of the darker corners of our soul. Never doubt that the richest part of who you are is hidden in those darkest corners.
At 9:55AM EST Venus Square Neptune. Last week we talked about the renewal of the dream that began in June. The connection between Venus and Neptune, once again bring the topic of dreams to the table. This is a day that will move your dream forward, but not without a bit of conflict. Consider how your currently developing and growing values are at “cross purposes” to that dream?
There are adjustments that must be made. There is adaptability inherent in this aspect that not only allows for but demands forward motion. Consider where you may need a bit of education, some new learning, in order to move the dream forward. Consider as well that what you learn may very well change the dream.
This dream is not, never has been, and never will be solid and unchanging. Allow yourself to see your world with a soft focus. Nothing is as solid as you may imagine! Remember as well that we are in the dark phase of the moon, it is important to keep an internal soft focus.

 

Friday, November 21, 2014:

Friday the moon is in Scorpio all day and you can expect this to be a very busy day. Mercury Sextile Mars at 9 AM EST.
Your intellectual or mental capacity to advance any project forward is high today. Any conversations or negotiations that need to be had on Friday should be well received. Expect a certain amount of competitiveness on an intellectual level with others. Not in a negative way, but simply the ability to enjoy a good healthy argument between equals. It may be easy to initiate and take advantage of opportunities (involving the intellect) that present them selves. If you work on Monday through Friday to you will end the week on a high note of accomplishment. This aspect will continue into the evening enabling great conversations with intellectual companions and friends. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities that may present themselves on a personal level as well. If something presents itself, simply say yes. Others will also be inclined to say yes, so if you have a question to ask; ask it! If you have an offer to make, make it!

 

Saturday November 22, 2014:

Saturday everything shifts! The most important news is the Sun entering Sagittarius at 4:37AM EST!
We have a brief VOC* Moon, following a conjunction to Saturn at 12:53AM EST. This will have very little impact as the Moon follows the Sun into Sagittarius at 7:19AM EST. This is a powerful day as the Sun and the Moon join together in a New Moon at 0° Sagittarius at 7:32AM EST!
Stay in bed on Saturday morning until 7:19AM EST! That way you will be getting up with both the Sun and Moon in Sagittarius! Don’t stay home on Saturday, don’t try to get chores done! This is not the day to clean the house, do the shopping, or organize your closets! This is a day to take a trip, plan a trip, or expand your mind through education, spiritual discipline, or cultural experience. Think about the Sun and what it provides: warm, light, and healing energy. Since October 23rd the Sun has been in Scorpio, bringing the light and warmth of the Sun to the dark and hidden corners of our psyche and soul. The Sun will remain in Sagittarius until the evening of December 21st. Now the warmth and light is brought to our need to expand our selves through the expansion of our experience!

 

Sunday November 23, 2014:

On Sunday plan to kick back and enjoy the new sense of freedom that Sagittarius brings. Indeed, all the intensity of the current ‘big changes’ (Uranus Square Pluto) is sill bubbling beneath the surface, but for now, please enjoy a simple day of pleasure. What seed for future growth have you planted in the past 24 hours? Take time to consider the seed that you planted, to consider what you want to learn or expand over the coming month. Over the next few days you will want to research the place you want to travel to, the new discipline you want to study, the new ideas you want to develop. Today you can enjoy the excitement of beginning something that you know will engage your mind and move you forward in a way that will benefit yourself and, through you, will enhance all of humanity.
This is a highly positive day with the Sagittarius Moon forming free-flowing Trine aspects to both expansive Jupiter in Leo and unconventional Uranus in Aries. An exciting growth oriented day!
Enjoy expanding the most unusual and exciting parts of yourself and your life! Find a way to bring joy to those around you. Allow yourself the experience of free self-expression; encourage it in others. Picture yourself on stage; what qualities do you want to model for others?
Enjoy!

______________________________
* 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 it’s VOC time, as that aspect holds it’s 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.

*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; times ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: November 10, 2014 through November 16, 2014

The Snake Wagon

The Snake Wagon

 

 

I have been accused of sugarcoating last week’s weather report.

 

Indeed, perhaps I did.

