The Lunar Nodes change signs on Tuesday!

As the transiting Lunar Nodes move through the signs, they impact our lives through our natal charts. The Nodes also remind us of the path our soul is asking us to follow.

Phantasy by William Savage Cooper via Wiki Commons

On Tuesday, May 9th, the Lunar Nodes move into the fixed signs of the Leo/Aquarius axis. Since mid-November of 2015, they have been in the mutable signs of Virgo/Pisces. Due to the Lunar Nodes moving primarily in a retrograde motion, they enter this axis at 29° Leo/Aquarius and will remain in these signs for approximately one and a half years.

During this time, the Leo area of your chart will become a more prominent sphere of growth. The Aquarius area of your chart may feel more vulnerable and require attention as you work through challenges there. You may experience a strong shift, what feels like an insistence toward expressing your creative gifts more freely in the Leo arena as you reach your fullest potential in this area of your life.

The last time the Lunar Nodes moved through the Leo/Aquarius axis was between February 2008 and August 2009. At that time, it was the North Node in Aquarius and the South Node in Leo, the opposite of where they are currently moving toward and will be inhabiting May 9th.

The last time the North Node was in Leo and the South Node in Aquarius was between October 1998 and April 2000. Do you remember what was happening in your life during those periods of time? How do circumstances that occurred during those times relate to where you are currently? How can those past occurrences inform the steps you can take in the areas of your life being affected over the next one and a half years?

 

Do you want to learn astrology but don’t know where to begin? Would you like to acquire the knowledge and understanding regarding this complex way of looking at the world? I’ve been referred to as a wonderful, heartfelt teacher and I will help to lead you gently down the path to greater understanding of astrology and your own life path.

KINDNESS WITH INTEGRITY

Monday, May 8, 2017:

Monday’s gracious Libra Moon struggles for balance as she encounters challenging aspects to mighty Pluto, thoughtful Mercury, and uncommon Uranus throughout the day. I understand that you want harmony but keep uppermost in your mind that you cannot create that balanced state of relationships on the back of dishonesty or lack of integrity. If you say yes when your truth is screaming “No”, be clear that you are creating major disharmony, even if your desire is good will.

Make sure that you are crystal clear regarding your answer to any requests made of you. If your true answer to a request is no but you think you SHOULD say yes, pay attention to that red flag! Say ‘No’ emphatically. This is a day when you need to be very clear about what is true for you. Harmony is created through integrity toward yourself and others. There are no shortcuts.

Be kind without selling yourself down the river.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:59 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio in the wee hours of Tuesday morning at 1:01 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

EMPOWERMENT – BLESSED FLOW

Tuesday, May 9, 2017:

Tuesday brings the issues of power and empowerment to the table – front and center! While you slept, the Moon entered Scorpio, bringing your emotions to a deep dive into intensity and passion.

At 2:23 PM EDT, the Sun at 19 degrees Taurus forms a helpful, supportive trine aspect to Pluto at 19 degrees Capricorn. Remember, Pluto represents the process of metamorphosis. When Pluto is involved in a challenging transit or aspect, (a square, an opposition, and sometimes a conjunction), there is struggle and difficulty with the process of deeply significant change. When the aspect is positive, (as in a sextile or a trine), the process is often imbued with deep empowerment and a sense of blessed flow.

If you know the houses in your chart that these planets and aspects fall in, you will have a better idea of where this flow wants to express itself in your life.

Perhaps, a webinar to help you see where these planets and aspects fall in your chart would be helpful. Would you be interested? Let me know!

In the very early hours of Wednesday morning at 1:19 AM EDT, Mercury forms a powerful conjunction with Uranus. The energy of this planet has been working with us for the past week or so and finally, the transit becomes exact. You may find that your mind is focused on demands for freedom, equality, and justice. You may be surprised by ideas and thoughts that come to life over the coming days.

Mercury conjunct Uranus is the beginning of a cycle that screams, “Wake up”! What are you going to do with this one precious life? How can you help in the demand for freedom and equality? Wake up!

 

 

SCORPIO FULL MOON – WAKE UP

Wednesday, May 10, 2017:

Red Girl & Knight by John William Waterhouse via Wiki Commons

While you slept, the conjunction between Mercury and Uranus became exact at 1:19 AM EDT. Pay attention to the demand for freedom of thought and expression. Where do you feel this freedom being hindered? What can you do to wake yourself and others up to what needs to be changed and shifted on this planet? How can you help to bring equality to all?

