Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: December 4, 2017 through December 10, 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…”

~ Dane Rudhyar, Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach

HOLD YOUR LOVED ONES CLOSE

Monday, December 4, 2017:

This week begins with the Moon in rational, talkative Gemini. With early morning positive aspects to excitable Uranus and impulsive Mars, you can anticipate an active day.

By early afternoon, the emotional Moon begins talking with both authoritative Saturn and logical Mercury, reminding you that it is your responsibility to deal with the hard wall that you have probably hit over the past few days.

Mercury just turned retrograde and joined with restrictive Saturn, just as Saturn is about to make a major move into rigid, serious Capricorn on December 20th. Our lives

Mädchen in Winterlandschaft by Albert Anker via Wiki Media

are about to get serious in a whole new way. Each of us will need to look clearly at our own issues of responsibility, maturity, and duty.  The heavy hand of reality is demanding its due over the coming months. The best thing for each of us is to take responsibility for our actions and approach each situation and circumstance in our lives with the very highest integrity even as we keep our hearts open to love.

At 3:36 PM EST, with the Moon entering Cancer, there can be a tendency to feel the need to protect oneself. Vulnerability can be scary. Don’t let it stop you from opening your heart and holding your loved ones and your family close.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:12 PM EST until she enters Cancer at 3:36 PM EST. 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.

 

 

SWEETNESS GIVES WAY TO POWER DYNAMICS

Tuesday, December 5, 2017:

Tuesday brings powerful connections allowing deep emotional states of expanded awareness. In the morning hours, the sensitive Cancer Moon forms a lovely, flowing Grand Water Trine to dreamy Neptune (in Pisces) and expansive Jupiter (in Scorpio).  You may step into the day with big, dreamy emotions. Allow love and connection, nurturing and kindness to rule the day.

Either go to bed early or pay careful attention to the power dynamics within your family to avoid the struggles that may crop up as the moody Cancer Moon opposes subversive Pluto at 8:06 PM EST.

The sweetness of the early part of the day will be difficult to hold onto.

 

 

EXPLORE FUTURE SELF-DETERMINATION

Wednesday, December 6, 2017:

Untitled by Caspar Wolf via Wiki Media

Wednesday begins with your attention clearly directed to the challenging wall that seems to stand in the way between you and what you are seeking to accomplish. Do not try to tear that wall down or scrape your knees trying to climb over it. Take the Universe’s direction to slow down.

Remember, Mercury is retrograde until December 22nd and Saturn is about to enter serious, authoritative Capricorn. You must take full responsibility, speak directly with integrity, and accept the fact that this particular wall cannot be scaled at this time.

A “No” today is not a “No” forever. Something needs to be learned or improved before you can move forward. Settle into the acceptance of reality.

At 3:37 PM EST, the Moon enters expressive Leo, moving you to release the sensitivity of the past few days. Work on being expressive without overdramatizing the issues you are dealing with.

At 4:20 PM EST, impulsive Mars forms a supportive sextile aspect to level-headed Saturn. The cycle between Mars and Saturn began in August of 2016 and is a cycle of stabilizing your assertive or sexual energies. What began in this vein at that time? Now, you will want to begin exploring ways to release that cycle in order to start a new level of stabilizing energy and sexuality in April of 2018. Begin to explore ways you may want to reestablish self-determination, independence, and sexuality.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:55 PM EST until she enters Leo at 3:37 PM EST. 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.

 

 

SEEK PLEASURE AND JOY

Thursday, December 7, 2017:

Thursday and Friday look like the best days in an overall challenging week. Obviously, we are still being impacted by Mercury’s retrograde motion impacting Mercury’s rocky relationship with Saturn. However, on Thursday and Friday, try to take any challenges with a grain of salt.

With the Moon in Leo, you can treat yourself to expressive creative pursuits and make fun and joy a priority. If there are children in your life, take a page from their playbook! Get in touch with playful pleasures.

Don’t hold back, express boldness as you seek simple joy. Engage in the love and romance, showing large bold gestures of passion and play. Take yourself to a show or better yet, go dancing. Enjoy the hell out of this day. You need it.

 

 

SUPPORT, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND KINDNESS

Friday, December 8, 2017:

Friday brings us to another day of focus on creativity, pleasure, and fun. The vital Leo Moon makes lovely aspects to eccentric Uranus, communicative Mercury, level-headed Saturn, and assertive Mars. This brings excitement, conversations, stabilization, and initiative to your generosity and creativity. Think about what you can do with that! 🙂

At 6:09 PM EST, the Moon leaves flashy Leo behind to enter meticulous Virgo, bringing your attention to issues of dedication, service and kindness toward others. Early in the day, it may seem a good idea to gather with friends for a night on the town. However, by the time Friday evening comes around, you are unlikely to be in the mood to do so.

