DON’T TAKE THE BAIT

Monday, May 22, 2017:

Monday will likely be a high-energy day in all the best and most challenging ways possible. All aspects are aspects of the transiting Aries Moon. Keep in mind that Moon aspects refer to quick moving situations and their impact will not last, except through our response to them.

The Moon is in fiercely courageous Aries heightening your impulsiveness, assertiveness, and even your libido!

At 10:10 AM EDT, when the Moon joins with Venus, you know what you desire and are willing to take any risk for love.

At 2:44 PM EDT, you may encounter resistance in the form of power struggles, anger, or obsessive thoughts bringing up issues that have been previously hidden. Don’t take the bait. Remain self-contained and it will all look far more manageable by Tuesday following the Moon’s entrance into steadfast calm Taurus.

Everyone may encounter a sense of being a bit too hot under the collar, but for all of us our bark may be bigger than our bite.

 

 

FOCUS ON SELF CARE

Tuesday, May 23, 2017:

After the ruckus and turmoil of Monday, we are soothed by the Moon’s entrance into Taurus at 8:33 AM EDT. This is a good day to pay attention to the ways in which you connect with the pleasures of your senses. Seek contentment, indulgence, comfort, and beauty.

Keep in mind that we are in the Dark Phase of the Moon, only a few days from the Gemini New Moon on Thursday. This suggests a time of inward contemplation, a time to find those things that bring contentment and satisfaction on a deeply personal level.

Wednesday will bring much the same. Find as much time as possible to focus on self-care.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:00 AM EDT until she enters Taurus at 8:33 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.

 

 

INNER REFLECTION

Wednesday, May 24, 2017:

Helen by Edward Poynter via SightsWithin

Wednesday should be a great day to channel the dependable, level-headed Taurus Moon into constructive effort as she forms a powerful trine aspect to compelling powerful Pluto at 3:08 PM EDT. The gift of this competent and vigorous energy will remain with you throughout the day.

Keep in mind that with the Moon VOC* Wednesday afternoon, it is a time to work on already established projects, not a time to start anything new. Also, we are still in the Dark Phase of the Moon, and it is best to remain on the hushed unobtrusive side in all things. Inner reflection could bring deep self-understanding.

Enjoy a quiet evening with good food, loving connection, a hot bath, and a massage (if you can get one – or give one).

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:08 PM EDT until she enters Gemini on Thursday morning at 8:16 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.

 

 

GEMINI NEW MOON – POWERFUL CONVERSATIONS

Thursday, May 25, 2017:

Thursday is a powerhouse of a day; the day that defines the entire week.

At 12:21 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of love, money, and all that we hold most dear, forms a challenging square aspect to Pluto, the planet of destruction and transformation. This brings us to the First Quarter Square of a cycle that began in late November 2016. This is a cycle empowering your values, your love relationships, and your connection to your resources.

What began for you in November? Did you begin a new engagement with love, money, your deep values, or beauty? Think back to that time, determine what you began in this arena and take a specific action to bring it forward. The full illumination of the cycle will be clear on August 15th, 2017.

This square aspect between Venus and Pluto can bring relationship issues to a crisis point where change must occur. If someone you love brings a concern to the table on Thursday, do your best to practice deep listening and resist unconscious reactions. Keep your heart and mind open to the fact that change does not have to destroy our relationships or our prosperity, it can deeply and grandly empower us as we move forward.

At 8:16 AM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini to join the Gemini Sun for the New Moon at 3:45 PM EDT. Prepare for your New Moon ritual but give it a day or so before you perform the ritual. It is best to wait for the Moon to gain a bit of distance from the Sun.

The Gemini New Moon is planting a seed of communication or seed of gathering information. Form your aspirations with this in mind.

If you begin a new significant conversation on Thursday. pay attention to how that conversation engages your thinking and how the relationship grows over the coming month.

For your Gemini New Moon ritual, set an intention regarding curiosity, the expansion of knowledge, and your ability to communicate what you understand. This is the perfect time to start a friendship or a conversation. Perhaps, you can arrange the time and space to begin an important conversation.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds 4° Gemini, it will help you clarify where to direct your intellectual curiosity. If you don’t have that information, simply go with your instinct of what area of your life learning wants to grow in intellectual understanding.

Please don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple, take a moment to write down what ideas or learning you wish to begin, create, or increase in this upcoming cycle.

Have two candles available for the ritual; light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are in this moment. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, when you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are choosing to create as you bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day and at the Full Moon in two weeks, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Gemini New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of intellect, inquisitiveness, enthusiasm, and new conversations. Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:08 PM EDT on Wednesday until she enters Gemini on Tuesday at 8:16 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.

