SPRING EQUINOX – SUN ENTERS ARIES

Monday, March 20, 2017:

The week begins with the Sun entering Aries at 6:28 AM EDT. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox! It is bringing with it longer days, a vision for the future, new ideas, and new plans.

The Spring Equinox alerts us to a time of new beginning with plenty of reason to celebrate! This is a moment of balance and equanimity as the earth’s axis is pointing neither away from nor toward the Sun.

The shift may not initially feel as energizing as you may expect. With the expansive Sagittarius Moon joining with overly serious Saturn at 6:38 AM EDT, followed by her movement into Capricorn at 11:31 AM EDT, there is seriousness and a conservative edge to the day.

At 11:59 AM EDT, the Capricorn Moon forms a challenging aspect to the Sun, newly in Aries. Consider that Capricorn is the sign of maturity, authority, and caution while Aries is the sign of youthfulness, impatience, and excitability. When these two signs challenge each other, something has to give.

This is the Third Quarter Square phase of the Moon; it is a time of release. What has been building since the New Moon on March 27? Take it easy today. Let go and prepare for warmer days. Spring will soon begin in earnest.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:38 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 11:31 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 significant future impact.

 

 

INSPIRATION SERVES PRACTICALITY

Tuesday, March 21, 2017:

Tuesday, as the emotional Moon continues through responsible Capricorn, you are reminded that even with Spring in the air you have plenty of work to do.

At 12:17 PM EDT, even your serious nature welcomes your imagination and ability to dream. With a positive sextile aspect between the Moon and Neptune, your dreams can produce real world and practical results.

At 6:20 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a challenging square to Mercury. You are serious about the ideas that have grasped your attention.

All in all, this is a simple day of hard work with a lovely bit of inspiration. Utilize that inspiration; it will serve practical reality.

PRACTICE FLEXIBILITY

Wednesday, March 22, 2017:

Wednesday may start out a bit messy. The Aries Sun is ready to shine a little brighter without the restrictions of the Capricorn Moon. However, as the day begins, the serious Capricorn Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unsettling Uranus.

The Capricorn Moon seeks structure and demands responsibility, and yet, Uranus throws a monkey wrench into that idea as he seeks innovation and even revolution. This combination can create aggravation and upheaval throughout the morning. Work on your ability to be flexible; it may not come easily but will be well worth the effort.

The rest of the day with the Moon VOC* may just feel a little off kilter. Don’t attach yourself too much to accomplishments or forced engagements. At 10:29 PM EDT, the Moon will enter progressive Aquarius bringing a much greater sense of freedom and lightness to Thursday morning.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:20 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 10:29 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 significant future impact.

 

 

DEEPEN YOUR THINKING

Thursday, March 23, 2017:

Thursday begins with a lovely sextile between the quirky Aquarius Moon and beautiful Venus. Enjoy the morning.

Some agitation may occur when the Moon squares aggressive Mars at 5:20 PM EDT. Use your body to release this tension, go for a walk, chop some wood, or engage your body with physical effort.

As the evening approaches, you will feel expressive Mercury beginning to form a challenging square aspect to powerful Pluto, which will be exact at 8:44 PM EDT. Be aware of verbal power dynamics. Continue to make a concerted effort toward internal and external flexibility. Watch your responses to communications that come your way. Take three slow breaths before responding.

Don’t take what is said personally and watch the words that come out of your mouth as well. It is easy to say things that will be taken in a way that you many not intend. Be aware of your words, emails, and all communications.

This would be an excellent evening for deep study or to work on a powerful speech or other significant writing project.

 

 

WHAT WILL BE REVEALED?

Friday, March 24, 2017:

If you were engaged in a significant conversation, an important study, or a writing project on Thursday, Friday will be the day to expand upon and illuminate those conversations and ideas. At 8:45AM EDT, Mercury opposes Jupiter expanding your creative intelligence, your faith and belief in your ideas.

With the Moon in objective, progressive Aquarius forming delightful aspects to expansive Jupiter, thoughtful Mercury, and quirky Uranus, you can expect this to be a highly innovative day for humanitarian efforts, expansive ideas, and bringing your voice to a public arena. This is the full illumination of a cycle that began on October 11, 2016! Watch what is happening in the current political administration.

Pay attention for big revelations in your own life and on the world and national stage.

