Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 6, 2017 through March 12, 2017

Take heart!! At 7:33 PM EST on Thursday, Mars, the planet of war and strife, leaves aggressive Aries behind to enter stabilizing Taurus. You can expect some release of the deep, intense anxiety we have been embroiled in for the past few months.

It is true that Mars would far rather remain in Aries; he does not look forward to his time in Taurus. However, Mars can bring aggression and warlike behavior when in Aries; when he moves into Taurus, he has no choice but to settle down and behave more calmly.

I give this one a thumbs-up.

 

 

HEART CENTERED COMMUNICATION

Monday, March 6, 2017:

Following the weekend’s focus on communications and thinking processes, Monday morning when the Moon enters domestic Cancer at 7:54 AM EST, your focus shifts dramatically. You can anticipate a desire for comfort, affection, and sentimentality to easily override your intellectual process. With the Moon in moody and sometimes defensive Cancer, pay attention to your own sensitivity and the possible oversensitivity of others.

At 7:28 PM EST, when the Sun conjoins with mental Mercury in compassionate Pisces, your sensitivity does not diminish in the least but you are able to communicate this deep sensitivity with a clear voice. Bring compassion and clarity to heart-to-heart conversations.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:22 AM EST until it enters Cancer at 7:54 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

PLEASANT MORNING – CRABBY AFTERNOON

Tuesday, March 7, 2017:

Tuesday begins easily enough. You may carry over a deep level of compassion and kindness from Monday as the protective Cancer Moon makes lovely aspects to empathetic Neptune, the all-powerful Sun, and perceptive Mercury.

Enjoy the morning; it is the best part of day. Whatever you need to accomplish, get it done early.

From the mid-afternoon through bedtime, the deeply sensitive Cancer Moon forms rough aspects to destructive Pluto, idealistic Jupiter, and defiant Uranus. Don’t be surprised at your own moodiness and the plain crabbiness of others!

Watch your defensiveness and your tendency to seek an escape at the slightest provocation.

Shortly after midnight, your mind will open to powerful opportunities. Expect to encounter these in your dreams. Keep your journal by your bedside to jot down any helpful notes when you wake up on Wednesday morning.

 

 

Children Running from a Thunderstorm by Konstantin Makovsky via Wiki CommonsEXPLORING POSSIBILITIES

Wednesday, March 8, 2017:

Wednesday brings a sense of potential with a lovely sextile aspect between mental Mercury (currently in imaginative Pisces) and powerful Pluto. This brings us to the first step in a cycle of empowerment that began on January 29, 2017. The empowerment being developed throughout this cycle is one of mental clarity or growth.  Over the course of this (approximately one year) cycle your thinking or ability to communicate is profoundly deepened. Now is the time to explore what direction this learning will take you.

For example, perhaps at the end of January you decided to embark on a writing project (or perhaps a learning or a communication project), now you begin to explore different approaches or methods that will bring that project forward. It is not yet time to take an active step forward, but a time to think about and explore those next steps.

The time for actual motion forward will come in about two weeks.

At 9:59 AM EST, with the inward Cancer Moon squaring determined Mars, you may feel aggravated and even a bit aggressive. This will pass quickly when the Moon enters vital Leo at 11:46 AM EST. With the sensitivity of Cancer left behind, you can move into a playful, self-expressive afternoon. Get together with friends or spend time with children. Allow your inner child to play and show her truly openhearted generosity.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:59 AM EST until she enters Leo at 11:46 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

A TIME OF PREPARATION & PATIENCE

Thursday, March 9, 2017:

Thursday is almost like a mirror to Wednesday. You are once again offered the opportunity to consider, without needing to move too quickly, what will most deeply empower your ability to make a difference in the world. What path will empower the development of your gifts to the world? You are asked now to explore what you need to do over the coming weeks that will enable you to make a difference to those around you.

Again, do not take any major steps forward. Explore possibilities and consider the actions you will take over the coming months. This is a time of preparation.

At 7:33 PM EST, Mars leaves his favorite sign of Aries behind and enters the calm, stable pastures of Taurus. Mars is not delighted with this move. He is happy in his home sign of aggressive, angry Aries. However, we need this stability now.

While Mars is in Taurus (until April 23rd), we will learn patience and begin the process of planning our garden. Spring is upon us. Mars in Taurus insists that we stabilize, develop patience and steadfast devotion to our Mother Earth

 

 

PLAYFULNESS TURNS TO PRACTICAL CONCERNS

Friday, March 10, 2017:

The playful Leo Moon is expansive, excited, and steady Friday morning as she engages in delightful conversations with Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn. The afternoon settles down into simplicity as we wait for the Moon’s entry into Virgo at 5:07 PM EST. This shift leads us into a weekend of productivity and efficiency.

