Let Astrolore help you move from where you are to where you long to be. Contact me TODAY for a FREE STRATEGY SESSION.

 

 

 

This is a very different week from last week. There is simply not too much going on in the heavens. And that, my friends is cause for celebration!

Yes, we still have Mars moving retrograde along with Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto.

We are still working through the issues of how we misuse our direct drive and aggression, individually and collectively.

For the most part, we are simply managing the Moon and her ongoing conversations with all the planets day to day as she goes from one sign to the next.

This is the last week with the Sun in Cancer as it heads into Leo on Sunday!

Ahh, Joy! I confess that Leo season is my joy!

 

 

SET THE STAGE FOR ACCOMPLISHMENT

Monday, July 16, 2018:

The week begins with the meticulous and productive Virgo Moon forming a lovely sextile to Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion. You want to be useful and to properly analyze any situation in order to make improvements. This is a great morning to accomplish tasks quickly and easily.

Later in the afternoon, when the Moon opposes Neptune at 4:24 PM EDT, you may find yourself feeling uncertain about how to proceed. Perhaps, it is simply time to end the work day and take yourself to a movie or meditation center, write poetry, or daydream by a body of water.

Take time before sleep to make a list of all that you want to accomplish over the course of the week. A trine aspect from the Moon to powerful Pluto will set the stage for accomplishment.

 

 

CREATE BEAUTY AND LOVE

Tuesday, July 17, 2018:

Tuesday begins with a sextile from the industrious Virgo Moon to the Cancer Sun. This is a ‘feel good’ aspect and its energy will rest with you until the Moon enters Libra at 3:43 PM EDT.

Because the Moon is VOC* during that time, focus your attention on common tasks; don’t try to dive into complex projects of a long-term nature. Clean out your inbox, do the laundry, or clean out the car.

At 3:43 PM EDT, the Moon enters Libra, offering an evening that supports romantic or diplomatic endeavors, socializing, or creating art. As you interact with others, it is good to remember that while the Moon moves through Libra we all desire companionship and beauty.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* from 6:49 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 3:43 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 a significant future impact.

 

REST WITH PLEASURE

Wednesday, July 18, 2018:

Wednesday offers a day with very little planetary activity as the Moon gently flows through charming, pleasant Libra. One thing to remember about Libra is that being an Air sign it is fundamentally an intellectual charm that is important here. What we want at this time is companionship, friendships, social alliances, and intimate gatherings. We want to engage with others in ways that provide cooperation, diplomacy, and compromise. Enjoy cultural activities, go to a museum, a concert, or a small gathering with compatible others.

It may not be easy to take a stand, be decisive, or speak up for yourself. Let yourself off the hook. Rest in the pleasure. There is always another day to take action or speak up.

 

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! 

 

 

FINDING BALANCE

Thursday, July 19, 2018:

Thursday brings us to the First Quarter phase of the Moon. This puts the Libra Moon at odds with the Cancer Sun. The Libra Moon wants to make things look pretty and nice while the Cancer Sun is more interested in the messy world of emotional bonding.

Libra does not want to get its hands dirty and Cancer is more than willing to do so in the name of love. The theme of the day is found in balancing those two distinct impulses. How can the powerful sensitivity of Cancer feed the Libra need for diplomacy and smoothe social graces? Hold these ideas as you balance the day.

At 9:12 PM EDT, the Moon stops looking for peace and harmony and leaves Libra behind and enters the deeply emotional, dark waters of Scorpio. Head to bed with thoughts of powerful connection with your partner or delve into the dark sphere of your dreams.

The Libra Moon is VOC* from 3:53 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 9:12 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 a significant future impact.

 

CONNECT DEEPLY

Friday, July 20, 2018:

Friday morning may start out a bit rough as the Scorpio Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mars, in his retrograde path. Avoiding arguments over the breakfast table may be the most difficult part of your day. Consider where anger and frustration have damaged your relationships and your credibility. Keep in mind that Mars’ retrograde provides an opportunity to explore, dissolve, and eliminate toxic anger.