 

In the midst of the ease of last week there has been the building of two major cycles, one particularly is not a Cycle of Ease.

 

When one cycle begins the previous cycle comes to an end. This week we begin a New Cycle between Mars and Pluto, and a New Cycle between and Venus and Saturn.

 

Two cycles end! Two cycles begin!

 

Mars is currently building to a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn and Venus is building to a conjunction with Saturn in Scorpio.

 

A conjunction is when two planets connect in the same degree of the zodiac. This is the time when energies mingle. This is the ending of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle between the two planets involved.

 

The New Cycle between Mars and Pluto begins on Monday at 7:06 PM EST (the cycle ending now began in late November 2012).

 

Mars represents dynamic strength, assertiveness, self-determination, courage, anger, and rage! Pluto represents power, destruction, transformation, annihilation, and rebirth. Consider the incredible strength and power of this combination.

 

Together they have a very dark reputation.

 

Indeed, this combination can be violent and disruptive, a ruthless burst of ego energy! Consider the best use of this energy in your personal life is to work hard on your deepest internal issues without ego attachment. Whatever is changing dramatically in your life; allow the change without attempting to hold on to safety or security. The change demands release. Watch the world and those around you in the coming week.

 

The new cycle between Venus and Saturn begins on Wednesday at 9:01 PM EST (the cycle ending now began in mid September 2013). Venus represents our ability to form partnerships, our personal values, and all that we find beautiful in our world. Saturn represents structure, stability, restriction, responsibility, and integrity. As a cycle between these two planets begins we must face reality in the management of our love relationships and our relationship to our finance. We must understand that respect and integrity are crucial to the development of a heartfelt life.
Please, please share with us how you see/ imagine these energies playing out in your life and your circumstances. Watch the world and those around you in the coming week.

 

There is no doubt that this is a week of great intensity. Keep your eyes open and focus on maintaining compassion and kindness to yourself and others.

 

Be prepared to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder.

 

Due to the ongoing Square Aspect between Uranus and Pluto, Mars also forms a Square aspect to Uranus on Wednesday.

 

I think we can anticipate unexpected changes this week! Things that have been brewing in the background may crash forward into our consciousness. If you keep a journal, look back to March 2013. What intensity entered your life at that time?

 

If I could look at your individual chart I could tell you what area off your life is being reflected in these transits. (CONTACT ME!) for a full consultation!

 

However, consider March 2013; the issues that connect that time to this time may be crystal clear to you. Whatever began then, likely reached it’s full expression in December 2013. We are now ready to begin the process of releasing that which we have held onto, regarding this issue, in order to begin anew in March 2015.

 

Okay! Those are the major high points of the week. There are certainly more of significance.

 

This is a very big week! A game changer! I will be posting the dailies on the Astrolore Facebook Page and will also post them here tomorrow!

 

 

 

This week: The VOC* Moon!
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 a expectation or a 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!

 

 

 

Sunday, November 9, 2014 Moon is VOC* (in Gemini) following a Sextile to Jupiter at 11:22AM EST and ending at 1:52 PM EST when the Moon enters Cancer.
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 Moon is VOC* (is Cancer) following a Trine to Saturn at 5:17AM EST and ending at 2:44 PM EST as the Moon enters Leo.
Friday, November 14, 2014 Moon is VOC* (in Leo) following a Square to Venus at 10:53 PM EST and ending on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at 3:08 AM EST when the Moon enters Virgo.

Good morning. Now that we are on the other side of yesterday’s Taurus Full Moon, let’s consider the significant energies that are building!

The Sirens by Gustave Moreau

The Sirens by Gustave Moreau

 

This week starts out slowly but doesn’t stay that way for long.

 

Monday morning the Moon dreamily passes through Pisces. By midafternoon when the Moon enters Aries life just seems to pick up speed!

 

We can anticipate some stress on Tuesday as the Aries Moon interacts with the most powerful changes that are rolling through our lives. You will do well to keep an eye on potential irritations, but please don’t give them too much attention.