It is unlikely to be a terribly exciting weekend but should be highly productive with plenty of opportunities to express kindness along with spring cleaning projects. When the efficient Virgo Moon trine determined Mars at 6:22 PM EDT, jump right on those practical projects. You have amazing energy into the evening to get things done.

At 8:34 PM EST, as Mercury conjoins with Chiron, your communications can bring deep healing to yourself or others. Maintain focus on practical matters, sensitivity, being of service to others, and simple kindness.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:05 PM EST until she enters Virgo at 5:07 EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

HELP OTHERS WITH PRACTICALITY AND SIMPLICITY

Saturday, March 11, 2017:

Any projects that you began on Friday evening will keep you occupied throughout Saturday. This is a weekend for kindness, helping others, and accomplishing organizational projects, not a weekend for excitement and dramatic activities. Detailed work is highlighted with this industrious Virgo Moon.

At 3:07 PM EST, when the Moon opposes elusive Neptune, you may feel a bit confused, dreamy, or inspired to take on a more imaginative or artistic project. If you feel tired, take a nap.

Saturday is simply not a high-energy day but a day of steady, meticulous movement forward. Virgo always seeks to be of service so helping others will come easily and feel satisfying on a deep level. However, be sure you are clear on the difference between being helpful and putting yourself in the position of being a martyr. Helping does not mean rescuing someone who holds a victim role.  Be clear of this distinction and enjoy this simple day of open awareness and generous kindness.

 

 

VIRGO FULL MOON – WORK EQUALS MASTERY

Sunday, March 12, 2017:

You may feel as if you were waking up on the wrong side of the bed on Sunday morning. At 8:10 AM EDT, (time changed while you slept!) Mercury forms a square aspect to serious, authoritative Saturn. With Mercury in dreamy Pisces, your mind longs to enter flights of fancy unrestrained by reality. However there is a strong need to step into a more serious thought process.

Did you begin a new study or a new way of thinking in late November 2016? Now, the Universe is pushing you to move forward in a mature responsible way. This is no time for mysticism or lack of clear thinking. Take action on something real, tangible, and solid.

At 10:54AM EDT, the Full Moon occurs at 22 degrees Virgo. Open yourself to a deep level of service. Where can you help others?

With the Full Moon forming challenging aspects to hard working Saturn and thoughtful Mercury (both in passive Pisces), you must understand how hard work and sustained effort is necessary to the development of mastery in your life.

This is a day to look clearly at the places you must put in long term and sustained effort. Remember, that this type of effort builds not only mastery but also self-respect and authority. Support others in building self-respect.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:37 PM EST until she enters Libra at 1:29 AM EDT on Monday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

__________________________________________________________
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transits 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.

A BIT VAGUE AND A LITTLE EDGY

Monday, January 9, 2017:

You may begin the week feeling as though your head in the clouds as the Gemini Moon forms a square aspect with Neptune, the planet of bewilderment and confusion. It is best not to make firm decisions. Your mind may feel very busy but I wouldn’t trust its accuracy.

Allow yourself to be forgetful and vague; better yet, you can use this as an opportunity to focus your attention on poetry and music.

This evening watch your tongue and don’t take it personally if others are a bit cranky and out of sorts. The Gemini Moon forms a square aspect to Mars at 7:39 PM EST. Physical exercise may help move this energy or if you trust yourself and the other person involved, go ahead and engage in edgy, friendly banter. Make sure the friendly side stays firmly in mind. There is much to be said, watch the edge in your voice and make sure you are not misunderstood.

 

 

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED

Tuesday, January 10, 2017:

Tuesday sets the tone for the rest of the week. Anticipate feeling the need to reach for personal and possibly collective freedom. If you are restricted or restrained in some area of your life, you may now lose your ability to contain the demand for complete and utter change.

This is a highly revolutionary impulse. Look for breakthroughs and breakdowns. If you notice things falling apart, don’t try to control or pull them together again. Reach to the future; discover what can be created out of the remnants of what is left after the lightning strikes.

By looking at the cycle between the Sun and Uranus, we are brought back to early April of 2016. What began (what seed did you plant) at that time that was unusual or surprising to you on a personal level? By mid-October, it was crystal clear what that seed had grown into.

Now, it is time to show the truth to others and prepare for the next cycle to begin in mid-April, 2017. Allow yourself to see the future.

