SPRING EQUINOX – SUN ENTERS ARIES

Monday, March 20, 2017:

The week begins with the Sun entering Aries at 6:28 AM EDT. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox! It is bringing with it longer days, a vision for the future, new ideas, and new plans.

The Spring Equinox alerts us to a time of new beginning with plenty of reason to celebrate! This is a moment of balance and equanimity as the earth’s axis is pointing neither away from nor toward the Sun.

The shift may not initially feel as energizing as you may expect. With the expansive Sagittarius Moon joining with overly serious Saturn at 6:38 AM EDT, followed by her movement into Capricorn at 11:31 AM EDT, there is seriousness and a conservative edge to the day.

At 11:59 AM EDT, the Capricorn Moon forms a challenging aspect to the Sun, newly in Aries. Consider that Capricorn is the sign of maturity, authority, and caution while Aries is the sign of youthfulness, impatience, and excitability. When these two signs challenge each other, something has to give.

This is the Third Quarter Square phase of the Moon; it is a time of release. What has been building since the New Moon on March 27? Take it easy today. Let go and prepare for warmer days. Spring will soon begin in earnest.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:38 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 11:31 AM EDT.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

INSPIRATION SERVES PRACTICALITY

Tuesday, March 21, 2017:

Tuesday, as the emotional Moon continues through responsible Capricorn, you are reminded that even with Spring in the air you have plenty of work to do.

At 12:17 PM EDT, even your serious nature welcomes your imagination and ability to dream. With a positive sextile aspect between the Moon and Neptune, your dreams can produce real world and practical results.

At 6:20 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a challenging square to Mercury. You are serious about the ideas that have grasped your attention.

All in all, this is a simple day of hard work with a lovely bit of inspiration. Utilize that inspiration; it will serve practical reality.

PRACTICE FLEXIBILITY

Wednesday, March 22, 2017:

Wednesday may start out a bit messy. The Aries Sun is ready to shine a little brighter without the restrictions of the Capricorn Moon. However, as the day begins, the serious Capricorn Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unsettling Uranus.

The Capricorn Moon seeks structure and demands responsibility, and yet, Uranus throws a monkey wrench into that idea as he seeks innovation and even revolution. This combination can create aggravation and upheaval throughout the morning. Work on your ability to be flexible; it may not come easily but will be well worth the effort.

The rest of the day with the Moon VOC* may just feel a little off kilter. Don’t attach yourself too much to accomplishments or forced engagements. At 10:29 PM EDT, the Moon will enter progressive Aquarius bringing a much greater sense of freedom and lightness to Thursday morning.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:20 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 10:29 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

DEEPEN YOUR THINKING

Thursday, March 23, 2017:

Thursday begins with a lovely sextile between the quirky Aquarius Moon and beautiful Venus. Enjoy the morning.

Some agitation may occur when the Moon squares aggressive Mars at 5:20 PM EDT. Use your body to release this tension, go for a walk, chop some wood, or engage your body with physical effort.

As the evening approaches, you will feel expressive Mercury beginning to form a challenging square aspect to powerful Pluto, which will be exact at 8:44 PM EDT. Be aware of verbal power dynamics. Continue to make a concerted effort toward internal and external flexibility. Watch your responses to communications that come your way. Take three slow breaths before responding.

Don’t take what is said personally and watch the words that come out of your mouth as well. It is easy to say things that will be taken in a way that you many not intend. Be aware of your words, emails, and all communications.

This would be an excellent evening for deep study or to work on a powerful speech or other significant writing project.

 

 

WHAT WILL BE REVEALED?

Friday, March 24, 2017:

If you were engaged in a significant conversation, an important study, or a writing project on Thursday, Friday will be the day to expand upon and illuminate those conversations and ideas. At 8:45AM EDT, Mercury opposes Jupiter expanding your creative intelligence, your faith and belief in your ideas.

