KEEP YOUR HEART ENGAGED

Monday, April 2, 2018:

Monday follows on the heels of a difficult Full Moon, given the Cardinal T-square formed by the Sun and Moon to both Saturn and Mars.

On Monday, the conjunction of Mars to Saturn perfects, offering you a few days to work your way from a deep feeling of inadequacy to hardcore determination. Indeed, there are two sides to this conjunction. You may feel overwhelmed by too much work and effort being demanded of you or you may feel ready to face any obstacle that stands in your way. You may want to simply take the bull by the horns and do what needs to be done through sheer determination and hard work.

However, in every action that you take, remain aware of the impact your actions have on others. It is important that sensitivity and kindness be included in all your work endeavors. It may not be easy but with both assertive Mars and duty-driven Saturn in business oriented, restrictive Capricorn, keep your heart engaged and love on tap.

The Scorpio Moon makes lovely aspects throughout the day helping to keep any stress in perspective.

 

 

GROWTH AND CHANGE

Tuesday, April 3, 2018:

Tuesday morning brings a few sweet aspects from the deeply intense Scorpio Moon to Pluto and Jupiter. You feel moved to explore issues of lasting change and growth in your life. With no other planetary aspects to pull your attention away from the areas of your life that you know require change, these deep issues will simmer within your heart throughout the day.

Whenever the Moon is in Scorpio, you know that there will be issues of intensity to manage. You may experience this intensity in the realm of desire, passion, sorrow, or suffering. Nothing will feel impersonal or superficial.

Look deeply at your own power and consider what is required to eliminate old habits and limiting fears. Avoid tendencies to control others through manipulative tactics and if you find yourself full of suspicion, it may well be unwarranted. Wait before making solid determinations.

 

 

WATCH YOUR WORDS AND RESPONSES

Wednesday, April 4, 2018:

By the time Wednesday begins, the Moon has entered explorative Sagittarius bringing a bit of levity to the table. Unfortunately, that levity is countered by a cranky square between aggressive Mars and retrograde Mercury. Be careful of your conversations, take time to consider how you are experienced and heard by others.

This aspect may also feel like a common conflict between those things you would like to spend the day on and the responsibilities that call. I wonder how many folks skip work on days like this? Go to work; you are going to feel the conflict anyway so you might as well not waste it on a day off. Just watch your words and your reactions to the words of others.

The evening allows for more productive conversations with a trine between the Moon and Mercury at 8:52 PM EDT. Take advantage of this as Thursday does not allow us to get back to a lighter easier space.

 

 

Have you studied astrology for years but are unclear whether you have the knowledge you need? Do you know how to use your understanding 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.

 

 

STABILIZE COMMITMENT

Thursday, April 5, 2018:

You can probably anticipate an early-morning argument on Thursday. It could be an actual argument with another person over the breakfast table or it could be an internal struggle with yourself. In the wee hours of the morning, Mercury, the planet of the thinking mind, already somewhat out of sorts in her retrograde motion, forms a challenging square aspect to restrictive Saturn.

The day can only get better from there, and it does!

At 9:36 AM EDT, Venus forms a trine aspect to Saturn, settling and stabilizing your jagged energies following the early morning struggle. You may find yourself more interested in outwardly accepting or acknowledging a commitment that is already solid in your heart.

For the rest of the day, you should be in relatively high spirits feeling seen and appreciated in the world at large.

Remember, that the Moon is in exuberant Sagittarius throughout the day. In your interactions with others, keep your spirits as buoyant as possible and share the good stuff around. 😉

 

 

A QUIET EVENING IN

Friday, April 6, 2018:

Friday brings with it a bit of morning excitement or defiance as the extravagant Sagittarius Moon makes contact with Uranus (9:35 AM EDT). You may find yourself feeling inspired or simply unsettled. Roll with it; it will pass quickly. Once that energy settles down, the rest of the morning and early afternoon should be quiet and uneventful.

At 2:02 PM EDT, the Moon enters conventionally ambitious Capricorn. The sign the Moon is in says much about how we experience the ‘feel’ of the day. This may not be what you were expecting or hoping for on a Friday evening. Perhaps, you were anticipating a fun night with friends dancing or otherwise socializing. If you try to enact that plan, you may find yourself wishing you had stayed home or chosen a quieter way to spend the evening.

