This week begins in the darkest phase of the Moon. Allow what is no longer useful to fall away. Wednesday afternoon, we come to the Gemini New Moon. Don’t forget to do your New Moon ritual this week, preferably waiting until Thursday or even Friday.

Keep your ritual simple. With this New Moon occurring in Gemini, the intention you set will involve curiosity, gathering information, and communicating.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Gemini, it will help you clarify what intention is needed. For example, if Gemini is held in your 1st house, set an intention to get curious about how others perceive you, in the 4th house, set an intention to enjoy lighthearted communications with family members. If Gemini is in your 7th house, perhaps you need to get curious about how to improve communications with a partner, or in the 10th house, you may need to develop new communication skills with your coworkers or in your business.

 

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that requires curiosity and the development of great skills in gathering, sharing, and utilizing information.

Better yet, make an appointment for a consultation.
Make your appointment today!

 

 

The New Moon is on Wednesday… do your ritual on Thursday!

~~New Moon Ritual ~~

Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming Moon Cycle.

Have two candles available; light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the moment. Light another candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, then light the second candle, focusing on drawing to you what you want to create, bringing the two candles closer together.

Do this each day until at the Full Moon, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Gemini New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of curiosity, gathering, sharing, and utilizing of information.

 

 

PREPARATION

Monday, June 11, 2018:

You may wake on Monday feeling determined, stubborn, or simply interested in seeking beauty, good food, and rest. At 11:31 AM EDT, as the Taurus Moon engages in a flowing trine to Pluto, you feel powerful and able to accomplish whatever you choose.

As the week begins, pay attention to the fact that Mars is creeping slowly along preparing for his retrograde station which occurs at 9° Aquarius on June 26th. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars) between 6° – 12° of any fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius) begin now to prepare for the additional internal heat.

Understand that in the coming weeks it may be a challenge to maintain your equilibrium and not fly off the handle when provoked. You can be pretty sure you will be provoked! The house that holds Aquarius will point to the area of your life that will provide the provocation.

This may be a good time to get back to your meditation practice or find a healthy outlet for excessive energy. Forewarned is forearmed.

You will likely sleep through it but just in case… the Taurus Moon is VOC* from 11:28 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 2:53 AM EDT on Tuesday morning. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun.

 

 

COMMUNICATION

Tuesday, June 12, 2018:

By the time you wake up on Tuesday morning, the Moon has joined Mercury in curious, lighthearted Gemini. Mercury is the planet of communication and thought process; the sign it is moving through focuses communication and thought. Mercury moves quickly.

On Tuesday afternoon, Mercury leaves Gemini behind and enters Cancer, heightening the connection between thoughts and emotions. Over the coming weeks, you will think more about feelings, you may be nostalgic and you will look for and offer emotional support. You may notice that you are moody and easily brought to tears by simple things like those television advertisements that are made to pull at your heartstrings. Mercury will remain in Cancer until July 29th. Keep the box of Kleenex nearby.

At 4:01 PM EDT, the talkative Gemini Moon forms a supportive trine aspect to Mars. You are able to express your most innovative ideas and get your point across easily. Communication is the name of the game.

You will likely sleep through it but just in case… the Taurus Moon is VOC* from Monday night at 11:28 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 2:53 AM EDT Tuesday morning. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun.

 

 

GEMINI NEW MOON – CURIOSITY AND A GIFT OF ATTENTION

Wednesday, June 13, 2018:

Wednesday begins with a lively conversation. At 7:40 AM EDT, Mercury, currently very sensitive in Cancer, forms an exciting sextile aspect to innovative, potentially life-changing Uranus. Touch the earth, a tree, an animal, or another human body, open yourself to what the Natural World has to teach you. You may be surprised.

At 3:43 PM EDT, we reached the New Moon at 22° Gemini. At each New Moon, we begin a new cycle of emotional growth. This is the time to plant a seed to tend over the coming month. In Gemini, we begin a cycle of understanding and communication. Consider your newest thoughts and ideas. Wait until tomorrow to do your New Moon ritual. Spend today contemplating new thoughts, ideas, and ways of expression.

At 5:54 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of our deepest values, love, and resources enters playful fun-loving Leo. You may notice the world looking a little less vulnerable and a little brighter. You will want to be seen and appreciated for your most authentic inner light. While Venus is in Leo (until July 9th) we all require a bit more attention and adoration. You will feel best if you go out of your way to give the gift of attention to others.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:43 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 3:20 AM EDT in the wee hours of Thursday morning. 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.

SURPRISE YOURSELF IN LOVE

Thursday, June 14, 2018:

Thursday morning finds the Moon in sensitive, nurturing Cancer forming a helpful sextile aspect to innovative Uranus along with a conjunction to Mercury. This is a good morning to express your deep care for children and other loved ones. Look for unusual ways to bring your self to the nourishment of others.

Mid-afternoon brings a opposition from the Moon to restrictive Saturn which may be a good time to take a nap or in some other way disengage from the connection that seemed so easy in the morning.

