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

 

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

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

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

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

 

GOALS AND AMBITIONS

Monday, September 17, 2018:

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

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

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

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* until she enters Capricorn at 7:08 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

HECTIC INTENSIFICATION

Tuesday, September 18, 2018:

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

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

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

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

 

WELCOME OBJECTIVITY WEDNESDAY EVENING

Wednesday, September 19, 2018:

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

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

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

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

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* from 1:10 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 7:52 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

LISTEN TO DEVELOP UNDERSTANDING

Thursday, September 20, 2018:

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

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

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

 

COOPERATION BUILDS OVER THE COMING DAYS

Friday, September 21, 2018:

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

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

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

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

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

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* from 1:14 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 8:27 AM EDT on Saturday. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

SUN ENTERS LIBRA AT THE AUTUMNAL EQUINOX

Saturday, September 22, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* until she enters Pisces at 8:27 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

EFFORT – ACTION – REST

Sunday, September 23, 2018:

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

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

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

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 27, 2018 through September 2, 2018

August ends and September begins with astrological patterns that suggest easier days ahead.

Mercury has been direct for a week now and is up to full speed. Mars turns direct on Monday. This leaves only Saturn and the outer planets retrograde. This is a vast improvement that we will all feel in our ability to live our lives with more positive ease.

I hope you all got a great deal accomplished while Mercury was retrograde. There is always much to catch up on in terms of projects left incomplete. Always remember that during Mercury retrograde you can accomplish a great deal by focusing on those things that have been left undone. With Mercury now in full swing, it is time to begin new projects and consider new directions.

Also, Mars has been retrograde since June 26th. This has been a powerful time to consider and

revisit how we have used our assertiveness, aggressiveness, and sexuality. What have you discovered about yourself and how do you intend to improve the use of your precious directive life force? Monday, he goes direct and we can look ahead to understanding the new directions to push into.


ASSERTIVENESS, AGGRESSION, SEXUALITY

Monday, August 27, 2018:

The week begins with a lovely, soft dreamy Pisces Moon harmonizing throughout the day with elusive Neptune, expansive Jupiter, and empowered Pluto. You may wake with images and ideas that are not necessarily practical or even possible. That is just as it should be. This is a day to seek sensitive inspiration, allow yourself to open your heart to the suffering of others in order to develop true empathy and compassion.

At 10:05 AM EDT, Mars stations Direct. This is great news. Mars has been retrograde since June 26th.  How have you experienced your ability to be assertive during this time? Have you explored your own use of aggressive energies and your sexuality? What have you learned that will support the growth of your healthy ability to assert yourself and your blossoming sexuality? It is time to take a step forward here. (If you are dealing with issues of sexuality please read Emily Nargosi’s Come As You Are)

These past few months have been powerful in considering and revisiting how you have used your assertiveness, aggression, and sexuality. What have you discovered about yourself and how do you intend to improve the use of your precious directive life force?

As Mars now goes direct, look ahead to how you want to grow your relationship to assertiveness and your own sexual body. Mars will not be retrograde again until September 2020.

 

 

DEBATE PHILOSOPHICAL ISSUES

Tuesday, August 28, 2018:

On Tuesday, you will awake under the influence of a square aspect between Mercury and Jupiter. This suggests a day to use your voice or your intellect to work on legal, spiritual, or philosophical issues. This would be a great day to debate with intellectual equals about issues of significance or write a letter, report, or article.

At 12:36 PM EDT, the Moon enters impulsive Aries, bringing attention to your personal needs and desires. With the Moon in Aries, you may be tempted to do something you normally would shy away from. You may be impulsive and drawn to physical activities that require courage.

When the Moon is in Aries, it is time to take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, and prove something to yourself. This is not a day for empathy or romance but direct passionate exchange (again between equals) will be quite satisfying.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* from 9:55 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 12:36 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

YOUR OWN PRESSING NEEDS

Wednesday, August 29, 2018:

Wednesday comes with no major aspects at all, not even the Moon is talking directly with the other planets. This is unusual but only suggests a day without much activity. The general mood of each day is reflected by the sign and the transits of the Moon, without any transits we have only the Sign of the Moon to consider.

The Moon spends the day in assertive, action-oriented Aries making sure your focus is clearly on your own most pressing needs and desires. When the Moon is in Aries, we tend to see the world through the eyes of an infant who has no awareness of others. This is a day when we are likely to be quite selfish if we do not attempt to mitigate that tendency. Don’t take it personally when others behave selfishly as well.

