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: December 12, 2016 through December 18, 2016

This week begins with a bang as the Sagittarius Sun trine Uranus offering surprising revelations, innovations, and excitement.  The periods of time that the Moon is VOC are far shorter this week! What a blessing and relief!

On Tuesday, there’s a Full Moon in Gemini which brings clarity on what began at the Sagittarius New Moon two weeks ago.

If you have anything that you want to accomplish before Mercury turns retrograde, get it done as early this week as possible.

Mercury turns retrograde in the early morning hours of Monday, December 19th (at 15° Capricorn) and will remain in retrograde motion until January 8th. Keep in mind the higher purpose of Mercury retrograde is to get caught up on all projects and processes that have been left to gather dust. These are powerful periods of time for accomplishment as long as you do not move into new terrain.

 

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 this powerful language of astrology.

Contact me TODAY for a FREE STRATEGY SESSION.

Are you up against a difficult decision, or are you questioning your current life, love, or career direction?

An astrological consultation with Astrolore or Jennie will clearly show you the larger picture at play, the universal directional path.

We are both taking new clients and would love to meet with you.

 

 

EXCITEMENT

Monday, December 12, 2016:

Monday begins with a flowing trine aspect between the Sagittarius Sun and Uranus (in Aries). This is the high point of the week and the intensity will remain with us throughout Monday and Tuesday.

The full cycle of Uranus and the Sun began in early April of 2016. Did something surprising begin in your life at that time that was exciting or possibly stressful? This is a cycle of intensification and can be experienced as anxiety or excitement, depending on your relationship to Uranus and where the dance began in your personal chart.

What began in April was fully illuminated in mid-October and is now flowing with excitement and anticipation into your life.

In early January, there will be an adjustment to make but for now, enjoy the flow of anticipation that is moving you forward in a surprising new and exciting direction.

At 7:42 AM EST, the Moon enters Gemini, encouraging you to speak your mind, share your ideas and curiosity. This will be a great evening to bring a friend (or a group of friends) to dinner as the Moon forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to Venus at 5:23 PM EST. This will be a delightful evening for friendship and loving connection.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Gemini at 7:42 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.

 

 

EXPANSION

Tuesday, December 13, 2016:

Tuesday brings with it the illuminated Full Moon at 22° Gemini. If it is a clear night go out and stand under that bright light, absorb its full light. Consider the seed that you planted at the Sagittarius New Moon on Tuesday, November 29th. What has grown from that beginning? The conversational Gemini Full Moon encourages us to take full responsibility for our thinking and our communications.

At 2:04 PM EST, when the Moon opposes authoritative Saturn we can look at any communication issues we are having from a perspective of rationality and realism. You are unlikely to get bogged down in restrictive or depressive thinking. The Sun is not only in higher-minded Sagittarius, but also forms a flowing trine aspect to expansive Jupiter, and a sextile aspect (representing opportunities) to eccentric Uranus at 4:18 PM EST.  Expect surprises that will open your mind and thinking in unusual, expansive ways.

The Full Moon is exact at 7:06 PM EST at 22° Gemini. This is another evening to spend with gatherings of friends sharing ideas and open curious communications.

RADIATE LOVE

Wednesday, December 14, 2016:

Unless you begin your day very early, by the time you get going the Moon will be in Cancer (entering at 7:09 AM EST). Your need for comfort, healing, and nurturing may be more pronounced then usual. You will also be more inclined to offer these warm gifts of kindness to your loved ones.

This is a day when most of us would prefer to stay home with our families and those we love most dearly. Remember this as you go about your day. Offer an extra dose of kindness to folks you meet in the course of your everyday activities. We all long to be seen and loved; practice moving love into your heart and out through your eyes to radiate that love and kindness to others.

At 10:17 PM EST, the Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to dreamy Neptune. Light the candles, open up the massage table, and bring yourself and others to a space of soft radiant dreams.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:57 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 7:09 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 HUMAN REACTION

Thursday, December 15, 2016:

Thursday’s sensitive Cancer Moon encounters anxiety and power dynamics early in the day as the Mood opposes Pluto at 9:38 AM EST. Do you feel “under the thumb” of someone else’s agenda? Are you holding someone else under your thumb?  Pay attention to where unequal power dynamics exist between yourself and others. These issues will most likely show up in family or domestic relationships.

Consider where clear personal boundaries could support your health and the ultimate health of your relationships.

