Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: May 14, 2018 through May 20, 2018

 

This is the week we have all been waiting for!

The powerful New Moon on Tuesday joins the shift of Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius, and the challenging square aspect formed between Uranus and Mars on Wednesday.

A story is being fleshed out that speaks about your urge to break any rules necessary to become your most authentic self, regardless of the opinions and desires of others.

Because of the upcoming Mars retrograde, there will be three steps to this process and Mars will square Uranus three times.

The first view of the upcoming story occurs this week (it has been building in the background), full understanding comes in August, and the story will wrap-up in September.

Where in your life are you feeling the need for major, powerful change? Don’t fight it. I envision each of us waiting on a precipice.

There are choices to be made. You can take the initiative and jump, you can wait until you are pushed, or you may simply fall over the edge!

I recommend that you determine your highest truth and jump in the direction that will most invigorate that truth and allow you to express your most creative, wild side.

There is no point in attempting to hold a hard line of convention or stability.
As has been said: “The times they are a-changin‘.” Allow yourself to be moved.

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

Do you long to be respected and fulfilled as a working astrologer?

SAVOR YOUR SENSES

Monday, May 14, 2018:

Monday’s Taurus Moon is in her darkest phase as she moves toward Tuesday’s New Moon. Go inward and contemplate the changes that are just pushing you into a new reality. The Taurus Moon wants calm and stability. Perhaps, you can hold onto a tiny piece of that quiet, just for this day.

Stabilize your emotions through sensual care of your body. Get a massage, take a bubble bath, dress in your most beautiful clothes. Connect, honor, and love your body. Savor all of your senses. Pay attention to the beauty around you, or cook a delicious meal.

With the big changes occurring all around you, it will help to keep complications to a minimum. Don’t allow drama to pull you in. Keep quiet. Touch the beauty of simplicity.

 

TAURUS NEW MOON
DISRUPTION – CHANGE – REVOLUTION

Tuesday, May 15, 2018:

Tuesday’s Taurus New Moon is highly significant coming as it does on the same day that Uranus (the planet of disruption, change, and revolution) enters Taurus. This is a powerful shift, do not underestimate its ability to move your life in a new direction.

What house in your chart holds Taurus? This is the area of your life that is demanding change. Don’t try to avoid the profound shifts that are in the wings in the coming months. Allow yourself to be moved.

Take advantage of the New Moon being in the same sign by planting a seed that will support the changes you want to see in this area of your life. Think big as the change available is not a minor one!

At 7:48 AM EDT, the Sun joins the Moon at 24 degrees Taurus (the New Moon). Wait a day or even two but do not neglect your New Moon Ritual. Keep your ritual simple. Being in Taurus the intention you set will focus on maintaining stability in the face of the big shifts that Uranus is bringing.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Taurus, it will help you clarify what intention is needed. For example, if Taurus is in your 1st house, set an intention to maintain personal stability even as Uranus is shaking up your personality, in the 4th house, set an intention to maintain stability and calm in your family relationships or your home environment, even as Uranus is pushing for something shockingly new. If Taurus is in the 7th house, perhaps you need to bring calm and love to your committed partnership even as the relationship undergoes a sea of change. If it is in the 10th house, you may need to continue honoring your commitments even as you allow yourself to bring revolutionary changes to your work or business.

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that requires calm, stable, predictability. Better yet, make an appointment for a consultation. Make your appointment today!

 

~~New Moon Ritual ~~
Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming Moon Cycle.
Have two candles available. Light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the moment. Light another 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, then light the second candle, focusing on drawing to you what you want to create, bringing the two candles closer together. Do this each day until at the Full Moon, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.
The Taurus New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of loyalty, patience, dependability, and calm. This energy will be dearly needed in the coming months.
At 4:43 PM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini, bringing more curiosity into the evening hours. There is much you want to talk to others about as you evaluate the changes you feel coming.
The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection)for only a matter of minutes from 4:29 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 4:43 PM 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 that the last time Uranus was in Taurus was between 1934 – 1942. Think about what was happening in the world during those years.

 

SEEK EXCITEMENT AND INSPIRATION

Wednesday, May 16, 2018:

Much has occurred before you even wake up on Wednesday morning. Mars has left Capricorn behind where he has been pushing a serious agenda of work and ambition. He is now in Aquarius where he will remain until mid-November; staying so long due to a retrograde this summer. Mars in Aquarius suggests that your energy levels are less predictable, you may be more interested in group dynamics that in your own advancement. You are able to detach from your emotions when anger or difficulties arise.

Uranus entering Taurus and Mars entering Aquarius sets these two dynamic players up for an intensely challenging conversation. Mars and Uranus will form three highly challenging square aspects over the coming months. There will be one now, another again in August, and finally the last in September.

