THE WINDS OF CHANGE

I have alluded to upcoming changes for Astrolore. If you get this weekly blog in your email, it will continue to be delivered each week.

If you often see the daily posts on Facebook or Instagram, you can expect that to stop very soon. Videos and other writings will continue on those platforms but the daily posts will no longer be posted to FB or Instagram.

For those who want the daily posts, you receive the entire week of posts here each Sunday morning!

Please share this email with friends and loved ones. Who do you know who would appreciate Astrolore’s perspective on the Grand Parade we are all a part of?

If you would like to support Astrolore’s work, please join us on Patreon. As a patron, you pay $5 per month. In exchange, you will feel good about supporting Astrolore as well as receiving all videos and written content in one place. You will receive a copy of your natal chart in the whole sign house system to use with worksheets provided for each New Moon and Sun ingress.

Astrolore’s content on Patreon will be shifting from mundane astrology toward natal astrology. My desire is to help you understand yourself more deeply and understand how time impacts and changes you.

INTEGRITY MUST BE YOUR GUIDING LIGHT

Monday, April 18, 2022

The Moon starts the week in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio. Emotions are deep and yet our preference is to go underground and keep those emotions private. There is much activity today apart from what the Moon is doing. All this activity makes it difficult for Scorpio to retain its mystery. You may be pushed against a wall, having to reveal something very personal which may leave you feeling very vulnerable. Learning to welcome vulnerability is an important skill to develop.

Anxiety and intensity go hand in hand today. In the wee hours of the morning, Mercury joins with Uranus at 13° of Taurus, pay attention if you have planets at the middle degrees of any fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius). This suggests the beginning of a new conversation. With the Moon in Scorpio, you may prefer to avoid what needs to be said, but the information is likely to come out regardless. Venus sextiles Uranus in the early hours as well, suggesting the possibly unintended conversation opens opportunities to express powerful values.

At 11:14 AM, the most powerful aspect of the week forms. This is the square between the Sun and Pluto. The cycle between the Sun and Pluto is an important one. This is an annual cycle of empowerment. Remember that Pluto destroys whatever is in the way of necessary transformation. This cycle began on January 16, 2022. Whatever began at that time, now requires action to move forward to empowerment. If you have planets in the very late degrees of Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), this will feel very personal. You will have decisions to make about the road ahead. Integrity must be your guiding light.

At 10:17 PM Eastern time the Moon moves into Sagittarius which will lighten our emotions over the coming days.

SUN ENTERS TAURUS SUPPORTING REVERENCE & SENSUAL PLEASURES

Tuesday, April 19, 2022

Last night the Moon left the deep waters of Scorpio to enter the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius. The deep intensity of emotions shifts to a more optimistic state of emotion. Sagittarius is the mutable Fire sign and looks for inspiration in adaptability. We are more comfortable with allowing change and a shift in direction at this time. Kick things up a notch and freely share your visions and insights.

At 10:24 PM Eastern, the Sun enters Taurus, this begins Taurus Season. Mercury and Uranus are already in Taurus ready to welcome the warmth and heat of the Sun.

When we think of Taurus, the image of the Bull comes to mind. Taurus is not the raging bull, we see in images of bullfights, but the Bull who knows it can rest in its considerable power.

Ferdinand the Bull is the perfect symbol of Taurus. Taurus knows its power and strength and has no need to engage it when it is not necessary. Taurus is far more interested in sitting under the tree smelling the spring flowers. This is the fixed earth sign ruled by Venus. Here we see the sensual side of Venus, the side that connects us to reverence, the earth, sensuality, and tangible resources.

Taurus Season is the Fixed part of Spring. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we encounter the natural world coming alive. Flowers bloom, farm and woodland creatures give birth, the sun warms the earth, and our bodies come alive with pleasure.

Taurus is a very physical sign that can be as immovable as the earth itself. Taurus asks that we slow down and very deliberately set all hurry aside. One foot in front of the other, one step at a time. Who wins the race, the tortoise or the hare?

THE MEANING OF LIFE: A SAGITTARIUS CONCERN

Wednesday, April 20, 2022

The Moon’s movement through Sagittarius provides us with a sense of humor and a desire for adventure.

