CONNECTION AND TRUST – Monday, December 9, 2019
When Mercury entered Scorpio on October 3rd, our thoughts took on a more investigative tone. Its retrograde lasted from October 31st until November 20th. During that time we dug deep, searching for truth and integrity in our thinking and speech. The retrograde kept Mercury in Scorpio for a longer time than it usually spends in a sign. Conspiracy theories and dark investigations have occupied our minds. We have faced demons in that search for truth.
Today Mercury leaves that behind to enter Sagittarius. Your thoughts are ready for the overview, to face the truth as seen from a higher vantage point.
The Taurus Moon makes lovely aspects to Neptune, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto today. Forgive differences, look for the humanity beneath the issues that separate you from others. Rest in connection and trust.
The Taurus Moon is void-of-course from 8:13 PM EST until she enters Gemini tomorrow at 11:46 AM EST, suggesting that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.


LIGHTNESS AND HUMOR – Tuesday, December 10, 2019
Today begins with the quiet simplicity of the Taurus Moon. Take your time over tea and breakfast. Engage others with quiet, slow determination. Enjoy this calm as it won’t last long.
At 11:46 AM EST, the tempo of the day increases as the Moon enters Gemini.
Gemini is a talkative sign. You may not want long, deep conversations but will enjoy exchanging quick ideas and witty observations. Now is a good time for catching up on emails or connecting with phone calls and texts.
Gemini is a light-hearted sign and may bring the trickster into play. Humor is a great way to keep from serious topics, as those will have to wait for another day.
When the Moon opposes Mercury at 3:43 PM EST, watch the tendency to gossip. Stay with easy banter, making sure it is not directed in a negative way toward others.
Spend the evening playing board games or simply chattering with your family and friends.
The Taurus Moon is void-of-course until she enters Gemini at 11:46 AM EST, suggesting that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

COMMIT TO YOUR VALUES – Wednesday, December 11, 2019
Before your alarm has dragged you out of bed, lovely Venus joins with grim Saturn. You may feel like you’ve hit the proverbial wall and want nothing more than to climb back into bed. Don’t deny the sense of isolation and sadness that you feel; instead use it to develop or plan for a new beginning. 
Today’s conjunction starts a year-long cycle regarding your values of love and beauty. Your love relationship is challenged and tested today.
Do you have the depth of commitment necessary for the long haul? If your answer to that question is yes, then put a stake in the ground today to make your commitment clear. If your answer is no, then begin its unraveling. Fast or public action is not required. You will know where you stand and the direction you are going. 
The same principle applies to your finances. Are you managing your money in a way that is taking you to where you want to be, or do you need to establish a financial plan? Make a commitment to your values in love and finances.
At 5:11 PM EST, the Gemini Moon squares Neptune. Let yourself relax after a long and solemn day. Have a glass of wine, listen to music, or watch a movie that will carry you away.
Although you will see her so full in the night sky, the Gemini Full Moon does not occur until after midnight, bringing her impact fully into tomorrow.

GEMINI FULL MOON – SHARE KNOWLEDGE – Thursday, December 12, 2019
The Gemini Full Moon at 12:12 AM EST may have been disruptive to your sleep. It is often hard to get a solid night’s sleep at the Full Moon. You may wake without enough sleep feeling unsettled and anxious. Please engage in good self-care as you don’t want to miss out on the pleasures available today.
Consider how to share what you have learned since the New Moon on November 26th. Thinking back and congratulate yourself on your accomplishments. Likely they are more significant than you realize.
Today is a social day best spent in the company of others with whom you are free to express yourself. If you don’t have a social community, sit with a good book or a writing project to engage your active mind and quick wit.
As the Moon begins her waning phase, release a stubborn habit of mind that does not serve the future you desire.
At 6:24 PM EST, the Moon leaves chatty Gemini behind and moves into sensitive Cancer. The next few days will bring your attention to the care and love of your home and family.
The Gemini Moon is void-of-course from 12:13 AM EST until she enters Cancer at 6:24 PM EST, suggesting that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

INNER WORK IS NECESSARY – Friday, December 13, 2019
Today is a complicated day that may unsettle your equilibrium. The day starts with a lovely trine aspect from Mars to Neptune, inspiring you to express creativity, compassion, and sensitivity.
The complication comes in the form of Venus joining with Pluto at 10:16 AM EST. Venus represents our values and expresses itself in intimate partnerships and finances. 
Observe yourself and those you are closest to. If you encounter manipulation, obsessiveness, or unhealthy power dynamics, remove yourself from the situation. Don’t snoop in your partner’s emails, purse, wallet, or car glove compartment. If you feel the need to do those things, ask yourself what the underlying problem is. Is it hard for you to trust others, or are you drawn to folks who are not trustworthy? Do the work necessary to soften hard, unspoken rules in your own heart. Learn first to trust yourself. That is your work today.
The Cancer Moon makes lovely aspects that do their best to keep you connected to family and loved ones with kindness and sensitivity.

DECORATE THE TREE & BAKE COOKIES – Saturday, December 14, 2019
The Cancer Moon is tangled up in challenging aspects this morning. You may feel emotional, clingy, and nostalgic. Maybe you see that reflected in a family member at your breakfast table this morning. Spend the morning in simple self-care routines. That will allow the rest of the day to proceed without difficulty.
At 10:57 AM EST, the Moon disengages and is void-of-course for the rest of the day. Today is not the day for your holiday shopping. If you do so in the morning it will cause anxiety and stress. If you do so in the afternoon, you will make poor choices on purchases. Spend the afternoon with family. Decorate the tree, bake cookies, and make cheerful memories.
At 10:57 PM EST, the Moon enters Leo ushering in the next few days of playful excitement and fun.
The Cancer Moon is void-of-course from 10:57 AM EST until she enters Leo at 10:57 PM EST, suggesting that what occurs during this time will not have much impact.

SAY YES TO ADVENTURE – Sunday, December 15, 2019
Today is a day for excitement, so prepare yourself for celebration and laughter. If you took Astrolore’s advice yesterday, you will wake to a festively decorated home. Did you make holiday cookies as well? If so, deliver some to your friends or family today. A surprise offering will provide a powerful opening in the heart of yourself and a loved one.
Jupiter trine Uranus at 2:01 PM EST brings luck and excitement. If you have been feeling restless in recent weeks, today will unexpectedly open the door to a positive change and a new way forward. Do not hesitate to say YES to an adventure or opportunity that crosses your path today.
Personal growth can be sudden and unexpected. With the Moon in Leo, there is the bright shine of excitement lighting your way forward.

* 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.
