Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: December 10, 2018 through December 16, 201


There is something out there. Astrology is like a game of chess with an invisible partner. We set out the board and the rules, make a move, and then find that the pieces are moving, as if by an invisible hand.” ~ Noel Tyl



Monday, December 10, 2018:

The day begins with the same serious energy that has been with you over the past few days. You may feel relieved to get back to your day job and be able to utilize this serious hard-working Capricorn Moon in a practical manner. Take advantage of it and get as much done as possible early in the day.

As you push deeper into the afternoon the Moon comes into contact with unpredictable Uranus. Allow that stodgy Capricorn work ethic to seek out innovative solutions. Something significant may occur to you that will make your work process move forward more quickly and easily.

At 6:40 PM EST the Moon enters humanitarian and unconventional Aquarius. This moves your focus from your own productivity and more toward seeking out others to expand your thinking. Aquarius is able to see the world and others with great objectivity. Gather with folks who engage your mind and open your perspective.


The Capricorn Moon is VOC* from 4:27 PM EST until she enters Aquarius at 6:40 PM EST. This simply suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have significant future impact.




Tuesday, December 11, 2018:

With the Moon in Aquarius, allow your self to move outside of what is expected. Allow that for others as well. No one is going to want to stay inside a restrictive box. We each march to the beat of a different drummer and when the Moon is in Aquarius it can be a bit more obvious than at other times. Express those parts of yourself that don’t always fit in well with others. Don’t take disapproval personally. Allow others to express their quirkiness as well.

Seek out people you don’t generally engage with. Listen and learn from folks who live within a different reality. We all tend to spend time with people who look, behave, and live much as we do. Break out of that mold. Widen your interest, look at the world from a more expansive or humanitarian perspective. Enjoy time with others, engage in intellectual conversations about the state of the world, consider what you can do to help the suffering of others in our human family.




Wednesday, December 12, 2018:

It is helpful to think of the planets as teachers. Mercury teaches us how to think and what to think about; this small planet is never far from Earth and teaches us through words, thoughts, and conversations. Mercury first entered Sagittarius at the very end of October and other than a slight dip back into Scorpio it and remained in this free-thinking sign until now.

Mercury enters Sagittarius at 6:42 PM EST where it will remain until January 4, 2019. Sagittarius is the planet of expansive optimism, philosophical wisdom, and idealism. Over the next few weeks, you may notice that the conversations you engage in have a more philosophical bent. Sagittarius can also bring tactless humor and boisterous opinions. Regardless of whether you experience your thoughts as having more wisdom or more impatience, recognize that you are exploring and seeking more adventure in the area of thoughts and communications.

The Moon continues through Aquarius keeping your emotions light and objective. As you go about your day, play a game with yourself. See how many people you can surprise with a smile and see how many will smile back. The combination of Sagittarius Sun, Jupiter, and now Mercury all in Sagittarius along with an Aquarius Moon is a delight. Engage with others to create a fun social evening.

Thursday, December 13, 2018:

Before the day really gets underway the Moon enters Pisces (7:40 AM EST) leading us into a quiet day of sensitivity and inspiration.

Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, but deeply emotional energies. This offers us a day that is great for meditation, engaging in inspiration, allowing yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watching movies, or making music. Enjoy rest and passive sweetness.

This can be challenging if you have to accomplish things that require determination or fortitude. If, however, you are an artist, a dreamer, or a poet you will welcome the poetic dreaminess available. While the Moon is in Pisces we all feel softer, more adaptable, sensitive, and vulnerable than usual. Remember this in your interactions with others. Everyone is feeling a bit tender around the edges. Compassion, intuition, and imagination will serve you well, enjoy a movie, a glass of wine, or time on your meditation cushion.


The Aquarius Moon is VOC* from 5:20 AM EST until she enters Pisces at 7:40 AM EST. This simply suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have significant future impact.




Friday, December 14, 2018:

With the Moon in Pisces find time for a nap, or simply allow yourself to be a bit less productive than your boss would like you to be, not in a rebellious manner but simply to take care of your need for rest. You may notice that you are sleepy and want to separate yourself from all the busyness of life. You may find that you are more susceptible to absorbing the emotional state of those around you. Remembering that before you make plans with others will help you to avoid falling into difficult emotional states brought on by others. Don’t engage with those whose energy will bring you into negative space. Rest, release, empty your mind.

“Life is a mystical and tragic thing. It is a journey often full of fear when it ought to be full of home. It is fascinating to look back on your life and feel as though most of it was a precursor to the rest of it; to what was always supposed to be.” ~ L. K. Hill




Saturday, December 15, 2018:

The morning begins with the First Quarter Moon Phase pulling us out of the doldrums that can sometimes come with the Pisces Moon. Consider what seed you planted at the New Moon last week. What kind of study or exploration is beginning to take shape? There is an internal push to take action, push forward on that issue.

Once the Moon enters Aries at 7:45 PM EST you are able to find the energy to enjoy that holiday event or party that was planned for Saturday night. Only a few hours ago you may have wished you could avoid it altogether but now energy has returned and you are ready.

With the Moon in Aries, you may be tempted to do something you normally would shy away from. You may be extra impulsive so pay special attention to how you handle anything that comes up. Remember, this is not a time for empathy or romance but a great time to kick up your heels, dance and engage in a direct passionate mutual exchange.


The Pisces Moon is VOC* from 6:50 AM EST until she enters Aries at 7:45 PM EST. This simply suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have significant future impact.



Sunday, December 16, 2018:

A funny mix of a day. The Aries Moon would like to spend time alone on individual endeavors of courage and daring but I expect that will take a back seat with Venus (in deeply emotional Scorpio) sextile Saturn at 9:26 AM EST. You probably want to have a serious close companion by your side in whatever the plans for the day. You may feel ready to devote yourself on a deeper level to one loyal partner. Look for an opportunity to show your true intentions of love and affection. Don’t look for spontaneous displays of connection as this reflects that which has held steady and grown over time. Make a suggestion or make a plan to stabilize love and partnership.

This could also reflect bringing a practical steady hand to your bank account. Balance your checkbook and pay the bills. This is a time to bring stability to what you value, be it love, beauty, or finances.

“We use astrology most constructively and creatively when we gain from it a sense of what is possible for us at the highest levels of our potentialities. Seeing that, the challenges is then to keep our eyes open to life itself, to be able to respond appropriately when some event or change of circumstances…” ~ Dane Rudhyar “Astrological Aspects – a Process Oriented Approach” 1980


* 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.