As you move toward evening, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, forms a challenging square aspect to unpredictable Uranus. This is a cycle of anxiety or excitement regarding how you build love and financial security in your life. If you began something regarding love or money in late March, consider what steps forward to take now. Perhaps, you are facing a crisis in a love relationship or your personal finances.

What action can you take now that will calm the anxiety by engaging excitement? Under a challenging aspect between Venus and Uranus, it may be tempting to take quick, irrevocable action. Don’t act impulsively; look at your situation from perspectives you have not noticed or taken into account before. There may be an answer to the issue that you haven’t yet seen. Keep your eyes wide open, look with new unconventional eyes. Your internal defiance is asking you to open your eyes to a new way of being.

Help others see the world from a new perspective as well. We are all a bit stuck with our own view. Ask your most unusual, eccentric friend what they see in your situation. You may be surprised.

You will likely sleep through it but just in case… the Gemini Moon is VOC* until she enters Cancer on Thursday morning at 3:20 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun.

 

 

FREEDOM AND RESPONSIBILITY

Friday, June 15, 2018:

When you wake up Friday morning, you will be fully immersed in the energy of Venus square Uranus (which was exact late Thursday night). This may manifest as a deep desire for personal freedom and independence. You may experience sudden epiphanies regarding your intimate relationships, your relationship to finances, or even how you create beauty in the world. If you are an artist, this could be a time of great innovation in your craft. If you are a lover, this could suggest the need for greater independence and trust between you and your partner.

Allow yourself to explore ideas that may unsettle you. If there are challenges regarding a partner, do your best to keep your boundaries clear. Friday evening brings Mercury (the planet of communication and thoughts) into opposition with Saturn (the planet of responsibility and self-respect); this suggests serious conversations. Apply deep kindness and respect for yourself and your partner in all communications. Facing reality and personal responsibility is highlighted.

Allow kindness and respect to contain and hold any conversations on Saturday as well. If that is not possible do not engage the conversation.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:18 PM EDT until she enters Leo on Saturday morning at 3:20 AM EDT.
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.

CREATIVE PLAY

Saturday, June 16, 2018:

The weekend’s Leo Moon encourages dramatic self-expression and playful creativity. This is a weekend for parties, summer festivals, and making the world your stage. You will want to be seen, appreciated, and expressly loved.

Take a creative risk, allow others to see a part of yourself that you normally keep under wraps. Allow your most sparkly side to shine through. You may be surprised at how good it feels to be seen in this way. Your inner child wants to come out to play.

If you are more of an introvert, this will be a great weekend to spend with children and to express your appreciation of others. If you do not want to be on stage, applaud someone who does.

You may feel some anger or aggression early in the evening as the Moon opposes Mars; strong physical activity will help settle that into a positive evening of fun.
Celebrate!

You will likely sleep through it but just in case… the Cancer Moon is VOC* until she enters Leo on Saturday morning at 3:20 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun.

 

 

ACTIVE CREATIVITY

Sunday, June 17, 2018:

Any creative activities are worthy of your attention now. Express love and honor to anyone you encounter. Everyone’s ‘inner child’ will be on full display. Think about that as you interact with others. How would your day be different if you and your friends were all five or seven years old? What would it be like to play together from that space or perspective?

Build fairy houses in the woods or the park, put on a play, or fly a kite! Don’t be afraid of looking foolish, your friends will adore you if you can lead them in this direction of active creativity! Allow your warmth, generosity, and open-hearted acceptance to rule the day.

Enjoy this Leo Moon while we have it. If you open to this playful side of life, you will be ready to go back to work on Monday with a smile on your face.

 

“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”, 1980.

__________________________________________________________

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

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: May 14, 2018 through May 20, 2018

 

This is the week we have all been waiting for!

The powerful New Moon on Tuesday joins the shift of Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius, and the challenging square aspect formed between Uranus and Mars on Wednesday.

A story is being fleshed out that speaks about your urge to break any rules necessary to become your most authentic self, regardless of the opinions and desires of others.

Because of the upcoming Mars retrograde, there will be three steps to this process and Mars will square Uranus three times.

The first view of the upcoming story occurs this week (it has been building in the background), full understanding comes in August, and the story will wrap-up in September.

Where in your life are you feeling the need for major, powerful change? Don’t fight it. I envision each of us waiting on a precipice.

There are choices to be made. You can take the initiative and jump, you can wait until you are pushed, or you may simply fall over the edge!

I recommend that you determine your highest truth and jump in the direction that will most invigorate that truth and allow you to express your most creative, wild side.

There is no point in attempting to hold a hard line of convention or stability.
As has been said: “The times they are a-changin‘.” Allow yourself to be moved.

