SPRING EQUINOX – SUN ENTERS ARIES

Monday, March 20, 2017:

The week begins with the Sun entering Aries at 6:28 AM EDT. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox! It is bringing with it longer days, a vision for the future, new ideas, and new plans.

The Spring Equinox alerts us to a time of new beginning with plenty of reason to celebrate! This is a moment of balance and equanimity as the earth’s axis is pointing neither away from nor toward the Sun.

The shift may not initially feel as energizing as you may expect. With the expansive Sagittarius Moon joining with overly serious Saturn at 6:38 AM EDT, followed by her movement into Capricorn at 11:31 AM EDT, there is seriousness and a conservative edge to the day.

At 11:59 AM EDT, the Capricorn Moon forms a challenging aspect to the Sun, newly in Aries. Consider that Capricorn is the sign of maturity, authority, and caution while Aries is the sign of youthfulness, impatience, and excitability. When these two signs challenge each other, something has to give.

This is the Third Quarter Square phase of the Moon; it is a time of release. What has been building since the New Moon on March 27? Take it easy today. Let go and prepare for warmer days. Spring will soon begin in earnest.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:38 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 11:31 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 significant future impact.

 

 

INSPIRATION SERVES PRACTICALITY

Tuesday, March 21, 2017:

Tuesday, as the emotional Moon continues through responsible Capricorn, you are reminded that even with Spring in the air you have plenty of work to do.

At 12:17 PM EDT, even your serious nature welcomes your imagination and ability to dream. With a positive sextile aspect between the Moon and Neptune, your dreams can produce real world and practical results.

At 6:20 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a challenging square to Mercury. You are serious about the ideas that have grasped your attention.

All in all, this is a simple day of hard work with a lovely bit of inspiration. Utilize that inspiration; it will serve practical reality.

PRACTICE FLEXIBILITY

Wednesday, March 22, 2017:

Wednesday may start out a bit messy. The Aries Sun is ready to shine a little brighter without the restrictions of the Capricorn Moon. However, as the day begins, the serious Capricorn Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unsettling Uranus.

The Capricorn Moon seeks structure and demands responsibility, and yet, Uranus throws a monkey wrench into that idea as he seeks innovation and even revolution. This combination can create aggravation and upheaval throughout the morning. Work on your ability to be flexible; it may not come easily but will be well worth the effort.

The rest of the day with the Moon VOC* may just feel a little off kilter. Don’t attach yourself too much to accomplishments or forced engagements. At 10:29 PM EDT, the Moon will enter progressive Aquarius bringing a much greater sense of freedom and lightness to Thursday morning.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:20 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 10:29 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 significant future impact.

 

 

DEEPEN YOUR THINKING

Thursday, March 23, 2017:

Thursday begins with a lovely sextile between the quirky Aquarius Moon and beautiful Venus. Enjoy the morning.

Some agitation may occur when the Moon squares aggressive Mars at 5:20 PM EDT. Use your body to release this tension, go for a walk, chop some wood, or engage your body with physical effort.

As the evening approaches, you will feel expressive Mercury beginning to form a challenging square aspect to powerful Pluto, which will be exact at 8:44 PM EDT. Be aware of verbal power dynamics. Continue to make a concerted effort toward internal and external flexibility. Watch your responses to communications that come your way. Take three slow breaths before responding.

Don’t take what is said personally and watch the words that come out of your mouth as well. It is easy to say things that will be taken in a way that you many not intend. Be aware of your words, emails, and all communications.

This would be an excellent evening for deep study or to work on a powerful speech or other significant writing project.

 

 

WHAT WILL BE REVEALED?

Friday, March 24, 2017:

If you were engaged in a significant conversation, an important study, or a writing project on Thursday, Friday will be the day to expand upon and illuminate those conversations and ideas. At 8:45AM EDT, Mercury opposes Jupiter expanding your creative intelligence, your faith and belief in your ideas.

With the Moon in objective, progressive Aquarius forming delightful aspects to expansive Jupiter, thoughtful Mercury, and quirky Uranus, you can expect this to be a highly innovative day for humanitarian efforts, expansive ideas, and bringing your voice to a public arena. This is the full illumination of a cycle that began on October 11, 2016! Watch what is happening in the current political administration.