It is a challenge to consider others right now. Do your best.

 

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead or even your next best steps? Let Astrolore help you see your life from a new perspective.

Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current reality, and your life purpose.

Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed view of your life and circumstances. Make your appointment today!  =

 

TIME ALONE – TIME TOGETHER 

Thursday, August 30, 2018:

The Moon continues her travels through Aries on Thursday but now is chatting with the other planets.

At 6:57 AM EDT, with an opposition to Venus, you may find yourself working on issues of cooperation and adaptability with your partner over the breakfast table. This may not be easy but you both want it to go in the right direction. Give each other the benefit of the doubt, remind yourself that you are playing for the same team. However, it may be more challenging to remember this when the Moon forms a challenging square to Mars (the planet most closely aligned with Aries) at 7:04 PM EDT.

This does not bode well for friendly interpersonal relationship dynamics. I would recommend that you each agree to go your own way for a few hours on Thursday evening. Go for a run or engage in an activity that your friends and partner are not particularly fond of. When the Moon enters Taurus at 9:31 PM EDT reconnect for a loving massage or a night of sensual pleasures.

The Aries Moon is VOC* from 7:04 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 9:31 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

PLEASURES OF THE BODY

Friday, August 31, 2018:

The general mood of each day is reflected by the sign and the transits of the Moon.

With the Moon now in stable Taurus for the next few days, your heart settles down seeking comfort, beauty, and sensual delights. Taurus offers the perspective of the earth. This is a day to get yourself out in nature. Make it a point to allow your senses a wide berth of experience.

Indulge in beauty, a walk in the woods, a massage, good food, good sex, and beautiful surroundings. With the Moon in Taurus, even the best massage, sex, or food will not satisfy you if the surroundings are unappealing or shabby. Be sure to make the bed before heading to work and bring flowers home to put on your nightstand. These things will bring great pleasure and support love and comfort in your life. Enjoy beauty and the pleasures of the body.

 

 

CREATE BEAUTY IN YOUR SURROUNDINGS

Saturday, September 1, 2018:

Saturday brings us another day with the Moon in stable, pleasure-seeking Taurus. Don’t expect too much of yourself or others, this may be a very lazy day. This is not a day to attempt to create excitement. You are unlikely to want to go on a road trip or head to the clubs for dancing. You are likely to be more interested in a home cooked meal, a massage, and cuddling on the couch. To make the evening special, add touches of beauty to your home; bring in flowers and chocolate.

With the Moon in slow-moving Taurus, you are able to experience life most fully through your senses. This is a day to slow down, be quiet and still. There is no need to push yourself in the service of any accomplishment.

Indulge your senses. Get outdoors in nature, weed your garden, and walk barefoot on the earth. Listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth is constantly offering.

 

 

LEARNING THROUGH STORIES

Sunday, September 2, 2018:

As soon as you wake up on Sunday morning, you know things have shifted. The Moon entered Gemini while you slept and your desire for beauty and sensual pleasures has receded.

Sunday brings with it the lighthearted, friendly energy of the talkative Gemini Moon to the table, allowing easy engagement with others.

The Gemini Moon encourages communication, curiosity, and the gathering of information. You may feel restless and need to get out of your familiar routines and more fully engage with others. This is a day to gather with friends to engage enthusiastically with others who are interested in sharing their realities and lives through stories. We learn and teach so much when we listen and tell stories. This is a great day to listen to the stories of others and tell our own.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* from 1:57 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 4:01 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

EVENING SURPRISES

Monday, July 2, 2018:

Monday begins with a quietly quirky VOC* Aquarius Moon. There’s no need to hurry into this week and attempting to do so will simply leave you frustrated and feeling bad about yourself. Allow quiet and slowness to lead the way.

At 1:31 PM EDT, the Moon enters mystical, poetic Pisces. If you could take today off from work and simply rest, that would be the best use of this day.

At 5:39 PM EDT, the dreamy Pisces Moon forms a sextile aspect to Uranus. You may finally be ready to engage with others and with the world in general. Your dreams and ideals may be sharp, brilliant, and unusual, leading you into fascinating, forward-thinking conversations.

Bring as many people as possible together to share in your new ideas and listen to the ideas they are willing to share as well. Enjoy the evening’s surprises.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (the time between the last major aspect made in one sign until the Moon enters the next sign) all morning until she enters Pisces at 1:31 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from whatever is begun. This is neutral; simply suggesting that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

LISTEN TO THE TREES SING

Tuesday, July 3, 2018:

Here, in the U.S, with tomorrow being our Independence Day, perhaps you were able to take today off as well. It seems a shame to waste such a sweet and dreamy day at a job unless of course, you are lucky enough (as I am) to do work you truly love.

