Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: October 23, 2017 through October 29, 2017

“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 its 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

WELCOME THE SUN TO POWERFUL SCORPIO

Monday, October 23, 2017:

After we fall asleep on Sunday night and long before we awake Monday morning, the Sun makes its annual ingress into the intensely deep waters of Scorpio. We all recognize this time of year; we feel it in our bones.

Here, in the Northern Hemisphere, the darkness comes earlier each day. The shops are full of goblins, witches, black cats, and ghouls. You will notice that gravestones are cropping up on the neighbor’s lawns. Everyone, from old to young, is encouraged to prepare for the descent into darkness and to face it head on. Scorpio’s reputation is not an easy one!

In order to come out on the other side of darkness, we must go deep, we must encounter our own shadow, and we must face the inevitability of death. When we are able to do so, we are gifted with a transformation of perspective; we become the Phoenix – the beautiful, mystical bird, rising renewed from the ashes of the life left behind.

Scorpio shows us that avoiding the issues of darkness, depth, and death does not serve us. In order for the growth and transformation suggested in Scorpio and the rising of the Phoenix, we must face and transform our darkest shadows.

The Moon is in Sagittarius throughout the day easing us into this profound shift in seasonal energies. Allow the ease even as you feel pulled toward the depth.

 

DEEPENING INTROSPECTION

Tuesday, October 24, 2017:

On Tuesday, you must begin in earnest to adjust to the deepening introspection of this Scorpio season. Both Mercury (the planet of our thoughts, ideas, and communications) and Jupiter (the planet of expansion, philosophy, and understanding) preceded the Sun into this powerful and passionate sign.

No matter how much the Sagittarius Moon may want to keep the day on the lighter side, there is no denying the intensity under the surface. Allow the idealistic, wise Sagittarius Moon to expand your understanding of the deeply hidden issues that are being revealed in your personal life, your community, and in the culture around you.

Notice those in your inner circle of friends and neighbors, pay attention to those you rarely notice, the service providers who bring your food and check out your groceries. Each person you encounter has a profound inner life. Acknowledge their humanity with sincere eye contact and kindness.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:45 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 8:13 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.

 

PLAN FOR FUTURE STABILIZATION

Wednesday, October 25, 2017:

Autumn Landscape by Harald Sohlberg via Wiki Media

With the Moon in Capricorn when you awake on Wednesday morning, you find yourself in a general atmosphere of seriousness. You are aware of your responsibilities, commitments, and the areas of your life that may hold you earthbound.

Throughout the day, the stern Capricorn Moon forms sextile aspects to the deeply intense Scorpio Sun, expansive Jupiter, and dreamy Neptune. This suggests that today is an excellent time to make long term plans that will build more structure and stability into your life. Setting goals designed to create the life you desire through hard work and prudent development is a great way to use the energies of this day.

You won’t want to waste your precious time, attention, or resources on frivolous issues. You are able to see the reality of your situation and understand the steps available that will assist you in moving in the direction of your desires. Even in the midst of this cautious, serious day, you are able to see the possibilities of setting the steps that will support the forward motion of your life. Pay attention to your own integrity and make plans for future stabilization and growth.

With the sextile between the Moon and Neptune at 7:56 PM EDT, save the evening hours for dreaming of the results of all those plans!

 

CLARITY AND EXPANSION

Thursday, October 26, 2017:

The Moon continues through authoritative, mature Capricorn on Thursday. However, her relationship with the other planets is not quite as friendly as it was on Wednesday.

At 6:50 AM EDT, the Moon joins with powerful Pluto, pushing you to begin the day with deep contemplation of powerful issues or difficult power dynamics. Remember, this is a Moon transit and will not last through the whole day but may make the early-morning challenging.

Your confidence grows as the Sun joins with wise Jupiter at 2:09 PM EDT. This begins a one year cycle of expanding awareness through idealism and understanding. This is happening in the powerful transformative sign of Scorpio, the amplification may reveal much of what has been keep hidden in the depths of our awareness and hidden in our culture. Watch for more information on issues that result from the rampant misogyny in our world and the deep wounds we carry from what is held in darkness.

Where in your own life does a light need to be brought to what has been kept in darkness? Being courageous enough to shine a light into dark corners can bring expansion and healing into all those areas that have held such darkness. However, remember that we all are victims of misogyny, understanding and kindness are always appropriate… along with clarity and truth.

