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.

__________________________________________________________
* 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: February 23, 2015 through March 1, 2015

She Rushed Out of the Palace and Came to the Upper World by Warwick Goble

She Rushed Out of the Palace and Came to the Upper World by Warwick Goble

This is a busy week with much activity!

Early this week , the Sun square Saturn encourages us to take a serious step forward on whatever began in November.

On Tuesday, Venus trine Saturn stabilizes the same issue and showing us clearly how far we have come since that time.

On Wednesday, Mars trine Saturn brings stability to the places that are edgy and hot within us, and to our situation.

We also begin a new cycle between the Sun and Neptune. This is a one-year cycle bringing us to the closure of a dream, fantasy, or suffering that began last year. Even as this cycle ends a new one-year cycle, with a new dream begins!

The first two days of the week offer a time to say goodbye, to let go, to prepare for starting the new cycle.
As we reach toward the ending of the week, we are able to tap into higher energies to move us forward.

 

Monday, February 23, 2015:
Monday brings us a very active Moon in Taurus going VOC* at 9:58 PM EST following a square to Jupiter. This is a day of deliberation, a day to explore the path ahead from a seriously considered position.

At 8:55 AM EST, the Sun squares Saturn and asks that we look at a story that began in mid-November 2014. Pull out your calendars and/or journals and ask yourself what of significance began in your life at that time. The storyline that began then now asks you to make a commitment to taking a definitive step forward. If you know your chart, look at what planets you have near 4° of mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces). This is where you will most strongly feel this energy. The Sun is at 4° Pisces and Saturn is at 4° Sagittarius. You may feel compelled to take serious action in a certain direction or you may feel that something or someone is holding you back. Do you feel your freedom is being restricted?

This is a serious day, asking for serious action and resulting in serious accomplishment. The results of the actions you take now will be clear in late May 2015.

Do your best on Monday to step out of your own small self-concern. Try to make eye contact with others and offer a helping hand. The smallest kindness can change the entire course of a person’s life. This is not time to get stuck in your own solitary concerns. Show kindness even if the other person doesn’t.

 

Tuesday, February 24, 2015:
Tuesday the Taurus Moon is VOC* all day until she enters Gemini shortly before midnight. This is a day that begs for relaxation and self care.

On Monday, we sought action on what began in November 2014. On Tuesday, we will be working with the same story, only our perspective shifts slightly. If you haven’t determined and executed a deliberate forward action, don’t delay.

Venus trine Saturn at 9:57 AM EST asks us to consider the steps to be taken and clearly acknowledge how far we have come and how much growth has occurred since November. Has the growth involved a new relationship, your personal values, or something else that holds great value to you? Rest in the knowledge that you are on a path with deep purpose.

 

Wednesday, February 25, 2015:
Wednesday is a busy day with the Gemini Moon highly activated with her engagement with many of her sister planets. At 12:14 PM EST, the First Quarter Square between the Sun and the Moon is exact. You may experience conflict between your analytical mind and your desire to simply fantasize, imagine, and feel your way through the day.

As the evening approaches, we have two significant aspects (impacting us for several days) becoming exact.

She Took Up the Jewel in Her Hand by Warwick Goble

She Took Up the Jewel in Her Hand by Warwick Goble

At 10:08 PM EST, Mars trine Saturn and we are provided with powerful energy and courage to calm and stabilize our more serious situations. With each of these planets in Fire signs, there may be enthusiasm, courage, and fun involved. If what you see is high drama, walk the other way. This cycle began in August 2014; if we encountered a restriction at that time, now it opens and the path is clear.

Just before midnight, the Sun conjuncts Neptune and we begin a new cycle of illuminating our dreams and bringing warmth to our suffering. The cycle that is ending now began in late February 2014. Where is 7degrees Pisces in your chart? This is where a new dream begins.

Allow yourself to dream and encourage the dreams of others. If you are suffering, practice self-compassion. If others are suffering, rest with them in a state of open compassion. Listen.

