Some of us may experience the shift of the Sun from Pisces to Aries as a bit disorienting. We go from the energy of dreams, imagination, and sensitivity to the energy of aggression, determination, and of the warrior.

As we attempt to grapple with this shift, Mercury follows the example of the Sun and steps from Pisces into Aries on Monday evening. You may feel this as an awakening of energy, the experience of Spring. It is time to create what you want and take the necessary steps to bring that into reality.

On Wednesday, we have a Full Moon Eclipse in Libra encouraging us to take stock of what we created and began at the New Moon on March 8th.

On Friday, Saturn takes his first steps in retreat as he turns retrograde at 6:01 AM EDT.

 

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.
THOUGHTS PICK UP SPEED

Monday, March 21, 2016:

Don’t be surprise if you feel like keeping your head under your pillow on Monday morning. It’s not that you have any sense of waking up to a bad day but you may wake with a sense of confusion or disorientation.

Now that the Sun is in Aries, you probably thought you were ready to move quickly in a forward direction. However, the day starts with the Moon in opposition to Neptune along with Mercury still in Pisces. These two factors contribute to a sense of internal instability that is likely to leave you wanting sleep…. Or just not knowing what you want!

Don’t let any of that worry you.

At 8:19 PM EDT, Mercury follows the Sun into Aries. Your mind will be ready to move forward, your thoughts will pick up speed, and everything revs up. It is easy to offend others while Mercury is in Aries, as we do not hold back in our communications and are willing to take the risk to tell it like it is!

Maintain your awareness and make sure you are saying what really needs to be said and not just running off at the mouth because of lack of control. Remain aware, keep yourself centered and grounded, even as this energy catapults you forward.
PREPARE FOR WEDNESDAY’S ECLIPSE

Tuesday, March 22, 2016:

Tuesday provides a day of rest. Yes, I know. You thought you were ready to move forward. However, today you need to rest and prepare for the very busy day on Wednesday.

The Moon is in Virgo throughout the day, yet makes no major aspects until after she enters Libra on Wednesday morning. Try not to concern yourself with accomplishments, communications, or any activity that you hope will move some project forward.

As you take the time to rest in the quiet of Tuesday, prepare yourself for tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse. Consider the Solar Eclipse that happened on March 8th. Eclipses always come in pairs and are connected; a Solar Eclipse occurs at a New Moon and a Lunar Eclipse occurs at the Full Moon.

Are you aware of the change that is sweeping through your life, brought on by that Solar Eclipse? Much of the message of the Lunar Eclipse is in digging deeply to work with the underlying issues that must be addressed in order to grow in the direction of change that the Solar Eclipse.

This is your contemplation for Tuesday.

LIBRA LUNAR ECLIPSE – NOSTALGIA ALLOWS RELEASE

Wednesday, March 23, 2016:

At 1:24 AM EDT, the Moon enters Libra bringing an end to that time of rest and preparation that we talked about for Tuesday. Now, it is show time!

At 6:15 AM EDT, Jupiter squares Saturn. This can be a challenging time as the details of a particular situation may feel like they are overtaking or blocking your ability to expand your understanding and make it difficult to keep a grasp onyour own beliefs.

You may question ways of thinking and being in the world that previously felt very solid to you. It is important to continually question your opinions and beliefs as time and circumstances continue to show you new perspectives.

The Libra Full Moon is eclipsed at 8:01 AM EDT. Lunar Eclipses bring our emotions and nostalgia to the surface even as they push our awareness to the passage of time. Something is changing and we must let go. Even if the change is one we have hoped and dreamed of for so long, there still may be difficult emotions to manage as you release the past. Past memories and old dreams come to the surface in order to be released.

With the Libra Moon forming an opposition to Mercury, you may be highly sensitive to any communications that feel out of balance or unfair. You will do well to maintain grace and diplomacy in any such situation.

At 4:10 PM EDT, Mercury conjunct the Sun offers clarity of mind, thinking, and communication. This may be a time of sharp tongues; remember to add the ingredients of grace and diplomacy in all communications.
MOVE YOUR STORY FORWARD

Thursday, March 24, 2016:

Thursday may be a stressful day of assimilating the emotional impact of Wednesday. The Libra Moon, which is concerned with diplomacy and pleasure, forms challenging aspects with both Pluto (the planet of transformation) and Uranus (the planet of revolution).

This startling transit may push you to look beneath the pleasant exterior of your significant relationships. What is hidden beneath the surface and needs to change? Have you been too careful? Have you done your best to hold the status quo steady? What revolutionary thoughts and ideas are occurring behind-the-scenes in the depth of your heart?

At 6:44 PM EDT, Mercury forms a flowing trine aspect to Mars. This is a powerful encouragement to say what needs to be said; a push to telling a story that will make a significant point. Your words will be clear and direct.

