“There is something out there. Astrology is like a game of chess with an invisible partner. We set out the board and the rules, make a move, and then find that the pieces are moving themselves, as if by an invisible hand.”

A SIMPLE CHANGE OF FOCUS

Monday, October 15, 2018:

As the week begins, pause to consider what you learned over the weekend. As you ended the day on Sunday, the Capricorn Moon joined with authoritative Saturn (Capricorn’s ruler). A serious contemplation enters the week with you.

As the Moon is waxing, steadily growing day by day, she forms lovely supportive sextile aspects to Mercury, Venus, and Neptune throughout the day. Whatever lesson you took from the weekend settles into your heart and you are able to begin the week with a renewed clarity of your responsibilities and your willingness to work diligently with them.

At 4:20 PM EDT, Mercury joins with still retrograding Venus in deeply intense Scorpio. Spend time contemplating reality. Consider your own responsibility in your dissatisfaction regarding partnerships and finances. It is time to make the effort to shift your thinking to a place of acceptance and understanding going forward.

Could the real problem be your own commitment to being dissatisfied? This is a day when a simple change of focus can turn everything around.

 

 

FACE THE CHALLENGE

Tuesday, October 16, 2018:

You may feel out of sorts in the very early hours of the morning. The serious Capricorn Moon joins forces with Pluto creating a heaviness that may follow you into the day. Don’t hold onto it, allow it to pass without engaging in difficulties with others.

As that passes, we come to the First Quarter Moon phase at 2:02 PM EDT. Whatever you began last week at the New Moon is asking for further attention. What do you need to do to push forward with an intended agenda? There may be a clear division between what you want to do and what you know you should do.

You may feel an uncomfortable pull between two choices. Do what you need to in order to compromise with yourself. The effort required in this internal struggle is actually what is the most important. With the Moon in Capricorn, you may well need to lean in the direction of the choice that requires the most effort and work. Laziness is not an option.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* after 5:50 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 3:35 AM EDT on Wednesday morning. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

INDEPENDENCE

Wednesday, October 17, 2018:

In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the Moon enters inventive, unpredictable Aquarius. With the Moon in Aquarius, you may find your thinking moves into less conventional areas. Your thoughts may seek wild innovations and unusual inventive ideas.

This is a good time to gather with others who do not think along conventional lines. Your emotions are far less personal and you are able to view the world from a cooler more detached perspective. You are less interested in personal issues and more drawn to considerations of the plight of humanity as a whole.

You may feel a bit alienated from those around you and in the later part of the day you may encounter issues in personal relationships. With Venus retrograde, consider how your most independent thinking is creating challenges in your intimate relationship. You are unlikely to be in the mood for compromise.

Spend the evening alone or with your less personal, more intellectual acquaintances. Personal independence is deeply important on Wednesday.

 

 

Announcement: ASTROLORE is preparing to implement a rate hike for new clients following Venus’ retrograde in mid-November.

If you want to be grand-parented in at the current rate, please make your appointment today! 

As always, contact me if you have questions or concerns. 

 

 

SEEK A BROAD PERSPECTIVE

Thursday, October 18, 2018:

Once again, as with Wednesday, you may not be interested in intimacy or close connections, much preferring independence and a wider perspective on humanity in general.

As the Aquarius Moon joins forces with Mars at 5:50 AM EDT, you may have to take steps to resist anger toward those who have opposing views to your own. It is probably best to keep your opinions to yourself and simply allow the issues to fade away.

Following that cranky morning zing, the rest of the day is relatively quiet.

With the Moon in Aquarius, you will seek freedom from people or situations that feel even a bit claustrophobic or otherwise restrictive. This is a day to engage with your more unusual friends or the folks in your social circle whose opinions help you to develop your personal world-view. Your focus is likely to be objective and you are more interested in what is happening collectively than personally. You are able to open your thinking to new ways of understanding the world.

Enjoy time with others, engage in intellectual conversations about the state of the world, and consider what you can do to help the suffering of others. Allow for an objective detachment from personal intimacies.

 

 

PAY ATTENTION

Friday, October 19, 2018:

Friday should be an interesting day to pay attention to how you are using and engaging your mind. Mercury, the planet that represents our thought processes and communications, begins the day with a flowing trine aspect to imaginative, elusive Neptune. Do not get too attached to your thoughts and be careful how you use your words. Misunderstandings could happen easily as Neptune often suggests that things are not as they seem to be. If you hear something that sounds too good (or too rough) to be true, don’t take it at face value. On the other hand, this is a great morning to use your imagination, to spin fun tales of illusion or poetry.

