Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 20, 2018 through August 26, 2018

 

Over the first few days of this week, Mercury will get up to speed and life will begin easing back to normal. This is also the final week of Mars retrograde and it will be a relief indeed when Mars turns direct next Monday morning.

Just as Thursday begins the Sun enters focused and perfectionistic Virgo. The shift of the Sun from Leo to Virgo is bittersweet indeed. While the Sun moves through Leo we tend to feel more generous and playful than usual. We want to spend the days on vacation or at least on a local beach.

Now as the Sun enters Virgo our minds turn fully in the direction sending the kids back to school, going back to school ourselves, and enjoying shorter cooler days.

This is the time to begin a new study or re-engage with one that still holds your interest even though it has been on hold for some weeks/ months.

  • Are you passionate about astrology but unsure how to begin your studies?

  • Do you know just enough about astrology to realize how much you DON’T know?

  • Do you have a deep understanding of astrology but don’t know how to have a meaningful conversation with a client?

  • Are you ready to take yourself seriously as an astrologer and make a living helping others with your passion?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, contact me TODAY for a FREE CLARIFYING CONVERSATION.

Astrology is one of the earliest attempts made by man to find the order hidden behind or within the confusing and apparent chaos that exists in the world.”

IMAGINE & PLAN AN ADVENTURE

Monday, August 20, 2018:

Monday is a feel-good kind of day. With the Moon in Sagittarius, you probably feel generally optimistic about your life and future. The only aspect today is a trine from the joyful Sagittarius Moon to the playful Leo Sun. This occurs at 7:47 PM EDT. This should be a great evening for social interactions or simply for enjoying where ever you find yourself and with whoever you happen to be with. There are few complexities on Monday. Allow yourself to engage in simple and joyful gatherings. If you have thoughts about an upcoming trip, a party, or an imagined adventure, now (before 7:47 PM at which time the Moon becomes VOC) would be a great time to set up your plans. Set the date, book your Airbnb, confirm with your co-travelers. Thank goodness that Mercury is direct!

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* from 7:47 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn just after midnight. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

WORK DEEPLY

Tuesday, August 21, 2018:

You may wake early on Tuesday morning with unusual, innovative, and yet solid ideas about how to move forward with your work in the world. Once the day gets into full swing it is another quiet day, much like Monday except the feeling environment is very very different. Whereas Monday’s energies encouraged thoughts of travel and adventure, on Tuesday you’re more concerned with hard work, business, and accomplishment. With the Moon in Capricorn consider the effort required to reach your desired level of accomplishment in building your career or reputation. This is a day to work deeply, with purpose, alone.

 

DAYTIME WORK – EVENING PLAY

Wednesday, August 22, 2018:

Wednesday brings another day to focus on issues of work and business accomplishment as the Moon continues through hard-working Capricorn. This is a more complex day than Wednesday and you may encounter a few specific pitfalls. First, a challenging square from the Moon to Venus early in the morning leaves you feeling pulled between the need to get work done and the desire (Venus in Libra) to spend the day with your partner or in the pursuit of love or beauty. Spending the day with your lover may seem like a good idea in the morning but the Moon square Pluto at 2:46 PM EDT does not support that idea for the afternoon.

You are likely to encounter power struggles in some area. Do your best to not take the bait if someone seems to be instigating a reaction. Get out of the situation; go for a walk, by the time you return the issue most likely will have passed.

Enjoy a fun playful evening as the Sun leaves Leo to enter Virgo by the time you start the day on Thursday.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead or even your next best steps?

Let Astrolore help you see your life from a new perspective.

Together we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current reality, and your life purpose.

Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed view of your life and circumstances.

Make your appointment today! 

 

SUN ENTERS VIRGO, BE OF SERVICE

Thursday, August 23, 2018:

Shortly after midnight on Wednesday night (eastern time) the Sun enters Virgo.