With both Mercury and Mars in Fire Signs, conversations could become heated. Whatever is said will have an impact and will move the story-line forward. You may be surprised to hear your own words.
EXPRESS BEAUTY & GENEROSITY

Friday, March 25, 2016:

Early Friday morning, Saturn turns retrograde at 16° Sagittarius. He will remain retrograde until August 13, 2016 when he will turn direct once again at 9° Sagittarius. During this time, we each have the opportunity to look at the issues in our lives connected to boundaries, responsibilities, self-discipline, and hard work.

This is a time of reassessing, and coming to a deeper understanding and acceptance, of our responsibilities. If you have personal planets or points between 9° and 16° of any mutable sign, (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces), this will be particularly significant to you.

On Wednesday, we talked about you feeling blocked in the ability to expand your inner awareness. As Venus connects with both Jupiter and Saturn on Friday, you may feel a powerful desire for beauty and pleasure along with a sense of dissatisfaction and frustration at feeling that growth is somehow blocked for you now.

Pay attention to how you relate to beauty. It may be time to explore ways to embody love, pleasure, beauty, and abundance within your own body, mind, and life. Create a place of beauty in your home. Make a special effort to show generosity. Put a vase of flowers on your kitchen table and one by your bed, and while you are at it, bring another bouquet to a friend. Notice how life expands when you create space for the expression of beauty and generosity.

You may be questioning ways of thinking and being in the world that previously felt very solid to you. It is important to continually question your opinions and beliefs as time and circumstances continue to show you new perspectives. For now, embrace a perspective that soothes your heart with love, music, art, inner beauty, and expansive generosity.

At 2:09 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio bringing us into a deeply emotion space along with and an intense desire for connection. Find deep connection with an intimate friend or lover this Friday night.

LOVE & PASSION

Saturday, March 26, 2016:

On Saturday, you can expect to feel the full energizing passion of Aries. At 6:32 AM EDT, the Sun in Aries forms a free-flowing trine to Mars in Sagittarius! There is excitement in the air and you may feel willing to take on any challenge that presents it self; immediately on the heels of that blast of energy we encounter a sextile aspect between Venus and Pluto. This brings the energy to a decidedly intimate, potentially sexual encounter.

Financial opportunities may also present themselves. Say yes.

Consider back to what began in early February regarding a love relationship or a financial situation. Whatever began at that time, now you have the opportunity to explore the possibilities more deeply and move toward your goal.

The Scorpio Moon forms a beautiful trine aspect to Neptune and a sextile aspect to Jupiter. Your soul wants to make intense and beautiful connections with other beautiful souls. Opportunities are presented and the energy flows. What a wonderful night for deep love, passion, beauty, and abundance.
REST IN QUIET REFLECTION

Sunday, March 27, 2016:

Sunday should provide the perfect day to recover from the delights that I hope you encountered last night. The energy of passion, love, and abundance continues into the day. The Scorpio Moon is very quiet throughout the day, providing us the opportunity to slow down, take some time for quiet reflection, and rest.

I recommend a late brunch with a lover or intimate friends, and a movie to round out the weekend. Embrace the depth of sweetness that is presented.

There are those of you who may not resonate with the fiery energy of this weekend and those of you who may be angry that you have no one to share the passion with. If you find yourself feeling angry, understand that as a manifestation of passion. Utilize the assertiveness in a physical way by biking, running, dancing… whatever will release the tension.

Astrolore sends love to all of you!

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 14, 2016 through March 20, 2016

I think it is safe to say that we can anticipate a very active week!

With Mercury square Saturn on Monday, sextile Pluto and opposing Jupiter on Tuesday, and then conjunct Chiron on Thursday, the planet of quick motion and thinking is highly engaged throughout the week. If you are waiting for calm, quiet days, you may have to wait for a while. Expect ideas and thinking to be overly active and moving in many directions at once.

Jupiter makes a glorious trine to Pluto on Wednesday bringing a flow of opportunity and empowerment. Thursday morning you will want to pay special attention to your meditation, as there is the suggestion of deep healing within the mind as Mercury conjunct Chiron.

On Sunday, the Sun enters Aries and we herald in the Spring Equinox. This is a moment we look forward to as it heralds the moment of Spring! This brings us to the pivotal moment in the year when day equals night; when the light and dark equalize. You can feel it in the air, hear it in the songbirds, and see it in the quality of light.

We all breathe a sign of relief.

SERIOUS MIND; SERIOUS COMMUNICATIONS

Monday, March 14, 2016:

The week begins with the Moon in Gemini, echoing the activity within our minds even as we begin the week. At 3:25 PM EDT, Mercury squares Saturn. When these two planets come together, the mind or what the mind perceives becomes serious. Responsibility cannot be ignored, and you may encounter some type of restriction to your ideas or your thinking. Perhaps, there is fear around some communication that you know is necessary.

This is the First Quarter Square in the cycle between Mercury and Saturn. Something that began back in November 2015 is requiring that you give it attention and take action on it now. Did you start a new study, a new serious conversation, or did you take on a new responsibility at that time? If so, now is the time to push that agenda forward in a direct manner. The full results of the action you take now will be fully expressed in June.

