Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather September 17, 2018 through September 23, 2018

 

The most significant happening of the upcoming week is the third and final difficult square aspect between aggressive Mars and revolutionary Uranus.

This energy invokes images of intense hurricanes, typhoons, and gas explosions. Yikes, sound familiar?

When Mars and Uranus connect, the energies are unexpected, shocking, and over-the-top. You may experience this as extreme anxiety or excitement.

Pay attention to where you are experiencing your own version of a typhoon or hopefully some less destructive sudden change. Stay awake and aware. Pay careful attention to how you respond to the shifts that occur without warning.

GOALS AND AMBITIONS

Monday, September 17, 2018:

With the Moon entering Capricorn at 7:08 AM EDT, and joining with Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) at 12:25 PM EDT, this is not a day to pursue trivial issues. Monday is a day to work hard on your personal goals and ambitions.

Take your work and what you want to accomplish seriously. Your life has consequences and you have important goals to set and things to successfully complete. Monday is not a day for daydreams or lack of focus.

If you have been drifting or wasting your abilities, now is the time to get clarity on what actions are necessary to change your course. You can make a decision now. One simple step can start a new path.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* until she enters Capricorn at 7:08 AM 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.

 

HECTIC INTENSIFICATION

Tuesday, September 18, 2018:

Tuesday brings us to the peak of the challenging square between Mars and Uranus. Keep your eyes open and accept what arrives; do not fight against any change you encounter, no matter how sudden or unexpected.

Mars represents aggression, action, and the power of will. Uranus represents defiance, intensification, and revolution. Look in your own chart to the houses that hold Aquarius and Taurus. Those are the areas of life that will likely require acceptance as you deal with intense anxiety or possibly excitement.

The powerful arena of news, politics, and weather is certainly ripe for this dramatic energy. Watch as these issues continue to shift and change with unusual speed and intensity.

The Moon continues through authoritative, hard-working Capricorn. This will help you to maintain maturity and a focus on reality in the midst a potentially hectic day.

 

WELCOME OBJECTIVITY WEDNESDAY EVENING

Wednesday, September 19, 2018:

Here mid-week, the Moon remains in Capricorn until late evening. When the Moon is in Capricorn, it is important to exercise maturity, caution, and responsibility in all your interactions. Early in the day, the Moon forms a soothing trine to the Sun and Mercury (both in efficient, analytical Virgo).

At 7:52 PM EDT, the Moon enters Aquarius and you can breathe a sigh of relief as your perspective moves toward objectivity.

Allow for wild, innovative thinking in the hours before sleep; seek insights, genius ideas, and a humanitarian perspective. Your emotions will not get in the way as you will be able to set them aside and view your life from a more detached viewpoint. You are more interested in the plight of humanity than in your own, sometimes bothersome, emotional state.

Wednesday may turn out to be the most productive day of the week. Stick with ongoing projects in the afternoon as you don’t want to start anything new with the Moon VOC after 1:10 PM EDT.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* from 1:10 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 7:52 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.

 

LISTEN TO DEVELOP UNDERSTANDING

Thursday, September 20, 2018:

The Moon is in innovative, unconventional Aquarius all day on Thursday. Seek out people you don’t generally engage with. It is easy to spend our lives with people who think, look, and vote just as we do. Seek to do it differently.

Take time to deeply listen and make an effort to understand others; this will help you clarify your own values and views. Seek out people of a different race, sexuality, gender identification, age group, nationality, political affiliation (yes, even that). Listen. We are all human and we all have valid reasons for our proclivities. Widen your interest, look to a more expansive or humanitarian perspective. Love all.

Mercury joins with the Sun (9:51 PM EDT) bringing a great need to communicate. Include others in your awareness, do not get stuck in self-concern, and involved only with your own interests. Share your words with an open understanding and mind. Maintain a logical mind; seek clarity. Listen.

 

COOPERATION BUILDS OVER THE COMING DAYS

Friday, September 21, 2018:

The Moon remains in Aquarius on Friday offering you an objective view of your situation and the folks around you. This should be an easy day to allow your most unique expression to emerge.