“For all its complexity, however, astrology remains fundamentally simple. It offers a time-honored system of symbols that sum up key aspects of human life while providing profound insights and practical guidance.” ~Anne M. Nordhaus-Bike

SAVOR YOUR SENSES

Monday, May 14, 2018:

Monday’s Taurus Moon is in her darkest phase as she moves toward Tuesday’s New Moon. Go inward and contemplate the changes that are just pushing you into a new reality. The Taurus Moon wants calm and stability. Perhaps, you can hold onto a tiny piece of that quiet, just for this day.

Stabilize your emotions through sensual care of your body. Get a massage, take a bubble bath, dress in your most beautiful clothes. Connect, honor, and love your body. Savor all of your senses. Pay attention to the beauty around you, or cook a delicious meal.

With the big changes occurring all around you, it will help to keep complications to a minimum. Don’t allow drama to pull you in. Keep quiet. Touch the beauty of simplicity.

 

TAURUS NEW MOON
DISRUPTION – CHANGE – REVOLUTION

Tuesday, May 15, 2018:

Tuesday’s Taurus New Moon is highly significant coming as it does on the same day that Uranus (the planet of disruption, change, and revolution) enters Taurus. This is a powerful shift, do not underestimate its ability to move your life in a new direction.

What house in your chart holds Taurus? This is the area of your life that is demanding change. Don’t try to avoid the profound shifts that are in the wings in the coming months. Allow yourself to be moved.

Take advantage of the New Moon being in the same sign by planting a seed that will support the changes you want to see in this area of your life. Think big as the change available is not a minor one!

At 7:48 AM EDT, the Sun joins the Moon at 24 degrees Taurus (the New Moon). Wait a day or even two but do not neglect your New Moon Ritual. Keep your ritual simple. Being in Taurus the intention you set will focus on maintaining stability in the face of the big shifts that Uranus is bringing.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Taurus, it will help you clarify what intention is needed. For example, if Taurus is in your 1st house, set an intention to maintain personal stability even as Uranus is shaking up your personality, in the 4th house, set an intention to maintain stability and calm in your family relationships or your home environment, even as Uranus is pushing for something shockingly new. If Taurus is in the 7th house, perhaps you need to bring calm and love to your committed partnership even as the relationship undergoes a sea of change. If it is in the 10th house, you may need to continue honoring your commitments even as you allow yourself to bring revolutionary changes to your work or business.

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that requires calm, stable, predictability. Better yet, make an appointment for a consultation. Make your appointment today!

 

~~New Moon Ritual ~~
Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming Moon Cycle.
Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the moment. Light another candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, then light the second candle, focusing on drawing to you what you want to create, bringing the two candles closer together. Do this each day until at the Full Moon, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.
The Taurus New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of loyalty, patience, dependability, and calm. This energy will be dearly needed in the coming months.
At 4:43 PM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini, bringing more curiosity into the evening hours. There is much you want to talk to others about as you evaluate the changes you feel coming.
The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection)for only a matter of minutes from 4:29 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 4:43 PM 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.

Consider that the last time Uranus was in Taurus was between 1934 – 1942. Think about what was happening in the world during those years.

 

SEEK EXCITEMENT AND INSPIRATION

Wednesday, May 16, 2018:

Much has occurred before you even wake up on Wednesday morning. Mars has left Capricorn behind where he has been pushing a serious agenda of work and ambition. He is now in Aquarius where he will remain until mid-November; staying so long due to a retrograde this summer. Mars in Aquarius suggests that your energy levels are less predictable, you may be more interested in group dynamics that in your own advancement. You are able to detach from your emotions when anger or difficulties arise.

Uranus entering Taurus and Mars entering Aquarius sets these two dynamic players up for an intensely challenging conversation. Mars and Uranus will form three highly challenging square aspects over the coming months. There will be one now, another again in August, and finally the last in September.

You will get the first taste of the story now, the plot will flesh out in August, and reach its conclusion in September. You will spend the months following that assimilating the full storyline.

Keep in mind that Mars is the planet of direct action, anger, and war. Uranus is the planet of defiance, innovation, and revolution. Watch the world, the culture, your life and the lives of those you encounter. Choose to find excitement, reach for inspiration, and seek unusual change.

With the Moon in chatty Gemini, there is certainly much to talk about. Listen and gather the information that you need to make the best decisions in this new environment.

FOLLOW YOUR CURIOSITY

Thursday, May 17, 2018:

Can you expect to rest on Thursday? That depends on many factors and on the circumstances of the past few weeks.

This is a day to share information and emotional realities with others with the talkative Gemini Moon on board for most of the day.

The Moon rests between 2:18 PM EDT and 5:48 PM EDT, if possible you should do so as well. The evening will call you to spend time with family and loved ones as the Moon enters Cancer at 5:48 PM EDT. At 6:00 PM EDT. with a sextile to Uranus, your contacts with family or loved ones may bring unusual information or unexpected news.

Take everything in stride, look for the places that call you with curiosity or excitement. People often say to follow your passion but many (I would say most) folks don’t know what their passion is. The thing to follow is your curiosity. Think about the things that call to you, that light up your eyes; follow those things and you will find the excitement that will fill your life with passion.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:18 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 5:48 PM 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.