The Moon is in Pisces throughout the day, forming a lovely Grand Trine with the sensitive Cancer Sun and Jupiter in powerful Scorpio. This configuration offers the opportunity to block out the parts of our lives that are overwhelmingly difficult and simply enjoy the sweetness that is also present in each day.

Go for a walk in nature and open your eyes and your heart to the natural world. Have you listened recently to the trees sing?

 

 

MAINTAIN EASE

Wednesday, July 4, 2018:

These first few days of the week are relatively easy ones. Clearly, that depends on how some of the heavier planets are impacting you directly. We certainly can’t forget that Mars (retrograde in Aquarius) will reach a state of considerable difficulty on Thursday. You may feel the energy of agitation building throughout Wednesday.

Image via Pixabay.

The Pisces Moon will help you go with the flow and perhaps even let challenges bypass you altogether. Thursday is soon enough to deal with what is poking at you! Does it feel like a pebble in your shoe that you can’t stop long enough to remove?
For now, spend the day with your rose-colored glasses firmly affixed.

Here in the U.S., this is a holiday, perhaps you are with family and friends. If you feel anger, impatience, or frustration building, take time for meditation or go ahead and have that extra glass of wine. Whatever it takes to help you to maintain ease.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (the time between the last major aspects made in one sign until the Moon enters the next sign) from 5:47 AM EDT until she enters Aries in the wee hours of Thursday morning. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from whatever is begun. This is neutral; simply suggesting that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

SLOW DOWN

Thursday, July 5, 2018:

If you had Wednesday off from work for the July 4th holiday, it may actually be a relief to get back to your desk on Thursday. Thursday morning brings the assertive Aries Moon along with a hard aspect between Mercury and retrograde Mars. Find a way to release energy that will not come back to bite you.

You may feel angry and have a difficult time controlling your desire to speak your mind with little or no tact. Watch the words and the tone of what needs to be said. Perhaps, writing your thoughts (pause & think before hitting the ‘Send’ button) will help to organize your thinking and make clear what needs to be said.

There is a tendency to blurt out immediately what comes to mind. Hold on and wait or go for a run and release physical energy. That will help.

Remember, before you speak, ask yourself: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? If you follow this, very little will be said and you will get through the day with your relationships intact.

 

 

SEEK COURAGE

Friday, July 6, 2018:

Friday brings us to the 3rd Quarter Moon phase with the sensitive Cancer Sun being challenged by the aggressive Moon in Aries. Where are you feeling pulled to move forward with more courage than you feel you have? Where is your distrust of your own strength holding you back?

At 2:55 PM EDT, with the take-charge Aries Moon squaring powerful Pluto, you are given the opportunity or the expectation to dig deeply into hidden corners of your psyche. Find a level of courage you are not accustomed to working with. Take a step forward, face your fears, and let go of something that has been holding you in a position of victimhood. Freedom exists on the other side.

 

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino

 


SLEEP OUTDOORS

Saturday, July 7, 2018:

Try to sleep until the Moon enters Taurus at 8:51 AM EDT on Saturday morning and approach the day with a perspective of slow, sensual awareness. Enjoy cuddling with your partner, enjoy a hearty breakfast, and a walk in nature.

When the Moon joins with Uranus at 12:46 PM EDT, you may have a new surprising awareness regarding your relationship or what the natural world has to teach you. Try to absorb this awareness without moving too quickly.

At 5:59 PM EDT, when the steady Taurus Moon trines Saturn, stabilize those ideas and consciously bring kindness to all in your circle of influence. Saturday provides a great evening for small, intimate gatherings or quiet time with a deeply loved partner. Given that it is a summer Saturday night, sleeping outdoors would be a lovely adventure.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (the time between the last major aspects made in one sign until the Moon enters the next sign) from 3:09 AM EDT until she enters Taurus at 8:51 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from whatever is begun. This is neutral; simply suggesting that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

COMPASSION, IMAGINATION, & LOVE

Sunday, July 8, 2018:

A lovely Sunday in the forecast and it’s perfect for a day for the beach, time in nature, or if the weather doesn’t cooperate, an afternoon matinee.

At 10:41 AM EDT, the Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to Neptune, allowing you an open-hearted and compassionate view of your life and circumstances.

