These are intense days. As you live each one of them, be aware of the gift that you can be to others, what you do and what you say each day to those you meet makes a difference.

Make a point each day to show unexpected kindness. No matter how small, your actions can make a profound difference in the love and kindness another person brings to their life and the people that they encounter.

Kindness is being called for, please do your part.
Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

Make your appointment today!

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

 
ACCEPT THE NEED FOR DEEP INTROSPECTION

Monday, December 7, 2015:

Early Monday morning, the Moon follows Venus into Scorpio. The emotional feeling of the day joins with the intensity of the internal path you began traveling last Friday when Venus entered Scorpio. You may experience a powerful need to go inward, to experience your own mysterious depth.

Last Friday, this energy (brought by Scorpio) may have felt unsettling and frightening.

As this week begins, I hope you are ready and able to embrace the mysterious intrigue that you deeply long for. As you embrace the power within this energy, you will be able to experience less of the fear, compulsion, and jealousy you may have felt as you accept the need for deep introspection and passion.

Open your heart, accept what is deeply present.

 
DYNAMIC UNDERSTANDING

Tuesday, December 8, 2015:

The depth and intensity that you have been dealing with in recent days takes a serious backseat on Tuesday. Feelings of defiance, excitement, or anxiety are your most likely companions on this day!

The Sun in Sagittarius forms a free flowing trine aspect to Uranus! This can be a highly dynamic day with the possibility of unusual discoveries, opportunities, and active, lively occurrences in your life.

If you are following this cycle, consider what excitement or stress began in April of this year. What action did you take on the situation in mid-July, and what was the outcome you were able to see by mid-October?

Now, consider what you have learned thus far from this cycle. Be ready and available to pass that information on where it is needed. Someone in your life needs to learn from your experience. Be willing to offer your perspective and your wisdom.

Watching the cycles of your life is a powerfully enriching opportunity to understand deeply the purpose and meaning of our experiences and our lives.

GETTING SERIOUS

Wednesday, December 9, 2015:

Wednesday begins with the Moon still in deeply private and sensitive Scorpio. However, she is VOC* until she enter Sagittarius at 5:26 PM EST. This offers you a day of low-key simplicity and maintenance. Don’t try to accomplish a great deal, keep it simple and pay attention to getting caught up on routine tasks.

Mercury leaves Sagittarius behind at 9:34 PM EST to enter Capricorn. The Sun and Mercury never move far away from each other; however, Mercury enters Capricorn a full 12 days before the Sun follows.

This suggests that your mind becomes deeply serious and focused on ambition while your energy is still in playful exploration mode. Perhaps, you can think of ways that this deepening mind can be supported by the playful energy of Sagittarius.

Over the next few days, with both the Moon and Sun in Sagittarius, you may encounter frustration between play and work. As always, balancing the two is most important.

With the holidays close at hand, there is a great deal of encouragement to play and yet, we now become more aware of the serious issues on the table in our personal lives and within the context of our world. Perhaps, you can use the broad perspective of Sagittarius to give substance to your more serious contemplation.

This is a time when you will be able to get more serious about letting go of some bad habits you developed while Mercury was spreading himself too thin and perhaps playing a bit too much while in Sagittarius.

 
BE CAUTIOUS

Thursday, December 10, 2015:

So, did you have some event or state of mind that created a good deal of difficulty for you last weekend? Have you been waiting for the next shoe to fall? Perhaps, this Thursday will bring the completion of that issue or show you another side to it.

Mars oppose Uranus is not what we would consider a ‘feel good’ transit. These are two planets that can stir up a lot of intensity when they come together in any configuration. Yes, they can bring excitement but also anxiety and stress.

With this opposition, we want to look back to where the cycle between Mars and Uranus began. What was the issue of tension and stress in your life back in March of 2015? This issue is clearly connected to the one we talked about on Tuesday.

Did something big happen last spring, something that showed you a new view on the world? What personal revolution began in your life? Full illumination comes now. Whatever began then is releasing its full potential, for good or ill!