 

SMOOTH RUFFLED FEATHERS

Friday, May 18, 2018:

Friday offers more stability as you find your feet more firmly on the ground with Mercury (the planet of thoughts and communication) forming a supportive trine aspect to stable, grounded Saturn.

Consider what seed for stability you may have planted in mid-January at the conjunction between Mercury and Saturn. The gift from anything begun at that time is likely offered now. You have built something in your conversations or your thinking that is able to help stabilize you now. Rest in this.

Friday is a good day to talk with family members, smooth any ruffled feathers, share a meal, and extend mutual good will.

 

TAKE A RISK IN LOVE OR MONEY

Saturday, May 19, 2018:

Since April 24th Venus (the planet of love, beauty, and possessions) has been in Gemini, encouraging curiosity, thinking, and conversations about your values regarding love and money. On Saturday, Venus leaves that behind to enter sensitive Cancer. Now, you will notice a deeper emotional connection to these issues. You may be more interested in cuddling with a partner than in discussing the relationship. Watch your spending patterns as you are more likely to spend from an emotional need rather than a practical one. When you are feeling overly emotional over the coming weeks, leave those credit cards at home. Venus will remain in Cancer until June 13th.

At 1:30 PM EDT, Venus forms a sextile to unpredictable Uranus. Expect the unexpected regarding your values. You may suddenly come to a new understanding of your love relationships or your relationship to money or beauty. Sextiles provide opportunities, not gifts. Look for any opportunities that present themselves, go ahead and take a risk. Under the influence of this sextile, any opportunity that shows up regarding love or money is very likely to land you in a good place. Go ahead.

At 7:11 PM EDT, the Moon leaves maternal Cancer behind to enter playful, expressive Leo. She makes some stressful aspects over the course of the evening so watch that you are not overbearing in your enthusiasm. It will help considerably if you find the right folks to spend the evening with that appreciate your more dynamic self.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:04 PM EDT until she enters Gemini on Wednesday morning at 8:03 AM 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.

 

SUN ENTERS GEMINI – LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Sunday, May 20, 2018:

Sunday offers a relatively simple day of creativity and dramatic expression. The Moon remains in vital Leo throughout the day allowing you to relax and play before heading into another work week.

You can count on the upcoming work week feeling very different from the past few weeks as the Sun leaves steadfast, slow-moving Taurus behind and enters versatile perceptive Gemini at 10:14 PM EDT.

With the Sun in Gemini, everything seems to speed up. Your mind moves more quickly and you want to share your thoughts with others. You may be less attached to your emotions and more interested in intellectual pursuits. The Sun’s transit through Gemini tends to be more lighthearted as you are busy exploring new ideas and learning new things.

Spend time at that library, attend a lecture, talk to those who know what you would like to learn, teach those who are interested in what you know.

That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong.

JUST A BIT LONGER

Monday, April 9, 2018:

You may find yourself breathing a sigh of relief on Monday morning with the Moon having left Capricorn behind to enter Aquarius. With Mars, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn, it is a relief to have the Moon no longer highlighting that serious and sometimes restrictive area as she did throughout last weekend.

As the Sun is nearing the end of its time in Aries, it will engage in powerful conversations with both Pluto and Uranus over the coming days. The wee hours of Wednesday bring a square aspect with Pluto, you will be able to feel this for a day or two before and after the exact contact. Prepare to look deeply and face the challenges that have previously been hidden; don’t turn away from what you don’t want to see. Look it squarely in the eye and prepare to transform how you work with your inner demons.

The Moon is waning toward her New phase on Sunday. Throughout this week, consider those things that need to end in your life or circumstances. Sunday will also bring with it Mercury’s direct station. Hold on a bit longer as next week offers a new start and forward motion.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* until she enters Aquarius at 2:51 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. You will likely be sleeping!

 

EQUALITY AND FREEDOM

Tuesday, April 10, 2018:

Tuesday’s Aquarius Moon may provide objectivity and open-minded detachment to allow you to remain emotionally removed from the intensity that is lurking just below the surface. Find unusual, like-minded, and interesting people to spend time together.

While emotions are linked to the Aquarius Moon, you may find yourself attracted to all that is unusual and your thoughts may turn to an instinctive desire to work with others to improve the conditions of all. In Aquarius, we look to the future with new and progressive ideas. Ideals of equality and freedom for all propel your thinking into new arenas.

As you head into the evening, you will have to face the darker side of the day. Something is being required of you, perhaps a change in direction, which you would rather avoid. Allow your mind to work with this in dreams while you sleep. Perhaps, clarity will come with Wednesday’s rising Sun.

 

SUPPORT IS AT HAND

Wednesday, April 11, 2018:

Wednesday brings with it a need to take action on a significant issue or situation. The annual cycle between the Sun and Pluto began on January 9, 2018, with the conjunction between them. This is a cycle of empowerment and intensification of the self, bringing destruction or the growth of your full potential.

