RUTHLESS AMBITION

Monday, February 12, 2018:

The week does not begin on a light-hearted note but you may appreciate that you are starting with a sense of personal drive and ambition. Going back to sleep is not an option as you are fully aware of how much work you have ahead of you.

Get on track right away and use the energy available for accomplishment. The Moon moves through hard-working, authoritative Capricorn throughout the day.

At 2:22 PM EST, the Moon joins Pluto, demanding that you push forward with determined empowerment. You may be a bit ruthless in your drive for success.

At 6:42 PM EST, with a sextile being formed from the Moon to expansive Jupiter, the evening offers a bit more room to relax. Look for opportunities that you have been too focused to see earlier in the day. Find a way to release the stress from so much focused ambition, get outside, take a walk, and shift your perspective.

Sleep may not come easily on Monday night as a square aspect is formed from the Capricorn Moon to Uranus, shortly after midnight. Exercise or meditation before bedtime will help.

 

 

EXPRESS YOUR UNIQUE SELF

Tuesday, February 13, 2018:

Early Tuesday morning is uneventful until the Moon enters Aquarius at 10:12 AM EST. The serious ambition and effort of yesterday gives way to progressive ideas and an objective understanding of what is truly important. Notice how your emotions are not apt to get in the way of your unusual or progressive ideas.

Tuesday evening, Mercury forms a challenging square aspect to Jupiter, asking you to consider how you explain and express your beliefs. You may have a clear internal understanding of what you believe and yet struggle terribly to express those beliefs in a way that others understand. Make the effort to think things through before trying to put them into words.

At 9:22 PM EST, the Aquarius Sun forms a lovely sextile aspect to Uranus. This energy will last well into Wednesday and offers you an opportunity for spontaneous expression of your most unique, authentic self. Go ahead, get on stage with that improv team, you’ll do great! 😉

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:44 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 10:12 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

YOUR UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP DOES NOT FIT IN A HEART SHAPED BOX

Wednesday, February 14, 2018:

Wednesday offers excitement and the ability to move forward without uncomfortable emotions getting in your way. What do you want to do that requires that you detach yourself from what those around you think?

When the Moon is in open-minded Aquarius, allow yourself to surprise others with a true, authentic expression of your most unique self. Allow yourself to be the outsider as you consider how much freedom that position offers. Cultures and humanity move forward on this energy. Without the ability to be truly unique and move outside the boundaries of approval, we would be in the dark ages of the 1950’s still.

At 9:30 AM EST, the Moon forms a sextile aspect to Mars, offering an opportunity to take direct action on something important to your individual, unique path.

This is not the Valentine’s Day given to expressions of tender sensitivity. This Valentine’s Day will be best utilized to take an objective look at your partnerships and create a path forward that takes into full consideration the unique, possibly unconventional needs of your particular relationship.

 

 

AQUARIUS NEW MOON, SOLAR ECLIPSE

Thursday, February 15, 2018:

Thursday begins with great excitement as Mercury (the planet of your mind and thoughts) forms a sextile aspect to eccentric, unusual Uranus at 10:07 AM EST. Your mind is ready and open for unexpected and original insights. The Aquarius Moon adds to the picture as she gets into this lively conversation that is already going on. Keep your mind open to epiphanies and revolutionary ideas and experiences that could come out of the blue.

At 4:06 PM EST, we reach the Aquarius New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 27° Aquarius.

I will separately post the instructions for the New Moon Ritual which you should do over the next day or two. You do not want to do it while the Moon is still under the beams of the Sun!

At 6:19 PM EST, a sextile aspect is formed between lovely Venus and stable Saturn. Keep your eyes open and consider opportunities that may present themselves regarding the stabilization of your love relationships, your financial resources, or your creative endeavors.

