Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: July 3, 2017 through July 9, 2017

 

Two Brothers Illustration by Elenore Abbott

On Tuesday, Venus leaves Taurus behind to enter the busy realm of Gemini. She loved her time in stable, sweet Taurus and although she leaves with some regret, she immediately moves into busy activity and doesn’t look back.

We barely have time to adjust to that shift when Mercury steps out of the sensitive sign of Cancer to enter the dramatic, playful arena of Leo.

Sunday brings us to the Full Moon in Capricorn, illuminating the importance of family connection to serious effort and accomplishment.

With both Mars and the Sun opposing Pluto in these early days of summer, watch for intensity, power dynamics, and serious challenges. Watch as it plays out in the news and in our political system and in your own personal life.

Maintain stability, breathe, and offer kindness. Spend time determining your most powerful forms of self-care and embrace them fully!

ACCEPTANCE & HEALING

Monday, July 3, 2017:

How are you feeling after the challenges of the past weekend?

At 12:46 PM EDT, when the intense Scorpio Moon forms a supportive trine aspect to the tender Cancer Sun, you are able to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. You understand that difficulties are a necessary part of your path and that half the battle is acceptance.

Acknowledging the reality of your situation may be easier than expected as the Moon forms a lovely trine to Neptune at 5:16 PM EDT. Music or poetry will soothe you deeply this evening, as will a candlelight dinner with loved ones.

At 7:14 PM EDT, Venus forms a sextile aspect to Chiron, showing you the importance of slowing down and paying attention to a healing process that began in late January 2017. Take advantage of this soft moment as more intensity lies ahead. As always, remember kindness and self-care. Spread tolerance, decency, and benevolence in all directions.

 

SURPRISING REVELATIONS

Tuesday, July 4, 2017:

Tuesday carries with it a great deal of vitality and activity as the Scorpio Moon forms supportive aspects to powerful Pluto and action-oriented Mars. You will be amazed at how much you can accomplish by focusing your attention on necessary projects.

At 8:11 PM EDT, lovely Venus, the planet of love, values, and resources, enters inquisitive Gemini. She is not happy to leave Taurus where she has been since June 6th. Steadfast Taurus is her favorite place as she indulges in sensuality and comfort.

Now, as she enters active Gemini, she will consider her options regarding love and money.  She will be interested in exploring what is available without settling down. In Gemini, Venus is flirtatious, inquisitive, and restless.

A square aspect between mental Mercury and unconventional Uranus at 8:51 PM EDT colors the entire day and its influence is felt into Wednesday. Watch for sudden communications, surprising revelations, excitement, or anxiety. Think twice or count to 10 before speaking. Ask yourself: “Is it true, is it necessary, is it kind?”

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:35 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 1:08 AM EDT on 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 any significant future impact.

 

HONOR YOUR PATH

Wednesday, July 5, 2017:

Cinderella by Elenore Abbott via Wiki Commons

We can anticipate powerful shifting energy before Wednesday comes to a close.

When the day begins, the Moon has left the deep emotional space of Scorpio behind to enter Sagittarius, the sign of philosophical expansion and exploration.

At 8:19 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet representing your manner of thinking and communicating, leaves the inward sign of Cancer to leap into playful, boisterous, and expressive Leo. Your conversations will become more animated and dramatic over the coming days.

At 8:46 PM EDT, the affectionate Cancer Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to mystical Neptune. Following on the heels of this aspect, the Sun forms a challenging square aspect to idealistic Jupiter at 10:43 PM EDT. These two overlapping cycles, one involving dreams, imagination, and the loosening of boundaries (Sun and Neptune) and the other involving your higher philosophical understanding of this life (Sun and Jupiter) will be prominent in your experience moving through both Wednesday and Thursday.

The first aspect (Sun and Neptune) is a cycle of developing compassion and sensitivity, mystical dreams, and deep, devotional spirituality. This cycle began at the very beginning of March. Did you plant a seed at that time that now opens onto a smooth path ahead?

The second of these cycles (Sun and Jupiter) is a cycle expanding your higher philosophical understanding. This cycle began in late September of 2016 as you planted a seed of opportunity and deep understanding. How far has that seed grown? It is time to begin looking forward to the start of a new cycle and a new seed to be planted in September 2017.