 

INTEGRITY IN PARTNERSHIP

Friday, October 27, 2017:

At 8:59 AM EDT, the Moon leaves the serious nature of Capricorn behind to enter the quirky, innovative sign of Aquarius. The Aquarius Moon will be with us throughout the weekend, so as you make plans for the coming days, keep in mind that it is a weekend meant for community building. Consider the importance of adding your voice to issues of humanitarianism and freedom.

At 6:23 PM EDT, we come to the First Quarter Square moon phase. Take time to consider the seeds that you planted at the New Moon last weekend and take action to push that process forward.

At 11:20 PM EDT, loving Venus forms a challenging square aspect to transformational Pluto. This will have a profound impact on the entire weekend so plan ahead. You may encounter energies that are deeply challenging to your closest partnerships or financial concerns; often, those issues are deeply entwined.

If you are involved in a healthy relationship, this can bring your relationship to a new level of connection and depth; although there will likely be some struggle to get there. If there are unhealthy power dynamics, this could signal the beginning of the end to the partnership. Remember, this does not only impact romantic or domestic partnerships but also business relationships and close friendships. Maintain awareness of your own integrity in your interactions with others, romantic and financial.

Shortly after, at 11:24 PM EDT, Mercury forms a sextile aspect to Pluto. You will do well to utilize this opportunity to speak-up and make your needs clear. Make sure your words are laced with kindness.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:23 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:59 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.

RELATIONSHIP TRANSFORMATION

Saturday, October 28, 2017:

Late Friday night, we had two significant transits that will be strongly impacting Saturday.

Lovely Venus, the planet of all that we most dearly value, formed a challenging square aspect to transformational Pluto. This may profoundly impact your closest partnerships, love relationships, or financial concerns. Issues of love and money are often deeply entwined. In your loving connections, this may bring deep conversations and shifting dynamics that may deepen your love connection profoundly. However, if you are in a partnership that is unhealthy, cracks may appear at this time that will widen the gulf between you unless you are willing to do the hard work necessary.

You probably won’t see this shift in sibling or parent/child relationships but in romantic or domestic partnerships, friendships, or business partnerships. Maintain awareness of your own integrity in your interactions; look inward.

Mercury also forms an aspect to Pluto, in this case, a sextile, encouraging you to speak up in a way that is kind and yet, expresses your deepest needs and concerns.

The Moon continues through Aquarius on Saturday allowing you to remain calm and dispassionate, somewhat removed from the difficulty engendered by the conversation between Pluto and Venus. The Aquarius Moon helps us to be able to utilize the opportunity to say what needs to be said without getting carried away in stress or difficulty. Speak your mind with kindness and without too much attachment to the outcome.

 

ACCEPTANCE AND PROCESS

Sunday, October 29, 2017:

Sunday morning finds you in a state of acceptance as the objective Aquarius Moon forms a sextile to stable Saturn at 9:02 AM EDT. You will awake in consideration of the changes the past few days have brought to your love relationship or your connection to other deep values in your life (financial concerns or creative endeavors). Consider and accept reality as you plan the appropriate steps forward.

At 12:22 PM EDT, with the Moon sextile inspirational Uranus, you can tap into the anticipation of a new way of being. Think outside the box of conventional expectations. You can create your life and your partnerships on your own – and your partners’ – terms. Conversations on the changes that have occurred and are occurring will be valuable and continue to move your process forward.

The Moon continues through Aquarius until 7:47 PM EDT when she enters Pisces, now, you can relax into deep dreams-space as you prepare for the upcoming week.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:22 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 7:47 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.

 

 

__________________________________________________________

* 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.

 

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: July 31, 2017 through August 6, 2017

White Rose and Red Rose by Margaret MacDonald via Wiki Commons

“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 challenge 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.

 

We are in the midst of Eclipse Season and life is moving quickly. The energy swirling around us is hot and unpredictable. It is clearly reflected in our political and social climate. Hold steady, breathe deeply, and keep closely connected to those in your inner circle. Look around you, hold the hands of those you love, and offer kindness to everyone you encounter.