Venus squares Mars on Monday afternoon as well. An important thing to understand when Venus squares Mars is that you need to do something concrete to bring your primary relationship forward. What does your relationship need now? If you are not in a primary relationship, you can use this aspect to care for your primary relationship to yourself or to take direct action in seeking out a partner. If you are in a primary relationship (or in the process of developing one you would like to see thrive), there are things that must be shared and things you need to say that have not yet been said.

Yes, there is a risk involved. However, not saying what needs to be said will extract a high cost and will not reflect reality.

Pay attention to any issues that come up between you and a partner over the next day or two. Do not underestimate the importance of how you both manage your communications.

 

GO AHEAD AND SAY IT

Tuesday, March 15, 2016:

Before you even wake up this morning, there are two major aspects in the heavens. At 2:58 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Pluto, suggesting an opportunity of empowerment is able to come out of the challenging thoughts or communications you had on Monday.

Perhaps, there is some deep problematic thinking that you are being asked to release. Keep your eyes open and let go of thoughts that are holding you back. Whatever is released now will open your ability to bring your true gifts into the world.

Mercury opposes Jupiter at 5:41 AM EDT, suggesting clarity on what began in early August 2015. This is a cycle of expanding your thinking and your ability to communicate. There is still more that needs to be said. Yes, go ahead and say it. It is okay. It is necessary.

Tuesday also brings us to the First-Quarter Moon, asking that we consider what needs to be done to move forward with the seed you planted at the New Moon on March 8th.

Yes, the First-Quarter Moon is a square between the Sun and Moon, and generally, feels restrictive and heavy. You may feel this as a sense of desiring something that is totally incompatible with something else that you deeply need; this often shows up as a conflict between our desires and our needs.

Finding balance may be a challenge. In case of interpersonal conflict, pay attention. Is this really an external conflict with another or is it an internal conflict that you are projecting onto a relationship? Be honest with yourself.

At 8:57 PM EDT, the Moon enters Cancer offering the simplicity of love at the end of a deeply stressful day. Rest in comfort, allowing love to open your heart.

 

POSSIBILITY, WONDER, & MAGIC

Wednesday, March 16, 2016:

Fleures 02 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

Take advantage of the powerful, expansive energies available during the middle of this week. At 4:05 PM EDT, Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion forms a free-flowing trine aspect to Pluto, the energy of divinity and empowerment.

At this time, you are more capable than you know of bringing full manifestation into an area you have invested great energy into. You may feel powerful, capable, and even lucky at this time. Do not wait passively for this transit to activate your life. Get out into the world, reach for what your heart desires and be ready to accept what is given.

Consider your strengths and what you have to offer the world. Understand that as you help others, so you help yourself. Go out in the world today and offer your best actions for the future of humankind, even if that consists only of showing kindness to the grocery clerk or the homeless person on the street.

Synchronicity and surprising incidents may support you in ways that are unexpected or even jaw dropping. If you have personal planets or angles between 15° and 18° of any earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), this will be most auspicious in your circumstances and life.

Think back to what you acquired understanding about during the time between the Summer of 2013 & Spring of 2014. Now is the time to bring that knowledge into a fuller experience of your life; what can you now teach others that you learned at that time? Understand the importance of what you bring to the table and freely teach what you deeply understand.

Keep yourself open to possibilities, wonder, and magic.

 

DISRUPT NEGATIVE HABITS WITH LOVE

Thursday, March 17, 2016:

On Thursday, you will want to focus your attention on releasing and healing negative thought patterns. Mercury conjunct Chiron at 9:28 AM EDT; this begins a cycle of healing deeply negative patterns that have taken root in your mind since childhood.

In order to work effectively with this opportunity, it is important to maintain deep love and compassion for yourself and the reasons you built these patterns in the first place.

Chances are that the patterns were formed in early childhood as a way to protect your self. That protection is no longer needed and the pattern left behind is now holding you back. Look deeply and release.

Firmly embedded patterns in your mind took time to build and will take time to dismantle. Perhaps, the first step is to begin that meditation practice you have talked about for so long. In this process, you must remember love and compassion to the self.

Thursday’s Cancer Moon assists in keeping you close to your heart and your loved ones. Show kindness in all your interactions.

 

DANCE FREELY

Friday, March 18, 2016:

If it were possible for you to take a long weekend, this would be a lovely day to start it. It looks like a delightful weekend ahead. At 3:55 AM EDT, the Moon enters Leo and we are able to leave behind some of the more pressing emotional concerns that have held over since the New Moon and solar eclipse from last week.

Friday is not a day to try to keep yourself to a strict schedule or to be overly concerned with accomplishments or details. This is a day to let loose and move in the direction of what pulls you forward. With the Moon in feisty, playful Leo, forming a free flow of energy (trine) to Mars in Sagittarius this is a time for playful expression, dramatic play, and sheer pleasure.

Don’t take yourself too seriously, and don’t allow yourself to be put into a box that is too tight to fit your expansive nature.

Allow others to express themselves freely by make this a day of no judgment. Yes, dance as if no one were watching… and make space for others to do the same.