 

Pay attention, instead, to the warm flow of healing energy that exists as Venus and the Sun form a Grand Trine to Chiron, the planet of our deepest wounds and our most profound healing. Allow love, light, and warmth to heal your deepest point of sorrow.

 

Thursday presents us with the creativity of the Taurus Full Moon. It is important to openly express the physical, sensual, and grounded energy of the Earth and human flesh at this solid Full Moon!

 

Get a massage, cook for your loved ones, make physical contact with the earth, and/or with your own or another human body. Touch your lover, your child, or your friend with devotion and reverence.

 

Later in the week (Saturday) Mercury leaves Libra behind and enters the deeper, profoundly personal space of Scorpio. Our minds, thoughts, and communications are heading for deeper levels of profound understanding.

 

 

This week: The VOC* Moon!

 

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!

 

 

Monday November 3, 2014 Moon is VOC* following a Trine to Saturn at 4:04 AM EST and ending at 1:52 PM EST as the Moon enters Aries.

 

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 Moon is VOC* following an Opposition to Mercury at 8:24 AM EST and ending on at 4:33 PM EST as the Moon enters Taurus.

 

Friday, November 7, 2014 Moon is VOC* following an Opposition to Saturn at 11:17 AM EST and ending 8:42 PM EST when the Moon enters Gemini.

 

Sunday, November 9, 2014 Moon is VOC* following a Sextile to Jupiter at 11:22 AM EST and ending Monday morning at 3:38 AM EST.

 

 

 

Monday, November 3, 2014:

 

Allow Monday morning to bring stability to the soft fantasies of yesterday. The Pisces Moon making a free-flowing Trine to Saturn allows us to put some structure right where our emotional nature needs it.

Following the Trine to Saturn at 4:04AM EST the Moon is VOC* until she enters Aries at 1:52PM EST. Keep a low-profile during the VOC*; staying with routine activities will serve you best.

I would expect Monday to be a pleasant day. Following the Moon’s entry into Aries we put our imagination and our dreams aside in order to take action on what is most necessary now.

Venus Trines Chiron at 6:27AM EST and on Wednesday the Sun Trines Chiron; we need to consider these two as one. In thinking about Chiron as our deepest point of pain, please understand that it is within that wounded place that our deepest gifts reside. This week we are able to see the value that is, as compost, beneath our deepest suffering.

When we understand that there is profound value hidden in those hard to touch places we finally see the need to do the deep work of healing. This week that work can come with a simple acceptance of the flow. Work with it. Don’t make it more difficult than it needs to be.

 

 

Tuesday, November 4, 2014:

 

Tuesday is likely to be the most stressful day of the week. The places in our lives, that are changing more rapidly than we can easily manage, are being strongly activated as the Aries Moon connects with Pluto and Uranus. Our patience wears thin as we want to be on the other side of this major Life transformation. The Aries Moon can bring up the energy of a screaming infant demanding that it’s needs be fulfilled NOW! Do what you can to not be that person. Spending time alone using physical energy in a direct strong manner can help.

Don’t worry. The change you require is coming. The best thing you can commit to today is the development of patience and the development of courage. It takes true courage to hold steady and trust; and isn’t that what patience is all about?

Wednesday, November 5, 2014:

 

On Monday we talked about the Sun and Venus trine Chiron. Venus made contact on Monday; the Sun makes contact on Wednesday. Clearly these days are connected bringing this energy to the entire first part of this week.

At 1:19PM EST the Trine is exact between the Sun and Chiron. Allow deep healing to be present in your experience. Allow yourself to open the sore spots within to the warmth and love that is simply offered.

The Moon is VOC* following an opposition to Mercury from 8:24AM EST until the Moon enters Taurus at 5:33 PM EST.

The evening is ideal for good food and good, solid human connections! Go ahead and spend money on yourself this evening (after 4:33PM EST). Seek ways to support yourself in feeling solidly embodied and beautiful within that body!

 

 

Thursday, November 6, 2014:

 

Full Moon in Taurus!

Thursday is a solid day that encompasses the very best of Taurus! We not only have the Full Moon in Taurus on Thursday, but the Moon also makes lovely aspects to Neptune, Mars, and Pluto.

