ANXIETY & EXCITEMENT

Monday, December 5, 2016:

This week starts quietly with no major aspects to consider. The unconventional Aquarius Moon makes her final aspect, a sextile to eccentric Uranus at 6:23 AM EST. With such an extended period of quiet, we are left with a sense of that final aspect throughout the day.  This could suggest a day of anxiety, nervousness, or excitement without fully understanding where it is coming from.

Feeling unsettled is exacerbated by the upcoming sextile between Mars and Uranus that will be exact on Tuesday. Channeling anxiety into unusual creativity and inspired conversations will provide not only a useful distraction but will also inspire new understanding and growth.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:23 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 11:31 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.

 

 

PLANNING AHEAD

Tuesday, December 6, 2016:

The dreamy, mystical Pisces Moon would love to offer you a day of soft sensitivity and dreaminess on Tuesday. You may even feel your heart turn toward that passive place, and yet, Mars and Uranus have a very different idea in mind.

On Tuesday, Mars, the planet of dynamic action, forms a sextile aspect to Uranus, the planet of unconventional humanitarian change –change that supports the collective. I can’t help but wonder how this will play out in the news this week.

However, for our purposes, let’s stick with looking at where this touches your individual life. Think about what in your life is pushing you to new unexpected action. A sextile aspect (60°) offers an opportunity to explore, to be curious, and to look clearly at possibilities that are presented.

Is there an action that you are considering that makes your heart beat faster?

The cycle between Mars and Uranus is a cycle of pushing yourself to take unusual and possibly, defiant action that supports growth and expansion of humanitarian ideals.

Did you begin something dynamic and unusual in March 2015? That was the beginning of the cycle that is now coming to a close. It is now time to plan and look forward to the new cycle of developing courage and independence that begins in late February of 2017. The attention to any inspirations that arise or anything unusual you hear or see. The most unusual possibilities are sometimes the best to pay attention to.

If you are interested in a deeper understanding of how this plays out in your personal life, contact me for a consultation.

 

 

STAND UP

Wednesday, December 7, 2016:

Wednesday brings us yet another day with a very long VOC* Moon in Pisces. The Moon is considered to be VOC* between the time it forms its final major aspect to another planet in one sign to when she enters the next sign. This time is best utilized in quiet contemplation or routine tasks.

On Wednesday, the Moon’s final aspect is a highly disheartening square to Saturn. This brings a dour feel to the day, as we must work to resist feelings of self-recrimination and depression. Luckily, Moon transits come and go quickly and this will be out of the way before you know it. 😉

Wednesday also brings us the First Quarter Moon, suggesting a struggle between your search for expansion and your desire to remain in deep sensitivity. Consider what seed you planted at the New Moon (last Wednesday) and take action to move that desire and intention forward.

The unusual excitement of Wednesday occurs at 9:51 AM EST when lovely Venus enters rebellious Aquarius where she will remain until January 3, 2017. Venus entering Aquarius will wake you (and us) up to our unconventional humanitarian and even revolutionary values. You are not content to sit home and drink tea with your friends. You are far more likely at this time to understand and follow the need to stand up for your deepest values and beliefs in a direct, innovative, and progressive manner. Your thoughts may turn away from individual love and connection in order to connect and support the greater good of humankind.

Protests and upheaval will be a part of the upcoming weeks. Aquarius must stand up for what is right; Venus refers to your personal values. We must, at this point in time, standup powerfully for our deep values and beliefs.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:05 AM EST until Thursday morning at 5:15 AM EST when she enters Aries.

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.

 

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! 

 

 

COURAGEOUS BELIEFS

Thursday, December 8, 2016:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in dynamic, impulsive Aries. Aries represents the archetypes of the Warrior, the Leader, and the Pioneer. With a sextile aspect formed to Venus at 7:01 AM EST, you are presented with an opportunity to put your most assertive, courageous energy to the service of your beliefs. Several clichés come to mind: “Put your money where your mouth is” and ”Walk the talk”.

