LOVE AND COMPASSION

Monday, October 2, 2017:

Monday morning begins with the Moon in humanitarian, quirky Aquarius forming a lovely supportive trine aspect to expansive Jupiter. The week begins with encouragement and a positive sense of forward motion.

At 10:27 AM EDT, the Moon enters sensitive, mystical, and sometimes confusing, Pisces. With the Moon in idealistic Pisces, the boundaries you normally hold between yourself and others are less distinct and more porous. You may feel dreamy, romantic, and possibly, more vulnerable.

It may be difficult to hold your attention on the practical realities of your work.

You may feel drawn to bodies of water, music, poetry, and the bar on the corner. Things that normally do not affect you may bring tears to your eyes as your level of compassion is highly increased. This is a time you want to help others and you are able to express more understanding and compassion than usual.

Your imagination is heightened as well and yet your sense of reality is unclear. Watch for your tendency to give in escapism; it is probably better to head to the yoga studio or meditation center than the corner bar!

Pay attention to your intuition and allow yourself time to rest, dreams, meditate and simply be with self-love and compassion

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:13 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 10:27 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

LET IT FLOW

Tuesday, October 3, 2017:

The Moon remains in spiritually transcendent Pisces throughout Tuesday making contact with Neptune at 8:46 AM EDT. This could create difficulty getting out of bed and into the routines of your life. You may simply want to stay in bed, sleep, and daydream!

However, at 3:09 PM EDT, lovely Venus forms a supportive flowing trine aspect to powerful Pluto bringing a great deal of depth and intensity to whatever you are passionate about at this time. The cycle between Venus (at 16° Virgo) and Pluto (at 16° Capricorn) is a cycle of bringing love, beauty, and value to the deepest corners of your empowered soul. The cycle began in late November of 2016. Whatever began at that time is now flowing through you and into the world.

Are you creating a work of art, a great love affair, or something else that is connected to your most powerful values? Pay attention and you can feel the positive forward movement in your life. You are in the section of the river where the water flows quickly with no rapids, nothing standing in the way. The only word of caution: stay out of the way and let it flow!

 

 

STAND UP FOR YOURSELF

Wednesday, October 4, 2017:

Rouen, Rue de l’Épicerie by Camille Pissarro via Wiki Media

Wednesday begins with the Moon still in fanciful, elusive Pisces. At 9:25 AM EDT, she joins with Chiron at 25° Pisces, this suggests a time to work on a deep spiritual level with your deepest hidden wounds. Allow compassion for yourself and others to be fully exposed and available. Everyone you meet can use the kindness you are able to express.

By the time the Moon enters dynamic Aries at 4:40 PM EDT, you will probably be ready for this change in the emotional environment. Now, we leave behind the soft sensitivity of Pisces and are ready to stand up for yourselves in a direct and assertive manner. The next few days will offer you the opportunity to develop and show courage and internal strength.

Get out Wednesday evening for a run, a bike ride, or some other solitary endeavor that will utilize your physical strength and individuality. You very well may need time alone.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:18 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 4:40 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

ARIES FULL MOON – TAKE A STAND

Thursday, October 5, 2017:

By Thursday, the sensitivity of the early part of the week has certainly been left behind. With the Moon in fiercely determined Aries, you probably feel more daring and courageous than usual. You want to do new things, you may be hot-tempered, and even a bit selfish.

However, that potential selfishness is countered by lovely Venus joining with forceful Mars (at 19° Virgo) at 12:53 PM EDT. This is the beginning of a cycle of a cooperative relationship. If you have challenges in your relationship, this is the time to plant a seed of understanding through thoughtful analysis.

When Mars and Venus come together, Venus calms the angry, assertive nature of Mars, even as Mars gives energy and strength to the civility and good manners of Venus. This is an aspect of passion and romance.

You will do well to be direct, open, and honest in your connections with others, particularly romantic partners. This aspect along with the Aries Moon supports your taking a clear stand for what you truly want.

 

 

SENSUALITY AND PATIENCE

Friday, October 6, 2017:

With the Moon in Aries forming a supportive trine aspect to Saturn at 7:27 AM EDT, you are ready to move with steadfast courage and assertiveness into the work day. You will do your best work if you are able to work on a personal project. You may be impatient with others, it is best if you can work on your own.