The anxiety from the morning extends into the afternoon as the Moon forms a square aspect to wild Uranus at 4:36 PM EST. Keep yourself on the move. Give anxiety and overwhelm a physical outlet. Go for a walk, go for a run, allow energy to move through you. These are simple Moon transits that will pass quickly as long as you don’t get caught up in unnecessary, dramatic reactions. Allow aggravations and difficulties to roll on by; do not engage with them by fanning the flames.

It is so easy to tell ourselves not to engage with things that trigger us; it is not easy to do. It is so easy to fly off the handle and wonder later how it happened. In these instances, show yourself the deepest level of compassion. What a human reaction! Forgive yourself and others with love and kindness.

When the Moon becomes a VOC* at 4:36 PM EST allow yourself to rest. Keep your evening calm and quiet.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:36 PM EST until she enters Leo on Friday at 8:14 AM PST. 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.

 

 

REGAL STRENGTH

Friday, December 16, 2016:

The Moon enters playful Leo at 8:14 AM EST. Following Thursday’s emotional roller coaster you may feel a bit tentative about reaching out for the pleasure of Leo energy. There is no need to hurry.

As long as you did not get pulled too strongly into the turmoil of Thursday, Friday should unfold with simple pleasures. Connect with your most loyal companions; express an open generosity of the heart. There are no major aspects on Friday. This allows us time to cultivate and relax into the warmth of Leo.

Consider the big cats (lions, leopards, tigers, cheetahs) laying in the sun, regal and content in their strength and inner confidence. Seek out your own creativity, generosity, loyalty, warmth, and vital self-expression.

PROJECTS & PARTIES

Saturday, December 17, 2016:

The Moon is in dramatic, creative Leo all day on Saturday. You will feel strongly supported by her positive connections to expansive Jupiter, stabilizing Saturn, and unpredictable Uranus.

This is the perfect day for a creative holiday project and the perfect evening for a holiday gathering or party.  Express your full, unabashed creativity. Dress up and show off. J

At 7:57 PM EST, the Moon trine Uranus suggests fun, excitement, along with unusual surprises and opportunities. If you’re invited to a party, say yes. Allow vitality, generosity, and openhearted self-expression to rule the day.

You may notice the beginnings of that familiar feeling that comes with Mercury retrograde. Perhaps, you’ve been aware of it for several days. Something seems to be slightly ‘off’ regarding scheduling and communications.

Mercury turns retrograde on Monday December 19th. Think about how you are going to utilize that three-week period of time. Begin to make a list of all the things left undone that you will now be able to catch up on.

 

 

PREPARATIONS

Sunday, December 18, 2016:

Sunday begins with a lovely, flowing conversation between the expressive Leo Moon and the optimistic Sagittarius Sun. You will awaken with the memory of Saturday night’s events still holding you in their warm glow.

At 11:56 AM EST, with the Leo Moon opposing aggressive Mars some agitation is likely to make itself known. Perhaps, you realize the mess you have to clean up from last night’s party, literally or figuratively. Perhaps, you are reminded that you got a little carried away with the fun. The aggravation will pass quickly and at 12:52 PM EST when the Moon enters Virgo you will settle down to the work, effort and efficiency that is required as you prepare for the week ahead.

Sunday afternoon is best spent in service to the smooth functioning of the coming days. If you are celebrating, you probably have a long list of things that must be accomplished. Sunday afternoon offers a wonderful opportunity to actually enjoy crossing many tasks off your to do list.

Enjoy a quiet evening. Monday morning Mercury turns retrograde.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:56 AM EST until she entered her go at 12:52 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.

SHARE LOVE, EXPRESS LOVE

Monday, November 28, 2016:

You may have the sense today that you are holding your breath. Are you waiting for the next shoe to fall? We can see where this is playing out on a cultural and social level but what about in your private life?

Monday is quiet; it is best to allow flow without insisting on focused accomplishment.

We are in the Dark of the Moon with the New Moon coming on Tuesday morning. The Moon is also VOC* until 3:46 PM EST.

Spending time with an inward focus is your best bet.  Once the Moon enters Sagittarius at 3:46 PM EST, you will feel uplifted. The late afternoon and evening will present opportunities to expand your understanding of other cultures, world-views, and manners in which others live their lives.  Open to deep tolerance, understanding, and compassion. Share love. Express love.

The week begins with the Scorpio Moon VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until 3:46 PM EST when she enters Sagittarius. 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.