You will be given the opportunity on Thursday to speak clearly regarding what is important to you and stand firmly and with conviction in that reality.

At 6:44 PM EST, the Pisces Moon squares thoughtful Mercury, possibly indicating arguments and misunderstanding. Yes, say what must be said. Remember to be conscious of the tone in your voice and other nonverbal cues. Even in a misunderstanding or argument, it is your responsibility to remain respectful and kind.

 

 

EXPAND YOUR PERSPECTIVE

Friday, December 9, 2016:

The Moon remains in hotheaded Aries throughout Friday. This is an active day with the Moon forming a variety of both lighthearted and stressful aspects.  This may well show up as a wild grab bag of a day, presenting you with smooth flowing stability, excitement, and moments of stressful aggravation.

At 4:39 PM EST, the Sagittarius Sun forms a trine (an aspect of excitement and opportunity) with expansive Jupiter. Keep your eyes open in anticipation of possibilities being presented that will open you to a newly expanded view of your life and circumstances. This puts a high positive spin on the day even in the midst of certain momentary aggravations.

Consider dancing with friends or planning an upcoming road trip adventure. Invite a few folks to join you that are new to your group of friends. It is a great day and evening to get a new point of view and an outside perspective.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:07PM EST until 7:41 AM EST Saturday morning when she enters Taurus.

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.

FACING RESPONSIBILITIES; ADJUSTING DREAMS

Saturday, December 10, 2016:

When you wake up on Saturday morning, set aside any unrealistic early-morning dreams (logical Mercury is sextile elusive Neptune at 3:25 AM EST). This brings your attention to a dream or story that began in mid-March of 2016.  At that time, you may have been telling yourself a story that was not terribly realistic. Since that time, you have worked with that story and now must explore new ways to direct the storyline.  Some part of that dream must be released and adjusted in order to begin anew in March of 2017.

At 6:51 AM EST, the Sagittarius Sun joins with restrictive Saturn to begin a new cycle of bringing sharp clarity to your responsibilities. This is a time to look reality clearly in the eye. If you know where (what house) 18° Sagittarius falls in your chart, you will know what area of your life is asking for your effort and hard work. If you look inside your heart, you will know what area is calling you to this serious consideration!

You are now asked to plant a seed of intention, the intention to make serious stabilization a top priority for the upcoming year. What are you being asked to commit to? Plant the seed of that commitment. Prepare yourself to work hard over the coming year (this is a one year cycle) for your deepest desires.

The Moon enters stabilizing Taurus at 7:41 AM EST. Enjoy sensual pleasures, get in touch with nature, get or give a massage, or eat good food. Spend time with folks who offer steadfast comfort. Bring comfort to those you love and all who you encounter.

Saturday offers a wonderful night for lovemaking with a committed partner. Casual intimate connections will be unsatisfying for everyone involved, if you are not in a committed partnership, go home alone.

 

 

A SPARK OF EXCITEMENT

Sunday, December 11, 2016:

Sunday begins with a lovely trine from the Taurus Moon to transformative Pluto. You may feel powerful, sensual, and stable as you move into the day. As the Moon continues through Taurus, it is easy to focus on simple and sensual pleasures.

However, as the day progresses, you may feel anxiety or excitement, just out of reach, right around the corner. What you are feeling is a powerful trine aspect between the vital energy of the Sun and the defiant and exciting energy of Uranus. As the day moves forward, you feel that spark of Uranus in the air.

Again, you may feel that you are waiting for some changing reality without knowing where it is coming from. Keep on the alert for the next 24 hours, watch for unexpected flashes of excitement, anticipation, and innovative ideas. Pay attention to what calls to you. This is a beautiful flow of creativity and excitement. Look for what excites you!

__________________________________________________________
* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit 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.

SHARE LOVE, EXPRESS LOVE

Monday, November 28, 2016:

You may have the sense today that you are holding your breath. Are you waiting for the next shoe to fall? We can see where this is playing out on a cultural and social level but what about in your private life?

Monday is quiet; it is best to allow flow without insisting on focused accomplishment.