With the Moon in objective, progressive Aquarius forming delightful aspects to expansive Jupiter, thoughtful Mercury, and quirky Uranus, you can expect this to be a highly innovative day for humanitarian efforts, expansive ideas, and bringing your voice to a public arena. This is the full illumination of a cycle that began on October 11, 2016! Watch what is happening in the current political administration.

Pay attention for big revelations in your own life and on the world and national stage.

ARTISTS AND LOVERS

Saturday March 25, 2017:

Saturday offers a day to engage in actively seeking love and passively accepting love. Both sides are offered. At 6:07 AM EDT, the Moon enters compassionate, dreamy Pisces enabling us to swim within deeply emotional waters. At 6:17 AM EDT, the Sun and Venus come together in the highly assertive and active sign of Aries. Emotionally, you may get lost in sensitivity and imagination while simultaneously you know you must take action to directly go after what you truly desire. Make direct contact with love or expressions of beauty.

Once you have made direct contact with the object of your desire, allow yourself to passively engage in deep compassion or dreamy mystical states.

Bring your attention to love and beauty. This is a day made for artists and lovers.

 

 

EXCITEMENT 

Sunday, March 26, 2017:

Sunday continues with some of the dreamy sensitivity from Saturday courtesy of the surreal Pisces Moon.

But, you probably won’t be thinking too much about all of that as there is intense excitement in the air that will require all of your attention! At 11:05 AM EDT, Mercury conjoins with Uranus beginning a one year cycle of mental stimulation. Pay attention to unusual, new, or exciting ideas that come to mind. Perhaps you will hear or read something that surprises, excites, or even shocks you. Unexpected information may be revealed that will begin a new process in your life.

If you experience any sort of sluggishness or depression on Sunday, stop and consider what is it that needs to be said that you are avoiding. Something wants to be revealed. Go ahead, say it! Yes, it may very well set you on a new path, but it is a path that must be taken.

IMPULSIVE, DYNAMIC THINKING AHEAD

Monday, March 13, 2017:

Monday morning begins with a lovely Libra Moon ushering us into our day. Focus your attention on creating harmony and diplomatic social relationships. Make nice with everyone. This should be relatively easy, even with Venus retrograde.

At 5:07 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our thoughts, communications, and general perceptions, moves quickly into dynamic, impulsive Aries. Mercury only remains in Aries until March 31st, when it will move into stable Taurus.

While Mercury is in Aries, your thinking moves quickly and you may have very little patience. You could easily get yourself into trouble by saying exactly what comes to mind without thinking through the consequences. Your thoughts can bring powerful inspiration and you may feel as though your mind has caught fire!

Enjoy the experience but do remember to slow down and be kind with your words.

 

 

A POWERFUL DAY LEADS TO HEALING

Tuesday, March 14, 2017:

Diplomacy and peacemaking was easier on Monday then it will be on Tuesday. Yes, the Moon continues through harmonious Libra but forms harsh aspects to the T-square between powerful Pluto, enlarged Jupiter, and defiant Uranus, which is the planetary combination that has us all in turmoil!

During the T-square, first, the Libra Moon squares Pluto, followed by a conjunction to Jupiter, and then opposes Uranus, all within the course of the day. This activity highlights the intense level of agitation, over-extension, and power grabbing activity we see in the highest level of government. You will feel these energies in your own life and watch them in the lives of your friends as well.

At 10:41 PM EDT, when the Sun conjoins Chiron, the Wounded Healer, at 24° Pisces, you may find the ability to release an old wound and reach for healing that is offered.

As you offer healing compassion to others, your own pain can be released. Pay attention to your dreams, release the tight knots of your heart, and rest in open inspiration. Meditation and dreams will support this powerful process.

RELEASE – BREATHE – REPEAT

Wednesday, March 15, 2017:

Wednesday begins at 6:06 AM EDT with a harmonious sextile between the charming Libra Moon and stabilizing Saturn. Allow the day to begin with ease and simplicity.

At 11:11 AM EDT, the Moon leaves diplomacy aside to enter mysterious Scorpio. This brings passionate, introspective depth to the rest of the day. Perhaps, on Tuesday, you wanted to please others but on Wednesday you’re more cautious and it’s possible that your suspicious nature will take over.