Since July 22nd the Sun has been in Leo, the Fixed Fire sign that is ruled by the all-powerful super bright hot Sun. Each year as the Sun moves through Leo most of us in the Northern Hemisphere focus on spending time at the beach, having fun, and enjoying the warmth of Summer. Leo season is a flamboyant, exuberant time of year and as much as we enjoy it, most folks are somewhat relieved when the Sun enters the orderly analytical sign of Virgo. Virgo is a mutable Earth sign ruled by Mercury, the planet that represents intellect and communications. Now it is time to go back to school, take up a new study, or refocus on projects that require meticulous attention, humility, and a lack of drama. The Sun will remain in Virgo until September 22nd. While the Sun is in Virgo we are inspired to diligently work to reach our potential. The house that holds Virgo in your chart will represent the area where you will focus effort to improve yourself. The purpose of this improvement is not for selfish gain but in order to be of service to others.

At 12:56 PM EDT the Moon leaves serious hard-working Capricorn behind to move into Aquarius. Consider how you can use your growing potential to be of service not only to others individually but to the greater collective. Aquarius has the ability to see outside any boxes we may be metaphorically stuck in. Open your mind to how your productive dedication can improve the world for all.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* from 10:19 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 12:56 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

EXPRESS YOUR UNIQUE INTELLECT

Friday, August 24, 2018:

Friday brings a day with few complications as we adjust to the realities of the Sun in Virgo and the Aquarius Moon grows toward its Full phase in a few days time. As she (the Moon) grows our understanding expands. Friday is a day best suited for wild, innovative thinking and gathering with others of like mind. With the Moon in Aquarius, you will do well to seek insights and genius ideas in the company of others. Your emotions generally will not get in the way as you are able to set them aside and view your life from a more detached viewpoint. You may find yourself more interested in the plight of humanity than in your own possibly pesky emotional state. Aquarius suggests the need to march to the beat of a different drummer. Allow yourself to not only engage with others who are different from you but to express the parts of yourself that are most unique. Others will have more understanding of your quirks, and yet it will matter less to you if they do not. Enjoy time with others, engage in intellectual conversations about the state of the world, consider what you can do to help the suffering of others in the world.

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

 

FOCUS ON WILD STABILITY

Saturday, August 25, 2018:

Throughout the day on Saturday, the Virgo Sun forms an Earth Grand Trine with Uranus (in Taurus) and Saturn (in Capricorn). A Grand Trine is a lovely configuration that creates a contained flow of energies. You may notice that you feel grounded and capable of what you put your attention on. What you focus on will likely be something highly unusual and yet ultimately quite practical. You will probably prefer to work alone as you experience a sense of self-containment, realizing that you will perform your best efforts on your own. Open your mind/ heart to new innovative ideas. You have the ability to bring deep practicality to wild unusual ideas, plans, and projects. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars) in the very early degrees of any Earth Sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) this will offer you a particularly powerful flow of practical wild energies.

The Moon continues through Aquarius as it prepares for full illumination with the Pisces Full Moon on Sunday. The Aquarius Moon encourages you to break out of any routines or ruts that hold you back. You can break bad habits most easily under the influence of the objective Aquarius Moon.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (ALL DAY) from 12:39 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 1:32 AM EDT on Sunday morning. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

PISCES FULL MOON – GO WITH THE FLOW

Sunday, August 26, 2018:

Sunday brings us to the Pisces Full Moon at 7:57 AM EDT. Think back to the New Moon Solar Eclipse of August 11th. Are you able to see how something significant has progressed over these two weeks? Do you see the significance of a seed you planted, an intention you committed to, or something that occurred at that time? If you can see the trajectory over these two weeks it will help you develop the path ahead.

The Pisces Moon will help you go with the flow and perhaps even let challenges bypass you altogether. The day may be easier altogether if you can utilize a sense of watery spaciousness. Delve into music, poetry, meditation, or other spiritual concerns. Use your imagination and take the opportunity to dream.

