Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: June 26, 2017 through July 2, 2017

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.

 

 

Have you studied astrology for years but are still unclear about how to have a meaningful conversation with a client? Are you contemplating working with clients but unsure how to move forward? I would be honored to help you move toward your desire to help others with the powerful language of astrology.

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.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

A PLAYFUL, FUN EVENING

Monday, May 29, 2017:

When you begin the day on Monday, do your best to shake off the frustration and possible judgmental tendencies that are reflected in the opposition from agitated Mars to somber Saturn at 2:54 AM EDT.

This transit calls your attention back to late August of 2016 when these two planets joined together to begin a cycle of energizing and taking action on your responsibilities. What did you begin at that time that embodied serious action or effort? The cycle began at 9 degrees Sagittarius (on August 24, 2016); where does that fall in your chart? Now you are able to see how well you managed the hard work and responsibilities necessary.

When the Moon enters blithe Leo at 8:11 AM EDT, you are ready to let go of resentments, grievances, or dissatisfaction. It is time to enjoy a cheerful, frisky, and playful day. The Leo Moon forms a sweet sextile aspect to the chatty Gemini Sun just as you are wrapping up the day. If you have a playmate, make the effort to enjoy a good-natured lively romp, with lots of laughter, before sleep.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:58 AM EDT until 8:11 AM EDT when she enters Leo. 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.

 

 

UNUSUAL ACTION

Tuesday, May 30, 2017:

Tuesday begins with an early morning sextile from the Moon in spirited Leo to expansive Jupiter who is still in cooperative Libra. You feel positive and generous toward your loved ones and are ready to face the day with a smile.

You may struggle later in the day when the Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mercury (the planet of the mind) in stable Taurus. There may be a disagreement between those who are feeling playfully creative and those who want to build something solid and lasting. Who gets the last word? Allow each other to hold very different ideas and opinions; accommodate each other even if it seems counterintuitive. The payoff will be well worth it.

At 10:39 PM EDT, ‘take no prisoners’ Mars forms a sextile aspect to revolutionary and unpredictable Uranus. This brings the suggestion of excitement and the possibility of unusual and sudden action. Did you begin an unusual development in the last week of February 2017? If you can identify what began then, you will know what you want to pay attention to now.

Explore unusual ideas; an opportunity is presented and you should take the initial steps that will bring about great change in early December of 2017. Thinking beyond ourselves, we can see possibilities here regarding our political dilemmas.

 

 

MORNING FLOW – AFTERNOON EFFORT

Mrs Langtry by Edward Poynter via SightsWithin

Wednesday, May 31, 2017:

The word of the day is flow, defined as, “to move along steadily and continuously in a current.” Allow your life, drive, and communications to flow steadily forward on Wednesday. There is no need to push or try to control the direction of any project or communication, simply allow it to happen.

The day begins with a trine (flowing) aspect from the playful Leo Moon to stable Saturn and excitable Uranus forming a Grand Trine. A grand trine is a planetary pattern composed of three or more planets located at the apex of an imaginary equilateral triangle. In the case of this Grand Trine, the planets involved are all in the element of Fire, bringing enthusiasm and creativity to the table. This is a harmonious and stable configuration.

Further increasing the positivity of the day, Mercury, the planet of communication and thought processes, also forms an easy trine aspect to powerful Pluto (8:02 AM EDT) allowing your conversations and written communications to be easily expressed and understood. If you have an important issue that needs to be discussed, questions to ask, or something that must be revealed, this is the day to allow it to come naturally and simply into the conversation.

If there is something that you need to reveal but would rather it not have much impact, have the conversation before 12:15 PM EDT. Have the talk after 12:15 PM EDT, if you want what you say to make a difference going forward.

At 12:15 PM EDT, the Moon enters industrious, efficient Virgo inviting us to settle into an afternoon of productive work. Put in the effort and you will accomplish a great deal. However, keep your expectations reasonable. You don’t want to end up beating yourself up at the end of the day because you didn’t accomplish everything! Whatever you get done is GOOD ENOUGH! Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:14 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 12:15 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*m 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.