PLAYFUL SELF-EXPRESSION

Saturday, March 19, 2016:

More delightful fun, and playful energy continues through Saturday. Get away from your ordinary life this weekend if you can. Saturday is the last full day of the Sun in Pisces. Enjoy the sense of touching on an intangible dream.

A Grand Trine is formed on Saturday between the Moon in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius, and Uranus in Aries. You will want to take an active role in making sure any needs and desires you have for friendship and socialization get met.

This Grand Fire Trine can reflect a situation in which you expect others to understand your needs (do you really think they can read your mind?) and you could get left out in the cold. If you make it clear that you want the connection, I expect that they will be delighted to include you.

This is not a day to be coy, be clear and direct about your desires. Go for what you want. Seek enthusiasm, warmth, and playful self-expression.

 

SPRING EQUINOX – SUN ENTERS ARIES – AWAKEN

Sunday, March 20, 2016:

On Sunday, be ready to welcome the new astrological year! 😉

The Sun enters Aries (The Spring Equinox) at 12:30 AM EDT and we release the chill of winter to welcome the warmth of Spring. Spring begins (here in the Northern Hemisphere) as we come to this pivotal moment when the length of the day equals the length of the night.

We all breathe a sign of relief with the knowledge that it is time to make a new start and to welcome all new beginnings.

Aries is the sign of the Ram, the first sign of the zodiac, and has the energy of a newborn infant demanding his right to be here in all his fiery glory. Release the inward cold of winter, break the chains that have held you back, and take your first steps forward into the unknown excitement ahead.

‘Spring Fever’ is just around the corner as plants take on vigorous growth and even LOVE is in the air.

Go ahead! This is the time to initiate new endeavors, love affairs, and to simply embrace life on all levels.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 7, 2016 through March 13, 2016

We begin the week in the darkest phase of the Moon, preparing for a Pisces New Moon on Tuesday and the full solar eclipse, also on Tuesday!

Job – Out of the depths I cry to you by Andreas Neumann-Nochten via Wiki Commons

When the Moon enters Pisces on Monday, she joins both the Sun and Neptune. As we approach the solar eclipse on Tuesday, we may be aware of the need to release something precious in order to achieve something deeply significant in our lives. It is true that in many instances we can have everything we desire, and yet, there are times when choices must be made. It is important to pay attention to the sometimes subtle difference between fantasy and reality. Often times, they can be exactly the opposite of what one would expect.

There is much to say about any solar eclipse. On Tuesday, I will send out an article written by my student Noelle Letteri about eclipses. Stay tuned for that communication.

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.

 

SEEKING CLARITY

Monday, March 7, 2016:

The week begins in the darkest phase of the Moon. In the astronomical world, this is called the Waning Crescent Moon. Astrologically, it is referred to as the Balsamic Moon. Yes, balsamic, like the vinegar.  🙂

Until the Moon enters Pisces, her movement through Aquarius is cheered by a conjunction with Venus at 3:46 AM EST. As you start the day, take a moment to place your awareness on an understanding of the connection between the Moon and Venus. I think of these two as the representation of the two sides of the Divine Feminine. The Moon represents the mother archetype, the deep, warm, and nurturing aspect of the feminine. Venus, on the other hand, represents the sensual, passionate, and playful expression of the feminine. As they join together, we are asked to open our hearts to deep love and connection that draws on both of these powerful aspects.

At 2:08 PM EST, the Moon joins the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. As we move toward the eclipse and New Moon on Tuesday, things may not be as they appear. Neptune and the sign of Pisces can essentially shroud us in fog.

If passive aggressive behavior or anger of any kind arises, be prepared to meet that energy with kindness and compassion. If you are able to do this, the issue at hand will simply dissolve.

Keep in mind that this is an internal issue, there is no victim; face yourself clearly & show compassion.

 

PISCES NEW MOON & FULL SOLAR ECLIPSE

WELCOME CHANGE

Tuesday, March 8, 2016:

With so much happening on Tuesday, it is hard to know where to begin. At 5:56 AM EST, the Sun opposes Jupiter, asking us to look back to late August 2015. Whatever began in your life at that time, it is now releasing its full creative potential. Consider and give yourself credit for how far you have come.

Tuesday also marks a significant moment in time as we reach the full solar eclipse and the Pisces New Moon occurring at 19° Pisces (8:55 PM EST). A full solar eclipse happens as the Moon comes between our Earth and Sun.

Astrologically, eclipses are considered to bring unexpected changes that push us into much-needed action. Wherever you find 19° Pisces in your chart, it will indicate where you can expect the breaking up of old patterns and major shifting dynamics.

The New Moon is always a time of beginnings; do not underestimate the significance of what you chose to begin at this time. Focus on the area of your life that you know requires the energy of change. To some of you it may seem a bit silly but start to create a New Moon ritual. It can be very simple. Write down on paper what you wish to begin now. What do you want to see increase over the coming months? Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are today. 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, bring the two closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Today’s New Moon brings many powerful energies together to support your forward aspirations. The Moon makes contact with Neptune as we bring our awareness to the dream that moves us forward. She then connects with Saturn reminding us that there is hard work involved. Then she connects with Pluto showing us the access we have to deep empowerment. Finally, she makes contact with Jupiter opening our vision to full expansion.