You may feel a need for freedom from people or situations that in any way restrict your individuality. This will change moving forward as Mercury and the Sun move into Libra.

Enjoy where you are at now, as this is a day to spend with your most unusual friends or the folks in your social circle who stretch you intellectually. Your interests are less focused on yourself and your closest loved ones as you are more interested in what is happening collectively in the larger world. When the Moon is in Aquarius, it is easier to open your mind to new ways of viewing the world.

Enjoy time with others, engage in intellectual conversations about the state of the world, consider what you can do, with the support of like-minded others, to help alleviate suffering in the world.

Mercury leaves perfectionistic Virgo and enters cooperative Libra at 11:39 PM EDT, and the Sun will follow the Moon into Libra on Saturday. Mercury represents our thinking and communications. We may notice that we are more interested in the coming weeks in cooperation and the creation of harmonious connections.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* from 1:14 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 8:27 AM EDT on Saturday. 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.

 

 

SUN ENTERS LIBRA AT THE AUTUMNAL EQUINOX

Saturday, September 22, 2018

Saturday’s Pisces Moon will help you go with the flow, allowing you to rest in the exploration of the softer, more sensitive side of yourself. Utilize Pisces’ watery spaciousness to move you with music, poetry, meditation, or other spiritual contemplations; use your imagination and take the opportunity to dream.

Saturday, September 22nd marks the Autumnal Equinox (also called the September or Fall Equinox). This is the astronomical start of autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and the Vernal Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Sun enters Libra at 9:54 PM EDT, the moment of the Autumnal Equinox. At the Equinox, the Sun crosses the celestial equator. In the coming days, you will notice (in the Northern Hemisphere) a strong shift as the nights get longer and the days shorter.

Remember, that as the Sun enters each Cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), the seasons change.

Moving into the colder season we become more aware of the significance of partnerships, and the importance of creating cooperative, harmonious relationships. These considerations will occupy you a great deal over the coming weeks.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* until she enters Pisces at 8:27 AM 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.

 

EFFORT – ACTION – REST

Sunday, September 23, 2018:

Mercury, now in Libra, encounters a challenging conversation with authoritative Saturn early on Sunday afternoon. There may be misunderstandings between you and a loved one. Don’t jump to conclusions; ask questions, listen and allow patience and understanding to grow. It may take time and effort but will be well worth it.

By evening, as a trine forms between Mercury and Mars, you are able to communicate effectively and take action on your new understanding. This is a day to embark on a planned action to resolve communication issues in your most significant relationships. You can move your partnership or friendship in a more positive direction with sincere willingness and effort.

The Moon continues through Pisces, a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, and deeply emotional energies. Sunday will be a good day for meditation, spending time on water, allowing yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watching movies, or making music. Enjoy rest and sweetness along with the relationship and communication work of this day.

That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that 

Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong.

TAKE RISKS WITH YOUR HEART

Monday, April 23, 2018:

Monday’s astrological aspects suggest a simple day with the Moon moving smoothly through playful, fun-loving Leo. Don’t make the day complicated with unnecessary melodrama and tension. This is a good day to applaud someone else’s accomplishments and to step aside and allow another person to take the limelight.

If, however, you find yourself to be the one on stage (literally or figuratively), accept it with grace and style. Focus your attention and expression on warmth, generosity, and open-hearted kindness. Keep your pride and pettiness at bay.

You may want all the attention but as adults sometimes it is best to give others exactly that which we desire.

Today create something fun, play with children, or take risks with your heart.

 

EMBRACE CURIOSITY

Tuesday, April 24, 2018:

Explore ways to increase your connection to your physical body, your ability to assert yourself or your sexuality. In the wee hours of the morning, Mars forms a lovely sextile to Jupiter, the planet of amplification and expansion. Whatever you learn now will help inform and support a powerful shift that begins later this week when Mars connects with dynamic, forceful Pluto.

At 12:39 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of beauty and love, leaves the comfort of Taurus behind to embrace curiosity in Gemini. You will be more interested in conversations with your loved ones than you have been in the past 3 ½ weeks. Curiosity will motivate you on romantic as well as social and financial issues. You will be more interested and interesting but less inclined to deep emotional connection. Keep it light.

