Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: October 30, 2017 through November 5, 2017

“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”

DEEP MIND; OPEN HEART

Monday, October 30, 2017:

With three planets in the private, introspective sign of Scorpio, we find ourselves deep in the season of mystery and depth. Work with the depth of your thoughts this week as Mercury, the planet of the mind, leaves Scorpio behind on Sunday to enter Sagittarius. Mercury in Sagittarius helps us gain perspective on the depth we are currently attempting to understand. For now, allow your thoughts and communications to work in the private depth of transformation. Consider where in your own chart Scorpio resides and know that you must go deep in contemplation in this area of your life.

If you want clarity, consider scheduling a consultation with me (Laurie of Astrolore).

Monday actually presents a lovely, dreamy day. Your intuition is likely to be far more powerful than your ambition. It may be a good day to stay home from the office and give yourself some alone time for meditation or inner contemplation.

On Monday morning, the fanciful Pisces Moon forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to both the all-powerful Sun and expansive Jupiter. Your imagination and your mystical nature are heightened; remember that what you dream you are able to create.

At 5:33 PM EDT, the spiritual Pisces Moon joins with elusive Neptune, bringing you deeper into the realm of the surreal and the inspirational. This is a great evening to spend in silent meditation or enjoy a candlelit dinner and a long slow film.

Practice compassion in all your encounters on Monday; it will come easily and you will learn how to ‘go there’ even when the planets are not supporting it!

 

 

DEEP IMAGINATION

Tuesday, October 31, 2017:

As you continue into the week, Tuesday brings more of the same, encouraging you in internal self-reflection and open imagination. Your connection to deep divinity, and original insights remain strong.

The problem is only in how difficult this can be if you are in a job that wants the focus to always be on ambition and hard focused work. If your workplace allows a celebration of Halloween on Tuesday, this will improve the day significantly. Tuesday is a great day to play with deep and imaginative characterization. Encourage those around you to engage in fanciful play.

At 1:22 PM EDT, when the Pisces Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to Mercury, your communications will be easily heard and positively received.

At 5:08 PM EDT, with the Moon forming a challenging square to authoritative Saturn, you may have to put your creativity and fun aside as you receive a wakeup call of seriousness. On Wednesday, you will need to push forward with more focus and assertiveness as the soft Pisces Moon gives way to the assertive demanding Aries Moon.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:08 PM EDT until she enters Aries on Wednesday morning at 2:43 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

TAKE INDEPENDENT ACTION

Wednesday, November 1, 2017:

Woods of Ashokan by Thomas Worthington Whittredge via Wiki Media

When you start the day on Wednesday, you will notice that the mood has shifted rather dramatically from dreamy and imaginative to “All fired up!”. You certainly won’t want to lay around and dream any longer! It is time to take action, preferably on a new plan, with vitality and drive. You may feel edgy and restless but with a powerful spark of courage and motivation. You are ready to move forward without restraint.

At 1:42 PM EDT, when the Aries Moon opposes aggressive Mars, you may notice that you have excessive energy, anger, or frustration. The best way to keep this energy from getting you into trouble and to move it out of your system is to engage in direct physical activity. No dreamy laying around on Wednesday and it won’t help to engage in team sports either! When the Moon is in impulsive Aries, you must move that energy independently of others. Go for a run, a bike ride or go sky diving!

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) in the very wee hours of the morning; she enters Aries at 2:43 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

PAY ATTENTION

Thursday, November 2, 2017:

Don’t neglect your meditation practice on Thursday morning. The forceful Aries Moon that provided powerful energy to take action and move forward on Wednesday, now has difficult conversations with destructive Pluto, lovely Venus, and unsettling Uranus. It will probably work best if you can spend time on your own as your frustration with others- and theirs with you- could create difficulties in your relationships. Allow transformative depth, unimaginable beauty, and shifting realities to move you forward.

