With Mars, Venus, and Mercury all changing signs this week, we can anticipate an unusually busy week with many unexpected shifts occurring upon unstable ground.

Very early Wednesday morning (in EST), Mars, the planet of courage, assertiveness, anger, and possibly even violence leaves steadfast Capricorn behind to enter the unpredictable realm of Aquarius. Pay attention to your actions and the actions of others. You can anticipate folks resorting to unexpected, unusual, and erratic ways of acquiring their desires. Mars will remain in Aquarius until December 19th.

Near midnight (in EST) on Friday, Venus, the planet of diplomacy, partnership, and refinement leaves the freedom of Sagittarius behind to enter authoritative, conservative Capricorn. In Capricorn, the planet of love and our resources seeks serious commitment to our personal values within these areas. In Capricorn, Venus demands hard work to acquire our desires. Venus will remain in Capricorn until December 7th.

On Saturday morning, Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and perception leaves the intensity of Scorpio behind to move into freedom seeking Sagittarius. Your thoughts should lighten up as you plan a way to expand your awareness of the larger world around you. Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 2nd.

MAKE THE EFFORT TO AFFECT CHANGE

Monday, November 7, 2016:

The week begins with the Scorpio Sun sextile transformative Pluto. This indicates that an opportunity is offered that will bring powerful internal change. This may be a change of heart, change of mind, change of perspective, or any combination of these.

However, the square aspect formed between the unconventional Aquarius Moon and the suspicious Scorpio Sun brings a serious challenge to any change being contemplated.

Do not shy away from the effort. If you see an opportunity offered, take it. Perhaps it is not an easy process, but the work involved will serve you well in the days and weeks to come.

Consider your most private struggles to move toward change. Make the effort to see these struggles objectively. Look at alternative viewpoints and understand the necessity for change.

This is the First Quarter Square of the lunar cycle. It is time to take the appropriate action. Do you know what that action is? What seed did you plant at the New Moon? Push it forward with an action taken on Monday.

The Moon trine expansive Jupiter and is sextile serious, hardworking Saturn which supports forward motion. Go ahead. Make the effort.

DON’T FORGET TO VOTE TOMORROW.

 

 

VOTE: THEN TURN INWARD

Tuesday, November 8, 2016:

For Tuesday’s weather report, I will avoid thinking or mentioning too much about the fact that this is the day of the US presidential election. The only thing I will say about it is: “Please Vote”. If possible, do your voting before 8:55 AM EST or after 4:46 PM EST.  Regardless of when you vote, VOTE.

The revolutionary Aquarius Moon forms a supportive sextile to sweet Venus just before the Moon goes VOC*. This allows our minds and hearts to maintain some availability and openness throughout the day.

At 4:46 PM EST, when the Moon enters elusive, susceptible Pisces we may find it difficult to understand how to move through an environment that feels vague, intangible, and confusing.

You may be tempted to spend the evening in front of the television or drinking heavily. Time on your meditation cushion will serve you, the culture, and the planet better. Go inward. Settle your own internal demons. Watch as the cards fall where they may. Know that you have done all that you can do.

Everyone you meet is feeling the stress. Offer kindness and rich compassion to yourself and all you encounter.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:55 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 4:46 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.

 

 

COURAGE MEETS REVOLUTION/ INNOVATION

Wednesday, November 9, 2016:

In the midst of the fluid, surreal environment we find ourselves in (Moon in Pisces), courageous Mars the planet of courage, assertiveness, and even violence leaves the sign of the adult (Capricorn) behind to enter the unpredictable realm of the Revolutionary (Aquarius).

Unusual and unconventional ways of achieving your goals may come to mind and be rapidly acted upon. Channel this energy with some caution and integrity. Put your energy into humanitarian goals rather than personal ones.

Pay attention to your actions and the actions of others. You can anticipate folks resorting to unexpected, unusual, and erratic ways of acquiring their desires. Mars will remain in Aquarius until December 19th.

At 7:50 PM EST, the mystical Pisces Moon squares cautious Saturn suggesting that idealism may turn to frustration. You may experience the feeling of frustration and exhaustion. Shortly after midnight when the Pisces Moon trine the Scorpio Sun, your energy will return, bringing with it a brighter day on Thursday.

 

 

CLARITY, COURAGE, DETERMINATION

Thursday, November 10, 2016:

On Thursday, the intuitive Pisces Moon forms a trine aspect to the transformative Scorpio Sun and Mercury (also in the profoundly intense sign of Scorpio). You may breathe a sign of relief or acceptance. When the Moon squares lovely Venus at 6:15 PM EST, you may not understand the implications as you move forward into this new state of relief or acceptance.  You (and all of us) have held much anxiety over the past weeks and possibly months!

At 8:45 PM EST, as the Moon enters assertive Aries, your confusion and lack of clarity is released. You feel stronger, more determined, and ready to take on whatever challenges lay ahead. Be careful not to embody an attitude of arrogance. Allow your thinking to settle down into a kinder space as the Aries Moon approaches a sextile to Mars at bedtime (EST). Friday will bring more clarity, more courage, and more determination to move ahead. 