At 3:20 PM EDT Venus forms a difficult square aspect to Pluto. Venus represents how we form relationships, what we most deeply value, our money, love, and resources. Pluto represents destruction and transformation. How are your most personal values pushing you in the direction of change? Is it possible for deep powerful change to be an easy process or does something have to be destroyed to make space for what is new and growing in you? Watch for power struggles, hidden issues, or deep disturbances in your most personal relationships. Perhaps this would be a good day to spend the afternoon alone working on serious goals for the future. What do you want your most intimate relationship to look like? How can you become the person who can embody the changes you want to see in your close relationships and finances? You can only change yourself. Grow/ transform yourself into the person you want to be to live the life you want to live.

 

“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.

DREAMY MONDAY

Monday, July 30, 2018:

The cosmic movement and planetary impacts on Monday are relatively quiet. The Moon passes through Pisces forming only a lovely trine aspect to Jupiter at bedtime offering good sleep and sweet dreams. This is not a day when you are anxious to get to work or bother with much accomplishment at all. You may feel called to rest or dream the day away.

If you suspect that folks are avoiding you, rest assured that they may be doing just that or perhaps your imagination is running away with you. Let the concern go and enjoy your own open space of private consciousness.

Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, but deeply emotional energies. Monday is a good day for meditation, spending time on water, allowing yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watching movies, or making music. Enjoy the rest and sweetness of the early days of this week.

 

WINE, MEDITATION, AND MOVIES

Tuesday, July 31, 2018:

We are blessed on Tuesday with another day of the Moon in dreamy Pisces. Indeed it is a mixed blessing. If you have to accomplish things that require determination or fortitude you will not be happy with where you find yourself on Tuesday. If, however, you are an artist, a dreamer, or a poet at heart you will welcome another day in this gentle space. While the Moon is in Pisces we all feel softer, more adaptable, sensitive, and vulnerable than usual. Remember this in your interactions with others. They may put on a brave face but underneath they are deeply aware of their human susceptibilities.

Find an emotional retreat for the day if you are able. You may be drawn to water, poetry, and music. Compassion, intuition, and imagination are easily tapped into. Enjoy a movie, a glass of wine, or time on your meditation cushion on Monday evening.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* from 6:42 PM EDT until she enters Aries on Wednesday morning at 6:55 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

THE HIGH COST OF ANGER

Wednesday, August 1, 2018:

Wednesday morning brings a rather dramatic shift in how you feel. Suddenly you can’t imagine how you ‘wasted’ the past few days and may feel the need to make up for lost time. Early Wednesday morning the Moon enters assertive, action-oriented Aries bringing attention to your personal needs and desires.

However, there are more important things to consider with Mars forming a challenging square to Uranus on Wednesday evening. This will be felt for several days, so familiarize yourself with whatever issue that is asking for your attention.

Because of Mars’ current retrograde, this is more than a passing issue, this is a story that can be tracked from its actual beginning in February 2017 to the more recent chapter which began in mid-May, the core of the story occurs now, and this chapters conclusion which comes in mid-September. Look to the houses in your chart that hold Aquarius and Taurus as you consider how you have used your drive, forceful ambition, anger, and/or sexual energies in ways that have not served you or those around you well. Do you know what this story is? How can you bring healing to the results of your own misused anger and help support others in doing the same?

The Pisces Moon is VOC* until she enters Aries on at 6:55 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?  Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything. Together we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose. Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

Make your appointment today!

 

KEEP SAFETY TOP OF MIND

Thursday, August 2, 2018:

Continue your contemplation on Thursday regarding your past use/misuse of anger, drive, and aggression. Determine to use these powerful energies with more conscious awareness and kindness toward others.

With the Moon in Aries, you may feel more inclined toward individual acts of courage and daring. You may be tempted to do something you normally would shy away from. With Wednesday’s square between retrograde Mars and Uranus very much still in effect, you may not want to actually try those things just yet! Your focus is inclined to selfishness and impatience. You may be impulsive and not have the level of caution necessary for skydiving, rock climbing, or whatever courageous physical endeavor you are drawn to. If you do engage in such activities this week, consciously keep your safety top of mind.

You will want to engage your body in some good physical activity so go dancing or make love.