At 5:56 PM EDT, Saturn forms a challenging square to the planet Chiron, which represents our deepest wound and our ability to heal that wound. With this aspect in play on Thursday, consider integrity and grow in your own healing work. Put your attention on your health giving path, understand that there is still work to be done to bring yourself to the height of emotional health that will enable you to be of healing service to others. Treat yourself and others with the deepest respect, integrity, and kindness. You are doing your work. Pay attention.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:03 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 5:46 AM EDT on Friday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

DREAM AND IMAGINE

Friday, November 3, 2017:

In the early morning hours of Friday, Venus forms a sextile aspect to mature Saturn. This simply suggests the possibility to stabilize your relationships or deepen your understanding of your own values at this time. This may involve releasing something that no longer works, not in a difficult way, you may be simply given a nudge.

By the time you wake up Friday morning, the Moon has also entered Taurus which takes the edge off the possible anger and frustration from the last few days. It also encourages you to connect with beauty and your sensual physical body.

At 3:22 PM EDT, the intense Scorpio Sun forms a lovely, supportive trine aspect to Neptune the planet of our dreams. This is lovely. However, least I paint too sweet a picture of this day, we must look at the fact that in the very early hours of Saturday morning Venus, planet of our values, love, and beauty, opposes unsettling and inspirational Uranus. You will certainly encounter this on Friday as well.

Don’t let the dreaminess of Neptune prevent you from looking deeply at the changes that have been occurring and will now come fully into view. You may not like what you see, but see it you will. Saturday morning’s Full Moon will see to that!

The Taurus Full Moon is exact while you sleep at 1:23 AM EDT on Saturday. You may choose to hide behind the sweetness of Neptune but life as we know it is shifting in ways we can not avoid.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) in the very wee hours of the morning; she enters Taurus at 5:46 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

TAURUS FULL MOON SEEKS COMFORT

Saturday, November 4, 2017:

In the very early hours of Saturday morning, Venus, the planet that represents your ability to form partnerships and develop your truest values opposes defiant, non-conformist Uranus. Be aware of any decisions you make regarding your relationships and how you spend and use your resources and money.

This suggests a lot of intensity on Saturday and yet this challenging aspect is quickly followed by the steadfast Taurus Full Moon. This brings our attention back to the Libra New Moon on October 19th. Whatever conversation or circumstance you began regarding love or partnership at that time is worth looking back at now to see what has developed over these past two weeks.

Your experience of Saturday will largely depend on where the Full Moon lands in your personal birth chart and where the aspect between Venus and Uranus lands as well. You may feel pushed and pulled in different directions. On the one hand, the Full Moon is showing you your need for consistent, predictable patience and deliberation. On the other hand, Venus and Uranus are asking for excitement or adding their flavor through unusual epiphanies or run-away anxiety.

I think the best way to deal with this dichotomy is to maintain a level of full awareness. Don’t expect either of these energies to rule the day. Make room for deep, sensual connection and stability along with epiphanies and shifting perspectives. This is certainly not a “one-size-fits-all” kind of day.

By the time the evening comes along, you should be able to relax into the sweeter pleasurable side of Taurus. If possible, stay home Saturday evening and put candles on the table and enjoy quiet connection with self and loved ones.

 

 

IDEALISTIC GROWTH AND SOCIAL PLEASURES

Sunday, November 5, 2017:

At 6:27 AM EDT, the Moon enters inquisitive, curious Gemini. After the past few days, you probably have a lot you’d like to talk about. Make plans to go out for brunch with trusted friends. Keep in mind that they probably have also had an interesting few days and have plenty to talk about themselves. Make it a point to give everyone room to speak all that they need to! A verbal emotional cleansing is in order.

At 3:18 PM EDT, Mercury leaves the deep waters of Scorpio behind to enter uplifting Sagittarius; you may want to make that a very late brunch or simply extend it into afternoon coffee. Mercury is the planet of the thinking and communicating mind.

All that you have kept undercover while Mercury was in Scorpio (since October 17th) is now ready to be exposed. Encourage and allow your mind to turns toward expansion and growth over the coming weeks.

Mercury will remain in philosophical Sagittarius for an unusual length of time due to the his retrograde period between December 3rd and December 22nd, staying in Sagittarius until January 11, 2018.

Sunday should be a great day all around. Make it social and invite others to engage with idealism, fun, learning, and growth.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:28 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 6:27AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

__________________________________________________________

* 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.