After a brief VOC*, the Moon enters Cancer at 5:40 PM EST. Regardless of the shakeup that may have occurred during the day, the evening is best spent quietly at home engaging in bonding behaviors with your loved ones; at the very least, cuddle with your cat. 😉

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:39 PM EST until she enters Cancer at 5:48 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

POWER AND EXPANSION

Wednesday, January 11, 2017:

Wednesday morning may bring complications. At 2:14 AM EST, Mars, the planet of assertiveness and aggression, forms a sextile aspect to Pluto, the planet of destruction or empowerment.

This offers an opportunity to consider, with curiosity, issues regarding your use of power in situations where you are viewed as a mystic or an authority. The cycle of Mars and Pluto is one of great power or, possibly, great destruction.  Here, we have the power of direct action engaging with the power of transformation.

In October of 2016, (notice how that span of time also came up in Tuesday’s report, these situations are no doubt connected), these two came together planting a seed of determination in creating the powerful life that calls you fourth. Your explorations in this regard will lead you to take appropriate action in late February of 2017.

The Cancer Moon brings a mixed bag of emotional ups and downs throughout the day. At 11:42 PM EST, the Sun squares joyful, expansive Jupiter asking you to question where you see your life expanding. Consider where you felt optimistic or even enthusiastic in late September 2016. It is time now to push forward, finding new directions to enlarge that optimism for the future.

 

 

CANCER FULL MOON; ENGAGE LOVE

Thursday, January 12, 2017:

The nurturing Cancer Moon reaches the Full phase of her cycle at 6:34 AM EST. This is a very powerful Full Moon as she is positioned in a Full Grand Cross (a highly active and potentially stressful configuration) with Pluto, Uranus, and Jupiter.

Move mindfully through this day. Patience and kindness are required. This is not a day for rash decisions or impulsive actions.

Use the intensity of this powerful day with caution, cooperation, and deliberate thought. This is not a day to take any situations or circumstances lightly.

At 9:03 AM EST, Mercury, the planet that represents the way we think and perceive the world, leaves Sagittarius behind to enter Capricorn where he will remain until February 7th. During this time, you will be able to base your plans and decisions on a more practical understanding of your options.

It is probably best not to trust this practicality for another day or two as a conjunction between lovely Venus and delusional Neptune occurs at 4:53 PM EST. It is difficult to be practical when the heart is fully engaged in deep sensitivity and compassion.

At 7:08 PM EST, the Moon enters demonstrative Leo allowing playful energy to emerge. Worked with properly, you can enjoy an evening of playful sensitivity and engagement.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:34 AM EST until she enters Leo at 7:08 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

REST – PLAY

Friday, January 13, 2017:

Friday offers a lovely day of rest and play. There are absolutely no major aspects to any planets, even the Leo Moon travels lazily through the heavens on Friday.

During a day with no aspects, the only thing you must consider is the energy the Moon provides. With the Moon in delightful and flashy Leo, you are given permission to express yourself authentically and appreciate others. This is a date to show up and allow yourself to be admired, even as you admire the authentic expression of those you encounter. We all want appreciation and recognition. For Friday, seek opportunities to offer that to others and to accept it for yourself.

Enjoy a lovely night. This is a great evening to go into the world to engage in dramatic and creative activities. Go to the theater, go out dancing, join with friends in any and all playful activities. Release stress through play.

PLAY – REST

Saturday, January 14, 2017:

Saturday offers you a morning with more delightful energy for connections and playful interactions. Get up early and go out for brunch with friends. The delightful Leo Moon makes lovely aspects with exciting Uranus, expansive Jupiter, and stabilizing Saturn throughout the morning. Following her positive contact with mature Saturn at 10:17 AM EST, the generous Leo Moon is VOC* until she enters Virgo at 10:53 PM EST.

This is not a great day to go shopping, accomplish projects, or make plans. It is best utilized for rest and laid back, easy socializing.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:17 AM EST until she enters for go at 10:53 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT TURNS TO FLOW

Sunday, January 15, 2017:

On Sunday, you can expect to wake to a day that initially feels practical and grounded. You sense that you can accomplish a great deal of efficient tasks and projects. Don’t delay! Get started on those tasks and projects as early as possible.

At 5:08 PM EST, when the detail oriented Virgo Moon opposes elusive Neptune all practicality goes out the window as you are faced with confusion and vague discomfort. Don’t fight against it, allow yourself to go with the flow. Confusion can become inspirational whimsy. Vague discomfort can be transformed into empathy and sensitivity.