In considering the full cycle of the Sun and Neptune, a cycle of dreamy, inspirational growth, think about what inspiration began in the first week of March of 2018 and also required attention in the first week of June. Now, the path opens allowing flow that will bring you to an open illumination and spiritual understanding in early September.

Follow the path of compassion, imagination, and love. You can smile internally as your understanding of oneness grows.

 

 

“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”

DETACHED VIEWPOINT

Monday, June 4, 2018:

A very quiet Aquarius Moon is with us throughout Monday. You can stay home and get just as much accomplished as if you go to work or the other way around. Because the Moon is VOC* all day, there really is nothing you need to accomplish.

This is a day best suited for wild, innovative thinking and gathering with others of like mind. With the Moon in Aquarius, you will do well to seek insights and genius ideas in the company of others. Your emotions generally will not get in the way as you are able to set them aside and view your life from a more detached viewpoint. You are more interested in the plight of humanity and in the big picture of others than in your own pesky emotional state.

I find that long VOC* Moon periods can feel a bit frustrating as I can’t seem to settle into anything and feel a bit like I am aimlessly spinning my wheels. Feel free to have a different experience.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:09 AM EDT until she enters Pisces on Tuesday morning at 6:54 AM EDT. This is a VERY LONG VOC* Moon. 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.

 

 

POWER DYNAMICS IN LOVE

Tuesday, June 5, 2018:

The Moon has entered dreamy Pisces by the time Tuesday gets underway but don’t expect a passive or quiet day due to a build-up of significant interplanetary transits perfecting before the day’s end.

At 10:01 PM EDT, Mercury joins with the Sun in the mid-degree of Gemini, shortly before a powerfully stressful opposition from Venus to Pluto.

Pay attention to what you say and what is said to you. Make sure you understand what is bubbling beneath the words. If you had a significant relationship or financial issues that began in the first two weeks of January 2018, notice how that story has played out and is being expressed now.

You could encounter difficult power dynamics in a love relationship or financial situations. Keep this issue in mind for Wednesday as well; these issues will not vanish overnight.

 

GO WITH YOUR IMAGINATION

Wednesday, June 6, 2018:

Les Dames du Marché by Bernard Cadène via Wiki MediaWednesday, June 6, 2018:

As Wednesday begins, you are still working on the difficult underlying story regarding power dynamics in love or financial concerns. You may be somewhat successful in sweeping those issues under the rug due to the challenge from thoughtful Mercury to dreamy Neptune, along with another square building from the Sun to Neptune.

Clarity is not forthcoming over the next few days. With the Sun and Mercury still in chatty Gemini, there is a lot that you would like to say. Don’t rush into anything that involves trying to explain yourself or your position. Watch as confusion and lack of clarity are expressed in conversations all around you. Expect interesting communications as folks try to talk about things they either know very little about or they are unable to articulate what they do know.

Neptune does not support understanding, so it is probably best to wait before speaking your mind about sensitive issues. Neptune does support meditation and dreams. The Moon is in Pisces all day further heightening your connection to spirituality, lack of clarity, and imagination. So spend the day with soft concerns. Rest and dream.

 

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. Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose. Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances. Make your appointment today! 

 

 

DELVE INTO MUSIC, POETRY, MEDITATION

Thursday, June 7, 2018:

Thursday continues with the same challenge to clarity that was with us on Wednesday. Utilize this sense of watery spaciousness by delving into music, poetry, meditation, or other spiritual concerns. Use your imagination and take the opportunity to dream.

All this Neptune activation should fall away rather dramatically when the Moon leaves passive, quiet Pisces and enters aggressive, loud Aries at 5:26 PM EDT.

It may feel like you have been suddenly been released from a fog or having had bandages removed from your eyes. It’s a relief. Of course, this depends on your circumstances. If you are an artist, a poet, or a mystic. this may very well not be a welcome shift.

Most of you will be more than ready to face the next few days with more assertiveness and energy to take action and move forward. Spend the evening on your own doing something physically active. Go for a run, bike ride, enjoy the strength of your body and your ability to use it to whatever extent you are able.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:35 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 5:26 PM EDT. This is a VERY LONG VOC* Moon. 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.

 

CHALLENGE YOURSELF

Friday, June 8, 2018:

You should wake up on Friday morning feeling strongly driven and able to tap into fierce determination and courage. Find a way to use that energy before it slips into impatience or combativeness.

At 6:56 AM EDT, the Aries Moon makes a positive aspect to Mars. If you are feeling short-tempered or aggressive, it is best to go for a run, have a hot sexual encounter, or masturbate. Move the forceful, excitable energy of Mars (Mars rules Aries) through your body.