Be fully conscious of exactly where you plant your feet on Wednesday. If powerful forces are working against you, look to your loved ones and friends for help and support. Thanks to a lovely trine aspect between loving Venus and assertive Mars, support is near at hand.

Focus your attention on that love and support understanding that you have that very same strength to supply to others. Your loved ones need you more than you may realize. Make yourself available.

At 2:39 PM EDT, the Moon enters sensitive, inspirational Pisces. Whatever the hard issues are, they look less stark and immovable as your emotions are blanketed with an overlay of a gentle, surreal mist. You may seek escape in many ways; avoid drugs and drink; meditation, poetry, music, or film will soothe you.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:56 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 2:39 PM 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.

CREATIVE AND EROTIC PLEASURE

Thursday, April 12, 2018:

Thursday wins my vote for the high point of the week. The Moon continues through idealistic, compassionate Pisces offering you an inspired, dreamy view (or at least a softer one…) of your life. You are able to set aside the rougher issues and rest in gentle imagination. It feels good to find comfort behind those rose-colored glasses, at least for a time. Spend time in imaginative, peaceful quietude.

Compounding the intangible passivity of Thursday’s Pisces Moon, Venus forms a lovely sextile to Neptune (the planet that rules Pisces) at 12:26 PM EDT. The afternoon is colored with gentle pastels of love and romance. Sensuality is aroused and you are more available than usual for sensitive, creative and erotic pleasures.  Enjoy.

 

THE INTERCONNECTEDNESS OF ALL SOULS

Friday, April 13, 2018:

Friday continues with much the same sense of a dreamy, gentle interlude as Thursday. As we come into the dark phase of the Moon (New Moon on Sunday), and with the Moon in poetic Pisces, pay attention to your desire for quiet, internal contemplation.

Over the next few days, spend some time alone with your own sensitivity and depth. Engage with your spiritual practice and spend as much time as possible in nature or meditation. Engage your imagination to create intangible beauty through poetry or other art forms.

Open your heart to deep compassion; allow yourself to feel and soothe the suffering of yourself and others. Suffering is a human condition, it is never ours alone. When you feel it in your own heart, understand that to soothe it in another will soothe it in yourself. Pisces allows us to experience the interconnectedness of all souls.

The Moon enters Aries at 11:26 PM EDT. If you are up late, you may feel the flush of renewed energy otherwise Saturday morning will bring a revival of fortitude.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:28 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 11:26 PM 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.

 

YOUR DAMAGED, BEAUTIFUL HEART

Saturday, April 14, 2018:

Saturday dawns with a surprising renewal of fearlessness, determination, and endurance. The Moon is now in dynamic, energetic Aries.

Sweetening the pot is an early morning, lovely sextile aspect from Jupiter to Pluto. This offers you an opportunity to renew your understanding of your own deep purpose. Consider the circumstances of the past that have brought you to the brink of despair; understand how those times of anguish offer a path toward empowerment and purpose. Release old pain and acknowledge empowerment and deep inner grace.

Another, clearly connected opportunity is offered on Saturday afternoon when assertive Mars forms a sextile to mystical Neptune. You may find that you are more appealing to others than usual or that you encounter others who are downright charismatic. You may simply feel more in tune with those around you. Spend time with others to enjoy lovely interpersonal connections.

Show your damaged beautiful heart and make deep, powerful connections with the equally damaged and beautiful hearts of others. Love with power and grace.

 

 

ARIES NEW MOON – MERCURY DIRECT

Sunday, April 15, 2018:

By the time you awake on Sunday morning, Mercury, the planet of thought processes, plans, and communications has stationed direct at 4° Aries. Everyone is happy about this news!!

 

Please give it a day or two to get up to speed before getting on with new projects, new communications, and new ideas to move forward.

The pushy Aries Moon forms a challenging aspect to Pluto on Sunday afternoon, exacerbating any interpersonal struggles. Do your best to curb tendencies to fly off the handle and this should pass without lasting difficulties.

At 9:58 PM EDT, the Sun joins the Moon at 26° Aries bringing us to the New Moon, However, it is best to do your New Moon ritual on Monday or even Tuesday, after the Moon has moved away from the ‘beams of the Sun’. The growth of the seed you plant will be supported by the wait.

Keep your ritual simple. With this New Moon occurring in Aries, the intention you set will be fiercely dynamic and will require independence and determination.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Aries, it will help you clarify what intention is needed. For example, if Aries rules (is on the cusp of) your 1st house, set an intention to bring courage to your personality, in the 4th house, set an intention to bring energy and bravery to your family relationships or your home environment. If Aries is in the 7th house, perhaps you need to bring courage to your commitment to a partner, or in the 10th house, you may need to become a more energized leader within your work or business.

 

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that requires determination, leadership, and courage. Better yet, make an appointment for a consultation. Make your appointment today!  

~~New Moon Ritual ~~

Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming Moon Cycle.