At 4:41 PM EDT, the Moon enters meticulous, productive Virgo. Spend the evening taking care of details, analyzing your health routines, and other practical activities.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:40 PM EDT until she enters Virgo at 4:41 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

 

INTENSITY CRACKLES IN THE BACKGROUND

Wednesday, April 25, 2018:

Wednesday brings with it discomfort and heaviness as Mercury forms a challenging square to restrictive Saturn. You may feel the need to say something that just isn’t ready to come out effectively. It may not be easy but try to find patience!

Be gentle and kind with your words.

Even as Venus, newly in Gemini, wants to get things off its chest, Saturn insists that you wait and think carefully before you speak. The Virgo Moon may want to get in on the act with criticism and judgments.

Intensity crackles in the air as we approach the square between Mars and Pluto which is exact on Thursday morning. That energy which we have felt brewing won’t stay in the background any longer. Watch what is happening on the world stage.

 

 

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

Astrology in the hands of a proficient astrologer will 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!  

 

 

 

 

PUT YOUR SHOULDER TO THE WHEEL

Thursday, April 26, 2018:

Make no mistake, this is a time of powerful change. Looking at the social and political upheaval, you can’t miss the intensity of the forces that are beyond your control.

If you have personal planets or any sensitive points between 19 -23° of any of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), the intensity and turmoil in the outer world is clearly reflected in your own life and your own heart. Consider a consultation, contact me.

Now, with Mars joining Pluto, a new cycle begins involving force and power. Read that sentence again. This is not a simple passing Moon transit or a low-key cycle. These are the big kids on the block, playing with fire. It is time to put a stake in the ground, to use your personal power for a cause that you passionately believe in.

Of all the issues that need your attention, it is your responsibility to find the one that speaks to you most strongly. Over the next few days, plan your path forward toward making a difference. It is time to put your shoulder to the wheel.

With the Moon in Virgo, your heart understands the importance of being of service. We each need to serve the higher good, each to their ability.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:50 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 9:13 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.

 

PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING

Friday, April 27, 2018:

The intensity of the conversation that Mars and Pluto began yesterday remains hovering beside us as we move into the weekend. Don’t forget the message of this new cycle: Find a cause you believe in and get to work helping others to make a difference in the world.

Your voice and your backbone are needed and will make a difference. Don’t assume there is nothing you can do, even the smallest efforts make a difference.

On Friday, the Moon is in Libra, encouraging you to ratchet down the potential anger and make a point of understanding each side of the issue. Do not assume that you are right and others are wrong. There are reasons and experiences in people’s lives that result in very different realities.

With the Moon in Libra, have a conversation with someone who sees the world in a radically different way than you do. Listen to what they have to say with an open heart and mind and allow yourself to see another’s perspective. Sharing realities, understanding ‘otherness’ is the only way to reach peace and understanding.

 

THE EVENING BRINGS RELIEF

Saturday, April 28, 2018:

You really do want to understand, cooperate, and make the world a better place with beauty and understanding. On Saturday, you can expect to feel a bit overwhelmed and discouraged when your efforts don’t immediately get you what you had hoped for. The important things in life always seem to take more time and commitment than you may have wished was the case.

As the Libra Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mars and Pluto, she fans the flames of their meeting several days ago. This suggests a reminder of the message that there is work to do. Remember, this cycle between Mars and Pluto asks you to find a cause you believe in and get to work helping others to make a difference. Stay focused on what small steps you can make now to shift the course of your own mind and the minds of others.

By Saturday evening, you can relax and allow these heavy issues to move to the side of your awareness. It will feel good and lift your spirits to shift your focus and find beauty and love in social interactions. Spend the evening with a loving partner or good friends.

 

SCORPIO FULL MOON – REVEAL YOUR TRUTH

Sunday, April 29, 2018:

By the time you wake up on Sunday morning, the Moon has entered intense, cathartic Scorpio. When the Moon is in Scorpio, your emotions tend to go very deep, you look below the surface, and you will settle for nothing less than the truth.

