DEPTH AND INTROSPECTION

Monday, March 5, 2018:

At 8:23 AM EST, the Moon enters deeply personal and introspective Scorpio. You may prefer to spend the day alone contemplating deeply intense issues of a mysterious or private nature. If you must work on Monday, you may find it easy to discover what is at the root of any workplace mysteries.

This is a good day for searching out what is below the surface or, conversely, a good time to hide issues that are best kept undercover. You may know better than usual how to ask the right questions to get to the root or to evade questions asked of you. Days with a Scorpio Moon are not days of casual conversations or connections. Everything seems deeper, more profound, and with more significant meaning.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:19 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 8:23 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.

Mystical Pisces season is about to end with Mercury and Venus entering Aries on Tuesday. You can expect less emotion and more action.

 

 

SET THE DREAM ASIDE – TAKE ACTION

Tuesday, March 6, 2018:

By the time you awake on Tuesday, Mercury has entered assertive, action-oriented Aries. The dream state of the past month is broken and it is time to face the mental and intellectual activity that has been brewing below the surface. Mercury has been in Pisces since February 17th, encouraging passive and imaginative thought processes.

Now, it is time to put the words on paper or speak them aloud. If you have had things to reveal but the time has not seemed right, you are moving closer to the tipping point now. Mercury will remain in Aries until May 13th, with Mercury retrograde beginning on March 22nd.

Evening brings lovely Venus into Aries as well. The dream and the fantasy break as you know it is time to face reality. Get clear on your individual values, take the steps necessary to make your relationship and your finances work over the coming months. All that has been put on the back burner throughout the Pisces season is now ready to push forward.

The powerful, private Scorpio Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to both dreamy Neptune and the Pisces Sun throughout the day. Life has a gentle flow even as words, thoughts, and communications come more directly and easily.

 

 

SEEK NEW DIRECTIONS

Wednesday, March 7, 2018:

Both the flow and the ability to take action continue into Wednesday with a tiny touch of the dream still intact. It is not always easy to release our most lovely fantasies.

At 5:03 PM EST, the Moon enters Sagittarius, lightening your emotional nature and assisting in forward motion. Spend the evening with folks who engage your thinking and your spirit in looking forward to new directions.

Spring by John Reinhard Weguelin via Wiki Media

Consider new perspectives and new directions. What do you want to learn? Where do you want to travel? Who do you want to understand that you currently don’t? Ask questions, get curious, and don’t get stuck in your own already stale thinking. Look at where your life is stuck and move the dial in a new direction.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:55 AM EST until she enters Sagittarius at 5:03 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

RE-EXAMINE WHAT HAS BEEN EXCAVATED SINCE OCTOBER

Thursday, March 8, 2018:

Late on Wednesday night, the Sagittarius Moon forms an easy trine to Mercury, helping Thursday morning to begin with a simple sense of intellectual growth and stimulation. Your mood is likely to be social, friendly, and upbeat. Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign, suggesting physical vitality and ease of adaptability.

Study and curiosity come easily. You will want to socialize with acquaintances who have a variety of perspectives. You will be bored with the same old stories, preferring to find new directions and see the world through the eyes of others.

Sagittarius encourages us to learn through travel and the experience of other cultures.

At the end of the day, (11:45 PM EST), Jupiter stations retrograde at 23° Scorpio. Consider what has been being excavated, explored, and expanded in your life since Jupiter entered Scorpio in early October. Watch how individuals and the culture continue to work through the issues of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Examine where you’ve/we’ve been and how best to proceed when Jupiter moves forward on July 10th.

 

 

CREATE SPACE FOR AN EXCITING EVENING

Friday, March 9, 2018:

At 6:20 AM EST, we reach the 3rd Quarter Moon. This is a stressful square aspect formed between the Pisces Sun and the Moon in Sagittarius. It is time to let go of something that has been developing over the past 3 weeks.

Both Pisces and Sagittarius are mutable signs, this is not anything that you would consider high stress as mutable signs are adaptable, not making much of a fuss even if they don’t necessarily agree with each other. The letting go should be almost effortless.

The Sagittarius Moon joins with assertive Mars and forms a lovely trine with Uranus on Friday evening, offering a potentially exciting evening. This is not a night to stay home alone. Get out into the world to engage with others who will make your heart sing.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:28 PM EST until she enters Capricorn at 4:52 AM EST on Saturday morning. 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.

BUILD YOUR FUTURE

Saturday, March 10, 2018:

By the time you awake on Saturday morning, the Moon has entered mature, authoritative, and disciplined Capricorn. Throughout the day, there are stressful aspects from the Moon to Venus, Mercury, and, finally, a conjunction with Saturn at 9:05 PM EST.