At 7:38 PM EDT, when the compulsive Scorpio Moon opposes aggressive Mars, you or those around you, may be spoiling for a fight. Don’t let that fight engage you. It is only a Moon transit and will subside if you give it a bit of time. Do not respond, take deep breaths, and simply let it go. If you engage with that battle, it may grow all out of proportion.

Release – Breathe – Repeat.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:06 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 11:11 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

EMBRACE INSPIRATION

Thursday, March 16, 2017:

Thursday should be a calm and simple day. The powerful Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine to mystical Neptune at 11:25 AM EDT.

This holds your emotions in a powerful state of dreamy inspiration. If you are a poet, musician, artist, or mystic, this is a lovely day to follow your inspiration. For the rest of you, it is a day to take notice of your connection to spirituality, music, compassion, and the creation of inspiration in all areas of your life.

 

 

RESPONSIBILITY AND SELF-RESPECT

Friday, March 17, 2017:

On Friday, as the Sun squares serious Saturn at 5:47 PM EDT, you will likely have the sense of being held back somehow. You may feel that some higher authority is preventing you from moving forward in some way. Step back from the temptation to look for blame or to express your frustration with anger.

This is a day when it is important to look clearly into the face of reality. A great difficulty will occur if you attempt to avoid whatever reality needs to be faced. What responsibilities do you wish were not on your plate? How much easier will your life be if you simply face the issue and embrace your limitations with self-respect? This is the final square of the cycle of maturity that began on December 10, 2016.

Something that began in December is now beginning a process of release. Face the issue and work with it rather than trying to hold to something that wants to change. It does not necessarily need to end but must begin to change form.

P.S. You can look forward to a lovely weekend ahead.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:57 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 11:00 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

WORDS OF LOVE

Saturday, March 18, 2017:

Saturday is a lovely day to speak the words of love and appreciation that are on your mind. If you have held back from declaring your heartfelt feeling, today is the day to directly speak from your heart.

At 8:26 AM EDT, expressive Mercury conjoins with lovely Venus, both at 9° Aries. This colors the entire day with a desire to be assertive and direct with pleasurable, beautiful communications.

Later in the day, as the impulsive, optimistic Sagittarius Moon forming a flowing trine aspect to this pair, it simply accentuates the expansion and words of love. If you have anything good to say, this is the day to say it. If words are a part of your creativity as a writer or speaker, enjoy a great boost to the positive words and expressions of beauty you are able to bring forth.

 

 

SEEK A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Sunday, March 19, 2017:

What can you get excited about on Sunday? The Moon remains in delightful, philosophical, freedom-loving Sagittarius throughout the day. There is nothing to get in the way of Sagittarius’ jovial nature.

At 4:35 PM EDT, she forms a lovely sextile to expansive Jupiter, followed by a flowing trine to excitable Uranus at 9:30 EDT.

Find ways to expand your vision, your perspective, and your worldview. Engage in conversations with people who think very differently than you do, plan a trip that will bring you face-to-face with another perspective of the world, or watch a documentary that opens your mind to the way others think or live.

DETERMINATION MEETS CONFUSION

Monday, February 27, 2017:

Don’t expect to settle into calm terrain yet! When impulsive, possibly angry, Mars opposes expansive Jupiter at 9:24 AM EST, the challenges of last week are ratcheted up. There is an overabundance of heat and powerful determination.

With the Moon still in Pisces, you may feel unclear and even confused by the circumstances and shifting events of the past five days. Whatever wake-up call or shocking revelation you have had is going to take some time and inner work to process.

When the sensitive Pisces Moon conjunct Chiron at 1:09 PM EST, you will seek a silent place of healing. Take yourself and your process seriously; go inward even as you support those you love.

With the Moon square Saturn at 6:07 PM EST, you may feel the need for time alone. Respect that for yourself and others.

At 11:51 PM EST, the Moon releases her elusive sensitivity as she enters dynamic, independent Aries. You will be ready to face a new day on Tuesday.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:07 PM EST until she interested Aries at 11:51 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.

