The Lunar Nodes change signs on Tuesday!

As the transiting Lunar Nodes move through the signs, they impact our lives through our natal charts. The Nodes also remind us of the path our soul is asking us to follow.

On Tuesday, May 9th, the Lunar Nodes move into the fixed signs of the Leo/Aquarius axis. Since mid-November of 2015, they have been in the mutable signs of Virgo/Pisces. Due to the Lunar Nodes moving primarily in a retrograde motion, they enter this axis at 29° Leo/Aquarius and will remain in these signs for approximately one and a half years.

During this time, the Leo area of your chart will become a more prominent sphere of growth. The Aquarius area of your chart may feel more vulnerable and require attention as you work through challenges there. You may experience a strong shift, what feels like an insistence toward expressing your creative gifts more freely in the Leo arena as you reach your fullest potential in this area of your life.

The last time the Lunar Nodes moved through the Leo/Aquarius axis was between February 2008 and August 2009. At that time, it was the North Node in Aquarius and the South Node in Leo, the opposite of where they are currently moving toward and will be inhabiting May 9th.

The last time the North Node was in Leo and the South Node in Aquarius was between October 1998 and April 2000. Do you remember what was happening in your life during those periods of time? How do circumstances that occurred during those times relate to where you are currently? How can those past occurrences inform the steps you can take in the areas of your life being affected over the next one and a half years?

 

Do you want to learn astrology but don’t know where to begin? Would you like to acquire the knowledge and understanding regarding this complex way of looking at the world? I’ve been referred to as a wonderful, heartfelt teacher and I will help to lead you gently down the path to greater understanding of astrology and your own life path.

KINDNESS WITH INTEGRITY

Monday, May 8, 2017:

Monday’s gracious Libra Moon struggles for balance as she encounters challenging aspects to mighty Pluto, thoughtful Mercury, and uncommon Uranus throughout the day. I understand that you want harmony but keep uppermost in your mind that you cannot create that balanced state of relationships on the back of dishonesty or lack of integrity. If you say yes when your truth is screaming “No”, be clear that you are creating major disharmony, even if your desire is good will.

Make sure that you are crystal clear regarding your answer to any requests made of you. If your true answer to a request is no but you think you SHOULD say yes, pay attention to that red flag! Say ‘No’ emphatically. This is a day when you need to be very clear about what is true for you. Harmony is created through integrity toward yourself and others. There are no shortcuts.

Be kind without selling yourself down the river.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:59 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio in the wee hours of Tuesday morning at 1:01 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 any significant future impact.

 

 

EMPOWERMENT – BLESSED FLOW

Tuesday, May 9, 2017:

Tuesday brings the issues of power and empowerment to the table – front and center! While you slept, the Moon entered Scorpio, bringing your emotions to a deep dive into intensity and passion.

At 2:23 PM EDT, the Sun at 19 degrees Taurus forms a helpful, supportive trine aspect to Pluto at 19 degrees Capricorn. Remember, Pluto represents the process of metamorphosis. When Pluto is involved in a challenging transit or aspect, (a square, an opposition, and sometimes a conjunction), there is struggle and difficulty with the process of deeply significant change. When the aspect is positive, (as in a sextile or a trine), the process is often imbued with deep empowerment and a sense of blessed flow.

If you know the houses in your chart that these planets and aspects fall in, you will have a better idea of where this flow wants to express itself in your life.

Perhaps, a webinar to help you see where these planets and aspects fall in your chart would be helpful. Would you be interested? Let me know!

In the very early hours of Wednesday morning at 1:19 AM EDT, Mercury forms a powerful conjunction with Uranus. The energy of this planet has been working with us for the past week or so and finally, the transit becomes exact. You may find that your mind is focused on demands for freedom, equality, and justice. You may be surprised by ideas and thoughts that come to life over the coming days.

Mercury conjunct Uranus is the beginning of a cycle that screams, “Wake up”! What are you going to do with this one precious life? How can you help in the demand for freedom and equality? Wake up!