ARTISTS AND LOVERS

Saturday March 25, 2017:

Saturday offers a day to engage in actively seeking love and passively accepting love. Both sides are offered. At 6:07 AM EDT, the Moon enters compassionate, dreamy Pisces enabling us to swim within deeply emotional waters. At 6:17 AM EDT, the Sun and Venus come together in the highly assertive and active sign of Aries. Emotionally, you may get lost in sensitivity and imagination while simultaneously you know you must take action to directly go after what you truly desire. Make direct contact with love or expressions of beauty.

Once you have made direct contact with the object of your desire, allow yourself to passively engage in deep compassion or dreamy mystical states.

Bring your attention to love and beauty. This is a day made for artists and lovers.

 

 

EXCITEMENT 

Sunday, March 26, 2017:

Sunday continues with some of the dreamy sensitivity from Saturday courtesy of the surreal Pisces Moon.

But, you probably won’t be thinking too much about all of that as there is intense excitement in the air that will require all of your attention! At 11:05 AM EDT, Mercury conjoins with Uranus beginning a one year cycle of mental stimulation. Pay attention to unusual, new, or exciting ideas that come to mind. Perhaps you will hear or read something that surprises, excites, or even shocks you. Unexpected information may be revealed that will begin a new process in your life.

If you experience any sort of sluggishness or depression on Sunday, stop and consider what is it that needs to be said that you are avoiding. Something wants to be revealed. Go ahead, say it! Yes, it may very well set you on a new path, but it is a path that must be taken.

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

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

 

 

 

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 6, 2017 through March 12, 2017

Take heart!! At 7:33 PM EST on Thursday, Mars, the planet of war and strife, leaves aggressive Aries behind to enter stabilizing Taurus. You can expect some release of the deep, intense anxiety we have been embroiled in for the past few months.

Vid Källaren by Carl Larsson via Wiki Commons

Vid Källaren by Carl Larsson via Wiki Commons

It is true that Mars would far rather remain in Aries; he does not look forward to his time in Taurus. However, Mars can bring aggression and warlike behavior when in Aries; when he moves into Taurus, he has no choice but to settle down and behave more calmly.

I give this one a thumbs-up.

 

 

HEART CENTERED COMMUNICATION

Monday, March 6, 2017:

Following the weekend’s focus on communications and thinking processes, Monday morning when the Moon enters domestic Cancer at 7:54 AM EST, your focus shifts dramatically. You can anticipate a desire for comfort, affection, and sentimentality to easily override your intellectual process. With the Moon in moody and sometimes defensive Cancer, pay attention to your own sensitivity and the possible oversensitivity of others.

At 7:28 PM EST, when the Sun conjoins with mental Mercury in compassionate Pisces, your sensitivity does not diminish in the least but you are able to communicate this deep sensitivity with a clear voice. Bring compassion and clarity to heart-to-heart conversations.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:22 AM EST until it enters Cancer at 7:54 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.

 

PLEASANT MORNING – CRABBY AFTERNOON

Tuesday, March 7, 2017:

Tuesday begins easily enough. You may carry over a deep level of compassion and kindness from Monday as the protective Cancer Moon makes lovely aspects to empathetic Neptune, the all-powerful Sun, and perceptive Mercury.

Enjoy the morning; it is the best part of day. Whatever you need to accomplish, get it done early.

From the mid-afternoon through bedtime, the deeply sensitive Cancer Moon forms rough aspects to destructive Pluto, idealistic Jupiter, and defiant Uranus. Don’t be surprised at your own moodiness and the plain crabbiness of others!

Watch your defensiveness and your tendency to seek an escape at the slightest provocation.

Shortly after midnight, your mind will open to powerful opportunities. Expect to encounter these in your dreams. Keep your journal by your bedside to jot down any helpful notes when you wake up on Wednesday morning.

 

 

Children Running from a Thunderstorm by Konstantin Makovsky via Wiki CommonsEXPLORING POSSIBILITIES

Wednesday, March 8, 2017:

Wednesday brings a sense of potential with a lovely sextile aspect between mental Mercury (currently in imaginative Pisces) and powerful Pluto. This brings us to the first step in a cycle of empowerment that began on January 29, 2017. The empowerment being developed throughout this cycle is one of mental clarity or growth.  Over the course of this (approximately one year) cycle your thinking or ability to communicate is profoundly deepened. Now is the time to explore what direction this learning will take you.

For example, perhaps at the end of January you decided to embark on a writing project (or perhaps a learning or a communication project), now you begin to explore different approaches or methods that will bring that project forward. It is not yet time to take an active step forward, but a time to think about and explore those next steps.

The time for actual motion forward will come in about two weeks.

