Hi, Folks!
Please keep this in mind, when the Moon is VOC this week, she isn’t fooling around! Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, she remains VOC ALL DAY LONG!! Along with Mercury & Mars Retrograde, these are days to keep a low profile and not seek accomplishment. This would be a great week to be on vacation or otherwise resting!

LEAVE YOUR CREDIT CARDS AT HOME

Monday, August 6, 2018:

Get your day started early on Monday because we soon have three full days of no Moon activity at all! The Moon is VOC* all day long on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Your best bet will be to take advantage of the days when the Moon will support activity and accomplishment! Monday brings the lighthearted, friendly energy of the talkative Gemini Moon to the table, allowing easy engagement with others.

Monday evening, Venus happily leaves stuffy Virgo behind to enter agreeable Venus ruled Libra. Venus represents love and beauty and, while in Virgo, she may have been overly critical and a bit prickly. In Libra, she has an easier time relaxing into the moment and finding beauty and value in cooperation and diplomacy. You may notice yourself and others more interested in compromise, diplomacy, and romance.

With the Sun forming a challenging square to Jupiter, you may feel a pull towards overindulgence. This may be a good day to leave your credit cards at home and pay careful attention to any promises you make. Don’t give away the store.

 

 

FRUSTRATION AND EPIPHANIES

Tuesday, August 7, 2018:

The generally talkative Gemini Moon makes no aspects today suggesting some frustration as all that you want to say may fall on deaf ears.

As Uranus turns retrograde, it focuses its attention bringing further frustration and impatience to the areas of life that don’t seem to be moving forward as quickly as you would like. A sense of limits and restrictions bubble under the surface. Practice mindfulness, patience, and allow epiphanies to surface. You may be surprised by an unexpected occurrence or communication.

At 8:32 PM EDT, Venus in Libra forms a lovely trine to Mars in Aquarius. This opens communication, ideas, and the movement of energies between folks. Spend time in public to enjoy. Follow up over the coming days on any possibilities that show up now.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* from 3:55 AM EDT until she enters Cancer after midnight – ALL DAY. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

SWEETNESS REPLACES RESTRICTION

Wednesday, August 8, 2018:

Wednesday morning brings us the Moon in protective, loving Cancer. The Cancer Moon wants to create security within the context of family, biological or chosen. However, difficulties arise with an opposition between the Moon and Saturn just as you begin the day. This suggests a difficult challenge in getting your needs met. Others may simply not see you as clearly as you would like to be seen. You may feel unloved and restricted in showing love.

By bedtime, things feel better as Mercury joins the Sun, providing clarity where it has most recently been missing.

This is followed by a Grand Water Trine formed between the Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune. This soothes all the challenge of the day and offers a great time for sweet late night lovemaking or at the very least delightfully beautiful dreams.

SOBER REALITIES

Thursday, August 9, 2018:

Thursday offers a day for emotional rest as we settle down following an early morning confrontation between the Cancer Moon and powerfully disruptive Pluto.

Following a rocky start to the day, try to make an effort to manage your emotions with rest. Allow what was said or done over the breakfast table to be released; don’t hold onto negativity. Mistakes happen and we all respond in ways that are inappropriate at times. Forgive others as you hope others will do the same.
It is important to approach the end of the day with a clean slate if possible.

At 9:33 PM EDT, Venus squares Saturn. This evening and Friday will likely present challenges to your relationships with others. You may feel sobered by the realities of your situation regarding love, relationships, and finances. Perhaps, it is a good time to schedule a serious clarifying conversation with a loved one. Don’t implement the conversation now in the Dark phase of the Moon but begin to accumulate your talking points and clearly approach the situation over the coming days.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* From 7:20 AM EDT until shortly after midnight (ALL DAY) when she enters Leo. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

Friday, August 10, 2018:

It may take a bit of effort to get out from under some uncomfortable dreams in the night but moving forward, they will fade into the distance. On Friday morning, the Moon will be in lighthearted, playful Leo. However, it is the Dark phase of the Moon with the New Moon coming on Saturday, this brings a sense of waiting and endings, not so lighthearted after all.

You can expect Thursday’s square between Venus and Saturn to continue into your experience on Friday. You may find yourself dissatisfied with your partner, friends, or your paycheck. If the things that bring value and meaning to your life seem to not fit you properly at this time, examine what needs to be released in order to bring new growth in the coming months.

Do you need to have a clarifying conversation with your partner, lover, or friend? Do you need to ask for a raise? Don’t take action now but get clear on what needs to change to bring more satisfaction and love into your heart.

