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.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: January 16, 2017 through January 22, 2017

The biggest news this week astrologically is the movement of the Sun (the core energy of our Universe) out of Capricorn and into Aquarius on Thursday, January 19th at 4:23 PM EST.

Angel of Day 168 by Kontrola via Wiki Commons

Angel of Day 168 by Kontrola via Wiki Commons

In the interest of full disclosure, I absolutely LOVE the sign of Aquarius! With seven planets in my natal 11th house, I consider myself an honorary Aquarian even though I have no actual planets in the sign.

So let’s talk a little bit about Aquarius.

Aquarius is the sign of innovation and genius. Don’t think of the genius of Aquarius as an intensely high-level of intellect, but rather, genius as the ability for the mind to go to places it was never taught to go.

Aquarius is the energy that reaches out to the future regardless of how the past may want to hold on to an outdated model. Aquarius is able to cleanly detach from what holds it back from the future.

Without the energy of Aquarius, we would be firmly rooted in the dark ages. Aquarius is a sign that sees the greatest perspective for humanity. Aquarius is not a personal sign; it is not warm and fuzzy.

Aquarius looks to improve conditions of the collective, even when it must leave individuals to fend for them selves.

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

Monday, January 16, 2017:

The week starts with the Moon in perfectionist Virgo. You may wake up in the morning with all kinds of thoughts and plans that will help you reach some elevated state of your perceived potential. Virgo sees its potential clearly and longs to reach a perfected state of that potential. This is generally far easier said than done.

As the day begins, the Moon is highly empowered in a trine aspect to powerful Pluto at 6:40 AM EST. You will feel self-confident and engaged as you move forward into the day. By mid afternoon, with the opposition to impulsive Mars, you may be confronted or aggravated by someone getting in the way of your perfect plan.

The evening doesn’t necessarily get any easier as the Virgo Moon squares melancholic Saturn at 5:13 PM EST allowing restrictions and duties to follow us home.

At 9:13 PM EST, determined Mars connects with Chiron, the planet of wounding and healing. This offers an opportunity for you to see how your fears keep you from your desires. This is an evening to spend in contemplation, consider the process of untangling your fears. Be kind to yourself on Monday evening. A walk in nature or a hot bath will help ease you toward bedtime.

 

FLOWERS – DELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Tuesday, January 17, 2017:

Tuesday begins with a lovely trine aspect from the orderly Virgo Moon and the Sun in ambitious Capricorn. This is a free flow of grounded, stabilizing energy. After a brief VOC, the Moon enters charming Libra at 6:16 AM EST.

What can you do on Tuesday to help establish diplomacy and cooperation with your coworkers and others whom you engage with during the day?

At 1:38 PM EST, you may encounter a challenge to your desire for social harmony (the emotional Moon is square Mercury, the planet of intellect). Allow any negativity or cynicism from others to roll off your back. It is not worth a negative comeback. Go about your day, this challenge will pass quickly will not last as long as you do not engage it.

The rest of the day should prove to be relatively sweet and uneventful. Enjoy a romantic encounter or time with a close friend in the evening. Bring pleasure into your life. Bring home flowers! A little beauty and color will go a long ways to bring delight into your home and cheer up your life.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:10 AM EST until 6:16 AM EST when she enters Libra. 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.

ENJOY THE MORNING, THEN GET SERIOUS

Wednesday, January 18, 2017:

Your experience of Wednesday will likely start out calm as it is a very quiet day astrologically. The Moon remains in graceful Libra throughout the day encouraging the creation of beauty and a deep desire for harmony.

However, as the day progresses be aware of power dynamics (Moon square coercive Pluto at 4:24 PM EST) and the potential for anxiety (Moon oppose defiant Uranus at 10:42 PM EST).

Consider deeply your circumstances and those you encounter. Along with these clear stressors, you can probably feel the building of tension as we approach a square aspect (challenging) between Mars (the planet of direct energy, strength, and anger) and Saturn (the planet of limitations, restriction, and duty). This aspect will not be exact until Thursday at 4:15 AM EST (see Thursday’s post).

Wednesday is also the final full day with the Sun in authoritative Capricorn. Enjoy the steadfast stability and sense of overriding ambition that has characterized the past month.

