Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 18, 2017 through September 24, 2017

 

“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 challenge is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”

ELATION AND BEAUTY

Monday, September 18, 2017:

How did you sleep last night? Shortly after midnight, Venus formed a lovely, flowing trine aspect to Uranus, the planet of unexpected change, excitement, and (sometimes) anxiety.

In early June, the cycle began between Venus and Uranus. When these two planets come together, it is a time to begin something new around love, deep personal values, beauty, money, or resources. Whatever you began in early June related to those qualities, probably brought a challenge in late August. What action did you take at that time to develop those values?

Now, the gifts of your choices are clear and are paying valuable dividends. Full illumination of this cycle comes in early November. This is a lovely aspect; enjoy the excitement and a view of beauty and loveliness to come.

Also, while you slept, the Moon entered Virgo, where she will remain until Wednesday morning. While the Moon is in Virgo, you will be able to do detailed work with competent efficiency.

On Monday afternoon, the Moon makes contact with both Mars and Mercury bringing you courage, strength, and purposeful direction. You can get important work accomplished at this time.

As the Moon opposes Neptune at 10:47 PM EDT, you are able to sleep with the awareness of your connection to the universe and enjoy the beautiful space of dreamland.

 

INWARD ATTENTION

Tuesday, September 19, 2017:

Keep in mind on Tuesday that we are in the dark phase of the Moon, this is a quiet time of inward attention. We will reach the Virgo New Moon at 1:30 AM EDT on Wednesday. Don’t rush your New Moon ritual, you will want to do that on Wednesday or even Thursday. I will post more details in the days ahead.

Tuesday, the Moon continues through productive, orderly Virgo keeping you focused on the details of the work you are engaged in.

Mid-afternoon, you may experience a slump as the Moon forms a challenging square aspect to restrictive Saturn at 3:11 PM EDT. It will soon pass.

At 9:15 PM EDT, Venus who has enjoyed her time in playful, expressive Leo since mid-June, now joins with the Sun, Mercury, and Mars in modest, unassuming Virgo.

The Sun only has a few more days in Virgo, so take advantage of these few days to work out detailed plans and systems that will support your path forward. Carefully consider the seeds you want to plant at the upcoming Virgo New Moon.

 

SELF-CARE & KINDNESS

Girl in Red with Flowers by Jozsef Rippl-Ronai via Wiki Media

Wednesday, September 20, 2017:

The New Moon at 27 degrees Virgo occurred at 1:30 AM EDT, beginning a New Lunar Cycle, the first since the big Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

Be aware that the purpose of critical or compulsive thinking at this time reflects the need to release something you have recently become attached to.

This is the time to take a new step toward kindness and service. Yes, you may notice a desire to clear space in your closets and cupboards but remember that the space that truly needs to be cleared out is the space in your mind and heart that is too full or cluttered. When you have cleared that space, you can fill it with a new focus to support the growth of yourself and others in self-care. The world is glutted with much stress that is heavy for each of us to carry.

Plant a seed of commitment; commit to building a platform of kindness and support for others and self-care for yourself. Ask yourself: how can you help your neighbors and friends?

At 6:06 AM EDT, the Moon enters cooperative, diplomatic Libra. You find it easier to connect to others and truly see the unique contribution they have to offer the world.  Make it a point to build each other up on Wednesday.

The Virgo Moon was VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) while you slept. She enters Libra at 6:06 AM EDT.

 

MAKE THINGS NICE

Thursday, September 21, 2017:

Whatever sign the Moon is in on any given day sets the emotional tone for that day. With the Moon in diplomatic Libra on Thursday, we can anticipate a desire to ‘make things nice’ for all involved. However, the afternoon brings a difficult square aspect from the Moon to destructive Pluto (exact at 1:00 PM EDT).

Meditate, go for a long walk, and consider the options you have regarding any relationship issues you are working through.

Other than that brief glitch, this is a day where you will want to engage in social interactions. It is easier than usual to see the world from another’s perspective. Join with a trusted partner in environments that are aesthetically pleasing, bounce ideas off each other, enjoy art and cultural surroundings. Show kindness in everything you do and bring a smile and a good word to everyone you meet.

 

SUN ENTERS LIBRA – REFINEMENT AND BEAUTY

Friday, September 22, 2017:

Friday begins with the Moon still in graceful, charming Libra. At 9:05 AM EDT, she opposes Uranus, you can expect a surprise, excitement, or anxiety to shift the energy of the morning.

At 1:39 PM EDT, the Moon enters deeply passionate Scorpio, bringing intensity and deep introspection to the next few days.

At 2:01 PM EDT, mental Mercury forms a lovely, powerful trine aspect to Pluto. This allows your words to hit their mark. Go ahead and ask what needs to be asked and say what needs to be said. If you are a writer, allow compelling words to flow easily and weave their magic throughout this day.

At 4:01 PM EDT, the Sun shifts from Virgo into Libra, changing the focus of attention from service and perfection to social charm, harmony, and diplomatic endeavors. Over the coming month, you will want to deepen your romantic connections and create beauty and pleasure in your environment. On Friday evening, bring home flowers, arrange them beautifully and prepare to encourage the growth of all beauty in your life.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:05 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 1:39 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.

