Hi, Folks!
Please keep this in mind, when the Moon is VOC this week, she isn’t fooling around! Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, she remains VOC ALL DAY LONG!! Along with Mercury & Mars Retrograde, these are days to keep a low profile and not seek accomplishment. This would be a great week to be on vacation or otherwise resting!

LEAVE YOUR CREDIT CARDS AT HOME

Monday, August 6, 2018:

Get your day started early on Monday because we soon have three full days of no Moon activity at all! The Moon is VOC* all day long on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Your best bet will be to take advantage of the days when the Moon will support activity and accomplishment! Monday brings the lighthearted, friendly energy of the talkative Gemini Moon to the table, allowing easy engagement with others.

Monday evening, Venus happily leaves stuffy Virgo behind to enter agreeable Venus ruled Libra. Venus represents love and beauty and, while in Virgo, she may have been overly critical and a bit prickly. In Libra, she has an easier time relaxing into the moment and finding beauty and value in cooperation and diplomacy. You may notice yourself and others more interested in compromise, diplomacy, and romance.

With the Sun forming a challenging square to Jupiter, you may feel a pull towards overindulgence. This may be a good day to leave your credit cards at home and pay careful attention to any promises you make. Don’t give away the store.

 

 

FRUSTRATION AND EPIPHANIES

Tuesday, August 7, 2018:

The generally talkative Gemini Moon makes no aspects today suggesting some frustration as all that you want to say may fall on deaf ears.

As Uranus turns retrograde, it focuses its attention bringing further frustration and impatience to the areas of life that don’t seem to be moving forward as quickly as you would like. A sense of limits and restrictions bubble under the surface. Practice mindfulness, patience, and allow epiphanies to surface. You may be surprised by an unexpected occurrence or communication.

At 8:32 PM EDT, Venus in Libra forms a lovely trine to Mars in Aquarius. This opens communication, ideas, and the movement of energies between folks. Spend time in public to enjoy. Follow up over the coming days on any possibilities that show up now.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* from 3:55 AM EDT until she enters Cancer after midnight – ALL DAY. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

SWEETNESS REPLACES RESTRICTION

Wednesday, August 8, 2018:

Wednesday morning brings us the Moon in protective, loving Cancer. The Cancer Moon wants to create security within the context of family, biological or chosen. However, difficulties arise with an opposition between the Moon and Saturn just as you begin the day. This suggests a difficult challenge in getting your needs met. Others may simply not see you as clearly as you would like to be seen. You may feel unloved and restricted in showing love.

By bedtime, things feel better as Mercury joins the Sun, providing clarity where it has most recently been missing.

This is followed by a Grand Water Trine formed between the Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune. This soothes all the challenge of the day and offers a great time for sweet late night lovemaking or at the very least delightfully beautiful dreams.

SOBER REALITIES

Thursday, August 9, 2018:

Thursday offers a day for emotional rest as we settle down following an early morning confrontation between the Cancer Moon and powerfully disruptive Pluto.

Following a rocky start to the day, try to make an effort to manage your emotions with rest. Allow what was said or done over the breakfast table to be released; don’t hold onto negativity. Mistakes happen and we all respond in ways that are inappropriate at times. Forgive others as you hope others will do the same.
It is important to approach the end of the day with a clean slate if possible.

At 9:33 PM EDT, Venus squares Saturn. This evening and Friday will likely present challenges to your relationships with others. You may feel sobered by the realities of your situation regarding love, relationships, and finances. Perhaps, it is a good time to schedule a serious clarifying conversation with a loved one. Don’t implement the conversation now in the Dark phase of the Moon but begin to accumulate your talking points and clearly approach the situation over the coming days.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* From 7:20 AM EDT until shortly after midnight (ALL DAY) when she enters Leo. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

Friday, August 10, 2018:

It may take a bit of effort to get out from under some uncomfortable dreams in the night but moving forward, they will fade into the distance. On Friday morning, the Moon will be in lighthearted, playful Leo. However, it is the Dark phase of the Moon with the New Moon coming on Saturday, this brings a sense of waiting and endings, not so lighthearted after all.

