INNOVATION & BRIGHT IDEAS

Monday, June 12, 2017:

Monday’s determined Capricorn Moon is a great source of support as you head into the week fully engaged and focused on effort and accomplishment. However, as the day goes on, your ability to maintain that focus may be impacted by last-minute changes in direction.

At 2:46 PM EDT, when the Moon squares Uranus, the planet of upheaval, the entire direction of your work may shift. Do your best not to let this derail you. This is only a Moon transit; please remember that this will pass quickly. Take an extended coffee break and allow innovative ideas to come into your awareness in order to get back to work with renewed excitement and energy.

At 7:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters unpredictable Aquarius, encouraging you to continue developing the surprising innovations that nudged at you earlier in the day. The conventional methods you initially were working with can now shift and allow new ways of viewing the project at hand.

Happy Birthday to Ann Frank, Aaron Farrington, Emily Walter, Chick Corea, and John Steinbeck!

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:46 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 7:45 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

A MESSAGE OF HOPE

Tuesday, June 13, 2017:

Tuesday brings a day full of mental activity, a busy day of thinking and articulating what is on your mind.

Mercury is considered to be the Winged Messenger of the Gods, and is seen as carrying messages between the planets. He moves quickly, activating all forms of communication, intellect, reasoning, and awareness; all of these are within the realm of Mercury’s domain. Pay attention to the nature of your thought processes and the content of your mind.

At 11:44 AM EDT, Mercury forms a flowing trine aspect to philosophical Jupiter, bringing optimism and enthusiasm to your thinking. Then, shortly before bedtime (at 11:29 PM EDT), Mercury forms a challenging square aspect to elusive, dreamy Neptune. What message of optimism is Mercury bringing to your deepest dreams or your spiritual path?

I think Mercury is offering a message of hope to areas of confusion within your soul. Allow yourself to hear the messages that come from your dreams. Meditate and listen in silence to the persistence voice that calls you to the deepest understanding of Universal Love.

With the Moon in innovative Aquarius, your open heart perceives a progressive humanitarian view of your world.

Happy Birthday to William Yeats, Paul Lynde, and Tim Allen!

 

 

EXPRESS YOUR MOST UNIQUE SELF

Wednesday, June 14, 2017:

Blossoming Almond Branch in a Glass by Vincent van Gogh

With the Moon in progressive Aquarius, forming a flowing trine to the Gemini Sun, you will want to express yourself in a highly individualistic manner on Wednesday.

You will be more interested in new experiences that are outside the arena of what has become familiar. If there are areas of your life where you have felt stuck and have been unable to move forward, this is a good time to say what needs to be said in order to facilitate the initial step forward. Listen as others speak, you will hear the originality beneath the ordinary.

Open your mind and allow your most exciting thoughts to gain momentum. At 7:49 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a sweet sextile aspect to Saturn, your wild thoughts and conversations are stabilized. Consider what lasting value is being created as you courageously express your most unusual ideas, your most unique self, or your beliefs regarding individual freedom.

Happy Birthday to Gilda Seelke, Vivian Van Natta, and Burl Ives!

 

 

FOCUS AND ATTENTION

Thursday, June 15, 2017:

Don’t be surprised if no one at your breakfast table seems particularly chipper on Thursday morning. At 6:17 AM EDT, the normally upbeat Gemini Sun opposes restrictive Saturn; immediately on the heels of that challenging aspect, the Moon slipped quietly into Pisces.

It will take focus and attention to use these energies productively, it would be all too easy to fall into self-pity or victim type behaviors. Don’t go there!

The Pisces Moon would rather avoid reality in any number of ways while Saturn opposing the Sun (this transit will last throughout the day and into Friday) demands that we face reality and make a solid effort to take responsibility for the rough places we still find ourselves.

Meditation will help but deep levels of compassion for yourself and others will be your best means for managing this day.

