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.

EVENING SURPRISES

Monday, July 2, 2018:

Monday begins with a quietly quirky VOC* Aquarius Moon. There’s no need to hurry into this week and attempting to do so will simply leave you frustrated and feeling bad about yourself. Allow quiet and slowness to lead the way.

At 1:31 PM EDT, the Moon enters mystical, poetic Pisces. If you could take today off from work and simply rest, that would be the best use of this day.

At 5:39 PM EDT, the dreamy Pisces Moon forms a sextile aspect to Uranus. You may finally be ready to engage with others and with the world in general. Your dreams and ideals may be sharp, brilliant, and unusual, leading you into fascinating, forward-thinking conversations.

Bring as many people as possible together to share in your new ideas and listen to the ideas they are willing to share as well. Enjoy the evening’s surprises.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (the time between the last major aspect made in one sign until the Moon enters the next sign) all morning until she enters Pisces at 1:31 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from whatever is begun. This is neutral; simply suggesting that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

LISTEN TO THE TREES SING

Tuesday, July 3, 2018:

Here, in the U.S, with tomorrow being our Independence Day, perhaps you were able to take today off as well. It seems a shame to waste such a sweet and dreamy day at a job unless of course, you are lucky enough (as I am) to do work you truly love.

The Moon is in Pisces throughout the day, forming a lovely Grand Trine with the sensitive Cancer Sun and Jupiter in powerful Scorpio. This configuration offers the opportunity to block out the parts of our lives that are overwhelmingly difficult and simply enjoy the sweetness that is also present in each day.

Go for a walk in nature and open your eyes and your heart to the natural world. Have you listened recently to the trees sing?

 

 

MAINTAIN EASE

Wednesday, July 4, 2018:

These first few days of the week are relatively easy ones. Clearly, that depends on how some of the heavier planets are impacting you directly. We certainly can’t forget that Mars (retrograde in Aquarius) will reach a state of considerable difficulty on Thursday. You may feel the energy of agitation building throughout Wednesday.

Image via Pixabay.

The Pisces Moon will help you go with the flow and perhaps even let challenges bypass you altogether. Thursday is soon enough to deal with what is poking at you! Does it feel like a pebble in your shoe that you can’t stop long enough to remove?
For now, spend the day with your rose-colored glasses firmly affixed.

Here in the U.S., this is a holiday, perhaps you are with family and friends. If you feel anger, impatience, or frustration building, take time for meditation or go ahead and have that extra glass of wine. Whatever it takes to help you to maintain ease.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (the time between the last major aspects made in one sign until the Moon enters the next sign) from 5:47 AM EDT until she enters Aries in the wee hours of Thursday morning. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from whatever is begun. This is neutral; simply suggesting that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

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! 

 

 

SLOW DOWN

Thursday, July 5, 2018:

If you had Wednesday off from work for the July 4th holiday, it may actually be a relief to get back to your desk on Thursday. Thursday morning brings the assertive Aries Moon along with a hard aspect between Mercury and retrograde Mars. Find a way to release energy that will not come back to bite you.

You may feel angry and have a difficult time controlling your desire to speak your mind with little or no tact. Watch the words and the tone of what needs to be said. Perhaps, writing your thoughts (pause & think before hitting the ‘Send’ button) will help to organize your thinking and make clear what needs to be said.

There is a tendency to blurt out immediately what comes to mind. Hold on and wait or go for a run and release physical energy. That will help.

Remember, before you speak, ask yourself: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? If you follow this, very little will be said and you will get through the day with your relationships intact.

 

 

SEEK COURAGE

Friday, July 6, 2018:

Friday brings us to the 3rd Quarter Moon phase with the sensitive Cancer Sun being challenged by the aggressive Moon in Aries. Where are you feeling pulled to move forward with more courage than you feel you have? Where is your distrust of your own strength holding you back?

At 2:55 PM EDT, with the take-charge Aries Moon squaring powerful Pluto, you are given the opportunity or the expectation to dig deeply into hidden corners of your psyche. Find a level of courage you are not accustomed to working with. Take a step forward, face your fears, and let go of something that has been holding you in a position of victimhood. Freedom exists on the other side.