At 9:59 AM EST, with the inward Cancer Moon squaring determined Mars, you may feel aggravated and even a bit aggressive. This will pass quickly when the Moon enters vital Leo at 11:46 AM EST. With the sensitivity of Cancer left behind, you can move into a playful, self-expressive afternoon. Get together with friends or spend time with children. Allow your inner child to play and show her truly openhearted generosity.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:59 AM EST until she enters Leo at 11:46 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.

 

 

A TIME OF PREPARATION & PATIENCE

Thursday, March 9, 2017:

Thursday is almost like a mirror to Wednesday. You are once again offered the opportunity to consider, without needing to move too quickly, what will most deeply empower your ability to make a difference in the world. What path will empower the development of your gifts to the world? You are asked now to explore what you need to do over the coming weeks that will enable you to make a difference to those around you.

Again, do not take any major steps forward. Explore possibilities and consider the actions you will take over the coming months. This is a time of preparation.

At 7:33 PM EST, Mars leaves his favorite sign of Aries behind and enters the calm, stable pastures of Taurus. Mars is not delighted with this move. He is happy in his home sign of aggressive, angry Aries. However, we need this stability now.

While Mars is in Taurus (until April 23rd), we will learn patience and begin the process of planning our garden. Spring is upon us. Mars in Taurus insists that we stabilize, develop patience and steadfast devotion to our Mother Earth

 

 

PLAYFULNESS TURNS TO PRACTICAL CONCERNS

Friday, March 10, 2017:

The playful Leo Moon is expansive, excited, and steady Friday morning as she engages in delightful conversations with Jupiter, Uranus, and Saturn. The afternoon settles down into simplicity as we wait for the Moon’s entry into Virgo at 5:07 PM EST. This shift leads us into a weekend of productivity and efficiency.

It is unlikely to be a terribly exciting weekend but should be highly productive with plenty of opportunities to express kindness along with spring cleaning projects. When the efficient Virgo Moon trine determined Mars at 6:22 PM EDT, jump right on those practical projects. You have amazing energy into the evening to get things done.

At 8:34 PM EST, as Mercury conjoins with Chiron, your communications can bring deep healing to yourself or others. Maintain focus on practical matters, sensitivity, being of service to others, and simple kindness.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:05 PM EST until she enters Virgo at 5:07 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.

HELP OTHERS WITH PRACTICALITY AND SIMPLICITY

Saturday, March 11, 2017:

Any projects that you began on Friday evening will keep you occupied throughout Saturday. This is a weekend for kindness, helping others, and accomplishing organizational projects, not a weekend for excitement and dramatic activities. Detailed work is highlighted with this industrious Virgo Moon.

At 3:07 PM EST, when the Moon opposes elusive Neptune, you may feel a bit confused, dreamy, or inspired to take on a more imaginative or artistic project. If you feel tired, take a nap.

Saturday is simply not a high-energy day but a day of steady, meticulous movement forward. Virgo always seeks to be of service so helping others will come easily and feel satisfying on a deep level. However, be sure you are clear on the difference between being helpful and putting yourself in the position of being a martyr. Helping does not mean rescuing someone who holds a victim role.  Be clear of this distinction and enjoy this simple day of open awareness and generous kindness.

 

 

VIRGO FULL MOON – WORK EQUALS MASTERY

Sunday, March 12, 2017:

You may feel as if you were waking up on the wrong side of the bed on Sunday morning. At 8:10 AM EDT, (time changed while you slept!) Mercury forms a square aspect to serious, authoritative Saturn. With Mercury in dreamy Pisces, your mind longs to enter flights of fancy unrestrained by reality. However there is a strong need to step into a more serious thought process.

Did you begin a new study or a new way of thinking in late November 2016? Now, the Universe is pushing you to move forward in a mature responsible way. This is no time for mysticism or lack of clear thinking. Take action on something real, tangible, and solid.

At 10:54AM EDT, the Full Moon occurs at 22 degrees Virgo. Open yourself to a deep level of service. Where can you help others?

With the Full Moon forming challenging aspects to hard working Saturn and thoughtful Mercury (both in passive Pisces), you must understand how hard work and sustained effort is necessary to the development of mastery in your life.

This is a day to look clearly at the places you must put in long term and sustained effort. Remember, that this type of effort builds not only mastery but also self-respect and authority. Support others in building self-respect.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:37 PM EST until she enters Libra at 1:29 AM EDT on Monday. 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.