 

 

STABILITY AND GRACE

Thursday, June 1, 2017:

Thursday begins with the meticulous Virgo Moon forming the First Quarter Moon phase to the chatty Gemini Sun. This may pit your industrious dedication to work against your desire for simple social connections. Should you get your work done or go out and chat over coffee with a friend? Not always an easy decision on a day like this!

At 11:23 AM EDT, you will find it easier to settle on one direction or the other as Venus, the planet of pleasure and social graces, forms a flowing trine aspect to Saturn, the planet of responsibility and determination. Whatever choice you make will deliver stable benefits and grace under this influence. You can bring beauty and style to your work or responsibility and structure to your social interactions.

At 2:15 PM EDT, when the Moon opposes elusive Neptune you will want to take a break to meditate or simply daydream. Allow compassion to color your interactions with others as you move into the evening hours.

 

 

BEST BET: VULNERABILITY

Friday, June 2, 2017:

The day begins with action-oriented Mars in flighty Gemini forming an uncomfortable square to Chiron, the planet of deep wounding. You may feel tired and unsure of your ability to function, given the reality of deep personal trauma. Troublesome conversations may feel initially excruciating, however, do not avoid these conversations. Allowing deep vulnerability has the potential to bring powerful healing under this influence.

Friday’s Virgo Moon is not feeling as helpful or friendly as she did on Thursday. First, she squares melancholy Saturn at 11:22 AM EDT, followed by another challenging square to impulsive, angry Mars at 5:49 PM EDT.  This can easily be expressed in hurt feelings and defensiveness. Again, your best bet is to allow yourself to be open and amenable, to not jump to your own defense but simply let the moment pass. Three deep cleansing breaths will bring you back to equilibrium.

At 8:04 PM EDT, the Moon enters Libra bringing your attention to the need for interdependence and graceful cooperation.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:49 PM EDT until she enters Libra at 8:04 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.

ANTICIPATION – EXCITEMENT – JOY

Saturday, June 3, 2017:

While we slept (at 3:31 AM EDT), harmonious Venus joined with defiant, inspirational Uranus at 27 degrees Aries. This is the beginning of a cycle of anticipation, excitement, or breakdown regarding love, resources, and beauty (all Venus issues). If nothing new is possible, breakdown is inevitable.

Plant a seed to grow with non-conformity in love, originality in beauty, or inspiration toward the growth or use of money and resources. This ends the cycle of these same issues that began on April 22, 2016. Whatever began then now completes, allowing an entirely new direction or simply an upgrade to a higher level of expression.

At 12:12 PM EDT, the all-powerful Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to expansive Jupiter allowing you to see your life from an extraordinarily larger than life perspective. Look for experiences in the everyday that open your heart to joy, wisdom, and optimism.

Throughout the day, the Moon continues through lovely Libra forming positive aspects along the way to both Jupiter and the Sun. Enjoy social connections that bring charm, romance, and diplomatic grace.

 

 

SLIPPERY ILLUSIONS

Sunday, June 4, 2017:

Don’t be surprised if you wake up Sunday morning surrounded by an air of confusion, bewilderment, or deep compassion toward others. At 12:13 PM EDT, the rational Gemini Sun forms a stressful square aspect to elusive Neptune. Your imagination is heightened and yet, it is slippery and illusory, making it not terribly workable. Spend time in meditation or simply listening to music and allowing yourself to dream.

At 12:15 PM EDT, Mars leaves perceptible, talkative Gemini behind and enters protective, inward Cancer. Mars, the planet of courage and initiative, is uncomfortable in any Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces), as he wants to take direct action with assertiveness to get what he wants. In Cancer, Mars is unable to take such an approach as he runs into issues of mood swings and touchiness. You may notice yourself tending more toward defensiveness and being overly protective toward those you love. Mars will remain in Cancer until he enters dramatic Leo on July 20, 2017.

The Libra Moon will assist you in maintaining balance throughout the day. At 9:22 PM EDT, as the Moon sextile Saturn, you can settle into a level headed stability and a good night’s sleep that will support you in moving into the coming week!