This would be a better evening to cook a healthy meal for friends who needs support. You are able to offer a level of practical kindness, words of encouragement, and down to earth coaching. The exciting night-on-the-town will have to wait.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:41 PM EST until she enters Virgo at 6:09 PM EST. 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.

RELEASE ALL VESTIGES OF SHAME

Saturday, December 9, 2017:

Friday is a significant day as Mars leaves the cooperative sign of Libra (3:59 AM EST) behind to enter the intensely transformative sign of Scorpio. Mars, the planet of assertiveness, aggression, and directive sexuality, has been in Libra since October 22nd.

Keep your eye on how the #MeToo issue continues to unfold in personal lives and in the culture at large. The interest in compromise loses its roots as Mars goes directly for passion, desire, and its brand of truth.

With Jupiter also advancing through Scorpio, this story continues forward even as it morphs and changes. If you have a #MeToo story… take the time to tell it, if only to yourself. It does not need to be a public telling but give that story the light of day within your own heart. Shed any shame you have carried as it is so abundantly clear that you are in good company as nearly all women share such a story.

The Moon is in Virgo throughout the day allowing for a Saturday perfect for catching up on chores and home puttering. My favorite!

 

 

UNEXPECTED NEWS 

Sunday, December 10, 2017:

As the Moon moves through Virgo, she reaches her Last Quarter phase, imbuing us with restlessness and the need for change.

On a lighter note, Mercury, the planet of communication and thought, forms a flowing trine aspect to progressive Uranus. This may bring sudden epiphanies along with exciting and unexpected news. Pay attention to strokes of genius that seem ‘out of the blue’. Do keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde; set those new, innovative ideas aside to be put into action at the start of 2018.

At 8:47 AM EST, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, forms a challenging square aspect to imaginative Neptune, bringing a push toward inspiration for visionaries and artists.

Any difficulties that arise later in the day have their roots in the past rather than in current time. Don’t jump to conclusions or make judgments on the behaviors of those around you, you are likely missing a crucial piece of the puzzle.

You will be best served by sticking close to home working on the development of orderly and meticulous routines. A great day to make that gingerbread house. 🙂

A restless Last Quarter Virgo Moon can rob some folks of a good night’s sleep. Mixed messages from the heavens continue into the morning.

On a brighter note, Mercury’s trine to Uranus may be a stunning source of enlightenment, or a stroke of genius. Venus’ square to Neptune inspires artists, spiritualists, and other visionaries but it can also be a harbinger of heartache. After noon and long into the night, the Moon faces challenging alignments with retrograde Mercury and Saturn. Disturbing issues may reflect the past rather than the present. Fears and worries can be exaggerated. Contemplation is rewarded with fresh understanding of long-ago happenings. Be sure to think twice before making a judgment or reaching conclusions.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:03 PM EST until midnight when she enters Libra. 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*.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: January 16, 2017 through January 22, 2017

The biggest news this week astrologically is the movement of the Sun (the core energy of our Universe) out of Capricorn and into Aquarius on Thursday, January 19th at 4:23 PM EST.

Angel of Day 168 by Kontrola via Wiki Commons

Angel of Day 168 by Kontrola via Wiki Commons

In the interest of full disclosure, I absolutely LOVE the sign of Aquarius! With seven planets in my natal 11th house, I consider myself an honorary Aquarian even though I have no actual planets in the sign.

So let’s talk a little bit about Aquarius.

Aquarius is the sign of innovation and genius. Don’t think of the genius of Aquarius as an intensely high-level of intellect, but rather, genius as the ability for the mind to go to places it was never taught to go.

Aquarius is the energy that reaches out to the future regardless of how the past may want to hold on to an outdated model. Aquarius is able to cleanly detach from what holds it back from the future.

Without the energy of Aquarius, we would be firmly rooted in the dark ages. Aquarius is a sign that sees the greatest perspective for humanity. Aquarius is not a personal sign; it is not warm and fuzzy.

Aquarius looks to improve conditions of the collective, even when it must leave individuals to fend for them selves.