Pay attention for big revelations in your own life and on the world and national stage.

ARTISTS AND LOVERS

Saturday March 25, 2017:

Saturday offers a day to engage in actively seeking love and passively accepting love. Both sides are offered. At 6:07 AM EDT, the Moon enters compassionate, dreamy Pisces enabling us to swim within deeply emotional waters. At 6:17 AM EDT, the Sun and Venus come together in the highly assertive and active sign of Aries. Emotionally, you may get lost in sensitivity and imagination while simultaneously you know you must take action to directly go after what you truly desire. Make direct contact with love or expressions of beauty.

Once you have made direct contact with the object of your desire, allow yourself to passively engage in deep compassion or dreamy mystical states.

Bring your attention to love and beauty. This is a day made for artists and lovers.

 

 

EXCITEMENT 

Sunday, March 26, 2017:

Sunday continues with some of the dreamy sensitivity from Saturday courtesy of the surreal Pisces Moon.

But, you probably won’t be thinking too much about all of that as there is intense excitement in the air that will require all of your attention! At 11:05 AM EDT, Mercury conjoins with Uranus beginning a one year cycle of mental stimulation. Pay attention to unusual, new, or exciting ideas that come to mind. Perhaps you will hear or read something that surprises, excites, or even shocks you. Unexpected information may be revealed that will begin a new process in your life.

If you experience any sort of sluggishness or depression on Sunday, stop and consider what is it that needs to be said that you are avoiding. Something wants to be revealed. Go ahead, say it! Yes, it may very well set you on a new path, but it is a path that must be taken.

IMPULSIVE, DYNAMIC THINKING AHEAD

Monday, March 13, 2017:

Monday morning begins with a lovely Libra Moon ushering us into our day. Focus your attention on creating harmony and diplomatic social relationships. Make nice with everyone. This should be relatively easy, even with Venus retrograde.

At 5:07 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our thoughts, communications, and general perceptions, moves quickly into dynamic, impulsive Aries. Mercury only remains in Aries until March 31st, when it will move into stable Taurus.

While Mercury is in Aries, your thinking moves quickly and you may have very little patience. You could easily get yourself into trouble by saying exactly what comes to mind without thinking through the consequences. Your thoughts can bring powerful inspiration and you may feel as though your mind has caught fire!

Enjoy the experience but do remember to slow down and be kind with your words.

 

 

A POWERFUL DAY LEADS TO HEALING

Tuesday, March 14, 2017:

Diplomacy and peacemaking was easier on Monday then it will be on Tuesday. Yes, the Moon continues through harmonious Libra but forms harsh aspects to the T-square between powerful Pluto, enlarged Jupiter, and defiant Uranus, which is the planetary combination that has us all in turmoil!

During the T-square, first, the Libra Moon squares Pluto, followed by a conjunction to Jupiter, and then opposes Uranus, all within the course of the day. This activity highlights the intense level of agitation, over-extension, and power grabbing activity we see in the highest level of government. You will feel these energies in your own life and watch them in the lives of your friends as well.

At 10:41 PM EDT, when the Sun conjoins Chiron, the Wounded Healer, at 24° Pisces, you may find the ability to release an old wound and reach for healing that is offered.

As you offer healing compassion to others, your own pain can be released. Pay attention to your dreams, release the tight knots of your heart, and rest in open inspiration. Meditation and dreams will support this powerful process.

RELEASE – BREATHE – REPEAT

Wednesday, March 15, 2017:

Wednesday begins at 6:06 AM EDT with a harmonious sextile between the charming Libra Moon and stabilizing Saturn. Allow the day to begin with ease and simplicity.

At 11:11 AM EDT, the Moon leaves diplomacy aside to enter mysterious Scorpio. This brings passionate, introspective depth to the rest of the day. Perhaps, on Tuesday, you wanted to please others but on Wednesday you’re more cautious and it’s possible that your suspicious nature will take over.