 

 

SCORPIO FULL MOON – WAKE UP

Wednesday, May 10, 2017:

Red Girl & Knight by John William Waterhouse via Wiki Commons

While you slept, the conjunction between Mercury and Uranus became exact at 1:19 AM EDT. Pay attention to the demand for freedom of thought and expression. Where do you feel this freedom being hindered? What can you do to wake yourself and others up to what needs to be changed and shifted on this planet? How can you help to bring equality to all?

Do not be overwhelmed; change occurs when we each take tiny steps to support the larger steps of others who are able and willing. Wake up and then take action!

At 5:43 PM EDT, the Lunar Cycle reaches its pinnacle at the powerful Scorpio Full Moon. What seed did you plant at the New Moon two weeks ago? How has that process developed? What intensity has developed and is in clear view at this time?

Read Tuesday’s post about the movement of the Nodal Axis and pay attention to a drive toward expression and the necessity to awaken.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:43 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 1:00 PM EDT on Thursday. 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.

 

 

DEEPER CLARITY BY EVENING

Thursday, May 11, 2017:

On Thursday, the depth and intensity of the Scorpio Moon gives way to the desire for adventure and a more expansive understanding as the Moon enters Sagittarius at 1:00 PM EDT.

However, the lighter sense that Sagittarius generally brings is quickly colored by a blurred understanding of the day’s circumstance when assertive Mars forms an uncomfortable square to murky Neptune at 1:52 PM EDT. This pattern may reflect a loss of perspective, leaving you somewhat confused about the direction you want to go or the path you would like to take. Rest in this fluid state, do not allow it to overwhelm you. Spend a few hours in quiet contemplation.

When cerebral Mercury forms an easy trine aspect to Saturn at 4:14 PM EDT, you are able to see more clearly and understand how your thinking directs the realities of your circumstances and your life. Clarity is welcomed and your mind and communications gain much needed clarity.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Sagittarius at 1:00 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 any significant future impact.

 

 

ENTHUSIASM & FUN

Friday, May 12, 2017:

You may notice that it is much easier to get out of bed this morning than is often the case on a Friday morning.

Dynamic Mars forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to generous Jupiter at 6:18 AM EDT. This energy of expansion and optimism should stay with you for the bulk of the day. You may feel a slight confusion or discomfort around 5:00 PM EDT when the extroverted Sagittarius Moon forms a challenging square to disorienting Neptune. Take this as a suggestion to take a nap before a fun Friday evening adventure.

At 5:58 PM EDT, the Sagittarius Moon forms an exciting sextile aspect to cheery Jupiter encouraging you to entertain, mingle, or somehow expand your social circle.

At 6:45 PM EDT, when opinionated Sagittarius Moon opposes combative Mars, you will do well to pay attention to how you express your more passionate opinions.

It may be easy to speak too loudly or otherwise offend someone with your point of view. Be respectful, watch what you say, and plan for a fun night of social pleasure.

 

LOOK AHEAD

Saturday, May 13, 2017:

Saturday’s explorative Sagittarius Moon moves quietly through the day allowing you to pay attention to the details of the weekend. She is so slow it is almost as though she is saving her energy for evening.

At 5:46 PM EDT, the far-reaching Sagittarius Moon trine unpredictable Uranus, encouraging you to seek inspiration and an exciting adventure to sink your teeth into.

At 6:57 PM EDT, when the Moon joins with deliberate Saturn, you may become aware of more somber outcomes or responsibilities that could be ignited by your adventures. Allow that seriousness to pass (remember, Moon transits pass quickly) and open your thinking to the future.

At 10:15 PM EDT, the Moon trine thoughtful Mercury, allowing you to say and express your ideas openly with enthusiasm and clarity. Enjoy the evening as Sunday will bring with it seriousness and focus on the path ahead.     

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:15 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn in the wee hours of Sunday morning at 1:38 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 any significant future impact.