 

 

 

BOLD COURAGEOUS LOVE

Tuesday, February 28, 2017:

Finally, we are offered a day of astrological calm on Tuesday. Perhaps, calm is a relative term when the emotional Moon, romantic Venus, defiant Uranus, and dynamic Mars are all in Aries, the sign of impulsive determination. Wow. That is a lot of assertiveness that is bubbling alongside the soft sensitivity of the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune all in Pisces. You cannot really believe all that you see (fake news indeed).

Even with all of this as we come off the past week’s intensity, we will take this moment to breath and relax. The only major aspect throughout the day is the Moon conjunct Venus at 9:54 PM EST.

Consider your most deeply held values; contemplate your own pursuit of love, money, and beauty. Go to bed early, make love with your partner or connect with your own self-love.

Understand that there is boldness and courage in your engagement in love at this time.

SIDESTEP HOTSPOTS

Wednesday, March 1, 2017:

Wednesday begins with the aggressive Aries Moon having difficult conversations with obsessive Pluto, anxiety producing Uranus, Jupiter (the planet that simply enlarges whatever picture we are looking at), and aggressive Mars. It is a good idea to carefully observe your own emotional triggers and sidestep other people’s hotspots. This is not a day to speak your mind or engage in difficult conversations. No one will win.

At 9:19 PM EST, the Aries Moon forms a stabilizing trine to steadfast Saturn calming us in time for sleep.

At 9:43 PM EST, you are certainly ready to drift into dreamland, spend time in meditation, or pour yourself an extra glass or two of wine. Your perspective of the circumstances you find yourself in may be highly distorted. Find a way to express your most creative imagination and get a good night’s sleep. Keep your notebook handy to write down your dreams when you wake up on Thursday morning.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:19 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 2:43 AM EST on Thursday morning.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

 

CONNECT WITH KINDNESS

Thursday, March 2, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in Taurus, which you would normally expect to bring solid relief to all the intensity we are living in.

However, with Jupiter now opposing Uranus, whatever you are expecting will be larger and more exciting (or disastrous) than you anticipate. You have the sense of desperately wanting to break free of limitations and restrictions and are highly aware of the most positive as well as the most negative expression of future possibilities.

I encourage you to watch the reflection and the rumbling changes of these energies in your personal life as well as within our culture, our government and the world.

Wherever you find yourself, be an example of calm, open-hearted love, kindness and acceptance. Don’t let yourself get caught up in your own situation so much that you miss the opportunity to make significant, deep connection with others. We are all in need of an extra dose of kindness. Be that example in the world, show the love in your heart.

 

 

 

SIMPLY REST

Friday, March 3, 2017:

Friday presents us with a quiet day of rest. Following a smooth, easy trine aspect to Pluto at 10:20 AM EST, the solid Taurus Moon is VOC until 5:06 AM EST Saturday morning. VOC stands for void of course, meaning that the Moon has made its final major aspect while in one sign until it enters the next sign.

In other words following her conversation with Pluto, she doesn’t speak to any of the other planets until she enters Gemini early Saturday. This slows down all activity and gives us time to rest.

The intense energies of these past weeks have us all on edge; and no, it is not over. For Friday, allow yourself to take a break. Go home after work, cook a nice meal and spend time doing something that simply makes you happy. Take a bath; give your lover massage. Rest.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:20 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 5:06 AM EST on Saturday morning.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

VENUS RETROGRADE – WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

Saturday March 4, 2017:

By the time you wake up Saturday morning, the Moon will be in Gemini encouraging conversation, friendliness, and curiosity.

The important thing this week occurs on Saturday as Venus turns retrograde at 4:09 AM EST. She will remain retrograde until April 15th. This is an important period of time. Pay careful attention. Venus goes retrograde approximately every 2 years. As with any retrograde, it is important to refrain from forward motion regarding the issues related to the planet involved.

