“There is no measuring with time, no year matters, and 10 years are nothing. Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force it sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”    ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

BEGIN THE PLAN

Monday, October 16, 2017:

This week begins on a much easier note than last week; thank goodness!

The Moon is in precise, efficient Virgo providing the ability for you to pay careful attention to the details, buckle down, and accomplish what needs to be done.

At 7:13 AM EDT, as you begin the day, the diplomatic Libra Sun forms a charming sextile aspect to hard-working Saturn. This is a good time to explore how you want to work with a new cycle of stabilization that will begin in late December when the Sun and Saturn conjunct at zero degrees Capricorn. Look at where zero degrees Capricorn falls in your chart; the house placement will tell you what area of life requires a major, meaningful new beginning.

Explore new ideas, get serious about this; begin to gather your thoughts about a very important, new endeavor to start in late December. As Saturn leaves Sagittarius behind to enter Capricorn, we will all begin to be engaged on more serious projects. Begin your preparation for that now.

 

 

THE MIND DEEPENS

Tuesday, October 17, 2017:

When you wake up on Tuesday morning, you may notice the quality of your mind has shifted to a very different state. While you slept, Mercury left Libra behind to enter Scorpio. While in Libra, your thinking and conversations have been focused on making things look good and maintaining, at least, the image of refinement and charm. Remember that Mercury represents the way you think, what you think about, and how you communicate and share information.

At 3:58 AM EDT, Mercury entered the still, deep, dark waters of Scorpio. While Mercury is in Scorpio (until November 5th), observe your mind as it becomes determined to search out what is hidden and goes deeply into private and introspective considerations.

Those who have undisclosed secrets can find themselves in a rough spot as those hidden issues may be revealed at this time.

At 1:34 PM EDT, the Moon enters lovely, polite Libra. Perhaps, you are not quite ready to go into those deep Scorpionic places yet or to bring them into the conversation. For the time being, you can allow your mind to go deep even as your heart remains discreet… there will be time to open to the full extent of what is revealed when the Moon enters Scorpio on Thursday night.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:27 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 1:34 PM EDT. 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.

 

 

SHARE DEEP THOUGHTS

Wednesday, October 18, 2017:

Sandor Wearing Vest by Jozsef Rippl-Ronai via Wiki Media

With Mercury now in Scorpio, you are generally more likely to keep your own counsel, you may not be quick to share what may seem too dark or vulnerable. However, on Wednesday, mental Mercury joins with expansive Jupiter in the early morning hours. You can’t help but bring those deeply intense ideas out into the open. You long to share your deepest concerns, vulnerabilities, even your fears.

By sharing these deep issues with others, you are able to understand yourself more thoroughly. Pay close attention to who you chose to share yourself with and be willing to be a sounding board for others as they unload their deep concerns as well.

When the diplomatic Libra Moon forms a challenging square aspect to deeply intense Pluto at 9:03 PM EDT, you may question the wisdom of all that you have shared. Don’t worry, trust it, and go deep.

Darkness is easy to locate as we are in the Dark of the Moon, moving to the New Moon on Thursday.

 

 

LIBRA NEW MOON – SEEKING HARMONY AND GRACE

Thursday, October 19, 2017:

Even with the Moon in peaceful Libra, you may feel anxiety or excitement as the Sun challenges the unusual with the Sun opposing Uranus early on Thursday afternoon. The cycle between the Sun and Uranus is a cycle of personal freedom, originality, and detachment from conventional ideas and patterns that holds you back. The cycle between them began in mid-April of 2017. What excitement began at that time? How far have you come in moving forward on this path?

At this point, you can see and acknowledge your progress and you are able to determine how best to bring this issue forward into your life more fully in the coming months.

At 3:13 PM EDT, we reached the New Moon at 26° Libra. At this New Moon, you will want to plant a seed that will develop into love, grace, and harmony; over the coming weeks build on this theme. Create beauty in your life; bring love to others; set selfishness aside.