Happy Birthday to James Belushi, Newt Gingrich, and Waylon Jennings!

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:40 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 6:18 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.

 

 

DRIFTY, DREAMY DAY      

Friday, June 16, 2017:

You may be up and seemingly functioning on Friday morning without being fully aware that you are not still dreaming!

As Neptune stations retrograde at 7:10 AM EDT and is closely followed by the Pisces Moon joining her at 14° Pisces, things are not as they seem. It is possible that you will feel particularly vulnerable and emotional, or perhaps you feel suspicious or confused.

The outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) are retrograde for long periods of time and are not challenging the way the inner planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) are during their retrogrades. The reversal of this passive, sensitive energy may take a few days to adjust to.

You may need to take a closer or more prolonged look at some of your more unrealistic plans and dreams.

You will definitely want to take a new look at what needs adjusting in your meditation practice.

The Moon remains in imaginative, mystical Pisces (ruled by Neptune) throughout the day. Have a restful evening in preparation for the weekend when you will have must more energy to work with.

DREAMINESS REPLACED BY IMPULSIVE ACTION

Saturday, June 17, 2017:

Saturday begins slowly; with the Third Quarter Moon in elusive Pisces. It may be hard to shake your dreams or move beyond a profound level of sensitivity. Under this influence, it is best to refrain from expectations of yourself or others.

At 1:55 PM EDT, impulsiveness or excitability will change your mental picture, as the Moon enters dynamic, impatient Aries. This will be a good afternoon for outdoor physical activities. Hiking, skydiving, or biking come to mind. Use your body to keep this powerful energy from getting stuck in anger or aggression. You may feel strongly motivated to start something new; the Aries Moon also providing the courage to step forward and take on whatever challenge you put your mind to.

Don’t plan for a quiet night at home with food and loved ones. You will do better to join your less sedate friends in a loud bar for a few beers!

Happy Birthday to M.C. Escher, Kelly Hurd, Barry Manilow, and Dean Martin!

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:33 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 1:55 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.

 

 

EMBRACE PARADOX

Sunday, June 18, 2017:

Sunday is likely to be a complex day. The fiercely impatient side of the Aries Moon will be on display as the she forms challenging aspects to Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto pushing us to deal with challenges we may rather avoid. Pay attention and don’t let yourself be swept into passionate anger. Go for a walk to cool off if you feel that type of distress arising.

Conflicting messages are suggested by two major aspects perfecting on Sunday afternoon. At 2:47 PM EDT, the Gemini Sun forms a delightful sextile to Uranus which offers an opportunity of excitement, individuality, and freedom.

The conflicting message comes in when Mercury opposes Saturn at 3:07 PM EDT, this will likely feels much like a limitation being put on your thoughts and ideas.

Push and pull. Freedom vs. restriction.

Don’t allow yourself to fret in frustration. Allow both sides to exist side by side. A major key to living this life with joy is to allow and embrace paradox!

Happy Birthday to Paul McCartney, Sylvia Porter, Aaron Hirka, Kecia Gaboriault, and Beth Hopwood!

STRIVE FOR ACHIEVEMENT

Monday, May 15, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

SIMPLIFY AND SHAKE UP YOUR THINKING

Tuesday, May 16, 2017:

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

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

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

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

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:23 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 1:50 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

GATHER IN COMMUNITY

Wednesday, May 17, 2017:

The Spring Witch by George Wilson via Wiki Commons

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

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

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

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

 

 

THE BIG PICTURE

Thursday, May 18, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:33 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 11:52 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

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

 

 

READY FOR AN UPGRADE

Friday, May 19, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy Birthday to Leda Wolfe Hoppe!

SUN ENTERS GEMINI:  TALK ABOUT IT!

Saturday, May 20, 2017:

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

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

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

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

Talk. Communicate. Listen. Learn. Ask questions.

