UNIQUE FRIENDS – PROGRESSIVE IDEAS

Monday, March 12, 2018:

You’re likely to begin Monday morning with serious ambitions and deliberate plans for accomplishment, courtesy of the Capricorn Moon. However, you may need to prepare yourself to release any tight hold you have on those expectations.

At 11:36 AM EDT, when the Moon makes contact with Uranus, you may be surprised at how easily you lose the focus that felt so solid at the start of the day. Don’t expect that focus to return but don’t let it cause any great concern either.

At 6:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters progressive Aquarius, encouraging new perspectives and progressive thinking.

Prepare for an interesting, potentially socially engaged evening. Find something unusual to do, spend time with your most unique. unconventional friends.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:36 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 6:45 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.

 

 

ILLUMINATE HOPE

Tuesday, March 13, 2018:

Tuesday continues to bring us face to face with the anxiety or excitement of differing points of view. Keep your mind open and try to see things from different perspectives. It is important that we do what we can to understand how others view the world.

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, forms a First Quarter Square to restrictive, determined Saturn on Tuesday morning. This will hold us in its grip for several days. Venus joined with Saturn on December 25, 2017, beginning a cycle of stabilizing or restructuring love and beauty. Now, at the first square between them, it is important to consider what actions you can take to move forward with this cycle. Is this a reference to love, money, creativity, beauty in your life? How can you bring more maturity to this issue? Perhaps, you have been avoiding reality in some way. Look clearly and take practical action to grow up and love more deeply.

Another important transit today involves a lovely, flowing trine aspect from the Sun to Jupiter. The cycle between them began on October 26, 2017, shortly after Jupiter entered Scorpio. We are just now seeing the deeper, more profound gifts that will ultimately be bestowed through the cycle that began at that time (think #MeToo).

With Jupiter’s retrograde in Scorpio, dirt is still being excavated in order for deep growth while expansive understanding begins to illuminate the deeper issues of ongoing misogyny. Jupiter offers us hope.

 

 

SHARE IDEAS

Wednesday, March 14, 2018:

The Moon continues through independent, unconventional Aquarius on Wednesday. This is basically a quiet but friendly and engaging day.

The Beloved by Andrew Pavlovsky via Wiki Media

You should be able to see situations and other people from a new and unusual perspective. Take advantage of this. Go ahead and engage your mind in progressive, humanitarian thinking. Gather with others to share ideas. Aquarius gives us an opportunity to see outside of the restrictive boxes we generally find ourselves in.

You may discover that you are able to open your mind to areas of thinking that have not been available to you in the past. Go there, explore new, unusual, rebellious, and even revolutionary ideas. Share those ideas and listen to what others are sharing as well.

 

 

Have you studied astrology for years but are unclear whether you have the knowledge you need? Do you know how to use your understanding to have a meaningful conversation with a client? Are you contemplating working with clients but unsure how to move forward?  I would be honored to help you move toward your desire to help others with this powerful language of astrology. Contact me TODAY for a FREE STRATEGY SESSION.

 

 

SENSITIVITY AND EMPATHY

Thursday, March 15, 2018:

By the time you get going on Thursday, the Moon has entered passive, dreamy Pisces. Wednesday brought a relatively quiet day with a focus on unusual and unique thinking patterns, courtesy of the Aquarius Moon. Thursday brings a relatively quiet day as well but we have traded the unusual thinking for a deep sense of emotion, empathy, and compassion.

Earlier in the week, it became necessary to face reality in your financial situation and your love life. While the Moon is in Pisces, you will be less inclined to face reality, longing to engage in imagination, music, and mystical pursuits. Don’t lose track of reality but allow yourself to swim in sweet dreams a bit on Thursday.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:33 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 6:12 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.

 

 

THE DREAM HAS TEETH

Friday, March 16, 2018:

The desire to stay in dreamland will likely continue on Friday as the Moon moves through idealistic, poetic Pisces. However, with both Venus and Mercury now in Aries, the dream may have teeth and more determination behind it than you may realize. You want to reach out and grab what you long for and are less inclined to sit on the sidelines looking on wistfully.

With the Moon in Pisces (along with the Sun and Neptune), your emotions bring you to levels of deep sensitivity. Boundaries between yourself and others dissolve in clouds of empathy and compassion.