DEEPLY INTENSE CONNECTIONS 

Saturday, September 23, 2017:

Saturday is about adjusting to the change in the Sun sign. With the Sun now in Libra, you may notice that it is more of a challenge than normal to take your own needs into consideration. The needs of others seems more important as you are able to see the world from the perspective of others. Libra connects us deeply; it is a good time to remember that your relationships provide you with a powerful mirror; your intimate partners and close friends are powerful teachers showing you where you need further personal work.

The focus now is on balance, on finding how to develop internal harmony through love or the creation of beauty and art. It may be more difficult to make clear choices during this time as you see both sides to every issue and situation. You are conscious of wanting to be loved and not wanting to rock the boat. Use this month to develop something of beauty and to creating balance in all your partnerships.

With the Moon in Scorpio throughout the weekend, there’s a depth of intensity in all your connections. You will want to relate closely, even compulsively with others. Making love this weekend will touch you on a powerful soul level. Connect with depth and intensity; open your heart.

 

REST, CONTEMPLATE, MEDITATE

Sunday, September 24, 2017:

It is important to know that the Moon is VOC* all day on Sunday. VOC* (Void of Course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect the Moon makes in one sign until it enters the next sign. This is a neutral time when whatever occurs will have little or no impact on the future of the issue involved. Therefore, this is a good time to rest, contemplate, and recuperate from your busy life. These are bad times to make purchases, you will not use the item as you may expect. These times can also be used to do things that you are hoping will have little impact. For instance, if you have a tough communication that you know you need to deliver but are hoping for minimal reaction… tell them today or at another VOC* Moon. Always file your taxes during VOC* in preparation to NOT be audited. 😉  Because the Moon changes sign every 2+ days, we have these periods very regularly, they can last anywhere from a few minutes to a full 24+ hours.

At 3:49 PM EDT, Mars forms a stressful opposition to Neptune, asking that you look clearly at your internal insecurities and worries. Be aware of your level of integrity and pay attention to any intuitive red flags that may arise regarding other people or situations that you encounter. Meditation is called for… and of course… kindness.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:33 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius just after midnight. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

AN ORIGINAL VIEW

Monday, July 24, 2017:

A very interesting Monday follows on the heels of Sunday’s powerful Leo New Moon. Go back and check Sunday’s post for suggestions on performing a New Moon ritual. You still have time to do the ritual anytime on Monday.

Along with the brand new, expressive Leo Moon, Monday offers two significant transits. At 10:53 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, goes head-to-head with Saturn, the planet of responsibility, maturity, and limitations. The end of October of 2016 began this Venus and Saturn cycle of stabilizing personal values that now comes to full illumination.

Pay attention to how you form structures and boundaries in your love relationships and your management of money and resources. This may not be easy. If there is a struggle, you know it is time to shift your perspective. If you are not acting with integrity and are not based in reality, this will be a wakeup call that maybe likely unpleasant.

However, it may be easy to let that difficulty go under the radar if the other transit of the day impacts your chart more strongly.

At 12:32 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our thinking and communicating mind, forms a lovely trine aspect to eccentric Uranus. This is a simple and powerful demand. Wake up!

Expect unexpected news, communications, or epiphanies that are tied in to the relationship resources focus of the Saturn transit. These two transits will work together.  You may feel great anxiety or great excitement. Keep your ears and eyes open and be ready to experience a highly original view.

 

 

ANALYTICAL PRECISION TAKES A STAND

Tuesday, July 25, 2017:

By the time you are up and moving on Tuesday, the Moon has entered industrious, orderly Virgo. As long as you have work to do or a project at hand, it will be a productive and efficient day from the start.

As we are adjusting to Mars and the Sun being in creative, expressive Leo, Mercury leaves Leo behind to enter into modest Virgo. Mercury is very much at home in Virgo and happy to leave the heat of Leo for the cool calm of this Mutable Earth sign.

In Virgo, Mercury reminds us that the Sun is never very far from Mercury and will not remain in the dramatic sign of Leo for too long. Summertime certainly passes quickly and the Sun will follow into Virgo in less than four weeks. It is important to enjoy the heat, vitality, and great, playful energies while they are available.

Mercury, the planet of our thinking and communications, leaves drama behind in Leo and becomes more practical and concerned with others in Virgo. Mercury will remain in this analytical sign until he enters Libra at the end of September. Take advantage of this time to get precise, efficient work done. This is perfect for getting the nitpicky, detailed paperwork done that you have not wanted to complete.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for a very brief period of time from 5:22 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 6:33 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.

 

 

VITALITY AND STRENGTH

Wednesday, July 26, 2017:

Campanil Ascendiendo by Eugenio Cruz Vargas via Wiki Commons

Wednesday is a powerful day! The day begins with a razor sharp ability to use our power in an efficient manner as the Moon forms a beautiful trine aspect to powerful Pluto at 1:27 PM EDT.

At 8:50 PM EDT, when the Moon forms of challenging square to Saturn, we may wonder if we pushed too hard and may have the tendency to be overly critical.

However, the real action builds throughout the day to its climax at 8:56 PM EDT with a conjunction from the all-powerful Sun to assertive Mars. This is the beginning of a one-year cycle of illumination of strength, self-determination, and physical energy. You can think of this as similar to a New Moon, involving the Sun and Mars rather than the Sun and Moon. Think of it as the time to plant a seed of personal strength and perseverance toward a long-held goal.

Because the Sun and Mars are in Leo, you will want to incorporate self-expression or leadership as a part of this goal. If you have personal planets (your Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars) or your Ascendant or Mid-Heaven between 2° and 6° of any fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius), you will probably feel a great abundance of internal or physical energy. Find a way to use it with kindness.

