Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: October 24, 2016 through October 30, 2016

serenata-by-giovannia-boldini-via-wiki-commons“Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them, we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry, nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.” ― Dalai Lama

What a wonderful quote. Finding gratitude in our hearts for those who are challenging to us may not be easy, but the benefits will resonate with your soul through lifetimes. It is like I said last week on Facebook: “Say what needs to be said and turn back to Love”. Speak truth while holding love as the baseline… no matter.

ANTICIPATION AND REVELATIONS

Monday, October 24, 2016:

Monday begins with a brilliant trine between the extroverted Leo Moon and unconventional Uranus. We start the day with unexpected excitement and anticipation. Unusual and innovative ideas hover around us, waiting for us to pay attention. Follow your curiosity, especially if it is leading in directions that make your heart beat a little faster.

At 4:46 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of intellect and perception, leaves Libra behind to enter the deep, intense waters of Scorpio. Mercury is moving quickly and will only remain in Scorpio until November 12th. This is a good time to dig deeply and investigate what has been hidden from view. Your focus may be intense, very private, and highly perceptive.

Pay attention to unusual, and potentially dark revelations.

At 11:16 PM EDT, the Moon enters efficient, industrious Virgo after being VOC* all day.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:21 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 11:16 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

A LIGHT TOUCH

Tuesday, October 25, 2016:

Normally, the industrious Virgo Moon brings practical hard-working energy to the table.

However, on Tuesday practicality and productivity may be distracted by confusion, misplaced imagination, or even delusions.  At 9:54 PM EDT, Venus, the planet that supports our love relationships and finances, opposes Neptune, the planet that can dissolve what is real in order to develop compassion and inspiration.

You may feel love and romance in the air, but check how much substance is behind it. If you began a love relationship (or some other significant dream) in late March 2016, look at what has developed from it. Money and love can slip through your fingers at a time like this as Neptune dissolves what we hoped would develop into something solid and real. The most significant connections now will be of a spiritual nature. Allow inspiration and allow life to not make clear sense. Hold love with a light touch.

On Wednesday, when the Moon squares Saturn, your feet will land once again on the Earth and you will be ready to face reality.

 

KINDNESS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

Wednesday brings clarity after Tuesday’s confusion. You will have the ability to use the practical Virgo Moon for productivity and efficiency without distraction.

Venus, the planet that represents your dearest values of love and resources, forms a sextile aspect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and good fortune.  Yes, Venus is still engaged with the fantasies of Neptune (from Tuesday’s transit) so you will need to keep your eyes open and awareness fully engaged.

However, opportunities presented now are significant. Do not rush into anything but do not walk away.

Is there a connection to something of beauty that began in the last week of August? Whatever is offered now will require an important step forward during the last week of November.

Bring this energy of expansive love out into the world in any way you are able. Get creative! Take simple actions to show love everywhere you go. Bring coffee to the homeless person on the street. Offer a simple smile to the lonely. Consider how many folks are alone, how many folks long to be seen and acknowledged in even the smallest way. You can make a big difference in the world with your attention and kindness. How many people can you show kindness to on this one day?

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:33 PM EDT until she enters Libra on Thursday morning at 9:51 AM EDT.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

SEEK TRUE ACCEPTANCE

Thursday, October 27, 2016:

The sensitive Moon enters social Libra at 9:51 AM EDT on Thursday morning. The Moon in diplomatic Libra encourages us to engage in cooperation, to create harmonious social situations, and to engage in acts of love and beauty. It may not be easy to make clear decisions, as you are likely to see both sides of each situation you encounter.

Given the choice, seek out and create charm, grace, and beauty.

At 12:16 PM EDT, when communicative Mercury conjoins the mysterious Scorpio Sun, you may need to set aside some of that charm in order to be clear and honest in your communications. Do not be too attached to your own opinions; listen to what others have to say.  Really listen; listen in order to understand the fundamental differences between you.

Share your understanding without trying to make others think as you think. Share in order to better understand each other regardless of how different your views. A commitment to true diversity is not always easy. We really do see the world through different filters. Seek true acceptance.

The Moon is VOC* on Thursday morning until she enters Libra at 9:51 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

REMOVE EXPECTATIONS; SET ASSUMPTIONS ASIDE

Friday, October 28, 2016:

Friday begins with the graceful Libra Moon making direct contact with philosophical Jupiter, expanding your belief and generosity in your intimate partnerships or increasing your enthusiasm in the beauty you bring to the world.  The receptive Moon is also in sweet contact with both Venus and Saturn, offering you the opportunity to enrich and stabilize your closest loving partnerships through diplomacy, romance, or aesthetics.

When the Moon squares Pluto at 4:11 PM EDT, you may temporality lose your balance and encounter unwanted power dynamics.  Don’t engage too directly; allow issues of fear and control to pass over without feeling that you need to jump on any bandwagon.

As the day comes to a close, the square from Mars to Uranus (exact shortly after midnight Friday night – this energy will be prominent on Friday and Saturday) will dominate the evening.  Aggressive Mars square unpredictable Uranus can be angry, impatient, and dangerously assertive.

Keep a clear eye, over the weekend, on what is happening on the world stage as well as how you are managing to keep your own equilibrium solid.  Spend time in meditation; do your very best to develop a wider perspective on the world and a grander view of what is possible. What can you develop in partnerships and love if you remove expectations and set assumptions aside. Make the effort to simply discover, understand, and learn to express your own needs and desires.

STABILIZE LOVE & PERSONAL VALUES

Saturday, October 29, 2016:

Saturday we are presented with a powerful day as we continue working with the erratic energy of dynamic Mars square unconventional Uranus (this aspect was exact shortly after midnight).

The Libra Moon is VOC* for the majority of the day enabling some of the challenges that seem significant in the moment to ultimately pass without result.

At 8:44 PM EDT, pleasure seeking Venus conjunct responsible, stern Saturn may well leave you feeling lonely and unappreciated. However, think of this transit as the beginning of a cycle of stabilizing your most personal values, love, sensuality, and resources. Spend time on Saturday determining what beauty and love you want to bring into the world over the coming year. Plant a seed (as you do at a New Moon) that will have the opportunity to grow into mature love and beauty that will sustain itself over the course of time.

Where (in what house) does 14° Sagittarius fall in your chart? It is there that the seed will be best supported by rich soil and sunlight.

At 10:01 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio bringing us into sight of the New Moon on Sunday.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:10 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 10:01 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

SCORPION NEW MOON – VULNERABILITY

Sunday, October 30, 2016:

Sunday begins with a touch of magic as mental Mercury trine elusive Neptune.  Mercury is the planet of our conscious mind, Neptune the planet of dreams, illusions, devotion and idealism. At this time, you can express the more inspired, spiritual, and compassionate side of yourself. This is a wonderful day for music, poetry, or spiritual explorations.

At 1:39 PM EDT, the New Moon is exact at 7° Scorpio.

Please take time to do a simple New Moon ritual.  You will want to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon and within 24 hours.  This Scorpio New Moon brings powerful energy for the development of the expression of deep emotion. Set an intention regarding your ability to share your most powerful vulnerabilities and to hold, with great honor, the vulnerabilities of your loved ones.

Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual.  Keep it simple.  Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin or create in the upcoming cycle.  What do you want to see increase over the coming month?  Have two candles available for your ritual.  Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time.  Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you want to create.  Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle.  As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together.  At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.
