A recent note from a client:
Thank you, my consultation with you was just wonderful yesterday! I pondered it for the rest of the day. It helped me gain valuable insight into myself and gain a fresh perspective on my life and where it is headed. It felt like a powerful alternative therapy session. Alternative and mystical practices have been discouraged most of life. For a long time, I just accepted it. When I was 10 years old, my mother and I were in a bookstore and I asked her to buy me a book about my sun sign, Taurus. She said “yes” but followed it up with a very real talk about how “that stuff just isn’t real”. I was always curious but never brave enough to dive in until my life recently changed so dramatically. Thank you again! I can’t wait to talk with you about my son’s chart!  ~ K. from Texas

 

 

 

EXPAND YOUR CIRCLE OF FRIENDS

Monday, May 20, 2019:

If you love your job, you will be excited to start the week and get back to work.

If however, your job does not reflect your true values you may want to take the day off to explore new ideas, new places, and new experiences.

Today’s Sagittarius Moon joins with Jupiter at 1:05 PM EDT. Together they offer to expand something within your heart. What house does Sagittarius hold in your personal natal chart? Understanding this will give you a good idea of the area of your life that seeks expansion. All else being equal, this is a great evening to connect with future ideas and future friends. I was going to say strangers but let’s think of those strangers as your future comrades. Choose to spend time with people who will change and enlarge your understanding and world-view.

SPRING ENTERS HER FINAL STAGE – SUN ENTERS GEMINI

Tuesday, May 21, 2019:

When you awake this morning you will notice a significant shift has taken place. The Moon has entered serious authoritative Capricorn in the wee hours of the morning, but that is not the important piece! At 3:59 AM EDT the Sun leaves sensual Taurus behind to move into inquisitive, changeable Gemini. Mercury follows suit at 6:51 AM EDT. Now we are officially in Gemini Season. At this time the Season of Spring enters her final stage, ushering us toward the Summer Solstice (when the Sun enters Cancer on June 21) which is only a month away.

At 9:06 AM EDT Mercury joins with the Sun. This is the superior conjunction between Mercury and the Sun, being the midpoint of the full Sun & Mercury cycle which began on March 14th when the two joined together during Mercury’s retrograde. This is an important time to breath life into something that you began at that time. Mercury loves being in Gemini. Folks around you probably have much to say.

The Capricorn Moon will help keep our more immature impulses in check, which is likely a good idea.

During Gemini season we tend to be more social and curious. We are motivated by knowledge and intellectual understanding. You may notice life itself speeding up as your mind moves quicker than usual. Over the coming month, you may need to sharpen your skills of adaptation. Your mind is open to learning and you are very aware of details changing rapidly around you. If you find yourself feeling anxious, nervous, or simply scattered, consider beginning a meditation practice to help quiet that busy mind.

BRING INNOVATION TO AMBITION

Wednesday, May 22, 2019:

Pay attention to situations that come to your awareness today, certain things that occur may be more important than you may expect. At 10:46 AM EDT Mars the planet of action forms an aspect of opportunity to Uranus the planet of innovation and individuality. Keep a lookout for unexpected actions from others and the desire for defiant actions of your own. You are likely to notice a powerful urge for freedom and little patience for being held down by the expectations of others.

Spending time on your own is probably a good plan. With the Moon in Capricorn perhaps you can use your personal innovations and defiant ideas to support your business-related ambitions.

When the Moon is in Capricorn it is good to keep the focus on what supports those personal work aspirations and objectives.

GREAT CONVERSATIONS

Thursday, May 23, 2019:

The morning begins with the Moon still pushing you in the direction of serious lone accomplishment. Get those solo efforts done early in the day. At 1:50 PM EDT, as the Moon enters Aquarius it will be far more advantageous to work with a unique group of innovative folks whose vision aligns with your own.

At 6:49 PM EDT the Aquarius Moon forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to the Gemini Sun. This is a great evening for fun engaging conversations regarding topics that may at other time seem off limits. You are able to speak and listen with curiosity rather than judgment. Go ahead and bring up a topic that is dear to your heart that you have hesitated to bring with a partner or friend.