The Aries Moon is VOC* from 10:52 PM EDT until she enters Taurus on Friday afternoon at 3:51 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

THOUGHTS ON A FRIDAY NIGHT

Friday, August 3, 2018:

A generally quiet day gives way to a more sensual evening/ weekend with a bit of excitement added to mix things up. When the Moon enters stable Taurus at 3:51 PM EDT your heart settles down and your ideas for the evening focus on comfort and connection. However, as the Moon joins with Uranus at 8:34PM EDT you may find yourself surprised by unusual circumstances. This could bring with it either excitement or anxiety. At 10:07 PM EDT the Moon trine Saturn stabilizes whatever brought the upset earlier in the evening.

The energies of Friday evening could be utilized in several distinct ways. You could find fun and pleasure in social circumstances with a more unusual eccentric group of friends or you may prefer to find unique ways to engage and connect with a lover.

The Aries Moon is VOC* until she enters Taurus at 3:51 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

There is something out there. Astrology is like a game of chess with an invisible partner. We set out the board and the rules, make a move, and then find that the pieces are moving, as if by an invisible hand.”

~ Noel Tyl

A SATURDAY OF QUIET CONTENTMENT

Saturday, August 4, 2018:

The Taurus Moon squares the Leo Sun on Saturday at 2:18 PM EDT. This suggests a certain amount of stress as your emotions are looking for calm, quiet stability and yet at the same time you long for playful expressions of dance, parties, and drama. Endeavor to balance these energies as you consider what needs to be released from last weeks Lunar Eclipse.

Content yourself with a quiet Saturday evening. This is not a day or an evening for excitement, socializing, or parties. Stay home, enjoy your family or close intimate friends. Get to sleep early, sometimes, even in summer that is what is needed.

 

INDULGE YOUR SENSES

Sunday, August 5, 2018:

With the Moon in sensual slow moving Taurus, you are able to experience life more fully though your senses. This is a day to slow down, be quiet and still. There is no need to push yourself in the service of any accomplishment. You may want to indulge your senses with good food, good sex, good music, and a massage. Your senses seek arousal. Get outdoors in nature, weed your garden, and walk barefoot on the earth. Listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth is constantly offering.

It is a Sunday, Mercury and Mars are both retrograde, allow yourself to procrastinate just for today. It won’t hurt anyone.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* from 7:47 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 9:32 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a 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. 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…”

This week begins in the darkest phase of the Moon. Allow what is no longer useful to fall away. Thursday night, we come to the Cancer New Moon/ Solar Eclipse. Don’t forget to do your New Moon ritual. It will be best to do that on Friday.

Keep your ritual simple. With this New Moon occurring in Cancer, the intention you set will involve nurturance, sensitivity, kindness, and love.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Cancer, it will help you clarify what intention is needed. For example, if Cancer is held in your 1st house, set an intention to nurture and care for yourself, in the 4th house, set an intention to be more sensitive with your family members. If Cancer is in your 7th house, perhaps you could pay more attention to and show more kindness to your partner, or a close friend, or in the 10th house, you may need to develop closer bonds with your coworkers or nurture your business more deeply.

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that requires sensitivity and the development of loving and protecting others.

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

 

 

The New Moon is on Thursday night… do your ritual on Friday!

~~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 Cancer New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of kindness and love in the development of deep family security. 

 

 

 

RELEASE PROCRASTINATION

Monday, July 9, 2018:

Don’t be surprised if you wake up Monday morning with an overriding desire to procrastinate whatever is pressing for your attention. The day begins with the Moon still in comfort seeking, sometimes lazy Taurus. Enjoy those last few moments of cuddling with your pillows or your partner.

We can’t blame the Taurus Moon for this procrastination as Mercury forms a square aspect to Jupiter in the early hours of the day. You may feel strongly resistant to others direction. This is a day you don’t want a boss at work.

At 12:59 PM EDT the Moon enters Gemini, lightening up the rest of the day. The procrastination will fall away and you can re-engage with whatever needs to be done with less internal protest.