The day smooths out and offers an evening that is made for close and deep connections with close friends and lovers. With a sextile to Venus and a conjunction to Jupiter, you are looking for love that expands and fills your heart on a deeply profound level. Don’t settle for light social fare. Connect deeply for powerful soul growth.

 

“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

 

 

GO DEEP TO FACILITATE 

HEALING

Saturday, July 21, 2018:

The general mood of each day is reflected by the transits of the Moon. On Saturday, there are no other transits perfecting so we can simply consider the Moon’s movement through Scorpio. Scorpio gets a bad rap as it is a sign that has a profound need to go deep and explore the inner dark corner of the psyche.

While the Moon is going through Scorpio, you may be more aware of those things that you generally keep out of sight and all the things that polite society would rather we kept hidden under a rug. However, Scorpio suggests the importance of bringing what is hidden into the light, to be excavated, and to be brought forth for healing.

The things that Scorpio hides are usually the more unacceptable parts of our lives and personalities but remember that many folks hide their most precious gifts as well. Whatever you keep hidden is far closer to the surface on these Scorpio Moon days. Look inside, what you find needs light and healing. Provide that to yourself. Show love to the parts of yourself that most need healing.

At 4:01 PM EDT, when the Moon squares Mercury, it is best to think twice about sharing your deep inner thoughts and motivation with others. Keep your own counsel.

 

THE SUN ENTERS OPEN-HEARTED, GENEROUS LEO

Sunday, July 22, 2018:

Sunday begins with a sextile aspect from lovely Venus to expansive Jupiter. The cycle between Venus and Jupiter is a cycle of expanding our deep values. This cycle began in November 2017 and is now wrapping up in order to step onto a higher plane in January 2019. Consider what new step regarding love, money, art, or beauty you’d like to begin then. Now is the time to begin contemplating what will need to be released even as you begin to explore ideas for the next cycle. Think of these cycles as spirals going upward, ending one is really just taking the step to the next level as you spiral upward.

However, the biggest news comes at 5:00 PM EDT when the Sun enters generous, enthusiastic Leo, the sign that Leo rules. Here, we reach the height of Summer. Everyone understands the strength and life-giving force of the Sun. Feel the warmth and remember that life can not exist without the Sun. Now, is the time to absorb the rays and heat of the Sun that will carry you through the times with less light and warmth.

While the Sun is in Leo, folks take vacations and relax their grip on schedules and rules. There is a playfulness in the air. Think of the carnivals and fairs that happen at this time of year. Over the coming month don’t forget to express generosity and play.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* from 5:18 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 6:13 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 a 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 challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”
~ Dane Rudhyar, Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach , 1980.

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

REVISIT YOUR DREAMS

Monday, June 18, 2018:

Monday’s practical Virgo Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to defiant Uranus early Monday morning allowing your emotional self to explore new ideas and ways of getting your needs met.

Later in the afternoon, she forms another sweet trine aspect to level-headed Saturn bringing a touch of reality to the conversation.

With the Moon in Virgo, you will notice yourself drawn toward practical activities. You will want to organize and analyze everything you do. You may have a hard time allowing ‘good-enough’ to be good enough. Don’t allow perfectionism to stop progress. Work on projects and issues that will benefit from paying particular attention to details.

Neptune turns retrograde at 7:27 PM EDT and will remain so until late November. This suggests a need to revisit, explore, and examine your understanding of your deepest imagination, your dreams, and your spirituality.

You will likely sleep through this but just in case: The Leo Moon is VOC* until she enters Virgo at 4:41 AM EDT on Monday morning. 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.

 

 

EXPRESS VULNERABILITY

Tuesday, June 19, 2018:

The Virgo Moon keeps you chugging along doing practical chores and getting things done efficiently throughout the day.