At 1:23 PM EDT when Mercury squares Mars, you may find that the lack of clarity or strong imagination has gotten twisted around in a manner that is causing you difficulties. Verbal anger or aggression could result but doesn’t have to… instead find within yourself the courage to speak a truth that is deeply important to you.

At 4:21 PM EDT, the Moon leaves detached Aquarius behind to enter mystical, idealistic Pisces. As the Moon passes through Pisces, you may feel called to rest or dream the evening away. You can go with the flow and utilize this sense of watery spaciousness by delving into music, poetry, meditation, or other spiritual concerns.

Use your imagination and take the opportunity to dream.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* from 8:28 AM EDT until she entries Pisces at 4:21 PM EDT.  When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

ALLOW DREAMS TO MOVE YOU

Saturday, October 20, 2018:

Don’t expect to accomplish much during this dreamy, sensitive weekend unless you are an artist, a poet, or a musician. With the Moon moving through Pisces, you will likely feel softer, more adaptable, sensitive, and vulnerable than usual. Remember this as you engage with others. They may put on a brave face but underneath they are deeply aware of their human susceptibilities.

Make eye contact with those you meet as you go about your day. You are more apt to see the soul beneath the surface.

Find an emotional retreat if you are able. You may be drawn to water, poetry, and music. Compassion, intuition, and imagination are easily tapped into. Enjoy a movie, a glass of wine, or time on your meditation cushion. Sleep and rest, allow dreams to move you.

 

 

REST AND DREAM

Sunday, October 21, 2018:

The cosmic movement and planetary impacts on Sunday are relatively quiet. The Moon passes through Pisces, forming lovely aspects to Mercury, Pluto, and Jupiter.

Do not seek and accomplishment as you are likely called to rest or dream the day away.  Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, but deeply emotional energies. This will be a good day for meditation, spending time on the water, allowing yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watching movies, or making music.

Enjoy the rest and sweetness that this provides. If you have things that must be done this may feel uncomfortable. Do your best to go with the flow. Enjoy a sense of watery spaciousness by delving into music, poetry, meditation, or other spiritual concerns.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* after 7:48 PM EDT until she enters Aries at 2:59 AM EDT on Monday morning. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

POWERFUL VOICE; ELUSIVE BEAUTY

Monday, May 7, 2018:

The week starts off with a lot of astrological activity as though to make up for the quiet week we have just completed. Monday begins with a disagreement between Mercury, the planet of reason, and Pluto, the planet of power and darkness. Watch for conversations that involve deep challenges to your beliefs. Take a step forward on a conversation or study that began in late January 2018. Speak with full awareness of the words you choose. Listen with that same clarity.

If there is a power struggle, consider who holds the power. If they do, be prepared to side-step the pressure they bring. If you are the one holding the power, make sure you bring integrity and kindness to the conversation.

More complications ensue as beautiful Venus, the planet of values, resources, and love, forms a challenging square to Neptune, the planet that often bewilders us with its elusive qualities. Stay away from the booze and any shady financial dealings. Make sure you are not deluding yourself in money or love. Take time to appreciate beauty, create a work of art or something else of value, meditate, sing.

You may find yourself restless at bedtime with the 3rd Quarter Square of the Moon phase exact at 10:09 PM EDT. As the cycle progresses and the light wanes, what do you need to begin the process of releasing? With the Moon in Aquarius, look beyond the constraints of conventional thought. Consider the value of minimalism.

 

 

SETTING GUIDEPOSTS

Tuesday, May 8, 2018:

Tuesday is likely a day of adjustment after the multiple activities of Monday. This is a day to settle into deeper thought and a more inspired understanding of beauty and value.

The evening brings the steadfast Taurus Sun opposing Jupiter, the planet of belief and expansion. You may notice renewed clarity regarding your own path to higher understanding. What began to expand in late October 2017? Watch for a new story or a renewed story, regarding the issues of the #MeToo movement. Women are indeed, on the rise. Watch for it.

The Moon is in progressive Aquarius helping you to detach from worry about what the neighbors (family, friends, or whomever) might think or expect of you. You are able to set your own pace, to engage in original progressive thinking and planning for the path ahead. You understand that the path you plan is not for your feet to trod alone, you push forward into the future setting guideposts for those who follow.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* for a short period of time between 10:29 PM EDT and when she enters Pisces at 11:11 PM EDT. 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.

 

 

DEEPEN COMPASSION

Wednesday, May 9, 2018:

Late Tuesday night, the Moon left Aquarius behind and slipped into the imaginative sensitivity of Pisces. On Wednesday, she passes quietly through Pisces, forming only a supportive sextile aspect to Saturn in the evening.