At 7:38 PM EDT, when the compulsive Scorpio Moon opposes aggressive Mars, you or those around you, may be spoiling for a fight. Don’t let that fight engage you. It is only a Moon transit and will subside if you give it a bit of time. Do not respond, take deep breaths, and simply let it go. If you engage with that battle, it may grow all out of proportion.

Release – Breathe – Repeat.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:06 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 11:11 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 significant future impact.

 

 

EMBRACE INSPIRATION

Thursday, March 16, 2017:

Thursday should be a calm and simple day. The powerful Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine to mystical Neptune at 11:25 AM EDT.

This holds your emotions in a powerful state of dreamy inspiration. If you are a poet, musician, artist, or mystic, this is a lovely day to follow your inspiration. For the rest of you, it is a day to take notice of your connection to spirituality, music, compassion, and the creation of inspiration in all areas of your life.

 

 

RESPONSIBILITY AND SELF-RESPECT

Friday, March 17, 2017:

On Friday, as the Sun squares serious Saturn at 5:47 PM EDT, you will likely have the sense of being held back somehow. You may feel that some higher authority is preventing you from moving forward in some way. Step back from the temptation to look for blame or to express your frustration with anger.

This is a day when it is important to look clearly into the face of reality. A great difficulty will occur if you attempt to avoid whatever reality needs to be faced. What responsibilities do you wish were not on your plate? How much easier will your life be if you simply face the issue and embrace your limitations with self-respect? This is the final square of the cycle of maturity that began on December 10, 2016.

Something that began in December is now beginning a process of release. Face the issue and work with it rather than trying to hold to something that wants to change. It does not necessarily need to end but must begin to change form.

P.S. You can look forward to a lovely weekend ahead.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:57 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 11:00 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 significant future impact.

WORDS OF LOVE

Saturday, March 18, 2017:

Saturday is a lovely day to speak the words of love and appreciation that are on your mind. If you have held back from declaring your heartfelt feeling, today is the day to directly speak from your heart.

At 8:26 AM EDT, expressive Mercury conjoins with lovely Venus, both at 9° Aries. This colors the entire day with a desire to be assertive and direct with pleasurable, beautiful communications.

Later in the day, as the impulsive, optimistic Sagittarius Moon forming a flowing trine aspect to this pair, it simply accentuates the expansion and words of love. If you have anything good to say, this is the day to say it. If words are a part of your creativity as a writer or speaker, enjoy a great boost to the positive words and expressions of beauty you are able to bring forth.

 

 

SEEK A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Sunday, March 19, 2017:

What can you get excited about on Sunday? The Moon remains in delightful, philosophical, freedom-loving Sagittarius throughout the day. There is nothing to get in the way of Sagittarius’ jovial nature.

At 4:35 PM EDT, she forms a lovely sextile to expansive Jupiter, followed by a flowing trine to excitable Uranus at 9:30 EDT.

Find ways to expand your vision, your perspective, and your worldview. Engage in conversations with people who think very differently than you do, plan a trip that will bring you face-to-face with another perspective of the world, or watch a documentary that opens your mind to the way others think or live.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 6, 2017 through March 12, 2017

Take heart!! At 7:33 PM EST on Thursday, Mars, the planet of war and strife, leaves aggressive Aries behind to enter stabilizing Taurus. You can expect some release of the deep, intense anxiety we have been embroiled in for the past few months.

Vid Källaren by Carl Larsson via Wiki Commons

Vid Källaren by Carl Larsson via Wiki Commons

It is true that Mars would far rather remain in Aries; he does not look forward to his time in Taurus. However, Mars can bring aggression and warlike behavior when in Aries; when he moves into Taurus, he has no choice but to settle down and behave more calmly.

I give this one a thumbs-up.

 

 

HEART CENTERED COMMUNICATION

Monday, March 6, 2017:

Following the weekend’s focus on communications and thinking processes, Monday morning when the Moon enters domestic Cancer at 7:54 AM EST, your focus shifts dramatically. You can anticipate a desire for comfort, affection, and sentimentality to easily override your intellectual process. With the Moon in moody and sometimes defensive Cancer, pay attention to your own sensitivity and the possible oversensitivity of others.