Venus represents the things we value most dearly, our love relationships, money, art, romance, and beauty. Venus represents our deepest personal values. During this time, it is important to go inward and get crystal clear on the things that you value most highly in your life.

Don’t be surprised if past lovers show up on your doorstep or in your FB feed. What do you need to revisit from the past? What can you learn by looking at what you have valued in the past?

Consider carefully what is of the highest value in your life. Consider that what is in your life has higher value than you may know. Consider what it would take for you to be deeply satisfied. Could you be satisfied exactly where you find yourself?

This is a time of contemplation, not forward motion on these issues.  Do not, I repeat, DO NOT start a new romantic relationship or make new financial investments.

 

 

 

ACTION TO STABILIZE

Sunday, March 5, 2017:

Sunday brings a very active Gemini Moon offering you many opportunities for connections, conversations, and engagement with friends and family.

Early in the morning, before you head into all that activity, there may be some challenge as you are simply not sure which way to turn. Once you determine the direction and take action to move forward, the day will smooth out.

At 6:32 AM EST, the chatty Gemini Moon squares the passive Pisces Sun. You will want the action of the day to be something that moves forward the intension you set in motion, or the seed you planted at the New Moon last weekend.

At 3:45 PM EST, assertive Mars forms a pleasing trine aspect to steady Saturn. This will assist in accomplishments coming easily and hard work moving smoothly. As you push forward into the future, you feel deeply supported by structure and stabilization. This is a day when your communications can help to stabilize your actions.

Bring folks together to get a project done that involves both intellect and physical action. Enjoy time spent with friends accomplishing projects and taking action to move your life forward.

EXCITEMENT AND POSSIBILITY

Monday, February 20, 2017:

The Sagittarius Moon is having conversations of excitement and ease with assertive Mars, conversational Mercury, revolutionary Uranus, and expansive Jupiter! All of this before noon!

Please, get up early and get on with this day. There is great activity and shifting perspectives will be available. This should be a great morning for planning or implementing a road trip or in some way expanding your world-view.

Given all the activity and excitement, do keep your feet firmly anchored on the ground. At 6:37 PM EST, you may encounter restriction or have to face reality on an issue you were hoping to avoid.

As you are heading toward sleep on Monday night, you may be blindsided by excitement or anxiety. You may receive a message, hear or read something that activates your thinking in a way that makes falling asleep challenging!

If there is a conversation that you need to have or something you need to research, you may as well stay up late.

Some idea or conversation is offered that may change the fabric of your thinking over the coming weeks. At 11:01 PM EST, Mercury, the planet that represents our thoughts and communication forms a sextile aspect to Uranus, the awakener. Perhaps, there is something that needs to be released unexpectedly in order for deeper understanding and a new idea to be birthed in late March.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:37 PM EST until she enters have Capricorn at 2:07 AM EST in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

IDEALISM AND HOPE

Tuesday, February 21, 2017:

When you wake on Tuesday, the Moon is in ambitious Capricorn encouraging you to engage in mature, responsible activities. The serious Capricorn Moon stabilizes the idealism of Pisces as a sextile aspect forms between the Moon and the Sun (in Pisces) at 8:16 AM EST. Get to work early and plan on making great strides of accomplishment. You have the stamina to maintain a powerful work ethic and focus throughout Tuesday.

Keep exerting pressure on the focused maturity of your effort.

At 1:27 PM EST, a flowing trine aspect forms between mental Mercury and expansive Jupiter. Think back to an idealistic view or idea that began to take hold between August and October of 2016. That idea has been mightily challenged, has had space to grow, and now flourishes. Open your mind to idealism and hope.

POWER DYNAMICS

Wednesday, February 22, 2017:

Please keep in mind that fighting battles that you have no control over the outcome and simply cannot win will simply drain you and leave you mentally and emotionally vulnerable.

A square aspect formed between two plants represents a challenge. The energies of the two plants involved are working at cross-purposes. On Wednesday, a square aspect forms between aggressive Mars and obsessive Pluto. This holds a powerful shadow over much of the week, but watch most closely for it on Wednesday.

