DETACHED VIEWPOINT

Monday, June 4, 2018:

A very quiet Aquarius Moon is with us throughout Monday. You can stay home and get just as much accomplished as if you go to work or the other way around. Because the Moon is VOC* all day, there really is nothing you need to accomplish.

This is a day best suited for wild, innovative thinking and gathering with others of like mind. With the Moon in Aquarius, you will do well to seek insights and genius ideas in the company of others. Your emotions generally will not get in the way as you are able to set them aside and view your life from a more detached viewpoint. You are more interested in the plight of humanity and in the big picture of others than in your own pesky emotional state.

I find that long VOC* Moon periods can feel a bit frustrating as I can’t seem to settle into anything and feel a bit like I am aimlessly spinning my wheels. Feel free to have a different experience.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:09 AM EDT until she enters Pisces on Tuesday morning at 6:54 AM EDT. This is a VERY LONG VOC* Moon. 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.

 

 

POWER DYNAMICS IN LOVE

Tuesday, June 5, 2018:

The Moon has entered dreamy Pisces by the time Tuesday gets underway but don’t expect a passive or quiet day due to a build-up of significant interplanetary transits perfecting before the day’s end.

At 10:01 PM EDT, Mercury joins with the Sun in the mid-degree of Gemini, shortly before a powerfully stressful opposition from Venus to Pluto.

Pay attention to what you say and what is said to you. Make sure you understand what is bubbling beneath the words. If you had a significant relationship or financial issues that began in the first two weeks of January 2018, notice how that story has played out and is being expressed now.

You could encounter difficult power dynamics in a love relationship or financial situations. Keep this issue in mind for Wednesday as well; these issues will not vanish overnight.

 

GO WITH YOUR IMAGINATION

Wednesday, June 6, 2018:

Les Dames du Marché by Bernard Cadène via Wiki MediaWednesday, June 6, 2018:

As Wednesday begins, you are still working on the difficult underlying story regarding power dynamics in love or financial concerns. You may be somewhat successful in sweeping those issues under the rug due to the challenge from thoughtful Mercury to dreamy Neptune, along with another square building from the Sun to Neptune.

Clarity is not forthcoming over the next few days. With the Sun and Mercury still in chatty Gemini, there is a lot that you would like to say. Don’t rush into anything that involves trying to explain yourself or your position. Watch as confusion and lack of clarity are expressed in conversations all around you. Expect interesting communications as folks try to talk about things they either know very little about or they are unable to articulate what they do know.

Neptune does not support understanding, so it is probably best to wait before speaking your mind about sensitive issues. Neptune does support meditation and dreams. The Moon is in Pisces all day further heightening your connection to spirituality, lack of clarity, and imagination. So spend the day with soft concerns. Rest and dream.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?
Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything. Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose. Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances. Make your appointment today! 

 

 

DELVE INTO MUSIC, POETRY, MEDITATION

Thursday, June 7, 2018:

Thursday continues with the same challenge to clarity that was with us on Wednesday. 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.

All this Neptune activation should fall away rather dramatically when the Moon leaves passive, quiet Pisces and enters aggressive, loud Aries at 5:26 PM EDT.

It may feel like you have been suddenly been released from a fog or having had bandages removed from your eyes. It’s a relief. Of course, this depends on your circumstances. If you are an artist, a poet, or a mystic. this may very well not be a welcome shift.

Most of you will be more than ready to face the next few days with more assertiveness and energy to take action and move forward. Spend the evening on your own doing something physically active. Go for a run, bike ride, enjoy the strength of your body and your ability to use it to whatever extent you are able.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:35 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 5:26 PM EDT. This is a VERY LONG VOC* Moon. 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.

 

CHALLENGE YOURSELF

Friday, June 8, 2018:

You should wake up on Friday morning feeling strongly driven and able to tap into fierce determination and courage. Find a way to use that energy before it slips into impatience or combativeness.