Clearly, these two cycles are working together to bring awareness to your philosophical understanding and spiritual growth. Honor your path.

 

A NEW UNDERSTANDING

Thursday, July 6, 2017:

Thursday, you can expect to continue working with your own understanding and exploration of your path forward. We are all assimilating the cycles that were highly activated on Wednesday. Spend time on Thursday in the active contemplation of your philosophical and spiritual understanding of your place in the world. Write an essay on where you find yourself.

The Moon is in idealistic, expansive Sagittarius throughout the day. Sit down with friends and plan a trip. Open up a world map and consider what part of the world that you have never seen but would like to experience.

Allow the outside world to take care of itself, set your concerns and worries aside.

Seek out new experiences, pleasures, and those friends who expand your view and understanding. Is there a culture, a philosophical understanding, or a new way of thinking that calls your name? Search it out.

 

HARMONIOUS, EASY DIALOGUE

Friday, July 7, 2017:

As Mercury, the planet of communication and our thinking, moves quickly through creative, dramatic Leo, he forms a delightful sextile aspect to lovely Venus in talkative Gemini. This combination is a splendid way to start the day, encouraging easy, open dialogue and facilitating communications of all kinds.

A flowing trine aspect between the Sagittarius Moon and eccentric Uranus at 10:12 AM EDT brings stimulation and excitement to new ideas and the way in which you perceive the world around you.

At 1:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters prudent Capricorn shifting the mood of the day dramatically. Just when the week is about to end, you are likely to feel more ambitious, responsible, and committed to your work. You may accomplish more on Friday afternoon at your job than you did in the previous 4 ½ days. Anticipate bringing a seriously mature focus to the weekend ahead. You may indeed be happy to bring work home.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:12 AM EDT until she entries Capricorn at 1:45 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 any significant future impact.

WATCH FOR EXCESS/ HOLD STEADY

Saturday, July 8, 2017:

Saturday may not hold a lot of excitement but it will also hold very little anxiety or stress. It will be a great day for quiet contemplation, time alone, or pushing toward accomplishments and achievements.

Things are very quiet astrologically until 6:05 PM EDT when the serious Capricorn Moon forms a curiosity driven sextile aspect to elusive Neptune. Go ahead and open a bottle of wine and settle in for a quiet evening.

At 6:45 PM EDT, the Moon forms a square aspect to expansive Jupiter, so be sure to put away that bottle of wine before you empty it on your own! Keep watch for excess throughout the evening.

The Full Capricorn Moon is exact shortly after midnight (technically, on Sunday in Eastern Time). Be aware, this is an extremely powerful and uncomfortable Full Moon, not the night for excitement and parties. Tap into your inner empowerment with kindness and hold steady.

 

POWERFUL CAPRICORN FULL MOON/HOLD STEADY

Sunday, July 9, 2017:

The authoritative Capricorn Full Moon is exact in the early moments of Sunday (12:07 AM EDT). The Full Moon is the passionate and energetic peak of each month. Do not under estimate the intensity of this particular Full Moon!

Pluto, Mars, and Uranus are all directly involved as she reaches full intensification. Watch the outer world and anticipate feelings of powerlessness in the face of political realities.

Remember, that it is your responsibility to accept the truth of your situation and work to express kindness and support toward others with an open, generous heart.

If you have planets between 16 and 19 degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), pay close attention to your relationship to power, intensification, and anger in relationships.

If you feel direct internal pressure, please spend time alone. Learn to understand your triggers and practice kindness to yourself and others.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: July 18, 2016 through July 24, 2016

I will begin by saying this looks like a fairly simple week. Other than the transits of the Moon and the Capricorn Full Moon on Tuesday the 19th, we have simple, flowing trine aspects from Mercury to Saturn on Tuesday and from Venus to Saturn on Wednesday. On Friday, the Sun enters the hot, dramatic sign of Leo!

I hope you are all enjoying vacations and hot summer days! I know I am!

I am heading off for a long weekend on a road trip to the coast of Maine. And have lots to do to get ready!

So again, I’m going to keep the post simple and move right into the Dailies.

 

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.

