RELEASE IN PREPARATION

Monday, August 14, 2017:
The Taurus Moon really wants to be calm, stable, and settled today. However, at 10:30 AM EDT, she forms a difficult, challenging aspect to aggressive Mars.
You may encounter anger or deep frustration, remember to not engage that energy and it will pass quickly being only a Moon transit.
Over the next few hours, calm should be restored as the steady Taurus Moon proceeds to make positive aspects to both beautiful Venus and Pluto allowing love and empowerment to flow into your life.

At 9:16 PM EDT, the Taurus Moon forms a difficult square aspect to the brightly shining Leo Sun as we reach the Third Quarter Square between our two Luminaries. You are encouraged to release and let go of what no longer serves your life. This release is important as you prepare for the major new Lunar Cycle coming at the Full Solar Eclipse on August 21st.

 

UNDERSTAND YOURSELF

Tuesday, August 15, 2017:

In November of 2016, Venus joined with Pluto. She is asking that your relationship dynamics enter into a serious conversation. Today, at 7:17 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty opposes Pluto, the planet of deeply significant change and transformation. The conversation that began last Fall now becomes illuminated and you are able to enter a state of understanding.

This aspect could bring about a further conversation about love, money, or other precious resources. Look for clarity as you move forward with your personal values. As you reach toward clarity, do not be surprised to find feelings of vulnerability, fear, and defensiveness. Breathe through the challenge and look clearly at what is laid out before you.

At 10:07 AM EDT, as the Moon enters inquiring Gemini your conversations can begin with genuine curiosity. Much can be learned today that will assist you in more fully developing your understanding related to your beliefs and values.

 

CURIOUS CONVERSATIONS

Wednesday, August 16, 2017:

As the chatty Gemini Moon squares nebulous Neptune at 8:35 AM EDT, it may seem difficult to get the day started or to feel like you’re doing anything more than spinning your wheels.

By mid-afternoon, things loosen up and conversations become interesting and provocative. At 3:30 PM EDT, the active Gemini Moon sextiles assertive Mars and trines lovely Jupiter at 6:35 PM EDT. Engage in conversations with folks you may otherwise avoid. You may learn something new that surprises or even changes your way of thinking.

Enjoy the afternoon, it is the best part of Wednesday.

At 9:40 PM EDT, the Moon opposes heavy hearted Saturn. This may have you head to bed with a difficult reality pressing heavily on your mind. Remember, this is only a Moon transit and will pass before morning.

 

TEMPTATION TO OVERINDULGE

Thursday, August 17, 2017:

At 2:39 AM EDT, beautiful Venus forms a challenging square aspect to optimistic Jupiter. This leads you to confront your understanding of your personal values and the importance of beauty and love in your life.

This transit asks that you question your approach to Tuesday’s opposition between Venus and Pluto. Whatever clarity you reached regarding your values is pushed to greater understanding and acceptance. You will find value in looking into the dark spaces within yourself that you would rather not encounter; do so anyway. You will learn something valuable.

You may be tempted to overextend, overindulge, or overspend on Thursday. This aspect will impact the entire day; it may be a good idea to leave your credit cards at home as freely spending is a common response to this transit, especially if it is highlighted in your personal chart. The over optimism of this transit may balance some of the challenges we are all working through while offering hope for the future.

At 12:13 PM EDT, the Moon enters home loving Cancer. This will settle your mind and open your heart. Spend the evening close to loved ones.

 

TENSION BUILDS; SHOW LOVE

Friday, August 18, 2017:

Do you feel the tension building? We are in the Dark Phase of the Moon as we rapidly approach the great Solar Eclipse which will come to perfection on Monday afternoon at 2:26 PM EDT.

There is much being said about this eclipse and this time it is not unwarranted hype. We are in very intense, transformative times. This is a pivot point and is exposed clearly in the collective dramas of our times. On a personal level, pay extra attention if you have planets or sensitive points near 29° Leo (or the other fixed signs: Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius).

Friday begins with an easy, even gentle edge as the Moon moves through sensitive, loving Cancer. The morning may bring a touch of dreaminess with the involvement of Neptune.