Show your curiosity toward others, ask questions that you have been hesitant to ask. This is a great evening to share thoughts and viewpoints.

If you are scheduled to perform that TedTalk this evening, your performance will be dynamite. If there are topics that have been challenging to bring up with your partner or friend, download some TedTalks about that topic and suggest watching them together. Great conversations will emerge. If your friend is not open to the conversation you will be quite objective about that as well. Engagement in intellect is key.

INNOVATION AND HUMANITARIAN FREEDOM

Friday, May 24, 2019:

The Moon is in innovative, unconventional Aquarius throughout the day. If you are involved in working with a team you will get far more accomplished than if you need to work alone. Seek out people who have an inclusive innovative style to the work that they do.

This is not a day for close emotional connections. You will be happiest spending time alone or with casual friends/ acquaintances. Give your partner space and freedom and let them know that you require that today as well.

Your humanitarian interests seem more relevant than your personal interests. It is all a matter of perspective.

Spend the day in social interactions, allow rebellious and spontaneous thoughts and conversations to emerge. Break out of any routines or ruts that hold you back. Bad habits can be broken most easily under the influence of the objective Aquarius Moon.

Work for the betterment of all humanity rather than for the self and intimate loved ones.

 

 

“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

 

 

REACH OUTSIDE YOUR MIND

Saturday, May 25, 2019:

Reach outside of your own thinking and look for what is unusual, interesting, and unique about those around you. Is there someone in your social group that you know little to nothing about? Invite that person out for coffee and find out what makes them tick. Go to a community talk about a social issue you know little about. Allow yourself to learn something that will spark concern and understanding. Share your own unique thoughts and beliefs with someone who shows an interest. This is not a day to hide or to be preoccupied with your own view.

You may feel a bit like an alien in your own social communities but that is no reason to not seek appreciation of what you have not understood in the past. Indeed, you are a unique person in your own right, but that doesn’t make the person beside you any less so. Find our where the commonalities are between you and where the differences are. Seek a bridge to understanding and deep respect.

The Moon remains very quiet in Aquarius all day.

INTERNAL SENSITIVITY

Sunday, May 26, 2019:

I always like seeing the Moon in Pisces on a Sunday. I think of these days as the perfect time to release high expectations, allow yourself to dream, write a poem, listen to music, watch movies, meditate, or simply rest all day.

With the Moon in the Mutable Water sign of Pisces, you are able to tap into your deepest sensitivities through retreating inward and allowing your imagination and inner guidance to move you.

At 12:34 PM we encounter the Last Quarter Moon phase which brings a bit of a challenge to the day. This is a square aspect between the Gemini Sun and the Pisces Moon, suggesting that it is time to seek a new direction. You are able to do this now through going inward, exploring your intuitions, dreams, and internal meditations.

If you are not spending the day alone, share a movie, music, poetry, a nap. Allow sensitivity to rule the day.

The more one is consciously in touch with one’s own life, the more astrology offers- not sensational surprises or a way of manipulating fate- But rather a means of clarifying the stages of self-development which we should welcome and use as opportunities for personal transformation. – Stephen Arroyo

 

 

BUILDING AND EMPOWERMENT

Monday, May 13, 2019:

With the Moon in Virgo, you will likely begin the week on a ‘neat & tidy’ note. If you are in sync with the universe you may have spent time yesterday perfecting personal systems and preparing for an easy start to the week. This serves you well and allows for early in the week practical accomplishments.

A dynamic trine aspect is formed from the Sun to Pluto before bedtime, impacting today and tomorrow with robust and potent energies. Whatever began in early January is now paying dividends. If you are have been working to build something solid and tangible you can make a great deal of progress now. You don’t need to work super hard, simply give that project attention and you will be surprised at the results.

