PISCES SEASON BRINGS DEEP SENSITIVITY

Monday, February 18, 2019:

The week begins with much astrological activity. You can anticipate a bit of excitement along with the need to plant a seed of seriousness in partnerships or love. The Sun forms a delightful sextile aspect to Uranus just before it enters Pisces bringing a sharp sense of excitement to your dreams and imagination. Significant changes are on the horizon that you are just beginning to get a glimmer of. With Venus conjunct Saturn you will also be offered an opportunity to stabilize your most dearly held values regarding love and money.

Excitement, imagination, ambition, and love join forces to move you into the Pisces Season. At 6:03 PM EST the Sun enters this Mutable Water sign, opening each of us to themes of sensitivity, compassion, and inspiration. While the Sun is in Pisces we encounter deep imagination and are motivated by selflessness, empathy, and intangible depths of sensitivity. These coming weeks are good for connecting with an elusive dream, taking up meditation, writing poetry, listening to music and allowing yourself to transcend the mundane world. It may be a challenge to keep the solid ground under your feet, keep your most grounded friends nearby to assist you. If you are a very grounded person be prepared to help others hold steady.

With the Moon still in Leo allow a full range of playful imagination. Go ahead and bring some fun into the day.

 
 

VIRGO FULL MOON: ILLUMINATION OF EFFORT

Tuesday, February 19, 2019:

Before the day really begins Mercury, the planet of thought and communication joins with Neptune bringing a strong focus to imagination, inspiration, and mystical thought patterns.

Reality will catch up with you as the very practical Virgo Full Moon reaches peak illumination at 10:53 AM EST. What is illuminated during a Full Moon depends on several things. First, consider what sign the Moon is in and what house holds it in your horoscope. This full Moon is in the industrious, analytical sign of Virgo. Where has your focus been over the past two weeks regarding issues of effort, work, and dedication? The results of your efforts should be clear now, showing you those areas that need adjustment and/or attention. The trine aspect from the Moon to Mars in consistent reliable Taurus suggests the availability of steadfast energy to push those efforts forward. Go ahead and pat yourself on the back for efforts well done and take the extra step of forming a plan for analysis and improvement moving forward.

With a lovely sextile aspect from Mercury to Saturn before bedtime, your mind leaves all vestiges of restlessness and confusion behind and heads toward sleep on solid ground.

BRING PRACTICAL EFFORT TO ELUSIVE ENDEAVORS

Wednesday, February 20, 2019:

The passive sensitivity that the Pisces Sun highlights over the coming weeks is focalized as the Moon speaks with Neptune at 10:23 AM EST. Allow yourself to flow between a variety of emotional states as the perfectionistic Virgo Moon engages in conversations with nearly all the planets throughout the day.

With the Moon in Virgo, you may notice yourself drawn to practical activities or to a practical approach to more elusive endeavors. You may find yourself organizing and analyzing everything you do. It may be difficult for ‘good-enough’ to be good enough. Don’t allow a perceived need for perfection to stop your progress toward bringing your dreams to reality. Work on projects and tasks that will benefit from paying particular attention to details. You may seriously want to do the simple tasks of daily life, wash and fold the laundry, dust your bookshelves, clean out a junk drawer. While you are at it read Maria Kondo’s book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

LET YOURSELF OFF THE HOOK

Thursday, February 21, 2019:

Following several days of analysis and working on the details of your life and any projects you are engaged with, you are now ready to turn your attention to good friends, partners, and socialization. The Moon enters diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra at 9:18 AM EST. As the Moon gently flows through this charming, pleasant sign keep in mind that Libra is an Air sign which is fundamentally intellectual. What you seek are intellectual companions, friends, and social interactions. Enjoy cultural activities, go to a museum, a concert, or a small gathering with folks that stimulate your mind. It may be challenging to feel confident in your own opinions, take a stand, be decisive, or speak. Let yourself off the hook. Enjoy listening to others and let yourself see and understand every side of an issue. There is always another day to make a decision, take action, or speak up.