At 6:56 AM EDT, the Aries Moon makes a positive aspect to Mars. If you are feeling short-tempered or aggressive, it is best to go for a run, have a hot sexual encounter, or masturbate. Move the forceful, excitable energy of Mars (Mars rules Aries) through your body.

When the Moon is in Aries, it is time to take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself. This is not a time for empathy or romance, better to go for a direct passionate exchange.

 

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino

ENGAGE THE POSITIVE

Saturday, June 9, 2018:

If you are an early riser, you will want to be aware of the tough square aspect from the Moon to Pluto at 7:43 AM EDT. Anger and power struggles could easily arise. Do what you need to in order to sidestep whatever issue arises with it.

By the time the Moon sextiles Mercury at 12:04 AM EDT, you are able to release those reactive feelings and settle into a conversation that can support the rest of the day.

Don’t make rash decisions regarding love or money in the afternoon under the influence of the Moon square to Venus, as what you need and what you desire may be strikingly at odds. This won’t last long and the evening is fully salvageable.

Make plans to go out dancing or spending time with others engaged in physical activities. Plan something fun and engaging. The day will have its ups and downs but should end on a high note.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:37 PM EDT until she enters Taurus shortly after midnight. 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.

 

HEALING TOUCH

Sunday, June 10, 2018:

You will wake to a new day with the Moon, now in steady Taurus, joining in the early morning hours with exciting Uranus. Finding excitement in stability or finding your own steadfast core in the midst of anxiety may be the task at hand.

You may encounter some frustration mid-afternoon as the Moon squares Mars at 1:22 PM EDT, again, find your internal strength, maturity, and resoluteness.

This is a good day to spend in the garden, the earth will soothe the places that feel unsettle and frightening. Bring flowers into your home, create beauty around you. Show love in tangible ways. Cook a meal for your loved ones. Offer healing touch.

 

“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.

INNOVATION & BRIGHT IDEAS

Monday, June 12, 2017:

Monday’s determined Capricorn Moon is a great source of support as you head into the week fully engaged and focused on effort and accomplishment. However, as the day goes on, your ability to maintain that focus may be impacted by last-minute changes in direction.

At 2:46 PM EDT, when the Moon squares Uranus, the planet of upheaval, the entire direction of your work may shift. Do your best not to let this derail you. This is only a Moon transit; please remember that this will pass quickly. Take an extended coffee break and allow innovative ideas to come into your awareness in order to get back to work with renewed excitement and energy.

At 7:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters unpredictable Aquarius, encouraging you to continue developing the surprising innovations that nudged at you earlier in the day. The conventional methods you initially were working with can now shift and allow new ways of viewing the project at hand.

Happy Birthday to Ann Frank, Aaron Farrington, Emily Walter, Chick Corea, and John Steinbeck!

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:46 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 7:45 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

A MESSAGE OF HOPE

Tuesday, June 13, 2017:

Tuesday brings a day full of mental activity, a busy day of thinking and articulating what is on your mind.

Mercury is considered to be the Winged Messenger of the Gods, and is seen as carrying messages between the planets. He moves quickly, activating all forms of communication, intellect, reasoning, and awareness; all of these are within the realm of Mercury’s domain. Pay attention to the nature of your thought processes and the content of your mind.

At 11:44 AM EDT, Mercury forms a flowing trine aspect to philosophical Jupiter, bringing optimism and enthusiasm to your thinking. Then, shortly before bedtime (at 11:29 PM EDT), Mercury forms a challenging square aspect to elusive, dreamy Neptune. What message of optimism is Mercury bringing to your deepest dreams or your spiritual path?

I think Mercury is offering a message of hope to areas of confusion within your soul. Allow yourself to hear the messages that come from your dreams. Meditate and listen in silence to the persistence voice that calls you to the deepest understanding of Universal Love.

With the Moon in innovative Aquarius, your open heart perceives a progressive humanitarian view of your world.

Happy Birthday to William Yeats, Paul Lynde, and Tim Allen!