GENEROSITY AND OPEN HEARTED LOVE

Saturday, August 11, 2018:

Saturday brings the final eclipse of the season. This is a partial Solar Eclipse occurring at 18 degrees Leo at 5:46 AM EDT. The Solar Eclipse happens at the New Moon.

Think about this as a New Moon on steroids. Remember, that each New Moon, we plant a seed. What do you want to begin now that will develop over the coming months? Consider what house Leo is in your chart. What seed do you want to plant in that area of your life?

Don’t neglect your New Moon ritual (although wait until Sunday) do give it added weight as whatever seed you plant will be activated for a much longer period of time. The Moon (once again) is VOC ALL DAY! Rest, don’t take any actions that you want to amount to anything as they will simply not develop in the way you would wish.

This is a complex day with Mercury and Mars still retrograde, the New Moon, our last Eclipse, and the Moon VOC*. Spend time developing your understanding of how to best use the expressive nature of Leo. Express generosity and open-hearted Love.

The Leo Moon is VOC* From 5:58 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 11:59 PM EDT – All day! Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

A PRACTICAL FLOW

Sunday, August 12, 2018:

Just after midnight on Saturday, the Moon enters tidy, meticulous Virgo. This is a Sunday to settle in for practical activities. You may want to spend the day creating constructive plans for the upcoming week. Do the grocery shopping, laundry, and house cleaning.

A Grand Earth Trine is formed in the late afternoon from the Virgo Sun to Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. This is a very pragmatic day where all the preparations you do for the upcoming week will go smoothly and easily. Enjoy a flow of orderly functional work.

At the end of the day, Mars (still retrograde) backs into Capricorn, adding to the practical Earth centered vibe. Take advantage.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: December 11, 2017 through December 17, 2017

 

You can anticipate this week being easier than last week. For one thing, you have likely become a bit accustomed to Mercury’s retrograde motion. That, along with the fact that Mercury has distanced itself a bit from Saturn, brings some much needed relief for everyone.

At the very least, the more challenging issues of your life can be kept at bay as you prepare for the holiday. Don’t let stress in… Relax, enjoy family and friends.

If you are shopping for gifts, remember to shop locally or purchase gifts of art, unusual or crafty items from individual artists and collectors. Check out Etsy!

“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!”

BEAUTY AND CHARM

Monday, December 11, 2017:

Just as the day begins, the Moon enters Libra, making no major aspects to other planets throughout the day. This keeps the emotional energy feeling more purely Libran.

With the Moon in Libra, your attention is on how to create beauty in all areas of your life. You want to make relationships work smoothly, bringing diplomacy and charm to the surface of your connections with others.

When you get to work on Monday morning, you may notice that folks are on their best and most appealing behavior.

This is a great day to join together with co-workers to decorate and create beauty in your work environment. It should be easy to work together as long as someone in the group is able to make decisive decisions.

The challenge of the day may come in the form of indecisiveness, difficulty being as assertive as you may need to be, or finding yourself pulled toward simple self-indulgence.

All in all, this is a day to enjoy.

 

 

ENGAGED COMMUNICATIONS

Tuesday, December 12, 2017:

The ease of Monday’s balanced Libra Moon gives way to more activity and tension on Tuesday. The Moon makes difficult, challenging aspects to both destructive Pluto and inspirational Uranus, requiring you to re-engage with certain tensions from the past.

The adventurous Sagittarius Sun joins with talkative Mercury on Tuesday, placing the focus on your thoughts and communications. You are likely to have a great deal of interactions with others. These conversations and interactions are apt to be a mixed bag. Some may be highly engaging and exciting, even as others are quite difficult or challenging.

Don’t forget for a moment that Mercury is retrograde, make sure you hear what is actually being said rather than what you expect, fear, or desire.

In all your communication with others, make sure to take the high road, show kindness, an open heart, and acceptance.

 

 

ENGAGE WITH INTENSITY AND PASSION

Wednesday, December 13, 2017:

Hügelland im Winter by Hugo Baar via Wiki Media

Keep in mind that the Moon sets the emotional tone as it moves through the Zodiac and changes signs every 2 ½ days. Paying attention to its passage will help you learn to move with the emotional flow through the course of your life.

At 8:59 AM EST, the Moon enters the penetrating, passionate sign of Scorpio. The Scorpio Moon brings great intensity to the day. You will find yourself more motivated than usual to get to the bottom of whatever you encounter and to understand what is below the surface.