At 4:45 PM EDT, the Cancer Moon opposes Pluto and several hours later, she squares Jupiter. You may want to spend time alone to head off potential family power dynamics. In relating with loved ones and family, be aware of the heightened sensitivity and do your best to show loving compassion, patience, and kindness.

SEXY DATE NIGHT

Saturday, August 19, 2017:

Don’t be surprised when the early morning energies feel a bit disruptive or bring surprising changes that come unexpectedly. The sensitive Cancer Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unruly Uranus at 11:17 AM EDT.

This may be just the push you need to jump start the day! At 1:55 PM EDT, the Moon enters playful, dramatic, and boisterous Leo. This is a perfect night for a party or other social fun engagements. Shortly after midnight, Mars forms a delightful sextile aspect to expand fun-loving Jupiter suggesting a great night for a fun, playful, sexy date.

 

PREPARE FOR CHANGE

Sunday, August 20, 2017:

In the very early hours of Sunday morning, Mars forms an encouraging sextile aspect to expansive Jupiter helping us to regard the future with hope, positive aspirations, and high regard for the future even as we feel the shifting sands upon us.

Sunday brings with it high-energy, excitement, determination, and the desire to take action. We are building strongly to Monday’s Solar Eclipse. Prepare for a profound shift in whatever area 29° Leo falls in your chart… and, of course, the profound movement within the culture is obvious to all of us!

Perhaps, it is time to contact me for a consultation.

In the meantime, enjoy the Sun in playful, warm Leo. At 11:55 PM EDT, use your physical energy constructively and with kindness. Make love before you sleep; you will be glad you did.

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

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 14, 2017

It is hard to imagine that I didn’t get the post prepared this week. I apologize and promise to be back on board next week.

I guess I was having such a good time, I got totally distracted! Perhaps, my vacation got away from me! I believe this is the first time I have missed a post in 10 years!!

Monday’s is here and I will have the dailies on Facebook… perhaps, I will send them out here each day as well. 🙂

From The Full Moon Fell Nokomis by Winston Stokes, Illustrator M. L. Kirk via Wiki Commons

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…

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.

Watch your mental (Mercury) and physical (Mars) energies this week!

A Jest by Thomas Cooper Gotch via SightsWithin

Mercury, an inner planet responsible for our communication, thinking, perception, and understanding, forms highly challenging aspects to multiple planets. These transits may be intended to shift your attention. These Mercury aspects may bring you a new understanding of how you currently use your voice and how you may want or need to change your manner of communication. They may even ask you to change what you are thinking about!

Mars, an inner planet that facilitates our direct physical energy, assertiveness, and anger, is also active this week. On Monday, your ability to assert yourself with courage helps a dream move forward toward reality. On Sunday, it will be prudent to be aware of the tendency toward an expression of anger that is best avoided. Please pay attention to your own internal triggers and keep out of the range of your own anger.

DREAMS DO COME TRUE

Monday, June 26, 2017:

The combination of active planetary cycles on Monday allow for a lovely day of creativity and imagination. Mars, the planet of action, forms a supportive trine aspect to Neptune, the planet of dreams and inspiration, while we sleep early on Monday morning. This will remain with us throughout the day.

The cycle between Mars and Neptune began on the first day of January, 2017. This is a cycle of bringing strength and determination to your dreams. Look back at any resolutions you made at the New Year! You may be surprised to see that your dream is alive and moving in exactly the right direction. J

With the Moon in playful, expressive Leo and forming a lovely sextile aspect to expansive Jupiter at 4:43 PM EDT, you may want to shout your good news from the rooftops. Go ahead and do that!

 

 

SHIFTING BELIEFS & UNDERSTANDING

Tuesday, June 27, 2017:

Tuesday will bring us to an active, playful, and highly interesting day.

With the Moon in dramatic, expressive Leo, your energy is stabilized by a trine aspect to dutiful Saturn at 9:38 AM EDT.

Gaining clarity on your responsibilities is helpful when thoughtful Mercury forms a challenging square to idealistic Jupiter (at 2:20 PM EDT) asking you to question certain fundamental beliefs you hold regarding intimacy and relationship.

