DETERMINATION MEETS CONFUSION

Monday, February 27, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:07 PM EST until she interested Aries at 11:51 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

 

BOLD COURAGEOUS LOVE

Tuesday, February 28, 2017:

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

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

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

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

SIDESTEP HOTSPOTS

Wednesday, March 1, 2017:

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

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

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

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

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

 

CONNECT WITH KINDNESS

Thursday, March 2, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

SIMPLY REST

Friday, March 3, 2017:

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

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

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

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

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

VENUS RETROGRADE – WHAT DO YOU VALUE?

Saturday March 4, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

ACTION TO STABILIZE

Sunday, March 5, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

CLEAR THE PATHWAY TO LOVE

Monday, February 6, 2017:

The week begins with the Moon in talkative Gemini, pay attention and you may notice that people are very willing to talk about their emotions. Throughout the course of the day, you will find plenty of people to talk to and things to talk about.

The Moon forms lovely aspects to the vital Sun, inspirational Uranus, and idealistic Jupiter. Your conversations should have an air of expansion and the ability to stimulate excitement. Monday will be a great day to engage in any writing projects or public speaking.

The big news on Monday is that Jupiter, the planet of enthusiasm, confidence, and philosophy turns retrograde at 23° Libra. Jupiter has been moving direct since May 2016, it has been in Libra, the sign of partnership and diplomacy, since September 9, 2016.

If you have been confidently moving forward in a relationship or other diplomatic project, now is the time to slow down and look carefully at any places you may have expanded too quickly or any places where you have not built in the proper structure and groundwork to support the next steps forward. Jupiter will remain retrograde until June 9, 2017.

Over the coming months, you would be well advised to revisit conversations, plans, and expectations that have previously been made (or assumed) with loved ones or partners. You may feel quite differently regarding your partners or your ideas related to the relationship in general, now than you did in May 2016. Does your partner know what has changed in your heart? Make sure the road is clear before pushing forward again in June.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:53 PM EST until she enters Cancer on Tuesday morning at 2:03 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.

 

 

CLARITY OF MIND

Tuesday, February 7, 2017:

Don’t be surprised when you wake up Tuesday morning feeling moody and emotional, and yet also intellectually inquisitive, with great mental clarity and unusual ideas.

Mercury, the planet that represents your thinking, communications, and even your perceptions, just entered unconventional, quirky Aquarius while you slept.  Mercury is moving quite quickly and will only remain in Aquarius until February 25th.  Enjoy the sharp clarity that Mercury brings in this sign, as you are able to think and communicate from a space of objectivity and without being overwhelmed with emotional depth or confusion.

This is a time when your thinking can enter innovative and unpredictable realms. During this time, you may find very unusual and unexpected solutions to problems that have recently seemed insurmountable. During times of Mercury in Aquarius, your thinking can move far outside the box of convention and into new, unpredictable arenas.

A large part of the day may hold some anxiety as you attempt to adjust to this new way of thinking because for the past month Mercury has been in conservative, authoritative Capricorn. This move signals a big change in attitude and thought.

At 8:20 PM EST, when the Cancer Moon forms a smooth flowing trine aspect to Neptune, you are able to release anxiety and allow compassion and your softer emotions to move through you, allowing you to deeply understand others and to express a very tender side of love.

 

 

THE VALUE OF FACING FEAR

The Two Brothers by Elenore Abbotta via Wiki Commons

The Two Brothers by Elenore Abbotta via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, February 8, 2017:

On Wednesday, the highly emotional Cancer Moon triggers the familiar ongoing anxiety within the culture as represented in the cardinal T-square between transformative Pluto, revolutionary Uranus, and expansive Jupiter.

On a personal level, your emotions may be quite close to the surface. It is easy to feel vulnerable and possibly afraid of the circumstances and the position you find yourself in.

At 4:59 PM EST, the tender Cancer Moon forms a challenging square aspect with Jupiter, you may experience this as a feeling of being overwhelmed by circumstances beyond your control.

As the Moon trines Chiron, we are directed to stay engaged, rather than turning away from your fear, but looking directly into the face of fear. You may find an unexpected pathway into your own healing by directly engaging with your deepest fears.

Offer compassion and love to those you encounter.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:59 PM EST until she enters Leo on Thursday morning at 4:41 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.

