CURIOSITY IN COMMUNICATION

Monday, November 6, 2017:

Monday presents us with relatively calm but fully engaging day. The Moon is in inquisitive, perspective Gemini. Allow yourself to maintain an open attitude toward all the folks you encounter. Ask questions, encourage an open exchange, and share your unique perspectives with others. In all of this, show a deep level of respect and curiosity.

At 9:58 PM EST, the Gemini Moon opposes stabilizing, duty-bound Saturn. Go to sleep early enough and you won’t feel the heaviness that is often a part of this serious energy.

 

 

SENSITIVITY AND DEEP CONNECTION

Tuesday, November 7, 2017:

At 5:45 AM EST, the Moon enters protective, sensitive Cancer allowing the general emotional state of the day to turn inward. Shortly thereafter, Venus, the planet of deep, personal values, enters the powerful waters of Scorpio where she joins with both Jupiter and the Sun.

Over the coming days, Venus reaches out toward Jupiter, allowing the depth of passion and love to deepen and release. On November 13th, they will join together at 7 degrees Scorpio, beginning a new cycle of expanding the intensity of deep love and connection.

At 3:48 PM EST, the sensitive Cancer Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to expansive Jupiter. Allow deep love, connection, and prosperity to flow. Spend money, create art, and give love.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:40 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 5:45 AM EST. LOL! Five whole minutes; you will probably be sleeping or brushing your teeth!

 

 

ALLOW THIS SNAG TO PASS

Wednesday, November 8, 2017:

Rouen, Rue de L’Epicerie by Camille Pissaro via Wiki Media

Wednesday morning brings a sense of belonging to your situation. Whether you spend your day at work, at home, alone, or in community there is a sense that you belong.

At 10:06 AM EST, that sense may hit a snag as someone in the environment may push an agenda or try to hold power or control over you. This is a simple Moon transit and is likely to be rather subtle and won’t last long. If you pay attention, you will, however, notice it. Perhaps, it is an internal thing where you are the one pushing the agenda or holding power over another. Go inward and check your own level of integrity.

In the very early hours of Thursday morning, the Cancer Moon also has a challenging aspect to unsettling, exciting, and sometimes defiant Uranus. Get to bed early and allow these energies to pass without distress. No early morning tweeting please! 🙂

 

 

BEGIN YOUR PLAN FOR 2018

Thursday, November 9, 2017:

Depending on how early you get up on Thursday morning, you may or may not encounter ongoing sensitivity from the past few days. At 7:30 AM EST, the Moon leaves emotional Cancer behind to enter exuberant Leo. You will be able to set aside that sensitivity and open yourself to a more generous and playful state of self-expression.

Another early morning event occurs at 7:12 AM EST, with the passionate Scorpio Sun forming a sextile aspect to subversive, transformative Pluto. The cycle between the Sun and Pluto (an annual cycle of empowerment or destruction) began on January 7, 2017.

As you prepare for the new cycle, which will begin in January of 2018, consider what you will need to release as you prepare for the next cycle. Simply stated, this as an important time to consider what needs to be released and to begin to plan for the new cycle ahead. Yes, begin to envision your personal intentions and strategies for 2018!

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:15 AM EST until she enters Leo at 7:30 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.

 

 

A NIGHT FOR SELF-EXPRESSION

Friday, November 10, 2017:

I think you can anticipate a pleasant, even fun, morning. Get to work early, engage with others; show-up as your most authentic self while holding space for others to feel safe in their full personality expression as well. Folks will probably be feeling fairly positive and upbeat as they prepare for the weekend ahead.

Late afternoon may bring a bit of a slump as we reach the Third Quarter Moon phase at 3:37 PM EST. With the Sun in intensely private Scorpio and the Moon in playful, expressive Leo, there may be a conflict in how to move forward. Allow any stress to pass by observing without reacting to difficult (internal or external) interactions. Release and move forward, this is simply a Moon transit and will pass quickly if you do not engage with it.

If you are hoping for any party type activities, Friday is your night. Go to the theater, go dancing, engage with others in a big way, and enjoy playful expressions of all sorts.

Saturday night will be best suited for quieter endeavors.