At 2:59 PM EDT, the Moon makes contact with eccentric Uranus. You may surprise others with some unexpected action or you may be surprised by someone or your own inner original thoughts. Be open to unanticipated epiphanies.

Once the Moon enters dependable, steadfast Taurus at 7:56 PM EDT, you can expect to settle, slow down and connect with others on an earthy, patient level. This will be a great evening to cook together with a partner, engage in sensual touch, massage, and deep kissing. 😉

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:39 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 7:56 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

FOCUS ON SENSUAL DELIGHTS

Saturday, October 7, 2017:

Astrologically, Saturday is a very quiet day. The Moon continues through consistent, earthy Taurus, enabling you to experience life through your senses. Nothing needs to move quickly, you can take your time, you do not need to start anything new or get excited about anything. Your attention is likely to be on practical issues, you feel patient, steadfast, and dependable.

Your focus on Saturday is likely to be on indulging yourself. This is the day to plan for great food, listen to beautiful music, and find ways to awaken your senses. Get a massage, go dancing, and put beautiful flowers on the dining room table. Get outdoors in nature, go for a walk, or prepare the garden for next Spring’s planting.

Take self-care to new heights as you engage with all your senses – sight, sound, taste, touch, and scent. Bring sensuality to others through food and touch. Enjoy the sweetness and reverence available.

 

 

SELF CARE AND CLARITY

Sunday, October 8, 2017:

Sunday brings with it complications that Saturday didn’t have. Beautiful, lovely Venus forms a challenging square aspect to restrictive Saturn at 8:53 AM EDT. This is apt to be an uncomfortable aspect and you may notice yourself feeling melancholy and low.

Perhaps, you feel that you cannot get what you really desire or that you just aren’t good enough, pretty enough, clever enough… you know those messages, you have heard them before. Haven’t we all?!

The important thing is to pay attention to what your responsibilities really are and look at the reality of your situation. It may not feel great, but if you gain clarity on what is real and what is just negative messages, you will find that you have the inner resolve to do what needs to be done to stabilize these issues in your life. You really do know that you are smart enough, kind enough, clever enough… You just need to get on board and do the work that is required to put your best foot forward.

At 9:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters impatient Gemini. It may be difficult get to sleep as your mind could begin to race. Spend some quiet time with a hot cup of tea, rest and remember the importance of self-care.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:45 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 9:45 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

* 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.

CONTEMPLATE THE SEEDS OF A NEW STUDY

Monday, September 25, 2017:

The week begins with seriously mixed signals. The Moon in Sagittarius provides an optimistic atmosphere, an idealistic view, and an expansive vision of the future.

However, it will be largely overshadowed when, at 10:35AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of thought and communication forms a challenging square aspect to realistic, hardworking Saturn. Saturn provides limitations and restrictions in order for us to face the reality of our responsibilities. This is not an easy or a fun transit but it will push you to do what needs to be done in order to develop mature clarity in your thoughts and plans. The cycle between Mercury and Saturn is an annual cycle as Mercury takes approximate a year to move fully around the ecliptic.

Think back to what you were thinking, planning, or studying in November of 2016. As this is the Third Quarter Square of this cycle, it is time to begin wrapping up and finalizing that project, study, or thought process.

Now is the time to consider what serious new project, study, or contemplation you want to begin when the new cycle begins in approximately 2 months. As you consider releasing the past, begin contemplating the seeds of the future. Difficult challenges that come your way on Wednesday will point you in the direction of what part of your life is winding down or preparing to be moved in a new direction.

 

A MATTER OF BALANCE

Tuesday, September 26, 2017:

With Monday’s intellectual challenge (Mercury square Saturn), winding down you will be more attuned to the easy going Sagittarius Moon on Tuesday. With the Moon in Sagittarius, you tend to feel positive about the direction of your life. Your thoughts turn in the direction of expanding your philosophical perceptions, a desire to gain greater understanding of your place in the world and culture, and to view how others fit into this larger view as well. You want to see through the eyes of others to gain clarity and understanding; you also seek adventure with a strong desire for the freedom to travel and see the world.