We are in the Dark of the Moon with the New Moon coming on Tuesday morning. The Moon is also VOC* until 3:46 PM EST.

Spending time with an inward focus is your best bet.  Once the Moon enters Sagittarius at 3:46 PM EST, you will feel uplifted. The late afternoon and evening will present opportunities to expand your understanding of other cultures, world-views, and manners in which others live their lives.  Open to deep tolerance, understanding, and compassion. Share love. Express love.

The week begins with the Scorpio Moon VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until 3:46 PM EST when she enters Sagittarius. 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.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON: FREEDOM & UNDERSTANDING

Tuesday, November 29, 2016:

The Sagittarius New Moon is exact at 7:19 AM EST. Plant a seed of freedom for your own life and for the lives of all humans. Personal freedom will always leave a bitter taste in your mouth when you know that others do not share your access to those basic freedoms. Therefore, it is important that you plant this seed for the sake of all humans.

At 3:20 PM EST, Venus square Uranus, brings your attention to the more unconventional aspects of your values and you relationships. This energy can bring spontaneous excitement and unexpected change to your usual ways of engaging with others. Expect the unexpected in love and money.

Please take time on Tuesday to do a simple New Moon ritual. You will want to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon and within 24 hours. The Sagittarius New Moon brings powerful energy for the development of freedom and the understanding of the world-view that others hold. Set an intention regarding the ability to share your beliefs and opinions and to hold, with great understanding, the beliefs of others who hold vastly different world-views.
Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, and increase in the upcoming cycle. Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you want to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.
Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

Tuesday’s New Moon at 7 degrees Sagittarius insists that you (we) plant a seed of freedom, perspective, and higher understanding. Plant this seed of freedom for yourself and for the benefit of all humanity.

 

 

ENVISION THE IDEAL

Wednesday, November 30, 2016:

Garden of the Artist at Vetheuil by Claude Monet via Wiki Commons

Garden of the Artist at Vetheuil by Claude Monet via Wiki Commons

Wednesday’s Sagittarius Moon is very active. You may wake with serious or difficult dreams in the early morning hours as the Moon conjoins restrictive Saturn (3:16 AM EST). Allow that energy to shift into excitement and open your thinking to inspiration as the Sagittarius Moon trines electrifying and unusual Uranus at 9:45 AM EST.

The most significant message of the day comes with the Sun’s square to dreamy Neptune at 8:16 PM EST. This energy will resonate through Wednesday and Thursday. Look back at a dream that began in February 2016.  Now it is time to let go of unrealistic aspects of that dream in order to begin a more elevated dream in February 2017.

Begin to consider what you will create out of the cycle you are beginning to release now. You have enough distance and accumulated knowledge to allow the release of the parts of the dream that are no longer viable. Allow yourself to dream, to envision the ideal, to understand impressions, and to work with the intangible that forms the basis of this world. Spread loving kindness.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:08 PM EST until she enters Capricorn on Wednesday at 3:53 AM 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.

 

 

BRING FORTH HOPE AND COURAGE

Thursday, December 1, 2016:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in disciplined, hardworking Capricorn, which offers a day of seriousness and focused effort.

However, at this time we can expect the focus to be less on solitary work and more on working together to reach a powerful goal that has great significance moving forward.

At 10:46 PM EST, impulsive Mars (in humanitarian Aquarius) forms a trine (a free flow of energy) to self-confident Jupiter, powerfully impacting both Thursday and Friday.

Consider what began (personally and culturally) in mid-October 2015. At that time, we began a cycle of expanding strength, understanding our combined wisdom, and fighting for protection. That cycle has now brought us to a point where the floodgates have opened!

Give of yourself to the cause you believe in. Bring hope, give financially, and show confidence in the outcome. The full result of this current effort will be clear in late February. Hold on; use your frustration to pour fourth courage and belief in a better future for all.