 

 

APOLOGIZE, IF NECESSARY

Friday, May 26, 2017:

On Friday, you can let all the complexities of Thursday settle into your system; much about this day will be about assimilation and moving forward with your intentions. Friday is a considerably less complex day, even with the Moon still in active, curious, talkative Gemini.

The morning begins with the chatty Gemini Moon forming a challenging square to ethereal Neptune at 6:25 AM EDT. This could suggest misunderstandings or confusion at the breakfast table and a lack of clarity on how to proceed into the day.

At 3:50 PM EDT, as the Moon sextiles lovely Venus, you may find yourself speaking or hearing words of appreciation and love. Enjoy connecting. Take action to move closer to your desires in relationship, love, and finances.

At 10:20 PM EDT, as the Moon conjuncts assertive Mars, you may find that you have spoken more than you intended to or were not as diplomatic as you could have been with your words. If you need to apologize, do so before sleep. With awareness and self-responsibility, the issue will pass quickly, as Moon transits do. The apology will help.

NURTURE FAMILY AND HEARTH

Saturday, May 27, 2017:

The Moon begins Saturday morning VOC*, still in Gemini but moves into domestic Cancer at 7:25 AM EDT. As we set aside the quick, sometimes frenetic energy of Gemini, we enter into a weekend with the focus on family, nurturance, and deep emotional connection. This is an astrologically quiet day which leaves us to engage fully in what the Cancer Moon offers.

As the Moon moves through the zodiac, it sets the emotional tone of our days.

With the Moon in family-oriented Cancer, you will want to engage in maternal activities revolving around home and family. You may feel sentimental and even absorbed in memories of the past. Your emotions are heightened, you may experience significant mood swings, and want to retreat to the safety of home and a private environment. This is a time of sensitivity; a time to seek comfort by sticking with what is familiar. Enjoy comfort foods, take a long hot bath and spend time with children or the elderly engaging in activities that nurture the heart.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:19 AM EDT until she enters Cancer at 7:25 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.

 

 

ENGAGE DEVOTION – SPREAD LOVE

Sunday, May 28, 2017:

Sunday begins with Mercury, the planet that represents our thinking and communication, forming a lovely sextile aspect to Neptune, the planet of compassion and devotion.

On March 4, 2017, when Mercury and Neptune joined together in Pisces, did you start or increase your meditation practice or did your thinking turn in a new direction of transcendence? This was the beginning of a year-long cycle of immersing your mind in imagination, compassion, or the mystical.

Sunday provides an opportunity to explore ways to increase your view of the world from a mystic, inclusive, and inspired perspective.  Engage fully in prayer or meditation.

The Moon continues through tender Cancer asking that you stay close to home, family, and loved ones. Mid-afternoon, there could be power and control issues, as the Moon opposes Pluto at 2:05 PM EDT. Again, the quick moving Moon transits give us the opportunity to see the issues for future consideration and learning. However, do not respond to any bait given. Allow the issues to roll past without unconscious engagement.

Spread love.

EXPRESS KINDNESS

Monday, May 1, 2017:

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

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

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

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:23 PM EDT until shortly after midnight when she enters Leo. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

ENTHUSIASM & SELF-EXPRESSION

Tuesday, May 2, 2017:

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

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

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

MOVING FORWARD – MERCURY DIRECT

Wednesday, May 3, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

DEDICATE YOURSELF TO SERVICE

Thursday, May 4, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

 

PLAN FOR ACHIEVEMENT

Friday, May 5, 2017:

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

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

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

RELATIONSHIP CONSIDERATIONS

Saturday, May 6, 2017:

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

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

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

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

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:43 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 2:21 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

HARMONIOUS CONNECTIONS

Sunday, May 7, 2017:

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

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

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

DETERMINATION MEETS CONFUSION

Monday, February 27, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

BOLD COURAGEOUS LOVE

Tuesday, February 28, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

So let’s talk a little bit about Aquarius.

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

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

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

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

HIGH EXPECTATIONS

Monday, January 16, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

FLOWERS – DELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Tuesday, January 17, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

ENJOY THE MORNING, THEN GET SERIOUS

Wednesday, January 18, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

SUN ENTERS AQUARIUS – A SENSE OF REBELLION

Thursday, January 19, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

CONNECT DEEPLY

Friday, January 20, 2017:

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

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

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

RELEASE CONTROL

Saturday, January 21, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

 

FUN ADVENTURES

Sunday, January 22, 2017:

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

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

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

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