You will get the first taste of the story now, the plot will flesh out in August, and reach its conclusion in September. You will spend the months following that assimilating the full storyline.

Keep in mind that Mars is the planet of direct action, anger, and war. Uranus is the planet of defiance, innovation, and revolution. Watch the world, the culture, your life and the lives of those you encounter. Choose to find excitement, reach for inspiration, and seek unusual change.

With the Moon in chatty Gemini, there is certainly much to talk about. Listen and gather the information that you need to make the best decisions in this new environment.

 

I am excited to finally find a way to make a video hang out/ astrological forecast/ Q&A session work so I can help you learn more about how astrology works in your life!
Please watch this 3-minute video explaining how this is going to work. Let me know if you have questions. I will also be providing folks who join with a copy of their chart in the Whole Sign house system.

FOLLOW YOUR CURIOSITY

Thursday, May 17, 2018:

Can you expect to rest on Thursday? That depends on many factors and on the circumstances of the past few weeks.

This is a day to share information and emotional realities with others with the talkative Gemini Moon on board for most of the day.

The Moon rests between 2:18 PM EDT and 5:48 PM EDT, if possible you should do so as well. The evening will call you to spend time with family and loved ones as the Moon enters Cancer at 5:48 PM EDT. At 6:00 PM EDT. with a sextile to Uranus, your contacts with family or loved ones may bring unusual information or unexpected news.

Take everything in stride, look for the places that call you with curiosity or excitement. People often say to follow your passion but many (I would say most) folks don’t know what their passion is. The thing to follow is your curiosity. Think about the things that call to you, that light up your eyes; follow those things and you will find the excitement that will fill your life with passion.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:18 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 5:48 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

SMOOTH RUFFLED FEATHERS

Friday, May 18, 2018:

Friday offers more stability as you find your feet more firmly on the ground with Mercury (the planet of thoughts and communication) forming a supportive trine aspect to stable, grounded Saturn.

Consider what seed for stability you may have planted in mid-January at the conjunction between Mercury and Saturn. The gift from anything begun at that time is likely offered now. You have built something in your conversations or your thinking that is able to help stabilize you now. Rest in this.

Friday is a good day to talk with family members, smooth any ruffled feathers, share a meal, and extend mutual good will.

 

TAKE A RISK IN LOVE OR MONEY

Saturday, May 19, 2018:

Since April 24th Venus (the planet of love, beauty, and possessions) has been in Gemini, encouraging curiosity, thinking, and conversations about your values regarding love and money. On Saturday, Venus leaves that behind to enter sensitive Cancer. Now, you will notice a deeper emotional connection to these issues. You may be more interested in cuddling with a partner than in discussing the relationship. Watch your spending patterns as you are more likely to spend from an emotional need rather than a practical one. When you are feeling overly emotional over the coming weeks, leave those credit cards at home. Venus will remain in Cancer until June 13th.

At 1:30 PM EDT, Venus forms a sextile to unpredictable Uranus. Expect the unexpected regarding your values. You may suddenly come to a new understanding of your love relationships or your relationship to money or beauty. Sextiles provide opportunities, not gifts. Look for any opportunities that present themselves, go ahead and take a risk. Under the influence of this sextile, any opportunity that shows up regarding love or money is very likely to land you in a good place. Go ahead.

At 7:11 PM EDT, the Moon leaves maternal Cancer behind to enter playful, expressive Leo. She makes some stressful aspects over the course of the evening so watch that you are not overbearing in your enthusiasm. It will help considerably if you find the right folks to spend the evening with that appreciate your more dynamic self.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:04 PM EDT until she enters Gemini on Wednesday morning at 8:03 AM 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.

 

SUN ENTERS GEMINI – LEARN SOMETHING NEW

Sunday, May 20, 2018:

Sunday offers a relatively simple day of creativity and dramatic expression. The Moon remains in vital Leo throughout the day allowing you to relax and play before heading into another work week.

You can count on the upcoming work week feeling very different from the past few weeks as the Sun leaves steadfast, slow-moving Taurus behind and enters versatile perceptive Gemini at 10:14 PM EDT.

With the Sun in Gemini, everything seems to speed up. Your mind moves more quickly and you want to share your thoughts with others. You may be less attached to your emotions and more interested in intellectual pursuits. The Sun’s transit through Gemini tends to be more lighthearted as you are busy exploring new ideas and learning new things.

Spend time at that library, attend a lecture, talk to those who know what you would like to learn, teach those who are interested in what you know.

That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong.