ROMANCE AND BEAUTY

Tuesday, May 14, 2019:

Venus sextile Mars at 9:58 AM EDT offers a lovely day of self-confidence and creativity. This is a great time for increasing and developing a romantic connection and more casual socializing as well. You may feel playful and charming, and experience other people in that light as well. If your work involves self-promotion and creativity this is an awesome time to push forward that aspect of your efforts. With family and friends, you will notice more tolerance, everyone seems to have a warmer and softer edge to their disposition.

At 2:51 PM EDT the Moon enters Libra further encouraging graceful charming social connections. I don’t’ often recommend shopping but if you have Spring wardrobe purchases that must be made, today or tomorrow would be great for that.

Enjoy beautiful things, dinner out with a loved one, romance, charm and social connections.

START SPRING CLEANING / PLANT A GARDEN

Wednesday, May 15, 2019:

As the Moon moves through Libra you find yourself focused on issues of balance and fairness in your family and social interactions. You are able to see both sides of any controversy creating difficulty if you have serious decisions to make. When you see a situation from all perspectives it is challenging to take a clear decisive move forward.

However, there are important and significant changes at hand today. At 5:45 AM EDT Venus, the planet of relationship, beauty, and pleasure enters Taurus after spending the past three and a half weeks deeply uncomfortable while traveling through Aries. Venus rules Taurus therefore during the next three and a half weeks she is in her happy place. While Venus is in Taurus you find that your tolerance, kindness, and romance quotient is on the increase. While in Taurus Venus supports sensuality, comfort, pleasure, and beauty in relationships. This is a time to express your love in tangible ways. Give gifts, a massage, and plant a garden together. Using Whole Sign House System, consider how you can bring diplomacy, beauty, and love to the House that holds Taurus in your natal chart.

At 11:09 PM EDT Mars leaves restless Gemini behind to enter Cancer. As delighted as Venus is to be in Taurus, Mars is equally unhappy to be in Cancer. Mars wants to push forward with assertiveness and heat, but that very heat is suppressed in Cancer and can be come forth as sulking and passive-aggressive tendencies. Hurt feelings can easily erupt if you try to repress them for too long. That is the concern while Mars is in Cancer. While in Cancer you may try to hide your discontents and end up tripping yourself up in the process. Mars will remain in Cancer until July 1st. Pay attention to emotional reactions particularly within a family context. A great use for this energy is on home repairs or renovations. Even a deep Spring cleaning will help focus and move the energies in a healthy fashion.

 

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!

 

 

TRUST EVENING CONVERSATIONS

Thursday, May 16, 2019:

You will have plenty of adjusting to do as harmonious Venus settles happily into sensual Taurus and assertive Mars tries to understand how he can possibly get anything done in moody Cancer. Give yourself and others some slack as this may simply feel like an awkward day. The Moon in also void-of-course for the bulk of the day which may leave you feeling that you are spinning your wheels without anything to show for it.

At 5:25 PM EDT when the Moon enters Scorpio you want to stop that spinning and get to the bottom of the discomfort. Be careful not to turn on others with suspicion and blame. Go ahead and ask deep probing questions, approach the situation with kindness, trust what you hear and look for the more positive manifestation of dynamics between yourself and others. With a trine aspect between Mercury and Saturn at 7:08 PM EDT you can have confidence in the stabilizing effect of conversations that arise this evening.

EMOTIONAL HONESTY

Friday, May 17, 2019:

As the Moon passes through Scorpio she is quiet but not void-of-course, allowing accomplishment without distraction. You may find yourself naturally inclined to explore powerful emotional depths at this time while not shying away from the darker corners of your individual phycological makeup. You are able to understand deep human sentiments and how folks get caught up in power dynamics that often seem unimaginable, work on compassion toward others.

Scorpio energies go into compelling depths and focus on hidden emotions that most of us, most of the time, prefer to avoid. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we are able to feel deeply, observe our hidden emotional motivations, and see what is not obvious in ourselves and others. Scorpio gets a bad rap as it is a sign that has a profound need to go deep and explore the inner dark corners of the psyche. Go ahead and trust yourself to look inward with compassion and kindness.