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

Monday, January 16, 2017:

The week starts with the Moon in perfectionist Virgo. You may wake up in the morning with all kinds of thoughts and plans that will help you reach some elevated state of your perceived potential. Virgo sees its potential clearly and longs to reach a perfected state of that potential. This is generally far easier said than done.

As the day begins, the Moon is highly empowered in a trine aspect to powerful Pluto at 6:40 AM EST. You will feel self-confident and engaged as you move forward into the day. By mid afternoon, with the opposition to impulsive Mars, you may be confronted or aggravated by someone getting in the way of your perfect plan.

The evening doesn’t necessarily get any easier as the Virgo Moon squares melancholic Saturn at 5:13 PM EST allowing restrictions and duties to follow us home.

At 9:13 PM EST, determined Mars connects with Chiron, the planet of wounding and healing. This offers an opportunity for you to see how your fears keep you from your desires. This is an evening to spend in contemplation, consider the process of untangling your fears. Be kind to yourself on Monday evening. A walk in nature or a hot bath will help ease you toward bedtime.

 

FLOWERS – DELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Tuesday, January 17, 2017:

Tuesday begins with a lovely trine aspect from the orderly Virgo Moon and the Sun in ambitious Capricorn. This is a free flow of grounded, stabilizing energy. After a brief VOC, the Moon enters charming Libra at 6:16 AM EST.

What can you do on Tuesday to help establish diplomacy and cooperation with your coworkers and others whom you engage with during the day?

At 1:38 PM EST, you may encounter a challenge to your desire for social harmony (the emotional Moon is square Mercury, the planet of intellect). Allow any negativity or cynicism from others to roll off your back. It is not worth a negative comeback. Go about your day, this challenge will pass quickly will not last as long as you do not engage it.

The rest of the day should prove to be relatively sweet and uneventful. Enjoy a romantic encounter or time with a close friend in the evening. Bring pleasure into your life. Bring home flowers! A little beauty and color will go a long ways to bring delight into your home and cheer up your life.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:10 AM EST until 6:16 AM EST when she enters Libra. 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.

ENJOY THE MORNING, THEN GET SERIOUS

Wednesday, January 18, 2017:

Your experience of Wednesday will likely start out calm as it is a very quiet day astrologically. The Moon remains in graceful Libra throughout the day encouraging the creation of beauty and a deep desire for harmony.

However, as the day progresses be aware of power dynamics (Moon square coercive Pluto at 4:24 PM EST) and the potential for anxiety (Moon oppose defiant Uranus at 10:42 PM EST).

Consider deeply your circumstances and those you encounter. Along with these clear stressors, you can probably feel the building of tension as we approach a square aspect (challenging) between Mars (the planet of direct energy, strength, and anger) and Saturn (the planet of limitations, restriction, and duty). This aspect will not be exact until Thursday at 4:15 AM EST (see Thursday’s post).

Wednesday is also the final full day with the Sun in authoritative Capricorn. Enjoy the steadfast stability and sense of overriding ambition that has characterized the past month.

 

SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS – A SENSE OF REBELLION

Thursday, January 19, 2017:

On Thursday, consider how you are pursuing your goals. At 4:15 AM EST, determined Mars squares authoritative Saturn. What initial action did you take, or seed did you plant with an eventual goal in mind, in late August of 2016? What action needs to be taken now to ensure that you are moving toward the desired result or the healthy growth of the seed planted at that time?

If you feel greatly agitated or somehow restricted at this time, consider how focused or scattered your efforts are or have been. Perhaps, it is time to release some internal expectations in order to focus on what is most important. The full results will be evident at the very end of May 2017.

At 4:23 PM EST, the Sun (the core energy of our world) enters unpredictable, progressive, and humanitarian Aquarius. Over the coming month, you will be inspired to approach life with less emotion and more objectivity. This is the time to listen closely to your internal “Different Drummer”.

Quickly on the heels of the Sun’s entrance into Aquarius, at 5:10 PM EST, the Moon enters penetrating Scorpio bringing a very different feel to the evening.

Right on its heels, the Moon squares the Sun for her Last Quarter Phase. Here, we are challenged to release whatever is holding us back from appropriate steps forward for innovative growth.

This will be a challenging day for yourself and those you encounter. When you are in the company of others, remember this. Offer kindness and practical support to those in your sphere of influence. We are all in this together.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:55 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 5:10 PM EST 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.

 

CONNECT DEEPLY

Friday, January 20, 2017:

Friday morning offers you an opportunity to profoundly deepen your attitude or approach to that which you value highly in your life. At 8:56 AM EST, lovely Venus forms a sextile aspect to transformative Pluto. This opportunity may be about intimate love relationships or it could be about money and other physical possessions of beauty and value.

