Astrology Weather: Week of December 16, 2013 – December 22, 2013

The Astrological Weather

for the Week of

December 16, 2013 – December 22, 2013

This week brings with it significant change: Full Moon, Winter Solstice, Uranus station direct, Venus station retrograde! Play with whatever energies show up and enjoy the on-going ride!

On Tuesday we come to The FULL MOON IN GEMINI, encouraging us to release and express what has been building over the past two weeks. URANUS turns Direct on Tuesday, as well, having been retrograde since July 17, 2013. Anticipate something unexpected from the past resurfacing over the coming weeks.

Saturday marks the Winter Solstice, as the SUN enters CAPRICORN, changing the energy irrevocably
for all of us. The joyful play of Sagittarius moves into the serious ambition of Capricorn.

The other big news on Saturday VENUS begins her Retrograde, which will last for approximately 6 weeks. This is a time to consider what it means to be satisfied.

Now, let’s break the week down, day by day!

Monday, December 16, 2013:

On Monday the MOON is in GEMINI all day. Her only aspect being an opposition to MERCURY. Because MERCURY rules GEMINI this connection intensifies the GEMINI energy of the day.
It is important to keep in mind that tomorrow is the Gemini Full Moon, meaning that we are reaching the very height of the Moon’s energy, within the current cycle.

This is a strong day for building energy; building curiosity and gathering information. We can expect enthusiasm, our minds are active, changeable, restless, and inquisitive. At the Full Moon tomorrow we will be ready to release this creative energy into the world through communication of some sort. For today consider where this cycle began (2 weeks ago at the New Moon) and what it entails for you. Spend time today gathering the information that you need to prepare to release at the tomorrow’s Full Moon.

Tuesday, December 17, 2013:

Tuesday brings us to the GEMINI FULL MOON (25°) exact at 4:28 AM EST. Today’s FULL MOON brings us to a release of energy. Consider what began on the NEW MOON (December 1st). If you pay attention you can see the results, or the culmination, now of what began then.

The GEMINI FULL MOON releases a creative energy of expression through words and communications. What are you now ready to talk about that you just began to notice several weeks ago? Whatever you need to talk about is probably best done before the MOON ENTERS CANCER at 1:17PM EST. Things aren’t as emotional and people won’t take things as personally before 1:17PM EST.

Once the MOON ENTERS CANCER we are far more sensitive and emotional. Make it an early evening, head home to family, close loved ones, or time alone in a hot bath. Make yourself a special meal and enjoy the warmth of home. Go ahead; pull out the photo albums – allow nostalgia… just a bit.


URANUS turns Direct on Tuesday, as well, having been retrograde since July 17, 2013. Anticipate something unexpected from the past resurfacing over the coming weeks. Where is 8Degrees ARIES in your chart! Look for inspiration or something unexpected in this area of your life.

Wednesday, December 18, 2013:

Wednesday may be the edgiest day that we encounter this week. The MOON still in CANCER does her little tangle with the ongoing URANUS SQUARE PLUTO transit. We have been talking about that transit for so long! With the past few weeks being relatively pleasant, it has been tempting to think that we have passed the influence of that heavy, intense, transformational transit.

However, on days like today, with the MOON connecting them once again we are reminded once again of where the stress of that relationship between URANUS AND PLUTO is working upon us. Our transformations are not yet complete, there are still areas that we have not worked on or completed the work on!

We are still being asked to change to transform the way we live with each other and on this planet. There may be some moodiness, some sadness, some loneliness today as we are reminded of the changes that are still seeking expression.

If your mother is still alive, count yourself lucky, and give her a call. She will be really happy to hear from you.

Thursday, December 19, 2013:

Thursday is another day with MOON IN CANCER through the day.

The MOON connects with both JUPITER AND SATURN, re-energizing the Trine between SATURN AND JUPITER. This is such a lovely aspect and we are able to strongly connect with it on Thursday.

Enthusiasm, wonder, and joy in our lives can be strong and at the same time highly realistic. We understand the need to keep our feet on the ground and to live in the real world and find our pleasure there.