The only glitch in the system is when the emotional Moon joins with restrictive Saturn at 8:16 PM EDT. As you wind down the day, you are reminded that you still have reality to consider. You may want to engage with travel and freedom, but there is still your job, responsibilities, and bills to pay.

It’s okay, it is a matter of balance. The joy of life and the challenges of hard work and responsibilities must exist in harmony, side by side, hand in hand.

 

CLEAR GOALS AND KINDNESS

Wednesday, September 27, 2017:

Wednesday begins with the independent Sagittarius Moon forming lovely aspects to both optimistic Jupiter and eccentric Uranus. This suggests a morning of unexpected pleasures and perhaps unusual surprises. Do keep in mind that the Moon will be VOC* (see below) between 7:09 AM EDT and 12:25 PM EDT. Keep a low profile and enjoy whatever the morning offers.

Autumn in America, Oneida County, New York by Albert Bierstadt via Wiki Media

At 12:25 PM EDT, the emotional environment will change considerably as the Moon leaves joyful Sagittarius behind to enter disciplined Capricorn. While the Moon is in Capricorn, your focus will move toward more serious, realistic issues. Your attention will turn toward the practical and necessary steps you need to take at this time of your life.

This is a great afternoon to work on developing clear goals and plans in significant areas of your life. Given the option you will likely choose work and duty over fun or emotional connections. Please be cognizant of how you treat others. Sometimes when the Moon is in Capricorn, we can be so responsible, serious, and practical that we forget to be kind.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:09 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 12:25 PM EDT.

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

 

STANDING IN YOUR POWER

Thursday, September 28, 2017:

Very late Wednesday night, we reach the First Quarter Moon with the Moon still in serious Capricorn. This offers a simple reminder to look back at the New Moon on September 20th and consider the seed you planted at that time and take action to move your intention forward.

Also, while you slept very early Thursday night, expansive Jupiter (at 27° Libra) opposed unconventional Uranus (at 27° Aries). This suggests the possibility of a large, unexpected surprise that has its roots in something that began between mid-2010 and the beginning of 2011.*

When you think of the cycle between Jupiter and Uranus, understand that it is a cycle of expanding the unusual, enlarging the revolutionary mind. Whatever began in 2010 and 2011 shows its full results now? What personal internal revolution did you begin at that time? Where has it brought you?

Pluto turns direct at 3:36 PM EDT after having been retrograde since April. Some area of deep inner contemplation is complete; you are ready to stand more fully in the light of your own power. Wherever 16 degrees Capricorn falls in your chart, will help you understand the area of this personal empowerment.

*Googling political issues of that time (mid 2010 – early 2011) will surprise you… as will your own calendars and journals. You can’t make this stuff up.

 

MEDITATE, DREAM, CREATE

Friday, September 29, 2017:

The disciplined Capricorn Moon will be with us throughout Friday. Other than a bit of anxiety or excitement around 7:20 PM EDT, the daytime hours are stable, steady, and serious

At 8:11 PM EDT. Venus, the planet that represents our personal values of love, beauty, and resources forms an opposition aspect to Neptune, the planet of illusions and dreams. This can be a very romantic connection; do enjoy the romance but remember that Neptune will cloud your vision, you may have those rose tinted glasses firmly affixed and may wake up a few days later with a whole different understanding of the situation.

In exploring the entire cycle of Venus and Neptune, consider what romantic (or otherwise beautiful) vision around love or money began in January of 2017. What do you see your choices at that time have created over the past 9 months?

This is a great day for imagination, meditation, dreams, and visions. This is not a great day for clarity, precision, or accuracy. Dance, paint, meditate, dream.

At 8:42 PM EDT, Mercury enters Libra after being in Virgo for the past three weeks. Allow your thoughts to turn toward love and beauty. You and those around you will be more willing to compromise and able to see issues from other perspectives.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:14 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius shortly after midnight (12:41 AM EDT Saturday morning). Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

DIFFERENT DRUMMER

Saturday, September 30, 2017:

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

Following the last few serious days of mature stability, courtesy of the Capricorn Moon, on Saturday, you awake to a very different emotional environment. At 12:41 AM EDT, the Moon enters innovative, open-minded Aquarius putting issues of humanitarianism in the spotlight.

