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.

__________________________________________________________

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transits between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

BEGIN A DREAM JOURNAL

Monday, February 19, 2018:

In this highly sensitive, Piscean season, the Moon in Aries isn’t quite certain how to behave. Normally, Aries simply moves ahead with determination and a ‘take no prisoners’ attitude. However, with so many planets in Pisces, even he has to concede to slowing down a bit.

Luckily, Mars in Sagittarius lends a hand and at 10:18 AM EST, with a trine aspect between the Moon and Mars. Once that occurs, you’ll have more than enough energy and strength to move ahead. Take advantage of this opportunity, push forward to develop something deeply internal and highly spiritual.

By evening, with a square from the Moon to Pluto, pay attention to any interpersonal power struggles. Breathe fully, hold your line of integrity solid, but otherwise, avoid engagement in difficult relationship dynamics. The stress will pass, if you simply move aside and allow anger and power play to slide off your back.

With such a pile-up of planets in Pisces, this is an excellent time to begin a dream journal, a meditation practice or make a new connection with poetry, deep spirituality, or a soft, sensitive connection with the natural world. Allow and invite intense compassionate love to flow through you.

 

 

A LOVELY EVENING FOR CONNECTION

Tuesday, February 20, 2018:

Tuesday morning begins with some stress and anxiety as the assertive Aries Moon joins with defiant Uranus. This potentially aggressive energy is not welcome in the highly emotional environment we are currently involved in.

Don’t allow frustration to push you into conversations or responses that you know will not serve anyone involved. Allow any morning aggravation to roll off your shoulders, knowing that the afternoon will bring calm.

At 2:12 PM EST, the Moon enters patient, level-headed Taurus. Taurus plays very well with Pisces and with four planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune) and Chiron in Pisces, this makes for a happy evening.

At 6:17 PM EST, the Moon forms a lovely sextile aspect to the Sun. This aspect gives the opportunity for a lovely evening of deep compassion, connection, and love. On a more practical note, this is a lovely evening for cooking a beautiful meal, lighting candles, or giving a massage.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:11 AM EST until she enters Taurus at 2:12 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.

 

 

A LOVELY MOMENT IN TIME

Wednesday, February 21, 2018:

As the Moon continues her path through steadfast Taurus, she brings delight to the group of planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Neptune, and Chiron) moving through poetic, dreamy Pisces.

Woman in Pink Dress and Black Collar by Jozsef Rippl Ronai via Wiki Media

In the midst of the day’s pleasure, Venus joins with Neptune, this conjunction begins a new cycle of transcendent beauty and love. This is a highly romantic connection. Your heart is open to deep levels of sensitivity and unconditional love. Be aware, however, that this combination also suggests that clear vision is not necessarily possible. You may indeed be wearing rose colored glasses that prevent you from seeing reality.

Happily, at 2:23 PM EST, Mercury wakes you from an unrealistic dream by forming a sextile aspect to Saturn. This sets your feet on the solid earth and you are able to see the long term potentials of whatever or whoever is sweeping your heart away.

The evening provides a good mix of reality and fantasy based levels of romance and love. Embrace this lovely moment in time.

SLOW DAY – MENTALLY ACTIVE EVENING 

Thursday, February 22, 2018:

Thursday morning continues with the same lovely energies that were activated on Wednesday. The Moon continues through sensual, dependable Taurus without encountering any major bumps along the way. Don’t get too comfortable as the steadfast energy of Taurus ends on Thursday evening.

At 7:08 PM EST, the Moon leaves earthy Taurus behind to enter versatile, restless Gemini. With the Moon in Gemini, you will want to spend the evening talking, thinking, and making active mental connections. It may be a challenge to slow your mind down enough to get to sleep Thursday night. Your mind will want to keep moving, exploring, and gathering information. Watch documentaries. Gather information about things you know nothing about. Give yourself time to slow down for sleep.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:46 AM EST until she enters Gemini at 7:08 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.

 

 

ALLOW DISCOMFORT AND MOVE AHEAD

Friday, February 23, 2018:

The First Quarter Moon (in restless Gemini) occurs as the day begins, suggesting that you look back at the seed you planted at the New Moon last week. Consider what action you need to take to move the process you began forward.

