Hang onto your hat!

This is another powerful week as the intensity and emotional temperature shifts as impulsive Mars and the all-powerful Sun leave the sensitive waters of Cancer behind to enter the hot furnace of Leo!

Over the course of the week, Mars and the Sun form challenging square aspects to Uranus, the planet of shocking and revolutionary change.

This is a week of potential wild energies and sudden illuminations. What will be revealed?

Sunday also brings a Leo New Moon, this is a time to plant a seed for enlivening your life with playful generosity and creative self-expression.

All of the VOC* Moon times happen in the wee hours of the mornings, therefore, they will have little, if any, impact. 🙂

 

 


Are you up against a difficult decision, or are you questioning your current life, love, or career direction?

An astrological consultation with an open-hearted, competent astrologer will clearly show you the larger picture at play, the universal directional path.

I am taking new clients again and would love to meet with you.

 

 

MAINTAIN CALM

Monday, July 17, 2017:

By the time we awake on Monday morning, the Moon is in steadfast, peace-loving Taurus.

At 10:33 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and value, forms a square aspect to mystical, dreamy Neptune. When Venus and Neptune come together, regardless of the aspect formed, you are likely to feel dreamy with a lack of focus and ordinary boundaries lose their edge. This can be a romantic and compassionate connection.

The cycle between Venus and Neptune began in the second week of January 2017. What did you begin at that time that now requires you to take a step forward in order for the dream to come into full view by late September? It is unlikely that you will have much time to linger in that inspired romantic space.

In the background, a problematic square aspect between Mars and Uranus has been building, coming to full completion at 9:36 PM EDT. This is an extremely explosive and unpredictable connection.

The cycle between Mars and Uranus which began in late February 2017, is a cycle of defiant action or aggressive independence. Expect the unexpected and anticipate that it will bring with anger, frustration, and even impulsive rage.

Don’t neglect your meditation practice and do what needs to be done to remain an example of calm and comfort to those around you.

 

GRATITUDE AND JOY

Tuesday, July 18, 2017:

Any damage that occured on Monday should be able to be smoothed over when assertive Mars forms a smooth, flowing trine aspect to Chiron, the planet of healing at 9:22 AM EDT. Look for unanticipated courage to do what must be done to move beyond an unhealed wound or source of shame.

The day only gets better from there. Perhaps, you are able to see the difficulties of Monday as necessary for the shift that needed to occur.

At 4:08 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, forms a flowing trine aspect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and awareness. This opens your mind to a renewed sense of gratitude and generosity. With the Moon in Taurus, we delight in deep reverence for our lives and are able to fully embrace simple pleasures and joy.

 

MAKING FUTURE PLANS

Wednesday, July 19, 2017:

Ionian Dancing Girl by John William Godward via Wiki Commons

By the time you wake up on Wednesday morning, the Moon will no longer be in reliable, patient Taurus, as she enters inquisitive Gemini at 3:31 AM EDT. Over the next few days, while the Moon is in Gemini, you are able to articulate your feelings, perhaps, at the expense of actually feeling them.

Adding to the theme of communication, Mercury, the planet of the perceptive mind, forms a flowing trine aspect to stabilizing Saturn at 3:15 PM EDT. Whatever you need to say, you will find an attentive ear and your ability to hear what is spoken gains clarity.

Trust that this is a good time to say what must be said and that you will find the right words and others will listen. This is a perfect time for serious conversations at work or in personal situations. This is also a great afternoon for joining with others to create future plans.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for a very brief period of time while you sleep, from 2:12 AM EDT until 3:31 AM EDT when she enters Gemini. 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.

 

AMP UP THE FIRE

Thursday, July 20, 2017:

At 8:19 AM EDT, assertive Mars joins with Mercury and enters playful exuberant Leo. Mars, the planet of action, has not enjoyed his stay in tender, domestic Cancer where he has been since June 4th. He is delighted to leave the element of emotional Water behind to enter his natural element of active Fire.

We are about to arrive at a much more dynamic part of Summer as the Sun moves into Leo before the end of the week. The height of beautiful Summer (in the Northern Hemisphere) is upon us!