 

 

EXPRESS YOUR MOST UNIQUE SELF

Wednesday, June 14, 2017:

Blossoming Almond Branch in a Glass by Vincent van Gogh

With the Moon in progressive Aquarius, forming a flowing trine to the Gemini Sun, you will want to express yourself in a highly individualistic manner on Wednesday.

You will be more interested in new experiences that are outside the arena of what has become familiar. If there are areas of your life where you have felt stuck and have been unable to move forward, this is a good time to say what needs to be said in order to facilitate the initial step forward. Listen as others speak, you will hear the originality beneath the ordinary.

Open your mind and allow your most exciting thoughts to gain momentum. At 7:49 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a sweet sextile aspect to Saturn, your wild thoughts and conversations are stabilized. Consider what lasting value is being created as you courageously express your most unusual ideas, your most unique self, or your beliefs regarding individual freedom.

Happy Birthday to Gilda Seelke, Vivian Van Natta, and Burl Ives!

 

 

FOCUS AND ATTENTION

Thursday, June 15, 2017:

Don’t be surprised if no one at your breakfast table seems particularly chipper on Thursday morning. At 6:17 AM EDT, the normally upbeat Gemini Sun opposes restrictive Saturn; immediately on the heels of that challenging aspect, the Moon slipped quietly into Pisces.

It will take focus and attention to use these energies productively, it would be all too easy to fall into self-pity or victim type behaviors. Don’t go there!

The Pisces Moon would rather avoid reality in any number of ways while Saturn opposing the Sun (this transit will last throughout the day and into Friday) demands that we face reality and make a solid effort to take responsibility for the rough places we still find ourselves.

Meditation will help but deep levels of compassion for yourself and others will be your best means for managing this day.

Happy Birthday to James Belushi, Newt Gingrich, and Waylon Jennings!

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:40 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 6:18 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

DRIFTY, DREAMY DAY      

Friday, June 16, 2017:

You may be up and seemingly functioning on Friday morning without being fully aware that you are not still dreaming!

As Neptune stations retrograde at 7:10 AM EDT and is closely followed by the Pisces Moon joining her at 14° Pisces, things are not as they seem. It is possible that you will feel particularly vulnerable and emotional, or perhaps you feel suspicious or confused.

The outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) are retrograde for long periods of time and are not challenging the way the inner planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) are during their retrogrades. The reversal of this passive, sensitive energy may take a few days to adjust to.

You may need to take a closer or more prolonged look at some of your more unrealistic plans and dreams.

You will definitely want to take a new look at what needs adjusting in your meditation practice.

The Moon remains in imaginative, mystical Pisces (ruled by Neptune) throughout the day. Have a restful evening in preparation for the weekend when you will have must more energy to work with.

DREAMINESS REPLACED BY IMPULSIVE ACTION

Saturday, June 17, 2017:

Saturday begins slowly; with the Third Quarter Moon in elusive Pisces. It may be hard to shake your dreams or move beyond a profound level of sensitivity. Under this influence, it is best to refrain from expectations of yourself or others.

At 1:55 PM EDT, impulsiveness or excitability will change your mental picture, as the Moon enters dynamic, impatient Aries. This will be a good afternoon for outdoor physical activities. Hiking, skydiving, or biking come to mind. Use your body to keep this powerful energy from getting stuck in anger or aggression. You may feel strongly motivated to start something new; the Aries Moon also providing the courage to step forward and take on whatever challenge you put your mind to.

Don’t plan for a quiet night at home with food and loved ones. You will do better to join your less sedate friends in a loud bar for a few beers!

Happy Birthday to M.C. Escher, Kelly Hurd, Barry Manilow, and Dean Martin!

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:33 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 1:55 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

EMBRACE PARADOX

Sunday, June 18, 2017:

Sunday is likely to be a complex day. The fiercely impatient side of the Aries Moon will be on display as the she forms challenging aspects to Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto pushing us to deal with challenges we may rather avoid. Pay attention and don’t let yourself be swept into passionate anger. Go for a walk to cool off if you feel that type of distress arising.