The Pisces Moon becomes VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) at 11:39 PM EDT. Unless you get up awfully early Saturday (the Moon enters Aries at 6:11 AM EDT on Sunday), this will not have an impact. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.                                                                                                

Happy Birthday to Candi Foss and Cher!

 

 

A MORNING ADVENTURE

Sunday, May 21, 2017:

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

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

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

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aries at 6:11 AM EDT.  Unless you are up very early this will have no impact on your day. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

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

STABILITY & DREAMS

Monday, April 17, 2017:

Monday morning should find you feeling strong and capable as you begin the week. The powerful Aries Sun is invigorated and stabilized by a flowing trine aspect to steadfast Saturn at 8:43 AM EDT. Get up, get out, and start the day with a smile on your face and a kind word for those you meet!

In early December, a cycle began of creating something solid to support personal growth and stability. What began in your life at that time? In mid-March, you likely made an effort to support the ongoing growth of that cycle. Now, you should be able to see the full expression ahead. This expression is not here yet but you can clearly see whether the best decisions were made on this path.

Now is the time to make any necessary adjustments to prepare for the full revelation of the cycle which will be expressed or exposed in mid-June.

The Moon is in Capricorn throughout the day, quietly supporting your serious endeavors.

At 9:55 PM EDT, with a sextile to Neptune, the emotional Moon takes on a softer side. Settle in with music, poetry, or a movie that will engage your compassionate or inspirational nature. Sleep early and enjoy your dreams.

 

 

EFFORT & SELF-DISCIPLINE

Tuesday, April 18, 2017:

The Moon continues through responsible Capricorn on Tuesday. Try not to lose touch with Monday’s gift of stability and determination. Tuesday is a trickier day to manage. The Moon engages directly with power struggles & coercion (Pluto), anxiety (Uranus), and potentially, an overblown ego (Jupiter). Do not neglect your meditation on Tuesday!

Before you get nervous about this, please remember that these are Moon transits that pass quickly and will cause no difficulty unless you engage with them through fear or defensiveness. Allow any interpersonal difficulties or challenges to roll off your back. Don’t take the bait and don’t offer it either!

The Moon connects with Jupiter early in the morning, and with mighty Pluto at 9:59 AM EDT. The Moon also forms a challenging square aspect to Uranus at 8:32 PM EDT.

Mid-morning and late evening will likely be sensitive times. Do not allow yourself to be sucked into difficulties, and be sure you are not pulling others into hard situations as well.

This is a day to keep your nose to the grindstone, move a serious agenda forward, and offer kindness to others. They will be grateful and you will benefit. Utilize this as a serious day of effort and self-discipline.

 

 

TIME OF BLOSSOMING

Wednesday, April 19, 2017:

Vibrance of Calm by Nyna Greben via Wiki Commons

Wednesday is a very busy day. Before you are even out of bed, we have reached the Third Quarter Moon which encourages you to release what is no longer working in your life. Bring some items to Goodwill; clean out your closet, let go of something you thought was important that you see no longer serves you.

At 6:52 AM EDT, the Moon enters altruistic Aquarius encouraging you to open your mind to a new perspective as you move into the new season at hand.

Here in northern Vermont, Spring has finally landed with certainty. There is growth and blossoming everywhere! The life force of the Sun enters Taurus, the fixed sign of stabilization at 5:27 PM EDT!

Now, it is time to get that garden planted! Enjoy and observe with reverence the full expression of this season of increase! Over the coming month, there will be much to celebrate with the flowers blooming, the sound of peepers, and the baby lambs in the fields. Allow yourself to feel the opening of your heart into this season of growth.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:57 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 6:52 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.

 

 

COURAGE & MISTAKES

Thursday, April 20, 2017:

In the earliest hours of Thursday morning, while you still slept, Mercury’s retrograde motion brings him back into contact with the steadfast Taurus Sun. This will assist in your adjustment between seasons and will help you to maintain practicality.

