Do you want to work with clients but are unsure how to move forward?
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*.
*The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
*The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

FOSTER KINDNESS

Monday, January 29, 2018:

Monday morning begins with a dreamy trine aspect from the deeply sensitive Cancer Moon to Neptune at 10:19 AM EST. You may find it difficult to face the realities of the workday. Much of your consciousness longs to remain floating in Dreamtime.

At 9:34 PM EST, the Moon forms an opposition to Pluto. This could trigger a return to difficult interpersonal patterns that you hoped were in the past. Old resentments may raise their ugly heads. Consider that what you are reacting to may have little to do with the current situation and much more to do with patterns from the past.

Head to bed early, don’t allow this quickly passing transit to impact the week.

Keep attuned to and foster the protective side of the sensitive, nurturing Cancer Moon.

 

ANTICIPATE OPENING

Tuesday, January 30, 2018:

With a pre-dawn, challenging square aspect formed from the Moon to Uranus at 5:45 AM EST, you may awake on Tuesday morning with a bit of anxiety from an interaction before sleep or uncomfortable dreams. Allow that stress to pass and move into the day.

At 1:53 PM EST, the Moon allows us to set aside our moodiness as she enters playful Leo. It is true that you will not have access to nurturing type sensitivity, but the tradeoff is that you will likely feel more optimistic and upbeat.

At 6:12 PM EST with a lovely trine from the Moon to Mars (in Sagittarius), you are able to express your generosity and creativity in an open, playfully dramatic manner.

Wednesday morning will bring the Leo Full Moon; enjoy the sense of ‘almost there’! Think of a flower about to open, the petals straining within the bud. Where do you feel that anticipation in your life now?

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:41 AM EST until she enters Leo at 1:53 PM EST. 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.

 

LEO FULL MOON: BALANCE FEMININE ENERGIES

Wednesday, January 31, 2018:

January ends on a powerful note. At 8:27 AM EST, we come to the Leo Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse which falls at 11° Leo. A Lunar Eclipse deepens the intensity of the Full Moon.

Madalena Cabral by Ana Cabral Campos via Wiki Media

Each Full Moon brings us to a point of clarity. The direction of what began two weeks ago at the New Moon should show its face clearly. Wednesday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is aligned with an opposition to Venus, the planet that relates to the feminine principle, as does the Moon itself. Venus represents the feminine ideals of beauty, resources, and the ability to form loving partnerships. The Moon represents the feminine ideals of mothering, protecting, and nurturing. Remember, this has nothing whatsoever to do with gender; all of us, regardless of gender, have the Moon and Venus in our charts. We each share both feminine and masculine attributes within our personal patterns. With an opposition between these two energies, this aspect suggests the importance of considering how these sides of your feminine nature seek reconciliation.

Look at the opposing houses that are ruled by Leo and Aquarius in your personal chart. This is where you are currently seeking this balance. Opposing houses can be seen as two sides of the same coin. Bring them together. If you do not know your chart well enough to understand this, simply consider where in your life you need to bring balance to personal issues vs collective issues, generosity vs restraint, ownership vs freedom.

At 8:39 PM EST, Mercury, the planet of your thinking mind, enters wildly innovative Aquarius. Mercury will remain in Aquarius until she enters Pisces on February 18, 2018. Enjoy and take advantage of the sharpness of mind that is available as Mercury moves through this Fixed Air Sign. Aquarius is considered the sign of genius, not because of extreme intelligence but because it allows the mind to move in directions and go into places it has never gone before. During this time, allow your mind and wild imagination free reign!

HOLD STEADY

Thursday, February 1, 2018:

Thursday begins with the Moon still in flashy, dramatic Leo. However, she is much quieter than normal, responding in a subdued manner throughout the morning. You would probably prefer to spend the day involved in a personal creative project. By the time the Moon enters Virgo at 2:13 PM EST, you will finally feel ready to pay attention to any necessary details and concentrate on slow, steady effort.