Connections with others must be deeply powerful in order to be worth your while.

At 6:03 AM EDT, the Sun forms a lovely trine aspect to stabilizing Saturn. This settles the day considerably and will remain a major positive influence throughout the day.

The Moon is fully illuminated at 8:59 PM EDT. The Scorpio Full Moon is an excellent time to look in the mirror and see how you are powerfully changing right before your very own eyes. Scorpio insists that you uncover what is hidden and bring it into the open.

Consider the seed you planted at the New Moon on April 15th, how does the growth of that seed help you understand what now needs to be revealed? Allow a deeply concealed part of yourself to come to light that will change your path forward.

In the wee hours, while you sleep, the Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:32 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 3:12 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 HEART ENGAGED

Monday, April 2, 2018:

Monday follows on the heels of a difficult Full Moon, given the Cardinal T-square formed by the Sun and Moon to both Saturn and Mars.

On Monday, the conjunction of Mars to Saturn perfects, offering you a few days to work your way from a deep feeling of inadequacy to hardcore determination. Indeed, there are two sides to this conjunction. You may feel overwhelmed by too much work and effort being demanded of you or you may feel ready to face any obstacle that stands in your way. You may want to simply take the bull by the horns and do what needs to be done through sheer determination and hard work.

However, in every action that you take, remain aware of the impact your actions have on others. It is important that sensitivity and kindness be included in all your work endeavors. It may not be easy but with both assertive Mars and duty-driven Saturn in business oriented, restrictive Capricorn, keep your heart engaged and love on tap.

The Scorpio Moon makes lovely aspects throughout the day helping to keep any stress in perspective.

 

 

GROWTH AND CHANGE

Tuesday, April 3, 2018:

Tuesday morning brings a few sweet aspects from the deeply intense Scorpio Moon to Pluto and Jupiter. You feel moved to explore issues of lasting change and growth in your life. With no other planetary aspects to pull your attention away from the areas of your life that you know require change, these deep issues will simmer within your heart throughout the day.

Whenever the Moon is in Scorpio, you know that there will be issues of intensity to manage. You may experience this intensity in the realm of desire, passion, sorrow, or suffering. Nothing will feel impersonal or superficial.

Look deeply at your own power and consider what is required to eliminate old habits and limiting fears. Avoid tendencies to control others through manipulative tactics and if you find yourself full of suspicion, it may well be unwarranted. Wait before making solid determinations.

 

 

WATCH YOUR WORDS AND RESPONSES

Wednesday, April 4, 2018:

By the time Wednesday begins, the Moon has entered explorative Sagittarius bringing a bit of levity to the table. Unfortunately, that levity is countered by a cranky square between aggressive Mars and retrograde Mercury. Be careful of your conversations, take time to consider how you are experienced and heard by others.

This aspect may also feel like a common conflict between those things you would like to spend the day on and the responsibilities that call. I wonder how many folks skip work on days like this? Go to work; you are going to feel the conflict anyway so you might as well not waste it on a day off. Just watch your words and your reactions to the words of others.

The evening allows for more productive conversations with a trine between the Moon and Mercury at 8:52 PM EDT. Take advantage of this as Thursday does not allow us to get back to a lighter easier space.

 

 

Have you studied astrology for years but are unclear whether you have the knowledge you need? Do you know how to use your understanding to have a meaningful conversation with a client? Are you contemplating working with clients but unsure how to move forward?  I would be honored to help you move toward your desire to help others with this powerful language of astrology. Contact me TODAY for a FREE STRATEGY SESSION.

 

 

STABILIZE COMMITMENT

Thursday, April 5, 2018:

You can probably anticipate an early-morning argument on Thursday. It could be an actual argument with another person over the breakfast table or it could be an internal struggle with yourself. In the wee hours of the morning, Mercury, the planet of the thinking mind, already somewhat out of sorts in her retrograde motion, forms a challenging square aspect to restrictive Saturn.

The day can only get better from there, and it does!