We don’t need those rose colored glasses to love our lives, we are able to love our lives even with all that is imperfect and even flawed. Consider what brings you satisfaction. We each determine for ourselves what is enough. Find beauty exactly where you are at this moment.

This will be the day when everyone at your place of employment will bring holiday cookies & sweets! This is a day to connect over food. Many of us nurture and feel nurtured through food; we show each other love through cooking for each other and serving each other.

Today is a day to give gifts of food or to cook for your loved ones. If you have family around, get out the old photo albums; reminisce, enjoy thoughts and memories of times gone by.

Before you enjoy your mug of eggnog and the warmth of the fire – bring some hot food to the homeless shelter or directly to the person standing on the corner who is without the blessings that most of us take so for granted.

Friday, December 20, 2013:

We wake up on Friday and notice a very different energy! The MOON ENTERED LEO at 1:48 AM EST. this is a great day for expression, performance, and play!

There is a great deal of energy as the LEO MOON makes lovely aspects to both MARS and URANUS. This should be a great time for accomplishment as we want to get a lot done, we want to be out in the world to see and be seen. There is excitement as we continue to prepare for the upcoming holiday.

When the LEO MOON TRINE URANUS in ARIES we may well get some sort of a surprise or an inspiration. Keep your eyes open to some excitement this evening. This is the last full day of the SUN IN SAGITTARIUS. Perhaps it would be appropriate to get out to a party this evening.

A great night for a party! You may meet people that bring surprising changes and excitement into your life. You may also bring excitement and surprise to the life of those you meet!

Saturday, December 21, 2013:

On Saturday everything changes. This brings us to the WINTER SOLSTICE! The Solstice marks the longest night in the Northern Hemisphere and the longest day in the Southern Hemisphere.


The solstice is an astronomical event, caused by Earth’s tilt on its axis, and its motion in orbit around the sun. No matter where we live this is a time of celebration. Here in the northern hemisphere following these weeks of so much darkness we are terribly excited that the days will begin to get longer. This is a seasonal shift that we all notice. In the southern hemisphere the days begin to get shorter as their seasons shift in the other direction.

This brings us to the time that The SUN ENTERS CAPRICORN (12:10 PM EST). The Sun moving through Sagittarius offers much excitement and positive, hopeful energy. It always feels a bit surprising to me when the SUN shifts to CAPRICORN.

The fun of the past few weeks settles into a more serious mode. We suddenly notice our concern about the condition of our checkbooks following a possible recent spending spree. We are really ready to get serious, to get back to work or projects that are important to us and yet we still have some time before the holidays are over. Making this adjustment can be a little difficult for a few days. Knowing that the light is coming back is, however, a great motivation in all areas! What relief!

VENUS TURNS RETROGRADE (28degrees CAPRICORN) at 4:53 PM EST.
VENUS will be retrograde for approximately 6 weeks. Take this time to look at the issue of love and pleasure. Look clearly at your tendency to dis-satisfaction. Look to the area between 13degrees Capricorn and 28degrees Capricorn to understand more about where this energy will be impacting you, where you need to understand your own tendency toward dis-satisfaction.

Sunday, December 22, 2013:

Sunday is a day to take it easy if you can. If you are celebrating the holiday, today is the day to wrap your presents and get last minute preparations done.

The moon is VOC in LEO following a TRINE to MERCURY at 8:26 AM.
There is a lot to adjust to with the shift in the Sun Sign and Venus’ retrograde. It is a day of adjustment! The MOON ENTERS VIRGO at 2:19 PM EST bringing us into an evening of organizing, settling-in, and getting ready for the upcoming week.

_______________________________

Onward to the next week! Make the most of this one! They are each with us for such a short period of time!

Thanks for being here.

Week of November 18 – November 24, 2013

It is a pleasure to see a week with so little to report; a relatively uneventful week is a welcome time, indeed. *

It is a good idea to consider whatever situation threw you a curve-ball between Wednesday and Friday of last week. You know the issue I am talking about. It had something to do with money, love, jealousy, feelings of entitlement, and possibly rage. If you were following my posts I hope that you were able to work with that issue in a manner that pulled you out of some old habitual patterns! What did you learn from that situation? How did you manage it?

