MOVING FORWARD WITH COMFORT AND COURAGE

Monday, April 3, 2017:

This morning, you would rather stay home and avoid work altogether. With the receptive Moon in domestic Cancer, your home and issues of tenderness and love are the concerns you would like to occupy your day.

However, most of us will need to head to work. Early in the day, as the Moon forms an easy trine aspect to Neptune (12:26 PM EDT), it may seem difficult to get your feet firmly on the ground.

Mid-afternoon (2:40 PM EDT), the forceful Aries Sun and protective Cancer Moon form a challenging square aspect bringing us to the First Quarter phase of the Moon. If you think about Cancer’s desire to cuddle with a loved one in a warm nest and Aries’ desire to take a solitary and courageous mountain bike ride, you will understand the challenge between these two energies. Think back to the seed you planted at the New Moon last week. Find a way to use these two conflicting energies to move that process forward.

As soon as your workday is complete, head home, cook a meal for yourself or your family and settle in to any domestic comfort you choose to create.

 

 

ANXIETY TURNS TO PLAY

Tuesday, April 4, 2017:

When you awake on Tuesday morning, your challenging dreams may linger, leaving you with an unsettling sense of anxiety. If you remember those dreams, look for the message within and release any discomfort. The sensitive Cancer Moon forms challenging aspects to excessive Jupiter, subversive Pluto, and unsettling Uranus between late Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Allow yourself to explore unusual patterns. Don’t try to stick with all that is expected of you. Perhaps, it is time to explore a new way of viewing the world. Make contact with folks who will stretch or challenge your viewpoints. Stop assuming your worldview is the only one worthy of airtime.

At 4:46 PM EDT, the tender Cancer Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to lovely Venus allowing a loving connection. Take a break from your work and head outside even for a moment; look at the sky and experience expansive beauty.

At 6:13 PM EDT, the Moon enters exuberant Leo, opening the evening for playful fun, the pleasure of creativity.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:46 PM EDT until she enters Leo at 6:13 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 a significant future impact.

WIND AT YOUR BACK

Wednesday, April 5, 2017:

The most significant aspect on Wednesday happens at the very final moments of the day. Just at midnight, courageous Mars forms a flowing trine aspect to empowered Pluto. When these two mighty planets work together in a harmonious configuration, you can expect great determination and strength of your actions. You are likely to feel highly motivated to move heaven and earth toward the fulfillment of whatever significant plan or project you have embarked upon.

The cycle between Mars and Pluto (a two year cycle) began in August 2016. What did you plunge into at that time that you knew would take great resolve and willpower? Whatever began at that time has reached a point in its growth where the wind is at your back and progress is steady inherently easy. The full expression of this cycle will come in late May. Plan for it!

The Moon and continues through playful Leo encouraging you to spend time with creative pleasures. If you have children in your life, spend time with them; engage on their level of play. Enjoy

 

 

SOUL SEARCHING AND PARADOX

Thursday, April 6, 2017:

On Thursday, Saturn turns retrograde, remaining thus until August 25th. Over the course of this 4 ½ months, it is important to do some soul-searching regarding any long-term commitments that you are considering. This could be around issues of relationship, business, relocation, or your career. If you know the house Saturn is moving through in your chart during this retrograde, that is the most likely area on which to focus your contemplation.

The lovely Leo Moon forms a Grand Trine aspect to exciting Uranus and stable Saturn throughout the afternoon. You should experience an easy sense of satisfaction and excitement simultaneously. You may feel very anchored and reliable even as you feel exhilarant and animated. Hold this paradox with pleasure as for now, both energies hold space together in friendship.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:17 PM EDT until she enters Virgo 20 minutes after midnight. 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.

 

 

BALANCE EXPANSION AND REALITY

Friday, April 7, 2017:

When you wake up on Friday morning, the Moon will have entered practical Virgo. You can go ahead and put away your toys from the last few Leo Moon days.

The efficiency and precision of Virgo is challenged as the Sun opposes optimistic Jupiter at 5:38 PM EDT. This energy definitely flies in the face of practical Virgo as you are pushed to excess, extravagance, and overindulgence.

