Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: January 22, 2018 through January 28, 2018

 

“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force it sap and stands confident in the storms of Spring without the fear that after them may come no Summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

CONSTRUCTIVE ACTION

Monday, January 22, 2018:

If you head outside in the wee hours of the morning, you will see Mars and Jupiter at the highest point of the ecliptic, still moving through the deeply intense sign of Scorpio. Jupiter’s expansive nature has been opening doors and windows on dark and hidden issues; secrets have been and continue to be exposed. Mars has brought anger and the demand for change in the area of these hidden issues.

Allow yourself the vulnerability to expose the truth of what you have hidden; turn your anger and rage into constructive action. Major change is possible. Put your shoulder to the grindstone.

The Moon entered Aries as the day began, providing much incentive to push forward on a direct, forceful path.

 

 

USING YOUR VOICE

Tuesday, January 23, 2018:

Head outside again (I know it is unlikely… but some of you might!) in the wee hours of the morning before the Sun rises. The pre-dawn sky holds a story. Between 5:50 AM EST and 6:50 AM EST, authoritative Saturn, communicative Mercury, and empowered, often times destructive, Pluto, are seen rising in the east before the illumination of the Sun moves into view at sunrise (7:28 AM EST).

With the Sun in Aquarius, it is the only one of these four planets that is not in heavy, restrictive, duty-bound Capricorn. What does this mean to you? Individually? Culturally? How do you see this reflected?  Think about this simply.

I suspect that most of you are working very hard to bring a powerful change to your lives (and the lives of others) by using your voice with self-respect, determination, and integrity.

On the heels of all the work this week brings, the quirky, brilliance of the Aquarian Sun offers relief and intellectual awakening. Watch the Sun as it shows itself over the horizon.

Consider all the powerful, even revolutionary change possible as you awaken and do the work necessary to bring your message to those who need your voice.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) after 11:15 PM, she will enter Taurus at 8:40 AM EST on Wednesday. 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.

 

 

LISTEN – SPEAK TRUTH

Wednesday, January 24, 2018:

Wednesday’s pre-dawn horizon continues to be dominated by Saturn, Mercury, and Pluto showing themselves rising in the East shortly before the wild Aquarian Sun. Serious conversations regarding business and government continue to precede change.

The Love BIrds by Scooby13 via Wiki Media

At 8:40 AM EST, the Moon, settling down after her assertive stretch through Aries, enters stabilizing and comfort-seeking Taurus.

Wednesday afternoon sees Mercury coming into full contact with Pluto. Those serious talks that have been right on the tip of your tongue (or hidden below the surface) are now ready to come forward to shift the very ground you stand on.

Powerful conversations are likely to change the ‘lay of the land’. You may hear things you didn’t expect to hear, you may say things you have wanted to say but weren’t prepared for the results. Now, the time is right.

You likely have very little idea of how the words spoken now will change things but a seed is planted that will grow over the coming months. Much is brewing beneath the surface, Pluto’s work is done in darkness. Pay attention to conversations; listen between the lines.

At 5:21 PM EST, the Taurus Moon forms a stressful square aspect to the Aquarian Sun, pushing you to choose between comfort and necessary, revolutionary change. You have a better idea of what must be done than you may admit to yourself. Get clear.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Taurus at 8:40 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.

CREATE BEAUTY AND COMFORT

Thursday, January 25, 2018:

Thursday begins with a lovely sextile aspect from mental Mercury to expansive Jupiter. You are able to see the advantages and the growth possible from whatever conversations have been occurring over the last few days. Whatever that needs to be said or exposed to bring further clarity, comes more easily and creates less stress.

The Moon continues through steadfast, loyal, sensual Taurus. She makes lovely aspects throughout the day to dreamy Neptune, powerful Pluto, and talkative Mercury.

I suspect that your life will take on a slower, more optimistic tone as you focus on sensual pleasures of love and beauty. Whenever the Moon is in Taurus or Libra, (both are ruled by Venus), make the bed, put flowers on the bedside and make space for love, beauty, and sensuality in your life.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) after 10:17 PM EST. She will enter Gemini at 12:40 PM EST on Friday. 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.

 

 

CONSIDER ADVENTURE AND TRAVEL

Friday, January 26, 2018:

Since early December, Mars has been playing with Jupiter in Sagittarius which is the sign that Jupiter rules. There has been much activity and anger around revelations of dark Scorpionic secrets in the culture and perhaps, in your community, family, or personal life.