Whatever that situation; it has landed you on the first tentative steps of a new path regarding love, money, and resources. This cycle will play out fully  between now and December 20, 2014. The more consciousness you bring to the beginning of this cycle the more joy you will find in the results that will be clearly visible by the final week of July 2014.

Monday, November 18, 2013:

The week begins with a great deal of curiosity and awareness of how much we would like to accomplish! You may feel easily overwhelmed with the variety of thoughts, projects, and activities calling for your attention. Monday could well be a day when focus is difficult to achieve. The MOON IN GEMINI can scatter and destabilize our energy.

There is no end to the thoughts and ideas that seem shiny and new! We are curious to see the possibilities that the week holds. Monday is a great day for intellectual pursuits, social interactions, and communications of all sorts. Also a good day to get a variety of errands accomplished. Get up and get busy early. There is much to do!

Tuesday, November 19, 2013:

The MOON remains in GEMINI throughout Tuesday keeping our minds busily engaged in curiosity, communication, and gathering information. Along with all this mental energy, our physical energy is being amped up considerably as well. MARS, the planet of assertive action, forms a lovely SEXTILE to JUPITER, the planet of expansion, generosity, and optimism.

Our political or religious convictions can be easily aroused during this influence. We have great enthusiasm to expound our beliefs. We need space to grow and have little patience for anyone who may try to restrict us or our convictions. At 11AM EST the MOON makes her final aspect (SQUARE MARS) while in GEMINI. The energy of assertiveness or self righteous anger will hold sway throughout the duration of the VOC Moon which will last for the rest of the day.

MERCURY CONJUNCTS the NORTH NODE in SCORPIO on Tuesday as well. If you meet anyone (within a 2day window) take note. If that person immediately draws you into intense conversation, take double note. Perhaps this person has something deeply significant to teach you. Be available (with a degree of caution, Scorpio after all) to exchange contact information. This could prove to be an important connection.

Wednesday, November 20, 2013:

MOON ENTERS CANCER 6:23 AM EST

It is a relief to notice that the anxiety of our minds settle down on Wednesday morning. Our curiosity takes a detour as we notice ourselves more engaging in matters of the heart.

Our minds settle down, and then deepen considerably, as our hearts open. This is a day when we may shed tears in situations that we would not expect to; we are not necessarily sad just an outpouring of emotion and the swelling of our hearts.  The chatter of our minds over the past few days is settled and we are pulled into a very deep emotional space.

This evening MERCURY (Scorpio) SEXTILE PLUTO (Capricorn) (9:08PM EST) offering us the opportunity to look into some of the deepest corners of our heart/mind. There are old issues that are ready to release. Go deep today. This is an opportunity for healing.

Thursday, November 21, 2013:

MOON IN CANCER tangles with the Uranus Pluto Square.

In this generally easy flowing week, today is the day that could catch you in tangles of emotion, power struggles, and unintended sudden outbursts. Pay attention, and do your best, to divert outward expression of anxiety and aggravation. We are highly attuned to emotion; perhaps to the detriment of what may be the more important issues to contend with today.

We may feel deeply in need of security, safety, and emotional warmth even as we are clearly aware of the reality of the changes that are coming. Take a deep breath; this is a fleeting influence. It does not require the impact it will have on us if we allow ourselves to get caught up in the story line of how we have been wronged. Don’t play into that game. Give the issue time to transform itself as you simply observe. If you try to force things to fit your own agenda you will be swept or plunged into unhappy places! Go with the flow; observe what happens around you without being pulled into the drama.

SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS @ 10:47PM EST

This brings a huge shift to our upcoming days! We leave the darkness, the mystery, and emotional intensity of Scorpio behind as we enter the world of Sagittarius. After the past month of looking inward it is now time to expand our vision, increase our understanding, and explore higher realms of wisdom.

It is time to gain a sense of humor and a sense of the absurdity of our wild lives! This is a time to develop new freedoms, new opinions, and new expansive ideas! 

Friday, November 22, 2013:

Friday begins with the MOON still in the realm of sensitive, protective CANCER. Get up early; prepare breakfast for your family, take the time to sit together before heading to work this morning. Sharing food will do far more than simply feeding the body.