You will not, however, dissolve into a puddle of inaction as your sensitivity can easily engage anger or aggression if you see mistreatment of any kind. You will not only feel for the underdog but you will go to bat for him or her.

Powerful Aries energy will keep the dream from Pisces season alive.

PISCES NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED OF COMPASSION – THEN GO DANCING

Saturday, March 17, 2018:

Saturday begins with a Pisces New Moon at 9:12 AM EDT. Perform your New Moon ritual late on Saturday or, better yet, on Sunday.

At 12:40 PM EDT, Mars, the planet of action enters Capricorn, joining Saturn and Pluto in this serious, authoritative sign. Mars is considered to be in its exaltation in orderly, steadfast Capricorn, as the sign helps to contain and subdue the fire of Mars. This is a powerful, level-headed, and self-controlled position for the planet that rules anger, male sexuality, and war.

Even so, it may be a rough road as he meets with both Saturn and Pluto between now and when he enters Aquarius on May 15th (that is the same day that Uranus enters Taurus).

At 2:56 PM EDT, the Moon leaves any softness behind and enters Aries. The evening may feel a bit volatile… use that energy… make love or go out dancing; release any pent-up energies that may feel stressful in your body.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:12 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 2:56 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.

 

~ New Moon Ritual ~

Sunday 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 Pisces New Moon, set an intention regarding something intangible related to you imagination, compassion, spirituality, or inspiration.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Pisces, it will help you clarify where creativity or inspiration is ready to manifest. For example, if Pisces is in your 1st house, set an intention of expressing the most sensitive side of your personality. If Pisces is in your 4th house, set an intention to bring space for spiritual exploration into your home, set up an altar. With Pisces in the 7th, the intention may be to meet more mystical people or begin a spiritual path with your partner. In the 10th, you may see the need to be more sensitive to your coworkers or to bring something elusive 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 compassion, sensitivity, and empathy.

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 Pisces New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of empathy, mysticism, and poetic whimsy.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

 

 

 

THE URGENCY OF THE LIFE FORCE

Sunday, March 18, 2018:

Waking up on Sunday will feel very different from how you felt when you awoke on Saturday. Remember, that the Moon sets the emotional tone for the day as it moves through the Zodiac, spending approximately 2.5 days in each sign. The change from a Pisces Moon to an Aries Moon is fairly dramatic.

With the Moon in Aries, you will notice that your instinctual reactions speed up and you may feel edgy and restless. You have a powerful desire to take action. This is no lazy Sunday! Certainly, it is not the day to stay home resting or watching movies.

You may feel the need to follow a spark that thrusts you forward into an individual task or action. You may want to take off on your own for a bike ride or to ski down a mountainside. Engage your physical body in action. This is how you will feel the best.

There is a sense of urgency with this Moon sign, watch the temptation to be overly impulsive. You may feel invincible but please retain some amount of caution… and enjoy the feeling of being alive!

 

“For all its complexity, however, astrology remains fundamentally simple. It offers a time-honored system of symbols that sum up key aspects of human life while providing profound insights and practical guidance.” ~Anne M. Nordhaus-Bike

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 7, 2016 through March 13, 2016

We begin the week in the darkest phase of the Moon, preparing for a Pisces New Moon on Tuesday and the full solar eclipse, also on Tuesday!

When the Moon enters Pisces on Monday, she joins both the Sun and Neptune. As we approach the solar eclipse on Tuesday, we may be aware of the need to release something precious in order to achieve something deeply significant in our lives. It is true that in many instances we can have everything we desire, and yet, there are times when choices must be made. It is important to pay attention to the sometimes subtle difference between fantasy and reality. Often times, they can be exactly the opposite of what one would expect.

There is much to say about any solar eclipse. On Tuesday, I will send out an article written by my student Noelle Letteri about eclipses. Stay tuned for that communication.

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.

Make your appointment today!

Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose.  Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

SEEKING CLARITY

Monday, March 7, 2016:

The week begins in the darkest phase of the Moon. In the astronomical world, this is called the Waning Crescent Moon. Astrologically, it is referred to as the Balsamic Moon. Yes, balsamic, like the vinegar.  🙂

Until the Moon enters Pisces, her movement through Aquarius is cheered by a conjunction with Venus at 3:46 AM EST. As you start the day, take a moment to place your awareness on an understanding of the connection between the Moon and Venus. I think of these two as the representation of the two sides of the Divine Feminine. The Moon represents the mother archetype, the deep, warm, and nurturing aspect of the feminine. Venus, on the other hand, represents the sensual, passionate, and playful expression of the feminine. As they join together, we are asked to open our hearts to deep love and connection that draws on both of these powerful aspects.