 

SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS – A SENSE OF REBELLION

Thursday, January 19, 2017:

On Thursday, consider how you are pursuing your goals. At 4:15 AM EST, determined Mars squares authoritative Saturn. What initial action did you take, or seed did you plant with an eventual goal in mind, in late August of 2016? What action needs to be taken now to ensure that you are moving toward the desired result or the healthy growth of the seed planted at that time?

If you feel greatly agitated or somehow restricted at this time, consider how focused or scattered your efforts are or have been. Perhaps, it is time to release some internal expectations in order to focus on what is most important. The full results will be evident at the very end of May 2017.

At 4:23 PM EST, the Sun (the core energy of our world) enters unpredictable, progressive, and humanitarian Aquarius. Over the coming month, you will be inspired to approach life with less emotion and more objectivity. This is the time to listen closely to your internal “Different Drummer”.

Quickly on the heels of the Sun’s entrance into Aquarius, at 5:10 PM EST, the Moon enters penetrating Scorpio bringing a very different feel to the evening.

Right on its heels, the Moon squares the Sun for her Last Quarter Phase. Here, we are challenged to release whatever is holding us back from appropriate steps forward for innovative growth.

This will be a challenging day for yourself and those you encounter. When you are in the company of others, remember this. Offer kindness and practical support to those in your sphere of influence. We are all in this together.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:55 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 5:10 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.

 

CONNECT DEEPLY

Friday, January 20, 2017:

Friday morning offers you an opportunity to profoundly deepen your attitude or approach to that which you value highly in your life. At 8:56 AM EST, lovely Venus forms a sextile aspect to transformative Pluto. This opportunity may be about intimate love relationships or it could be about money and other physical possessions of beauty and value.

On November 25th,  you planted a seed of profound deep love, value, or desire. Now, you are encouraged to explore different ways to help that seed grow. This is an aspect that helps you explore and discover a way to encourage the growth of passion, desire, and beauty.

The powerful Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine to mystical Neptune at 1:50 PM EST bringing a flow of magic, devotion, and sensitivity to the passion that is available throughout the rest of the day. Connect deeply.

RELEASE CONTROL

Saturday, January 21, 2017:

Saturday is a simple day of deepening connections. The profoundly powerful Scorpio Moon forms lovely aspects to the planet of power (Pluto), the planet of love and beauty (Venus), and the power of action and assertiveness (Mars) throughout the day.

Our hearts feel rich and deep.  For this day, we understand the need for sensitivity, understanding, and the releasing of control.

We are able to allow deep introspection to support the release of anger, forgiveness of hidden forces, manipulations, and mysterious power grabs.

We come together to support each other in the vision of transformation ahead. We stand where we stand and must move forward from the reality of where we are. My love is with each and every one of you

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:25 PM EST until she interests Sagittarius on Sunday at 5:46 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.

 

FUN ADVENTURES

Sunday, January 22, 2017:

When we awaken on Sunday morning, we are greeted with the Moon in adventurous, fun-loving Sagittarius.

At 11:30 AM EST, the optimistic Sagittarius Moon forms a delightful sextile aspect to the unpredictable Aquarius Sun.

Sit down with a friend or partner and plan a vacation or at least a weekend road trip. This is a delightful day for gathering with like-minded friends, other social activities, or a road trip!

Find a fun adventure, bring a few friends; whatever you do, don’t waste this day!

ANXIETY & EXCITEMENT

Monday, December 5, 2016:

This week starts quietly with no major aspects to consider. The unconventional Aquarius Moon makes her final aspect, a sextile to eccentric Uranus at 6:23 AM EST. With such an extended period of quiet, we are left with a sense of that final aspect throughout the day.  This could suggest a day of anxiety, nervousness, or excitement without fully understanding where it is coming from.

Feeling unsettled is exacerbated by the upcoming sextile between Mars and Uranus that will be exact on Tuesday. Channeling anxiety into unusual creativity and inspired conversations will provide not only a useful distraction but will also inspire new understanding and growth.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:23 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 11:31 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.

 

 

PLANNING AHEAD

Tuesday, December 6, 2016:

The dreamy, mystical Pisces Moon would love to offer you a day of soft sensitivity and dreaminess on Tuesday. You may even feel your heart turn toward that passive place, and yet, Mars and Uranus have a very different idea in mind.

On Tuesday, Mars, the planet of dynamic action, forms a sextile aspect to Uranus, the planet of unconventional humanitarian change –change that supports the collective. I can’t help but wonder how this will play out in the news this week.