At 7:28 PM EST, when the Sun conjoins with mental Mercury in compassionate Pisces, your sensitivity does not diminish in the least but you are able to communicate this deep sensitivity with a clear voice. Bring compassion and clarity to heart-to-heart conversations.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:22 AM EST until it enters Cancer at 7:54 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

PLEASANT MORNING – CRABBY AFTERNOON

Tuesday, March 7, 2017:

Tuesday begins easily enough. You may carry over a deep level of compassion and kindness from Monday as the protective Cancer Moon makes lovely aspects to empathetic Neptune, the all-powerful Sun, and perceptive Mercury.

Enjoy the morning; it is the best part of day. Whatever you need to accomplish, get it done early.

From the mid-afternoon through bedtime, the deeply sensitive Cancer Moon forms rough aspects to destructive Pluto, idealistic Jupiter, and defiant Uranus. Don’t be surprised at your own moodiness and the plain crabbiness of others!

Watch your defensiveness and your tendency to seek an escape at the slightest provocation.

Shortly after midnight, your mind will open to powerful opportunities. Expect to encounter these in your dreams. Keep your journal by your bedside to jot down any helpful notes when you wake up on Wednesday morning.

 

 

Children Running from a Thunderstorm by Konstantin Makovsky via Wiki CommonsEXPLORING POSSIBILITIES

Wednesday, March 8, 2017:

Wednesday brings a sense of potential with a lovely sextile aspect between mental Mercury (currently in imaginative Pisces) and powerful Pluto. This brings us to the first step in a cycle of empowerment that began on January 29, 2017. The empowerment being developed throughout this cycle is one of mental clarity or growth.  Over the course of this (approximately one year) cycle your thinking or ability to communicate is profoundly deepened. Now is the time to explore what direction this learning will take you.

For example, perhaps at the end of January you decided to embark on a writing project (or perhaps a learning or a communication project), now you begin to explore different approaches or methods that will bring that project forward. It is not yet time to take an active step forward, but a time to think about and explore those next steps.

The time for actual motion forward will come in about two weeks.

At 9:59 AM EST, with the inward Cancer Moon squaring determined Mars, you may feel aggravated and even a bit aggressive. This will pass quickly when the Moon enters vital Leo at 11:46 AM EST. With the sensitivity of Cancer left behind, you can move into a playful, self-expressive afternoon. Get together with friends or spend time with children. Allow your inner child to play and show her truly openhearted generosity.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:59 AM EST until she enters Leo at 11:46 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

A TIME OF PREPARATION & PATIENCE

Thursday, March 9, 2017:

Thursday is almost like a mirror to Wednesday. You are once again offered the opportunity to consider, without needing to move too quickly, what will most deeply empower your ability to make a difference in the world. What path will empower the development of your gifts to the world? You are asked now to explore what you need to do over the coming weeks that will enable you to make a difference to those around you.

Again, do not take any major steps forward. Explore possibilities and consider the actions you will take over the coming months. This is a time of preparation.

At 7:33 PM EST, Mars leaves his favorite sign of Aries behind and enters the calm, stable pastures of Taurus. Mars is not delighted with this move. He is happy in his home sign of aggressive, angry Aries. However, we need this stability now.

While Mars is in Taurus (until April 23rd), we will learn patience and begin the process of planning our garden. Spring is upon us. Mars in Taurus insists that we stabilize, develop patience and steadfast devotion to our Mother Earth

 

 

PLAYFULNESS TURNS TO PRACTICAL CONCERNS

Friday, March 10, 2017:

The playful Leo Moon is expansive, excited, and steady Friday morning as she engages in delightful conversations with Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn. The afternoon settles down into simplicity as we wait for the Moon’s entry into Virgo at 5:07 PM EST. This shift leads us into a weekend of productivity and efficiency.

It is unlikely to be a terribly exciting weekend but should be highly productive with plenty of opportunities to express kindness along with spring cleaning projects. When the efficient Virgo Moon trine determined Mars at 6:22 PM EDT, jump right on those practical projects. You have amazing energy into the evening to get things done.