At 9:36 AM EDT, Venus forms a trine aspect to Saturn, settling and stabilizing your jagged energies following the early morning struggle. You may find yourself more interested in outwardly accepting or acknowledging a commitment that is already solid in your heart.

For the rest of the day, you should be in relatively high spirits feeling seen and appreciated in the world at large.

Remember, that the Moon is in exuberant Sagittarius throughout the day. In your interactions with others, keep your spirits as buoyant as possible and share the good stuff around. 😉

 

 

A QUIET EVENING IN

Friday, April 6, 2018:

Friday brings with it a bit of morning excitement or defiance as the extravagant Sagittarius Moon makes contact with Uranus (9:35 AM EDT). You may find yourself feeling inspired or simply unsettled. Roll with it; it will pass quickly. Once that energy settles down, the rest of the morning and early afternoon should be quiet and uneventful.

At 2:02 PM EDT, the Moon enters conventionally ambitious Capricorn. The sign the Moon is in says much about how we experience the ‘feel’ of the day. This may not be what you were expecting or hoping for on a Friday evening. Perhaps, you were anticipating a fun night with friends dancing or otherwise socializing. If you try to enact that plan, you may find yourself wishing you had stayed home or chosen a quieter way to spend the evening.

Make a plan to accomplish something that takes solitary effort and focus for the upcoming weekend. If you wake up on Saturday morning with a plan, the whole weekend will be vastly improved.

 

 

 

CONQUER A SERIOUS PROJECT

Saturday, April 7, 2018:

Make sure that you have a plan for Saturday. The morning will go so much better if you know exactly what you plan to accomplish. This is otherwise not an easy day. The Moon is moving through Capricorn (while highlighting the difficult connection between Mars & Saturn) and this transit can be used for accomplishment and discipline as long as you have a focus. Without a focus, it will be easy to fall into worry, pessimism, fear, and narrow-mindedness.

Luckily, Venus forms a supportive trine aspect to Saturn on Saturday as well. This will support the focused projects nicely and allow you to feel better at the end of the day.

Do you still need to do or finish your taxes? This is the weekend to get that done. If that is not still hanging over your head, plan a project that requires solitary focus and productivity. You will enjoy the weekend much more if you spend it alone with a focus than if you try to engage in social interactions.

Your most challenging task on Saturday will be to find balance and perspective. If you are not able to be on your own for the day, remember to show as much kindness as you can muster. We will all need a healthy dose of self-care and kindness.

 

 

OFFER KINDNESS AND RESPECT

Sunday, April 8, 2018:

Sunday doesn’t offer much of a reprieve on the challenges of the weekend. In the wee hours of the morning, the authoritative Capricorn Moon forms a difficult square aspect to the forceful Aries Sun. You may simply feel your style being cramped and what you want isn’t easily available.

You will do well to prepare to stay focused on the project at hand, work is your best bet at this time. Work to stay serious, keep your eye on reality, and stay balanced and steady.

Again, it isn’t easy but offer everyone you encounter kindness and respect.

DEPTH AND INTROSPECTION

Monday, March 5, 2018:

At 8:23 AM EST, the Moon enters deeply personal and introspective Scorpio. You may prefer to spend the day alone contemplating deeply intense issues of a mysterious or private nature. If you must work on Monday, you may find it easy to discover what is at the root of any workplace mysteries.

This is a good day for searching out what is below the surface or, conversely, a good time to hide issues that are best kept undercover. You may know better than usual how to ask the right questions to get to the root or to evade questions asked of you. Days with a Scorpio Moon are not days of casual conversations or connections. Everything seems deeper, more profound, and with more significant meaning.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:19 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 8:23 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

Mystical Pisces season is about to end with Mercury and Venus entering Aries on Tuesday. You can expect less emotion and more action.

 

 

SET THE DREAM ASIDE – TAKE ACTION

Tuesday, March 6, 2018:

By the time you awake on Tuesday, Mercury has entered assertive, action-oriented Aries. The dream state of the past month is broken and it is time to face the mental and intellectual activity that has been brewing below the surface. Mercury has been in Pisces since February 17th, encouraging passive and imaginative thought processes.

