Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: October 23, 2017 through October 29, 2017

“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 its 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

WELCOME THE SUN TO POWERFUL SCORPIO

Monday, October 23, 2017:

After we fall asleep on Sunday night and long before we awake Monday morning, the Sun makes its annual ingress into the intensely deep waters of Scorpio. We all recognize this time of year; we feel it in our bones.

Here, in the Northern Hemisphere, the darkness comes earlier each day. The shops are full of goblins, witches, black cats, and ghouls. You will notice that gravestones are cropping up on the neighbor’s lawns. Everyone, from old to young, is encouraged to prepare for the descent into darkness and to face it head on. Scorpio’s reputation is not an easy one!

In order to come out on the other side of darkness, we must go deep, we must encounter our own shadow, and we must face the inevitability of death. When we are able to do so, we are gifted with a transformation of perspective; we become the Phoenix – the beautiful, mystical bird, rising renewed from the ashes of the life left behind.

Scorpio shows us that avoiding the issues of darkness, depth, and death does not serve us. In order for the growth and transformation suggested in Scorpio and the rising of the Phoenix, we must face and transform our darkest shadows.

The Moon is in Sagittarius throughout the day easing us into this profound shift in seasonal energies. Allow the ease even as you feel pulled toward the depth.

 

DEEPENING INTROSPECTION

Tuesday, October 24, 2017:

On Tuesday, you must begin in earnest to adjust to the deepening introspection of this Scorpio season. Both Mercury (the planet of our thoughts, ideas, and communications) and Jupiter (the planet of expansion, philosophy, and understanding) preceded the Sun into this powerful and passionate sign.

No matter how much the Sagittarius Moon may want to keep the day on the lighter side, there is no denying the intensity under the surface. Allow the idealistic, wise Sagittarius Moon to expand your understanding of the deeply hidden issues that are being revealed in your personal life, your community, and in the culture around you.

Notice those in your inner circle of friends and neighbors, pay attention to those you rarely notice, the service providers who bring your food and check out your groceries. Each person you encounter has a profound inner life. Acknowledge their humanity with sincere eye contact and kindness.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:45 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 8:13 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.

 

PLAN FOR FUTURE STABILIZATION

Wednesday, October 25, 2017:

Autumn Landscape by Harald Sohlberg via Wiki Media

With the Moon in Capricorn when you awake on Wednesday morning, you find yourself in a general atmosphere of seriousness. You are aware of your responsibilities, commitments, and the areas of your life that may hold you earthbound.

Throughout the day, the stern Capricorn Moon forms sextile aspects to the deeply intense Scorpio Sun, expansive Jupiter, and dreamy Neptune. This suggests that today is an excellent time to make long term plans that will build more structure and stability into your life. Setting goals designed to create the life you desire through hard work and prudent development is a great way to use the energies of this day.

You won’t want to waste your precious time, attention, or resources on frivolous issues. You are able to see the reality of your situation and understand the steps available that will assist you in moving in the direction of your desires. Even in the midst of this cautious, serious day, you are able to see the possibilities of setting the steps that will support the forward motion of your life. Pay attention to your own integrity and make plans for future stabilization and growth.

With the sextile between the Moon and Neptune at 7:56 PM EDT, save the evening hours for dreaming of the results of all those plans!

 

CLARITY AND EXPANSION

Thursday, October 26, 2017:

The Moon continues through authoritative, mature Capricorn on Thursday. However, her relationship with the other planets is not quite as friendly as it was on Wednesday.

At 6:50 AM EDT, the Moon joins with powerful Pluto, pushing you to begin the day with deep contemplation of powerful issues or difficult power dynamics. Remember, this is a Moon transit and will not last through the whole day but may make the early-morning challenging.

Your confidence grows as the Sun joins with wise Jupiter at 2:09 PM EDT. This begins a one year cycle of expanding awareness through idealism and understanding. This is happening in the powerful transformative sign of Scorpio, the amplification may reveal much of what has been keep hidden in the depths of our awareness and hidden in our culture. Watch for more information on issues that result from the rampant misogyny in our world and the deep wounds we carry from what is held in darkness.

Where in your own life does a light need to be brought to what has been kept in darkness? Being courageous enough to shine a light into dark corners can bring expansion and healing into all those areas that have held such darkness. However, remember that we all are victims of misogyny, understanding and kindness are always appropriate… along with clarity and truth.

 

INTEGRITY IN PARTNERSHIP

Friday, October 27, 2017:

At 8:59 AM EDT, the Moon leaves the serious nature of Capricorn behind to enter the quirky, innovative sign of Aquarius. The Aquarius Moon will be with us throughout the weekend, so as you make plans for the coming days, keep in mind that it is a weekend meant for community building. Consider the importance of adding your voice to issues of humanitarianism and freedom.

At 6:23 PM EDT, we come to the First Quarter Square moon phase. Take time to consider the seeds that you planted at the New Moon last weekend and take action to push that process forward.

At 11:20 PM EDT, loving Venus forms a challenging square aspect to transformational Pluto. This will have a profound impact on the entire weekend so plan ahead. You may encounter energies that are deeply challenging to your closest partnerships or financial concerns; often, those issues are deeply entwined.