This is also a time to explore the darker, hidden aspects of yourself. Consider the mysteries of life and of any secrets that you hold. Pay attention to the importance of personal integrity. Watch your actions and make sure you are not unconsciously engaged in manipulative tactics.

Go deep. Engage with passion and empowerment alongside profound kindness and powerful understanding.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:27 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 8:59 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

EMPOWERMENT AND HEALING

Thursday, December 14, 2017:

With the Moon still in deeply intense Scorpio, you are unlikely to be interested in superficial conversations or connections with others. This is a day marked by intensified passion and desire. Emotions are heightened and connections, if they are made at all, run deep.

Some of you may prefer to spend the day in private introspection and even secretive contemplations. However you choose to spend the day, you will want to control the depth and intensity of the narrative.

This deeply private Moon enjoys pleasant conversations with dreamy Neptune, expansive Jupiter, and powerful Pluto. Your connections with others or with yourself will be deeply empowered and potentially healing. Allow depth, passion, and transformation to move you forward on your personal path.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:42 PM EST until she enters Sagittarius on Friday at 8:08 PM EST! This is a very long VOC* Moon! 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.

 

 

CONSIDER NEW DIRECTIONS

Friday, December 15, 2017:

The Moon stays in Scorpio (and is VOC* all day) until entering Sagittarius at 8:08 PM EST. Nothing you do today will have a big impact on the future… keep that in mind.

At 9:08 AM EST, Mercury retrograde joins with Venus in adventurous Sagittarius, pulling your thoughts, communications, and thinking to issues of beauty, money, and love. The intensity of the Scorpio Moon stands aside to allow your thoughts to go to new adventures and explorations of the mind. This will not be a brand new perspective but a renewed look at past ideas.

You may find yourself thinking about a different direction for your artistic pursuits, how to create more abundance in your finances, or overhauling your love life. Don’t make any permanent decisions on any of these issues with Mercury retrograde. Explore your ideas and set them aside for now. You will have time to come back to these issues and make decisions in March of 2018 when Mercury and Venus come together once more.

If you are looking for a fun night out on the town or with friends, Friday or Saturday will fit the bill. The idealistic Sagittarius Sun forms a lovely trine aspect to innovative Uranus at 6:27 AM EST on Saturday morning. This will be in effect for most of Friday and Saturday. Allow yourself to have fun while exploring new horizons, new ideas, and imagining an entirely new future.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) all day until she enters Sagittarius at 8:08 PM EST. This is a very long VOC* Moon! 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.

GAIN A NEW PERSPECTIVE

Saturday, December 16, 2017:

You can anticipate an upbeat, exciting day with both the Sun and the Moon in optimistic Sagittarius on Saturday. To top that off, Uranus forms a positive, flowing trine aspect to the Sun in the morning. This should be an upbeat and unusual day; expect the unexpected in all things.

Anticipate heading to bed on Saturday night with new thoughts and ideas rumbling through your consciousness. The depth of intensity of the past few days is past and you are feeling more positive as you look to new ways of viewing the world. You are ready to take on a new study, a new philosophy, or you simply want to experience freedom and individuation.

You will not respond well to anyone trying to control you at this time. You want to travel, explore new ideas and ways of living. Gather with others, get curious about the way people who are very unlike you, in beliefs and lifestyle, think. Ask questions, gain a new perspective.

 

 

OPEN YOUR MIND

Sunday, December 17, 2017:

Sunday is a simple continuation of the theme from Saturday. However, do keep in mind that before you wake on Monday morning, we reach the Sagittarius New Moon!

I will talk about that fully in Monday’s post. Be aware throughout the day that we are in the darkest phase of the Moon. This is a quiet time, even with the Sagittarian focus on exploration.

Allow your exploration to be internally focused. Seek out your own idealistic, philosophical wisdom. Spend time exploring and contemplating on the philosophical values and beliefs of people who are very different from yourself and the culture you grew up in. Open yourself to understanding what seemed foreign to your thinking in the past.

This is a day to break through barriers of tight, inflexible thinking. Open your mind and allow light to flood your awareness.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: June 19, 2017 through June 25, 2017

Happy Summer Solstice!

The sensitive season of Cancer is here! By the time you wake up Wednesday morning, the inquisitive, restless energy of Gemini will have been left behind as our attention turns to the domestic, nurturing sensitivity of Cancer.

On Friday, the Sun and Moon join together at 2° Cancer, for the New Moon at 10:30 PM EDT. Prepare to settle into a slower pace with a focus on loving, affectionate connections.