However, common sense may falter as Mercury proceeds backward into hot-blooded Aries at 1:37 PM EDT. You are likely to notice your thinking becoming decisive and forceful.

You are now able to locate the courage you need to take action on something you have struggled with over the past few weeks. What is it you need to say that has been difficult? Mercury will remain in Aries (until turning direct on May 3rd).

Pay attention to the difference between assertiveness and aggression, certainty and assault. Say what must be sad with kindness and compassion.

It often takes deep courage to admit to your mistakes and it is likely that is a necessary part of the conversation you must have. We all make mistakes, take responsibility and move forward with determination and love.

 

 

DEEP LONGING

Friday, April 21, 2017:

Friday is not a simple day! First, you will feel the shift as Mars, the planet of direct initiative and dynamic action, leaves Taurus where he has been for the past six weeks. Mars is thrilled to leave behind the slow, earthy energy of Taurus to enter Gemini where he has more freedom to engage in curiosity and enthusiastic action.

Mars will remain in Gemini until June 4, 2017.

The real challenge of Friday comes when exquisite Venus forms a challenging square aspect to reliable Saturn at 7:08 AM EDT. This energy will remain with you throughout the day and suggests a time of questioning your values, intimate relationships, beauty, and your financial stability.

Think back to the beginning of this cycle in late October 2016. Were you beginning a new intimacy or a new relationship with your finances at that time? Contemplate what effort you need to take now that will let yourself, others, and the Universe know how serious you are in the development of your deepest longings.

This transit often leaves us feeling a bit melancholy and sad. Allow yourself to rest and understand that going inward is part of what is necessary.

At 3:43 PM EDT, the Moon enters Pisces bringing you to a sensitive, dreamy Friday evening. If you attempt to go to a party or other social event, you may have a disappointing evening. Stay home, spend time alone or with intimate loved ones. Rest.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:23 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 3:43 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.

DREAMY  AND IMPRESSIONABLE

Saturday, April 22, 2017:

Saturday brings us to a very simple day. If you can avoid having expectations of yourself and others, this can be a lovely day.

The impressionable, dreamy Pisces Moon lazily drifts through the day. The only aspect throughout the day is when the Moon connects with mystical Neptune at 3:57 PM EDT.

You may choose to fall asleep on the couch and wonder where the day went when you awaken hours later; you may want nothing more than to dream or create inspired works of art. Deepen your meditation practice or simply release your solid hold on reality and allow yourself to dream.

Be cautious with alcohol or other substances as you may be more sensitive to them than normal. Enjoy this time of sensitivity and rest.

 

 

CONTINUED SENSITIVITY

Sunday, April 23, 2017:

Sunday continues with much the same illusive sensitivity as Saturday. If you were able to rest on Saturday, make contact with others in a gentle compassionate manner today. Again, do not have high expectations; simply rest in the company of friends or loved ones.

If you were not able to rest on Saturday, focus on self-care, rest, and sensitive inspiration.

At 8:33 PM EDT, the Moon leaves placid Pisces behind and enters courageous Aries with dynamic determination. After such a quiet weekend, it may be hard to sleep as the impulsive, and sometimes combative, Aries Moon wakes you from your slumber.

You will feel ready to head into a new week with gusto when Monday morning comes.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:35 PM EDT until she enters Aries at 8:33 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.

SPRING EQUINOX – SUN ENTERS ARIES

Monday, March 20, 2017:

The week begins with the Sun entering Aries at 6:28 AM EDT. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox! It is bringing with it longer days, a vision for the future, new ideas, and new plans.

The Spring Equinox alerts us to a time of new beginning with plenty of reason to celebrate! This is a moment of balance and equanimity as the earth’s axis is pointing neither away from nor toward the Sun.

The shift may not initially feel as energizing as you may expect. With the expansive Sagittarius Moon joining with overly serious Saturn at 6:38 AM EDT, followed by her movement into Capricorn at 11:31 AM EDT, there is seriousness and a conservative edge to the day.