You can expect Thursday’s square between Venus and Saturn to continue into your experience on Friday. You may find yourself dissatisfied with your partner, friends, or your paycheck. If the things that bring value and meaning to your life seem to not fit you properly at this time, examine what needs to be released in order to bring new growth in the coming months.

Do you need to have a clarifying conversation with your partner, lover, or friend? Do you need to ask for a raise? Don’t take action now but get clear on what needs to change to bring more satisfaction and love into your heart.

GENEROSITY AND OPEN HEARTED LOVE

Saturday, August 11, 2018:

Saturday brings the final eclipse of the season. This is a partial Solar Eclipse occurring at 18 degrees Leo at 5:46 AM EDT. The Solar Eclipse happens at the New Moon.

Think about this as a New Moon on steroids. Remember, that each New Moon, we plant a seed. What do you want to begin now that will develop over the coming months? Consider what house Leo is in your chart. What seed do you want to plant in that area of your life?

Don’t neglect your New Moon ritual (although wait until Sunday) do give it added weight as whatever seed you plant will be activated for a much longer period of time. The Moon (once again) is VOC ALL DAY! Rest, don’t take any actions that you want to amount to anything as they will simply not develop in the way you would wish.

This is a complex day with Mercury and Mars still retrograde, the New Moon, our last Eclipse, and the Moon VOC*. Spend time developing your understanding of how to best use the expressive nature of Leo. Express generosity and open-hearted Love.

The Leo Moon is VOC* From 5:58 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 11:59 PM EDT – All day! Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

A PRACTICAL FLOW

Sunday, August 12, 2018:

Just after midnight on Saturday, the Moon enters tidy, meticulous Virgo. This is a Sunday to settle in for practical activities. You may want to spend the day creating constructive plans for the upcoming week. Do the grocery shopping, laundry, and house cleaning.

A Grand Earth Trine is formed in the late afternoon from the Virgo Sun to Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. This is a very pragmatic day where all the preparations you do for the upcoming week will go smoothly and easily. Enjoy a flow of orderly functional work.

At the end of the day, Mars (still retrograde) backs into Capricorn, adding to the practical Earth centered vibe. Take advantage.

UNIQUE FRIENDS – PROGRESSIVE IDEAS

Monday, March 12, 2018:

You’re likely to begin Monday morning with serious ambitions and deliberate plans for accomplishment, courtesy of the Capricorn Moon. However, you may need to prepare yourself to release any tight hold you have on those expectations.

At 11:36 AM EDT, when the Moon makes contact with Uranus, you may be surprised at how easily you lose the focus that felt so solid at the start of the day. Don’t expect that focus to return but don’t let it cause any great concern either.

At 6:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters progressive Aquarius, encouraging new perspectives and progressive thinking.

Prepare for an interesting, potentially socially engaged evening. Find something unusual to do, spend time with your most unique. unconventional friends.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 11:36 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 6:45 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.

 

 

ILLUMINATE HOPE

Tuesday, March 13, 2018:

Tuesday continues to bring us face to face with the anxiety or excitement of differing points of view. Keep your mind open and try to see things from different perspectives. It is important that we do what we can to understand how others view the world.

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, forms a First Quarter Square to restrictive, determined Saturn on Tuesday morning. This will hold us in its grip for several days. Venus joined with Saturn on December 25, 2017, beginning a cycle of stabilizing or restructuring love and beauty. Now, at the first square between them, it is important to consider what actions you can take to move forward with this cycle. Is this a reference to love, money, creativity, beauty in your life? How can you bring more maturity to this issue? Perhaps, you have been avoiding reality in some way. Look clearly and take practical action to grow up and love more deeply.

Another important transit today involves a lovely, flowing trine aspect from the Sun to Jupiter. The cycle between them began on October 26, 2017, shortly after Jupiter entered Scorpio. We are just now seeing the deeper, more profound gifts that will ultimately be bestowed through the cycle that began at that time (think #MeToo).

With Jupiter’s retrograde in Scorpio, dirt is still being excavated in order for deep growth while expansive understanding begins to illuminate the deeper issues of ongoing misogyny. Jupiter offers us hope.

 

 

SHARE IDEAS

Wednesday, March 14, 2018:

The Moon continues through independent, unconventional Aquarius on Wednesday. This is basically a quiet but friendly and engaging day.