At 9:41 PM EDT, the Moon enters deep, transformative Scorpio. .When you fall asleep on Thursday night, look for dreams of the Phoenix, transformed, coming from the ash.

Thursday is a powerful day. Use it well.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:13 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 9:41 PM EDT. 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.

 

 

VERBALIZE YOUR SHADOW

Friday, October 20, 2017:

As the Moon begins her trek through mysterious Scorpio, she immediately bumps into expansive Jupiter and shortly thereafter joins with Mercury, the planet of communication and thought processes. This suggests that issues of intensity and depth may require verbal expression in ways that you may not even anticipate. The results of your words may have a larger impact than you expect. This will be a great morning for writing; write down your deepest secrets, your most intense inner shadow issues; allow healing to come through words expressed.

Most of the day is relatively quiet although you can expect to have a high degree of awareness regarding the shocking depth of transformation of what so many in the world are currently processing in their own lives. Spend time in deep inner work.

Do you know the practice of tonglen? Tonglen is a practice for soothing others and cultivating love and compassion. It is a gentle process of opening the heart by embracing, rather than rejecting, the unwanted and painful aspects of experience, we can help ourselves and others to overcome fear and develop greater empathy. Instruction here.

At 8:15 PM EDT, the Moon engages in a flowing trine aspect to dreamy Neptune, allow yourself to drift into an early sleep deeply connected to dream, fantasy, and inspiration.

RELEASE THE STORY

Saturday, October 21, 2017:

You can expect Saturday to be a relatively quiet day but one of great emotional depth and intensity. Early in the morning, the Scorpio Moon forms a sextile aspect to powerful Pluto, offering the opportunity to dig deeply into very private issues of power and control. You will want to get to the bottom of whatever issues present themselves and are willing to get your own hands dirty in the process. Truth and honesty are important to you but if you experience jealousy or obsessiveness, consider that you may be embroiled in some unwarranted paranoia as well.

If you have the sense that something untoward is unfolding, allow it to happen. Release the story that you feel wrapped up in and focus on the underlying issues of power and control. Let go of your attachment to having things as you expect or want them to be.

The Scorpio Moon reminds us each month of the importance of going deep, relaxing your hold, and releasing control in order for a more positive outcome than you may imagine.

 

 

THE COURAGE OF DIPLOMACY

Sunday, October 22, 2017:

The depth and intensity of the past few days, courtesy of the intense Scorpio Moon, can be set aside as the Moon enters optimistic Sagittarius at 7:57 AM EDT. With the Moon in freedom-loving Sagittarius, your emotional attention turns to travel, big ideas, and a higher understanding of the world and your place in it.

At 2:28 PM EDT, Mars, having been in orderly Virgo since September 5th, enters romantic, charming Libra. Mars represents the manner in which we take action, the way that we push ourselves forward with courage and purpose. While Mars was in Virgo, you may have noticed that you spent a lot of your attention busily looking at the details and attempting to perfect all your projects and physical activities.

Now, as Mars finds his way into diplomatic Libra, your thoughts and actions turn toward cooperation and balanced social interactions. Mars would prefer to be in aggressive Aries where he can simply take what he wants directly and assertively; however, while he moves through Libra until December 9th, he will teach us the importance, and even the courage it takes, to negotiate and allow human relationships to determine the direction forward.

Remember what your mother told you… ‘You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar’. 🙂

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:36 AM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 7:57 AM EDT. 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.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: September 26, 2016 through October 2, 2016

Let’s begin with a quote from “Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience” and then go right into the daily

astrological weather.