Fruhling im Bergelli vy Giovanni Giacometti via Wiki Media

Saturn will help you keep your feet on the ground and not get swept into unrealistic, intangible daydreams of unrestrained imagination. Sometimes Pisces can do that, sweeping you away into escapism or dreams. When the Moon is in Pisces, it is not too difficult to get carried away into elusive and poetic fancies.

This will be a good day to create a piece of music, write a poem, or watch a movie. All these things will help you keep harsh realities at bay. Stay away from the booze, drugs, and unrestrained suffering. If you are suffering, turn to music, poetry, or your meditation cushion.

Contemplate the fact of suffering as a truly human condition, something we all experience. This understanding allows you to open your heart to deep empathy and compassion. Look into the eyes of everyone you encounter and know that they too suffer. Offer a silent prayer of unconditional love to each and every one of them.

ESCAPE WITH POETRY

Thursday, May 10, 2018:

There is so much dreaminess on the table this morning, it may be challenging to simply go about the business of living your everyday life. You would prefer to go into your own private, intangible inner landscape. Give yourself the space to do just that. Meditation and rest will support the best use of the day.

Light a candle, spend time alone, allow your intuition and your dreams to speak to you. Pay attention when they do. Write or read poetry that inspires you to enlarge your compassion and unconditional love for others.

Beware of escapism, drugs and alcohol, passivity, and hiding behind victimization. Write a poem instead.

Offer your support to others if you have it to give; ask for support from others if you are in need. Open to love.

 

 

FACE YOUR FEARS; SEE YOUR STRENGTH

Friday, May 11, 2018:

It may come as a surprise on Friday when the soft, passive energies of the Pisces Moon lift. At 8:41 AM EDT, the Moon enters assertive, fast-moving Aries. Set aside your thoughts of soft, dreamy escapism and take onboard an active, direct approach.

When the Moon is in Aries, you may have little patience for others. You do have plenty of energy to engage in physical activities and for demanding what is right for you. It is good to remember that the Aries Moon teaches courage. How do you learn courage? Certainly not by sitting on the couch resting. When the Moon is in Aries, face your fears, move outside your limitations, and learn courage.

At 7:10 PM EDT, there is a lovely trine aspect formed from the Taurus Sun to transformative Pluto. The cycle between the Sun and Pluto is a cycle of empowerment. This cycle began in early January; do you remember what issues regarding power were on the table in your life at that time? The result of what you began then is coming into focus, you can see your way clearly.

You are not there yet but you know what steps to take. The full expression of the power of this cycle will be clear in mid-July. Pay attention and contemplate where you have a powerful impact on others and where others are empowering you.
Face your fears and see your strength.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:03 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 8:41 AM EDT. 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.

KEEP YOUR WITS ABOUT YOU

Saturday, May 12, 2018:

The most important thing to remember on Saturday is to slow down, watch your words, and speak deliberately. The Moon in Aries offers fast, sometimes quite harsh emotions. You may feel edgy and impatient, you also tend to feel invincible. Calm yourself, don’t jump into any potentially dangerous daredevil acts. Physical activity will help but keep your wits about you.

To add to the inevitable thrust of the Aries Moon, Saturday also brings a challenging square aspect from Mercury to Mars. This brings hot restlessness and possibly anger to your thinking. It may be a real challenge to keep yourself out of verbal confrontations. Indeed, there may be injustices that you simply must speak out against on Saturday. Do so but do your best to not provoke others.

Remember to ask yourself repeatedly, before you say a word: is it true, is it necessary, is it kind? Any communication that does not pass that test should not be shared.

 

 

MAINTAIN A STABLE HEART

Sunday, May 13, 2018:

Intensity amps up on Sunday as the future presses forward taking a first step process that unfolds next week when Uranus finally enters Taurus.

At 6:50 AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of communication, joins Uranus, the planet of revolutionary change. Then, at 8:40 AM EDT, Mercury enters Taurus, the sign of stability.

The Moon, still in Aries, also joins with Uranus, highlighting wild activity to come, when she enters Taurus at 2:15 PM EDT. Immediately, the Moon joins with Mercury, setting the stage for the New Moon on Tuesday and Uranus’ pushes into Taurus. The revolution is here; in your life, culture, the world. Wake up.

What can you expect to happen to the endurance and dependability of Taurus when defiant, unsettling Uranus begins its seven-year residence here? What area of your personal life and our culture will be revolutionized by this shift? Expect the unexpected. Given that Taurus is ruled by Venus, you can anticipate revolution regarding cultural attitudes toward the Earth, women, money, food, love, and beauty.