This is a day that you could get a great deal accomplished; or you could choose to simply enjoy the earthy comfort, stability, and reverence of Taurus. There is energy available to dream, to take action, and to express the full power within this stubborn dependable sign.

From a negative perspective we can see Taurus as slow, stodgy, and boring; but where else could you find the patience, the sensuality, and the dependability of Taurus? On Thursday you can open yourself to a powerful sense of reverence. The touch of Taurus is unlike any other, Taurus touches with reverence; imparting comfort reliably.

Full Moon is exact at 5:23PM EST. Howl.

 

 

Friday, November 7, 2014:

 

The Moon remains in Taurus with an opposition to Saturn at 11:17AM EST. Following that Opposition the Moon is VOC* until she enters Gemini at 8:45PM EST.

Friday is a simple day that does not really amount to much. If there are things that must be accomplished make sure to do them before 11:17AM EST. Actually, I would recommend that you get up early and accomplish all that you possibly can before the moon goes VOC*. You could certainly get more done in these few hours than you could in some full days! You may be stubborn and very hard-working!

During the VOC* period you can still get a great deal accomplished if you focus on routine tasks that simply need to be completed. Don’t spend your time on creative projects or any thing that you expect to grow as you move forward. Keep it to the routine tasks so that you will not be disappointed at the long-term results.

With the moon entering Gemini at 8:45 PM EST it could be difficult to get to sleep on Friday night! Okay so it is Friday! This could be a really fun evening to go out with friends! Enjoy the company of others! Don’t worry about getting home early! Time with others; talking, communicating, bring your natural curiosity to the table; the world is a big place to explore! The exploration that begins tonight will carry you through and into a lovely social weekend!

 

 

Saturday November 8, 2014:

 

This is a weekend of curiosity! Don’t expect those around you to be mature, consistent, or patient! Don’t even look for that kind of energy in yourself or others. The Moon is in Gemini throughout the day highlighting restlessness, curiosity, enthusiasm, and alert intelligence!

Consider Mercury as representing the way we think, what we think about, and how we communicate our thoughts. Mercury entered Libra on September 2nd and has been mostly in Libra since (due to the retrograde ze was in Scorpio between September 27 and October 10). At 6:08PM EST Mercury enters Scorpio, pay attention and you will feel the shift as your thoughts deepen and become more private. We may be less interested, in the coming weeks, in utilizing a diplomatic approach. Our thoughts go to powerful and deep places; we want to connect intellectually in a powerful transformative manner. We are more likely to see the importance of our communications, to understand how significant our words are.

Think about the transformation that would occur in your life if the secrets you hold were suddenly revealed; if others could see the deeper contents of your mind. While Mercury is in Scorpio things may be revealed. Be prepared to find out things that have been kept from your awareness. Be prepared for others to discover some of your more private issues or circumstances. Consider the depth of your mind and the minds of those closest to you. So much is hidden even from ourselves. Work to uncover what can bring the truest transformation to your life through your thinking, communicating mind.

 

 

Sunday, November 9, 2014:

 

Sunday continues the weekend’s great social energy! Please take friends out for brunch on Sunday morning! This is a wonderful time to spend with friends and conversation. You can expect the energy to feel light, inquisitive, curious, and fun. However, with Mercury now in Scorpio, the conversations themselves will have deep meaning. There is serious business beneath the play!

Moon in Gemini, Mercury in Scorpio. Playful energy exists within deep conversation!

Following a Sextile to Jupiter at 11:22 AM EST the Moon is VOC* until early Monday morning.

Think back to August 18, 2014. At that time Venus Conjunct Jupiter, beginning a cycle whose purpose is to expand LOVE. On Sunday we come to the First Quarter Square of this cycle. Consider what began in mid-August; ask yourself what action needs to be taken now to push this cycle in the direction of expanding that love! Make sure an action is taken! The full results will be clear in mid January (Venus Opposes Jupiter) when the creative energy between these two is released into the world or into your life.

Show and express love!

The Artist's Garden at Vetheuil by Claude Monet

The Artist’s Garden at Vetheuil by Claude Monet

Not only is this blog post a day late, but this is an abbreviated post as well.