“If one has failed to develop curiosity and interest in the early years, it is a good idea to acquire them now, before it is too late to improve the quality of life. To do so is fairly easy in principle, but more difficult in practice. Yet it is sure worth trying. The first step is to develop the habit of doing whatever needs to be done with concentrated attention, with skill rather than inertia. Even the most routine tasks, like washing dishes, dressing, or mowing the lawn become more rewarding if we approach them with the care it would take to make a work of art. The next step is to transfer some psychic energy each day from tasks that we don’t like doing, or from passive leisure, into something we never did before, or something we enjoy doing but don’t do often enough because it seems too much trouble. There are literally millions of potentially interesting things in the world to see, to do, to learn about. But they don’t become actually interesting until we devote attention to them.” 
― Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

FEEL GOOD

Monday, September 26, 2016:

You may be surprised at how good you feel this morning. So much has loosened up with mental Mercury now moving forward at a good clip, serious Saturn inching away from his tight contact with dreamy Neptune, and a lovely, passionate Leo Moon to play with.

The best, by far, occurrence on Monday is the conjunction between the Sun and expansive Jupiter. Where in your life are you feeling the growth of enthusiasm and optimism? This transit begins a yearlong cycle of increasing joy, expansion, and possibly romance. It is time to take a stand, go ahead and plant the seed that you sincerely want to grow into deeper connection, understanding, and love in the coming year. Contemplate partnership and step forward to meet it, the new path is clear to be stepped upon. Begin the work of developing the partnerships and love of your deepest desires.

Pluto has been retrograde since April 18, 2016 and turns direct at 15 degrees Capricorn. If you have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars) or points (Ascendant or Midheaven) between 12 and 18 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn) you are being impacted significantly this week by the transformative energy of Pluto.

Allow major change to come. Holding it at bay will only create discord. Surrender is the best plan where Pluto is concerned. A personal consultation is in order!  For many of you this is a powerful time of transition. As Pluto turns direct, what has been held back is ready to move forward. Enjoy the ride.

 

SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE

Tuesday, September 27, 2016:

When we wake up Tuesday morning, there will be a considerable shift of energy. Mars, the planet of action and courage, finally leaves Sagittarius behind to enter Capricorn. On March 5, 2016, Mars first entered Sagittarius. Normally, Mars spends several months in a particular sign and moves on. However, with his three month retrograde (much of which was in Scorpio), he is just leaving Sagittarius now. This is another clear indication that we really are leaving behind the stuck energy we have felt mired in for the past 6 months.

With Mars in Capricorn, we are ready to work to fulfill our goals with steadfast determination. Ambition leads us to serious, disciplined accomplishments. Don’t expect to reach your desires with spontaneous action. Slow and steady wins the race. This is a great stabilization that will support our growing integrity over the next six weeks. Much work can be accomplished and significant progress made in reaching your most important goals.

Enjoy the Leo Moon on Monday, she offers you the ability to release self-consciousness and truly express your most authentic self. At 5:43 PM EDT, once the Moon enters Virgo, you will be ready to get serious about utilizing the energy of Mars in Capricorn.

The next few days will be great for getting jobs done and projects started. Support the projects of others with encouragement and putting them in touch with others who may benefit from the introduction. Every time you help others, your light shines a bit brighter.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:53 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 5:43 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.

INDUSTRIOUS EFFORT

Wednesday, September 28, 2016:

Wednesday should be a great day for getting things done. Whether you are starting a new project, working with diligent patience on the details of an ongoing project, or helping others with their projects, the work will move forward on Wednesday.

Perhaps, you are involved in a major project for a huge corporation, a serious effort forward in your own business, or perhaps you are sorting laundry and cleaning out your closets or your pantry. Bring the same industrious efficiency to whatever you are working on.

Make no mistake this is a day for work, if you try to turn it into a day of play you are likely to feel frustration at the end of the day.

Yes, you may feel some confusion around 12:46 PM EDT when delusional Neptune comes calling. Take your lunch break between 12:30 – 1:30 and don’t worry about it. Come back to the job refreshed.

When somber Saturn also gets in on the story at 3:42 PM EDT… take a coffee break, or better yet, a walk outside. These transits of the Moon don’t last long. Fit them into your day and all will be fine.

Pay attention to the details, do an excellent job. Don’t get stuck in perfectionism to the point that is stops progress.