The Beloved by Andrew Pavlovsky via Wiki Media

You should be able to see situations and other people from a new and unusual perspective. Take advantage of this. Go ahead and engage your mind in progressive, humanitarian thinking. Gather with others to share ideas. Aquarius gives us an opportunity to see outside of the restrictive boxes we generally find ourselves in.

You may discover that you are able to open your mind to areas of thinking that have not been available to you in the past. Go there, explore new, unusual, rebellious, and even revolutionary ideas. Share those ideas and listen to what others are sharing as well.

SENSITIVITY AND EMPATHY

Thursday, March 15, 2018:

By the time you get going on Thursday, the Moon has entered passive, dreamy Pisces. Wednesday brought a relatively quiet day with a focus on unusual and unique thinking patterns, courtesy of the Aquarius Moon. Thursday brings a relatively quiet day as well but we have traded the unusual thinking for a deep sense of emotion, empathy, and compassion.

Earlier in the week, it became necessary to face reality in your financial situation and your love life. While the Moon is in Pisces, you will be less inclined to face reality, longing to engage in imagination, music, and mystical pursuits. Don’t lose track of reality but allow yourself to swim in sweet dreams a bit on Thursday.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:33 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 6:12 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.

 

 

THE DREAM HAS TEETH

Friday, March 16, 2018:

The desire to stay in dreamland will likely continue on Friday as the Moon moves through idealistic, poetic Pisces. However, with both Venus and Mercury now in Aries, the dream may have teeth and more determination behind it than you may realize. You want to reach out and grab what you long for and are less inclined to sit on the sidelines looking on wistfully.

With the Moon in Pisces (along with the Sun and Neptune), your emotions bring you to levels of deep sensitivity. Boundaries between yourself and others dissolve in clouds of empathy and compassion.

You will not, however, dissolve into a puddle of inaction as your sensitivity can easily engage anger or aggression if you see mistreatment of any kind. You will not only feel for the underdog but you will go to bat for him or her.

Powerful Aries energy will keep the dream from Pisces season alive.

PISCES NEW MOON – PLANT A SEED OF COMPASSION – THEN GO DANCING

Saturday, March 17, 2018:

Saturday begins with a Pisces New Moon at 9:12 AM EDT. Perform your New Moon ritual late on Saturday or, better yet, on Sunday.

At 12:40 PM EDT, Mars, the planet of action enters Capricorn, joining Saturn and Pluto in this serious, authoritative sign. Mars is considered to be in its exaltation in orderly, steadfast Capricorn, as the sign helps to contain and subdue the fire of Mars. This is a powerful, level-headed, and self-controlled position for the planet that rules anger, male sexuality, and war.

Even so, it may be a rough road as he meets with both Saturn and Pluto between now and when he enters Aquarius on May 15th (that is the same day that Uranus enters Taurus).

At 2:56 PM EDT, the Moon leaves any softness behind and enters Aries. The evening may feel a bit volatile… use that energy… make love or go out dancing; release any pent-up energies that may feel stressful in your body.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:12 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 2:56 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.

 

~ New Moon Ritual ~

Sunday 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 Pisces New Moon, set an intention regarding something intangible related to you imagination, compassion, spirituality, or inspiration.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Pisces, it will help you clarify where creativity or inspiration is ready to manifest. For example, if Pisces is in your 1st house, set an intention of expressing the most sensitive side of your personality. If Pisces is in your 4th house, set an intention to bring space for spiritual exploration into your home, set up an altar. With Pisces in the 7th, the intention may be to meet more mystical people or begin a spiritual path with your partner. In the 10th, you may see the need to be more sensitive to your coworkers or to bring something elusive 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 compassion, sensitivity, and empathy.

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 Pisces New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of empathy, mysticism, and poetic whimsy.

Share this ritual with your friends and loved ones.

 

 

 

THE URGENCY OF THE LIFE FORCE

Sunday, March 18, 2018:

Waking up on Sunday will feel very different from how you felt when you awoke on Saturday. Remember, that the Moon sets the emotional tone for the day as it moves through the Zodiac, spending approximately 2.5 days in each sign. The change from a Pisces Moon to an Aries Moon is fairly dramatic.

