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

BEGIN THE PLAN

Monday, October 16, 2017:

This week begins on a much easier note than last week; thank goodness!

The Moon is in precise, efficient Virgo providing the ability for you to pay careful attention to the details, buckle down, and accomplish what needs to be done.

At 7:13 AM EDT, as you begin the day, the diplomatic Libra Sun forms a charming sextile aspect to hard-working Saturn. This is a good time to explore how you want to work with a new cycle of stabilization that will begin in late December when the Sun and Saturn conjunct at zero degrees Capricorn. Look at where zero degrees Capricorn falls in your chart; the house placement will tell you what area of life requires a major, meaningful new beginning.

Explore new ideas, get serious about this; begin to gather your thoughts about a very important, new endeavor to start in late December. As Saturn leaves Sagittarius behind to enter Capricorn, we will all begin to be engaged on more serious projects. Begin your preparation for that now.

 

 

THE MIND DEEPENS

Tuesday, October 17, 2017:

When you wake up on Tuesday morning, you may notice the quality of your mind has shifted to a very different state. While you slept, Mercury left Libra behind to enter Scorpio. While in Libra, your thinking and conversations have been focused on making things look good and maintaining, at least, the image of refinement and charm. Remember that Mercury represents the way you think, what you think about, and how you communicate and share information.

At 3:58 AM EDT, Mercury entered the still, deep, dark waters of Scorpio. While Mercury is in Scorpio (until November 5th), observe your mind as it becomes determined to search out what is hidden and goes deeply into private and introspective considerations.

Those who have undisclosed secrets can find themselves in a rough spot as those hidden issues may be revealed at this time.

At 1:34 PM EDT, the Moon enters lovely, polite Libra. Perhaps, you are not quite ready to go into those deep Scorpionic places yet or to bring them into the conversation. For the time being, you can allow your mind to go deep even as your heart remains discreet… there will be time to open to the full extent of what is revealed when the Moon enters Scorpio on Thursday night.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:27 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 1:34 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.

 

 

SHARE DEEP THOUGHTS

Wednesday, October 18, 2017:

Sandor Wearing Vest by Jozsef Rippl-Ronai via Wiki Media

With Mercury now in Scorpio, you are generally more likely to keep your own counsel, you may not be quick to share what may seem too dark or vulnerable. However, on Wednesday, mental Mercury joins with expansive Jupiter in the early morning hours. You can’t help but bring those deeply intense ideas out into the open. You long to share your deepest concerns, vulnerabilities, even your fears.

By sharing these deep issues with others, you are able to understand yourself more thoroughly. Pay close attention to who you chose to share yourself with and be willing to be a sounding board for others as they unload their deep concerns as well.

When the diplomatic Libra Moon forms a challenging square aspect to deeply intense Pluto at 9:03 PM EDT, you may question the wisdom of all that you have shared. Don’t worry, trust it, and go deep.

Darkness is easy to locate as we are in the Dark of the Moon, moving to the New Moon on Thursday.

 

 

LIBRA NEW MOON – SEEKING HARMONY AND GRACE

Thursday, October 19, 2017:

Even with the Moon in peaceful Libra, you may feel anxiety or excitement as the Sun challenges the unusual with the Sun opposing Uranus early on Thursday afternoon. The cycle between the Sun and Uranus is a cycle of personal freedom, originality, and detachment from conventional ideas and patterns that holds you back. The cycle between them began in mid-April of 2017. What excitement began at that time? How far have you come in moving forward on this path?

At this point, you can see and acknowledge your progress and you are able to determine how best to bring this issue forward into your life more fully in the coming months.

At 3:13 PM EDT, we reached the New Moon at 26° Libra. At this New Moon, you will want to plant a seed that will develop into love, grace, and harmony; over the coming weeks build on this theme. Create beauty in your life; bring love to others; set selfishness aside.

At 9:41 PM EDT, the Moon enters deep, transformative Scorpio. .When you fall asleep on Thursday night, look for dreams of the Phoenix, transformed, coming from the ash.

Thursday is a powerful day. Use it well.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:13 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 9:41 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

VERBALIZE YOUR SHADOW

Friday, October 20, 2017:

As the Moon begins her trek through mysterious Scorpio, she immediately bumps into expansive Jupiter and shortly thereafter joins with Mercury, the planet of communication and thought processes. This suggests that issues of intensity and depth may require verbal expression in ways that you may not even anticipate. The results of your words may have a larger impact than you expect. This will be a great morning for writing; write down your deepest secrets, your most intense inner shadow issues; allow healing to come through words expressed.

