Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: November 24, 2014 through November 30, 2014

SunTree(642x1080)

This is the first full week with the Sun in Sagittarius, the Sign of optimistic expansion and growing wisdom. Can you feel the difference from the deep intensity of the past month while the Sun was traveling through Scorpio? Do you feel drawn to an increased sense of independence and freedom? As we begin the preparation for the holidays we seek that sense of joy and idealism.

Keep in mind that behind these daily shifts and changes, the most powerful cycle of Uranus and Pluto continue to transform the very fabric of our individual lives, our families, the culture we live in, and the species that we are a part of.

In mid-December we will be reaching the sixth of seven Square Aspects between Uranus and Pluto (ongoing since the Summer of 2012). Over the coming weeks we can expect to experience the building anxiety, stress, excitement, and demand for change. Have we grown accustomed to this deep intensity?

Remember that a Gift Certificate for a full consultation from Astrolore would make a wonderful holiday gift! Get it on your wish list! Tell your loved ones!

What a great way to start 2015!

A conversation with Astrolore will help you determine and clarify your goals and aspirations for the upcoming year. Allow the Universal cycles to guide you.

Consider as well those folks in your life who could use clarity and wisdom on their own path forward.

A consultation with Astrolore provides a path to self-exploration, deep wisdom, and understanding.

Monday, November 24, 2014:

The week begins on a quiet note; as you awake on Monday morning, move slowly; go to that early morning yoga class or research that trip you have been dreaming about. Don’t make concrete plans just yet. Rest and dream your way into the day. The busyness of the holiday season is moving quickly upon us.

Move slowly now while you can.

The morning begins with the Moon VOC* in Sagittarius before entering Capricorn at 11:32 AM EST. Once the Moon is in Capricorn the week comes seriously into focus. Now it is time to set the rest aside and get to work! No frantic busyness; a simple engaged focus toward accomplishment. If you are preparing for a Holiday meal on Thursday this would be a great day to get the shopping done and any preparations you can accomplish ahead of time.

As long as your focus begins following the Moon’s entry into Capricorn a lot can be accomplished on Monday.

 

Tuesday, November 25, 2014:

Your best bet on Tuesday is to get to work early, keep your nose to the grindstone, and pay attention to the serious direction your mind is calling from. Mercury conjunct Saturn (26° Scorpio) at 9:36 PM EST demands we take our thoughts, communications, and the way of our minds very seriously.

Maintain a vigilant awareness in your interpersonal communications. Tuesdays’ Capricorn Moon impacts the heavy tension building between Uranus and Pluto. This is a day for study, writing, and developing deep clarity of mind. Difficult communications with others could be deeply empowering if both people involved have the maturity to work with full mindful awareness. If there’s any question about the maturity and ability to maintain awareness, you may want to sidestep difficult conversations on Tuesday.

The Sun entered Sagittarius last week and Mercury will follow in the coming days. By the end of December Saturn will also leave Scorpio behind, entering Sagittarius and offering us a breath of fresh air, expansion, and new awareness. The past few years with Saturn in Scorpio we have learned transformative lessons through exploring some very dark corners of our hearts and minds. When Saturn passes through Sagittarius (12/2014 – 12/2017) we will learn a great deal through open expansion, acceptance of others, higher learning, and possibly even travel. We will learn much as we encounter, accept, and come to love people and cultures much different than our own.

Wednesday, November 26, 2014:il_fullxfull.235199399

Wednesday may be a very exciting day with a touch of dreaminess toward evening. The day begins with the Moon in Capricorn forming a Sextile to Mercury at 10:30 AM EST. The Moon then goes VOC* until she enters Aquarius at 2:22 PM EST.

*Have you taken advantage of the Astro-Start package yet?

If not, this is a good time to do so!

Now, take out your chart and find the houses that hold 12 degrees of Sagittarius and 12° of Aries. This is the area of your life where you can expect to receive flashes of insight and excitement.

A Trine is formed between Venus at 12° Sagittarius and Uranus at 12° Aries. Look for surprising unexpected and exciting connections with others or possibly exciting surprises regarding resources or money. Expect the unexpected; something wonderful coming to fruition. A Trine aspect between two planets is a free flow of energy; Venus speaks of our highest values, Uranus speaks to the need for freedom and excitement. What excitement could you bring into your life and into the lives of your loved ones today? Make it your mission on Wednesday to bring excitement to your life and to the lives of others.

 

Thursday, November 27, 2014:

Thanksgiving!

What are your family gatherings like on Thanksgiving Day? Do you have a traditional Thanksgiving celebration with your family of origin? Do you celebrate this holiday with chosen family rather than the family of origin? The energy of the day supports something less traditional then what we see in Norman Rockwell’s painting.

On Thursday the Moon is in Aquarius forming a Sextile with both Venus and Uranus. If you remember, Venus and Uranus were in a Trine aspect on Wednesday. Today the Aquarius Moon activates the energy between them strongly. Secrets may be revealed, not in a heavy, difficult way, but with excitement and acceptance. We may be finally ready to be seen and to see others clearly.