At 2:08 PM EST, the Moon joins the Sun and Neptune in Pisces. As we move toward the eclipse and New Moon on Tuesday, things may not be as they appear. Neptune and the sign of Pisces can essentially shroud us in fog.

If passive aggressive behavior or anger of any kind arises, be prepared to meet that energy with kindness and compassion. If you are able to do this, the issue at hand will simply dissolve.

Keep in mind that this is an internal issue, there is no victim; face yourself clearly & show compassion.

 

PISCES NEW MOON & FULL SOLAR ECLIPSE

WELCOME CHANGE

Tuesday, March 8, 2016:

With so much happening on Tuesday, it is hard to know where to begin. At 5:56 AM EST, the Sun opposes Jupiter, asking us to look back to late August 2015. Whatever began in your life at that time, it is now releasing its full creative potential. Consider and give yourself credit for how far you have come.

Tuesday also marks a significant moment in time as we reach the full solar eclipse and the Pisces New Moon occurring at 19° Pisces (8:55 PM EST). A full solar eclipse happens as the Moon comes between our Earth and Sun.

Astrologically, eclipses are considered to bring unexpected changes that push us into much-needed action. Wherever you find 19° Pisces in your chart, it will indicate where you can expect the breaking up of old patterns and major shifting dynamics.

The New Moon is always a time of beginnings; do not underestimate the significance of what you chose to begin at this time. Focus on the area of your life that you know requires the energy of change. To some of you it may seem a bit silly but start to create a New Moon ritual. It can be very simple. Write down on paper what you wish to begin now. What do you want to see increase over the coming months? Have two candles available for your ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are today. 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, bring the two closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created.

Today’s New Moon brings many powerful energies together to support your forward aspirations. The Moon makes contact with Neptune as we bring our awareness to the dream that moves us forward. She then connects with Saturn reminding us that there is hard work involved. Then she connects with Pluto showing us the access we have to deep empowerment. Finally, she makes contact with Jupiter opening our vision to full expansion.

 

HOW TO DEAL WITH CONFLICT

Wednesday, March 9, 2016:

Composition 02 by MedBerkane via Wiki Commons

You should feel some relief on Wednesday morning as the intense energy of Tuesday begins to subside. At 2:40 PM EST, when the Moon enters fiery, assertive Aries, your relief turns into powerful renewed energy for action and accomplishment.

At 4:51 PM EST, with the Aries Moon trine Mars (in Sagittarius); you are ready to take on the world. Please carefully observe and pay close attention to your reactions, as impulsiveness and impatience may result.

If folks you encounter are exhibiting more aggression then you are comfortable with, please show compassion and understanding. This energy is necessary in order to move forward. Obviously, there is a limit to what is okay and what is not. Use your own internal compass to know when to remove yourself from a situation where you or others are a bit too heated up.

A powerful, sexual connection could be a delightful use of this passionate energy. After all, you do know how bonobos (our closest relations) deal with conflict!

 

ACCEPT WHAT IS YOURS

Thursday, March 10, 2016:

Thursday begins with a continuation of the powerful, assertive energy from Wednesday. Late afternoon offers more steadfastness and calm to that energy as Saturn plays nicely with the Moon at 4:36PM EST.

However, Thursday evening could bring you into emotional situations you may not be prepared to handle. The Aries Moon squares Pluto at 6:02 PM EST and conjunct Uranus at 8:43 PM EST.

Allow plans to change without question, allow others to disappoint you.

Find a way to look inside and accept your feelings. It is important to understand that others may disappoint us without it being a personal issue. Everything is not always about US!

This may well be a very challenging evening but with the Sun conjunct Chiron at 11:26 PM EST, we are given the opportunity to bring warm and healing light to a wound at the depth of our soul. Bask in that warmth and allow deep healing. Sleep soundly.