PLANT A SEED TO DEEPEN LOVE

Friday, February 22, 2019:

As the weekend approaches you may be asked to consider exactly how much of your most unusual beliefs and spiritual understanding to share with others. Make sure you are talking with folks who are on a similar path of understanding before sharing too much with too much innocent enthusiasm. You could find yourself saying more than the person you are engaging with can accept or even understand.

With the Moon in Libra, you long for social niceties, beauty, and balance in your environment. You may hope to create an evening of lovely romance, however, there is likely to be more intensity in the connection than you may anticipate. This is about far more than sweetness and beauty. At 10:52 PM EST Venus conjunct Pluto begins a cycle of great depth, intensification of Love, and the development of an empowered partnership. Spend the upcoming weekend developing a firm, solid, lasting, profound connection with someone you love. If you are alone or without a truly significant partnership, spend the weekend understanding and developing your personal deep values.

 
 

FIND A NEW FRAME FOR AN OLD STORY

Saturday, February 23, 2019:

Consider the story you are telling or the picture you are painting; how does that story support the new cycle of love that is beginning? Listen to how you have been telling an old story, change your perspective and tell it from your new outlook. You may be surprised to learn how that simple act will change your path forward. The stories you tell now have the power to magnify your connection to love and increase your understanding of your most significant personal values.

At 10:57 AM EST the Moon enters the deep waters of Scorpio bringing your attention to powerful buried emotions. You may find yourself willing to take a personal risk by allowing a trusted friend or partner to touch you more acutely than usual. This is a time to get serious with a loved one or spend time alone. Trying to connect on a surface level will leave you both dissatisfied and resentful.

EMPOWERMENT AND HEALING

Sunday, February 24, 2019:

With the Moon passing through Scorpio, you are naturally inclined to examine the profound, somewhat frightening side of life and love. You know that in order to grow, at times you must allow devastation to leave the ground bare for new growth. Think about how whole forests are burned to make space for the new forest to grow refreshed.

Scorpio focuses attention on the hidden emotions that most folks prefer to avoid. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we are able to feel more deeply and observe our hidden emotional motivations with clarity.

Under this Moon, you may be able to get to a deep understanding of an issue that has dogged you for years. Digging into concealed nooks and crannies of your mind and facing profound and difficult hidden truths has the power to transform your life. Do your best to uncover what is calling for empowerment and healing.

 
 

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

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

 

 

FOCUS ON LOYALTY AND CONNECTION

Monday, February 11, 2019:

With the Moon in sensual slow moving Taurus, you are called to experience yourself and your life fully through your senses. This is a day to take things slowly, indulge your senses with yummy food, powerful physical contact, and great music. Get a massage, bring your partner to dinner and a museum, bring flowers into your home.

When the Moon is in stable Taurus your heart settles down and your desires focus on comfort, connection, loyalty, and security.

You are likely to be resistant to change, wanting to create comfort and seek a relaxed escape from the chaos that seems to be a constant in our culture and busy lives.

 

 

CHOOSE WELL

Tuesday, February 12, 2019:

The day continues with the steadfast Taurus Moon allowing a slow sensual awareness to permeate the day. Dane Rudhyar called the First and Last Quarter Moon times of crisis. Keep in mind that crisis implies not only difficulties but opportunities as well. These are the times when we take the future into our own hands and make choices that move our lives in one direction or another. Make a decision now that will lead you in a direction of loyalty and commitment. This is a time when your actions turn you toward or away from your highest expression. Choose well with eyes wide open.

FLASHES OF INSIGHT

Wednesday, February 13, 2019:

The day begins with a conjunction from assertive Mars to wildly unconventional Uranus occurring in the very last degree of Aries. This is the final big bell of Uranus’ long stretch in Aries where it has been since 2011. What have you learned about taking direct action in the house that holds Aries in your chart?