At 9:25 PM EST Mercury enters Sagittarius. Issues of freedom, self-acceptance, and expansion are highlighted. Again I am reminded of a cartoon I saw many years ago. The centaur (Half human, half horse) stands at a crossroads. The sign pointing in one direction says: ”enlightenment”; the sign pointed in the other direction says: ” Gary’s Party”. Please understand that Sagittarius seeks a higher view, a higher understanding of life. We seek and find expansion, not only through paths of spiritual enlightenment, but also in our interactions at “Gary’s Party”. Seeing the world from an expanded perspective is the work of Sagittarius. Open to that energy even in the midst of your Thanksgiving Celebration.

 

Friday, November 28, 2014:

Friday begins with the Moon in Aquarius. I recommend that you get as much done as possible in the early hours of the morning. At 12:14 PM EST the Moon squares Saturn followed by the Moon being VOC* until she enters Pisces at 5:03 PM EST.

This brings us into a dreamy evening. We are able to set aside our anxieties from the week and enjoy an evening of pleasurable activities.

If you struggle with issues of addiction, drugs or alcohol, make a plan early in the day of how you will spend the evening. With the moon in Pisces’ making Conjunct Neptune having a plan in place will be helpful. The key is that the plan must feed some the same energy/need that the addiction, drugs, or alcohol feed. When we engage in the activity of our addictions we are seeking an escape from the mundane world. Consider ways that you can move away from the harsh realities of life in a manner that is healthier than your addictions. Music is one way to dissolve reality and move out from under the yoke of our disappointments and unhappy circumstances. Poetry is another way, meditation, mysticism, and dreams do the same. A great film can show us another world. Find places to dissolve the boundaries between yourself and others or between yourself and the greater consciousness.

Enjoy the escape, make it a healthy one; enjoy the softening of boundaries between yourself and others. Take someone who is lost under your wing; show them a way of opening to higher levels of consciousness.

 

Saturday November 29, 2014:

Saturday the Moon remains in Pisces throughout the day and reaches the First Quarter Square following the New Moon last week. Consider the seed that you planted at the Sagittarius New Moon last Saturday. As the Lunar Cycle began last, you likely considered the areas of your life that you wanted to expand. Think back to the conversation you had with yourself at that time. Look for an action to be taken on Saturday that will move forward with that desire. Please, take that action. Perhaps the seed planted involved the desire to travel; if so put a date into your calendar for that trip! Better yet, purchase the tickets for the trip! Further your conversation with whoever may be traveling with you. If the seed you planted was the desire to expand your mind into a new study; on Saturday you will want to purchase the books necessary for this learning, or sign up for a class that will move you in the direction you’re seeking. It is important today to take action.

This is not a highly social Saturday, Being on the other side of Thanksgiving you may simply want to spend time alone, reading, taking yourself to the movies, or in someway allowing yourself the freedom to rest in silence. Honor that need in yourself and others.

 

Sunday November 30, 2014:

A good part of Sunday we continue with the emotional state of Moon in Pisces. The Moon makes positive aspects to both Mars and Saturn bringing us a good deal more energy than we had on Saturday.

You will be more able to get chores and activities done that you have not managed earlier in the wee.

At 3:46 PM EST following the Moon Trine Saturn, the Moon is VOC* until she enters Aries at 8:14 PM EST. Just as we are preparing to settle down for the night our emotional nature flares, no matter how sleepy we’ve been all day, we are suddenly wide awake! Here in New England it is clearly winter! Regardless of the cold if you suddenly feel a surge of energy between 8:15 and 8:30 PM EST.

Bundle up!   A walk in the crisp cold air will do wonders to help you to sleep on Sunday night. Aries Moon needs a physical outlet. Engaging your sexual energy would be a great way to manage this evening as well.

At 11:26 PM EST Mercury squares Neptune encouraging us to find a way to communicate our shifting dream. Consider what you believed to be true a year ago. Consider how much change has occurred in the direction you perceive yourself to be moving in. Think about the new Dream, have you fully released the old one yet? Adjustments must be made. Even tiny adjustments in our thinking will ultimately profoundly change our lives.

Make those adjustments now.

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 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 Sagittarius) following a Trine to Jupiter Sunday night at 10:16 PM EST and ending on Monday at 11:32 AM EST when the Moon enters Capricorn.

 

Wednesday, November 26, 2014 Moon is VOC* (is Capricorn) following a Sextile to Mercury at 10:30 AM EST and ending at 2:22 PM EST as the Moon enters Aquarius.

 

Friday, November 28, 2014 Moon is VOC* (in Aquarius) following a Square to Saturn at 12:14 PM EST and ending at 5:03 PM EST when the Moon enters Pisces.

 

______________________________
* 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.

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!

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.

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:

 

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?

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!

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!

______________________________
* 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.