 

 

FOCUS & PATIENCE

Sunday, May 14, 2017:

When you begin the day, you will immediately be aware of a profound difference in how you feel, and the quality of light within and without. After several days of excitement with the Sagittarius Moon, she has now entered Capricorn bringing you face-to-face with cold, sober reality.

This is a day of thoughtful, deliberate determination. You could spend the day working on any difficult projects that requires focused work and patience.

By the end of the day, you may feel highly accomplished in any number of areas of your life. Perhaps, you should get a jump on the coming week. Make a list of all the things you could do that would assist in a week of ‘easy flow’.

Is there a topic you need to study to be prepared for the week ahead? You could prepare meals or make sure your laundry is done for the upcoming week. This is not a day for frivolous play but a day to focus in order for the coming days to move more smoothly.

If you find yourself with time on your hands, offer your services to help others get move ahead or prepare for the upcoming path.

* 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.

 

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather from August 22, 2016 through August 28, 2016

We can expect an interesting week ahead! This week, Mercury and Venus will conjoin Jupiter in Virgo and the Sun will enter Virgo.

Leaf Fall by Evgeniy Stasenko via Wiki Commons

We must consider the deep meaning of Virgo with so many planets currently residing there. Virgo has a rough reputation and I want to make sure none of you get stuck with that negativity as your understanding of Virgo.

The energy of Virgo (and anyone with a focus in that sign) has the ability to see potential more clearly than others. The criticism that Virgo is so well known for is a result of Virgo seeing what is possible and not accomplishing it as efficiently as one would like. The thing I respect and love the most about Virgo is the fact that whatever it is that Virgo must perfect, within themselves, is done for the service of others. There is nothing selfish in Virgo.

Mars makes contact with both Saturn and Neptune, even as Saturn and Neptune continue their dance which culminates in the third and final square aspect between them which will be exact on September 10th.

Remember that conjunctions are the beginning of a cycle between the two planets involved. This week we have three new such cycles beginning. On Monday, we begin the cycle of expanding our minds, beginning a new study, a new conversation, or a way of viewing the world. This is represented by the conjunction between Mercury and Jupiter.

On Wednesday, we begin a cycle of energizing our struggles and the places we are stuck. This is the cycle between Mars and Saturn, and, on Saturday, we begin a new cycle of expansive love with the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter.

There is both struggle and beauty inherent within this week. Flow with that. Don’t be too hard on yourself or others. Remember, the soft kindness of Virgo is available when we show ourselves kindness and compassion first.

 

SUN ENTERS VIRGO – SETTLING DOWN

Monday, August 22, 2016:

Our minds are sharp as a tack on Monday morning. Consider carefully what you want to focus your attention on. At 5:04 AM EDT, Mercury will conjoin Jupiter planting a seed of expansive visionary thinking and awareness.

Because Mercury is turning retrograde soon (August 30th), this gives us time to implement or refine where we want to focus our new learning or new ways of perceiving the world. Due to the upcoming retrograde, this conjunction will be repeated on September 2nd and October 11th.

At 12:38 PM EDT, the Sun enters Virgo ending the hot season of Leo’s playful expression and bringing us back to earth with the need to get serious as we look forward to the changing season ahead. We are ready for this; ready to slow down, send the kids and ourselves back to school, and begin preparing for the harvest.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:47 AM EDT until 5:20 PM EDT when she enters Taurus further settling us into a quieter slower pace. 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.

 

BUILD STABILITY; CREATE BEAUTY

Tuesday, August 23, 2016:

This is a day to relax into. The Taurus Moon allows a deep, reverent calm throughout the day. With a sextile to Neptune at 11:31 AM EDT, we are able to bring imagination and a warm glow to our building stability.

At 6:43 PM EDT, as the Moon trine Pluto, we are empowered to make slow and steady progress to the dream we hold of a stable life of beauty and love.

Put flowers on the table, light candles, and embody the level of romantic beauty (even if you are alone) that makes your own heart sing.