At 10:58 PM EST, the Moon opposes lovely Venus in Pisces allowing you to rest into beauty, sensitivity, and love. If you’re with a partner, engage in your favorite bonding behaviors. If you are alone, draw yourself a bubble bath and allow yourself to enter a space of transcendence and gentle beauty.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: December 12, 2016 through December 18, 2016

This week begins with a bang as the Sagittarius Sun trine Uranus offering surprising revelations, innovations, and excitement.  The periods of time that the Moon is VOC are far shorter this week! What a blessing and relief!

On Tuesday, there’s a Full Moon in Gemini which brings clarity on what began at the Sagittarius New Moon two weeks ago.

If you have anything that you want to accomplish before Mercury turns retrograde, get it done as early this week as possible.

Mercury turns retrograde in the early morning hours of Monday, December 19th (at 15° Capricorn) and will remain in retrograde motion until January 8th. Keep in mind the higher purpose of Mercury retrograde is to get caught up on all projects and processes that have been left to gather dust. These are powerful periods of time for accomplishment as long as you do not move into new terrain.

EXCITEMENT

Monday, December 12, 2016:

Monday begins with a flowing trine aspect between the Sagittarius Sun and Uranus (in Aries). This is the high point of the week and the intensity will remain with us throughout Monday and Tuesday.

The full cycle of Uranus and the Sun began in early April of 2016. Did something surprising begin in your life at that time that was exciting or possibly stressful? This is a cycle of intensification and can be experienced as anxiety or excitement, depending on your relationship to Uranus and where the dance began in your personal chart.

What began in April was fully illuminated in mid-October and is now flowing with excitement and anticipation into your life.

In early January, there will be an adjustment to make but for now, enjoy the flow of anticipation that is moving you forward in a surprising new and exciting direction.

At 7:42 AM EST, the Moon enters Gemini, encouraging you to speak your mind, share your ideas and curiosity. This will be a great evening to bring a friend (or a group of friends) to dinner as the Moon forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to Venus at 5:23 PM EST. This will be a delightful evening for friendship and loving connection.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Gemini at 7:42 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

EXPANSION

Tuesday, December 13, 2016:

Tuesday brings with it the illuminated Full Moon at 22° Gemini. If it is a clear night go out and stand under that bright light, absorb its full light. Consider the seed that you planted at the Sagittarius New Moon on Tuesday, November 29th. What has grown from that beginning? The conversational Gemini Full Moon encourages us to take full responsibility for our thinking and our communications.

At 2:04 PM EST, when the Moon opposes authoritative Saturn we can look at any communication issues we are having from a perspective of rationality and realism. You are unlikely to get bogged down in restrictive or depressive thinking. The Sun is not only in higher-minded Sagittarius, but also forms a flowing trine aspect to expansive Jupiter, and a sextile aspect (representing opportunities) to eccentric Uranus at 4:18 PM EST.  Expect surprises that will open your mind and thinking in unusual, expansive ways.

The Full Moon is exact at 7:06 PM EST at 22° Gemini. This is another evening to spend with gatherings of friends sharing ideas and open curious communications.

RADIATE LOVE

Wednesday, December 14, 2016:

Unless you begin your day very early, by the time you get going the Moon will be in Cancer (entering at 7:09 AM EST). Your need for comfort, healing, and nurturing may be more pronounced then usual. You will also be more inclined to offer these warm gifts of kindness to your loved ones.

This is a day when most of us would prefer to stay home with our families and those we love most dearly. Remember this as you go about your day. Offer an extra dose of kindness to folks you meet in the course of your everyday activities. We all long to be seen and loved; practice moving love into your heart and out through your eyes to radiate that love and kindness to others.

At 10:17 PM EST, the Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to dreamy Neptune. Light the candles, open up the massage table, and bring yourself and others to a space of soft radiant dreams.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:57 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 7:09 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

A HUMAN REACTION

Thursday, December 15, 2016:

Thursday’s sensitive Cancer Moon encounters anxiety and power dynamics early in the day as the Mood opposes Pluto at 9:38 AM EST. Do you feel “under the thumb” of someone else’s agenda? Are you holding someone else under your thumb?  Pay attention to where unequal power dynamics exist between yourself and others. These issues will most likely show up in family or domestic relationships.

Consider where clear personal boundaries could support your health and the ultimate health of your relationships.

The anxiety from the morning extends into the afternoon as the Moon forms a square aspect to wild Uranus at 4:36 PM EST. Keep yourself on the move. Give anxiety and overwhelm a physical outlet. Go for a walk, go for a run, allow energy to move through you. These are simple Moon transits that will pass quickly as long as you don’t get caught up in unnecessary, dramatic reactions. Allow aggravations and difficulties to roll on by; do not engage with them by fanning the flames.