If you notice yourself feeling frustration or anger, go out for a run or move direct physical energy through your body in some powerful manner. Sexual expression is a great use of this vital strength. Learning to manage your inner warrior or goddess without selfishness is essential at this time.

 

 

SOOTHE THOSE RUFFLED FEATHERS

Thursday, July 27, 2017:

The early morning hours may feel a bit unsettled on Thursday. Take it in stride without question. At 11:36 AM EDT, the Moon enters graceful Libra and directs our attention to diplomatic cooperation and social decorum. We feel more tolerant of others and more interested in presenting ourselves in a more amicable, sympathetic light.

Late Thursday evening, the gentle, cordial Libra Moon forms soothing sextile aspects to both the Leo Sun and Mars and encourages the smoothing of any ruffled feathers that may have occurred on Wednesday. Allow yourself to be soothed, calmed, and softened. There is no reason to carry a grudge and it would be difficult to do so under this influence.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:31 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 11:36 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.

 

 

GO BENEATH THE SURFACE

Friday, July 28, 2017:

The Moon continues through harmonious, thoughtful Libra throughout the day on Friday. Your attention is on creating beauty, balance, and cooperation. This will work out well for most of the day.

However, at 6:35 PM EDT, the Libra Moon joins with idealistic Jupiter. With this transit, you may be so busy trying to make things look good on the outside that you hardly notice what is going on beneath the surface.

Take the time to look beneath the carpet and to honestly see what is hidden below. Is your life as you present it? Or are you, like so many, trying to make everything look pretty in the eyes of other people? Think about how easy it is to make your life look beautiful without acknowledging the everyday ups and downs.

At 8:38 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a challenging square to Pluto, get real with yourself and show your deepest vulnerabilities to those you love. Don’t plaster those vulnerabilities all over Facebook but do get real with yourself and those who need to truly know you. <3

ENDING ON A NOTE OF DEEP CONNECTION

Saturday, July 29, 2017:

All in all, you can expect a pleasant day on Saturday as the Moon continues through social, romantic Libra. The Libra Moon is encouraging you to create beauty and express love and appreciation in all your close friendships and intimate partnerships.

At 4:25 PM EDT, the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to Venus encouraging feelings and expressions of love, abundance, and gratitude.

However, an hour later, you may need to take a break and spend some time alone. At 5:30 PM EDT, the graceful Moon forms a difficult opposition to unsettling Uranus. Pay attention to how you express yourself and the words that you use. Give a lot of slack to what others may say or how they say it.

You may say something you didn’t mean to say and upset the equilibrium of the day or maybe someone says something to you with the same effect. Apologize or accept the other person’s apology and move on. Don’t get stuck in anger or get your back up against the wall. Remember, this is a Moon transit and will pass quickly if you don’t engage with it.

At 8:23 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio asking that our relationships go to a deeper, more intense, profound, and emotional level. This is an excellent night to go very deep with a highly trusted loved one, express your vulnerabilities, and hold your heart open to those that are closest to you.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:30 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 8:23 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.

 

 

A SPARK OF CURIOSITY AND A SERIOUS DECISION

Sunday, July 30, 2017:

Sunday begins with a delightful sextile aspect from relationship-oriented Venus to unconventional Uranus. When Venus and Uranus began their cycle at the very beginning of June, their cycle’s purpose was to learn how to incorporate individuality and bring your own unique stamp to intimate relationships and resources. At the sextile aspect on Sunday, pay attention to ideas and conversations that spark curiosity and highlight possibilities in this direction.

Midmorning will bring a challenging square aspect from the introspective Scorpio Moon to the expressive Leo Sun and Mars. Something feels uncomfortable and you need to take an action or make a decision that will direct your path forward.

Take your time in the considerations and make these decisions consciously and carefully. Consider the seed you planted at the New Moon on July 23rd; do what must be done now to assist in the healthy growth of that aspiration.

The day ends on a sensitive note as the Moon forms a sweet, romantic trine aspect to dreamy Neptune at 11:30 PM EDT. Sleep uninterrupted and travel in your dreams.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: December 19, 2016 through December 25, 2016

You can anticipate a busy week ahead. Of course, you don’t need astrology to tell you that! If you celebrate any of the holidays surrounding this winter season, you will likely have a very long to-do list that you are working hard to manage.

Sen Ljubezni by Ivan Grohar via Wiki Commons

Sen Ljubezni by Ivan Grohar via Wiki Commons

Monday brings us to the beginning of another three-week Mercury retrograde. Get to work right away making a list of everything that has been left undone over the past few months. Over the next three weeks, you can get a lot accomplished if you stick to working from that list!

Mars changes sign on Monday moving from unique, eccentric Aquarius into mystical, sensitive Pisces. Remember, that Mars represents your ability to take action. Mars is not delighted to be in Pisces, although artists, poets, and mystics can move forward delightfully at this time.

On Wednesday, we come to the Winter Solstice, when the Sun leaves the fun of Sagittarius behind to enter the serious, cautious ground of Capricorn.

The Winter Solstice, which occurs when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun, lasts only an instant in time (December 21, 2016 at 5:44 AM EST), and occurs on the shortest day and longest night of the year. The Sun’s daily maximum position in the sky is at the lowest point in the year at this time as well. The seasonal significance of the Winter Solstice is in the reversal of the gradual lengthening of nights and shortening of days. The light will return.