 

 

CLARITY AND DETERMINATION

Friday, December 2, 2016:

The optimistic self-confidence and courage you experienced on Thursday remains throughout Friday. However, this is not without complications. As the ambitious authoritative Capricorn Moon makes contact with Pluto at 11:28 AM EST, you may feel overwhelmed by the powerful forces that oppose you.

Maintaining equilibrium may be tricky but when Mercury (the planet of thinking, analyzing, and strategizing) enters Capricorn at 4:17 PM EST you may find yourself viewing the world and your personal situation with a focus on integrity, more interest in self-discipline, and a renewed acceptance of your personal responsibilities.  Gather clarity and determination to focus on the reality of what you know must be done.

At 8:58 PM EST, as the Moon squares defiant Uranus anxiety may kick in. Look for innovative inspiration that will assist you in finding the best path forward. Look in unexpected places. Allow unusual ideas to stimulate a different perspective.

AFTER A SERIOUS DAY, KICK UP YOUR HEELS!

Saturday, December 3, 2016:

Saturday begins slowly with the Moon VOC* moving through conventional, serious Capricorn. Until the Moon enters unconventional Aquarius at 2:35 PM EST, it will be best to utilize the day by engaging in serious but simple routine activities that will forward your personal ambitions. You will feel best and be able to enjoy Saturday evening and Sunday more thoroughly if you get something concrete, however simple, accomplished.

Your best use of the day will be solitary. We all need time alone and Saturday before 2:43 PM EST is a great time to claim for the enjoyment of solitude.

Once the Moon enters unconventional Aquarius, you can let down your hair, set aside the serious mask you wore throughout the morning and make plans to engage with others Saturday evening or Sunday. The past few weeks have been terribly serious and challenging. Saturday evening is time to take a break, kick up your heels, and find gatherings of like-minded people to commiserate or party with.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:17 AM EST until 2:43 PM EST when she enters Aquarius. 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 INTEREST

Sunday, December 4, 2016:

Everything feels lighter on Sunday. This is a simple day with the Moon in unconventional progressive Aquarius. A sextile from the Moon to the Sagittarius Sun at 3:57 PM EST offers curiosity and excitement as you seek new interests, ideas, and ways of moving forward.

This is the Crescent Moon Phase; that the seed you planted at Tuesday’s New Moon needs to be watered with your explorations and commitment to what you intend to grow. What can you learn now that will help you take a step forward next Wednesday at the First Quarter Lunar Phase? The process today is exploration and curiosity.

Enjoy time with like-minded friends and community members. Remember, we all need each other; the energies that we add to the collective are of major importance to all of us at this time in our shared history.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:34 AM EST until she enters for now at 4:35 AM 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.

__________________________________________________________

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: November 7, 2016 through November 13, 2016

With Mars, Venus, and Mercury all changing signs this week, we can anticipate an unusually busy week with many unexpected shifts occurring upon unstable ground.

Drago en Orquidea Luz by Felipe Juan Artista via Wiki Commons

Drago en Orquidea Luz by Felipe Juan Artista via Wiki Commons

Very early Wednesday morning (in EST), Mars, the planet of courage, assertiveness, anger, and possibly even violence leaves steadfast Capricorn behind to enter the unpredictable realm of Aquarius. Pay attention to your actions and the actions of others. You can anticipate folks resorting to unexpected, unusual, and erratic ways of acquiring their desires. Mars will remain in Aquarius until December 19th.

Near midnight (in EST) on Friday, Venus, the planet of diplomacy, partnership, and refinement leaves the freedom of Sagittarius behind to enter authoritative, conservative Capricorn. In Capricorn, the planet of love and our resources seeks serious commitment to our personal values within these areas. In Capricorn, Venus demands hard work to acquire our desires. Venus will remain in Capricorn until December 7th.

On Saturday morning, Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and perception leaves the intensity of Scorpio behind to move into freedom seeking Sagittarius. Your thoughts should lighten up as you plan a way to expand your awareness of the larger world around you. Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 2nd.