SENSITIVE, INTUITIVE LOVE

Monday, July 31, 2017:

Astrologically, Monday presents a very quiet day. The Moon forms a lovely sextile aspect to Pluto at 7:11 AM EDT. This will color a great deal of the day with a sense of empowerment. You may be able to release something deep within your heart that has fulfilled its purpose and is better left behind.

At 10:53 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, enters emotional, moody Cancer. Since July 4th, Venus has been moving through the inquisitive, restless sign of Gemini. This transit has created a state of curiosity regarding our deepest held values.

With Venus changing signs, your nervous state of flightiness settles into deep emotion. You have come to understand the importance of protective sensitivity and intuitive, nurturing care in your love relationships and all your personal relationships.

Venus is moving quickly through the signs and will leave behind this loving space soon. Venus will move on and start seeking loyalty and expressive vitality in Leo beginning on August 26th. For now, even in the face of so much exciting fiery energies, prepare to go deep with your closest intimates in seeking cozy, domestic love.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:11 AM EDT and until she enters Sagittarius on Tuesday morning at 8:02 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.

 

 

OPEN YOUR MIND

Tuesday, August 1, 2017:

If your day begins before 8:02 AM EDT, the Moon will still be in private and introspective Scorpio. At 4:55 AM EDT, the intense Scorpio Moon formed a flowing trine aspect to Chiron, the asteroid that represents our deep healing path. You may awake from dreams that left you with a sense of understanding the direction to take in your healing journey.

At 8:02 AM EDT, the Moon enters Sagittarius where she encourages you to look at the more optimistic side of your situation. This is a day that may bring much learning, understanding, and wisdom. Open your mind to a new, more expansive view. Connect with folks who will show you a new perspective. Open your mind.

At 10:00 PM EDT, the extravagant Sagittarius Moon forms a difficult square aspect to Mercury, the keeper of your thoughts, communication, and logic. Your optimism may be challenged or you may question your own path of understanding. This is a quickly passing Moon transit and is best managed by not engaging in the challenge but simply heading to bed for a good night’s sleep.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) this morning until she enters Sagittarius at 8:02 AM EDT. Clearly, this will impact very little of your day. 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.

 

 

SEEK FREEDOM AND UNDERSTANDING

Diana and Her Nymphs by Robert Burns via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, August 2, 2017:

With the Moon in Sagittarius on Wednesday, you are seeking freedom and respect. This is a day of lightness and moving toward a higher understanding of where you find yourself.

You may absorb learning more easily with this expansive Moon placement. However, you do not want to find that learning in a classroom setting. You want to see the world and understand your place in it from a broader perspective. You want to meet people who think and view the world differently so that you can understand and experience what is new and unusual to you.

Think about what the element of Fire expresses: heat, transformation, anger, and action. There is currently a great deal of Fire showing up astrologically and also in our world in general. We see it clearly in the political discourse and in our own lives. Where do you feel this heat in your own life?

Very early on Thursday morning, Uranus, the planet of unpredictable change and defiance, turns retrograde following its very slow motion over the last few weeks. Where does 28° Aries fall in your personal chart? Stay conscious and be prepared to adapt to any unusual shifts and unexpected change over the coming days.

 

 

EYES OPEN

Thursday, August 3, 2017:

Very early Thursday morning, Uranus, the planet of unpredictable change and defiance, turns retrograde after moving very slowly over the last few weeks. Upheaval and excitement or possibly stress may spark in some area of your life.

Where does 28° Aries fall in your personal chart? Keep yourself awake to all the quickly changing parts of your life. Be prepared to adapt quickly and pivot when necessary over the coming days.

The Moon continues her adventures through philosophical Sagittarius helping you to keep your eyes open particularly when she forms a lovely, flowing trine aspect to Uranus at 5:39 PM EDT.

Enjoy the brief excitement this aspect suggests as the Moon enters serious, hard-working Capricorn at 8:37 PM EDT. Anticipate that Friday will be a day of work or sustained effort.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:39 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 8:37 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.

 

 

STABLE ATTENTION

Friday, August 4, 2017:

Watch the news for power grabs and contentious legal issues coming to a head or coming out of the blue on Friday.

With the square of Jupiter to Pluto perfecting (at 2:48 PM EDT), there will likely be a sense that action is demanded. This is part of the Third Quarter Square. We are releasing powerful energies that began in December 2007.