Most of the day is relatively quiet although you can expect to have a high degree of awareness regarding the shocking depth of transformation of what so many in the world are currently processing in their own lives. Spend time in deep inner work.

Do you know the practice of tonglen? Tonglen is a practice for soothing others and cultivating love and compassion. It is a gentle process of opening the heart by embracing, rather than rejecting, the unwanted and painful aspects of experience, we can help ourselves and others to overcome fear and develop greater empathy. Instruction here.

At 8:15 PM EDT, the Moon engages in a flowing trine aspect to dreamy Neptune, allow yourself to drift into an early sleep deeply connected to dream, fantasy, and inspiration.

RELEASE THE STORY

Saturday, October 21, 2017:

You can expect Saturday to be a relatively quiet day but one of great emotional depth and intensity. Early in the morning, the Scorpio Moon forms a sextile aspect to powerful Pluto, offering the opportunity to dig deeply into very private issues of power and control. You will want to get to the bottom of whatever issues present themselves and are willing to get your own hands dirty in the process. Truth and honesty are important to you but if you experience jealousy or obsessiveness, consider that you may be embroiled in some unwarranted paranoia as well.

If you have the sense that something untoward is unfolding, allow it to happen. Release the story that you feel wrapped up in and focus on the underlying issues of power and control. Let go of your attachment to having things as you expect or want them to be.

The Scorpio Moon reminds us each month of the importance of going deep, relaxing your hold, and releasing control in order for a more positive outcome than you may imagine.

 

 

THE COURAGE OF DIPLOMACY

Sunday, October 22, 2017:

The depth and intensity of the past few days, courtesy of the intense Scorpio Moon, can be set aside as the Moon enters optimistic Sagittarius at 7:57 AM EDT. With the Moon in freedom-loving Sagittarius, your emotional attention turns to travel, big ideas, and a higher understanding of the world and your place in it.

At 2:28 PM EDT, Mars, having been in orderly Virgo since September 5th, enters romantic, charming Libra. Mars represents the manner in which we take action, the way that we push ourselves forward with courage and purpose. While Mars was in Virgo, you may have noticed that you spent a lot of your attention busily looking at the details and attempting to perfect all your projects and physical activities.

Now, as Mars finds his way into diplomatic Libra, your thoughts and actions turn toward cooperation and balanced social interactions. Mars would prefer to be in aggressive Aries where he can simply take what he wants directly and assertively; however, while he moves through Libra until December 9th, he will teach us the importance, and even the courage it takes, to negotiate and allow human relationships to determine the direction forward.

Remember what your mother told you… ‘You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar’. 🙂

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:36 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 7:57 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.

“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…”

ELATION AND BEAUTY

Monday, September 18, 2017:

How did you sleep last night? Shortly after midnight, Venus formed a lovely, flowing trine aspect to Uranus, the planet of unexpected change, excitement, and (sometimes) anxiety.

In early June, the cycle began between Venus and Uranus. When these two planets come together, it is a time to begin something new around love, deep personal values, beauty, money, or resources. Whatever you began in early June related to those qualities, probably brought a challenge in late August. What action did you take at that time to develop those values?

Now, the gifts of your choices are clear and are paying valuable dividends. Full illumination of this cycle comes in early November. This is a lovely aspect; enjoy the excitement and a view of beauty and loveliness to come.

Also, while you slept, the Moon entered Virgo, where she will remain until Wednesday morning. While the Moon is in Virgo, you will be able to do detailed work with competent efficiency.

On Monday afternoon, the Moon makes contact with both Mars and Mercury bringing you courage, strength, and purposeful direction. You can get important work accomplished at this time.

As the Moon opposes Neptune at 10:47 PM EDT, you are able to sleep with the awareness of your connection to the universe and enjoy the beautiful space of dreamland.

 

INWARD ATTENTION

Tuesday, September 19, 2017:

Keep in mind on Tuesday that we are in the dark phase of the Moon, this is a quiet time of inward attention. We will reach the Virgo New Moon at 1:30 AM EDT on Wednesday. Don’t rush your New Moon ritual, you will want to do that on Wednesday or even Thursday. I will post more details in the days ahead.

Tuesday, the Moon continues through productive, orderly Virgo keeping you focused on the details of the work you are engaged in.

Mid-afternoon, you may experience a slump as the Moon forms a challenging square aspect to restrictive Saturn at 3:11 PM EDT. It will soon pass.