Have two candles available; light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the moment. Light another candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, then light the second candle, focusing on drawing to you what you want to create, bringing the two candles closer together. Do this each day until at the Full Moon, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Aries New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of courage, determination, leadership, and independence.

 

 

The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.

~ D.H. Lawrence

UNIQUE FRIENDS – PROGRESSIVE IDEAS

Monday, March 12, 2018:

You’re likely to begin Monday morning with serious ambitions and deliberate plans for accomplishment, courtesy of the Capricorn Moon. However, you may need to prepare yourself to release any tight hold you have on those expectations.

At 11:36 AM EDT, when the Moon makes contact with Uranus, you may be surprised at how easily you lose the focus that felt so solid at the start of the day. Don’t expect that focus to return but don’t let it cause any great concern either.

At 6:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters progressive Aquarius, encouraging new perspectives and progressive thinking.

Prepare for an interesting, potentially socially engaged evening. Find something unusual to do, spend time with your most unique. unconventional friends.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:36 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 6:45 PM 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.

 

 

ILLUMINATE HOPE

Tuesday, March 13, 2018:

Tuesday continues to bring us face to face with the anxiety or excitement of differing points of view. Keep your mind open and try to see things from different perspectives. It is important that we do what we can to understand how others view the world.

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, forms a First Quarter Square to restrictive, determined Saturn on Tuesday morning. This will hold us in its grip for several days. Venus joined with Saturn on December 25, 2017, beginning a cycle of stabilizing or restructuring love and beauty. Now, at the first square between them, it is important to consider what actions you can take to move forward with this cycle. Is this a reference to love, money, creativity, beauty in your life? How can you bring more maturity to this issue? Perhaps, you have been avoiding reality in some way. Look clearly and take practical action to grow up and love more deeply.

Another important transit today involves a lovely, flowing trine aspect from the Sun to Jupiter. The cycle between them began on October 26, 2017, shortly after Jupiter entered Scorpio. We are just now seeing the deeper, more profound gifts that will ultimately be bestowed through the cycle that began at that time (think #MeToo).

With Jupiter’s retrograde in Scorpio, dirt is still being excavated in order for deep growth while expansive understanding begins to illuminate the deeper issues of ongoing misogyny. Jupiter offers us hope.

 

 

SHARE IDEAS

Wednesday, March 14, 2018:

The Moon continues through independent, unconventional Aquarius on Wednesday. This is basically a quiet but friendly and engaging day.

The Beloved by Andrew Pavlovsky via Wiki Media

You should be able to see situations and other people from a new and unusual perspective. Take advantage of this. Go ahead and engage your mind in progressive, humanitarian thinking. Gather with others to share ideas. Aquarius gives us an opportunity to see outside of the restrictive boxes we generally find ourselves in.

You may discover that you are able to open your mind to areas of thinking that have not been available to you in the past. Go there, explore new, unusual, rebellious, and even revolutionary ideas. Share those ideas and listen to what others are sharing as well.

SENSITIVITY AND EMPATHY

Thursday, March 15, 2018:

By the time you get going on Thursday, the Moon has entered passive, dreamy Pisces. Wednesday brought a relatively quiet day with a focus on unusual and unique thinking patterns, courtesy of the Aquarius Moon. Thursday brings a relatively quiet day as well but we have traded the unusual thinking for a deep sense of emotion, empathy, and compassion.

Earlier in the week, it became necessary to face reality in your financial situation and your love life. While the Moon is in Pisces, you will be less inclined to face reality, longing to engage in imagination, music, and mystical pursuits. Don’t lose track of reality but allow yourself to swim in sweet dreams a bit on Thursday.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:33 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 6:12 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.

 

 

THE DREAM HAS TEETH

Friday, March 16, 2018:

The desire to stay in dreamland will likely continue on Friday as the Moon moves through idealistic, poetic Pisces. However, with both Venus and Mercury now in Aries, the dream may have teeth and more determination behind it than you may realize. You want to reach out and grab what you long for and are less inclined to sit on the sidelines looking on wistfully.

With the Moon in Pisces (along with the Sun and Neptune), your emotions bring you to levels of deep sensitivity. Boundaries between yourself and others dissolve in clouds of empathy and compassion.

You will not, however, dissolve into a puddle of inaction as your sensitivity can easily engage anger or aggression if you see mistreatment of any kind. You will not only feel for the underdog but you will go to bat for him or her.

Powerful Aries energy will keep the dream from Pisces season alive.

PISCES NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED OF COMPASSION – THEN GO DANCING

Saturday, March 17, 2018:

Saturday begins with a Pisces New Moon at 9:12 AM EDT. Perform your New Moon ritual late on Saturday or, better yet, on Sunday.

At 12:40 PM EDT, Mars, the planet of action enters Capricorn, joining Saturn and Pluto in this serious, authoritative sign. Mars is considered to be in its exaltation in orderly, steadfast Capricorn, as the sign helps to contain and subdue the fire of Mars. This is a powerful, level-headed, and self-controlled position for the planet that rules anger, male sexuality, and war.