The Capricorn Moon does its best to keep maturity and reason on the table but it will be a challenge. Do your very best to maintain your connection with Capricorn’s ideals of integrity, realism, and responsible maturity. The dark side of Capricorn is unbridled ambition, pessimism, and fear. You may see that in the eyes of those around you but keep your eyes on integrity and stable attention.

CARE FOR SELF AND OTHERS

Saturday, August 5, 2017:

At 7:38 AM EDT, the conventional Capricorn Moon joins with powerful Pluto. Then at 7:52 AM EDT, the Moon squares idealistic Jupiter bringing our attention directly back to the square between Jupiter and Pluto.

If you maintained a calm state of maturity, stability, and patience on Friday, you did well. However, the test is in full swing on Saturday as the stable yet often times pessimistic and fearful Capricorn Moon plays directly into the power grab that was in full focus on Friday. If these dynamics are not playing out in your personal life, be grateful. Much depends on where and how the Jupiter/Pluto square interacts with your own individual chart.

You can watch the dynamics clearly on display in the social and political landscapes. If this dynamic is problematic in your personal life or those around you, it is your job to approach the situations with kindness toward others and a huge dose of care and deep love for yourself.

 

 

GATHER TOGETHER

Sunday, August 6, 2017:

Sunday offers some relief as the Moon finds her way into innovative, progressive Aquarius. However, the balm provided might not be equal to the level of abatement we wish for, as the universe sets the stage and the buildup to the partial lunar Eclipse, which reaches perfection on Monday at 2:11 PM EDT.

Take the relief that is offered. With the Moon in objective Aquarius, allow your mind to support original thinking and humanitarian understanding. You are encouraged to gather with like-minded folks to prepare for the days ahead as our world dances with such profound uncertainty and upheaval.

Joining together in community, helping each other through the hard spots… This is what we are here for.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:22 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:16 AM EDT. Clearly, this will have very little impact on the day. 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.

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.

STRIVE FOR ACHIEVEMENT

Monday, May 15, 2017:

You may find yourself ready and even pleased to get to work on Monday morning. With the Moon in Capricorn, it is a good time to focus your attention on those things that you want to be known and respected for. Focus on your career, aspirations, and the projects in your life that are worth striving to achieve.

The energy of the Capricorn Moon is conscious, reserved, and practical. This is a time to look clearly at the realities of your experience and take the steps necessary to gain forward motion in your job and accomplishments. You will want to be useful and productive without drama or turbulent emotions.

This is a day to develop clear boundaries and realistic goals, not a time to take risks. Pay attention to the people in your life who have the wisdom of age and experience.  Work on organizational and practical projects and duties.

As the Moon moves through conservative Capricorn, she joins with Pluto at 4:24 PM EDT, asking that you take note of where you may be out of integrity regarding issues of power and control. Pay attention and release.

Happy Birthday to Pierre Curie, Dave Battick, Kathy Holmes, Annelies Smith, Sophie Grenier, and Liesje Smith!

 

 

SIMPLIFY AND SHAKE UP YOUR THINKING

Tuesday, May 16, 2017:

Shortly after midnight Monday night, Mercury left hotheaded Aries behind to enter reliable Taurus once again. Mercury initially entered Taurus on March 31st but proceeded to retrograde back into Aries where it has remained until now. Ideas and plans that have been on the back burner are now ready to be pushed forward. While on the backburner during Mercury’s retrograde, those ideas have been reviewed, reconsidered, revised, and analyzed.

Look for new inspiration and the patience necessary to take slow, deliberate steps to manifest your desires. While Mercury is in Taurus, your thinking is slower, deeper, and more methodical. Your approach to life, in general, is more relaxed; thoughts and plans can be seen from a perspective of simplicity and clarity.

At 1:50 PM EDT, we get a boost of enthusiasm as the Moon leaves serious hard-working Capricorn behind to enter unpredictable, progressive Aquarius. Allow the world to surprise you. Move outside of your everyday mindset. Make it a point to encounter people who will stretch your view of the world. Seek out enlightened forward-looking thinkers to shake up your mind.

Happy Birthday to Henry Fonda, Woody Herman, Janet Jackson, Liberace, and NYC!

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:23 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 1:50 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.