Saturday will be best utilized by seeking situations where you can engage with like-minded others for the purpose of improving the plight of all. Aquarius is an Air sign, engaging us in unusual intellectual pursuits that will forward the culture in revolution or innovation. You may feel inclined toward unexpected insights, rebellious ideas, and spontaneous actions.

The afternoon and evening bring lovely flowing aspects to both mental Mercury and the all-powerful Sun. Meet with community, allow ideas and plans to flow. Move your life forward in unusual. unpredictable ways. This is a day to go your own way, with others of like mind, not a day to follow the conventional crowd.

 

PUSH STEADY

Sunday, October 1, 2017:

Sunday has some similarities to Saturday as we continue working with others for the betterment of the whole human race.

However, there is a powerful drive now that will push you firmly forward. With directive Mars forming a beautiful trine aspect to highly influential Pluto at 7:36 PM EDT, you have the wherewithal to propel your agenda forward with power and assurance. You may notice a strong drive to excel or succeed in some situation that has the potential to bring very positive results.

Throw yourself wholeheartedly into whatever began around October of 2016. Think back to that time. What powerful intent were you focused on at that time?  Your determination is very strong. Push steady with concentration; the time is at hand.

ELATION AND BEAUTY

Monday, September 18, 2017:

How did you sleep last night? Shortly after midnight, Venus formed a lovely, flowing trine aspect to Uranus, the planet of unexpected change, excitement, and (sometimes) anxiety.

In early June, the cycle began between Venus and Uranus. When these two planets come together, it is a time to begin something new around love, deep personal values, beauty, money, or resources. Whatever you began in early June related to those qualities, probably brought a challenge in late August. What action did you take at that time to develop those values?

Now, the gifts of your choices are clear and are paying valuable dividends. Full illumination of this cycle comes in early November. This is a lovely aspect; enjoy the excitement and a view of beauty and loveliness to come.

Also, while you slept, the Moon entered Virgo, where she will remain until Wednesday morning. While the Moon is in Virgo, you will be able to do detailed work with competent efficiency.

On Monday afternoon, the Moon makes contact with both Mars and Mercury bringing you courage, strength, and purposeful direction. You can get important work accomplished at this time.

As the Moon opposes Neptune at 10:47 PM EDT, you are able to sleep with the awareness of your connection to the universe and enjoy the beautiful space of dreamland.

 

INWARD ATTENTION

Tuesday, September 19, 2017:

Keep in mind on Tuesday that we are in the dark phase of the Moon, this is a quiet time of inward attention. We will reach the Virgo New Moon at 1:30 AM EDT on Wednesday. Don’t rush your New Moon ritual, you will want to do that on Wednesday or even Thursday. I will post more details in the days ahead.

Tuesday, the Moon continues through productive, orderly Virgo keeping you focused on the details of the work you are engaged in.

Mid-afternoon, you may experience a slump as the Moon forms a challenging square aspect to restrictive Saturn at 3:11 PM EDT. It will soon pass.

At 9:15 PM EDT, Venus who has enjoyed her time in playful, expressive Leo since mid-June, now joins with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in modest, unassuming Virgo.

The Sun only has a few more days in Virgo, so take advantage of these few days to work out detailed plans and systems that will support your path forward. Carefully consider the seeds you want to plant at the upcoming Virgo New Moon.

 

SELF-CARE & KINDNESS

Girl in Red with Flowers by Jozsef Rippl-Ronai via Wiki Media

Wednesday, September 20, 2017:

The New Moon at 27 degrees Virgo occurred at 1:30 AM EDT, beginning a New Lunar Cycle, the first since the big Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

Be aware that the purpose of critical or compulsive thinking at this time reflects the need to release something you have recently become attached to.

This is the time to take a new step toward kindness and service. Yes, you may notice a desire to clear space in your closets and cupboards but remember that the space that truly needs to be cleared out is the space in your mind and heart that is too full or cluttered. When you have cleared that space, you can fill it with a new focus to support the growth of yourself and others in self-care. The world is glutted with much stress that is heavy for each of us to carry.

Plant a seed of commitment; commit to building a platform of kindness and support for others and self-care for yourself. Ask yourself: how can you help your neighbors and friends?