Do not be overwhelmed; change occurs when we each take tiny steps to support the larger steps of others who are able and willing. Wake up and then take action!

At 5:43 PM EDT, the Lunar Cycle reaches its pinnacle at the powerful Scorpio Full Moon. What seed did you plant at the New Moon two weeks ago? How has that process developed? What intensity has developed and is in clear view at this time?

Read Tuesday’s post about the movement of the Nodal Axis and pay attention to a drive toward expression and the necessity to awaken.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:43 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 1:00 PM EDT on Thursday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

DEEPER CLARITY BY EVENING

Thursday, May 11, 2017:

On Thursday, the depth and intensity of the Scorpio Moon gives way to the desire for adventure and a more expansive understanding as the Moon enters Sagittarius at 1:00 PM EDT.

However, the lighter sense that Sagittarius generally brings is quickly colored by a blurred understanding of the day’s circumstance when assertive Mars forms an uncomfortable square to murky Neptune at 1:52 PM EDT. This pattern may reflect a loss of perspective, leaving you somewhat confused about the direction you want to go or the path you would like to take. Rest in this fluid state, do not allow it to overwhelm you. Spend a few hours in quiet contemplation.

When cerebral Mercury forms an easy trine aspect to Saturn at 4:14 PM EDT, you are able to see more clearly and understand how your thinking directs the realities of your circumstances and your life. Clarity is welcomed and your mind and communications gain much needed clarity.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Sagittarius at 1:00 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

ENTHUSIASM & FUN

Friday, May 12, 2017:

You may notice that it is much easier to get out of bed this morning than is often the case on a Friday morning.

Dynamic Mars forms a lovely flowing trine aspect to generous Jupiter at 6:18 AM EDT. This energy of expansion and optimism should stay with you for the bulk of the day. You may feel a slight confusion or discomfort around 5:00 PM EDT when the extroverted Sagittarius Moon forms a challenging square to disorienting Neptune. Take this as a suggestion to take a nap before a fun Friday evening adventure.

At 5:58 PM EDT, the Sagittarius Moon forms an exciting sextile aspect to cheery Jupiter encouraging you to entertain, mingle, or somehow expand your social circle.

At 6:45 PM EDT, when opinionated Sagittarius Moon opposes combative Mars, you will do well to pay attention to how you express your more passionate opinions.

It may be easy to speak too loudly or otherwise offend someone with your point of view. Be respectful, watch what you say, and plan for a fun night of social pleasure.

 

LOOK AHEAD

Saturday, May 13, 2017:

Saturday’s explorative Sagittarius Moon moves quietly through the day allowing you to pay attention to the details of the weekend. She is so slow it is almost as though she is saving her energy for evening.

At 5:46 PM EDT, the far-reaching Sagittarius Moon trine unpredictable Uranus, encouraging you to seek inspiration and an exciting adventure to sink your teeth into.

At 6:57 PM EDT, when the Moon joins with deliberate Saturn, you may become aware of more somber outcomes or responsibilities that could be ignited by your adventures. Allow that seriousness to pass (remember, Moon transits pass quickly) and open your thinking to the future.

At 10:15 PM EDT, the Moon trine thoughtful Mercury, allowing you to say and express your ideas openly with enthusiasm and clarity. Enjoy the evening as Sunday will bring with it seriousness and focus on the path ahead.     

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:15 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn in the wee hours of Sunday morning at 1:38 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

FOCUS & PATIENCE

Sunday, May 14, 2017:

When you begin the day, you will immediately be aware of a profound difference in how you feel, and the quality of light within and without. After several days of excitement with the Sagittarius Moon, she has now entered Capricorn bringing you face-to-face with cold, sober reality.

This is a day of thoughtful, deliberate determination. You could spend the day working on any difficult projects that requires focused work and patience.

By the end of the day, you may feel highly accomplished in any number of areas of your life. Perhaps, you should get a jump on the coming week. Make a list of all the things you could do that would assist in a week of ‘easy flow’.

Is there a topic you need to study to be prepared for the week ahead? You could prepare meals or make sure your laundry is done for the upcoming week. This is not a day for frivolous play but a day to focus in order for the coming days to move more smoothly.

If you find yourself with time on your hands, offer your services to help others get move ahead or prepare for the upcoming path.

IMPULSIVE, DYNAMIC THINKING AHEAD

Monday, March 13, 2017:

Monday morning begins with a lovely Libra Moon ushering us into our day. Focus your attention on creating harmony and diplomatic social relationships. Make nice with everyone. This should be relatively easy, even with Venus retrograde.