 

 

SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON: FREEDOM & UNDERSTANDING

Tuesday, November 29, 2016:

The Sagittarius New Moon is exact at 7:19 AM EST. Plant a seed of freedom for your own life and for the lives of all humans. Personal freedom will always leave a bitter taste in your mouth when you know that others do not share your access to those basic freedoms. Therefore, it is important that you plant this seed for the sake of all humans.

At 3:20 PM EST, Venus square Uranus, brings your attention to the more unconventional aspects of your values and you relationships. This energy can bring spontaneous excitement and unexpected change to your usual ways of engaging with others. Expect the unexpected in love and money.

Please take time on Tuesday to do a simple New Moon ritual. You will want to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon and within 24 hours. The Sagittarius New Moon brings powerful energy for the development of freedom and the understanding of the world-view that others hold. Set an intention regarding the ability to share your beliefs and opinions and to hold, with great understanding, the beliefs of others who hold vastly different world-views.
Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, and 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 want 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.

Tuesday’s New Moon at 7 degrees Sagittarius insists that you (we) plant a seed of freedom, perspective, and higher understanding. Plant this seed of freedom for yourself and for the benefit of all humanity.

 

 

ENVISION THE IDEAL

Wednesday, November 30, 2016:

Garden of the Artist at Vetheuil by Claude Monet via Wiki Commons

Garden of the Artist at Vetheuil by Claude Monet via Wiki Commons

Wednesday’s Sagittarius Moon is very active. You may wake with serious or difficult dreams in the early morning hours as the Moon conjoins restrictive Saturn (3:16 AM EST). Allow that energy to shift into excitement and open your thinking to inspiration as the Sagittarius Moon trines electrifying and unusual Uranus at 9:45 AM EST.

The most significant message of the day comes with the Sun’s square to dreamy Neptune at 8:16 PM EST. This energy will resonate through Wednesday and Thursday. Look back at a dream that began in February 2016.  Now it is time to let go of unrealistic aspects of that dream in order to begin a more elevated dream in February 2017.

Begin to consider what you will create out of the cycle you are beginning to release now. You have enough distance and accumulated knowledge to allow the release of the parts of the dream that are no longer viable. Allow yourself to dream, to envision the ideal, to understand impressions, and to work with the intangible that forms the basis of this world. Spread loving kindness.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:08 PM EST until she enters Capricorn on Wednesday at 3:53 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.

 

 

BRING FORTH HOPE AND COURAGE

Thursday, December 1, 2016:

By the time you wake up on Thursday morning, the Moon is in disciplined, hardworking Capricorn, which offers a day of seriousness and focused effort.

However, at this time we can expect the focus to be less on solitary work and more on working together to reach a powerful goal that has great significance moving forward.

At 10:46 PM EST, impulsive Mars (in humanitarian Aquarius) forms a trine (a free flow of energy) to self-confident Jupiter, powerfully impacting both Thursday and Friday.

Consider what began (personally and culturally) in mid-October 2015. At that time, we began a cycle of expanding strength, understanding our combined wisdom, and fighting for protection. That cycle has now brought us to a point where the floodgates have opened!

Give of yourself to the cause you believe in. Bring hope, give financially, and show confidence in the outcome. The full result of this current effort will be clear in late February. Hold on; use your frustration to pour fourth courage and belief in a better future for all.

 

 

CLARITY AND DETERMINATION

Friday, December 2, 2016:

The optimistic self-confidence and courage you experienced on Thursday remains throughout Friday. However, this is not without complications. As the ambitious authoritative Capricorn Moon makes contact with Pluto at 11:28 AM EST, you may feel overwhelmed by the powerful forces that oppose you.

Maintaining equilibrium may be tricky but when Mercury (the planet of thinking, analyzing, and strategizing) enters Capricorn at 4:17 PM EST you may find yourself viewing the world and your personal situation with a focus on integrity, more interest in self-discipline, and a renewed acceptance of your personal responsibilities.  Gather clarity and determination to focus on the reality of what you know must be done.

At 8:58 PM EST, as the Moon squares defiant Uranus anxiety may kick in. Look for innovative inspiration that will assist you in finding the best path forward. Look in unexpected places. Allow unusual ideas to stimulate a different perspective.

AFTER A SERIOUS DAY, KICK UP YOUR HEELS!