POWERFUL VOICE; ELUSIVE BEAUTY

Monday, May 7, 2018:

The week starts off with a lot of astrological activity as though to make up for the quiet week we have just completed. Monday begins with a disagreement between Mercury, the planet of reason, and Pluto, the planet of power and darkness. Watch for conversations that involve deep challenges to your beliefs. Take a step forward on a conversation or study that began in late January 2018. Speak with full awareness of the words you choose. Listen with that same clarity.

If there is a power struggle, consider who holds the power. If they do, be prepared to side-step the pressure they bring. If you are the one holding the power, make sure you bring integrity and kindness to the conversation.

More complications ensue as beautiful Venus, the planet of values, resources, and love, forms a challenging square to Neptune, the planet that often bewilders us with its elusive qualities. Stay away from the booze and any shady financial dealings. Make sure you are not deluding yourself in money or love. Take time to appreciate beauty, create a work of art or something else of value, meditate, sing.

You may find yourself restless at bedtime with the 3rd Quarter Square of the Moon phase exact at 10:09 PM EDT. As the cycle progresses and the light wanes, what do you need to begin the process of releasing? With the Moon in Aquarius, look beyond the constraints of conventional thought. Consider the value of minimalism.

 

 

SETTING GUIDEPOSTS

Tuesday, May 8, 2018:

Tuesday is likely a day of adjustment after the multiple activities of Monday. This is a day to settle into deeper thought and a more inspired understanding of beauty and value.

The evening brings the steadfast Taurus Sun opposing Jupiter, the planet of belief and expansion. You may notice renewed clarity regarding your own path to higher understanding. What began to expand in late October 2017? Watch for a new story or a renewed story, regarding the issues of the #MeToo movement. Women are indeed, on the rise. Watch for it.

The Moon is in progressive Aquarius helping you to detach from worry about what the neighbors (family, friends, or whomever) might think or expect of you. You are able to set your own pace, to engage in original progressive thinking and planning for the path ahead. You understand that the path you plan is not for your feet to trod alone, you push forward into the future setting guideposts for those who follow.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* for a short period of time between 10:29 PM EDT and when she enters Pisces at 11:11 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

DEEPEN COMPASSION

Wednesday, May 9, 2018:

Late Tuesday night, the Moon left Aquarius behind and slipped into the imaginative sensitivity of Pisces. On Wednesday, she passes quietly through Pisces, forming only a supportive sextile aspect to Saturn in the evening.

Fruhling im Bergelli vy Giovanni Giacometti via Wiki Media

Saturn will help you keep your feet on the ground and not get swept into unrealistic, intangible daydreams of unrestrained imagination. Sometimes Pisces can do that, sweeping you away into escapism or dreams. When the Moon is in Pisces, it is not too difficult to get carried away into elusive and poetic fancies.

This will be a good day to create a piece of music, write a poem, or watch a movie. All these things will help you keep harsh realities at bay. Stay away from the booze, drugs, and unrestrained suffering. If you are suffering, turn to music, poetry, or your meditation cushion.

Contemplate the fact of suffering as a truly human condition, something we all experience. This understanding allows you to open your heart to deep empathy and compassion. Look into the eyes of everyone you encounter and know that they too suffer. Offer a silent prayer of unconditional love to each and every one of them.

ESCAPE WITH POETRY

Thursday, May 10, 2018:

There is so much dreaminess on the table this morning, it may be challenging to simply go about the business of living your everyday life. You would prefer to go into your own private, intangible inner landscape. Give yourself the space to do just that. Meditation and rest will support the best use of the day.

Light a candle, spend time alone, allow your intuition and your dreams to speak to you. Pay attention when they do. Write or read poetry that inspires you to enlarge your compassion and unconditional love for others.

Beware of escapism, drugs and alcohol, passivity, and hiding behind victimization. Write a poem instead.

Offer your support to others if you have it to give; ask for support from others if you are in need. Open to love.

 

 

FACE YOUR FEARS; SEE YOUR STRENGTH

Friday, May 11, 2018:

It may come as a surprise on Friday when the soft, passive energies of the Pisces Moon lift. At 8:41 AM EDT, the Moon enters assertive, fast-moving Aries. Set aside your thoughts of soft, dreamy escapism and take onboard an active, direct approach.

When the Moon is in Aries, you may have little patience for others. You do have plenty of energy to engage in physical activities and for demanding what is right for you. It is good to remember that the Aries Moon teaches courage. How do you learn courage? Certainly not by sitting on the couch resting. When the Moon is in Aries, face your fears, move outside your limitations, and learn courage.

At 7:10 PM EDT, there is a lovely trine aspect formed from the Taurus Sun to transformative Pluto. The cycle between the Sun and Pluto is a cycle of empowerment. This cycle began in early January; do you remember what issues regarding power were on the table in your life at that time? The result of what you began then is coming into focus, you can see your way clearly.