At 8:49 PM EST, the sometimes overly particular Virgo Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mars. It would be quite easy to get into a hotheaded argument that you would soon regret. Let aggravations roll off your back, as long as you don’t engage that energy the evening will settle down.

At 10:21 PM EST, the refined Virgo Moon forms a stabilizing, steadfast trine aspect to Saturn, allowing you to fall asleep with ease and renewal.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:59 AM EST until she enters Virgo at 2:13 PM EST. 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.

 

ANALYSIS AND ADJUSTMENTS

Friday, February 2, 2018:

Friday holds very little astrological activity. In the absence of major planetary movement, we have the Moon to consider. Remember, that the Moon takes approximately 2 ½ days to transit through each of the signs of the zodiac. Life cooperates with us when we cooperate with life. Go with the energy of the sign the Moon is passing through.

The one aspect the Virgo Moon makes is an opposition to Neptune at 11:29 AM EST, this brings some challenge to your ability to find clarity in the details. Take a dreaming break and by mid-afternoon, clarity will return.

The Moon is in Virgo, asking that we find a steady pace of activities that focus on meticulous efficiency and even nitpicking detail. Focus on tasks that require concentration and analysis. Look for practical solutions and do your best to avoid criticism and judgment of yourself and others.

Look carefully at your health regime and make adjustments as necessary. This is not an evening that would be much fun for social playfulness. You are more inclined to staying home and puttering with home projects or preparations for the weeks ahead.

COME TOGETHER

Saturday, February 3, 2018:

With the Moon in Virgo early in the day, you can continue with your mundane projects and tasks (like cleaning out the closets and pruning your houseplants). However, there is a good deal more energy available as you move into the day.

At 10:57 AM EST, with a lovely sextile aspect between Mercury (the planet of mind and communication) and Mars (the planet of direct action) you are offered an opportunity to speak your truth and take action on your words. Innovative ideas have the opportunity to unfold into wise and optimistic action.

At 4:47 PM EST, the Moon enters Libra suggesting the desire for a more social evening ahead. With the Moon in refined Libra, you may find yourself more aware and concerned with creating harmony in all personal interactions. You want to create pleasure and be appropriate.

This may be a challenging evening to be clear about what you truly want for yourself but an easier evening to find consensus. Remember, Libra is represented by the scales and all sides of every issue must be examined and balanced. This is a great time for romance and friendly social gatherings. Come together.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:06 AM EST until she enters Libra at 4:47 PM EST. 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.

 

OVERINDULGENCE IS NOT SO BAD 🙂

Sunday, February 4, 2018:

Perhaps, you went overboard with your romantic or social desire to please others on Saturday evening. Maybe you find yourself on Sunday morning in a situation where you and a friend or partner are busy overindulging yourself and each other. Are you are not looking honestly at what you need to do to grow in wisdom and understanding of your relationship and how it fits into the overall vision for your life? This is not something you need to do anything about right now, just being aware of it will help you to make different choices as you move forward in this particular relationship.

Early in the afternoon, with a square from the Libra Moon to Saturn, you may be cranky and simply need time alone. Give yourself that time and be ready to come back to a friend, partner, or lover later in the afternoon for a lovely evening. The Moon forms a delightful trine aspect to Sun at 9:36 PM EST, ending the day on a note of support and love.

CURIOSITY IN COMMUNICATION

Monday, November 6, 2017:

Monday presents us with relatively calm but fully engaging day. The Moon is in inquisitive, perspective Gemini. Allow yourself to maintain an open attitude toward all the folks you encounter. Ask questions, encourage an open exchange, and share your unique perspectives with others. In all of this, show a deep level of respect and curiosity.

At 9:58 PM EST, the Gemini Moon opposes stabilizing, duty-bound Saturn. Go to sleep early enough and you won’t feel the heaviness that is often a part of this serious energy.