The simple act of sharing (or providing) a warm breakfast will build bridges between people’s hearts. Okay, so that may not be reasonable! Try this: make sure everyone has a warm muffin (or other comfort food) with them as they leave the house!

At 2:12AM EST The Moon goes VOC following her final aspect in Cancer; a SEXTILE to MARS. The final aspect the Moon makes before going VOC impacts the entire VOC period. You may notice a pronounced sensitivity to discord and a protective instinct that is easily, quickly, and fiercely aroused.

The MOON will remain in VOC in CANCER until 6:57PM EST. At that time she will enter LEO, just in time for enjoyment of Friday night festivities! A great evening to get out with friends for creative and fun times. We step into a far more extroverted space. We want to be seen and appreciated. Plan for a wonderfully fun evening!

Saturday, November 23, 2013:

It would be hard to imagine better astrological weather for a Saturday in late November!  The SUN is in SAGITTARIUS, the expansive sign of exploration and optimism. The MOON IS IN LEO, reflecting upon us the energy of playfulness, generosity, and an open heart.

Bringing Sagittarius and Leo together is the perfect prescription for a day of fun and exploration. Whatever your plans are for the day, expand upon them. If you have a destination in mind or a task that needs to be done, make sure you leave space and time to extend outward from there. Take a chance, go somewhere new and unexpected. Make a little drive into an adventure! Make that little task into an expansive project of larger proportions, get creative!

VENUS’ SEXTILE to SATURN at 1:45PM EST adds some stability and practicality to the day. Beauty, love, and money are managed with reality in mind. We are offered an opportunity to stabilize the things and people we hold most dear. This is a day to build deep and lasting value.

Sunday, November 24, 2013:

The MOON will be VOC in LEO all day on Sunday. Take it easy. If there are children in your life, spend the day with no other expectations than to enjoy playing with them!

Or spend the day with a new (or long time) lover with no distractions. This is a day to generously express love, creativity, and playfulness with no expectations, no demands; there is nothing that needs to be accomplished! Put your ambitions aside, attempting to fulfill them will bring frustration and unnecessary aggravation.

Just as the day begins SUN SQUARES NEPTUNE, accentuating the sense of ‘nothing to be accomplished’! There is a wistful quality about this day. We long for life to be more ideal, more glamorous, we dream of escaping the harsh realities of our lives. Engage you imagination, inspiration, and whimsy. Find your own path to intangible mystical depths. Get lost in music, creativity, poetry, meditation, prayer. Avoid the easy escape of drugs and alcohol.

Exercise compassion: go somewhere that people gather, observe your judgments of others. As you see judgment arise consider: “s/he wants to be happy, just like me”, “s/he does not want to suffer, just like me”. We are all so intimately connected. This is a day to work on understanding that connection.

* In my 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 it’s VOC time, as that aspect holds it’s influence throughout the VOC*

The Aspects I consider: Conjunctions, Sextiles, Squares, Trines, and Oppositions

The Planets I am working with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

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

Astrology by Astrolore: Week of Nov. 11th – Nov. 17th

Week of November 11 – 17, 2013

I like the look of this week.  The intensity that we were embroiled in several weeks ago, has mellowed out. It now seems almost far away. We have moved on from the eclipses, the most recent Uranus Pluto event, and the other complications involved!

We do have some intensity to deal with in the middle of this week as VENUS makes stressful contact with URANUS and PLUTO.

I like to think that we are learning to work with these energies.

Watch your responses and reactions as issues of power, control, and jealousy crop up. What do you still need to learn regarding these powerful, transformative issues? Look carefully at how you are managing your money, your relationships, and your deepest values. Look at all that you have learned regarding these issues over the past few years. There is still much to learn; and remember how much you have already learned, give yourself credit for all that you have done/learned!

The other important consideration this week is NEPTUNE stationing direct; which is a very subtle influence. Consider what your dreams are bringing to your awareness. Pay attention to your intuition, your dreams, and your imagination. Leave the drink and drugs behind in favor of opening a door to spiritual exploration, meditation, or simply your dreams.