At 11:59 AM EDT, the Capricorn Moon forms a challenging aspect to the Sun, newly in Aries. Consider that Capricorn is the sign of maturity, authority, and caution while Aries is the sign of youthfulness, impatience, and excitability. When these two signs challenge each other, something has to give.

This is the Third Quarter Square phase of the Moon; it is a time of release. What has been building since the New Moon on March 27? Take it easy today. Let go and prepare for warmer days. Spring will soon begin in earnest.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:38 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 11:31 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.

 

 

INSPIRATION SERVES PRACTICALITY

Tuesday, March 21, 2017:

Tuesday, as the emotional Moon continues through responsible Capricorn, you are reminded that even with Spring in the air you have plenty of work to do.

At 12:17 PM EDT, even your serious nature welcomes your imagination and ability to dream. With a positive sextile aspect between the Moon and Neptune, your dreams can produce real world and practical results.

At 6:20 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a challenging square to Mercury. You are serious about the ideas that have grasped your attention.

All in all, this is a simple day of hard work with a lovely bit of inspiration. Utilize that inspiration; it will serve practical reality.

PRACTICE FLEXIBILITY

Wednesday, March 22, 2017:

Wednesday may start out a bit messy. The Aries Sun is ready to shine a little brighter without the restrictions of the Capricorn Moon. However, as the day begins, the serious Capricorn Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unsettling Uranus.

The Capricorn Moon seeks structure and demands responsibility, and yet, Uranus throws a monkey wrench into that idea as he seeks innovation and even revolution. This combination can create aggravation and upheaval throughout the morning. Work on your ability to be flexible; it may not come easily but will be well worth the effort.

The rest of the day with the Moon VOC* may just feel a little off kilter. Don’t attach yourself too much to accomplishments or forced engagements. At 10:29 PM EDT, the Moon will enter progressive Aquarius bringing a much greater sense of freedom and lightness to Thursday morning.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:20 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 10:29 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.

 

 

DEEPEN YOUR THINKING

Thursday, March 23, 2017:

Thursday begins with a lovely sextile between the quirky Aquarius Moon and beautiful Venus. Enjoy the morning.

Some agitation may occur when the Moon squares aggressive Mars at 5:20 PM EDT. Use your body to release this tension, go for a walk, chop some wood, or engage your body with physical effort.

As the evening approaches, you will feel expressive Mercury beginning to form a challenging square aspect to powerful Pluto, which will be exact at 8:44 PM EDT. Be aware of verbal power dynamics. Continue to make a concerted effort toward internal and external flexibility. Watch your responses to communications that come your way. Take three slow breaths before responding.

Don’t take what is said personally and watch the words that come out of your mouth as well. It is easy to say things that will be taken in a way that you many not intend. Be aware of your words, emails, and all communications.

This would be an excellent evening for deep study or to work on a powerful speech or other significant writing project.

 

 

WHAT WILL BE REVEALED?

Friday, March 24, 2017:

If you were engaged in a significant conversation, an important study, or a writing project on Thursday, Friday will be the day to expand upon and illuminate those conversations and ideas. At 8:45AM EDT, Mercury opposes Jupiter expanding your creative intelligence, your faith and belief in your ideas.

With the Moon in objective, progressive Aquarius forming delightful aspects to expansive Jupiter, thoughtful Mercury, and quirky Uranus, you can expect this to be a highly innovative day for humanitarian efforts, expansive ideas, and bringing your voice to a public arena. This is the full illumination of a cycle that began on October 11, 2016! Watch what is happening in the current political administration.

Pay attention for big revelations in your own life and on the world and national stage.