Keep an eye on the underlying developments in our culture as the Sun forms a difficult square aspect to Uranus, the astrological wild card at 8:25 PM EDT! Expect the unexpected. If you have planets between 26 and 30 degrees of any of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), you can expect some intense excitement or upheaval in your personal life. None of us will escape the intensity of this day, regardless.

Do what you can to maintain stability and calm for yourself and those around you. Meditation, self-care, and kindnesses are key.

 

JUST A BIT OF NOSTALGIA

Friday, July 21, 2017:

By daybreak on Friday, the Moon has moved into intuitive, moody Cancer. The emotional restlessness of the past few days gives way to a sense of longing for home, family, and domestic safety.

While the Moon is in Cancer, we can become quite nostalgic. You may find yourself taking a trip down memory lane, feeling homesick, or longingly remembering the past. Allow yourself a bit of this sentimentality but don’t get stuck there. Your life exists in the here and now and in all that you create for the future.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for a very brief period of time while you sleep, from 1:41 AM EDT until she enters Cancer at 4:10 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.

DEEP SUMMER – SUN ARRIVES IN LEO!

Saturday, July 22, 2017:

Saturday begins with a cranky Cancer Moon feeling pushed against the wall as she opposes coercive Pluto at 8:50 AM EDT. Please remember that Moon transits pass quickly if you do not engage them with your actions. Sleep late and offer kindness in whatever form is best suited to yourself and those around you. Spending the morning on your own may be your best bet.

Everything changes when the full illumination of the powerful Sun pushes forward into its own sign of Leo at 11:15 AM EDT. As the self-protective energy of Cancer gives way to the extravagant, playful, open-heart generosity of Leo, observe the shift in yourself and others.

During the Sun’s time in Leo (until August 22 when the Sun will enter Virgo), you will be called toward grand gestures and want to be acknowledged for the most unique expressions of your personality. This is the time of year to shine, to show your best side in all things; generosity, performance, and playfulness summon you forward. Enjoy.

                                                                                                        

LEO NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED OF GENEROSITY AND JOY

Sunday, July 23, 2017:

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, the Moon follows the Sun into creative, proud Leo. With six of the ten major planetary bodies in Fire signs, you will surely feel the heat!

At 5:45 AM EDT, we come to the beginning of a new lunar cycle. The New Moon occurs at 0° Leo. This is the time to plant a seed of creativity, generosity, and full self-expression. Wait and perform your new moon ritual on Monday or Tuesday.

For your Leo New Moon Ritual, set an intention regarding fun, empowerment, and play. This is the perfect time to begin to create an ideal vision of the highest self-expression that calls you forward.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds 0° Leo, it will help you clarify where to direct your dramatic vitality. If you don’t have that information, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that is calling for powerful expression.

Please don’t neglect this simple New Moon Ritual. Take a moment to write down what changes you wish to bring to this area of your life.

Have two candles available for the ritual and light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are in this moment. Then light the second candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, and when you light the second, focus on drawing to you what you are choosing to create as you bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day and at the Full Moon in two weeks, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created. Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones. It is more powerful than you may imagine.

Assertive Mars joins with both the Sun and Moon at this time making sure the

Leo the Lion is not in hibernation but in full, roaring glory! Motivation is high and you are unlikely to let anything stand in the way of your desires. Pay attention to kindness and don’t allow assertiveness to enter the realm of arrogance or anger.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for a very brief period of time while you sleep, from 2:05 AM EDT until she enters Leo 4:34 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.

 

 

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

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

 

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: June 5, 2017 through June 11, 2017

This is a significant week as both Mercury and Venus change signs, each entering a sign they rule, and Jupiter changes direction!

LONGING FOR DEEP CONNECTION

Monday, June 5, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

SHIFTING SANDS

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

A LONG DAY LEADS TO POSSIBLE ADVENTURE

Wednesday, June 7, 2017:

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

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

Enjoy the delightful energies available.