PLAN FOR MAGIC

Saturday, November 11, 2017:

Start Saturday off with simple pleasures, a low-key yoga class, brunch with friends, or a walk in the woods. Whatever you choose to do early in the day, make sure you have no agenda other than enjoyment. Other energies and ideas are rattling around in your head through the morning hours but allow them to be non-obtrusive while you simply enjoy the morning.

Saturday’s flowing trine to inspirational Uranus brings focus to the afternoon as you are provided with the ability to explore new ideas and unusual innovations. Nail these ideas down, bring them into reality as you make definitive goals on which to build your most inspiring, inventive ideas.

Once the Moon enters industrious, efficient Virgo at 11:42 AM EST, commit those goals to paper. Sign and date your goal statements, revisit your statement regularly and allow magic to occur.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:56 AM EST until she enters Virgo at 11:42 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.

 

 

PRACTICAL DREAMS

Sunday, November 12, 2017:

Sunday may bring minor challenges but they are rather sweet challenges. 🙂

The Moon is in highly practical Virgo throughout the day, encouraging you to spend time on analytical or organizational projects. Perhaps, you simply need to do laundry and clean the house.

However, at 8:24 AM EST, the orderly Virgo Moon makes an opposition to dreamy, fanciful Neptune. With this aspect in play, you may want to open a bottle of champagne while you clean the house and do the laundry! Perhaps, you can take a break from the work to watch a movie, meditate, or simply rest and dream. A dreamy but analytical organizational day!

At 7:04 PM EST, when the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to transformative Pluto, you can dive into gratitude and the depth of empowerment you are developing as you grow in self-understanding.

“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force it sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”  ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.

ACTIVITY AMPS UP

Monday, September 11, 2017:

Monday morning should start out slow and easy. The Moon is in Taurus supporting earthy relaxation and deliberate stability. Don’t try to get a lot accomplished as the VOC* Moon is not interested in achievement.

At 3:29 PM EDT, you can expect your mind to speed-up with activity as the Moon makes her way into talkative and curious Gemini.

This will be a great evening to enlist active study, writing, or speaking. The Moon develops harsh challenging aspects to both mental Mercury and assertive Mars, pressuring you to take action on your thoughts, words, and ideas. Pay attention and be aware of how others hear you, express your passion but do try to keep aggression out of your tone and manner.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) on Monday until she enters Gemini at 3:29 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.

 

STABLE LOVE & VALUES

Tuesday, September 12, 2017:

In consideration of Tuesday’s trine aspect formed from graceful Venus to deliberate thoughtful Saturn at 8:49 PM EDT, you will want to look back at the entire cycle between these two planets.

The cycle between Venus and Saturn is a cycle of bringing stability to your deepest values. At the start of each planetary cycle, we plant a seed or in some manner begin a new process. This may have been a time when you began a serious relationship or started a new phase in an existing one. Perhaps, you began to handle your finances in a more mature fashion and you got serious about making money, establishing wealth, or creating something of material substance.

Examine the seed you planted when the cycle began at the conjunction between Venus and Saturn in late October of 2016. At the end of July of 2017, you were able to see how far the cycle had developed at its full expression. Now, you get the benefit of the work you have done on this issue. The relationship is going well or the finances have improved.

You may even be able to help others who face similar challenges to their most personal values of love or money. Maturity and hard work support the stabilization of those values. Over the coming months, you will begin preparation for a new cycle of deepening those serious values.

The Moon is in curious Gemini throughout the day encouraging friendly, talkative encounters with a diverse range of folks.

STRUGGLE LEADS TO MATURE GROWTH

Wednesday, September 13, 2017:

Wednesday’s Gemini Moon is extremely active in the early hours of the morning when you will likely be sleeping, anticipate strong dream activity.

At 2:24 AM EDT, we reach the Third Quarter Moon phase. This is a release point following the Full Solar Eclipse of August 21st. Think back to that day and consider what shifts need to be made to prepare for a step forward at the coming New Moon on September 20th.

Once you get up and are going into the day, there’s a lovely trine aspect from the talkative Gemini Moon to Jupiter in relationship- oriented Libra. This is a time when conversations with a loved one can be expansive, optimistic, and result in positive connection.

When the Moon then sextiles Uranus at 2:35 PM EDT, all bets are off, excitement may bring a surprise or something unexpected.