However, for our purposes, let’s stick with looking at where this touches your individual life. Think about what in your life is pushing you to new unexpected action. A sextile aspect (60°) offers an opportunity to explore, to be curious, and to look clearly at possibilities that are presented.

Is there an action that you are considering that makes your heart beat faster?

The cycle between Mars and Uranus is a cycle of pushing yourself to take unusual and possibly, defiant action that supports growth and expansion of humanitarian ideals.

Did you begin something dynamic and unusual in March 2015? That was the beginning of the cycle that is now coming to a close. It is now time to plan and look forward to the new cycle of developing courage and independence that begins in late February of 2017. The attention to any inspirations that arise or anything unusual you hear or see. The most unusual possibilities are sometimes the best to pay attention to.

If you are interested in a deeper understanding of how this plays out in your personal life, contact me for a consultation.

 

 

STAND UP

Wednesday, December 7, 2016:

Wednesday brings us yet another day with a very long VOC* Moon in Pisces. The Moon is considered to be VOC* between the time it forms its final major aspect to another planet in one sign to when she enters the next sign. This time is best utilized in quiet contemplation or routine tasks.

On Wednesday, the Moon’s final aspect is a highly disheartening square to Saturn. This brings a dour feel to the day, as we must work to resist feelings of self-recrimination and depression. Luckily, Moon transits come and go quickly and this will be out of the way before you know it. 😉

Wednesday also brings us the First Quarter Moon, suggesting a struggle between your search for expansion and your desire to remain in deep sensitivity. Consider what seed you planted at the New Moon (last Wednesday) and take action to move that desire and intention forward.

The unusual excitement of Wednesday occurs at 9:51 AM EST when lovely Venus enters rebellious Aquarius where she will remain until January 3, 2017. Venus entering Aquarius will wake you (and us) up to our unconventional humanitarian and even revolutionary values. You are not content to sit home and drink tea with your friends. You are far more likely at this time to understand and follow the need to stand up for your deepest values and beliefs in a direct, innovative, and progressive manner. Your thoughts may turn away from individual love and connection in order to connect and support the greater good of humankind.

Protests and upheaval will be a part of the upcoming weeks. Aquarius must stand up for what is right; Venus refers to your personal values. We must, at this point in time, standup powerfully for our deep values and beliefs.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:05 AM EST until Thursday morning at 5:15 AM EST when she enters Aries.

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.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything. Allow more joy and love into your life.

Make your appointment today! 

 

 

COURAGEOUS BELIEFS

Thursday, December 8, 2016:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in dynamic, impulsive Aries. Aries represents the archetypes of the Warrior, the Leader, and the Pioneer. With a sextile aspect formed to Venus at 7:01 AM EST, you are presented with an opportunity to put your most assertive, courageous energy to the service of your beliefs. Several clichés come to mind: “Put your money where your mouth is” and ”Walk the talk”.

You will be given the opportunity on Thursday to speak clearly regarding what is important to you and stand firmly and with conviction in that reality.

At 6:44 PM EST, the Pisces Moon squares thoughtful Mercury, possibly indicating arguments and misunderstanding. Yes, say what must be said. Remember to be conscious of the tone in your voice and other nonverbal cues. Even in a misunderstanding or argument, it is your responsibility to remain respectful and kind.

 

 

EXPAND YOUR PERSPECTIVE

Friday, December 9, 2016:

The Moon remains in hotheaded Aries throughout Friday. This is an active day with the Moon forming a variety of both lighthearted and stressful aspects.  This may well show up as a wild grab bag of a day, presenting you with smooth flowing stability, excitement, and moments of stressful aggravation.

At 4:39 PM EST, the Sagittarius Sun forms a trine (an aspect of excitement and opportunity) with expansive Jupiter. Keep your eyes open in anticipation of possibilities being presented that will open you to a newly expanded view of your life and circumstances. This puts a high positive spin on the day even in the midst of certain momentary aggravations.

Consider dancing with friends or planning an upcoming road trip adventure. Invite a few folks to join you that are new to your group of friends. It is a great day and evening to get a new point of view and an outside perspective.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:07PM EST until 7:41 AM EST Saturday morning when she enters Taurus.

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.