You are not there yet but you know what steps to take. The full expression of the power of this cycle will be clear in mid-July. Pay attention and contemplate where you have a powerful impact on others and where others are empowering you.
Face your fears and see your strength.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:03 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 8:41 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

KEEP YOUR WITS ABOUT YOU

Saturday, May 12, 2018:

The most important thing to remember on Saturday is to slow down, watch your words, and speak deliberately. The Moon in Aries offers fast, sometimes quite harsh emotions. You may feel edgy and impatient, you also tend to feel invincible. Calm yourself, don’t jump into any potentially dangerous daredevil acts. Physical activity will help but keep your wits about you.

To add to the inevitable thrust of the Aries Moon, Saturday also brings a challenging square aspect from Mercury to Mars. This brings hot restlessness and possibly anger to your thinking. It may be a real challenge to keep yourself out of verbal confrontations. Indeed, there may be injustices that you simply must speak out against on Saturday. Do so but do your best to not provoke others.

Remember to ask yourself repeatedly, before you say a word: is it true, is it necessary, is it kind? Any communication that does not pass that test should not be shared.

 

 

MAINTAIN A STABLE HEART

Sunday, May 13, 2018:

Intensity amps up on Sunday as the future presses forward taking a first step process that unfolds next week when Uranus finally enters Taurus.

At 6:50 AM EDT, Mercury, the planet of communication, joins Uranus, the planet of revolutionary change. Then, at 8:40 AM EDT, Mercury enters Taurus, the sign of stability.

The Moon, still in Aries, also joins with Uranus, highlighting wild activity to come, when she enters Taurus at 2:15 PM EDT. Immediately, the Moon joins with Mercury, setting the stage for the New Moon on Tuesday and Uranus’ pushes into Taurus. The revolution is here; in your life, culture, the world. Wake up.

What can you expect to happen to the endurance and dependability of Taurus when defiant, unsettling Uranus begins its seven-year residence here? What area of your personal life and our culture will be revolutionized by this shift? Expect the unexpected. Given that Taurus is ruled by Venus, you can anticipate revolution regarding cultural attitudes toward the Earth, women, money, food, love, and beauty.

Think about the rumbling changes you hear which are still in the background. Think about cryptocurrency, women finally beginning to make progress against the patriarchy, polyamory, the changing food industry, and environmental advancements. Your life and your world are changing. Uranus is the Awakener; watch the news, watch your life.

Maintain a stable heart.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* for eleven whole minutes between 2:04 PM EDT and 2:15 PM EDT, when she enters Taurus. 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.

 

“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…”
~ Dane Rudhyar “Astrological Aspects – a Process-Oriented Approach”1980

TAKE RISKS WITH YOUR HEART

Monday, April 23, 2018:

Monday’s astrological aspects suggest a simple day with the Moon moving smoothly through playful, fun-loving Leo. Don’t make the day complicated with unnecessary melodrama and tension. This is a good day to applaud someone else’s accomplishments and to step aside and allow another person to take the limelight.

If, however, you find yourself to be the one on stage (literally or figuratively), accept it with grace and style. Focus your attention and expression on warmth, generosity, and open-hearted kindness. Keep your pride and pettiness at bay.

You may want all the attention but as adults sometimes it is best to give others exactly that which we desire.

Today create something fun, play with children, or take risks with your heart.

 

EMBRACE CURIOSITY

Tuesday, April 24, 2018:

Explore ways to increase your connection to your physical body, your ability to assert yourself or your sexuality. In the wee hours of the morning, Mars forms a lovely sextile to Jupiter, the planet of amplification and expansion. Whatever you learn now will help inform and support a powerful shift that begins later this week when Mars connects with dynamic, forceful Pluto.

At 12:39 PM EDT, Venus, the planet of beauty and love, leaves the comfort of Taurus behind to embrace curiosity in Gemini. You will be more interested in conversations with your loved ones than you have been in the past 3 ½ weeks. Curiosity will motivate you on romantic as well as social and financial issues. You will be more interested and interesting but less inclined to deep emotional connection. Keep it light.

At 4:41 PM EDT, the Moon enters meticulous, productive Virgo. Spend the evening taking care of details, analyzing your health routines, and other practical activities.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:40 PM EDT until she enters Virgo at 4:41 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact

 

INTENSITY CRACKLES IN THE BACKGROUND

Wednesday, April 25, 2018:

Wednesday brings with it discomfort and heaviness as Mercury forms a challenging square to restrictive Saturn. You may feel the need to say something that just isn’t ready to come out effectively. It may not be easy but try to find patience!

