If you suddenly find yourself with time to delve into your astrology studies, contact me. I would love to talk with you about your path forward.
If you are interested in applying for Astrolore’s mentorship program, let me know and I’ll send information and an application.
Astrolore’s mentorship program is separate from Astrolore’s teaching program. The teaching program will lead you through the building blocks of the language of astrology. The mentorship program is for folks who know the basic language of astrology and are ready to develop their next steps forward into a deep understanding of how to work with this precious gift of astrology.

There are a few specific things I am researching in the charts I am working with these days. Please contact me if:

  • If you are in a LAT (Living Apart Together) relationship, and
    • you are now unable to see each other at all
    • you suddenly find yourselves sheltering in place together

I will need you and your partner’s birth information. I will send a questionnaire and may want to talk more in-depth with some of you.


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

HUMILITY IN TIMES OF CHANGE – Monday, April 6, 2020

Remember that the Moon changes signs every 2 to 2 ½ days. As she transits through the zodiac your emotions follow her lead. The Sign the Moon is in on any given day suggests the emotional environment we live in.

This week begins with the Moon in Virgo, as we seek to develop humility. In the current circumstances of the human race, humility is an important quality to develop.

True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.” ~ CS Lewis

Your attention is on the practical realities of your situation. You must pay meticulous attention to the requirements of our times. If you are not already wearing a mask outside your home, today is likely the day you see the importance of taking that crucial step.

On YouTube, you can find a simple mask design without the need for a sewing machine or even a needle and thread.

At 5:17 PM EDT, the Moon enters Libra, ushering in an evening when you will want to focus your attention on those you are in a relationship with. Call your friends and loved ones, they will be happy to hear from you. Your job is to give love and care to others as you wish to receive it yourself.

***The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 9:29 AM EDT until she enters Libra at 5:17 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


Today’s Libra Full Moon is a powerful one. In the time of a global pandemic, we would expect nothing less. The Full Moon itself occurs at 10:35 PM EDT.

Full Moons represent an illumination of something that began at the New Moon two weeks ago. The Aries New Moon occurred on March 24. Did you do your New Moon ritual of planting a seed at the new moon? What do you see in the development of that seed over the past two weeks?

As we approach the Full Moon there is a dynamic square aspect formed between Mars (drive) and Uranus (individuality) at 2:50 PM EDT. This suggests a revolutionary clash between powerful forces, a dynamic time of action and revolutionary challenge. If you have planets close to 5degrees Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) this will be very personal to you. Otherwise, you will see it in the news and on the street.

Mercury sextiles both Pluto and Jupiter today as well. This suggests the importance of uplifting one another with our vision and understanding of HOPE in these dark times. Take this opportunity seriously, as it will serve you well in the long term.

In considering the larger cycle between Mars and Uranus think about what began at the start of the cycle in February 2017. This is the closing square between them, suggesting that what began at that time must now be changed, dismantled, released, or unraveled.

For Astrolore’s Patreon community Jennie and I are making videos for each New and Full Moon. I’m going to attach our Libra Full Moon video here. If you are interested in all the videos we are creating for that group, check out Astrolore’s Patreon page.

In this global pandemic, we are learning what it means to be human. Suddenly we have no choice but to open our eyes to the cracks that have always been there, the vulnerability of living in a real, mortal human body. There is so much to learn. Embrace this life lesson. Astrology supports deep life lessons and understanding. Reach out for a consultation in these trying times. 

BEAUTY IN THE DARK – Wednesday, April 8, 2020
With the Moon in Capricorn forming hard aspects to Pluto and Jupiter, you are likely feeling the harder edges of living in these difficult times.

Do not try to distract yourself from what is hard. Cultivate integrity even as you face the stark reality of the situation we all find ourselves in.

It may not be easy to keep your spirits up today. Keep in mind the difference between being positive and having Hope. Trying to stay positive in the reality of our circumstances has denial written all over it. Cultivating Hope acknowledges the challenge we face while seeing the possibilities that lay beyond understanding.

When the Moon enters Scorpio at 4:17 PM EDT, spend time on your own looking clearly at the intensity within your own heart. Explore the darkness, go deep. Remember that the Pheonix rises from the ashes only after going fully to the very depth of darkness. How would we ever see the stars without darkness? There is beauty in the darkest night.