At 9:42 PM EST, the Moon enters Pisces, asking that you go inward and care deeply for the more mystical side compassionate side of your nature. This is a great night for deep, profound, and refreshing sleep.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:06 PM EST until she enters Pisces at 9:42 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

~ Weekend New Moon Ritual ~

Friday will be the best day to plan and implement your New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. First, take a moment to write down what changes you wish to create or increase in the upcoming Moon cycle. For this Aquarius New Moon, set an intention regarding your humanitarian aspirations, intellectual or scientific innovations, or other independent innovations.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Aquarius, it will help you clarify where inventive idea wants to manifest. For example, if Aquarius is in your 1st house, set an intention of expressing the uniqueness of your personality; or if Aquarius is in the 4th house, set an intention to bring more unusual ideas into your home. With the Water Bearer in the 7th, the intention may be to meet unconventional people or begin a progressive new path with your partner or in the 10th, you may see the need to bring new innovations or make unpredictable changes to your business or career.

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that needs to grow through the expression of your most unconventional ideas and objective brilliance.

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 Aquarius New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of progressive, revolutionary growth.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

 

 

INSPIRATION AND COMPASSION

Friday, February 16, 2018:

On Friday morning, Mercury reaches the point of Thursday’s New Moon and Eclipse, possibly revealing something that has been previously obscured or unclear. You may be surprised by an unanticipated revelation.

With the super sensitive Pisces Moon forming a lovely sextile to Saturn, early in the day, you are able to minimize any difficulties through deep compassion and staying in touch with transcendent or mystical inspiration.

If you find yourself feeling confused or susceptible to inner suffering, move your attention outward and look at those around you with deep, unconditional love and compassion. This is a day made for meditation, empathetic responses, or creating dreamy works of inspired poetry, music, or beauty.

 

 

REST AND DREAM

Saturday, February 17, 2018:

Two major aspects dominate Saturday. First, at 6:20 AM EST, Mars, the planet of action, forms a challenging square aspect to Neptune. This creates a situation where it is deeply challenging to get anything truly accomplished. As you try to step forward in action, you will be likely stopped by a sense of weakness or confusion.

I would recommend that you simply allow this to be a day where action is elusive, allow the world to lack clarity. You could struggle against it and try to get things done or you can just allow the day to dissolve under your feet. There is no point in pushing against the grain. Let yourself rest, go to the movies, hang out on a beach, and dream.

At 11:28 PM EST, Mercury leaves Aquarius behind to join with the Moon, Venus and Neptune, already in dreamy, sensitive Pisces. Pay attention to your dreams, they will support a path of understanding. On Sunday, the Moon will leave Pisces behind even as the Sun will join this mystical gathering.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:14 PM EST until she enters Aries on Sunday morning at 7:05 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

FLOATING IN DREAM SPACE

Sunday, February 18, 2018:

On Sunday, you will awake to the Moon’s entry into Aries at 7:05 AM EST, bringing restless, emotional energy to the table. This energy is more than a bit out of place given the pile-up of planets occurring in the mutable water sign of Pisces.

At 12:17 PM EST, the Sun joins the gathering! With the ingress of the Sun into inspirational Pisces, it joins Mercury, Venus, Neptune, and Chiron all in this surreal, elusive, and intangible sign.

The Aries Moon doesn’t know how to behave in this environment and may be frustrated, particularly as she forms a square aspect to Saturn at 7:15 PM EST.

Over the coming weeks, it is important that you learn to go with the flow, to take time for meditation and quiet, to go inward, to touch the divine within yourself and see the divine in others. Experiment with different types of music and find out what sings to your soul. You will benefit from incorporating music in your everyday life.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aries at 7:05 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”

~ Dane Rudhyar “Astrological Aspects – a Process-Oriented Approach” 1980

 

* 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.

A THREAD OF POETRY

Monday, January 23, 2017:

The week begins with an optimistic Sagittarius Moon enlarging your perspective and enabling you to understand others and expand your own vision.

At 4:28 PM EST, Mercury (ruling our intellect, communications, and perception) sextile Neptune (showing up as our imagination, compassion, and sensitivity) makes it easy for you to understand the perspective of those you meet and to speak directly to that perspective. Make the effort to show compassion with your words. Speak with sensitivity. There is a thread of poetry within your mind on Monday.

When bedtime comes, your emotions may feel excited and possibly, conflicted. Sleep will not come easily if the conversations begun earlier in the day swept you into imaginative states far outside your previous boundaries.