Think about the rumbling changes you hear which are still in the background. Think about cryptocurrency, women finally beginning to make progress against the patriarchy, polyamory, the changing food industry, and environmental advancements. Your life and your world are changing. Uranus is the Awakener; watch the news, watch your life.

Maintain a stable heart.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* for eleven whole minutes between 2:04 PM EDT and 2:15 PM EDT, when she enters Taurus. 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.

 

“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…”
~ Dane Rudhyar “Astrological Aspects – a Process-Oriented Approach”1980

Hello my dear readers,

I’d like you to start this week with a quote by Pema Chodron.  It is a long one. Take the time to slowly read and contemplate it. Hold its wisdom in your heart as you move through the coming week.

Sending love and light,

Laurie

 

An Autumn Idyll by Francis Davis Millet via Wiki Commons

An Autumn Idyll by Francis Davis Millet via Wiki Commons

“We start with ourselves. We make ourselves right or we make ourselves wrong, every day, every week, every month and year of our lives. We feel that we have to be right so that we can feel good. We don’t want to be wrong because then we’ll feel bad. But we could be more compassionate toward all these parts of ourselves. When we feel right, we can look at that. Feeling right can feel good; we can be completely sure of how right we are and have a lot of people agreeing with us about how right we are. But suppose someone does not agree with us? Then what happens? Do we find ourselves getting angry and aggressive? If we look into the very moment of anger or aggression, we might see that this is what wars are made of. This is what race riots are made of: feeling that we have to be right, being thrown off and righteously indignant when someone disagrees with us. On the other hand, when we find ourselves feeling wrong, convinced that we’re wrong, getting solid about being wrong, we could also look at that. The whole right and wrong business closes us down and makes our world smaller. Wanting situations and relationships to be solid, permanent, and graspable obscures the pith of the matter, which is that things are fundamentally groundless.

Instead of making others right or wrong, or bottling up right and wrong in ourselves, there’s a middle way, a very powerful middle way. We could see it as sitting on the razor’s edge, not falling off to the right or the left. This middle way involves not hanging on to our version so tightly. It involves keeping our hearts and minds open long enough to entertain the idea that when we make things wrong, we do it out of a desire to obtain some kind of ground or security. Equally, when we make things right, we are still trying to obtain some kind of ground or security. Could our minds and our hearts be big enough just to hang out in that space where we’re not entirely certain about who’s right and who’s wrong? Could we have no agenda when we walk into a room with another person, not know what to say, not make that person wrong or right? Could we see, hear, feel other people as they really are? It is powerful to practice this way, because we’ll find ourselves continually rushing around to try to feel secure again — to make ourselves or them either right or wrong. But true communication can happen only in that open space.“ ~ Pema Chodron

CHALLENGE YOUR ASSUMPTIONS

Monday, October 10, 2016:

By the time you wake up Monday morning, the Moon will be in humanitarian Aquarius.  Be prepared to accept and engage with a free flow of creative, unusual ideas as you consider your future and the future of our culture on Monday. Keep your mind open and look clearly from a new and unexpected perspective.

Encourage open dialogue in the expression and sharing of new ideas for future development. If you are drawn to a new course of study or a new way of perceiving your world, follow your curiosity. If you encounter people with very different ideas, welcome them as a way of more deeply developing and engaging your own thoughts and ability to articulate your ideas and beliefs. Challenge your thinking and your assumptions.

Consider a social activity in the evening for the sheer enjoyment of encountering new thoughts, opinions, and original perspectives. Follow your curiosity into new dimensions of intellect. Enjoy the play of conversation and where it may take you.

The Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:51 PM EDT on Sunday until she enters unusual Aquarius at 2:33 AM EDT Monday 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.

 

PATH OF FORGIVENESS

Tuesday, October 11, 2016:

Tuesday is an astrologically active day, beginning with mental Mercury (in diplomatic Libra) conjunct expansive Jupiter at 5:45 AM EDT. Pay attention to what thoughts you awake with and any dreams that linger.

This is a day to think about and express your most optimistic big ideas.

Trust your ability to bring these ideas to fruition, in order to do so you must dauntingly engage your mind and your conversations. The Universe will support your manifestation of ideas and plans that are engaged with in speech and concrete plans. Go ahead; speak aloud your BIG IDEAS, BIG PLANS, and BIG DREAMS.

Pay attention to how these ideas are closely connected to the release of a dream or an unrealistic idea that began in January 2015. This is related to Mars sextile Neptune at 1:03 PM EDT. You have the opportunity now to clearly understand how that release will foster a more realistic dream that will come in to focus in January 2017. The best form for this release to take is through the path of forgiveness. Contemplating and forgiving your own mistakes and unintentional wrongs will enable you to understand and forgive those who have wronged you.  The true development of forgiveness is more important to your life path than you may imagine.