EXPRESS KINDNESS

Monday, May 1, 2017:

The week begins with a continued sense of sensitivity which held sway through most of last weekend. Getting up and out of bed on Monday morning may present a challenge. With the Moon continuing through sensitive, emotional, and moody Cancer, you may notice yourself either wearing your heart on your sleeve or trying desperately to hide that vulnerability.

The aspects formed by the tender Cancer Moon on Monday bring up the difficult and sometimes dark side of family and the connection we have to the past. This is a day to spend time in deep reflection. Sitting with a skilled therapist or a truly trusted friend may bring powerful insights to your most powerful inner processes.

Pay attention to how you treat others. Notice how you treat the waitress or the grocery store cashier. Make eye contact, offer a word of kindness, and acknowledge your shared humanity with that person. Everyone you encounter feels the same vulnerability that you recognize in yourself. Express kindness.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:23 PM EDT until shortly after midnight when she enters Leo. 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.

 

 

ENTHUSIASM & SELF-EXPRESSION

Tuesday, May 2, 2017:

When you wake up on Tuesday morning, you will notice that the sensitivity of the previous days are behind you. You are ready to get up and get started and ready to enter a day of self-expression and enthusiasm. Notice the areas in your life where you want to show up, to be seen as the truly authentic, fun person you know yourself to be. This is a day to allow your playful, creative expression to exert itself. However, bedtime may bring a different energy; you may feel less enthusiastic and even a bit low.

At 10:47 PM EDT, the playful Leo Moon forms a difficult square aspect to the stable Taurus Sun. This is the First Quarter Square of the Lunar Cycle.

Consider the seed that you planted at the New Moon on Wednesday, April 26th, now you can expect to encounter a restriction or blockage in that cycle. It is likely to be a relatively minor issue on the path; the important thing is to take a step forward to move beyond the restriction. What action needs to be taken to move your process in the direction you want to go? Consider that question as you fall asleep Tuesday night and you will have your answer and be ready to take action on Wednesday.

MOVING FORWARD – MERCURY DIRECT

Wednesday, May 3, 2017:

Oh, Happy Day!                                                                                                 At 12:33 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet that represents the way we think, communicate, and share information turns direct. Now, it is finally time to begin new projects, say what needs and wants to be said, and generally move forward more easily in every area of your life.

At 8:50 PM EDT, the Sun forms a lovely sextile aspect to dreamy Neptune. This offers an opportunity to engage deeply in intangible levels of imagination or mystical awareness. Take time to meditate, get lost in a good movie, music, or simply space out! Don’t hit the bottle or get lost in other unhealthy states of consciousness.

The dramatic Leo Moon forms a Grand Trine aspect configuration with unusual Uranus and hardworking Saturn late evening today/ early Thursday morning. This expands our understanding of both the enthusiastic excitement and the stable hard work necessary for the movement we need to continue moving forward.

Envision an enlightened future and commit to the requisite elbow grease.

 

 

 

DEDICATE YOURSELF TO SERVICE

Thursday, May 4, 2017:

When you get up on Thursday morning, you may be aware of the emotional shift that occurred while you slept. The Moon left playful Leo behind and entered competent, efficient Virgo at 5:47 AM EDT.

Thursday should provide you with a day to get a tremendous amount of work done, although you may need to remind yourself not to get too stuck in the details.

Mercury is now moving forward, the Moon is in dedicated hard-working Virgo, and there are no major aspects to get in the way of accomplishment. The work you do today must ultimately be in service to others. If you engage in too much self-focus, you may find yourself feeling fussy, critical, or judgmental of others. Keep an eye on that and get to work.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from shortly after midnight (12:35 AM EDT) until she enters Virgo at 5:47 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.

 

PLAN FOR ACHIEVEMENT

Friday, May 5, 2017:

Friday brings another day of powerfully successful effort as the Moon continues through purposeful, devoted Virgo. You may want to get to the office early and plan to stay late!

At 10:15 AM EDT, the Virgo Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to the grounded Taurus Sun. Then, at 5:57 PM EDT, the Moon forms a trine to Pluto. This creates a powerful Grand Trine configuration in the practical Earth signs.