 

NATURE CALLS

Thursday, September 29, 2016:

You will want to keep your attention on whatever your efforts went into on Wednesday.  However, due to the VOC* Moon, it will be best to consider keeping to the less important details that in the longer view of the project will have less impact.

Wait! Let’s rethink this! How about leaving all that work behind and go for a walk? A solitary walk to soothe your soul at this dark time of the Moon (New Moon on Friday). Winter will be here before we know it and perhaps a walk by a lake, a river, or the ocean will bring more value into your life than any amount of work even with the Moon in Virgo!

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:06 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 3:53 AM EDT on Friday. 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.

 

LIBRA NEW MOON – EXPANSION OF LOVE

Friday, September 30, 2016:

Friday’s New Lunar Cycle (Libra New Moon) begins on an expansive, confident, and hopeful note with the Sun, Moon, and Jupiter conjunct in the graceful, charming sign of Libra.

Jupiter’s main purpose is always to expand whatever s/he touches. This new lunar cycle is about expanding beauty, value, and partnership. The seeds you plant at this time will support the growth of love, romance, and resources far beyond the current month’s cycle.

The involvement of Jupiter (newly in Libra) suggests that these seeds have tendrils that will stay with us throughout the Jupiter cycle for the next 12 years.

We are deeply grateful that the challenging pattern between sometimes, bewildering Neptune and often restrictive Saturn are now behind us. This lovely Libra New Moon encourages us to accept the opportunity and move beyond the confusion and disappointment so recently encountered, to welcome a renewed sense of our values, ideals, and our connection to the deeper understanding of a loving Universe.

Go out into the world on Friday and plant seeds of love, connection, and beauty. If you know what astrological house holds 8 degrees Libra in your chart, you will have a better idea of where to scatter those seeds.

Regardless, go ahead and create beauty while scattering seeds of love.

LOVE FLOWS

Saturday, October 1, 2016:

On Saturday, the Moon continues through charming Libra offering a pleasant day for charming social interactions. However, don’t be in a hurry to start those social situations. With the Moon squares Pluto at 9:30 AM EDT, it will help to spend a few morning hours alone in deep contemplation. But don’t stay there too long! Once you leave that solitary energy behind, simply move forward into a day that offers beauty and harmony in cooperation with others.

At 1:13 PM EDT, Venus (in Scorpio) trine Neptune (in Pisces) offers us a lovely flow of intangible beauty and love.  This flow likely stems from a beautiful dream (or fantasy) that began in March 2016 and was fully illuminated in mid-August. The benefits and reality of that dream flow easily now. Enjoy.

Enjoy the feeling of love and beauty created in imagination, fantasy, and flow. This is a lovely day for artists and lovers. Hearts are open. Love and beauty moves easily between your open heart and a world hungry for connection.  Offer this energy out into the world.

 

VULNERABILITY SUPPORTS LOVE

Sunday, October 2, 2016:

On Sunday, we awake to the Moon still in Libra but adrift without focus until she enters Scorpio at 3:43 PM EDT. In the early part of the day, we may feel our emotions are holding us back; we may wish we could stay with the innocence and simplicity of that Libra New Moon. However, it is time to move forward, with the Moon in Scorpio we must begin a committed exploration of how to best water the seed of love that was planted at the New Moon from Friday. The ‘water’ that is required now is deep, intense, and powerful. Do not shy from the more hidden, private areas of yourself. Explore how vulnerability supports the developing beauty and love that is expanding in your life.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:43 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 3:43 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.

Contemplation for the week:

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli

This could be a powerful week ahead; there is significant activity to be managed.

The week begins with the New Moon in Libra, following an opposition to Uranus.

I would anticipate the possibility of unusual beginnings. What could that mean in your situation?

This Libra New Moon brings our focus to relationship. Each New Moon offers a time of beginnings. Are you available for a surprising new relationship? Is there something exciting that you want to begin within a current relationship?

Ask for what you want; you may be surprised at what is available.

On Tuesday, you are able to speak your mind in a way that others will hear without defensiveness. Saying what you need to say may open the relationship in question to new possibilities.