You are likely to be strongly aware of a renewed need to build structure and planning around the dreams that you have recently been swimming in. You are newly aware of the limitations of time and the reality of aging. You are motivated by this pressing and sobering reality. Consider the structures that you need to build to create the future you desire.

As the day progresses, Sunday morning’s aspects come clearly to the table. It is a mixed bag indeed but first, you will face a challenging square from Mercury to Saturn (2:00 AM EST, Sunday morning). You may feel that it is hard to make yourself understood and the seriousness of your mind and thinking may feel heavy and even depressing. Saturday evening is best used in a serious study, preparing for, planning, or building for your future.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:28 PM EST Friday night until she enters Capricorn at Saturday morning at 4:52 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.

 

 

COME OUT OF HIDING

Sunday, March 11, 2018:

Sunday continues with the cautious, authoritative Capricorn Moon and the lingering Mercury square to Saturn. Life does not feel inconsequential or light. However, there are powerful and exciting aspects being formed early in the day. Yes, continue to plan for your future even as you allow excitement and empowerment to move you.

At 7:22 AM EST, Mars forms a smooth flowing trine aspect to Uranus, pushing you into intense excitement or powerful anxiety. Which will it be? Make a plan that allows space for excitement. Consider what began in February of 2017 and see how this weekend’s excitement or anxiety stems from that. Watch and consider cultural and political changes. Expect the unexpected.

This may offer new perspectives as you move forward with confidence in your most progressive ideas and goals.

At 7:56 PM EST, the Sun, still in Pisces, forms a lovely sextile to powerful Pluto offering the opportunity to attract and hold attention with your innate sense of self. Find and build confidence as you look into corners of your personality that have long been hidden.

I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods.

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

CURIOSITY IN COMMUNICATION

Monday, November 6, 2017:

Monday presents us with relatively calm but fully engaging day. The Moon is in inquisitive, perspective Gemini. Allow yourself to maintain an open attitude toward all the folks you encounter. Ask questions, encourage an open exchange, and share your unique perspectives with others. In all of this, show a deep level of respect and curiosity.

At 9:58 PM EST, the Gemini Moon opposes stabilizing, duty-bound Saturn. Go to sleep early enough and you won’t feel the heaviness that is often a part of this serious energy.

 

 

SENSITIVITY AND DEEP CONNECTION

Tuesday, November 7, 2017:

At 5:45 AM EST, the Moon enters protective, sensitive Cancer allowing the general emotional state of the day to turn inward. Shortly thereafter, Venus, the planet of deep, personal values, enters the powerful waters of Scorpio where she joins with both Jupiter and the Sun.

Over the coming days, Venus reaches out toward Jupiter, allowing the depth of passion and love to deepen and release. On November 13th, they will join together at 7 degrees Scorpio, beginning a new cycle of expanding the intensity of deep love and connection.

At 3:48 PM EST, the sensitive Cancer Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to expansive Jupiter. Allow deep love, connection, and prosperity to flow. Spend money, create art, and give love.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:40 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 5:45 AM EST. LOL! Five whole minutes; you will probably be sleeping or brushing your teeth!

 

 

ALLOW THIS SNAG TO PASS

Wednesday, November 8, 2017:

Rouen, Rue de L’Epicerie by Camille Pissaro via Wiki Media

Wednesday morning brings a sense of belonging to your situation. Whether you spend your day at work, at home, alone, or in community there is a sense that you belong.

At 10:06 AM EST, that sense may hit a snag as someone in the environment may push an agenda or try to hold power or control over you. This is a simple Moon transit and is likely to be rather subtle and won’t last long. If you pay attention, you will, however, notice it. Perhaps, it is an internal thing where you are the one pushing the agenda or holding power over another. Go inward and check your own level of integrity.

In the very early hours of Thursday morning, the Cancer Moon also has a challenging aspect to unsettling, exciting, and sometimes defiant Uranus. Get to bed early and allow these energies to pass without distress. No early morning tweeting please! 🙂

 

 

BEGIN YOUR PLAN FOR 2018

Thursday, November 9, 2017:

Depending on how early you get up on Thursday morning, you may or may not encounter ongoing sensitivity from the past few days. At 7:30 AM EST, the Moon leaves emotional Cancer behind to enter exuberant Leo. You will be able to set aside that sensitivity and open yourself to a more generous and playful state of self-expression.

Another early morning event occurs at 7:12 AM EST, with the passionate Scorpio Sun forming a sextile aspect to subversive, transformative Pluto. The cycle between the Sun and Pluto (an annual cycle of empowerment or destruction) began on January 7, 2017.