You may find that you and others around you are responding with moodiness and defensiveness. Use this as an excuse to express more tender understanding and love.

HEALING TENDER VULNERABILITIES

Monday, June 19, 2017:

Monday morning, you awake with plenty of ‘get-up and go’! You will want to move forward and get things done without wasting time.

The Aries Moon is highly energized, particularly in the mid-afternoon hours, when she connects with unsettling, unconventional Uranus.

However, the most significant astrological event on Monday is a square aspect being formed from the Gemini Sun to Chiron. Think back to mid-March, do you remember an experience of having an extremely tender and vulnerable part of yourself exposed in some way? That was the beginning of the cycle that now asks you to pay attention to that vulnerability. There is healing work to be done.

Look clearly and fully accept the soft spot behind the vulnerability of Chiron. Seek out those friends and loved ones who truly understand and support your deepest personal burdens. Don’t shy away from your most tender spots and be a safe person for others to explore theirs. This is an opportunity for healing.

At 5:53 PM EDT, the Moon enters Taurus, offering an evening of indulging your senses. Spend the evening in nature; enjoy good food and loving touch.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:43 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 5:53 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 any significant future impact.

 

 

ROMANCE AND INSPIRATION

Tuesday, June 20, 2017:

Tuesday’s Taurus Moon would love nothing more than a laid-back day of indulging the senses. However, that is not what the day is going to call fourth.

At 4:25 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love, forms a sextile to Neptune, the planet of elusive dreaminess. This suggests the possibility of soft, romantic connections. Don’t go all in or fall head over heels, as whenever Neptune is involved, things may be other than they seem.

Just when you think you can enjoy that softness and the Taurus Moon would love to join you there, Mercury, the planet of our thinking, gets into the fray with a sextile aspect to unconventional Uranus. This may create agitation or inspiration.

Keep your eyes open on Tuesday for unusual thoughts and ideas. Perhaps, you will meet someone or encounter a new idea that threatens to upset the conventional structure of your thinking. Go ahead and jump at the opportunity to expand the directions of your mind.

Remember, this is the last day with the Sun in versatile Gemini, enjoy the chatter and the quickly moving mind. The Summer Solstice is upon us and will bring us to a more settled place!

 

 

JUNE SOLSTICE – SUMMER IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE; WINTER IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE

The Aquaduct by Paul Cezanne via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, June 21, 2017:

June’s Solstice is exact at 12:24 AM EDT. The June solstice is the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, in the Southern Hemisphere. The date varies between June 20th and June 22nd, depending on the year and the local time zone.

As the wheel of the seasons turns, our attention follows and our thoughts turn toward family, sentiment, security, home, and the past. Here, we nurture what is closest to our hearts; our family and closest loved ones.

At 5:57 AM EDT, Mercury also enters Cancer. Don’t be surprised when your thinking aligns with your feelings and your feelings take over your thoughts. This is a good time to articulate your emotions.

At 10:14 AM EDT, Mercury catches up with the Sun, allowing powerful conversations to emerge; go ahead and express your emotions freely.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from shortly after midnight (12:26 AM EDT) until she enters Gemini at 6:44 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 any significant future impact.

 

 

OPTIMISTIC CONVERSATIONS

Thursday, June 22, 2017:

Thursday should be an active day of optimistic conversations and busy interactions. You and those you encounter are likely feeling optimistic and inquisitive.

When the Gemini Moon forms a lovely, flowing trine aspect to idealistic Jupiter at 4:05 PM EDT, your conversations will take on an expansive, philosophical tone. With lucky Jupiter in relationship-oriented Libra, these interactions will naturally drift toward cooperation, kindness, and talk of intimate relationships.

When the Moon forms a challenging square to elusive Neptune at 5:18 PM EDT, you may notice a lack of clarity or confusion clouding your understanding of the situation. As this is a quickly moving Moon transit, allow it to pass, it will not last long.

Your best bet is to open yourself to a softer way of viewing the connection, reach for compassion, and allow any stress to simply dissolve into dreamy sensitivity.

 

 

CHANGE THIS

Friday, June 23, 2017:

Friday starts off a bit cranky as the restless Gemini Moon opposes serious, restrictive Saturn at 8:30 AM EDT. Focus on dealing with practical work related issues. If possible, avoid difficult conversations or interactions with people who have authority over you. If you must engage on that level, open to the learning without resistance; a bit of humility in dealing with others may be helpful.