MAKE THE EFFORT TO AFFECT CHANGE

Monday, November 7, 2016:

The week begins with the Scorpio Sun sextile transformative Pluto. This indicates that an opportunity is offered that will bring powerful internal change. This may be a change of heart, change of mind, change of perspective, or any combination of these.

However, the square aspect formed between the unconventional Aquarius Moon and the suspicious Scorpio Sun brings a serious challenge to any change being contemplated.

Do not shy away from the effort. If you see an opportunity offered, take it. Perhaps it is not an easy process, but the work involved will serve you well in the days and weeks to come.

Consider your most private struggles to move toward change. Make the effort to see these struggles objectively. Look at alternative viewpoints and understand the necessity for change.

This is the First Quarter Square of the lunar cycle. It is time to take the appropriate action. Do you know what that action is? What seed did you plant at the New Moon? Push it forward with an action taken on Monday.

The Moon trine expansive Jupiter and is sextile serious, hardworking Saturn which supports forward motion. Go ahead. Make the effort.

DON’T FORGET TO VOTE TOMORROW.

 

 

VOTE: THEN TURN INWARD

Tuesday, November 8, 2016:

For Tuesday’s weather report, I will avoid thinking or mentioning too much about the fact that this is the day of the US presidential election. The only thing I will say about it is: “Please Vote”. If possible, do your voting before 8:55 AM EST or after 4:46 PM EST.  Regardless of when you vote, VOTE.

The revolutionary Aquarius Moon forms a supportive sextile to sweet Venus just before the Moon goes VOC*. This allows our minds and hearts to maintain some availability and openness throughout the day.

At 4:46 PM EST, when the Moon enters elusive, susceptible Pisces we may find it difficult to understand how to move through an environment that feels vague, intangible, and confusing.

You may be tempted to spend the evening in front of the television or drinking heavily. Time on your meditation cushion will serve you, the culture, and the planet better. Go inward. Settle your own internal demons. Watch as the cards fall where they may. Know that you have done all that you can do.

Everyone you meet is feeling the stress. Offer kindness and rich compassion to yourself and all you encounter.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:55 AM EST until she enters Pisces 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.

 

 

COURAGE MEETS REVOLUTION/ INNOVATION

Foresto Marianini vaso di Fiori by Elisa Marianini via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, November 9, 2016:

In the midst of the fluid, surreal environment we find ourselves in (Moon in Pisces), courageous Mars the planet of courage, assertiveness, and even violence leaves the sign of the adult (Capricorn) behind to enter the unpredictable realm of the Revolutionary (Aquarius).

Unusual and unconventional ways of achieving your goals may come to mind and be rapidly acted upon. Channel this energy with some caution and integrity. Put your energy into humanitarian goals rather than personal ones.

Pay attention to your actions and the actions of others. You can anticipate folks resorting to unexpected, unusual, and erratic ways of acquiring their desires. Mars will remain in Aquarius until December 19th.

At 7:50 PM EST, the mystical Pisces Moon squares cautious Saturn suggesting that idealism may turn to frustration. You may experience the feeling of frustration and exhaustion. Shortly after midnight when the Pisces Moon trine the Scorpio Sun, your energy will return, bringing with it a brighter day on Thursday.

 

 

CLARITY, COURAGE, DETERMINATION

Thursday, November 10, 2016:

On Thursday, the intuitive Pisces Moon forms a trine aspect to the transformative Scorpio Sun and Mercury (also in the profoundly intense sign of Scorpio). You may breathe a sign of relief or acceptance. When the Moon squares lovely Venus at 6:15 PM EST, you may not understand the implications as you move forward into this new state of relief or acceptance.  You (and all of us) have held much anxiety over the past weeks and possibly months!

At 8:45 PM EST, as the Moon enters assertive Aries, your confusion and lack of clarity is released. You feel stronger, more determined, and ready to take on whatever challenges lay ahead. Be careful not to embody an attitude of arrogance. Allow your thinking to settle down into a kinder space as the Aries Moon approaches a sextile to Mars at bedtime (EST). Friday will bring more clarity, more courage, and more determination to move ahead. 