As you prepare for the new cycle, which will begin in January of 2018, consider what you will need to release as you prepare for the next cycle. Simply stated, this as an important time to consider what needs to be released and to begin to plan for the new cycle ahead. Yes, begin to envision your personal intentions and strategies for 2018!

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:15 AM EST until she enters Leo at 7:30 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.

 

 

A NIGHT FOR SELF-EXPRESSION

Friday, November 10, 2017:

I think you can anticipate a pleasant, even fun, morning. Get to work early, engage with others; show-up as your most authentic self while holding space for others to feel safe in their full personality expression as well. Folks will probably be feeling fairly positive and upbeat as they prepare for the weekend ahead.

Late afternoon may bring a bit of a slump as we reach the Third Quarter Moon phase at 3:37 PM EST. With the Sun in intensely private Scorpio and the Moon in playful, expressive Leo, there may be a conflict in how to move forward. Allow any stress to pass by observing without reacting to difficult (internal or external) interactions. Release and move forward, this is simply a Moon transit and will pass quickly if you do not engage with it.

If you are hoping for any party type activities, Friday is your night. Go to the theater, go dancing, engage with others in a big way, and enjoy playful expressions of all sorts.

Saturday night will be best suited for quieter endeavors.

PLAN FOR MAGIC

Saturday, November 11, 2017:

Start Saturday off with simple pleasures, a low-key yoga class, brunch with friends, or a walk in the woods. Whatever you choose to do early in the day, make sure you have no agenda other than enjoyment. Other energies and ideas are rattling around in your head through the morning hours but allow them to be non-obtrusive while you simply enjoy the morning.

Saturday’s flowing trine to inspirational Uranus brings focus to the afternoon as you are provided with the ability to explore new ideas and unusual innovations. Nail these ideas down, bring them into reality as you make definitive goals on which to build your most inspiring, inventive ideas.

Once the Moon enters industrious, efficient Virgo at 11:42 AM EST, commit those goals to paper. Sign and date your goal statements, revisit your statement regularly and allow magic to occur.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:56 AM EST until she enters Virgo at 11:42 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.

 

 

PRACTICAL DREAMS

Sunday, November 12, 2017:

Sunday may bring minor challenges but they are rather sweet challenges. 🙂

The Moon is in highly practical Virgo throughout the day, encouraging you to spend time on analytical or organizational projects. Perhaps, you simply need to do laundry and clean the house.

However, at 8:24 AM EST, the orderly Virgo Moon makes an opposition to dreamy, fanciful Neptune. With this aspect in play, you may want to open a bottle of champagne while you clean the house and do the laundry! Perhaps, you can take a break from the work to watch a movie, meditate, or simply rest and dream. A dreamy but analytical organizational day!

At 7:04 PM EST, when the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to transformative Pluto, you can dive into gratitude and the depth of empowerment you are developing as you grow in self-understanding.

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

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

With Mars, Venus, and Mercury all changing signs this week, we can anticipate an unusually busy week with many unexpected shifts occurring upon unstable ground.

Drago en Orquidea Luz by Felipe Juan Artista via Wiki Commons

Very early Wednesday morning (in EST), Mars, the planet of courage, assertiveness, anger, and possibly even violence leaves steadfast Capricorn behind to enter the unpredictable realm of Aquarius. Pay attention to your actions and the actions of others. You can anticipate folks resorting to unexpected, unusual, and erratic ways of acquiring their desires. Mars will remain in Aquarius until December 19th.

Near midnight (in EST) on Friday, Venus, the planet of diplomacy, partnership, and refinement leaves the freedom of Sagittarius behind to enter authoritative, conservative Capricorn. In Capricorn, the planet of love and our resources seeks serious commitment to our personal values within these areas. In Capricorn, Venus demands hard work to acquire our desires. Venus will remain in Capricorn until December 7th.

On Saturday morning, Mercury, the planet of communication, intellect, and perception leaves the intensity of Scorpio behind to move into freedom seeking Sagittarius. Your thoughts should lighten up as you plan a way to expand your awareness of the larger world around you. Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 2nd.

MAKE THE EFFORT TO AFFECT CHANGE

Monday, November 7, 2016:

The week begins with the Scorpio Sun sextile transformative Pluto. This indicates that an opportunity is offered that will bring powerful internal change. This may be a change of heart, change of mind, change of perspective, or any combination of these.

However, the square aspect formed between the unconventional Aquarius Moon and the suspicious Scorpio Sun brings a serious challenge to any change being contemplated.