At 7:56 AM EST, Mars, the planet of assertion and direct action, enters Sagittarius and begins to assimilate the lessons of the issues that have been revealed. It is time to envision the growth that’s possible and your path forward. Mars will remain in expansive, light-hearted Sagittarius until he enters Capricorn on March 17, 2018.

While Mars is in Sagittarius, you will want to take direct action in-service of your highest ideals. You will also have less tolerance to feeling confined or restricted in any area of your life. This is a great time to seek out adventure, travel, learn about another culture or a new way of thinking.

At 12:40 PM EST, the Moon leaves the sensual sign of Taurus behind and enters curious, information-gathering Gemini. This will be a good weekend for gathering with friends for light conversation and word games.

If you notice yourself aggravated or someone seems cranky in the early afternoon, let it roll off your back. The Moon opposes Mars at 12:53 PM EST. It will pass quickly. Make plans with friends in the evening.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Gemini at 12:40 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.

MENTAL ENGAGEMENT NEEDED

Saturday, January 27, 2018:

You can expect a day of mental activity on Saturday. You will be curious about others, you don’t want to sit still but want to move quickly and experience variety in all things. This is the way of Gemini.

This is not the weekend to sit languidly on the couch, go to a movie or spend time at a meditation retreat. You will be much happier chatting with new friends, reading, something relatively light, teaching, learning, and gathering information about a variety of topics.

Keep active or you will find yourself restless and skittish. You may notice that you have a shorter than usual attention span. If you encounter restlessness in others, you may be impatient as well. Use humor to defuse any challenging situations.

As evening approaches, you may notice excitement tor mental anxiety. In the wee hours of Sunday morning, Mercury forms a challenging square aspect to unsettling, inspirational Uranus. Open your mind and allow unusual ideas, epiphanies, and shifting understandings of your world. Don’t hold too tightly to an opinion, belief, or idea. Thoughts, beliefs, and ideas can change on a dime.

Basically, this is a light-hearted day that requires quick movement and mental engagement. Enjoy as you think outside the box.

 

 

DISMANTLING OLD BELIEFS

Sunday, January 28, 2018:

If you think about the planets as teachers, consider Mercury as the trickster who moves quickly, talks quickly, and wants to chat-up all the students. Uranus is the unconventional teacher, a bit of a rebel offering insights that surprise or shock its students. In May of 2017, these two joined together to begin a cycle or to teach a class of unusual ideas and a new way of thinking. The next time they come together will be in May of 2018. This is a one year cycle.

With a challenging square aspect between them occurring on Sunday, look back to what you were thinking or learning in May 2017. The line of thinking or communication that you began then now needs to be dismantled in order to begin a new conversation or thinking pattern this May. Don’t worry you have between now and May to engage in the process of dismantling.

An upset may occur to push you to release that thinking, you may meet someone who shakes up your thoughts or you may just have wild epiphanies. Allow yourself to begin the process of release.

At 1:57 PM EST, the Moon winds down, moving into Cancer and hoping to sit close to loved ones and relax with a good meal and loving connections.

__________________________________________________________

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

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

Two Brothers Illustration by Elenore Abbott

On Tuesday, Venus leaves Taurus behind to enter the busy realm of Gemini. She loved her time in stable, sweet Taurus and although she leaves with some regret, she immediately moves into busy activity and doesn’t look back.

We barely have time to adjust to that shift when Mercury steps out of the sensitive sign of Cancer to enter the dramatic, playful arena of Leo.

Sunday brings us to the Full Moon in Capricorn, illuminating the importance of family connection to serious effort and accomplishment.

With both Mars and the Sun opposing Pluto in these early days of summer, watch for intensity, power dynamics, and serious challenges. Watch as it plays out in the news and in our political system and in your own personal life.

Maintain stability, breathe, and offer kindness. Spend time determining your most powerful forms of self-care and embrace them fully!

ACCEPTANCE & HEALING

Monday, July 3, 2017:

How are you feeling after the challenges of the past weekend?

At 12:46 PM EDT, when the intense Scorpio Moon forms a supportive trine aspect to the tender Cancer Sun, you are able to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. You understand that difficulties are a necessary part of your path and that half the battle is acceptance.

Acknowledging the reality of your situation may be easier than expected as the Moon forms a lovely trine to Neptune at 5:16 PM EDT. Music or poetry will soothe you deeply this evening, as will a candlelight dinner with loved ones.