With the Aquarius Moon sextile Uranus at 7:49 PM EDT, it should be a great evening to enjoy exciting banter with friends.

The revolutionary Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:49 PM EDT until she enters poetic Pisces at 8:42 AM EDT Wednesday 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.

MEETING THE DIVINE

Wednesday, October 12, 2016:

Wednesday is a day best used for spiritual development or daydreaming. Pisces is a mutable water sign, arguably the most sensitive sign in the zodiac. The Moon in Pisces provides us with an emotionally sensitive day where we are highly attuned to intuition and the emotional states of others. The challenge of any day with strong Pisces energy is in dealing with real world responsibilities and realities.

If you must go to work and play an adult role, do the best you can while paying more attention than usual to intuition. If you don’t have to deal with the real world on Wednesday, enjoy a sense of deep sensitivity, idealistic compassion, and mystical transcendence. Engage in spiritual practice, artistic practice, or any other practice that helps you to meet with the divine.

In all interactions with others, make profound compassionate connection. You can do that with a simple kind word and conscious eye contact. Practice it. This is where you meet the divine in others.

The quirky Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:49 PM EDT Tuesday until she enters sensitive Pisces at 8:42 AM EDT on Wednesday. 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.

 

KEEP EMPATHY CLOSE AT HAND

Thursday, October 13, 2016:

At 6:19 AM EDT, the Pisces Moon square Saturn may have you feeling out of sorts when you awake Thursday morning. In most things on Thursday, it will be good to follow your personal intuition and take your own counsel. However, don’t listen to the little voice that tells you to call out sick from your job. That voice is illusion, not intuition and will be long gone by the time the Moon sextiles Pluto at 10:20 AM EDT. Pluto offers empowerment to intuition and assures us that whatever our intuitive heart chooses to explore at this time will shine a light on a powerful core within us to be developed over the coming weeks.

At 4:59 PM EDT as Mercury squares Mars, keep your eyes open. Please do not start arguments or allow yourself to be pulled into them. Find a way to engage your mind in developing healthy ways to assert your opinions without making it about who is right and who is wrong. Listen to others, respect that they do not see or experience the world in the same way that you do. Take the high road.

Another healthy way to work with this transit is to argue for the underdog, stand up for a cause that is dear to your heart. Keeping empathy close at hand will help you to not get too tied to results that are not within your current control.

 

SPEAK UP

Friday, October 14, 2016:

Friday begins with a continuation of the sensitivity that has been with us for a few days. Allow a passive dreamy state to remain for the early morning hours.

At 11:08 AM EDT, the Moon enters Aries returning you to self-confidence; you are ready to face the world head-on. Indeed, you may notice less patience but you will welcome a renewed sense of independence and self-determination.

With Mercury sextile Saturn at 2:46 PM EDT, you are ready to articulate thoughts of future plans. Communication and intentions are expressed and heard easily. If you have been struggling with the need to express a desire to let go of a plan or project,this would be a good time to say what needs to be said.

With the Aries Moon opposite Jupiter at 11:33 PM EDT, you may head to bed feeling satisfied, optimistic, and possibly infused with wisdom. Sleep well!

The sensitive Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:13 AM EDT until she enters assertive Aries at 11:08 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.

DIGNITY AND COURAGE

Saturday, October 15, 2016:

Saturday will offer us each the possibility of a powerful and challenging day. The Moon in Aries offers independence and courage to face whatever the day brings.

At 6:43 AM EDT, the Sun opposes revolutionary Uranus.  Sudden events, unusual occurrences, and unexpected surprises may leave you agitated, unsettled, or potentially excited. Remaining detached from results and outcomes will be the best way for you to maintain balance and equanimity.  Remember, this could potentially be excitement that changes your world. Excellent news can leave us just as unsettled as bad news. Make no assumptions!

“The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang onto, no parachute. The good news is there’s no ground.” ~ Chogyam Trungpa Rimpoche

At 10:29 PM EDT as Mercury comes to square Pluto, we may do well to sit in meditation before bed. It is easy to get caught up with obsessive or destructive thinking patterns when we are so unsettled. Use this aspect of deep powerful mental activity to gain powerful insights to your deepest inner landscapes.

Shortly after midnight (Sunday morning), the Aries Full Moon conjunct Uranus shows us the power of revolutionary change; do consider that with the Sun in Libra it is important to understand that compromises must be made.  Compromise with dignity and courage in all things.