Conflicting messages are suggested by two major aspects perfecting on Sunday afternoon. At 2:47 PM EDT, the Gemini Sun forms a delightful sextile to Uranus which offers an opportunity of excitement, individuality, and freedom.

The conflicting message comes in when Mercury opposes Saturn at 3:07 PM EDT, this will likely feels much like a limitation being put on your thoughts and ideas.

Push and pull. Freedom vs. restriction.

Don’t allow yourself to fret in frustration. Allow both sides to exist side by side. A major key to living this life with joy is to allow and embrace paradox!

Happy Birthday to Paul McCartney, Sylvia Porter, Aaron Hirka, Kecia Gaboriault, and Beth Hopwood!

”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.

 

Medusa by Ugo Bongarzoni via Wiki CommonsPERMISSION TO INDULGE

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.

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything. Allow more joy and love into your life.

Make your appointment today! 

Together we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose.

Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

CLARIFY PERSONAL VALUES OF LOVE AND RESOURCES

Monday, November 23, 2015:

Last Friday, Venus made contact with Pluto bringing us into contact with our need to transform deeply held personal values. Another perspective is presented, a different way to see possibly unacknowledged ways of understanding those values. Where do your habitual beliefs come from? Do the values you hold truly represent your most authentic beliefs?

Consider what beliefs or values regarding love or money began in early March of this year. Did something unsettling or anxiety producing occur that changed your perspective on your deepest values?

Whatever began at that time comes to the point of its full illumination. Have you made the best decisions along the way? If you took appropriate, courageous action at the end of March you will find yourself at a high point of inspiration; your values regarding money and love will shine with clarity. If you are at a point of deep anxiety, you probably took actions that led you along a path that no longer resonates with your deepest truths.

The Moon enters Taurus at 11:25 AM EST bringing stability to your understanding of the path ahead.

“Happiness in not something ready made. It comes from our own actions.” ~ Dalai Lama XIV

 

 

CLARIFY COMMUNICATIONS

Tuesday, November 24, 2015:

We have very busy days this week. On Tuesday with Mars sextile Saturn, you are aware of an upcoming goal, something that will begin in the summer of 2016. Begin now to look at the steps ahead, consider how to approach this goal steadily, seeking persistent progress.

Another cycle begins today, as Mercury is conjunct Saturn. Your thoughts seek practical reality. This is the beginning of a cycle of stabilizing your mind, thoughts, and ability to communicate. This may be an excellent evening to finally say what must be said. Over the coming months, the results of that communication will become clear.

You will probably not need the reminder, but it is important to be kind and very patient as you deliver communications that you are not sure if they will be happily received.

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” ~ J. R. R. Tolkien

 

 

FULL MOON IN GEMINI: TALK ABOUT IT          

Wednesday, November 25, 2015:

The Full Gemini Moon arrives at 5:45 PM EST reminding us to look for that spot of clarity that has grown over the past two weeks. Where did you plant a seed at the New Moon that is now fully grown? Do you see how significant your communications, and the results of those communications are at this time? On Wednesday, Mercury square Neptune adding an ethereal element to your thinking and your stories. Your dreams may be idealistic, pushing you forward with imagination and hope. With Mercury also sextile Mars, you are given an opportunity to work with determination to reach your dreams.

At 12:16 PM EST, the Moon enters Gemini. You will likely feel excessive, impulsive energy. Watch your words, play with your imagination and allow yourself to take quick action of what lands in your lap. Use excessive energy physically.

REALITY MEET ILLUSIONS – THANKSGIVING

Thursday, November 26, 2015:

Structure meets delusion. On Thursday, Saturn squares Neptune (due to the upcoming retrograde this aspect will reoccur in June and again September of 2016). This is an aspect with long-term impact as each of the planets move quite slowly. Reality may meet illusions, and our imagination and dreams meet stability and stabilization, during this time period.

If you struggle with addictions or have something to hide (from yourself or others), this will not be easy as you encounter circumstances that may be difficult to comprehend. Misunderstandings, bewilderment, and even deception may arise. This is a time to look clearly at where you are hiding from yourself and finally gain clarity on your addictions or other ways that you do not look clearly at the reality of your situation. This is a powerful time to take control of your addictions or others wayward actions, that keep you from living your true authentic life.