Don’t allow delusional thinking to wash away practical reality.

 

 

STRENGTH AND CLARITY

Tuesday, January 24, 2017:

Tuesday morning may bring with it a sense of unease, discomfort, and irritability. At 5:39 AM EST, the expansive Sagittarius Moon makes contact with restrictive Saturn. Your desire to expand beyond your present constraints feels thwarted.

At 12:34 PM EST, the Moon squares argumentative Mars; you can almost feel the collective growl of frustration and anger.

When the Moon enters Capricorn at 5:44 PM EST, you are able to settle down and focus on reality and your responsibilities as you move forward.

All in all, this is not a comfortable day. If you are able to find the ability to stay engaged without anger or resentment, this day offers an opportunity to release the past and move forward from a place of strength and clarity.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:34 PM EST until she interested half of corn at 5:44 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.

 

 

BRING PRACTICAL IDEAS TO THE TABLE

Wednesday, January 25, 2017:

Wednesday provides an interesting and workable day.  Before you wake up, Venus forms a conjunction with Chiron (the wounded healer), bringing beauty to the sore places within your soul. Beauty and grace sooth the deepest wounds. Remember, vulnerability holds great strength and moves us beyond understanding.

At 2:07 PM EST, the practical Capricorn Moon forms a sextile (showing up as an opportunity) to mystical Neptune encouraging us to understand that practical reality and mystical intuition support each other in ways that are not always obvious.

When the Capricorn Moon conjunct Mercury at 6:59 PM EST, the practicality of your thinking helps you to turn your ambition to your highest understanding of what is good and right in the world. Find areas where you can help others with your most practical ideas.

A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT

Thursday, January 26, 2017:

The disciplined Capricorn Moon encounters a series of challenging aspects on Thursday that will likely leave you feeling unsteady, anxious, and will have difficulty understanding your path forward.

Your best bet is to focus on your own ambitions, responsibilities, and necessary accomplishments. Follow your personal guidelines of integrity and, in all things, act with stable maturity.

It would be a mistake to look for fun, enjoyable endeavors on Thursday or to try to avoid work. Ending the day with a sense of accomplishment should be your goal from the start of the day.

At 3:05 PM EST, when the Moon forms a gentle sextile to lovely Venus you can anticipate easier energies to come into focus as long as you managed the morning without burning bridges or engaging in interpersonal difficulties.

Your goals for Thursday: Do not burn any bridges and end the day with a sense of accomplishment.

 

 

AQUARIUS NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED FOR THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY

Friday, January 27, 2017:

By the time you wake up on Friday morning, the Moon is in Aquarius. Generally speaking, Aquarius allows us healthy emotional detachment and objectivity.

However, due to a challenging square aspect between Venus and Saturn, this is a day of high-pressure and deep challenges to our values and relationships. Even the most optimistic of you may be challenged to maintain a light-hearted approach to the day.

Consider what action you need to take to deepen your commitment to your own true values. Remember, this does not indicate a bad day, but a day of serious action. It may be a very quiet action taken in the depth of your own soul.

At 7:08 PM EST, the dark phase of the Moon reaches its culmination at the New Moon at 8° Aquarius.

The Aquarius New Moon brings powerful energy to plant a seed for objectivity, progress, and revolutionary humanitarian efforts.

Set an intention regarding the ability to open your mind to innovations that will bring progressive humanitarian values forward.

Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming cycle. 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 aspire 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.

Today’s New Moon at 8° Aquarius insists that you plant a seed of unconventional motion for the future and prepare yourself to grow in unconventional, humanitarian wisdom.

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

From 2:18 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 3:37 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.

DEVELOP COURAGE TO SERVE HUMANITY

Saturday, January 28, 2017:

When you wake up Saturday morning, aggressive Mars has entered impulsive Aries. Mars is powerful, forceful, and combative in Aries (the sign he rules) where he will remain until March 9th.

Pay attention to the area in your chart that holds the sign of Aries. Be aware and attempt to mitigate issues of anger and aggression that show up in this area of your life. This is an area where you can be courageous in taking action over the coming 6 weeks.

