ENERGY FLOWS TO YOUR DREAM

Monday, June 27, 2016:

We begin the week with the Moon in Aries forming the Final Quarter Square to the Sun at 2:18 PM EDT. This places our needs and desires at cross-purposes to each other.  At a fundamental level, there is a sense of wanting our familial relationships close by for comfort and love. However, at the same time we sense the need for pushing forward on an individual path that will take us further from those familial relationships. Balance between these two can be a challenge, accept that challenge and utilize courage to work with it.

At 9:52 AM EDT, Venus forms a lovely trine aspect to Neptune. This is a highly romantic aspect, although not necessarily the romance of personal love. It could show up regarding a dream, a fantasy, or a spiritual aspiration that holds that same energy of soft love.

Think back to March 20th – give or take a day – of this year. What began at that time? Was it a dream, a fantasy, a new acceptance or awareness of spirituality, or was it, in fact, a romantic love relationship? Whatever began at that time very likely came to a point of requiring attention and effort on (approximately) June 3rd.  Now, we are on the part of the path that is clear sailing. We encounter a free flow of energy occurring between these two planets that will support you as you reach the full illumination of the dream or awareness in mid August.

The important thing here is to trust where you are in the process, allow the gift that is offered in the form of opening your spirit and heart to love and you are over-arching dream.

 

ALLOW ANXIETY OR POWER DYNAMICS TO PASS

Tuesday, June 28, 2016:

The only major aspects in the heavens on Tuesday involve the Aries Moon. Therefore, even the most difficult challenges won’t stick around long if we allow the energy to simply pass by without attaching ourselves to a particular agenda.

At 7:14 AM EDT, the Aries Moon squares Pluto. This suggests the potential for a volatile morning. Perhaps a run, bike ride, or a trip to the gym would be helpful to release this energy. If you choose not to move the energy in that way, make the effort to simply not engage with frustration and power dynamics. This challenge will pass quickly if you do not feed it with drama and upset.

At 8:12 PM EDT, the Moon conjunct Uranus offers more highly intensified emotional energy. If your chart is predominantly of the Water or Earth elements (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces), make an effort to show restraint regarding impatience and aggravation toward others. If your chart is more highly balanced in the Fire or Air elements, this can be a very innovative and exciting evening.

If you notice yourself feeling excited, enjoy the ride. If you notice anxiety or even fear arising, understand that if you can hold steady it will pass rapidly.

This is a passing influence; neither the anxiety nor the excitement will last long. Give everyone, including you, some slack to make mistakes.

 

MARS TURNS DIRECT; RELIEF

Wednesday, June 29, 2016:

Wednesday morning the Moon enters Taurus at 6:03 AM EDT. This settles us down and brings our focus to simple pleasures and practical effort. We are deeply aware of our desire to build a life that works smoothly without drama. Mercury leaves its home sign of Gemini to join the Sun and Venus in Cancer. Venus will remain in the emotional sign of Cancer until July 12.

While Mercury is in Cancer, our thoughts are based on feelings more than actual thoughts; communications become personal as we nurture others with our words and conversations.

We have been waiting for this day for a while now! I am delighted to finally be here! At 7:38 PM EDT, Mars having been retrograde since April 17th finally turns direct at 23° Scorpio. Now, we must consider what we have learned over the past 2.5 months regarding our use and experiences related to assertiveness, aggression, anger, and even violence in our lives.

In the coming weeks, we will continue to contemplate the most authentic ways to use powerful, masculine energy with integrity. Watch this learning as it reflects in our culture as well as our personal lives. The current conversation about gun control issues is one obvious place this issue is playing out.

The experiences of Mars retrograde have past and now we learn from what we have encountered.

 

A LOVELY MORNING

Thursday, June 30, 2016:

Thursday begins with high hopes and the potential of love and sweetness. We start the day with a Grand Trine aspect in stable Earth signs with the Taurus Moon forming trine to both Pluto and Jupiter along with sextile aspect to Venus and Neptune. This is a prescription for pleasure, enjoyment, and personal growth.

By evening, the tides turn as the Moon opposing Mars at 8:18 PM EDT. Slow down and allow your temper and impatient to dissipate. Once that passes, the atmosphere of conflict will very likely continue into your dreams as Venus opposes Pluto at 11:31 PM EDT. Jealousy, power dynamics, and possessiveness may arise.

Consider that you may be projecting your own insecurities onto your relationship(s). Go inward for this contemplation. Go to sleep early, sleep late on Friday and perhaps you can process this challenging transit within sleep and dreams.

 

ENJOY THE LOVE

Friday, July 1, 2016:
Friday loosens up the tight knot of inflexibility and intensity that was with us through the later part of Thursday. At 7:45 AM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini where our minds and hearts open to flexibility, simplicity, and friendliness. This is not a day for heavy conversations or deep introspection. This is a day for light friendship and pleasant explorations.

At 3:18 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of love, forms a sextile aspect to Jupiter expanding possibilities for love and sweet connections. Show your appreciation for others (and you will likely feel a great deal of it) with words and deeds rather than with gifts. It would be far too easy to spend more than is advisable.

You would be ill advised to do any shopping on Friday unless you have planned the purchase ahead of time. Pay attention to all the areas of your life that you cannot afford to overindulge in. Make sure before you enter any situation that may elicit this issue that you know exactly the lines and limits you want to stick with. It is so easy to overdo it when Venus and Jupiter join forces. ☺ Enjoy the Love!

SATURDAY NIGHT DANCING

Saturday, July 2, 2016:

Saturday’s Gemini Moon is actively encouraging us to explore all kinds of internal and external conversations, people, and ideas. Do you have plans for this weekend? If not, don’t sit at home waiting for the Gemini Moon to do its magic without your making the effort. Follow curiosity; seek out people, places, and situations that engage your most inquisitive nature.

Brunch, followed by a road trip with friends would be ideal. Watch your tendency to overspend when you are out with others.

If you stay up late, you may encounter delightful and unexpected surprises as the Gemini Moon sextile Uranus at 11:43 PM EDT. Perhaps, this is the Saturday night to head to a dance club and enjoy play and movement.

 

THE RESULTS OF A DREAM

Sunday, July 3, 2016:

Whatever you encountered at that dance club on Saturday night must have been beneficial as Sunday begins with a trine aspect from the Sun to Neptune (due to Neptune’s retrograde this aspect will be repeated one last time on November 1st). We may feel that we are under a spell of mystical pleasures and overwhelming compassion and love.

When the Moon enters Cancer at 9:20 AM EDT, the desire to nurture and love increases. It is important to find an outlet for this deep kindness. Babies, puppies, lovers, & friends are all easy recipients; allow tenderness to flow.

Whatever dream began in late February is now flowing its fullness into your heart. Accept this soft transcendent sensitivity as a natural outcome of allowing the dream to take root in late February.  A new dream (or a renewed version of this one) will begin in early March 2017. Go ahead; begin to plan for that now.

__________________________________________________________

* 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, textiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