ARTISTS AND LOVERS

Saturday March 25, 2017:

Saturday offers a day to engage in actively seeking love and passively accepting love. Both sides are offered. At 6:07 AM EDT, the Moon enters compassionate, dreamy Pisces enabling us to swim within deeply emotional waters. At 6:17 AM EDT, the Sun and Venus come together in the highly assertive and active sign of Aries. Emotionally, you may get lost in sensitivity and imagination while simultaneously you know you must take action to directly go after what you truly desire. Make direct contact with love or expressions of beauty.

Once you have made direct contact with the object of your desire, allow yourself to passively engage in deep compassion or dreamy mystical states.

Bring your attention to love and beauty. This is a day made for artists and lovers.

 

 

EXCITEMENT 

Sunday, March 26, 2017:

Sunday continues with some of the dreamy sensitivity from Saturday courtesy of the surreal Pisces Moon.

But, you probably won’t be thinking too much about all of that as there is intense excitement in the air that will require all of your attention! At 11:05 AM EDT, Mercury conjoins with Uranus beginning a one year cycle of mental stimulation. Pay attention to unusual, new, or exciting ideas that come to mind. Perhaps you will hear or read something that surprises, excites, or even shocks you. Unexpected information may be revealed that will begin a new process in your life.

If you experience any sort of sluggishness or depression on Sunday, stop and consider what is it that needs to be said that you are avoiding. Something wants to be revealed. Go ahead, say it! Yes, it may very well set you on a new path, but it is a path that must be taken.

DETERMINATION MEETS CONFUSION

Monday, February 27, 2017:

Don’t expect to settle into calm terrain yet! When impulsive, possibly angry, Mars opposes expansive Jupiter at 9:24 AM EST, the challenges of last week are ratcheted up. There is an overabundance of heat and powerful determination.

With the Moon still in Pisces, you may feel unclear and even confused by the circumstances and shifting events of the past five days. Whatever wake-up call or shocking revelation you have had is going to take some time and inner work to process.

When the sensitive Pisces Moon conjunct Chiron at 1:09 PM EST, you will seek a silent place of healing. Take yourself and your process seriously; go inward even as you support those you love.

With the Moon square Saturn at 6:07 PM EST, you may feel the need for time alone. Respect that for yourself and others.

At 11:51 PM EST, the Moon releases her elusive sensitivity as she enters dynamic, independent Aries. You will be ready to face a new day on Tuesday.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:07 PM EST until she interested Aries at 11:51 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.

 

 

 

BOLD COURAGEOUS LOVE

Tuesday, February 28, 2017:

Finally, we are offered a day of astrological calm on Tuesday. Perhaps, calm is a relative term when the emotional Moon, romantic Venus, defiant Uranus, and dynamic Mars are all in Aries, the sign of impulsive determination. Wow. That is a lot of assertiveness that is bubbling alongside the soft sensitivity of the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune all in Pisces. You cannot really believe all that you see (fake news indeed).

Even with all of this as we come off the past week’s intensity, we will take this moment to breath and relax. The only major aspect throughout the day is the Moon conjunct Venus at 9:54 PM EST.

Consider your most deeply held values; contemplate your own pursuit of love, money, and beauty. Go to bed early, make love with your partner or connect with your own self-love.

Understand that there is boldness and courage in your engagement in love at this time.

SIDESTEP HOTSPOTS

Wednesday, March 1, 2017:

Wednesday begins with the aggressive Aries Moon having difficult conversations with obsessive Pluto, anxiety producing Uranus, Jupiter (the planet that simply enlarges whatever picture we are looking at), and aggressive Mars. It is a good idea to carefully observe your own emotional triggers and sidestep other people’s hotspots. This is not a day to speak your mind or engage in difficult conversations. No one will win.

At 9:19 PM EST, the Aries Moon forms a stabilizing trine to steadfast Saturn calming us in time for sleep.

At 9:43 PM EST, you are certainly ready to drift into dreamland, spend time in meditation, or pour yourself an extra glass or two of wine. Your perspective of the circumstances you find yourself in may be highly distorted. Find a way to express your most creative imagination and get a good night’s sleep. Keep your notebook handy to write down your dreams when you wake up on Thursday morning.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:19 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 2:43 AM EST on Thursday 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.

