Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: January 29, 2018 through February 4, 2018

“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”

FOSTER KINDNESS

Monday, January 29, 2018:

Monday morning begins with a dreamy trine aspect from the deeply sensitive Cancer Moon to Neptune at 10:19 AM EST. You may find it difficult to face the realities of the workday. Much of your consciousness longs to remain floating in Dreamtime.

At 9:34 PM EST, the Moon forms an opposition to Pluto. This could trigger a return to difficult interpersonal patterns that you hoped were in the past. Old resentments may raise their ugly heads. Consider that what you are reacting to may have little to do with the current situation and much more to do with patterns from the past.

Head to bed early, don’t allow this quickly passing transit to impact the week.

Keep attuned to and foster the protective side of the sensitive, nurturing Cancer Moon.

 

ANTICIPATE OPENING

Tuesday, January 30, 2018:

With a pre-dawn, challenging square aspect formed from the Moon to Uranus at 5:45 AM EST, you may awake on Tuesday morning with a bit of anxiety from an interaction before sleep or uncomfortable dreams. Allow that stress to pass and move into the day.

At 1:53 PM EST, the Moon allows us to set aside our moodiness as she enters playful Leo. It is true that you will not have access to nurturing type sensitivity, but the tradeoff is that you will likely feel more optimistic and upbeat.

At 6:12 PM EST with a lovely trine from the Moon to Mars (in Sagittarius), you are able to express your generosity and creativity in an open, playfully dramatic manner.

Wednesday morning will bring the Leo Full Moon; enjoy the sense of ‘almost there’! Think of a flower about to open, the petals straining within the bud. Where do you feel that anticipation in your life now?

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:41 AM EST until she enters Leo at 1:53 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

LEO FULL MOON: BALANCE FEMININE ENERGIES

Wednesday, January 31, 2018:

January ends on a powerful note. At 8:27 AM EST, we come to the Leo Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse which falls at 11° Leo. A Lunar Eclipse deepens the intensity of the Full Moon.

Madalena Cabral by Ana Cabral Campos via Wiki Media

Each Full Moon brings us to a point of clarity. The direction of what began two weeks ago at the New Moon should show its face clearly. Wednesday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is aligned with an opposition to Venus, the planet that relates to the feminine principle, as does the Moon itself. Venus represents the feminine ideals of beauty, resources, and the ability to form loving partnerships. The Moon represents the feminine ideals of mothering, protecting, and nurturing. Remember, this has nothing whatsoever to do with gender; all of us, regardless of gender, have the Moon and Venus in our charts. We each share both feminine and masculine attributes within our personal patterns. With an opposition between these two energies, this aspect suggests the importance of considering how these sides of your feminine nature seek reconciliation.

Look at the opposing houses that are ruled by Leo and Aquarius in your personal chart. This is where you are currently seeking this balance. Opposing houses can be seen as two sides of the same coin. Bring them together. If you do not know your chart well enough to understand this, simply consider where in your life you need to bring balance to personal issues vs collective issues, generosity vs restraint, ownership vs freedom.

At 8:39 PM EST, Mercury, the planet of your thinking mind, enters wildly innovative Aquarius. Mercury will remain in Aquarius until she enters Pisces on February 18, 2018. Enjoy and take advantage of the sharpness of mind that is available as Mercury moves through this Fixed Air Sign. Aquarius is considered the sign of genius, not because of extreme intelligence but because it allows the mind to move in directions and go into places it has never gone before. During this time, allow your mind and wild imagination free reign!

HOLD STEADY

Thursday, February 1, 2018:

Thursday begins with the Moon still in flashy, dramatic Leo. However, she is much quieter than normal, responding in a subdued manner throughout the morning. You would probably prefer to spend the day involved in a personal creative project. By the time the Moon enters Virgo at 2:13 PM EST, you will finally feel ready to pay attention to any necessary details and concentrate on slow, steady effort.

At 8:49 PM EST, the sometimes overly particular Virgo Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mars. It would be quite easy to get into a hotheaded argument that you would soon regret. Let aggravations roll off your back, as long as you don’t engage that energy the evening will settle down.

At 10:21 PM EST, the refined Virgo Moon forms a stabilizing, steadfast trine aspect to Saturn, allowing you to fall asleep with ease and renewal.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:59 AM EST until she enters Virgo at 2:13 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

ANALYSIS AND ADJUSTMENTS

Friday, February 2, 2018:

Friday holds very little astrological activity. In the absence of major planetary movement, we have the Moon to consider. Remember, that the Moon takes approximately 2 ½ days to transit through each of the signs of the zodiac. Life cooperates with us when we cooperate with life. Go with the energy of the sign the Moon is passing through.

