How were your family challenges of the first Winter Holiday of 2014? Did you enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends and did you avoid shopping on Black Friday? (it was a very poor day, astrologically, to shop)
There are several things that we all need to keep in mind as we move forward.
This week brings us to the Gemini Full Moon on Saturday. This gives us the opportunity to spend the early part of the week consciously building to the culmination of what we began on Saturday November 22nd at the Sagittarius New Moon. Consider what it was that you began and how much effort is required to bring this situation to the culmination you desire.
Keep in mind, as well, that behind the daily shifts and changes, the most powerful cycle of Uranus (defiance) and Pluto (empowerment) continue to transform the very fabric of our individual lives, our families, the culture we live in, and the species that we are a part of.
In mid-December we will be reaching the sixth of seven Square Aspects between Uranus and Pluto (ongoing since the Summer of 2012). Over the coming weeks we can expect to experience (once again) the building anxiety, stress, excitement, and insistence on change. Have we grown accustomed to this deep intensity? Are we still struggling to prevent the inevitable from occurring?
Are we aware of the change that has already occurred? Are our friends and partners aware that we have become entirely different people than we were 3 years ago? It is truly amazing how much can change in a relatively short period of time.
This week also brings enthusiasm and optimistic self-confidence. There is a lot of activity within the Fire Element. As Sagittarius Energy increases, both the Sun and Mercury Trine Uranus, and Venus Trine Jupiter (all in Fire Signs). An increase in Fire Energy encourages our independence and our impatience. Utilizing physical energy is helpful as we struggle to siphon off some of the confronting or overbearing tendencies within the Fire Element. We may be a bit insensitive and yet we are naïvely generous and optimistic as well. Watch these tendencies in yourself and those

KINDNESS IS A PRICELESS GIFT
Heading back to work after a long weekend can be difficult. Monday will be one of those days.
If you spent Thanksgiving with Family, were the struggles of your own life situation brought painfully to the surface? How authentic were you able to be within the context of holiday and family? What did you encounter over the weekend that brought clarity to the need for change in your life?
The revolutionary change that is occurring in your personal life has already taken so long. Some of us struggle terribly with patience. Once we see the change that we desire, we want it NOW. This transformation has been ongoing for several years; it is not for the faint of heart and requires steadfast patience.
Uranus and Pluto, the big boys of the zodiac, who have been battling it out since 2012 are coming very close to connecting once again. We may be tired of this ongoing stress and demand for change, and yet we know we are not finished yet.
If you know where 12° of Aries and 12° of Capricorn are in your horoscope, look to those places to better understand your own personal life change.
On another note; did you begin a physical discipline in August of this year, or consciously begin to work on issues of aggression and anger? On Monday Mars Sextile Saturn supporting this important work. You can take a significant step toward structuring your physical energy or stabilizing assertiveness, aggression, or anger.
Offer support to others, none of us can do our work alone. What we offer is likely to be more important than we realize. Kindness may be all you have to offer, understand that it is a priceless gift.

ABSORB PASSION, CREATIVITY, AND ENTHUSIASM
If you focus your attention on accomplishment Tuesday should be a great day.
The Aries Moon makes positive aspects throughout the day providing strong and determined energy for leadership and action.
The Aries Moon also forms a Square to Mars before bedtime; at that point we may encounter anger, assertiveness, aggression, or the energy for a delightfully passionate romp in the hay! You choose!
We are currently immersed in the energy that continues to play out in the background; the insistence within the connection between Uranus and Pluto. We also encounter the excitement that the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Uranus are offering through the free flow of passionate and fiery energies moving between them. We feel it all. The intensity of this time is not wasted on us. It is active in every fiber of our being!
Focus on what needs to get done in your life. Pay attention to the places that you need inspiration, courage, and initiative. Keep in mind that Fire generates spontaneity, passion, creativity, and enthusiasm. Use that powerful energy to move yourself forward. After all, there is no going back.
It is good to remember that we are in the Waxing Phase of the Moon. Energy is building; whatever you start today has solid energy behind it.
Get to work and enjoy the day.

FOCUS ON STABILIZING YOUR ENERGIES
Simply! Make contact with the most sensual side of your nature on Wednesday. The Moon is in Taurus without making any major aspects.
Take a moment to think of the planets as teachers. The aspects formed between them represent the conversations they are having to support the teaching we are receiving. Today there are no EXACT aspects being formed. On a day like this we are able to assimilate much of the learning we have received in previous days. It is as though the day has no further complications beyond the assimilation of what has occurred before.
The period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is an interesting window in time. For many of us it can be a difficult time to focus our attention on the bigger picture of our life. Our attention seems to be pulled into many directions that the culture and outside sources have determined for us. We shop, we plan social events, we attend performances and parties.
This change in our schedules can wreck havoc in our carefully ordered lives. It is good to find days that have solid steadfast energy that we can utilize to ground ourselves through this time. Today is one of those days. Simply get to work, Focus your attention, and use the time to absorb and assimilate ongoing lessons of your life.

YOUR PATH LEADS TO FREEDOM
Thursday should prove to be a delightfully fiery and expressive day. We have two major Trine Aspects occurring in Fire Signs.
- Venus trine Jupiter in fire 22° at 11:10 AM EST
- Sun Trine Uranus in fire 12° at 2:29 PM EST
This brings as to a powerful point in two separate cycles. In April the Sun made contact with Uranus, beginning a Cycle of intense and unusual excitement. In August, Venus made contact with Jupiter beginning a Cycle of expanding your deepest personal values of love and resources. These two Cycles come together today with a free flow of energy expanding these areas of your life.
This is a good time to do so. Take out your chart and find the houses that hold 22° of Sagittarius and Leo and 12° of Sagittarius and Aries. This is the area of your life where you can expect to feel the excitement of enthusiasm, action, and impatience.
Both of these aspects are occurring in Fire Signs. I would anticipate action and excitement. We know we are on the path of changing our lives in a way that supports the evolution, not only of our own lives, but of the very culture we reside in.
The love (this could also refer to money or resources) in your life that began (or deepened) in mid-August is currently expanding with great joy. Allow your heart to be open and accept the direction this expansion is leading you in.
At 3:56 PM EST Mars enters Aquarius. Mars is the planet of dynamic action and courageous initiative. Having been in Capricorn (where action has been conservative and cautious) for a little over a month, Mars is now ready to demand freedom, detach from the emotional demands of others, and objectively move forward.