 

 

SENSITIVITY AND DEEP CONNECTION

Tuesday, November 7, 2017:

At 5:45 AM EST, the Moon enters protective, sensitive Cancer allowing the general emotional state of the day to turn inward. Shortly thereafter, Venus, the planet of deep, personal values, enters the powerful waters of Scorpio where she joins with both Jupiter and the Sun.

Over the coming days, Venus reaches out toward Jupiter, allowing the depth of passion and love to deepen and release. On November 13th, they will join together at 7 degrees Scorpio, beginning a new cycle of expanding the intensity of deep love and connection.

At 3:48 PM EST, the sensitive Cancer Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to expansive Jupiter. Allow deep love, connection, and prosperity to flow. Spend money, create art, and give love.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:40 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 5:45 AM EST. LOL! Five whole minutes; you will probably be sleeping or brushing your teeth!

 

 

ALLOW THIS SNAG TO PASS

Wednesday, November 8, 2017:

Rouen, Rue de L’Epicerie by Camille Pissaro via Wiki Media

Wednesday morning brings a sense of belonging to your situation. Whether you spend your day at work, at home, alone, or in community there is a sense that you belong.

At 10:06 AM EST, that sense may hit a snag as someone in the environment may push an agenda or try to hold power or control over you. This is a simple Moon transit and is likely to be rather subtle and won’t last long. If you pay attention, you will, however, notice it. Perhaps, it is an internal thing where you are the one pushing the agenda or holding power over another. Go inward and check your own level of integrity.

In the very early hours of Thursday morning, the Cancer Moon also has a challenging aspect to unsettling, exciting, and sometimes defiant Uranus. Get to bed early and allow these energies to pass without distress. No early morning tweeting please! 🙂

 

 

BEGIN YOUR PLAN FOR 2018

Thursday, November 9, 2017:

Depending on how early you get up on Thursday morning, you may or may not encounter ongoing sensitivity from the past few days. At 7:30 AM EST, the Moon leaves emotional Cancer behind to enter exuberant Leo. You will be able to set aside that sensitivity and open yourself to a more generous and playful state of self-expression.

Another early morning event occurs at 7:12 AM EST, with the passionate Scorpio Sun forming a sextile aspect to subversive, transformative Pluto. The cycle between the Sun and Pluto (an annual cycle of empowerment or destruction) began on January 7, 2017.

As you prepare for the new cycle, which will begin in January of 2018, consider what you will need to release as you prepare for the next cycle. Simply stated, this as an important time to consider what needs to be released and to begin to plan for the new cycle ahead. Yes, begin to envision your personal intentions and strategies for 2018!

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:15 AM EST until she enters Leo at 7:30 AM EST. 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 NIGHT FOR SELF-EXPRESSION

Friday, November 10, 2017:

I think you can anticipate a pleasant, even fun, morning. Get to work early, engage with others; show-up as your most authentic self while holding space for others to feel safe in their full personality expression as well. Folks will probably be feeling fairly positive and upbeat as they prepare for the weekend ahead.

Late afternoon may bring a bit of a slump as we reach the Third Quarter Moon phase at 3:37 PM EST. With the Sun in intensely private Scorpio and the Moon in playful, expressive Leo, there may be a conflict in how to move forward. Allow any stress to pass by observing without reacting to difficult (internal or external) interactions. Release and move forward, this is simply a Moon transit and will pass quickly if you do not engage with it.

If you are hoping for any party type activities, Friday is your night. Go to the theater, go dancing, engage with others in a big way, and enjoy playful expressions of all sorts.

Saturday night will be best suited for quieter endeavors.

PLAN FOR MAGIC

Saturday, November 11, 2017:

Start Saturday off with simple pleasures, a low-key yoga class, brunch with friends, or a walk in the woods. Whatever you choose to do early in the day, make sure you have no agenda other than enjoyment. Other energies and ideas are rattling around in your head through the morning hours but allow them to be non-obtrusive while you simply enjoy the morning.