I know it is Friday night but the weekend will be more successful if you spend time with one close loving partner. If you are alone, spend time writing in your journal with deep loving honesty.

CHANGE AND REVELATIONS

Saturday, May 18, 2019:

At 12:16 PM EDT Venus, the planet of love, joins with Uranus the planet of defiance and excitement. This can be a game changer regarding love or money. You may receive unexpected news and sudden changes. If you have been enduring a relationship that that has lost its luster, becoming stagnant or boring you may find yourself tipping the balance in some unexpected way. You want to shake things up and find excitement. Go white water rafting together or purchase new sex toys. Find a way to positively shake things up unless there is truly a need to end the partnership.

Each month at the Full Moon the luminaries (Sun and Moon) sit in opposition to each other allowing full illumination of the Moon’s surface. At 5:12 PM EDT we reach the Scorpio Full Moon. Full Moons are strikingly eloquent in their full brilliance, revealing what has previously been hidden. Consider the axis of Scorpio to Taurus. These are both Fixed signs that seek to hold a steadfast position.

At this time the secrets of Scorpio are exposed through connection with the senses and with the earth herself. What can you learn through a powerful connection with your physical body or the earth herself? Get a massage, make love, plant a garden, or go for a hike. Consider what has been growing within that you can now sense the full power and illumination of.

If you are questioning a decision or struggling with a problem, ask your body and the earth to reveal the path forward. This is a powerful day to receive clear messages from the Universe.

At 9:21 PM EDT the Moon enters Sagittarius. Don’t allow yourself to stagnate for the evening. Get out of your normal routines. This is the perfect night to go dancing.

BROADEN YOUR VIEWPOINT

Sunday, May 19, 2019:

The Moon is in idealistic, expansive Sagittarius making no aspects today. Take time to assimilate all that the past week has brought to your life. What has changed? How do you see yourself and your situation differently than you did a week ago?

Your emotional state is lighter and you may want to let loose by finding light-hearted friends to spend the day with. Open your mind and your eyes to a broader more comprehensive perspective. Go on a road trip, spend time in a museum, engage with folks who have something to teach you.

Don’t let your own opinions get the best of you, allow yourself to objectively broaden your viewpoint. Allow your understanding to embrace a more unlimited view of yourself and the universe.

MOTHER’S DAY & THE INFLUENCE OF THE MOON

 

All issues of mother and mothering are in the astrological domain of the Moon. The Moon in your birth chart provides information about your relationship with your mother, your sense of yourself as a woman and mother, as well as your emotional nature, subconscious instinctual nature, and the deepest NEED of your personality.

 

 

In honor of Mothers everywhere, I have set aside time to meet with you for a half hour conversation at $58. (a fraction of my normal rates).

 

 

In this powerful conversation we will discuss:
*  the Sign placement of the Moon at the time of your birth
*  the phase of the Moon at your birth and what that tells us about your position in a cycle of lifetimes
*  Aspects between the Moon and other planets at your birth and how they impact your emotional needs
*  Significant planetary impacts to your Moon in current time and how to manage any changes at hand

 

Feel free to share this email with your friends, your daughters, and your mothers!

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAY MAKES

Monday, May 6, 2019:

Since April 17th Mercury has been moving through Aries, at 2:25 PM EDT it enters Taurus. What a difference a day makes! Consider that Mercury represents our thought processes and communication style. While in Aries you may have noticed yourself and others being more verbally assertive than usual. Perhaps you have also been aware of an edge of impatience in tone and content of communications. Now as Mercury enters Taurus, the tone softens and stabilizes. The way we think and the words we are likely to use are more grounded and based in common sense and deliberation. Don’t let your thinking become overly rote, but do keep your attention on one thing at a time. Keep your mind, your thinking and your communications simple and based in practicality. Mercury will remain in Taurus until May 21st.