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:17 PM EST until she enters Aries at 8:45 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.

 

 

ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER

Friday, November 11, 2016:

You may feel inpatient with Friday’s lack of activity after the buildup of anxiety over the past weeks. You may feel more on edge than you expected you would at this point in the process. We are now three days into the outcome of the USA elections. Have we settled yet?

At 6:46 PM EST, when the Moon opposes optimistic Jupiter you may see your need to continue the development of courage and your need to bring others into your inner circle to help pave the way.

When the assertive Aries Moon squares compulsive Pluto at 10:09 PM EDT, you may have difficulty managing the intensity you find yourself engaged in. However, when the Moon trine Saturn shortly thereafter, you realize that you are able to stabilize the situation, maintain a mature handle on your circumstances, and utilize the situation for personal growth. Moving through this day is really just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other without engaging in your own self-created inner turmoil.

Just before midnight Venus, the planet of our personal values enters the cautious, mature sign of Capricorn where she will stay until December 7th. Over the coming days and weeks, we will learn the importance of patience. Delayed gratification and deep abiding patience support the true lasting value of our desires.

CANDLELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Saturday, November 12, 2016:

Saturday morning, we wake up with lovely Venus newly in mature Capricorn ready to teach us all about patience in love. There is no rushing true, lasting love. You must take your time, hold steady, and develop the integrity and bedrock of your own true values.

Mercury, the planet of intellect and thought process, has been developing deep connections and intensity since entering Scorpio on October 24th.  At 9:39 AM EST, Mercury leaves Scorpio behind to enter Sagittarius where your philosophical understanding of your place in the world is ready to grow in wisdom. Consider the centaur (half human and half horse) that is the symbol of Sagittarius. Visualize that the centaur is releasing the arrow high in the air. The perspective of Sagittarius is not the perspective of the centaur. The perspective of Sagittarius is the perspective of the arrow at its highest altitude.

Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 2nd. Take advantage of this time to allow your mind to grow in awareness, inclusion, and understanding. Share your understanding with others while allowing each person to draw their own conclusions and develop their own opinions. We are all so different in our view of the world. Diversity is what makes it all work. Love the differences.

At 9:23 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus inviting us to seek sensual pleasures and beauty. Spend the evening with a lover or an art project. The night is made to create beauty, comfort, and earthly reverence. Candlelight and tasty treats are in order.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:45 AM EST until she enters Taurus at 9:23 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.

 

 

EMBRACE BEAUTY & LOVE

Sunday, November 13, 2016:

Sunday is a simple, and possibly, sleepy day made for pleasure. There may be little reason to get out of bed other than possibly to create wonderful food to further deepen the pleasure of the day.

With much stress now left behind, you may really need this day of rest. Create a nest to luxuriate in, binge watch a TV series, or watch a few lovely movies. The other choice for the day would be to spend time in nature connecting with the reality and solidity of the natural world. Get out and soak in the dependability of the land; commune with the trees or the ocean. Allow nature to move your soul.

At 9:46 PM EST, the Moon trine Pluto offers you the opportunity to absorb the power in nature and the power of love. We are closing in on the Taurus Full Moon on Monday, a time of full illumination of the connection to stability and reverence that Taurus offers. Embrace Love.

Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Keebler-Ross

ENJOY ‘CREEPY’ PLAY – HALLOWEEN

Monday, October 31, 2016:

Halloween falls on a day perfect for the holiday. The sensitive Moon is in mysterious Scorpio enabling us to look into the face of all that is anticipated for this traditionally ‘creepy’ holiday.

At the same time, it is a calm day astrologically; you won’t need to worry about the intensity of ‘creepy play’ spilling into real world fears or compulsions. The Moon makes charming aspects to both Pluto (representing the underworld) and Mars (representing strength and courage) enabling you to play with these energies while learning about yourself through the reality of what is being expressed.  Go ahead and play; enjoy the expression of all that calls to you from the other side of the veil.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:44 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius on Tuesday at 10:44 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.

 

DREAMS AND EXPLORATIONS

Tuesday, November 1, 2016:

You may wake up on Tuesday morning with a deep desire to stay in your warm space of sleep and dreams. Of course, most of you will need to get up and start the day but there is nothing to stop you from bringing your dreams with you.

At 4:16 AM EDT, the vital Sun trines transcendent Neptune encouraging you to continue feeding the dream that began last February. It should be easy to simply roll with the sense that things are not as they appear to be. Do you feel overly sensitive, perhaps even confused or dreamy?

If there was a dream or a powerful impression that began last February, bring your awareness to how you can now utilize what that dream brought into your life. What do you bring to the table now because of how that dream has changed you and your path forward?

Allow yourself to enjoy a sense of groundlessness, a diffuse dreamy state on Tuesday. Trust where you find yourself; allow intuition to guide your steps. Show others what you have learned by trusting your intuition and inspirations.

