Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather:

October 14, 2019, through October 20, 2019

There is still space available at the retreat for Friday during the day and one room available for the whole weekend. Join us, you will be very glad you did!
Some comments from last year’s participants:
It was a magical time of wonderful camaraderie with a group of women I’d never met before. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!!!”
I am grateful to have been a part of this wonderful event! Thank you for letting me join. It was exactly what I needed.”
Really loved the environment of the space and the calm energy of the speakers and participants. I felt that the information presented was extremely valuable for beginners, like myself, and experienced practitioners alike. I loved the variety between session subjects and the ability to touch on a number of important overarching astrological techniques within each of them.”
It was remarkable how I was able to communicate with people. I have had issues with feeling awkward and not being good at small talk in the past. It was amazing to meet others who talk in the language of astrology and to be received so warmly.”

Please keep in mind that your personal transits can override these more universal ones. A personal consultation offers deep understanding.

Once you get through today, the rest of the week will be smooth sailing. In the earliest hours of the morning, Mercury forms a sweet sextile to Saturn. This transit allows you to speak your mind readily throughout the day.
But, the hot-under-the-collar Aries Moon fans the flames of a challenging square aspect between the Sun and Pluto. You may not want to risk speaking your mind. The undercurrent of power dynamics makes you question the safety of speaking your mind.
You feel that you are under the thumb of an institution, a family, a job, or a person. Double-check yourself that you are not holding someone under yours. Look into your own reflection. Consider the power dynamics that are at play in every direction.
At 12:24 PM, the heat of the Aries Moon cools down as the Moon enters stable, comfort-seeking Taurus. Even so, the comfort that Taurus seeks is not easy to find as new information rattles you at bedtime.
The Aries Moon is void-of-course until she enters Taurus at 12:24 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.

Today’s Taurus Moon encourages you to release the difficulties of yesterday as you focus on calm and stable productivity. Pay attention to the sensual components of your life. Pamper yourself with good food, extra sleep, a massage, and love-making. Tidy up your desk, put flowers in your sightline, and make a cup of tea.
At 6:44 PM EDT, Mercury trine Neptune increases your imagination, intuition, and non-verbal sensitivities. Your interest in vibrational energies and spirituality is keen. This transit makes it easier than usual to express what is intangible in your mind and heart. It may be challenging to find words to describe experiences, but the essence is transmitted nonetheless. This evening is made for guided meditations or simply daydreaming as your mind is susceptible and open to Flow.


Wednesday, October 16, 2019

The Taurus Moon begins today with a powerful trine aspect to Pluto, the planet of empowerment. This dynamic aspect highlights the stamina of the Taurus Moon.
The day’s Moon-sign is a dominant contributing factor to the emotional atmosphere of the day.  How we feel is directly related to the sign through which the Moon is moving.
When the Moon is in Taurus, we talk about sensuality, the love of music, touch, beauty, and good food. Given the association with such loveliness, it is easy to miss the strength and determination of this commanding sign. Taurus is an Earth Sign, offering practicality and stability. It is also a Fixed sign, suggesting tenacity and endurance. Don’t underestimate the hearty backbone required to hold the beauty and sweetness of Taurus.
At 10:30 PM EDT, the Moon enters Gemini. If you start a conversation before bed, you may not get to sleep as early as you anticipated. Your mind and your desire to communicate may keep you up well into the night. Not to worry, you will have a few days to continue this conversation. Jot down a few notes so as not to forget what needs to be said and get some sleep.
The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 4:38 AM EDT until she enters Gemini at 10:30 PM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.


Thursday, October 17, 2019

The steadfast determination of yesterday’s Taurus Moon has given way to the quick thinking of today’s Gemini Moon. You may wake up this morning with a great deal to think about. Your thoughts are fast-moving, and your job is to keep up with all of them. You have things to say, ideas to develop, friends to meet up with, questions to ask, and conversations to have. Your mind is wide awake, and your curiosity is high.
Remember that you can learn much more when you listen than when you speak. Try speaking just enough to encourage others to have their say and then sit back and listen. Before bed, make a list of what you learned with your mouth shut, your ears listening, and your mind curious and engaged.

In the years before I was a working astrologer, my jobs involved engaging with many people every day. I always paid attention to the sign the Moon was in, understanding its impact on the workplace.
I remember Fridays when the Moon was in Gemini because those were fun days. Everyone had ideas to share and were anxious to talk about the weekend ahead and the plans they had. It was difficult for folks to settle down and pay attention to the work at hand. As fun as those Fridays were for the employees, they were equally challenging for the employers who were responsible for productivity.
Notice how this dynamic plays out in your workplace today. Because the Moon speaks to the atmosphere of the day, you can expect lots of conversation, sharing of ideas, and curiosity.
Gemini is an Air sign, focusing attention on the intellect. It is also a mutable sign, suggesting the ability to go with the flow and adapt easily. Expect a lot of casual talk and the ability for those around you to change their minds and ideas and direction at the drop of a hat.
The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 10:14 PM EDT until she enters Cancer early Saturday morning. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.


Saturday, October 19, 2019

Prepare for a pleasant, sensitive, powerful, yet exciting day. At 6:43 AM EDT, the Moon enters domestic, sometimes moody Cancer. The best way to spend this morning is to enjoy comfort food with folks who support your deep sensitivities.
You may feel self-protective as you struggle to understand your deep vulnerabilities. You see where others need protection and deep caring as well. It is easy to offer kindness and maternal love.
At 3:46 PM EDT, the Moon forms a lovely sextile to Uranus. This suggests an opportunity to discover an exciting outlet for those vulnerabilities or at least a new perception of them. You can relax into more objectivity.
At 6:20 PM EDT Mercury sextile Pluto gifts you with depth and intensity in your thinking and conversations. Profound and powerful ideas and thoughts find a way to you. You will want to engage in probing study or dig deeply into your own mind. This is a time when you can uncover secrets or understand deep levels of study. Keep your eyes open for new ways of viewing old previously stuck issues and problems. What has been mentally stuck can become clear.
The Gemini Moon is void-of-course until she enters Cancer at 6:43 AM EDT. This condition suggests that what occurs during this time will not have a significant impact.


Sunday, October 20, 2019

This may be a moody day with the Cancer Moon making connections with 6 of 9 planets. If you are uncomfortable with how you feel, relax as it will quickly change.
Your moodiness is balanced with a sextile between Venus, the planet of love and Saturn, the planet of commitment and stabilization.
You may find yourself developing a deep love and care toward folks in your environment. You desire serious long-term committed connections that are mutual and lasting. You are practical and your common sense is accentuated in how you approach others. Look for mutual understanding in the development of long term plans and partnerships.
Today is also great for serious creative projects and the development of financial plans that will support your future.

* 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.