At 5:07 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our thoughts, communications, and general perceptions, moves quickly into dynamic, impulsive Aries. Mercury only remains in Aries until March 31st, when it will move into stable Taurus.

While Mercury is in Aries, your thinking moves quickly and you may have very little patience. You could easily get yourself into trouble by saying exactly what comes to mind without thinking through the consequences. Your thoughts can bring powerful inspiration and you may feel as though your mind has caught fire!

Enjoy the experience but do remember to slow down and be kind with your words.

 

 

A POWERFUL DAY LEADS TO HEALING

Tuesday, March 14, 2017:

Diplomacy and peacemaking was easier on Monday then it will be on Tuesday. Yes, the Moon continues through harmonious Libra but forms harsh aspects to the T-square between powerful Pluto, enlarged Jupiter, and defiant Uranus, which is the planetary combination that has us all in turmoil!

During the T-square, first, the Libra Moon squares Pluto, followed by a conjunction to Jupiter, and then opposes Uranus, all within the course of the day. This activity highlights the intense level of agitation, over-extension, and power grabbing activity we see in the highest level of government. You will feel these energies in your own life and watch them in the lives of your friends as well.

At 10:41 PM EDT, when the Sun conjoins Chiron, the Wounded Healer, at 24° Pisces, you may find the ability to release an old wound and reach for healing that is offered.

As you offer healing compassion to others, your own pain can be released. Pay attention to your dreams, release the tight knots of your heart, and rest in open inspiration. Meditation and dreams will support this powerful process.

RELEASE – BREATHE – REPEAT

Wednesday, March 15, 2017:

Wednesday begins at 6:06 AM EDT with a harmonious sextile between the charming Libra Moon and stabilizing Saturn. Allow the day to begin with ease and simplicity.

At 11:11 AM EDT, the Moon leaves diplomacy aside to enter mysterious Scorpio. This brings passionate, introspective depth to the rest of the day. Perhaps, on Tuesday, you wanted to please others but on Wednesday you’re more cautious and it’s possible that your suspicious nature will take over.

At 7:38 PM EDT, when the compulsive Scorpio Moon opposes aggressive Mars, you or those around you, may be spoiling for a fight. Don’t let that fight engage you. It is only a Moon transit and will subside if you give it a bit of time. Do not respond, take deep breaths, and simply let it go. If you engage with that battle, it may grow all out of proportion.

Release – Breathe – Repeat.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:06 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 11:11 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.

 

 

EMBRACE INSPIRATION

Thursday, March 16, 2017:

Thursday should be a calm and simple day. The powerful Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine to mystical Neptune at 11:25 AM EDT.

This holds your emotions in a powerful state of dreamy inspiration. If you are a poet, musician, artist, or mystic, this is a lovely day to follow your inspiration. For the rest of you, it is a day to take notice of your connection to spirituality, music, compassion, and the creation of inspiration in all areas of your life.

 

 

RESPONSIBILITY AND SELF-RESPECT

Friday, March 17, 2017:

On Friday, as the Sun squares serious Saturn at 5:47 PM EDT, you will likely have the sense of being held back somehow. You may feel that some higher authority is preventing you from moving forward in some way. Step back from the temptation to look for blame or to express your frustration with anger.

This is a day when it is important to look clearly into the face of reality. A great difficulty will occur if you attempt to avoid whatever reality needs to be faced. What responsibilities do you wish were not on your plate? How much easier will your life be if you simply face the issue and embrace your limitations with self-respect? This is the final square of the cycle of maturity that began on December 10, 2016.

Something that began in December is now beginning a process of release. Face the issue and work with it rather than trying to hold to something that wants to change. It does not necessarily need to end but must begin to change form.

P.S. You can look forward to a lovely weekend ahead.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:57 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 11:00 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

WORDS OF LOVE

Saturday, March 18, 2017:

Saturday is a lovely day to speak the words of love and appreciation that are on your mind. If you have held back from declaring your heartfelt feeling, today is the day to directly speak from your heart.

At 8:26 AM EDT, expressive Mercury conjoins with lovely Venus, both at 9° Aries. This colors the entire day with a desire to be assertive and direct with pleasurable, beautiful communications.