 

HOW TO DEAL WITH CONFLICT

Wednesday, March 9, 2016:

Composition 02 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

Composition 02 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

You should feel some relief on Wednesday morning as the intense energy of Tuesday begins to subside. At 2:40 PM EST, when the Moon enters fiery, assertive Aries, your relief turns into powerful renewed energy for action and accomplishment.

At 4:51 PM EST, with the Aries Moon trine Mars (in Sagittarius); you are ready to take on the world. Please carefully observe and pay close attention to your reactions, as impulsiveness and impatience may result.

If folks you encounter are exhibiting more aggression then you are comfortable with, please show compassion and understanding. This energy is necessary in order to move forward. Obviously, there is a limit to what is okay and what is not. Use your own internal compass to know when to remove yourself from a situation where you or others are a bit too heated up.

A powerful, sexual connection could be a delightful use of this passionate energy. After all, you do know how bonobos (our closest relations) deal with conflict!

 

ACCEPT WHAT IS YOURS

Thursday, March 10, 2016:

Thursday begins with a continuation of the powerful, assertive energy from Wednesday. Late afternoon offers more steadfastness and calm to that energy as Saturn plays nicely with the Moon at 4:36PM EST.

However, Thursday evening could bring you into emotional situations you may not be prepared to handle. The Aries Moon squares Pluto at 6:02 PM EST and conjunct Uranus at 8:43 PM EST.

Allow plans to change without question, allow others to disappoint you.

Find a way to look inside and accept your feelings. It is important to understand that others may disappoint us without it being a personal issue. Everything is not always about US!

This may well be a very challenging evening but with the Sun conjunct Chiron at 11:26 PM EST, we are given the opportunity to bring warm and healing light to a wound at the depth of our soul. Bask in that warmth and allow deep healing. Sleep soundly.

 

REST IN QUIET CALM

Friday, March 11, 2016:

Friday begins with our minds fully immersed in creative imagination. Mercury joins with Neptune, beginning its annual cycle of uplifting our minds to a high state of bliss or is it a state of confusion? Intellectual ruminations may call you down Alice’s rabbit hole. I suggest you simply enjoy the ride.

At 2:44 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus giving us an opportunity to move into a weekend of relaxation and calm. Don’t plan too many wild adventures over the next few days. Your body and mind really need rest.

Time slows down and you can relax into enjoyments of the senses. Get and give a massage, bake bread, plan your upcoming garden, rejuvenate yourself through silence.

This is a night for calm, quiet, deep love and touch, not the passion of Wednesday night. This connection can produce steady warmth and healing for your soul.

DEEP RESERVOIRS OF GREAT LOVE

Saturday, March 12, 2016:

As Venus leaves Aquarius behind at 5:23AM EST, she joins Neptune, Mercury, Chiron, and the Sun, all in Pisces. This is a powerful line-up of planets in the gentle, sensitive sign of Pisces. Your compassion, imagination, and awareness of suffering are expanded at this time. You may long to merge, and even ‘save’ others in a heightened spiritual manner.

With the Moon still in Taurus, this is a wonderful time for the growth of love and affection in any and all relationships. A lovely Earth Grand Trine forms Saturday evening between the Taurus Moon, Pluto, and Jupiter.

Your physical senses and your awareness of the real practical realities of your life are aligned, sensitive, positive, and deeply empowered. Anticipate tapping into deep reservoirs of great love. Breathe in love and build stores of it deep within your soul.

 

SEEK SOCIAL CONNECTION

Sunday, March 13, 2016:

Sunday begins slowly; you will not be tempted to make any changes to the course of the weekend (as long as you have kept to the program of calm and quiet) until the Moon enters Gemini at 4:04 PM EST.

With the Moon now in chatty, restless Gemini, you have probably fulfilled your need for calm and silence. Now, you will seek social interactions for the late afternoon and evening.

As much as you may need social connections, you may anticipate some stress in relationships. The Moon square Venus and opposing Mars suggests unrest and possible tension. If you spent the majority of the weekend engaged in calm quiet activities, this tension should be relatively easy to manage. Don’t engage with the struggle and it will pass quickly.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: February 29, 2016 through March 6, 2016

The planetary alignment suggests a very active, busy week. We begin the week with the extra day of February. Remember, this is a leap year! Treat it as an EXTRA day and you will begin the week with a sense of abundance!

L'élégante à l'éventail by Louis German via Wiki Commons

L’élégante à l’éventail by Louis German via Wiki Commons

Early in the week, watch as your values or your experience of the values of others, take an interesting turn. This could show up in terms of money or love. You may be presented with an opportunity to stabilize these areas, even as they expand with unexpected or unusual growth. Anticipate and prepare for unique opportunities that can result in powerful new developments.