On Thursday, passion, intensification, and empowerment are on display. Where do you feel the flow of empowerment in your life or situation?

On Friday and Saturday, your dreams seek your attention. Your dreams, values, and opinions are deeply energized and activated. What action is calling you?

On Sunday, you will need an easy morning for rest and recuperation.

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

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

LIBRA NEW MOON ~ PLANT SEEDS OF RELATIONSHIP GROWTH

Monday, October 12, 2015:

The week begins with emotional intensity as the Moon comes into contact with both Pluto and Uranus. You may feel a sense of intensity and struggle that brings your attention back to the most powerful issues that have driven your life forward since early 2012.

You may need to re-examine a mistake, miscalculation, or a plan that went awry over the past few years. Look clearly at that issue, admit any mistakes, see what you have learned, and contemplate the way forward.

Try to understand how that difficulty brought you to the important place you find yourself now.

At 8:06 PM EDT, the Moon conjunct the Sun at 19° Libra; this begins a New Lunar Cycle. If you perform New Moon Rituals, wait until after 8:06 PM EDT. Your efforts will be more effective and powerful following the exact conjunction.

The start of this Lunar Cycle brings the opportunity for new beginnings in intimate relationships. This could indicate a new relationship or a new path within a current relationship.

This New Moon cycle could also relate to financial issues. If you are not expending your energy toward intimate relationship, this may be a time for new beginnings in how you make or manage your resources or money.

Whatever seeds you choose to plant in the fertile soil of this new cycle have great intensity to support their future growth.

“If your forever was ending tomorrow, would this be how you’d want to have spent it? Listen, the truth is, nothing is guaranteed. So, don’t be afraid. Be alive.” ~ Sarah Dessen

 

 

THE LANGUAGE OF RELEASE

Tuesday, October 13, 2015:

Following Monday’s New Moon, Tuesday will bring calm and a pause in problematic emotions. No high expectations on Tuesday.

Occupy yourself with watering the seeds you planted at the New Moon. In general, this is a day for rest; however, it is not too late to plant seeds if you didn’t actually do it on Monday.

Early Tuesday morning, Mercury (finally moving direct) forms a sextile aspect to Saturn. This should be a good day for saying goodbye to people or projects that are no longer useful in your life. Somehow, the language of releasing comes more easily than usual.

Freedom calls you and you are able to articulate clearly and with kindness your path forward. On Tuesday, keep your eyes open for opportunities to structure and understand more about the reality of your current circumstance.

This is a day when you are able to see a new perspective that may deeply support your path forward.

At 5:39 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio leaving behind our desire to be ‘nice’ and moving us into a deeper more powerful state of emotional awareness.

“You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” ~ James Allen

BREAK A TABOO – OUT LOUD!

Wednesday, October 14, 2015:

Wednesday is an interesting day with plenty of emotional activity. The Moon is in Scorpio which offers a state of deep emotional contemplation.

Within the context of this deep emotional energy, the Moon brings aspects of ease, flow, opportunity, and possibility to the table.

This is not a day to stand still. This is a day to pay attention to what is traditionally hidden. Some great opportunities may arise out of areas you would least expect them.

Don’t shy away from conversations that may not be polite or expected. Go ahead and engage in conversations about the deeper spaces of being human. Talk about sex, death, and anything else that causes your deep personal values to painfully bump up against others values.

It makes me think of a podcasts called: ‘Sex Out Loud’! Yes, give yourself permission to talk about sex, death, and money… out loud! It is interesting that these issues, so crucial to the happiness in our lives, are kept hidden and conversations about them kept so hush-hush.

Look at our common humanity. Break a taboo, at least in your conversations!

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” ~ Leonard Cohen

 

 

GREAT EMPOWERMENT

Thursday, October 15, 2015:

Once again, those issues that we normally don’t talk about are being called to the table! The Moon, still in Scorpio, is VOC* all day. Perhaps, your contemplation from Wednesday become more internalized on Thursday.