Understand that this suggests a high potential for conflict, anger, and power struggles.

Consider where you can best direct your warrior spirit. Make a constructive difference in your world with this powerful energy. Dynamic Mars squares the hidden forces of coercive Pluto at 4:02 AM EST.

Focus your attention on what you can change. Go inward and get clear about your responsibilities and consciously consider where you can direct your energy for the greater good of all. Beating your head against the wall is not useful; try gathering like-minded folks together to discuss current events.

The start of this cycle was on October 19, 2016. Watch the political drama that is playing out!

The Capricorn Moon takes everything seriously and also forms difficult aspects to angry Mars, unsettling Uranus, and powerful Pluto. This is a challenging day, use it well, and with respect and caution.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:24 PM EST until she enters Aquarius at 12:18 PM EST on Thursday afternoon. 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.

 

 

SPEAK UP

Thursday, February 23, 2017:

Thursday morning, you will most likely still be in the grip of the challenges that Wednesday’s aspect of Mars square Pluto brought. Don’t miss your daily meditation practice. It will serve you well.

At 12:18 PM EST, the Moon (the holder of our ‘feeling nature’) enters unemotional Aquarius. This will bring the relief of a cool detachment. Any emotional intensity held over from Wednesday can now wash away, being replaced with a more intellectual, detached perspective.

Aquarius allows us to see the world objectively enabling us to plan accordingly. We see the big picture as we plan humanitarian rebellion. Watch what is happening around the world. There is instability that demands that we each look at the bigger picture and join together with others to plan accordingly.

Mercury (currently in Aquarius) is the planet of thinking and communicating. At 4:45 PM EST, Mercury sextile serious Saturn. A sextile aspect is an opportunity.

Generally speaking, we want to say yes to the opportunities that a sextile presents. This opportunity is one of speaking your mind. If there is something you need to say, now is the time to say it. This is a wonderful aspect for writers, speakers, or anyone who has something to say!

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aquarius at 12:18 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.

 

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Friday, February 24, 2017:

Finally, we come to a day that offers simplicity.  The Moon continues through objective and rebellious Aquarius. Your ideas and emotions continue their focus on the needs of the larger culture. When the Moon is in Aquarius, we are able to see outside of ourselves to the issues that impact humanity at large.

At 10:41 AM EST, when the Moon forms a sweet sextile to lovely Venus, the planet of beauty and love, our hearts open to the harshness in the state of our world. You are able to see into the eyes of those less fortunate and seek ways to be of help.

Your task for Friday is to find an avenue to direct your attention, efforts, and money to help the world outside of your little personal bubble.

MORNING PLEASURES

Saturday February 25, 2017:

Get up early on Saturday morning and gather together with friends or family. This is a lovely day with positive aspects to assertive Mars, unusual Uranus, expansive Jupiter, and stabilizing Saturn. You will be able to get a lot accomplished or simply have a lot of fun during the bulk of the day.

Things change when, at 6:07 PM EST, mental Mercury follows the Sun into dreamy, mystical Pisces and the Moon follows on its heels at 7:25 PM EST. We now have a serious pile-up of planets in sensitive Pisces.  With our focus on the surreal Pisces energy, you may struggle to understand what is nearly unknowable.

What is under the surface of your life that you cannot quite see? Perhaps, it shows up as a vague shadow. What are you unable to see clearly? Taking time in meditation over the coming days will be highly valuable.

We are also in the Dark of the Moon as we approach the New Moon and Solar Eclipse which will be exact on Sunday morning. Go inward for understanding; there is more intensity right around the corner. It is important to strengthen your soul’s purpose and direction.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:12 PM EST until she enters Pisces at 7:25 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.

 

 

PISCES NEW MOON – SOLAR ECLIPSE

Sunday, February 26, 2017:

Sunday is a significant day! First, we have the New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 9:59 AM EST. You may feel plunged into darkness and confusion. Do not despair. Keep your eyes open, allow inspiration and transcendent mysteries to be revealed. It may be difficult to see fantasy from reality so allow yourself to hold a soft focus.