Do not shy away from the effort. If you see an opportunity offered, take it. Perhaps it is not an easy process, but the work involved will serve you well in the days and weeks to come.

Consider your most private struggles to move toward change. Make the effort to see these struggles objectively. Look at alternative viewpoints and understand the necessity for change.

This is the First Quarter Square of the lunar cycle. It is time to take the appropriate action. Do you know what that action is? What seed did you plant at the New Moon? Push it forward with an action taken on Monday.

The Moon trine expansive Jupiter and is sextile serious, hardworking Saturn which supports forward motion. Go ahead. Make the effort.

DON’T FORGET TO VOTE TOMORROW.

 

 

VOTE: THEN TURN INWARD

Tuesday, November 8, 2016:

For Tuesday’s weather report, I will avoid thinking or mentioning too much about the fact that this is the day of the US presidential election. The only thing I will say about it is: “Please Vote”. If possible, do your voting before 8:55 AM EST or after 4:46 PM EST.  Regardless of when you vote, VOTE.

The revolutionary Aquarius Moon forms a supportive sextile to sweet Venus just before the Moon goes VOC*. This allows our minds and hearts to maintain some availability and openness throughout the day.

At 4:46 PM EST, when the Moon enters elusive, susceptible Pisces we may find it difficult to understand how to move through an environment that feels vague, intangible, and confusing.

You may be tempted to spend the evening in front of the television or drinking heavily. Time on your meditation cushion will serve you, the culture, and the planet better. Go inward. Settle your own internal demons. Watch as the cards fall where they may. Know that you have done all that you can do.

Everyone you meet is feeling the stress. Offer kindness and rich compassion to yourself and all you encounter.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:55 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 4:46 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

COURAGE MEETS REVOLUTION/ INNOVATION

Foresto Marianini vaso di Fiori by Elisa Marianini via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, November 9, 2016:

In the midst of the fluid, surreal environment we find ourselves in (Moon in Pisces), courageous Mars the planet of courage, assertiveness, and even violence leaves the sign of the adult (Capricorn) behind to enter the unpredictable realm of the Revolutionary (Aquarius).

Unusual and unconventional ways of achieving your goals may come to mind and be rapidly acted upon. Channel this energy with some caution and integrity. Put your energy into humanitarian goals rather than personal ones.

Pay attention to your actions and the actions of others. You can anticipate folks resorting to unexpected, unusual, and erratic ways of acquiring their desires. Mars will remain in Aquarius until December 19th.

At 7:50 PM EST, the mystical Pisces Moon squares cautious Saturn suggesting that idealism may turn to frustration. You may experience the feeling of frustration and exhaustion. Shortly after midnight when the Pisces Moon trine the Scorpio Sun, your energy will return, bringing with it a brighter day on Thursday.

 

 

CLARITY, COURAGE, DETERMINATION

Thursday, November 10, 2016:

On Thursday, the intuitive Pisces Moon forms a trine aspect to the transformative Scorpio Sun and Mercury (also in the profoundly intense sign of Scorpio). You may breathe a sign of relief or acceptance. When the Moon squares lovely Venus at 6:15 PM EST, you may not understand the implications as you move forward into this new state of relief or acceptance.  You (and all of us) have held much anxiety over the past weeks and possibly months!

At 8:45 PM EST, as the Moon enters assertive Aries, your confusion and lack of clarity is released. You feel stronger, more determined, and ready to take on whatever challenges lay ahead. Be careful not to embody an attitude of arrogance. Allow your thinking to settle down into a kinder space as the Aries Moon approaches a sextile to Mars at bedtime (EST). Friday will bring more clarity, more courage, and more determination to move ahead. 

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:17 PM EST until she enters Aries at 8:45 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER

Friday, November 11, 2016:

You may feel inpatient with Friday’s lack of activity after the buildup of anxiety over the past weeks. You may feel more on edge than you expected you would at this point in the process. We are now three days into the outcome of the USA elections. Have we settled yet?

At 6:46 PM EST, when the Moon opposes optimistic Jupiter you may see your need to continue the development of courage and your need to bring others into your inner circle to help pave the way.

When the assertive Aries Moon squares compulsive Pluto at 10:09 PM EDT, you may have difficulty managing the intensity you find yourself engaged in. However, when the Moon trine Saturn shortly thereafter, you realize that you are able to stabilize the situation, maintain a mature handle on your circumstances, and utilize the situation for personal growth. Moving through this day is really just a matter of putting one foot in front of the other without engaging in your own self-created inner turmoil.