Later in the day, as the impulsive, optimistic Sagittarius Moon forming a flowing trine aspect to this pair, it simply accentuates the expansion and words of love. If you have anything good to say, this is the day to say it. If words are a part of your creativity as a writer or speaker, enjoy a great boost to the positive words and expressions of beauty you are able to bring forth.

 

 

SEEK A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Sunday, March 19, 2017:

What can you get excited about on Sunday? The Moon remains in delightful, philosophical, freedom-loving Sagittarius throughout the day. There is nothing to get in the way of Sagittarius’ jovial nature.

At 4:35 PM EDT, she forms a lovely sextile to expansive Jupiter, followed by a flowing trine to excitable Uranus at 9:30 EDT.

Find ways to expand your vision, your perspective, and your worldview. Engage in conversations with people who think very differently than you do, plan a trip that will bring you face-to-face with another perspective of the world, or watch a documentary that opens your mind to the way others think or live.

A GENTLE START TO 2017

Monday, January 2, 2017:

A very brief VOC* Moon will not interfere with the day at all! By the time you wake up on Monday morning, the Moon will be in dreamy Pisces where she spends the rest of the day lazily content.

It is delightful to be given such an easy and gentle movement into the first week of 2017.

At 7:58 AM EST, we are offered a lovely, supportive sextile between the imaginative Pisces Moon and Mercury (the planet of communication and thought) in hardworking Capricorn. You may want to get up early to engage with gentle movements of mind. This will be a lovely morning for writing, meditation, and to engage with the dreams that you intend to create during the course of 2017.

At 10:57 PM EST, the passive Pisces Moon joins with mystical Neptune encouraging whimsical, gentle dreams throughout the night.

 

INTUITIVE LOVE

Tuesday, January 3, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Tuesday morning, there are a significant number of planets gathered in inspired, sensitive Pisces. At 2:46 AM EST, Venus (the planet of love and beauty) leaves independent Aquarius behind to join Neptune, Mars, and the Moon in this sensitive, mystical sign.

When such a gathering occurs, it is good to pay attention to what the Universe is teaching you through the energy of this sign. If you know what house Pisces occupies in your personal chart, this will help you understand where to put your artistic, mystical, or inspired focus.

Are you being called to focus on developing compassion or your spiritual practice? Are you being call to focus on music, poetry, or creating a work of inspired beauty? Follow your heart and intuition.

Venus will remain in Pisces until February 3rd when she will enter assertive, courageous Aries. For now, allow your intuition to guide you in matters of love, money, and beauty.

 

LEAVE THE FOG BEHIND

Footprint of the Buddha from Zen You Mitsu Temple by Beta M via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, January 4, 2017:

The mystical haze of Pisces clears up somewhat on Wednesday morning as Mercury (still retrograde) backs out of serious, steadfast Capricorn and into expansive Sagittarius at 9:17 AM EST.

Shortly thereafter, the Moon leaves mystical Pisces behind to enter dynamic Aries at 11:20 AM EST. As these energies bring the element of Fire to our collective, we come out of the Pisces fog and into a more direct, straight-forward manner of getting through the day.

Shake off the dust and get back to work. It is time to leave the holiday state of mind behind and get back to the projects on your Mercury Retrograde list. Remember, the list you made when Mercury turned retrograde on December 19th? If the holidays have distracted you, now it is time to finish up that list. Mercury goes direct on Sunday! There is still time to complete those old projects so you will be ready to move ahead next week.

There will be a five minute VOC* Moon between 11:15 AM EST and 11:20 AM EST, when the Moon enters Aries!

AN ACT OF COURAGE

Thursday, January 5, 2017:

Following a quiet morning on Thursday, the impatient Aries Moon squares off with the rigid Capricorn Sun for the First Quarter Lunar Phase at 2:47 PM EST.

The First Quarter Square of the Lunar Cycle asks that you take direct action on what you began a week ago at the Capricorn New Moon. Tension between your needs and desires push you forward. What action can you take that will lead toward productive growth of the seed you planted on December 29th? You will know you are taking the correct action by the courage required.

The aggressive Aries Moon is further complicated Thursday evening with a square to transformative Pluto at 5:17 PM EST and a conjunction to unsettling Uranus at 11:14 PM EST.

Be aware of the actions you must take even as you should remain cautious to not act hastily. This is a day of action; do what must be done with courage, caution, and compassion.

 

CALM BEFORE PASSION

Friday, January 6, 2017:

The tension from Thursday has lightened considerably by the time you begin the day on Friday. If you did what you needed to do on Thursday, Friday morning should be quite pleasant. You feel strong, solid, and stable in the conviction and certainty of your path forward. Uranus’ recent forward motion is assisting as the future calls.