However, during the mid-afternoon, Mercury in sensitive Cancer forms a flowing trine to expansive Jupiter. Conversations may move into unusual depths and the vulnerability expressed may surprise you.

Go with your gut instincts. Listen carefully and trust yourself to know how to respond. Perhaps, you are being called to help someone in deeper need than it appears. If you are the one expressing vulnerability, trust yourself in knowing who to share yourself with. Allow words to open your heart.

 

GRACE AND DECORUM

Wednesday, June 20, 2018:

Challenges arise with the Sun and Moon at odds (1st Quarter Square phase) at 6:51 AM EDT. It can be difficult to know what action to take but you know it is time to move forward with the understanding you gained since the New Moon last Wednesday.

At 8:30 AM EDT, the Moon enters diplomatic Libra, showing you that the best move forward is to face any issue with dispassionate objectivity. Libra asks that you put cooperation and an attitude of refinement ahead of other considerations. Face internal and external work with grace and decorum.

Since May 20th, the Sun has been in inquisitive, curious, fast-talking Gemini. Enjoy this one last day of Gemini. Thursday morning at 6:07 AM EDT the life-giving Sun enters nurturing, inward Cancer.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:51 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 8:30 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.

 

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! 

 

SUN ENTERS CANCER – PROTECTIVE MAMA BEAR

Thursday, June 21, 2018:

At 6:07 AM EDT, the Sun enters the intuitive, domestic sign of Cancer. I want to take this opportunity to clear up a misunderstanding I often see expressed about Cancer. Everyone seems to know that Cancer is sensitive, nurturing, and tender. However, many folks seem to conflate sensitivity with weakness. Please, make no mistake, Cancer is a powerful sign in its own right! Think the nurturing mother bear! Don’t ever mess with Cancer assuming she will not strike back!

While the Sun is in Cancer, you may feel more insular as your attention is drawn inward to your domestic life. Your focus turns to build deep roots and a sense of belonging.

Thursday starts the Cancer season with some clear challenges as an opposition forms between Venus and Mars. It may be hard to appreciate what you have as you keep looking over your shoulder for what you think you would prefer.

Even the cooperative Libra Moon isn’t in the best state to help the situation as she forms hard aspects with Mercury and Pluto. Watch your words and tendency to get hot under the collar. Remember, before you speak ask yourself three things: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? If everything that comes out of your mouth passes that test, you will do fine!

This is unlikely to have much impact on Thursday but the Libra Moon is VOC* after 9:34 PM EDT Friday morning. She will be VOC* until 3:11 PM EDT on Friday when she will enter Scorpio. 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 QUIET DAY FOR CONTEMPLATION

Friday, June 22, 2018:

The Libra Moon is very quiet throughout the day being VOC* until entering Scorpio at 3:11 PM EDT. This is a good day to avoid making decisions or starting new projects, it is a good day for rest, meditation, dreaming, or enjoying vacation.

Once the Moon enters Scorpio, the reset button is hit and you can move forward more easily. You will be called to seek intensity, passion, and deep emotions of all kinds. You have a strong belief that knowledge is power, therefore, you are highly motivated to find out what makes people or situations ‘tick’.

Friday evening is underscored by the Moon opposing Uranus, exposing not only what is intense, deep, and hidden but also what is unusual or eccentric in some way. When the intense and the unusual come together, they always dig up something of interest. Keep your eyes open and enjoy.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Scorpio at 3:11 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.

IS IT TRUE? IS IT NECESSARY? IS IT KIND?

Saturday, June 23, 2018:

You can anticipate waking on Saturday still in the throes of the Sun sextile Uranus. You may carry the intensity of unusual family-centered dreams with you into the morning.

Unfortunately, the quirkiness and possible fun of that transit will likely be overshadowed by Mercury opposing Pluto at 5:26 AM EDT. Try to sleep late and then spend time alone with your thoughts and ideas. Mercury and Pluto can be used in deep contemplation, reading, and writing.