Just before midnight Venus, the planet of our personal values enters the cautious, mature sign of Capricorn where she will stay until December 7th. Over the coming days and weeks, we will learn the importance of patience. Delayed gratification and deep abiding patience support the true lasting value of our desires.

CANDLELIGHT AND BEAUTY

Saturday, November 12, 2016:

Saturday morning, we wake up with lovely Venus newly in mature Capricorn ready to teach us all about patience in love. There is no rushing true, lasting love. You must take your time, hold steady, and develop the integrity and bedrock of your own true values.

Mercury, the planet of intellect and thought process, has been developing deep connections and intensity since entering Scorpio on October 24th.  At 9:39 AM EST, Mercury leaves Scorpio behind to enter Sagittarius where your philosophical understanding of your place in the world is ready to grow in wisdom. Consider the centaur (half human and half horse) that is the symbol of Sagittarius. Visualize that the centaur is releasing the arrow high in the air. The perspective of Sagittarius is not the perspective of the centaur. The perspective of Sagittarius is the perspective of the arrow at its highest altitude.

Mercury will remain in Sagittarius until December 2nd. Take advantage of this time to allow your mind to grow in awareness, inclusion, and understanding. Share your understanding with others while allowing each person to draw their own conclusions and develop their own opinions. We are all so different in our view of the world. Diversity is what makes it all work. Love the differences.

At 9:23 PM EST, the Moon enters Taurus inviting us to seek sensual pleasures and beauty. Spend the evening with a lover or an art project. The night is made to create beauty, comfort, and earthly reverence. Candlelight and tasty treats are in order.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:45 AM EST until she enters Taurus at 9:23 PM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

EMBRACE BEAUTY & LOVE

Sunday, November 13, 2016:

Sunday is a simple, and possibly, sleepy day made for pleasure. There may be little reason to get out of bed other than possibly to create wonderful food to further deepen the pleasure of the day.

With much stress now left behind, you may really need this day of rest. Create a nest to luxuriate in, binge watch a TV series, or watch a few lovely movies. The other choice for the day would be to spend time in nature connecting with the reality and solidity of the natural world. Get out and soak in the dependability of the land; commune with the trees or the ocean. Allow nature to move your soul.

At 9:46 PM EST, the Moon trine Pluto offers you the opportunity to absorb the power in nature and the power of love. We are closing in on the Taurus Full Moon on Monday, a time of full illumination of the connection to stability and reverence that Taurus offers. Embrace Love.

Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: February 29, 2016 through March 6, 2016

The planetary alignment suggests a very active, busy week. We begin the week with the extra day of February. Remember, this is a leap year! Treat it as an EXTRA day and you will begin the week with a sense of abundance!

L'élégante à l'éventail by Louis German via Wiki Commons

Early in the week, watch as your values or your experience of the values of others, take an interesting turn. This could show up in terms of money or love. You may be presented with an opportunity to stabilize these areas, even as they expand with unexpected or unusual growth. Anticipate and prepare for unique opportunities that can result in powerful new developments.

The weekend ahead may bring communication challenges as your thinking moves through anger followed by a turn toward confusion. Seeking a path toward deeper spiritual understanding will help.

The plus side of the weekend could bring unexpected travel. A road trip to Montreal is not out of the question! But staying out late dancing on Saturday night may not be the best option. Better to get some sleep and enjoy museums or places of worship on Sunday (those churches are beautiful).

This is a powerful week with a lot of changing energies. Hang on for the ride, maintain solid integrity, don’t be hard on yourself or others, and allow yourself to dream.

SAY ‘YES’

Monday, February 29, 2016:

We begin the week with the Moon connecting with Mars, pushing us forward with a powerful need to take action on some deeply felt issue. At 6:56 PM EST, the Moon enters Sagittarius opening some of the tightness or confusion you may have brought with you from the weekend.

Allow yourself to open your perspective and look to your dreams for the future. At 8:07 PM EST, Venus and Saturn form a sextile. This offers us opportunities in the area of love or money.

Keep your eyes open on Monday and Tuesday for possibilities you may not have considered. If an opportunity presents itself that feels good and proper; simply open your heart and your mind and say ‘Yes’.

 

SO MANY POSSIBILITIES

Tuesday, March 1, 2016:

Starting the day on Tuesday, you may feel like you’re getting up on the wrong side of the bed. These feelings are reflecting the square between the Moon and Neptune

This is the day when navigating the path ahead may bring up many questions. We are distracted and possibly overwhelmed by the possibilities. We intuitively know that there are things we must let go of and directions that must be shifted in order to stay on our path.

The Third Quarter Square between the Sun and Moon occurs at 6:11 PM EST. In order to follow your own best intentions, you must know what to release and where to shift direction. It is important to stay grounded in this process.

Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! Narrow your focus and pay attention to what is necessary.

FOLLOW YOUR HEART

Wednesday, March 2, 2016:

Don’t underestimate the significance of the energies provided on Wednesday.
Your relationships to the most significant people in your life and your deepest held values (including money and other resources) seek exploration and new understanding.

Venus sextiles the wild energy of Uranus at 8:07 PM EST and is asking you (or at least offers the opportunity) to consider solutions and ideas outside the box of convention. With your emotions somewhat detached, you are able to see a bigger view and more possibilities. You don’t have to follow conventional norms or rules; you can follow your deepest hearts desires.

Lines of communication are open and you are open to new ways of experiencing your world. This brings an opportunity to consider alternatives to the status quo, open-minded perspectives, as well as the ability to detach from the opinions of others.

Follow your heart. Give more space to your creative and cerebral thinking.

 

PRACTICAL REALITIES

Thursday, March 3, 2016:

The shift of energy from Wednesday into Thursday may feel considerable. If you loved the energy of Wednesday, today may feel a bit repressive. If you experienced a lot of anxiety on Wednesday, this new energy may feel stable and solid, what a relief!

The Moon enters Capricorn at 5:02 AM EST insisting that you get serious about the practical realities of your life. This is a day for ambition and serious work. You may feel the need to put your personal life on the back burner as you focus on more pragmatic concerns. Enjoy a sense of accomplishment by maintaining that solid focus on all those practical realities.

Before bedtime, it will be important to release that seriousness. Allow yourself a movie, a glass of wine, or extra time on your meditation cushion. Get to sleep in time to tune-in to open, intuitive dream space; especially when the Moon sextile Neptune at 10:57 PM EST.

 

ALLOW FOR IMPERFECTIONS

Friday, March 4, 2016:

The theme of serious, practical accomplishments continues throughout Friday. As the Moon conjunct Pluto at 12:18 PM EST, you will likely be deeply focused on whatever work project you are involved in. Remember, that it may not be easy to be flexible.

At 2:58 PM EST, the Moon squares Uranus and flexibility will be key to managing this transit. If you are too profoundly focused, distractions could become a problem. Allow, develop, and seek flexibility. Allow for the gifts of imperfection and attempt to maintain a sense of humor.

When the Moon trine Jupiter at 3:30 PM EST, tensions should relax and the rest of the afternoon has the potential of being very constructive. You may be surprised at how much you can accomplish in a short period of time.

A quiet evening at home would be advisable. This is not an evening to go looking for pleasure in a social arena. If you want to make plans for socializing this weekend, Saturday evening will be the better choice.

HOLD STEADY WHILE ENERGIES SHIFT

Saturday, March 5, 2016:

This brings us to a very busy weekend ahead. On Saturday, Mercury squares Mars at 12:43 AM EST. Perhaps, you can sleep through the reflection of this argumentative aspect or experience the aggravation within the context of your dreams.

By the time you wake up Saturday morning, Mercury has left Aquarius behind to enter Pisces. You may notice your thinking takes on a very different flavor than it has since Mercury entered Aquarius on February 13th. Your thoughts may go to places of intangibility, high imagination, and deep sensitivity.

It may be difficult to follow a train of thought without getting lost in strong, watery currents. We can expect less clarity and more mystical thinking while Mercury remains in Pisces until March 21st.

At 11:06 AM EST, the Moon leaves serious Capricorn behind to enter detached, intellectual Aquarius. We are finally able to get away from so much focus on work and, on an emotional level, move to a cooler, more detached space where all kinds of possibilities may become available.

At 9:28 PM EST, Mars enters Sagittarius after having been in Scorpio since January 3rd. Mars represents our ability to take decisive action, assertiveness, and how we experience and use our sexual energy. While Mars was in Scorpio, we functioned (sexually and assertively) in deep pools of privacy and discretion as we explored our inner depths.

What have you discovered, hidden under the surface, about how your energy wants or needs to express itself? As Mars moves into Sagittarius, we are open to lighter, more exploratory arenas within which we are able to move our assertive, aggressive, and sexual energies. Explore new territory.

In April 2016, Mars will turn retrograde. This means Mars will remain in Sagittarius until late September 2016. Do you know what house Sagittarius occupies in your chart? This will be an area of significant activity between now and September. Make sure you were living your highest integrity in this area. The importance of this will be clear in the coming months.