When the gentle Moon enters philosophical Sagittarius at 10:44 AM EDT, you can expect an increase in physical energy and in your desire for exploration. When the Moon is in Sagittarius, it is always a good time to plan a trip or explore differences of culture and lifestyle. On a Tuesday night, you probably won’t be taking the next jet out of the country to explore the world, but you can sit at home and enjoy a great documentary that may help you understand how others live, love, and experience the full range of their lives.

Tuesday begins with the Scorpio Moon VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Sagittarius at 10:44 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.

SHIFT GEARS

Wednesday, November 2, 2016:

Enjoy the delightful, optimistic Sagittarius Moon for one more day. Wednesday begins with a sextile from the receptive Moon to expansive Jupiter at 9:59 AM EDT.  You may find yourself longing for life to present you with experiences that will enrich and enlarge your life and your mind.  You may feel that life is bigger than you thought. Everything feels larger than life. Hold onto that sense of excitement and freedom for as long as you can.

Say YES to anyone who offers opportunities for emotional expansion and excitement.

When the Moon conjoins Saturn at 4:10 PM EDT, you will likely be brought back to reality regardless of your desires or best intentions.  Go ahead and shift gears. Allow yourself to set the excitement aside to look into the eyes of reality.

While you sleep on Wednesday night (during in the wee hours of Thursday morning), Mercury sextile Pluto. Before you go to bed on Wednesday night, make sure you have pen and paper by your bed to record your dreams. You may have intense dreams of successfully releasing ways of thinking that you have been stuck with for many years.  Pay attention and release.

 

EXPRESS POWERFUL IDEAS

Thursday, November 3, 2016:

At the breakfast table on Thursday morning, be sure to get everyone involved in talking about your dreams from Wednesday night.

At 1:09 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Pluto bringing powerful ideas and thoughts to mind. Since you were probably asleep at that time, those ideas probably expressed themselves in your dreams. This aspect will remain active throughout the day offering you the opportunity to speak about some important issue that you have been hesitant to talk about.

This is the day to speak about, write about, or somehow communicate a significant truth. There is an excellent chance that your fears around this communication will simply disappear as soon as you say what needs to be said.

With the Moon VOC* all day, there is little chance that much will come of this communication. Nevertheless, it will smooth the path, and release fear, for the changes ahead, as your mind grows in understanding.

At 11:05 PM EDT, the Moon will leave behind the lightness of Sagittarius and move into rigid, serious Capricorn. You can look forward to a productive day on Friday.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:36 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 11:05 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.

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT & EFFORT

Friday, November 4, 2016:

Friday is a day to express ambition and make sure your integrity level is up to par. Move into the day with a clear idea of what you can realistically accomplish while holding true to your highest ideals. This is a serious day but one with few complications (until evening when you begin to feel the Venus trine Uranus, which will be exact early Saturday morning).

Keep your nose to the grindstone and your feet planted firmly on the ground. Focus on the completion of any prior commitments or move forward with projects of an organizational nature.

As you head into the evening, the energy shifts and you will feel the excitement or anxiety that is calling from the outside world. There may be more surprises.

The U.S. elections have shown and continue to show us, so much that is deeply disturbing and powerfully unnerving.  It is clear how much we have to gain and lose in the days ahead. This is the time to make sure you are talking amongst yourselves.

Make sure your friends and  loved ones are going to vote next week. The future is in your hands.  This is the weekend to volunteer at the phone banks for your political choices. Don’t neglect your responsibility to push us all forward to a better tomorrow.

SENSITIVITY AND EXCITEMENT

Saturday, November 5, 2016:

As Saturday begins, remember to pay attention, not only to the intensity of the outer world, but also to the development of your closest partnerships and love relationships. Finding a balance between the outer world and the inner world is crucial at this time. Neither one can be neglected.

You may get unexpected or unusual information about a loved one or see a side of a situation you were not anticipating. Refined harmonious Venus trine revolutionary unconventional Uranus at 2:23 AM EDT, this transit will stay with us throughout the day. This may be experienced as exciting, something you can see in a positive light for the greater good.

However, at 5:26 AM EDT the highly sensitive Moon joins with powerful Pluto beginning the day with deeply intense emotion. You may feel highly capable, even powerful, as you work to manage this depth of emotion.

At 5:48 PM EDT, the reactionary Moon squares defiant Uranus bringing an element of friction to the evening. Your desire to maintain stability through routine and limiting structures is brought into question. Allow yourself to break the out of control and cynicism on Saturday.  Add the unusual to the evening. Do something unexpected to bring your true authentic self forward.

 

MAINTAIN EQUILIBRIUM

Sunday, November 6, 2016:

On Sunday morning, we enter Daylight Savings Time in the U.S.; as we move forward this will be reflected in Astrolore’s posts. If you live in another time zone, please adjust accordingly.

Here in the USA, everything is so ramped up in the current presidential elections. It is challenging to maintain our equilibrium. However, Sunday is a day to do your best to simply sit with exactly where you find yourself. You are very likely surrounding yourselves with folks who believe much as you do about the candidates and the outcomes. Otherwise your stress level would be over the Moon! 😉

With the emotional Moon entering Aquarius at 8:56 AM EST, this is a day to spend with like-minded friends. I would tell you to rest from all of the anxiety swimming around this issue but we all know that is not possible. Let’s hope we can get back to normal over the next few weeks. For now, hold steady in the company of those who have your back.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:57 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 8:56 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.