A lovely Moon trine Mercury aspect at 1:41 PM EST enables you to express your emotions with confidence, kindness, and ease.

A feeling of stabilization increases when the Moon enters patient dependable Taurus at 3:18 PM EST. This is an evening for relaxation. The anxiety of the election season is passed; there is nothing further to do but wait and watch. The hustle and bustle of the holidays is also behind us; now, you need rest.

However, as the evening approaches, you feel the powerful connection between the Capricorn Sun and obsessive Pluto which will be exact in the early hours of Saturday. This is an aspect of great passion and power. Enjoy the buildup. On Saturday, there will be little to hold you back from pursuing your desires.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:41 PM EST until she enters Taurus at 3:18 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.

PASSION AND POWER

Saturday, January 7, 2017:

Pay attention to the circumstances you wake up surrounded by on Saturday morning. Do not be taken by surprise by unresolved or looming power dynamics between yourself and another. You will feel a big shift moving beneath the surface.

Hold your tongue if things get heated. If you wake up Saturday morning with a responsive lover by your side, take advantage of passion offered. If you encounter a negative passionate response, disengage yourself from the circumstance and seek introspection and time alone. Hold your awareness on the inner transformation at hand.

At 8:06 AM EST, Venus joins the karmic South Node asking you to look to your past relationships. What or who do you need to forgive, or whom do you need to ask forgiveness of, in order to move forward into the relationship dynamics of your dreams?

Saturday’s steadfast Taurus Moon forms lovely supportive aspects to dreamy Neptune, assertive Mars, powerful Pluto, and the vital Sun. This day will become easier and more stable as the day goes on. A calm quiet evening of relaxation is in order.

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

from 9:23 PM EST on Saturday evening until she enters Gemini at 5:07 PM EST on Sunday evening. 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.

 

MERCURY TURNS DIRECT

Sunday, January 8, 2017:

How good it will feel to wake up on Sunday morning! While you slept, Mercury turned direct at 4:43 AM EDT. Now, you are ready to take your first tentative steps forward with projects and plans that will move ahead over the coming months.

The Moon is in Taurus VOC* for the entire day until she enters Gemini at 5:07 PM EST. This is a day of preparation, physically calm, and quiet even as your mind is racing forward.

Tomorrow morning, when the Moon is in Gemini and Mercury is beginning to move forward, you may be surprised at the energy that will return to your body and mind.

Spend the evening with family or friends making plans for new projects or upcoming travels. Get your ideas and plans down in writing; begin a concrete plan that will match and support your goals and desires.

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

from 9:23 PM EST on Saturday evening until she enters Gemini at 5:07 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.

”Dance Me To The End Of Love”

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 
Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in 
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 
Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone 
Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon 
Show me slowly what I only know the limits of 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on 
Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long 
We’re both of us beneath our love, we’re both of us above 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born 
Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn 
Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn 
Dance me to the end of love 

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin 
Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in 
Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove 
Dance me to the end of love 
Dance me to the end of love

TAURUS FULL MOON: INDULGE YOUR SENSES

Monday, November 14, 2016:

What a way to start the week!  The Taurus Full Moon is exact at 8:52 AM EST.

Consider that when the Moon is in Taurus, the Sun is in its opposite sign of Scorpio.  Scorpio compels us to look into the deepest crevices and probe the darkest secrets in order to expose the truth.

Taurus’ agenda is something far different. Taurus seeks contentment and pleasure, finding stability and simplicity in opposition to the complexity and intensity of Scorpio.

Today, take a moment to slow down and indulge your senses. Pay attention to what your body wants. Go ahead and give yourself permission to eat that chocolate cake if that is what you want.

Consider what matters the most to you. Reconnect with your deepest roots. Find the patience necessary to build the structure that will support your future. Look clearly and honestly at exactly where you find yourself. Move forward from that spot with eyes wide open. Send LOVE outward from your heart into the Universe.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:52 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 8:23 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.

 

TAP INTO CREATIVE THINKING

Tuesday, November 15, 2016:

Tuesday is likely to feel very active on an emotional level; a series of ups and downs. The restless Gemini Moon moves quickly to gather information in all circumstances. Early in the day, confusion may cloud your thinking as the Moon squares (challenges) elusive Neptune (10:53 AM EST).