At 2:46 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a lovely sextile aspect to Uranus, a lighter, more exciting afternoon can be anticipated.

At 6:06 PM EDT, the Moon enters emotionally intuitive Cancer and prepares for the beginning of a new lunar cycle. The Cancer New Moon is exact at 10:30 PM EDT at 2° Cancer. Now, you will want to plant a seed of maternal, tender, family- oriented love.

Wait and perform your New Moon ritual on Saturday or Sunday.

For your Cancer New Moon ritual, set an intention regarding family, nurturing, and emotional sensitivity. This is the perfect time to start a conversation about the family you want to create, an ideal vision of your domestic life, and how you show love to others. Perhaps, you can arrange the time and space to begin to more deeply understand your needs to give and receive tenderness and caring.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds 2° Cancer, it will help you clarify where to direct your emotions and protective instincts. If you don’t have that information, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that is calling for inward, soft attention.

Please don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple, take a moment to write down what loving, domestic changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in this upcoming cycle.

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 Cancer New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of kind sensitivity, sympathy, warmth, and family connections. Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:46 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 6:06 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 any significant future impact.

PROFOUND LOVE & BEAUTY

Saturday, June 24, 2017:

Saturday brings with it the potential to truly transform LOVE as it is experienced in your life. Empowerment flows to you through personal values, your resources, and those for whom you hold profound love. This cycle of deepening and transforming love began in late November of 2016 with the start of this Venus and Pluto cycle. Consider the seed you planted for relationship and connection at that time; feel the direct experience as it has unfolded and the impact it has upon your life now.

With the Moon in protective, caring Cancer throughout the day, the love that is impacted will likely be of the familial type. Are you ready to acknowledge that the love you are creating is domestically inclined? Do you feel the need to nurture and care for another? Do you need to give yourself that type of tender care or allow yourself to receive it from others? This is not the love of passionate new lovers but the love of family and life-long connection.

If you are alone on Saturday, take this energy and create something beautiful; any expressions of beauty will be empowered!

 

 

BREATHE STEADY

Sunday, June 25, 2017:

Sleep late on Sunday morning, if possible, and as you begin the day, breathe steadily and carefully observe your reactions.

In the early morning hours, aggressive Mars formed a challenging square aspect to philosophical Jupiter. You know that you cannot expect others to have the same beliefs that you hold. Therefore, there is no need for an overblown reaction when they do not. If everyone involved can maintain respect for each other, this can be a great morning for debate and heated yet friendly discussion. Pay attention, and shift the direction or get out of the way if it gets too heated.

With the emotional Moon still in sensitive Cancer (for most of the day), these issues will likely play out in family dynamics. When the moody Cancer Moon forms a challenging square aspect to unconventional Uranus at 2:44 PM EDT, we may feel somewhat unsettled and defiant towards certain family members. Don’t play into this agitation; pay attention to your level of understanding and release expectations.

At 6:07 PM EDT, the Moon dances into playful Leo where she will uplift our mood for the next few days. Enjoy the evening with dance, play, and creativity.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:44 PM EDT until she enters Leo at 6:07 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 any significant future impact.

Do you feel the relief now that Mars is moving forward? He will take a while to get up to speed but each day he moves a bit more quickly, encouraging us to take action in whatever direction has been blocked since mid-April.

There is also relief as we move farther from the second exact square between Saturn and Neptune. They will return to the challenging conversation between them in mid-September (oh, the politics!). For now, we drift in the space between, with a sense of the challenge between them but not so firmly embroiled in it.

If you haven’t yet read the story about my personal experience with the square between Saturn and Neptune alongside Mars retrograde, find the link here!

CANCER NEW MOON – FAMILIAL LOVE

Monday, July 4, 2016:

For many of you, the week begins with a holiday. This is a lovely day for enjoyment, pleasure, and particularly family gatherings. Although if you have concerns about power dynamics within your family, you may want to wait and meet up with them later in the afternoon.

The New Moon occurs at 7:02 AM EDT at 12° Cancer. With the Moon in Cancer,  we are particularly sensitive to matters of home, hearth, and family issues. At 12:40 PM EDT, the Moon faces off in an opposition to Pluto. Make it a point of not letting your fear of being ‘out of control’ trigger you into harsh reactions.

Once you get to 3:03 PM EDT, the rest of the day is smooth sailing. The sensitive, family oriented Cancer Moon forms lovely aspects with both Jupiter and Venus offering expansion to areas of love, pleasure, and tenderness.

