GENEROSITY OF HEART

Monday, May 21, 2018:

Monday is a quiet day with the creative Leo Moon forming no major aspects to any planets throughout the day.

While the Moon is in expressive playful Leo, it may be difficult to focus on a job or other practical endeavors. You would probably prefer to play with children or engage in creative pursuits. Keep in mind that the higher purpose of Leo is the development of generosity and open-hearted love. Pay attention to your interactions with others; pay attention to the generosity of your own heart.

At 10:02 PM EDT, the Moon enters Virgo which will make Tuesday an easier day to get back to the practical realities of the work week.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) all day until she enters Virgo at 10:02 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.

 

EXPRESS YOUR DREAMS

Tuesday, May 22, 2018:

Tuesday’s practical Virgo Moon helps you focus on simple productivity throughout the day. This should be an easy day to work with detailed information and mundane tasks. With the Moon trine Saturn at 12:20 PM EDT, you are able to see clearly what needs to be done and face the responsibilities at hand.

A sextile aspect forms from Mercury to Neptune as the evening approaches. Your focus will shift as conversations and ideas take on a softer tone. This is a good evening to soothe any harsh edges that may recently have been created between yourself and others. It will be easy to express a gentler more sensitive perceptive. This will be a great evening for any project that entails creative writing or the expression of your dreams.

Head to sleep early and you can avoid a tendency to say more than is advisable. Watch that pillow talk as Mercury opposes Jupiter in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

 

GET YOUR POINT ACROSS

Wednesday, May 23, 2018:

In the early morning hours, pay attention to what should and shouldn’t be said or openly expressed. The opposition of Mercury to Jupiter could have you saying what you didn’t mean to say. Once the day is in full swing that won’t be a problem.
The Moon remains in Virgo forming supportive aspects that will provide a smooth, effective day.

You may want to stay up late on Wednesday night to give a mighty push forward on a project or other endeavors.

You very well may have too much energy to fall into an easy, gentle sleep. At 10:39 PM EDT, a gratifying trine aspect forms between the talkative Gemini Sun to assertive Mars, now in Aquarius. Your ability to creatively use your mind and communication skills is powerful. Engage in an active discussion, debate, or lively conversation. You should be able to get your point across.

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:56 AM EDT until she enters Libra Thursday morning at 2:51 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.

DIPLOMACY AND KINDNESS

Thursday, May 24, 2018:

Your spirits feel quite buoyed as you begin the day on Thursday with the Moon newly in peace-loving Libra. A Grand Trine is formed as the Libra Moon lines up to a trine aspect to both Mars and the Sun before 9:00 AM EDT. This is a lovely way to begin the day!

The afternoon and evening bring some challenges as the Moon forms difficult aspects to both relationship oriented Venus and restrictive Saturn. You may notice yourself or others being moody or downright cranky.

Don’t let these quickly passing influences change your course. Continue moving forward utilizing the Libra Moon’s ability to see both sides of all situations, and engage in kindness and diplomacy. Focus your attention on bringing beauty and love to all people and situations you encounter.

 

ALLOW VULNERABILITY; CULTIVATE TRUST

Friday, May 25, 2018:

You awake Friday morning with the gentle reassurance of where you find yourself in your life. At 5:52 AM EDT, expansive Jupiter forms a flowing trine aspect to dreamy Neptune. Your higher understanding and spiritual awareness support expansion and unconditional trust in the higher purpose of your life.

Shortly thereafter, another trine aspect forms between Mercury and Pluto. There are powerful truths to be told. These may entail difficult conversations, perhaps the need to speak of things that are normally kept undercover in your family or social circle. However, you are feeling the strength in your opinions and are willing to stand strong in what needs to be expressed.

At 5:04 PM EDT, with a square aspect from the Libra Moon to Pluto, anger may arise. This is a Moon transit and will pass quickly, do not let it push aside the benefits of what you have accomplished earlier in the day. You may want to spend an hour or two alone in the early evening. Keeping with your own good company will prevent tempers from quick unproductive flare-ups.

With an overnight opposition from Venus to Saturn, Friday night and Saturday may show clearly where hidden rifts reside in your intimate partnerships. Look reality in the eye and allow for deep vulnerability. Do your best to see the situation from the perspective of each person involved. Allow vulnerability; cultivate trust.

The Libra Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:04 PM EDT until she enters Scorpio on Saturday morning at 9:39 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.

CLARITY AND ADJUSTMENTS

Saturday, May 26, 2018:

While you were sleeping, Venus (the planet of love, money, and personal values) opposed Saturn (the planet of reality and stabilization). This provides the ability to clearly see what you have recently developed in your partnerships, finances, and other areas of deeply personal values. The cycle between Venus and Saturn is a cycle of stabilizing love and personal values. This cycle began in late December 2017; consider what began at that time. The growth of what was planted then is now clearly visible.

Make adjustments that are needed now. Look clearly at any mistakes and make changes now. Look clearly at your successes and continue forward with determination. Your understanding of these things may be very different from the perspective of others. Embrace the ambiguity of opinions.

At 9:39 AM EDT, the Moon enters Scorpio, profoundly deepening your emotions. Superficial connections and conversations will not cut the mustard. Go deep. Connect profoundly.

The Libra Moon is VOC* until she enters Scorpio at 9:39 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.

 

DIG DEEPLY

Sunday, May 27, 2018:

Sunday’s Scorpio Moon offers a day for delving deeply into complex emotions and deep connections. The Moon touches off sweetness and expansion throughout the day providing a sense of mystery and dreaminess. You have the patience and concentration to dig deep and find the rich compost beneath what may appear unsightly on the surface.

This is a great day to tackle tasks or conversations that require a clear and focused mind. Look below the surface, dig deeper. You may be surprised to find solutions to long unresolved issues.

Throw away what is no longer needed or useful in your life. Make space for what delights you. Allow change.

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

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.