If you have significant communications to deliver, wait until after 12:22 PM EST when Mercury forms a sexile aspect to Mars. This offers you the opportunity to engage in quick, sharp and creative thinking well into the evening hours.

At 6:35 PM EST, the curious Gemini Moon trine philosophical Jupiter offers enthusiasm and a confident state of mind. However, these Moon aspects don’t last long and several hours later (9:33 PM EST), the Moon opposes Saturn. This energy could slip you into a heavy hearted, lonely, or tired state of mind. Consider that it may be a simple reminder to pay attention to something or someone you have been neglecting. Do not neglect your loved ones. Give them the kindness, love, and attention that they need, it will equally feed your own heart.

Wednesday, November 16, 2016:

Wednesday begins with the excitement of the chatty Gemini Moon making a positive sextile aspect to unconventional and exciting Uranus. Expect unexpected conversations, communications, thoughts, and inspirational ideas. This energy will stick around throughout the day as the Moon is VOC* following this aspect and there is nothing else of note until the Moon enters Cancer at 5:57 PM EST.

At this point, you will do best to sit together with your loved ones. Hold them close, watch a sappy movie, and eat whatever your heart desires. Go for the chocolate cake and ice cream. Give yourself permission. If you are alone, do the same for yourself (the sappy movie, cake and ice cream) and take a hot bath. Pamper yourself.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:57 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 7:57 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.

 

ATTENTION ON LOVE

Thursday, November 17, 2016:

Thursday offers up another day of shifting emotions. In the early part of the day, you can tap into sweetness, love, and your open heart as the nurturing Cancer Moon and Venus (in Capricorn) sit across the table from each other with a clear view and understanding that love must be powerfully and intentionally created in difficult times.

As the Moon trine mystical Neptune at 11:04 AM EST, it is time to turn your eyes toward deep sensitivity, compassion, and your connection to the divine.

By evening, you may encounter emotional tension or stress as you consider how issues of manipulation and control can be sidestepped or unplugged from their source of power.

With the Moon in domestic, sensitive Cancer, it is best to focus your attention on the care and love of those you choose to call ‘family’. If it becomes difficult to do that, head to bed early.  As with all Moon transits, this will pass easily.

 

INSPIRED WHIMSY

Friday, November 18, 2016:

Friday brings another day of emotional sensitivity with the Moon (representative of our emotional nature and our greatest needs) remaining in touchy Cancer until 10:14 PM EST.

Mental Mercury squaring elusive Neptune (11:03 AM EST) may leave you confused and even baffled by your own thoughts. You may struggle with even simple communications. If you have communications that are important, this is not the day to present them. You may discover that the conversation you are having is not being heard as you intend it.

Please pay attention to what is true and what is simply imagination or illusion. Do not take what you hear as fact without double-checking the accuracy and the source. Do not pass on anything you are not sure of. This aspect can be used creatively. Story telling or writing a short story of inspired whimsy and imagination is a great use for these energies.

At 5:02 PM EST, the affectionate Cancer Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to the Sun in Scorpio. This suggests an evening when you can put tender kindness and emotional nurturing on the menu. You are able to freely explore your most tender loving connections.

At 10:14 PM EST, when the Moon enters Leo you may prefer to do something creative or playful rather than get to sleep! Enjoy! Friday will be a more outgoing and exuberant day.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:02 PM EST until she enters Leo at 10:14 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.

ELUSIVE INSPIRATION

Saturday, November 19, 2016:

With the Moon in expressive, fun loving Leo, you can anticipate a friendly, creative weekend. However, slow down; first, you must get through the morning.

It would be best to spend the morning hours engaging in an independent physical activity. Go for a bike ride or a run. With the Moon opposed assertive Mars at 11:49 AM EST, the dynamics are ripe for aggravation and anger. Again, this is a Moon aspect and will not last very long; by mid afternoon, that energy lightens up.

At 6:00 PM EST, when the Leo Moon trine thoughtful Mercury, your communications will flow easily bringing you into a pleasant evening of generosity and play.

At 6:03 PM EST, Venus sextile Neptune; this offers you the possibility of bringing inspiration and lovely imagination to your relationships and your personal values.

Open your heart to accept the gift of compassion and inspiration, allow love to flow easily even if it is elusive and lacking solid form. Don’t try to hold on, allow it to slip easily into mystical dream space.