The cycle between the Sun and Jupiter began in late September. In looking back at that time, consider what you started that was of an expansive nature. What big idea or plan did you begin in September? Now, at the planets’ opposition, look back and see how far you have come with that idea or that plan and then make any adjustments necessary to bring it into its fullest power. Pay attention to the places where you can give or receive big ideas or large pleasures.

It is probably best to leave your credit cards at home as it would be so easy to overspend. Watch where your eyes may be bigger than your stomach…. or your dream has gotten unrealistic. We must always remember the delicate balance between expansion and reality.

CHECK YOURSELF

Saturday, April 8, 2017:

Saturday starts out easily enough. You will probably feel productive and powerful due to a lovely Earth Grand Trine. However, the afternoon brings difficult challenges.

When Venus squares Saturn at 4:28 PM EDT, there may be issues that you can not ignore in your love life and relationships or you may need to face reality (and fear) concerning your finances. Face reality head-on; that does not mean to process things extensively with a partner.

Saturday’s transits will be better managed as an internal private job. Understand the reality of your situation and allowed it to be exactly as it is. Nothing must be resolved in this moment.

At 8:49 PM EDT, when the Sun squares destructive Pluto, you will be happy if you did not engage in any arguments. This challenging aspect insists that you face the truth of your deeper motivations and get clear on what is uncomfortable in your attempts to gain power over others. Be aware of your motivations and face yourself honestly.

If you are ready, bring your understanding of yourself to the table… speak only of your own path, don’t make any statement or assumption of what someone else is bringing to the table.

 

 

A SIMPLE PATH TO WORKING WITH MERCURY RETROGRADE

Sunday, April 9, 2017:

On Sunday morning, the Moon enters cooperative, charming Libra at 8:35 AM EDT. You are ready to re-establish peace and grace into your home and beyond. This is a great morning to go out for brunch with loved ones and friends. You are ready to deepen your connections as you learn the difference between codependency and interdependence. Give this some thought on Sunday morning.

The big news, however, is that at 7:14 PM EDT, Mercury turns retrograde at 4° Taurus. Spend time today preparing for the upcoming three weeks. Mercury will turn direct once again on May 3rd. If you have followed my writing over the years, you are familiar with the best ways to work with Mercury retrograde. Here is your reminder:

4 Simple Steps to Managing Mercury Retrograde!

  1. Don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned!
  2. Get a notebook and a pen. Make a list of everything that you have begun but NOT completed in the past few months.
  3. Get to work! Accomplish what is on this list! Only what is on this list!
  4. Don’t be tempted to start new projects, begin new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs!

Mercury retrograde brings us the gift of time to wrap up loose ends!

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:22 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 8:35 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

IMPULSIVE, DYNAMIC THINKING AHEAD

Monday, March 13, 2017:

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

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

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

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

 

 

A POWERFUL DAY LEADS TO HEALING

Tuesday, March 14, 2017:

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

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

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

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

RELEASE – BREATHE – REPEAT

Wednesday, March 15, 2017:

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

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

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

Release – Breathe – Repeat.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:06 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 11:11 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

EMBRACE INSPIRATION

Thursday, March 16, 2017:

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

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

 

 

RESPONSIBILITY AND SELF-RESPECT

Friday, March 17, 2017:

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

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

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

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

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

WORDS OF LOVE

Saturday, March 18, 2017:

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

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

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

 

 

SEEK A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Sunday, March 19, 2017:

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

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

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

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: December 12, 2016 through December 18, 2016

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

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

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

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

EXCITEMENT

Monday, December 12, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Gemini at 7:42 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

EXPANSION

Tuesday, December 13, 2016:

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

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

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

RADIATE LOVE

Wednesday, December 14, 2016:

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

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

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

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:57 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 7:09 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

A HUMAN REACTION

Thursday, December 15, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:36 PM EST until she enters Leo on Friday at 8:14 AM PST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

REGAL STRENGTH

Friday, December 16, 2016:

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

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

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

PROJECTS & PARTIES

Saturday, December 17, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

PREPARATIONS

Sunday, December 18, 2016:

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

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

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

Enjoy a quiet evening. Monday morning Mercury turns retrograde.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:56 AM EST until she entered her go at 12:52 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