If you feel you have been wronged by someone from that time, be very careful. Perhaps, your anger has been building for some time; outbursts could easily occur now. Pay attention to your thoughts and curb the temptation to impulsively lash out; the likelihood of defeat in any battle is far too likely. Do not press forward in that direction.

We are also in the very darkest phase of the Moon; spend time alone in contemplation.

 
PLANT A SEED OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Friday, December 11, 2015:

Friday offers an active morning but after 11:06 AM EST things settle down and the rest of the day sports a Sagittarius Moon VOC* until she enters Capricorn on Saturday morning. Therefore, allow yourself to spend the afternoon on routine, uneventful tasks.

The day begins with a trine aspect between Venus and Neptune. When Venus and Neptune come together in any configuration, the subject at hand is a dream. What was the dream you began or were building in February 2015? No doubt, you have experienced difficult days and struggles as you tried to manifest this dream; now, there seems to be a free-flow of acceptance for where you find yourself. Perhaps, the dream did not bring you where you expected it to, but now you see that it has brought you to a good place. Imagination and pleasure are strong and creativity is high.

At 5:30 AM EST, we reach the Sagittarius New Moon. This begins a new lunar cycle as you work to integrate all the parts of yourself. Each step forward is a step along the path; even our mistakes bring us forward.

Here, at the New Moon, take responsibility for planting a new seed, thought, idea, or a plan that will continue or deepen your spiritual quest. Spend some time with this thought; make a plan, plant a seed.

Release a mistake and start anew!

ACCOMPLISHMENT

Saturday, December 12, 2015:

Anticipate a serious day of responsibility, discipline, and accomplishment. The Moon enters Capricorn, the sign of hard work and integrity at 1:47 AM EST. If you celebrate the upcoming winter holidays, this is the day to get everything on your list done.

If you are able to go off on your own and work alone, it is amazing what you will be able to cross off your list; nose to the grindstone and all! There is no point in anticipating a ‘fun’ day but you can certainly feel great at the end of the day when you see all that you accomplished!

 
FOCUS ON AMBITION

Sunday, December 13, 2015:

If you are able to spend the early part (at least) of the day alone, that would serve you and your loved ones best. In the morning, the stern, unyielding Capricorn Moon forms stressful aspects to Pluto, Uranus, and Mars. Watch what you say and how you treat others. Don’t make assumptions. This would be a good morning to take extra time in meditation.

When the Moon is in Capricorn, we tend to be focused on what is practical and ambitious. You are not interested in trivial matters and most of what comes to mind for a pleasant Sunday may seem trivial. You will probably want to avoid dealing with intimacy and emotional situations. You are focused on the future and how you can improve your social standing.

Indeed, that does not sound like much fun but is likely where your focus lies on Sunday. Folks who get in the way of your laser-like focus may seem like a bother.

So, let me say it again: This would be a great day to spend time alone.

You may be perceived as being emotionally cold and a bit gloomy but if you can just focus on your ambitions and have time alone this can be a wonderfully productive weekend!

Poem for the week:

 

Blessing

 

Fair Rosamund by Arthur Hughes via Wiki Commons

Fair Rosamund by Arthur Hughes via Wiki Commons

On the day when

the weight deadens

on your shoulders

and you stumble,

may the clay dance

to balance you.

 

And when your eyes

freeze behind

the grey window

and the ghost of loss

gets in to you,

may a flock of colours,

indigo, red, green,

and azure blue

come to awaken in you

a meadow of delight.

 

When the canvas frays

in the currach of thought

and a stain of ocean

blackens beneath you,

may there come across the waters

a path of yellow moonlight

to bring you safely home.

 

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,

may the clarity of light be yours,

may the fluency of the ocean be yours,

may the protection of the ancestors be yours.

and so may a slow

wind work these words

of love around you,

an invisible cloak

to mind your life.

~ John O’Donohue ~

Over the coming year, we will continue to talk about the square formed between Saturn and Neptune. We will be asked to untangle some confusing internal struggles. Where do you experience a conflict between compassion and safety? This is Saturn square Neptune. If you look beyond your own skin and into the fabric of our culture, you can see it clearly indeed. The question comes down to how to protect the self and show compassion toward others.