At 5:11 PM EDT, your eyes may open to a new perspective that could completely shift your understanding.

Later, as logical Mercury forms a supportive trine aspect to mystical Neptune at 8:22 PM EDT, your mind is encouraged to embrace a new understanding of a long anticipated dream. Indeed, please remember that dreams do come true.

At 8:42 PM EDT, with the Moon entering meticulous Virgo, you will want to get a good night’s sleep to face a more practical, industrious day on Wednesday.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:11 PM EDT until she enters Virgo at 8:42 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

SPEAK WITH CONSCIOUS INTENT

Wednesday, June 28, 2017:

The analytical Virgo Moon forms a delightful sextile aspect to the intuitive Cancer Sun at 9:04 AM EDT. This makes us feel inspiring, gracious, and sweet. This is a great start to the day.

However, Wednesday afternoon could bring difficult or demanding conversations as mental Mercury conjoins with aggressive Mars (at 15° Cancer) at 3:50 PM EDT. With your thinking and your need for direct, unapologetic action coming together in moody Cancer, it is important that you find a way to manage aggravation and frustration without it spilling over onto others and leaving a big mess to later clean up!

Your first choice should be to practice patience and kindness with yourself and others. There may well be important things that must be said. If you choose to speak out on Wednesday, pay attention to the words that you use and the manner of your delivery. Blurting out the truth as you see it will very likely come back to bite you.

Don’t expect it to be easy but make a solid effort to say what must be said with clear and conscious intent.

 

 

EXPLORING DARKNESS

Thursday, June 29, 2017:

Thursday’s dedicated, hard-working Virgo Moon forms a difficult square aspect to restrictive Saturn at 2:52 PM EDT. Are you working too hard? Are you or someone in authority holding you to a standard that feels beyond your ability?

With an opposition between communicative Mercury and power-hungry Pluto exact at 8:35 PM EDT, any resentment that formed early in the day could get ugly. Pay attention to power dynamics and do your best to sidestep manipulation, coercion, and other underhanded attempts at control.

Make sure your connections with others are of the highest integrity.

Spend the evening in deep study or intense conversation with trusted, respected equals. Much understanding can come from an exploration of darkness and hidden forces. Make sure your words are constructive and that your intention is to help each other understand issues of depth and significance.

If you began a study or an important conversation in late January, the results of the seed planted at that time will be clear now. Look for it.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:35 PM EDT until she enters Libra in the wee hours (3:03 AM EDT) of Friday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

SENSITIVITY AND CHARM

Friday, June 30, 2017:

When you wake up on Friday morning, the Moon will be in graceful Libra. You can anticipate spending the weekend seeking harmony, cooperation, and diplomacy in social situations and intimate relationships.

This brings us to a weekend of community engagement and romantic encounters. Don’t spend the weekend alone. Find friends for pleasurable activities or go to a nice restaurant, not the dive downtown or your ‘regular haunt’. Go somewhere with tablecloths and candles, or invite a few friends over and pull out your best china and create an environment of refinement and beauty.

Create a space of allure, charm, pleasure, and romance.

At 8:52 PM EDT, we come to the First Quarter Moon with the Sun in emotional Cancer and the Moon in graceful Libra. Love and pleasure must be combined with deep sensitivity and maternal tenderness. Can you embrace all this sweetness and charm?

DEEP HEALING

Saturday, July 1, 2017:

Chiron is a comet, which in astrology symbolizes deep wounds and the push to heal those wounds. At 3:09 AM EDT, Chiron turns retrograde opening a five-month window to work deeply with your healing process. Look to 28° or 29° Pisces in your natal chart for the house (area of your life) that is being activated.

If you have planets in the last degrees of mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces), you will be pushed particularly hard to work on your path of healing. If you have been avoiding working with deep long-standing wounds in your life, this is the time to meet them head on. This is a good time to finally work with an astrologer to see your situation from the amazing perspective of the greater universe (Yes, Astrolore is taking new clients; contact me today.)