The Moon in chatty Gemini is at odds with the depth and emotional sensitivity of the Pisces Sun. Throughout the day, the Moon forms a challenging square aspect to the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune. You may feel uncomfortable, conflicted, and confused. Don’t take any of that discomfort too seriously. It will pass if you let it.

There is no point in trying to go deeply into intense study or research but you will be able to get a lot accomplished if you focus on catching up on any errands and emails that you have been putting off. Don’t be hard on yourself. Allow life to be exactly what it is in this moment.

Evening at Balaton by Jozsef Rippl Ronai via Wiki Media

 

A LIGHT-HEARTED DAY

Saturday, February 24, 2018:

The confusion and discomfort of Friday will not follow you into Saturday. That is the good news!

Plan a day of conversations, curiosity, and time spent with light-hearted friends. This is not a day for heavy conversations but for light banter and fun. Get curious about the world around you and explore ideas and simple activities. Get together with friends to play board games. Don’t take yourself too seriously.

At 10:06 PM EST, the Moon enters inward, intuitive Cancer. You will feel yourself and those around you slow down. Sunday will be a very different day as you will be more interested in sentimental nostalgia and time with family and familial loved ones.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:58 PM EST until she enters Cancer at 10:06 PM PST 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.

 

 

PUSH THE PAUSE BUTTON

Sunday, February 25, 2018:

You may wake on Sunday with feelings of discontent as an unsettling square aspect is formed from Venus to Mars at 7:01 AM EST. This puts your desire to take action in conflict with your deeply held values. This challenge may manifest within the dynamics of your closest relationships.

Just as you are grappling with this interpersonal discomfort, Mercury joins with Neptune, suggesting the need to slow down and allow your instincts to direct the course of action. I would suggest that you SLOW DOWN, seek balance, and don’t assume anyone has the correct answer to any dilemma that shows up. Go ahead and push ‘pause’.

At 12:45 PM EST, the Sun forms a lovely sextile aspect to Saturn, settling down the anxiety and difficulties of the morning. This presents you with an opportunity to build and stabilize a solid structure to stand on.

The Moon continues through Cancer throughout the day, pay attention to your deep need for comfort and to those who need your nurturing attention. Approach all interpersonal dynamics with kindness and support.

RUTHLESS AMBITION

Monday, February 12, 2018:

The week does not begin on a light-hearted note but you may appreciate that you are starting with a sense of personal drive and ambition. Going back to sleep is not an option as you are fully aware of how much work you have ahead of you.

Get on track right away and use the energy available for accomplishment. The Moon moves through hard-working, authoritative Capricorn throughout the day.

At 2:22 PM EST, the Moon joins Pluto, demanding that you push forward with determined empowerment. You may be a bit ruthless in your drive for success.

At 6:42 PM EST, with a sextile being formed from the Moon to expansive Jupiter, the evening offers a bit more room to relax. Look for opportunities that you have been too focused to see earlier in the day. Find a way to release the stress from so much focused ambition, get outside, take a walk, and shift your perspective.

Sleep may not come easily on Monday night as a square aspect is formed from the Capricorn Moon to Uranus, shortly after midnight. Exercise or meditation before bedtime will help.

 

 

EXPRESS YOUR UNIQUE SELF

Tuesday, February 13, 2018:

Early Tuesday morning is uneventful until the Moon enters Aquarius at 10:12 AM EST. The serious ambition and effort of yesterday gives way to progressive ideas and an objective understanding of what is truly important. Notice how your emotions are not apt to get in the way of your unusual or progressive ideas.

Tuesday evening, Mercury forms a challenging square aspect to Jupiter, asking you to consider how you explain and express your beliefs. You may have a clear internal understanding of what you believe and yet struggle terribly to express those beliefs in a way that others understand. Make the effort to think things through before trying to put them into words.