 

 

OPPORTUNITIES AND EPIPHANIES

Thursday, February 9, 2017:

I expect that you will feel like a great weight has lifted when you wake up Thursday morning. The Moon has moved into dramatic Leo bringing light, warmth, and expressive color to the day.

At 12:20 PM EST, the playful Leo Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to Venus, the planet of love and value.  Allow a sweet flow between the love you give and the love you receive. Take nothing for granted and continue to offer a warm heart of generosity.

At 4:16 PM EST, the most significant aspect of the day brings a sextile between the Sun and non-conformist Uranus. A sextile offers opportunities and possibilities. The cycle between the Sun and Uranus is a cycle of developing individuality, reaching for what is unusual, and allowing yourself to go against the grain of cultural expectations.

This cycle began in early April of 2016. Think about what began in your life at that time. Now, you have the possibility of creatively engaging in a process of releasing or changing the form of what began that time. If what began then is still of value in your life, it is now time to get creative about how to begin a new form in mid April 2017. Explore ideas that will bring deep inspiration to the conversation. Keep your eyes open for unconventional and unusual epiphanies!

 

 

LEO FULL MOON, LUNAR ECLIPSE

Friday, February 10, 2017:

Friday begins relatively slowly, although we have an underlying awareness of the intense illumination of the evenings Leo Full Moon.

Before we get there however, we encounter mental Mercury sextile (the aspect of possibility) sensual Venus at 4:18 PM EST. This offers you the opportunity to fully express your deepest values within social situations or within intimate love partnerships. This may suggest a time to say what has previously been left unspoken. Depending on your circumstances, those words could be of connection or disconnection. The point is you are given the opportunity to make your position known.

Say what needs to be said to bring love forward. What direction or pathway do your deepest values call you to follow? Share what is true for you and expect to hear what is true for others.

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is exact at 22° Leo at 7:33 PM EST. Perhaps, it is those words that are finally said that allow for a shift to occur that will change the course of the coming months. This is a time of resetting your emotions, allow your focus to rest on playful or creative self-expression. You may not know the change that is brewing inside, but a shift happens.

The corresponding Solar Eclipse, which occurs on February 26th, will assist in resetting your more objective intentions for forward focus and movement. For now, pay attention to the area of your chart that holds 22° Leo, say what needs to be said, and allow your heart to pivot with creativity, and colorful self-expression.

OFFER HELP

Saturday February 11, 2017:

If possible, let yourself sleep late on Saturday morning. At 8:52 AM EST, the Moon enters practical, analytical Virgo. Following the powerfully changing energies of Friday, Saturday is the day to turn to practical, detail-oriented work.

I know, this is not what you wanted to hear, after all, it is the weekend. However, you will come to the end of the day feeling much better if you focus your time on practical effort. Go ahead, get caught up on house cleaning, laundry, or attend to those jobs and projects that you know must be done.

At 10:25 AM EST, the Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to optimistic Jupiter. This allows you to deeply enjoy whatever task you choose to focus your efforts on. If you need help, this is the day to ask for it; if you see others in need, this is the day to offer help. The more work that you accomplish or the more help that you provide, the better you will feel when you head to sleep at the end of the day.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:53 AM EST until she ventures into Virgo at 8:52 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.

 

 

DREAM. WORK. UNDERSTAND.

Sunday, February 12, 2017:

If it’s possible, Sunday will be another good morning to sleep late. In the wee hours of the morning, there is an opposition between the Virgo Moon and imaginative elusive Neptune. Stay asleep to enjoy the dreams that Neptune brings.

The Moon continues through productive hard-working Virgo until mid-day on Monday.

Stick with some of the projects you may have started on Saturday. You are going to feel great at the end of this weekend with all the work you can finish. The house will be tidy and you may even have a few closets, or even the attic cleaned out!

Enjoy accomplishing your own tasks or get out and help your neighbors and friends.

At 6:02 PM EST, the Moon trine Pluto brings a flow of intensification to your conversations and connections. Powerful dynamics come to the table. It is important that we listen to each other, allow the words you hear from others to get through. Listen. You do not have to agree to hear and understand. Understanding someone else’s viewpoint does not have to weaken your own.