Saturday, December 3, 2016:

Saturday begins slowly with the Moon VOC* moving through conventional, serious Capricorn. Until the Moon enters unconventional Aquarius at 2:35 PM EST, it will be best to utilize the day by engaging in serious but simple routine activities that will forward your personal ambitions. You will feel best and be able to enjoy Saturday evening and Sunday more thoroughly if you get something concrete, however simple, accomplished.

Your best use of the day will be solitary. We all need time alone and Saturday before 2:43 PM EST is a great time to claim for the enjoyment of solitude.

Once the Moon enters unconventional Aquarius, you can let down your hair, set aside the serious mask you wore throughout the morning and make plans to engage with others Saturday evening or Sunday. The past few weeks have been terribly serious and challenging. Saturday evening is time to take a break, kick up your heels, and find gatherings of like-minded people to commiserate or party with.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:17 AM EST until 2:43 PM EST when she enters Aquarius. 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.

 

 

CURIOSITY AND INTEREST

Sunday, December 4, 2016:

Everything feels lighter on Sunday. This is a simple day with the Moon in unconventional progressive Aquarius. A sextile from the Moon to the Sagittarius Sun at 3:57 PM EST offers curiosity and excitement as you seek new interests, ideas, and ways of moving forward.

This is the Crescent Moon Phase; that the seed you planted at Tuesday’s New Moon needs to be watered with your explorations and commitment to what you intend to grow. What can you learn now that will help you take a step forward next Wednesday at the First Quarter Lunar Phase? The process today is exploration and curiosity.

Enjoy time with like-minded friends and community members. Remember, we all need each other; the energies that we add to the collective are of major importance to all of us at this time in our shared history.

The Aquarius 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.

__________________________________________________________

“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Keebler-Ross

ENJOY ‘CREEPY’ PLAY – HALLOWEEN

Monday, October 31, 2016:

Halloween falls on a day perfect for the holiday. The sensitive Moon is in mysterious Scorpio enabling us to look into the face of all that is anticipated for this traditionally ‘creepy’ holiday.

At the same time, it is a calm day astrologically; you won’t need to worry about the intensity of ‘creepy play’ spilling into real world fears or compulsions. The Moon makes charming aspects to both Pluto (representing the underworld) and Mars (representing strength and courage) enabling you to play with these energies while learning about yourself through the reality of what is being expressed.  Go ahead and play; enjoy the expression of all that calls to you from the other side of the veil.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:44 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius on Tuesday at 10:44 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.

 

DREAMS AND EXPLORATIONS

Tuesday, November 1, 2016:

You may wake up on Tuesday morning with a deep desire to stay in your warm space of sleep and dreams. Of course, most of you will need to get up and start the day but there is nothing to stop you from bringing your dreams with you.

At 4:16 AM EDT, the vital Sun trines transcendent Neptune encouraging you to continue feeding the dream that began last February. It should be easy to simply roll with the sense that things are not as they appear to be. Do you feel overly sensitive, perhaps even confused or dreamy?

If there was a dream or a powerful impression that began last February, bring your awareness to how you can now utilize what that dream brought into your life. What do you bring to the table now because of how that dream has changed you and your path forward?

Allow yourself to enjoy a sense of groundlessness, a diffuse dreamy state on Tuesday. Trust where you find yourself; allow intuition to guide your steps. Show others what you have learned by trusting your intuition and inspirations.

When the gentle Moon enters philosophical Sagittarius at 10:44 AM EDT, you can expect an increase in physical energy and in your desire for exploration. When the Moon is in Sagittarius, it is always a good time to plan a trip or explore differences of culture and lifestyle. On a Tuesday night, you probably won’t be taking the next jet out of the country to explore the world, but you can sit at home and enjoy a great documentary that may help you understand how others live, love, and experience the full range of their lives.

Tuesday begins with the Scorpio Moon VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Sagittarius at 10:44 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.

SHIFT GEARS

Wednesday, November 2, 2016:

Enjoy the delightful, optimistic Sagittarius Moon for one more day. Wednesday begins with a sextile from the receptive Moon to expansive Jupiter at 9:59 AM EDT.  You may find yourself longing for life to present you with experiences that will enrich and enlarge your life and your mind.  You may feel that life is bigger than you thought. Everything feels larger than life. Hold onto that sense of excitement and freedom for as long as you can.

Say YES to anyone who offers opportunities for emotional expansion and excitement.