Because the Moon is in Gemini at the time Mercury changes sign (Mercury Rules Gemini) I expect this day will have two very separate themes. The morning may feel lighthearted and restless with a powerful shift to calmness after 2:25 PM EDT.

Watch the shift with curiosity and then settle in to enjoy an intellectually slower evening.

If you, like so many have fallen into habitually watching media in the evening before bed, this would be a great time to turn off your television or laptop and read a book or write. Your mind can slow enough to help you develop a new habit.

 

 

ICE CREAM MAY HELP

Tuesday, May 7, 2019:

With the Moon in Gemini, you really would like to keep things light and carefree, however, that is not likely to be the case today. At 9:26 AM EDT Venus forms a challenging square aspect to Saturn. This is not a fun carefree day but if you understand the situation you can use it to deepen your values regarding love and resources. Your choices should be kept to either spending time alone or making a serious effort to stabilize and calm any potential relationship or financial problems. If you find yourself feeling lonely or depressed take the time to look inward for self-reflection and to deepen understanding of your own values.

You may be required to get clear about your responsibilities in relationships and face disappointment. Remember that we all face disappointing in love. It is part and parcel for the terrain. It is normal for us to encounter times of sadness and loneliness. Go inward, look reality in the face. If you need to eat a pint of ice cream to get through the day, that is fine. You will feel better tomorrow. No whining.

WILD MIND SEEKS FREEDOM

Wednesday, May 8, 2019:

The day begins with the Moon in tender-hearted Cancer and yet your thoughts are unlikely to be on issues you would generally associate with this intuitive family-oriented sign. At 10:22 AM EDT Mercury joins with Uranus beginning a cycle that will invigorate your thinking with innovation, intensification, and possibly defiance.

Freedom is very much on your mind as you conceive new ideas and unusual directions to explore moving forward. Gathering with unconventional new friends will do wonders for waking you to awe-inspiring ways of thinking. Ask questions, seek out remarkable ideas, and allow yourself to consider what has previously been inconceivable.

At 10:52 PM EDT the Sun sextiles Neptune offering a tonic of calm and sweet imaginings just in time to settle your mind into a space of dreaminess before sleep.

SYMPATHY AND UNDERSTANDING

Thursday, May 9, 2019:

As you begin the day, Venus trine Jupiter offers a sense of expansive love allowing you to express affection and kindness easily. This is a great time to mend stressful issues in a relationship. However, later in the day, you may need to rethink your perspective as Venus squares Pluto. Your attention will move to issues of power and control within the relationship. Think ahead and plan how you want to manage any tensions that may arise. Consider your deepest fears of being valued and your partners’ insecurities as well. If either of you is feeling smothered in the relationship you will need to address this issue. Ultimately the relationship may break down or become powerfully strengthened and changed by how you manage the energies today.

With the Moon in Cancer, you want to retreat to a place where you feel protected and at home. Your emotions are heightened and you may be consumed with moodiness. Find a way to soothe yourself (chocolate cake and a bath?) and do your very best to bring sympathy and understanding to others.

READY FOR THE WEEKEND

Friday, May 10, 2019:

Early in the day, the Moon enters Leo bringing a joyful edge into focus. Allow creative endeavors to capture your attention as you move toward the weekend. Mid-afternoon you can anticipate that yourself and your coworkers may be champing at the bit to get out the door and onto a highly anticipated weekend. This may cause a bit of anxiety but nothing you can’t cure by heading home early!

With the Moon in Leo consider how to make space in your weekend for dramatic self-expression and playful creativity. This is a weekend for parties, festivals, being seen, appreciated, giving and receiving expressive love.

Enjoy.

TAKE THE HIGH ROAD

Saturday, May 11, 2019:

The day begins with a trine from the Taurus Sun to Saturn. This is a lovely aspect of stabilization, suggesting the ability to see the results of efforts well managed. You are able to realize a pay-off from determination and hard work that you have engaged in since the first of the year.

The Moon continues through Leo encouraging you to allow yourself the space for creativity and fun. This is a great weekend to spend with children or with the adults in your life who you are able to be spontaneous and playful with. The child within wants to immerse yourself in playful expression.