With the Moon in Aries, you will notice that your instinctual reactions speed up and you may feel edgy and restless. You have a powerful desire to take action. This is no lazy Sunday! Certainly, it is not the day to stay home resting or watching movies.

You may feel the need to follow a spark that thrusts you forward into an individual task or action. You may want to take off on your own for a bike ride or to ski down a mountainside. Engage your physical body in action. This is how you will feel the best.

There is a sense of urgency with this Moon sign, watch the temptation to be overly impulsive. You may feel invincible but please retain some amount of caution… and enjoy the feeling of being alive!

LOVE AND COMPASSION

Monday, October 2, 2017:

Monday morning begins with the Moon in humanitarian, quirky Aquarius forming a lovely supportive trine aspect to expansive Jupiter. The week begins with encouragement and a positive sense of forward motion.

At 10:27 AM EDT, the Moon enters sensitive, mystical, and sometimes confusing, Pisces. With the Moon in idealistic Pisces, the boundaries you normally hold between yourself and others are less distinct and more porous. You may feel dreamy, romantic, and possibly, more vulnerable.

It may be difficult to hold your attention on the practical realities of your work.

You may feel drawn to bodies of water, music, poetry, and the bar on the corner. Things that normally do not affect you may bring tears to your eyes as your level of compassion is highly increased. This is a time you want to help others and you are able to express more understanding and compassion than usual.

Your imagination is heightened as well and yet your sense of reality is unclear. Watch for your tendency to give in escapism; it is probably better to head to the yoga studio or meditation center than the corner bar!

Pay attention to your intuition and allow yourself time to rest, dreams, meditate and simply be with self-love and compassion

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:13 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 10:27 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.

 

 

LET IT FLOW

Tuesday, October 3, 2017:

The Moon remains in spiritually transcendent Pisces throughout Tuesday making contact with Neptune at 8:46 AM EDT. This could create difficulty getting out of bed and into the routines of your life. You may simply want to stay in bed, sleep, and daydream!

However, at 3:09 PM EDT, lovely Venus forms a supportive flowing trine aspect to powerful Pluto bringing a great deal of depth and intensity to whatever you are passionate about at this time. The cycle between Venus (at 16° Virgo) and Pluto (at 16° Capricorn) is a cycle of bringing love, beauty, and value to the deepest corners of your empowered soul. The cycle began in late November of 2016. Whatever began at that time is now flowing through you and into the world.

Are you creating a work of art, a great love affair, or something else that is connected to your most powerful values? Pay attention and you can feel the positive forward movement in your life. You are in the section of the river where the water flows quickly with no rapids, nothing standing in the way. The only word of caution: stay out of the way and let it flow!

 

 

STAND UP FOR YOURSELF

Wednesday, October 4, 2017:

Rouen, Rue de l’Épicerie by Camille Pissarro via Wiki Media

Wednesday begins with the Moon still in fanciful, elusive Pisces. At 9:25 AM EDT, she joins with Chiron at 25° Pisces, this suggests a time to work on a deep spiritual level with your deepest hidden wounds. Allow compassion for yourself and others to be fully exposed and available. Everyone you meet can use the kindness you are able to express.

By the time the Moon enters dynamic Aries at 4:40 PM EDT, you will probably be ready for this change in the emotional environment. Now, we leave behind the soft sensitivity of Pisces and are ready to stand up for yourselves in a direct and assertive manner. The next few days will offer you the opportunity to develop and show courage and internal strength.

Get out Wednesday evening for a run, a bike ride, or some other solitary endeavor that will utilize your physical strength and individuality. You very well may need time alone.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 3:18 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 4:40 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.

 

 

ARIES FULL MOON – TAKE A STAND

Thursday, October 5, 2017:

By Thursday, the sensitivity of the early part of the week has certainly been left behind. With the Moon in fiercely determined Aries, you probably feel more daring and courageous than usual. You want to do new things, you may be hot-tempered, and even a bit selfish.

However, that potential selfishness is countered by lovely Venus joining with forceful Mars (at 19° Virgo) at 12:53 PM EDT. This is the beginning of a cycle of a cooperative relationship. If you have challenges in your relationship, this is the time to plant a seed of understanding through thoughtful analysis.