Monday November 11, 2013:

Now that MERCURY is direct she retraces her steps, forming a Trine to NEPTUNE once again. Having passed over this sensitive point first on October 1st, and again two days ago, we now reach the final pass. What gift has this free flow of energy brought into your life? You may notice a blurring of your mind, logical reality seems elusive. You may feel that you are half in dreamland. We understand intuition more than logic at this time. The boundaries between self and others are not as firm as we expect them to be, allowing deep connection and compassion to arise for others.

Once Mercury turns direct we expect clarity and forward motion right away. With Neptune and Pisces (MOON IS IN PISCES) so prominent, don’t jump ahead too quickly. A bit more patience, and a bit more learning from inner spirit, is required.

Take all that you hear with a grain of salt. It is unlikely that the information you receive is what it appears to be. There are times when it is fine to take a break from cold, solid reality.  Encourage your dreams; go where only imagination can take you. Devote yourself to your perception of The Ideal, to mystical inspiration, or even to the transcendence of self.

Clarity is lacking today; enjoy the rose colored glasses, connect with deep love and open compassion. Don’t bother to seek the harsh edges of reality. Enjoy boundlessness, fantasy, illusion, and imagination. Play on that level today. Enjoy.

Tuesday November 12, 2013:

SUN TRINE JUPITER! I have heard this transit called The Cosmic Blessing!  It occurs approximately twice per year allowing a free flow of vitality and expansion into the world. Add to this the MOON IN PISCES and we have a GRAND WATER TRINE today! What we encounter is an Emotional Cosmic Blessing! LOVE as a profound state may be encountered as we meditate on deep compassion and connection to all sentient beings. We may feel a sense of expansion, protection, generosity, and a deep inner blessing.

Regardless of any difficulties in your personal life, reach out to embrace this energy! It is available to ALL of us today. Especially if you are in dark times; touch this warmth, allow yourself to accept its soothing rays.  Reach into the world today with the aspiration of stimulating the optimism, enthusiasm, and warmth of others. Hold your own generosity as a model for others today. Expand on your beliefs, aspirations, and personal philosophy.

MOON in PISCES enters her VOC at 9:34AM after forming the Grand Trine with the SUN and JUPITER.  Moon VOC will last throughout the rest of the day encouraging us to take it easy! Not a time for hard work, pressure, or insistence on accomplishment.

Wednesday November 13, 2013:

Our energy is pulled in several very different directions today. The environment/cosmic weather feels direct and powerful this morning. The MOON ENTERED ARIES AT 2:39AM EST. Today we are ready to take the bull by the horns, stop fooling around, and take charge of getting what we want!

However, we must also take issues of softness and compassion into consideration.

Neptune turns direct at 1:41PM EST at 2degrees Pisces.

This is a subtle energy shift, and will the ARIES MOON being so LOUD, we may miss it altogether if we are not paying attention.

If you have planets at (or near) 2degrees of Mutable Signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) you may sense the opening, shifting, and dissolving of internal boundaries, a softening and blurring of harsh awareness. Where are your dreams ready to move forward through acts of forgiveness or faith? Wherever Pisces lives in your chart is an area where your dreams, devotions, and sensitivities lay beyond the ordinary world.  Look to that area and notice the shift.

The evening may hold some challenge and stress as the aggressive ARIES MOON meets up with the ongoing URANUS SQUARE PLUTO transit.  Be clear about what you want for yourself this evening; consider the transformations of our world and culture and how those changes are impacting your life on a very personal level.

Be prepared to assist others, as many need our helping hands.

Thursday November 14, 2013:

Let’s begin by talking about the simplicity of The MOON IN ARIES. Today’s cosmic weather offers us a great deal of energy to push forward with our personal agenda. There is a natural tendency for each of us to focus on our self and our personal desires. No one is welcome to stand in our way and we really do not want to take ‘no’ for an answer.

But let’s take a look at the more interesting significance of today. This is going to involve you taking out your calendar or your journal.  Have you started keeping a journal yet? It is essential to the study of astrology.

At 9:12PM EST VENUS SQUARE URANUS. This is the Final Square in the cycle between Venus and Uranus. Let’s look at that cycle in a clear simple manner.