Even so, it may be a rough road as he meets with both Saturn and Pluto between now and when he enters Aquarius on May 15th (that is the same day that Uranus enters Taurus).

At 2:56 PM EDT, the Moon leaves any softness behind and enters Aries. The evening may feel a bit volatile… use that energy… make love or go out dancing; release any pent-up energies that may feel stressful in your body.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:12 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 2:56 PM 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.

 

~ New Moon Ritual ~

Sunday will be the best day to plan and implement your New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. First, take a moment to write down what changes you wish to create or increase in the upcoming Moon cycle. For this Pisces New Moon, set an intention regarding something intangible related to you imagination, compassion, spirituality, or inspiration.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Pisces, it will help you clarify where creativity or inspiration is ready to manifest. For example, if Pisces is in your 1st house, set an intention of expressing the most sensitive side of your personality. If Pisces is in your 4th house, set an intention to bring space for spiritual exploration into your home, set up an altar. With Pisces in the 7th, the intention may be to meet more mystical people or begin a spiritual path with your partner. In the 10th, you may see the need to be more sensitive to your coworkers or to bring something elusive to your business or career.

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that needs to grow through the expression of compassion, sensitivity, and empathy.

Have two candles available for the ritual; light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are in this moment. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. When you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are choosing to create as you bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day and at the Full Moon in two weeks, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Pisces New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of empathy, mysticism, and poetic whimsy.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

 

 

 

THE URGENCY OF THE LIFE FORCE

Sunday, March 18, 2018:

Waking up on Sunday will feel very different from how you felt when you awoke on Saturday. Remember, that the Moon sets the emotional tone for the day as it moves through the Zodiac, spending approximately 2.5 days in each sign. The change from a Pisces Moon to an Aries Moon is fairly dramatic.

With the Moon in Aries, you will notice that your instinctual reactions speed up and you may feel edgy and restless. You have a powerful desire to take action. This is no lazy Sunday! Certainly, it is not the day to stay home resting or watching movies.

You may feel the need to follow a spark that thrusts you forward into an individual task or action. You may want to take off on your own for a bike ride or to ski down a mountainside. Engage your physical body in action. This is how you will feel the best.

There is a sense of urgency with this Moon sign, watch the temptation to be overly impulsive. You may feel invincible but please retain some amount of caution… and enjoy the feeling of being alive!

RUTHLESS AMBITION

Monday, February 12, 2018:

The week does not begin on a light-hearted note but you may appreciate that you are starting with a sense of personal drive and ambition. Going back to sleep is not an option as you are fully aware of how much work you have ahead of you.

Get on track right away and use the energy available for accomplishment. The Moon moves through hard-working, authoritative Capricorn throughout the day.

At 2:22 PM EST, the Moon joins Pluto, demanding that you push forward with determined empowerment. You may be a bit ruthless in your drive for success.

At 6:42 PM EST, with a sextile being formed from the Moon to expansive Jupiter, the evening offers a bit more room to relax. Look for opportunities that you have been too focused to see earlier in the day. Find a way to release the stress from so much focused ambition, get outside, take a walk, and shift your perspective.

Sleep may not come easily on Monday night as a square aspect is formed from the Capricorn Moon to Uranus, shortly after midnight. Exercise or meditation before bedtime will help.

 

 

EXPRESS YOUR UNIQUE SELF

Tuesday, February 13, 2018:

Early Tuesday morning is uneventful until the Moon enters Aquarius at 10:12 AM EST. The serious ambition and effort of yesterday gives way to progressive ideas and an objective understanding of what is truly important. Notice how your emotions are not apt to get in the way of your unusual or progressive ideas.

Tuesday evening, Mercury forms a challenging square aspect to Jupiter, asking you to consider how you explain and express your beliefs. You may have a clear internal understanding of what you believe and yet struggle terribly to express those beliefs in a way that others understand. Make the effort to think things through before trying to put them into words.

At 9:22 PM EST, the Aquarius Sun forms a lovely sextile aspect to Uranus. This energy will last well into Wednesday and offers you an opportunity for spontaneous expression of your most unique, authentic self. Go ahead, get on stage with that improv team, you’ll do great! 😉

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:44 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 10:12 AM 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.

 

 

YOUR UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP DOES NOT FIT IN A HEART SHAPED BOX

Wednesday, February 14, 2018:

Wednesday offers excitement and the ability to move forward without uncomfortable emotions getting in your way. What do you want to do that requires that you detach yourself from what those around you think?

When the Moon is in open-minded Aquarius, allow yourself to surprise others with a true, authentic expression of your most unique self. Allow yourself to be the outsider as you consider how much freedom that position offers. Cultures and humanity move forward on this energy. Without the ability to be truly unique and move outside the boundaries of approval, we would be in the dark ages of the 1950’s still.

At 9:30 AM EST, the Moon forms a sextile aspect to Mars, offering an opportunity to take direct action on something important to your individual, unique path.