A THREAD OF POETRY

Monday, January 23, 2017:

The week begins with an optimistic Sagittarius Moon enlarging your perspective and enabling you to understand others and expand your own vision.

At 4:28 PM EST, Mercury (ruling our intellect, communications, and perception) sextile Neptune (showing up as our imagination, compassion, and sensitivity) makes it easy for you to understand the perspective of those you meet and to speak directly to that perspective. Make the effort to show compassion with your words. Speak with sensitivity. There is a thread of poetry within your mind on Monday.

When bedtime comes, your emotions may feel excited and possibly, conflicted. Sleep will not come easily if the conversations begun earlier in the day swept you into imaginative states far outside your previous boundaries.

Don’t allow delusional thinking to wash away practical reality.

 

 

STRENGTH AND CLARITY

Tuesday, January 24, 2017:

Tuesday morning may bring with it a sense of unease, discomfort, and irritability. At 5:39 AM EST, the expansive Sagittarius Moon makes contact with restrictive Saturn. Your desire to expand beyond your present constraints feels thwarted.

At 12:34 PM EST, the Moon squares argumentative Mars; you can almost feel the collective growl of frustration and anger.

When the Moon enters Capricorn at 5:44 PM EST, you are able to settle down and focus on reality and your responsibilities as you move forward.

All in all, this is not a comfortable day. If you are able to find the ability to stay engaged without anger or resentment, this day offers an opportunity to release the past and move forward from a place of strength and clarity.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:34 PM EST until she interested half of corn at 5:44 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.

 

 

BRING PRACTICAL IDEAS TO THE TABLE

Wednesday, January 25, 2017:

Cigana by Artur Timóteo da Costa via Wiki Commons

Wednesday provides an interesting and workable day.  Before you wake up, Venus forms a conjunction with Chiron (the wounded healer), bringing beauty to the sore places within your soul. Beauty and grace sooth the deepest wounds. Remember, vulnerability holds great strength and moves us beyond understanding.

At 2:07 PM EST, the practical Capricorn Moon forms a sextile (showing up as an opportunity) to mystical Neptune encouraging us to understand that practical reality and mystical intuition support each other in ways that are not always obvious.

When the Capricorn Moon conjunct Mercury at 6:59 PM EST, the practicality of your thinking helps you to turn your ambition to your highest understanding of what is good and right in the world. Find areas where you can help others with your most practical ideas.

A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT

Thursday, January 26, 2017:

The disciplined Capricorn Moon encounters a series of challenging aspects on Thursday that will likely leave you feeling unsteady, anxious, and will have difficulty understanding your path forward.

Your best bet is to focus on your own ambitions, responsibilities, and necessary accomplishments. Follow your personal guidelines of integrity and, in all things, act with stable maturity.

It would be a mistake to look for fun, enjoyable endeavors on Thursday or to try to avoid work. Ending the day with a sense of accomplishment should be your goal from the start of the day.

At 3:05 PM EST, when the Moon forms a gentle sextile to lovely Venus you can anticipate easier energies to come into focus as long as you managed the morning without burning bridges or engaging in interpersonal difficulties.

Your goals for Thursday: Do not burn any bridges and end the day with a sense of accomplishment.

 

 

AQUARIUS NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED FOR THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY

Friday, January 27, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Friday morning, the Moon is in Aquarius. Generally speaking, Aquarius allows us healthy emotional detachment and objectivity.

However, due to a challenging square aspect between Venus and Saturn, this is a day of high-pressure and deep challenges to our values and relationships. Even the most optimistic of you may be challenged to maintain a light-hearted approach to the day.

Consider what action you need to take to deepen your commitment to your own true values. Remember, this does not indicate a bad day, but a day of serious action. It may be a very quiet action taken in the depth of your own soul.

At 7:08 PM EST, the dark phase of the Moon reaches its culmination at the New Moon at 8° Aquarius.

The Aquarius New Moon brings powerful energy to plant a seed for objectivity, progress, and revolutionary humanitarian efforts.

Set an intention regarding the ability to open your mind to innovations that will bring progressive humanitarian values forward.

Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming cycle. Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you aspire to create.
Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

Today’s New Moon at 8° Aquarius insists that you plant a seed of unconventional motion for the future and prepare yourself to grow in unconventional, humanitarian wisdom.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection)

From 2:18 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 3:37 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.

DEVELOP COURAGE TO SERVE HUMANITY

Saturday, January 28, 2017:

When you wake up Saturday morning, aggressive Mars has entered impulsive Aries. Mars is powerful, forceful, and combative in Aries (the sign he rules) where he will remain until March 9th.