The normally social and charming Libra Moon does not have an easy run of it on Saturday. Issues of anger, frustration, and power dynamics could get in the way as the Moon forms challenging square aspects to impulsive Mars, subversive Pluto, and perceptive Mercury.

Do your best on Saturday to maintain inner balance and equanimity. Work to show kindness to others and don’t forget to focus on your own self-care.

 

 

INERTIA BECOMES EMPOWERMENT

Sunday, July 2, 2017:

The Libra Moon is VOC* (void of course) until 1:00 PM EDT on Sunday afternoon.

Let’s take this opportunity to review what that means. When the Moon is Void of Course (VOC), she has made her final major aspect to another planet while in one sign. The Moon then makes no more major aspects to other planets before she leaves that sign to enter the next. It is a phenomenon of the transiting Moon.

A VOC Moon tends to leave us with a sense of inertia. It is prudent not to start anything that you have important expectations of during these times. It is best to focus on mundane activities, things that must be done but aren’t expected to have significant long-term impact.

With that in mind, keep a low profile on Sunday morning. Sleep late, read the paper, rest.

At 1:00 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio bringing intensity and depth to the rest of the day. You will want to connect with others but with none of the “wanting to make it look pretty” of Libra! Now, there is a powerful desire to delve deeply into profound emotions and to uncover what is hidden beneath the surface.

Avoid manipulation and allow for vulnerability. Extreme depth of connection is available; spend the day alone if that is not what you are looking for.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:17 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 1:00 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

INNOVATION & BRIGHT IDEAS

Monday, June 12, 2017:

Monday’s determined Capricorn Moon is a great source of support as you head into the week fully engaged and focused on effort and accomplishment. However, as the day goes on, your ability to maintain that focus may be impacted by last-minute changes in direction.

At 2:46 PM EDT, when the Moon squares Uranus, the planet of upheaval, the entire direction of your work may shift. Do your best not to let this derail you. This is only a Moon transit; please remember that this will pass quickly. Take an extended coffee break and allow innovative ideas to come into your awareness in order to get back to work with renewed excitement and energy.

At 7:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters unpredictable Aquarius, encouraging you to continue developing the surprising innovations that nudged at you earlier in the day. The conventional methods you initially were working with can now shift and allow new ways of viewing the project at hand.

Happy Birthday to Ann Frank, Aaron Farrington, Emily Walter, Chick Corea, and John Steinbeck!

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:46 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 7:45 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

A MESSAGE OF HOPE

Tuesday, June 13, 2017:

Tuesday brings a day full of mental activity, a busy day of thinking and articulating what is on your mind.

Mercury is considered to be the Winged Messenger of the Gods, and is seen as carrying messages between the planets. He moves quickly, activating all forms of communication, intellect, reasoning, and awareness; all of these are within the realm of Mercury’s domain. Pay attention to the nature of your thought processes and the content of your mind.

At 11:44 AM EDT, Mercury forms a flowing trine aspect to philosophical Jupiter, bringing optimism and enthusiasm to your thinking. Then, shortly before bedtime (at 11:29 PM EDT), Mercury forms a challenging square aspect to elusive, dreamy Neptune. What message of optimism is Mercury bringing to your deepest dreams or your spiritual path?

I think Mercury is offering a message of hope to areas of confusion within your soul. Allow yourself to hear the messages that come from your dreams. Meditate and listen in silence to the persistence voice that calls you to the deepest understanding of Universal Love.

With the Moon in innovative Aquarius, your open heart perceives a progressive humanitarian view of your world.

Happy Birthday to William Yeats, Paul Lynde, and Tim Allen!

With the Moon in progressive Aquarius, forming a flowing trine to the Gemini Sun, you will want to express yourself in a highly individualistic manner on Wednesday.

You will be more interested in new experiences that are outside the arena of what has become familiar. If there are areas of your life where you have felt stuck and have been unable to move forward, this is a good time to say what needs to be said in order to facilitate the initial step forward. Listen as others speak, you will hear the originality beneath the ordinary.