If you are interested in tracking the cycles and understanding what area of your life is being impacted by these cycles, please check out Astrolore’s Patreon page.

Mars conjunct Uranus represents the beginning of a cycle of demanding change, excitement, and the expression of your unique self regardless of the opinions of others. You need to step forth, welcome change and excitement, and break free from some situation in your life that is restricting your path forward.

You may be tempted to take serious risks, to make a sudden change, to jump first and ask questions later. Watch that tendency carefully. Sit with it for a few days. Do not be too reckless or hasty. In a few days time, you will have more clarity. Pay attention to flashes of insight and experiment with what is new. Allow yourself to consider an unexpected and more innovative approach to sexuality and passion.

The Gemini Moon encourages communication and curiosity. You may hear or tell stories that could change your entire trajectory of the coming years. Pay attention to any action that is required of you, watch what unfolds from here.

DELIBERATE RELIABLE ACTION

Thursday, February 14, 2019:

Mars, the planet of direct action and self-determination has been in its own sign of impulsive Aries since the start of 2019. Now as he leaves that hot action-oriented sign behind and enters the patient stable sign of Taurus you can expect a significant change in how you approach your desired accomplishments. Mars is leading you on the way that Uranus will follow in the Spring. Look to the house that holds Taurus in your chart for greater understanding. The deliberate reliable action you take in the coming weeks will open into a groundswell in this area of your life over the coming months.

Mars in Taurus puts strength, reliability, and perseverance into your actions; powerful upheaval and excitement will follow. You are resolute in what you are building. You won’t take quick action but deliberate dependability and consistency will build a strong and powerful foundation.

Focused determination and powerful steadfast action taken over the coming weeks will produce undeniable results.

The Moon continues through Gemini keeping your mind and communications activities and quick even as your actions are slowing down.

 

 

PLAN FOR COMFORT

Friday, February 15, 2019:

You should be able to settle in for a relatively calm day as you prepare for the upcoming weekend. The Moon enters Cancer at 9:02 AM EST setting the emotional tone for the coming few days. Because the Moon is the ruling planet of Cancer you can expect your emotions to seek inward sensitivity and protective nurturing. Plan to spend time with your family and dearest loved ones.

Make sure you have healthy emotional outlets and that you don’t give so much of yourself that you shut down your own needs or end up feeling resentful.

Your home may require attention and this is a good weekend for all domestic activities. Allow yourself to reach for comfort food, spend time cooking, eating and reminiscing about the past.

“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

 

 

SUPPORT AND COMFORT

Saturday, February 16, 2019:

With the Moon moving through the tender emotional realm of Cancer you can expect to be highly influenced by the emotional state of those around you and the physical environment you find yourself in. Chose your environment and companions consciously. If you are able to maintain objectivity in the face of others’ difficulties offer help and nurture, if you are needy yourself right now, place yourself in the company of those who will support and comfort you. Discrimination is important today.

Offer practical protection, kindness, and nurturing to others. Cook for your family and loved ones. While you do so, you must also keep yourself crystal clear about what sensitivities are your own and what you may be picking up from others. It is bound to be a moody day. Burn some sage, clear your space and your heart from negativity.

 

 

SEEK ACTIVE EXPRESSION

Sunday, February 17, 2019:

The day begins with the energy of Venus sextile Neptune. This accentuates the moodiness of the Cancer Moon and you may feel overly soft, sensitive with an inspired mystical edge.

At 10:21 AM EST the Moon enters Leo and for the first time in several days, you may want to get out of the house and join with friends for an afternoon of creative playfulness. Find an active release for this firey energy. Bring your dramatic self-expression into full view. Find children or childlike friends to engage with. Enjoy your most appreciative and expressive friends. 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.