 

“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

 


SLEEP OUTDOORS

Saturday, July 7, 2018:

Try to sleep until the Moon enters Taurus at 8:51 AM EDT on Saturday morning and approach the day with a perspective of slow, sensual awareness. Enjoy cuddling with your partner, enjoy a hearty breakfast, and a walk in nature.

When the Moon joins with Uranus at 12:46 PM EDT, you may have a new surprising awareness regarding your relationship or what the natural world has to teach you. Try to absorb this awareness without moving too quickly.

At 5:59 PM EDT, when the steady Taurus Moon trines Saturn, stabilize those ideas and consciously bring kindness to all in your circle of influence. Saturday provides a great evening for small, intimate gatherings or quiet time with a deeply loved partner. Given that it is a summer Saturday night, sleeping outdoors would be a lovely adventure.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (the time between the last major aspects made in one sign until the Moon enters the next sign) from 3:09 AM EDT until she enters Taurus at 8:51 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from whatever is begun. This is neutral; simply suggesting that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

 

COMPASSION, IMAGINATION, & LOVE

Sunday, July 8, 2018:

A lovely Sunday in the forecast and it’s perfect for a day for the beach, time in nature, or if the weather doesn’t cooperate, an afternoon matinee.

At 10:41 AM EDT, the Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to Neptune, allowing you an open-hearted and compassionate view of your life and circumstances.

In considering the full cycle of the Sun and Neptune, a cycle of dreamy, inspirational growth, think about what inspiration began in the first week of March of 2018 and also required attention in the first week of June. Now, the path opens allowing flow that will bring you to an open illumination and spiritual understanding in early September.

Follow the path of compassion, imagination, and love. You can smile internally as your understanding of oneness grows.

DETACHED VIEWPOINT

Monday, June 4, 2018:

A very quiet Aquarius Moon is with us throughout Monday. You can stay home and get just as much accomplished as if you go to work or the other way around. Because the Moon is VOC* all day, there really is nothing you need to accomplish.

This is a day best suited for wild, innovative thinking and gathering with others of like mind. With the Moon in Aquarius, you will do well to seek insights and genius ideas in the company of others. Your emotions generally will not get in the way as you are able to set them aside and view your life from a more detached viewpoint. You are more interested in the plight of humanity and in the big picture of others than in your own pesky emotional state.

I find that long VOC* Moon periods can feel a bit frustrating as I can’t seem to settle into anything and feel a bit like I am aimlessly spinning my wheels. Feel free to have a different experience.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:09 AM EDT until she enters Pisces on Tuesday morning at 6:54 AM EDT. This is a VERY LONG VOC* Moon. 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.

 

 

POWER DYNAMICS IN LOVE

Tuesday, June 5, 2018:

The Moon has entered dreamy Pisces by the time Tuesday gets underway but don’t expect a passive or quiet day due to a build-up of significant interplanetary transits perfecting before the day’s end.

At 10:01 PM EDT, Mercury joins with the Sun in the mid-degree of Gemini, shortly before a powerfully stressful opposition from Venus to Pluto.

Pay attention to what you say and what is said to you. Make sure you understand what is bubbling beneath the words. If you had a significant relationship or financial issues that began in the first two weeks of January 2018, notice how that story has played out and is being expressed now.

You could encounter difficult power dynamics in a love relationship or financial situations. Keep this issue in mind for Wednesday as well; these issues will not vanish overnight.

 

GO WITH YOUR IMAGINATION

Wednesday, June 6, 2018:

Les Dames du Marché by Bernard Cadène via Wiki MediaWednesday, June 6, 2018:

As Wednesday begins, you are still working on the difficult underlying story regarding power dynamics in love or financial concerns. You may be somewhat successful in sweeping those issues under the rug due to the challenge from thoughtful Mercury to dreamy Neptune, along with another square building from the Sun to Neptune.

Clarity is not forthcoming over the next few days. With the Sun and Mercury still in chatty Gemini, there is a lot that you would like to say. Don’t rush into anything that involves trying to explain yourself or your position. Watch as confusion and lack of clarity are expressed in conversations all around you. Expect interesting communications as folks try to talk about things they either know very little about or they are unable to articulate what they do know.

Neptune does not support understanding, so it is probably best to wait before speaking your mind about sensitive issues. Neptune does support meditation and dreams. The Moon is in Pisces all day further heightening your connection to spirituality, lack of clarity, and imagination. So spend the day with soft concerns. Rest and dream.