Pay attention to the area in your chart that holds the sign of Aries. Be aware and attempt to mitigate issues of anger and aggression that show up in this area of your life. This is an area where you can be courageous in taking action over the coming 6 weeks.

However, I must also say, watch the news.  Where do you see impulsive action, selfishness, and aggression expressed in the outer world?

The progressive Aquarius Moon is with us throughout the day making lovely aspects to unconventional Uranus and philosophical Jupiter. This will be a delightful day to gather with like-minded folks. Direct your collective assertive energy in a manner that will support the greater humanitarian community.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection)

From 12:53 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 11:11 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.

 

 

POWER OF WORDS – POWERFUL THOUGHTS

Sunday, January 29, 2017:

Sleep late and enjoy a quiet morning on Sunday. The emotional Moon enters passive sensitive Pisces at 11:11 AM EST, asking that you pay attention to the development of your spirituality and compassion for self and others.

Additionally, Mercury conjunct Pluto at 3:21PM EST begins a new cycle of empowering the direction of your communications and your thinking. This is the time to begin a powerful study or profoundly deepen an existing one.

Serious power comes through your thoughts. Pay attention. Do some journal writing to contemplate the direction of your thoughts.

If you have plans to write this year, this is the day to begin the project!

A BIT VAGUE AND A LITTLE EDGY

Monday, January 9, 2017:

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

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

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

 

 

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED

Tuesday, January 10, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:39 PM EST until she enters Cancer at 5:48 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

POWER AND EXPANSION

Wednesday, January 11, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

 

CANCER FULL MOON; ENGAGE LOVE

Thursday, January 12, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:34 AM EST until she enters Leo at 7:08 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

REST – PLAY

Friday, January 13, 2017:

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

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

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

PLAY – REST

Saturday, January 14, 2017:

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

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

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:17 AM EST until she enters for go at 10:53 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT TURNS TO FLOW

Sunday, January 15, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS – EXPANDING WISDOM

Monday, November 21, 2016:

Monday begins with the Last Quarter Square of the lunar cycle – exact at 3:34 AM EST. With the Moon in expressive Leo and the Sun in secretive Scorpio, the week begins with an internal argument between your need for expression and your desire for privacy.

At 4:35 AM EST, the Moon enters critical Virgo bringing us into a day of analyzing and organizing in preparation for the week.

At 4:42 PM EST, the Sun having been in private Scorpio for the past month, happily enters freedom-seeking Sagittarius. You are ready to lighten up a bit, leave some intensity behind to explore new adventures and expanded perspectives. It feels like you can finally bring a larger perspective into view. You may be ready to explore new areas of personal growth and philosophical understanding.

At 10:08 PM EST, the Moon opposes elusive Neptune offering sweet slumber and dreams of future possibilities.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:34 AM EST until she enters for now at 4:35 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.

 

EXPAND YOUR THINKING

Tuesday, November 22, 2016:

Tuesday’s Virgo Moon is highly active throughout the morning. With a square to Mercury at 9:32 AM EST, the naturally critical Virgo Moon may have you questioning your ability to accomplish what needs to be done. From there, you may swing into an exaggerated sense of your own abilities with a trine to Pluto at 10:38 AM EST.

On the heels of that, the Moon squares Saturn at 12:42 PM EST, which brings you back to questioning your abilities. All of that back and forth activity may leave you feeling out of balance and uncertain of yourself.

However, if you can set your self criticism aside and simply pay attention to a higher vibration of energy, you will be able to engage with the Mercury sextile Jupiter aspect that is exact at 1:19 PM EST. Seek out a renewal of inspiration and intellectual excitement. Open your mind to new perspectives of thought. Look for conversations that will stretch your ways of thinking about and perceiving the world.

If you are alone, this is an afternoon for study. Read something that will open your mind to new possibilities. These conversations or expanded thinking will not come looking for you; it is important that you make the effort to seek it out.

Remember, a sextile guarantees nothing. A sextile offers an opportunity, a possibility. You must make the effort. If you miss the opportunity, you will be stuck in the moodiness of a highly self-critical day.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:42 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Libra on Wednesday at 2:41 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.

RELEASE RIGID THINKING

Wednesday, November 23, 2016:

Early Wednesday afternoon, with the meticulous Virgo Moon VOC*, Mercury, the planet of our thought processes connects with serious, authoritative Saturn. This significant transit may inhibit our conversations or somehow put a block on our ability to gain clarity in our thinking. Don’t be discouraged by this. Go inward and find your true authentic voice. Release rigidity of mind. This begins a cycle that asks you to stabilize your thoughts and get clear on what is most important in the manner in which you perceive your world.