Saturday’s flowing trine to inspirational Uranus brings focus to the afternoon as you are provided with the ability to explore new ideas and unusual innovations. Nail these ideas down, bring them into reality as you make definitive goals on which to build your most inspiring, inventive ideas.

Once the Moon enters industrious, efficient Virgo at 11:42 AM EST, commit those goals to paper. Sign and date your goal statements, revisit your statement regularly and allow magic to occur.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:56 AM EST until she enters Virgo at 11:42 AM EST. 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.

 

 

PRACTICAL DREAMS

Sunday, November 12, 2017:

Sunday may bring minor challenges but they are rather sweet challenges. 🙂

The Moon is in highly practical Virgo throughout the day, encouraging you to spend time on analytical or organizational projects. Perhaps, you simply need to do laundry and clean the house.

However, at 8:24 AM EST, the orderly Virgo Moon makes an opposition to dreamy, fanciful Neptune. With this aspect in play, you may want to open a bottle of champagne while you clean the house and do the laundry! Perhaps, you can take a break from the work to watch a movie, meditate, or simply rest and dream. A dreamy but analytical organizational day!

At 7:04 PM EST, when the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to transformative Pluto, you can dive into gratitude and the depth of empowerment you are developing as you grow in self-understanding.

“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

CLEAR THE PATHWAY TO LOVE

Monday, February 6, 2017:

The week begins with the Moon in talkative Gemini, pay attention and you may notice that people are very willing to talk about their emotions. Throughout the course of the day, you will find plenty of people to talk to and things to talk about.

The Moon forms lovely aspects to the vital Sun, inspirational Uranus, and idealistic Jupiter. Your conversations should have an air of expansion and the ability to stimulate excitement. Monday will be a great day to engage in any writing projects or public speaking.

The big news on Monday is that Jupiter, the planet of enthusiasm, confidence, and philosophy turns retrograde at 23° Libra. Jupiter has been moving direct since May 2016, it has been in Libra, the sign of partnership and diplomacy, since September 9, 2016.

If you have been confidently moving forward in a relationship or other diplomatic project, now is the time to slow down and look carefully at any places you may have expanded too quickly or any places where you have not built in the proper structure and groundwork to support the next steps forward. Jupiter will remain retrograde until June 9, 2017.

Over the coming months, you would be well advised to revisit conversations, plans, and expectations that have previously been made (or assumed) with loved ones or partners. You may feel quite differently regarding your partners or your ideas related to the relationship in general, now than you did in May 2016. Does your partner know what has changed in your heart? Make sure the road is clear before pushing forward again in June.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:53 PM EST until she enters Cancer on Tuesday morning at 2:03 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

CLARITY OF MIND

Tuesday, February 7, 2017:

Don’t be surprised when you wake up Tuesday morning feeling moody and emotional, and yet also intellectually inquisitive, with great mental clarity and unusual ideas.

Mercury, the planet that represents your thinking, communications, and even your perceptions, just entered unconventional, quirky Aquarius while you slept.  Mercury is moving quite quickly and will only remain in Aquarius until February 25th.  Enjoy the sharp clarity that Mercury brings in this sign, as you are able to think and communicate from a space of objectivity and without being overwhelmed with emotional depth or confusion.

This is a time when your thinking can enter innovative and unpredictable realms. During this time, you may find very unusual and unexpected solutions to problems that have recently seemed insurmountable. During times of Mercury in Aquarius, your thinking can move far outside the box of convention and into new, unpredictable arenas.

A large part of the day may hold some anxiety as you attempt to adjust to this new way of thinking because for the past month Mercury has been in conservative, authoritative Capricorn. This move signals a big change in attitude and thought.

At 8:20 PM EST, when the Cancer Moon forms a smooth flowing trine aspect to Neptune, you are able to release anxiety and allow compassion and your softer emotions to move through you, allowing you to deeply understand others and to express a very tender side of love.