 

In writing this blog I believe my work is to inform you of the changes in the astrological cycles in order to help you understand how to manage significant changes in your personal life.

 

Change is rampant in our lives at this time; my life is no exception!

 

These weekly posts take a good deal of effort and I generally spend the better part of my weekend working on them. This weekend, however, I allowed myself to set the blog post on the back burner.

 

Brenda and I spent the weekend in Portsmouth, New Hampshire enjoying a lovely road trip and beautiful autumn weather!

 

There are two things that are crucially important to me in providing me with the energy I need to get through the cold Vermont winters.

  1. Bonfires! There are few things in the world be my soul more than building a fire, feeding a fire (the bigger the better), and watching that fire die slowly to embers.
  2. The powerful Atlantic Ocean! I need to soak up the energy of the surf against the rocky Maine coast, to breath the salty air, to hear the sea gulls scream.

 

I was very fortunate to encounter more bonfires this year than most, and still have a few planned in the coming weeks!

 

There have been major changes in my personal life that have shifted previously stable routines and with that upheaval I had resigned myself to not seeing the ocean at all this year.

 

That all changed with the opportunity for an unexpected trip to Portsmouth New Hampshire this weekend!!

 

It was such an unexpected treat. However, it didn’t take up my blog writing time!

 

So, please forgive me! It won’t happen often but this was more important than it may seem!! Think of me at the ocean, feeling the wind in my hair, building energy to get through the long cold Vermont winter as I guide you with the cycles of the planets!

 

This will be a simple quick post! Luckily it is somewhat of a simple, quick week!

 

The most significant thing about this week is that we are now on the other side of the eclipses! We are each moving quickly in the direction of our future!

 

Now on to the days of the week! With a quick detour for the times of the VOC* Moon!

 

 

 

This week: The VOC* Moon!

 

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!

 

 

Monday, October 27, 2014 Moon is VOC* following a Trine to Jupiter at 12:18 PM EDT and ending on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 6:03 AM EDT as the Moon enters Capricorn.

 

Wednesday, October 29, 2014 Moon is VOC* following a Sextile to Saturn at 11:01PM EDT and ending on Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 9:52AM EDT as the Moon enters Aquarius.

 

Saturday, November 1, 2014 Moon is VOC* following a Square to Saturn at 2:22 AM EDT and ending at 12:36 PM EDT when the Moon enters Pisces.

UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF YOUR DREAMS

 
A lovely Sagittarius Moon encourages us to explore new realities and encounter new people. Consider what you can learn from the lives that other people live. Our experiences are so varied and rich.

 

We learn so much by asking questions from a place of sincerity and curiosity about how others view and experience the world.

 
In early April 2014, Venus and Neptune began a new cycle. Through this cycle we are learning the deep value of our dreams. Today a Trine is formed between Venus and Neptune. We are able to deepen our own understanding and help others understand the true value of those dreams.

 

Consider that without the dreams, there will be no plans, and without the plans we would not move forward to bring what is most important into our lives.
Open your life with the creativity of bringing your dreams to life. Understand the importance of where you put your mind, your imagination, and your dreams!

On Tuesday the Moon enters Capricorn at 6:03AM EDT bringing the playful nature of the last few days to an end. This is an emotionally serious day, a lot can be accomplished if you work hard and pay attention to the importance of where you direct your energies.

 

The Sun Trine Neptune at 5:48 AM EDT; this is a continuation of the energies of yesterday when Venus Trine Neptune.

 

Again, pay attention to your creativity. Find ways to bring your dreams to life. Remember the importance of your dreams and the attention that you give them! Monday and Tuesday are great days for creative exploration, creative endeavors, and bringing that creativity to the service of bringing your dreams to life.

 

Get out your art supplies; play and create beauty. Relax into those things that expand your awareness; fantasy, music, poetry, meditation! This is a day when something of value, great beauty, and/or possibly money can find its way into your life. Open your heart, watch the patterns, and prepare yourself to encounter the reality of your dreams. Creation is a beautiful thing.

Wednesday would be a great day to spend alone. Life has changed a great deal since summer began! You could use some time alone to contemplate your personal transformation.