If you are involved in a healthy relationship, this can bring your relationship to a new level of connection and depth; although there will likely be some struggle to get there. If there are unhealthy power dynamics, this could signal the beginning of the end to the partnership. Remember, this does not only impact romantic or domestic partnerships but also business relationships and close friendships. Maintain awareness of your own integrity in your interactions with others, romantic and financial.

Shortly after, at 11:24 PM EDT, Mercury forms a sextile aspect to Pluto. You will do well to utilize this opportunity to speak-up and make your needs clear. Make sure your words are laced with kindness.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:23 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:59 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.

RELATIONSHIP TRANSFORMATION

Saturday, October 28, 2017:

Late Friday night, we had two significant transits that will be strongly impacting Saturday.

Lovely Venus, the planet of all that we most dearly value, formed a challenging square aspect to transformational Pluto. This may profoundly impact your closest partnerships, love relationships, or financial concerns. Issues of love and money are often deeply entwined. In your loving connections, this may bring deep conversations and shifting dynamics that may deepen your love connection profoundly. However, if you are in a partnership that is unhealthy, cracks may appear at this time that will widen the gulf between you unless you are willing to do the hard work necessary.

You probably won’t see this shift in sibling or parent/child relationships but in romantic or domestic partnerships, friendships, or business partnerships. Maintain awareness of your own integrity in your interactions; look inward.

Mercury also forms an aspect to Pluto, in this case, a sextile, encouraging you to speak up in a way that is kind and yet, expresses your deepest needs and concerns.

The Moon continues through Aquarius on Saturday allowing you to remain calm and dispassionate, somewhat removed from the difficulty engendered by the conversation between Pluto and Venus. The Aquarius Moon helps us to be able to utilize the opportunity to say what needs to be said without getting carried away in stress or difficulty. Speak your mind with kindness and without too much attachment to the outcome.

 

ACCEPTANCE AND PROCESS

Sunday, October 29, 2017:

Sunday morning finds you in a state of acceptance as the objective Aquarius Moon forms a sextile to stable Saturn at 9:02 AM EDT. You will awake in consideration of the changes the past few days have brought to your love relationship or your connection to other deep values in your life (financial concerns or creative endeavors). Consider and accept reality as you plan the appropriate steps forward.

At 12:22 PM EDT, with the Moon sextile inspirational Uranus, you can tap into the anticipation of a new way of being. Think outside the box of conventional expectations. You can create your life and your partnerships on your own – and your partners’ – terms. Conversations on the changes that have occurred and are occurring will be valuable and continue to move your process forward.

The Moon continues through Aquarius until 7:47 PM EDT when she enters Pisces, now, you can relax into deep dreams-space as you prepare for the upcoming week.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:22 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 7:47 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.

 

 

__________________________________________________________

* 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.

 

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.

Settling Into the First Week of Virgo

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: August 24, 2015 through August 30, 2015

As we settle into the energy of Virgo, we relax into a relatively simple week.

The Moon is waxing until she reaches her full illumination at the Full Moon in Pisces on Saturday.

Work is heating up with a vengeance as I have begun business coaching and have more than a handful of new clients.

Everyone seems to have judgments about Virgo, but how could we do what we must do without this hard working energy? It is time to get back to work with a vengeance!!

As the Sun enters Virgo, we all become more concerned with our path forward!

Let Astrolore help you prepare! Make your appointment today! We will work together with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, and the reality of your life purpose.

 

 

SPEAK YOUR MIND

Monday, August 24, 2015:

The week begins with the Moon in Sagittarius encouraging you to speak your mind. This is not a day for subtly or false modesty. This is a day to speak your mind, to tell the truth.

The day may begin with surprising or unexpected news regarding love or money.

The evening may bring a communication you do not want to hear. For all of us, there are times when the truth can be more than we want to deal with.

You may need to be very adept at managing your own discomfort in this situation.

Allow yourself to hear (and deeply consider) what is being said without responding in the moment.

Keep a low profile after 5:04 PM EST with the Sagittarius Moon VOC*.

At 11:22PM EST, the Moon enters Capricorn bringing a serious edge to bedtime. Resist the temptation to begin a work project; get some sleep! You will need your energy for productivity over the next few days.

“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.” ~Brené Brown

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT AND PASSION

Tuesday, August 25, 2015:

On Tuesday, you will awaken to the Moon in Capricorn forming lovely aspects to both the Sun and Jupiter. The Capricorn Moon requires that you pay careful attention to your responsibilities and keep an eye on the reality of your situation.

Keep your responses to all things practical and without any hurry.

This will be an emotionally steadfast day, as you accomplish the practical realities that are in front of you.

Late in the evening, you may need to deeply examine an area of your heart you would probably rather avoid. If you notice your thoughts turning toward blame or other negativity toward others, please be honest and take responsibility for where you find yourself.

Tuesday is a serious day, beginning with a great deal of accomplishment and ending in potentially passionate struggles with others.