 

 

THE VALUE OF FACING FEAR

The Two Brothers by Elenore Abbotta via Wiki Commons

The Two Brothers by Elenore Abbotta via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, February 8, 2017:

On Wednesday, the highly emotional Cancer Moon triggers the familiar ongoing anxiety within the culture as represented in the cardinal T-square between transformative Pluto, revolutionary Uranus, and expansive Jupiter.

On a personal level, your emotions may be quite close to the surface. It is easy to feel vulnerable and possibly afraid of the circumstances and the position you find yourself in.

At 4:59 PM EST, the tender Cancer Moon forms a challenging square aspect with Jupiter, you may experience this as a feeling of being overwhelmed by circumstances beyond your control.

As the Moon trines Chiron, we are directed to stay engaged, rather than turning away from your fear, but looking directly into the face of fear. You may find an unexpected pathway into your own healing by directly engaging with your deepest fears.

Offer compassion and love to those you encounter.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:59 PM EST until she enters Leo on Thursday morning at 4:41 AM EST.

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

 

 

OPPORTUNITIES AND EPIPHANIES

Thursday, February 9, 2017:

I expect that you will feel like a great weight has lifted when you wake up Thursday morning. The Moon has moved into dramatic Leo bringing light, warmth, and expressive color to the day.

At 12:20 PM EST, the playful Leo Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to Venus, the planet of love and value.  Allow a sweet flow between the love you give and the love you receive. Take nothing for granted and continue to offer a warm heart of generosity.

At 4:16 PM EST, the most significant aspect of the day brings a sextile between the Sun and non-conformist Uranus. A sextile offers opportunities and possibilities. The cycle between the Sun and Uranus is a cycle of developing individuality, reaching for what is unusual, and allowing yourself to go against the grain of cultural expectations.

This cycle began in early April of 2016. Think about what began in your life at that time. Now, you have the possibility of creatively engaging in a process of releasing or changing the form of what began that time. If what began then is still of value in your life, it is now time to get creative about how to begin a new form in mid April 2017. Explore ideas that will bring deep inspiration to the conversation. Keep your eyes open for unconventional and unusual epiphanies!

 

 

LEO FULL MOON, LUNAR ECLIPSE

Friday, February 10, 2017:

Friday begins relatively slowly, although we have an underlying awareness of the intense illumination of the evenings Leo Full Moon.

Before we get there however, we encounter mental Mercury sextile (the aspect of possibility) sensual Venus at 4:18 PM EST. This offers you the opportunity to fully express your deepest values within social situations or within intimate love partnerships. This may suggest a time to say what has previously been left unspoken. Depending on your circumstances, those words could be of connection or disconnection. The point is you are given the opportunity to make your position known.

Say what needs to be said to bring love forward. What direction or pathway do your deepest values call you to follow? Share what is true for you and expect to hear what is true for others.

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is exact at 22° Leo at 7:33 PM EST. Perhaps, it is those words that are finally said that allow for a shift to occur that will change the course of the coming months. This is a time of resetting your emotions, allow your focus to rest on playful or creative self-expression. You may not know the change that is brewing inside, but a shift happens.

The corresponding Solar Eclipse, which occurs on February 26th, will assist in resetting your more objective intentions for forward focus and movement. For now, pay attention to the area of your chart that holds 22° Leo, say what needs to be said, and allow your heart to pivot with creativity, and colorful self-expression.

OFFER HELP

Saturday February 11, 2017:

If possible, let yourself sleep late on Saturday morning. At 8:52 AM EST, the Moon enters practical, analytical Virgo. Following the powerfully changing energies of Friday, Saturday is the day to turn to practical, detail-oriented work.

I know, this is not what you wanted to hear, after all, it is the weekend. However, you will come to the end of the day feeling much better if you focus your time on practical effort. Go ahead, get caught up on house cleaning, laundry, or attend to those jobs and projects that you know must be done.