This is not the Valentine’s Day given to expressions of tender sensitivity. This Valentine’s Day will be best utilized to take an objective look at your partnerships and create a path forward that takes into full consideration the unique, possibly unconventional needs of your particular relationship.

 

 

AQUARIUS NEW MOON, SOLAR ECLIPSE

Thursday, February 15, 2018:

Thursday begins with great excitement as Mercury (the planet of your mind and thoughts) forms a sextile aspect to eccentric, unusual Uranus at 10:07 AM EST. Your mind is ready and open for unexpected and original insights. The Aquarius Moon adds to the picture as she gets into this lively conversation that is already going on. Keep your mind open to epiphanies and revolutionary ideas and experiences that could come out of the blue.

At 4:06 PM EST, we reach the Aquarius New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 27° Aquarius.

I will separately post the instructions for the New Moon Ritual which you should do over the next day or two. You do not want to do it while the Moon is still under the beams of the Sun!

At 6:19 PM EST, a sextile aspect is formed between lovely Venus and stable Saturn. Keep your eyes open and consider opportunities that may present themselves regarding the stabilization of your love relationships, your financial resources, or your creative endeavors.

At 9:42 PM EST, the Moon enters Pisces, asking that you go inward and care deeply for the more mystical side compassionate side of your nature. This is a great night for deep, profound, and refreshing sleep.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:06 PM EST until she enters Pisces at 9:42 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.

 

 

~ Weekend New Moon Ritual ~

Friday will be the best day to plan and implement your New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. First, take a moment to write down what changes you wish to create or increase in the upcoming Moon cycle. For this Aquarius New Moon, set an intention regarding your humanitarian aspirations, intellectual or scientific innovations, or other independent innovations.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Aquarius, it will help you clarify where inventive idea wants to manifest. For example, if Aquarius is in your 1st house, set an intention of expressing the uniqueness of your personality; or if Aquarius is in the 4th house, set an intention to bring more unusual ideas into your home. With the Water Bearer in the 7th, the intention may be to meet unconventional people or begin a progressive new path with your partner or in the 10th, you may see the need to bring new innovations or make unpredictable changes to your business or career.

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that needs to grow through the expression of your most unconventional ideas and objective brilliance.

Have two candles available for the ritual; light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are in this moment. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. When you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are choosing to create as you bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day and at the Full Moon in two weeks, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Aquarius New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of progressive, revolutionary growth.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

 

 

INSPIRATION AND COMPASSION

Friday, February 16, 2018:

On Friday morning, Mercury reaches the point of Thursday’s New Moon and Eclipse, possibly revealing something that has been previously obscured or unclear. You may be surprised by an unanticipated revelation.

With the super sensitive Pisces Moon forming a lovely sextile to Saturn, early in the day, you are able to minimize any difficulties through deep compassion and staying in touch with transcendent or mystical inspiration.

If you find yourself feeling confused or susceptible to inner suffering, move your attention outward and look at those around you with deep, unconditional love and compassion. This is a day made for meditation, empathetic responses, or creating dreamy works of inspired poetry, music, or beauty.

 

 

REST AND DREAM

Saturday, February 17, 2018:

Two major aspects dominate Saturday. First, at 6:20 AM EST, Mars, the planet of action, forms a challenging square aspect to Neptune. This creates a situation where it is deeply challenging to get anything truly accomplished. As you try to step forward in action, you will be likely stopped by a sense of weakness or confusion.

I would recommend that you simply allow this to be a day where action is elusive, allow the world to lack clarity. You could struggle against it and try to get things done or you can just allow the day to dissolve under your feet. There is no point in pushing against the grain. Let yourself rest, go to the movies, hang out on a beach, and dream.

At 11:28 PM EST, Mercury leaves Aquarius behind to join with the Moon, Venus and Neptune, already in dreamy, sensitive Pisces. Pay attention to your dreams, they will support a path of understanding. On Sunday, the Moon will leave Pisces behind even as the Sun will join this mystical gathering.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:14 PM EST until she enters Aries on Sunday morning at 7:05 AM 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.

FLOATING IN DREAM SPACE

Sunday, February 18, 2018:

On Sunday, you will awake to the Moon’s entry into Aries at 7:05 AM EST, bringing restless, emotional energy to the table. This energy is more than a bit out of place given the pile-up of planets occurring in the mutable water sign of Pisces.

At 12:17 PM EST, the Sun joins the gathering! With the ingress of the Sun into inspirational Pisces, it joins Mercury, Venus, Neptune, and Chiron all in this surreal, elusive, and intangible sign.

The Aries Moon doesn’t know how to behave in this environment and may be frustrated, particularly as she forms a square aspect to Saturn at 7:15 PM EST.

Over the coming weeks, it is important that you learn to go with the flow, to take time for meditation and quiet, to go inward, to touch the divine within yourself and see the divine in others. Experiment with different types of music and find out what sings to your soul. You will benefit from incorporating music in your everyday life.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aries at 7:05 AM 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.

 

 

“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.