At 9:15 PM EDT, Venus who has enjoyed her time in playful, expressive Leo since mid-June, now joins with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in modest, unassuming Virgo.

The Sun only has a few more days in Virgo, so take advantage of these few days to work out detailed plans and systems that will support your path forward. Carefully consider the seeds you want to plant at the upcoming Virgo New Moon.

 

SELF-CARE & KINDNESS

Girl in Red with Flowers by Jozsef Rippl-Ronai via Wiki Media

Wednesday, September 20, 2017:

The New Moon at 27 degrees Virgo occurred at 1:30 AM EDT, beginning a New Lunar Cycle, the first since the big Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

Be aware that the purpose of critical or compulsive thinking at this time reflects the need to release something you have recently become attached to.

This is the time to take a new step toward kindness and service. Yes, you may notice a desire to clear space in your closets and cupboards but remember that the space that truly needs to be cleared out is the space in your mind and heart that is too full or cluttered. When you have cleared that space, you can fill it with a new focus to support the growth of yourself and others in self-care. The world is glutted with much stress that is heavy for each of us to carry.

Plant a seed of commitment; commit to building a platform of kindness and support for others and self-care for yourself. Ask yourself: how can you help your neighbors and friends?

At 6:06 AM EDT, the Moon enters cooperative, diplomatic Libra. You find it easier to connect to others and truly see the unique contribution they have to offer the world.  Make it a point to build each other up on Wednesday.

The Virgo Moon was VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) while you slept. She enters Libra at 6:06 AM EDT.

 

MAKE THINGS NICE

Thursday, September 21, 2017:

Whatever sign the Moon is in on any given day sets the emotional tone for that day. With the Moon in diplomatic Libra on Thursday, we can anticipate a desire to ‘make things nice’ for all involved. However, the afternoon brings a difficult square aspect from the Moon to destructive Pluto (exact at 1:00 PM EDT).

Meditate, go for a long walk, and consider the options you have regarding any relationship issues you are working through.

Other than that brief glitch, this is a day where you will want to engage in social interactions. It is easier than usual to see the world from another’s perspective. Join with a trusted partner in environments that are aesthetically pleasing, bounce ideas off each other, enjoy art and cultural surroundings. Show kindness in everything you do and bring a smile and a good word to everyone you meet.

 

SUN ENTERS LIBRA – REFINEMENT AND BEAUTY

Friday, September 22, 2017:

Friday begins with the Moon still in graceful, charming Libra. At 9:05 AM EDT, she opposes Uranus, you can expect a surprise, excitement, or anxiety to shift the energy of the morning.

At 1:39 PM EDT, the Moon enters deeply passionate Scorpio, bringing intensity and deep introspection to the next few days.

At 2:01 PM EDT, mental Mercury forms a lovely, powerful trine aspect to Pluto. This allows your words to hit their mark. Go ahead and ask what needs to be asked and say what needs to be said. If you are a writer, allow compelling words to flow easily and weave their magic throughout this day.

At 4:01 PM EDT, the Sun shifts from Virgo into Libra, changing the focus of attention from service and perfection to social charm, harmony, and diplomatic endeavors. Over the coming month, you will want to deepen your romantic connections and create beauty and pleasure in your environment. On Friday evening, bring home flowers, arrange them beautifully and prepare to encourage the growth of all beauty in your life.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:05 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 1:39 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.

DEEPLY INTENSE CONNECTIONS 

Saturday, September 23, 2017:

Saturday is about adjusting to the change in the Sun sign. With the Sun now in Libra, you may notice that it is more of a challenge than normal to take your own needs into consideration. The needs of others seems more important as you are able to see the world from the perspective of others. Libra connects us deeply; it is a good time to remember that your relationships provide you with a powerful mirror; your intimate partners and close friends are powerful teachers showing you where you need further personal work.

The focus now is on balance, on finding how to develop internal harmony through love or the creation of beauty and art. It may be more difficult to make clear choices during this time as you see both sides to every issue and situation. You are conscious of wanting to be loved and not wanting to rock the boat. Use this month to develop something of beauty and to creating balance in all your partnerships.

With the Moon in Scorpio throughout the weekend, there’s a depth of intensity in all your connections. You will want to relate closely, even compulsively with others. Making love this weekend will touch you on a powerful soul level. Connect with depth and intensity; open your heart.