 

If you are in the company of others on Wednesday make it a point to be patient and kind. It would be easy to fall into aggravation, impatience, and frustration.

 

The Moon is in Capricorn throughout the day making hard aspects to the closing square between Pluto and Uranus. The Moon also squares Mercury; you will do well to pay attention to your conversations and understand that others may perceive you as harsh or angry.

 

Time alone in contemplation would be a great use of this day.

The moon is VOC* following a Sexile to Saturn on Wednesday night. The Moon enters Aquarius (and being the VOC) at 9:52AM EDT. The Aquarius Moon forms her First Quarter Square to the Sun at 10:49PM EDT.

 

Consider the New Moon Eclipse that occurred last week. If you made an aspiration or plan at the Scorpio New Moon, this is the time to take action on whatever plan you set in motion. This is the time to move forward with that plan. Determine what one action you can take that will support your motion forward on your individual path.

This is Halloween!

 

The Moon is in Aquarius and it is a Friday night! This Halloween go for the costumes that are incredibly unique and unusual rather than frightening. This is a night for the unusual, and wildly unpredictable! You may be surprised to find that folks are feeling rebellious, independent, and ready to move forward in support of something that you didn’t think they would.

 

Determine early on in the day that nothing will surprise you! The most conservative person you know could come out with the most unconventional ideas on a day like this! Enjoy it! Keep yourself above any emotional turmoil; emotional detachment is a very valuable skill that will come easily on Friday. If you pay attention, by the end of this that you understand the usefulness and value of the Aquarian emotional detachment. This is a very valuable lesson!

 

Enjoy Halloween!

 

 

Saturday November 1, 2014:

 

Saturday brings us to a very complex day! We start out with the Moon going VOC* at 2:22AM EDT following a Square to Saturn. At 12:36PM EDT the Moon enters Pisces bringing a passive, sensitive, and mystical feel to the weekend.

 

Indeed this is a complicated day; a day that may bring possibilities and opportunities to the table.

 

Saturday morning could be an ideal time to deliver communications that may be difficult for you to speak or for the other person to hear (Mercury Sextile Jupiter). In delivering those communications keep an eye on any tendencies to exaggeration. Try to keep compassion and caring as the base of these communications. This is likely to be a conversation around letting go of something.

 

Keep your eyes open to opportunities for money and/or love. At 7:08PM EDT Venus Sextile Pluto empowers our sense of beauty and connection. Pay attention to the places where beauty, love, and empowerment intersect. We have the opportunity to bring powerful energies to our love relationships, and to our ability to make money, at this time!

 

As if that weren’t enough for one day we also have Mars Sextile Neptune! This offers the possibility of bringing the energy of strength and action to the support of our dreams and our fantasies!

 

Bringing these powerful opportunistic Sextiles together in this one weekend brings the consideration: (1.) Our expansive open conversations can lead to (2.) Great empowerment in our relationships, which can lead to (3.) the strength of great energy supporting and building our dreams!

 

 

Sunday, November 2, 2014:

 

Settle in for a dreamy Pisces Moon kind of day!

 

Consider that the moon sets the emotional tone for the day. When the moon is in Pisces we feel that we are swimming in emotional sensitivity, Imaginative currents, and a half patent sense of empathy.

 

The boundaries between us dissolved while the moon is passing to place. Our ability to connect with compassion is emphasized. This is a day to find healthy ways to escape the harsh realities of our world. The ways that people do this range from drinking or drugs through all types of addictions, meditation spirituality poetry and music. All of these things seemed to soften our harder edges, and to put us in tot’s with something outside of ourselves. If you can find water nearby; an ocean or lake, spend time there on Sunday. Movies for the theater can also expand our inner resources.

 

It’s easy to lose our selves in fantasy, Imagination, or simply daydreaming. If you start the day with focus on a creative project at the end of today would have something to show for this space of mind. You could also spend the day in mystical spiritual contemplation. Regardless of how you spend the day your boundaries are softened. Enjoy.

______________________________
* 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 it’s VOC time, as that aspect holds it’s 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.
*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; times ideally suited for rest and contemplation.