You may find yourself in difficult situations where it seems that you have no choice but to either be kind and compassionate or put your safety and security first. We must each work to find a balance, to respond with compassion and kindness, and guard our safety.

This is the question of the year; this is a deep, powerful, and universal struggle. There are no easy answers. Only remember that closing your heart is never, absolutely never, the correct choice.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead? Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything. Allow more joy and love into your life.

Make your appointment today!

Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose.

Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

 

 

EXPRESS YOURSELF

Monday, November 30, 2015:

The week begins on a high note with the moon in Leo making lovely aspects to Saturn, the Sun, and Mars.

Keep in mind that the Moon moves through the signs quite rapidly. She spends between two and 2 ½ days in each sign. Consider that the Moon carries with her the emotional backdrop of our lives. As she passes through each sign, she brings the energy of that sign into the emotional environment of the day.

The sign of Leo must learn to outwardly express what hides deep within. Therefore, when the Moon moves through Leo we feel the urge to express that which is internal.

The drama, performance, and sometimes, childlike behavior of the Leo archetype is for the purpose of expression. Any person with a strong Leo signature in their horoscope must find a way to outwardly express what is internal.

On Monday, we experience the high side of Leo: the joy, the pleasure, and the playfulness. Unless, of course you have something to hide, in which case stay clear of anyone you may spill the beans to!

Whatever is internal wants to be expressed. Find a playful friend and enjoy!

 

 

SECRETS MAY BE REVEALED

Tuesday, December 1, 2015:

The Moon remains in Leo offering another day of high expressive energy. However, Tuesday brings this energy to a new level of intensification, excitement, or stress as Mercury trine Uranus, even as the Leo Moon joins them to form a grand trine in Fire. The Universe wants a party of expression!

What needs to be said can be said easily, dramatically, and joyfully. Expect the unexpected. If you have secrets, they may be revealed at this time. If you are freely expressing what is internal, this is a time of great excitement.

If you are withholding communications and information that you do not want others to know, this can be a time of great tension. Watch for secrets being revealed amid great tension or great excitement.

If you notice a new interest or curiosity, do not ignore it; there is something for you to learn within that curiosity. Something is calling you forward. Expect the unexpected; watch for it; allow it to move you.

WHICH DRAGON WILL YOU FEED?

Wednesday, December 2, 2015:

In case your attention wandered, Wednesday brings you back to the issues regarding your struggle between compassion and safety.

The Moon enters Virgo early in the day encouraging you to keep your feet planted firmly in practical reality. Even as you contemplate the confusing place where caution meets sensitivity and restriction meets imagination, take steps to get practical issues handled on Wednesday.

No big ideas, just practical routine accomplishment. As much as possible, allow both sides of the conversation to have space, avoid thinking you have to solve something right now.

Sit with it, weigh the two sides of the conversation. Your heart has an answer; your head may have a different one. Which do you listen to? Which dragon do you feed with your attention?

It makes all the difference. The one you feed is the one who will grow stronger.

 

 

THIRD QUARTER MOON – RELEASE

Thursday, December 3, 2015:

The Third Quarter Moon (in Virgo) reminds us that there is a point of release in all things. The lunar cycle that began at the New Moon on November 11, came to its full illumination at the Full Moon last Wednesday, November 25th, and now comes to the point where releasing and letting go is inevitable. Between now and the next New Moon on December 11th, is the time to release and let go.

With the Moon in Virgo squaring the Sun in Sagittarius, your heart and mind are once again seeking different directions and different paths. Acknowledge both, while owning your personal responsibility in all things.

Move slowly through this day gaining practical accomplishments and seeking practical skills.

Pay close attention and release your desire to have things look, or ‘turn out’, a certain way. Continue to hold space for differing ideas and opinions within yourself and between yourself and others.

 

 

LOOK DEEPLY

Friday, December 4, 2015:

On Friday, Mercury (in Sagittarius) squares Jupiter (the planet that rules Sagittarius). Your ideas and opinions are strong and you want to hold them tightly.

Think back to August; what new curiosity or idea did you encounter? This was an idea that asked you to travel into new territory. If you can identify what that idea, interest, or curiosity was, now is the time to take significant action that will move that idea into a future reality.