Set practical, productive goals and expect great achievement. You can expect powerful support for whatever goals you have set. Plan accordingly.

RELATIONSHIP CONSIDERATIONS

Saturday, May 6, 2017:

Saturday morning may find you having a difficult time pulling yourself away from the work mode you have been so engaged in over the past few days, or perhaps, you are simply recovering from all that work.

With the steadfast Virgo Moon forming a difficult square aspect to Saturn at 8:43 AM EDT, you may find it useful to accomplish various tasks early in the day or simply rest with the intention of conserving your energy.

You may feel that the day doesn’t really get started until the Moon shifts into harmonious, beauty seeking Libra at 2:21 PM EDT. The afternoon and evening are best spent with close, intimate partners in the service of beauty or simple connection. Go to a museum, create beauty in your home, or seek it in the world around you. Focus on consciously creating your closest relationships.

Consider your most intimate partnership to be separate from you or the other person, a separate entity that you each must love, care for, and take into consideration. Make a plan for Saturday night that will feed the needs of the relationship itself.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:43 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 2:21 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.

 

 

HARMONIOUS CONNECTIONS

Sunday, May 7, 2017:

Sunday brings us to a day full of the potential of energized social interactions and inspired connections. At 11:57 PM EDT, the lovely Libra Moon forms a smooth trine to assertive Mars pushing you out into the world to meet up with your favorite intimates.

This is a lovely day for Sunday brunch. There is no reason to consider work, effort, to-do lists, or anything other than seeking harmonious connection. Create or enjoy aesthetic pleasures. If you didn’t go to a museum or art gallery on Saturday, make that a priority on Sunday.

Devote the day to romance, diplomatic cooperation, or charming socialization. Bring flowers home, open the windows, and bring beauty into your home and your heart.

DETERMINATION MEETS CONFUSION

Monday, February 27, 2017:

Don’t expect to settle into calm terrain yet! When impulsive, possibly angry, Mars opposes expansive Jupiter at 9:24 AM EST, the challenges of last week are ratcheted up. There is an overabundance of heat and powerful determination.

With the Moon still in Pisces, you may feel unclear and even confused by the circumstances and shifting events of the past five days. Whatever wake-up call or shocking revelation you have had is going to take some time and inner work to process.

When the sensitive Pisces Moon conjunct Chiron at 1:09 PM EST, you will seek a silent place of healing. Take yourself and your process seriously; go inward even as you support those you love.

With the Moon square Saturn at 6:07 PM EST, you may feel the need for time alone. Respect that for yourself and others.

At 11:51 PM EST, the Moon releases her elusive sensitivity as she enters dynamic, independent Aries. You will be ready to face a new day on Tuesday.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:07 PM EST until she interested Aries at 11:51 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.

 

 

 

BOLD COURAGEOUS LOVE

Tuesday, February 28, 2017:

Finally, we are offered a day of astrological calm on Tuesday. Perhaps, calm is a relative term when the emotional Moon, romantic Venus, defiant Uranus, and dynamic Mars are all in Aries, the sign of impulsive determination. Wow. That is a lot of assertiveness that is bubbling alongside the soft sensitivity of the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune all in Pisces. You cannot really believe all that you see (fake news indeed).

Even with all of this as we come off the past week’s intensity, we will take this moment to breath and relax. The only major aspect throughout the day is the Moon conjunct Venus at 9:54 PM EST.

Consider your most deeply held values; contemplate your own pursuit of love, money, and beauty. Go to bed early, make love with your partner or connect with your own self-love.

Understand that there is boldness and courage in your engagement in love at this time.

Wednesday begins with the aggressive Aries Moon having difficult conversations with obsessive Pluto, anxiety producing Uranus, Jupiter (the planet that simply enlarges whatever picture we are looking at), and aggressive Mars. It is a good idea to carefully observe your own emotional triggers and sidestep other people’s hotspots. This is not a day to speak your mind or engage in difficult conversations. No one will win.

At 9:19 PM EST, the Aries Moon forms a stabilizing trine to steadfast Saturn calming us in time for sleep.