At 7:14 PM EDT, Venus forms a sextile aspect to Chiron, showing you the importance of slowing down and paying attention to a healing process that began in late January 2017. Take advantage of this soft moment as more intensity lies ahead. As always, remember kindness and self-care. Spread tolerance, decency, and benevolence in all directions.

 

SURPRISING REVELATIONS

Tuesday, July 4, 2017:

Tuesday carries with it a great deal of vitality and activity as the Scorpio Moon forms supportive aspects to powerful Pluto and action-oriented Mars. You will be amazed at how much you can accomplish by focusing your attention on necessary projects.

At 8:11 PM EDT, lovely Venus, the planet of love, values, and resources, enters inquisitive Gemini. She is not happy to leave Taurus where she has been since June 6th. Steadfast Taurus is her favorite place as she indulges in sensuality and comfort.

Now, as she enters active Gemini, she will consider her options regarding love and money.  She will be interested in exploring what is available without settling down. In Gemini, Venus is flirtatious, inquisitive, and restless.

A square aspect between mental Mercury and unconventional Uranus at 8:51 PM EDT colors the entire day and its influence is felt into Wednesday. Watch for sudden communications, surprising revelations, excitement, or anxiety. Think twice or count to 10 before speaking. Ask yourself: “Is it true, is it necessary, is it kind?”

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:35 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 1:08 AM EDT on 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 any significant future impact.

 

HONOR YOUR PATH

Wednesday, July 5, 2017:

Cinderella by Elenore Abbott via Wiki Commons

We can anticipate powerful shifting energy before Wednesday comes to a close.

When the day begins, the Moon has left the deep emotional space of Scorpio behind to enter Sagittarius, the sign of philosophical expansion and exploration.

At 8:19 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet representing your manner of thinking and communicating, leaves the inward sign of Cancer to leap into playful, boisterous, and expressive Leo. Your conversations will become more animated and dramatic over the coming days.

At 8:46 PM EDT, the affectionate Cancer Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to mystical Neptune. Following on the heels of this aspect, the Sun forms a challenging square aspect to idealistic Jupiter at 10:43 PM EDT. These two overlapping cycles, one involving dreams, imagination, and the loosening of boundaries (Sun and Neptune) and the other involving your higher philosophical understanding of this life (Sun and Jupiter) will be prominent in your experience moving through both Wednesday and Thursday.

The first aspect (Sun and Neptune) is a cycle of developing compassion and sensitivity, mystical dreams, and deep, devotional spirituality. This cycle began at the very beginning of March. Did you plant a seed at that time that now opens onto a smooth path ahead?

The second of these cycles (Sun and Jupiter) is a cycle expanding your higher philosophical understanding. This cycle began in late September of 2016 as you planted a seed of opportunity and deep understanding. How far has that seed grown? It is time to begin looking forward to the start of a new cycle and a new seed to be planted in September 2017.

Clearly, these two cycles are working together to bring awareness to your philosophical understanding and spiritual growth. Honor your path.

 

A NEW UNDERSTANDING

Thursday, July 6, 2017:

Thursday, you can expect to continue working with your own understanding and exploration of your path forward. We are all assimilating the cycles that were highly activated on Wednesday. Spend time on Thursday in the active contemplation of your philosophical and spiritual understanding of your place in the world. Write an essay on where you find yourself.

The Moon is in idealistic, expansive Sagittarius throughout the day. Sit down with friends and plan a trip. Open up a world map and consider what part of the world that you have never seen but would like to experience.

Allow the outside world to take care of itself, set your concerns and worries aside.

Seek out new experiences, pleasures, and those friends who expand your view and understanding. Is there a culture, a philosophical understanding, or a new way of thinking that calls your name? Search it out.

 

HARMONIOUS, EASY DIALOGUE

Friday, July 7, 2017:

As Mercury, the planet of communication and our thinking, moves quickly through creative, dramatic Leo, he forms a delightful sextile aspect to lovely Venus in talkative Gemini. This combination is a splendid way to start the day, encouraging easy, open dialogue and facilitating communications of all kinds.

A flowing trine aspect between the Sagittarius Moon and eccentric Uranus at 10:12 AM EDT brings stimulation and excitement to new ideas and the way in which you perceive the world around you.