Don’t try to have significant or sensitive conversations, particularly with family members today. It would be too easy to end up in difficult power dynamics with things being said that are best left unsaid.

Once again, remember, before you speak ask yourself three things: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? Make sure all that you say on Saturday passes that test.

When the intense Scorpio Moon joins with joyful Jupiter at 5:11 PM EDT, you can let down your guard a bit and make connections that can end in a lovely nighttime of dreamy connection when Moon trines whimsical Neptune at 10:23 PM EDT.

 

UNDER THE SURFACE

Sunday, June 24, 2018:

Sunday is by far the easier day of the weekend. The deeply profound Scorpio Moon makes nice contact with Pluto and Mercury, encouraging any deep work necessary to sooth any ruffled feathers from Saturday.

After 10:00 AM EDT, we enter another long VOC Moon allowing time to simply be with all that has occurred over the weekend. Rest, relax, allow yourself to have no agenda or expectations.

With the Moon in Scorpio, this relaxation is not light and airy, there is a depth that you may go to as you focus your mind and allow emotions to bubble to the surface. Under that surface, there is much transformation and powerful healing work occurring. For now, just rest and allow it to work its magic under the surface.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:00 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius early Monday morning (12:30 AM EDT). 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.

GENEROSITY OF HEART

Monday, May 21, 2018:

Monday is a quiet day with the creative Leo Moon forming no major aspects to any planets throughout the day.

While the Moon is in expressive playful Leo, it may be difficult to focus on a job or other practical endeavors. You would probably prefer to play with children or engage in creative pursuits. Keep in mind that the higher purpose of Leo is the development of generosity and open-hearted love. Pay attention to your interactions with others; pay attention to the generosity of your own heart.

At 10:02 PM EDT, the Moon enters Virgo which will make Tuesday an easier day to get back to the practical realities of the work week.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) all day until she enters Virgo at 10:02 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.

 

EXPRESS YOUR DREAMS

Tuesday, May 22, 2018:

Tuesday’s practical Virgo Moon helps you focus on simple productivity throughout the day. This should be an easy day to work with detailed information and mundane tasks. With the Moon trine Saturn at 12:20 PM EDT, you are able to see clearly what needs to be done and face the responsibilities at hand.

A sextile aspect forms from Mercury to Neptune as the evening approaches. Your focus will shift as conversations and ideas take on a softer tone. This is a good evening to soothe any harsh edges that may recently have been created between yourself and others. It will be easy to express a gentler more sensitive perceptive. This will be a great evening for any project that entails creative writing or the expression of your dreams.

Head to sleep early and you can avoid a tendency to say more than is advisable. Watch that pillow talk as Mercury opposes Jupiter in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

 

GET YOUR POINT ACROSS

Wednesday, May 23, 2018:

In the early morning hours, pay attention to what should and shouldn’t be said or openly expressed. The opposition of Mercury to Jupiter could have you saying what you didn’t mean to say. Once the day is in full swing that won’t be a problem.
The Moon remains in Virgo forming supportive aspects that will provide a smooth, effective day.

You may want to stay up late on Wednesday night to give a mighty push forward on a project or other endeavors.

You very well may have too much energy to fall into an easy, gentle sleep. At 10:39 PM EDT, a gratifying trine aspect forms between the talkative Gemini Sun to assertive Mars, now in Aquarius. Your ability to creatively use your mind and communication skills is powerful. Engage in an active discussion, debate, or lively conversation. You should be able to get your point across.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:56 AM EDT until she enters Libra Thursday morning at 2:51 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.

DIPLOMACY AND KINDNESS

Thursday, May 24, 2018:

Your spirits feel quite buoyed as you begin the day on Thursday with the Moon newly in peace-loving Libra. A Grand Trine is formed as the Libra Moon lines up to a trine aspect to both Mars and the Sun before 9:00 AM EDT. This is a lovely way to begin the day!