The weekend ahead may bring communication challenges as your thinking moves through anger followed by a turn toward confusion. Seeking a path toward deeper spiritual understanding will help.

The plus side of the weekend could bring unexpected travel. A road trip to Montreal is not out of the question! But staying out late dancing on Saturday night may not be the best option. Better to get some sleep and enjoy museums or places of worship on Sunday (those churches are beautiful).

This is a powerful week with a lot of changing energies. Hang on for the ride, maintain solid integrity, don’t be hard on yourself or others, and allow yourself to dream.

 


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.

 

SAY ‘YES’

Monday, February 29, 2016:

We begin the week with the Moon connecting with Mars, pushing us forward with a powerful need to take action on some deeply felt issue. At 6:56 PM EST, the Moon enters Sagittarius opening some of the tightness or confusion you may have brought with you from the weekend.

Allow yourself to open your perspective and look to your dreams for the future. At 8:07 PM EST, Venus and Saturn form a sextile. This offers us opportunities in the area of love or money.

Keep your eyes open on Monday and Tuesday for possibilities you may not have considered. If an opportunity presents itself that feels good and proper; simply open your heart and your mind and say ‘Yes’.

 

SO MANY POSSIBILITIES

Tuesday, March 1, 2016:

Starting the day on Tuesday, you may feel like you’re getting up on the wrong side of the bed. These feelings are reflecting the square between the Moon and Neptune

This is the day when navigating the path ahead may bring up many questions. We are distracted and possibly overwhelmed by the possibilities. We intuitively know that there are things we must let go of and directions that must be shifted in order to stay on our path.

The Third Quarter Square between the Sun and Moon occurs at 6:11 PM EST. In order to follow your own best intentions, you must know what to release and where to shift direction. It is important to stay grounded in this process.

Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! Narrow your focus and pay attention to what is necessary.

FOLLOW YOUR HEART

Wednesday, March 2, 2016:

Don’t underestimate the significance of the energies provided on Wednesday.
Your relationships to the most significant people in your life and your deepest held values (including money and other resources) seek exploration and new understanding.

Venus sextiles the wild energy of Uranus at 8:07 PM EST and is asking you (or at least offers the opportunity) to consider solutions and ideas outside the box of convention. With your emotions somewhat detached, you are able to see a bigger view and more possibilities. You don’t have to follow conventional norms or rules; you can follow your deepest hearts desires.

Lines of communication are open and you are open to new ways of experiencing your world. This brings an opportunity to consider alternatives to the status quo, open-minded perspectives, as well as the ability to detach from the opinions of others.

Follow your heart. Give more space to your creative and cerebral thinking.

 

PRACTICAL REALITIES

Thursday, March 3, 2016:

The shift of energy from Wednesday into Thursday may feel considerable. If you loved the energy of Wednesday, today may feel a bit repressive. If you experienced a lot of anxiety on Wednesday, this new energy may feel stable and solid, what a relief!

The Moon enters Capricorn at 5:02 AM EST insisting that you get serious about the practical realities of your life. This is a day for ambition and serious work. You may feel the need to put your personal life on the back burner as you focus on more pragmatic concerns. Enjoy a sense of accomplishment by maintaining that solid focus on all those practical realities.

Before bedtime, it will be important to release that seriousness. Allow yourself a movie, a glass of wine, or extra time on your meditation cushion. Get to sleep in time to tune-in to open, intuitive dream space; especially when the Moon sextile Neptune at 10:57 PM EST.

 

ALLOW FOR IMPERFECTIONS

Friday, March 4, 2016:

The theme of serious, practical accomplishments continues throughout Friday. As the Moon conjunct Pluto at 12:18 PM EST, you will likely be deeply focused on whatever work project you are involved in. Remember, that it may not be easy to be flexible.

At 2:58 PM EST, the Moon squares Uranus and flexibility will be key to managing this transit. If you are too profoundly focused, distractions could become a problem. Allow, develop, and seek flexibility. Allow for the gifts of imperfection and attempt to maintain a sense of humor.

When the Moon trine Jupiter at 3:30 PM EST, tensions should relax and the rest of the afternoon has the potential of being very constructive. You may be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a short period of time.

A quiet evening at home would be advisable. This is not an evening to go looking for pleasure in a social arena. If you want to make plans for socializing this weekend, Saturday evening will be the better choice.

HOLD STEADY WHILE ENERGIES SHIFT

Saturday, March 5, 2016:

This brings us to a very busy weekend ahead. On Saturday, Mercury squares Mars at 12:43 AM EST. Perhaps, you can sleep through the reflection of this argumentative aspect or experience the aggravation within the context of your dreams.

By the time you wake up Saturday morning, Mercury has left Aquarius behind to enter Pisces. You may notice your thinking takes on a very different flavor than it has since Mercury entered Aquarius on February 13th. Your thoughts may go to places of intangibility, high imagination, and deep sensitivity.

It may be difficult to follow a train of thought without getting lost in strong, watery currents. We can expect less clarity and more mystical thinking while Mercury remains in Pisces until March 21st.