The Moon is VOC* in Scorpio until she enters Libra at 5:34 PM EST. Spend the evening with loved ones or in the creation of beauty; contemplate your big ideas and prepare for a shift in values over the coming days.

At 11:15 PM EST, Venus enters Scorpio. Venus has been happily enjoying her time in Libra since September 29th. Now, as she moves into Scorpio you will notice your values moving into deeper waters.

It is not enough to create charm and beauty, now you must bring your creation into more difficult areas that will transform you. You are asked to look into your darkest corners and to understand that neither beauty nor partnership can protect you from the intensity that dwells within.

Look deeply within and allow an inner transformation of your values.

DO NOT BURN THOSE BRIDGES

Saturday, December 5, 2015:

Saturday, you may spend in the assimilation of the new energies at hand. Adjust to the deeper sense of your values. What changes did your activities of Friday night bring? Did something occur that brought your ideas and thoughts onto a deeper playing field?

And, oh… let’s not neglect to mention that on Sunday we have a very intense transit that we will feel strongly over the last few days of this week. It will feel very strong on Saturday and heighten even more on Sunday.

If you notice dangerous levels of anger, aggression, or risk taking behaviors, please take some time out, go for a run, or find another way to release this energy without burning any bridges or causing difficulties for yourself or others.

It is important to remain connected to the reality of others. Sometimes it is easy to get so caught up in our own experiences that we forget how real the lives of others are and how profoundly our communications and actions impact them as well.

 

 

DEVELOP COURAGE IN THE FACE OF POWER

Sunday, December 6, 2015:

Please re-read the post from Saturday and consider how aggression and power dynamics are currently impacting your life. The tension and struggle is necessary for the purpose of release and letting go of something that needs to be relegated to the past.

Let’s look back to the full cycle between Mars and Pluto; this is a 2 year cycle that began in November 2014 and will be complete in October 2016. This is a cycle of transforming sexual and physical energies through empowerment, purification, and transformation.

The full illumination of this cycle occurred in July 2015. This can have a lot to do with developing courage and utilizing the power necessary to transform your life.

These are tricky energies to handle as they are very powerful and are not easily managed. If you are in a situation that does not feel altogether safe, pay attention to your intuition and make sure you find a safe space. If you need support, seek it.

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

Make your appointment today! 

Together we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose.

Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances.

 

CLARIFY PERSONAL VALUES OF LOVE AND RESOURCES

Monday, November 23, 2015:

Last Friday, Venus made contact with Pluto bringing us into contact with our need to transform deeply held personal values. Another perspective is presented, a different way to see possibly unacknowledged ways of understanding those values. Where do your habitual beliefs come from? Do the values you hold truly represent your most authentic beliefs?

Consider what beliefs or values regarding love or money began in early March of this year. Did something unsettling or anxiety producing occur that changed your perspective on your deepest values?

Whatever began at that time comes to the point of its full illumination. Have you made the best decisions along the way? If you took appropriate, courageous action at the end of March you will find yourself at a high point of inspiration; your values regarding money and love will shine with clarity. If you are at a point of deep anxiety, you probably took actions that led you along a path that no longer resonates with your deepest truths.

The Moon enters Taurus at 11:25 AM EST bringing stability to your understanding of the path ahead.

“Happiness in not something ready made. It comes from our own actions.” ~ Dalai Lama XIV

 

 

CLARIFY COMMUNICATIONS

Tuesday, November 24, 2015:

We have very busy days this week. On Tuesday with Mars sextile Saturn, you are aware of an upcoming goal, something that will begin in the summer of 2016. Begin now to look at the steps ahead, consider how to approach this goal steadily, seeking persistent progress.

Another cycle begins today, as Mercury is conjunct Saturn. Your thoughts seek practical reality. This is the beginning of a cycle of stabilizing your mind, thoughts, and ability to communicate. This may be an excellent evening to finally say what must be said. Over the coming months, the results of that communication will become clear.

You will probably not need the reminder, but it is important to be kind and very patient as you deliver communications that you are not sure if they will be happily received.