At 10:25 AM EST, the Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to optimistic Jupiter. This allows you to deeply enjoy whatever task you choose to focus your efforts on. If you need help, this is the day to ask for it; if you see others in need, this is the day to offer help. The more work that you accomplish or the more help that you provide, the better you will feel when you head to sleep at the end of the day.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:53 AM EST until she ventures into Virgo at 8:52 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

DREAM. WORK. UNDERSTAND.

Sunday, February 12, 2017:

If it’s possible, Sunday will be another good morning to sleep late. In the wee hours of the morning, there is an opposition between the Virgo Moon and imaginative elusive Neptune. Stay asleep to enjoy the dreams that Neptune brings.

The Moon continues through productive hard-working Virgo until mid-day on Monday.

Stick with some of the projects you may have started on Saturday. You are going to feel great at the end of this weekend with all the work you can finish. The house will be tidy and you may even have a few closets, or even the attic cleaned out!

Enjoy accomplishing your own tasks or get out and help your neighbors and friends.

At 6:02 PM EST, the Moon trine Pluto brings a flow of intensification to your conversations and connections. Powerful dynamics come to the table. It is important that we listen to each other, allow the words you hear from others to get through. Listen. You do not have to agree to hear and understand. Understanding someone else’s viewpoint does not have to weaken your own.

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

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

A BIT VAGUE AND A LITTLE EDGY

Monday, January 9, 2017:

You may begin the week feeling as though your head in the clouds as the Gemini Moon forms a square aspect with Neptune, the planet of bewilderment and confusion. It is best not to make firm decisions. Your mind may feel very busy but I wouldn’t trust its accuracy.

Allow yourself to be forgetful and vague; better yet, you can use this as an opportunity to focus your attention on poetry and music.

This evening watch your tongue and don’t take it personally if others are a bit cranky and out of sorts. The Gemini Moon forms a square aspect to Mars at 7:39 PM EST. Physical exercise may help move this energy or if you trust yourself and the other person involved, go ahead and engage in edgy, friendly banter. Make sure the friendly side stays firmly in mind. There is much to be said, watch the edge in your voice and make sure you are not misunderstood.

 

 

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED

Tuesday, January 10, 2017:

Tuesday sets the tone for the rest of the week. Anticipate feeling the need to reach for personal and possibly collective freedom. If you are restricted or restrained in some area of your life, you may now lose your ability to contain the demand for complete and utter change.

This is a highly revolutionary impulse. Look for breakthroughs and breakdowns. If you notice things falling apart, don’t try to control or pull them together again. Reach to the future; discover what can be created out of the remnants of what is left after the lightning strikes.

By looking at the cycle between the Sun and Uranus, we are brought back to early April of 2016. What began (what seed did you plant) at that time that was unusual or surprising to you on a personal level? By mid-October, it was crystal clear what that seed had grown into.

Now, it is time to show the truth to others and prepare for the next cycle to begin in mid-April, 2017. Allow yourself to see the future.

After a brief VOC*, the Moon enters Cancer at 5:40 PM EST. Regardless of the shakeup that may have occurred during the day, the evening is best spent quietly at home engaging in bonding behaviors with your loved ones; at the very least, cuddle with your cat. 😉

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:39 PM EST until she enters Cancer at 5:48 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.

POWER AND EXPANSION

Wednesday, January 11, 2017:

Wednesday morning may bring complications. At 2:14 AM EST, Mars, the planet of assertiveness and aggression, forms a sextile aspect to Pluto, the planet of destruction or empowerment.

This offers an opportunity to consider, with curiosity, issues regarding your use of power in situations where you are viewed as a mystic or an authority. The cycle of Mars and Pluto is one of great power or, possibly, great destruction.  Here, we have the power of direct action engaging with the power of transformation.

In October of 2016, (notice how that span of time also came up in Tuesday’s report, these situations are no doubt connected), these two came together planting a seed of determination in creating the powerful life that calls you fourth. Your explorations in this regard will lead you to take appropriate action in late February of 2017.