Wednesday evening, the energy changes dramatically at 6:13 PM EDT, when the Moon leaves chatty Gemini behind to enter protective, nourishing Cancer. Cancer brings our attention to domestic issues, love, and kindness.

However, we are building to a difficult square aspect being formed from the critical Virgo Sun to Saturn in Sagittarius (exact at 10:58 PM EDT). This brings with it a sense of difficulty, responsibilities, and the heavy hand of reality. The stress of this aspect is with us through most of Wednesday and will maintain through much of Thursday.

Consider a difficult choice or something stressful that began early in December 2016. It may feel hard but this is the time to begin the process of untangling the issues surrounding that time.

You may feel restricted, restrained and in some way held back by others. Please relax into it, and try to find the lesson. Saturn brings significant growth as we take responsibility for ourselves and the steps we take forward.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:35 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 6:13 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.

 

LOVE – THE MEANING OF FAMILY

Thursday, September 14, 2017:

I hope you enjoy exciting and hopeful dreams before you wake. Then turn your attention to anticipation and encouragement regarding your domestic and deeply emotional connections and relationships.

At 3:31 PM EDT, with the Moon trine devotional Neptune, your heart and mind may turn in the direction of romance or simple flights of fancy. Immerse yourself in the development of your deep understanding of what family means to you. Family can mean so many things to each of us. A quote I like from Jim Butcher, “When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by your without flinching – they are your family.” These are the connections to remain committed to over time. Folks who keep you close through thick and thin, who you know you can share your vulnerabilities with, bring them closer now, let them know you are by their side as well. Accepting deep love from others sustains your ability to move forward and continue passing love onto others.

When the Moon is in Cancer, our hearts feel tender and our sensitivity can sometimes be a challenge. Allow your vulnerabilities to show, give, and receive love and kindness.

 

EXPAND LOVE

Friday, September 15, 2017:

Friday brings another day of deep sensitivity as the Moon continues moving through intuitive, tender Cancer.

At 3:43 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of love, beauty and resources forms a lovely sextile aspect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and optimism. Take time to become aware of what you have created in terms of love, value, beauty, or finances since late August 2016. This is the waning sextile, a time to begin preparation for a new cycle of expanding love that will begin in November. For now, prepare to release the cycle that began in late August 2016. Each new cycle builds on the previous one.

Pay attention to any opportunities you encounter to express your appreciation for how others have nourished your life.

At 9:09 PM EDT, the Moon leaves Cancer behind to enter dramatically inclined Leo. Saturday will feel far less sensitive and will be more playful and fun. 🙂

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:23 PM EDT until she enters Leo at 9:09 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.

PUT YOUR CARDS ON THE TABLE

Saturday, September 16, 2017:

I love to see a weekend with a playful Leo Moon. It is true that I am a bit biased in this regard! It is also true that weekends are generally a time we want to have fun and express ourselves with generosity and largesse. The Leo Moon helps create this energy with encouragement. It is also true that we each need to make sure our motivations are clear, that our generosity does not have a core of selfishness with this Moon placement.

At 3:01 PM EDT, mental Mercury, finally direct, joins with aggressive Mars for the final of three conjunctions, this time in Virgo. Finally, say what must be said, with renewed clarity and deep kindness. Get ready to move on with new ideas and new ways to implement those ideas. Virgo offers the ability to see the potential of a situation and do the detailed work to reach that potential for the good of all. Put your cards on the table.

 

COLOR THE DAY WITH PLEASURE

Sunday, September 17, 2017:

Sunday brings delightful aspects to the exuberant Leo Moon. The day begins with a flowing trine to Saturn at 10:18 AM EDT, you should feel steady and in control of the direction you want to take the day, you are ready to move forward but not in a hurry.

The Moon has an exciting sextile to Jupiter at 4:36 PM EDT which supports the expansion of your heart and generosity. At 8:34 PM EDT, with a conjunction to lovely Venus, your heart feels full, creative, loyal, and dynamic. At 8:55 PM EDT, with a trine to Uranus, you may receive news that surprises you or you may express something unexpected to others.

Your heart is so open throughout this day. Enjoy. There is hopefulness and joy available for the taking. These are all Moon transits so be sure to incorporate them as they come along, they will not last but will color the day with pleasure.