Much depends on how you deal with the facts of your situation as they are presented now. You may learn a great deal about the importance of integrity and attentiveness in your life. This is an aspect that you will be working with for a long time.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” ~ Mark Twain

 

 

A DAY FOR FAMILY CONNECTION

Friday, November 27, 2015:

Friday presents a day of further contemplation on the issues we talked about on Thursday. That aspect between Saturn and Neptune is in full swing in our lives for the upcoming year. So get clear on where you hide your deepest self. Allow full view of your illusions.

The Moon is in Gemini VOC* until she enters Cancer at 2:27 PM EST. This is a wonderful afternoon or evening to spend with family. Go ahead and allow a bit of nostalgia. Yesterday, Thanksgiving itself, may have turned out more difficult than Friday.

Maintain a low-key family centered evening. Enjoy!

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Winston Churchill

 

 

KEEP IT LIGHT

Saturday, November 28, 2015:

If you spent Thursday and Friday with family, it may be time to head back to your own home on Saturday, or to pack up the relatives and say farewell.

The Moon continues through Cancer but she is not having a lovely day. In her travels on Saturday, she forms stressful connections to Mars, Pluto, and Uranus. Any underlying issues within the family could easily come to a head. Your best results will be to get the day off to a great start by connecting with everyone in your family with kindness and love. Keep it relatively light and be ready move forward into an evening alone.

“I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then, I ask myself the same question.” ~ Haran Yahya

 

 

LEARN FROM THIS TENSION

Sunday, November 29, 2015:

The Moon continues through Cancer until 7:47 PM EST when she joyfully steps into Leo. Leo Moon is delighted to have her beloved Sun in the confident glow of Sagittarius. They are ready to play together.

However, the tension, (that is the square of the planets), between Saturn and Neptune is palatable. The Sagittarius Sun pushes his way into the mix, demanding answers to his rather blunt questions.

The Sun squares Neptune and conjunct Saturn on Sunday showing you glimmers of the issue at hand. Neptune asks where your self-interests may be inappropriate or unhealthy. Saturn asks you to do the hard work necessary to create a structure that will move you from that self-interest to deeply intuitive compassion and understanding. This is not the time to avoid or put off your own self growth and understanding.

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge” ~ Stephen Hawking

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: June 22, 2015 through June 28, 2015

Rainbow Splash by Janice Montecalvo of Providence, RI

Rainbow Splash by Janice Montecalvo of Providence, RI

As I look at the upcoming week, I see a bit more astrological activity than we have had in the previous two weeks. It has felt eerily quiet!

On Monday, Jupiter and Uranus come together in a trine aspect which has been impacting us strongly since September of 2014.

This brings the planet of expansion, (Jupiter), together in a free flow of energy with the planet of unexpected surprises, unusual circumstances, and humanitarian events, (Uranus).

If your birthday falls on April 9-11, August 11-13, or December 11-13, this will be a particularly powerful week. Watch for expansion, an opening, or a surprise!

Many of you have asked how my partner, Brenda, is recovering. I have also gotten questions regarding my own circumstances. Thanks for asking; I love to share!

Last week, Brenda went back to work after her heart attack on Easter Sunday. She still tires out easily but the healing process is at work and cannot be rushed.

The current complications come in the form of the company she works for. Brenda is being laid-off , along with most of her coworkers. In order to maintain employment, she is going to have to move to either Portland, Maine or Bangor, Maine!

Oh heavens! Didn’t the doctor recommend “No Stress”? Well, “no stress” for someone with Uranus conjunct Leo Moon, squaring a stellium in Taurus, simply is not possible.

Life certainly offers us the circumstances that most clearly reflect who we are. What is the reflection that you see in your own life and chart?

Is it time for you to learn more about the perspective of your life through your horoscope?

Contact me today! There is so much to learn! Keep in mind the delight you can experience as life takes on such richness as you use the language of astrology to heal and grow in this lifetime.

