RELEASE IN PREPARATION

Monday, August 14, 2017:
The Taurus Moon really wants to be calm, stable, and settled today. However, at 10:30 AM EDT, she forms a difficult, challenging aspect to aggressive Mars.
You may encounter anger or deep frustration, remember to not engage that energy and it will pass quickly being only a Moon transit.
Over the next few hours, calm should be restored as the steady Taurus Moon proceeds to make positive aspects to both beautiful Venus and Pluto allowing love and empowerment to flow into your life.

At 9:16 PM EDT, the Taurus Moon forms a difficult square aspect to the brightly shining Leo Sun as we reach the Third Quarter Square between our two Luminaries. You are encouraged to release and let go of what no longer serves your life. This release is important as you prepare for the major new Lunar Cycle coming at the Full Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

 

UNDERSTAND YOURSELF

Tuesday, August 15, 2017:

In November of 2016, Venus joined with Pluto. She is asking that your relationship dynamics enter into a serious conversation. Today, at 7:17 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty opposes Pluto, the planet of deeply significant change and transformation. The conversation that began last Fall now becomes illuminated and you are able to enter a state of understanding.

This aspect could bring about a further conversation about love, money, or other precious resources. Look for clarity as you move forward with your personal values. As you reach toward clarity, do not be surprised to find feelings of vulnerability, fear, and defensiveness. Breathe through the challenge and look clearly at what is laid out before you.

At 10:07 AM EDT, as the Moon enters inquiring Gemini your conversations can begin with genuine curiosity. Much can be learned today that will assist you in more fully developing your understanding related to your beliefs and values.

 

CURIOUS CONVERSATIONS

Wednesday, August 16, 2017:

As the chatty Gemini Moon squares nebulous Neptune at 8:35 AM EDT, it may seem difficult to get the day started or to feel like you’re doing anything more than spinning your wheels.

By mid-afternoon, things loosen up and conversations become interesting and provocative. At 3:30 PM EDT, the active Gemini Moon sextiles assertive Mars and trines lovely Jupiter at 6:35 PM EDT. Engage in conversations with folks you may otherwise avoid. You may learn something new that surprises or even changes your way of thinking.

Enjoy the afternoon, it is the best part of Wednesday.

At 9:40 PM EDT, the Moon opposes heavy hearted Saturn. This may have you head to bed with a difficult reality pressing heavily on your mind. Remember, this is only a Moon transit and will pass before morning.

 

TEMPTATION TO OVERINDULGE

Thursday, August 17, 2017:

At 2:39 AM EDT, beautiful Venus forms a challenging square aspect to optimistic Jupiter. This leads you to confront your understanding of your personal values and the importance of beauty and love in your life.

This transit asks that you question your approach to Tuesday’s opposition between Venus and Pluto. Whatever clarity you reached regarding your values is pushed to greater understanding and acceptance. You will find value in looking into the dark spaces within yourself that you would rather not encounter; do so anyway. You will learn something valuable.

You may be tempted to overextend, overindulge, or overspend on Thursday. This aspect will impact the entire day; it may be a good idea to leave your credit cards at home as freely spending is a common response to this transit, especially if it is highlighted in your personal chart. The over optimism of this transit may balance some of the challenges we are all working through while offering hope for the future.

At 12:13 PM EDT, the Moon enters home loving Cancer. This will settle your mind and open your heart. Spend the evening close to loved ones.

 

TENSION BUILDS; SHOW LOVE

Friday, August 18, 2017:

Do you feel the tension building? We are in the Dark Phase of the Moon as we rapidly approach the great Solar Eclipse which will come to perfection on Monday afternoon at 2:26 PM EDT.

There is much being said about this eclipse and this time it is not unwarranted hype. We are in very intense, transformative times. This is a pivot point and is exposed clearly in the collective dramas of our times. On a personal level, pay extra attention if you have planets or sensitive points near 29° Leo (or the other fixed signs: Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius).

Friday begins with an easy, even gentle edge as the Moon moves through sensitive, loving Cancer. The morning may bring a touch of dreaminess with the involvement of Neptune.

At 4:45 PM EDT, the Cancer Moon opposes Pluto and several hours later, she squares Jupiter. You may want to spend time alone to head off potential family power dynamics. In relating with loved ones and family, be aware of the heightened sensitivity and do your best to show loving compassion, patience, and kindness.

SEXY DATE NIGHT

Saturday, August 19, 2017:

Don’t be surprised when the early morning energies feel a bit disruptive or bring surprising changes that come unexpectedly. The sensitive Cancer Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unruly Uranus at 11:17 AM EDT.

This may be just the push you need to jump start the day! At 1:55 PM EDT, the Moon enters playful, dramatic, and boisterous Leo. This is a perfect night for a party or other social fun engagements. Shortly after midnight, Mars forms a delightful sextile aspect to expand fun-loving Jupiter suggesting a great night for a fun, playful, sexy date.

 

PREPARE FOR CHANGE

Sunday, August 20, 2017:

In the very early hours of Sunday morning, Mars forms an encouraging sextile aspect to expansive Jupiter helping us to regard the future with hope, positive aspirations, and high regard for the future even as we feel the shifting sands upon us.

Sunday brings with it high-energy, excitement, determination, and the desire to take action. We are building strongly to Monday’s Solar Eclipse. Prepare for a profound shift in whatever area 29° Leo falls in your chart… and, of course, the profound movement within the culture is obvious to all of us!

Perhaps, it is time to contact me for a consultation.

In the meantime, enjoy the Sun in playful, warm Leo. At 11:55 PM EDT, use your physical energy constructively and with kindness. Make love before you sleep; you will be glad you did.

 

————————————————————————————–

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transits 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.