At 9:22 PM EST, the Aquarius Sun forms a lovely sextile aspect to Uranus. This energy will last well into Wednesday and offers you an opportunity for spontaneous expression of your most unique, authentic self. Go ahead, get on stage with that improv team, you’ll do great! 😉

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:44 AM EST until she enters Aquarius at 10:12 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.

 

 

YOUR UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP DOES NOT FIT IN A HEART SHAPED BOX

Wednesday, February 14, 2018:

Wednesday offers excitement and the ability to move forward without uncomfortable emotions getting in your way. What do you want to do that requires that you detach yourself from what those around you think?

When the Moon is in open-minded Aquarius, allow yourself to surprise others with a true, authentic expression of your most unique self. Allow yourself to be the outsider as you consider how much freedom that position offers. Cultures and humanity move forward on this energy. Without the ability to be truly unique and move outside the boundaries of approval, we would be in the dark ages of the 1950’s still.

At 9:30 AM EST, the Moon forms a sextile aspect to Mars, offering an opportunity to take direct action on something important to your individual, unique path.

This is not the Valentine’s Day given to expressions of tender sensitivity. This Valentine’s Day will be best utilized to take an objective look at your partnerships and create a path forward that takes into full consideration the unique, possibly unconventional needs of your particular relationship.

 

 

AQUARIUS NEW MOON, SOLAR ECLIPSE

Thursday, February 15, 2018:

Thursday begins with great excitement as Mercury (the planet of your mind and thoughts) forms a sextile aspect to eccentric, unusual Uranus at 10:07 AM EST. Your mind is ready and open for unexpected and original insights. The Aquarius Moon adds to the picture as she gets into this lively conversation that is already going on. Keep your mind open to epiphanies and revolutionary ideas and experiences that could come out of the blue.

At 4:06 PM EST, we reach the Aquarius New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 27° Aquarius.

I will separately post the instructions for the New Moon Ritual which you should do over the next day or two. You do not want to do it while the Moon is still under the beams of the Sun!

At 6:19 PM EST, a sextile aspect is formed between lovely Venus and stable Saturn. Keep your eyes open and consider opportunities that may present themselves regarding the stabilization of your love relationships, your financial resources, or your creative endeavors.

At 9:42 PM EST, the Moon enters Pisces, asking that you go inward and care deeply for the more mystical side compassionate side of your nature. This is a great night for deep, profound, and refreshing sleep.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:06 PM EST until she enters Pisces at 9:42 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.

 

 

~ Weekend New Moon Ritual ~

Friday will be the best day to plan and implement your New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. First, take a moment to write down what changes you wish to create or increase in the upcoming Moon cycle. For this Aquarius New Moon, set an intention regarding your humanitarian aspirations, intellectual or scientific innovations, or other independent innovations.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Aquarius, it will help you clarify where inventive idea wants to manifest. For example, if Aquarius is in your 1st house, set an intention of expressing the uniqueness of your personality; or if Aquarius is in the 4th house, set an intention to bring more unusual ideas into your home. With the Water Bearer in the 7th, the intention may be to meet unconventional people or begin a progressive new path with your partner or in the 10th, you may see the need to bring new innovations or make unpredictable changes to your business or career.

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that needs to grow through the expression of your most unconventional ideas and objective brilliance.

Have two candles available for the ritual; light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are in this moment. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. When you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are choosing to create as you bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day and at the Full Moon in two weeks, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Aquarius New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of progressive, revolutionary growth.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

 

 

INSPIRATION AND COMPASSION

Friday, February 16, 2018:

On Friday morning, Mercury reaches the point of Thursday’s New Moon and Eclipse, possibly revealing something that has been previously obscured or unclear. You may be surprised by an unanticipated revelation.

With the super sensitive Pisces Moon forming a lovely sextile to Saturn, early in the day, you are able to minimize any difficulties through deep compassion and staying in touch with transcendent or mystical inspiration.

If you find yourself feeling confused or susceptible to inner suffering, move your attention outward and look at those around you with deep, unconditional love and compassion. This is a day made for meditation, empathetic responses, or creating dreamy works of inspired poetry, music, or beauty.