Sending light & love, Laurie

Instead of getting angry, nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.” ― Dalai Lama

What a wonderful quote. Finding gratitude in our hearts for those who are challenging to us may not be easy, but the benefits will resonate with your soul through lifetimes. It is like I said last week on Facebook: “Say what needs to be said and turn back to Love”. Speak truth while holding love as the baseline… no matter.

ANTICIPATION AND REVELATIONS

Monday, October 24, 2016:

Monday begins with a brilliant trine between the extroverted Leo Moon and unconventional Uranus. We start the day with unexpected excitement and anticipation. Unusual and innovative ideas hover around us, waiting for us to pay attention. Follow your curiosity, especially if it is leading in directions that make your heart beat a little faster.

At 4:46 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of intellect and perception, leaves Libra behind to enter the deep, intense waters of Scorpio. Mercury is moving quickly and will only remain in Scorpio until November 12th. This is a good time to dig deeply and investigate what has been hidden from view. Your focus may be intense, very private, and highly perceptive.

Pay attention to unusual, and potentially dark revelations.

At 11:16 PM EDT, the Moon enters efficient, industrious Virgo after being VOC* all day.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:21 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 11:16 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.

 

A LIGHT TOUCH

Tuesday, October 25, 2016:

Normally, the industrious Virgo Moon brings practical hard-working energy to the table.

However, on Tuesday practicality and productivity may be distracted by confusion, misplaced imagination, or even delusions.  At 9:54 PM EDT, Venus, the planet that supports our love relationships and finances, opposes Neptune, the planet that can dissolve what is real in order to develop compassion and inspiration.

You may feel love and romance in the air, but check how much substance is behind it. If you began a love relationship (or some other significant dream) in late March 2016, look at what has developed from it. Money and love can slip through your fingers at a time like this as Neptune dissolves what we hoped would develop into something solid and real. The most significant connections now will be of a spiritual nature. Allow inspiration and allow life to not make clear sense. Hold love with a light touch.

On Wednesday, when the Moon squares Saturn, your feet will land once again on the Earth and you will be ready to face reality.

 

KINDNESS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

Wednesday, October 26, 2016:

Wednesday brings clarity after Tuesday’s confusion. You will have the ability to use the practical Virgo Moon for productivity and efficiency without distraction.

Venus, the planet that represents your dearest values of love and resources, forms a sextile aspect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and good fortune.  Yes, Venus is still engaged with the fantasies of Neptune (from Tuesday’s transit) so you will need to keep your eyes open and awareness fully engaged.

However, opportunities presented now are significant. Do not rush into anything but do not walk away.

Is there a connection to something of beauty that began in the last week of August? Whatever is offered now will require an important step forward during the last week of November.

Bring this energy of expansive love out into the world in any way you are able. Get creative! Take simple actions to show love everywhere you go. Bring coffee to the homeless person on the street. Offer a simple smile to the lonely. Consider how many folks are alone, how many folks long to be seen and acknowledged in even the smallest way. You can make a big difference in the world with your attention and kindness. How many people can you show kindness to on this one day?

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:33 PM EDT until she enters Libra on Thursday morning at 9:51 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.

 

SEEK TRUE ACCEPTANCE

Thursday, October 27, 2016:

The sensitive Moon enters social Libra at 9:51 AM EDT on Thursday morning. The Moon in diplomatic Libra encourages us to engage in cooperation, to create harmonious social situations, and to engage in acts of love and beauty. It may not be easy to make clear decisions, as you are likely to see both sides of each situation you encounter.

Given the choice, seek out and create charm, grace, and beauty.

At 12:16 PM EDT, when communicative Mercury conjoins the mysterious Scorpio Sun, you may need to set aside some of that charm in order to be clear and honest in your communications. Do not be too attached to your own opinions; listen to what others have to say.  Really listen; listen in order to understand the fundamental differences between you.

Share your understanding without trying to make others think as you think. Share in order to better understand each other regardless of how different your views. A commitment to true diversity is not always easy. We really do see the world through different filters. Seek true acceptance.

The Moon is VOC* on Thursday morning until she enters Libra at 9:51 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.

 

REMOVE EXPECTATIONS; SET ASSUMPTIONS ASIDE

Friday, October 28, 2016:

Friday begins with the graceful Libra Moon making direct contact with philosophical Jupiter, expanding your belief and generosity in your intimate partnerships or increasing your enthusiasm in the beauty you bring to the world.  The receptive Moon is also in sweet contact with both Venus and Saturn, offering you the opportunity to enrich and stabilize your closest loving partnerships through diplomacy, romance, or aesthetics.

When the Moon squares Pluto at 4:11 PM EDT, you may temporality lose your balance and encounter unwanted power dynamics.  Don’t engage too directly; allow issues of fear and control to pass over without feeling that you need to jump on any bandwagon.