Make a plan to accomplish something that takes solitary effort and focus for the upcoming weekend. If you wake up on Saturday morning with a plan, the whole weekend will be vastly improved.

 

 

 

CONQUER A SERIOUS PROJECT

Saturday, April 7, 2018:

Make sure that you have a plan for Saturday. The morning will go so much better if you know exactly what you plan to accomplish. This is otherwise not an easy day. The Moon is moving through Capricorn (while highlighting the difficult connection between Mars & Saturn) and this transit can be used for accomplishment and discipline as long as you have a focus. Without a focus, it will be easy to fall into worry, pessimism, fear, and narrow-mindedness.

Luckily, Venus forms a supportive trine aspect to Saturn on Saturday as well. This will support the focused projects nicely and allow you to feel better at the end of the day.

Do you still need to do or finish your taxes? This is the weekend to get that done. If that is not still hanging over your head, plan a project that requires solitary focus and productivity. You will enjoy the weekend much more if you spend it alone with a focus than if you try to engage in social interactions.

Your most challenging task on Saturday will be to find balance and perspective. If you are not able to be on your own for the day, remember to show as much kindness as you can muster. We will all need a healthy dose of self-care and kindness.

 

 

OFFER KINDNESS AND RESPECT

Sunday, April 8, 2018:

Sunday doesn’t offer much of a reprieve on the challenges of the weekend. In the wee hours of the morning, the authoritative Capricorn Moon forms a difficult square aspect to the forceful Aries Sun. You may simply feel your style being cramped and what you want isn’t easily available.

You will do well to prepare to stay focused on the project at hand, work is your best bet at this time. Work to stay serious, keep your eye on reality, and stay balanced and steady.

Again, it isn’t easy but offer everyone you encounter kindness and respect.

DEPTH AND INTROSPECTION

Monday, March 5, 2018:

At 8:23 AM EST, the Moon enters deeply personal and introspective Scorpio. You may prefer to spend the day alone contemplating deeply intense issues of a mysterious or private nature. If you must work on Monday, you may find it easy to discover what is at the root of any workplace mysteries.

This is a good day for searching out what is below the surface or, conversely, a good time to hide issues that are best kept undercover. You may know better than usual how to ask the right questions to get to the root or to evade questions asked of you. Days with a Scorpio Moon are not days of casual conversations or connections. Everything seems deeper, more profound, and with more significant meaning.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:19 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 8:23 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

Mystical Pisces season is about to end with Mercury and Venus entering Aries on Tuesday. You can expect less emotion and more action.

 

 

SET THE DREAM ASIDE – TAKE ACTION

Tuesday, March 6, 2018:

By the time you awake on Tuesday, Mercury has entered assertive, action-oriented Aries. The dream state of the past month is broken and it is time to face the mental and intellectual activity that has been brewing below the surface. Mercury has been in Pisces since February 17th, encouraging passive and imaginative thought processes.

Now, it is time to put the words on paper or speak them aloud. If you have had things to reveal but the time has not seemed right, you are moving closer to the tipping point now. Mercury will remain in Aries until May 13th, with Mercury retrograde beginning on March 22nd.

Evening brings lovely Venus into Aries as well. The dream and the fantasy break as you know it is time to face reality. Get clear on your individual values, take the steps necessary to make your relationship and your finances work over the coming months. All that has been put on the back burner throughout the Pisces season is now ready to push forward.

The powerful, private Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to both dreamy Neptune and the Pisces Sun throughout the day. Life has a gentle flow even as words, thoughts, and communications come more directly and easily.

 

 

SEEK NEW DIRECTIONS

Wednesday, March 7, 2018:

Both the flow and the ability to take action continue into Wednesday with a tiny touch of the dream still intact. It is not always easy to release our most lovely fantasies.

At 5:03 PM EST, the Moon enters Sagittarius, lightening your emotional nature and assisting in forward motion. Spend the evening with folks who engage your thinking and your spirit in looking forward to new directions.