 

 

REST AND DREAM

Saturday, February 17, 2018:

Two major aspects dominate Saturday. First, at 6:20 AM EST, Mars, the planet of action, forms a challenging square aspect to Neptune. This creates a situation where it is deeply challenging to get anything truly accomplished. As you try to step forward in action, you will be likely stopped by a sense of weakness or confusion.

I would recommend that you simply allow this to be a day where action is elusive, allow the world to lack clarity. You could struggle against it and try to get things done or you can just allow the day to dissolve under your feet. There is no point in pushing against the grain. Let yourself rest, go to the movies, hang out on a beach, and dream.

At 11:28 PM EST, Mercury leaves Aquarius behind to join with the Moon, Venus and Neptune, already in dreamy, sensitive Pisces. Pay attention to your dreams, they will support a path of understanding. On Sunday, the Moon will leave Pisces behind even as the Sun will join this mystical gathering.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:14 PM EST until she enters Aries on Sunday morning at 7:05 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.

FLOATING IN DREAM SPACE

Sunday, February 18, 2018:

On Sunday, you will awake to the Moon’s entry into Aries at 7:05 AM EST, bringing restless, emotional energy to the table. This energy is more than a bit out of place given the pile-up of planets occurring in the mutable water sign of Pisces.

At 12:17 PM EST, the Sun joins the gathering! With the ingress of the Sun into inspirational Pisces, it joins Mercury, Venus, Neptune, and Chiron all in this surreal, elusive, and intangible sign.

The Aries Moon doesn’t know how to behave in this environment and may be frustrated, particularly as she forms a square aspect to Saturn at 7:15 PM EST.

Over the coming weeks, it is important that you learn to go with the flow, to take time for meditation and quiet, to go inward, to touch the divine within yourself and see the divine in others. Experiment with different types of music and find out what sings to your soul. You will benefit from incorporating music in your everyday life.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) until she enters Aries at 7:05 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.

 

 

“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…”

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transits between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

KEEP CALM AND UNRUFFLED

Monday, February 5, 2018:

When you went to sleep on Sunday night, you may have anticipated beginning the week with diplomacy and calm. However, although the Moon continues her path through charming, social Libra, even she has her limits.

With an early-morning struggle against power hungry Pluto and a mid-afternoon challenge with defiant Uranus, Monday’s story will have elements of the bizarre and the unconventional. Watch for power plays and anti-establishment rhetoric.

This will be a good day to practice maintaining a steady level of internal peace and harmony. Remain unflustered and unruffled even as you keep your eyes wide open to your environment and those around you.

At 10:57 PM EST, the Moon enters the deep, intensely private waters of Scorpio. Head to bed, this is a wonderful night for passion between the sheets and, if that is not forthcoming, seek passion and intrigue in a deeply intense dream state.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 1:45 PM EST until she enters Scorpio at 10:57 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.

 

UNEXPECTED POSSIBILITIES

Tuesday, February 6, 2018:

Tuesday is a very different day from Monday! First off, with the Moon now in Scorpio, it is less important to you that you please others. Your focus is more on internal depth and intensity. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we can oftentimes become brooding and secretive. However, as the day turns into evening, you may be surprised by unexpected connections or shifting relationship values reflected in a sextile aspect from Venus to Uranus.

Think back to early June of 2017 when the cycle between Venus and Uranus began. Did you meet someone at that time that has remained a part of your life or did you begin the development of a creative project? This is a cycle of waking up to new understanding, a new view of your deepest values, seeing what is real beneath the surface of love, resources, or beauty.

At this time, it is important to explore what you have learned since the beginning of the Venus and Uranus cycle. It is time to prepare to release and begin the next new cycle in late March of this year.

If you meet someone during the first few days of this week that opens your eyes with curiosity, understand that they may have something important to teach you regarding love or beauty. Don’t walk away. This meeting may provide an opportunity that will take root in March.

 

ALLOW PARADOX

Wednesday, February 7, 2018:

Wednesday morning brings us to the First Quarter Lunar Phase, a challenging square aspect between the Aquarius Sun and the Scorpio Moon. This suggests a choice between going into deep emotional spaces (Scorpio) or staying in the intellectually stimulating but emotionally detached coolness of Aquarius.