 

DETERMINATION AND PATIENCE

Wednesday, August 24, 2016:

Wednesday begins with Mars conjunct Saturn at 7:26 AM EDT. This has been a long time coming and I anticipate a positive manifestation of this combination. A conjunction represents the start of a new cycle and the ending of an old cycle. It is important that we slow down and manage any personal impatience in our lives.

The maturity of Saturn combined with the drive of Mars can place us on a path of determination to accomplish things. We cannot rush. Maintaining focus without hurry is what is required. Some of us will settle in for the long haul, making significant effort that will result in significant rewards. Others will experience frustration as desires seem to be stuck in a pattern that feels too slow. Hold steady, understand that what is most worthwhile in our lives takes time and effort. Settle in.

The slow, Taurus Moon makes lovely aspects to Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter throughout the early part of the day. The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:38 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 7:39 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. Find friends and a bit of social fun for the evening

 

NO DECISIONS NEED TO BE MADE

Thursday, August 25, 2016:

Normally, a day with the Moon in chatty Gemini is a light, easy kind of day. Unfortunately, Thursday’s Gemini Moon is involved in stressful considerations with her cohorts.  At 12:30 PM EDT, she opposes Saturn which may leave us feeling overburdened by work and effort, then she opposes Mars at 1:34 PM EDT adding frustration or anger to the mix, when she finally forms a square to confusing Neptune at 2:06 PM EDT.

The whole issue is muddied by simply not knowing which way to turn. It may be important to remind yourself that you do not need to make any decisions today. You may want to simply head to bed early. It is not a bad idea to be well rested for the challenges of Friday.

As in all things remember kindness for yourself and everyone you encounter will smooth the way.

 

FOLLOW YOUR INTUITION TO FIND TRUTH

Friday, August 26, 2016:

Friday comes on the heels of Thursday’s Moon square Neptune where our frustration turned to confusion leaving us ready to sleep early. At 2:56 AM EDT, Mars squares Neptune; this energy has been building and will stay with us for another day. Consider the meaning of these planets and imagine them standing at cross purposes to each other.

Mars represents conscious will, the ability to take action, and determination. Neptune represents imagination and the dissolving of concrete form. You may experience disappointment and frustration due to the lack of clarity about what you really want. You may be suddenly aware that what you thought you wanted does not match your true desires and expectations.

Watch how this plays out in the political arena. We can expect more strange stories and revelations.

The Gemini Moon may feel a bit of disturbance as she locks horns with the planets currently in Virgo. This will pass but you must manage yourself well. Work to NOT say the first thing that comes to mind in any given situation. Watch what you say and do your best to remain detached to the conversations and opinions of others.

BEGIN TO GROW IN LOVE

Saturday, August 27, 2016:

We awake Saturday morning to a Cancer Moon, clearly in the mood for connection and love. You may feel sensitive, sentimental, moody, and wistful. Keep close to family and loved ones.

At 6:28 PM EDT, Venus and Jupiter come together at 27° Virgo. This begins a cycle of growth and expansion of love and our personal values. Our hearts and all that we value seem to grow, expanding to engulf the world.

Show love in all that you do and witness the love reflected in those around you. Offer a simple genuine smile to someone on the street, the young person checking you out at the grocery store, or pouring your coffee at the café. Wherever you encounter anyone in a service job pour love in their direction and accept love in return.

Make it simple and uncomplicated; give and receive abundance; it is easier than you may think.

 

SIMPLICITY AND LOVING KINDNESS

Sunday, August 28, 2016:

The Moon continues her path through the nurturing waters of Cancer on Sunday. During the afternoon hours, she will encounter serious snags as she opposes Pluto at 1:38 PM EDT and squares Uranus at 5:42 PM EDT. We are reminded again of the profound change that has occurred in every area of our lives and the world. However, we are not out of the woods yet.

Allow worry and concern to flow pass without engaging. These are simple transits of the Moon and will pass harmlessly unless we engage them with stress or anxiety. Time alone is valuable for contemplation and healing. Set intentions of loving kindness and give yourself and others the benefit of the doubt in all things. Keep complications at bay to allow the day to unfold without stress or agitation.