 

REST IN QUIET CALM

Friday, March 11, 2016:

Friday begins with our minds fully immersed in creative imagination. Mercury joins with Neptune, beginning its annual cycle of uplifting our minds to a high state of bliss or is it a state of confusion? Intellectual ruminations may call you down Alice’s rabbit hole. I suggest you simply enjoy the ride.

At 2:44 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus giving us an opportunity to move into a weekend of relaxation and calm. Don’t plan too many wild adventures over the next few days. Your body and mind really need rest.

Time slows down and you can relax into enjoyments of the senses. Get and give a massage, bake bread, plan your upcoming garden, rejuvenate yourself through silence.

This is a night for calm, quiet, deep love and touch, not the passion of Wednesday night. This connection can produce steady warmth and healing for your soul.

DEEP RESERVOIRS OF GREAT LOVE

Saturday, March 12, 2016:

As Venus leaves Aquarius behind at 5:23AM EST, she joins Neptune, Mercury, Chiron, and the Sun, all in Pisces. This is a powerful line-up of planets in the gentle, sensitive sign of Pisces. Your compassion, imagination, and awareness of suffering are expanded at this time. You may long to merge, and even ‘save’ others in a heightened spiritual manner.

With the Moon still in Taurus, this is a wonderful time for the growth of love and affection in any and all relationships. A lovely Earth Grand Trine forms Saturday evening between the Taurus Moon, Pluto, and Jupiter.

Your physical senses and your awareness of the real practical realities of your life are aligned, sensitive, positive, and deeply empowered. Anticipate tapping into deep reservoirs of great love. Breathe in love and build stores of it deep within your soul.

 

SEEK SOCIAL CONNECTION

Sunday, March 13, 2016:

Sunday begins slowly; you will not be tempted to make any changes to the course of the weekend (as long as you have kept to the program of calm and quiet) until the Moon enters Gemini at 4:04 PM EST.

With the Moon now in chatty, restless Gemini, you have probably fulfilled your need for calm and silence. Now, you will seek social interactions for the late afternoon and evening.

As much as you may need social connections, you may anticipate some stress in relationships. The Moon square Venus and opposing Mars suggests unrest and possible tension. If you spent the majority of the weekend engaged in calm quiet activities, this tension should be relatively easy to manage. Don’t engage with the struggle and it will pass quickly.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 16, 2015 through March 22, 2015

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: March 16, 2015 through March 22, 2015

This week we encounter and move beyond the powerful transit that has rocked our world over the past several years.

It seems as though we have been waiting for this week for a very long time, or at least since we became aware of the square aspect forming between Uranus and Pluto. For those of you who are students of astrology; when did you first become aware of this cycle between Uranus and Pluto?

I’m not sure when it first showed up on my radar but I remember clearly looking ahead with great trepidation as I realized where and how it was impacting my own personal horoscope.

Yes, my 14° Aries Moon (in my seventh house) has been greatly challenged and certainly transformed over this past year! The dust has not yet settled and I’m still not exactly sure where I will land.

My path gains clarity each day and I’m delighted for the new lifeblood that this transit has pushed through my life. My most intimate relationships, my relationships with my clients, and my entire way of life has transformed during this time. In the summer of 2012, there’s no way I could have imagined where my life stands today.

It has not been easy, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Depending on your own horoscope, we each respond differently to the transits of particular planets. I have always loved Uranus transits as they make me feel like a giddy teenager seeking freedom and excitement! Pluto transits are certainly more of a challenge as I find myself dealing with issues of power struggles and the necessity of shifting deeply held beliefs.

The Family by John Armstrong

The Family by John Armstrong

When confronted with intensely powerful transits, it is important to understand that we are being given an opportunity to open ourselves to our most authentic life.

Do not fight against the changing tide; ride it like a wave! Having said this a million times to clients, it was good to encounter a clear example of it in my own life.

The transit between Uranus and Pluto is now technically complete. This does not mean that the hard work is over. There is much to assimilate, much to understand, and many layers of work still before us, if we are to accomplish the ultimate opportunity this transit has given us.

For each of you for being directly impacted, remember: ride the wave, always exhibit kindness and compassion for others. Use your own challenges to understand the challenges of others. We are all human; our personal experiences are not unlike the experiences that others face; each of us lives in the same planetary weather patterns.

Share stories and compassion with others; you will be amazed at the understanding we gain through our shared common experience.