However, I must also say, watch the news.  Where do you see impulsive action, selfishness, and aggression expressed in the outer world?

The progressive Aquarius Moon is with us throughout the day making lovely aspects to unconventional Uranus and philosophical Jupiter. This will be a delightful day to gather with like-minded folks. Direct your collective assertive energy in a manner that will support the greater humanitarian community.

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

From 12:53 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 11:11 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.

 

 

POWER OF WORDS – POWERFUL THOUGHTS

Sunday, January 29, 2017:

Sleep late and enjoy a quiet morning on Sunday. The emotional Moon enters passive sensitive Pisces at 11:11 AM EST, asking that you pay attention to the development of your spirituality and compassion for self and others.

Additionally, Mercury conjunct Pluto at 3:21PM EST begins a new cycle of empowering the direction of your communications and your thinking. This is the time to begin a powerful study or profoundly deepen an existing one.

Serious power comes through your thoughts. Pay attention. Do some journal writing to contemplate the direction of your thoughts.

If you have plans to write this year, this is the day to begin the project!

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: February 8, 2016 through February 14, 2016

As I write these posts, week after week, I feel a bit like we are all on a roller coaster. One week we’re up, next week we’re down. Does it feel a bit disorienting? It does to me. And the good news is this week brings a lightness that is greatly welcome after last week’s upheaval.

AQUARIUS NEW MOON – BEAUTY HEALS

Monday, February 8, 2016:

The week begins with the Aquarius New Moon exact at 9:39 AM EST. The New Moon represents new beginnings; it is always significant to pay attention to what you want to create in your life and what new direction is calling you now.

Aquarius is the sign of the revolutionary, the humanitarian, and the eccentric. Now, is the time to take a step forward in the service of humanity. In considering what to begin at this time, make the larger human family your priority. What can you do that will not only support your own life, but will support the motion forward for all of humankind?

Venus is sextile Chiron on Monday as well. Venus speaks of value and beauty; Chiron speaks of the areas we have been wounded and our ability to heal ourselves and others. A sextile between any two planets offers an opportunity or a potential.

Beauty and kindness offer deep healing to the pain within us all. True beauty heals pain. Consider the healing power of creativity, color, and music.

A beautiful bouquet of flowers on your kitchen table makes all of life seem more workable. Never neglect bringing beauty into your home. Never underestimate how beauty can change your life.

 

A DAY FOR ARTISTS AND MYSTICS

Tuesday, February 9, 2016:

By the time we awake on Tuesday morning, the Moon is in Pisces. Offer your emotions up to your vast, sensitive, interior terrain. Tuesday evening, the Moon connects with Neptune, bringing more of that sensitive open space to mind.

This is a day for artists and mystics! We have our finger on a pulse of internal openness, our boundaries lessen, and our imagination opens.

On Monday, Venus put herself in service of our deepest sense of beauty, now, on Tuesday, this sensitive, imaginative energy directly connects with our ability to take action and reach for a deep personal healing. Today, Mars trines Chiron.

This is a powerful day to go to your most internal, silent spaces and work on the healing that is required for you to live your most authentic life. It is within your true authenticity that you can find joy and be of service to the greater good of everyone you love and everyone you encounter.

EXPAND YOUR SELF WORTH

Wednesday, February 10, 2016:

Wednesday continues with Tuesday’s energy as a day of deep imagination and sensitivity. The Pisces Moon makes many aspects throughout the day suggesting a day of increased activity.

Early on Wednesday morning, Venus forms a trine aspect to Jupiter. This cycle of expanding values, resources, and the expansion of primary love connection began in late October 2015. If you can identify what occurred in late October, you will see that these energies are flowing together now, as they reach toward culmination of a new expanded sense of personal self worth.

When Jupiter and Venus come together, we feel a deep desire for growth and expansion in our intimate relationships and in relationship to our finances. We feel our horizons broaden and we are open to new possibilities for growth. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, so, however you are feeling regarding your relationships and money will increase for better or worse, as Jupiter simply magnifies what is already present.

Take this opportunity to push your life toward an ever increasing, deepening sense of your own value and self-worth.