 

ARIES FULL MOON – COMPROMISE WITH COURAGE

Sunday, October 16, 2016:

Just as the day begins (just past midnight of Saturday – but Sunday nevertheless) we reach the Aries Full Moon at 12:23 AM EDT.

What seed of love did you plant on the Libra New Moon of September 30th? Now at the Full Moon observe how that seed has grown. Can you see with clarity what you have developed?

The Libra New Moon was about the expansion and growth of love, partnership, and resources. Since then, I suspect you have gotten more realistic about where you stand in the development of this romantic vision. On the one side, stands the Aries Moon, so strong in independence and forcefulness; so clear about getting, and even demanding what you want. On the other side stands the Libra Sun insisting that you get clear and understand the level of compromise you need to make to get close enough to your desires.  You do not get to have it all your way Aries; you must include the balanced diplomacy of Libra. Together, you can have it all.

At 11:04 AM EDT, the Moon leaves combative Aries behind and relaxes into the deliberate steadfast consistency of Taurus. Allow the rest of the day to hold a steady dependable calm. This is what you need.

Get a massage on Sunday evening or just spend it quietly at home in comfort with family and loved ones. Relax, find calm.

A SLOW START TO THE WEEK

Monday, September 12, 2016:

Monday begins on a slow note with the steady Capricorn Moon void of course reminding us to leave all new endeavors on the sidelines and simply keep a low profile. When Mercury squares the Sagittarian Mars at 2:58 PM EDT, you may encounter typical Mercury retrograde communication glitches and the aggravation that can accompany it.

When the Moon enters Aquarius at 5:29 PM EDT, the general ‘feel’ of the day will shift allowing for a more positive, innovative, and unpredictable evening.

When the perfectionist Virgo Sun conjoins Mercury at 7:40 PM, the aggravation from the afternoon becomes insignificant as our attention is more easily directed.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:00 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 5:29 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.

 

DEVELOPMENT OF COURAGE

Tuesday, September 13, 2016:

The Moon is in Aquarius throughout Tuesday doing its best to keep our emotions above the fray. One of the gifts of Aquarius is the ability to remain objective in the face of challenging emotions. Whether the Aquarius Moon is up to that task is, at best, uncertain.

The highly prominent aspect of Tuesday is a frustrating square between the Virgo Sun and Mars in Sagittarius. Mars is the planet of action, discord, and anger. This aspect is known for reflecting aggravation, impatience, and frustration. Anywhere you go today and anyone you encounter, make sure to check in with yourself and leave your anger at the door.

As much as possible approach every situation and every person with courage, awareness, and the ability to see truth. As this is the 3rd Quarter Square in the cycle between the Sun and Mars, give clear consideration to what this frustration is asking you to look at clearly. What began in June of 2015, was clearly developed by late May of 2016, and is now suggesting a new step forward or a new direction?

The purpose of this cycle is for the development of courage. The new cycle between them will not begin until July of 2017. Between now and then, we set aside the current challenge and prepare for a new place of courage to begin.

Spending time with yourself alone can be beneficial on Tuesday as you work with your short-temperedness. If you are with others, be cautious not to take any aggravation out on another. Remember, the development of courage is certainly an inside job.

PROGRESSIVE IDEAS

Wednesday, September 14, 2016:

By Wednesday morning, the Aquarius Moon is better equipped to be objective and feel encouraged by the process and expansion of ideas. This may be a day of sharp excitement with progressive new ideas forming out of seemingly nowhere. Keep your eyes open and be willing to think outside the box.

Because the Moon is adrift after 11:32 AM EDT, write down any unusual thoughts or perspectives on your patterns of thought. This is not the time to take action but tuck your ideas aside for future development.

At 10:23 PM EDT, the Moon enters mystical, dreamy Pisces. Sleep will be a sweet place to find yourself in the hours following this ingress.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:32 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 10:23 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.

 

CONTEMPLATION

Thursday, September 15, 2016:

As we continue in growing awareness, preparing for Friday’s Full Moon, we encounter further insistence on developing a deeper connection to spirit. The mystical Pisces Moon conjoins devotional Neptune at 3:46 PM EDT and squares restrictive Saturn at 4:26 PM EDT.

Whatever you call your higher understanding of the Universe, and however you work to develop that connection, is a deeply private matter. Please find time on Thursday to spend in solitude to contemplate your own path. Do not be surprised to find little clarity in this contemplation. Hold space for life’s ambiguity.

Allow questions, confusions, limitations, and dreams to all have a place at the table. As you allow both cold reality and elusive dreams to direct you, you are learning to understand more than you know.