It is so easy to tell ourselves not to engage with things that trigger us; it is not easy to do. It is so easy to fly off the handle and wonder later how it happened. In these instances, show yourself the deepest level of compassion. What a human reaction! Forgive yourself and others with love and kindness.

When the Moon becomes a VOC* at 4:36 PM EST allow yourself to rest. Keep your evening calm and quiet.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:36 PM EST until she enters Leo on Friday at 8:14 AM PST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

REGAL STRENGTH

Friday, December 16, 2016:

The Moon enters playful Leo at 8:14 AM EST. Following Thursday’s emotional roller coaster you may feel a bit tentative about reaching out for the pleasure of Leo energy. There is no need to hurry.

As long as you did not get pulled too strongly into the turmoil of Thursday, Friday should unfold with simple pleasures. Connect with your most loyal companions; express an open generosity of the heart. There are no major aspects on Friday. This allows us time to cultivate and relax into the warmth of Leo.

Consider the big cats (lions, leopards, tigers, cheetahs) laying in the sun, regal and content in their strength and inner confidence. Seek out your own creativity, generosity, loyalty, warmth, and vital self-expression.

PROJECTS & PARTIES

Saturday, December 17, 2016:

The Moon is in dramatic, creative Leo all day on Saturday. You will feel strongly supported by her positive connections to expansive Jupiter, stabilizing Saturn, and unpredictable Uranus.

This is the perfect day for a creative holiday project and the perfect evening for a holiday gathering or party.  Express your full, unabashed creativity. Dress up and show off. J

At 7:57 PM EST, the Moon trine Uranus suggests fun, excitement, along with unusual surprises and opportunities. If you’re invited to a party, say yes. Allow vitality, generosity, and openhearted self-expression to rule the day.

You may notice the beginnings of that familiar feeling that comes with Mercury retrograde. Perhaps, you’ve been aware of it for several days. Something seems to be slightly ‘off’ regarding scheduling and communications.

Mercury turns retrograde on Monday December 19th. Think about how you are going to utilize that three-week period of time. Begin to make a list of all the things left undone that you will now be able to catch up on.

 

 

PREPARATIONS

Sunday, December 18, 2016:

Sunday begins with a lovely, flowing conversation between the expressive Leo Moon and the optimistic Sagittarius Sun. You will awaken with the memory of Saturday night’s events still holding you in their warm glow.

At 11:56 AM EST, with the Leo Moon opposing aggressive Mars some agitation is likely to make itself known. Perhaps, you realize the mess you have to clean up from last night’s party, literally or figuratively. Perhaps, you are reminded that you got a little carried away with the fun. The aggravation will pass quickly and at 12:52 PM EST when the Moon enters Virgo you will settle down to the work, effort and efficiency that is required as you prepare for the week ahead.

Sunday afternoon is best spent in service to the smooth functioning of the coming days. If you are celebrating, you probably have a long list of things that must be accomplished. Sunday afternoon offers a wonderful opportunity to actually enjoy crossing many tasks off your to do list.

Enjoy a quiet evening. Monday morning Mercury turns retrograde.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:56 AM EST until she entered her go at 12:52 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

Mourning Angel in Firenze, photo by Mark Voorendt via Wiki CommonsA TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN

”Dance Me To The End Of Love”

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in 
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone 
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon 
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on 
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long 
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born 
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn 
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in 
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love

TAURUS FULL MOON: INDULGE YOUR SENSES

Monday, November 14, 2016:

What a way to start the week!  The Taurus Full Moon is exact at 8:52 AM EST.

Consider that when the Moon is in Taurus, the Sun is in its opposite sign of Scorpio.  Scorpio compels us to look into the deepest crevices and probe the darkest secrets in order to expose the truth.

Taurus’ agenda is something far different. Taurus seeks contentment and pleasure, finding stability and simplicity in opposition to the complexity and intensity of Scorpio.

Today, take a moment to slow down and indulge your senses. Pay attention to what your body wants. Go ahead and give yourself permission to eat that chocolate cake if that is what you want.

Consider what matters the most to you. Reconnect with your deepest roots. Find the patience necessary to build the structure that will support your future. Look clearly and honestly at exactly where you find yourself. Move forward from that spot with eyes wide open. Send LOVE outward from your heart into the Universe.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:52 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 8:23 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

TAP INTO CREATIVE THINKING

Tuesday, November 15, 2016:

Tuesday is likely to feel very active on an emotional level; a series of ups and downs. The restless Gemini Moon moves quickly to gather information in all circumstances. Early in the day, confusion may cloud your thinking as the Moon squares (challenges) elusive Neptune (10:53 AM EST).