Be gentle and kind with your words.

Even as Venus, newly in Gemini, wants to get things off its chest, Saturn insists that you wait and think carefully before you speak. The Virgo Moon may want to get in on the act with criticism and judgments.

Intensity crackles in the air as we approach the square between Mars and Pluto which is exact on Thursday morning. That energy which we have felt brewing won’t stay in the background any longer. Watch what is happening on the world stage.

 

 

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

Astrology in the hands of a proficient astrologer will help you see your life and your path forward from a perspective that will change everything.

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.  Make your appointment today!  

 

 

 

 

PUT YOUR SHOULDER TO THE WHEEL

Thursday, April 26, 2018:

Make no mistake, this is a time of powerful change. Looking at the social and political upheaval, you can’t miss the intensity of the forces that are beyond your control.

If you have personal planets or any sensitive points between 19 -23° of any of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn), the intensity and turmoil in the outer world is clearly reflected in your own life and your own heart. Consider a consultation, contact me.

Now, with Mars joining Pluto, a new cycle begins involving force and power. Read that sentence again. This is not a simple passing Moon transit or a low-key cycle. These are the big kids on the block, playing with fire. It is time to put a stake in the ground, to use your personal power for a cause that you passionately believe in.

Of all the issues that need your attention, it is your responsibility to find the one that speaks to you most strongly. Over the next few days, plan your path forward toward making a difference. It is time to put your shoulder to the wheel.

With the Moon in Virgo, your heart understands the importance of being of service. We each need to serve the higher good, each to their ability.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:50 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 9:13 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING

Friday, April 27, 2018:

The intensity of the conversation that Mars and Pluto began yesterday remains hovering beside us as we move into the weekend. Don’t forget the message of this new cycle: Find a cause you believe in and get to work helping others to make a difference in the world.

Your voice and your backbone are needed and will make a difference. Don’t assume there is nothing you can do, even the smallest efforts make a difference.

On Friday, the Moon is in Libra, encouraging you to ratchet down the potential anger and make a point of understanding each side of the issue. Do not assume that you are right and others are wrong. There are reasons and experiences in people’s lives that result in very different realities.

With the Moon in Libra, have a conversation with someone who sees the world in a radically different way than you do. Listen to what they have to say with an open heart and mind and allow yourself to see another’s perspective. Sharing realities, understanding ‘otherness’ is the only way to reach peace and understanding.

 

THE EVENING BRINGS RELIEF

Saturday, April 28, 2018:

You really do want to understand, cooperate, and make the world a better place with beauty and understanding. On Saturday, you can expect to feel a bit overwhelmed and discouraged when your efforts don’t immediately get you what you had hoped for. The important things in life always seem to take more time and commitment than you may have wished was the case.

As the Libra Moon forms a challenging square aspect to Mars and Pluto, she fans the flames of their meeting several days ago. This suggests a reminder of the message that there is work to do. Remember, this cycle between Mars and Pluto asks you to find a cause you believe in and get to work helping others to make a difference. Stay focused on what small steps you can make now to shift the course of your own mind and the minds of others.

By Saturday evening, you can relax and allow these heavy issues to move to the side of your awareness. It will feel good and lift your spirits to shift your focus and find beauty and love in social interactions. Spend the evening with a loving partner or good friends.

 

SCORPIO FULL MOON – REVEAL YOUR TRUTH

Sunday, April 29, 2018:

By the time you wake up on Sunday morning, the Moon has entered intense, cathartic Scorpio. When the Moon is in Scorpio, your emotions tend to go very deep, you look below the surface, and you will settle for nothing less than the truth.

Connections with others must be deeply powerful in order to be worth your while.

At 6:03 AM EDT, the Sun forms a lovely trine aspect to stabilizing Saturn. This settles the day considerably and will remain a major positive influence throughout the day.

The Moon is fully illuminated at 8:59 PM EDT. The Scorpio Full Moon is an excellent time to look in the mirror and see how you are powerfully changing right before your very own eyes. Scorpio insists that you uncover what is hidden and bring it into the open.

Consider the seed you planted at the New Moon on April 15th, how does the growth of that seed help you understand what now needs to be revealed? Allow a deeply concealed part of yourself to come to light that will change your path forward.

In the wee hours, while you sleep, the Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:32 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 3:12 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

At the moment I am looking into astrology, which seems indispensable for a proper understanding of mythology. There are strange and wondrous things in these lands of darkness. Please, don’t worry about my wanderings in these infinitudes. I shall return laden with rich booty for our knowledge of the human psyche. ~ Carl Jung

“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 challenge is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…”
~ Dane Rudhyar, Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach.

