“The Arrow and the Song” By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.

Monday, December 14, 2015:
This past weekend may not have been the joyous one you may have been hoping for. If you were lucky enough to avoid depression or a heavy mental outlook, consider yourself fortunate.
For most of us, it was not an easy weekend but here we are with the opportunity to begin anew. Just before 8:00 AM EST, the Moon enters Aquarius, encouraging you to seek solutions to the larger problems outside of your own backyard. You are able to see humanitarian difficulties and you long to step outside of yourself to help. Sit down and make a plan of how you intend to help the world.
We each have a unique ability, inclination, and sensitivity to these issues. You could give a donation to a worthy humanitarian cause or you can help at a local soup kitchen. Perhaps, you can organize an outreach to the homeless in your community. All efforts, big and small, are needed. Your choice may be simpler; perhaps you will commit to showing extra appreciation and kindness to the cashier at the grocery store, or you will bring a cup of hot coffee to the homeless person on the corner, or you will buy shoes for your grandchild to make the season easier for their parents. Whatever you choose; make it a commitment. Don’t allow it to slip through the cracks.
At 10:02 AM EST, the Sun squares Jupiter suggesting that it is important to take some action on an expansion that began in your life in late August. Take a large step forward into expressing humor, expansion, and joy.
At 2:39 PM EST, Mercury sextile Neptune, asks you to open yourself to deep levels of compassion and understanding. Help those in need; you won’t need to look very far to find them.
EMBRACE THE FUTURE
Tuesday, December 15, 2015:
Tuesday is a day to go in search of unusual, unexpected excitement. This week, you may be open to exploring different possibilities than you wouldn’t have even known existed in the past.
Allow that which you have not allowed. You may be pleasantly surprised at what is readily available.
Let the Universe show you what is a possibility.
Believe what you are told. If the answer is NO, accept that. It may not be the answer that you want. Work on acceptance. This is a day you could make great progress on seeing your situation objectively.
The Aquarius Moon shows us possibilities for the future that are unlike anything from the past. Our minds and hearts must be willing to embrace the future.
Wednesday, December 16, 2015:
Wednesday morning is best suited to simple routine tasks, the kind you perform out of habit. Clean out your email inbox. Fold your laundry.
Spend the morning on those tasks you know so well that you can allow your mind to detach from the activity. Pay attention to your small quiet voice within of curiosity and creativity. Within the space of habitual tasks, creativity and curiosity can play.
At 12:45 PM EST, the Moon enters Pisces and we are called to turn this energy into the blossoming of internal vision and inspiration.
Ah, that sounds so poetic. Perhaps a poem or a dream is asking to be born. Perhaps, you are being asked to simply trust the process you are in to your higher understanding. Trust the wisdom of your intuition. Take one internal step forward that comes from sheer trust.
RELEASE WITH EASE
Thursday, December 17, 2015:
The Moon continues through Pisces on Thursday. The energy of inspiration and vision remains strong.
What powerfully sets this Thursday apart is a sextile aspect from Venus to Pluto at 6:19 AM EST. This is the closing aspect of a cycle whose goal is to sanction and empower your deepest held values. At this time, you are offered an opportunity to express the full charge of your personal power in relationship to others and to your ability to create necessary and desired resources.
Do you experience yourself as a courageous, powerful person? Do you question your ability to find the courage necessary to express your most authentic and capable self?
Thursday offers the opportunity to release something that is holding you back. Find what is holding you back and release it. It will be easier than you expect if you simply take the action now.
PUSH FORWARD ASSERTIVELY
Friday, December 18, 2015:
Consider the seed that you planted last week at the Sagittarius New Moon. Consider what your intention was in planting it. On Friday, we come to the First-Quarter phase of the Moon. At this time, it is important to take a specific and direct action on whatever you began at the New Moon.
Due to the New Moon in Sagittarius, we would expect you to have begun or aspired to an expansion or a major overhaul in your life. Keep in mind that this is only a one-month cycle.
Determine what it was that you started last Friday and now take a clear action to push that situation forward. Did you start a new meditation practice or did you discover a new avenue for fun in your life? The First Quarter Moon is exact at 10:15 AM EST, still in Pisces.
At 4:26 PM EST, the Moon enters Aries and you enter an evening of assertively going after what you want. Determine what it is that you want this weekend; pursue it relentlessly.
This is a perfect evening for dancing or making love. Physical energy is high. Enjoy.
WATCH YOUR MIND & SPEECH
Saturday, December 19, 2015:
With the Moon in Aries all day on Saturday and most of Sunday, you can expect a weekend of high activity. At 1:55 PM EST, Mercury conjunct Pluto, and on Sunday, Mercury will square Uranus. This transit reminds us that Uranus and Pluto are still in a difficult communication with each other.
Remember, what has transformed within you over the course of the past several years. We are still assimilating all that occurred since 2012.
Do not expect the intensity of Saturday to end quickly. On Sunday, Mercury will square Uranus keeping this theme hot with life.
Be ultra aware of how you speak with others and how you respond to the communications of others. Be aware of the assumptions you make and the assumptions others around you are making.
It would be very easy to have verbal battles or conflicts this weekend. As always with difficult aspects, be sure to take extra time in meditation and to be particularly diligent in observing the motion of your own mind.
Do not assume that your assumptions are any more correct in the assumptions others make of you.
DEPTH AND INTENSIFICATION
Sunday, December 20, 2015:
Thus far, December has been intense and uneasy, and this weekend is certainly no improvement. On Sunday, the Moon leaves Aries behind and enters Taurus at 7:13 PM EST.
On an emotional level, we are ready to stabilize and settle, and yet, with Mercury squaring Uranus on Sunday, following Mercury conjunct Pluto on Saturday, we carry a tremendous amount of depth and intensification throughout the weekend.
Once again, pay careful attention to your communications, to how you speak to others, and to how others perceive you.
It would be easy to have interpersonal problems this weekend. Please, take extra time in meditation, spend time alone, and keep yourself centered, calm, and aware.
* 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.