 

REALITY AND EMPOWERMENT

Sunday, March 6, 2016:

Sunday begins on a serious note with the Sun square Saturn at 1:03 AM EST. Think back to a most serious issue in late November 2015. On November 29th, the Sun conjunct Saturn which began an annual cycle of developing maturity through integrity and hard work. What began in your life at that time? If you have the answer to that question, it will give you an idea of how to manage the square between them on Sunday.

As this is the Last Quarter Square in their cycle, signifying the end of this influence, it is important that you take an action on what began in late November. This is a serious aspect, asking you to make a decision and take action to move your life forward in a practical manner.

Slow down and consider carefully the vision you are working to create. Be clear that you are taking concrete, real-world steps to develop that dream. This is a time to look at reality and make sure you’re taking the necessary, practical steps forward toward an achievable goal.

As the day comes to a close, the Sun sextile Pluto at 11:40 PM EST which suggests that the hard work you are investing in your future opens possibilities for great empowerment moving forward. This is a delightful energy to end the week with.

Reflect and rejoice.

Contemplation for the week:

“Life is glorious, but life is also wretched. It is both. Appreciating the gloriousness inspires us, encourages us, cheers us up, gives us a bigger perspective, energizes us. We feel connected. But if that’s all that’s happening, we get arrogant and start to look down on others, and there is a sense of making ourselves a big deal and being really serious about it, wanting it to be like that forever. The gloriousness becomes tinged by craving and addiction. On the other hand, wretchedness–life’s painful aspect–softens us up considerably. Knowing pain is a very important ingredient of being there for another person. When you are feeling a lot of grief, you can look right into somebody’s eyes because you feel you haven’t got anything to lose–you’re just there. The wretchedness humbles us and softens us, but if we were only wretched, we would all just go down the tubes. We’d be so depressed, discouraged, and hopeless that we wouldn’t have enough energy to eat an apple. Gloriousness and wretchedness need each other. One inspires us, the other softens us. They go together.” ~ Pema Chodron

CREATE VALUE

Monday, November 2, 2015:

Last week, the Sun entered Scorpio and this Monday, our thinking catches up. We all understand the feeling sense of Scorpio. It is an energy that we can’t miss and we all recognize. We often associate it with stories from our childhood; I dare say most of those stories probably occurred in late October or November.

Do you remember the time your friend enticed you into the graveyard after dark? Regardless of the fear, the intensity called you forward. I’m sure you have experienced a wave of fear washing over you, even as intense emotion holds you riveted to the spot. Scorpio is the inability to look away when something too scary or horrifying is before you.

At 2:06 AM EST, Mercury leaves Libra behind to enter Scorpio. This brings our thoughts and communications into this same place of intensity and darkness. We are less interested in making things look good; we are less available for ‘small talk’. We must get to the deepest core of the topic at hand.

The Moon in Leo struggles to keep things playful but may resort to less positive points of dramatic creativity!

Monday evening, Venus and Mars come together in the last of a series of three transits since last February. (Due to Venus’ retrograde during last summer). This aspect often reflects our push toward ‘capital R’ relationships.

There are other ways these two planets join together. Remember, that Mars energizes Venus while Venus softens Mars. Consider not only the masculine and feminine principles but also Venus as your values, money, and resources and Mars as the assertive push toward what is desired.

We begin a new cycle here, be it in the realm of energizing love or assertively creating something of value.

“At some point you must realize that some people can stay in your heart, but not in your life.” ~ Unknown

 

PRACTICE RELEASING

Tuesday, November 3, 2015:

Tuesday begins with the stress of the Sun square Moon. This is the Third Quarter Moon phase, representing the need to let go of something we had hoped would last longer than it has. This probably does not represent an issue of long standing, rather it is something more immediate.

What began at the New Moon three weeks ago, that came into full view last Tuesday? That is the thing to release.

Sometimes, the stress of this square can try to persuade you into thinking that there is something more significant to release. In a few days, you can look more deeply into that, but for now you are asked to release something with a smaller footprint in your life. This is practice for the bigger release that is coming.

Today’s Leo Moon is not in her happy-go-lucky expressive guise. When she comes out to play and finds that the Sun is in Scorpio, her fire is dashed with icy waters.

These are two fixed signs with very clear ideas of how life should be lived. Leo wants to play and be loudly expressive; Scorpio wants to dig deep and discover in silence and privacy. They do not play well together.

Keep this in mind as you go about your day and allow space for both of these energies to live within the day. Be patient with others as we are all dealing with the stress between these two very powerful signs.

“Confidence is preparation. Everything else is beyond your control.” ~ Richard Kline

EXPAND & STIMULATE YOUR MIND

Wednesday, November 4, 2015:

Wednesday brings us another full day with the Moon VOC*! The VOC* period is the time between when the Moon makes her final aspect in one sign and when she enters the next sign. The general feel for the time will reflect the energy of her final aspect.