 

REST, CONTEMPLATE, MEDITATE

Sunday, September 24, 2017:

It is important to know that the Moon is VOC* all day on Sunday. VOC* (Void of Course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect the Moon makes in one sign until it enters the next sign. This is a neutral time when whatever occurs will have little or no impact on the future of the issue involved. Therefore, this is a good time to rest, contemplate, and recuperate from your busy life. These are bad times to make purchases, you will not use the item as you may expect. These times can also be used to do things that you are hoping will have little impact. For instance, if you have a tough communication that you know you need to deliver but are hoping for minimal reaction… tell them today or at another VOC* Moon. Always file your taxes during VOC* in preparation to NOT be audited. 😉  Because the Moon changes sign every 2+ days, we have these periods very regularly, they can last anywhere from a few minutes to a full 24+ hours.

At 3:49 PM EDT, Mars forms a stressful opposition to Neptune, asking that you look clearly at your internal insecurities and worries. Be aware of your level of integrity and pay attention to any intuitive red flags that may arise regarding other people or situations that you encounter. Meditation is called for… and of course… kindness.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:33 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius just after midnight. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

AN ORIGINAL VIEW

Monday, July 24, 2017:

A very interesting Monday follows on the heels of Sunday’s powerful Leo New Moon. Go back and check Sunday’s post for suggestions on performing a New Moon ritual. You still have time to do the ritual anytime on Monday.

Along with the brand new, expressive Leo Moon, Monday offers two significant transits. At 10:53 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, goes head-to-head with Saturn, the planet of responsibility, maturity, and limitations. The end of October of 2016 began this Venus and Saturn cycle of stabilizing personal values that now comes to full illumination.

Pay attention to how you form structures and boundaries in your love relationships and your management of money and resources. This may not be easy. If there is a struggle, you know it is time to shift your perspective. If you are not acting with integrity and are not based in reality, this will be a wakeup call that maybe likely unpleasant.

However, it may be easy to let that difficulty go under the radar if the other transit of the day impacts your chart more strongly.

At 12:32 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our thinking and communicating mind, forms a lovely trine aspect to eccentric Uranus. This is a simple and powerful demand. Wake up!

Expect unexpected news, communications, or epiphanies that are tied in to the relationship resources focus of the Saturn transit. These two transits will work together.  You may feel great anxiety or great excitement. Keep your ears and eyes open and be ready to experience a highly original view.

 

 

ANALYTICAL PRECISION TAKES A STAND

Tuesday, July 25, 2017:

By the time you are up and moving on Tuesday, the Moon has entered industrious, orderly Virgo. As long as you have work to do or a project at hand, it will be a productive and efficient day from the start.

As we are adjusting to Mars and the Sun being in creative, expressive Leo, Mercury leaves Leo behind to enter into modest Virgo. Mercury is very much at home in Virgo and happy to leave the heat of Leo for the cool calm of this Mutable Earth sign.

In Virgo, Mercury reminds us that the Sun is never very far from Mercury and will not remain in the dramatic sign of Leo for too long. Summertime certainly passes quickly and the Sun will follow into Virgo in less than four weeks. It is important to enjoy the heat, vitality, and great, playful energies while they are available.

Mercury, the planet of our thinking and communications, leaves drama behind in Leo and becomes more practical and concerned with others in Virgo. Mercury will remain in this analytical sign until he enters Libra at the end of September. Take advantage of this time to get precise, efficient work done. This is perfect for getting the nitpicky, detailed paperwork done that you have not wanted to complete.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for a very brief period of time from 5:22 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 6:33 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.

 

 

VITALITY AND STRENGTH

Wednesday, July 26, 2017:

Campanil Ascendiendo by Eugenio Cruz Vargas via Wiki Commons

Wednesday is a powerful day! The day begins with a razor sharp ability to use our power in an efficient manner as the Moon forms a beautiful trine aspect to powerful Pluto at 1:27 PM EDT.

At 8:50 PM EDT, when the Moon forms of challenging square to Saturn, we may wonder if we pushed too hard and may have the tendency to be overly critical.

However, the real action builds throughout the day to its climax at 8:56 PM EDT with a conjunction from the all-powerful Sun to assertive Mars. This is the beginning of a one-year cycle of illumination of strength, self-determination, and physical energy. You can think of this as similar to a New Moon, involving the Sun and Mars rather than the Sun and Moon. Think of it as the time to plant a seed of personal strength and perseverance toward a long-held goal.

Because the Sun and Mars are in Leo, you will want to incorporate self-expression or leadership as a part of this goal. If you have personal planets (your Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars) or your Ascendant or Mid-Heaven between 2° and 6° of any fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius), you will probably feel a great abundance of internal or physical energy. Find a way to use it with kindness.