The afternoon and evening bring some challenges as the Moon forms difficult aspects to both relationship oriented Venus and restrictive Saturn. You may notice yourself or others being moody or downright cranky.

Don’t let these quickly passing influences change your course. Continue moving forward utilizing the Libra Moon’s ability to see both sides of all situations, and engage in kindness and diplomacy. Focus your attention on bringing beauty and love to all people and situations you encounter.

 

ALLOW VULNERABILITY; CULTIVATE TRUST

Friday, May 25, 2018:

You awake Friday morning with the gentle reassurance of where you find yourself in your life. At 5:52 AM EDT, expansive Jupiter forms a flowing trine aspect to dreamy Neptune. Your higher understanding and spiritual awareness support expansion and unconditional trust in the higher purpose of your life.

Shortly thereafter, another trine aspect forms between Mercury and Pluto. There are powerful truths to be told. These may entail difficult conversations, perhaps the need to speak of things that are normally kept undercover in your family or social circle. However, you are feeling the strength in your opinions and are willing to stand strong in what needs to be expressed.

At 5:04 PM EDT, with a square aspect from the Libra Moon to Pluto, anger may arise. This is a Moon transit and will pass quickly, do not let it push aside the benefits of what you have accomplished earlier in the day. You may want to spend an hour or two alone in the early evening. Keeping with your own good company will prevent tempers from quick unproductive flare-ups.

With an overnight opposition from Venus to Saturn, Friday night and Saturday may show clearly where hidden rifts reside in your intimate partnerships. Look reality in the eye and allow for deep vulnerability. Do your best to see the situation from the perspective of each person involved. Allow vulnerability; cultivate trust.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:04 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio on Saturday morning at 9:39 AM 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.

CLARITY AND ADJUSTMENTS

Saturday, May 26, 2018:

While you were sleeping, Venus (the planet of love, money, and personal values) opposed Saturn (the planet of reality and stabilization). This provides the ability to clearly see what you have recently developed in your partnerships, finances, and other areas of deeply personal values. The cycle between Venus and Saturn is a cycle of stabilizing love and personal values. This cycle began in late December 2017; consider what began at that time. The growth of what was planted then is now clearly visible.

Make adjustments that are needed now. Look clearly at any mistakes and make changes now. Look clearly at your successes and continue forward with determination. Your understanding of these things may be very different from the perspective of others. Embrace the ambiguity of opinions.

At 9:39 AM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio, profoundly deepening your emotions. Superficial connections and conversations will not cut the mustard. Go deep. Connect profoundly.

The Libra Moon is VOC* until she enters Scorpio at 9:39 AM. 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.

 

DIG DEEPLY

Sunday, May 27, 2018:

Sunday’s Scorpio Moon offers a day for delving deeply into complex emotions and deep connections. The Moon touches off sweetness and expansion throughout the day providing a sense of mystery and dreaminess. You have the patience and concentration to dig deep and find the rich compost beneath what may appear unsightly on the surface.

This is a great day to tackle tasks or conversations that require a clear and focused mind. Look below the surface, dig deeper. You may be surprised to find solutions to long unresolved issues.

Throw away what is no longer needed or useful in your life. Make space for what delights you. Allow change.

That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that 

Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong.

TAKE RISKS WITH YOUR HEART

Monday, April 23, 2018:

Monday’s astrological aspects suggest a simple day with the Moon moving smoothly through playful, fun-loving Leo. Don’t make the day complicated with unnecessary melodrama and tension. This is a good day to applaud someone else’s accomplishments and to step aside and allow another person to take the limelight.

If, however, you find yourself to be the one on stage (literally or figuratively), accept it with grace and style. Focus your attention and expression on warmth, generosity, and open-hearted kindness. Keep your pride and pettiness at bay.

You may want all the attention but as adults sometimes it is best to give others exactly that which we desire.

Today create something fun, play with children, or take risks with your heart.