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:17 PM EST until she enters Aries at 8:45 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.

 

 

ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER

Friday, November 11, 2016:

You may feel inpatient with Friday’s lack of activity after the buildup of anxiety over the past weeks. You may feel more on edge than you expected you would at this point in the process. We are now three days into the outcome of the USA elections. Have we settled yet?

At 6:46 PM EST, when the Moon opposes optimistic Jupiter you may see your need to continue the development of courage and your need to bring others into your inner circle to help pave the way.

When the assertive Aries Moon squares compulsive Pluto at 10:09 PM EDT, you may have difficulty managing the intensity you find yourself engaged in. However, when the Moon trine Saturn shortly thereafter, you realize that you are able to stabilize the situation, maintain a mature handle on your circumstances, and utilize the situation for personal growth. Moving through this day is really just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other without engaging in your own self-created inner turmoil.

Just before midnight Venus, the planet of our personal values enters the cautious, mature sign of Capricorn where she will stay until December 7th. Over the coming days and weeks, we will learn the importance of patience. Delayed gratification and deep abiding patience support the true lasting value of our desires.

CANDLELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Saturday, November 12, 2016:

Saturday morning, we wake up with lovely Venus newly in mature Capricorn ready to teach us all about patience in love. There is no rushing true, lasting love. You must take your time, hold steady, and develop the integrity and bedrock of your own true values.

Mercury, the planet of intellect and thought process, has been developing deep connections and intensity since entering Scorpio on October 24th.  At 9:39 AM EST, Mercury leaves Scorpio behind to enter Sagittarius where your philosophical understanding of your place in the world is ready to grow in wisdom. Consider the centaur (half human and half horse) that is the symbol of Sagittarius. Visualize that the centaur is releasing the arrow high in the air. The perspective of Sagittarius is not the perspective of the centaur. The perspective of Sagittarius is the perspective of the arrow at its highest altitude.

Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 2nd. Take advantage of this time to allow your mind to grow in awareness, inclusion, and understanding. Share your understanding with others while allowing each person to draw their own conclusions and develop their own opinions. We are all so different in our view of the world. Diversity is what makes it all work. Love the differences.

At 9:23 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus inviting us to seek sensual pleasures and beauty. Spend the evening with a lover or an art project. The night is made to create beauty, comfort, and earthly reverence. Candlelight and tasty treats are in order.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:45 AM EST until she enters Taurus at 9:23 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

EMBRACE BEAUTY & LOVE

Sunday, November 13, 2016:

Sunday is a simple, and possibly, sleepy day made for pleasure. There may be little reason to get out of bed other than possibly to create wonderful food to further deepen the pleasure of the day.

With much stress now left behind, you may really need this day of rest. Create a nest to luxuriate in, binge watch a TV series, or watch a few lovely movies. The other choice for the day would be to spend time in nature connecting with the reality and solidity of the natural world. Get out and soak in the dependability of the land; commune with the trees or the ocean. Allow nature to move your soul.

At 9:46 PM EST, the Moon trine Pluto offers you the opportunity to absorb the power in nature and the power of love. We are closing in on the Taurus Full Moon on Monday, a time of full illumination of the connection to stability and reverence that Taurus offers. Embrace Love.

Hello, Dear Readers!

Before getting on to the daily posts, I am leaving you with a few random quotes that have spoke to me over the past few days.

But first:

Are you up against a difficult decision, or are you questioning your current life, love, or career direction? An astrological consultation with an open hearted, competent astrologer will clearly show you the larger picture at play, the universal directional path.

I am taking new clients again and would love to meet with you. Contact me today.

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Keebler-Ross

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” ~ Jack Kerouac

ENJOY ‘CREEPY’ PLAY – HALLOWEEN

Monday, October 31, 2016:

Halloween falls on a day perfect for the holiday. The sensitive Moon is in mysterious Scorpio enabling us to look into the face of all that is anticipated for this traditionally ‘creepy’ holiday.