As the day comes to a close, the square from Mars to Uranus (exact shortly after midnight Friday night – this energy will be prominent on Friday and Saturday) will dominate the evening.  Aggressive Mars square unpredictable Uranus can be angry, impatient, and dangerously assertive.

Keep a clear eye, over the weekend, on what is happening on the world stage as well as how you are managing to keep your own equilibrium solid.  Spend time in meditation; do your very best to develop a wider perspective on the world and a grander view of what is possible. What can you develop in partnerships and love if you remove expectations and set assumptions aside. Make the effort to simply discover, understand, and learn to express your own needs and desires.

STABILIZE LOVE & PERSONAL VALUES

Saturday, October 29, 2016:

Saturday we are presented with a powerful day as we continue working with the erratic energy of dynamic Mars square unconventional Uranus (this aspect was exact shortly after midnight).

The Libra Moon is VOC* for the majority of the day enabling some of the challenges that seem significant in the moment to ultimately pass without result.

At 8:44 PM EDT, pleasure seeking Venus conjunct responsible, stern Saturn may well leave you feeling lonely and unappreciated. However, think of this transit as the beginning of a cycle of stabilizing your most personal values, love, sensuality, and resources. Spend time on Saturday determining what beauty and love you want to bring into the world over the coming year. Plant a seed (as you do at a New Moon) that will have the opportunity to grow into mature love and beauty that will sustain itself over the course of time.

Where (in what house) does 14° Sagittarius fall in your chart? It is there that the seed will be best supported by rich soil and sunlight.

At 10:01 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio bringing us into sight of the New Moon on Sunday.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:10 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 10:01 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.

 

SCORPION NEW MOON – VULNERABILITY

Sunday, October 30, 2016:

Sunday begins with a touch of magic as mental Mercury trine elusive Neptune.  Mercury is the planet of our conscious mind, Neptune the planet of dreams, illusions, devotion and idealism. At this time, you can express the more inspired, spiritual, and compassionate side of yourself. This is a wonderful day for music, poetry, or spiritual explorations.

At 1:39 PM EDT, the New Moon is exact at 7° Scorpio.

Please take time to do a simple New Moon ritual.  You will want to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon and within 24 hours.  This Scorpio New Moon brings powerful energy for the development of the expression of deep emotion. Set an intention regarding your ability to share your most powerful vulnerabilities and to hold, with great honor, the vulnerabilities of your loved ones.

Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual.  Keep it simple.  Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin or create in the upcoming cycle.  What do you want to see increase over the coming month?  Have two candles available for your ritual.  Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time.  Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you want to create.  Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle.  As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together.  At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

I am holding my breath trying to imagine how this week will play out on the political, social, and cultural level.

The week begins on the heels of the overly aggressive Aries Full Moon; she was in such close contact with unpredictable Uranus as well as Mercury (the planet of communication) being highly stressed by its connection to destructive Pluto.

With the wild politics the USA is engaged in, I can only imagine how these final weeks before the election will play out.

This week brings much change.

Venus, the planet that teaches us how to create relationship and beauty leaves issues of privacy and suspicion (Scorpio) behind as she enters Sagittarius where she explores new ways to create her heart’s desires.

Keep your eyes open on Wednesday and Thursday, as there are grave suggestions of fireworks and more unexpected surprises. Within the culture and political system, I don’t know what else could further surprise us… but keep your eyes open.

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. Allow more joy and love into your life.

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 conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

NO SAFETY NET

Monday, October 17, 2016:

With the Moon in steadfast Taurus on Monday, we simply want to settle into a safety net. With aggressive, angry Mars moving toward its contact point with transformative Pluto (exact on Wednesday), it feels like the safety net may not be trustworthy. There are those among us who seek stability through the destruction of all that they do not understand. Power may seem solid, stable, and even trustworthy, it may be deceptive.

On a personal level, does your power come at the expense of others; or is your life at the mercy of the power grab of others? If you look clearly, and work at dismantling your own misogyny, racism, sexism, bigotry etc., the rest of the week will be not quite so brutal. Facing these issues is paramount for this entire week.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:47 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 10:29 AM Tuesday 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.

 

EXPLORE PERSPECTIVES ON LOVE

Tuesday, October 18, 2016:

Tuesday feels better, by far, than Monday. By the time we begin the day the planet of love, beauty, and grace (Venus) will have entered Sagittarius after being in Scorpio since September 23rd. If your relationships have wandered into depths of intensity and even darkness these past 3 ½ weeks, you can anticipate a reprieve of that intensity. Venus will remain in optimistic fun-loving Sagittarius until she enters responsible, disciplined Capricorn on November 12. For now, enjoy the focus on exploration and expansion. You will be able to see broader potentials and possibilities for love and intimate connections.

At 10:29 AM EDT, when the Moon enters Gemini, you will want to seek out friends and acquaintances for conversation and sharing perspectives and ideas. You may encounter some discord when the chatty Gemini Moon opposes Venus at 11:10 AM EDT. Don’t engage in negative banter. This is a quickly passing issue and not worthy of extended engagement. Say what needs to be said and turn your attention back toward love. You do not need to agree with the values of others to remain kind and keep your own words above the fray.