At 8:34 PM EST, as Mercury conjoins with Chiron, your communications can bring deep healing to yourself or others. Maintain focus on practical matters, sensitivity, being of service to others, and simple kindness.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:05 PM EST until she enters Virgo at 5:07 EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

HELP OTHERS WITH PRACTICALITY AND SIMPLICITY

Saturday, March 11, 2017:

Any projects that you began on Friday evening will keep you occupied throughout Saturday. This is a weekend for kindness, helping others, and accomplishing organizational projects, not a weekend for excitement and dramatic activities. Detailed work is highlighted with this industrious Virgo Moon.

At 3:07 PM EST, when the Moon opposes elusive Neptune, you may feel a bit confused, dreamy, or inspired to take on a more imaginative or artistic project. If you feel tired, take a nap.

Saturday is simply not a high-energy day but a day of steady, meticulous movement forward. Virgo always seeks to be of service so helping others will come easily and feel satisfying on a deep level. However, be sure you are clear on the difference between being helpful and putting yourself in the position of being a martyr. Helping does not mean rescuing someone who holds a victim role.  Be clear of this distinction and enjoy this simple day of open awareness and generous kindness.

 

 

VIRGO FULL MOON – WORK EQUALS MASTERY

Sunday, March 12, 2017:

You may feel as if you were waking up on the wrong side of the bed on Sunday morning. At 8:10 AM EDT, (time changed while you slept!) Mercury forms a square aspect to serious, authoritative Saturn. With Mercury in dreamy Pisces, your mind longs to enter flights of fancy unrestrained by reality. However there is a strong need to step into a more serious thought process.

Did you begin a new study or a new way of thinking in late November 2016? Now, the Universe is pushing you to move forward in a mature responsible way. This is no time for mysticism or lack of clear thinking. Take action on something real, tangible, and solid.

At 10:54AM EDT, the Full Moon occurs at 22 degrees Virgo. Open yourself to a deep level of service. Where can you help others?

With the Full Moon forming challenging aspects to hard working Saturn and thoughtful Mercury (both in passive Pisces), you must understand how hard work and sustained effort is necessary to the development of mastery in your life.

This is a day to look clearly at the places you must put in long term and sustained effort. Remember, that this type of effort builds not only mastery but also self-respect and authority. Support others in building self-respect.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:37 PM EST until she enters Libra at 1:29 AM EDT on Monday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

__________________________________________________________
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by 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.

DETERMINATION MEETS CONFUSION

Monday, February 27, 2017:

Don’t expect to settle into calm terrain yet! When impulsive, possibly angry, Mars opposes expansive Jupiter at 9:24 AM EST, the challenges of last week are ratcheted up. There is an overabundance of heat and powerful determination.

With the Moon still in Pisces, you may feel unclear and even confused by the circumstances and shifting events of the past five days. Whatever wake-up call or shocking revelation you have had is going to take some time and inner work to process.

When the sensitive Pisces Moon conjunct Chiron at 1:09 PM EST, you will seek a silent place of healing. Take yourself and your process seriously; go inward even as you support those you love.

With the Moon square Saturn at 6:07 PM EST, you may feel the need for time alone. Respect that for yourself and others.

At 11:51 PM EST, the Moon releases her elusive sensitivity as she enters dynamic, independent Aries. You will be ready to face a new day on Tuesday.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:07 PM EST until she interested Aries at 11:51 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

 

BOLD COURAGEOUS LOVE

Tuesday, February 28, 2017:

Finally, we are offered a day of astrological calm on Tuesday. Perhaps, calm is a relative term when the emotional Moon, romantic Venus, defiant Uranus, and dynamic Mars are all in Aries, the sign of impulsive determination. Wow. That is a lot of assertiveness that is bubbling alongside the soft sensitivity of the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune all in Pisces. You cannot really believe all that you see (fake news indeed).

Even with all of this as we come off the past week’s intensity, we will take this moment to breath and relax. The only major aspect throughout the day is the Moon conjunct Venus at 9:54 PM EST.

Consider your most deeply held values; contemplate your own pursuit of love, money, and beauty. Go to bed early, make love with your partner or connect with your own self-love.

Understand that there is boldness and courage in your engagement in love at this time.