 

PISCES FULL MOON – LUNAR ECLIPSE

Friday, September 16, 2016:

A Lunar Eclipse at 2:54 PM EDT (and the Pisces Full Moon) is the big news on Friday. Eclipses are considered wild cards, times in our lives where we can anticipate major change that can truly transform our lives. Look to the area of your chart that holds 24 degrees Pisces for an idea of where your need for change will be supported over the coming months.

Consider what seed or intention you planted at the New Moon (Solar Eclipse at 7 degrees Virgo) two weeks ago. These eclipses work together to offer a new direction or set your life on an entirely new path.

Consider how the practical routines of your life support your spiritual growth or your creative inspirations.

Contact Astrolore for a consultation (yes, I am taking new clients) if you are ready to see how all the planetary cycles are supporting your individual path. Take a step forward for your own growth.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:05 PM EDT until she enters Aries at 12:23 AM EDT, on Saturday morning shortly after midnight. 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.

ACTIVE EXCITEMENT – IMPULSIVE ANXIETY

Saturday, September 17, 2016:

It will likely feel very much like a new day on Saturday morning. The Moon is now in dynamic Aries and much of the sensitivity and confusion from the past few days has been left behind. We are ready to push ahead toward excitement and action.

Early Saturday morning, Mars trine Uranus suggests much excitement (or anxiety) to manage over the weekend.

In looking at the whole cycle of Mars and Uranus, we see that they last came together in March of 2015. What did you begin at that time? What seed was planted?  These two coming together are an explosive combination, impatient, hot, and sharp.  Whatever began came to full illumination in December of 2015. If you are able to see a connection between those energies and those two periods of time, you see that now you are in full possession of the learning necessary of assertive defiance, revolutionary anger, and impulsive anxiety.

We have learned much and can work with these energies more effectively than has been previously possible. Consider the importance of full awareness, choice, and action. Think about and consider how this is playing out in your personal life as well as in the political landscape.

 

UNEXPECTED CONNECTIONS

Sunday, September 18, 2016:

This entire weekend is encased in intensification. On Sunday, the hot, determined Aries Moon makes challenging contact with both coercive Pluto and defiant Uranus. Keep your eyes open, pay attention to your surroundings and your responses to them.

At 4:05 AM EDT Venus, the planet of love and beauty opposes unconventional Uranus illuminating a cycle of unusual excitement in love that began in mid-April of 2016. A significant step forward was taken around the 7th of July and now you have clarity on where this has landed you. What unusual or unexpected values or love relationship have you developed since that time?

Pay attention to folks you meet today. Life and love can change on a dime when Venus and Uranus come together. You will be attracted to people and values that may, at other times, have held little or no attraction for you. These people could light up your life in powerful ways.

Allow yourself to embrace what is most unusual in others; you may meet someone from a different generation, culture, gender, ability, or nationality. Whoever you meet this weekend may have a profound impact on your life. Don’t stay home, go where you can make new connections.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:11 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 12:58 AM EDT, early Monday 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.

RELEASE EMOTIONAL VOLATILITY

Monday, July 25, 2016:

The week begins with the aggressive Aries Moon trine Saturn offering determination and the ability to push yourself forward with conviction. As the day begins, we feel stable, rock solid, and sure of ourselves.

At 11:30 AM EDT, with the Moon square Pluto, anger may rear its head with potential battles and dark power dynamics coming to the table. If you find yourself justifying your anger, you are on the wrong path. Allow it to pass by.

This is just another Moon transit and will not hang around if you don’t feed it with your attention. Release emotional volatility.

By afternoon or early evening, the harsh energy has passed. The Sun trine both diplomatic Venus and conversational Mercury in Leo, your fiery, expressive emotions easily feed your thoughts and values.

Seek out places to express your beliefs and values with dramatic playfulness. On Monday, your communications may have a way of being reflected back to you in a manner that moves the dial forward supporting your deepest desires.

 

 

SEEK SOLID, PLAYFUL CREATIVITY

Tuesday, July 26, 2016:

Tuesday begins with the Moon still in assertive Aries and we are experiencing a good deal of anxiety as she conjunct Uranus in the early morning hours.

As the Moon enters steadfast Taurus at 11:38 AM EDT, we return to a calm emotional state. We are happy to settle in and engage with others with patience and an added dose of kindness.

The Last Quarter Moon is exact at 7:00 PM EDT. The Leo Sun and the Taurus Moon are energetically at cross-purposes. The Taurus Moon simply wants to stay home and enjoy comfort and stability while the Leo Sun wants to head into the world to shine and dance. If you can bring these two energies together into some form of solid and yet, playful creativity, you may enjoy a delightful evening.