At 1:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters prudent Capricorn shifting the mood of the day dramatically. Just when the week is about to end, you are likely to feel more ambitious, responsible, and committed to your work. You may accomplish more on Friday afternoon at your job than you did in the previous 4 ½ days. Anticipate bringing a seriously mature focus to the weekend ahead. You may indeed be happy to bring work home.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:12 AM EDT until she entries Capricorn at 1:45 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.

 

“Satan Watching the Caresses of Adam and Eve” by William Blake

 

WATCH FOR EXCESS/ HOLD STEADY

Saturday, July 8, 2017:

Saturday may not hold a lot of excitement but it will also hold very little anxiety or stress. It will be a great day for quiet contemplation, time alone, or pushing toward accomplishments and achievements.

Things are very quiet astrologically until 6:05 PM EDT when the serious Capricorn Moon forms a curiosity driven sextile aspect to elusive Neptune. Go ahead and open a bottle of wine and settle in for a quiet evening.

At 6:45 PM EDT, the Moon forms a square aspect to expansive Jupiter, so be sure to put away that bottle of wine before you empty it on your own! Keep watch for excess throughout the evening.

The Full Capricorn Moon is exact shortly after midnight (technically, on Sunday in Eastern Time). Be aware, this is an extremely powerful and uncomfortable Full Moon, not the night for excitement and parties. Tap into your inner empowerment with kindness and hold steady.

 

POWERFUL CAPRICORN FULL MOON/HOLD STEADY

Sunday, July 9, 2017:

The authoritative Capricorn Full Moon is exact in the early moments of Sunday (12:07 AM EDT). The Full Moon is the passionate and energetic peak of each month. Do not under estimate the intensity of this particular Full Moon!

Pluto, Mars, and Uranus are all directly involved as she reaches full intensification. Watch the outer world and anticipate feelings of powerlessness in the face of political realities.

Remember, that it is your responsibility to accept the truth of your situation and work to express kindness and support toward others with an open, generous heart.

If you have planets between 16 and 19 degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), pay close attention to your relationship to power, intensification, and anger in relationships.

If you feel direct internal pressure, please spend time alone. Learn to understand your triggers and practice kindness to yourself and others.

THE MESSAGE IN YOUR DREAMS

Monday, January 30, 2017:

Monday morning eases us into the week with gentle compassion toward yourself and others. After a challenging weekend, these softer energies enable you to release anxiety or hurt feelings

At 6:18 AM EST, the dreamy Pisces Moon makes contact with elusive Neptune. You may want to bring your dreams into your day. Write down those dreams, there are bound to be messages contained within.

Late in the day, the Moon forms sextile aspects (suggesting opportunities and possibilities) to both powerful Pluto and thoughtful Mercury. This offers you the opportunity to present a powerful message in a manner that it can be heard and understood. Who do you need to communicate with? Who needs to hear what you have to say?

On Monday evening, you have the courage and clarity of mind to say what needs to be said.

 

 

UNSETTLED THINKING

Tuesday, January 31, 2017:

Tuesday is the last day of January bringing with it increased excitement or anxiety, depending on your perspective and how your personal horoscope is being impacted.  Enjoy the morning and its relative calm.

When the Moon enters forceful Aries at 4:46 PM EST, and then quickly comes into contact with dynamic Mars. You may see a side of aggression and anger that you would rather not encounter. Remain centered and seek courageous self-determination in any actions that you take.

Throughout the evening, you will feel a growing anxiety or excitement as thoughtful Mercury comes to square unsettling Uranus at 10:31 PM EST. Your thinking and your communications are inspired and defiant.

Watch for originality of thought and powerful epiphanies. Pay attention to your dreams on Tuesday night. Something significant could come through that will change your view of humanity and your place in this human family.

There may be something significant that you need to release at this time. Speak clearly and truthfully regardless of whom you may offend. Even as you do so, maintain kindness and respect. Understand that we all view the world from a distinctly different perspective.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection)

From 12:36 PM EST until she enters Aries at 4:46 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.

FINDING YOUR COMMUNITY

Wednesday, February 1, 2017:

The astrological weather for Wednesday feels light and friendly following on the heels of Tuesday’s intense communications and anxiety.

With the assertive Aries Moon forming a sextile aspect (offering possibilities or opportunities) to the objective Aquarian Sun at 3:51 PM EST, make it a point to join together with your community and friends.