SENSITIVE, INTUITIVE LOVE

Monday, July 31, 2017:

Astrologically, Monday presents a very quiet day. The Moon forms a lovely sextile aspect to Pluto at 7:11 AM EDT. This will color a great deal of the day with a sense of empowerment. You may be able to release something deep within your heart that has fulfilled its purpose and is better left behind.

At 10:53 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, enters emotional, moody Cancer. Since July 4th, Venus has been moving through the inquisitive, restless sign of Gemini. This transit has created a state of curiosity regarding our deepest held values.

With Venus changing signs, your nervous state of flightiness settles into deep emotion. You have come to understand the importance of protective sensitivity and intuitive, nurturing care in your love relationships and all your personal relationships.

Venus is moving quickly through the signs and will leave behind this loving space soon. Venus will move on and start seeking loyalty and expressive vitality in Leo beginning on August 26th. For now, even in the face of so much exciting fiery energies, prepare to go deep with your closest intimates in seeking cozy, domestic love.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:11 AM EDT and until she enters Sagittarius on Tuesday morning at 8:02 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

OPEN YOUR MIND

Tuesday, August 1, 2017:

If your day begins before 8:02 AM EDT, the Moon will still be in private and introspective Scorpio. At 4:55 AM EDT, the intense Scorpio Moon formed a flowing trine aspect to Chiron, the asteroid that represents our deep healing path. You may awake from dreams that left you with a sense of understanding the direction to take in your healing journey.

At 8:02 AM EDT, the Moon enters Sagittarius where she encourages you to look at the more optimistic side of your situation. This is a day that may bring much learning, understanding, and wisdom. Open your mind to a new, more expansive view. Connect with folks who will show you a new perspective. Open your mind.

At 10:00 PM EDT, the extravagant Sagittarius Moon forms a difficult square aspect to Mercury, the keeper of your thoughts, communication, and logic. Your optimism may be challenged or you may question your own path of understanding. This is a quickly passing Moon transit and is best managed by not engaging in the challenge but simply heading to bed for a good night’s sleep.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) this morning until she enters Sagittarius at 8:02 AM EDT. Clearly, this will impact very little of your day. 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.

 

 

SEEK FREEDOM AND UNDERSTANDING

Diana and Her Nymphs by Robert Burns via Wiki Commons

Wednesday, August 2, 2017:

With the Moon in Sagittarius on Wednesday, you are seeking freedom and respect. This is a day of lightness and moving toward a higher understanding of where you find yourself.

You may absorb learning more easily with this expansive Moon placement. However, you do not want to find that learning in a classroom setting. You want to see the world and understand your place in it from a broader perspective. You want to meet people who think and view the world differently so that you can understand and experience what is new and unusual to you.

Think about what the element of Fire expresses: heat, transformation, anger, and action. There is currently a great deal of Fire showing up astrologically and also in our world in general. We see it clearly in the political discourse and in our own lives. Where do you feel this heat in your own life?

Very early on Thursday morning, Uranus, the planet of unpredictable change and defiance, turns retrograde following its very slow motion over the last few weeks. Where does 28° Aries fall in your personal chart? Stay conscious and be prepared to adapt to any unusual shifts and unexpected change over the coming days.

 

 

EYES OPEN

Thursday, August 3, 2017:

Very early Thursday morning, Uranus, the planet of unpredictable change and defiance, turns retrograde after moving very slowly over the last few weeks. Upheaval and excitement or possibly stress may spark in some area of your life.

Where does 28° Aries fall in your personal chart? Keep yourself awake to all the quickly changing parts of your life. Be prepared to adapt quickly and pivot when necessary over the coming days.

The Moon continues her adventures through philosophical Sagittarius helping you to keep your eyes open particularly when she forms a lovely, flowing trine aspect to Uranus at 5:39 PM EDT.

Enjoy the brief excitement this aspect suggests as the Moon enters serious, hard-working Capricorn at 8:37 PM EDT. Anticipate that Friday will be a day of work or sustained effort.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:39 PM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 8:37 PM EDT.

Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

STABLE ATTENTION

Friday, August 4, 2017:

Watch the news for power grabs and contentious legal issues coming to a head or coming out of the blue on Friday.

With the square of Jupiter to Pluto perfecting (at 2:48 PM EDT), there will likely be a sense that action is demanded. This is part of the Third Quarter Square. We are releasing powerful energies that began in December 2007.

The Capricorn Moon does its best to keep maturity and reason on the table but it will be a challenge. Do your very best to maintain your connection with Capricorn’s ideals of integrity, realism, and responsible maturity. The dark side of Capricorn is unbridled ambition, pessimism, and fear. You may see that in the eyes of those around you but keep your eyes on integrity and stable attention.