When Mars and Venus come together, Venus calms the angry, assertive nature of Mars, even as Mars gives energy and strength to the civility and good manners of Venus. This is an aspect of passion and romance.

You will do well to be direct, open, and honest in your connections with others, particularly romantic partners. This aspect along with the Aries Moon supports your taking a clear stand for what you truly want.

 

 

SENSUALITY AND PATIENCE

Friday, October 6, 2017:

With the Moon in Aries forming a supportive trine aspect to Saturn at 7:27 AM EDT, you are ready to move with steadfast courage and assertiveness into the work day. You will do your best work if you are able to work on a personal project. You may be impatient with others, it is best if you can work on your own.

At 2:59 PM EDT, the Moon makes contact with eccentric Uranus. You may surprise others with some unexpected action or you may be surprised by someone or your own inner original thoughts. Be open to unanticipated epiphanies.

Once the Moon enters dependable, steadfast Taurus at 7:56 PM EDT, you can expect to settle, slow down and connect with others on an earthy, patient level. This will be a great evening to cook together with a partner, engage in sensual touch, massage, and deep kissing. 😉

The Aries Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 6:39 PM EDT until she enters Taurus at 7:56 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.

FOCUS ON SENSUAL DELIGHTS

Saturday, October 7, 2017:

Astrologically, Saturday is a very quiet day. The Moon continues through consistent, earthy Taurus, enabling you to experience life through your senses. Nothing needs to move quickly, you can take your time, you do not need to start anything new or get excited about anything. Your attention is likely to be on practical issues, you feel patient, steadfast, and dependable.

Your focus on Saturday is likely to be on indulging yourself. This is the day to plan for great food, listen to beautiful music, and find ways to awaken your senses. Get a massage, go dancing, and put beautiful flowers on the dining room table. Get outdoors in nature, go for a walk, or prepare the garden for next Spring’s planting.

Take self-care to new heights as you engage with all your senses – sight, sound, taste, touch, and scent. Bring sensuality to others through food and touch. Enjoy the sweetness and reverence available.

 

 

SELF CARE AND CLARITY

Sunday, October 8, 2017:

Sunday brings with it complications that Saturday didn’t have. Beautiful, lovely Venus forms a challenging square aspect to restrictive Saturn at 8:53 AM EDT. This is apt to be an uncomfortable aspect and you may notice yourself feeling melancholy and low.

Perhaps, you feel that you cannot get what you really desire or that you just aren’t good enough, pretty enough, clever enough… you know those messages, you have heard them before. Haven’t we all?!

The important thing is to pay attention to what your responsibilities really are and look at the reality of your situation. It may not feel great, but if you gain clarity on what is real and what is just negative messages, you will find that you have the inner resolve to do what needs to be done to stabilize these issues in your life. You really do know that you are smart enough, kind enough, clever enough… You just need to get on board and do the work that is required to put your best foot forward.

At 9:45 PM EDT, the Moon enters impatient Gemini. It may be difficult get to sleep as your mind could begin to race. Spend some quiet time with a hot cup of tea, rest and remember the importance of self-care.

The Taurus Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 9:45 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 9:45 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.

STABILITY & DREAMS

Monday, April 17, 2017:

Monday morning should find you feeling strong and capable as you begin the week. The powerful Aries Sun is invigorated and stabilized by a flowing trine aspect to steadfast Saturn at 8:43 AM EDT. Get up, get out, and start the day with a smile on your face and a kind word for those you meet!

In early December, a cycle began of creating something solid to support personal growth and stability. What began in your life at that time? In mid-March, you likely made an effort to support the ongoing growth of that cycle. Now, you should be able to see the full expression ahead. This expression is not here yet but you can clearly see whether the best decisions were made on this path.

Now is the time to make any necessary adjustments to prepare for the full revelation of the cycle which will be expressed or exposed in mid-June.

The Moon is in Capricorn throughout the day, quietly supporting your serious endeavors.

At 9:55 PM EDT, with a sextile to Neptune, the emotional Moon takes on a softer side. Settle in with music, poetry, or a movie that will engage your compassionate or inspirational nature. Sleep early and enjoy your dreams.