When the Moon is in Aries, it is time to take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself. This is not a time for empathy or romance, better to go for a direct passionate exchange.

 

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino

ENGAGE THE POSITIVE

Saturday, June 9, 2018:

If you are an early riser, you will want to be aware of the tough square aspect from the Moon to Pluto at 7:43 AM EDT. Anger and power struggles could easily arise. Do what you need to in order to sidestep whatever issue arises with it.

By the time the Moon sextiles Mercury at 12:04 AM EDT, you are able to release those reactive feelings and settle into a conversation that can support the rest of the day.

Don’t make rash decisions regarding love or money in the afternoon under the influence of the Moon square to Venus, as what you need and what you desire may be strikingly at odds. This won’t last long and the evening is fully salvageable.

Make plans to go out dancing or spending time with others engaged in physical activities. Plan something fun and engaging. The day will have its ups and downs but should end on a high note.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:37 PM EDT until she enters Taurus shortly 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.

 

HEALING TOUCH

Sunday, June 10, 2018:

You will wake to a new day with the Moon, now in steady Taurus, joining in the early morning hours with exciting Uranus. Finding excitement in stability or finding your own steadfast core in the midst of anxiety may be the task at hand.

You may encounter some frustration mid-afternoon as the Moon squares Mars at 1:22 PM EDT, again, find your internal strength, maturity, and resoluteness.

This is a good day to spend in the garden, the earth will soothe the places that feel unsettle and frightening. Bring flowers into your home, create beauty around you. Show love in tangible ways. Cook a meal for your loved ones. Offer healing touch.

POWERFUL VOICE; ELUSIVE BEAUTY

Monday, May 7, 2018:

The week starts off with a lot of astrological activity as though to make up for the quiet week we have just completed. Monday begins with a disagreement between Mercury, the planet of reason, and Pluto, the planet of power and darkness. Watch for conversations that involve deep challenges to your beliefs. Take a step forward on a conversation or study that began in late January 2018. Speak with full awareness of the words you choose. Listen with that same clarity.

If there is a power struggle, consider who holds the power. If they do, be prepared to side-step the pressure they bring. If you are the one holding the power, make sure you bring integrity and kindness to the conversation.

More complications ensue as beautiful Venus, the planet of values, resources, and love, forms a challenging square to Neptune, the planet that often bewilders us with its elusive qualities. Stay away from the booze and any shady financial dealings. Make sure you are not deluding yourself in money or love. Take time to appreciate beauty, create a work of art or something else of value, meditate, sing.

You may find yourself restless at bedtime with the 3rd Quarter Square of the Moon phase exact at 10:09 PM EDT. As the cycle progresses and the light wanes, what do you need to begin the process of releasing? With the Moon in Aquarius, look beyond the constraints of conventional thought. Consider the value of minimalism.

 

 

SETTING GUIDEPOSTS

Tuesday, May 8, 2018:

Tuesday is likely a day of adjustment after the multiple activities of Monday. This is a day to settle into deeper thought and a more inspired understanding of beauty and value.

The evening brings the steadfast Taurus Sun opposing Jupiter, the planet of belief and expansion. You may notice renewed clarity regarding your own path to higher understanding. What began to expand in late October 2017? Watch for a new story or a renewed story, regarding the issues of the #MeToo movement. Women are indeed, on the rise. Watch for it.

The Moon is in progressive Aquarius helping you to detach from worry about what the neighbors (family, friends, or whomever) might think or expect of you. You are able to set your own pace, to engage in original progressive thinking and planning for the path ahead. You understand that the path you plan is not for your feet to trod alone, you push forward into the future setting guideposts for those who follow.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* for a short period of time between 10:29 PM EDT and when she enters Pisces at 11:11 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.

 

 

DEEPEN COMPASSION

Wednesday, May 9, 2018:

Late Tuesday night, the Moon left Aquarius behind and slipped into the imaginative sensitivity of Pisces. On Wednesday, she passes quietly through Pisces, forming only a supportive sextile aspect to Saturn in the evening.

Saturn will help you keep your feet on the ground and not get swept into unrealistic, intangible daydreams of unrestrained imagination. Sometimes Pisces can do that, sweeping you away into escapism or dreams. When the Moon is in Pisces, it is not too difficult to get carried away into elusive and poetic fancies.