The one aspect the Virgo Moon makes is an opposition to Neptune at 11:29 AM EST, this brings some challenge to your ability to find clarity in the details. Take a dreaming break and by mid-afternoon, clarity will return.

The Moon is in Virgo, asking that we find a steady pace of activities that focus on meticulous efficiency and even nitpicking detail. Focus on tasks that require concentration and analysis. Look for practical solutions and do your best to avoid criticism and judgment of yourself and others.

Look carefully at your health regime and make adjustments as necessary. This is not an evening that would be much fun for social playfulness. You are more inclined to staying home and puttering with home projects or preparations for the weeks ahead.

COME TOGETHER

Saturday, February 3, 2018:

With the Moon in Virgo early in the day, you can continue with your mundane projects and tasks (like cleaning out the closets and pruning your houseplants). However, there is a good deal more energy available as you move into the day.

At 10:57 AM EST, with a lovely sextile aspect between Mercury (the planet of mind and communication) and Mars (the planet of direct action) you are offered an opportunity to speak your truth and take action on your words. Innovative ideas have the opportunity to unfold into wise and optimistic action.

At 4:47 PM EST, the Moon enters Libra suggesting the desire for a more social evening ahead. With the Moon in refined Libra, you may find yourself more aware and concerned with creating harmony in all personal interactions. You want to create pleasure and be appropriate.

This may be a challenging evening to be clear about what you truly want for yourself but an easier evening to find consensus. Remember, Libra is represented by the scales and all sides of every issue must be examined and balanced. This is a great time for romance and friendly social gatherings. Come together.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:06 AM EST until she enters Libra at 4:47 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

OVERINDULGENCE IS NOT SO BAD 🙂

Sunday, February 4, 2018:

Perhaps, you went overboard with your romantic or social desire to please others on Saturday evening. Maybe you find yourself on Sunday morning in a situation where you and a friend or partner are busy overindulging yourself and each other. Are you are not looking honestly at what you need to do to grow in wisdom and understanding of your relationship and how it fits into the overall vision for your life? This is not something you need to do anything about right now, just being aware of it will help you to make different choices as you move forward in this particular relationship.

Early in the afternoon, with a square from the Libra Moon to Saturn, you may be cranky and simply need time alone. Give yourself that time and be ready to come back to a friend, partner, or lover later in the afternoon for a lovely evening. The Moon forms a delightful trine aspect to Sun at 9:36 PM EST, ending the day on a note of support and love.

 

__________________________________________________________

* 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.

UNUSUAL BELIEFS

Monday, December 26, 2016:

On Monday, you may experience some emotional fallout; perhaps a reaction to the overdose of sweetness and connection from the past few days. You may be anxious to get back to your regular routines. It would be easy to fall into old passive aggressive or cranky patterns of behavior as the day begins.

Go for a walk or take some form of exercise if you feel any agitation. Expending physical energy is a good way to shift this. It will not last long.

At 1:35 PM EST, Jupiter opposes Uranus. This is the first of three “hits” of this highly significant transit. The second “hit” is in March of 2017 and the third will occur in September of 2017.

Think back to something that began in your life in 2010, something that spoke to the expansion of the unusual. Perhaps, you began to understand a belief system that was new or unusual to your way of thinking at the time. Maybe you traveled somewhere that has changed how you experience yourself and the world. Whatever began then is now worthy of renewed contemplation. What has the seed you planted back then brought to you?

Whatever began in 2010 is now fully illuminated and ready to be brought out into the light of full view. Beliefs that have grown internally can no longer be denied. Show the truth of who you are now.

At 11:18 PM EST, Mercury sextile Neptune; allow your thoughts to drift and be open to the dreams that are offered.

 

 

DEVELOPING COURAGE

Tuesday, December 27, 2016:

The first influence of the day is a sextile between the serious Capricorn Sun and dynamic Mars who is trying to understand the best way to express himself while moving through the sensitive sign of Pisces. This aspect speaks of possibilities.

Think back to June of 2015. Did something occur where you developed assertiveness or courage at that time? If so, you are being asked now to consider how you will continue that process; perhaps, developing more courage in a new circumstance beginning in July 2017.

Perhaps, it was different for you. Did you become angry or aggressive toward someone or something at that time (June 2015)? If so, now you are given the opportunity to release that anger. It is time to let it go and move on. Is there an apology that needs to be made or some other communication to help settle this issue?

The Sagittarius Moon brings mixed messages throughout the day. Excitement and enthusiasm in the earlier part of the day leads to a slump around 4:00 PM EST that then lightens up considerably after 8:00 PM EST.

Time spent alone on solitary projects between 4:00 and 8:00 PM EST will help you maintain an optimistic expansive view of your world and those who encounter.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:45 PM EST until she enters Capricorn on Wednesday morning at 10:12 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.