SIDESTEP HOTSPOTS

Wednesday, March 1, 2017:

Wednesday begins with the aggressive Aries Moon having difficult conversations with obsessive Pluto, anxiety producing Uranus, Jupiter (the planet that simply enlarges whatever picture we are looking at), and aggressive Mars. It is a good idea to carefully observe your own emotional triggers and sidestep other people’s hotspots. This is not a day to speak your mind or engage in difficult conversations. No one will win.

At 9:19 PM EST, the Aries Moon forms a stabilizing trine to steadfast Saturn calming us in time for sleep.

At 9:43 PM EST, you are certainly ready to drift into dreamland, spend time in meditation, or pour yourself an extra glass or two of wine. Your perspective of the circumstances you find yourself in may be highly distorted. Find a way to express your most creative imagination and get a good night’s sleep. Keep your notebook handy to write down your dreams when you wake up on Thursday morning.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:19 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 2:43 AM EST on Thursday morning.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

 

CONNECT WITH KINDNESS

Thursday, March 2, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in Taurus, which you would normally expect to bring solid relief to all the intensity we are living in.

However, with Jupiter now opposing Uranus, whatever you are expecting will be larger and more exciting (or disastrous) than you anticipate. You have the sense of desperately wanting to break free of limitations and restrictions and are highly aware of the most positive as well as the most negative expression of future possibilities.

I encourage you to watch the reflection and the rumbling changes of these energies in your personal life as well as within our culture, our government and the world.

Wherever you find yourself, be an example of calm, open-hearted love, kindness and acceptance. Don’t let yourself get caught up in your own situation so much that you miss the opportunity to make significant, deep connection with others. We are all in need of an extra dose of kindness. Be that example in the world, show the love in your heart.

 

 

 

SIMPLY REST

Friday, March 3, 2017:

Friday presents us with a quiet day of rest. Following a smooth, easy trine aspect to Pluto at 10:20 AM EST, the solid Taurus Moon is VOC until 5:06 AM EST Saturday morning. VOC stands for void of course, meaning that the Moon has made its final major aspect while in one sign until it enters the next sign.

In other words following her conversation with Pluto, she doesn’t speak to any of the other planets until she enters Gemini early Saturday. This slows down all activity and gives us time to rest.

The intense energies of these past weeks have us all on edge; and no, it is not over. For Friday, allow yourself to take a break. Go home after work, cook a nice meal and spend time doing something that simply makes you happy. Take a bath; give your lover massage. Rest.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:20 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 5:06 AM EST on Saturday morning.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

VENUS RETROGRADE – WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

Saturday March 4, 2017:

By the time you wake up Saturday morning, the Moon will be in Gemini encouraging conversation, friendliness, and curiosity.

The important thing this week occurs on Saturday as Venus turns retrograde at 4:09 AM EST. She will remain retrograde until April 15th. This is an important period of time. Pay careful attention. Venus goes retrograde approximately every 2 years. As with any retrograde, it is important to refrain from forward motion regarding the issues related to the planet involved.

Venus represents the things we value most dearly, our love relationships, money, art, romance, and beauty. Venus represents our deepest personal values. During this time, it is important to go inward and get crystal clear on the things that you value most highly in your life.

Don’t be surprised if past lovers show up on your doorstep or in your FB feed. What do you need to revisit from the past? What can you learn by looking at what you have valued in the past?

Consider carefully what is of the highest value in your life. Consider that what is in your life has higher value than you may know. Consider what it would take for you to be deeply satisfied. Could you be satisfied exactly where you find yourself?

This is a time of contemplation, not forward motion on these issues.  Do not, I repeat, DO NOT start a new romantic relationship or make new financial investments.

 

 

 

ACTION TO STABILIZE

Sunday, March 5, 2017:

Sunday brings a very active Gemini Moon offering you many opportunities for connections, conversations, and engagement with friends and family.

Early in the morning, before you head into all that activity, there may be some challenge as you are simply not sure which way to turn. Once you determine the direction and take action to move forward, the day will smooth out.

At 6:32 AM EST, the chatty Gemini Moon squares the passive Pisces Sun. You will want the action of the day to be something that moves forward the intension you set in motion, or the seed you planted at the New Moon last weekend.