On November 25th,  you planted a seed of profound deep love, value, or desire. Now, you are encouraged to explore different ways to help that seed grow. This is an aspect that helps you explore and discover a way to encourage the growth of passion, desire, and beauty.

The powerful Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine to mystical Neptune at 1:50 PM EST bringing a flow of magic, devotion, and sensitivity to the passion that is available throughout the rest of the day. Connect deeply.

RELEASE CONTROL

Saturday, January 21, 2017:

Saturday is a simple day of deepening connections. The profoundly powerful Scorpio Moon forms lovely aspects to the planet of power (Pluto), the planet of love and beauty (Venus), and the power of action and assertiveness (Mars) throughout the day.

Our hearts feel rich and deep.  For this day, we understand the need for sensitivity, understanding, and the releasing of control.

We are able to allow deep introspection to support the release of anger, forgiveness of hidden forces, manipulations, and mysterious power grabs.

We come together to support each other in the vision of transformation ahead. We stand where we stand and must move forward from the reality of where we are. My love is with each and every one of you

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:25 PM EST until she interests Sagittarius on Sunday at 5:46 AM EST. 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.

 

FUN ADVENTURES

Sunday, January 22, 2017:

When we awaken on Sunday morning, we are greeted with the Moon in adventurous, fun-loving Sagittarius.

At 11:30 AM EST, the optimistic Sagittarius Moon forms a delightful sextile aspect to the unpredictable Aquarius Sun.

Sit down with a friend or partner and plan a vacation or at least a weekend road trip. This is a delightful day for gathering with like-minded friends, other social activities, or a road trip!

Find a fun adventure, bring a few friends; whatever you do, don’t waste this day!

SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS – EXPANDING WISDOM

Monday, November 21, 2016:

Monday begins with the Last Quarter Square of the lunar cycle – exact at 3:34 AM EST. With the Moon in expressive Leo and the Sun in secretive Scorpio, the week begins with an internal argument between your need for expression and your desire for privacy.

At 4:35 AM EST, the Moon enters critical Virgo bringing us into a day of analyzing and organizing in preparation for the week.

At 4:42 PM EST, the Sun having been in private Scorpio for the past month, happily enters freedom-seeking Sagittarius. You are ready to lighten up a bit, leave some intensity behind to explore new adventures and expanded perspectives. It feels like you can finally bring a larger perspective into view. You may be ready to explore new areas of personal growth and philosophical understanding.

At 10:08 PM EST, the Moon opposes elusive Neptune offering sweet slumber and dreams of future possibilities.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:34 AM EST until she enters for now at 4:35 AM EST. 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.

 

EXPAND YOUR THINKING

Tuesday, November 22, 2016:

Tuesday’s Virgo Moon is highly active throughout the morning. With a square to Mercury at 9:32 AM EST, the naturally critical Virgo Moon may have you questioning your ability to accomplish what needs to be done. From there, you may swing into an exaggerated sense of your own abilities with a trine to Pluto at 10:38 AM EST.

On the heels of that, the Moon squares Saturn at 12:42 PM EST, which brings you back to questioning your abilities. All of that back and forth activity may leave you feeling out of balance and uncertain of yourself.

However, if you can set your self criticism aside and simply pay attention to a higher vibration of energy, you will be able to engage with the Mercury sextile Jupiter aspect that is exact at 1:19 PM EST. Seek out a renewal of inspiration and intellectual excitement. Open your mind to new perspectives of thought. Look for conversations that will stretch your ways of thinking about and perceiving the world.

If you are alone, this is an afternoon for study. Read something that will open your mind to new possibilities. These conversations or expanded thinking will not come looking for you; it is important that you make the effort to seek it out.

Remember, a sextile guarantees nothing. A sextile offers an opportunity, a possibility. You must make the effort. If you miss the opportunity, you will be stuck in the moodiness of a highly self-critical day.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:42 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Libra on Wednesday at 2:41 PM EST. 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.

RELEASE RIGID THINKING

Wednesday, November 23, 2016:

Early Wednesday afternoon, with the meticulous Virgo Moon VOC*, Mercury, the planet of our thought processes connects with serious, authoritative Saturn. This significant transit may inhibit our conversations or somehow put a block on our ability to gain clarity in our thinking. Don’t be discouraged by this. Go inward and find your true authentic voice. Release rigidity of mind. This begins a cycle that asks you to stabilize your thoughts and get clear on what is most important in the manner in which you perceive your world.