The Cancer Moon brings a mixed bag of emotional ups and downs throughout the day. At 11:42 PM EST, the Sun squares joyful, expansive Jupiter asking you to question where you see your life expanding. Consider where you felt optimistic or even enthusiastic in late September 2016. It is time now to push forward, finding new directions to enlarge that optimism for the future.

 

 

CANCER FULL MOON; ENGAGE LOVE

Thursday, January 12, 2017:

The nurturing Cancer Moon reaches the Full phase of her cycle at 6:34 AM EST. This is a very powerful Full Moon as she is positioned in a Full Grand Cross (a highly active and potentially stressful configuration) with Pluto, Uranus, and Jupiter.

Move mindfully through this day. Patience and kindness are required. This is not a day for rash decisions or impulsive actions.

Use the intensity of this powerful day with caution, cooperation, and deliberate thought. This is not a day to take any situations or circumstances lightly.

At 9:03 AM EST, Mercury, the planet that represents the way we think and perceive the world, leaves Sagittarius behind to enter Capricorn where he will remain until February 7th. During this time, you will be able to base your plans and decisions on a more practical understanding of your options.

It is probably best not to trust this practicality for another day or two as a conjunction between lovely Venus and delusional Neptune occurs at 4:53 PM EST. It is difficult to be practical when the heart is fully engaged in deep sensitivity and compassion.

At 7:08 PM EST, the Moon enters demonstrative Leo allowing playful energy to emerge. Worked with properly, you can enjoy an evening of playful sensitivity and engagement.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:34 AM EST until she enters Leo at 7:08 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.

 

 

REST – PLAY

Friday, January 13, 2017:

Friday offers a lovely day of rest and play. There are absolutely no major aspects to any planets, even the Leo Moon travels lazily through the heavens on Friday.

During a day with no aspects, the only thing you must consider is the energy the Moon provides. With the Moon in delightful and flashy Leo, you are given permission to express yourself authentically and appreciate others. This is a date to show up and allow yourself to be admired, even as you admire the authentic expression of those you encounter. We all want appreciation and recognition. For Friday, seek opportunities to offer that to others and to accept it for yourself.

Enjoy a lovely night. This is a great evening to go into the world to engage in dramatic and creative activities. Go to the theater, go out dancing, join with friends in any and all playful activities. Release stress through play.

PLAY – REST

Saturday, January 14, 2017:

Saturday offers you a morning with more delightful energy for connections and playful interactions. Get up early and go out for brunch with friends. The delightful Leo Moon makes lovely aspects with exciting Uranus, expansive Jupiter, and stabilizing Saturn throughout the morning. Following her positive contact with mature Saturn at 10:17 AM EST, the generous Leo Moon is VOC* until she enters Virgo at 10:53 PM EST.

This is not a great day to go shopping, accomplish projects, or make plans. It is best utilized for rest and laid back, easy socializing.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:17 AM EST until she enters for go at 10:53 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.

 

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT TURNS TO FLOW

Sunday, January 15, 2017:

On Sunday, you can expect to wake to a day that initially feels practical and grounded. You sense that you can accomplish a great deal of efficient tasks and projects. Don’t delay! Get started on those tasks and projects as early as possible.

At 5:08 PM EST, when the detail oriented Virgo Moon opposes elusive Neptune all practicality goes out the window as you are faced with confusion and vague discomfort. Don’t fight against it, allow yourself to go with the flow. Confusion can become inspirational whimsy. Vague discomfort can be transformed into empathy and sensitivity.

At 10:58 PM EST, the Moon opposes lovely Venus in Pisces allowing you to rest into beauty, sensitivity, and love. If you’re with a partner, engage in your favorite bonding behaviors. If you are alone, draw yourself a bubble bath and allow yourself to enter a space of transcendence and gentle beauty.