 

Thursday, February 26, 2015:
Thursday we are likely to remain in a continued state of dreamy compassion associated with Wednesday’s Sun conjunct Neptune.

The VOC* Moon lasts the entire day from 3:43 AM EST until the Moon enters Cancer at 7:50 AM EST on Friday.
Our continued dreaminess could develop into nostalgia for the past. What are you releasing out of sheer necessity and yet the releasing brings deep suffering?

As we let go of what has been important in our lives, we experience a mixture of excitement for the future and deep sadness for the past. Whatever it is you are releasing, let it go with love and acknowledgment for the importance and value it has brought you. Releasing something or someone is a matter of opening your hands and letting go. You do not need to push it away, hold onto resentment or anger. Say goodbye with love and gratitude. Release.

 

Friday, February 27, 2015:
After the very long VOC* Moon yesterday, we are relieved to have the Moon enter Cancer at 7:50 AM EST. As we alternate between these long days of Moon VOC* (created by so many planets being in the early degrees) with days without, it may create difficulty maintaining consistency in certain areas of our lives. We have days that we’re moving forward just fine and then days it feels like were swimming through mud. Expect Friday to be a fine day.

Keep close to home this evening. The Cancer Moon encourages us to slow down, spend time with family and love ones, and enjoy quiet activities of connection during the evening hours. With so many planets now in Fire Signs, and the building energy of the Uranus Pluto Square, life is moving very quickly. Changes come without warning. If love, compassion, and care for others are your top priorities, you are on the right path.

 

Saturday, February 28, 2015:
With the exact connection between Uranus and Pluto so close (March 16), the energy of change, power, and transformation is strongly activated each time the Moon transits a Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn). The Moon is in Cancer throughout the day squaring Uranus at 11:50 AM EST and opposing Pluto at 12:53 PM EST. This is intensely powerful energy that will require you to hold steady and simply ride the wave of change.

The Moon becomes VOC* following the opposition to Pluto at 12:53 AM EST until she enters Leo on Sunday evening at 6:34 PM. This is an extremely long VOC* Moon. If possible, keep close to home, engage with those you love, and maintain a strong sense of compassion and kindness toward others. Something may come to light that is unexpected and difficult to get your mind around.

Compassion and kindness toward yourself and others is more important this weekend than you realize.

Saturday is the last day in February and we are so close to the final culmination (for now) of this part of the Uranus Pluto story. This story is bigger than our lives. It began in 1965 and has been struggling to push forward for several years now. It will come to full illumination in 2046.

Pay attention to what you encounter now, any internal or external struggle will be with you powerfully over coming weeks.

 

Sunday March 1, 2015:
The Moon is VOC* in Cancer until she enters Leo at 6:34 PM EST. Keep your senses open and aware for an unusual opportunity that may be offered. Look for a new perspective on the area of your life that has expanded over the past 6 to 8 months. The first week of August 2014 brought huge expansive energy to our thoughts, our spirit, and hearts. If you look at what began at that time, you

Urashima by Warwick Goble

will see an area of full illumination now.

Also, look back to April 2014. Can you remember something that was stimulating, aggravating, or brought anxiety or excitement to your thoughts and awareness? Whatever began at that time, you have come a long way since then. Now you are able to work with the energy of final releasing. Explore ways to release in a healthy manner, to let it go for the next cycle of growth within your mind that will begin in April 2015.

If you know what these cycles represent, I would love to hear from you. Please tell me how this is playing out in your circumstance and your life.

__________________________________
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; times 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*!

Monday, February 23, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Taurus) following a square to Jupiter at 9:58 PM EST and ending shortly before midnight on Tuesday when she enters Gemini.

Thursday, February 26, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Gemini) following a sextile to Jupiter at 3:43 AM EST and ending on Friday at 7:50 AM EST when she enters Cancer.

Saturday figure 28, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in cancer) following an opposition to Pluto at 12:53 PM EST and ending on Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 6:43 PM when she enters Leo.