Perhaps, the key earlier in the day is to relinquish our grip on control. If others want to take the reins, let them. Move into the afternoon and evening with an open heart and fully ready to engage and express Love.

 

EXPRESS YOUR INNER ARTIST

Tuesday begins with Mercury, the planet of communication and perception, forming a free-flowing trine aspect to Neptune, the planet of imagination and compassion. This is a lovely day to fully express kindness, compassion, and love.

Ideas and thoughts may surface fully formed from your imagination. If you are a writer or a storyteller, be prepared for beautiful words and stories to be easily accessible.

At 12:27 PM EDT, the Moon enters playful Leo where he will brighten the next few days with colorful play. Spend the afternoon or evening expressing your inner artist through painting, performing, or simply playing like a child. Whatever you do, affirm that it be an authentic expression of your most joyful inner sense of self.

Anywhere you see others expressing their true self, do not hold back your full expression of powerful appreciation.  Give and receive love everywhere possible!

DESIRE MEETS COURAGE

Wednesday, July 6, 2016:

The lovely Leo Moon forms only one aspect today as she trines Saturn at 7:43 AM EDT. This stabilizes our emotions allowing us to fully embrace and experience the beautiful trine aspect between Venus and Mars at 4:16 PM EDT. This lovely sexy aspect can cause sparks to fly in only the best manner.

Your desire nature is powerful and there is nothing holding back your drive and courage to express that desire.  Connections formed and developed on Wednesday are powerfully supported by the conjunction between the Sun and Mercury occurring in Cancer at 11:23 PM EDT.

Go ahead, stay up late, and talk about it. Love is in the air and the conversation will be had. If you are spending the evening alone, make an effort to truly enjoy self-love or choose your communication method to express your affection to someone you love.

 

INTENSITY MAY CHANGE THE RULES

Thursday, July 7, 2016:

After such a lovely day on Wednesday, Thursday may come as a bit of a surprise. A whole series of challenging transits occur in the cosmos throughout the day.

At 7:54 AM EDT, Mercury opposes Pluto. If you find yourself challenged by powerful or disturbing thoughts, consider following the pathway they are asking you to step onto. This has the potential to lead to new perceptions or ways of viewing the world. Perhaps some information may come to light that could profoundly change our view.

At 10:24 AM EDT, with Venus square Uranus, we may be questioning all that love and affection we experienced on Wednesday.  The relationship that felt so lovely now offers a sense of discomfort and anxiety. Perhaps, you are afraid that you expressed too much vulnerability in that state of love. Don’t walk away or build walls. Remain open to things being different than you expected. Again, you have the opportunity to see a new view and you may be pleasantly surprised at what results if you can hold steady.

Finally, at 6:26 PM EDT, the Sun opposes Pluto insisting that we look at our deepest shadows, be willing to work deeply with them, and carefully consider how they must be exposed and integrated into the current conversation.

This may be a deeply challenging day. However, if you keep your heart and mind open and available, it could be a game changer. We are each responsible for how we manage the day.  You may find yourself on a new pathway leading to your own freedom.

When the Moon enters Virgo at 6:41 PM EDT, breathe deeply, settle down, and find a way to be of service to those around you. Remember, we each face these challenges together; the space between us is so much less than we think. Be of service to others will stabilize you into an evening that will reflect and honor the hard work you have done throughout the day.

You probably didn’t get much sleep on Wednesday night and with the challenges of this day please make it a point to go to sleep early on Thursday.

 

TRY HUMOR

Friday, July 8, 2016:

I hope you took my advice and got a good night’s sleep Thursday night.  Friday morning begins on a much more positive note. At 5:05 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Jupiter offering expansion and even humor to our communications.

Whatever occurred on Thursday has enabled new conversations to be had. These conversations will support the expansion of understanding and clarity. Perhaps, you have found a new way to talk about whatever caused the problems on Thursday.

Everyone is more available to actually listen with an open heart and mind. Go ahead; say what needs to be said. It is possible that there could be some hurt feelings later in the afternoon. They won’t last long as if you are able to let the issue slide off your back. All in all, there is more space for listening and understanding; if we are lucky by evening we may stumble into compassion.

PROJECT OR SERVICE

Saturday, July 9, 2016:

On Saturday, the Virgo Moon is extremely busy making lovely aspects to Pluto, Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, and Venus. This could be a day of high productivity.  However, this is not the time to work alone or to work in one singular environment. With so much activity, you want the involvement of others and possibly moving from place to place.