At 11:06 AM EST, the Moon leaves serious Capricorn behind to enter detached, intellectual Aquarius. We are finally able to get away from so much focus on work and, on an emotional level, move to a cooler, more detached space where all kinds of possibilities may become available.

At 9:28 PM EST, Mars enters Sagittarius after having been in Scorpio since January 3rd. Mars represents our ability to take decisive action, assertiveness, and how we experience and use our sexual energy. While Mars was in Scorpio, we functioned (sexually and assertively) in deep pools of privacy and discretion as we explored our inner depths.

What have you discovered, hidden under the surface, about how your energy wants or needs to express itself? As Mars moves into Sagittarius, we are open to lighter, more exploratory arenas within which we are able to move our assertive, aggressive, and sexual energies. Explore new territory.

In April 2016, Mars will turn retrograde. This means Mars will remain in Sagittarius until late September 2016. Do you know what house Sagittarius occupies in your chart? This will be an area of significant activity between now and September. Make sure you were living your highest integrity in this area. The importance of this will be clear in the coming months.

 

REALITY AND EMPOWERMENT

Sunday, March 6, 2016:

Sunday begins on a serious note with the Sun square Saturn at 1:03 AM EST. Think back to a most serious issue in late November 2015. On November 29th, the Sun conjunct Saturn which began an annual cycle of developing maturity through integrity and hard work. What began in your life at that time? If you have the answer to that question, it will give you an idea of how to manage the square between them on Sunday.

As this is the Last Quarter Square in their cycle, signifying the end of this influence, it is important that you take an action on what began in late November. This is a serious aspect, asking you to make a decision and take action to move your life forward in a practical manner.

Slow down and consider carefully the vision you are working to create. Be clear that you are taking concrete, real-world steps to develop that dream. This is a time to look at reality and make sure you’re taking the necessary, practical steps forward toward an achievable goal.

As the day comes to a close, the Sun sextile Pluto at 11:40 PM EST which suggests that the hard work you are investing in your future opens possibilities for great empowerment moving forward. This is a delightful energy to end the week with.

Reflect and rejoice.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: February 22, 2016 through February 28, 2016

February is the coldest month of the year here in New England. February’s cold is a very different kind of cold than what we have in December. It tends to be dry and sharp. Personally, I hate being cold, but there is something in the sharpness that wakes me up and makes me feel as alive as the heat of August.

This week begins with a Full Moon in Virgo. What has been illuminated in your life over the past two weeks? Are you caring for yourself and your physical energies in a new, more contemplative manner?

On Tuesday, Jupiter opposes Chiron encouraging us to look with open clarity at our deepest personal beliefs and how they support our lives.

On Thursday, Mercury is sextile Saturn, offering stability to your thinking and your projects.

On Friday, that same stability encounters new ideas, excitement, and the desire to open your mind in new directions. Perhaps, you are planning a trip or a new educational endeavor; or perhaps you should consider doing so!

Over the weekend, energies deepen as the Sun conjuncts Neptune on Sunday. You may be feeling lost, confused, or divinely inspired. If you do not have a pathway for inspiration to find you, let music take you there. Put on headphones, listen with new ears, and allow yourself to be moved.

CELEBRATE THE VIRGO FULL MOON

Monday, February 22, 2016:

On Monday morning, the Moon enters Virgo at 6:25 AM EST. We are instinctively drawn toward organization and efficient work. You may have a clear sense of your purpose and the skills you must develop in order to fully embody that purpose.

Monday’s Full Moon in Virgo reminds us to consider how far we have come since we began this lunar cycle two weeks ago at the Pisces New Moon. Whatever project or contemplation began at that time is fully released now into the reality of this world. This speaks to the release of creative energy and provides us with a clear view of how far we have come.

Many of us are deeply aware of a strong buzz at the Full Moon. You may have a clear sense of energy that has been building and now needs to be released. Allow yourself to celebrate this powerful, expressive energy.

Pay attention to what has been building in your life over the last two weeks. Enjoy where it has brought you. If your spiritual practice has been growing and evolving, you will find great satisfaction with where you find yourself now.

 

RELEASE PERFECTION; FIND MAGIC

Tuesday, February 23, 2016:

Very early Tuesday morning, the Moon, still in Virgo, opposes Neptune. You must understand and accept the reality of living in a human body even as you stay true to your higher idealized vision of spiritual wisdom.

With the Moon opposite Neptune, it may be difficult to accept hard, cold reality at the same time as you open to the spiritual wisdom that aligns on a much deeper level with your soul. We must learn to release the need for perfection in order to find spiritual magic.

An opposition from Jupiter to Chiron encourages us to look clearly at our belief system and understand how our suffering allows us to connect with compassion for those who suffer just as we do.

Make no mistake; suffering is a significant and very human experience. If we use our suffering to understand the suffering of others, and we use that understanding to be of service to others, we will live a rich life indeed.

As the Virgo Moon trine Pluto and conjunct Jupiter on Monday evening, your ability to open your mind to new spiritual and emotional horizons is deeply empowered.