The Taurus Moon begins Tuesday VOC* until she enters Gemini at 10:29 AM EDT.

 

INTENSE PRESSURE IN A VOLATILE WORLD

Bluetentraume by Jan Schuler via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, October 19, 2016:

Wednesday brings intense pressure to an already volatile environment.

At 7:22 AM EDT, Mars (the planet of aggression and anger) conjoins Pluto (the planet of power and coercion) at 15° Capricorn. Nothing feels unimportant or trivial. Everywhere you look you are likely to see folks in serious power struggles. It may be difficult, but do your best to maintain calm and project equilibrium. Thursday’s powerful transit of Mercury to Uranus is fanning the flames as well. Watch the political arena for more stories that none of us want to hear.

Stand back and carefully weigh your position before leaping to conclusions in any personal circumstances or communications. The intense pressure to take action and maintain control will not be easy to manage. Do not neglect your meditation practice at all this week, do what you can to maintain stability.

Understand that the pressure you see in the culture is the same pressure that you feel within your own gut. This pressure is also present in all the people you encounter. Show kindness to everyone you meet; you can make more of a difference than you may expect. Helping to smooth the path for those around you will sooth your own way.

 

UNPREDICTABLE CONVERSATIONS

Thursday, October 20, 2016:

You will likely begin Wednesday without a restful sleep to smooth the passage of another stressful day. The Moon begins the day in unsettled, restless Gemini. In the wee hours of the morning, logical Mercury will show a highly illogical side with an opposition to Uranus. The challenges from Wednesday may shift from an arena of coercion and control to verbal defiance with revolutionary overtones.

On a personal level, keep your interactions with others on an even keel or simply spend time with like-minded folks. Go ahead and engage in heated conversations with folks who will agree with you.  Trying to engage folks who have a very different perspective could end badly!

The energies showing up here in the middle of this week are not the energies we want to see reflected in these days leading up to the US presidential elections, but we are all far beyond being surprised by any of it.

At 11:29 AM EDT, the receptive Moon enters sensitive, intuitive Cancer. Pull your loved ones close and foster kindness in your domestic life.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for a brief time between 7:17 AM EDT and 11:29 AM EDT when she enters Cancer.

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.

 

THE NECESSITY OF RISK

Friday, October 21, 2016:

Friday’s sensitive Cancer Moon wants nothing more than connection with home, tenderness, and family. However, there are factors that are apt to pull you into areas of distinct anger, power, and even rage or obsession. Like I said, this in not an easy week.

As the Cancer Moon goes head to head with the hidden forces of destructive Pluto at 1:13 PM EDT and with the frustration and anger of Mars at 4:05 PM EDT, keep your head above water and show kindness and love in every circumstance.

The world is changing outside your doors and within your heart and mind. As you watch the internal and the external changes, notice how they match up as a distinct reflection of each other. Do not run from this stress. Keep your heart open. Change is necessary and cannot happen without upheaval.

Do not underestimate the depth of change that is happening at the core of our political system. Do not underestimate the depth of change that is happening at the core of your own values, thoughts, and emotions. Allow change, allow upheaval; trust the process. One day we will look back on these days with wonder.

For now, step forward consciously, love deeply, and understand that sometimes you will need to take risks to find the path that will enliven your heart.

SUN ENTERS DEEP, PRIVATE SCORPIO

Saturday, October 22, 2016:

The stress of the week is still with us throughout the early part of Saturday.

At 3:14 PM EDT, the tender Cancer Moon squares the Libra Sun. You may feel stress between the desire to go deeply into emotional connection and the need to make things look good. Don’t worry about how things look, pay attention to the reality underneath appearance.

At 3:35 PM EDT, the sensitive Moon enters playful, fun-loving Leo. Several hours later at 7:45 PM EDT, the Sun enters secretive and introspective Scorpio.

Scorpio and Leo are each fixed signs, both are big on determination and accustomed to getting their own way. Leo and Scorpio make uncomfortable bedfellows as Leo wants to express every inner feeling and Scorpio wanting privacy and to avoid the limelight.

Social activities on Saturday evening could be difficult due to the discomfort of balancing these very diverse energies.

Here in the Northern hemisphere, we are very aware of the changing seasons during this upcoming month while the Sun moves through Scorpio. The darkness overtakes the light, we feel secretive, mysterious, deep, and private. We understand the transformation that occurs below the surface in the dark.

Enjoy this time; it is a powerful time of intensity and transformation.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for a very brief time between 3:14 PM EDT and 3:35 PM EDT when she enters Leo.

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.

 

NEEDING REST

Sunday, October 23, 2016:

Finally, you can take a deep breath and relax. We all need a rest. Sunday should provide just that.  The creative expression of the Leo Moon is in the mood for child-like fun and games. Set aside the challenges of the past few weeks and put on hold the ideas you most recently had of where you thought you were headed.  Things are not set in stone; allow change.