 

 

 

CONNECT WITH KINDNESS

Thursday, March 2, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in Taurus, which you would normally expect to bring solid relief to all the intensity we are living in.

However, with Jupiter now opposing Uranus, whatever you are expecting will be larger and more exciting (or disastrous) than you anticipate. You have the sense of desperately wanting to break free of limitations and restrictions and are highly aware of the most positive as well as the most negative expression of future possibilities.

I encourage you to watch the reflection and the rumbling changes of these energies in your personal life as well as within our culture, our government and the world.

Wherever you find yourself, be an example of calm, open-hearted love, kindness and acceptance. Don’t let yourself get caught up in your own situation so much that you miss the opportunity to make significant, deep connection with others. We are all in need of an extra dose of kindness. Be that example in the world, show the love in your heart.

 

 

 

SIMPLY REST

Friday, March 3, 2017:

Friday presents us with a quiet day of rest. Following a smooth, easy trine aspect to Pluto at 10:20 AM EST, the solid Taurus Moon is VOC until 5:06 AM EST Saturday morning. VOC stands for void of course, meaning that the Moon has made its final major aspect while in one sign until it enters the next sign.

In other words following her conversation with Pluto, she doesn’t speak to any of the other planets until she enters Gemini early Saturday. This slows down all activity and gives us time to rest.

The intense energies of these past weeks have us all on edge; and no, it is not over. For Friday, allow yourself to take a break. Go home after work, cook a nice meal and spend time doing something that simply makes you happy. Take a bath; give your lover massage. Rest.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:20 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 5:06 AM EST on Saturday 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.

VENUS RETROGRADE – WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

Saturday March 4, 2017:

By the time you wake up Saturday morning, the Moon will be in Gemini encouraging conversation, friendliness, and curiosity.

The important thing this week occurs on Saturday as Venus turns retrograde at 4:09 AM EST. She will remain retrograde until April 15th. This is an important period of time. Pay careful attention. Venus goes retrograde approximately every 2 years. As with any retrograde, it is important to refrain from forward motion regarding the issues related to the planet involved.

Venus represents the things we value most dearly, our love relationships, money, art, romance, and beauty. Venus represents our deepest personal values. During this time, it is important to go inward and get crystal clear on the things that you value most highly in your life.

Don’t be surprised if past lovers show up on your doorstep or in your FB feed. What do you need to revisit from the past? What can you learn by looking at what you have valued in the past?

Consider carefully what is of the highest value in your life. Consider that what is in your life has higher value than you may know. Consider what it would take for you to be deeply satisfied. Could you be satisfied exactly where you find yourself?

This is a time of contemplation, not forward motion on these issues.  Do not, I repeat, DO NOT start a new romantic relationship or make new financial investments.

 

 

 

ACTION TO STABILIZE

Sunday, March 5, 2017:

Sunday brings a very active Gemini Moon offering you many opportunities for connections, conversations, and engagement with friends and family.

Early in the morning, before you head into all that activity, there may be some challenge as you are simply not sure which way to turn. Once you determine the direction and take action to move forward, the day will smooth out.

At 6:32 AM EST, the chatty Gemini Moon squares the passive Pisces Sun. You will want the action of the day to be something that moves forward the intension you set in motion, or the seed you planted at the New Moon last weekend.

At 3:45 PM EST, assertive Mars forms a pleasing trine aspect to steady Saturn. This will assist in accomplishments coming easily and hard work moving smoothly. As you push forward into the future, you feel deeply supported by structure and stabilization. This is a day when your communications can help to stabilize your actions.

Bring folks together to get a project done that involves both intellect and physical action. Enjoy time spent with friends accomplishing projects and taking action to move your life forward.