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

 

 

AQUARIUS NEW MOON – INNOVATION & REBELLION
Monday, February 4, 2019:
 
The Aquarius New Moon occurs at 4:04 PM EST just as she forms a lovely sextile aspect to expansive happy Jupiter. This is great news for whatever innovative or humanitarian project you begin over the coming days.
If you have something important that you have considered growing and developing in the area of life indicated by the house that holds Aquarius in your chart, now is the time to begin!
If you are interested in tracking the cycles and understanding what area of your life is being impacted by the cycles of the planets, check out Astrolore’s Patreon page.
If this New Moon is transiting your 1st house it will be good to begin a new way of presenting yourself, if it is happening in your 6th, begin a new health or exercise routine, in the 9th, begin your formal study of astrology with Astrolore!
Wait and do your New Moon ritual on Tuesday or Wednesday. It is good to give a bit of time for the Moon to separate from the ‘beams of the Sun’.
 
AQUARIUS NEW MOON RITUAL
Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase for this Cycle. The Aquarius New Moon suggests that you plant a progressive, innovative seed of humanitarian impact or rebellion.
Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are in this moment. Light another candle as inspiration for what you intend to create. Take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. Then, light the second candle, imagining drawing your intention toward yourself as you physically bring the two candles closer together.
Do this each day for two weeks until at the Full Moon you bring the candles fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created and its ongoing growth.

 

 

EMBRACE YOUR QUIRKS
Tuesday, February 5, 2019:

 

The Moon remains in unconventional objective Aquarius throughout the day. Expect positive social interactions as no one is trying to get an upper hand. This is a great day to pay attention to folks you may not easily understand. The differences in how they view the world won’t annoy or confuse you but will more likely pique your curiosity.
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 if they don’t, you won’t really care.
Allow the more rebellious and innovative parts of yourself to emerge. Break out of your routines and release long-held habits that hold you back.
This is a day well suited for unusual, 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 won’t get in the way as you are able to set them aside and view your life from a more detached viewpoint. You are more interested in the big picture and less interested in personal details of life.

REST, MEDITATE, & DREAM
Wednesday, January 6, 2019:

 

The cosmic movement and planetary impacts are relatively quiet as the Moon passes through Pisces forming only a lovely sextile aspect to Venus in the early morning hours. This is not a day to seek a great deal of activity or accomplishment.

Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, and highly sensitive energies. This is a great time for meditation, spending time on the water, allowing yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watching movies, or making music. Enjoy any rest and sweetness you can find.

This can be a challenging time if you have things of a serious nature that must be accomplished. Do the best you can even as you find time to dream, meditate, or space out. If you are a poet, a musician, or an artist you will enjoy the fluid sense of the day.

In all your interactions with others, be aware they would also rather be resting in inspiration and dreams. Offer sweetness and sensitivity to all.

RELEASE WITH EASE
Thursday, February 7, 2019:
 
With the Moon still in Pisces, you will feel softer, more adaptable, sensitive, and vulnerable than usual. Remember this as you interact with others. They may put on a brave face but underneath they are deeply aware of their human sufferings and susceptibilities.
However, this is a day to release several things that you have been holding onto. First, as the Sun sextile Jupiter notice that a belief that you held strong even as recently as a year ago has shifted significantly. Perhaps you were unaware of the process as it occurred and now realize how easy it is to let go of that belief. It has lost its hold on you. That is worthy of celebration.
With Mercury in objective Aquarius sextile Mars in Aries, there is another thing you are able and ready to release at this time. Consider some area of your life that you have carried a great deal of anger or frustration around. Let it go. To look with true objectivity, you no longer need to hold onto that anger. Another worthy celebration.
With the Moon in Pisces, your celebration may be to write a poem, watch a movie, or drink just one extra glass of champagne. Don’t overdo it.

DIRECT ACTION

Friday, February 8, 2019:

You will feel a powerful shift from the sleepy dreaminess of the Pisces Moon to the need to take direct action when the Moon enters Aries at 9:35 AM EST.

Over the next few days, you may feel a strong need to start something new and to do so quickly. Whatever you want you want NOW. We all tend to take action more quickly when the Moon is in Aries. Watch that tendency and pay attention because fast action can easily lead to mistakes and accidents.