 

Monday, March 16, 2015:

It feels appropriate to have the final square between Uranus and Pluto (10:53 PM EDT) occur at this time of year. Here in New England, we are just feeling the stirring of Spring. It has been a very long and very cold winter. We are anxious for the sun and the warmth.

The intense long drawn-out powerful changes in our personal lives and culture are wearing on us. With this final First Quarter aspect between these powerful planets, we are ready to move forward; to see what is still standing when the dust settles. We are ready to face what is required of us as we assimilate the changes and become accustomed to where we now find ourselves.

Monday is the final of seven exact hits of the First Quarter square of Uranus and Pluto. This transit began in the summer of 2012. The powerful upheaval that we have encountered since that time now steps into a phase of assimilation.

Mercury squares Saturn on Monday, suggesting the importance of a facing a difficult decision or conversation.

Did you begin an important communication or a serious study in November 2014? Now, you must be bring that communication or study back to the table for further consideration. Push forward to embrace a way of thinking, or viewing the world, that is not easy for you.

At 6:14 AM EDT, the Moon enters Aquarius. We are not satisfied with the status quo. Gather with friends this evening to discuss human rights issues, new innovations, and the use of technology to solve our humanitarian issues. It is time to open your eyes to bigger issues outside your own personal life.

 

Tuesday, March 17, 2015:

Tuesday is a highly energized day made for highly individualistic and unusual thinking. Encourage people you encounter to think outside ‘the box’ and watch what can occur! Let yourself be surprised and go ahead and surprise others!

At 6:14 AM EDT, Venus leaves the aggressive sign of Aries behind to enter her home sign of Taurus. Venus represents our need for beauty and our ability to form partnerships. She is delighted to spend time in Taurus where she finds stability, sensuality, and reverence for life.

Venus teaches us of beauty, sensuality, and diplomacy. While she moves through Taurus, her method of teaching is deliberate, patient, steadfast, and reliable. Venus will remain in Taurus until April 11th. During this time, enjoy the beauty and value of the natural world, sensuality, and comfort.

The Moon is in Aquarius all day making pleasant aspects to Uranus and Mars before going VOC at 2:18 PM EDT, following a sextile to Mars. She remains VOC* until she enters Pisces on Wednesday at 6:58 AM EDT. Take advantage of the high-level of energy that is available on Tuesday.

 

Wednesday, March 18, 2015:

Early Wednesday morning while we sleep, Mercury conjunct Neptune at 8° Pisces. Be prepared to wake up early and write down your dreams; they could be quite significant or at the very least, interesting! If you don’t have anywhere to go, get yourself back to sleep once you write down those dreams.

By the time we wake up on Wednesday morning, the Moon will also be in Pisces, adding an even more mystical, watery quality to the day.

Think about the cycle between Mercury and Neptune as the ‘Cycle of our Dreams’. This is a one year cycle; consider the dream that began last March and is ending now. We have an opportunity to consciously choose the dream we wish to pursue for the coming year.

On Wednesday, you will want to determine the dream you wish to pursue. In early May, at the First Quarter square between Mercury and Neptune, it will be important for you to take a particular action to move that dream forward. In mid August, at the opposition between Mercury and Neptune, you should see the full results of this dream. In late November, at the Third Quarter square between them, it will be time to begin shifting gears and releasing part of that dream in order to move into a new cycle in March 2016.

Wednesday is certainly a day of great sensitivity, imagination, and compassion for self and others. Utilize it well; be kind, considerate, and compassionate.

 

Thursday, March 19, 2015:

Thursday follows very much in the same footsteps as Wednesday. The Moon is relatively quiet as she moves through Pisces. Don’t expect great clarity on any issues; allow soft sensitivity to rule the day.

With astrology being a symbolic language, every symbol; every planet, sign, and house have various layers of meaning. With a day of so much Pisces energy, we would do well to consider the layers of meaning involved in the symbols of Pisces and Neptune.

On the lowest energetic level, we can consider Pisces and Neptune to represent drugs, alcohol, and other addictions. Moving to a mid-level Pisces/Neptune energy, consider poetry and music. Poetry and music can be of great benefit in moving us to the higher levels of Pisces/ Neptune energy which consist of deep compassion, meditation, spirituality, and mysticism.

Be deeply conscious of where you choose to play out this energy this week.