***The Libra Moon is void-of-course from 8:50 AM EDT until she enters Scorpio at 4:17 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

MAGIC OCCURS IN THE DARK – Thursday, April 9, 2020
With the Moon passing through Scorpio today, explore the deepest parts of your life and circumstances. True transformation requires destruction and regeneration. This holds true for individuals, governments, cultures, and all structures.

Scorpio is a Fixed Water sign. Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) have a powerful concentration of focus. Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are sensitive, deep, and emotional.

Scorpio has great depth and focuses its powerful attention on the hidden emotions that you may normally prefer to avoid. It is unwise to avoid reality in the midst of a global pandemic.

With the Moon is in Scorpio, your feelings enter profound depths. Delve into your hidden emotional motivations with honest clarity.

It is important that you work with the deep emotions bubbling to the surface. Beneath that surface, there are transformations and powerful healing occurring.

For now, rest and allow magic to occur in the dark. Open your heart to deep passion, determination, and powerful transformative change.

FIND BEAUTY IN YOUR WORLDFriday, April 10, 2020

The Moon remains in Scorpio throughout the bulk of the day. Yesterday the Scorpio Moon insisted on going very deep in uneasy places. It very likely wasn’t an easy day. Today, those depths are easier to manage as the Moon engages in pleasant conversations (aspects) with Pluto, Jupiter, and Mercury.

It will be easier for you to reach out and engage with others, to support the struggles of those you love and allow them to support you.

At 4:36 PM EDT, the Moon leaves the deep waters of Scorpio behind to enter the mutable, fire sign of Sagittarius. This brings with it a much lighter emotional state.

In the past, I would say this is a great Friday night to go dancing with friends. Although you are staying safe at home, this is still a good night for dancing. Plan a dance party in your living room with your family or whoever is with you in your home. Arrange for an online dance party or simply turn up the music and dance alone.

Allow your mind to look forward to days when life will be easier. Sagittarius loves to travel, to see the world from an open, expansive perspective. The desire to travel and explore new ideas can be satisfied with travel documentaries that show other people, lands, cultures. Explore and expand your view of the world in all its beautiful manifestations. Seek beauty in nature and culture.

***The Scorpio Moon is void-of-course from 3:35 PM EDT until she enters Sagittarius at 4:36 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

SPEAK WITH COURAGESaturday, April 11, 2020

Shortly after midnight last night, Mercury entered Aries. Aries is a cardinal fire sign and Mercury is the planet that represents thinking and communication.

Mercury has been in passive quiet Pisces for the past three weeks making it challenging to understand or speak clearly. Now in Aries, Mercury is ready to speak up and say what is true with courage and determination. Speak up, tell the truth and expect others to do the same.

At 7:57 PM EDT Mercury forms a sextile aspect to Saturn. This offers an opportunity for direct honest speech as you take responsibility and find the courage you want to express in your world.

Say what you see and listen carefully to the feedback you receive. Determination, understanding, listening, speaking, and courage are required.

In your personal life, what spoken truth have you been holding back? Now is the time to say what is true for you.

Consider the cycle between Mercury and Saturn. In mid-January, the week of the eclipse and the Saturn Pluto conjunction, Saturn and Mercury began a new cycle. This was a significant time in the coronavirus coming to the USA. There is an opportunity now for something that has been growing in the dark to be expressed. What do we not understand in the story of our country’s response? There is an opportunity now for greater understanding.

ENGAGE WITH HOPESunday, April 12, 2020

With the Sun and Mercury in Aries and the Moon in Sagittarius, today is likely to be an easier day than many we have encountered recently.

The day begins with a beautiful trine aspect between the Sun and Moon suggesting that our emotions and our drive forward are in full alignment. Your desires and needs flow more easily than is often the case.

Perhaps you will receive good news that will make you feel lighter and more hopeful looking toward the future.

Spent the day outside if you can, go for a long walk, hike, run, or bike ride. Work in your garden. Moving your body will improve your feelings about everything.

At 8:06 PM EDT, the Moon enters Capricorn bringing your emotions back to the realities at hand. Stay home. Stay safe. Engage deeply with family and friends.

***The Sagittarius Moon is void-of-course from 7:46 AM EDT until she enters Capricorn at 8:06 PM EDT. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

Jennie Date of Hidden Path Astrology and I are creating regular videos that we are making available for everyone on the $5 level on Astrolore’s Patreon. If Astrolore’s posts help and you would like to see more, please become a patron. Your support will help me continue writing these posts and developing other programs to make astrology useful, practical, and fun.

* 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. 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.