 

FOCUS ON WORK & EFFORT

Monday, July 18, 2016:

I know we all have vacation and summer sun on our minds but this Monday is best suited for ambitious effort and work. If you are heading to the office, you will likely find your work ethic strong and should be able to get a lot accomplished. The ability to remain focused and disciplined is powerful.

At 1:36 PM EDT, the pragmatic Capricorn Moon may surprise itself when an opportunity is presented that can only be managed through listening to your intuition. Don’t fight against it; as the Capricorn Moon sextile Neptune your imagination and intuition may open doors to support a serious or ambitious project

At 9:25 PM EDT, the Moon conjunct Pluto refocuses us on maintaining a more stable approach and firmer control.

 

CAPRICORN FULL MOON: STABILIZE

Tuesday, July 19, 2016:

Tuesday begins with mental Mercury forming a trine aspect to serious Saturn. This signifies the need for clear, stable thinking. Our thinking is serious and our ability to learn or express thoughts and ideas is steadfast.

In late November 2015, when these two planets began their current cycle, we began a thought process that came into full view approximately a month ago. Now, with the trine aspect between them, it is time to release that energy into the world; perhaps, there is a conversation that must be had or a story that needs to be written.

Contemplate the timeframe and allow what needs to occur to flow easily. Over the coming months, the issue will be released and a new cycle of thought development will begin in November of 2016.

At 1:06 PM EDT, the realistic Capricorn Moon forms a challenging square to unpredictable Uranus. This may feel a bit emotionally unnerving. Even as our intellectual process feels solid, our emotions could take an unusual turn by afternoon.

The Capricorn Full Moon is exact at 6:57 PM EDT. This brings the lunar cycle that began on July 4th into full expression. If, at that time, you planted a seed in hopes of creating ‘family’, now you see the full results and the stability of what is developing.

At 11:11 PM EDT, the Moon enters rebellious Aquarius which will reverberate into progressive attitudes and unusual behaviors over the next few days.

 

SHINE ON – STEP FORWARD

Wednesday, July 20, 2016:

Following the stabilization of your  thought process on Tuesday (Mercury trine Saturn), Wednesday offers a similar sense of flow. Between relationship and beauty oriented Venus to determined Saturn, this aspect brings stabilization and sweet delight to the area of relationship and possibly, money (Venus trine Saturn).

A great day to explore your most personal beliefs around finances, to create art, or to simply go out to dinner and hold the hand of your dearest loved one. Your values feel strong and unshakable.

This cycle began in early January with a structuring and stabilization of values, came to its full potential the first week of June, and now flows easily as we release the energy into the world.

The quirky Aquarius Moon encourages us to stay emotionally detached from this process, enabling stabilization to occur without deep emotional turmoil.  Shine your light and step forward with easy.

 

ALLOW FOR SPACE AND FREEDOM

Thursday, July 21, 2016:

With the domestic Moon in open-minded Aquarius, we may have an unusual approach to our home and our loved ones on Thursday. The Moon is happiest in an emotional Water Sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) or even a grounded Earth Sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn).  Aquarius is progressive, innovative, and objective.

Emotions don’t want to be objective, they want to flow like a river and move easily through empathy, mysteries, and tenderness. This is not a day to expect yourself or others to connect emotionally. Give yourself and others space and freedom.

We will all function more easily if we engage in unconventional, innovative projects that express humanitarian concerns rather than personal concerns.

At 6:54 PM EDT, when the Moon sextile defiant Uranus you may receive unexpected news or unusual ideas may seem to come out of nowhere.

At 9:56 PM EDT, the Moon square assertive Mars could spark an argument or internal agitation. It will be best to spend that period of time alone and get to sleep early. It is only a Moon transit, they do not last very long. As long as you succeed in not engaging the energy in the moment it will pass without due impact.

 

PLAY AND DREAM

Friday, July 22, 2016:

By the time we wake up on Friday morning, the Sun will have entered Leo (5:30 AM EDT)! Now, we move into the heat of summer, the height of the Sun’s power. When we think of Leo, we often think of drama, exuberance, and full expression of personality. We may think of Leo’s generosity, playfulness, or his arrogance and grandiosity. Often times, we forget the dignified laziness of the big cats. With the Leo Sun high above, we understand the desire to simply play or sleep. For the coming month, we will all want to vacation, lay in the sun, sleep, and play.