In the early hours of the day, the Moon makes sweet aspects to harmonious Venus and expansive Jupiter. There may be excitement, optimum, good fortune, and new opportunities. Keep your eyes open for what you know to be the right path and the most powerful way forward.

At 4:20 PM EDT, when the Sun trines the Leo Moon, you have the opportunity to see what stands in the way of your deeper understanding of where you now find yourself.

Hello my dear readers,

I’d like you to start this week with a quote by Pema Chodron.  It is a long one. Take the time to slowly read and contemplate it. Hold its wisdom in your heart as you move through the coming week.

Sending love and light,

Laurie

 

An Autumn Idyll by Francis Davis Millet via Wiki Commons

An Autumn Idyll by Francis Davis Millet via Wiki Commons

“We start with ourselves. We make ourselves right or we make ourselves wrong, every day, every week, every month and year of our lives. We feel that we have to be right so that we can feel good. We don’t want to be wrong because then we’ll feel bad. But we could be more compassionate toward all these parts of ourselves. When we feel right, we can look at that. Feeling right can feel good; we can be completely sure of how right we are and have a lot of people agreeing with us about how right we are. But suppose someone does not agree with us? Then what happens? Do we find ourselves getting angry and aggressive? If we look into the very moment of anger or aggression, we might see that this is what wars are made of. This is what race riots are made of: feeling that we have to be right, being thrown off and righteously indignant when someone disagrees with us. On the other hand, when we find ourselves feeling wrong, convinced that we’re wrong, getting solid about being wrong, we could also look at that. The whole right and wrong business closes us down and makes our world smaller. Wanting situations and relationships to be solid, permanent, and graspable obscures the pith of the matter, which is that things are fundamentally groundless.

Instead of making others right or wrong, or bottling up right and wrong in ourselves, there’s a middle way, a very powerful middle way. We could see it as sitting on the razor’s edge, not falling off to the right or the left. This middle way involves not hanging on to our version so tightly. It involves keeping our hearts and minds open long enough to entertain the idea that when we make things wrong, we do it out of a desire to obtain some kind of ground or security. Equally, when we make things right, we are still trying to obtain some kind of ground or security. Could our minds and our hearts be big enough just to hang out in that space where we’re not entirely certain about who’s right and who’s wrong? Could we have no agenda when we walk into a room with another person, not know what to say, not make that person wrong or right? Could we see, hear, feel other people as they really are? It is powerful to practice this way, because we’ll find ourselves continually rushing around to try to feel secure again — to make ourselves or them either right or wrong. But true communication can happen only in that open space.“ ~ Pema Chodron

CHALLENGE YOUR ASSUMPTIONS

Monday, October 10, 2016:

By the time you wake up Monday morning, the Moon will be in humanitarian Aquarius.  Be prepared to accept and engage with a free flow of creative, unusual ideas as you consider your future and the future of our culture on Monday. Keep your mind open and look clearly from a new and unexpected perspective.

Encourage open dialogue in the expression and sharing of new ideas for future development. If you are drawn to a new course of study or a new way of perceiving your world, follow your curiosity. If you encounter people with very different ideas, welcome them as a way of more deeply developing and engaging your own thoughts and ability to articulate your ideas and beliefs. Challenge your thinking and your assumptions.

Consider a social activity in the evening for the sheer enjoyment of encountering new thoughts, opinions, and original perspectives. Follow your curiosity into new dimensions of intellect. Enjoy the play of conversation and where it may take you.

The Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:51 PM EDT on Sunday until she enters unusual Aquarius at 2:33 AM EDT Monday 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.

 

PATH OF FORGIVENESS

Tuesday, October 11, 2016:

Tuesday is an astrologically active day, beginning with mental Mercury (in diplomatic Libra) conjunct expansive Jupiter at 5:45 AM EDT. Pay attention to what thoughts you awake with and any dreams that linger.

This is a day to think about and express your most optimistic big ideas.

Trust your ability to bring these ideas to fruition, in order to do so you must dauntingly engage your mind and your conversations. The Universe will support your manifestation of ideas and plans that are engaged with in speech and concrete plans. Go ahead; speak aloud your BIG IDEAS, BIG PLANS, and BIG DREAMS.

Pay attention to how these ideas are closely connected to the release of a dream or an unrealistic idea that began in January 2015. This is related to Mars sextile Neptune at 1:03 PM EDT. You have the opportunity now to clearly understand how that release will foster a more realistic dream that will come in to focus in January 2017. The best form for this release to take is through the path of forgiveness. Contemplating and forgiving your own mistakes and unintentional wrongs will enable you to understand and forgive those who have wronged you.  The true development of forgiveness is more important to your life path than you may imagine.

With the Aquarius Moon sextile Uranus at 7:49 PM EDT, it should be a great evening to enjoy exciting banter with friends.

The revolutionary Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:49 PM EDT until she enters poetic Pisces at 8:42 AM EDT Wednesday 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.

MEETING THE DIVINE

Wednesday, October 12, 2016:

Wednesday is a day best used for spiritual development or daydreaming. Pisces is a mutable water sign, arguably the most sensitive sign in the zodiac. The Moon in Pisces provides us with an emotionally sensitive day where we are highly attuned to intuition and the emotional states of others. The challenge of any day with strong Pisces energy is in dealing with real world responsibilities and realities.