 

 

GATHER IN COMMUNITY

Wednesday, May 17, 2017:

Wednesday brings a simple day with very little astrological activity. The Moon continues through rebellious Aquarius forming easy-going social aspects to beautiful Venus and philosophical Jupiter.

While the Moon is in Aquarius, you are likely to be attracted to people, situations, and circumstances that are unusual and awe-inspiring. You may want to explore what it means to be a true individual without being held back by convention or society. Personal freedom, humanitarian interests, and progressive change take on powerful importance. You may want to break out of whatever box you feel contained in and explore new ideas, beliefs, and cultural viewpoints.

This is an excellent time to consider how your life fits into the wider world of humanity. What is the role that you play in your culture? What can you do in the world to create positive change? How can you join with others to make a difference? The Aquarius Moon spurs us to common human connections with less emphasis on emotional attachment. Find interesting gatherings of people who will expand your thinking.

Happy Birthday to Laurie Cartwright, Diane Doll, and Eric Satie!

 

 

THE BIG PICTURE

Thursday, May 18, 2017:

With all the dysfunction and craziness on display in the news and politics, it is important that we take advantage of joyful, flowing days like today! The Moon continues through unconventional Aquarius keeping our minds open to a bigger picture of life.

You may feel on a roll as all aspects the Moon makes during the day are aspects of positive flow and opportunities. People you encounter are apt to be more approachable than normal and generally in an upbeat frame of mind.

As the Aquarius Moon reaches the midpoint between Saturn and Uranus (forming a sextile aspect to each), we simultaneously enjoy a sense of excitement and stability, individuality, and determination.

At 8:33 PM EDT, we encounter the Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius, you may struggle to understand the cost of your actions and priorities. Keep moving forward as the exact trine aspect between Saturn and Uranus (Friday) will powerfully support forward motion.

As the day ends, the Moon slips quietly into compassionate, fanciful Pisces bringing a gentle sense of the surreal to the next few days.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:33 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 11:52 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.

Happy Birthday to Frank Capra, Bertrand Russell, and Robin Shelton!

 

 

READY FOR AN UPGRADE

Friday, May 19, 2017:

A powerful flowing trine aspect has been building between Saturn and Uranus all week reaching its pinnacle on Friday. This is one of the major astrological influences of 2017 and represents a powerful shift in life as we know it. This aspect formed its first exact ‘hit’ at the end of December of 2016 and will make a final exact ‘hit’ in November of 2017.

Look to your chart for 26° Sagittarius and 26° Aries for more information on where this occurs in your individual life.

This combination of planetary energies can support you in making powerful and even radical change in your life. Uranus brings innovation and inspiration to whatever you are creating, while Saturn offers determination and maturity. Together, you can make unimaginable forward motion or it may simply happen seemingly without effort! Something very significant is ready for an upgrade that will bring greater integrity and inspiration into your life!

On an interesting personal note… I am just now making this connection. Recently, I went to sleep one day and literally, woke up a vegan. Yes, that would be this aspect at work! Let me know how it manifests in your life!

Another significant transit occurs at 10:11 AM EDT with lovely Venus opposing enthusiastic Jupiter. This is a lovely and dynamic combination; be alert to love and other resources being offered. Be careful not to fall into a trap of overspending or over giving. Please try to enjoy this combination. Kindness and generosity can be offered and received.

With the Moon continuing through Pisces, allow yourself to drift in compassionate love and deep pleasure.

Happy Birthday to Leda Wolfe Hoppe!

SUN ENTERS GEMINI:  TALK ABOUT IT!

Saturday, May 20, 2017:

The Moon continues through Pisces on Saturday encouraging us to remain connected to our dreams and our imagination. While the Sun is still in Taurus (until 4:30 PM EDT), you may want to take a nap, meditate, or rest to prepare for the increased energy ahead.

At 4:30 PM EDT, the all-powerful Sun leaves the deliberate, consistent growth of Taurus behind to enter a period of enthusiastic movement. As the Sun changes signs month-to-month, we feel the atmosphere profoundly shifting. Over the past month, there has been the sense of steady, slow, determined movement.

Now, as the Sun comes into Gemini, everything shifts into quick, less stable expansion. While the Sun is in Gemini, you will want to join together with others, share and gather information, and come to understand the perspectives of those around you. You are curious, restless, and inquisitive. You will want to communicate more, explore new ideas, and consider more options.