The Moon is VOC* from 2:19 AM EDT until 11:38 AM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, and not bad. It simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

SUDDEN AWARENESS & EXCITEMENT IN LEARNING

Wednesday, July 27, 2016:

At 3:44 AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our minds and thinking, forms a trine aspect to Uranus. Don’t worry, you may sleep through the exact moment of the aspect but you won’t miss out on this. If you were paying attention, it was fully in the air on Tuesday evening and it will be with us throughout the day.

When Mercury and Uranus come together, we want to keep our eyes open for sudden awareness, unusual communications, or profound unexpected light bulb moments. The cycle between Mercury and Uranus began at the end of March 2016. What began at that time that is now resulting in the sudden surprising awareness? Continue to open your mind to new ideas and ways of being in this world. Change can come suddenly.

When the Moon trine Pluto at 2:12 PM EDT, we can tap into great determination and the ability to power through any obstacles that hold us back.

There is a great deal of intensity within this day and we are relieved when it relaxes into easy pleasure as the stable Taurus Moon trines expansive Jupiter at 11:44 PM EDT.

 

 

ANTAGONISM TURNS TO CURIOSITY

Thursday, July 28, 2016:

Thursday begins with full-on cranky energy as the Taurus Moon squares Mercury (8:17 AM EDT) and opposes Mars (11:13 AM EDT). We may feel antagonistic or encounter others who approached us with resistance, discord, or hostility. If you do encounter that energy, don’t take it too seriously. It will pass and most likely has little, if anything, to do with you.

When the Moon enters Gemini at 2:17 PM EDT, your communications become easier. You may be curious about the difficult communications of the morning, and you are ready to have a friendly open conversation to clear the air.

The Moon is VOC* from 11:13 AM EDT until 2:17 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

 

SPARK CREATIVITY

Friday, July 29, 2016:

We begin Friday with a light, active, and curious mind that is somehow uncertain as to its intended place. On the one hand, we want to look at reality and take responsibility for our current place in the world. On the other hand, we want to drift on our imagination and dream of escape routes.

How to honor both of these perspectives? Give the world permission not to make sense; embrace dichotomy. Trying to analyze our perspectives, our lives, and our current path will not lead to understanding.

The reality of our circumstances is, at this time, is at cross-purposes to other more intangible realities that are equally relevant. Allow yourself to hold multiple perspectives.

At 4:48 PM EDT, Mercury square Mars. Are you ready to debate the issues at hand? How do you work with a mind that is hotly aggressive even as you are straddling multiple realities? Utilize the energy of the Gemini Moon to gather and work with the ideas and beliefs on both sides. Work to bring steadfast language to your frustrations and energy to our thoughts. None of us have the full range of understanding and the world is far more complex than we can possibly understand.

At 5:06 PM EDT, Uranus turns retrograde at 24 degrees Aries. If you have personal points or planets between 23 – 25degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), you are likely in a state of extreme excitement or anxiety.

Look to the house that contains Uranus in your natal cart and the house that has Aquarius on the cusp to understand the areas of your life that are being intensified. Allow unusual innovations to spark your creativity.

LEAVE THE DRAMATIC THINKING BEHIND

Saturday, July 30, 2016:

As the Moon happily rattles through Gemini in the early part of the day, we can engage easily in social niceties and simple conversations. At 2:18 PM EDT, Mercury leaves the excitement of Leo behind to enter the analytical sign of Virgo. Mercury is delighted to be in Virgo, leaving the drama behind in exchange for more discerning and thoughtful intellectual pursuits. Whatever excitement has been on your mind over the past few weeks can now come forth in a more practical manner.

The Moon enters Cancer at 5:08 PM EDT. This is not the best night to go in search of social excitement. We are more inclined to seek emotional security and nurturance. Enjoy an evening at home, close to family and loved ones.

The Moon is VOC* from 7:46 AM EDT until 5:08 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, and simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

 

FLOW TURNS TO STRUGGLE

Sunday, July 31, 2016:

With the gift of a flowing trine aspect between the sensitive Cancer Moon and dreamy Neptune, we are presented with a day of sweetness. Don’t put any high expectations on the day but allow yourself full enjoyment. Spend time at the beach, in a body of water, listen to music, read poetry, or meditate. The softer sides of your soul can be fed fully throughout the day.

At 8:03 PM EDT with the Cancer Moon forming an opposition to Pluto, deep troublesome family issues may upend all that ease. Our sensitivity explodes and we must guard against defensiveness and power struggles. Bring kindness and patience to the table. Perhaps time alone in deep contemplation would be our best use of the evening.

Head to sleep early as Monday morning will bring with it a new perspective and the potential of much innovation and excitement.