Your leadership, warrior, and pioneering impulses will be strong and your staying power lacking. You are likely to exhibit more courage than usual and also more arrogance and hot-headedness. Use this energy on your own in a physical manner. Go running, biking, skiing, or swimming. Whatever you do with this excess energy is best done on your own as it won’t come naturally to cooperate with others.

With the Moon in Aries, go ahead and take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself. This is not a time for empathy or romance, better to go for a direct passionate exchange. Whatever requires direct action can be accomplished now, little will hold you back if you set Aries energy against it.

OPEN TO UNUSUAL INSIGHTS

Saturday, February 9, 2019:

The Moon continues through hotheaded courageous Aries leaving you feeling a bit worked up. Patience won’t come easily but new ideas and excitement will. At 5:53 PM EST Mercury forms a delightful sextile aspect to Uranus. This is a powerful stimulus to your thinking and will add a great deal of excitement to your conversations and interactions with others. This is a great time for new ideas, unusual communications, and creative mental activities that require innovative and original thinking. Your mind is open to unexpected flashes of insight and epiphanies. You will be more able than usual to understand complex scientific concepts including astrological theories. Your mind is curious and a bit wild. Pay attention to the most unique ideas that occur to you. Keep a pen and paper at hand to jot down your unanticipated thoughts.

 

 

 

LISTEN TO THE STILL SMALL VOICE WITHIN

Sunday, February 10, 2019:

You may notice your mind feeling a bit foggy and unclear as you start the day. Mercury the planet of thinking and communication entered elusive spacey Pisces at 5:50 AM EST. Mercury generally spends only about 3 weeks in each sign but due to a Mercury retrograde that begins on March 5th, it will remain in this fanciful surreal sign until she enters Aries in mid-April. Mercury in Pisces may not support analytical thinking but is great for free flights of intellectual fancy, writing music, poetry, or any creative activities that require imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity. This is a great time to allow yourself to listen to the still small voice within. Intuition is highly supported.

TILL THE SOIL OF YOUR HEART
Monday, January 28, 2019:
 
The Moon in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio brings focused concentration, deep emotional depth, and connection. Embrace the potential of powerful intensity. Resist the pull toward obsessive brooding or vindictiveness. Pay attention to your instinctive motivations and make sure you are approaching others without a hidden agenda.
 
While the Moon moves through Scorpio you are more consciously aware of what you keep hidden even from yourself. Open your eyes and look into any dark corners, examine your deep mysteries and secrets. Bring light and breath into those parts of yourself that you or the culture have deemed unacceptable. Offer love and healing to what is unexamined.
 
Remember that the very best soil for your garden is that which has been composed of garbage & shit. The same goes for your deepest and most frightening depths. When you til the soil of your darkness, the best of who you are is free to grow and bring healing to yourself and others.

SPEAK THE TRUTH YOU SEE 

Tuesday, January 29, 2019:

At 9:33 AM EST the Moon enters the Mutable Fire sign of Sagittarius where she will remain until Thursday evening. As the Moon leaves Scorpio and entering Sagittarius you can expect your emotions to engage on a more positive enthusiastic note. While in Sagittarius we seek experiences that expand our understanding of the world. Release the intensity of the past few days and kick up your heels. Avoid the tendency to impulsiveness and don’t be condescending to others. Everyone has their view, make sure to keep your eyes/ ears open and allow understanding. Stepping into the shoes of another and seeing their world view will make you a better person and greatly expand your understanding.

At 9:51 PM EST the Sun and Mercury meet at 9 degrees Aquarius. This is the midpoint of the current Mercury cycle, the superior conjunction. You can think of this similarly to how you would think of a Full Moon, it is the culmination of the cycle between the Sun and Mercury that began on November 27th, 2018 at the inferior conjunction. Think about what you may have begun at that time that is now illuminated. Speak the truth as you see it.