 

EMBRACE CURIOSITY

Tuesday, April 24, 2018:

Explore ways to increase your connection to your physical body, your ability to assert yourself or your sexuality. In the wee hours of the morning, Mars forms a lovely sextile to Jupiter, the planet of amplification and expansion. Whatever you learn now will help inform and support a powerful shift that begins later this week when Mars connects with dynamic, forceful Pluto.

At 12:39 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of beauty and love, leaves the comfort of Taurus behind to embrace curiosity in Gemini. You will be more interested in conversations with your loved ones than you have been in the past 3 ½ weeks. Curiosity will motivate you on romantic as well as social and financial issues. You will be more interested and interesting but less inclined to deep emotional connection. Keep it light.

At 4:41 PM EDT, the Moon enters meticulous, productive Virgo. Spend the evening taking care of details, analyzing your health routines, and other practical activities.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:40 PM EDT until she enters Virgo at 4:41 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

 

INTENSITY CRACKLES IN THE BACKGROUND

Wednesday, April 25, 2018:

Wednesday brings with it discomfort and heaviness as Mercury forms a challenging square to restrictive Saturn. You may feel the need to say something that just isn’t ready to come out effectively. It may not be easy but try to find patience!

Be gentle and kind with your words.

Even as Venus, newly in Gemini, wants to get things off its chest, Saturn insists that you wait and think carefully before you speak. The Virgo Moon may want to get in on the act with criticism and judgments.

Intensity crackles in the air as we approach the square between Mars and Pluto which is exact on Thursday morning. That energy which we have felt brewing won’t stay in the background any longer. Watch what is happening on the world stage.

 

 

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

Astrology in the hands of a proficient astrologer will 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!  

 

 

 

 

PUT YOUR SHOULDER TO THE WHEEL

Thursday, April 26, 2018:

Make no mistake, this is a time of powerful change. Looking at the social and political upheaval, you can’t miss the intensity of the forces that are beyond your control.

If you have personal planets or any sensitive points between 19 -23° of any of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), the intensity and turmoil in the outer world is clearly reflected in your own life and your own heart. Consider a consultation, contact me.

Now, with Mars joining Pluto, a new cycle begins involving force and power. Read that sentence again. This is not a simple passing Moon transit or a low-key cycle. These are the big kids on the block, playing with fire. It is time to put a stake in the ground, to use your personal power for a cause that you passionately believe in.

Of all the issues that need your attention, it is your responsibility to find the one that speaks to you most strongly. Over the next few days, plan your path forward toward making a difference. It is time to put your shoulder to the wheel.

With the Moon in Virgo, your heart understands the importance of being of service. We each need to serve the higher good, each to their ability.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:50 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 9:13 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING

Friday, April 27, 2018:

The intensity of the conversation that Mars and Pluto began yesterday remains hovering beside us as we move into the weekend. Don’t forget the message of this new cycle: Find a cause you believe in and get to work helping others to make a difference in the world.

Your voice and your backbone are needed and will make a difference. Don’t assume there is nothing you can do, even the smallest efforts make a difference.

On Friday, the Moon is in Libra, encouraging you to ratchet down the potential anger and make a point of understanding each side of the issue. Do not assume that you are right and others are wrong. There are reasons and experiences in people’s lives that result in very different realities.

With the Moon in Libra, have a conversation with someone who sees the world in a radically different way than you do. Listen to what they have to say with an open heart and mind and allow yourself to see another’s perspective. Sharing realities, understanding ‘otherness’ is the only way to reach peace and understanding.

 

THE EVENING BRINGS RELIEF

Saturday, April 28, 2018:

You really do want to understand, cooperate, and make the world a better place with beauty and understanding. On Saturday, you can expect to feel a bit overwhelmed and discouraged when your efforts don’t immediately get you what you had hoped for. The important things in life always seem to take more time and commitment than you may have wished was the case.

As the Libra Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mars and Pluto, she fans the flames of their meeting several days ago. This suggests a reminder of the message that there is work to do. Remember, this cycle between Mars and Pluto asks you to find a cause you believe in and get to work helping others to make a difference. Stay focused on what small steps you can make now to shift the course of your own mind and the minds of others.