Spring by John Reinhard Weguelin via Wiki Media

Consider new perspectives and new directions. What do you want to learn? Where do you want to travel? Who do you want to understand that you currently don’t? Ask questions, get curious, and don’t get stuck in your own already stale thinking. Look at where your life is stuck and move the dial in a new direction.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:55 AM EST until she enters Sagittarius at 5:03 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

RE-EXAMINE WHAT HAS BEEN EXCAVATED SINCE OCTOBER

Thursday, March 8, 2018:

Late on Wednesday night, the Sagittarius Moon forms an easy trine to Mercury, helping Thursday morning to begin with a simple sense of intellectual growth and stimulation. Your mood is likely to be social, friendly, and upbeat. Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign, suggesting physical vitality and ease of adaptability.

Study and curiosity come easily. You will want to socialize with acquaintances who have a variety of perspectives. You will be bored with the same old stories, preferring to find new directions and see the world through the eyes of others.

Sagittarius encourages us to learn through travel and the experience of other cultures.

At the end of the day, (11:45 PM EST), Jupiter stations retrograde at 23° Scorpio. Consider what has been being excavated, explored, and expanded in your life since Jupiter entered Scorpio in early October. Watch how individuals and the culture continue to work through the issues of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Examine where you’ve/we’ve been and how best to proceed when Jupiter moves forward on July 10th.

 

 

CREATE SPACE FOR AN EXCITING EVENING

Friday, March 9, 2018:

At 6:20 AM EST, we reach the 3rd Quarter Moon. This is a stressful square aspect formed between the Pisces Sun and the Moon in Sagittarius. It is time to let go of something that has been developing over the past 3 weeks.

Both Pisces and Sagittarius are mutable signs, this is not anything that you would consider high stress as mutable signs are adaptable, not making much of a fuss even if they don’t necessarily agree with each other. The letting go should be almost effortless.

The Sagittarius Moon joins with assertive Mars and forms a lovely trine with Uranus on Friday evening, offering a potentially exciting evening. This is not a night to stay home alone. Get out into the world to engage with others who will make your heart sing.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:28 PM EST until she enters Capricorn at 4:52 AM EST on Saturday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

BUILD YOUR FUTURE

Saturday, March 10, 2018:

By the time you awake on Saturday morning, the Moon has entered mature, authoritative, and disciplined Capricorn. Throughout the day, there are stressful aspects from the Moon to Venus, Mercury, and, finally, a conjunction with Saturn at 9:05 PM EST.

You are likely to be strongly aware of a renewed need to build structure and planning around the dreams that you have recently been swimming in. You are newly aware of the limitations of time and the reality of aging. You are motivated by this pressing and sobering reality. Consider the structures that you need to build to create the future you desire.

As the day progresses, Sunday morning’s aspects come clearly to the table. It is a mixed bag indeed but first, you will face a challenging square from Mercury to Saturn (2:00 AM EST, Sunday morning). You may feel that it is hard to make yourself understood and the seriousness of your mind and thinking may feel heavy and even depressing. Saturday evening is best used in a serious study, preparing for, planning, or building for your future.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:28 PM EST Friday night until she enters Capricorn at Saturday morning at 4:52 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

COME OUT OF HIDING

Sunday, March 11, 2018:

Sunday continues with the cautious, authoritative Capricorn Moon and the lingering Mercury square to Saturn. Life does not feel inconsequential or light. However, there are powerful and exciting aspects being formed early in the day. Yes, continue to plan for your future even as you allow excitement and empowerment to move you.

At 7:22 AM EST, Mars forms a smooth flowing trine aspect to Uranus, pushing you into intense excitement or powerful anxiety. Which will it be? Make a plan that allows space for excitement. Consider what began in February of 2017 and see how this weekend’s excitement or anxiety stems from that. Watch and consider cultural and political changes. Expect the unexpected.

This may offer new perspectives as you move forward with confidence in your most progressive ideas and goals.

At 7:56 PM EST, the Sun, still in Pisces, forms a lovely sextile to powerful Pluto offering the opportunity to attract and hold attention with your innate sense of self. Find and build confidence as you look into corners of your personality that have long been hidden.