Gather together to plan projects of humanitarian concerns or outright revolution! This is a quickly passing Moon transit; so don’t attach any insistence that these plans occur right away.

Enjoy your social connections and the possibility of a shared world-view. Knowing and connecting with your community will be more important in the future. There will be plenty of opportunities for implementing plans that begin now.

 

 

WATCH BOUNDARIES – EXPAND UNDERSTANDING

Thursday, February 2, 2017:

Don’t be surprised if you wake up Thursday morning in the midst of intensely dark, unsettling dreams. While you sleep on Wednesday night, the aggressive Aries Moon forms difficult aspects with both coercive Pluto and agitated Uranus.

At 8:53 AM EST, when the Aries Moon squares communicative Mercury, it is best to hold your tongue and allow the moment desire to say something you will regret to pass. There is no need to express outwardly any aggravation that enters your mind. Watch those tweets!

At 10:15 AM EST, mental Mercury forms a square (challenging) aspect with expansive Jupiter. Because this transit harkens back to several days after the election, be aware of what is being said in the political arena on Thursday.

Be aware of your words and communications. It may take cautious attention not to say too much to the wrong people or over-share. Do not assume that you are speaking to folks who see the world from your personal world-view.

Any exaggerations could have unexpected consequences in late March.

With all of that being said, if you are with like-minded people or people who are open-minded to your worldview, go ahead and speak your mind. Find the courage in like-minded community to share your perspectives and allow your worldview to expand.

Also, do not automatically agree to anything that is asked of you. It would be very easy to take on more than is appropriate at this time. Pay attention to your personal boundaries. Be aware of what you ask others for today as well. Do not ask for more than you can appropriately expect from others.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:51 AM EST until she enters Taurus at 8:50 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.

 

 

PATIENCE AND STRENGTH

Friday, February 3, 2017:

Last Saturday (January 28), when Mars, the planet of strength, courage, anger, and initiative entered his home sign of Aries, I mentioned taking off the gloves. Mars in Aries looks for places to express aggression and assertiveness.

On Friday, at 10:51 AM EST, lovely Venus, the planet of pleasure, personal values, and diplomacy follows Mars into Aries. Now, she is ready to take off her gloves end join the battle Mars is waging.

As women and men with a feminist perspective, each one of us is now able to assert ourselves in matters that impact the lives of women and the more tender side of our hearts. We will stand up for what is right as it impacts women worldwide.

The First Quarter Moon occurs at 11:19 PM EST, encouraging us to take action on whatever we determined to begin at the New Moon last Friday evening.

At the First Quarter, the stabilizing Taurus Moon squares the eccentric Aquarius Sun. You may feel challenged to develop closeness and affection at the same time that you are dealing with feelings of emotional disconnection and the desire to pull away.

On Friday, you will have the opportunity to work on balancing attachment and autonomy. Be patient with each other.

FOOD, TOUCH, NATURE, LOVE

Saturday February 4, 2017:

Saturday offers a lovely day for earth-based activities. Spend the day outdoors, perusing your seed catalog for the coming spring, or cooking a delightful meal for friends and loved ones.

The Taurus Moon forms lovely aspects to both Pluto and Mercury. This is a day for shared communication and deep feelings. Set aside all the anxiety of the outside world. Pull yourself inward to enjoy nature and the natural world, get or give a massage.

Find reverence in the simple things of life: food, touch, nature, and love.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:41 PM EST until she enters Gemini at 11:45 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.

 

 

CURIOSITY AND COMMUNICATION

Sunday, February 5, 2017:

Sunday offers another great day for enjoying time with your friends and loved ones. However, the time you spend with friends will be very different from Saturday.

On Saturday, you were seeking bodily pleasures (food and touch) and calm stability (courtesy of Taurus).

Sunday, with the Moon now in talkative Gemini, you seek conversations, the expansion of your ideas, curiosity, and intellectual growth. The friends you want to spend time with on Sunday are probably a very different group than those you want to spend time with on Saturday. Seek out the people you can communicate with on an intellectual level, enjoying ideas and conversations.

As the evening approaches, take those friends with you to the cinema.  At 5:54 PM EST, the Gemini Moon forms a square aspect to elusive Neptune. Your imaginative nature comes alive and you will enjoy losing yourself in a poetry reading or a film.

EXPAND YOUR THINKING

Monday, July 11, 2016:

The week begins on an interesting note indeed. The Moon is in Libra throughout the day suggesting a natural state of balance and calm. However, I suspect this will not necessarily be the case.