Feeling pulled in these two directions may be uncomfortable but your job is to find the balance and allow each to be expressed. Allowing paradox to exist in your heart, mind, and life expression is key to a full and joyful life. This morning offers time to practice.

However, at 1:15 PM EST, when the deeply private Scorpio Moon forms a sextile to empowered Pluto, there is value in moving into areas of depth and mysterious intensity.

At 4:57 PM EST, the Moon joins with expansive Jupiter, beginning a cycle of expanding your understanding of emotion through deep introspection and passion. Go deep or go home.

SEEKING WISDOM

Thursday, February 8, 2018:

At 8:54 AM EST, the Moon enters Sagittarius, a mutable Fire Sign. Fire brings great energy, determination, and the ability to move forward; the mutable part of the sign allows for change and adaptability.

With the Moon in Sagittarius, you want to understand more than you have understood in the past. This shows you are ready to expand your ability to see a larger view of your life, your culture, and your world. You may be drawn to explorations of other cultures and how other people think, believe, and live. You find yourself on an adventure, exploring your higher levels of understanding as you develop wisdom.

Thursday also brings us to Uranus moving beyond a 5° orb of its square to Pluto. These two ‘big kids’ on the playing field have been dancing around with this challenging square aspect between them since 2009. The conversations they have engaged in have had a powerful impact on the world culture.

Together, Uranus and Pluto speak of revolution, upheaval and profound change. We are ready to turn a corner on that conversation and begin to truly assimilate the shift in the greater world as well as our personal lives. Let’s see how that works out.

The Scorpio Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:17 AM EST until she enters Sagittarius at 8:54 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.

 

CONSIDER A ROAD TRIP

Friday, February 9, 2018:

The Moon continues through Sagittarius on Friday, increasing your anticipation of the weekend. Your thoughts race forward; go ahead and plan an adventure for Friday evening and through Saturday! Please allow those plans to land you home for a more serious day on Sunday.

When the Moon squares Neptune at 11:04 AM EST, you may find yourself at a low point in the day. Clear thinking will not be available, so take a meditation break or go for a walk. Allow yourself space to be unproductive and trust it to pass.

At 3:33 PM EST, with the Moon now forming a sextile aspect to Mercury, mental clarity returns and you are able to get much more done that if you tried to power through the earlier part of the day.

Enjoy an adventure on Friday evening. Spend time with folks who are outside of your normal social circle. Learn about perspectives that are unlike your own. Go on a road trip or at least travel in your heart and mind.

 

ALLOW THE INCREASE OF LOVE

Saturday, February 10, 2018:

The Moon spends most of the day still in lighthearted, idealistic Sagittarius. At 11:38 AM EST, with the Moon forming a trine aspect to defiant, inspirational Uranus, this will be a lovely morning for brunch with friends. Meet with friends who will engage you in interesting, expansive conversations about thoughts and ideas. Don’t spend time with folks who gossip or bring you down.

If your love connections have felt a bit cool or more intellectual than heartfelt, Saturday will change that. At 6:19 PM EST, Venus enters the soft, compassionate, and deeply sensitive sign of Pisces, where she will remain until March 6th. This is a great time for romance, although not great for starting relationships as you may not get a realistic view of the person in question.

A square aspect from the quirky Aquarius Sun to Jupiter in Scorpio at 6:20 PM EST should serve to alert you to pay attention to your tendency to overextend yourself.

Remember, that self-care is paramount and overextending yourself to please others will not serve you. A cycle of expansion that began in late October 2017 requires attention now. What action can you take to support what began then? Take action to increase your understanding and belief of who you are in this world, on this planet, in this universe. Send unconditional love to all.

If you were hoping for an exciting Saturday night, you may want to reassess your expectations. The Moon enters serious, levelheaded, determined Capricorn at 9:21 PM EST. Saturday evening will be a good time to engage in conversations regarding the serious structures and foundations you want to build to support your plans for the future.

The Sagittarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:38 AM EST until she enters Capricorn at 9:21 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.