At 6:06 AM EDT, the Moon enters cooperative, diplomatic Libra. You find it easier to connect to others and truly see the unique contribution they have to offer the world.  Make it a point to build each other up on Wednesday.

The Virgo Moon was VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) while you slept. She enters Libra at 6:06 AM EDT.

 

MAKE THINGS NICE

Thursday, September 21, 2017:

Whatever sign the Moon is in on any given day sets the emotional tone for that day. With the Moon in diplomatic Libra on Thursday, we can anticipate a desire to ‘make things nice’ for all involved. However, the afternoon brings a difficult square aspect from the Moon to destructive Pluto (exact at 1:00 PM EDT).

Meditate, go for a long walk, and consider the options you have regarding any relationship issues you are working through.

Other than that brief glitch, this is a day where you will want to engage in social interactions. It is easier than usual to see the world from another’s perspective. Join with a trusted partner in environments that are aesthetically pleasing, bounce ideas off each other, enjoy art and cultural surroundings. Show kindness in everything you do and bring a smile and a good word to everyone you meet.

 

SUN ENTERS LIBRA – REFINEMENT AND BEAUTY

Friday, September 22, 2017:

Friday begins with the Moon still in graceful, charming Libra. At 9:05 AM EDT, she opposes Uranus, you can expect a surprise, excitement, or anxiety to shift the energy of the morning.

At 1:39 PM EDT, the Moon enters deeply passionate Scorpio, bringing intensity and deep introspection to the next few days.

At 2:01 PM EDT, mental Mercury forms a lovely, powerful trine aspect to Pluto. This allows your words to hit their mark. Go ahead and ask what needs to be asked and say what needs to be said. If you are a writer, allow compelling words to flow easily and weave their magic throughout this day.

At 4:01 PM EDT, the Sun shifts from Virgo into Libra, changing the focus of attention from service and perfection to social charm, harmony, and diplomatic endeavors. Over the coming month, you will want to deepen your romantic connections and create beauty and pleasure in your environment. On Friday evening, bring home flowers, arrange them beautifully and prepare to encourage the growth of all beauty in your life.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:05 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 1:39 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

DEEPLY INTENSE CONNECTIONS 

Saturday, September 23, 2017:

Saturday is about adjusting to the change in the Sun sign. With the Sun now in Libra, you may notice that it is more of a challenge than normal to take your own needs into consideration. The needs of others seems more important as you are able to see the world from the perspective of others. Libra connects us deeply; it is a good time to remember that your relationships provide you with a powerful mirror; your intimate partners and close friends are powerful teachers showing you where you need further personal work.

The focus now is on balance, on finding how to develop internal harmony through love or the creation of beauty and art. It may be more difficult to make clear choices during this time as you see both sides to every issue and situation. You are conscious of wanting to be loved and not wanting to rock the boat. Use this month to develop something of beauty and to creating balance in all your partnerships.

With the Moon in Scorpio throughout the weekend, there’s a depth of intensity in all your connections. You will want to relate closely, even compulsively with others. Making love this weekend will touch you on a powerful soul level. Connect with depth and intensity; open your heart.

 

REST, CONTEMPLATE, MEDITATE

Sunday, September 24, 2017:

It is important to know that the Moon is VOC* all day on Sunday. VOC* (Void of Course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect the Moon makes in one sign until it enters the next sign. This is a neutral time when whatever occurs will have little or no impact on the future of the issue involved. Therefore, this is a good time to rest, contemplate, and recuperate from your busy life. These are bad times to make purchases, you will not use the item as you may expect. These times can also be used to do things that you are hoping will have little impact. For instance, if you have a tough communication that you know you need to deliver but are hoping for minimal reaction… tell them today or at another VOC* Moon. Always file your taxes during VOC* in preparation to NOT be audited. 😉  Because the Moon changes sign every 2+ days, we have these periods very regularly, they can last anywhere from a few minutes to a full 24+ hours.