By Saturday evening, you can relax and allow these heavy issues to move to the side of your awareness. It will feel good and lift your spirits to shift your focus and find beauty and love in social interactions. Spend the evening with a loving partner or good friends.

 

SCORPIO FULL MOON – REVEAL YOUR TRUTH

Sunday, April 29, 2018:

By the time you wake up on Sunday morning, the Moon has entered intense, cathartic Scorpio. When the Moon is in Scorpio, your emotions tend to go very deep, you look below the surface, and you will settle for nothing less than the truth.

Connections with others must be deeply powerful in order to be worth your while.

At 6:03 AM EDT, the Sun forms a lovely trine aspect to stabilizing Saturn. This settles the day considerably and will remain a major positive influence throughout the day.

The Moon is fully illuminated at 8:59 PM EDT. The Scorpio Full Moon is an excellent time to look in the mirror and see how you are powerfully changing right before your very own eyes. Scorpio insists that you uncover what is hidden and bring it into the open.

Consider the seed you planted at the New Moon on April 15th, how does the growth of that seed help you understand what now needs to be revealed? Allow a deeply concealed part of yourself to come to light that will change your path forward.

In the wee hours, while you sleep, the Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:32 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 3:12 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.

 

 

At the moment I am looking into astrology, which seems indispensable for a proper understanding of mythology. There are strange and wondrous things in these lands of darkness. Please, don’t worry about my wanderings in these infinitudes. I shall return laden with rich booty for our knowledge of the human psyche. ~ Carl Jung

“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

COURAGE AND EXPRESSION

Monday, March 26, 2018:

Monday begins with a flush of dreamy imagination as Neptune leads the Aries Sun into a new morning. Shortly after sunrise, the Moon, who sets the emotional tone for the day, enters Leo. Following a weekend of tension, as the assertive, independent Aries Sun tried to accommodate the sensitive, inward Cancer Moon, the Moon in Leo brings a surge of enthusiasm and drive.

The pioneering Aries Sun and the dramatic Leo Moon are delighted to be in each other’s company. The Leo Moon wants to be seen and the Aries Sun offers courage and pushes her forward. At 6:14 PM EDT, with the Moon forming a lovely trine aspect to the Sun, the spark, flare, and warmth of fire is unmistakable. Express yourself without holding back, allow others to see the full heat and shine of what is within.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:58 AM EDT until she enters Leo at 7:45 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

OPEN HEARTED GENEROSITY

Tuesday, March 27, 2018:

The Moon continues through fun-loving Leo on Tuesday, suggesting that you are able to relax into easy self-expression and play. If there are children in your life, consider spending time with them in simple, creative play. Dress up together, dance, remind yourself of the joy of spontaneity.

When the Moon is in dramatic Leo, you are likely to find yourself wanting more attention and affection. This is a great day to practice giving to others exactly what you yourself desire. Give appreciation and affection without expectation and it will come back to you, possibly from a very different direction but it will come. The downside of Leo is self-centeredness, the positive side is open-hearted generosity. Keep this in mind and go for the GOLD.

 

SEEKING EXCITEMENT

Wednesday, March 28, 2018:

Wednesday brings with it a Virgo Moon (10:30 AM EDT), slowing us down after the previous two days of dramatic emotions while the Moon was in flashy Leo.

However, the transit of Venus to Uranus suggests intense and sudden changes regarding love, money, and creative endeavors. Watch the news, there will be surprises regarding relationships or finances.

On Wednesday, you will go out of your way to avoid boredom as you require more stimulation and excitement than usual. Make sure you set up a plan to accommodate this. If your relationships do not provide the excitement you desire, make a plan and prepare an adventure.