Watch yourself for the tendency to talk more than you listen. Listening is a skill that we must pay attention to. Your own voice will only reflect what you already know. Learning requires paying attention to others through questions and listening. Show respect to those you encounter with your curiosity, your questions, and your focused ability to listen. You may be surprised at what you learn!

Talk. Communicate. Listen. Learn. Ask questions.

The Pisces Moon becomes VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) at 11:39 PM EDT. Unless you get up awfully early Saturday (the Moon enters Aries at 6:11 AM EDT on Sunday), this will not have an impact. 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.                                                                                                

Happy Birthday to Candi Foss and Cher!

 

 

A MORNING ADVENTURE

Sunday, May 21, 2017:

Bright and early, the Moon enters dynamic, impatient Aries forming an energizing sextile aspect to the Sun which is newly in Gemini. The energy of this combination should not be wasted. Plan ahead to get up early and move quickly into a day of action and adventure.

Get yourself out into nature to watch how quickly the world is changing with new growth and expanding vegetation. A hike or a canoe trip down the river would be perfect for an early morning enterprise.

Later in the day, things quiet down and it will be good to have the afternoon to relax and spend time on your own. At this point in the cycle, the Moon is waning (New Moon on May 25th). Consider holding off on any rash plans, decisions or projects until the Moon begins increasing once again.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aries at 6:11 AM EDT.  Unless you are up very early this will have no impact on your day. 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.

Happy Birthday to Belladonna, Ellen Brown, and Michael Gilman!

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: July 18, 2016 through July 24, 2016

I will begin by saying this looks like a fairly simple week. Other than the transits of the Moon and the Capricorn Full Moon on Tuesday the 19th, we have simple, flowing trine aspects from Mercury to Saturn on Tuesday and from Venus to Saturn on Wednesday. On Friday, the Sun enters the hot, dramatic sign of Leo!

I hope you are all enjoying vacations and hot summer days! I know I am!

I am heading off for a long weekend on a road trip to the coast of Maine. And have lots to do to get ready!

So again, I’m going to keep the post simple and move right into the Dailies.

 

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.

 

FOCUS ON WORK & EFFORT

Monday, July 18, 2016:

I know we all have vacation and summer sun on our minds but this Monday is best suited for ambitious effort and work. If you are heading to the office, you will likely find your work ethic strong and should be able to get a lot accomplished. The ability to remain focused and disciplined is powerful.

At 1:36 PM EDT, the pragmatic Capricorn Moon may surprise itself when an opportunity is presented that can only be managed through listening to your intuition. Don’t fight against it; as the Capricorn Moon sextile Neptune your imagination and intuition may open doors to support a serious or ambitious project

At 9:25 PM EDT, the Moon conjunct Pluto refocuses us on maintaining a more stable approach and firmer control.

 

CAPRICORN FULL MOON: STABILIZE

Tuesday, July 19, 2016:

Tuesday begins with mental Mercury forming a trine aspect to serious Saturn. This signifies the need for clear, stable thinking. Our thinking is serious and our ability to learn or express thoughts and ideas is steadfast.

In late November 2015, when these two planets began their current cycle, we began a thought process that came into full view approximately a month ago. Now, with the trine aspect between them, it is time to release that energy into the world; perhaps, there is a conversation that must be had or a story that needs to be written.

Contemplate the timeframe and allow what needs to occur to flow easily. Over the coming months, the issue will be released and a new cycle of thought development will begin in November of 2016.

At 1:06 PM EDT, the realistic Capricorn Moon forms a challenging square to unpredictable Uranus. This may feel a bit emotionally unnerving. Even as our intellectual process feels solid, our emotions could take an unusual turn by afternoon.

The Capricorn Full Moon is exact at 6:57 PM EDT. This brings the lunar cycle that began on July 4th into full expression. If, at that time, you planted a seed in hopes of creating ‘family’, now you see the full results and the stability of what is developing.

At 11:11 PM EDT, the Moon enters rebellious Aquarius which will reverberate into progressive attitudes and unusual behaviors over the next few days.