If you have significant communications to deliver, wait until after 12:22 PM EST when Mercury forms a sexile aspect to Mars. This offers you the opportunity to engage in quick, sharp and creative thinking well into the evening hours.

At 6:35 PM EST, the curious Gemini Moon trine philosophical Jupiter offers enthusiasm and a confident state of mind. However, these Moon aspects don’t last long and several hours later (9:33 PM EST), the Moon opposes Saturn. This energy could slip you into a heavy hearted, lonely, or tired state of mind. Consider that it may be a simple reminder to pay attention to something or someone you have been neglecting. Do not neglect your loved ones. Give them the kindness, love, and attention that they need, it will equally feed your own heart.

Wednesday, November 16, 2016:

Wednesday begins with the excitement of the chatty Gemini Moon making a positive sextile aspect to unconventional and exciting Uranus. Expect unexpected conversations, communications, thoughts, and inspirational ideas. This energy will stick around throughout the day as the Moon is VOC* following this aspect and there is nothing else of note until the Moon enters Cancer at 5:57 PM EST.

At this point, you will do best to sit together with your loved ones. Hold them close, watch a sappy movie, and eat whatever your heart desires. Go for the chocolate cake and ice cream. Give yourself permission. If you are alone, do the same for yourself (the sappy movie, cake and ice cream) and take a hot bath. Pamper yourself.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:57 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 7:57 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

ATTENTION ON LOVE

Thursday, November 17, 2016:

Thursday offers up another day of shifting emotions. In the early part of the day, you can tap into sweetness, love, and your open heart as the nurturing Cancer Moon and Venus (in Capricorn) sit across the table from each other with a clear view and understanding that love must be powerfully and intentionally created in difficult times.

As the Moon trine mystical Neptune at 11:04 AM EST, it is time to turn your eyes toward deep sensitivity, compassion, and your connection to the divine.

By evening, you may encounter emotional tension or stress as you consider how issues of manipulation and control can be sidestepped or unplugged from their source of power.

With the Moon in domestic, sensitive Cancer, it is best to focus your attention on the care and love of those you choose to call ‘family’. If it becomes difficult to do that, head to bed early.  As with all Moon transits, this will pass easily.

 

INSPIRED WHIMSY

Friday, November 18, 2016:

Friday brings another day of emotional sensitivity with the Moon (representative of our emotional nature and our greatest needs) remaining in touchy Cancer until 10:14 PM EST.

Mental Mercury squaring elusive Neptune (11:03 AM EST) may leave you confused and even baffled by your own thoughts. You may struggle with even simple communications. If you have communications that are important, this is not the day to present them. You may discover that the conversation you are having is not being heard as you intend it.

Please pay attention to what is true and what is simply imagination or illusion. Do not take what you hear as fact without double-checking the accuracy and the source. Do not pass on anything you are not sure of. This aspect can be used creatively. Story telling or writing a short story of inspired whimsy and imagination is a great use for these energies.

At 5:02 PM EST, the affectionate Cancer Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to the Sun in Scorpio. This suggests an evening when you can put tender kindness and emotional nurturing on the menu. You are able to freely explore your most tender loving connections.

At 10:14 PM EST, when the Moon enters Leo you may prefer to do something creative or playful rather than get to sleep! Enjoy! Friday will be a more outgoing and exuberant day.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:02 PM EST until she enters Leo at 10:14 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

ELUSIVE INSPIRATION

Saturday, November 19, 2016:

With the Moon in expressive, fun loving Leo, you can anticipate a friendly, creative weekend. However, slow down; first, you must get through the morning.

It would be best to spend the morning hours engaging in an independent physical activity. Go for a bike ride or a run. With the Moon opposed assertive Mars at 11:49 AM EST, the dynamics are ripe for aggravation and anger. Again, this is a Moon aspect and will not last very long; by mid afternoon, that energy lightens up.

At 6:00 PM EST, when the Leo Moon trine thoughtful Mercury, your communications will flow easily bringing you into a pleasant evening of generosity and play.

At 6:03 PM EST, Venus sextile Neptune; this offers you the possibility of bringing inspiration and lovely imagination to your relationships and your personal values.

Open your heart to accept the gift of compassion and inspiration, allow love to flow easily even if it is elusive and lacking solid form. Don’t try to hold on, allow it to slip easily into mystical dream space.