Anything begun now has importance and long-term implications. Do not make decisions quickly or without significant for-thought.

At 2:41 PM EST, the Moon enters diplomatic Libra focusing us on compromise and diplomacy. You may want to focus your attention on stabilizing significant relationship dynamics.

At 6:56 PM EST, with the lovely Libra Moon sextile the exploratory Sagittarius Sun, it is time to look beyond where you have felt stuck. Go out into the world with an attitude of potential, possibility, and excitement.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:42 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Libra on Wednesday at 2:41 PM EST. 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.

 

SUPPORT EVOLVING CONSCIOUSNESS; HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thursday, November 24, 2016:

Thursday’s lovely Libra Moon tries valiantly to maintain equilibrium and a steady calm on your life and circumstances. However, there are serious challenges and powerful forces working below the surface.

At 6:00 PM EST, expansive Jupiter forms the first of three waning square aspects to transformative Pluto. The energy of this transit has been building for some weeks, peaks now and again at the next two occurrences – March 30, 2017 & August 4, 2017. This difficult transit brings your attention to focus on a powerful long-term process involving the expansion of power and hidden forces. We clearly see where this is playing out in the outer world and in our political system.

Pay attention, also, to where and how it is impacting your personal life. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter) or significant points (North Node, South Node, Midheaven, Ascendant) between 12 & 17 degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) this will be particularly pronounced in your life.

Be aware of your own tendency (or others) to use excessive force in order to gain power. You must consciously build on kindness and compassion for all humans. This is not a game. We MUST practice the development of evolved humanity beginning with ourselves. There are forces that are utilizing these energies destructively. It is your job to counter that negativity in your own life circumstances and to dig deeply to challenge beliefs that stand in the way of kindness and the growth of evolutionary consciousness.

Contact me for a consultation to discuss how this is impacting your life. I have heard from many of you who are struggling with sadness, fear, anxiety, and anger due to the changes in our political system. Working with your chart will offer perspective and some clarity on the path forward. Use the code ElectionStress for a full 20% discount.

 

FACE YOUR INNER WORK

Friday, November 25, 2016:

On Friday, Venus, the planet of personal values, money, and pleasure, joins the conversation that Pluto and Jupiter began on Thursday. Lovely Venus conjunct powerful Pluto at 6:49 AM EST and squares overextended Jupiter at 8:44 AM EST.

Watch how values and money are highlighted in issues of power and control. Consider your own use and understanding of money and other things of value. Do you harbor private beliefs, or are you behaving in ways, that do not support your highest good and integrity? Work on these issues today. Be aware of greed and underhanded dealings that are rotting our culture to the core. Make sure you are personally managing your own love and money with squeaky clean integrity. The reflection is all around you and your work must start with yourself. It always begins as an inside job.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:53 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 3:02 AM EST on Saturday. 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.

INSIGHTS COME THROUGH ANXIETY OR EXCITEMENT

Saturday, November 26, 2016:

When we wake up on Saturday, the Moon is in introspective Scorpio.  Look deeply into your own psychological patterns to understand how to work with any fears that may arise throughout the day.  Be patient when dealing with the difficulties your friends and loved ones may be dealing with. Find inner strength and seek deep insights.

At 8:37 AM EST, perceptive Mercury trine unconventional Uranus bringing insights through anxiety or excitement. Mercury is the planet of mind and communication, Uranus is considered ‘The Awakener’. Allow your mind to open to unsettling original thoughts. Your conversations may surprise everyone.

When you head to bed Saturday night, you may have a very different set of ideas than when you awoke Saturday morning. Allow defiance and individuality while maintaining kindness and consideration of how differently we each experience the world.

 

REST – HIBERNATE

Sunday, November 27, 2016:

Rest on Sunday in deep quiet. If you are able to sleep late, you can avoid the one cranky transit of the day. At 6:25 AM EST, the Moon squares angry Mars, putting you on the defense. Allow that energy to work itself out in your dreams.

Later in the day, the Moon forms a sweet aspect to Venus and Pluto allowing you to rest at the end of a stressful week. Time alone is recommended. You likely feel the need to hibernate before the new lunar cycle begins on Monday with the Sagittarius New Moon.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:48 PM EST until she pictures Sagittarius at 3:46 PM EST on Monday.