__________________________________________________________
* 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.

Mourning Angel in Firenze, photo by Mark Voorendt via Wiki CommonsA TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN

”Dance Me To The End Of Love”

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

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

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

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

TAURUS FULL MOON: INDULGE YOUR SENSES

Monday, November 14, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:52 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 8:23 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

TAP INTO CREATIVE THINKING

Tuesday, November 15, 2016:

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

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

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

Wednesday, November 16, 2016:

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

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

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:57 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 7:57 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

ATTENTION ON LOVE

Thursday, November 17, 2016:

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

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

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

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

 

INSPIRED WHIMSY

Friday, November 18, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:02 PM EST until she enters Leo at 10:14 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

ELUSIVE INSPIRATION

Saturday, November 19, 2016:

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

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

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

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

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

 

SPREAD HOPE

Sunday, November 20, 2016:

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

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

Instead of getting angry, nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.” ― Dalai Lama

What a wonderful quote. Finding gratitude in our hearts for those who are challenging to us may not be easy, but the benefits will resonate with your soul through lifetimes. It is like I said last week on Facebook: “Say what needs to be said and turn back to Love”. Speak truth while holding love as the baseline… no matter.

ANTICIPATION AND REVELATIONS

Monday, October 24, 2016:

Monday begins with a brilliant trine between the extroverted Leo Moon and unconventional Uranus. We start the day with unexpected excitement and anticipation. Unusual and innovative ideas hover around us, waiting for us to pay attention. Follow your curiosity, especially if it is leading in directions that make your heart beat a little faster.

At 4:46 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of intellect and perception, leaves Libra behind to enter the deep, intense waters of Scorpio. Mercury is moving quickly and will only remain in Scorpio until November 12th. This is a good time to dig deeply and investigate what has been hidden from view. Your focus may be intense, very private, and highly perceptive.

Pay attention to unusual, and potentially dark revelations.

At 11:16 PM EDT, the Moon enters efficient, industrious Virgo after being VOC* all day.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:21 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 11:16 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

A LIGHT TOUCH

Tuesday, October 25, 2016:

Normally, the industrious Virgo Moon brings practical hard-working energy to the table.

However, on Tuesday practicality and productivity may be distracted by confusion, misplaced imagination, or even delusions.  At 9:54 PM EDT, Venus, the planet that supports our love relationships and finances, opposes Neptune, the planet that can dissolve what is real in order to develop compassion and inspiration.

You may feel love and romance in the air, but check how much substance is behind it. If you began a love relationship (or some other significant dream) in late March 2016, look at what has developed from it. Money and love can slip through your fingers at a time like this as Neptune dissolves what we hoped would develop into something solid and real. The most significant connections now will be of a spiritual nature. Allow inspiration and allow life to not make clear sense. Hold love with a light touch.

On Wednesday, when the Moon squares Saturn, your feet will land once again on the Earth and you will be ready to face reality.

 

KINDNESS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

Wednesday brings clarity after Tuesday’s confusion. You will have the ability to use the practical Virgo Moon for productivity and efficiency without distraction.

Venus, the planet that represents your dearest values of love and resources, forms a sextile aspect to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and good fortune.  Yes, Venus is still engaged with the fantasies of Neptune (from Tuesday’s transit) so you will need to keep your eyes open and awareness fully engaged.

However, opportunities presented now are significant. Do not rush into anything but do not walk away.

Is there a connection to something of beauty that began in the last week of August? Whatever is offered now will require an important step forward during the last week of November.

Bring this energy of expansive love out into the world in any way you are able. Get creative! Take simple actions to show love everywhere you go. Bring coffee to the homeless person on the street. Offer a simple smile to the lonely. Consider how many folks are alone, how many folks long to be seen and acknowledged in even the smallest way. You can make a big difference in the world with your attention and kindness. How many people can you show kindness to on this one day?

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:33 PM EDT until she enters Libra on Thursday morning at 9:51 AM EDT.