FACING RESPONSIBILITIES; ADJUSTING DREAMS

Saturday, December 10, 2016:

When you wake up on Saturday morning, set aside any unrealistic early-morning dreams (logical Mercury is sextile elusive Neptune at 3:25 AM EST). This brings your attention to a dream or story that began in mid-March of 2016.  At that time, you may have been telling yourself a story that was not terribly realistic. Since that time, you have worked with that story and now must explore new ways to direct the storyline.  Some part of that dream must be released and adjusted in order to begin anew in March of 2017.

At 6:51 AM EST, the Sagittarius Sun joins with restrictive Saturn to begin a new cycle of bringing sharp clarity to your responsibilities. This is a time to look reality clearly in the eye. If you know where (what house) 18° Sagittarius falls in your chart, you will know what area of your life is asking for your effort and hard work. If you look inside your heart, you will know what area is calling you to this serious consideration!

You are now asked to plant a seed of intention, the intention to make serious stabilization a top priority for the upcoming year. What are you being asked to commit to? Plant the seed of that commitment. Prepare yourself to work hard over the coming year (this is a one year cycle) for your deepest desires.

The Moon enters stabilizing Taurus at 7:41 AM EST. Enjoy sensual pleasures, get in touch with nature, get or give a massage, or eat good food. Spend time with folks who offer steadfast comfort. Bring comfort to those you love and all who you encounter.

Saturday offers a wonderful night for lovemaking with a committed partner. Casual intimate connections will be unsatisfying for everyone involved, if you are not in a committed partnership, go home alone.

 

 

A SPARK OF EXCITEMENT

Sunday, December 11, 2016:

Sunday begins with a lovely trine from the Taurus Moon to transformative Pluto. You may feel powerful, sensual, and stable as you move into the day. As the Moon continues through Taurus, it is easy to focus on simple and sensual pleasures.

However, as the day progresses, you may feel anxiety or excitement, just out of reach, right around the corner. What you are feeling is a powerful trine aspect between the vital energy of the Sun and the defiant and exciting energy of Uranus. As the day moves forward, you feel that spark of Uranus in the air.

Again, you may feel that you are waiting for some changing reality without knowing where it is coming from. Keep on the alert for the next 24 hours, watch for unexpected flashes of excitement, anticipation, and innovative ideas. Pay attention to what calls to you. This is a beautiful flow of creativity and excitement. Look for what excites you!

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.

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

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

RELEASE EMOTIONAL VOLATILITY

Monday, July 25, 2016:

The week begins with the aggressive Aries Moon trine Saturn offering determination and the ability to push yourself forward with conviction. As the day begins, we feel stable, rock solid, and sure of ourselves.

At 11:30 AM EDT, with the Moon square Pluto, anger may rear its head with potential battles and dark power dynamics coming to the table. If you find yourself justifying your anger, you are on the wrong path. Allow it to pass by.

This is just another Moon transit and will not hang around if you don’t feed it with your attention. Release emotional volatility.

By afternoon or early evening, the harsh energy has passed. The Sun trine both diplomatic Venus and conversational Mercury in Leo, your fiery, expressive emotions easily feed your thoughts and values.

Seek out places to express your beliefs and values with dramatic playfulness. On Monday, your communications may have a way of being reflected back to you in a manner that moves the dial forward supporting your deepest desires.

 

 

SEEK SOLID, PLAYFUL CREATIVITY

Tuesday, July 26, 2016:

Tuesday begins with the Moon still in assertive Aries and we are experiencing a good deal of anxiety as she conjunct Uranus in the early morning hours.

As the Moon enters steadfast Taurus at 11:38 AM EDT, we return to a calm emotional state. We are happy to settle in and engage with others with patience and an added dose of kindness.

The Last Quarter Moon is exact at 7:00 PM EDT. The Leo Sun and the Taurus Moon are energetically at cross-purposes. The Taurus Moon simply wants to stay home and enjoy comfort and stability while the Leo Sun wants to head into the world to shine and dance. If you can bring these two energies together into some form of solid and yet, playful creativity, you may enjoy a delightful evening.

The Moon is VOC* from 2:19 AM EDT until 11:38 AM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, and not bad. It simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

SUDDEN AWARENESS & EXCITEMENT IN LEARNING

Wednesday, July 27, 2016:

At 3:44 AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our minds and thinking, forms a trine aspect to Uranus. Don’t worry, you may sleep through the exact moment of the aspect but you won’t miss out on this. If you were paying attention, it was fully in the air on Tuesday evening and it will be with us throughout the day.