RELEASE IN PREPARATION

Monday, August 14, 2017:
The Taurus Moon really wants to be calm, stable, and settled today. However, at 10:30 AM EDT, she forms a difficult, challenging aspect to aggressive Mars.
You may encounter anger or deep frustration, remember to not engage that energy and it will pass quickly being only a Moon transit.
Over the next few hours, calm should be restored as the steady Taurus Moon proceeds to make positive aspects to both beautiful Venus and Pluto allowing love and empowerment to flow into your life.

At 9:16 PM EDT, the Taurus Moon forms a difficult square aspect to the brightly shining Leo Sun as we reach the Third Quarter Square between our two Luminaries. You are encouraged to release and let go of what no longer serves your life. This release is important as you prepare for the major new Lunar Cycle coming at the Full Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

 

UNDERSTAND YOURSELF

Tuesday, August 15, 2017:

In November of 2016, Venus joined with Pluto. She is asking that your relationship dynamics enter into a serious conversation. Today, at 7:17 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty opposes Pluto, the planet of deeply significant change and transformation. The conversation that began last Fall now becomes illuminated and you are able to enter a state of understanding.

This aspect could bring about a further conversation about love, money, or other precious resources. Look for clarity as you move forward with your personal values. As you reach toward clarity, do not be surprised to find feelings of vulnerability, fear, and defensiveness. Breathe through the challenge and look clearly at what is laid out before you.

At 10:07 AM EDT, as the Moon enters inquiring Gemini your conversations can begin with genuine curiosity. Much can be learned today that will assist you in more fully developing your understanding related to your beliefs and values.

 

CURIOUS CONVERSATIONS

Wednesday, August 16, 2017:

As the chatty Gemini Moon squares nebulous Neptune at 8:35 AM EDT, it may seem difficult to get the day started or to feel like you’re doing anything more than spinning your wheels.

By mid-afternoon, things loosen up and conversations become interesting and provocative. At 3:30 PM EDT, the active Gemini Moon sextiles assertive Mars and trines lovely Jupiter at 6:35 PM EDT. Engage in conversations with folks you may otherwise avoid. You may learn something new that surprises or even changes your way of thinking.

Enjoy the afternoon, it is the best part of Wednesday.

At 9:40 PM EDT, the Moon opposes heavy hearted Saturn. This may have you head to bed with a difficult reality pressing heavily on your mind. Remember, this is only a Moon transit and will pass before morning.

 

TEMPTATION TO OVERINDULGE

Thursday, August 17, 2017:

At 2:39 AM EDT, beautiful Venus forms a challenging square aspect to optimistic Jupiter. This leads you to confront your understanding of your personal values and the importance of beauty and love in your life.

Jar of Peaches by Claude Monet via Wiki Commons

This transit asks that you question your approach to Tuesday’s opposition between Venus and Pluto. Whatever clarity you reached regarding your values is pushed to greater understanding and acceptance. You will find value in looking into the dark spaces within yourself that you would rather not encounter; do so anyway. You will learn something valuable.

You may be tempted to overextend, overindulge, or overspend on Thursday. This aspect will impact the entire day; it may be a good idea to leave your credit cards at home as freely spending is a common response to this transit, especially if it is highlighted in your personal chart. The over optimism of this transit may balance some of the challenges we are all working through while offering hope for the future.

At 12:13 PM EDT, the Moon enters home loving Cancer. This will settle your mind and open your heart. Spend the evening close to loved ones.

 

TENSION BUILDS; SHOW LOVE

Friday, August 18, 2017:

Do you feel the tension building? We are in the Dark Phase of the Moon as we rapidly approach the great Solar Eclipse which will come to perfection on Monday afternoon at 2:26 PM EDT.

There is much being said about this eclipse and this time it is not unwarranted hype. We are in very intense, transformative times. This is a pivot point and is exposed clearly in the collective dramas of our times. On a personal level, pay extra attention if you have planets or sensitive points near 29° Leo (or the other fixed signs: Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius).

Friday begins with an easy, even gentle edge as the Moon moves through sensitive, loving Cancer. The morning may bring a touch of dreaminess with the involvement of Neptune.