Step #1: Conjunction between Venus and Uranus – end of March 2013

This was the beginning phase of development regarding unusual expressions of relationship (love) or resources (money). 

Step #2: Square between Venus and Uranus – mid June 2013

At this time you are required to take a direct action regarding what began in Step #1

Step #3: Opposition between Venus and Uranus – end of August 2013

At this point there is clarity about what was developed from the seed born at the end of March. The success or failure of the project is clear.

Step #4: This is where we are now. The Final Square. We have seen the issue clearly; we have learned what we need to learn from the results we have had. Now we are aware of the areas that need improvement. Now we begin the slow undoing of the mistakes we have made in the work we have done during this cycle. We consider carefully what we have learned. We will improve on this issue of love, money, and personal value when we come to the next cycle, which will begin in mid May 2014.

I would love for you to share how this cycle has played out for you! I would love to hear your process through the changes.

MOON IN ARIES settles into a VOC phase at 3:58PM, spend the evening without expectation of accomplishment or purpose. Routine tasks are a perfect outlet. Get caught up on laundry or get your bills paid.

Friday November 15, 2013:

Today VENUS CONJUNCT PLUTO 4:32PM EST

Yesterday we talked about the cycle between Venus and Uranus; today Venus meets Pluto. Because of the current connection between Uranus and Pluto these two cycles are intimately connected; understanding one cycle will assist you in seeing the other cycle with more clarity. Thinking of these things is a bit like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Simply consider that Venus speaks of love, money, recourses, and personal values; Uranus speaks of freedom, defiance, and individuality; Pluto speaks of power, transformation, and rebirth.

Step #1: Conjunction between Venus and Pluto – mid January 2013: This was the beginning of a full transformation of relationship (love) or resources (money).  This may manifest as a full transformation of the reality of your situation or on a level of your attitudes and beliefs.

Step #2: Square between Venus and Pluto – very end of March 2013: At this time you were required to take a significant action regarding the deep transformation that began in Step #1

Step #3: Opposition between Venus and Pluto – Second week of June 2013: Consider what became clear in the development of the seed born at Step #1. At this time it became clear whether the best actions were taken or not.  The success or failure of the project was clearly apparent.

Step #4: Third Quarter Square between Venus and Pluto – the last week of August 2013: At this time we gain a new level of clarity. We see the progress and the missteps. It is time to look clearly at what has been learned. Consider carefully the improvements that must be made. Begin to develop the plan for how to further transform our relationships to love, money, and personal values when we come to the next cycle between Venus and Pluto.

And here we are today – now we are ready to begin again:

Step #1: TODAY VENUS CONJUNCT PLUTO; we the New Cycle between them! We have completed the cycle that began in January. Look clearly at where that brought you and where you want to plant the new seed today.

This is an amazing opportunity! Where do your attitudes regarding love, your beliefs regarding money, and your understanding regarding beauty need a complete overhaul? Plant the seed for this transformation today!

We can be grateful for the TAURUS MOON (enters at 9:49AM EST) today, as she brings stability and a deep appreciation for steadfastness and grounding.

Go deep in self-exploration and contemplation today and bring deep warmth and comfort to others.

Saturday November 16, 2013:

Let’s hear it for such lovely astrological weather on a Saturday!

In order to truly enjoy the full potential of this day it is most important NOT to cram too much activity into the day! Today you will do well to dedicate yourself to comfort, routines, the building and creating of beauty and/or stability. Do you have purchases to make that will add beauty or comfort to your life? Can they be acquired without adding stress to the day?  If you answer ‘yes’ to both those questions, today would be a great time to make those purchases.

Mid afternoon when the TAURUS MOON OPPOSES SATURN you may notice a low point. Don’t give it a lot of attention or struggle against it; we are in the Dark of the Moon as well. It is best to plan for this one. Think ahead, commit to spending a few hours of quiet time, alone between 2PM EST and 4PM EST.

Stay close to home; get or give a massage; seek pleasure and comfort, create beauty.

Bring simple pleasures, warm comfort, and deep beauty to the lives of others.