At the same time, it is a calm day astrologically; you won’t need to worry about the intensity of ‘creepy play’ spilling into real world fears or compulsions. The Moon makes charming aspects to both Pluto (representing the underworld) and Mars (representing strength and courage) enabling you to play with these energies while learning about yourself through the reality of what is being expressed.  Go ahead and play; enjoy the expression of all that calls to you from the other side of the veil.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:44 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius on Tuesday at 10:44 AM EDT.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

DREAMS AND EXPLORATIONS

Tuesday, November 1, 2016:

You may wake up on Tuesday morning with a deep desire to stay in your warm space of sleep and dreams. Of course, most of you will need to get up and start the day but there is nothing to stop you from bringing your dreams with you.

At 4:16 AM EDT, the vital Sun trines transcendent Neptune encouraging you to continue feeding the dream that began last February. It should be easy to simply roll with the sense that things are not as they appear to be. Do you feel overly sensitive, perhaps even confused or dreamy?

If there was a dream or a powerful impression that began last February, bring your awareness to how you can now utilize what that dream brought into your life. What do you bring to the table now because of how that dream has changed you and your path forward?

Allow yourself to enjoy a sense of groundlessness, a diffuse dreamy state on Tuesday. Trust where you find yourself; allow intuition to guide your steps. Show others what you have learned by trusting your intuition and inspirations.

When the gentle Moon enters philosophical Sagittarius at 10:44 AM EDT, you can expect an increase in physical energy and in your desire for exploration. When the Moon is in Sagittarius, it is always a good time to plan a trip or explore differences of culture and lifestyle. On a Tuesday night, you probably won’t be taking the next jet out of the country to explore the world, but you can sit at home and enjoy a great documentary that may help you understand how others live, love, and experience the full range of their lives.

Tuesday begins with the Scorpio Moon VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Sagittarius at 10:44 AM EDT.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

SHIFT GEARS

Wednesday, November 2, 2016:

Enjoy the delightful, optimistic Sagittarius Moon for one more day. Wednesday begins with a sextile from the receptive Moon to expansive Jupiter at 9:59 AM EDT.  You may find yourself longing for life to present you with experiences that will enrich and enlarge your life and your mind.  You may feel that life is bigger than you thought. Everything feels larger than life. Hold onto that sense of excitement and freedom for as long as you can.

Say YES to anyone who offers opportunities for emotional expansion and excitement.

When the Moon conjoins Saturn at 4:10 PM EDT, you will likely be brought back to reality regardless of your desires or best intentions.  Go ahead and shift gears. Allow yourself to set the excitement aside to look into the eyes of reality.

While you sleep on Wednesday night (during in the wee hours of Thursday morning), Mercury sextile Pluto. Before you go to bed on Wednesday night, make sure you have pen and paper by your bed to record your dreams. You may have intense dreams of successfully releasing ways of thinking that you have been stuck with for many years.  Pay attention and release.

 

EXPRESS POWERFUL IDEAS

Thursday, November 3, 2016:

At the breakfast table on Thursday morning, be sure to get everyone involved in talking about your dreams from Wednesday night.

At 1:09 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Pluto bringing powerful ideas and thoughts to mind. Since you were probably asleep at that time, those ideas probably expressed themselves in your dreams. This aspect will remain active throughout the day offering you the opportunity to speak about some important issue that you have been hesitant to talk about.

This is the day to speak about, write about, or somehow communicate a significant truth. There is an excellent chance that your fears around this communication will simply disappear as soon as you say what needs to be said.

With the Moon VOC* all day, there is little chance that much will come of this communication. Nevertheless, it will smooth the path, and release fear, for the changes ahead, as your mind grows in understanding.

At 11:05 PM EDT, the Moon will leave behind the lightness of Sagittarius and move into rigid, serious Capricorn. You can look forward to a productive day on Friday.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:36 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 11:05 PM EDT.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT & EFFORT

Friday, November 4, 2016:

Friday is a day to express ambition and make sure your integrity level is up to par. Move into the day with a clear idea of what you can realistically accomplish while holding true to your highest ideals. This is a serious day but one with few complications (until evening when you begin to feel the Venus trine Uranus, which will be exact early Saturday morning).