 

SPREAD HOPE

Sunday, November 20, 2016:

Sunday is a very quiet day astrologically. Take advantage of this. The Leo Moon forms pleasing aspects to Jupiter and Saturn while we are still sleeping so they will not have an impact other than in your dreams.  Perhaps, you will notice both expansive and stabilizing dreams in the early morning hours. Write them down. You will notice if you write your dreams down each morning over time you will remember them more and more. Your dreams have messages and much to teach you.

At 12:08 PM EST, when the Moon trine Uranus, gather with your community or friends. Enjoy the afternoon. We have all been under so much stress in the past weeks. This is an excellent opportunity to open your mind are body to playful self-expression and joyous inspirations. Spread hope. Spread joy.

* 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, textiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 15, 2016 through August 21, 2016

Given that August is always my favorite month (you know, my birthday and all!) it has been challenging to look clearly at the difficulties apparent in this August.

I believe that once Mars finally conjuncts Saturn on August 24th and squares Neptune on August 26th, things will begin to clarify and settle down. The build-up to this time could be a deep challenge for many of us.

I suspect that we will all awaken in early September wondering how we got so pulled into directions that have clearly been mistaken steps. Watch your back and support others.

Don’t forget to put August 30th on your calendar as the day that Mercury goes retrograde. Consider this your heads-up. Begin now to prepare to stop forward motion on all projects at that time. For the following three weeks, it will be important to focus on completions. Depending on the weeks leading up to Mercury’s retrograde, there may be much for us to assimilate going forward.

RESPECT AND RELEASE

Monday, August 15, 2016:

Monday brings us the isolationist Capricorn Moon forming harsh connections with both Pluto and Uranus. This highlights the tough aspect between Pluto and Uranus that has reflected many of our cultural and personal woes over the past 4 years. We have watched the struggle between our need for independence and freedom and our equally valid need for structure and stability. These two needs crash into each other regularly in a million different ways. The planetary cycles are expressed in the political struggle, and reflected in our personal struggles.

We have front row seats on an amazing show – for all its wonder and distress!

These are quickly passing Moon transits and will only cause serious problems if we respond from a place of fear, defensiveness, and our own self-interest. Look outside of yourself to find understanding of perspectives that are not necessarily aligned with your own.

This is a great day to spend in solitary contemplation and work. Show kindness toward others with the acknowledgement that you can never fully understand another’s view. You don’t have to. You only need to respect and allow.

The Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:45 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius Tuesday morning at 7:53 AM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant impact.

 

INNOVATION AND DETACHMENT

Tuesday, August 16, 2016:

On Tuesday morning at 7:53 AM EDT, the Moon enters intellectually innovative Aquarius.  With the Moon in Aquarius, we are able to take a break from sensitivity and overly engaged emotions. We have the ability to detach from drama and seek unusual solutions.

At 4:23 PM EDT, the Sun while moving through dramatic Leo, trines Uranus the planet that rules Aquarius, making this a very Aquarian day. If possible, make it a point to spend time with your most unique friends working on original projects created for the betterment of humanity. Keep your eyes on the larger picture. In all things, consider what is best for all humankind rather than on your own self interests.

The excitement or anxiety that you feel today is a direct result of a seed that was planted in your life on or around April 9th. What action did you take to help that seed develop on or about July 16th? On Tuesday, the Sun trine Uranus brings excitement (or dread) as you intuit the outcome approaching. You may receive surprising or unusual news that will help move you forward. The full illumination of this cycle occurs in mid October.

The Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aquarius this morning at 7:53 AM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant impact.

One thing to remember, if you feel low or depressed on Tuesday, consider what it is that the Universe is asking of you that you are afraid to take on. Gather courage and step up to that plate.

The Moon forms an energetic sextile to Mars at 6:50 PM EDT. You may have an unexpected boost of energy in the evening hours. Don’t waste it sitting home alone. Get out into the world and find people who will engage in interesting and inspirational conversations.

 

POWERFUL LOVE

Wednesday, August 17, 2016:

The Moon continues through objective Aquarius throughout Wednesday. This is another day when we should be able to see the world objectively and not get caught in sensitivity or other challenging emotional states.

At 10:17 PM EDT, harmonious Venus forms a trine aspect to transformative Pluto.  This trine aspect creates a free flow of empowerment into our love relationships, our sense of beauty, and possibly, our finances.  A gift is given, a gift of love or a gift of insight. This cycle began with a seed of passion and beauty planted in early February, by the end of June you knew how far this seed was going to be able to develop.