 

BRING COURAGE TO FEAR

Thursday, February 11, 2016:

Thursday offers a simple day of action. We are ready to put aside the sensitivity of the past few days and simply push forward with the Moon now in Aries.

While the Moon is in Aries, our instinctual reactions move us forward quickly with an edgy restlessness. This is a day to pay attention to your ability to face your fears and push through those fears with courage and direct motion forward.

If you notice yourself moving out of your comfort zone, you can be certain you are heading in the right direction. Use the spark of momentum underlying this day to push toward the one thing you are most afraid to do.

Once you have taken that step, pushed into that courage, and taken that action you will feel fabulous. You will see yourself as a courageous powerful person capable of taking risks and moving into a place that you were not capable of quite recently. Aries is powerful, strong, independent, and doesn’t take ‘No’ for an answer.

Breathe deeply and face your fear.

 

RESTLESSNESS MEETS RESISTANCE

Friday, February 12, 2016:

On Friday, the Moon is still in Aries, pushing our instinctual reactions forward. However, Thursday was less complicated, with the issue at hand being direct and clear. Now, the internal edgy restlessness encounters a great resistance. This resistance can result in uncomfortable internal interactions with self and others.
The problem is that Friday the Aries Moon gets tangled up in the struggle between Pluto and Uranus. Once again, it is important to look at the long-range transformation that has been working through your life and the world around you for several years now.

On an emotional level, we are caught between the revolutionary changes we know are urgently needed, and the fear that holds us back from embracing that necessary change and transformation.

As you and those around you struggle with this internal dilemma, it may be a good evening to be very mindful in your planning. This would be a great evening for solo activities particularly if they involve assertively using your physicality.

Use your physical body, engage your strength.

A VISION OF CREATIVITY

Saturday, February 13, 2016:

As you move into Saturday, you will notice an inner relaxation and relief. At 6:36 AM EST, the Moon leaves aggressive Aries behind to enter the stable, sensual domain of Taurus. The Moon loves being in Taurus; on an emotional level she settles into a mellow space. When the Moon is in Taurus, you may want to languish over a good meal, enjoy time in nature, and revere all the benefits of living within a human body.

At 5:42 PM EST, Mercury enters Aquarius! This is my personal favorite placement for Mercury. Mercury represents all issues related to the mind; how we think, what we think about, and how we communicate. Aquarius is the sign of genius; not necessarily an indication of the level of intelligence, but the ability of the mind to travel in unusual ways and unexpected directions.

While Mercury is in Aquarius, (until March 5, 2016), start to gather a team or community that will support you to your highest goals, ideals, and dreams. This is a time of innovation within the context of community. High levels of innovation will not occur within a vacuum! Gather creative, expansive individuals and work together to dream the highest vision of your values and creativity.

At 5:58 PM EST, Mars sextile Jupiter; this suggests an opportunity for energetic expansion. The cycle between Mars and Jupiter began in mid-October of 2015. This is a two-year cycle; a cycle of expanding assertiveness, energy, and possibly your sexuality. Whatever began in mid-October will now take a step forward through curiosity and your own willingness to take the opportunities that presents them selves.

Expect this weekend to offer an opportunity for moving physical energy, sexual or otherwise. Dance, run, ski, do yoga, play! Enjoy!

 

SEEK & CREATE COMFORT & BEAUTY

Sunday, February 14, 2016:

I love to see a weekend like this one. First, we have stability with an overlay of creative energy on Saturday and then Sunday shows up, offering simplicity and calm. What we are looking for on Sunday above all is comfort. We feel well anchored on the material plane and it is easy to tap into the senses. We find it easier to be patient, and to simply “Be Here Now” without stress.

Taurus is ruled by Venus which connects this energy to our need for beauty and constancy.

On Sunday, it will be so much easier to simply be at peace with yourself.
This is a day to savor living in a human body. Get or give a massage. Delight in providing yourself and your loved ones with comfort, beauty, and a home cooked meal. The Moon in Taurus offers the gift of awareness; pay attention to taste, sights, smells, and touch. Bring reverence to all that you encounter.

Routines comfort us; comfort is the order of the day as our awareness of all of our senses is amplified.