Did you see the post I sent out several days ago? In case you missed it, let me give you a quick recap.

I managed to run afoul of the law with some of the images I’ve used. I have tried to choose images that are old enough that no copyright exists but apparently a few mistakes were made. The solution (along with paying the fine) is to stop using any images from the Internet!

I am asking you, my dear readers, to send me original pieces of your artwork that you would love to share with the world! Anything that I use will be credited to you and if I am using them on my blog I will link to your website.

If you have questions or want more conversation, contact me directly!

Onward to the days of this week!

 

 

A MIXED BAG OF EXCITEMENT AND LACK OF CLARITY

Monday, May 25, 2015:

Monday certainly gives us a great deal to think about.

On the simplest level, we have the First Quarter Moon; a time to step up and take action on what we want and are working toward. If you planted a seed of sensual intent at the New Moon on Sunday, May 17, now is the time to take action as you move toward the development of the full expression of your sensuality.

The Moon is in Virgo throughout the day allowing us to work efficiently with detail, humility, and discernment.

At 1:09 PM EDT, Venus squares Uranus. On March 15, 2015, Venus and Uranus came together to begin a cycle of unexpected excitement in relationship or our personal values. Look to your journal or calendar to determine what began at that time; in what way were your values awakened?

Remember, Uranus is often called ‘The Awakener’. With this cycle, we ask where we are awakening to a more expansive and unusual sense of beauty. This is the First Quarter square of this cycle, and we must take a definitive step forward to fully develop the deep value of our awakening.

At 7:37 PM EDT, Mars squares Neptune suggesting confusion, lack of clarity, deep suffering, or a spiritual/mystical element to our sexuality. During this cycle, we bring strength and energy to our spiritual path and spirituality to our sexual path. This cycle began in January of 2015 and now asks that we make a commitment and a serious step toward its development. Perhaps we are being asked to develop a tantric sexual practice or simply to write poetry or make music.

Monday is a complicated day with the excitement of Uranus impacting our relationships and our values. At the same time, Neptune brings a soft edge to our sexuality or other use of physical energy. If you’re hearing mixed messages from the Universe, don’t be surprised and be patient.

 

Remember that Mercury is retrograde; so we are working on cleaning up parts of our lives that we have left undone over recent months. We may not feel up to the expectations that others have for us, or even our own expectation of ourselves. Be kind and patience to yourself and others.

 

RESOLVING A PAST ISSUE

Tuesday, May 26, 2015:

On Tuesday, we will still be under the influence of the transits of Venus to Uranus and Mars to Neptune. As with yesterday, you will want to honor both the lack of clarity and the excitement through mindfulness, acceptance and understanding.

The Moon is in Virgo all day forming a trine to Pluto at 11:36 AM EDT and a sextile to Venus at 10:22 PM EDT. This suggests a day of accomplishing practical issues within the context of work and relationship. Even with Mercury currently retrograde, this could be an excellent day for communication with a partner.

You are not going to want to begin a new conversation. However, if a conversation or topic that the two of you have struggled with in the past rears its head on Tuesday, there is great support for coming to new understandings and agreements that will highly support this relationship reaching deeper levels of its potential.

Don’t shy away from significant communications. Yes, be clear you are being heard correctly. Remember, it is not always enough to say what needs to be said, it is also your responsibility to make sure that what you have articulated was heard and understood correctly. Double check what the other person heard.

At 10:22 PM EDT, following a sextile to Venus the Virgo Moon is VOC*until she enters Libra at 5:42 PM EDT on Wednesday, May 27th.

AN EVENING FOR PLEASURE

Wednesday, May 27, 2015:

At 6:36 AM EDT, Mercury conjunct Mars asks us to revisit an argument or passionate communication from late April. Do not seek resolution at this time, there are long-range implications here. For now, seek to understand your own position and the position of others.