 

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

An astrological consultation with Astrolore or Jennie will clearly show you the larger picture at play, the universal directional path.

We are both taking new clients and would love to meet with you.

 

 

4 Simple Steps to Managing Mercury Retrograde!

When Mercury turns retrograde, everywhere I turn someone will ask (with trepidation and a touch of fear in their eyes) is Mercury turning retrograde AGAIN??

There is so much unnecessary fear and misinformation around Mercury’s retrograde cycles.

I am going to keep these instructions very simple!

  1. Don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned!

I know that it is easier said than done, but please forget all the terrible things you have heard about Mercury retrograde! There are no astrological conditions that we need to block from ourselves in fear! We simply need to pay attention to the best use of certain times and Mercury retrograde is one of them.

I honestly LOVE Mercury’s retrograde cycle! I feel like I can finally catch up with all the things that have been left undone since the last retrograde cycle!

After years of watching and working with Mercury’s retrograde cycles, I have come to love these brief periods scattered throughout the year. I feel that they are a gift. We simply must know how to use them!

  1. Get a notebook and a pen – Make a list of everything that you have begun but NOT completed in the past few months.

Start with a clean sheet of paper, quiet your mind, and think back over the past few months. On September 22, 2016, Mercury turned direct at 14° Virgo. Since then, he has zipped along through Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and into Capricorn at 15° where he is now turning retrograde.

Think about what you have been doing since late September. Look through your calendar, your notebooks, your bills, wherever you will find reminders of everything that you have been thinking about and working on since then. Now, carefully make a list of all the things that you have begun but not completed. Dig deep; there are probably more things than you are aware of.

What about that appointment you have been meaning to make? The project that you tucked into a drawer because you couldn’t find the time to complete it? Moreover, we all have communications that have fallen through the cracks, unanswered emails, texts, and phone calls!

  1. Get to work! Accomplish what is on this list! Only what is on this list!

Once you have the list made up, it is easy to follow the perfect plan for approximately the next three weeks (Mercury turns direct once again on January 8, 2017).

Get to work, accomplish the things on this list; nothing more, nothing less. That is the whole trick of dealing with Mercury retrograde. Stick with this list!

Our lives are so busy; we zip from one project to another, from one communication to another. We never seem to have the time to slow down and carefully complete the tasks that we have begun.

Mercury retrograde brings us a gift of time to wrap up all those loose ends!

  1. Don’t be tempted to start new projects, begin new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs!

This is the time for clean up only. Don’t move forward until Mercury turns direct.

If you follow these simple steps, you will be amazed at how much you can accomplish during these periods!

Good Luck and Get to Work!

 

 

WORKING WITH MERCURY RETROGRADE

Monday, December 19, 2016:

In the wee hours of Monday morning, Mars, the planet that represents assertive action, enters Pisces, the most passive of the signs. Mars will remain in Pisces until January 27th.  During this time, your usual self-confidence and ability to take action may feel that it has been turned upside down. Rather than courageously pushing forward, you may find yourself slowing down, stepping back and attempting to ‘feel’ your way forward. Pay attention to your dreams and intuitions.

At 5:55 AM EST, Mercury stations retrograde at 15° Capricorn; between the softening of your assertiveness (Mars in Pisces) and the somewhat skewed logical thinking of Mercury retrograde, you may feel a bit lost as you adapt to this new territory. Mercury will remain retrograde until January 8th.

The Moon in Virgo supports practical considerations and encourages you to improve your circumstances by reaching for your potential.

4 Simple Steps to Managing Mercury Retrograde!

  1. Don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned!
  2. Get a notebook and a pen. Make a list of everything that you have begun but NOT completed in the past few months.
  3. Get to work! Accomplish what is on this list! Only what is on this list!
  4. Don’t be tempted to start new projects, begin new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs!

Mercury retrograde brings us the gift of time to wrap up loose ends!

 

PARADOX AND COMPLEXITY

Tuesday, December 20, 2016:

On Tuesday, you will continue adjusting to the more passive nature of Mars in Pisces and the more inward mental work of Mercury retrograde. Both of these require considerable adjustment. Take time to absorb and understand the change and the challenge. Slow down your actions and your thinking.

At 8:56 PM EST, the Virgo Moon squares the Sagittarius Sun (Third Quarter Square) suggesting that your internal and external realities seem to be working against each other. On one hand, you may be feeling free and idealistic, and yet, somewhat critical and nitpicky. It is important that you allow contradictions and paradox to exist side-by-side without trying to change either side of the equation.

At 9:39 PM EST, the Moon enters Libra, settling your expectations as you seek equanimity, calm, and a diplomatic sense of your connection to others.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:56 PM EST until she enters Libra at 9:39 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.

 

SUN ENTERS CAPRICORN – SERIOUSNESS & INTEGRITY

The Innocent Swan by Elizabeth Sonrel via Wiki Commons

The Innocent Swan by Elizabeth Sonrel via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, December 21, 2016:

The Sun’s movement into Capricorn heralds the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the Winter Solstice marks the longest night and shortest day of the year. We encounter late dawn and early sunsets. Meanwhile, the Southern Hemisphere has its longest day and shortest night.

Over the coming weeks, you will see the days get longer; celebrate the return of the light.