At 3:45 PM EST, assertive Mars forms a pleasing trine aspect to steady Saturn. This will assist in accomplishments coming easily and hard work moving smoothly. As you push forward into the future, you feel deeply supported by structure and stabilization. This is a day when your communications can help to stabilize your actions.

Bring folks together to get a project done that involves both intellect and physical action. Enjoy time spent with friends accomplishing projects and taking action to move your life forward.

Have you or your children gone back to school? Has your life settled down as you stabilize yourself into more of a routine? Do you see yourself preparing for harvest and the cooler days ahead (in the Northern Hemisphere)? Is this a time of pleasure for you?

Here in Vermont, with our long cold winters, there is much preparation to do. If you want to come help cut, split, and stack wood up here in the north woods, let me know. There is much preparation to ensure my warmth in the coming months. 

Personally, as much as I love the heat of August, I am always ready for the calm that seems to come with the shorter, cooler days.

I like long evenings of slow movies, good friends, and warm soup.

Are you concerned or unclear about the path ahead? Do you know where the coming Spring will find you? Let Astrolore help you understand the upcoming adventure and the path you are on.

Make your appointment today! 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 simple conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

WHERE HAS THE DREAM BROUGHT YOU?

Monday, August 31, 2015:

The week begins with the Moon in Aries. On an emotional level, you may feel strong and able to take on the world. However, you may be a bit overwhelmed by far more ethereal energies. Consider your dreams – the sleeping kind and the wakeful kind.

On Monday, the Sun opposes Neptune. In considering this cycle, think about a seed that you planted in late February of this year. Perhaps, it had its roots within a dream of deep importance. Now, you can see if this was a realistic dream or if it pulled you down a path that has sapped your energies.

That dream has brought you to a sense of enlightenment or on a more negative side, a sense of suffering. The light of clarity shines on the result of the dream. If you find the dream has become a nightmare, it is now your responsibility to re-envision where you find yourself.

Even if it seems the results have all turned to suffering, seek value. You will find it hidden within the beauty that is growing alongside the suffering. Focus there.

“I’m stronger because of the hard times, wiser because of my mistakes, and happier because I have known sadness.” ~ Unknown

 

WHAT IS POSSIBLE?

Tuesday, September 1, 2015:

Tuesday is a day of powerful energies. Do not take this day lightly. Yes, the sense of suffering or confusion from Monday will ride alongside the powerful forces of the element of Fire. Fire brings enthusiasm and drive. Take action on what needs to be accomplished, stop putting it off! Just do it!

However, do allow a little space in your daily routines this morning. As much as possible, try to guard against situations that will increase your anxiety.

Following a square to Uranus at 11:38 AM EST, the Aries Moon will be VOC* until Wednesday morning when she will enter Taurus.

You can expect a highly active, somewhat quirky day. Do not expect interactions to be highly significant, but seek out light-hearted friends to spend time with in the evening. This is not the evening to stay home and watch a movie alone.

The energy of Tuesday evening asks you to get out and engage in potentially life changing activities with others. Open your heart and mind to what is possible.

“At any given moment, you have the power to say: This is not how the story is going to end.” ~ Christine Mason Miller

 

SEEK REVERENCE AND CALM

Wednesday, September 2, 2015:

After the anxiety of Tuesday, Wednesday should feel calm and stable. The Moon is in Taurus bringing stability and the reverence for beauty to the middle of the week. Throughout the day, the Taurus Moon makes lovely aspects to Jupiter, Neptune, and the Sun.

Anticipate being able to see more clearly and understand the confusion and suffering from the past few days. Clarity comes as you stabilize and expand into a deeply spiritual realm of understanding.

Reverence and calm is needed and delivered. Simply open your heart and accept this gift.

“The greatest step toward a life of simplicity is to learn to let go.” ~ Steve Maraboli

 

ENJOY THE SENSUALITY OF YOUR BODY

Thursday, September 3, 2015:

On Thursday, you will probably be motivated by a desire for comfort and stability. You do not want change or upheaval. Life feels a bit slowed down and you are inclined to resist anything that is unpredictable.

If you can find a steady groove for work, you can get a lot accomplished. Try to find that groove early in the day before you get pulled into a stuck place of laziness. 