If you notice yourself feeling frustration or anger, go out for a run or move direct physical energy through your body in some powerful manner. Sexual expression is a great use of this vital strength. Learning to manage your inner warrior or goddess without selfishness is essential at this time.

 

 

SOOTHE THOSE RUFFLED FEATHERS

Thursday, July 27, 2017:

The early morning hours may feel a bit unsettled on Thursday. Take it in stride without question. At 11:36 AM EDT, the Moon enters graceful Libra and directs our attention to diplomatic cooperation and social decorum. We feel more tolerant of others and more interested in presenting ourselves in a more amicable, sympathetic light.

Late Thursday evening, the gentle, cordial Libra Moon forms soothing sextile aspects to both the Leo Sun and Mars and encourages the smoothing of any ruffled feathers that may have occurred on Wednesday. Allow yourself to be soothed, calmed, and softened. There is no reason to carry a grudge and it would be difficult to do so under this influence.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:31 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 11:36 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.

 

 

GO BENEATH THE SURFACE

Friday, July 28, 2017:

The Moon continues through harmonious, thoughtful Libra throughout the day on Friday. Your attention is on creating beauty, balance, and cooperation. This will work out well for most of the day.

However, at 6:35 PM EDT, the Libra Moon joins with idealistic Jupiter. With this transit, you may be so busy trying to make things look good on the outside that you hardly notice what is going on beneath the surface.

Take the time to look beneath the carpet and to honestly see what is hidden below. Is your life as you present it? Or are you, like so many, trying to make everything look pretty in the eyes of other people? Think about how easy it is to make your life look beautiful without acknowledging the everyday ups and downs.

At 8:38 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a challenging square to Pluto, get real with yourself and show your deepest vulnerabilities to those you love. Don’t plaster those vulnerabilities all over Facebook but do get real with yourself and those who need to truly know you. <3

ENDING ON A NOTE OF DEEP CONNECTION

Saturday, July 29, 2017:

All in all, you can expect a pleasant day on Saturday as the Moon continues through social, romantic Libra. The Libra Moon is encouraging you to create beauty and express love and appreciation in all your close friendships and intimate partnerships.

At 4:25 PM EDT, the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to Venus encouraging feelings and expressions of love, abundance, and gratitude.

However, an hour later, you may need to take a break and spend some time alone. At 5:30 PM EDT, the graceful Moon forms a difficult opposition to unsettling Uranus. Pay attention to how you express yourself and the words that you use. Give a lot of slack to what others may say or how they say it.

You may say something you didn’t mean to say and upset the equilibrium of the day or maybe someone says something to you with the same effect. Apologize or accept the other person’s apology and move on. Don’t get stuck in anger or get your back up against the wall. Remember, this is a Moon transit and will pass quickly if you don’t engage with it.

At 8:23 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio asking that our relationships go to a deeper, more intense, profound, and emotional level. This is an excellent night to go very deep with a highly trusted loved one, express your vulnerabilities, and hold your heart open to those that are closest to you.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:30 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 8:23 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.

 

 

A SPARK OF CURIOSITY AND A SERIOUS DECISION

Sunday, July 30, 2017:

Sunday begins with a delightful sextile aspect from relationship-oriented Venus to unconventional Uranus. When Venus and Uranus began their cycle at the very beginning of June, their cycle’s purpose was to learn how to incorporate individuality and bring your own unique stamp to intimate relationships and resources. At the sextile aspect on Sunday, pay attention to ideas and conversations that spark curiosity and highlight possibilities in this direction.

Midmorning will bring a challenging square aspect from the introspective Scorpio Moon to the expressive Leo Sun and Mars. Something feels uncomfortable and you need to take an action or make a decision that will direct your path forward.

Take your time in the considerations and make these decisions consciously and carefully. Consider the seed you planted at the New Moon on July 23rd; do what must be done now to assist in the healthy growth of that aspiration.

The day ends on a sensitive note as the Moon forms a sweet, romantic trine aspect to dreamy Neptune at 11:30 PM EDT. Sleep uninterrupted and travel in your dreams.

__________________________________________________________

Watch your mental (Mercury) and physical (Mars) energies this week!

A Jest by Thomas Cooper Gotch via SightsWithin

Mercury, an inner planet responsible for our communication, thinking, perception, and understanding, forms highly challenging aspects to multiple planets. These transits may be intended to shift your attention. These Mercury aspects may bring you a new understanding of how you currently use your voice and how you may want or need to change your manner of communication. They may even ask you to change what you are thinking about!