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.” ~ J. R. R. Tolkien

 

 

FULL MOON IN GEMINI: TALK ABOUT IT          

Wednesday, November 25, 2015:

The Full Gemini Moon arrives at 5:45 PM EST reminding us to look for that spot of clarity that has grown over the past two weeks. Where did you plant a seed at the New Moon that is now fully grown? Do you see how significant your communications, and the results of those communications are at this time? On Wednesday, Mercury square Neptune adding an ethereal element to your thinking and your stories. Your dreams may be idealistic, pushing you forward with imagination and hope. With Mercury also sextile Mars, you are given an opportunity to work with determination to reach your dreams.

At 12:16 PM EST, the Moon enters Gemini. You will likely feel excessive, impulsive energy. Watch your words, play with your imagination and allow yourself to take quick action of what lands in your lap. Use excessive energy physically.

“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” ~ Groucho Marx

REALITY MEET ILLUSIONS – THANKSGIVING

Thursday, November 26, 2015:

Structure meets delusion. On Thursday, Saturn squares Neptune (due to the upcoming retrograde this aspect will reoccur in June and again September of 2016). This is an aspect with long-term impact as each of the planets move quite slowly. Reality may meet illusions, and our imagination and dreams meet stability and stabilization, during this time period.

If you struggle with addictions or have something to hide (from yourself or others), this will not be easy as you encounter circumstances that may be difficult to comprehend. Misunderstandings, bewilderment, and even deception may arise. This is a time to look clearly at where you are hiding from yourself and finally gain clarity on your addictions or other ways that you do not look clearly at the reality of your situation. This is a powerful time to take control of your addictions or others wayward actions, that keep you from living your true authentic life.

Much depends on how you deal with the facts of your situation as they are presented now. You may learn a great deal about the importance of integrity and attentiveness in your life. This is an aspect that you will be working with for a long time.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” ~ Mark Twain

 

 

A DAY FOR FAMILY CONNECTION

Friday, November 27, 2015:

Friday presents a day of further contemplation on the issues we talked about on Thursday. That aspect between Saturn and Neptune is in full swing in our lives for the upcoming year. So get clear on where you hide your deepest self. Allow full view of your illusions.

The Moon is in Gemini VOC* until she enters Cancer at 2:27 PM EST. This is a wonderful afternoon or evening to spend with family. Go ahead and allow a bit of nostalgia. Yesterday, Thanksgiving itself, may have turned out more difficult than Friday.

Maintain a low-key family centered evening. Enjoy!

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” ~ Winston Churchill

 

 

KEEP IT LIGHT

Saturday, November 28, 2015:

If you spent Thursday and Friday with family, it may be time to head back to your own home on Saturday, or to pack up the relatives and say farewell.

The Moon continues through Cancer but she is not having a lovely day. In her travels on Saturday, she forms stressful connections to Mars, Pluto, and Uranus. Any underlying issues within the family could easily come to a head. Your best results will be to get the day off to a great start by connecting with everyone in your family with kindness and love. Keep it relatively light and be ready move forward into an evening alone.

“I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth. Then, I ask myself the same question.” ~ Haran Yahya

 

 

LEARN FROM THIS TENSION

Sunday, November 29, 2015:

The Moon continues through Cancer until 7:47 PM EST when she joyfully steps into Leo. Leo Moon is delighted to have her beloved Sun in the confident glow of Sagittarius. They are ready to play together.

However, the tension, (that is the square of the planets), between Saturn and Neptune is palatable. The Sagittarius Sun pushes his way into the mix, demanding answers to his rather blunt questions.

The Sun squares Neptune and conjunct Saturn on Sunday showing you glimmers of the issue at hand. Neptune asks where your self-interests may be inappropriate or unhealthy. Saturn asks you to do the hard work necessary to create a structure that will move you from that self-interest to deeply intuitive compassion and understanding. This is not the time to avoid or put off your own self growth and understanding.