When the Moon conjoins Saturn at 4:10 PM EDT, you will likely be brought back to reality regardless of your desires or best intentions.  Go ahead and shift gears. Allow yourself to set the excitement aside to look into the eyes of reality.

While you sleep on Wednesday night (during in the wee hours of Thursday morning), Mercury sextile Pluto. Before you go to bed on Wednesday night, make sure you have pen and paper by your bed to record your dreams. You may have intense dreams of successfully releasing ways of thinking that you have been stuck with for many years.  Pay attention and release.

 

EXPRESS POWERFUL IDEAS

Thursday, November 3, 2016:

At the breakfast table on Thursday morning, be sure to get everyone involved in talking about your dreams from Wednesday night.

At 1:09 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Pluto bringing powerful ideas and thoughts to mind. Since you were probably asleep at that time, those ideas probably expressed themselves in your dreams. This aspect will remain active throughout the day offering you the opportunity to speak about some important issue that you have been hesitant to talk about.

This is the day to speak about, write about, or somehow communicate a significant truth. There is an excellent chance that your fears around this communication will simply disappear as soon as you say what needs to be said.

With the Moon VOC* all day, there is little chance that much will come of this communication. Nevertheless, it will smooth the path, and release fear, for the changes ahead, as your mind grows in understanding.

At 11:05 PM EDT, the Moon will leave behind the lightness of Sagittarius and move into rigid, serious Capricorn. You can look forward to a productive day on Friday.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:36 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 11:05 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.

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT & EFFORT

Friday, November 4, 2016:

Friday is a day to express ambition and make sure your integrity level is up to par. Move into the day with a clear idea of what you can realistically accomplish while holding true to your highest ideals. This is a serious day but one with few complications (until evening when you begin to feel the Venus trine Uranus, which will be exact early Saturday morning).

Keep your nose to the grindstone and your feet planted firmly on the ground. Focus on the completion of any prior commitments or move forward with projects of an organizational nature.

As you head into the evening, the energy shifts and you will feel the excitement or anxiety that is calling from the outside world. There may be more surprises.

The U.S. elections have shown and continue to show us, so much that is deeply disturbing and powerfully unnerving.  It is clear how much we have to gain and lose in the days ahead. This is the time to make sure you are talking amongst yourselves.

Make sure your friends and  loved ones are going to vote next week. The future is in your hands.  This is the weekend to volunteer at the phone banks for your political choices. Don’t neglect your responsibility to push us all forward to a better tomorrow.

SENSITIVITY AND EXCITEMENT

Saturday, November 5, 2016:

As Saturday begins, remember to pay attention, not only to the intensity of the outer world, but also to the development of your closest partnerships and love relationships. Finding a balance between the outer world and the inner world is crucial at this time. Neither one can be neglected.

You may get unexpected or unusual information about a loved one or see a side of a situation you were not anticipating. Refined harmonious Venus trine revolutionary unconventional Uranus at 2:23 AM EDT, this transit will stay with us throughout the day. This may be experienced as exciting, something you can see in a positive light for the greater good.

However, at 5:26 AM EDT the highly sensitive Moon joins with powerful Pluto beginning the day with deeply intense emotion. You may feel highly capable, even powerful, as you work to manage this depth of emotion.

At 5:48 PM EDT, the reactionary Moon squares defiant Uranus bringing an element of friction to the evening. Your desire to maintain stability through routine and limiting structures is brought into question. Allow yourself to break the out of control and cynicism on Saturday.  Add the unusual to the evening. Do something unexpected to bring your true authentic self forward.

 

MAINTAIN EQUILIBRIUM

Sunday, November 6, 2016:

On Sunday morning, we enter Daylight Savings Time in the U.S.; as we move forward this will be reflected in Astrolore’s posts. If you live in another time zone, please adjust accordingly.

Here in the USA, everything is so ramped up in the current presidential elections. It is challenging to maintain our equilibrium. However, Sunday is a day to do your best to simply sit with exactly where you find yourself. You are very likely surrounding yourselves with folks who believe much as you do about the candidates and the outcomes. Otherwise your stress level would be over the Moon! 😉

With the emotional Moon entering Aquarius at 8:56 AM EST, this is a day to spend with like-minded friends. I would tell you to rest from all of the anxiety swimming around this issue but we all know that is not possible. Let’s hope we can get back to normal over the next few weeks. For now, hold steady in the company of those who have your back.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:57 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 8:56 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.