 

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! 

 

 

DELVE INTO MUSIC, POETRY, MEDITATION

Thursday, June 7, 2018:

Thursday continues with the same challenge to clarity that was with us on Wednesday. Utilize this sense of watery spaciousness by delving into music, poetry, meditation, or other spiritual concerns. Use your imagination and take the opportunity to dream.

All this Neptune activation should fall away rather dramatically when the Moon leaves passive, quiet Pisces and enters aggressive, loud Aries at 5:26 PM EDT.

It may feel like you have been suddenly been released from a fog or having had bandages removed from your eyes. It’s a relief. Of course, this depends on your circumstances. If you are an artist, a poet, or a mystic. this may very well not be a welcome shift.

Most of you will be more than ready to face the next few days with more assertiveness and energy to take action and move forward. Spend the evening on your own doing something physically active. Go for a run, bike ride, enjoy the strength of your body and your ability to use it to whatever extent you are able.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:35 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 5:26 PM EDT. This is a VERY LONG VOC* Moon. 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.

 

CHALLENGE YOURSELF

Friday, June 8, 2018:

You should wake up on Friday morning feeling strongly driven and able to tap into fierce determination and courage. Find a way to use that energy before it slips into impatience or combativeness.

At 6:56 AM EDT, the Aries Moon makes a positive aspect to Mars. If you are feeling short-tempered or aggressive, it is best to go for a run, have a hot sexual encounter, or masturbate. Move the forceful, excitable energy of Mars (Mars rules Aries) through your body.

When the Moon is in Aries, it is time to take on a challenge, be competitive, take a risk, prove something to yourself. This is not a time for empathy or romance, better to go for a direct passionate exchange.

ENGAGE THE POSITIVE

Saturday, June 9, 2018:

If you are an early riser, you will want to be aware of the tough square aspect from the Moon to Pluto at 7:43 AM EDT. Anger and power struggles could easily arise. Do what you need to in order to sidestep whatever issue arises with it.

By the time the Moon sextiles Mercury at 12:04 AM EDT, you are able to release those reactive feelings and settle into a conversation that can support the rest of the day.

Don’t make rash decisions regarding love or money in the afternoon under the influence of the Moon square to Venus, as what you need and what you desire may be strikingly at odds. This won’t last long and the evening is fully salvageable.

Make plans to go out dancing or spending time with others engaged in physical activities. Plan something fun and engaging. The day will have its ups and downs but should end on a high note.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:37 PM EDT until she enters Taurus shortly 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.

 

HEALING TOUCH

Sunday, June 10, 2018:

You will wake to a new day with the Moon, now in steady Taurus, joining in the early morning hours with exciting Uranus. Finding excitement in stability or finding your own steadfast core in the midst of anxiety may be the task at hand.

You may encounter some frustration mid-afternoon as the Moon squares Mars at 1:22 PM EDT, again, find your internal strength, maturity, and resoluteness.

This is a good day to spend in the garden, the earth will soothe the places that feel unsettle and frightening. Bring flowers into your home, create beauty around you. Show love in tangible ways. Cook a meal for your loved ones. Offer healing touch.

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

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

TAKE RISKS WITH YOUR HEART

Monday, April 23, 2018:

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

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

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

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

 

EMBRACE CURIOSITY

Tuesday, April 24, 2018:

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

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

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

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:40 PM EDT until she enters Virgo at 4:41 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact

 

INTENSITY CRACKLES IN THE BACKGROUND

Wednesday, April 25, 2018:

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

Be gentle and kind with your words.

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

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

 

 

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

Astrology in the hands of a proficient astrologer will help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything.

Together we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose.

Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.  Make your appointment today!  

 

 

 

 

PUT YOUR SHOULDER TO THE WHEEL

Thursday, April 26, 2018:

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING

Friday, April 27, 2018:

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

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

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

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

 

THE EVENING BRINGS RELIEF

Saturday, April 28, 2018:

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

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

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

 

SCORPIO FULL MOON – REVEAL YOUR TRUTH

Sunday, April 29, 2018:

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

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

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

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

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

In the wee hours, while you sleep, the Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:32 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 3:12 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

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

“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…”

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.
