A note from a client:

Laurie is very knowledgeable and professional in her craft of reading charts. I was referred to her a couple of years ago and decided to give my son a reading for his 15th birthday. He was very impressed and said he wanted to do it again. Recently, I visited Laurie for a consultation for myself… and what a pleasure! I felt genuine validation for things I had already been contemplating or starting, but also felt a deeper understanding about my own uniqueness as a human and how it fits into family, relationships, my business, and the world. It has inspired me to embrace new changes and to let go of ‘energy clutter’. Having told my son about the reading, he has already asked for an update for his upcoming birthday. Thank you, Laurie, what a wonderful service! ~ RC – Burlington, Vermont

Monday, July 22, 2019:

Monday morning begins with the Moon moving into the hard-hitting fire sign of Aries at 6:03 AM EDT. Wake up! When the Moon is in Aries we tend to have more determination and courage than usual. Grab the day by the scruff of the neck and make her your own.

By the time the day comes to a close, the Sun itself will have joined Mars in LEO. The Sun enters Leo at 10:50 PM EDT.

On Saturday Venus will join the gathering bringing us into Leo Season. It is no accident or coincidence that most of us want to take vacations between late July and late August. It is hard to focus on work when the energies of the planets are asking us to PLAY. Leo loves to shine its light, to bring warmth and light to banish all shadows.

Don’t misunderstand, I am NOT saying that all people with the Sun Sign of Leo are bright and warm and playful! There is a downside to each sign. That hot bright sun can overwhelm us and burn us in the process. A mature Leo will draw you in with her warmth; an immature Leo will repel you with her arrogance. Also, keep in mind that we all have each sign someplace in our charts. The area of your chart that holds Leo is the area of your life where you can be truest to your own center. It is where you want to play. It is also the area of your chart that is being lit up over the next month. If you don’t have a vacation scheduled, at least set aside a long weekend, get to the beach, find a fun festival to attend, go dancing, and play with abandon!


The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 4:35 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 6:03 AM EDT. This suggests that whatever occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.


Tuesday, July 23, 2019:

With the Moon in Aries, you are drawn to stress like a moth to a flame. Aries pushes us to take action and respond with courage. Why would you do that if there was no stress to shove against? The morning supports you to directly face issues that you usually shy away from. As you push the doors open. At 2:31 PM EDT the Moon squares Saturn. If you have pushed too hard or maintained the pressure for too long that door may now slam hard in your face. The afternoon is best spent working alone, taking action on a personal challenge. Allow your restlessness to push you to quickly clean up an old mess. There is an old mess, isn’t there? If you feel edgy and restless do something physical to let off steam, go for a run, get to the gym. Martial arts or drumming are great ways to move this energy through you

Do you want to know enough about your chart to understand where in your life the New or Full Moon is impacting you? Do you want to know how your life is impacted when Mercury enters Cancer (on Friday, July 19th) or when Venus enters Leo (July 27th)? What area of your chart/life is LIT UP when the Sun goes into the next sign? I will teach you to follow these patterns and makes sense of them! Join Astrolore’s Patreon Group! Information Here


Wednesday, July 24, 2019:

The Moon continues through Aries this morning keeping the emotional tone of the day fast, impulsive, and immature. The inclination for self-promotion can backfire early in the day. Watch your words and associations which can ricochet back on you as well. When the Moon moves into Taurus at 5:43 PM EDT everything shifts. Calm yourself and prepare for an important evening conversation. At 8:26 PM EDT Mercury (Rx) joins with Venus at 26 degrees Cancer. You may need to find words to apologize or make amends to a family member or loved one. Take the opportunity to clean up a misunderstanding. On the heels of that conversation, or even in the midst of it, we come to the Last Quarter Phase of the Moon. Both the First and Last Quarter Moon are points of crisis and opportunities. You have a choice to make now. Take the future into your hands. Make a decision that will lead you in the direction of loyalty and commitment. Your actions are important now and will turn you toward or away from your highest expression. Maintain contact with the earth and your human body and choose well.