Look for a busier week this week. Welcome it!

 

 

EXPAND THE EXCITEMENT IN YOUR LIFE

Monday, June 22, 2015:

The week begins with great excitement as Jupiter forms a trine aspect to Uranus. Because of Jupiter’s recent retrograde, this transit is the third such trine between them. The first trine occurred in September 2014, the second in March 2015, and the final happens on Monday.

Take time to consider the energies that these two planets represent. Jupiter is the planet of great expansion. Whatever Jupiter touches, it simply makes bigger! It is also the planet that speaks to us on issues of faith, belief, and overindulgence.

Uranus is the planet of unexpected, shocking, and possibly wildly unusual surprises. It is the planet of innovation and revolution!

*I must check where this transit falls in Bernie Sanders chart! 🙂

In considering this expansive excitement, think back to the beginning of this cycle between Jupiter and Uranus which occurred in mid-2010 until early 2011. When Jupiter and Uranus come together, it is a significant push for the future.

Uranus always shows the way forward. If you can identify something in your life that expanded in 2010, look at how the energy is pushing forward with more expansion into the future. The full ramifications of this cycle will be evident in early 2017.

These are slow-moving planets and although the aspect is exact on Monday it has been, and is continuing to color the environment we live in for an extended period of time.

The Moon is in Virgo on Monday. We are aware of the potential of our accomplishments for today. The only thing you should let get in the way of work is something that brings significant excitement. If something shows up that provides a spark of excitement, drop the work!

 

SOFTEN BOUNDARIES

Tuesday, June 23, 2015:

Tuesday, we have the Moon in Virgo, again pushing us toward accomplishment. Watch your tendency toward judgment and narrow-mindedness. Remember how little you know about what goes on in the depths of another person’s soul. Whether it is your mother, your child, your neighbor, or your best friend; none of us know the contents of another soul’s path.

At 2:08 PM EDT, Mercury squares Neptune explaining the lack of clarity and motivation regardless of the insistence of the Virgo Moon. The cycle between Mercury and Neptune began in mid-March 2015. This is a cycle whose purpose is to soften or dissolve the barriers within the mind

How does the mind soften? I would say it softens through the training of meditation, through music, or through deep suffering. The softening of your mind or thoughts that began in mid-March has brought you to a point now where action must be taken to determine the outcome.

For me, mid-March was when Brenda had her heart attack. Now, the action that must be taken seems to be helping her pack up and move to Maine. The full result will be clear at the planet’s opposition in mid-August.

Tell me how you see this playing out in your own life. I’m very curious. Regardless of what began at the start of the cycle in March, meditation would be an excellent action to take now.

If there are problems in your situation regarding drugs or alcohol, be particularly careful. Meditation, listening to music, watching great films, and studying the writing of mystical thinkers would all have great benefit for everyone at this time.

May I recommend the video, ‘With One Voice’ directed by Eric Temple? I believe you can find it on Netflix.

 

SAY WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID

Wednesday, June 24, 2015:

By the time we wake up on Wednesday morning, the Moon has entered Libra and we have reached the First-Quarter Square of the lunar cycle. The New Moon that arrived last week on June 16th began the cycle of increased communication and intellectual development.

On Wednesday, take action on a communication or an intellectual pursuit. Sit down and have that conversation or go online and sign up for the class that you know would be of great benefit for you to take.

Wednesday’s Libra Moon keeps us focused on pleasure, beauty, and diplomacy.
At 9:32 AM EDT, Mars leaves Gemini behind (where he has been residing since early May) to enter Cancer. Let’s be honest, Mars is not delighted to be in Cancer. Mars is the planet of action, sexuality, and determination. Cancer is the sign of nurturing and mothering.

Mars would rather fight than nurture and sometimes this can bring us to consider passive aggressive actions. Be aware of these tendencies. The heat of sexuality may be watered down and you may find yourself preferring to cook for each other and play with the puppy rather than activities of a more randy nature.