 

SHINE ON – STEP FORWARD

Wednesday, July 20, 2016:

Following the stabilization of your  thought process on Tuesday (Mercury trine Saturn), Wednesday offers a similar sense of flow. Between relationship and beauty oriented Venus to determined Saturn, this aspect brings stabilization and sweet delight to the area of relationship and possibly, money (Venus trine Saturn).

A great day to explore your most personal beliefs around finances, to create art, or to simply go out to dinner and hold the hand of your dearest loved one. Your values feel strong and unshakable.

This cycle began in early January with a structuring and stabilization of values, came to its full potential the first week of June, and now flows easily as we release the energy into the world.

The quirky Aquarius Moon encourages us to stay emotionally detached from this process, enabling stabilization to occur without deep emotional turmoil.  Shine your light and step forward with easy.

 

ALLOW FOR SPACE AND FREEDOM

Thursday, July 21, 2016:

With the domestic Moon in open-minded Aquarius, we may have an unusual approach to our home and our loved ones on Thursday. The Moon is happiest in an emotional Water Sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) or even a grounded Earth Sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn).  Aquarius is progressive, innovative, and objective.

Emotions don’t want to be objective, they want to flow like a river and move easily through empathy, mysteries, and tenderness. This is not a day to expect yourself or others to connect emotionally. Give yourself and others space and freedom.

We will all function more easily if we engage in unconventional, innovative projects that express humanitarian concerns rather than personal concerns.

At 6:54 PM EDT, when the Moon sextile defiant Uranus you may receive unexpected news or unusual ideas may seem to come out of nowhere.

At 9:56 PM EDT, the Moon square assertive Mars could spark an argument or internal agitation. It will be best to spend that period of time alone and get to sleep early. It is only a Moon transit, they do not last very long. As long as you succeed in not engaging the energy in the moment it will pass without due impact.

 

PLAY AND DREAM

Friday, July 22, 2016:

By the time we wake up on Friday morning, the Sun will have entered Leo (5:30 AM EDT)! Now, we move into the heat of summer, the height of the Sun’s power. When we think of Leo, we often think of drama, exuberance, and full expression of personality. We may think of Leo’s generosity, playfulness, or his arrogance and grandiosity. Often times, we forget the dignified laziness of the big cats. With the Leo Sun high above, we understand the desire to simply play or sleep. For the coming month, we will all want to vacation, lay in the sun, sleep, and play.

This is not the best time for most of us to be productive, so go ahead, and allow yourself to play.

The Moon enters idealistic Pisces in the wee hours of Friday morning, adding dreamy imagination to our desired play. Allow play and light-hearted joy to permeate the day. Enjoy it to the hilt.

A DAY OF SENSITIVITY

Saturday, July 23, 2016:

You may want to get up early on Saturday morning to engage the brief period of time that the sensitive Pisces Moon sextile the hidden forces of Pluto (exact at 8:08 AM EDT). This brings us face-to-face with an opportunity to deeply engage our deepest shadow side, bringing it to a place of healing and purification.  Spend a few hours in meditation or simply offer your deep wounds to the healing light of inspiration and self-compassion.

With an opposition from the illusory Pisces Moon to expansive Jupiter at 4:25PM EDT, arrange the evening to accommodate emotional sensitivity and optimistic idealism.  Watch any tendencies to drink, drug, or dream more than is healthy for your personal nature.

When you encounter others, keep in mind that they are all in an overly sensitive state of heart and mind. Offer compassion and kindness liberally. Take good care of your heart and the hearts of those around you.

 

BRIGHT LIGHT

Sunday, July 24, 2016:

Sunday morning you will be ready to shake off all the sensitivity and dreaminess you have been embroiled in over the past few days. At 8:32 AM EDT, the Moon leaves her illusions (Pisces) behind as she embraces dynamic impulsiveness (Aries).  You may not have done much on Saturday and you are ready to make up for it by asserting your personal, possibly flamboyant desires on Sunday.

At 12:17 PM EDT, the courageous Aries Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to the expressive Leo Sun.  This bears witness to a day made for full expression, no holds barred.

You will have more bravery and ability to fully express parts of yourself that you often keep under tight wraps. Sing, dance, and speak the words that need to be spoken.

Forget that conservative outfit you may have been comfortable in on Saturday, Sunday you want to show yourself as your most enthusiastic, dynamic, and impulsive self.  Dress accordingly. Allow yourself to be seen in your brightest light.