Now, it is time to put the words on paper or speak them aloud. If you have had things to reveal but the time has not seemed right, you are moving closer to the tipping point now. Mercury will remain in Aries until May 13th, with Mercury retrograde beginning on March 22nd.

Evening brings lovely Venus into Aries as well. The dream and the fantasy break as you know it is time to face reality. Get clear on your individual values, take the steps necessary to make your relationship and your finances work over the coming months. All that has been put on the back burner throughout the Pisces season is now ready to push forward.

The powerful, private Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to both dreamy Neptune and the Pisces Sun throughout the day. Life has a gentle flow even as words, thoughts, and communications come more directly and easily.

 

 

SEEK NEW DIRECTIONS

Wednesday, March 7, 2018:

Both the flow and the ability to take action continue into Wednesday with a tiny touch of the dream still intact. It is not always easy to release our most lovely fantasies.

At 5:03 PM EST, the Moon enters Sagittarius, lightening your emotional nature and assisting in forward motion. Spend the evening with folks who engage your thinking and your spirit in looking forward to new directions.

Spring by John Reinhard Weguelin via Wiki Media

Consider new perspectives and new directions. What do you want to learn? Where do you want to travel? Who do you want to understand that you currently don’t? Ask questions, get curious, and don’t get stuck in your own already stale thinking. Look at where your life is stuck and move the dial in a new direction.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:55 AM EST until she enters Sagittarius at 5:03 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

RE-EXAMINE WHAT HAS BEEN EXCAVATED SINCE OCTOBER

Thursday, March 8, 2018:

Late on Wednesday night, the Sagittarius Moon forms an easy trine to Mercury, helping Thursday morning to begin with a simple sense of intellectual growth and stimulation. Your mood is likely to be social, friendly, and upbeat. Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign, suggesting physical vitality and ease of adaptability.

Study and curiosity come easily. You will want to socialize with acquaintances who have a variety of perspectives. You will be bored with the same old stories, preferring to find new directions and see the world through the eyes of others.

Sagittarius encourages us to learn through travel and the experience of other cultures.

At the end of the day, (11:45 PM EST), Jupiter stations retrograde at 23° Scorpio. Consider what has been being excavated, explored, and expanded in your life since Jupiter entered Scorpio in early October. Watch how individuals and the culture continue to work through the issues of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Examine where you’ve/we’ve been and how best to proceed when Jupiter moves forward on July 10th.

 

 

CREATE SPACE FOR AN EXCITING EVENING

Friday, March 9, 2018:

At 6:20 AM EST, we reach the 3rd Quarter Moon. This is a stressful square aspect formed between the Pisces Sun and the Moon in Sagittarius. It is time to let go of something that has been developing over the past 3 weeks.

Both Pisces and Sagittarius are mutable signs, this is not anything that you would consider high stress as mutable signs are adaptable, not making much of a fuss even if they don’t necessarily agree with each other. The letting go should be almost effortless.

The Sagittarius Moon joins with assertive Mars and forms a lovely trine with Uranus on Friday evening, offering a potentially exciting evening. This is not a night to stay home alone. Get out into the world to engage with others who will make your heart sing.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:28 PM EST until she enters Capricorn at 4:52 AM EST on Saturday morning. 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.

BUILD YOUR FUTURE

Saturday, March 10, 2018:

By the time you awake on Saturday morning, the Moon has entered mature, authoritative, and disciplined Capricorn. Throughout the day, there are stressful aspects from the Moon to Venus, Mercury, and, finally, a conjunction with Saturn at 9:05 PM EST.

You are likely to be strongly aware of a renewed need to build structure and planning around the dreams that you have recently been swimming in. You are newly aware of the limitations of time and the reality of aging. You are motivated by this pressing and sobering reality. Consider the structures that you need to build to create the future you desire.