Now is the time to set it on its way, to begin to deepen the commitment or, alternatively, begin to release it. Now, you should be able to see and understand the trajectory of development and how this energy can be of service to others.  Profound observations can be made if we keep our eyes open and continue to check in with the reality of others.

Opening your heart, you will find love is right there waiting.

 

AQUARIUS FULL MOON: ILLUMINATION

Thursday, August 18, 2016:

The Aquarius Full Moon is exact at 5:27 AM EDT.  At the Full Moon, the world embodies a sense of illumination. The Moon provides the light by which we can see what is often hidden. Truths are easily revealed, understood, and accepted at the Full Moon.

With the Sun in expressive Leo and the Moon in unusual Aquarius, we are able to show our full authentic and unique self while maintaining open hearted generosity. Did you do your New Moon ritual on August 2nd? Can you now see how far you have come regarding the seed that you planted at that time?

At 12:35 PM EDT, the Moon enters the dreamy artistic sign of Pisces shifting our moods and feelings to sensitive awareness and gentle fantasy. Kindness toward others comes more easily as compassion and empathy expand. Allow that compassion and inspiration to envelop your heart and include others in your deepest dreams.

The Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:27 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 12:35 PM. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant impact.

 

DEEP SENSITIVITY

Friday, August 19, 2016:

The Moon continues moving through imaginative, sensitive Pisces on Friday. Let’s think about Pisces for a moment. Pisces relates to all that is intangible and unknowable. We attach words to the signs to enable us to understand their meanings and to somehow make them more solid. Yet, regardless of what words we attach to it, when we reach for Pisces it dissolves in our hands.

At 7:21 AM EDT, the Pisces Moon conjunct Neptune, increasing the sensitive, compassionate, and mystical energy of this day. You may notice yourself feeling more emotionally sensitive than usual. Please remember that others are more sensitive than usual as well. Be gentle in dealing with anyone you encounter.

Allow your imagination to soar with inspiration, idealism, and sensitivity. Create something of beauty, get lost in music or art, and meditate.

SEEK INTERNAL PATIENCE

Saturday, August 20, 2016:

On Saturday morning, you have a choice to make. You could get up very early for conversation and connections with expansively minded friends or you could simply stay in bed late and enjoy connecting with whoever is in your immediate environment, and relax easily into the day.

If you choose to meet up with friends, do so before 8:20 AM EDT. If you stay home, pour yourself that first cup of coffee before 8:20 AM EDT. With the Moon VOC*, It doesn’t really matter how you spend the time between 8:20 AM EDT and 3:19 PM EDT. Not a lot will result from however you choose to spend this time… so, sleep, drink coffee, play with your grandchildren! Whatever seems like a good idea will be fine.

At 3:19 PM EDT, the Moon enters courageous, independent Aries.  Make a plan to use direct physical energy on Saturday afternoon or evening. Make love; go for a run, a bike ride, or head to the gym. It is important that you move physical energy consciously in order to support internal calm.

This is a good evening for physical expression but not particularly for social interactions. We may be a bit impatient and even selfish. Be aware that others are feeling the same way. Seek patience while staying out of circumstances that could bring up aggression, forcefulness, and combativeness.  Seriously stay out of political conversations on Saturday afternoon and into the evening. No one will have the ability to see any perspective but what they are already attached to. Anger and self-righteousness is right below the surface and can easily emerge.  Respectfully avoiding these conversations will be your best bet.

The Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:20 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 3:19 PM. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant impact.

 

KEEP YOUR HEART & MIND AWAKE

Sunday, August 21, 2016:

You will want to get up early on Sunday morning to enjoy the dynamic Aries Moon forming a trine aspect to energetic Mars at 5:10 AM EDT followed by the Moon trine stabilizing Saturn at 7:44 AM EDT. You will have access to powerfully courageous and independent energy. Use it wisely.

Perhaps planning a solitary (Aries is an independent sign) adventure that will take effort and courage to accomplish. Make sure this ‘adventure’ has no ill effects on others.

At 4:42 PM EDT, when the Aries Moon squares Pluto, you may be confronted with the darker side of your own or another’s hostility and selfishness. Maintain awareness of others, the importance of kindness, and the value of love. This is not a day to go into unconscious states of paranoia, coercion, or obsession. Keep the softest side of your mind and heart awake.

As we close out the week, we approach a conjunction between Mercury and Jupiter that will be exact on Monday morning (August 22) at 5:04 AM EDT. We will be feeling this energy as it approaches. This will help us to open our minds to a new, and more expansive vision going forward.  Consider how you want to open your thinking two new ideas and perspectives. Are there new conversations to be had, new studies to engage with, or simply new windows of the mind to fling open?