This is not a day to make solid decisions, and not a day to allow yourself to get lost in confusion or escape. Hold steady. Spend time in meditation, creating art, listening to music, or opening your heart to compassion.

Eclipses open new doorways, they can put our feet on a new and unexpected pathway. Life can change on a dime.

Accentuating all of that is the conjunction between Mars and Uranus at 7:19 PM EST. This begins a two-year cycle of assertive, revolutionary change. This aspect occurs at 22° Aries. To understand where in your personal life this change, begin by looking to where 22° Aries falls in your natal chart. If you want to understand more about your personal chart, please contact me for a consultation (astrolore@gmail.com). You will learn a great deal about yourself and your path forward.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

STABILIZATION AND EQUILIBRIUM

Monday, February 13, 2017:

Monday offers a solid, stable day to reconnect and strengthen your equilibrium. The Moon continues through steadfast, hard-working Virgo until she enters graceful, refined Libra at 3:43 PM EST.

Monday morning you can anticipate a need to stabilize your position or your emotional state. By mid-afternoon, with the Moon’s entry into Libra at 3:43 PM EST, you are ready to put your most diplomatic, social self forward. You understand the importance of pleasing others in order to allow smooth movement forward in your process and in your life.

Monday offers a pleasant day as we reach for a sweet sextile (an aspect of opportunity) between the Aquarius Sun and Saturn, the planet of responsibility and restraint. This aspect is not exact until the earliest hours of Tuesday but can be clearly felt on Monday evening.

Watch for opportunities to settle into more structured stable patterns or habits as you move forward. Let the energy of strength and self-determination into your dreams and wake with you on Tuesday morning.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:53 AM EST until she enters Virgo at 8:52 AM EST. So, by the time you are fully into your day, the Moon will be in Virgo. 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.

 

 

LOVE IS NO EASY GAME

Tuesday, February 14, 2017:

Many of you will awake with thoughts of love and partnership on this Valentine’s Day. With the Moon in romantic, charming Libra, it is an appropriate day to consider your closest love relationships. However, this is not a day to seek or celebrate frivolous or immature love.

The day begins with a sextile aspect between the Sun and stabilizing Saturn at 12:58 AM EST. This is a celebration of structure, stability, and the work that is necessary to create solid growth in our lives and our partnerships. Love is no easy game, and on Tuesday with this seriousness in mind, that is clear to us.

Think about what began at the start of the cycle between Saturn and the Sun on December 10, 2016. What did you decide to begin, grow, or strengthen at that time? Now, consider what you can do over the coming months to support its ongoing growth. In mid-March, when the Sun forms its opening square to Saturn, you will be required to take a major step forward in its process. Consider for now what that upcoming action may be.

As far as the love issue, remember that this year Valentine’s Day is dedicated to serious and committed love. You are being asked to release or deepen the love you are currently engaged in. It is up to you. Let the connection go if you do not feel the need or desire to form some structure that will support its growth.

If you are single, consider your commitment to being single or your commitment to opening to a love partnership. Not everyone desires or needs a committed partnership to support the deepest growth of their soul. Contemplate where you land on the spectrum of need and desire for love and partnership. Gain some clarity.

A ROUGH START LEADS TO PLEASURE

Wednesday, February 15, 2017:

Don’t be surprised to wake on Wednesday morning with a bit of anxiety and even dread. The Libra Moon engages in harsh conversations with empowered Pluto and agitated Uranus, setting us on-edge. Don’t try to run from it or pretend it is not lurking there beneath the surface; don’t let it rule your day either. These are simple Moon transits that do not hold us under their thumb for any extended period of time. Let it go… let it go…

At 11:54 AM EST, when the lovely Libra Moon meets up with Jupiter, you will feel a lightening of emotional constriction; the remainder of the day and evening should be one of the highpoints of the week. The cooperative Libra Moon delights in her conversations with steady Saturn and the energizing Sun. You will want to be social on Wednesday evening, either in a group or with one special friend or partner. Enjoy.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:54 PM EST until she enters Scorpio on Thursday morning at 1:41 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.