 

SOLITARY ACCOMPLISHMENT

Sunday, February 11, 2018:

Sunday brings us to quiet but serious day. At 9:17 AM EST, the hard-working Capricorn Moon joins with Saturn (the planet that rules Capricorn).

This is not a day to laze around the house to watch movies or read novels, it is not a day to go out and have boisterous fun with friends. This is a day to engage in a project that will leave you feeling accomplished at the end of the day.

Is there a house project you have been putting off? Is there something you want to build for future use? You will enjoy the project best if it is a solitary endeavor, not a shared experience. Spend time alone.

At the end of the day, look at what you have accomplished and give yourself a pat on the back before ending the week.

PONDER THE PATH AHEAD

Monday, April 24, 2017:

On Monday, your mind is steady and directed toward completion of whatever is uppermost in your thoughts. In late November of 2016, Saturn and Mercury joined together with the intention of developing an idea, project, or plan. You have come a long way with that project, and with Mercury in retrograde motion, you have the time now to stabilize any issues that need to be smoothed out to support your forward motion of that project.

Find your “flow” and go forward with the least resistant path. You will have more opportunity to direct this project toward the end of April and the full vision will be clear in mid-June.

This is a day to consider your ideas and perspectives. It’s a good day for pondering alternatives and sharing your ideas with a companion. By taking these steps, you will gain clarity and understanding of the path ahead.

With the Moon in courageous Aries, you should feel self-assured and capable on Monday as well. All in all, a good day! Enjoy.

 

 

WITH EVENING COMES STABILIZATION

Tuesday, April 25, 2017:

Unless you get up very early in the morning, you will be able to avoid the power dynamics and problems that can result when the decisive Aries Moon squares controlling Pluto at 4:47 AM EDT.

It is less likely that you can avoid the anxiety that may arise mid afternoon when the strong-willed Aries Moon connects with innovative Uranus.

There are two things to remember about Moon transits with Uranus. First, you always want to keep in the forefront of your mind that Moon transits pass quickly and will not be disruptive unless we engage them in an inappropriate manner. Second, a transit of Uranus does not always manifest as anxiety, another likely expression is that of excitement. During this transit, you may see, understand, or experience something that changes your perspective significantly. This may cause anxiety or it may cause excitement.

At 5:54 PM EDT, the Moon, still in demanding Aries, forms a lovely trine aspect to unflinching Saturn allowing you a far more easygoing evening.

At 9:56 PM EDT, the Moon enters patient Taurus as she prepares for her monthly New Moon phase on Wednesday morning. Create a cozy nest and sleep well.

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:54 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 9:56 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that you begin. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

TAURUS NEW MOON SEEK COMFORT

Spring by Konstantin Pankov via Wikicommons

Wednesday, April 26, 2017:

Today’s New Moon is at 6° Taurus. A New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon occupy the same degree of the zodiac. This makes the Moon invisible from our perspective on Earth.

Think of the lunar cycle as comparable to the life cycle of a plant. At the New Moon, a seed is planted. During the upcoming weeks, this seed grows and culminates its growth at the Full Moon. From there, as the Moon wanes and the plant decays brings us back to the next New Moon two weeks later. This is the cycle of birth, growth, full illumination, deterioration, and death. It is the cycle of all living things.

For the Taurus New Moon ritual, set an intention regarding the ability to steadfastly build or grow something. This is the perfect time to plant a garden or get plants started indoors.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds 6° Taurus, it will help you clarify what you need to begin at this point in the cycle. If you don’t have that information, simply go with your instinct of what area of your life needs stable and deliberate effort.

Don’t neglect this New Moon ritual. Keep it simple. Take a moment to write down what you wish to begin, create, or increase in this upcoming cycle. Have two candles available for this ritual. Light the first candle to represent yourself, just as you are at this moment in time. Light the second candle as an aspiration of what you aspire to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle. As you light the second candle, focus on drawing to you what you are creating, as you bring the two candles closer together. At the Full Moon in two weeks, bring them fully together and see the results of what you have created. Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

The Taurus New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of steadfast determination, reliability and conservative effort. Prepare yourself to grow in deliberate stability, comfort, and sensuality.