Sending light & love, Laurie

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: October 3, 2016 through October 9, 2016

Hello my dear readers,

Ophelia by John William Waterhouse via Wiki Commons

Ophelia by John William Waterhouse via Wiki Commons

A contemplation to support you this week:

“Life is glorious, but life is also wretched. It is both. Appreciating the gloriousness inspires us, encourages us, cheers us up, gives us a bigger perspective, energizes us. We feel connected. But if that’s all that’s happening, we get arrogant and start to look down on others, and there is a sense of making ourselves a big deal and being really serious about it, wanting it to be like that forever. The gloriousness becomes tinged by craving and addiction. On the other hand, wretchedness–life’s painful aspect–softens us up considerably. Knowing pain is a very important ingredient of being there for another person. When you are feeling a lot of grief, you can look right into somebody’s eyes because you feel you haven’t got anything to lose–you’re just there. The wretchedness humbles us and softens us, but if we were only wretched, we would all just go down the tubes. We’d be so depressed, discouraged, and hopeless that we wouldn’t have enough energy to eat an apple. Gloriousness and wretchedness need each other. One inspires us, the other softens us. They go together.”

~ Pema Chodron

 

Onward to the daily weather.

Peace & love,

Laurie

EXPLORE LOVE

Monday, October 3, 2016:

As the Moon (now in Scorpio) distances herself from the Libra Sun and last week’s New Moon, she comes to the crescent phase where she explores the methods available to help her grow the seed of expanding love she planted at the Libra New Moon on Friday.

With the steamy Scorpio Moon forming lovely aspects to dreamy Neptune and transformative Pluto, along with a conjunction to Venus, the planet of love, it is easy to fall into a bit of a love trance on Monday. Your heart is easily pulled into profound and captivating connections.

You won’t feel that it is necessary but please keep at least one foot on the ground; this is not the time to set a stake in the ground, it is still a time of exploration. The best way to maintain stability and not get swept away is to simply stay true to your self.

Enjoy any bliss you can capture, and no matter how shiny the glow, remember that reality is right around the next corner.

“To thine own self be true.” ~ W. Shakespeare

 

EMOTIONS & BEING A GROWNUP

Tuesday, October 4, 2016:

The Moon continues through Scorpio on Tuesday suggesting deep sensitivity; your emotions are likely to be close to the surface although held in silent privacy.

At 12:58 PM EDT, the Libra Sun forms a sextile aspect to stabilizing Saturn allowing you to focus on the real world and your place in it. You are able to tuck those emotions into a quiet little pocket while dealing with the structures of your life and your responsibilities. This is a great day to meet with authority figures or anyone who can help you move ahead in business or other ‘grown-up’ activities. On Tuesday, you will be a bit more capable of behaving with authority, maturity, and self-control.

When the Moon sextile Mercury (9:05 PM EDT), we are offered an opportunity to reveal and communicate our deeper emotions that have remained hidden while we played the role of the grownup.  Tears and intimate conversations will release pent up stress. Allow yourself and others the vulnerability of this release.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:05 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 4:27 AM EDT Wednesday 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.

RELEASE EGO CONTROL

Wednesday, October 5, 2016:

The day seems a bit brighter and lighter when we get up on Wednesday morning than it seemed when we went to bed on Tuesday night. While we slept, the Moon left the intensity of Scorpio behind to move into adventurous, light-hearted Sagittarius.

You will find yourself thinking about the future and moving through the day with relative ease.

Early evening brings two interesting transits to shake things up a bit.

At 5:22 PM EDT, attractive Venus sextiles transformative Pluto asking that we explore releasing control or power dynamics regarding money, love, or both. Perhaps there is a conversation that needs to happen with a loved one regarding money or other resources. If you owe anyone money, particularly a family member or loved one, make sure your communications are current and that you are in full integrity in the matter.

At 5:44 PM EDT, assertive Mars squares enthusiastic Jupiter encouraging us to move quickly and take on more than may be wise. Take everything in your awareness into consideration and don’t act recklessly. If you are uncertain, ask a trusted friend who may have a more objective perspective to help you see things clearly. If you balk at asking for the perspective or help of a friend, consider relaxing your need to be right.

Get real about the role your ego is playing here. 😉

 

PLAN AN ADVENTURE

Thursday, October 6, 2016:

Thursday is a very quiet day astrologically. The Moon continues through optimistic Sagittarius giving us a wider view of the world and our place in it.