At 4:45 PM EDT, the Cancer Moon opposes Pluto and several hours later, she squares Jupiter. You may want to spend time alone to head off potential family power dynamics. In relating with loved ones and family, be aware of the heightened sensitivity and do your best to show loving compassion, patience, and kindness.

SEXY DATE NIGHT

Saturday, August 19, 2017:

Don’t be surprised when the early morning energies feel a bit disruptive or bring surprising changes that come unexpectedly. The sensitive Cancer Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unruly Uranus at 11:17 AM EDT.

This may be just the push you need to jump start the day! At 1:55 PM EDT, the Moon enters playful, dramatic, and boisterous Leo. This is a perfect night for a party or other social fun engagements. Shortly after midnight, Mars forms a delightful sextile aspect to expand fun-loving Jupiter suggesting a great night for a fun, playful, sexy date.

 

PREPARE FOR CHANGE

Sunday, August 20, 2017:

In the very early hours of Sunday morning, Mars forms an encouraging sextile aspect to expansive Jupiter helping us to regard the future with hope, positive aspirations, and high regard for the future even as we feel the shifting sands upon us.

Sunday brings with it high-energy, excitement, determination, and the desire to take action. We are building strongly to Monday’s Solar Eclipse. Prepare for a profound shift in whatever area 29° Leo falls in your chart… and, of course, the profound movement within the culture is obvious to all of us!

Perhaps, it is time to contact me for a consultation.

In the meantime, enjoy the Sun in playful, warm Leo. At 11:55 PM EDT, use your physical energy constructively and with kindness. Make love before you sleep; you will be glad you did.

It is hard to imagine that I didn’t get the post prepared this week. I apologize and promise to be back on board next week.

I guess I was having such a good time, I got totally distracted! Perhaps, my vacation got away from me! I believe this is the first time I have missed a post in 10 years!!

Monday’s is here and I will have the dailies on Facebook… perhaps, I will send them out here each day as well. 🙂

DESTRUCTION LEADS TO TRANSFORMATION

Monday, July 10, 2017:

Don’t expect that the power of Sunday’s Full Moon will have been released by Monday morning as the intensity around us only increases.

Early in the day at 12:35 AM EDT, the Sun lines up for an opposition with Pluto, representing the destruction required for major transformation. Sleep may well have been difficult last night due to the pressures of worry, regret, or fear. Examine and face the truths that your fears rest upon in order to release the hold they have on you.

With the Moon’s entrance into Aquarius (1:35 AM EDT), you are able to detach yourself emotionally from fear as you gain a new and more interesting perspective on the future.

As the day progresses, the quirky Aquarius Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to social Venus (2:03 PM EDT), enabling you to seek a path forward with like-minded friends and acquaintances.

At 6:38 PM EDT, as the Moon opposes communicative Mercury, you are asked to bring your serious thoughts and ideas to the table. The world needs each of us to speak out with our collective voice of truth.

 

 

BREAKING FREE OF RESTRICTION

Tuesday, July 11, 2017:

Whatever possible crises you felt enmeshed in since the Full Moon, they reach a release point on Tuesday. This will be felt as relief and an intellectual clarity related to the path ahead.

With the Moon in Aquarius, the way forward may involve the necessity to break free of any situation or relationship that feels boring or restrictive to your individuality. You may be tempted to take action, to say or do something that is surprising, even shocking to others and may have unexpected consequences. The Aquarius Moon is a good time to shake up the status quo and push yourself and others to find a new “out of the box” perspective.

Gather with others to share unusual ideas, plans, and unexpected perspectives for how to proceed into the future with the needs of the greater human family in mind.  Aquarius is an Air sign and with the Moon in this cool, detached sign you will be more involved in the analysis and exploration of emotional circumstances than in the feeling of them.

Enjoy the cool sense of experiencing life objectively.

 

 

FAIRYTALES AND POETRY

Wednesday, July 12, 2017:

Grădină cu floarea soarelui by Gustav Klimt via Wiki Commons

When Wednesday begins, we find ourselves in a state of cool, intellectual detachment along with a dose of inspiration as we look toward the originality of our expression. The inventive Aquarius Moon is heightened in her innovative expression with a sextile aspect to quirky Uranus at 8:41 AM EDT. Don’t expect this sharp, unconventional view to last!