 

SPREAD HOPE

Sunday, November 20, 2016:

Sunday is a very quiet day astrologically. Take advantage of this. The Leo Moon forms pleasing aspects to Jupiter and Saturn while we are still sleeping so they will not have an impact other than in your dreams.  Perhaps, you will notice both expansive and stabilizing dreams in the early morning hours. Write them down. You will notice if you write your dreams down each morning over time you will remember them more and more. Your dreams have messages and much to teach you.

At 12:08 PM EST, when the Moon trine Uranus, gather with your community or friends. Enjoy the afternoon. We have all been under so much stress in the past weeks. This is an excellent opportunity to open your mind are body to playful self-expression and joyous inspirations. Spread hope. Spread joy.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: November 7, 2016 through November 13, 2016

With Mars, Venus, and Mercury all changing signs this week, we can anticipate an unusually busy week with many unexpected shifts occurring upon unstable ground.

Very early Wednesday morning (in EST), Mars, the planet of courage, assertiveness, anger, and possibly even violence leaves steadfast Capricorn behind to enter the unpredictable realm of Aquarius. Pay attention to your actions and the actions of others. You can anticipate folks resorting to unexpected, unusual, and erratic ways of acquiring their desires. Mars will remain in Aquarius until December 19th.

Near midnight (in EST) on Friday, Venus, the planet of diplomacy, partnership, and refinement leaves the freedom of Sagittarius behind to enter authoritative, conservative Capricorn. In Capricorn, the planet of love and our resources seeks serious commitment to our personal values within these areas. In Capricorn, Venus demands hard work to acquire our desires. Venus will remain in Capricorn until December 7th.

On Saturday morning, Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and perception leaves the intensity of Scorpio behind to move into freedom seeking Sagittarius. Your thoughts should lighten up as you plan a way to expand your awareness of the larger world around you. Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 2nd.

MAKE THE EFFORT TO AFFECT CHANGE

Monday, November 7, 2016:

The week begins with the Scorpio Sun sextile transformative Pluto. This indicates that an opportunity is offered that will bring powerful internal change. This may be a change of heart, change of mind, change of perspective, or any combination of these.

However, the square aspect formed between the unconventional Aquarius Moon and the suspicious Scorpio Sun brings a serious challenge to any change being contemplated.

Do not shy away from the effort. If you see an opportunity offered, take it. Perhaps it is not an easy process, but the work involved will serve you well in the days and weeks to come.

Consider your most private struggles to move toward change. Make the effort to see these struggles objectively. Look at alternative viewpoints and understand the necessity for change.

This is the First Quarter Square of the lunar cycle. It is time to take the appropriate action. Do you know what that action is? What seed did you plant at the New Moon? Push it forward with an action taken on Monday.

The Moon trine expansive Jupiter and is sextile serious, hardworking Saturn which supports forward motion. Go ahead. Make the effort.

DON’T FORGET TO VOTE TOMORROW.

 

 

VOTE: THEN TURN INWARD

Tuesday, November 8, 2016:

For Tuesday’s weather report, I will avoid thinking or mentioning too much about the fact that this is the day of the US presidential election. The only thing I will say about it is: “Please Vote”. If possible, do your voting before 8:55 AM EST or after 4:46 PM EST.  Regardless of when you vote, VOTE.

The revolutionary Aquarius Moon forms a supportive sextile to sweet Venus just before the Moon goes VOC*. This allows our minds and hearts to maintain some availability and openness throughout the day.

At 4:46 PM EST, when the Moon enters elusive, susceptible Pisces we may find it difficult to understand how to move through an environment that feels vague, intangible, and confusing.

You may be tempted to spend the evening in front of the television or drinking heavily. Time on your meditation cushion will serve you, the culture, and the planet better. Go inward. Settle your own internal demons. Watch as the cards fall where they may. Know that you have done all that you can do.

Everyone you meet is feeling the stress. Offer kindness and rich compassion to yourself and all you encounter.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:55 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 4:46 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.

 

 

COURAGE MEETS REVOLUTION/ INNOVATION

Wednesday, November 9, 2016:

In the midst of the fluid, surreal environment we find ourselves in (Moon in Pisces), courageous Mars the planet of courage, assertiveness, and even violence leaves the sign of the adult (Capricorn) behind to enter the unpredictable realm of the Revolutionary (Aquarius).

Unusual and unconventional ways of achieving your goals may come to mind and be rapidly acted upon. Channel this energy with some caution and integrity. Put your energy into humanitarian goals rather than personal ones.

Pay attention to your actions and the actions of others. You can anticipate folks resorting to unexpected, unusual, and erratic ways of acquiring their desires. Mars will remain in Aquarius until December 19th.