This will be a good day to create a piece of music, write a poem, or watch a movie. All these things will help you keep harsh realities at bay. Stay away from the booze, drugs, and unrestrained suffering. If you are suffering, turn to music, poetry, or your meditation cushion.

Contemplate the fact of suffering as a truly human condition, something we all experience. This understanding allows you to open your heart to deep empathy and compassion. Look into the eyes of everyone you encounter and know that they too suffer. Offer a silent prayer of unconditional love to each and every one of them.

ESCAPE WITH POETRY

Thursday, May 10, 2018:

There is so much dreaminess on the table this morning, it may be challenging to simply go about the business of living your everyday life. You would prefer to go into your own private, intangible inner landscape. Give yourself the space to do just that. Meditation and rest will support the best use of the day.

Light a candle, spend time alone, allow your intuition and your dreams to speak to you. Pay attention when they do. Write or read poetry that inspires you to enlarge your compassion and unconditional love for others.

Beware of escapism, drugs and alcohol, passivity, and hiding behind victimization. Write a poem instead.

Offer your support to others if you have it to give; ask for support from others if you are in need. Open to love.

 

 

FACE YOUR FEARS; SEE YOUR STRENGTH

Friday, May 11, 2018:

It may come as a surprise on Friday when the soft, passive energies of the Pisces Moon lift. At 8:41 AM EDT, the Moon enters assertive, fast-moving Aries. Set aside your thoughts of soft, dreamy escapism and take onboard an active, direct approach.

When the Moon is in Aries, you may have little patience for others. You do have plenty of energy to engage in physical activities and for demanding what is right for you. It is good to remember that the Aries Moon teaches courage. How do you learn courage? Certainly not by sitting on the couch resting. When the Moon is in Aries, face your fears, move outside your limitations, and learn courage.

At 7:10 PM EDT, there is a lovely trine aspect formed from the Taurus Sun to transformative Pluto. The cycle between the Sun and Pluto is a cycle of empowerment. This cycle began in early January; do you remember what issues regarding power were on the table in your life at that time? The result of what you began then is coming into focus, you can see your way clearly.

You are not there yet but you know what steps to take. The full expression of the power of this cycle will be clear in mid-July. Pay attention and contemplate where you have a powerful impact on others and where others are empowering you.
Face your fears and see your strength.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:03 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 8:41 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

KEEP YOUR WITS ABOUT YOU

Saturday, May 12, 2018:

The most important thing to remember on Saturday is to slow down, watch your words, and speak deliberately. The Moon in Aries offers fast, sometimes quite harsh emotions. You may feel edgy and impatient, you also tend to feel invincible. Calm yourself, don’t jump into any potentially dangerous daredevil acts. Physical activity will help but keep your wits about you.

To add to the inevitable thrust of the Aries Moon, Saturday also brings a challenging square aspect from Mercury to Mars. This brings hot restlessness and possibly anger to your thinking. It may be a real challenge to keep yourself out of verbal confrontations. Indeed, there may be injustices that you simply must speak out against on Saturday. Do so but do your best to not provoke others.

Remember to ask yourself repeatedly, before you say a word: is it true, is it necessary, is it kind? Any communication that does not pass that test should not be shared.

 

 

MAINTAIN A STABLE HEART

Sunday, May 13, 2018:

Intensity amps up on Sunday as the future presses forward taking a first step process that unfolds next week when Uranus finally enters Taurus.

At 6:50 AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of communication, joins Uranus, the planet of revolutionary change. Then, at 8:40 AM EDT, Mercury enters Taurus, the sign of stability.

The Moon, still in Aries, also joins with Uranus, highlighting wild activity to come, when she enters Taurus at 2:15 PM EDT. Immediately, the Moon joins with Mercury, setting the stage for the New Moon on Tuesday and Uranus’ pushes into Taurus. The revolution is here; in your life, culture, the world. Wake up.

What can you expect to happen to the endurance and dependability of Taurus when defiant, unsettling Uranus begins its seven-year residence here? What area of your personal life and our culture will be revolutionized by this shift? Expect the unexpected. Given that Taurus is ruled by Venus, you can anticipate revolution regarding cultural attitudes toward the Earth, women, money, food, love, and beauty.

Think about the rumbling changes you hear which are still in the background. Think about cryptocurrency, women finally beginning to make progress against the patriarchy, polyamory, the changing food industry, and environmental advancements. Your life and your world are changing. Uranus is the Awakener; watch the news, watch your life.

Maintain a stable heart.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* for eleven whole minutes between 2:04 PM EDT and 2:15 PM EDT, when she enters Taurus. 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.