When Mercury and Uranus come together, we want to keep our eyes open for sudden awareness, unusual communications, or profound unexpected light bulb moments. The cycle between Mercury and Uranus began at the end of March 2016. What began at that time that is now resulting in the sudden surprising awareness? Continue to open your mind to new ideas and ways of being in this world. Change can come suddenly.

When the Moon trine Pluto at 2:12 PM EDT, we can tap into great determination and the ability to power through any obstacles that hold us back.

There is a great deal of intensity within this day and we are relieved when it relaxes into easy pleasure as the stable Taurus Moon trines expansive Jupiter at 11:44 PM EDT.

 

 

ANTAGONISM TURNS TO CURIOSITY

Thursday, July 28, 2016:

Thursday begins with full-on cranky energy as the Taurus Moon squares Mercury (8:17 AM EDT) and opposes Mars (11:13 AM EDT). We may feel antagonistic or encounter others who approached us with resistance, discord, or hostility. If you do encounter that energy, don’t take it too seriously. It will pass and most likely has little, if anything, to do with you.

When the Moon enters Gemini at 2:17 PM EDT, your communications become easier. You may be curious about the difficult communications of the morning, and you are ready to have a friendly open conversation to clear the air.

The Moon is VOC* from 11:13 AM EDT until 2:17 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

 

SPARK CREATIVITY

Friday, July 29, 2016:

We begin Friday with a light, active, and curious mind that is somehow uncertain as to its intended place. On the one hand, we want to look at reality and take responsibility for our current place in the world. On the other hand, we want to drift on our imagination and dream of escape routes.

How to honor both of these perspectives? Give the world permission not to make sense; embrace dichotomy. Trying to analyze our perspectives, our lives, and our current path will not lead to understanding.

The reality of our circumstances is, at this time, is at cross-purposes to other more intangible realities that are equally relevant. Allow yourself to hold multiple perspectives.

At 4:48 PM EDT, Mercury square Mars. Are you ready to debate the issues at hand? How do you work with a mind that is hotly aggressive even as you are straddling multiple realities? Utilize the energy of the Gemini Moon to gather and work with the ideas and beliefs on both sides. Work to bring steadfast language to your frustrations and energy to our thoughts. None of us have the full range of understanding and the world is far more complex than we can possibly understand.

At 5:06 PM EDT, Uranus turns retrograde at 24 degrees Aries. If you have personal points or planets between 23 – 25degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), you are likely in a state of extreme excitement or anxiety.

Look to the house that contains Uranus in your natal cart and the house that has Aquarius on the cusp to understand the areas of your life that are being intensified. Allow unusual innovations to spark your creativity.

LEAVE THE DRAMATIC THINKING BEHIND

Saturday, July 30, 2016:

As the Moon happily rattles through Gemini in the early part of the day, we can engage easily in social niceties and simple conversations. At 2:18 PM EDT, Mercury leaves the excitement of Leo behind to enter the analytical sign of Virgo. Mercury is delighted to be in Virgo, leaving the drama behind in exchange for more discerning and thoughtful intellectual pursuits. Whatever excitement has been on your mind over the past few weeks can now come forth in a more practical manner.

The Moon enters Cancer at 5:08 PM EDT. This is not the best night to go in search of social excitement. We are more inclined to seek emotional security and nurturance. Enjoy an evening at home, close to family and loved ones.

The Moon is VOC* from 7:46 AM EDT until 5:08 PM EDT. Remember, there will be no result from anything that is begun during a VOC* Moon. This is neutral, and simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have an impact of any significance.

 

 

FLOW TURNS TO STRUGGLE

Sunday, July 31, 2016:

With the gift of a flowing trine aspect between the sensitive Cancer Moon and dreamy Neptune, we are presented with a day of sweetness. Don’t put any high expectations on the day but allow yourself full enjoyment. Spend time at the beach, in a body of water, listen to music, read poetry, or meditate. The softer sides of your soul can be fed fully throughout the day.

At 8:03 PM EDT with the Cancer Moon forming an opposition to Pluto, deep troublesome family issues may upend all that ease. Our sensitivity explodes and we must guard against defensiveness and power struggles. Bring kindness and patience to the table. Perhaps time alone in deep contemplation would be our best use of the evening.

Head to sleep early as Monday morning will bring with it a new perspective and the potential of much innovation and excitement.