At 3:49 PM EDT, Mars forms a stressful opposition to Neptune, asking that you look clearly at your internal insecurities and worries. Be aware of your level of integrity and pay attention to any intuitive red flags that may arise regarding other people or situations that you encounter. Meditation is called for… and of course… kindness.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:33 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius just after midnight. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

ACTIVITY AMPS UP

Monday, September 11, 2017:

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

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

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

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) on Monday until she enters Gemini at 3:29 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

STABLE LOVE & VALUES

Tuesday, September 12, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

STRUGGLE LEADS TO MATURE GROWTH

Wednesday, September 13, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:35 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 6:13 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

LOVE – THE MEANING OF FAMILY

Thursday, September 14, 2017:

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

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

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

 

EXPAND LOVE

Friday, September 15, 2017:

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

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

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

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

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:23 PM EDT until she enters Leo at 9:09 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

PUT YOUR CARDS ON THE TABLE

Saturday, September 16, 2017:

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

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

 

COLOR THE DAY WITH PLEASURE

Sunday, September 17, 2017:

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

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

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

“So it comes to pass that, when we pursue an inquiry beyond a certain depth, we step out of the field of psychological categories and enter this sphere of the ultimate mysteries of life. The floorboards of the soul, to which we try to penetrate, fan open and reveal the starry firmament.”

~ Bruno Schulz

“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…”

INNOVATION AND OPTIMISM

Monday, September 4, 2017:

Monday morning begins with a lovely sextile from the progressive Aquarius Moon to stable, hardworking Saturn. This sextile aspect offers the ability to weave together the innovation of the Aquarius Moon with ambitious, prudent Saturn. This is a lovely way to start the week! Keep your eyes open for opportunities that will allow your most unique and interesting ideas to be brought to reality.

The day continues with more positive energies as the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to optimistic Jupiter at 11:45 AM EDT. Your ideas are further expanded as you engage with like-minded folks throughout the afternoon.

At 9:56 PM EDT, the Moon forms another sextile, this time to unconventional Uranus. This aspect encourages your ideas to expand even further outside of what you may expect of yourself.

Monday brings with it great energy, expansion, innovation, and excitement. As the Aquarius Moon opposes Mercury at 10:33 PM EDT, allow anything within your mind that has stood in the way of your unique ideas to break down and dissipate. Tuesday will bring a very different picture with sensitivity, imagination, and dreaminess.

 

 

MERCURY GOES DIRECT – FINALLY!

Tuesday, September 5, 2017:

Several important shifts happen in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. First, at 1:27 AM EDT, the Virgo Sun opposes illusive Neptune and we may sleep well and have interesting dreams further supported by the Moon entering passive, dreamy Pisces at 1:29 AM EDT. Remember, that Neptune rules Pisces so the energy of Neptune and Pisces reflect and support each other. You will awake Tuesday morning with a mystical, soft edge still surrounding you. You may be highly impressionable, confused, or even a little bewildered.

It may be difficult on Tuesday to maintain boundaries between yourself and others that are generally necessary to manage your everyday life. Be aware of this and tighten them up where they are necessary and loosen them where they can help you connect to others with love.

At 5:34 AM EDT, assertive Mars leaves dramatic, playful Leo behind to enter productive Virgo where he will encourage meticulous, analytical efforts over the coming weeks. Mars will remain in Virgo until October 22nd.

Then… what we have been waiting for! At 7:29 AM EDT, Mercury turns direct at 28° Leo. This is the same point where the eclipse formed last week. It is a volatile point and we should watch the conversations and words that are being spoken by the leaders of our governments. Nevertheless, Mercury will begin moving forward steadily from here on out. You can prepare to start those projects that you have been sitting on!

Be sure to pay attention to any dreams you have on Tuesday night. By the time you wake up on Wednesday, the Full Pisces Moon will have occurred.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* for a brief 13 minutes between 1:16 AM EDT and 1:29 AM EDT (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) when she enters Pisces.

PISCES FULL MOON – ACCEPT THE VISION

Wednesday, September 6, 2017:

I hope you are able to wake up slowly, paying attention to your inner world as you begin Wednesday morning. We reached the Full Pisces Moon at 3:03 AM EDT, Neptune joined in the event as well.

Whatever began at the Full Solar Eclipse two weeks ago, now comes into view. However, given that this Full Moon occurs in mystical Pisces and is joined with dreamy Neptune, that view is not likely to have sharp, distinct edges of clarity. This Full Moon extends to us an opportunity to see above and beyond our smaller vision. We may not see terribly clearly but we see a broadly inspired vision, beyond the boundaries to where our hearts open in whimsy, sensitivity, and imagination. We see the dream.