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

ENJOY THE ROSE COLORED GLASSES

Thursday, June 8, 2017:

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

Remember: all work and no play…

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

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

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

 

 

SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON – ENTHUSIASM & EXPLORATION

Friday, June 9, 2017:

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

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

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

WEEKEND CHORES

Saturday, June 10, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

SHARED RESPONSIBILITIES

Sunday, June 11, 2017:

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

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

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

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

Sweet dreams. Another week approaches.

DON’T TAKE THE BAIT

Monday, May 22, 2017:

Monday will likely be a high-energy day in all the best and most challenging ways possible. All aspects are aspects of the transiting Aries Moon. Keep in mind that Moon aspects refer to quick moving situations and their impact will not last, except through our response to them.

The Moon is in fiercely courageous Aries heightening your impulsiveness, assertiveness, and even your libido!

At 10:10 AM EDT, when the Moon joins with Venus, you know what you desire and are willing to take any risk for love.

At 2:44 PM EDT, you may encounter resistance in the form of power struggles, anger, or obsessive thoughts bringing up issues that have been previously hidden. Don’t take the bait. Remain self-contained and it will all look far more manageable by Tuesday following the Moon’s entrance into steadfast calm Taurus.

Everyone may encounter a sense of being a bit too hot under the collar, but for all of us our bark may be bigger than our bite.

 

 

FOCUS ON SELF CARE

Tuesday, May 23, 2017:

After the ruckus and turmoil of Monday, we are soothed by the Moon’s entrance into Taurus at 8:33 AM EDT. This is a good day to pay attention to the ways in which you connect with the pleasures of your senses. Seek contentment, indulgence, comfort, and beauty.

Keep in mind that we are in the Dark Phase of the Moon, only a few days from the Gemini New Moon on Thursday. This suggests a time of inward contemplation, a time to find those things that bring contentment and satisfaction on a deeply personal level.

Wednesday will bring much the same. Find as much time as possible to focus on self-care.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:00 AM EDT until she enters Taurus at 8:33 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.

 

 

INNER REFLECTION

Wednesday, May 24, 2017:

Helen by Edward Poynter via SightsWithin

Wednesday should be a great day to channel the dependable, level-headed Taurus Moon into constructive effort as she forms a powerful trine aspect to compelling powerful Pluto at 3:08 PM EDT. The gift of this competent and vigorous energy will remain with you throughout the day.

Keep in mind that with the Moon VOC* Wednesday afternoon, it is a time to work on already established projects, not a time to start anything new. Also, we are still in the Dark Phase of the Moon, and it is best to remain on the hushed unobtrusive side in all things. Inner reflection could bring deep self-understanding.

Enjoy a quiet evening with good food, loving connection, a hot bath, and a massage (if you can get one – or give one).

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:08 PM EDT until she enters Gemini on Thursday morning at 8:16 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.

 

 

GEMINI NEW MOON – POWERFUL CONVERSATIONS

Thursday, May 25, 2017:

Thursday is a powerhouse of a day; the day that defines the entire week.

At 12:21 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of love, money, and all that we hold most dear, forms a challenging square aspect to Pluto, the planet of destruction and transformation. This brings us to the First Quarter Square of a cycle that began in late November 2016. This is a cycle empowering your values, your love relationships, and your connection to your resources.

What began for you in November? Did you begin a new engagement with love, money, your deep values, or beauty? Think back to that time, determine what you began in this arena and take a specific action to bring it forward. The full illumination of the cycle will be clear on August 15th, 2017.

This square aspect between Venus and Pluto can bring relationship issues to a crisis point where change must occur. If someone you love brings a concern to the table on Thursday, do your best to practice deep listening and resist unconscious reactions. Keep your heart and mind open to the fact that change does not have to destroy our relationships or our prosperity, it can deeply and grandly empower us as we move forward.

At 8:16 AM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini to join the Gemini Sun for the New Moon at 3:45 PM EDT. Prepare for your New Moon ritual but give it a day or so before you perform the ritual. It is best to wait for the Moon to gain a bit of distance from the Sun.

The Gemini New Moon is planting a seed of communication or seed of gathering information. Form your aspirations with this in mind.