“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force it sap and stands confident in the storms of Spring without the fear that after them may come no Summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”

CONSTRUCTIVE ACTION

Monday, January 22, 2018:

If you head outside in the wee hours of the morning, you will see Mars and Jupiter at the highest point of the ecliptic, still moving through the deeply intense sign of Scorpio. Jupiter’s expansive nature has been opening doors and windows on dark and hidden issues; secrets have been and continue to be exposed. Mars has brought anger and the demand for change in the area of these hidden issues.

Allow yourself the vulnerability to expose the truth of what you have hidden; turn your anger and rage into constructive action. Major change is possible. Put your shoulder to the grindstone.

The Moon entered Aries as the day began, providing much incentive to push forward on a direct, forceful path.

 

 

USING YOUR VOICE

Tuesday, January 23, 2018:

Head outside again (I know it is unlikely… but some of you might!) in the wee hours of the morning before the Sun rises. The pre-dawn sky holds a story. Between 5:50 AM EST and 6:50 AM EST, authoritative Saturn, communicative Mercury, and empowered, often times destructive, Pluto, are seen rising in the east before the illumination of the Sun moves into view at sunrise (7:28 AM EST).

With the Sun in Aquarius, it is the only one of these four planets that is not in heavy, restrictive, duty-bound Capricorn. What does this mean to you? Individually? Culturally? How do you see this reflected?  Think about this simply.

I suspect that most of you are working very hard to bring a powerful change to your lives (and the lives of others) by using your voice with self-respect, determination, and integrity.

On the heels of all the work this week brings, the quirky, brilliance of the Aquarian Sun offers relief and intellectual awakening. Watch the Sun as it shows itself over the horizon.

Consider all the powerful, even revolutionary change possible as you awaken and do the work necessary to bring your message to those who need your voice.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) after 11:15 PM, she will enter Taurus at 8:40 AM EST on Wednesday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

LISTEN – SPEAK TRUTH

Wednesday, January 24, 2018:

Wednesday’s pre-dawn horizon continues to be dominated by Saturn, Mercury, and Pluto showing themselves rising in the East shortly before the wild Aquarian Sun. Serious conversations regarding business and government continue to precede change.

The Love BIrds by Scooby13 via Wiki Media

At 8:40 AM EST, the Moon, settling down after her assertive stretch through Aries, enters stabilizing and comfort-seeking Taurus.

Wednesday afternoon sees Mercury coming into full contact with Pluto. Those serious talks that have been right on the tip of your tongue (or hidden below the surface) are now ready to come forward to shift the very ground you stand on.

Powerful conversations are likely to change the ‘lay of the land’. You may hear things you didn’t expect to hear, you may say things you have wanted to say but weren’t prepared for the results. Now, the time is right.

You likely have very little idea of how the words spoken now will change things but a seed is planted that will grow over the coming months. Much is brewing beneath the surface, Pluto’s work is done in darkness. Pay attention to conversations; listen between the lines.

At 5:21 PM EST, the Taurus Moon forms a stressful square aspect to the Aquarian Sun, pushing you to choose between comfort and necessary, revolutionary change. You have a better idea of what must be done than you may admit to yourself. Get clear.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Taurus at 8:40 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

CREATE BEAUTY AND COMFORT

Thursday, January 25, 2018:

Thursday begins with a lovely sextile aspect from mental Mercury to expansive Jupiter. You are able to see the advantages and the growth possible from whatever conversations have been occurring over the last few days. Whatever that needs to be said or exposed to bring further clarity, comes more easily and creates less stress.

The Moon continues through steadfast, loyal, sensual Taurus. She makes lovely aspects throughout the day to dreamy Neptune, powerful Pluto, and talkative Mercury.

I suspect that your life will take on a slower, more optimistic tone as you focus on sensual pleasures of love and beauty. Whenever the Moon is in Taurus or Libra, (both are ruled by Venus), make the bed, put flowers on the bedside and make space for love, beauty, and sensuality in your life.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) after 10:17 PM EST. She will enter Gemini at 12:40 PM EST on Friday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

CONSIDER ADVENTURE AND TRAVEL

Friday, January 26, 2018:

Since early December, Mars has been playing with Jupiter in Sagittarius which is the sign that Jupiter rules. There has been much activity and anger around revelations of dark Scorpionic secrets in the culture and perhaps, in your community, family, or personal life.