 

 

EFFORT & SELF-DISCIPLINE

Tuesday, April 18, 2017:

The Moon continues through responsible Capricorn on Tuesday. Try not to lose touch with Monday’s gift of stability and determination. Tuesday is a trickier day to manage. The Moon engages directly with power struggles & coercion (Pluto), anxiety (Uranus), and potentially, an overblown ego (Jupiter). Do not neglect your meditation on Tuesday!

Before you get nervous about this, please remember that these are Moon transits that pass quickly and will cause no difficulty unless you engage with them through fear or defensiveness. Allow any interpersonal difficulties or challenges to roll off your back. Don’t take the bait and don’t offer it either!

The Moon connects with Jupiter early in the morning, and with mighty Pluto at 9:59 AM EDT. The Moon also forms a challenging square aspect to Uranus at 8:32 PM EDT.

Mid-morning and late evening will likely be sensitive times. Do not allow yourself to be sucked into difficulties, and be sure you are not pulling others into hard situations as well.

This is a day to keep your nose to the grindstone, move a serious agenda forward, and offer kindness to others. They will be grateful and you will benefit. Utilize this as a serious day of effort and self-discipline.

 

 

TIME OF BLOSSOMING

Wednesday, April 19, 2017:

Vibrance of Calm by Nyna Greben via Wiki Commons

Wednesday is a very busy day. Before you are even out of bed, we have reached the Third Quarter Moon which encourages you to release what is no longer working in your life. Bring some items to Goodwill; clean out your closet, let go of something you thought was important that you see no longer serves you.

At 6:52 AM EDT, the Moon enters altruistic Aquarius encouraging you to open your mind to a new perspective as you move into the new season at hand.

Here in northern Vermont, Spring has finally landed with certainty. There is growth and blossoming everywhere! The life force of the Sun enters Taurus, the fixed sign of stabilization at 5:27 PM EDT!

Now, it is time to get that garden planted! Enjoy and observe with reverence the full expression of this season of increase! Over the coming month, there will be much to celebrate with the flowers blooming, the sound of peepers, and the baby lambs in the fields. Allow yourself to feel the opening of your heart into this season of growth.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:57 AM EDT until she enters Aquarius at 6:52 AM 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.

 

 

COURAGE & MISTAKES

Thursday, April 20, 2017:

In the earliest hours of Thursday morning, while you still slept, Mercury’s retrograde motion brings him back into contact with the steadfast Taurus Sun. This will assist in your adjustment between seasons and will help you to maintain practicality.

However, common sense may falter as Mercury proceeds backward into hot-blooded Aries at 1:37 PM EDT. You are likely to notice your thinking becoming decisive and forceful.

You are now able to locate the courage you need to take action on something you have struggled with over the past few weeks. What is it you need to say that has been difficult? Mercury will remain in Aries (until turning direct on May 3rd).

Pay attention to the difference between assertiveness and aggression, certainty and assault. Say what must be sad with kindness and compassion.

It often takes deep courage to admit to your mistakes and it is likely that is a necessary part of the conversation you must have. We all make mistakes, take responsibility and move forward with determination and love.

 

 

DEEP LONGING

Friday, April 21, 2017:

Friday is not a simple day! First, you will feel the shift as Mars, the planet of direct initiative and dynamic action, leaves Taurus where he has been for the past six weeks. Mars is thrilled to leave behind the slow, earthy energy of Taurus to enter Gemini where he has more freedom to engage in curiosity and enthusiastic action.

Mars will remain in Gemini until June 4, 2017.

The real challenge of Friday comes when exquisite Venus forms a challenging square aspect to reliable Saturn at 7:08 AM EDT. This energy will remain with you throughout the day and suggests a time of questioning your values, intimate relationships, beauty, and your financial stability.

Think back to the beginning of this cycle in late October 2016. Were you beginning a new intimacy or a new relationship with your finances at that time? Contemplate what effort you need to take now that will let yourself, others, and the Universe know how serious you are in the development of your deepest longings.

This transit often leaves us feeling a bit melancholy and sad. Allow yourself to rest and understand that going inward is part of what is necessary.

At 3:43 PM EDT, the Moon enters Pisces bringing you to a sensitive, dreamy Friday evening. If you attempt to go to a party or other social event, you may have a disappointing evening. Stay home, spend time alone or with intimate loved ones. Rest.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 2:23 PM EDT until she enters Pisces at 3:43 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.