CARE FOR SELF AND OTHERS

Saturday, August 5, 2017:

At 7:38 AM EDT, the conventional Capricorn Moon joins with powerful Pluto. Then at 7:52 AM EDT, the Moon squares idealistic Jupiter bringing our attention directly back to the square between Jupiter and Pluto.

If you maintained a calm state of maturity, stability, and patience on Friday, you did well. However, the test is in full swing on Saturday as the stable yet often times pessimistic and fearful Capricorn Moon plays directly into the power grab that was in full focus on Friday. If these dynamics are not playing out in your personal life, be grateful. Much depends on where and how the Jupiter/Pluto square interacts with your own individual chart.

You can watch the dynamics clearly on display in the social and political landscapes. If this dynamic is problematic in your personal life or those around you, it is your job to approach the situations with kindness toward others and a huge dose of care and deep love for yourself.

 

 

GATHER TOGETHER

Sunday, August 6, 2017:

Sunday offers some relief as the Moon finds her way into innovative, progressive Aquarius. However, the balm provided might not be equal to the level of abatement we wish for, as the universe sets the stage and the buildup to the partial lunar Eclipse, which reaches perfection on Monday at 2:11 PM EDT.

Take the relief that is offered. With the Moon in objective Aquarius, allow your mind to support original thinking and humanitarian understanding. You are encouraged to gather with like-minded folks to prepare for the days ahead as our world dances with such profound uncertainty and upheaval.

Joining together in community, helping each other through the hard spots… This is what we are here for.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:22 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 8:16 AM EDT. Clearly, this will have very little impact on the day. 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.

AN ORIGINAL VIEW

Monday, July 24, 2017:

A very interesting Monday follows on the heels of Sunday’s powerful Leo New Moon. Go back and check Sunday’s post for suggestions on performing a New Moon ritual. You still have time to do the ritual anytime on Monday.

Along with the brand new, expressive Leo Moon, Monday offers two significant transits. At 10:53 AM EDT, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, goes head-to-head with Saturn, the planet of responsibility, maturity, and limitations. The end of October of 2016 began this Venus and Saturn cycle of stabilizing personal values that now comes to full illumination.

Pay attention to how you form structures and boundaries in your love relationships and your management of money and resources. This may not be easy. If there is a struggle, you know it is time to shift your perspective. If you are not acting with integrity and are not based in reality, this will be a wakeup call that maybe likely unpleasant.

However, it may be easy to let that difficulty go under the radar if the other transit of the day impacts your chart more strongly.

At 12:32 PM EDT, Mercury, the planet of our thinking and communicating mind, forms a lovely trine aspect to eccentric Uranus. This is a simple and powerful demand. Wake up!

Expect unexpected news, communications, or epiphanies that are tied in to the relationship resources focus of the Saturn transit. These two transits will work together.  You may feel great anxiety or great excitement. Keep your ears and eyes open and be ready to experience a highly original view.

 

 

ANALYTICAL PRECISION TAKES A STAND

Tuesday, July 25, 2017:

By the time you are up and moving on Tuesday, the Moon has entered industrious, orderly Virgo. As long as you have work to do or a project at hand, it will be a productive and efficient day from the start.

As we are adjusting to Mars and the Sun being in creative, expressive Leo, Mercury leaves Leo behind to enter into modest Virgo. Mercury is very much at home in Virgo and happy to leave the heat of Leo for the cool calm of this Mutable Earth sign.

In Virgo, Mercury reminds us that the Sun is never very far from Mercury and will not remain in the dramatic sign of Leo for too long. Summertime certainly passes quickly and the Sun will follow into Virgo in less than four weeks. It is important to enjoy the heat, vitality, and great, playful energies while they are available.

Mercury, the planet of our thinking and communications, leaves drama behind in Leo and becomes more practical and concerned with others in Virgo. Mercury will remain in this analytical sign until he enters Libra at the end of September. Take advantage of this time to get precise, efficient work done. This is perfect for getting the nitpicky, detailed paperwork done that you have not wanted to complete.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for a very brief period of time from 5:22 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 6:33 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

VITALITY AND STRENGTH

Wednesday, July 26, 2017:

Campanil Ascendiendo by Eugenio Cruz Vargas via Wiki Commons

Wednesday is a powerful day! The day begins with a razor sharp ability to use our power in an efficient manner as the Moon forms a beautiful trine aspect to powerful Pluto at 1:27 PM EDT.

At 8:50 PM EDT, when the Moon forms of challenging square to Saturn, we may wonder if we pushed too hard and may have the tendency to be overly critical.