As the Sun moves into Capricorn, we enter the most serious time of the year. This is the time to focus on developing maturity and taking seriously our responsibilities and commitments. Capricorn insists that we seek accomplishment; it is important to spend time in solitude to explore and understand how closely you have aligned your life with your highest beliefs and integrity.

The upcoming month is not a time for frivolous activities; focus on accomplishment in order to create your most stable, satisfying future.

WATCH FOR OVEREXTENDING YOURSELF

Thursday, December 22, 2016:

If you have shopping still to do for your holiday celebration, be practical in your spending. With Jupiter joining with the Libra Moon at 1:30 PM EST, you could easily spend more than you intend. The possibility of over extension could show up in your emotional expenditures as well. Watch for over extension in all areas.

This will be a great day for spending time with family or loved ones. Before the Moon goes VOC*, she forms an opposition to Uranus allowing us to make unusual, exciting, or unpredictable connections with others.

By evening, quiet connection with a partner or close friend, will feel satisfying. Remember, you’re still adjusting to the changes of the past few days (Mercury retrograde, Mars entering dreamy Pisces, and the Sun entering ambitious Capricorn). Rest together, with a partner or friend. Some hours of calm quiet rest may be more important than you realize.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:32 PM EST until she enters Scorpio on Friday morning at 9:32 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.

 

MYSTERY AND INTRIGUE

Friday, December 23, 2016:

The rest we required on Thursday evening will serve us well when the Moon enters emotionally penetrating Scorpio at 9:32 AM EST. Throughout the afternoon, this powerful Scorpio Moon engages in harmonious conversations with the Sun and Mars.

The intensity of your emotions can be used for practical purposes. You are powerfully driven to push forward as you approach your deepest desires.

This may be a simple day but the results of connections made may powerfully move your life forward.

There is no need to keep your deepest desires undercover. Allow others to support you and offer support to others, as you each engage in the transformation of your lives. A sense of mystery and intrigue show you are on the right path.

STABILIZE ECCENTRIC PROCLIVITIES

Saturday, December 24, 2016:

Saturday holds a very important transit that presents important keys to the coming months. At 7:20 PM EST, Saturn trine Uranus; this is the first of three ‘hits’ of this aspect. The second will be on May 19, 2017 and the third on November 11, 2017.

This transit brings the defiant, independent, and eccentric, revolutionary energy of Uranus and the stabilizing, responsible, conservative authority of Saturn into a harmonious conversation. Uranus questions the places where Saturn is stuck. Saturn shows Uranus how to bring responsibility and stabilization to revolutionary shocking realities.

Considering how these two energies may support each other in the midst of our current political catastrophe certainly gives us food for thought. Uranus upsets and revolutionizes; Saturn brings maturity and restriction. Keep in mind that this is a harmonious connection. Harmonious for whom, we must ask?  We have no idea what is happening behind the scenes politically; we do know there are powerful energies at work.

Within the context of your personal life, this may show up as you struggle to stabilize your more eccentric proclivities or work to break out of places where you are stuck. Much depends on where this occurs in your chart. If you have personal planets between 18 and 22 of Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), you are feeling a deep flow on these issues.

It is a delight to find that on Sunday, which so many people are celebrating, provides us with an entire day of the Scorpio Moon VOC*. This enables us to easily relax into a holiday. There is nothing to be done. Enjoy wherever you find yourself. The Scorpio Moon encourages us to stay deeply connected to profound emotions.

Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and sensual pleasures is incredibly active on Sunday. First, she forms a lovely, flowing trine to philosophical Jupiter at 8:22 AM EST allowing your understanding of love and beauty to expand.

When she sextiles Uranus at 11:35 AM EST, she asks you to look outside of your conservative expectations to see unexpected or unusual opportunities that may be presented to create beauty or build on loving connections.

At 1:32 PM EST, she sextiles Saturn offering the possibility of mature stabilization of love. These delightful Venus aspects promise you a delightful day.

Unfortunately, of course, you may have personal transits that override all this pleasure and beauty. Even so, you will feel this; remain open to the enjoyment of it.

As you head into the evening, the Moon enters Sagittarius at 10:19 PM EST, you may want to stay up late enough to spend some time in the expansive emotional energy that comes forward at the time.

Absorb and extend outward to others, all the love that you can muster on Sunday.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:22 AM EST until she enters Sagittarius at 10:19 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.

__________________________________________________________
* 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, textiles, 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: April 18, 2016 through April 24, 2016

This will be the first week with Mars retrograde.  If you have planets or significant points in your chart within a few degrees of 8° Sagittarius (or Pisces, Gemini, or Virgo), this week will have some significant messages for you.  Pay careful attention to how you utilize the energy represented by the planets that are being impacted and the house that contains 8° Sagittarius.

If you are uncertain as to where and how this is impacting you and yet you feel the impact strongly, please consider getting a consultation with either Jenny or myself.

This is a powerful transit and one that is very important to pay attention to.  Mars represents direct action, assertive energy, self-determination, and strength.  He also represents initiative, impulsive action, sexual energy, survival instinct, courage, anger, and war.

Look within to examine how you use the energy of Mars.  Consider how direct you are and how you use your sexual energy.  It is not uncommon for a lover from the past to resurface during Mars retrograde.  If this happens, think about how the energy within that relationship was used, are there amends that can be made now?  Was there a lack of integrity between you regarding sexual expression or anger?