If you begin a new significant conversation on Thursday. pay attention to how that conversation engages your thinking and how the relationship grows over the coming month.

For your Gemini New Moon ritual, set an intention regarding curiosity, the expansion of knowledge, and your ability to communicate what you understand. This is the perfect time to start a friendship or a conversation. Perhaps, you can arrange the time and space to begin an important conversation.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds 4° Gemini, it will help you clarify where to direct your intellectual curiosity. If you don’t have that information, simply go with your instinct of what area of your life learning wants to grow in intellectual understanding.

Please don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple, take a moment to write down what ideas or learning you wish to begin, create, or increase in this upcoming cycle.

Have two candles available for the ritual; light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are in this moment. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, when you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are choosing to create as you bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day and at the Full Moon in two weeks, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Gemini New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of intellect, inquisitiveness, enthusiasm, and new conversations. Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:08 PM EDT on Wednesday until she enters Gemini on Tuesday at 8:16 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.

 

 

APOLOGIZE, IF NECESSARY

Friday, May 26, 2017:

On Friday, you can let all the complexities of Thursday settle into your system; much about this day will be about assimilation and moving forward with your intentions. Friday is a considerably less complex day, even with the Moon still in active, curious, talkative Gemini.

The morning begins with the chatty Gemini Moon forming a challenging square to ethereal Neptune at 6:25 AM EDT. This could suggest misunderstandings or confusion at the breakfast table and a lack of clarity on how to proceed into the day.

At 3:50 PM EDT, as the Moon sextiles lovely Venus, you may find yourself speaking or hearing words of appreciation and love. Enjoy connecting. Take action to move closer to your desires in relationship, love, and finances.

At 10:20 PM EDT, as the Moon conjuncts assertive Mars, you may find that you have spoken more than you intended to or were not as diplomatic as you could have been with your words. If you need to apologize, do so before sleep. With awareness and self-responsibility, the issue will pass quickly, as Moon transits do. The apology will help.

Alleluia by Thomas Cooper Gotch via SightsWithin

 

NURTURE FAMILY AND HEARTH

Saturday, May 27, 2017:

The Moon begins Saturday morning VOC*, still in Gemini but moves into domestic Cancer at 7:25 AM EDT. As we set aside the quick, sometimes frenetic energy of Gemini, we enter into a weekend with the focus on family, nurturance, and deep emotional connection. This is an astrologically quiet day which leaves us to engage fully in what the Cancer Moon offers.

As the Moon moves through the zodiac, it sets the emotional tone of our days.

With the Moon in family-oriented Cancer, you will want to engage in maternal activities revolving around home and family. You may feel sentimental and even absorbed in memories of the past. Your emotions are heightened, you may experience significant mood swings, and want to retreat to the safety of home and a private environment. This is a time of sensitivity; a time to seek comfort by sticking with what is familiar. Enjoy comfort foods, take a long hot bath and spend time with children or the elderly engaging in activities that nurture the heart.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:19 AM EDT until she enters Cancer at 7:25 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.

 

 

ENGAGE DEVOTION – SPREAD LOVE

Sunday, May 28, 2017:

Sunday begins with Mercury, the planet that represents our thinking and communication, forming a lovely sextile aspect to Neptune, the planet of compassion and devotion.

On March 4, 2017, when Mercury and Neptune joined together in Pisces, did you start or increase your meditation practice or did your thinking turn in a new direction of transcendence? This was the beginning of a year-long cycle of immersing your mind in imagination, compassion, or the mystical.

Sunday provides an opportunity to explore ways to increase your view of the world from a mystic, inclusive, and inspired perspective.  Engage fully in prayer or meditation.

The Moon continues through tender Cancer asking that you stay close to home, family, and loved ones. Mid-afternoon, there could be power and control issues, as the Moon opposes Pluto at 2:05 PM EDT. Again, the quick moving Moon transits give us the opportunity to see the issues for future consideration and learning. However, do not respond to any bait given. Allow the issues to roll past without unconscious engagement.

Spread love.