With Mercury now direct, use this time to fully envision that which you planted the seed for at the Eclipse on August 21st.  Reach for the dream.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:29 PM EDT until she enters Aries at 8:02 AM EDT on Thursday morning.

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

 

 

SIMPLE ACTION

Thursday, September 7, 2017:

Thursday morning at 8:02 AM EDT, the Moon heats things up considerably as she enters assertive, action-oriented Aries. This is a day of high vitality as Aries begins the zodiac and pushes us to take action and begin a new project, a new activity, or a new adventure.

Over the past few days, while the Moon was moving through Pisces, you may have felt dreamy, passive, and even a bit confused. Now, with the Moon’s entrance into Aries, you are driven to act on your feelings. You may feel edgy, impatient, and even angry. If something touches you on an emotional level, you are apt to act quickly on instinct.

This is a day to keep things simple and to keep yourself physically active. Go for a hike, a bike ride, or take action on something you’ve never done before. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to try skydiving! Today’s the day. 😉

IMPASSIONED GLOW

Friday, September 8, 2017:

Friday brings another day of powerful, fiery energies. There is little concern that this could be a boring day. If you were hoping for a calm, quiet day, you will likely be disappointed.

At 12:31 PM EDT, a lovely trine aspect forms between the spirited Aries Moon and the grounding Virgo Sun. You may find yourself with a powerful and yet simple need to take action to improve or change the direction of your partnerships. During the early part of the day, love and desire are expressed with playful and generous intensity.

At 1:49 PM EDT, the courageous Aries Moon is ready to leave the simplicity behind and dive into the depths of power, passion, and commitment. Perhaps, it is time to face the reality of deep forces that bubble beneath lightness and play.

At 9:28 PM EDT, the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to determined, responsible Saturn. You have done your work for the day and you are gifted with stability, self-respect, and a deeper understanding and appreciation of the reality of your situation. Allow sleep to soothe you as we build to a powerful day on Saturday.

POWER OF FLOW

Saturday, September 9, 2017:

In positive psychology, “flow” is also known as “the zone”. Flow is the mental and emotional state during which you are fully immersed in focused, energized involvement in whatever activity you are doing. Essentially, flow is characterized by the complete absorption to the point where you lose your sense of time and space.

Saturday is a day where flow should be easily accessible. At 6:45 AM EDT, the meticulous Virgo Sun forms a smooth, supportive aspect to Pluto, the planet of empowerment and transformation. This is the easy movement of Earth energy, and feels grounded, stable, and focused on reality. Think of this as a cycle of recognizing your abilities and acknowledging your power in the world.

This is an annual cycle which began in January of 2017. Whatever seed you planted in your life at that time is now in a state of easy progression. Whatever steps have been taken since January have brought you to a point where you were you have learned enough to pass your wisdom to others. You will begin another cycle (really a spiral, as each progressive cycle raises us to a higher level of understanding) in January of 2018.

In the morning hours, find a way to shift anxiety to excitement as you look for the place of flow which will be much easier once the Moon enters patient, reliable Taurus at 12:23 PM EDT.

Allow yourself to rest, work in the garden, bake bread, or spend time in quiet contemplation. Before you head to bed on Saturday night, Mercury will enter analytical Virgo bringing your mind to rest in orderly precision.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for about 30 minutes from 11:53 AM EDT until she enters Taurus at 12:23 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

PLEASURE AND ENJOYMENT

Sunday, September 10, 2017:

Sunday offers stability and calm. The tender Taurus Moon begins the day with poetic gentleness thanks to a sextile aspect to Neptune at 10:08 AM EDT. This ease and sweetness remains throughout the day.

In the evening hours, a Grand Trine is formed between the Taurus Moon, the Virgo Sun, and Pluto, currently in Capricorn. This is an Earth based Grand Trine suggesting comfort, reverence, and pragmatism. Regardless of the challenges and the difficulties of your individual life, this presents a time of rest, recuperation, and a positive realistic view of your life.

You are able to see that things are more manageable than you may have previously understood them to be. This is a day to create beauty creatively within all areas of your practical life. Please enjoy.