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.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

ACTIVITY – EXCITEMENT – STABILIZATION

Monday, August 1, 2016:

Monday is a day of excitement, activity, and stabilization, a very active day! You may wonder where to put your energy and your emotions.

Shortly after midnight while we still slept, Venus, the planet that represents our deepest values, love, relationships, and resources forms a trine aspect to Uranus. The energy created is progressive, exciting, and requires no sleep!

This cycle began in late April (a cycle that brings innovation to our understanding of relationships and money) an action was taken on its behalf in early July, now the energy flows freely. The full results will be clear in mid-September.

At 1:49 PM EDT, the dramatic Leo Sun forms a free flowing trine aspect to steadfast Saturn. This settles us, stabilizes us, and allows the sensitive Cancer Moon to feel safe and loved.

The Moon is VOC* for a very brief time between 8:44 PM EDT and 9:12 PM EDT when she enters Leo. Anticipate a little playful fun before sleep. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, and simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

MARS LIGHTENS UP- GENEROSITY & PLAY WITH THE LEO NEW MOON

Tuesday, August 2, 2016:

On Tuesday, Mars says farewell to the deep, intense emotion of Scorpio and enters the light explorative energy of Sagittarius. What a relief!

In early January, Mars entered Scorpio. He normally spends approximately two months in any particular sign. However, due to his retrograde cycle, he entered Sagittarius in early March, and then retraced his steps back into Scorpio at the end of May.

Now, we can embrace the explorative, passionate side of masculinity and more easily release toxic masculinity in our world and within each of us. We have learned much. As a species and as a culture, I hope we are leaving behind our unconscious acceptance of that toxic energy.

The New Moon is exact at 4:45 PM EDT as the Sun and Moon conjunct at 10° Leo.  At this time, we see no Moon at all. If you are able to get away from the lights of civilization and look into the heavens, it will be so dark you will see every star in the sky. As the Sun and Moon come together, we are reminded of the power in the Universe.

Don’t neglect a simple New Moon ritual on Tuesday evening or Wednesday. You will want to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon and within 24 hours.  The dramatic Leo New Moon is ideal for planting seeds of generosity, love, and playfulness or for telling the Universe you are awaiting a child or a lover.

Take a moment to write down what you wish to create for the upcoming cycle.  Have two candles available; 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 desire 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.

Embrace the dark and allow growth.

SAY YES

Wednesday, August 3, 2016:

If you are a person who loves summer, don’t go to work on Wednesday! This is a day to take off for purposes of sheer enjoyment.

I know the world is in the midst of its share of struggles and yet, we can’t put our heads in the sand. Remember to have fun along the way. Yes, right in the middle of the rough points in our lives, those times that are consumed in deep struggle, still… stop to smell the roses, seek beauty, and play. Find sweet places of joy that call you to life and follow them. Wednesday, listen for the call.

At 5:23 PM EDT, the dramatic Leo Moon forms a free-flowing trine aspect to Uranus, the planet of innovation and sudden change. Expect the unexpected on Wednesday evening. You may be invited to an event or a gathering. Say yes.

Enjoy the company of like-minded community; add your intelligence, strength, and energy to the mix. There is revolution in the air. Caution is not a reasonable position.

 

ATTENTION TO DETAILS

Thursday, August 4, 2016:

By the time we awake on Thursday morning, the Moon is in Virgo cooling us off (metaphorically speaking) after the heat of Wednesday. This is a day for accomplishment as our attention turns to the details that must be managed. In the late afternoon, the meticulous Virgo Moon conjuncts with Mercury enabling us to manage meticulous details and accomplish practical tasks. Please give yourself credit for all that you get done.

At 10:02 PM EDT, you may struggle with self-criticism and have a hard time seeing your accomplishments. Practice self-compassion and kindness. Look outside of yourself and see the bigger picture.

The Moon is VOC* for a brief time while we sleep between 12:13 AM EDT and when she enters Virgo at 3:34 AM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is not good, and not bad; it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

CONSIDER YOUR SERVICE TO THE HIGHER GOOD

Friday, August 5, 2016:

Friday begins with a sense of stability and empowerment as the Virgo Moon forms a free-flowing trine aspect at 8:54 AM EDT. This day has the potential of being highly productive. Plan that productivity early and stick with the plan.

At 11:26 AM EDT, Venus enters dependable hard-working Virgo encouraging us to hold a very high standard on what we are accomplishing. Our values and relationships may need to be meticulously analyzed.