EXPAND YOUR VIEW

Wednesday, January 30, 2019:

The Moon continues through Sagittarius encouraging ongoing exploration and understanding. You may have a clear sense of your own wisdom, but remember that not everyone sees the world through your filter. Don’t push your beliefs on others unless it is clear that your ideas are welcome and doing the work of expanding consciousness. If there is resistance, listen carefully to what the other person has to say. They have a perspective that is valid as well. You may learn something new and unexpected.

At 2:07 PM EST with Neptune square the Moon, take a nap, let your imagination run wild, listen to music, or dream. At 7:04 PM EST with the Moon joining Jupiter plan a trip, play with friends, go to a show! Invite a friend to join you, someone outside your normal circle of friends. Expand your view. This is a lovely evening for connection.

 

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!

 

 

STABILIZE YOUR VISION

Thursday, January 31, 2019:

Saturn sextile Neptune is one of 2019s most important aspects. Due to the retrograde cycles, we encounter it once here at the end of January, a second time in mid-June, and finally, in early November, it is active (peaking and ebbing) throughout this period. To me, this speaks of practical energy coming to the service of expanding spirituality, imagination, and vision. It also suggests a time when releasing an addiction of any sort will be supported.

A door of awareness opens allowing suffering to be tackled in a new way. With Saturn’s involvement integrity, facing reality, and responsibilities offer opportunities to release suffering and develop human compassion. We do not own our suffering. We all partake in human suffering. Suffering teaches us compassion as we understand that we each suffer as we all suffer. 

At 7:48 PM EST the Moon enters Capricorn ushering in more serious emotional states for the next few days. Plan plenty of alone time over the next few days to work with steadfast focus. These days are for deepening your inner adult and developing mastery of your life.

DETERMINED ACTION
Friday, February 1, 2019:
 
Mars square Pluto (exact at 10:19 PM EST) is a major statement suggesting issues of power, determination, and possibly destruction. Where in your life do you need to develop a more powerful position or accomplish something that takes great determination? If you can identify something that began at in late April 2018 it may help you understand what action you need to take now. Some action is required now, however, do not run roughshod over others, avoid underhanded tactics, and ruthlessness. Can you allow others to stand by your side and benefit from what you create?
 
The Capricorn Moon asks that you develop deep personal integrity, life will give you an opportunity to work on that now. Over the next few days, spend time alone, contemplate the direction of your accomplishments. If life does not provide the luxury of time alone, be sure to offer kindness to those around you. That will help you to avoid pessimistic thinking.

 

 

Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.” ~ Og Mandino

 

 

GET OUT OF THAT RUT

Saturday, February 2, 2019:

The Capricorn Moon may feel heavy and uncomfortable as she joins with both serious restrictive Saturn and obsessive Pluto early in the day. It will be interesting to see how frustration may mix with the high stimulation of the trine aspect formed between Venus and Uranus at 6:41 PM EST. When Venus and Uranus speak to each other you can anticipate a desire for something new and innovative regarding love and partnership. If you and a partner have fallen into any kind of a rut, this is the time to break out of that rut. Make your Saturday night date something you have never done before, or scrap the date altogether and spend the evening on your own. There is no doubt that freedom calls to you. Your most unique unusual side wants room for full expression. Experiment with new ways of interacting with your loved ones. The same old, same old just will not satisfy.

Insisting that nothing change is likely to backfire, so allow change, even if it is unsettling, at least for the weekend. New relationships can start quickly at this time, although those started now will most likely not stand the test of time.