When the Moon enters fanciful Pisces at 11:51 AM EDT, sensitivity returns with a depth that may surprise you. While the Moon moves through elusive, sensitive Pisces, you can anticipate feeling deeply. You may experience a sense of vulnerability as boundaries dissolve between yourself and others. Watch your tendencies toward passive susceptibility.

Don’t allow alcohol, drugs, or other unhealthy vices to carry you away. If you are having a difficult time keeping your feet on the ground, take time for meditation or allow yourself to indulge in whimsical imagination. Write a poem or a fairytale1

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:41 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 11:51 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

DREAM, DANCE, & MEDITATE

Thursday, July 13, 2017:

The theme of sensitivity and mystical inspiration from Wednesday continues throughout the day on Thursday as the Moon dances her way through elusive, spacey Pisces.

As that gentle Pisces Moon joins forces with sometimes bewildering Neptune (at 2:27 PM EDT), it may be challenging to find clarity within your current circumstances. Do not try to lean heavily on logic or analytical thinking; this is a day to work with the right side of your brain, the side that has confidence in intuition and creativity.

Rest and allow yourself to dream, transcend the mundane, make art, dance, and meditate.

 

 

A FRIDAY NIGHT FOR DANCING

Friday, July 14, 2017:

Friday may begin with a touch of crankiness, thanks to the Pisces Moon forming a square aspect to Saturn at 6:08 AM EDT. Allow any irritability to pass. Nothing whatsoever will come of it as long as you keep quiet, do not engage it, and let it go.

Remember, Moon transits pass quickly!

The afternoon is energized when the soft Pisces Moon forms a flowing trine to assertive Mars at 1:01 PM EDT.

The most significant and potent transit of the day comes with an opportunistic sextile from mental Mercury to expansive Jupiter at 4:45 PM EDT. Your thoughts become more optimistic and you’re able to express your beliefs in a way that is likely to be well received. With lavish Jupiter in relationship-oriented Libra and brainy Mercury in playful Leo, your communications will exude enthusiasm, gaiety, playfulness, and fun in your intimate relationships. This will last throughout the evening hours.

Regardless of how you feel earlier on Friday, plan to go dancing on Friday night! When the time comes. you will be glad you made the plans!

At 7:53 PM EDT, the Moon enters vigorous, forceful Aries and wakes you up to the need to move your physical body with a bit of vigor and drive. Get out for a bike ride, a run, a brisk walk, or go dancing!

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:01 PM EDT until she enters Aries at 7:53 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

ACTION AND PLEASURE

Saturday, July 15, 2017:

Saturday should be a good day for independent action. Go out into the world on your own, do something that takes a bit of extra courage and determination. The Moon is on her own and moving through Aries for the bulk of the day.

When the evening comes, there also arrives a renewed desire for connection. At 5:41 PM EDT, the assertive Aries Moon forms an exciting sextile aspect to relationship-oriented Venus. This suggests a lovely evening, you will enjoy the opportunity to express appreciation and gratitude to those you love.

If you stay up late, things only get better as the Moon opposes Jupiter at 11:04 PM EDT. You may find yourself in a position of wanting to impress someone. You will want to show yourself as your most generous, optimistic, confident self.

Don’t go overboard but do enjoy a lovely Saturday night.

 

 

FIERCELY DYNAMIC

Sunday, July 16, 2017:

Sunday’s fierce and dynamic Aries Moon forms difficult and challenging aspects throughout the entire day. You may encounter issues of anger, power dynamics, and internal upheaval. It would be a good idea to keep a low profile; use any excess physical energy in a solitary endeavor but please keep safety in mind.

The Third Quarter Moon is exact at 3:26 PM EDT as the aggressive Aries Moon forms an uncomfortable square to the nurturing, protective Cancer Sun. You may feel overly controlled by family situations and responsibilities. Again, roll with the punches, keep your head down, and offer kindness when you are able to and when it is appropriate.

Monday will bring a sense of calm with the dependable solid Taurus Moon. We will be glad for it!

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:19 PM EDT until she enters Taurus in the early hours of 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 any significant future impact.

__________________________________________________________
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transits between the planets.  I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods.  I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

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