Are you willing to face wounds to your sexuality or wounds you have visited on others due to your lack of integrity with your own sexuality or issues of anger?

It is also important to get clear on whether your actions are in true alignment with your beliefs and your deepest values.  Reflect on your motivations and your pursuit of your desires.

Working with your deepest personal values is going to be a significant focus this week as Venus (the planet of personal values, relationships, and money) forms difficult aspects to both Pluto and Uranus.

You can expect a powerful week as we adjust to the backward motion of Mars, encounter powerful transformative energy regarding our values, and come to the Scorpio Full Moon while we sleep on Friday morning.

 

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.  Allow more joy and love into your life.

Make your appointment today!

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.

 

 

DISORIENTATION AND ADJUSTMENT

Monday, April 18, 2016:

The day begins with Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn all retrograde; then at 3:26 AM EDT Pluto joins the fun!  On April 28th, Mercury will also jump on the retrograde wagon.

When the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) are retrograde, they stay retrograde for an extended period of time.  Pluto will be retrograde for approximately 5 months passing through the middle degrees of Capricorn.  While Pluto is retrograde, I think we have the opportunity to work deeply on our hidden psychological issues. During this time, you may be able and willing to see and overcome deeply ingrained patterns of powerlessness and damaged self-esteem.

The Moon is in Virgo throughout the day, she is highly inactive after 8:30 AM EDT. As much as possible, take time to rest on Monday.  You may feel disoriented as you adjust to the retrograde pattern of both Mars and Pluto.

At 10:37 AM EDT, Venus and Saturn (in Aries and Sagittarius, respectively) form a trine aspect (120°) between them.  While there is disorientation in certain areas, you are likely to feel some stability and inspiration in the area of your love relationship(s), your creative efforts, or your financial situation.  In these areas, go ahead and push forward with gentle steady pressure.  Please keep your level of integrity high and your level of expectation low.

Remember, on Monday that the people you love and all the people you encounter are adjusting to these shifting cycles.  Yes, the stories we live are different but many of the struggles reside in the same places in our hearts.

Offer respect, assistance, and love.  You can do that silently from your heart to theirs.

 

SUN ENTERS TAURUS – DEEP CHALLENGE

Tuesday, April 19, 2016:

Prepare for a significant day on Tuesday.  At 7:24 AM EDT, the Moon enters Libra, the sign of grace and diplomacy.  Then at 11:29 AM EDT, the Sun enters Taurus, the sign of steadfast predictability.  Now, doesn’t that sound like a lovely combination?

Both Libra and Taurus are ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, love, and your personal values.  However, this day Venus squares Pluto at 4:51 PM EDT, throwing a monkey wrench into the system.  We must consider not only what this aspect means on its own, but also the entire cycle between Venus and Pluto.

The cycle between Venus and Pluto is a cycle of empowering our values, in order to do so; we often have to face our demons.  This can bring up issues regarding relationship, finances, resources, or beauty.  This cycle began on February 5, 2016. Consider what began in your life at that time.  Now, you will want to take an action to push this that situation forward.  The cycle will come to full expression on June 30th, just as Mars turns direct once again.

You will likely encounter a struggle regarding love or finances, it is important that you take the action most appropriate to bring you where you want to go with this issue.  There may be a powerful struggle involved.

Think about who you want to be rather than how you feel.  Take action to move forward.  You really do have a choice how you engage in the power struggles that you encounter.

Be willing to explore what is difficult; do not turn your back on it.  With Venus in Aries, find the courage to look clearly at your own motivations and control issues.  This is not the time to play the blame game.  Take responsibility for yourself and your ability to become the person you know you can be.

 

Sol Negro by Luis Manuel Tejada via Wiki CommonsUNCOVER TRUTH – MAINTAIN STABILITY

Wednesday, April 20, 2016:

The challenges of Tuesday remain with us on Wednesday as the Libra Moon forms a square aspect to Pluto.  This simply reinforces our need to continue to pay attention to the level of integrity and kindness with which we live our lives.

Take a friend out to dinner, use kindness toward others as a way to move out of the difficulty in your energy field.

The energy continues to build toward the Scorpio Full Moon, which will be exact Friday at 1:24 AM EDT.  Focus on finding an objective balance between the need to dig into the muck to uncover truth and the desire to maintain the calm stability required to build the structure you need to support your good life.

 

BUILDING RELATIONSHIP

Thursday, April 21, 2016:

The day begins with an opposition between the Libra Moon and Uranus.  For the rest of the day, the Moon is VOC*, suggesting a day useful for focused democracy and relationship building.  Do whatever is in front of you to do today.  Engage where you can make a difference.  Do not expect payback.  Do not hold the outcome in mind.

Allow your kindness to speak for itself and trust that whatever is yours, will come back in its right time.

The Moon enters Scorpio at 8:18 PM EDT, preparing for the Scorpio Full Moon, occurring in the early hours of Friday morning.  Expect your emotions to be in a highly responsive state as we build toward the full illumination of the lunar cycle that began on April 7th.  You may find that you are easily attuned to the feeling state of others.

Consider objectivity and emotional autonomy.  What would it be like to deeply love without the sticky sense of responsibility, guilt, and loss of self?

 

SCORPIO FULL MOON: SENSITIVITY AND DETACHMENT

Friday, April 22, 2016:

The Scorpio Full Moon is exact at 1:24 AM EDT.  Consider what has grown from the intension that you planted at the Aries New Moon on April 7th.  Did you take the appropriate action at the First Quarter Moon on the 14th?  Where do you find yourself now?  Do you need to adjust your expectation or simply enjoy the release of creative energy?