Early tomorrow we encounter the Taurus Full Moon; which we will discuss tomorrow. For now, be aware that we are in the Dark of the Moon, and that the wildness we generally attribute to the Full Moon will be bubbling forth in the world tonight. I think I will choose to remain within the Taurus cocoon of stability; let others play out the drama of the Full Moon.  Those who seek out that drama may be disappointed as this Full Moon is far more laid back than most!

Sunday November 17, 2013:

Today’s FULL MOON in TAURUS occurs at 10:16AM EST following a sweet aspect with JUPITER earlier in the morning. This brings a sense of protection and a positive spin on the full expression of beauty available to us now.

This is not a Full Moon of wildness and intensity. We are far more interested in sensuality, solidity, and beauty than at most Full Moons.

On November 3rd the New Moon occurred at 11degrees Scorpio. What seed did you plant regarding deeply transformative emotion at that time? Now, at the Full Moon we see the full creative expression what was planted at that time; a creative release of emotion or transformation.  What do you see as the full expression that is presented now? What have you accomplished over these past two weeks?

Spend the day much as yesterday. Involve yourself in creating and receiving pleasure, stability, and comfort.

Following the Full Moon at 10:16AM EST, the Moon enters her VOC time until she enters GEMINI at 7:07PM EST. The evening may prove to be the most social energy of the weekend. Our minds are active and curious. Dinner and conversation with friends would be a lovely way to end the weekend.

Astrology, Stress, & Coming Unstuck

How are you feeling about where you are in your life today?  The current astrological configurations are reflecting stressful times for all of us.

It is important to remember that ‘stress’ does not equate to ‘bad’!

Stress is our teacher! Embrace the teaching!

There are many of you who are blessed with your heart’s desire! Even with that, you are struggling with questions, stress, and doubt. These are serious times.

Alongside the struggles and the challenges we find opportunities at every juncture in the road.  Keep your eyes open for them!

The question is: are you ready to engage in these opportunities?

Are you ready to step forward, take responsibility for your path, and do the hard work required to take full advantage of this time?  The opportunity for freedom doesn’t come cheap and is not without challenge; none of us get a free ride!

What are you willing to release from your life in order to bring your circumstances to a richer, fuller place with more freedom and joy?

Are you ready to let go of a certain view you have of yourself? You know the one! The view that holds you, firmly stuck in situations of weakness or powerlessness.

It is easy to blame others for the circumstances we find ourselves in. Who are you still holding accountable for your own life? Your parent/s; your sibling/s; your previous spouse/partner; your boss/coworker?

It is important that we take responsibility for our lives, our decisions, and how well we embrace our current circumstances.  

As you let others off the hook, you will see your own responsibility for the entire view of your life.

You are no longer stuck in the places that you have felt unable to move forward in.

Take that step forward; it is yours to take and this is the time!

Contact me today for a consultation!

Remind a loved one that a gift certificate with Astrolore would be the perfect holiday gift!

Responsibility & Reflection

Here we come to the end of another intense week.

Today’s CAPRICORN MOON begins the weekend with a great deal of emotional attachment to our ambitions, our ability to organize, and make use of our resources.

We may be surprised at the end of the day to see how far we have come, how much has been accomplished.

In the early morning hours The MOON makes stressful contact with the infamous URANUS SQUARE PLUTO transit that presents a perfect reflection of the irrevocable shifts, sinkholes, and transmutation of our world.

This reflection is clearly evident in our personal lives, our families, our communities, our nations, our planet, and even our Universe!

This evening also brings us to the FIRST QUARTER MOON (CAPRICORN).

Last Friday’s NEW MOON (exactly connecting with Uranus Square Pluto) was a very significant point in time.

Wow! It certainly uprooted my life! Funny how everything can change on a dime!

Look at your own personal circumstances. What began in your life, what came forth last weekend that now needs to be addressed in a serious manner?

Where in your life is it time to step up to the plate, accept your position of authority and responsibility and move forward with maturity into the unknown future.

Facing this reality will bring more beauty, grace, and balance to your life.

What is the appropriate action to take at this time in order to follow the path begun at last Friday’s LIBRA NEW MOON?