You may feel rebellious and impatient. Remember, this will pass in a few days, don’t imperil your life on a passing whim or restlessness. Watch carefully where you seek excitement through spending, investments, and love. This is the beginning of a one year cycle of invigorating your values through intense excitement and awareness.

Do keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde. Find your excitement in what is already on the table, build on what is already there. This is not the time to begin something out of left field, no matter how shiny it appears to be.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:54 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 10:30 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.

MATURE WISDOM AND MASTERY

Thursday, March 29, 2018:

As the Moon passes through efficient, analytical Virgo, you feel driven to accomplishment on Thursday. The excitement of Wednesday may settle with a thud as the Aries Sun forms a difficult, challenging square aspect to responsibility driven Saturn.

On December 21st, just after Saturn returned to his home sign of Capricorn, the Sun joined Saturn, beginning an annual cycle of bringing seriousness and stability to the table. Now, we reach the First Quarter Square between them, directing us to take a stand, take action, and put a stake in the ground. It is time to alert yourself and the Universe that you are serious about your duties and ready to face reality.

Thursday is a great time to consider what your responsibilities are, what holds you back, and how patients on these matters will teach you self-respect, mature wisdom, and mastery. That is what you are learning about whatever issues you face on Thursday. Face your circumstances with determination.

 

GRACE AND BEAUTY

Friday, March 30, 2018:

The best use of Friday morning is the simple accomplishment of routine, mundane tasks. Don’t try to delve into anything more than that until mid-afternoon. Answer emails, clean out files or clean the refrigerator. 🙂

At 1:52 PM EDT, the Moon leaves industrious Virgo behind to enter graceful, diplomatic Libra. The rest of the day will be good for connecting with others in cooperative social projects.

With the Moon in Libra, it is easy to set your own needs aside as your focus tends to be peace, harmony, and cooperation. You are not willing to argue and are more able to compromise. Peace, calm and beauty are important, and you want to be in polite company, engaging in beautiful surroundings. Enjoy your time with friends.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:59 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 1:52 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 OR STABILIZE COMMITMENT

Saturday, March 31, 2018:

Venus, the planet of refinement, sensuality, attraction, and grace has been in the aggressive sign of Aries since March 6th. This placement has not been comfortable for her and she is delighted to now move into her home sign of patient, predictable Taurus. She will happily remain in until earthy Taurus until April 24th.

With Venus in Taurus, we are able to appreciate and indulge in the beauty of the world around us. Venus speaks to us about what we value most in love, money, and beauty. During this time, you are able to engage in open, level-headed conversations regarding these issues more easily. You trust yourself and others to be more patient and diplomatic in managing love and money.

Venus is not particularly passionate in Taurus but more sensual and willing to build structures and stability. You may find yourself more drawn to commitment. You will also notice a marked increase in your tendency to overindulge.

The Libra Full Moon is exact at 8:36 AM EDT. This brings into clear view the results of the seed you planted at the New Moon on March 17th. Look clearly and make adjustments. This is a good time to consciously balance your needs with the needs of the people you are connected with in love and financial partnerships. Deepen your commitments.

 

COMMITMENT AND POWER

Sunday, April 1, 2018:

Sunday brings some challenges to the Libra Moon as she forms difficult aspects to both destructive Pluto and defiant Uranus. Allow any relationship aggravation to pass without holding on to what someone may have been said in anger or simply off the cuff. Give space and remember that Mercury is retrograde, communications may not be expressed as intended.

Mercury retrograde joins with the Sun at 1:52 PM EDT. There may be conversations, communications, or assumptions that need to be revisited. Step lightly, keep the diplomacy of the Libra Moon close at hand.

At 6:58 PM EDT, when the Moon enters Scorpio, diplomacy is set aside in favor of intensity, depth, and passion. Superficiality won’t cut the mustard. Go deep and bring passion to the table.

Whatever your plans for the weekend, by Sunday night you will have a far deeper understanding of your love relationships, your finances, your commitments, and your relationship to power.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:30 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 6:58 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.

 

“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…”