At 7:56 AM EST, Mars, the planet of assertion and direct action, enters Sagittarius and begins to assimilate the lessons of the issues that have been revealed. It is time to envision the growth that’s possible and your path forward. Mars will remain in expansive, light-hearted Sagittarius until he enters Capricorn on March 17, 2018.

While Mars is in Sagittarius, you will want to take direct action in-service of your highest ideals. You will also have less tolerance to feeling confined or restricted in any area of your life. This is a great time to seek out adventure, travel, learn about another culture or a new way of thinking.

At 12:40 PM EST, the Moon leaves the sensual sign of Taurus behind and enters curious, information-gathering Gemini. This will be a good weekend for gathering with friends for light conversation and word games.

If you notice yourself aggravated or someone seems cranky in the early afternoon, let it roll off your back. The Moon opposes Mars at 12:53 PM EST. It will pass quickly. Make plans with friends in the evening.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Gemini at 12:40 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

MENTAL ENGAGEMENT NEEDED

Saturday, January 27, 2018:

You can expect a day of mental activity on Saturday. You will be curious about others, you don’t want to sit still but want to move quickly and experience variety in all things. This is the way of Gemini.

This is not the weekend to sit languidly on the couch, go to a movie or spend time at a meditation retreat. You will be much happier chatting with new friends, reading, something relatively light, teaching, learning, and gathering information about a variety of topics.

Keep active or you will find yourself restless and skittish. You may notice that you have a shorter than usual attention span. If you encounter restlessness in others, you may be impatient as well. Use humor to defuse any challenging situations.

As evening approaches, you may notice excitement tor mental anxiety. In the wee hours of Sunday morning, Mercury forms a challenging square aspect to unsettling, inspirational Uranus. Open your mind and allow unusual ideas, epiphanies, and shifting understandings of your world. Don’t hold too tightly to an opinion, belief, or idea. Thoughts, beliefs, and ideas can change on a dime.

Basically, this is a light-hearted day that requires quick movement and mental engagement. Enjoy as you think outside the box.

 

 

DISMANTLING OLD BELIEFS

Sunday, January 28, 2018:

If you think about the planets as teachers, consider Mercury as the trickster who moves quickly, talks quickly, and wants to chat-up all the students. Uranus is the unconventional teacher, a bit of a rebel offering insights that surprise or shock its students. In May of 2017, these two joined together to begin a cycle or to teach a class of unusual ideas and a new way of thinking. The next time they come together will be in May of 2018. This is a one year cycle.

With a challenging square aspect between them occurring on Sunday, look back to what you were thinking or learning in May 2017. The line of thinking or communication that you began then now needs to be dismantled in order to begin a new conversation or thinking pattern this May. Don’t worry you have between now and May to engage in the process of dismantling.

An upset may occur to push you to release that thinking, you may meet someone who shakes up your thoughts or you may just have wild epiphanies. Allow yourself to begin the process of release.

At 1:57 PM EST, the Moon winds down, moving into Cancer and hoping to sit close to loved ones and relax with a good meal and loving connections.

“For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don’t enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are you’re not going to be very happy. If someone bases his/her happiness on major events like a great job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.” ~ Andy Rooney

SUPER SENSITIVE CANCER FULL MOON

Monday, January 1, 2018:

The year begins with the focus squarely on family and emotional security with the Full Moon at 11° Cancer. If you are not able to be with biological family, make sure you are engaged in connections with others that have a similar familial quality.

You may notice yourself unusually interested in creating or deepening powerful loving bonds. Family bonds are not easy and require work to be supportive and provide the safety you are looking for. Do not shy away from the necessary effort.

This sensitive Cancer Moon has serious conversations with Saturn, Venus, and the Sun, suggesting the work and effort bring what is necessary into focus.

The evening brings a lovely Neptunian dreamy quality that helps you to release the seriousness of the early part of the day and engage in loving dreams of the future.