However, the real action builds throughout the day to its climax at 8:56 PM EDT with a conjunction from the all-powerful Sun to assertive Mars. This is the beginning of a one-year cycle of illumination of strength, self-determination, and physical energy. You can think of this as similar to a New Moon, involving the Sun and Mars rather than the Sun and Moon. Think of it as the time to plant a seed of personal strength and perseverance toward a long-held goal.

Because the Sun and Mars are in Leo, you will want to incorporate self-expression or leadership as a part of this goal. If you have personal planets (your Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars) or your Ascendant or Mid-Heaven between 2° and 6° of any fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius), you will probably feel a great abundance of internal or physical energy. Find a way to use it with kindness.

If you notice yourself feeling frustration or anger, go out for a run or move direct physical energy through your body in some powerful manner. Sexual expression is a great use of this vital strength. Learning to manage your inner warrior or goddess without selfishness is essential at this time.

 

 

SOOTHE THOSE RUFFLED FEATHERS

Thursday, July 27, 2017:

The early morning hours may feel a bit unsettled on Thursday. Take it in stride without question. At 11:36 AM EDT, the Moon enters graceful Libra and directs our attention to diplomatic cooperation and social decorum. We feel more tolerant of others and more interested in presenting ourselves in a more amicable, sympathetic light.

Late Thursday evening, the gentle, cordial Libra Moon forms soothing sextile aspects to both the Leo Sun and Mars and encourages the smoothing of any ruffled feathers that may have occurred on Wednesday. Allow yourself to be soothed, calmed, and softened. There is no reason to carry a grudge and it would be difficult to do so under this influence.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:31 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 11:36 AM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*. there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

GO BENEATH THE SURFACE

Friday, July 28, 2017:

The Moon continues through harmonious, thoughtful Libra throughout the day on Friday. Your attention is on creating beauty, balance, and cooperation. This will work out well for most of the day.

However, at 6:35 PM EDT, the Libra Moon joins with idealistic Jupiter. With this transit, you may be so busy trying to make things look good on the outside that you hardly notice what is going on beneath the surface.

Take the time to look beneath the carpet and to honestly see what is hidden below. Is your life as you present it? Or are you, like so many, trying to make everything look pretty in the eyes of other people? Think about how easy it is to make your life look beautiful without acknowledging the everyday ups and downs.

At 8:38 PM EDT, when the Moon forms a challenging square to Pluto, get real with yourself and show your deepest vulnerabilities to those you love. Don’t plaster those vulnerabilities all over Facebook but do get real with yourself and those who need to truly know you. <3

ENDING ON A NOTE OF DEEP CONNECTION

Saturday, July 29, 2017:

All in all, you can expect a pleasant day on Saturday as the Moon continues through social, romantic Libra. The Libra Moon is encouraging you to create beauty and express love and appreciation in all your close friendships and intimate partnerships.

At 4:25 PM EDT, the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to Venus encouraging feelings and expressions of love, abundance, and gratitude.

However, an hour later, you may need to take a break and spend some time alone. At 5:30 PM EDT, the graceful Moon forms a difficult opposition to unsettling Uranus. Pay attention to how you express yourself and the words that you use. Give a lot of slack to what others may say or how they say it.

You may say something you didn’t mean to say and upset the equilibrium of the day or maybe someone says something to you with the same effect. Apologize or accept the other person’s apology and move on. Don’t get stuck in anger or get your back up against the wall. Remember, this is a Moon transit and will pass quickly if you don’t engage with it.

At 8:23 PM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio asking that our relationships go to a deeper, more intense, profound, and emotional level. This is an excellent night to go very deep with a highly trusted loved one, express your vulnerabilities, and hold your heart open to those that are closest to you.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:30 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 8:23 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

A SPARK OF CURIOSITY AND A SERIOUS DECISION

Sunday, July 30, 2017:

Sunday begins with a delightful sextile aspect from relationship-oriented Venus to unconventional Uranus. When Venus and Uranus began their cycle at the very beginning of June, their cycle’s purpose was to learn how to incorporate individuality and bring your own unique stamp to intimate relationships and resources. At the sextile aspect on Sunday, pay attention to ideas and conversations that spark curiosity and highlight possibilities in this direction.

Midmorning will bring a challenging square aspect from the introspective Scorpio Moon to the expressive Leo Sun and Mars. Something feels uncomfortable and you need to take an action or make a decision that will direct your path forward.

Take your time in the considerations and make these decisions consciously and carefully. Consider the seed you planted at the New Moon on July 23rd; do what must be done now to assist in the healthy growth of that aspiration.

The day ends on a sensitive note as the Moon forms a sweet, romantic trine aspect to dreamy Neptune at 11:30 PM EDT. Sleep uninterrupted and travel in your dreams.