At 8:03 AM EDT, the explorative Sagittarius Moon sextile the Libra Sun, offers the potential for a lovely day. Life feels good; you may want to explore your own most independent nature within the context of your love relationships. You want your intimate partnerships to offer the possibility of both freedom and committed love.

This is a day to consider the full possibility of what you want to create with a loved one. Make it a point to sit together and plan an extravagant adventure. Don’t worry about the details. Even if you have doubts about the implementation, make the plans. Play with the ideas. Don’t be careful. Create the ideas of a future adventure together. Make it fun.

When the plan feels fully formed and exciting, enjoy a little adventure or a special treat for the evening together! Have fun! Play.

 

KINDNESS IS NEEDED

Friday, October 7, 2016:

Friday has the potential to be a challenging day although Mercury’s entrance into Libra in the early morning hours will help to temper the power dynamics that come on board later in the afternoon.

Mercury enters Libra at 3:55 AM EDT where s/he will remain until October 24th.  Mercury in Libra can do much to balance out our thinking,  by helping us to think diplomatically, and remain more impartial than normal.

This will be helpful when the Sun squares Pluto at 3:33 PM EDT bringing with it the possibility of a bid for control and the clashing of egos. Honesty is necessary as is respect for the position of the other. If you can get your egos out of the way and look at each other with full honesty and respect, a deep empowerment may grow profoundly between you. If you each try to gain the upper hand, you will find yourselves in a very hard place. Allow tears, vulnerability, and trust. If that is not an option, you should not spend the afternoon in each others company.

Show extra kindness to folks you encounter in your day’s routines. This Sun square Pluto will play out in harsh ways for many of them. The kindness of a stranger has the potential to make a big difference.  Be that person on Friday. Show kindness. It will spread.

At 4:40 PM EDT, the Moon enters the stable, mature sign of Capricorn. This will help to settle us into a realistic and quiet evening.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:26 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 4:40 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.

ALLOW CHANGE

Saturday, October 8, 2016:

Saturday starts out quietly with the Moon in serious, cautious Capricorn. Get up early to accomplish an ambitious project. At 7:19 AM EDT, the rigid Capricorn Moon conjoins with Mars offering responsibility and leadership skills. Perhaps,  you should get the whole family out of bed early to rake the yard and prepare for winter. At 11:46 AM EDT, the Moon sextile Neptune puts an end to the interest in accomplishment; a mid afternoon matinee with the family would be lovely or simply rest this afternoon with no agenda.

As you head into Saturday evening, thing will likely get a bit testy. Remember the Uranus Pluto square we talked about for so long over the past few years? The major changes of the culture and our lives have brought together the demand for transformation and unusual revolutionary thinking.

Saturday night and well into Sunday, we are reminded of how much has been transformed and how our less conventional thinking has informed the profound changes in our lives and our culture. At 9:57 PM EDT, the Moon conjoins Pluto suggesting a deep discomfort. We understand there is more to come. How does your personal path of transformation fit into the full context of where you currently find yourself?

Consider what action you can take on Sunday to move forward with the New Lunar Cycle of expanding love that began last week on Friday.  You must bring deep stores of love to the fullness of your life’s path.

On Sunday, we come to the First Quarter Moon phase followed by the Moon square Uranus. Saturday we must take action to move further along the path of increased love.  Keep a low profile. Engage only with trusted heart-mates in deep contemplation and connection. This is not an evening for fun or frivolity. Go deep; allow change.

 

LOVE IS SERIOUS BUSINESS

Sunday, October 9, 2016:

Just as Sunday begins, we encounter the First Quarter Moon, reminding us of the seed we planted at the New Moon last Friday. What seed did you plant for the development of love, resources, or beauty? What action can be taken now that will move that seed toward its growth, toward bringing it to reality?

The development of love is serious business. Sunday reminds us of that.  Consider the importance of how you use your time and where you place your attention. This is not a day to simply hang out or enjoy playful endeavors. Allow yourself to be drawn to practical thinking and systems that will support ongoing growth and development.

However, the square aspect formed between the Capricorn Moon and Uranus at 12:51 PM EDT reminds us that seriousness does not necessarily equal conservative or pessimistic action.  Uranus suggests that maturity and integrity can go hand-in-hand with unconventional, original, and even defiant ways of being. Explore new ways to create your future.

Any significant Conversations or plans should be completed before the moon goes VOC at 12:51 PM EDT.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:51 PM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 2:33 AM EDT Monday 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.