At 3:28 AM EDT, Mercury, which represents our mind functions and communications, forms a challenging square transit to Uranus, the planet of innovation and discord. We can expect excitement that threatens to cause upheaval within our minds or communications with others.

Last week on Thursday, Mercury opposed Pluto. Now, a new conversation or thinking pattern comes into focus that is an extension and expansion of the deep conversation at that time. What were you thinking about last Thursday? How has it led to excitement or anxiety now? Perhaps, there is something new that you need to be thinking about or a new study that is calling you.

At 8:52 PM EDT, the Libra Moon comes to the First Quarter phase. The Libra Moon forms an aspect of struggle or argument to the Cancer Sun. Is there a conflict between your emotional desires and your social or romantic needs?  You must allow each side of this challenge space to express itself and grow. Take a significant step forward in what you began at the Cancer New Moon on Monday, July 4th. We are all in the same boat, so be patient with others.

 

VULNERABILITY = INTIMACY

Tuesday, July 12, 2016:

Tuesday begins with the Moon still in Libra, mirroring the excitement or discord of Monday as she opposes Uranus in the early morning hours.

The top significance of Tuesday is the entrance of Venus into Leo where she will remain until August 5th. While Venus was in Cancer (starting on June 17th), our expression of love was sensitive, emotional, and sentimental. As Venus enters Leo, we turn the expression of love to playful generosity. We want to show, provide, and receive grandiose, dramatic, and playful expressions of love. We are drawn to flamboyance and our need for recognition and appreciation is powerful.

The Moon enters Scorpio at 4:53 PM EDT bringing our emotional nature into deep, intense waters. We are not interested in superficial contact; we long for intimacy and yet, may be fearful of the vulnerability necessary to develop that intimacy. Expressing authentic vulnerability is the quickest way to true authentic intimacy.

 

TURN UP THE HEAT

Wednesday, July 13, 2016:

Illuminata by Nasrah Nefer via Wiki Commons

Illuminata by Nasrah Nefer via Wiki Commons

On Wednesday, the Scorpio Moon forms a dreamy trine aspect to Neptune at 4:46 PM EDT. With both the Moon and Neptune in water signs, we may experience a sweet flow, a space of dreaminess or spiritual transcendence. Perhaps, you just want to open that bottle of wine as soon as you get home from work! This is a brief aspect but can feel sweet enough to pay attention to. ☺

At 8:46 PM EDT, Mercury follows Venus into Leo bringing our thoughts to the dramatic, playful expression of love. Leo is a fixed Fire sign, hot and steadfast. With Mercury in Leo, our minds burn deep and steady. We want to express loyalty, playfulness, and generosity in our interactions. Our communications and our imaginations increase in Leo. The stories we tell become more colorful and we may be prone to exaggeration. We feel the heat of fire increase!

On July 22nd, the Sun will also move into Leo bringing Venus, Mercury, and the Sun to the party. Speaking of a party, go ahead and plan one between July 22nd and July 30th. Take advantage of this line up of Leo planets.  What a delight.

 

LOOK FOR THE INSIGHT

Thursday, July 14, 2016:

The Moon will be in Scorpio all day on Thursday forming lovely aspects to Pluto, Jupiter, and the Sun during the early part of the day.  Emotional depth and an intuitive understanding of those around you could result in a rich day of connecting with others.

The evening brings a very different energy. As 6:22 PM EDT, the Moon conjunct Mars. The best use of this would be to engage your sexual or physical energy. If that is not an option you may encounter anger, frustration, or discord. If you see this anger or frustration in yourself, get out of the situation and go for a walk or a run. If you see it in others give them space and a bit of time.

Keep in mind that this is a Moon transit. They do not last long; given an hour or so, the whole issue will pass.  As you release the anger you may be able to use this energy to dig deeply and honestly into the issue and find deep insight.

 

EXPLORATION AND ADVENTURE

Friday, July 15, 2016:

When you wake up Friday morning, everything feels lighter!  You can sense the fun, expansiveness, and adventures available. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 5:15 AM EDT leaving the intensity and depth of Scorpio behind. Throughout the day, the only aspects formed are lovely trines to both Mercury and Venus in Leo.

This is a day to open your heart and mind to exploration and adventure. Pack your bags, head out on the open road and find an adventure.