This is not the best time for most of us to be productive, so go ahead, and allow yourself to play.

The Moon enters idealistic Pisces in the wee hours of Friday morning, adding dreamy imagination to our desired play. Allow play and light-hearted joy to permeate the day. Enjoy it to the hilt.

A DAY OF SENSITIVITY

Saturday, July 23, 2016:

You may want to get up early on Saturday morning to engage the brief period of time that the sensitive Pisces Moon sextile the hidden forces of Pluto (exact at 8:08 AM EDT). This brings us face-to-face with an opportunity to deeply engage our deepest shadow side, bringing it to a place of healing and purification.  Spend a few hours in meditation or simply offer your deep wounds to the healing light of inspiration and self-compassion.

With an opposition from the illusory Pisces Moon to expansive Jupiter at 4:25PM EDT, arrange the evening to accommodate emotional sensitivity and optimistic idealism.  Watch any tendencies to drink, drug, or dream more than is healthy for your personal nature.

When you encounter others, keep in mind that they are all in an overly sensitive state of heart and mind. Offer compassion and kindness liberally. Take good care of your heart and the hearts of those around you.

 

BRIGHT LIGHT

Sunday, July 24, 2016:

Sunday morning you will be ready to shake off all the sensitivity and dreaminess you have been embroiled in over the past few days. At 8:32 AM EDT, the Moon leaves her illusions (Pisces) behind as she embraces dynamic impulsiveness (Aries).  You may not have done much on Saturday and you are ready to make up for it by asserting your personal, possibly flamboyant desires on Sunday.

At 12:17 PM EDT, the courageous Aries Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to the expressive Leo Sun.  This bears witness to a day made for full expression, no holds barred.

You will have more bravery and ability to fully express parts of yourself that you often keep under tight wraps. Sing, dance, and speak the words that need to be spoken.

Forget that conservative outfit you may have been comfortable in on Saturday, Sunday you want to show yourself as your most enthusiastic, dynamic, and impulsive self.  Dress accordingly. Allow yourself to be seen in your brightest light.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: June 29, 2015 through July 5, 2015

World at a Glace by Janice Montecalvo of Providence, RI

World at a Glace by Janice Montecalvo of Providence, RI

We can look forward to an interesting week ahead! Clearly, there are different things impacting all of our individual charts. However, what we are looking at through these astrology transits is the overall environment we all share.

Regardless of what we are encountering as individuals, we all live in the same environment and are being impacted by that environment. This week appears to provide a relatively smooth ride with powerful opportunities presented in the latter half of the week.

The week starts with the Moon in Sagittarius and the excitement of Venus connecting to the Fire Trine between Jupiter and Uranus. This Fire Trine and its implications point to the necessity of embracing and bringing forth the excitement and possibilities of the future.

On Monday, Venus trine Uranus allowing us see how far we have come in developing new values, relationships, and resources. We see our world from a very different perspective then we did four months ago. On Wednesday, Venus will conjunct with Jupiter, keeping the excitement or anxiety alive between Uranus and Jupiter (who came to an exact trine last week).

Our ability to see necessary change is tremendous! Our values and beliefs are undergoing a tremendous upheaval and renewal.

When any two planets make contact, I like to think about the entire cycle between them. Consider the conjunction between the Sun and the Moon. The New Moon is in the sky; it is the beginning of the Lunar cycle.

The cycle between Venus and Uranus (which began in early March) is a cycle of intensification and sudden change of our values. New awareness is brought suddenly to our deeply held values.

In the USA, I see this mirrored in the racial situations and ongoing conversation regarding race and society. I think white people are finally beginning to wake up to the deeply rooted white supremacy we have all been raised in. A huge internal change is demanded from society. It is time to wake up!

Uranus always brings us forward into a space of individuality and the understanding of human progress. I see a tremendous opportunity for all of us to be looking with renewed clarity at difficult hidden issues. The United States’ institutional racism is the obvious example that we have tried to sweep under the carpet for so long. #blacklivesmatter

I see the transformation that has been set in motion over the last few years (related to the Uranus Pluto square). This aspect brings forth the demand that we grow and change in ways that may not be comfortable (an understatement) but are immensely necessary for growth.