The Aries Moon is void-of-course from 10:48 AM EDT until she enters Taurus at 5:43 PM EDT. This suggests that whatever occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.


Thursday, July 25, 2019:

Kick up your heels, play, dance, go on a road trip, and expand your horizons. Mars, the planet of action forms a lovely flowing Trine aspect to expansive, bigger than life Jupiter. Too bad we can’t all be on vacation today. The two-year cycle between Mars and Jupiter began in January 2018 and is a cycle of powerful increase. Any seeds of understanding and advancement that you planted at that time are in a phase of proliferation now. If you have significant planets or points near 15° of any Fire Sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) watch as something significant is on the rise today. Anything you take action on now will very likely be successful. Read that statement again and think about what your plans are for the day. Take decisive action with courage, good intentions, and belief in yourself. Opportunities for material growth, personal growth, or spiritual growth will present themselves. Go ahead and allow the flow of what desire. The Moon remains in Taurus throughout this auspicious day, keeping you focused on pleasure. Hold love, pleasure, and stability within your heart. Show love and kindness in all interactions. Peace out.


Friday, July 26, 2019:

As the Moon continues through Taurus you desire and need comfort and security above all else. This should be a sweet day as long as you remove yourself from any chaos or drama. Better yet, do what you can to bring stability to those who are stuck in difficult emotions. This is a day to slow down, resist change, and experience each of your powerful senses. Get outdoors, leave the headphones at home, listen to the birds and the trees sing. They have much to teach us if we listen. Spend time with loved ones. Enjoy good food, music, cuddling, lovemaking, and a massage. Cook for or with those you love. Family loyalty is on display and helps to ground and stabilize you in the face of the current challenges of living in our culture. Keep your home a place of calm. Close the door on the anxiety of the outside world. You and your family need love, calm, and stability.


Saturday, July 27, 2019:

This will be a good weekend for simple socializing and lighthearted fun and chatter. The Moon entered Gemini in the wee hours of the morning. Gemini moves quickly, as she gathers and shares information with everyone available. At 9:53 PM Venus follows the Sun into expressive dramatic Leo. What a great night it will be to go dancing, performing or watching the performances of others. Venus will remain in Leo until August 21. These are the weeks to shine your inner light and your values most brightly. While Venus is in Leo you want to luxuriate in abundance, beauty, and love. This is a time to get out and show yourself in your most sparkly expression. Modesty and refinement will be with us soon enough. Shine a spotlight on the very best part of yourself and let yourself SHINE. Allow yourself to be SEEN even as you encourage others to show their best side, and applaud them when they do!


The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 12:28 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 2:29 AM EDT. This suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.


Sunday, July 28, 2019:

The Moon continues its path through Gemini encouraging communication, curiosity, and the gathering of information. This is a great day to listen and tell stories. You will encounter the lighthearted, friendly, talkative side of those you meet. Gather with friends for lunch, a festival in the park, or a visit to a museum. Find out what is happening in the lives of your friends. This is the day to catch up! Remember with Mercury still retrograde make sure to take any missteps in stride. Gemini Moon wants us to engage socially. We need others to bring versatility and diversity to our lives and our thinking. Conversations may move quickly with unusual wit. Don’t forget to listen as well as speak. Because others are speaking more freely than usual, you may be surprised at what you learn.


* 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.

A basic factor in natal astrology is the pattern made between the planets. Each planet represents a fundamental mode of activity: that is, an organic function, psychological as well as biological. The aspects between the planets describe the manner in which they interact, reinforcing or weakening each other, revealing a smooth type of cooperation between functional activities or indicating organic, psychosomatic tensions. The general distribution of the planets within the zodiac — whether, for instance, they are clustered within a small section of the zodiac or spread out more or less evenly through the sky — tells us a great deal about the meaning of this celestial word which constitutes the real name of the individual person.” ~Dane Rudhyar