 

 

THE ACTION OF SPEECH

Thursday, February 16, 2017:

Isn’t it interesting how a new day can bring such a totally different energy to our lives? When you wake on Thursday morning, the Moon has entered the deep, dark waters of Scorpio asking that we dig deep for inner guidance and clarity.

The lightness and desire to please others that was present on Wednesday is gone. There is an emotional depth to the day that you will recognize in the eyes of all whom you encounter. Go ahead and look deeply but do not try to enter the realm of another without an express invitation.

At 1:14 PM EST, Mercury, the planet of thought and perception, is sextile (an aspect that offers an opportunity) to passionate Mars suggests that your thoughts are on fire for action. You will be able to access innovative ideas regarding the release of some understanding or consideration that began in July 2015.

Ideas and plans that lead to letting go are exposed. In late June of 2017, you will begin a new cycle of heating up your mind with a new plan or understanding of the actions required for the path forward. Seek creativity and motion in your thoughts and plans.

 

 

DEEP EMOTION – OFFER GUIDANCE

Friday, February 17, 2017:

On an emotional level, you may regret what you said on Thursday; the communication that you had to deliver. Please remember that the regret is only for the circumstances you have found yourself in, your truth really had to be spoken. It often takes kindness and courage to say what we must.

Allow yourself to stay in a realm of deep emotion throughout the day. You don’t need to run away from the intensity. There is much to learn in the depths of what is hidden away. Go ahead and open your heart to what has long been kept below.  Go deep along side those who reach out and need a helping hand.  This is a day of depth and longing. Be a light in the dark for those who live without light. Hold up your light to guide them.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:38 PM EST until she enters Sagittarius on Saturday afternoon at 1:53 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.

THE INTANGIBLE SENSITIVITY OF PISCES

Saturday, February 18, 2017:

Saturday morning brings a profound shift as The Sun leaves the intellectual brilliance of Aquarius behind to enter the intangible sensitivity of Pisces. This is the time of year that we move to our deepest internal realms of self-understanding. It is important to find inspiration and compassion even as you avoid confusion and a deep desire to escape the harsh realities that are evident in each of our lives.

The coming weeks allow time for deep contemplation as we prepare for the new solar year which begins when The Sun enters exuberant, dynamic Aries on March 20th.

The internally focused Scorpio Moon moves quietly without impact until she enters the fiery, extravagant sign of Sagittarius at 1:53 PM EST.

Over the coming month, you will do well to focus on taking time alone to go inward, to understand your own process of emotional or spiritual growth. It would be easy to spend the time watching TV, smoking weed, or drinking too much. Please make it a point to watch good movies, read poetry, listen to uplifting music, and deepen your yoga or meditation practice. Prepare yourself for the coming Spring by strengthening the pathway of your inner growth.

As the Sun enters a Water sign and the Moon enters a Fire sign, this may be a day imbued with anxiety or sadness as we move forward, adapting and adjusting to this major midwinter shift. Watch a movie, meditate or take at least one nap on Saturday.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) on Saturday until she enters Sagittarius at 1:53 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.

 

 

ENGAGE YOUR IMAGINATION

Sunday, February 19, 2017:

I hope you were able to take some steps toward adjusting into the dreamy energy of Pisces on Saturday. If you drank too much or otherwise used Saturday poorly, the difficulty of adjustment will continue into Sunday.

However, if you were able to seamlessly adjust to incoming Pisces energies, Sunday should be a pleasant day. At 10:21 AM EST, the Sagittarius Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to Venus, the planet of love and beauty. We are encouraged to take a step forward or to simply allow love and friendship to flourish.

I would encourage each of you to take a friend to brunch, or join together with a group of friends. Following brunch, take in a movie to celebrate the Pisces Sun and the square to Neptune at 12:44 PM EST. No serious movies please, choose something that will allow you to drift into a space of unreality in a healthy way engaging your imagination, inspiration and deep compassion.