The necessity to push forward is an individual process as well as a collective process. We each need to look at our own culpability on the issue of racism and white privilege. Clearly, we have allowed ourselves to remain ignorant and silent for too long.

On to the dailies!

 

 

MOVE TOWARD EXCITEMENT AND CHANGE

Monday, June 29, 2015:

The Moon is in freedom loving Sagittarius on Monday encouraging us to broaden our perspective and imagine what lies outside any boxes we may feel stuck in.

However, the most important astrological news on Monday is the trine aspect between Venus and Uranus.

This cycle began in early March and the planets now reach 120 degrees between them. This is a free flow of energy as we see the path forward clearly.

Now is the time to push steadily in the direction we want to see ourselves move in. Our push forward will result in a release of energy and a full expression of the cycle in late November.

This cycle brings us face-to-face with a new way of seeing our most intimate relationships, our money and resources, and our most significant personal values.

Pay close attention to anything surprising or unusual that crosses your path on Monday. Don’t shy away from what is offered.

Keep your eyes and your heart open to anything that brings a spark of excitement even if some anxiety resides within that excitement.

 

HAVE DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS

Tuesday, June 30, 2015:

There are days and sometimes weeks where there is simply so much excitement and/or potential anxiety that it is hard to maintain focus on what we believe we need to accomplish. This may be one of those days and, perhaps, one of those weeks!

On Tuesday, the Moon is in Sagittarius continuing our push toward expansive awareness and our willingness to be more open than usual about our opinions and perspectives.

It may be an effort, but this would be a good time listen deeply to the opinions of others. It may not be an easy thing to do with our own opinions feeling so very important. Try to understand where others are coming from; share your own ideas without demanding that others agree with you.

The Moon is VOC* following a trine to Jupiter at 2:18 PM EDT. Try to have no high expectations of the late afternoon.

It’s a fine evening for casual connections with like-minded others. Pay attention to the conversations around you. Don’t get stuck with boring, uninspiring, or unchallenging topics. Go ahead and bring up the more difficult conversations; we all need to have them. #blacklivesmatter

FULL MOON: CELEBRATE LOVE, HOPE, VISION

Wednesday, July 1, 2015:

Wednesday is likely to be a busy day! Long before we awake, Venus conjuncts Jupiter beginning a new cycle of expanding love!

We begin anew to bring heart, love, and beauty to our deepest beliefs. The current astrological cycles suggest powerful growth of awareness and understanding regarding our deep-seated beliefs and personal values.

Last week, Jupiter trine Uranus, while this Monday, Venus trine Uranus, and then today, Venus is conjunct Jupiter.  These three planets are working together to wake us up to the importance of bringing love to its proper position at the top of our personal values. They are attempting to open our hearts in ways we were unable to in the past. Let us each take this opportunity to wake ourselves up and pay attention to the real issues at hand!

At 5:09 PM EDT, the Sun trine Neptune, this cycle began at the end of February with the development of a dream. How have you moved that dream toward fulfillment?

There is a free-flow of energy bringing you forward now. Perhaps the dream feels too good to be true. If you feel you have stars in your eyes, allow them to remain in place for a few days. Enjoy the softer view of the world that Neptune provides, allow yourself the potential of renewed hope. #Bernie #blacklivesmatter

At 10:19 PM EDT, we reach the Full Moon in Capricorn. At this time, we see the culmination of what began at the New Moon on June 16th.

This Full Moon has a serious edge. Yes, we may want to celebrate and enjoy the perspective of hope, but we know how much is at stake. Gather with others in meditation for the planet and the evolution of our species! Celebrate hope and expansive vision.

 

OPEN YOUR MIND

Thursday, July 2, 2015:

On Thursday, Mercury gets in on the action of unexpected expansion and beauty! What a powerful week this is! Remember, Mercury is the planet of the mind, our thought processes, our communication skills, and, generally, what we think about.

Over the next few days, Mercury forms sextile aspects to all three of the planets that have been active this week: Uranus, Jupiter, and Venus. The sextile aspect brings possibilities and opportunities. Keep your eyes open for what it’s offered.

This is not the week to withhold yourself. This is a week to allow your mind to get swept into possibilities and to go ahead and take risks with your thinking and your communications.