Given that we are beginning the new dream/ new cycle between Mercury and Neptune, please consider where you want put your energy. Do you want to open that second bottle of wine or would your dream benefit more from listening to Chopin, or an extra hour of meditation?

 

Friday, March 20, 2015:

Friday brings us to The Vernal Equinox! This marks the moment (in the Northern Hemisphere) when the earth starts to tilt toward the sun, which means longer, sunnier days. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is just the opposite, as they move toward shorter days. This shift occurs at the moment when the Sun enters Aries at 6:44 PM EDT.

We also begin a new lunar cycle with Friday’s New Moon, which falls on the final degree of Pisces; adding to the overall theme of the week; “Beginning a Dream.” The lunar cycle is a one-month cycle; consider starting something that can be completed within that timeframe. What dream do you want to realize over the coming month?

The lunar cycles are well worth paying attention to. Whatever you begin at this time, be sure to make a conscious effort to move it forward on this March 26th. You should see the full results by April 4th, and on April 11th, you will begin to let go and release to prepare for the new cycle that begins on April 18th.

Overall, we can anticipate and plan for a day of powerful new beginnings.

The Moon enters Aries at 6:28 AM EDT, 16 minutes later the Sun enters Aries at 6:44 PM EDT. This will dramatically shift our energy out of the realm of dreamy Pisces and full force into the energy of determination, assertiveness, and courage that is Aries! Even here in the deep chill of New England, we know spring is on the way! Allow the excitement to build!

Saturday, March 21, 2015:

Saturday brings us to the first full weekend of Spring! What determined action can you begin now that will push you forward in preparing for these warmer months? Do you have a major project at hand that needs strong assertive energy to be begun or completed? This is the weekend to get it accomplished! You could get a major housecleaning project accomplished, rake the yard, clean out the garage or basement, get the motorcycle out of storage; prepare it for the road or prepare it to sell! Expend energy on preparation!

With both the Sun and the Moon newly in Aries, it is very important to utilize direct physical energy. If we find ourselves unable to do so for some reason, we could easily get in stuck in anger or nasty encounters with others. So, get out for a run, get a job done, use your energy in a strong, physical manner!

At 6:51 PM EDT following a conjunction to Mars, the Aries Moon will be VOC* until she enters Taurus on Sunday morning!

Don’t try to have a quiet evening at home with friends or loved ones! This would be a great night for dancing or bowling! No quiet activities for Saturday evening.

 

Sunday March 22, 2015:

On Sunday, the Moon enters Taurus at 6:39 AM EDT. This will calm our energy and bring us a more relaxing Sunday. At 4:26 PM EDT, Mercury sextile Pluto. This cycle between Mercury and Pluto began on December 25, 2014. Think about what powerful or transformative thoughts were on your mind at that time. What was the intense thought process that you were going through?

Now we are given an opportunity to consider how that thinking has brought you forward. What are the possibilities you see stemming from that time?

Consider where you are headed with what began in late December. You will be required to take serious action on this issue on April 7th. Your thoughtful consideration now will determine the action that you take in April.

Plan something fun for Sunday. If you got a lot done on Saturday, then Sunday can be a time to engage in significant conversations with the most important people in your life and enjoy the day.

Have a wonderful week;keep in touch with my posts on Facebook. Please send me a note, let me know how you’re doing. Let’s set up an appointment to talk about your chart and your personal path.

__________________________________________________________
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; times 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*!

Monday, March 16, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Capricorn) following a square to Venus at 4:02 AM EDT, until she enters Aquarius at 6:14 AM EDT.

Tuesday, March 17, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Aquarius) following a sextile to Mars at 2:18 PM EDT, until she enters Pisces at 6:58 AM EDT on Wednesday, March 18, 2015.

Friday, March 20, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Pisces) following the New Moon (Moon conjunct Sun) at 5:36 AM EDT and ending when she enters Aries at 6:28 a.m. EDT.

 

 

 

__________________________________________________________
* 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 I consider: Conjunctions, Sextiles, Squares, Trines, and Oppositions.
The Planets I am working with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Are your circumstances other than what you expected?

We can meet for an individual consultations (Burlington, Vermont), by telephone, or on SKYPE!

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!

It is my goal to empower you in the exploration of the past, present and future of your life.

Let's talk. There is so much to learn and understand.