Mars will remain in Cancer until he enters Leo on August 8th, 2015 (my birthday)! Enjoy the new puppy! Hot times return in August!

 

HOLD STEADY

Thursday, June 25, 2015:

As we adapt to Mars’ new position in Cancer, the Moon remains in Libra throughout Thursday. This may be a day of vacillating emotions. Early in the morning, the Moon squares Pluto as we struggle to contemplate the deeply profound differences between “us vs. them”.

The majority of the afternoon should be pleasant. You can anticipate easier connections with others as the Moon is sextile Venus in Leo. Around dinner time, there may be further anxiety, excitement, or struggle as the Moon connects with Uranus.

By the time the dinner dishes are washed and put away, the Moon sextiles Jupiter and our emotions expand into a more diplomatic joyful space once again. I think the best way to manage this type of day is simply to be aware and try to hold steady even as the energies push us to extremes.

If you are not paying attention, it could be easy to spend part of the day feeling that your life is falling apart and other parts of the day feeling that your life is on the perfect path. Focus on the clear understanding that neither one of these extremes holds the full reality of your situation. Look clearly at both sides and hold steady on the middle path.

At 7:23 PM EDT, the Moon is VOC* following the sextile to Jupiter. Thursday should hold a pleasant evening to rest in the company of friends.

 

FOCUS AND CLARITY

Friday, June 26, 2015:

Friday begins with the Moon still VOC* in Libra. Don’t try to rush into this day determined to make great strides in accomplishment. Move slowly, take your time, and have a leisurely breakfast with your family. Sit with a loved one over coffee and conversation before plowing into the day.

At 1:57 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio and we are able to go deeply into a project and get a great deal accomplished before the end of the day. There is focus and clarity available. If you need information, this is the day to ask for it.

Don’t ask if you don’t want the answer. Be clear on that.

The evening is best spent with intimate partners but only if you are ready for deep connection. Do not waste this lovely evening watching television or spending time with casual acquaintances.

This Friday evening is an ideal time for intimate, sexual, passionate love and affection. Take advantage of it. Make connection.

If you feel that this is not an option for you because of your current circumstances, please read this awesome book: Sexual Intelligence by Marty Klein.

SEEK DEPTH AND CONNECTION

Saturday, June 27, 2015:

How did you spend Friday evening? The answer to this question determines much of how your entire weekend plays out.

Ideally, you spent the evening with a lover or fully engaged with your own passionate, lustful self. If so, you will enter Saturday feeling deeply connected to your core. This is a simple Saturday with the intensity of the Scorpio Moon but without other complications.

This would be a delightful weekend for some sort of retreat. A good time away from the hustle and bustle of the world, a time for intimate connections, a time to explore your own depth. It’s a time to explore the depth of your most intimate relationships.

Take your journal and go alone to a riverbank or park bench. Write your heart out. Find the deepest, most tender parts within your soul and write the words that are emblazoned in that deep warmth.

 

SAY “YES!”

Sunday, June 28, 2015:

Sunday holds the reflection and the simplicity of Saturday but with a twist! Very early Monday morning, Venus is sextile Uranus.

There is no question that this will be felt on Sunday. Let’s look at the cycle involved!

On March 4, 2015, Venus and Uranus connected in Aries. This began a cycle of intensifying relationship or radically changing your relationship to money or resources.

Did something exciting begin at that time in your relationship or did something exciting or stressful occur in terms of money or resources? Whatever began then has come a long ways.

At this point, you have an idea of the ultimate result of this cycle. The full illumination and release of creative energy will occur in late November 2015.

There is excitement and new possibilities. Keep your eyes open! If there is an opportunity offered that peaks your interest… say “Yes”!

 

__________________________________________________________

This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Virgo) for a very short time beginning at 1:12 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 1:41 AM EDT.

Thursday, June 25, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Libra) following a sextile to Jupiter at 7:23 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio on Friday at 1:57 PM EDT.

Sunday, June 28, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Scorpio) following a conjunction to Saturn at 9:50 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 11:21 PM EDT.