We may feel restless as we contemplate where to find answers to the big life questions of meaning, implications, and significance. The meaning of life is a Sagittarius concern. The good news is that we are likely to feel more philosophically optimistic under this influence as well.

When the Moon is in Sagittarius we are likely to focus on higher goals of travel, study, and philosophical growth. We seek to expand optimism and adaptability in our lives. Humor and an expansive vision help us to see the silver lining in even the most challenging situations.

At 11:54 PM Eastern, the Moon enters Capricorn pushing you toward more practical considerations over the coming days. The Moon will remain in this serious sign until Saturday morning.

THE SOLITARY MOUNTAIN GOAT

Thursday, April 21, 2022

The Moon entered Capricorn late last night bringing solitary ambitions and serious concerns to the table. As the Moon passes through Capricorn the prevailing mood is cautious, determined, and prudent.

Capricorn is the cardinal earth sign, ruled by Saturn and represented by the solitary mountain goat. This is a sensible hard-working sign that keeps us focused on personal ambition, mature efforts, and hard work.

While the Moon is in Capricorn we are not interested in playfulness or fun and will do whatever is necessary to avoid drama or emotional outbursts. Our focus is on personal singular accomplishment, keeping to the point, and making serious progress. Business aspirations may call to you. It is time to get to work and stop procrastinating. This is not a time for group projects, but a time for solitary efforts.

TURN AWAY FROM PROCRASTINATION

Friday, April 22, 2022

The Moon continues through Capricorn for most of the day. Our emotional focus remains on practical issues, goals, and necessary plans. With the Moon in this Cardinal Earth sign, we are aware of the reality of personal responsibility. Your emotions direct you toward a practical future.

It is easy to turn the dial down on your emotions to keep them from getting in the way of the work that needs to get done. Sentimentality has no place in the issues of today.

Take advantage of today’s Capricorn Moon to take care of issues in your business that perhaps you have been procrastinating on. Spend time early in the day considering the accomplishments necessary in order to build a stable and secure future. You can get a good start on accomplishing those things today, move in that direction.

COOL EMOTIONS AND UPCOMING CHANGE

Saturday, April 23, 2022

In the wee hours of the morning, the Moon leaves Capricorn and enters Aquarius. With the Moon in this Fixed Air sign, all emotions are filtered through the intellect. Your mood is likely to be informed by ideas, exciting or anxiety-filled flashes of thoughts and ideas. This is a day to spend in humanitarian-based discussions with friends and cohorts.

When the Moon is in Aquarius we have the gift of distance from our emotions. We won’t get swallowed up with moodiness or allow the emotions of others to control our actions. We have distance enough from our emotions to see what is important.

At 7:56 AM Eastern, the Moon squares the Sun bringing us to the Last Quarter phase of the Moon. At this time you have a clear sense that something is about to change, and a new cycle is approaching. We have the option to go with the change or to fight against it. Remember that your understanding of yourself and life itself is constantly undergoing change. With the two forces of the Sun and Moon in conflict, the tension pushes us to release something in order for future growth to occur. We may feel blocked or thwarted as we begin to feel a shift coming into focus. Things can not stay the same as the cycle wanes toward next week’s New Moon.

CLEAR BOUNDARIES

Sunday, April 24, 2022

The Moon continues through the cool friendly sign of Aquarius as the week comes to an end. Spend time with people who expand your mind, vision, and perspective. Be ready to think and talk about humanitarian issues. Consider how to contribute to the vision of a better world for all sentient life on planet earth.

At 9:49 AM Eastern, Mercury forms a square aspect to Saturn. This pushes us to speak up on behalf of reality as we see it. We may be backed into a corner until we are ready to speak up about clear boundaries that must be in place for our continued engagement. Get clear about a change you must make in the rules between yourself and others or perhaps a change within your own thinking. 

At 6:37 PM Eastern, Mercury forms a sextile aspect to Neptune. This brings an opportunity to deliver necessary communication in a way that others will be receptive to.

In these weekly reports, I explore 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 give rise to fleeting moods. 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.