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge” ~ Stephen Hawking

Contemplation for the week:
Karma suggests that whatever has been done in the past has caused a result in the present, and what is done in the present will cause a result in the future.
Since time is constantly changing, causes are changing, and the effects are also changing.
There isn’t any certain unchanging consequence, nor is there any certain unchanging cause.
Therefore it is void, but cause and effect are still there. ~ Master Sheng Yen

TRUST THE VIEW OF BOTH SIDES

Monday, September 14, 2015:

This Monday, the Moon is in Libra making no major aspects.

Consider what it is to speak the truth while seeing the entire situation from a full 360° degree perspective. We live in a culture that expects everything to operate as a binary; we are taught to believe that the entire world is good or bad, right or wrong, black or white. We are further taught that humans are intelligent or stupid, male or female, rich or poor, attractive or unattractive, worthy or unworthy.

Open your eyes! Can you see how everything runs along a spectrum? That everything falls somewhere on that spectrum rather than firmly on one side or the other of a fixed line!

Please consider how small this vein of thinking keeps us; how little space it gives us to move into the full richness of our lives. Each of us, and the world we live in, are so much richer than we imagine.

On Monday, stop to notice how you are able to see both sides of the situations and the different sides to the people you encounter. Even as you experience the value of seeing both sides, you realize how difficult it is to make clear sharp decisions when you are able to see the entire picture.

For now, trust that no decision needs to be made; allow the full spaciousness of your view to expand and hold all the parts that make up that picture.

Do not get pulled into taking a stand. By Wednesday afternoon, your decisions will be easier to make! For now, watch the picture as it begins to unfold. Trust that clarity will arise when the time is right.

“Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.” ~ H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

 

LET YOUR LEARNING COME THROUGH JOY

Tuesday, September 15, 2015:

Today, the Moon is in Libra, square Pluto, conjunct Mercury, sextile Venus, and opposite Uranus! Your thoughts turn to love, connection, making peace, and creating beauty. Keep your eyes open for an idea, or an opportunity to unexpectedly come to you, offering gifts of peace, love, money, resources, or beauty.

With Venus and Mars still traveling through Leo, your relationships may be experiencing more drama, or expression, than usual. Accept exactly where you find yourself and express your true self as fully as you are able.

In two days, Saturn will finally leave Scorpio behind. Thank the heavens! We have been ready for a long time to leave such intensity behind.

Saturn entered Scorpio in October of 2012. How many dark transformative paths have you walked down since that time? What have you learned from having certain hidden issues or deep secrets revealed, in your own life or others? Do you feel a release as some inner darkness has been cleansed?

For the next few years, as Saturn moves through Sagittarius, your learning will come with more exploration, travel, and education and less from areas of dark intensity. Are you ready to move into an easier place of learning?

Leave the darkness behind. Open yourself to the exploration of other ways of thinking. Your next learning opportunities will come from exploration and expansion rather than digging through darkness. Two more days! 

“I owe no explanations for my flaws. I don’t have to justify my mistakes, my past, or my insecurities. I am growing and learning.” ~ Unknown

SEEK DEEPER TRUTH

Wednesday, September 16, 2015:

The Moon is VOC* in Libra until entering Scorpio at 11:43 AM EDT.
It will probably be most productive to spend Wednesday morning without expectations, without pushing yourself toward any sort of accomplishment or work. Spend the morning working within your own routines as you build on your healthy habits of meditation, exercise, yoga, aspirations, visualizations, and any other tools you use.

Following the Moon’s entrance into Scorpio at 11:43 AM EDT, any projects or situations you are involved in will come into sharper focus. As you explore your personal situation, you may seek deeper to find the truth and the answers to the questions that have come up over the last several days.

You can access a very deep learning and a deep transformation on this final day with Saturn in Scorpio. Saturn’s next entry in Scorpio will not happen until November 2041!

“Pleasure can be supported by an illusion; but happiness rests upon truth.” ~ Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort

 

MERCURY RETROGRADE: SATURN ENTERS SAGITTARIUS

Thursday, September 17, 2015:

Thursday is a significant day with multiple shifts from the Universe.

At 2:10 PM, Mercury turns retrograde until October 9th. Remember, while Mercury is retrograde you do not want to start new projects or communications. You will be completing what has been already started. Be ready for a bit of down time to work on cleaning up the past.