 

 

SPEAK UP – MAKE A CHOICE
Sunday, February 3, 2019:
 
With the Moon in Aquarius, your emotions are on a search for change and innovation. You are not satisfied with the status quo and with Mercury sextile Jupiter you have plenty to say about the direction you are moving. This is a great day to engage with interesting ideas and seek ways to communicate your most unique and unusual beliefs. Connecting, negotiating, and making plans for future adventures comes easily. It is also easy and advantageous to get excited about subjects you would like to study. Your level of curiosity is high, interest and conversation come without effort. Enjoy
 
At 5:20 PM EST Venus, the planet of love and beauty enters the serious sign of Capricorn where she will remain through this Valentine’s season, entering Aquarius on March 1st. Ultimately Venus is about what we most value in our lives. This includes not only your love relationships but also finances, resources, and all things of beauty. With Venus in Capricorn, you are able to recognize the seriousness of your choices in partnerships and in how you use your resources. You may find that you need to choose more wisely. You are willing to invest more effort into creating the partnerships that will truly support your life. It is time to consider what is required to build long-lasting love, take responsibility, and make the effort at long last.

LEO FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE

Monday, January 21, 2019:

While you were sleeping the second eclipse of the month, a lunar eclipse occurred. Lunar eclipses occur at a Full Moon. During this one, you are offered a unique opportunity to reset your emotions and clear away much discomfort from recent months. What can you see clearly that has seemed beyond view until now? Open your eyes, you may be surprised at what you have missed that is now so clearly obvious.

In the early part of the day, Mars forms a square aspect to Saturn insisting that you face obstacle(s) that are holding you back from something that you desire. There are times when we must face the reality of defeat. That is how we grow, mature, and learn humility. Remember that adage when one door closes another opens. Consider in your life how many times a refection or defeat opened up more advantageous paths to follow. Make it a practice to welcome all that comes to you, reject nothing.

With the Moon in Leo, you may face challenges with dramatic self-expression by putting your ‘inner-child’ on full display. With an awareness of this tendency determine if this full expression is in your best interest and adjust your behavior accordingly.

 

 

OPEN YOUR HEART WITHOUT RESERVATION

Tuesday, January 22, 2019:

Each year lovely Venus forms a conjunction with over-the-top optimistic Jupiter (at 16 degrees Sagittarius) bringing us one of the most positive and illuminating transits of each year. Venus and Jupiter are considered the most beneficial planets and when they meet we can expect a swelling of good feelings. Because these two planets are joining together in Sagittarius (the sign that Jupiter rules) their joint goodness is increased. Think of this as the start of a new cycle of pleasure unfolding or love being magnified. Determine to set aside the past and begin a new cycle of increase in Love and/or money. Look to the house in your chart that holds Sagittarius to understand one area where you can anticipate this increase.

The Leo Moon is delighted to support pleasure, playfulness, warmth, and generosity. Don’t be afraid to look foolish as you allow yourself and encourage your friends to play. Enjoy time with the children in your life. Play, have fun, open your heart without reserve.

The Moon enters Virgo just in time for bed. In anticipating an excellent night’s sleep, take a hot shower and put clean sheets on the bed before climing in.

WORDS RUN WILD

Wednesday, January 23, 2019:

The ups and downs of this week may have your head spinning and here at mid-week you can anticipate intense excitement or anxiety. Which will you choose? Your mind will be challenged to find a way or a place to ‘land’. Don’t expect plans to go as expected. Stick with the circumstances as they present themselves, not as you wish them to be. You can’t do everything at once so do your best to slow down and take one thing at a time. You and those you encounter may have a serious case of foot-in-mouth disease. Watch how folks respond to the unpredictable things that are being said. Are you trying to get a reaction; is this a case of willful rebellion on your part? If it is, own it. Don’t pretend that it is otherwise. This is a day to look beyond the constraints of your own mind. Stir things up to try on new ideas and patterns of thinking. Don’t let anything or anyone hold down the unusual turn of your thoughts.

With the Moon in Virgo, you will be able to deal best with the wild mental activity through a steadfast dedication to practical chores. Let your mind and your words run wild as you wash the dishes and tidy your junk drawer.

 

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.