Consider gathering friends or family to work on a project together. House projects, gardening, or craft projects are simply ideas to get you thinking. It may be a beautiful summer day but this is not a day to being lazy or selfish.

You will end the day with far more joy if you incorporate an element of accomplishment and service to your efforts.

 

A LOVELY DAY

Sunday, July 10, 2016:

Sunday begins with the Moon in Libra and the Sun sextile Jupiter.  This offers not only diplomacy and pleasure, but also warmth, humor, and general ‘feel good’ energy.

How about heading to brunch with your closest family or friends?  Any activity that could start the day on a really positive note is the very thing to do.

If you’re reading this on the blog early in the week, make sure you make a plan for Sunday morning. If you’re reading this Sunday morning, get on the phone and call your friends right away. Don’t waste this lovely day.

When Mercury trine Mars at 10:00 PM EDT, you find yourself easily able to communicate whatever may be necessary to push forward into the coming week. Did you forget a proposal you were supposed to write for work on Monday? Don’t worry too much about it, as it should be easy to put together before bed.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: May 9, 2016 through May 15, 2016

We can anticipate a considerably lighter and easier week!

The week begins with Jupiter turning direct, bringing our renewed understanding of the universe into the open.  Perhaps, it is time to share the wisdom we have learned in the past four months.

Venus forms lovely aspects throughout the week.  Remember, that Venus is currently in Taurus; Venus is delighted to be in her home sign playing happily with others.  She forms a sextile to Neptune on Monday, offering a possibility to reignite a previous dream.  She forms a trine aspect to Jupiter on Tuesday, enlarging our capacity for love, and forms a trine aspect to Pluto on Friday bringing a powerful flow of energy to our deepest values.

These are aspects of empowerment, expansion, and bring imagination to the things in life that mean the most to us: love, resources, and deep values.

Mercury, the planet that manages our thinking and communication skills (and is currently retrograde), also forms positive and helpful aspects this week.  On Thursday, Mercury forms a trine aspect to Pluto empowering our ability to communicate about practical real world issues.  If you have projects that require concentration and focus of the mind, this would be very helpful aspect to support you.  On Friday, Mercury is conjunct Venus, bringing the power of mind to the contemplation of values.

A powerful and lovely week ahead!

INNER WORK BEGINS TO PAY OFF

Monday, May 9, 2016:

Early Monday morning, Jupiter turns direct after having been retrograde since early January of 2016.  What inner work have you done during this time that has resulted in a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the universe?  Jupiter turning direct suggests that it is time to bring that learning out into the world and test your understanding through interactions with others.  The time and attention you have given to this inner work now begins to pay off.

Venus sextile Neptune at 7:10 AM EDT offers a subtle gentleness to the day; asking us to explore the possibilities available as your consider moving forward with a beautiful dream that began around March 20th.

Don’t make decisions now.  Investigate your options.  There will be more clarity in early June.

The Moon enters Cancer at 12:23 PM EDT and moves our emotions toward home.  Head home early this evening to share a meal with family and loved ones.

At 10:12 AM EDT, the Taurus Sun conjunct retrograde Mercury focusing our attention once again on what is truly of value to us.  This is a time to review your plans with your new understanding of your deepest values in mind.

Rewriting your goals and plans is an ongoing process that you will want to begin now.

 

WARM GLOW

Tuesday, May 10, 2016:

What a lovely day we can expect on Tuesday!  There seems to be a glow around everything and we feel our hearts expand with love!  At 2:00 PM EDT, Venus forms a trine aspect with Jupiter expanding our hearts and our understanding of deep value and deep love.  The cycle between Venus and Jupiter is the cycle of expanding, growing, and understanding love!  The cycle began in October of 2015, came into its full expression in late March, and now is simply exuding powerful love.  We understand our responsibility and are aware of the choices we make daily to open our hearts and expand love.

Some tension or power struggles may sneak in during the early evening.  This is reflected by the sensitive Cancer Moon’s opposition to Pluto at 6:04 PM EDT.  Remember, Moon aspects are very short-lived.  If you can resist being pulled into the difficult issue, you won’t have to wait too long before you can simply get on with a pleasant evening.  The key is: Don’t take the bait!

 

WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE?

Wednesday, May 11, 2016:

The Moon is very quiet as she moves through the sensitive sign of Cancer on Wednesday, perhaps she is brooding with a bit of nostalgia.  It may be a good day to do a bit of internal work on your emotions, although, I think you’d be better off cooking a meal for friends or bringing food to the homeless person on the corner.