At 9:43 PM EST, you are certainly ready to drift into dreamland, spend time in meditation, or pour yourself an extra glass or two of wine. Your perspective of the circumstances you find yourself in may be highly distorted. Find a way to express your most creative imagination and get a good night’s sleep. Keep your notebook handy to write down your dreams when you wake up on Thursday morning.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:19 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 2:43 AM EST on Thursday 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 significant future impact.

 

 

 

CONNECT WITH KINDNESS

Thursday, March 2, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in Taurus, which you would normally expect to bring solid relief to all the intensity we are living in.

However, with Jupiter now opposing Uranus, whatever you are expecting will be larger and more exciting (or disastrous) than you anticipate. You have the sense of desperately wanting to break free of limitations and restrictions and are highly aware of the most positive as well as the most negative expression of future possibilities.

I encourage you to watch the reflection and the rumbling changes of these energies in your personal life as well as within our culture, our government and the world.

Wherever you find yourself, be an example of calm, open-hearted love, kindness and acceptance. Don’t let yourself get caught up in your own situation so much that you miss the opportunity to make significant, deep connection with others. We are all in need of an extra dose of kindness. Be that example in the world, show the love in your heart.

 

 

 

SIMPLY REST

Friday, March 3, 2017:

Friday presents us with a quiet day of rest. Following a smooth, easy trine aspect to Pluto at 10:20 AM EST, the solid Taurus Moon is VOC until 5:06 AM EST Saturday morning. VOC stands for void of course, meaning that the Moon has made its final major aspect while in one sign until it enters the next sign.

In other words following her conversation with Pluto, she doesn’t speak to any of the other planets until she enters Gemini early Saturday. This slows down all activity and gives us time to rest.

The intense energies of these past weeks have us all on edge; and no, it is not over. For Friday, allow yourself to take a break. Go home after work, cook a nice meal and spend time doing something that simply makes you happy. Take a bath; give your lover massage. Rest.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:20 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 5:06 AM EST on Saturday 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 significant future impact.

VENUS RETROGRADE – WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

Saturday March 4, 2017:

By the time you wake up Saturday morning, the Moon will be in Gemini encouraging conversation, friendliness, and curiosity.

The important thing this week occurs on Saturday as Venus turns retrograde at 4:09 AM EST. She will remain retrograde until April 15th. This is an important period of time. Pay careful attention. Venus goes retrograde approximately every 2 years. As with any retrograde, it is important to refrain from forward motion regarding the issues related to the planet involved.

Venus represents the things we value most dearly, our love relationships, money, art, romance, and beauty. Venus represents our deepest personal values. During this time, it is important to go inward and get crystal clear on the things that you value most highly in your life.

Don’t be surprised if past lovers show up on your doorstep or in your FB feed. What do you need to revisit from the past? What can you learn by looking at what you have valued in the past?

Consider carefully what is of the highest value in your life. Consider that what is in your life has higher value than you may know. Consider what it would take for you to be deeply satisfied. Could you be satisfied exactly where you find yourself?

This is a time of contemplation, not forward motion on these issues.  Do not, I repeat, DO NOT start a new romantic relationship or make new financial investments.

 

 

 

ACTION TO STABILIZE

Sunday, March 5, 2017:

Sunday brings a very active Gemini Moon offering you many opportunities for connections, conversations, and engagement with friends and family.

Early in the morning, before you head into all that activity, there may be some challenge as you are simply not sure which way to turn. Once you determine the direction and take action to move forward, the day will smooth out.

At 6:32 AM EST, the chatty Gemini Moon squares the passive Pisces Sun. You will want the action of the day to be something that moves forward the intension you set in motion, or the seed you planted at the New Moon last weekend.

At 3:45 PM EST, assertive Mars forms a pleasing trine aspect to steady Saturn. This will assist in accomplishments coming easily and hard work moving smoothly. As you push forward into the future, you feel deeply supported by structure and stabilization. This is a day when your communications can help to stabilize your actions.

Bring folks together to get a project done that involves both intellect and physical action. Enjoy time spent with friends accomplishing projects and taking action to move your life forward.

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.

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!