Saturn then enters Sagittarius today! Your work, effort, and struggle are bound to be easier in the next few years than they have been in the past few years. We will be learning much through the simple act of study and exploring other ways of thinking and viewing the world.

We will all be given an upgrade with this movement into Sagittarius. We have learned much in the past few years through our secrets being revealed and digging into the depths of our souls. Now it is time to study, learn, and explore.

Another big story on Thursday will be the opposition between Jupiter and Neptune. This brings our attention to a significant dream that you began developing during 2009.

What was the expansive dream that you were developing over the course of that year? I would expect that it was an unusual dream or a dream that was intended for the betterment of all humanity. It’s unlikely that this was a dream intended for personal outcome. Yes, it was a personal dream but the purpose of the dream was much larger than your-self. Did you begin a course of study, or perhaps you developed a plan to bring technological advancements into the world or marketplace?

If you can identify what the dream was, take time now to get clear on the progress that has been made. The result is visible now in its state of full expression. Rejoice in where you find yourself. The dream has become real.

If you identify what began and find it in total failure, this is an important thing to pay attention to. It is simply telling you that you were on the wrong path; this was not the right dream for you. Don’t waste time beating yourself up! Take the energy available now to determine if there is anything to salvage and release it if there is none. New dreams are always available!

“Miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears.” ~ Richard Wilkins

 

LEARNING THE LANGUAGE OF THE UNIVERSE

Friday, September 18, 2015:

On Thursday, our environment changed, on a deep astrological level. You can feel the change if you pay attention on Friday morning!

Keep your eyes open. Watch your words and all forms of communication. Be clear and insist on clarity with all your communications. Ask the other person to repeat what they heard so you are certain they understood. Repeat back to others what you hear them say.

Give yourself extra time to get to appointments and extra time to get all sorts of work done. Give others the benefit of the doubt if they are late or say something out of left field. Ask for clarification.

The Scorpio Moon goes VOC* at 3:49 PM until she enters Sagittarius at 11:31 PM EDT.

Remember: 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. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment and are ideally suited for rest and contemplation.

“On a deeper level you are already complete. When you realize that, there is a playful, joyous energy behind what you do.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

OPEN YOURSELF TO LEARNING AND GROWTH

Saturday, September 19, 2015:

On Saturday, the Moon is in Sagittarius along with (the newly entered) Saturn.
This is a powerful day to consider what you want to learn or teach, over the next few years. Saturn moving through Sagittarius gives us a boost for the entire process of teaching and learning.

Expect to be amazed at how rapidly educational opportunities develop and grow on the internet as virtual class rooms become the norm. Do some research on where and how to learn something that will greatly increase your perspective of life and the vastness of your connection to your world.

How about Astrology!?  I will teach you how to make astrology useful in your life and your relationships. Contact me for a free 10 minute conversation about how Astrolore’s Astrology Adventure Program can move your knowledge into a richer yet more practical level.

ANTICIPATE PLEASURE

Sunday, September 20, 2015:

Sunday will bring you to the culmination of a great weekend. The Moon continues through Sagittarius allowing you to make a choice between seeking a higher understanding of the world or simply enjoying an afternoon party!

Perhaps Saturday night’s party won’t end until Sunday. Or perhaps your choice will bring you to a meditation center where you will do your best to explore the world and your life from a perspective that lifts you above the mundane world.

On Sunday, a Grand Trine forms between the Moon (Sagittarius), Venus (Leo), and Uranus (Aries). This offers a free flow of excitement, heart, and love. Anticipate (and offer) pleasure, love, and deep connection. Enjoy!

“It is not joy that makes us grateful. It is gratitude that makes us joyful.” ~ David Rast

__________________________________________________________
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*!

Wednesday, September 16, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Libra) following a sextile to Mars at 12:22 AM EDT, until she enters Scorpio at 11:43 AM EDT.

Friday, September 18, 2015, the Moon is VOC* (in Scorpio) following a square to Mars at 3:49 PM EDT, until she enters Sagittarius at 11:31 PM EDT.

__________________________________________________________

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.
The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

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

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

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!

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

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