Don’t get stuck in feelings that are not supporting forward motion.

Let me tell you about a practice I began recently that has made a huge difference in my life.  I realized that I was constantly evaluating my ‘feelings’.  “How do I feel this morning?”  “How do I feel about this or that situation?”

We know that our thoughts grow out of this focus on ‘feelings’.  Turn it upside down! Change your words… Instead of asking: “How do I feel in this situation?”  Ask “Who do I want to be in this situation?”  Once you are clear on who you want to be, your feelings can follow that to appropriate action and movement forward.  So simple and it changes everything!

At 5:31 PM EDT, the Moon enters Leo and all that sensitive quiet is upended!  Find a way to express yourself.  Go to a play this evening or get outside and play soccer or tennis with friends.  Show generosity and openhearted love to everyone in your life!  Isn’t that who you want to be?

 

EMPOWERED MIND

Thursday, May 12, 2016:

With the Moon in warm-hearted, generous Leo, we are able to more easily feel love and connection with others.  With a supportive trine aspect between the Moon and Saturn at 8:30 PM EDT, we feel inspired to bring practical effort to our generosity and kindness.  Perhaps, you are motivated to volunteer at the local soup kitchen or send a check to your favorite charity.

A trine aspect between Mercury and Pluto is exact at 10:45 PM EDT which will impact much of Thursday and into Friday.  Keep your eyes open for hidden information being revealed, intense knowledge coming into focus, or a transformative idea manifesting in your mind.  Allow that knowledge, information, or idea time and space to assimilate.  It is not ready for action yet.

Whatever comes to light now, will help us understand the direction to take following the Mercury retrograde; Mercury turns direct once more on May 22nd.  For now, rest in the empowerment of the mind with more information!

 

LOVE DEEPLY

Friday, May 13, 2016:

Friday may feel like a roller coaster ride with multiple ups and downs.  We start the morning with the dramatic Leo Moon trine Uranus at 11:03 AM EDT.  Enthusiasm and excitement abounds, and the possibilities seem endless.

However, at 1:03 PM EDT, the Leo Moon squares the Sun in Taurus.  We may feel that we have trapped ourselves on a path we thought we wanted to be on only to discover doubt and obstacles block the way forward.  Consider what you started last Friday at the Taurus New Moon; use the stuck energy of doubt to push yourself to take one decisive action to push that New Moon intention forward.  The extent of the challenge is exacerbated by the retrograde energies from both Mercury and Mars.

At 3:20 PM EDT, Mercury conjuncts Venus offering us a softer perspective and turning our minds to the value of love received and love given.  Even as you let go of the challenges of the early part of the day, the end of Friday leaves us with the powerful statement of Venus trine Pluto (10:20 PM EDT).  This brings deep levels of intimacy and trust front and center.  We understand that the depth of our desire can bring anything to fruition.  Love deeply and allow love to penetrate your heart.

CHOP WOOD – CARRY WATER

Saturday, May 14, 2016:

With the Moon in service-oriented Virgo, we wake up Saturday morning to a very different kind of day.  At 10:28 AM EST, the Moon squares Mars leaving us cranky and not in the mood to deal with ourselves, much less others.  By noon, this will pass and the rest of the day should pass without that concern.

There is a Zen teaching I remember that goes something like this:

Before Enlightenment, chop wood and carry water
After Enlightenment, chop wood and carry water

Keeping this in mind will remind you to be present to all of life.  Refusing to label some parts of your life as good and others as bad will increase your daily pleasure and your joy in life!

 

EASY FLOW – ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Sunday, May 15, 2016:

Sunday brings us a day with great potential for productivity and accomplishment.  The challenge of a harsh aspect between the Moon and Saturn (5:21 AM EDT) will pass unnoticed, but just to be sure, stay in bed until after 8:32 AM EDT.

As we proceed into the day, the efficient hard working Virgo Moon forms a Grand Trine with Mercury and Venus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn.  This offers an easy flow to any projects that require attention to detail and efficiency.  Utilized properly, you could get a ton of work completed this weekend.

Keep your expectations simple by moving with an easy flow.

We are still in the waxing phase of the Moon, so put effort into building on whatever you began at the Taurus New Moon on Friday, May 6th.

Kindness and service to others will come more easily as well, providing a perfect opportunity to develop generosity.  Take a friend out to dinner and show profound generosity to the wait-staff. However, do so with humility and quiet modesty. Otherwise, it simply won’t count!

Sending love to you all.