“When we can no longer change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” ~Viktor Frankl

MAKE THE EVENING COUNT

Wednesday, August 26, 2015:

The Moon is still in Capricorn throughout Wednesday. Get as much work done as possible early in the day. You may encounter some unexpected complications on the job. Keep your thoughts steady, move with slow determination and this energy will pass.

At 11:07 AM EST, Mercury sextile Saturn. Your thoughts may be focused on finding a serious, yet kind, way to release a certain responsibility. You may be in a situation where you have no choice by to disappoint someone you care about. Remember that your responsibility is to yourself first.

At 5:01 PM EST, the Sun and Jupiter begin a new cycle of expansive generosity. In order for one cycle to begin, the previous one must end. The cycle that is ending now began in July 2014. At that time, the expansion was of fiery playful expression.

The cycle we begin now offers to expand our insightful as we prepare to take more steps toward the expansion of service that we are to others.

Spend the evening in the company of those who truly support the best in you.

Remember, you are not looking for a dramatic or social party; you are looking for the pleasure of understanding and the ability to seek peace within yourself. Make this evening count.

“It is not in the pursuit of happiness that we find fulfillment, it is in the happiness of pursuit.” ~Denis Waitley

 

A COOL INTELLECT

Thursday, August 27, 2015

Long before we wake up on Thursday, there will be a VOC* Moon in Capricorn, ending when she enters Aquarius at 3:03AM EST. When we awake, the Moon is in Aquarius and Mercury is taking its the last few steps through Virgo.

At 10:44 AM EST, Mercury enters Libra. You are encouraged to look for an intellectual reflection in others. Mercury will remain in Libra until it enters Scorpio on November 2nd. Generally, Mercury spends less time in a single sign. However, Mercury turns retrograde between September 17th and October 9th. Yes, that is coming up soon.

With the Moon in Aquarius, you may notice that you do not need to take yourself so seriously. You are able to take a very different view of your life and circumstances.

Aquarius operates on a very different level from the rest of the signs.

During an Aquarius Moon, you are more able to understand those who have a very different perspective. You may feel more detached from others as your emotional nature is cool and thoughtful.

“Don’t try to change anything at all, just breathe and let go. Breathe and let be… in your mind and in your heart, give yourself permission to allow this moment to be exactly as it is, and allow yourself to be exactly as you are.” ~Jon Kabat-Zinn

 

SEEK PROGRESSIVE CHANGE

Friday, August 28, 2015:

Friday can be a day of imaginative pleasure as we build to the Pisces Full Moon on Saturday. With the Aquarius Moon making a lovely aspect to its ruling planet, Uranus, you can expect the unexpected.

If you encounter or are offered something unusual, something that you normally would back away from, don’t be surprised if this is the day that you find yourself saying YES! Go ahead and embrace an idea that is surprising and unusual. You may feel rebellious in all the areas where people think they know what to expect of you.

You may find yourself acting and behaving in ways that are very unlike your usual patterns of life. Don’t let anything surprise you. This is an ideal time to brainstorm new ideas and look for evidence of the progressive changes you’re seeking.

Open yourself to new ways of doing things and anticipate new ideas that come unexpectedly. Pay attention to those ideas.

When the Moon is in Aquarius, is it time to pay careful attention to all that is unusual and unexpected.

“Sometimes a change of perspective is all it takes to see the light.” ~Dan Brown

PISCES FULL MOON BRINGS IMAGINATION AND WONDER

Saturday, August 29, 2015:

Saturday, we awaken to the Moon in Pisces. At 1:35 PM EST, she reaches full illumination at 6° Pisces.

This Full Moon illuminates the places within your imagination that you long to explore and expand. The Full Moon brings us to the highest point of the lunar cycle, which began at the New Moon on August 14.

Whatever began at that time, you are now able to see how far you have come with that situation. This is the time to release full creative energies.

Go dancing, make love. Expand every inch of your heart.

Bring love into every interaction and every conversation. Hold back nothing. Let loose.

“Sometimes a change of perspective is all it takes to see the light.” ~Dan Brown

 

SIMPLE DREAMING

Sunday, August 30, 2015:

Sunday, we wind the week down with simplicity and a general sense of dreamy imagination. This is a day to rest from the energy that you released at the Full Moon on Saturday.

I would recommend a leisurely breakfast, a long walk in the woods, spend time on your meditation cushion, or enjoy the afternoon by a body of water.

It does not get much simpler than this. Enjoy. Offer Love.

“We dream to give ourselves hope. To stop dreaming—well, that’s like saying you can never change your fate.” ~ Amy Tan

 

__________________________________________________________
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*!

Monday, August 24, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Sagittarius) following a square to Mercury at 5:04 PM EST, until she enters Capricorn at 11:22 PM EST

Thursday, August 27, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Capricorn) following a trine to Mercury at 2:20 AM EST, until she enters Aquarius at 3:03 AM EST.

Saturday, August 29, 2015 the Moon is VOC* (in Aquarius) following a square to Saturn at 2:03 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 3:51 AM EST. Or are hot

__________________________________________________________
* 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.