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

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

Angel of Day 168 by Kontrola via Wiki Commons

Angel of Day 168 by Kontrola via Wiki Commons

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

So let’s talk a little bit about Aquarius.

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

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

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

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

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.

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

Monday, January 16, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

FLOWERS – DELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Tuesday, January 17, 2017:

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

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

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

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

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:10 AM EST until 6:16 AM EST when she enters Libra. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

ENJOY THE MORNING, THEN GET SERIOUS

Wednesday, January 18, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS – A SENSE OF REBELLION

Thursday, January 19, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:55 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 5:10 PM EST Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

CONNECT DEEPLY

Friday, January 20, 2017:

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

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

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

RELEASE CONTROL

Saturday, January 21, 2017:

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

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

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

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

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:25 PM EST until she interests Sagittarius on Sunday at 5:46 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

FUN ADVENTURES

Sunday, January 22, 2017:

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

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

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

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

ANXIETY & EXCITEMENT

Monday, December 5, 2016:

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

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

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:23 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 11:31 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

PLANNING AHEAD

Tuesday, December 6, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wednesday, December 7, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

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

COURAGEOUS BELIEFS

Thursday, December 8, 2016:

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

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

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

 

 

EXPAND YOUR PERSPECTIVE

Friday, December 9, 2016:

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

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

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

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

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

FACING RESPONSIBILITIES; ADJUSTING DREAMS

Saturday, December 10, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

A SPARK OF EXCITEMENT

Sunday, December 11, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

SUN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS – EXPANDING WISDOM

Monday, November 21, 2016:

Monday begins with the Last Quarter Square of the lunar cycle – exact at 3:34 AM EST. With the Moon in expressive Leo and the Sun in secretive Scorpio, the week begins with an internal argument between your need for expression and your desire for privacy.

At 4:35 AM EST, the Moon enters critical Virgo bringing us into a day of analyzing and organizing in preparation for the week.

At 4:42 PM EST, the Sun having been in private Scorpio for the past month, happily enters freedom-seeking Sagittarius. You are ready to lighten up a bit, leave some intensity behind to explore new adventures and expanded perspectives. It feels like you can finally bring a larger perspective into view. You may be ready to explore new areas of personal growth and philosophical understanding.

At 10:08 PM EST, the Moon opposes elusive Neptune offering sweet slumber and dreams of future possibilities.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:34 AM EST until she enters for now at 4:35 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

EXPAND YOUR THINKING

Tuesday, November 22, 2016:

Tuesday’s Virgo Moon is highly active throughout the morning. With a square to Mercury at 9:32 AM EST, the naturally critical Virgo Moon may have you questioning your ability to accomplish what needs to be done. From there, you may swing into an exaggerated sense of your own abilities with a trine to Pluto at 10:38 AM EST.

On the heels of that, the Moon squares Saturn at 12:42 PM EST, which brings you back to questioning your abilities. All of that back and forth activity may leave you feeling out of balance and uncertain of yourself.

However, if you can set your self criticism aside and simply pay attention to a higher vibration of energy, you will be able to engage with the Mercury sextile Jupiter aspect that is exact at 1:19 PM EST. Seek out a renewal of inspiration and intellectual excitement. Open your mind to new perspectives of thought. Look for conversations that will stretch your ways of thinking about and perceiving the world.

If you are alone, this is an afternoon for study. Read something that will open your mind to new possibilities. These conversations or expanded thinking will not come looking for you; it is important that you make the effort to seek it out.

Remember, a sextile guarantees nothing. A sextile offers an opportunity, a possibility. You must make the effort. If you miss the opportunity, you will be stuck in the moodiness of a highly self-critical day.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:42 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Libra on Wednesday at 2:41 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

RELEASE RIGID THINKING

Wednesday, November 23, 2016:

Early Wednesday afternoon, with the meticulous Virgo Moon VOC*, Mercury, the planet of our thought processes connects with serious, authoritative Saturn. This significant transit may inhibit our conversations or somehow put a block on our ability to gain clarity in our thinking. Don’t be discouraged by this. Go inward and find your true authentic voice. Release rigidity of mind. This begins a cycle that asks you to stabilize your thoughts and get clear on what is most important in the manner in which you perceive your world.

Anything begun now has importance and long-term implications. Do not make decisions quickly or without significant for-thought.