At 10:31 PM EDT Venus leaves Leo behind to enter humble Virgo. Venus has been dancing and playing in Leo since June 13th without a shred of modesty. Now she will slow down to develop some refinement and discrimination.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* briefly from 12:10 PM until she enters Gemini At 12:59 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

EXPAND FORWARD

Tuesday, July 10, 2018:

Since March 9th Jupiter, the planet that represents expansion, higher understanding, belief, and growth, has been retrograde. During the time of Jupiters retrograde, we have been internally revising our beliefs and understanding of our personal path of growth. Now it is time to trust that revision has done its work and you are ready to move forward with a new enlightened outlook. The effort behind the scenes that was necessary has been completed. With Jupiter moving through Scorpio and its time in this intense and deeply sexual sign has intimately involved with the ‘#MeToo’ movement, I am watching the news carefully this week.

The Moon continues its path through Gemini encouraging communication, curiosity, and the gathering of information. We learn so much through stories. This is a great day to listen to the stories of others and tell our own.

BALANCE WITH LOVE

Wednesday, July 11, 2018:

The mixed energies on Wednesday may be a bit confusing and even disorienting. The morning is quiet, with a VOC Gemini Moon do your best to rest your mind.

As you move deeper into the day you feel pulled in several directions. First, you can’t help but be aware of the dark intensity building as the opposition between the Sun and Pluto is exact early Thursday morning. This powerful transit brings a clear view of the depth, hard work, and possible darkness that has been building over the past 6 months. Don’t turn away. Look directly at what is obvious, accept reality. This aspect will be exact on Thursday morning and will impact our lives for several days.

At the same time you are probably feeling a level of excitement, anticipation, and the opening of possibility as Venus, newly in Virgo, forms a flowing trine aspect to unusual innovative Uranus. Open your arms and your heart to accept a gift of beauty, love, or even finances from the universe. Keep your eyes open to what is being offered. Say yes.

At 1:58 PM EDT the Moon enters Cancer encouraging you to use love and your nurturing heart to balance these energies. Spend time with family and children. Cook together, love together.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* until she enters Cancer at 1:58 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything.

CANCER NEW MOON/ SOLAR ECLIPSE

Thursday, July 12, 2018:

The overriding issue of Thursday is clearly the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer and the opposition of both the Sun and Moon to Pluto in Capricorn. It is true that the Sun opposes Pluto once every year, conjunct Pluto once every year, and forms a square aspect to the Sun twice each year. Therefore it is important to understand that we are not unfamiliar with this combination of energies. The fact that we have this at the same time as a New Moon/ Solar Eclipse intensifies it considerably. This could well be a pivot point culturally and/or personally. Be mindful of the fact that everyone’s emotions are heightened. Pay special attention to your New Moon ritual as whatever seed you plant for a new beginning at this New Moon will have far more strength pushing its growth forward. With Pluto in opposition, you have a clear view of what has been building over the past 6 months. Whatever began then is now fully illuminated in all its power or darkness. Open your eyes to look deeply.

Because the Cancer New Moon/ Solar Eclipse is at 10:48 PM EDT please wait and do your Full Moon Ritual on Friday. See instructions for your ritual above.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* from10:48 PM EDT until she enters Leo on Friday at 1:30 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

A NIGHT OF FUN AND LAUGHTER

Friday, July 13, 2018:

Friday starts quietly as we continue the process begun at the new lunar cycle (the Cancer New Moon on Thursday). Assimilate what you have learned over the past 24 hours.