 

PROFOUND CHANGE MOVES FORWARD

Tuesday, January 2, 2018:

As the Capricorn Sun inches closer to powerful Pluto, we feel the intensity of the year ahead. Love and compassion may not come easily with the Full Moon opposing Saturn, Venus, and the Sun but are much required going forward.

The serious Capricorn Sun forms a sweet sextile aspect to Neptune early in the day, allowing the possibility of making contact with a mystical or imaginative side of yourself. This will be a great day to work on any project that fully engages your creativity and the softer side of your imagination. Perhaps, it is time to re-engage your meditation practice, yoga practice, writing practice, or any other daily practice that puts you in the presence of your own divinity.

Uranus turns direct at 24° Aries after being retrograde since August 3, 2017. If you have planets between 22° and 24° Aries, you can expect excitement, unexpected news or upheaval. Something has been on hold since August that will now move forward, shifting your life along with the direct motion.

If you were born between April 11 -14, July 14 – 17, October 15 – 18, or January 12 – 15, your Sun is being affected. As much as possible, go with the flow that presents itself and do not fight against the change that is in front of you. This is a major life transformation that takes at least a year to navigate. Your best life is on the other side of this transit. A full consultation will help you understand how to go with the flow involved and avoid the fear-based tendency to fight against it. Please contact me.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:46 PM EST until she enters Leo at 2:23 AM EST on Wednesday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

ROMANCE AND FLOWERS

Wednesday, January 3, 2018:

By the time the day begins on Wednesday, the Moon leaves the sensitivity of Cancer behind to enter Leo, where she encourages you to express yourself unabashedly through play, generosity, and creativity.

At 12:38 PM EST, comfort-seeking Venus forms a lovely sextile aspect to Neptune, the planet of romance and mysticism. This aspect mirrors the transit between the Sun and Neptune that occurred on Tuesday. Again, you are encouraged to make contact with a very sensitive, perhaps deeply spiritual side of yourself.

You are also reminded to re-engage any daily practices in your life that you have been neglecting through this holiday season. Get back on the meditation cushion, yoga mat, get back into nature, or open your writing journal once again.

This is a great day to shop for clothes or other items of decoration for yourself or your home, as your sense of beauty is highly engaged.

When Venus and Neptune dance together, they also encourage romance, love, desire, and sensitivity.

You deserve flowers on the table and a candlelit meal with a loved one or even on your own.

 

GIVE OF YOURSELF THROUGH PLAY

Thursday, January 4, 2018:

Thursday’s Leo Moon encourages warmth, generosity, and full undiluted expression of your most authentic self. From another perspective, you (or those around you) could possibly get stuck in arrogance and easily hurt feelings. If you focus on what you can offer others, rather than what you can get for yourself, this will be a fun day with lots of potential excitement and unusual conversations.

The optimistic Leo Moon forms a Grand Trine to communicative Mercury and humanitarian, quirky Uranus in the evening. Creative social activities can prove highly positive. Your feeling nature may seem a bit over the top as your dramatic nature is apt to reveal itself with grand feelings and gestures.

Enjoy fun times with folks that appreciate you for your most unique wild side. If you have children in your life… take them sledding or find some way to engage on their level. Give of yourself through play.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:10 PM EST until she enters Virgo at 3:11 AM EST on Friday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

NOTICE THE DETAILS

Friday, January 5, 2018:

Friday begins with the Moon in diligent, self-contained Virgo. The unabashed self-expression of the past few days brings you up against the need to become more competent and to pay more attention to details.

If you pay attention, you will realize how much easier it is while the Moon is in Virgo to take on a serious endeavor that requires efficiency and putting your nose to the grindstone.

The Virgo Moon will bring you face to face with your inner perfectionist and critic. Be aware of your tendency to expect more from others that they may be capable of. If you express expectations that someone is unable to deliver, you may inadvertently push them into old spaces of guilt, shame, and critical self-judgment.

Be kind to yourself and others. It is more important now than you realize. Please be kind.