At 2:41 PM EST, the Moon enters diplomatic Libra focusing us on compromise and diplomacy. You may want to focus your attention on stabilizing significant relationship dynamics.

At 6:56 PM EST, with the lovely Libra Moon sextile the exploratory Sagittarius Sun, it is time to look beyond where you have felt stuck. Go out into the world with an attitude of potential, possibility, and excitement.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:42 PM EST on Tuesday until she enters Libra on Wednesday at 2:41 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

SUPPORT EVOLVING CONSCIOUSNESS; HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thursday, November 24, 2016:

Thursday’s lovely Libra Moon tries valiantly to maintain equilibrium and a steady calm on your life and circumstances. However, there are serious challenges and powerful forces working below the surface.

At 6:00 PM EST, expansive Jupiter forms the first of three waning square aspects to transformative Pluto. The energy of this transit has been building for some weeks, peaks now and again at the next two occurrences – March 30, 2017 & August 4, 2017. This difficult transit brings your attention to focus on a powerful long-term process involving the expansion of power and hidden forces. We clearly see where this is playing out in the outer world and in our political system.

Pay attention, also, to where and how it is impacting your personal life. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter) or significant points (North Node, South Node, Midheaven, Ascendant) between 12 & 17 degrees of any Cardinal Sign (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) this will be particularly pronounced in your life.

Be aware of your own tendency (or others) to use excessive force in order to gain power. You must consciously build on kindness and compassion for all humans. This is not a game. We MUST practice the development of evolved humanity beginning with ourselves. There are forces that are utilizing these energies destructively. It is your job to counter that negativity in your own life circumstances and to dig deeply to challenge beliefs that stand in the way of kindness and the growth of evolutionary consciousness.

Contact me for a consultation to discuss how this is impacting your life. I have heard from many of you who are struggling with sadness, fear, anxiety, and anger due to the changes in our political system. Working with your chart will offer perspective and some clarity on the path forward. Use the code ElectionStress for a full 20% discount.

 

FACE YOUR INNER WORK

Friday, November 25, 2016:

On Friday, Venus, the planet of personal values, money, and pleasure, joins the conversation that Pluto and Jupiter began on Thursday. Lovely Venus conjunct powerful Pluto at 6:49 AM EST and squares overextended Jupiter at 8:44 AM EST.

Watch how values and money are highlighted in issues of power and control. Consider your own use and understanding of money and other things of value. Do you harbor private beliefs, or are you behaving in ways, that do not support your highest good and integrity? Work on these issues today. Be aware of greed and underhanded dealings that are rotting our culture to the core. Make sure you are personally managing your own love and money with squeaky clean integrity. The reflection is all around you and your work must start with yourself. It always begins as an inside job.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:53 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 3:02 AM EST on Saturday. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

INSIGHTS COME THROUGH ANXIETY OR EXCITEMENT

Saturday, November 26, 2016:

When we wake up on Saturday, the Moon is in introspective Scorpio.  Look deeply into your own psychological patterns to understand how to work with any fears that may arise throughout the day.  Be patient when dealing with the difficulties your friends and loved ones may be dealing with. Find inner strength and seek deep insights.

At 8:37 AM EST, perceptive Mercury trine unconventional Uranus bringing insights through anxiety or excitement. Mercury is the planet of mind and communication, Uranus is considered ‘The Awakener’. Allow your mind to open to unsettling original thoughts. Your conversations may surprise everyone.

When you head to bed Saturday night, you may have a very different set of ideas than when you awoke Saturday morning. Allow defiance and individuality while maintaining kindness and consideration of how differently we each experience the world.

 

REST – HIBERNATE

Sunday, November 27, 2016:

Rest on Sunday in deep quiet. If you are able to sleep late, you can avoid the one cranky transit of the day. At 6:25 AM EST, the Moon squares angry Mars, putting you on the defense. Allow that energy to work itself out in your dreams.

Later in the day, the Moon forms a sweet aspect to Venus and Pluto allowing you to rest at the end of a stressful week. Time alone is recommended. You likely feel the need to hibernate before the new lunar cycle begins on Monday with the Sagittarius New Moon.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:48 PM EST until she pictures Sagittarius at 3:46 PM EST on Monday.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

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

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