TIME FOR INNOVATIVE STUDY 

Thursday, January 24, 2019:

For the next three weeks Mercury, the planet of ideas and thinking, will be in Aquarius. This is a great time for all innovating and objective intellectual activities. It is an ideal time to begin a serious study of astrology! Contact me. Your mind will be more open than usual to learning and absorbing complex information. You will be more willing than usual to buck the opinions of others. No matter how much you may have deferred to others in the past, no one will dictate the direction of your mind and study. What is the purpose of this new curiosity and interest? If your purpose is to be able to help others, you know you are on the right track.

What house, in your chart holds Aquarius? Your thoughts will turn to that area of your life until Mercury enters Pisces on February 10th.

Your expectations may be higher than usual during the Virgo Moon as you carefully observe yourself, your relationships, your projects, and the work that others are doing. Try to curb the tendency to be critical. Notice the edgy tone in your voice and seek to replace it with kindness and understanding.

ACTION IS REWARDED

Friday, January 25, 2019:

With the Moon in diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra make it a point to bring pleasure, social niceties, and beauty to those you encounter. Commit yourself to seek, express, and notice gratitude, balance, and fairness everywhere you see it. The downside to Libra is the tendency to struggle with decision making. It can be a powerful challenge to take a stand when you are so interested in pleasing others. When the Moon is in Libra you are able to see both sides of an issue making it difficult to make a clear decision regarding your personal stand on the issue. Finding ways to offer kindness and bring beauty into the world is an easier goal.

As assertive Mars forms a flowing trine to expansive Jupiter, each in the sign they love the most, watch how easily action gets its reward. Mars the planet of action, physical energy and strength is in Aries, the sign of dynamic impulsive energy. He can be courageous, determined, selfish, or combative in this sign. Jupiter, the planet of confidence, idealism, and excess is in Sagittarius, the sign of philosophical understanding and expansion. Jupiter can be enthusiastic, optimistic, impatient, or opinionated in this sign. Take action with enthusiasm now. Whatever you put your mind to will grow and expand. Please be sure that kindness is a major ingredient in all that you do or your actions could become an issue of self-serving aggression. The Libra Moon helps you to avoid that pitfall.

“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

 

 

GO DANCING, STAY OUT LATE

Saturday, January 26, 2019:

With the Moon in Libra, your weekend’s focus will be on creating a safe place of pleasure for all your significant partnerships. Of course, that includes your intimate partners but also good friends, clients, and other individuals that you may desire to please.

This weekend you will not be satisfied to spend time alone, working, or with your family. You want to engage with social situations where you can test your charm and be charmed by others.

As the Moon forms a difficult square to subversive Pluto at 11:30 AM EST you may want to wait until later in the day to seek out those pleasurable social connections. The powerplay or discomfort that the Moon engaging with Pluto brings will pass quickly if you don’t engage negatively with anyone. By the evening you are ready to get dressed up and go out. This is a good date-night but you can’t expect to get home early at the Moon moves to oppose Uranus shortly after midnight. Go dancing and stay out late.

 

OBJECTIVITY VS SUBJECTIVITY

Sunday, January 27, 2019:

Both objective and subjective realities and viewpoints have there place in our lives. The problem comes when they push and pull against each other. Objectivity is fact-based and without emotion. Subjectivity is emotionally based without inclusion of concrete facts.

Each year in February there comes a day when the Scorpio Moon squares the Aquarius Sun. On the one hand, you are aware of objective intellectual reality and yet there are powerful emotions that want to acknowledge a very different subjective reality. They are pushing strongly against each other at this 3rd Quarter Square Moon Phase. Where does objective reality face off against intense subjective feelings? Consider what has been building since the New Moon (Eclipse) on January 5th and is now ready to begin the process of breaking down. What is it that you are ready to discard but don’t want to face the difficulty or consequences of saying so?

You may find that you are suspicious of the motivations of others, you will do well to set that aside and explore something you would rather not look at about yourself. Under this Scorpio Moon, if you are willing to dig deeper you can transform an issue that you have struggled with for years. Personal vulnerability and facing profound and difficult truths has the power to transform what holds you from your truest self and your best life.