EXPLANATIONS AND UNDERSTANDING

Wednesday, December 28, 2016:

Wednesday morning begins slowly, shifting into serious contemplations when the Moon enters Capricorn at 10:12 AM EST.

With the careful Capricorn Sun joining with perceptive Mercury at 1:47 PM EST, please pay attention to your conversations on Wednesday afternoon.

With Mercury retrograde, make sure that you listen carefully and make an effort to understand other points of view. Be clear as you share your viewpoint. Are there explanations that will assist others in understanding you? Do you need explanations from others? No defensiveness on either side is required.

At 6:05 PM EST, Mercury sextile Mars offers you an opportunity to more deeply understand your own motivations and those of others.

We are currently in the Dark Phase of the Moon; go inward to understand your own motivations.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:45 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Capricorn on Wednesday morning at 10:12 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.

CAPRICORN NEW MOON – BUILD INTEGRITY

Thursday, December 29, 2016:

Uranus turns direct on Thursday at 4:29 AM EST. Since Uranus began his retrograde on July 29th, we have gained awareness of the perverse revolutionary cracks in our cultural system. As Uranus moves forward and picks up speed in the coming weeks, our collective awareness and understanding grows. We begin to see a new direction for our personal and collective revolution.

The Capricorn New Moon is exact at 1:54 AM EST.

Please take time to do a simple New Moon ritual. You will want to complete your ritual before Friday morning.

The Capricorn New Moon brings powerful energy for the development of responsibility, maturity, and integrity. Set an intention regarding the ability to stabilize your life and ambitions through maturity and serious considerations.
Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple.

Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming cycle. Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you want to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.
Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.
Today’s New Moon at 7° Capricorn insists that you plant a seed of solid reality and that we prepare ourselves to grow in discipline, responsibility, and prudent integrity.

 

 

SEEING THE DREAM

Friday, December 30, 2016:

Ideally, Friday will be a day of rest. The Capricorn Moon is VOC* all day until she enters the quirky sign of Aquarius at 8:29 PM EST. If you’ve rested properly throughout the day, this should be a fun evening of entertainment with friends. Be careful not to wear yourself out before New Year’s Eve.

At 6:24 PM EST, the serious Capricorn Sun sextile Neptune, helping you relax into the inspired internal changes that have occurred over the past year. Look back to a dream that you set in motion in late February of 2016. What you thought you were creating at that time is now released gently in order to prepare for the next step of that dream. It will be fully released in the beginning of March 2017. If your eyes are open now, you will begin to see the barest outline of the new dream coming into focus.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:07 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 8:29 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.

WILD MIND

Saturday, December 31, 2016:

The final day of the year is interesting as there are no major aspects at all.

The Moon travels unimpeded between 1° and 14° Aquarius. As the Moon moves through the signs of the zodiac, she sets the emotional tone of our days. The Moon changes sign approximately every 2 ½ days.

While the Moon is in Aquarius, you will find yourself more concerned with humanity and less concerned with individual people. Aquarius is a visionary sign and sees the big picture from a relatively detached perspective.

This is a time to gather with like-minded acquaintances for intellectual connections and collaborations. Ideas and thoughts can go in unusual directions while seeking others with similar vision.

Envision your life as you wish it to be with no restrictions from others. You seek and long for a sense of freedom. Give yourself and each other the space to explore your own wild mind.

 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Sunday, January 1, 2017:

As we celebrate the New Year on Saturday night, shortly after midnight, Mars will join with Neptune, beginning a cycle of energizing your compassionate understanding of this mystical world we live in. It could also energize you to drink more than you need to!

When you wake up on Sunday morning, it will be clear which way you played this. In many ways, you can use this transit to support you in the upcoming two years. This could be the time to finally face and end a long-term dependency on substances. You could find the courage to face your demons and create great works of music or art.

Think of what can be created when you bring together inspiration and courage. Plant a seed.

The Moon continues through Aquarius; spend time in the company of others who support you to your highest good. Offer your highest good to others.

__________________________________________________________
* 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*.

”Dance Me To The End Of Love”

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

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

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

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

~LEONARD COHEN

TAURUS FULL MOON: INDULGE YOUR SENSES

Monday, November 14, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

TAP INTO CREATIVE THINKING

Tuesday, November 15, 2016:

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

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

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

Wednesday, November 16, 2016:

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

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

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

 

ATTENTION ON LOVE

Thursday, November 17, 2016:

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

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

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

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

 

INSPIRED WHIMSY

Friday, November 18, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

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

ELUSIVE INSPIRATION

Saturday, November 19, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

 

SPREAD HOPE

Sunday, November 20, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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.