At1:30 PM EDT the Moon releases her sensitivity and enters boisterous playful Leo, asking that we abandon our challenges and simply enjoy a beautiful summer weekend. At 5:11 PM EDT the dramatic Leo Moon forms a challenging aspect to Uranus. I suspect this will be just the push you need to get away from any problems lurking around and simply engage in social exuberance and creative self-expression. Part of you wants to stay home and wallow in some old story. Push yourself, you will be glad you did. This is a night for dancing and engaging with others. Make it easy for others to join you for a night of fun and laughter.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* until she enters Leo at 1:30 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino

STABILIZE LOVE & FINANCES

Saturday, July 14, 2018:

Saturday should offer a day of gentle stabilization. Beauty, finances, and love should feel available and the flow of life is one of ease. The smooth trine aspect between Venus and Saturn is exact in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Consider what began late last December. Did you start a new project, a new habit, a new intention or idea at that time regarding something that you value highly? Whatever began then the results were clear by late May and now you are able to flow easily in the stream of steadfast love, partnership or financial security that you have worked to build over this time. It may be subtle or it may be profound depending on your personal chart and how you have managed this cycle. This lovely energy offered up on a Saturday with the Moon in expressive Leo is wonderful to contemplate. Spend the day with loved ones, expressing and forming solid bonds and making plans for the future.

The Leo Moon is VOC* from 7:11 PM EDT until she enters Virgo on Sunday at 1:31 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

PROJECTS, TASKS, KINDNESS

Sunday, July 15, 2018:

By the time you wake on Sunday, the Moon has entered practical hardworking Virgo. The Moon sets the tone for each day and changes sign every 2 ½ days. With the Moon now in Virgo we find ourselves more serious, dedicated, and thoughtful; you may find yourself more critical and detail oriented as well. This is a good time to accomplish a project that requires detailed effort and efficiency. Being so close to the New Moon, this is a great time to begin a new health or fitness regime. Watch the tendency to be overly critical of yourself and others.

On Sunday evening the Moon forms a Grand Trine to Uranus and Saturn. You are able to work with both excitement and stability seamlessly. What is most unusual may ground you and your most solid qualities will help to show you a more progressive path forward. A good day for projects, tasks, and kindness. Find innovative ways to ground and stabilize your experience.

“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.

 

Words of praise from Astrolore’s students:

“I have been working with Laurie for several months now and she has really helped me become familiar with the language of astrology. I had treated astrology like a hobby for many years and she inspired me to delve into the subject with a new perspective. I still have much to learn, but Laurie’s lessons have helped me to feel confident that by using her techniques to ask the right questions, the client will get a sense of themselves and lead to a satisfying consultation. I am very grateful to have found such an intelligent and inspirational mentor to study with!” ~Rhonda (Colorado)

 

I am so lucky to have found Laurie! I was searching for how to compose an astrological sentence, so of course, I googled it…I came upon a tutorial on just how to do it. I was shocked that it made so much sense! I was so pleased that I decided to e-mail Laurie and told her my story. She suggested a consultation and so we spoke, and we clicked! I have been studying with Astrolore since January and it has been an extraordinary experience. Laurie is a fun, creative, and brilliant astrologer and teacher. I can make mistakes with her and know she will kindly correct or look at it from my perspective. She is very humble and is always learning, even if it’s from her students. I am so grateful that I found her, and I am completely hooked on her methods and ideology. Love, love, love! ~Lauri (New Jersey)

Not the Dailies – Early Words about Next Week

 

Don’t fret.

The full dailies will be in your mail tomorrow as always!

 

Today I wanted to alert you to the high points of the week ahead:

The upcoming week offers challenges and deep struggles alongside areas of free flow and excitement. Which are you expecting/ preparing for?

Open your heart to the positive flow of excitement, stability, and love that is seeking its way into your spirit.

Assist others who you see reeling from your own areas of deep challenge and struggle.

Understand that if you are grappling so are those around you. As you help those around you with similar issues your own challenges reverse or relieve themselves. Kindness soothes and heals the soul.

Thursday will bring with it the most intense day. The New Moon comes at 20degrees Cancer along with an opposition to Pluto. Open your eyes to a long-hidden issue that now seeks healing. You are able to recognize the seed that needs planting, it is the one that will grow your heart beyond this old worn out problem. With the understanding you gain on this issue now, you are able (and required) to help others as you move forward.

 

The most significant challenge of the week (Sun oppose Pluto) will play out in this area of your life. Check for both your Sun Sign and your Rising Sign/Ascendant.