With that being said, we do come to the First Quarter Moon at 9:13 PM EDT. This phase of the Moon implies both difficulties and opportunities. Pay attention to challenges that arise and find the opportunity within the struggle. This is a time when your choices and decisions will move your life in one direction or another. Therefore take the high road.

 

 

PLAY BECOMES PREPARATION

Sunday, May 12, 2019:

The morning continues with great energy for socialization, playfulness, and fun. This is the perfect morning to take a kite to an open field with children, friends, and a picnic. Don’t let anything hold you back, get out early and enjoy.

The afternoon will bring with it plenty of time to address the chores that must be done before Monday morning. At 12:22 PM EDT the Moon leaves playful Leo behind to enter Virgo where she will support all accomplishment of those chores.

Settling in for practical activities will be easy to do as long as you gave yourself enough play time while the Moon was in Leo. The afternoon will be great for preparing for the week ahead, you may surprise yourself at how truly enjoyable the grocery shopping, laundry, and house cleaning can be. Get the whole family engaged in these activities and the satisfaction of efficient productivity.

RECOMMIT AND STABILIZE STRUCTURE
Monday, April 29, 2019:

You may want nothing more than to continue hitting the snooze button as a new week calls you back, unwillingly to the real world. If only you could spend the day immersed in dreamland. The Moon in dreamy Pisces is certainly a mixed blessing. If you have to get yourself out the door to a job or have significant responsibilities this may be a rough morning. If you are an artist, a philosopher, or a mystic with time to explore imagination and inspiration, you will enjoy the morning tremendously. Regardless of the trajectory of your day, take a bit of time for meditation or prayer before pushing forth any other agenda.

Saturn turns retrograde this evening. The slow-moving planets are retrograde for long periods of time and do not impact us on an intimate level the way the personal planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars tend to.
However with Saturn now turning retrograde consider the house that holds Capricorn in your chart. This is an area that has required a great deal of effort and learning over the past 16 months. Saturn will remain retrograde here until September 18, 2019. If you have planets between 17 and 21 degrees of any Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) you will be particularly affected by this movement.
Consider the effort you have expended and agenda you have been pushing forward in this area of your life. For now, reverse your focus, go inward, recommit, and make sure the bedrock is firm. Are there things in this area of your life that you need to take responsibility for? Face your responsibilities directly and do some internal work that will help build strength and stability in this area of your life.

SHOW COMPASSION – FIND CONNECTION
Tuesday, April 30, 2019:

I am going to repeat what I said yesterday because it is at least as applicable today: regardless of the trajectory of your day, take a bit of time for meditation or prayer before pushing forth other agendas.
The day begins with the Moon still moving through mystical, imaginative Pisces. Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, but deeply emotional energies. This is a great day to spend time with water, head to the ocean, a river, a lake, or just take a long hot soak in the tub! Allow yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watch movies, write or read poetry, create music.
Make it a point to look directly at every person you encounter today, remember that like you, they are seeking a pleasant life of love and ease. Show kindness, they are each more like you than you know. Show compassion and find a connection in the eyes of the young man behind the cash register at the grocery store or the waitstaff at your favorite restaurant.
Go ahead and enjoy an extra glass of wine before bed, tomorrow you will have much more energy for accomplishment.

PRACTICE PATIENCE 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019:

Don’t be surprised if you wake up early with lots of energy and lots to say! Mercury, the planet of communication has formed aspects to both Mars and Saturn while you slept. There is a strong pull to say something that seems suddenly important and at the same time, you may be concerned about how well this communication with be received. If you say what you need to say, there will likely be pushback. Perhaps it will go the other way. Someone will deliver communication to you and you will push back. That back and forth is necessary in order to come to a consensus. However with the Moon entering assertive forcefull Aries at 6:24 AM EDT this may not be the best time to push too hard for that direct conversation in intimate relationships. In work or project-based relationships you could get a great deal done with this energy as long as everyone involved is committed to equality and respect.
Watch for impulsivness and hastely made decisions. It will not be easy but do practice patience.