This Full Moon is likely to leave us all feeling highly sensitive with a natural inclination to keep that emotional sensitivity private, almost a secret.

Attempting to remain objective and keep an emotional separation between yourself and this sensitivity may be desirable and possible with Venus conjunct Uranus (4:59 PM EDT).

Keep your eyes open to an unexpected experience, person, or situation coming into your life this week that will bring new perspective, excitement, and possibly a bit of anxiety.  This is the beginning of a cycle of unexpected movement within the arena of relationship, or resources.  Be prepared to open your eyes, heart, and mind in ways that will become more comfortable with time.

With Venus and Uranus connecting in the hot, aggressive sign of Aries it is important to allow yourself and others plenty of space and freedom.  Any attempt to control another person will certainly backfire.  Be open to new experiences.

Yes, you can re-write the rule book on love.  Do so wisely; you can change the rules radically as long as you do so with respect, love, and patience.

BENEATH THE SURFACE

Saturday, April 23, 2016:

The bulk of Saturday’s energies revolve around the Scorpio Moon and the aspects she makes.  When the Moon is in Scorpio, our emotions are deeply intense and private.  We feel more than usual and attach more passion and depth to our experience.

This is not a lighthearted day.  Do not expect connections to be simplistic, fun, or playful.  This is a time you will want to go to the depths of the situations you encounter.  You want what is real.  Superficiality has no place for any of us this weekend.  Spend the day by yourself or with deeply trusted confidants.

Ask: what is at the core of the matter?

Look in the mirror… allow yourself to explore the depths of your own inner heart and mind.  There is nothing to hide from yourself.  Open your mind to what is real and what is beneath the surface of what you show to the world.

 

A PARTY OR A ROAD TRIP IS IN ORDER

Sunday, April 24, 2016:

There is nothing quite like the Sagittarius Moon to bring a more meaningful perspective on where we find ourselves.  The Moon leaves the intensity of Scorpio behind to enter Sagittarius at 8:47 AM EDT.

This would be a great day for a road trip, philosophical conversations with friends, or a loud and lively party!  Allow Monday to take care of itself.

For Sunday, give yourself a little space to just enjoy the simple energy of exploration and fun.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 14, 2015 through September 20, 2015

Contemplation for the week:
Karma suggests that whatever has been done in the past has caused a result in the present, and what is done in the present will cause a result in the future.
Since time is constantly changing, causes are changing, and the effects are also changing.
There isn’t any certain unchanging consequence, nor is there any certain unchanging cause.
Therefore it is void, but cause and effect are still there. ~ Master Sheng Yen

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?
Let Astrolore help you understand the upcoming adventure and the path you are on.
Make your appointment today!

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 simple conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

TRUST THE VIEW OF BOTH SIDES

Monday, September 14, 2015:

This Monday, the Moon is in Libra making no major aspects.

Consider what it is to speak the truth while seeing the entire situation from a full 360° degree perspective. We live in a culture that expects everything to operate as a binary; we are taught to believe that the entire world is good or bad, right or wrong, black or white. We are further taught that humans are intelligent or stupid, male or female, rich or poor, attractive or unattractive, worthy or unworthy.

Open your eyes! Can you see how everything runs along a spectrum? That everything falls somewhere on that spectrum rather than firmly on one side or the other of a fixed line!

Please consider how small this vein of thinking keeps us; how little space it gives us to move into the full richness of our lives. Each of us, and the world we live in, are so much richer than we imagine.

On Monday, stop to notice how you are able to see both sides of the situations and the different sides to the people you encounter. Even as you experience the value of seeing both sides, you realize how difficult it is to make clear sharp decisions when you are able to see the entire picture.

For now, trust that no decision needs to be made; allow the full spaciousness of your view to expand and hold all the parts that make up that picture.

Do not get pulled into taking a stand. By Wednesday afternoon, your decisions will be easier to make! For now, watch the picture as it begins to unfold. Trust that clarity will arise when the time is right.

“Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.” ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

 

LET YOUR LEARNING COME THROUGH JOY

Tuesday, September 15, 2015:

Today, the Moon is in Libra, square Pluto, conjunct Mercury, sextile Venus, and opposite Uranus! Your thoughts turn to love, connection, making peace, and creating beauty. Keep your eyes open for an idea, or an opportunity to unexpectedly come to you, offering gifts of peace, love, money, resources, or beauty.

With Venus and Mars still traveling through Leo, your relationships may be experiencing more drama, or expression, than usual. Accept exactly where you find yourself and express your true self as fully as you are able.

In two days, Saturn will finally leave Scorpio behind. Thank the heavens! We have been ready for a long time to leave such intensity behind.

Saturn entered Scorpio in October of 2012. How many dark transformative paths have you walked down since that time? What have you learned from having certain hidden issues or deep secrets revealed, in your own life or others? Do you feel a release as some inner darkness has been cleansed?

For the next few years, as Saturn moves through Sagittarius, your learning will come with more exploration, travel, and education and less from areas of dark intensity. Are you ready to move into an easier place of learning?

Leave the darkness behind. Open yourself to the exploration of other ways of thinking. Your next learning opportunities will come from exploration and expansion rather than digging through darkness. Two more days! 