Freedom, independence, and extravagance are the goals. Your enthusiasm, sense of humor, and generosity are contagious.

Let loose; take the day off. Work is not the place to be. You need to enjoy this one.

SHIFT YOUR AWARENESS

Saturday, July 16, 2016:

Saturday promises to be a powerful day. With the Sun in sensitive Cancer forming a square aspect to rebellious Uranus, issues of identity and ego may be powerfully challenged. Give plenty of space to yourself and others who may be responding and behaving in unusual or unpredictable ways.

How has your need for domestic security prevented you from taking certain exciting and possibly, necessary risks?  Ask yourself if that is currently in your best interests. This contemplation could bring about an unexpected shift in your awareness and understanding of yourself and others.

At 5:59 PM EDT, when Mercury conjunct Venus you are ready to express what your heart truly desires without apology.

When the Cancer Sun trines Mars in Scorpio at 11:44 PM EDT, I hope you will be embroiled in a delightful intimate sexual encounter or ‘cutting a rug’ on a dance floor!

This should be a lovely night for physical expression. Do drive safely if you’re on the road, as you may feel invincible. Play safely!

 

FROM SENSITIVITY TO MATURITY

Sunday, July 17, 2016:

Whatever your contemplations, along with whatever you ‘got up to’ on Saturday night reverberate on a deep emotional level on Sunday.  You are presented with the opportunity for a powerful healing response with a Water Grand Trine between the Sun in Cancer, Chiron in Pisces, and Mars in Scorpio. You may feel highly sensitive as you work with deep layers of emotion that are being activated through your thinking and your activities of Saturday.

At 3:33 PM EDT, the Moon enters Capricorn as we pull ourselves together in preparation for the more serious days ahead. Regardless of how much we have explored, experienced, and even transformed over the past few days, now we are reminded of reality, responsibility, and necessary solitude.

We must consider the importance – and even comfort – of maturity and integrity.

MERCURY DIRECT! PREPARE TO MOVE FORWARD

Monday, January 25, 2016:

Once we get through the bulk of Monday, Mercury turns direct at 4:50 PM EST at nearly 15° Capricorn. For several days before and after Mercury turns retrograde or direct, there is a time when it simply seems to stand still. This brings an immense focus to the area of the chart that holds 15° Capricorn. Your thinking or your communications may feel stuck in the area of your life that is represented by the house placement involved.

The Moon is inactive (VOC*) in Leo until 10:46 PM EST when she enters Virgo. I expect Monday to feel like we are anxiously waiting for something to shift. Don’t make any big decisions or start any new projects on Monday. Rest and prepare your heart and mind to move forward over the coming days.

 
DREAMING THE PRACTICAL

Tuesday, January 26, 2016:

The Moon is in Virgo on Tuesday. We tend to gravitate toward practical activities, organization, and detail work while the Moon is in Virgo. However, on Tuesday the Virgo Moon is in a particularly soft and dreamy space, and not nearly as practical as you would expect.

Consider the organization and clarity necessary to develop your dreams. Make specific plans to reach your deepest emotional satisfaction through the development of dreams and beauty. Help others to find their way out of confusion. It may be easier to see their path than your own.

Now that Mercury has turned direct, you will also want to pay attention to health issues. Is there a change that you need to make in your self-care routines? Begin to examine what you want to change. Implement those changes at the next New Moon (February 8th).

You have the ability on Tuesday to ask for exactly what you want directly and honestly. This is a significant day to really get clear about what you want to create in your life.  Attend to the dream of value and beauty in your own heart; create a plan to bring that dream into fruition.

MANAGING DETAILS; IMPROVING SKILLS

Wednesday, January 27, 2016:

On Wednesday, we are able to set any dreams aside in order to engage in the practical organization that is required to move forward.

Wednesday’s Virgo Moon forms aspects to Saturn, Mercury, Pluto, and Jupiter.  Remember, that Virgo is the worker of the zodiac and there is a lot of support in her efforts now. Never underestimate the importance of managing details while the Moon is in Virgo. We all know that any project will deteriorate rapidly without proper attention being given to the small moving parts.

Consider your greatest skills and talents. Where will the development of these skills allow you to support and be of service to your friends, neighbors, community, and the world?

The service we are speaking of here is a service of humility; there is no space for ego’s arrogant stance. What additional skills must you develop in order to increase your ability to help others? How will your most natural skills come to the service of others? These are all good contemplations for Wednesday.