DREAMY  AND IMPRESSIONABLE

Saturday, April 22, 2017:

Saturday brings us to a very simple day. If you can avoid having expectations of yourself and others, this can be a lovely day.

The impressionable, dreamy Pisces Moon lazily drifts through the day. The only aspect throughout the day is when the Moon connects with mystical Neptune at 3:57 PM EDT.

You may choose to fall asleep on the couch and wonder where the day went when you awaken hours later; you may want nothing more than to dream or create inspired works of art. Deepen your meditation practice or simply release your solid hold on reality and allow yourself to dream.

Be cautious with alcohol or other substances as you may be more sensitive to them than normal. Enjoy this time of sensitivity and rest.

 

 

CONTINUED SENSITIVITY

Sunday, April 23, 2017:

Sunday continues with much the same illusive sensitivity as Saturday. If you were able to rest on Saturday, make contact with others in a gentle compassionate manner today. Again, do not have high expectations; simply rest in the company of friends or loved ones.

If you were not able to rest on Saturday, focus on self-care, rest, and sensitive inspiration.

At 8:33 PM EDT, the Moon leaves placid Pisces behind and enters courageous Aries with dynamic determination. After such a quiet weekend, it may be hard to sleep as the impulsive, and sometimes combative, Aries Moon wakes you from your slumber.

You will feel ready to head into a new week with gusto when Monday morning comes.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:35 PM EDT until she enters Aries at 8:33 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.

* 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*.

MOVING FORWARD WITH COMFORT AND COURAGE

Monday, April 3, 2017:

This morning, you would rather stay home and avoid work altogether. With the receptive Moon in domestic Cancer, your home and issues of tenderness and love are the concerns you would like to occupy your day.

However, most of us will need to head to work. Early in the day, as the Moon forms an easy trine aspect to Neptune (12:26 PM EDT), it may seem difficult to get your feet firmly on the ground.

Mid-afternoon (2:40 PM EDT), the forceful Aries Sun and protective Cancer Moon form a challenging square aspect bringing us to the First Quarter phase of the Moon. If you think about Cancer’s desire to cuddle with a loved one in a warm nest and Aries’ desire to take a solitary and courageous mountain bike ride, you will understand the challenge between these two energies. Think back to the seed you planted at the New Moon last week. Find a way to use these two conflicting energies to move that process forward.

As soon as your workday is complete, head home, cook a meal for yourself or your family and settle in to any domestic comfort you choose to create.

 

 

ANXIETY TURNS TO PLAY

Tuesday, April 4, 2017:

When you awake on Tuesday morning, your challenging dreams may linger, leaving you with an unsettling sense of anxiety. If you remember those dreams, look for the message within and release any discomfort. The sensitive Cancer Moon forms challenging aspects to excessive Jupiter, subversive Pluto, and unsettling Uranus between late Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Allow yourself to explore unusual patterns. Don’t try to stick with all that is expected of you. Perhaps, it is time to explore a new way of viewing the world. Make contact with folks who will stretch or challenge your viewpoints. Stop assuming your worldview is the only one worthy of airtime.

At 4:46 PM EDT, the tender Cancer Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to lovely Venus allowing a loving connection. Take a break from your work and head outside even for a moment; look at the sky and experience expansive beauty.

At 6:13 PM EDT, the Moon enters exuberant Leo, opening the evening for playful fun, the pleasure of creativity.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:46 PM EDT until she enters Leo at 6:13 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 a significant future impact.

WIND AT YOUR BACK

Wednesday, April 5, 2017:

The most significant aspect on Wednesday happens at the very final moments of the day. Just at midnight, courageous Mars forms a flowing trine aspect to empowered Pluto. When these two mighty planets work together in a harmonious configuration, you can expect great determination and strength of your actions. You are likely to feel highly motivated to move heaven and earth toward the fulfillment of whatever significant plan or project you have embarked upon.

The cycle between Mars and Pluto (a two year cycle) began in August 2016. What did you plunge into at that time that you knew would take great resolve and willpower? Whatever began at that time has reached a point in its growth where the wind is at your back and progress is steady inherently easy. The full expression of this cycle will come in late May. Plan for it!