INNOVATIVE IDEAS MEET EXPANSIVE GROWTH

Saturday, January 6, 2018:

Two significant aspects occur on Saturday that has a wider range of impact than a simple moon transit. At 6:38 PM EST, Mercury (the planet of mind) forms a flowing trine aspect to Uranus. This suggests delightful and innovative thinking, communications, and ideas. Watch for unexpected epiphanies, unusual, or exciting communications, and unique progressive thoughts.

In May of 2017, Uranus and Mercury joined together, beginning a cycle of creative and innovative thinking. In October, there was likely a result of that new way of thinking or communicating. Try to identify what occurred in May, what was revealed about it in October, and now needs to be expressed to others. What have you learned that can be beneficially shared with others?

Perhaps, this is the time to create that podcast or blog that you’ve been thinking about? Perhaps, it is time to allow someone to understand your mind in a new way; to create a new form or method of communication? In some way, it is time to reveal your progressive thinking in a public way.

Also, dynamic Mars conjoins with expansive Jupiter at 17° Scorpio, beginning a cycle of assertive growth, courageous generosity, or frustrated idealism. If you were born between November 7-10, February 3-6, May 5-8, or August 7-10, this will have a powerful personal impact on you. Set an intention to courageously expand your personal reach toward self-growth. This is a significant year for you to reach beyond the places you have been stuck. Contact me – let’s talk.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:51 PM EST until she enters Libra on Saturday morning at 7:14 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

BRING BEAUTY INTO YOUR LIFE

Sunday, January 7, 2018:

With the Moon passing through cooperative, graceful Libra on Sunday, your focus will be on creating order through diplomacy and pleasing interactions with others. You will also want to create a beautiful environment within which those interactions can occur. You are more able than usual to set aside your own agenda in order to avoid confrontations and achieve the peace you long for.

It may be difficult to make clear decisions without the input of others as you do not want to lose the approval of those around you. This is a good day to engage in cooperative activities that require teamwork.

You may hit a snag when the Moon squares Saturn at 11:09 AM EST. Stay with it, work your way through that snag in order to learn a great deal about yourself and your ability to work constructively with others.

Create beauty in your home and your relationships; spend time creating art or visiting a museum. It will be deeply soothing to bring as much beauty into your life as possible.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Libra at 7:14 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

HAPPY (SERIOUS) HOLIDAY

Monday, December 25, 2017:

The week begins with Venus, the planet of love and deep, personal values, entering serious Capricorn at 12:25 AM EST. There are now four major planets, who act as our teachers, in the Cardinal Earth sign of accomplished Capricorn. This should alert you to the seriousness of your deeply held values, romantic connections, and the creation of beauty in your life.

Before the end of the day, lovely Venus joins with stabilizing Saturn, starting a one year cycle of combining values with steadfast ambition and necessary effort.

This may not be as lighthearted a holiday as we may have hoped, and yet, our values, sensitivity, understanding of beauty, feelings of self-worth, and relationships are deepened, even as they are brought into full focus.

The Moon remains in dreamy, compassionate Pisces until 8:26 PM EST, when she enters fiercely determined Aries. Pay attention to the tendency toward aggravation, impatience, and arguments with family members this evening and over the next few days. Head home early for a quiet evening to unwind and settle down after a big day.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:49 PM EST on Sunday, until she enters Aries at 7:26 PM EST on Monday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

A DAY OF ACTIVTY

Tuesday, December 26, 2017:

Tuesday begins with the brave Aries Moon forming a stressful square aspect to the persistent Capricorn Sun. This is the First Quarter phase of the Moon, asking that you take action on what you began last week at the New Moon.

When Aries and Capricorn work together, it offers an ambitious combination of drive and initiative. Impatience may cause problems on Tuesday and, if you have the day off due to the holiday, it may be difficult to relax; so don’t even try!

If you live in a winter climate, this is the perfect day to go skiing, snowboarding, or any other active sport. Working out at the gym or getting yourself to a climbing wall would be appropriate. This is not a day to sit by the fire and read a book!

When the Moon trines Mercury at 9:27 PM EST, it may be difficult to settle the mind down for sleep. Avoid any high intensity before sleep, engage in simple conversation or reading before bed. Keep electronics out of the bedroom to assist in getting a good night’s sleep.