The Taurus Moon offers you a great day for harvesting the garden, getting or giving a massage, or making art.

The Moon is exalted in Taurus (just a fancy word meaning she loves being here). This is a day to deeply experience your embodiment. Yes, here you are in a body! Some days it feels as though we are all in our heads… but on Thursday you are fully aware that you have this body to express yourself through.

Treat your body well on Thursday; sink into your body, feel the delights of your senses. Revel in your earthly life, enjoy the sensuality of your body.

“What makes you vulnerable makes you beautiful.” ~ Brene Brown

 

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT?

Friday, September 4, 2015:

Friday holds a very different energy from Thursday. By the time, we are up and moving on Friday morning, the Moon has entered Gemini (6:47AM EST), following a brief VOC* Moon.

There are no major aspects to concern us so we are free to enjoy the simplicity of the energy provided by the Gemini Moon.

Communication, variety, and curiosity are the basic themes of the day. Don’t seek out or expect depth or intensity in your communications, stick with the light, breezy, and friendly.

As the Gemini Moon trines Mercury, this evening you may notice how easy it is to say what you are thinking. If you have a writing project (are you writing a book or a blog?) this will be the perfect time to get a lot done quickly!

If you find yourself in the spotlight, you will know what to say.

“If you light a lamp for someone else, it will also brighten your path.” ~ Buddha

YOUR WORDS ARE A GIFT

Saturday, September 5, 2015:

Here, we are looking forward to yet another weekend. Make a plan; this weekend is a powerhouse (definition: a person or thing of great energy, strength, or power)!

What will you do to harness the power of this day?

Consider first that the Moon will be in Gemini so all that we talked about for Friday will hold true here as well. You will have the energy of curiosity and lightheartedness to share with others.

The energy of most significance is the trine made by the Sun to Pluto, the planet of empowerment and transformation. In looking at the full cycle, let us go back to the birth of the cycle on January 3, 2015.

What empowerment was born at that time? In early April, there was a push forward on that issue and in early July the full empowerment was expressed.

Now, the energy is flowing freely, whatever transformation and learning you encountered from the first stages of the cycle is now flowing outward. Offer your ability to bring empowerment to others through your teaching. Keep your eyes open and you will see the opportunity offered.

Remember; this is a day when your words are a gift; the awareness you are able to bring to others can open minds and change lives. As we learn, we teach. You will teach best that which you most need to learn.

“A diamond is just a piece of charcoal that handled stress exceptionally well.” ~ Unknown

 

VENUS TURNS DIRECT: MOVE FORWARD WITH LOVE & MONEY

Sunday, September 6, 2015:

Oh, Thank Goodness!

I am deeply grateful to see that Venus turns direct on Sunday! This is the day to sit and contemplate what you have learned over these past long weeks (since July 25th) of evaluating your deepest values of love and resources.

Has your relationship survived?

Has your bank account survived?

Have you come up with new ways to work with your own deepest values?

Have you learned what is truly important to you?

The next few weeks will be spent assimilating what you have learned, what you have seen that can’t be unseen, and what changes you now understand must be made.

The Moon enters Cancer at 12:40 PM EST bringing our emotions close to the surface. The restlessness of the Gemini Moon of the past few days has given way to the need for domestic security.

You long for the feeling of belonging and safety. You will want to stay close to home, connecting with your closest loved ones.

Show love freely.

“The greatest potential we have for opening our hearts lies in the opening of our minds.” ~ Vironika Tugaleva

This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Monday, August 31, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Pisces) following a trine to Saturn at 1:54 AM EST, until she enters Aries at 3:33 AM EST.

Tuesday, September 1, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Aries) following a conjunction to Uranus at 11:38 AM EST, until she enters Taurus at 4:01 AM EST on Wednesday September 2, 2015.

Friday, September 4, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Taurus) following an opposition to Saturn at 5:21 AM EST, until she enters Gemini at 6:47 AM EST.

Saturday, September 5, the Moon is VOC* (in Gemini) following a sextile to Uranus at 6:04 PM EST until she enters Cancer on Sunday September 6, 2015 at 12:40 PM EST.