Tuesday at 8:47 PM EST, the Moon made her final aspect in Leo, along with a trine to Uranus, so that will be the energy that we hold until the Moon enters Virgo at 9:23 PM EST.

I would expect an intellectually stimulating day but probably not a great day for accomplishment. Stick with routine tasks along with exciting mental explorations.

What routine tasks do you need to get done? Filing paperwork, mindless forms that need to be filled out, cleaning house, or laundry? Combine those types of jobs with filling your mind with information that is stimulating and exciting. Listen to podcasts or an audio book. Perfect solution!

Conversations can enrich and expand your mind but won’t result in anything tangible over time. Remember that when settling on a topic to listen or talk about!

“You’ll never know who you are unless you shed who you pretend to be.” ~ Vironika Tugaleva

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT AND CLARITY

Thursday, November 5, 2015:

The Moon in Virgo certainly wants us to get to work on Thursday. That long VOC* period on Wednesday may have delayed progress, fueling our need to get a great deal accomplished on Thursday. Prepare yourself to be surprised by how smoothly work can go, how much you can get done by the end of the day, and how much you can enjoy the process as well.

Shortly before midnight, the Sun makes a sextile aspect to Pluto. This heralds your gaining clarity of the circumstances surrounding a powerful transformation that began last January 2015. Now, you get clear about what needs to be released.

For now, simply investigate your options, be curious about the new cycle of empowering and transforming your core that will being in January 2016, and begin to dream your future.

Take a chance; ask others what it is they are releasing for a new vision of their future? The question will take them by surprise; they will be delighted with the opportunity to share. Share how that conversation plays out, leave a note here.

“You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway.” ~ Steve Maraboli

 

SHARE WHAT YOU’VE LEARNED

Friday, November 6, 2015:

In keeping with Thursday’s theme of ‘release to prepare for a new cycle’, on Friday your mind turns to the dream that began in March 2015. The powerful internal transformation that began in January 2015 likely pulled you into a dream that began in March.

Perhaps, you lost clarity. In retrospect, you see that things were simply not as you imagined them to be. Now, you can see clearly what needs to be released and are able to articulate how this process has changed you.

How have your dreams and realities played out in this process? How has your life changed irrevocably? What can you bring from this situation into your life to support your future and be of service to others?

You have learned more than you imagine. Allow yourself to share what you have learned.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

SATURDAY EVENING SEEK BEAUTY AND PLEASURE

Saturday, November 7, 2015:

Saturday begins with the Moon still in Virgo. Following a brief VOC* between 7:48 AM EST and 10:15 AM EST, she enters Libra.

Take advantage of Saturday being the final day with Venus in Virgo to get some organization or detailed work done. By next week, you will have less energy available for those cleaning and organizing projects, as they will simply seem much less important.

Saturday evening will be good for social engagements, dinner parties, and art shows. This is not the evening for a wild party or an evening alone. Seek cultured environments of beauty and pleasure.

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie

 

HOLD OPPOSING POINTS OF AWARENESS

Sunday, November 8, 2015:

A slow start seems a good idea for Sunday. Although, being that this is the best part of the day, utilize it more actively if you have some connection to make that needs a lighter touch.

Venus enters Libra at 10:30 AM EST bringing your attention away from details and perfectionism. While Venus is in Libra, (until December 5th), you are encouraged to be more aware of the significance of your partnerships and the beauty you are able to create in the world and your life.

During this time, consider what you see as valuable and beautiful in your life and your values. Venus loves being in Libra where she feels so at home, creating beauty, love, and partnership. Enjoy her time here in her home sign.

The afternoon and evening may bring a certain amount of stress or discord as the Moon makes challenging aspects to both Pluto and Uranus. There may be some internal discord as you not only feel the deep value of partnership but also need space and autonomy. Both are equally valid; we can be aware and feel both deeply at the same time.

Learning to hold opposing points of awareness at the same time is a valuable skill indeed.

“Wisdom is merely the movement from fighting life to embracing it.”~ Rasheed Ogunlaru

__________________________________________________________
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, November 2, 2015, begins with the Moon VOC* (in Cancer) until she enters Leo at 10:48 AM EST.

Tuesday, November 3, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Leo) following a trine to Uranus at 8:47 PM EST until she enters Virgo on Wednesday, November 4, 2015 at 9:23 PM EST.

Saturday, November 7, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Virgo) following a conjunction to Venus at 7:48 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 10:15 AM EST.