 

 

RELEASE OLD RESENTMENTS

Wednesday, December 27, 2017:

A Christmas Carol by Dante Gabriel Rossetti via Wiki Media

Wednesday may be challenging or downright difficult, as the energetic and dynamic Aries Moon engages both Pluto and Uranus in stressful conversations. Watch your response to others and be ready to get out of your own way. Consider how you respond to having your feelings hurt, any feeling of generalized anxiety, and the feeling of being put-upon by the expectations of others.

Understand that everyone you encounter is in a tight spot themselves, so do what you can to calm and settle whatever environment you are in.

These difficulties, if they surface today, are a reminder of the bigger challenges that have been with us over the past few years. Revisit issues in order to continue the process of releasing old resentments and grudges. Consider this an opportunity to do those things.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:58 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 1:24 AM EST on Thursday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

IMPRESSIONS AND IMAGES

Thursday, December 28, 2017:

Thursday begins with a lovely trine aspect from assertive Mars to dreamy Neptune. This aspect may make us feel inspired to bring a dream into the world that began in January of 2017, when Mars and Neptune last joined together. Pay attention to whatever impressions and images are releasing their gifts into our lives.

What daydream did you begin at the beginning of 2017? If it turned out to be an unrealistic fantasy, now you can begin the process of releasing it. If it is a dream you want to continue to pursue, its gifts are being brought forth at this time.

When Mars and Neptune come together, there is a sense of idealism and the possibility of wearing rose colored glasses. We may experience other’s charisma even as others experience the same in ourselves. This is a reflection of the beauty of us all.

Thursday is a great time to engage in creative endeavors, particularly in areas of film, poetry, and music. Today, we have the focus to push forward to see our dreams flourish over the coming year.

The Moon is VOC* from 3: 57 PM EST, until she enters Taurus at 1:24 AM EST on Thursday morning. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

CREATE BEAUTY

Friday, December 29, 2017:

Following a powerful flowing trine aspect to Pluto at 10:00 AM EST, the steadfast Taurus Moon heads into a prolonged period of quiet until she enters Gemini on Saturday morning.

On this day: REST.

Allow activity to resume over the weekend but do not push for it before Saturday morning.

The Moon in earthy Taurus brings a stable, grounded energy to the day. Ruled by Venus, Taurus connects you fully to your physical body. Emotions are stabilized through connecting with the body and through building or creating something tangible.

It is important to stay fully connected with our physical body at this time. Get a massage, eat a meal (go with comfort food), take a bath, or make love.

Pay attention to the feeding of all of your sentences -sight, sound, taste, touch, and scent. Focus on the aesthetics of your environment. Venus delights and thrives in beautiful surroundings. Buy flowers for your bedroom, wear your most beautiful clothes, and help to bring beauty into your world.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:00 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 4:31 AM EST on Saturday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

HUMOR, VERSATILITY, AND CONVERSATION

Saturday, December 30, 2017:

By the time you wake on Saturday morning, we will be ready to put our best social foot forward. With the Moon in versatile, inquisitive Gemini, we can anticipate that the trickster (Mercury) is on the move. Life seems more like a game that we must simply play, with humor being a way to defuse any serious challenges or situations you may encounter.

Get out and visit with others before preparing for the New Year’s.

Make sure that you have the mental stimulation you require; without it you will experience a certain amount of restlessness and nervous agitation. Keep busy with communications and intellectual engagement.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:00 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 4:31 AM EST on Saturday.

This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

2017 ENDS ON A NOTE OF INSPIRATION

Sunday, December 31, 2017:

Sunday offers a delightful day to end the year on!

The Moon is in alert and enthusiastic Gemini. Be sure that the folks you spend the evening with are the type of people who will provide you with the intellectual stimulation that you will need.

Go ahead and allow yourself to talk, laugh, and engage with many folks through any medium; emails, phone calls, and text messages abound. Allow that level of engagement to be just what the day is about. Keep the motion and the communications going or you will find yourself restless and on-edge.

At 6:38 PM EDT, the Moon forms a sextile (which suggest an opportunity) aspect to unconventional Uranus assuring an exciting evening and end to the 2017.

2018 comes in with inspiration, a focus on individuality – and a bit of defiance.