RELIABLE CONSISTENCY

Thursday, April 27, 2017:

On Thursday, the reliable and patient Taurus Moon encourages you to focus on creating comfort and calm both internally and in the outer world. Pay close attention and maintain a slow steady pace in all that you do and with everyone you encounter. Offer reliable consistency in your interactions with others.

This is a day to get or give a massage, cook a healthy meal, and support the sensual, earthy nature of life.

You may spend much of the day looking forward to the comfort and security of your bed and yet, at 9:38 PM EDT, when the Moon enters active, inquisitive Gemini, going to bed no longer calls you! Your mind moves more quickly and you want to converse with others or follow the activity of your mind. As much as possible, keep your mind calm; you may need to spend time in meditation to finally get to sleep. Friday your mind will accelerate in wildly quirky and inventive ways bringing us to an exciting and upbeat start to the weekend.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) for 20 minutes between 9:18 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 9:38 PM EDT.

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

 

 

CONFIDENCE AND INDIVIDUALITY

Friday, April 28, 2017:

Friday promises to be an active and energizing day. At 9:13 AM EDT, Venus leaves Pisces, a place where she took great pleasure in imagination and sensitivity and enters determined, bold, and courageous Aries. Venus represents social needs, love, money, and all that we value most dearly. Now, in Aries we find her seeking what she wants directly, decisively, and with bold confidence. If you are seeking more love, resources, or beauty in your life, Venus will support you in taking direct action between now and when she enters Taurus on June 6th.

At 10:49 AM EDT, perceptive Mercury, in its retrograde motion, makes direct contact with innovative Uranus. Combined with Venus’ current assertiveness in Aries, this enlivens your desire to break free from rules and limitations. You find yourself eager to express your independence and individuality. Keep your eyes and ears open for unconventional logic and unusual perspectives. Don’t be surprised if words come out of your own mouth that you are not expecting to hear. Don’t be surprised at what you hear from others.

At 10:36 PM EDT, there is a smooth flowing trine aspect between the clever Gemini Moon and optimistic Jupiter in Libra. You can anticipate adventures in social situations and encounters. Bring your most idealistic inquisitive and fun self into the world on Friday evening and have a great time.

SPARKLY TO SENSITIVE

Saturday, April 29, 2017:

Saturday will provide you with a great opportunity for stimulating conversations and interesting interactions. The chatty Gemini Moon forms fun sextile aspects to both conversational Mercury and unpredictable Uranus in the early afternoon.

Whatever fun you engaged in on Friday night, the good mood extends into Saturday. Spend time with your friends; engage in activities that stimulate innovative ideas and unusual thinking. This should also be a great day to research scientific or unconventional projects. Ask questions to spark conversations that will reveal information that would otherwise remain unknown. Folks will be happy to share their thoughts and ideas throughout most of Saturday.

However, at 5:29 PM EDT, the Moon opposes cautious Saturn, insisting that we face some more serious question.

At 9:48 PM EDT, the Moon enters domestic, emotional Cancer suggesting that Saturday night it would be best to stay home and keep your loved ones close in a nurturing, sensitive environment. Create a nest and cuddle on the couch. If you have friends or family who needs extra love, bring them a meal or find another way to nurture them on a deep emotional level.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:29 PM EDT until she enters Cancer at 9:48 PM. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

GIVE AND RECEIVE LOFE

Sunday, April 30, 2017:

Sunday is a day you may want to plan on staying close to home. The extremely sensitive Cancer Moon shows each of us our deepest inward vulnerabilities. She also shows us how we long to be nurtured, cared for, and protected even as she shows us how we can provide that level of deep affection to those we love.

You may long to look back in time, making this a day to explore old photo albums, letters, and mementos from the past, and generally allow yourself the luxury of nostalgia and sentimentality. A small reminiscence goes a long way; don’t get stuck there. You will know when you have gone far enough and it is time to come back to the present moment and enjoy the reality of the life you now live.

Cook a good meal; provide nurturance and love in this very moment.