AN AUTHENTIC LIFE REQUIRES INTEGRITY AND TRUTH
We wake up on Friday morning with a great deal to say! The Moon enters Gemini at 2:28 AM EST. The emotional environment of the day requires verbal expression, connection, and feedback.
We speak with emotion, and our emotions require verbal expression. Whatever you feel, go ahead and put words to it!
Everyone you encounter today has something significant to say. Take the time to listen.
So, what can you expect with Mercury Trine Uranus? Consider the Trine as a free flow of positive energy. Mercury represents our conscious mind, how we think, and our communications. Uranus represents sudden inspiration, the need for originality, and freedom through defiance. Look for sudden originality in your thinking, a certain amount of anxiety, and the internal insistence on telling the truth in order to live that authentic life you know is being demanded of you.
Expect the unexpected and anticipate surprising information from others. If you have something to say that may be unsettling to those folks you need to talk with, this is the day. Friday is the day to say what is true for you.
Mercury Trine Uranus at 10:43 PM EST. This transit will be powerfully impacting us throughout Friday and Saturday.
Be sure to look at your horoscope to find where 12° Sagittarius and 12° Aries fall. The issues of the houses involves show what you need to talk about! 😉
Saturday December 6, 2014:
HONESTY OPENS THE DOOR TO FREEDOM
What did you begin two weeks ago (November 22nd)? Where did you begin to expand something in your life at the Sagittarius New Moon?
On Saturday we reached the full expression of what began at that time. The Full Moon in Gemini is exact at 7:27 AM EST.
This is another fiery & exciting day as the Gemini Moon forms a Sextile aspect to both Jupiter and Uranus. Whatever conversation began on Friday is very active throughout today as well. Whatever surprises, or shocks, were brought to your attention on Friday have your mind in a state of high anticipation, excitement, or overwhelm.
Use this exciting and innovative energy to stimulate your conversations and bring you to a new place of understanding and honest expression in your life.
With this energy now in motion, by the end of the weekend all your cards should be on the table! This may be a frightening concept, but think of the freedom of nothing left to hide!
If you want to know where someone else stands on a particular topic, this is the time to ask. Honesty will prevail.
Sunday December 7, 2014:
CONNECT WITH FAMILY LOVE
All in all I expect this will be a pleasant week, even with the profound intensity of telling our truth or hearing the unexpected truth of another. In reality, perhaps it was not all that unexpected.
On the heels of that intensity we should be ready to enjoy a slow Sunday morning.
At 12:33 PM EST the Moon enters Cancer encouraging us to connect with family and loved ones. Share a meal or bring a gift of food when you go to visit. Allow nostalgia to connect you to family members and loved ones. This will be a great afternoon to pull out the photo albums and listen to music that connects you to the past. Allow comfort from the past to stabilize you in the uncertainty of Now!
Remember, we are only eight days from the 6th out of 7 Uranus Square Pluto transits. This is the on-going transformation of your life that began to take shape in the Summer of 2012.
Please make sure you know where 12° Aries and 12° Capricorn are in your chart. Continue forward with your eyes wide open on the major life changes you are engaged in. Also, continue your awareness of the transformation of the political and social climate of our country, our communities, and our world.
Be in touch with me for a consultation; schedule it today.
Understanding your place in the Planetary Cycles enables you to move with awareness along your personal life path and your soul’s direction.
This week: The VOC* Moon!
Block off these times in your schedule and avoid making significant decisions or working on important projects during these times. During VOC* Moon, focus on routine tasks. You will be surprised at how this one change will smooth the edges of your life!
Do you have questions about what is appropriate to do or not do during the VOC* moon? A simple way to think about it is to ask a simple question. Do I hope that this activity will amount to something? If the activity does not need to amount to anything go ahead with it! If you have an expectation or desire that this action is going to amount to something, do not do it while the moon is VOC*.
Think about the time you bought a book you were certain you were going to love and you never could finish it! Think about the time you bought the perfect article of clothing that you ended up never wearing; that is the moon VOC!
Tuesday, December 2, 2014 Moon is VOC* (in Aries) following a Square to Mars at 9:42 PM EST and ending on Wednesday, December 3 at 12:15 AM EST when the Moon enters Taurus.
Wednesday December 4, 2014 Moon is VOC* (in Taurus) following an Opposition to Saturn at 10:45 PM EST and ending at 2:28 AM EST on Thursday, December 5th, when the Moon enters Gemini.
Sunday, December 7, 2014 Moon is VOC* (in Gemini) following an Opposition to Venus at 1:52 AM EST and ending at 9:33 AM EST when the Moon enters Cancer.
* 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 it’s VOC time, as that aspect holds it’s influence throughout the VOC*
The Aspects I consider: Conjunctions, Sextiles, Squares, Trines, and Oppositions
The Planets I am working with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
*VOC (void of course) refers to the period of time between the final aspect that the Moon makes while in one sign until she enters the next sign. This can consist of several minutes or many hours. These periods are best handled with little expectation of accomplishment; times ideally suited for rest and contemplation.