At 11:21 PM EDT. the Moon, still in Virgo, conjunct Jupiter increasing our desire to perfect something significant within ourselves as a service to the higher good. Because this aspect happens after bedtime, your dreams may give clues that are significant for you at this time.

The Moon is VOC* beginning at 11:21 PM EDT and ending on Saturday at 12:57 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

COMMUNICATION – TENSION – LUST

Saturday, August 6, 2016:

Pay attention to how you may be trying have ”perfect” conversation or how you are trying to please another person by saying what they want to hear. It is important to not worry about the responses of others when you need to be honest and say what is true for you.

At 9:17 AM EDT, Mercury square Saturn lets us know that we must work on our communication skills. Towards the end of November 2015, the cycle between Mercury and Saturn began. This is a cycle of deepening our commitment to authentic communication based on integrity. That cycle came to full illumination on June 20th giving us a full view of how we have developed this issue during this time, where have our choices landed us?

Now, at the Last Quarter Square of this cycle (Mercury – Saturn) we are asked to fully understand the process and what we have learned from it. It is time to practice what we have learned, making it a part of how communication works for us now. We will practice communicating within these parameters until we begin the new cycle between Mercury and Saturn in late November of 2016.

At 12:57 PM EDT, the Moon enters Libra relaxing the anxiety around communication, as we are more willing to see the other side of the issue. Given the sextile between the Moon and Mars at 4:07 PM EDT, we may want to consider a different manner of communication. Connecting sexually as a way to manage perceived conflict could be highly beneficial.

With a square aspect between Venus and Mars (exact at 8:19 PM EDT), this could bring a battle between contrasting perspectives or it could create just the right amount of tension to release into naked time together.

Saturday begins with the Moon VOC* until she enters Libra at 12:57 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

ALLOW THE MIND TO FLOAT UNTETHERED

Sunday, August 7, 2016:

If we played our cards right on Saturday evening, we should start the morning with the Libra Moon sextile Saturn bringing harmony and stability to our emotional connections.

The remainder of the day is most strongly impacted by the opposition between Mercury and Neptune. Your experience of this transit will be determined by how you managed the challenges of Saturday.  It will also be determined by what you set in motion back in mid-March 2016.

You may experience great mental confusion, connection to imagination, or renewed commitment to a significant meditation practice. This is not the day to make decisions between various options in your current circumstances. You simply do not have the clarity to choose wisely.

This may feel frustrating when the Moon squares Pluto at 7:39 PM EDT. Don’t hold onto the frustration, as this is a quickly passing Moon transit.  At 8:29 PM EDT, the Libra Moon sexiles the Leo Sun offering a lovely connection that can last throughout the night.

RELEASE EMOTIONAL VOLATILITY

Monday, July 25, 2016:

The week begins with the aggressive Aries Moon trine Saturn offering determination and the ability to push yourself forward with conviction. As the day begins, we feel stable, rock solid, and sure of ourselves.

At 11:30 AM EDT, with the Moon square Pluto, anger may rear its head with potential battles and dark power dynamics coming to the table. If you find yourself justifying your anger, you are on the wrong path. Allow it to pass by.

This is just another Moon transit and will not hang around if you don’t feed it with your attention. Release emotional volatility.

By afternoon or early evening, the harsh energy has passed. The Sun trine both diplomatic Venus and conversational Mercury in Leo, your fiery, expressive emotions easily feed your thoughts and values.

Seek out places to express your beliefs and values with dramatic playfulness. On Monday, your communications may have a way of being reflected back to you in a manner that moves the dial forward supporting your deepest desires.

 

 

SEEK SOLID, PLAYFUL CREATIVITY

Tuesday, July 26, 2016:

Tuesday begins with the Moon still in assertive Aries and we are experiencing a good deal of anxiety as she conjunct Uranus in the early morning hours.

As the Moon enters steadfast Taurus at 11:38 AM EDT, we return to a calm emotional state. We are happy to settle in and engage with others with patience and an added dose of kindness.

The Last Quarter Moon is exact at 7:00 PM EDT. The Leo Sun and the Taurus Moon are energetically at cross-purposes. The Taurus Moon simply wants to stay home and enjoy comfort and stability while the Leo Sun wants to head into the world to shine and dance. If you can bring these two energies together into some form of solid and yet, playful creativity, you may enjoy a delightful evening.