At 11:35 PM EDT, Mars trine Pluto. This may push you to look squarely in the face of any power dynamics in your relationships. Get clear about where you wield power over others or where others have power over you.

Get very clear about how you want to manage your own power or how you want to respond to any misuse of power by others. The cycle between Mars and Pluto began in November 2014. The cycle between these two malefics brings powerful and intense energies, indeed!

Consider what began in November, demanded action in March, and came into clarity in mid-July. This has been a difficult issue for you.

Now, with the trine between these planets you are able to understand where you have been with this cycle and you are able to bring your understanding to others.

You have learned something here that someone in your life needs to hear about. Share what you have learned.

Thursday is a day of great empowerment. If you want to accomplish something, today you will get it done.

Because of the VOC* Moon, it would be best to put your energy into a project you will complete by the end of the day, something that does not have a future agenda attached to it. One bite; get it done

“Happiness is not having what you want. It is appreciating what you have.”

~ Unknown

 

 

EXPLORE FANTASY

Friday, October 16, 2015:

After Thursday’s full day of VOC* Moon, Friday brings an energy of exploration and fun with the Moon in Sagittarius. She is fully engaged with Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Neptune.

Spend time looking forward; exploring options and dreaming big.

Friday evening offers an interesting perspective on your life and situation. This would be an easy energy to misuse this evening. It would be wise to avoid the temptation of mind-altering substances including, but not limited to, alcohol.

Venus opposes Neptune brings your attention to a dream that you have been enamored of on since the beginning of February 2015.

At this point in time, that dream is as fully realized as it ever will be. It would be a good idea this weekend to touch, (or even push) , on that dream. With Neptune involved, clarity is not solid or predictable. However, the full energy is now released.

The dream, in the direction you began it in February, will not go any further than it is now. Enjoy what has been built. It will be time to embark on a new dream in early Spring 2016. You will begin to see the glimmers of that new transcendent path in early January.

Enjoy where you are now. This could be an evening of exploring fantasies, losing yourself to music, dance, sex, or mystical realms of all kinds. Allow a gentle surreal light to shine within you.

If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Understand that what is real may be well hidden by those rose colored glasses.

Don’t make any promises you are not sure you can keep. There may be an unseen space between reality and what you see. This should be a great night for fantasy play of all types.

“Be strong enough to let go and patient enough to wait for what you deserve.” ~ Unknown

A TIME TO CHANGE YOUR OPINION

Saturday, October 17, 2015:

Saturday brings another active day of exploration and internal excitement. The afternoon could bring surprises and unexpected perspectives on your situation or your own inner patterns of behavior.

Saturday evening, Mars conjunct Jupiter at 6:39 PM EDT. This starts a new cycle of bringing activity and passion to your beliefs and opinions.

You could find yourself hotly debating or defending your opinions. In the process of this hot debate or defense, you may discover your own beliefs and opinions changing direction.

Allow yourself to change your mind. Allow yourself to have new opinions; do not let your ego hold tightly to what your deeper self knows needs to be released. Bring fresh new ideas to your opinions.

“Sometimes the most valuable lessons come from people who didn’t intend to give them. ~ Unknown

 

 

MORNING REST; AFTERNOON PRODUCTIVITY

Sunday, October 18, 2015:

Sunday looks like a great date day for rest. Following a sextile to the Libra Sun while we sleep, the Moon is VOC* in Sagittarius until she enters Capricorn at 2:53 PM EDT.

Enjoy a slow leisurely start to the day.

This was an intense week, anticipate an easier week next week.

If you have any serious home projects or preparations for winter, this afternoon should be perfect. Don’t try to get started too early, rest and take care of yourself in the morning but then turn your full attention to productivity.

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

 

__________________________________________________________
This week: The VOC* Moon!

VOC* (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment. These times are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!

Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question: Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything, go ahead with it!

If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the Moon is VOC*. Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing. That is the Moon VOC*!

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

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