Mars, an inner planet that facilitates our direct physical energy, assertiveness, and anger, is also active this week. On Monday, your ability to assert yourself with courage helps a dream move forward toward reality. On Sunday, it will be prudent to be aware of the tendency toward an expression of anger that is best avoided. Please pay attention to your own internal triggers and keep out of the range of your own anger.

DREAMS DO COME TRUE

Monday, June 26, 2017:

The combination of active planetary cycles on Monday allow for a lovely day of creativity and imagination. Mars, the planet of action, forms a supportive trine aspect to Neptune, the planet of dreams and inspiration, while we sleep early on Monday morning. This will remain with us throughout the day.

The cycle between Mars and Neptune began on the first day of January, 2017. This is a cycle of bringing strength and determination to your dreams. Look back at any resolutions you made at the New Year! You may be surprised to see that your dream is alive and moving in exactly the right direction. J

With the Moon in playful, expressive Leo and forming a lovely sextile aspect to expansive Jupiter at 4:43 PM EDT, you may want to shout your good news from the rooftops. Go ahead and do that!

 

 

SHIFTING BELIEFS & UNDERSTANDING

Tuesday, June 27, 2017:

Tuesday will bring us to an active, playful, and highly interesting day.

With the Moon in dramatic, expressive Leo, your energy is stabilized by a trine aspect to dutiful Saturn at 9:38 AM EDT.

Gaining clarity on your responsibilities is helpful when thoughtful Mercury forms a challenging square to idealistic Jupiter (at 2:20 PM EDT) asking you to question certain fundamental beliefs you hold regarding intimacy and relationship.

At 5:11 PM EDT, your eyes may open to a new perspective that could completely shift your understanding.

Later, as logical Mercury forms a supportive trine aspect to mystical Neptune at 8:22 PM EDT, your mind is encouraged to embrace a new understanding of a long anticipated dream. Indeed, please remember that dreams do come true.

At 8:42 PM EDT, with the Moon entering meticulous Virgo, you will want to get a good night’s sleep to face a more practical, industrious day on Wednesday.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:11 PM EDT until she enters Virgo at 8:42 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.

SPEAK WITH CONSCIOUS INTENT

Wednesday, June 28, 2017:

The analytical Virgo Moon forms a delightful sextile aspect to the intuitive Cancer Sun at 9:04 AM EDT. This makes us feel inspiring, gracious, and sweet. This is a great start to the day.

However, Wednesday afternoon could bring difficult or demanding conversations as mental Mercury conjoins with aggressive Mars (at 15° Cancer) at 3:50 PM EDT. With your thinking and your need for direct, unapologetic action coming together in moody Cancer, it is important that you find a way to manage aggravation and frustration without it spilling over onto others and leaving a big mess to later clean up!

Your first choice should be to practice patience and kindness with yourself and others. There may well be important things that must be said. If you choose to speak out on Wednesday, pay attention to the words that you use and the manner of your delivery. Blurting out the truth as you see it will very likely come back to bite you.

Don’t expect it to be easy but make a solid effort to say what must be said with clear and conscious intent.

 

 

EXPLORING DARKNESS

Thursday, June 29, 2017:

Thursday’s dedicated, hard-working Virgo Moon forms a difficult square aspect to restrictive Saturn at 2:52 PM EDT. Are you working too hard? Are you or someone in authority holding you to a standard that feels beyond your ability?

With an opposition between communicative Mercury and power-hungry Pluto exact at 8:35 PM EDT, any resentment that formed early in the day could get ugly. Pay attention to power dynamics and do your best to sidestep manipulation, coercion, and other underhanded attempts at control.

Make sure your connections with others are of the highest integrity.

Spend the evening in deep study or intense conversation with trusted, respected equals. Much understanding can come from an exploration of darkness and hidden forces. Make sure your words are constructive and that your intention is to help each other understand issues of depth and significance.

If you began a study or an important conversation in late January, the results of the seed planted at that time will be clear now. Look for it.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:35 PM EDT until she enters Libra in the wee hours (3:03 AM EDT) of Friday 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.

 

 

SENSITIVITY AND CHARM

Friday, June 30, 2017:

When you wake up on Friday morning, the Moon will be in graceful Libra. You can anticipate spending the weekend seeking harmony, cooperation, and diplomacy in social situations and intimate relationships.

This brings us to a weekend of community engagement and romantic encounters. Don’t spend the weekend alone. Find friends for pleasurable activities or go to a nice restaurant, not the dive downtown or your ‘regular haunt’. Go somewhere with tablecloths and candles, or invite a few friends over and pull out your best china and create an environment of refinement and beauty.