“I owe no explanations for my flaws. I don’t have to justify my mistakes, my past, or my insecurities. I am growing and learning.” ~ Unknown

SEEK DEEPER TRUTH

Wednesday, September 16, 2015:

The Moon is VOC* in Libra until entering Scorpio at 11:43 AM EDT.
It will probably be most productive to spend Wednesday morning without expectations, without pushing yourself toward any sort of accomplishment or work. Spend the morning working within your own routines as you build on your healthy habits of meditation, exercise, yoga, aspirations, visualizations, and any other tools you use.

Following the Moon’s entrance into Scorpio at 11:43 AM EDT, any projects or situations you are involved in will come into sharper focus. As you explore your personal situation, you may seek deeper to find the truth and the answers to the questions that have come up over the last several days.

You can access a very deep learning and a deep transformation on this final day with Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn’s next entry in Scorpio will not happen until November 2041!

“Pleasure can be supported by an illusion; but happiness rests upon truth.” ~ Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort

 

MERCURY RETROGRADE: SATURN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS

Thursday, September 17, 2015:

Thursday is a significant day with multiple shifts from the Universe.

At 2:10 PM, Mercury turns retrograde until October 9th. Remember, while Mercury is retrograde you do not want to start new projects or communications. You will be completing what has been already started. Be ready for a bit of down time to work on cleaning up the past.

Saturn then enters Sagittarius today! Your work, effort, and struggle are bound to be easier in the next few years than they have been in the past few years. We will be learning much through the simple act of study and exploring other ways of thinking and viewing the world.

We will all be given an upgrade with this movement into Sagittarius. We have learned much in the past few years through our secrets being revealed and digging into the depths of our souls. Now it is time to study, learn, and explore.

Another big story on Thursday will be the opposition between Jupiter and Neptune. This brings our attention to a significant dream that you began developing during 2009.

What was the expansive dream that you were developing over the course of that year? I would expect that it was an unusual dream or a dream that was intended for the betterment of all humanity. It’s unlikely that this was a dream intended for personal outcome. Yes, it was a personal dream but the purpose of the dream was much larger than your-self. Did you begin a course of study, or perhaps you developed a plan to bring technological advancements into the world or marketplace?

If you can identify what the dream was, take time now to get clear on the progress that has been made. The result is visible now in its state of full expression. Rejoice in where you find yourself. The dream has become real.

If you identify what began and find it in total failure, this is an important thing to pay attention to. It is simply telling you that you were on the wrong path; this was not the right dream for you. Don’t waste time beating yourself up! Take the energy available now to determine if there is anything to salvage and release it if there is none. New dreams are always available!

“Miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears.” ~ Richard Wilkins

 

LEARNING THE LANGUAGE OF THE UNIVERSE

Friday, September 18, 2015:

On Thursday, our environment changed, on a deep astrological level. You can feel the change if you pay attention on Friday morning!

Keep your eyes open. Watch your words and all forms of communication. Be clear and insist on clarity with all your communications. Ask the other person to repeat what they heard so you are certain they understood. Repeat back to others what you hear them say.

Give yourself extra time to get to appointments and extra time to get all sorts of work done. Give others the benefit of the doubt if they are late or say something out of left field. Ask for clarification.

The Scorpio Moon goes VOC* at 3:49 PM until she enters Sagittarius at 11:31 PM EDT.

Remember: VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment and are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

“On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realize that, there is a playful, joyous energy behind what you do.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

OPEN YOURSELF TO LEARNING AND GROWTH

Saturday, September 19, 2015:

On Saturday, the Moon is in Sagittarius along with (the newly entered) Saturn.
This is a powerful day to consider what you want to learn or teach, over the next few years. Saturn moving through Sagittarius gives us a boost for the entire process of teaching and learning.

Expect to be amazed at how rapidly educational opportunities develop and grow on the internet as virtual class rooms become the norm. Do some research on where and how to learn something that will greatly increase your perspective of life and the vastness of your connection to your world.

How about Astrology!?  I will teach you how to make astrology useful in your life and your relationships. Contact me for a free 10 minute conversation about how Astrolore’s Astrology Adventure Program can move your knowledge into a richer yet more practical level.

“Let go of your attachment to being right and suddenly your mind is more open. You’re able to benefit from the unique viewpoints of others without being crippled by your own judgment.” ~ Ralph Marston

 

ANTICIPATE PLEASURE

Sunday, September 20, 2015:

Sunday will bring you to the culmination of a great weekend. The Moon continues through Sagittarius allowing you to make a choice between seeking a higher understanding of the world or simply enjoying an afternoon party!

Perhaps Saturday night’s party won’t end until Sunday. Or perhaps your choice will bring you to a meditation center where you will do your best to explore the world and your life from a perspective that lifts you above the mundane world.

On Sunday, a Grand Trine forms between the Moon (Sagittarius), Venus (Leo), and Uranus (Aries). This offers a free flow of excitement, heart, and love. Anticipate (and offer) pleasure, love, and deep connection. Enjoy!

“It is not joy that makes us grateful. It is gratitude that makes us joyful.” ~ David Rast

__________________________________________________________
This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.
Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

Wednesday, September 16, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Libra) following a sextile to Mars at 12:22 AM EDT, until she enters Scorpio at 11:43 AM EDT.

Friday, September 18, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Scorpio) following a square to Mars at 3:49 PM EDT, until she enters Sagittarius at 11:31 PM EDT.