If you must go to work and play an adult role, do the best you can while paying more attention than usual to intuition. If you don’t have to deal with the real world on Wednesday, enjoy a sense of deep sensitivity, idealistic compassion, and mystical transcendence. Engage in spiritual practice, artistic practice, or any other practice that helps you to meet with the divine.

In all interactions with others, make profound compassionate connection. You can do that with a simple kind word and conscious eye contact. Practice it. This is where you meet the divine in others.

The quirky Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:49 PM EDT Tuesday until she enters sensitive Pisces at 8:42 AM EDT on Wednesday. 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.

 

KEEP EMPATHY CLOSE AT HAND

Thursday, October 13, 2016:

At 6:19 AM EDT, the Pisces Moon square Saturn may have you feeling out of sorts when you awake Thursday morning. In most things on Thursday, it will be good to follow your personal intuition and take your own counsel. However, don’t listen to the little voice that tells you to call out sick from your job. That voice is illusion, not intuition and will be long gone by the time the Moon sextiles Pluto at 10:20 AM EDT. Pluto offers empowerment to intuition and assures us that whatever our intuitive heart chooses to explore at this time will shine a light on a powerful core within us to be developed over the coming weeks.

At 4:59 PM EDT as Mercury squares Mars, keep your eyes open. Please do not start arguments or allow yourself to be pulled into them. Find a way to engage your mind in developing healthy ways to assert your opinions without making it about who is right and who is wrong. Listen to others, respect that they do not see or experience the world in the same way that you do. Take the high road.

Another healthy way to work with this transit is to argue for the underdog, stand up for a cause that is dear to your heart. Keeping empathy close at hand will help you to not get too tied to results that are not within your current control.

 

SPEAK UP

Friday, October 14, 2016:

Friday begins with a continuation of the sensitivity that has been with us for a few days. Allow a passive dreamy state to remain for the early morning hours.

At 11:08 AM EDT, the Moon enters Aries returning you to self-confidence; you are ready to face the world head-on. Indeed, you may notice less patience but you will welcome a renewed sense of independence and self-determination.

With Mercury sextile Saturn at 2:46 PM EDT, you are ready to articulate thoughts of future plans. Communication and intentions are expressed and heard easily. If you have been struggling with the need to express a desire to let go of a plan or project,this would be a good time to say what needs to be said.

With the Aries Moon opposite Jupiter at 11:33 PM EDT, you may head to bed feeling satisfied, optimistic, and possibly infused with wisdom. Sleep well!

The sensitive Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:13 AM EDT until she enters assertive Aries at 11:08 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.

DIGNITY AND COURAGE

Saturday, October 15, 2016:

Saturday will offer us each the possibility of a powerful and challenging day. The Moon in Aries offers independence and courage to face whatever the day brings.

At 6:43 AM EDT, the Sun opposes revolutionary Uranus.  Sudden events, unusual occurrences, and unexpected surprises may leave you agitated, unsettled, or potentially excited. Remaining detached from results and outcomes will be the best way for you to maintain balance and equanimity.  Remember, this could potentially be excitement that changes your world. Excellent news can leave us just as unsettled as bad news. Make no assumptions!

“The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang onto, no parachute. The good news is there’s no ground.” ~ Chogyam Trungpa Rimpoche

At 10:29 PM EDT as Mercury comes to square Pluto, we may do well to sit in meditation before bed. It is easy to get caught up with obsessive or destructive thinking patterns when we are so unsettled. Use this aspect of deep powerful mental activity to gain powerful insights to your deepest inner landscapes.

Shortly after midnight (Sunday morning), the Aries Full Moon conjunct Uranus shows us the power of revolutionary change; do consider that with the Sun in Libra it is important to understand that compromises must be made.  Compromise with dignity and courage in all things.

 

ARIES FULL MOON – COMPROMISE WITH COURAGE

Sunday, October 16, 2016:

Just as the day begins (just past midnight of Saturday – but Sunday nevertheless) we reach the Aries Full Moon at 12:23 AM EDT.

What seed of love did you plant on the Libra New Moon of September 30th? Now at the Full Moon observe how that seed has grown. Can you see with clarity what you have developed?

The Libra New Moon was about the expansion and growth of love, partnership, and resources. Since then, I suspect you have gotten more realistic about where you stand in the development of this romantic vision. On the one side, stands the Aries Moon, so strong in independence and forcefulness; so clear about getting, and even demanding what you want. On the other side stands the Libra Sun insisting that you get clear and understand the level of compromise you need to make to get close enough to your desires.  You do not get to have it all your way Aries; you must include the balanced diplomacy of Libra. Together, you can have it all.

At 11:04 AM EDT, the Moon leaves combative Aries behind and relaxes into the deliberate steadfast consistency of Taurus. Allow the rest of the day to hold a steady dependable calm. This is what you need.

Get a massage on Sunday evening or just spend it quietly at home in comfort with family and loved ones. Relax, find calm.