At 7:50 PM EST, the mystical Pisces Moon squares cautious Saturn suggesting that idealism may turn to frustration. You may experience the feeling of frustration and exhaustion. Shortly after midnight when the Pisces Moon trine the Scorpio Sun, your energy will return, bringing with it a brighter day on Thursday.

 

 

CLARITY, COURAGE, DETERMINATION

Thursday, November 10, 2016:

On Thursday, the intuitive Pisces Moon forms a trine aspect to the transformative Scorpio Sun and Mercury (also in the profoundly intense sign of Scorpio). You may breathe a sign of relief or acceptance. When the Moon squares lovely Venus at 6:15 PM EST, you may not understand the implications as you move forward into this new state of relief or acceptance.  You (and all of us) have held much anxiety over the past weeks and possibly months!

At 8:45 PM EST, as the Moon enters assertive Aries, your confusion and lack of clarity is released. You feel stronger, more determined, and ready to take on whatever challenges lay ahead. Be careful not to embody an attitude of arrogance. Allow your thinking to settle down into a kinder space as the Aries Moon approaches a sextile to Mars at bedtime (EST). Friday will bring more clarity, more courage, and more determination to move ahead. 

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:17 PM EST until she enters Aries at 8:45 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.

 

 

ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER

Friday, November 11, 2016:

You may feel inpatient with Friday’s lack of activity after the buildup of anxiety over the past weeks. You may feel more on edge than you expected you would at this point in the process. We are now three days into the outcome of the USA elections. Have we settled yet?

At 6:46 PM EST, when the Moon opposes optimistic Jupiter you may see your need to continue the development of courage and your need to bring others into your inner circle to help pave the way.

When the assertive Aries Moon squares compulsive Pluto at 10:09 PM EDT, you may have difficulty managing the intensity you find yourself engaged in. However, when the Moon trine Saturn shortly thereafter, you realize that you are able to stabilize the situation, maintain a mature handle on your circumstances, and utilize the situation for personal growth. Moving through this day is really just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other without engaging in your own self-created inner turmoil.

Just before midnight Venus, the planet of our personal values enters the cautious, mature sign of Capricorn where she will stay until December 7th. Over the coming days and weeks, we will learn the importance of patience. Delayed gratification and deep abiding patience support the true lasting value of our desires.

CANDLELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Saturday, November 12, 2016:

Saturday morning, we wake up with lovely Venus newly in mature Capricorn ready to teach us all about patience in love. There is no rushing true, lasting love. You must take your time, hold steady, and develop the integrity and bedrock of your own true values.

Mercury, the planet of intellect and thought process, has been developing deep connections and intensity since entering Scorpio on October 24th.  At 9:39 AM EST, Mercury leaves Scorpio behind to enter Sagittarius where your philosophical understanding of your place in the world is ready to grow in wisdom. Consider the centaur (half human and half horse) that is the symbol of Sagittarius. Visualize that the centaur is releasing the arrow high in the air. The perspective of Sagittarius is not the perspective of the centaur. The perspective of Sagittarius is the perspective of the arrow at its highest altitude.

Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 2nd. Take advantage of this time to allow your mind to grow in awareness, inclusion, and understanding. Share your understanding with others while allowing each person to draw their own conclusions and develop their own opinions. We are all so different in our view of the world. Diversity is what makes it all work. Love the differences.

At 9:23 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus inviting us to seek sensual pleasures and beauty. Spend the evening with a lover or an art project. The night is made to create beauty, comfort, and earthly reverence. Candlelight and tasty treats are in order.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:45 AM EST until she enters Taurus at 9:23 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.

 

 

EMBRACE BEAUTY & LOVE

Sunday, November 13, 2016:

Sunday is a simple, and possibly, sleepy day made for pleasure. There may be little reason to get out of bed other than possibly to create wonderful food to further deepen the pleasure of the day.

With much stress now left behind, you may really need this day of rest. Create a nest to luxuriate in, binge watch a TV series, or watch a few lovely movies. The other choice for the day would be to spend time in nature connecting with the reality and solidity of the natural world. Get out and soak in the dependability of the land; commune with the trees or the ocean. Allow nature to move your soul.

At 9:46 PM EST, the Moon trine Pluto offers you the opportunity to absorb the power in nature and the power of love. We are closing in on the Taurus Full Moon on Monday, a time of full illumination of the connection to stability and reverence that Taurus offers. Embrace Love.