 

SPONTANEOUS DATE NIGHT

Wednesday, February 24, 2016:

Wednesday begins with the Moon still in Virgo and forming a sextile to Mars. Beginning the day with physical activity would be ideal. Go for a run, get to the gym, or go for a spirited walk in the woods. Consider this physical activity to be a significant part of your day. Put real energy into that activity, no halfhearted efforts.

The rest of the day is likely to be quiet and uneventful. Do not start any significant activities or projects. This is the day to catch up on routine details; clean out your e-mail box, organize your files, or get the laundry caught up.

With the Moon in Virgo, it may not be easy, but please have low expectations for yourself and others.

When the Moon enters Libra at 5:42 PM EST, the energy will change significantly. How about turning this long, uneventful day into a delightful, spontaneous ‘date night’ or an evening with friends? Make the most of Wednesday evening.

 

SERIOUS MINDSCAPES

Thursday, February 25, 2016:

Thursday and Friday of this week are important days to be consciously aware of your habitual communication patterns and thought processes. It may feel as though you have a little dance going on inside your mind. This dance is playing out between the need to stabilize your thinking even as you are taking risks to explore outside the box of your standardized thinking.

Take the time to consider what began in November 2015. At that time, Mercury conjunct Saturn, beginning the current cycle between them. Now, as Mercury sextile Saturn, we are given an opportunity to explore changes that have come directly from a line of thought or communication that began in late November 2015. There is no action required (yet), there is simply an opportunity to see things with new eyes and to understand more fully the importance of where our thoughts and communications bring us.

Explore different ways to communicate what feels important. Take your communications and your mindscapes seriously, even as the sextile between Mercury and Uranus (exact on Friday) wants to tell a more exciting, unusual, and innovative story.

 

INNOVATIVE MINDSCAPES

Friday, February 26, 2016:

After Thursday’s sextile from Mercury to Saturn, on Friday, we have a sextile from Mercury to Uranus; both speak of opportunities, possibilities, and explorations for the mind.

If you are feeling mentally heavy or serious and you have a partner or friend that is exploring more unusual ways of thinking that are outside your comfort zone, pay attention. Certainly, it could be the other way around with you playing in an innovative, exciting space while your friend or partner is very seriously or conservatively inclined.

Right now, we have very different energies playing out in the arena of the mind. Oftentimes, it is easier to ‘see’ one side of this equation as coming from someone close to us, rather than the confusion that can happen when we try to hold both sides of the issue that are really each a part of us.

This could manifest in issues of study, conversations, or communications of all kinds. You may consider this as an opportunity to explore serious study opportunities… AH! This is the perfect time to begin a serious study of astrology!

Both Uranus and Saturn are honored in astrological study. The serious (Saturn) and the innovative and unusual (Uranus) are brought to the mind for study (Mercury).*

Allow space to pay attention to your thinking, your ideas, and your mental gymnastics. Enjoy the opportunities and the potential for quirky, yet serious thinking.

*Contact me for learning opportunities. 🙂

INTEGRITY, SACRIFICE, TRANSFORMATION

Saturday, February 27, 2016:

You may notice a considerable change in your emotional state as the Moon enters the quiet, secretive realm of Scorpio on Saturday at 6:27 AM EST. While the Moon is in Scorpio, we are aware of our deep emotions on a very personal level. Whatever we feel, we feel intensely. We are interested in what is beneath the words that are spoken.

With the Moon in Scorpio, we understand that knowledge is power and we know how to get to the bottom of things. We have no interest in conversations or interactions on a superficial level. We want to understand the depth and extent of our own power and what holds us back. The Scorpio Moon encourages intimacy and passion, deep passion.

Maintaining clarity regarding your own integrity is crucial. Manipulative tactics may offer themselves as a possibility, exposing a very immature side of Scorpio. Rise to the level of highest integrity. Remember, that the true symbol of Scorpio is the phoenix. The phoenix is a mythical bird of great longevity. When her life cycle is complete, the phoenix sacrifices its current self through fire and renews itself three days later.

This speaks to your need to sacrifice parts of yourself in order for deep and true transformation to occur. Consider what needs to be burned out of your own soul in order to reach the heights that you are being called to.

 

AN ETHEREAL MEETING: SUN AND NEPTUNE

Sunday, February 28, 2016:

Once each year, the Sun meets with Neptune (exact at 10:46 AM EST). This begins the annual cycle between them. The Sun brings warmth and light to areas of your imagination, inspiration, sensitivity, or confusion.

It is a good idea to pay attention to how you start this cycle, as it will lay the groundwork for your spiritual growth or your artistic endeavors throughout the year. If you are on a path of spiritual growth, take extra time in meditation on Sunday. If you are an artist of any kind, pay attention to what artistic endeavors you begin now.

If you feel lost in fog, or if you have a hard time understanding the difference between reality and fantasy, simply allow that confusion. Do not try to fight against it. Approach any difficulties with humor, deep compassion, and love.