On Thursday, with the Moon still in Capricorn, there is a clear opportunity to think thoughts you have never thought before! Allow your mind to go in directions that are unexpected. Allow yourself to be open to ideas that you may have spent your whole life resisting. This is no time for resistance.

This is a time to set aside your opinions, set aside the old ways you were raised with, and open to what is now possible in this new post Uranus square Pluto world!

Even with this lovely aspect, we cannot expect everyone to open their eyes to a new way of thinking. This is an opportunity, not a requirement.

With the Capricorn Moon making tough aspects to both Uranus and Pluto, we can anticipate those who will hold hard to their outdated and unfriendly positions. Don’t let that stop you from your mission of expansion and expressing love.

 

SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Friday, July 3 , 2015:

Friday begins with a very brief VOC*Moon between 6:37 AM EDT and 8:21 AM EDT when the Moon enters Aquarius. The Moon in Aquarius ushers us into the July 4th weekend with a focus on the expansion of our humanitarian sensibilities. Whatever is worthy of celebration must take on the inclusion of everyone left on the sidelines in the past.

We are expanding, we are opening our eyes, we are ready to move forward… and we are deeply idealistic. It is always a bit of a trick to work toward our dreams and values with deep hope while remaining realistic.

The great thing about the entire weekend, and Friday in particular, is the ability we have to speak our truth. We see what needs to be said, we are able to say it, and others are more apt to hear at this time than usual. We are all open to seeing, and, possibly, embracing a new perspective.

Show others a perspective of the world and this life that focuses on love and service to our fellow humans on this tiny blue planet. Commit to speaking your truth and listening to the truth of others. Spread kindness and acceptance of the diversity of all humans.

CELEBRATE LIFE

Saturday, July 4, 2015:

It is wonderful to encounter a holiday falling on a Saturday that holds such a lovely astrological environment.

The Moon is in Aquarius adding her energy to the interactions with Uranus and Jupiter. We continue enlarging our view of our fellow humans and life in general.

Again, we have a weekend desperately calling to be enjoyed. Remember how short summer is (at least here in Vermont, the home state of Bernie Sanders!)

Make plans, join friends, and celebrate your life! The best plans for this Saturday will include many casual friends. More intimate friends or family connections may not be as satisfying as like-minded others.

Spend time with those who believe as you believe, those you can interact with in stimulating intellectual conversations. Enjoy the day, enjoy others, add your voice to the conversation!

 

ENJOY AND ALLOW

Sunday, July 5, 2015:

I love to see a Sunday morning with a VOC* Moon.   This Sunday that VOC* Moon only lasts from 8:31 AM EDT until the Moon enters Pisces at 10:23 AM EDT. This gives us a few hours to sit over breakfast and coffee with our loved ones. Do not rush into the day.

As the week comes to an end, we feel the intensity of the following week’s aspects coming into focus. We will be looking again into some of the darker corners of our own lives and of humanity’s path.

Mercury sextiles Venus at 4:18 AM EDT continuing to remind us that this is a time to speak words of love and kindness. Sextile aspects (60degrees) offer us opportunities. We do not need to take these opportunities; they can easily be resisted. Don’t resist! If you have words of kindness or love to speak, take the opportunity!

Plan for Sunday to be a low-key day. Walk in the woods, listen to music, go to the theater, or just allow yourself to be lost in your own imagination.

If you are interacting with others, forgo any great exertion of energy or high expectations. Don’t try to control the day; simply allow it to carry you along.

__________________________________________________________
This week: The VOC* Moon!

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. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Tuesday, June 30, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Sagittarius) following a trine to Jupiter at 2:18 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn on Wednesday morning July 1, 2015 at 5:10 AM EDT.

Friday, July 3, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Capricorn) following a sextile to Saturn at 6:37 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:21 AM EDT.

Sunday, July 5, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Aquarius) following a square to Saturn at 8:31 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 10:23 AM EDT.

__________________________________________________________
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Are your circumstances other than what you expected?

We can meet for an individual consultations (Burlington, Vermont), by telephone, or on SKYPE!

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!

It is my goal to empower you in the exploration of the past, present and future of your life.

Let's talk. There is so much to learn and understand.