As the day progresses, Sunday morning’s aspects come clearly to the table. It is a mixed bag indeed but first, you will face a challenging square from Mercury to Saturn (2:00 AM EST, Sunday morning). You may feel that it is hard to make yourself understood and the seriousness of your mind and thinking may feel heavy and even depressing. Saturday evening is best used in a serious study, preparing for, planning, or building for your future.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:28 PM EST Friday night until she enters Capricorn at Saturday morning at 4:52 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

COME OUT OF HIDING

Sunday, March 11, 2018:

Sunday continues with the cautious, authoritative Capricorn Moon and the lingering Mercury square to Saturn. Life does not feel inconsequential or light. However, there are powerful and exciting aspects being formed early in the day. Yes, continue to plan for your future even as you allow excitement and empowerment to move you.

At 7:22 AM EST, Mars forms a smooth flowing trine aspect to Uranus, pushing you into intense excitement or powerful anxiety. Which will it be? Make a plan that allows space for excitement. Consider what began in February of 2017 and see how this weekend’s excitement or anxiety stems from that. Watch and consider cultural and political changes. Expect the unexpected.

This may offer new perspectives as you move forward with confidence in your most progressive ideas and goals.

At 7:56 PM EST, the Sun, still in Pisces, forms a lovely sextile to powerful Pluto offering the opportunity to attract and hold attention with your innate sense of self. Find and build confidence as you look into corners of your personality that have long been hidden.

“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…”

CONTEMPLATE THE SEEDS OF A NEW STUDY

Monday, September 25, 2017:

The week begins with seriously mixed signals. The Moon in Sagittarius provides an optimistic atmosphere, an idealistic view, and an expansive vision of the future.

However, it will be largely overshadowed when, at 10:35AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of thought and communication forms a challenging square aspect to realistic, hardworking Saturn. Saturn provides limitations and restrictions in order for us to face the reality of our responsibilities. This is not an easy or a fun transit but it will push you to do what needs to be done in order to develop mature clarity in your thoughts and plans. The cycle between Mercury and Saturn is an annual cycle as Mercury takes approximate a year to move fully around the ecliptic.

Think back to what you were thinking, planning, or studying in November of 2016. As this is the Third Quarter Square of this cycle, it is time to begin wrapping up and finalizing that project, study, or thought process.

Now is the time to consider what serious new project, study, or contemplation you want to begin when the new cycle begins in approximately 2 months. As you consider releasing the past, begin contemplating the seeds of the future. Difficult challenges that come your way on Wednesday will point you in the direction of what part of your life is winding down or preparing to be moved in a new direction.

 

A MATTER OF BALANCE

Tuesday, September 26, 2017:

With Monday’s intellectual challenge (Mercury square Saturn), winding down you will be more attuned to the easy going Sagittarius Moon on Tuesday. With the Moon in Sagittarius, you tend to feel positive about the direction of your life. Your thoughts turn in the direction of expanding your philosophical perceptions, a desire to gain greater understanding of your place in the world and culture, and to view how others fit into this larger view as well. You want to see through the eyes of others to gain clarity and understanding; you also seek adventure with a strong desire for the freedom to travel and see the world.

The only glitch in the system is when the emotional Moon joins with restrictive Saturn at 8:16 PM EDT. As you wind down the day, you are reminded that you still have reality to consider. You may want to engage with travel and freedom, but there is still your job, responsibilities, and bills to pay.

It’s okay, it is a matter of balance. The joy of life and the challenges of hard work and responsibilities must exist in harmony, side by side, hand in hand.

 

CLEAR GOALS AND KINDNESS

Wednesday, September 27, 2017:

Wednesday begins with the independent Sagittarius Moon forming lovely aspects to both optimistic Jupiter and eccentric Uranus. This suggests a morning of unexpected pleasures and perhaps unusual surprises. Do keep in mind that the Moon will be VOC* (see below) between 7:09 AM EDT and 12:25 PM EDT. Keep a low profile and enjoy whatever the morning offers.

At 12:25 PM EDT, the emotional environment will change considerably as the Moon leaves joyful Sagittarius behind to enter disciplined Capricorn. While the Moon is in Capricorn, your focus will move toward more serious, realistic issues. Your attention will turn toward the practical and necessary steps you need to take at this time of your life.