 
SEEK DIPLOMACY; EXPRESS KINDNESS

Thursday, January 28, 2016:

You may wake up feeling a little blah on Thursday; there just doesn’t seem to be the energy necessary to get moving. Expect a slow start on the day. This sense of lethargy will pass as soon as the Moon enters Libra at 10:00 AM EST.

Thursday is likely to be a day of ‘people pleasing’. You may notice that you are concerned with creating balance, pleasure, and harmony between yourself and others. This is a good day for interpersonal negotiations or diplomacy. You may be surprised at the level with which you seem to understand others. Go out of your way to express kindness.

This could be an excellent time for socializing and getting back in the good graces of others whom you have possibly alienated over the past weeks or months. If apologies are in order, make sure they come from a place of deep authenticity, humility and sincerity.

It may be a challenge to make decisions on Thursday, or to make-up your mind about anything that requires a distinct choice. Simply release your concerns about those particular decisions and choices. They can wait.

 
BE AWARE OF VOLATILITY

Friday, January 29, 2016:

Enjoy the early part of the day on Friday. The more challenging side of the Libra Moon develops as the evening approaches.

The square aspect formed between Uranus and Pluto that has been a constant conversation in astrological circles since 2012, is echoing through our lives once again. Friday’s Libra Moon activates that energy (the energy of transformation, destruction, rebellion, and revolution) as she squares Pluto and opposes Uranus. Mercury is echoing this situation also as he lines up with Pluto in the wee hours of Saturday morning. We will talk about that more on Saturday.

This could be a volatile evening; keep that in mind when making plans.

Where are you holding tightly to resistance? What do you know needs to change in your life that you are still resisting? What about the transformation you have already been through over the past few years is not yet complete? Contemplate that question now. Pay close attention to any new places where deep thinking emerges. Follow your curiosity; your mind is seeking new levels of depth in previously unexplored territory.

MAKE SPACE FOR NEW THOUGHTS

Saturday, January 30, 2016:

You may feel a bit restless with the Libra Moon making no aspects (VOC*) all day, along with the more significant aspects of the day! The Moon will not enter Scorpio until 10:51 PM EST.

Mercury made contact with Pluto in mid-December 2015, again on January 22 while retrograde, and will make her final conjunction on Saturday. Our collective thinking is drilling deeply into intense social issues. Think: the environment, racism, guns! Our collective (and individual) thinking must be transformed. Consider all of the conversations in the culture that are changing the thinking of the masses. Listen to the political discourse!

On a personal level, what do you continue to do habitually, that you know is not healthy for you? This is an opportunity to go deep and destroy the core that is beneath the habit, making space for newly empowered thinking.

Another significant aspect of Saturday is a sextile between Venus and Neptune. You can expect your imagination to be dreamy and poetic, your values to be deeply stimulated by beauty or romance. There’s a touch of magic to your relationships even in the midst of the mental intensity of the day.

The best way to manage this day is with patience and kindness to self and others.
Seek inspiration, sensitivity, and whimsy. Read poetry, meditate, and dance.

 
FEEL THE CHANGES

Sunday, January 31, 2016:

On Sunday, we engage with the intensity that the Scorpio Moon is well known for. All emotions are deeply felt while the Moon is in Scorpio, be it passion, sorrow, elation, or desire. We are very motivated by the need to understand what is below the surface in any situation. We are not interested in frivolous conversations or connections.

The Third Quarter Moon is exact at 10:28 PM EST, encouraging us to begin the process of releasing what we began at the New Moon on January 9th. T

Now the Sun (Aquarius) and the Moon (Scorpio) are in square aspect to each other. The square aspect itself creates a level of anxiety or stress. The Sun which represents ‘core energy’ and the Moon that represents ‘emotional need’ come to a point where they are at cross-purposes to each other. Think about the Aquarius Sun and its expansion into new realms; compare that to the Scorpio Moon and its need to be private and even secretive. It is easy to see that they are on different paths and must learn to negotiate. It is within this negotiation that they begin to let go and release what is in a natural cycle of decay.

At 10:41 PM EST, Mercury squares Uranus, once again echoing the issue we talked about on Saturday of empowering and transforming our minds. The connection with Uranus tells the story of the necessity of an unpredictable revolutionary direction of our minds. This speaks to thinking outside the culture. It is moving us toward finding the true, authentic voice that has been so obscured in our world and in our culture.