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

 

SEEK TRUE ACCEPTANCE

Thursday, October 27, 2016:

The sensitive Moon enters social Libra at 9:51 AM EDT on Thursday morning. The Moon in diplomatic Libra encourages us to engage in cooperation, to create harmonious social situations, and to engage in acts of love and beauty. It may not be easy to make clear decisions, as you are likely to see both sides of each situation you encounter.

Given the choice, seek out and create charm, grace, and beauty.

At 12:16 PM EDT, when communicative Mercury conjoins the mysterious Scorpio Sun, you may need to set aside some of that charm in order to be clear and honest in your communications. Do not be too attached to your own opinions; listen to what others have to say.  Really listen; listen in order to understand the fundamental differences between you.

Share your understanding without trying to make others think as you think. Share in order to better understand each other regardless of how different your views. A commitment to true diversity is not always easy. We really do see the world through different filters. Seek true acceptance.

The Moon is VOC* on Thursday morning until she enters Libra at 9:51 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

REMOVE EXPECTATIONS; SET ASSUMPTIONS ASIDE

Friday, October 28, 2016:

Friday begins with the graceful Libra Moon making direct contact with philosophical Jupiter, expanding your belief and generosity in your intimate partnerships or increasing your enthusiasm in the beauty you bring to the world.  The receptive Moon is also in sweet contact with both Venus and Saturn, offering you the opportunity to enrich and stabilize your closest loving partnerships through diplomacy, romance, or aesthetics.

When the Moon squares Pluto at 4:11 PM EDT, you may temporality lose your balance and encounter unwanted power dynamics.  Don’t engage too directly; allow issues of fear and control to pass over without feeling that you need to jump on any bandwagon.

As the day comes to a close, the square from Mars to Uranus (exact shortly after midnight Friday night – this energy will be prominent on Friday and Saturday) will dominate the evening.  Aggressive Mars square unpredictable Uranus can be angry, impatient, and dangerously assertive.

Keep a clear eye, over the weekend, on what is happening on the world stage as well as how you are managing to keep your own equilibrium solid.  Spend time in meditation; do your very best to develop a wider perspective on the world and a grander view of what is possible. What can you develop in partnerships and love if you remove expectations and set assumptions aside. Make the effort to simply discover, understand, and learn to express your own needs and desires.

STABILIZE LOVE & PERSONAL VALUES

Saturday, October 29, 2016:

Saturday we are presented with a powerful day as we continue working with the erratic energy of dynamic Mars square unconventional Uranus (this aspect was exact shortly after midnight).

The Libra Moon is VOC* for the majority of the day enabling some of the challenges that seem significant in the moment to ultimately pass without result.

At 8:44 PM EDT, pleasure seeking Venus conjunct responsible, stern Saturn may well leave you feeling lonely and unappreciated. However, think of this transit as the beginning of a cycle of stabilizing your most personal values, love, sensuality, and resources. Spend time on Saturday determining what beauty and love you want to bring into the world over the coming year. Plant a seed (as you do at a New Moon) that will have the opportunity to grow into mature love and beauty that will sustain itself over the course of time.

Where (in what house) does 14° Sagittarius fall in your chart? It is there that the seed will be best supported by rich soil and sunlight.

At 10:01 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio bringing us into sight of the New Moon on Sunday.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:10 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 10:01 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

SCORPION NEW MOON – VULNERABILITY

Sunday, October 30, 2016:

Sunday begins with a touch of magic as mental Mercury trine elusive Neptune.  Mercury is the planet of our conscious mind, Neptune the planet of dreams, illusions, devotion and idealism. At this time, you can express the more inspired, spiritual, and compassionate side of yourself. This is a wonderful day for music, poetry, or spiritual explorations.

At 1:39 PM EDT, the New Moon is exact at 7° Scorpio.

Please take time to do a simple New Moon ritual.  You will want to complete the ritual after the exact time of the New Moon and within 24 hours.  This Scorpio New Moon brings powerful energy for the development of the expression of deep emotion. Set an intention regarding your ability to share your most powerful vulnerabilities and to hold, with great honor, the vulnerabilities of your loved ones.

Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual.  Keep it simple.  Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin or create in the upcoming cycle.  What do you want to see increase over the coming month?  Have two candles available for your ritual.  Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time.  Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you want to create.  Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle.  As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together.  At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.