The Moon and continues through playful Leo encouraging you to spend time with creative pleasures. If you have children in your life, spend time with them; engage on their level of play. Enjoy

 

 

SOUL SEARCHING AND PARADOX

Thursday, April 6, 2017:

On Thursday, Saturn turns retrograde, remaining thus until August 25th. Over the course of this 4 ½ months, it is important to do some soul-searching regarding any long-term commitments that you are considering. This could be around issues of relationship, business, relocation, or your career. If you know the house Saturn is moving through in your chart during this retrograde, that is the most likely area on which to focus your contemplation.

The lovely Leo Moon forms a Grand Trine aspect to exciting Uranus and stable Saturn throughout the afternoon. You should experience an easy sense of satisfaction and excitement simultaneously. You may feel very anchored and reliable even as you feel exhilarant and animated. Hold this paradox with pleasure as for now, both energies hold space together in friendship.

The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 8:17 PM EDT until she enters Virgo 20 minutes after midnight. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.

 

 

BALANCE EXPANSION AND REALITY

Friday, April 7, 2017:

When you wake up on Friday morning, the Moon will have entered practical Virgo. You can go ahead and put away your toys from the last few Leo Moon days.

The efficiency and precision of Virgo is challenged as the Sun opposes optimistic Jupiter at 5:38 PM EDT. This energy definitely flies in the face of practical Virgo as you are pushed to excess, extravagance, and overindulgence.

The cycle between the Sun and Jupiter began in late September. In looking back at that time, consider what you started that was of an expansive nature. What big idea or plan did you begin in September? Now, at the planets’ opposition, look back and see how far you have come with that idea or that plan and then make any adjustments necessary to bring it into its fullest power. Pay attention to the places where you can give or receive big ideas or large pleasures.

It is probably best to leave your credit cards at home as it would be so easy to overspend. Watch where your eyes may be bigger than your stomach…. or your dream has gotten unrealistic. We must always remember the delicate balance between expansion and reality.

CHECK YOURSELF

Saturday, April 8, 2017:

Saturday starts out easily enough. You will probably feel productive and powerful due to a lovely Earth Grand Trine. However, the afternoon brings difficult challenges.

When Venus squares Saturn at 4:28 PM EDT, there may be issues that you can not ignore in your love life and relationships or you may need to face reality (and fear) concerning your finances. Face reality head-on; that does not mean to process things extensively with a partner.

Saturday’s transits will be better managed as an internal private job. Understand the reality of your situation and allowed it to be exactly as it is. Nothing must be resolved in this moment.

At 8:49 PM EDT, when the Sun squares destructive Pluto, you will be happy if you did not engage in any arguments. This challenging aspect insists that you face the truth of your deeper motivations and get clear on what is uncomfortable in your attempts to gain power over others. Be aware of your motivations and face yourself honestly.

If you are ready, bring your understanding of yourself to the table… speak only of your own path, don’t make any statement or assumption of what someone else is bringing to the table.

 

 

A SIMPLE PATH TO WORKING WITH MERCURY RETROGRADE

Sunday, April 9, 2017:

On Sunday morning, the Moon enters cooperative, charming Libra at 8:35 AM EDT. You are ready to re-establish peace and grace into your home and beyond. This is a great morning to go out for brunch with loved ones and friends. You are ready to deepen your connections as you learn the difference between codependency and interdependence. Give this some thought on Sunday morning.

The big news, however, is that at 7:14 PM EDT, Mercury turns retrograde at 4° Taurus. Spend time today preparing for the upcoming three weeks. Mercury will turn direct once again on May 3rd. If you have followed my writing over the years, you are familiar with the best ways to work with Mercury retrograde. Here is your reminder:

4 Simple Steps to Managing Mercury Retrograde!

  1. Don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned!
  2. Get a notebook and a pen. Make a list of everything that you have begun but NOT completed in the past few months.
  3. Get to work! Accomplish what is on this list! Only what is on this list!
  4. Don’t be tempted to start new projects, begin new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs!

Mercury retrograde brings us the gift of time to wrap up loose ends!

The Virgo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:22 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 8:35 AM 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 significant future impact.