Create a space of allure, charm, pleasure, and romance.

At 8:52 PM EDT, we come to the First Quarter Moon with the Sun in emotional Cancer and the Moon in graceful Libra. Love and pleasure must be combined with deep sensitivity and maternal tenderness. Can you embrace all this sweetness and charm?

DEEP HEALING

Saturday, July 1, 2017:

Chiron is a comet, which in astrology symbolizes deep wounds and the push to heal those wounds. At 3:09 AM EDT, Chiron turns retrograde opening a five-month window to work deeply with your healing process. Look to 28° or 29° Pisces in your natal chart for the house (area of your life) that is being activated.

If you have planets in the last degrees of mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces), you will be pushed particularly hard to work on your path of healing. If you have been avoiding working with deep long-standing wounds in your life, this is the time to meet them head on. This is a good time to finally work with an astrologer to see your situation from the amazing perspective of the greater universe (Yes, Astrolore is taking new clients; contact me today.)

The normally social and charming Libra Moon does not have an easy run of it on Saturday. Issues of anger, frustration, and power dynamics could get in the way as the Moon forms challenging square aspects to impulsive Mars, subversive Pluto, and perceptive Mercury.

Do your best on Saturday to maintain inner balance and equanimity. Work to show kindness to others and don’t forget to focus on your own self-care.

 

 

INERTIA BECOMES EMPOWERMENT

Sunday, July 2, 2017:

The Libra Moon is VOC* (void of course) until 1:00 PM EDT on Sunday afternoon.

Let’s take this opportunity to review what that means. When the Moon is Void of Course (VOC), she has made her final major aspect to another planet while in one sign. The Moon then makes no more major aspects to other planets before she leaves that sign to enter the next. It is a phenomenon of the transiting Moon.

A VOC Moon tends to leave us with a sense of inertia. It is prudent not to start anything that you have important expectations of during these times. It is best to focus on mundane activities, things that must be done but aren’t expected to have significant long-term impact.

With that in mind, keep a low profile on Sunday morning. Sleep late, read the paper, rest.

At 1:00 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio bringing intensity and depth to the rest of the day. You will want to connect with others but with none of the “wanting to make it look pretty” of Libra! Now, there is a powerful desire to delve deeply into profound emotions and to uncover what is hidden beneath the surface.

Avoid manipulation and allow for vulnerability. Extreme depth of connection is available; spend the day alone if that is not what you are looking for.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:17 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 1:00 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.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

LONGING FOR DEEP CONNECTION

Monday, June 5, 2017:

Between Sunday night and Monday morning, the general mood changes dramatically from congenial and cooperative to intense and deep as the Moon enters the dark waters of Scorpio at 6:46 AM EDT.

Following a flowing trine aspect from the Moon to decisive Mars (7:51 AM EDT), the day proceeds without a major event. This offers aspect brings the ability to push beyond emotion into action.

When the Moon is in Scorpio, we seek and long for connection and deep intimacy with others. The trick is to understand that in order to reach that level of communion, one must show vulnerability. This is never an easy task when mysterious and secretive Scorpio is at hand. Do your best; find the courage necessary to allow others to see your soft side.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:57 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 6:46 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

SHIFTING SANDS

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Tuesday is certainly a big day for shifting energies! Venus, the planet of love, money, and those things that we hold most dear, and Mercury, the planet of intellect, thoughts, and communication, both change sign. These inner personal planets are currently moving quickly and not remaining in any sign for long.

At 3:26 AM EDT, Venus leaves the aggressive sign of Aries behind (finally, after that long painful retrograde) to enter her favorite sign of sensual, beautiful Taurus. While Venus is in Taurus, you can slow down and simplify the complexities that sometimes overtake your life. This is a time to settle into love that brings comfort, indulge your senses, and create stability. Venus will remain in patient, earthy Taurus until July 4th.

At 6:15 PM EDT, perceptive Mercury leaves levelheaded Taurus behind to enter curious, restless Gemini. Mercury loves its time in Gemini, as he is easily able to gather and communicate the information he desires. Mercury will remain in Gemini until June 21st.

With these two personal planets in the signs they so strongly resonate with, you can expect that you will clarify your personal values and successfully communicate those values into your relationships.

The Moon continues through deeply passionate Scorpio. At 8:35 PM EDT, she makes her final aspect in Scorpio bringing us to a very long VOC* Moon that will last throughout most of Wednesday. Make Tuesday a productive day, as Wednesday will likely be far less so!