Anything begun now has importance and long-term implications. Do not make decisions quickly or without significant for-thought.

At 2:41 PM EST, the Moon enters diplomatic Libra focusing us on compromise and diplomacy. You may want to focus your attention on stabilizing significant relationship dynamics.

At 6:56 PM EST, with the lovely Libra Moon sextile the exploratory Sagittarius Sun, it is time to look beyond where you have felt stuck. Go out into the world with an attitude of potential, possibility, and excitement.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:42 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Libra on Wednesday at 2:41 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.

 

SUPPORT EVOLVING CONSCIOUSNESS; HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thursday, November 24, 2016:

Thursday’s lovely Libra Moon tries valiantly to maintain equilibrium and a steady calm on your life and circumstances. However, there are serious challenges and powerful forces working below the surface.

At 6:00 PM EST, expansive Jupiter forms the first of three waning square aspects to transformative Pluto. The energy of this transit has been building for some weeks, peaks now and again at the next two occurrences – March 30, 2017 & August 4, 2017. This difficult transit brings your attention to focus on a powerful long-term process involving the expansion of power and hidden forces. We clearly see where this is playing out in the outer world and in our political system.

Pay attention, also, to where and how it is impacting your personal life. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter) or significant points (North Node, South Node, Midheaven, Ascendant) between 12 & 17 degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) this will be particularly pronounced in your life.

Be aware of your own tendency (or others) to use excessive force in order to gain power. You must consciously build on kindness and compassion for all humans. This is not a game. We MUST practice the development of evolved humanity beginning with ourselves. There are forces that are utilizing these energies destructively. It is your job to counter that negativity in your own life circumstances and to dig deeply to challenge beliefs that stand in the way of kindness and the growth of evolutionary consciousness.

Contact me for a consultation to discuss how this is impacting your life. I have heard from many of you who are struggling with sadness, fear, anxiety, and anger due to the changes in our political system. Working with your chart will offer perspective and some clarity on the path forward. Use the code ElectionStress for a full 20% discount.

 

FACE YOUR INNER WORK

Friday, November 25, 2016:

On Friday, Venus, the planet of personal values, money, and pleasure, joins the conversation that Pluto and Jupiter began on Thursday. Lovely Venus conjunct powerful Pluto at 6:49 AM EST and squares overextended Jupiter at 8:44 AM EST.

Watch how values and money are highlighted in issues of power and control. Consider your own use and understanding of money and other things of value. Do you harbor private beliefs, or are you behaving in ways, that do not support your highest good and integrity? Work on these issues today. Be aware of greed and underhanded dealings that are rotting our culture to the core. Make sure you are personally managing your own love and money with squeaky clean integrity. The reflection is all around you and your work must start with yourself. It always begins as an inside job.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:53 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 3:02 AM EST on Saturday. 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.

INSIGHTS COME THROUGH ANXIETY OR EXCITEMENT

Saturday, November 26, 2016:

When we wake up on Saturday, the Moon is in introspective Scorpio.  Look deeply into your own psychological patterns to understand how to work with any fears that may arise throughout the day.  Be patient when dealing with the difficulties your friends and loved ones may be dealing with. Find inner strength and seek deep insights.

At 8:37 AM EST, perceptive Mercury trine unconventional Uranus bringing insights through anxiety or excitement. Mercury is the planet of mind and communication, Uranus is considered ‘The Awakener’. Allow your mind to open to unsettling original thoughts. Your conversations may surprise everyone.

When you head to bed Saturday night, you may have a very different set of ideas than when you awoke Saturday morning. Allow defiance and individuality while maintaining kindness and consideration of how differently we each experience the world.

 

REST – HIBERNATE

Sunday, November 27, 2016:

Rest on Sunday in deep quiet. If you are able to sleep late, you can avoid the one cranky transit of the day. At 6:25 AM EST, the Moon squares angry Mars, putting you on the defense. Allow that energy to work itself out in your dreams.

Later in the day, the Moon forms a sweet aspect to Venus and Pluto allowing you to rest at the end of a stressful week. Time alone is recommended. You likely feel the need to hibernate before the new lunar cycle begins on Monday with the Sagittarius New Moon.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:48 PM EST until she pictures Sagittarius at 3:46 PM EST on Monday.

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.