The Moon is VOC* from 2:19 AM EDT until 11:38 AM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, and not bad. It simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

SUDDEN AWARENESS & EXCITEMENT IN LEARNING

Wednesday, July 27, 2016:

At 3:44 AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our minds and thinking, forms a trine aspect to Uranus. Don’t worry, you may sleep through the exact moment of the aspect but you won’t miss out on this. If you were paying attention, it was fully in the air on Tuesday evening and it will be with us throughout the day.

When Mercury and Uranus come together, we want to keep our eyes open for sudden awareness, unusual communications, or profound unexpected light bulb moments. The cycle between Mercury and Uranus began at the end of March 2016. What began at that time that is now resulting in the sudden surprising awareness? Continue to open your mind to new ideas and ways of being in this world. Change can come suddenly.

When the Moon trine Pluto at 2:12 PM EDT, we can tap into great determination and the ability to power through any obstacles that hold us back.

There is a great deal of intensity within this day and we are relieved when it relaxes into easy pleasure as the stable Taurus Moon trines expansive Jupiter at 11:44 PM EDT.

 

 

ANTAGONISM TURNS TO CURIOSITY

Thursday, July 28, 2016:

Thursday begins with full-on cranky energy as the Taurus Moon squares Mercury (8:17 AM EDT) and opposes Mars (11:13 AM EDT). We may feel antagonistic or encounter others who approached us with resistance, discord, or hostility. If you do encounter that energy, don’t take it too seriously. It will pass and most likely has little, if anything, to do with you.

When the Moon enters Gemini at 2:17 PM EDT, your communications become easier. You may be curious about the difficult communications of the morning, and you are ready to have a friendly open conversation to clear the air.

The Moon is VOC* from 11:13 AM EDT until 2:17 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

 

SPARK CREATIVITY

Friday, July 29, 2016:

We begin Friday with a light, active, and curious mind that is somehow uncertain as to its intended place. On the one hand, we want to look at reality and take responsibility for our current place in the world. On the other hand, we want to drift on our imagination and dream of escape routes.

How to honor both of these perspectives? Give the world permission not to make sense; embrace dichotomy. Trying to analyze our perspectives, our lives, and our current path will not lead to understanding.

The reality of our circumstances is, at this time, is at cross-purposes to other more intangible realities that are equally relevant. Allow yourself to hold multiple perspectives.

At 4:48 PM EDT, Mercury square Mars. Are you ready to debate the issues at hand? How do you work with a mind that is hotly aggressive even as you are straddling multiple realities? Utilize the energy of the Gemini Moon to gather and work with the ideas and beliefs on both sides. Work to bring steadfast language to your frustrations and energy to our thoughts. None of us have the full range of understanding and the world is far more complex than we can possibly understand.

At 5:06 PM EDT, Uranus turns retrograde at 24 degrees Aries. If you have personal points or planets between 23 – 25degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), you are likely in a state of extreme excitement or anxiety.

Look to the house that contains Uranus in your natal cart and the house that has Aquarius on the cusp to understand the areas of your life that are being intensified. Allow unusual innovations to spark your creativity.

LEAVE THE DRAMATIC THINKING BEHIND

Saturday, July 30, 2016:

As the Moon happily rattles through Gemini in the early part of the day, we can engage easily in social niceties and simple conversations. At 2:18 PM EDT, Mercury leaves the excitement of Leo behind to enter the analytical sign of Virgo. Mercury is delighted to be in Virgo, leaving the drama behind in exchange for more discerning and thoughtful intellectual pursuits. Whatever excitement has been on your mind over the past few weeks can now come forth in a more practical manner.

The Moon enters Cancer at 5:08 PM EDT. This is not the best night to go in search of social excitement. We are more inclined to seek emotional security and nurturance. Enjoy an evening at home, close to family and loved ones.

The Moon is VOC* from 7:46 AM EDT until 5:08 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, and simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

 

FLOW TURNS TO STRUGGLE

Sunday, July 31, 2016:

With the gift of a flowing trine aspect between the sensitive Cancer Moon and dreamy Neptune, we are presented with a day of sweetness. Don’t put any high expectations on the day but allow yourself full enjoyment. Spend time at the beach, in a body of water, listen to music, read poetry, or meditate. The softer sides of your soul can be fed fully throughout the day.

At 8:03 PM EDT with the Cancer Moon forming an opposition to Pluto, deep troublesome family issues may upend all that ease. Our sensitivity explodes and we must guard against defensiveness and power struggles. Bring kindness and patience to the table. Perhaps time alone in deep contemplation would be our best use of the evening.

Head to sleep early as Monday morning will bring with it a new perspective and the potential of much innovation and excitement.