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:35 PM EDT until she entries Sagittarius on Wednesday at 7:00 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

A LONG DAY LEADS TO POSSIBLE ADVENTURE

Wednesday, June 7, 2017:

Astrologically speaking, Wednesday is a quiet day with very little activity. If you are able to take the day off for rest and recuperation, that would be ideal. If you do go to work on Wednesday, focus your attention on mundane activities and completing activities that are fully in process. This is not a day to take on significant communications or to begin new projects.

At 7:00 PM EDT, you can expect to get an energy boost as the Moon enters optimistic, freedom-seeking Sagittarius. Surprise your partner or a friend with an invitation to a restaurant that serves foreign cuisine, preferably some place you have never visited before. Enjoy an evening of new ideas, adventures, and encounters. Get excited about new places, people, and experiences.

Enjoy the delightful energies available.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:35 PM EDT on Tuesday until she enters Sagittarius at 7:00 PM 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 any significant future impact.

ENJOY THE ROSE COLORED GLASSES

Thursday, June 8, 2017:

I love to report on a day like Thursday! It is a quiet day with the normally domestic Moon joyfully passing through confident, expectant, optimistic Sagittarius. The Moon may want to be domestic but as she moves through Sagittarius, she is more apt to want to understand the domestic realities of people from other cultures or other worlds. This is a day to seek out adventures and to look ahead and plan more adventures.

Remember: all work and no play…

It’s not that you cannot get work done on Thursday. You certainly can. Whatever you put your attention on should move forward smoothly. Put the energy of enthusiasm into all that you do. Encourage and cheer on those you encounter. Open your mind to the way people unlike yourself live, love, and think.

Remember, we are all in this life together. We are not nearly as different from each other as we have been taught to believe.

At 9:42 PM EDT, when the Sagittarius Moon forms a lovely sextile aspect to philosophical Jupiter, enjoy those rose colored glasses. It may not last but for the time being it doesn’t get much better than this!

 

 

SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON – ENTHUSIASM & EXPLORATION

Friday, June 9, 2017:

The bright, buoyant enthusiasm of Thursday continues through Friday! We begin the day with a lovely Sagittarius Full Moon (at 18° Sagittarius) occurring at 9:10 AM EDT. Here we are, a Friday at the beginning of June; if the weather is beautiful you can expect people will be calling in sick! If you choose to go to work or not, this should be a positive day either way.

At 10:03 AM EDT, Jupiter, Sagittarius’ ruling planet, stations direct at 13° Libra. If you have planets between 11° – 15° of any cardinal sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn), pay particular attention to those places in your life where expansion has felt thwarted since Jupiter went retrograde on February 6, 2017. If you have learned the necessary lessons of cooperation and interdependence that Jupiter is teaching while in Libra, you are now ready to move forward in this area of your life.

At 11:40 AM EDT, lovely Venus forms a sextile aspects to assertive Mars encouraging you to take action on creativity, to actively seek love, and to soften and beautify how you approach your needs.

WEEKEND CHORES

Saturday, June 10, 2017:

This is probably not what you want to hear, but do prepare yourself for a practical weekend of chores, effort, and accomplishment. I’m sure you still have garden and other outdoor chores that need to be done; take the time now so you will be able to kick back a bit and enjoy the summer days ahead.

After the excitement of the Sagittarius Moon throughout Thursday and Friday, the Moon enters serious Capricorn at 7:37 AM EDT.

If you focus well and put your work ethic to the service of significant endeavors, you will be ready for a well-deserved break when the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to lovely Venus at 4:43 PM EDT. The evening may best be spent alone or in quiet activities with close family or loved ones.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:21 AM EDT until she entries Capricorn at 7:37 AM EDT.

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

 

 

SHARED RESPONSIBILITIES

Sunday, June 11, 2017:

With the highly disciplined Capricorn Moon squaring expansive Jupiter at 10:14 AM EDT, you may feel that a lot is expected of you on Sunday or perhaps you have high expectations of yourself. Make sure you are clear about what is realistically possible.

With Jupiter in relationship-driven Libra, having a partner or friend help shoulder the responsibilities that are calling for your attention will be a big help.

At 12:19 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a sextile aspect to Neptune, it will be a good idea to take a break from your responsibilities to spend time in nature, watch a film, or simply take time for daydreaming.

Head to bed early to get a jump on the coming week and to avoid the power struggles that could erupt when the serious Capricorn Moon opposes, sometimes coercive Pluto at 9:23 PM EDT.

Sweet dreams. Another week approaches.