Open your mind and allow your most exciting thoughts to gain momentum. At 7:49 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a sweet sextile aspect to Saturn, your wild thoughts and conversations are stabilized. Consider what lasting value is being created as you courageously express your most unusual ideas, your most unique self, or your beliefs regarding individual freedom.

Happy Birthday to Gilda Seelke, Vivian Van Natta, and Burl Ives!

 

 

FOCUS AND ATTENTION

Thursday, June 15, 2017:

Don’t be surprised if no one at your breakfast table seems particularly chipper on Thursday morning. At 6:17 AM EDT, the normally upbeat Gemini Sun opposes restrictive Saturn; immediately on the heels of that challenging aspect, the Moon slipped quietly into Pisces.

It will take focus and attention to use these energies productively, it would be all too easy to fall into self-pity or victim type behaviors. Don’t go there!

The Pisces Moon would rather avoid reality in any number of ways while Saturn opposing the Sun (this transit will last throughout the day and into Friday) demands that we face reality and make a solid effort to take responsibility for the rough places we still find ourselves.

Meditation will help but deep levels of compassion for yourself and others will be your best means for managing this day.

Happy Birthday to James Belushi, Newt Gingrich, and Waylon Jennings!

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:40 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 6:18 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

DRIFTY, DREAMY DAY      

Friday, June 16, 2017:

You may be up and seemingly functioning on Friday morning without being fully aware that you are not still dreaming!

As Neptune stations retrograde at 7:10 AM EDT and is closely followed by the Pisces Moon joining her at 14° Pisces, things are not as they seem. It is possible that you will feel particularly vulnerable and emotional, or perhaps you feel suspicious or confused.

The outer planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) are retrograde for long periods of time and are not challenging the way the inner planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) are during their retrogrades. The reversal of this passive, sensitive energy may take a few days to adjust to.

You may need to take a closer or more prolonged look at some of your more unrealistic plans and dreams.

You will definitely want to take a new look at what needs adjusting in your meditation practice.

The Moon remains in imaginative, mystical Pisces (ruled by Neptune) throughout the day. Have a restful evening in preparation for the weekend when you will have must more energy to work with.

DREAMINESS REPLACED BY IMPULSIVE ACTION

Saturday, June 17, 2017:

Saturday begins slowly; with the Third Quarter Moon in elusive Pisces. It may be hard to shake your dreams or move beyond a profound level of sensitivity. Under this influence, it is best to refrain from expectations of yourself or others.

At 1:55 PM EDT, impulsiveness or excitability will change your mental picture, as the Moon enters dynamic, impatient Aries. This will be a good afternoon for outdoor physical activities. Hiking, skydiving, or biking come to mind. Use your body to keep this powerful energy from getting stuck in anger or aggression. You may feel strongly motivated to start something new; the Aries Moon also providing the courage to step forward and take on whatever challenge you put your mind to.

Don’t plan for a quiet night at home with food and loved ones. You will do better to join your less sedate friends in a loud bar for a few beers!

Happy Birthday to M.C. Escher, Kelly Hurd, Barry Manilow, and Dean Martin!

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:33 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 1:55 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

EMBRACE PARADOX

Sunday, June 18, 2017:

Sunday is likely to be a complex day. The fiercely impatient side of the Aries Moon will be on display as the she forms challenging aspects to Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto pushing us to deal with challenges we may rather avoid. Pay attention and don’t let yourself be swept into passionate anger. Go for a walk to cool off if you feel that type of distress arising.

Conflicting messages are suggested by two major aspects perfecting on Sunday afternoon. At 2:47 PM EDT, the Gemini Sun forms a delightful sextile to Uranus which offers an opportunity of excitement, individuality, and freedom.

The conflicting message comes in when Mercury opposes Saturn at 3:07 PM EDT, this will likely feels much like a limitation being put on your thoughts and ideas.

Push and pull. Freedom vs. restriction.

Don’t allow yourself to fret in frustration. Allow both sides to exist side by side. A major key to living this life with joy is to allow and embrace paradox!

Happy Birthday to Paul McCartney, Sylvia Porter, Aaron Hirka, Kecia Gaboriault, and Beth Hopwood!

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

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