A RENEWED PURPOSE
Thursday, May 2, 2019:

The theme of something that needs to be said continues from yesterday. Were you able to exercise patience? The conversation that you hesitated with yesterday may just burst free now, changing the entire structure of the project you are working on or even the landscape of the relationship itself. Trust that everyone involved can handle significant change. Believe that each of you requires a transformation of the very bedrock that you are standing on. Go ahead and say what needs to be said. Patience was so yesterday! Today, seek empowerment and courage. Where you practiced patience yesterday, now you need to practice diplomatic skills and just plain kindness. Allow what you say to open a window into a new world view for the person you are talking to. Be clear about what you are offering and make sure you are able to deliver on that promise. Integrity, deep compassion, and even passionate love are all required today.
With Mercury forming a trine aspect to Jupiter at 11:58 PM EDT you will fall asleep with a renewed purpose and deep understanding.

 

 

SPINNING WHEELS
Friday, May 3, 2019:

Even though there is an edge of impulsive impatience under the surface, not much is likely to happen for the bulk of the day. The Moon is considered to be void-of-course between the time she makes her final direct major aspect in one sign until she enters the next sign. During these times, not much of significance is likely to occur. At 4:48 AM the Moon conjunct Mercury and forms no other aspects until entering Taurus at 4:18 PM EDT. Spend the day managing your impatience, if you feel that you are spinning your wheels, stop and give yourself time to rest. We are also at the darkest point of the Moon as we await the Taurus New Moon tomorrow.
When the Moon enters Taurus it will come as a relief as the edginess dissipates and you can settle into an evening focused on comfort and pleasure. This would be a great evening to schedule a massage for yourself, head home to cook a nice meal or go for an extended walk in nature.
As the sensual Taurus Moon conjuncts with Uranus at bedtime, prepare ahead with beautiful flowers by your bedside, clean sheets on the bed and plan to indulge in the excitement of body pleasures before sleep.

TAURUS NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED OF COMFORT
Saturday, May 4, 2019:

Because the New Moon is not exact until 6:46 PM EDT wait to do the New Moon ritual until tomorrow or even Monday. The New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon hold the same position, the ritual is most powerful if they are given time to create a bit of distance between them.
This is a day to take your time with everything that you do.
When the Moon is in sensual slow moving Taurus, you are able to experience life more fully through all of your senses. Slow down, be quiet and still. There is no need to push yourself toward any accomplishment. This is a day for self-indulgence and indulging the senses of those around you. Your senses seek arousal with good food, good sex, good music, perhaps a massage. Get outdoors in nature, prepare the soil in your garden, and walk barefoot on the earth. Listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth brings forth to those who listen.

~~New Moon Ritual ~~
TAURUS NEW MOON RITUAL
Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this Moon Cycle. The Taurus New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of sensuality, patience, and comfort.
Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the 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 toward you that which you want to create as you physically bring the two candles closer together.
Do this each day for two weeks until the Scorpio Full Moon on May 18th when you will bring the candles fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

 

 

EXPANSION OF PHILOSOPHICAL UNDERSTANDING
Sunday, May 5, 2019:

The most significant planetary activity comes at 5:56 PM EDT when Mars, the planet of determination and direct action forms an opposition to Jupiter the planet of expansion and growth. Where in your life are you pushing yourself toward personal growth? What began at the start of their cycle in January of 2018? Look back now and you can see how far you have come on that path in the past 16 months. If you need to make adjustments, now is the time to do so. Use the power of your will and available courage to continue on the path toward increased philosophical understanding.
With the Moon still in Taurus keep close to home. Your desire for loyalty, security, and comfort motivate you. Slow down and enjoy a day of relaxation as you consider those bigger issues of personal growth. This is a day of quiet and stillness. If possible get outdoors, listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth offers.

“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 circumstance.” ~ Dane Rudhyar

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