This is a great afternoon to work on developing clear goals and plans in significant areas of your life. Given the option you will likely choose work and duty over fun or emotional connections. Please be cognizant of how you treat others. Sometimes when the Moon is in Capricorn, we can be so responsible, serious, and practical that we forget to be kind.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:09 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 12:25 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.

 

STANDING IN YOUR POWER

Thursday, September 28, 2017:

Very late Wednesday night, we reach the First Quarter Moon with the Moon still in serious Capricorn. This offers a simple reminder to look back at the New Moon on September 20th and consider the seed you planted at that time and take action to move your intention forward.

Also, while you slept very early Thursday night, expansive Jupiter (at 27° Libra) opposed unconventional Uranus (at 27° Aries). This suggests the possibility of a large, unexpected surprise that has its roots in something that began between mid-2010 and the beginning of 2011.*

When you think of the cycle between Jupiter and Uranus, understand that it is a cycle of expanding the unusual, enlarging the revolutionary mind. Whatever began in 2010 and 2011 shows its full results now? What personal internal revolution did you begin at that time? Where has it brought you?

Pluto turns direct at 3:36 PM EDT after having been retrograde since April. Some area of deep inner contemplation is complete; you are ready to stand more fully in the light of your own power. Wherever 16 degrees Capricorn falls in your chart, will help you understand the area of this personal empowerment.

*Googling political issues of that time (mid 2010 – early 2011) will surprise you… as will your own calendars and journals. You can’t make this stuff up.

 

MEDITATE, DREAM, CREATE

Friday, September 29, 2017:

The disciplined Capricorn Moon will be with us throughout Friday. Other than a bit of anxiety or excitement around 7:20 PM EDT, the daytime hours are stable, steady, and serious

At 8:11 PM EDT. Venus, the planet that represents our personal values of love, beauty, and resources forms an opposition aspect to Neptune, the planet of illusions and dreams. This can be a very romantic connection; do enjoy the romance but remember that Neptune will cloud your vision, you may have those rose tinted glasses firmly affixed and may wake up a few days later with a whole different understanding of the situation.

In exploring the entire cycle of Venus and Neptune, consider what romantic (or otherwise beautiful) vision around love or money began in January of 2017. What do you see your choices at that time have created over the past 9 months?

This is a great day for imagination, meditation, dreams, and visions. This is not a great day for clarity, precision, or accuracy. Dance, paint, meditate, dream.

At 8:42 PM EDT, Mercury enters Libra after being in Virgo for the past three weeks. Allow your thoughts to turn toward love and beauty. You and those around you will be more willing to compromise and able to see issues from other perspectives.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:14 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius shortly after midnight (12:41 AM EDT Saturday morning). 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.

DIFFERENT DRUMMER

Saturday, September 30, 2017:

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

Following the last few serious days of mature stability, courtesy of the Capricorn Moon, on Saturday, you awake to a very different emotional environment. At 12:41 AM EDT, the Moon enters innovative, open-minded Aquarius putting issues of humanitarianism in the spotlight.

Saturday will be best utilized by seeking situations where you can engage with like-minded others for the purpose of improving the plight of all. Aquarius is an Air sign, engaging us in unusual intellectual pursuits that will forward the culture in revolution or innovation. You may feel inclined toward unexpected insights, rebellious ideas, and spontaneous actions.

The afternoon and evening bring lovely flowing aspects to both mental Mercury and the all-powerful Sun. Meet with community, allow ideas and plans to flow. Move your life forward in unusual. unpredictable ways. This is a day to go your own way, with others of like mind, not a day to follow the conventional crowd.

 

PUSH STEADY

Sunday, October 1, 2017:

Sunday has some similarities to Saturday as we continue working with others for the betterment of the whole human race.

However, there is a powerful drive now that will push you firmly forward. With directive Mars forming a beautiful trine aspect to highly influential Pluto at 7:36 PM EDT, you have the wherewithal to propel your agenda forward with power and assurance. You may notice a strong drive to excel or succeed in some situation that has the potential to bring very positive results.

Throw yourself wholeheartedly into whatever began around October of 2016. Think back to that time. What powerful intent were you focused on at that time?  Your determination is very strong. Push steady with concentration; the time is at hand.