You do not need to firmly defend your position; you only need to understand where it is at this moment in time. Consider that your anger or passion is likely triggered by something that has very little to do with the other person.

It will be mid-July before you find resolution and are able to fully begin a new cycle of passion within your thinking and communications.

The Moon is VOC*in Virgo until she enters Libra at 5:42 PM EDT. Wednesday evening should be pleasant for socializing or spending time with a loved one. We want to please and be pleased. Our diplomatic skills shine.

Don’t spend the evening home alone unless you’re involved in a project of creating something of beauty. If you are an artist, you may want a model to work with or a partner to simply keep you company in the studio. Enjoy this evening, it should be a good one.

 

BRINGING PLEASURE TO OTHERS

Thursday, May 28, 2015:

Thursday offers up another very pleasant day! The entire week has so much Neptune energy that even without an exact aspect we are functioning under its influence. Think of rose-colored glasses, the softness of music and poetry, and the peace of deep meditation.

The Moon is in Libra throughout the day and makes lovely, free flowing aspects to the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Gemini. We are deeply curious about those around us. We want to express ourselves; to be seen and to delight in conversation and connection.

It may seem easy to have conversations but do keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde. Remember as well that Libra wishes to maintain peace at all costs. Try to understand what is on the level below words.

 

LISTEN TO THE TREES SING                    

Friday, May 29, 2015:

Friday once again brings our attention to a lack of clarity. Our communications may do best to be of a subtle, indirect, and even intangible nature. The Moon in Libra, very much wanting to please, connects with both Pluto and Uranus reminding us that we have not yet left the challenging transformations of the past few years behind.

At 3:00 AM EDT, Mercury squares Neptune asking us to consider that our learning is coming through more indirect ways into our life. Do you find your worldview or intellect expanding in ways that are somehow impossible to put a finger on or understand with your rational mind? Allow yourself to learn through subtle indirect information. If you go outside today, you may hear the trees sing!

At 4:21 PM EDT, following a square to Venus, the Moon is VOC* until she enters Scorpio early Saturday morning at 5:34 AM EDT. Relax into Friday evening without expectations; listen to music, watch a film, enjoy a poetry reading.

INTANGIBLE DEPTH SEEKS TRUST

Saturday, May 30, 2015:

By the time you awake on Saturday morning, the Moon is in Scorpio, suggesting a day of emotional depth and intensity. The Sun conjunct Mercury at 9° Gemini at 12:55 PM EDT. There does not seem to be much space between who we are and what we think.

Our thoughts may be moving more quickly than usual at this time. With Mercury retrograde and the fact that Mercury rules Gemini, this can bring a great deal of stress to the activity of our minds today.

Don’t neglect your meditation practice if you have one. If you don’t have one, begin one as it will assist you in more ways than you can imagine.

With so much Neptune activity this week, be aware of the situations you find yourself in, particularly if they involve alcohol or recreational drugs of any kind.

Early Sunday morning, the Sun will square Neptune, further highlighting this issue.

Spend time Saturday evening with people you fully trust. We all enjoy some risk-taking in our lives but this is not the night to do that! Stay with trusted friends, go deep in that trust, and allow an intangible depth of passion.

 

SPIRITUAL CONNECTION – MYSTICAL EXPANSION

Sunday May 31, 2015:

Sunday is a powerfully Neptunian day. This will be best used for seeking spiritual connection, love, and mystical expansion.

Emotionally, we want to connect with others and yet we must do this with a very soft touch. Spend time on the water if you can, look for beauty in art and poetry.

This is not a day for sporting events or house repairs. An afternoon movie, music recital, poetry reading, or community meditation, or selfless service to others would be valuable and supportive ways to spend this day.

 

_________________________________________________________
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, May 26, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Virgo) following a sextile to Venus at 10:22 PM EDT, until she enters Libra on Wednesday, May 27th at 5:42 PM EDT.

Friday, May 29, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Libra) following a square to Venus at 4:21 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio on Saturday at 5:34 PM 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.