Keep your nose to the grindstone and your feet planted firmly on the ground. Focus on the completion of any prior commitments or move forward with projects of an organizational nature.

As you head into the evening, the energy shifts and you will feel the excitement or anxiety that is calling from the outside world. There may be more surprises.

The U.S. elections have shown and continue to show us, so much that is deeply disturbing and powerfully unnerving.  It is clear how much we have to gain and lose in the days ahead. This is the time to make sure you are talking amongst yourselves.

Make sure your friends and  loved ones are going to vote next week. The future is in your hands.  This is the weekend to volunteer at the phone banks for your political choices. Don’t neglect your responsibility to push us all forward to a better tomorrow.

SENSITIVITY AND EXCITEMENT

Saturday, November 5, 2016:

As Saturday begins, remember to pay attention, not only to the intensity of the outer world, but also to the development of your closest partnerships and love relationships. Finding a balance between the outer world and the inner world is crucial at this time. Neither one can be neglected.

You may get unexpected or unusual information about a loved one or see a side of a situation you were not anticipating. Refined harmonious Venus trine revolutionary unconventional Uranus at 2:23 AM EDT, this transit will stay with us throughout the day. This may be experienced as exciting, something you can see in a positive light for the greater good.

However, at 5:26 AM EDT the highly sensitive Moon joins with powerful Pluto beginning the day with deeply intense emotion. You may feel highly capable, even powerful, as you work to manage this depth of emotion.

At 5:48 PM EDT, the reactionary Moon squares defiant Uranus bringing an element of friction to the evening. Your desire to maintain stability through routine and limiting structures is brought into question. Allow yourself to break the out of control and cynicism on Saturday.  Add the unusual to the evening. Do something unexpected to bring your true authentic self forward.

 

MAINTAIN EQUILIBRIUM

Sunday, November 6, 2016:

On Sunday morning, we enter Daylight Savings Time in the U.S.; as we move forward this will be reflected in Astrolore’s posts. If you live in another time zone, please adjust accordingly.

Here in the USA, everything is so ramped up in the current presidential elections. It is challenging to maintain our equilibrium. However, Sunday is a day to do your best to simply sit with exactly where you find yourself. You are very likely surrounding yourselves with folks who believe much as you do about the candidates and the outcomes. Otherwise your stress level would be over the Moon! 😉

With the emotional Moon entering Aquarius at 8:56 AM EST, this is a day to spend with like-minded friends. I would tell you to rest from all of the anxiety swimming around this issue but we all know that is not possible. Let’s hope we can get back to normal over the next few weeks. For now, hold steady in the company of those who have your back.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:57 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 8:56 AM 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.

Sending light & love, Laurie

Hello my dear readers,

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

Sending love and light,

Laurie

 

An Autumn Idyll by Francis Davis Millet via Wiki Commons

An Autumn Idyll by Francis Davis Millet via Wiki Commons

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

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

CHALLENGE YOUR ASSUMPTIONS

Monday, October 10, 2016:

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

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

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

The Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:51 PM EDT on Sunday until she enters unusual Aquarius at 2:33 AM EDT Monday morning.  Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad; it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

PATH OF FORGIVENESS

Tuesday, October 11, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

The revolutionary Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:49 PM EDT until she enters poetic Pisces at 8:42 AM EDT Wednesday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad; it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

MEETING THE DIVINE

Wednesday, October 12, 2016:

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

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

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

The quirky Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:49 PM EDT Tuesday until she enters sensitive Pisces at 8:42 AM EDT on Wednesday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad; it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

KEEP EMPATHY CLOSE AT HAND

Thursday, October 13, 2016:

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

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

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

 

SPEAK UP

Friday, October 14, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad; it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

DIGNITY AND COURAGE

Saturday, October 15, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

 

ARIES FULL MOON – COMPROMISE WITH COURAGE

Sunday, October 16, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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