CLEAR THE PATHWAY TO LOVE
Monday, February 6, 2017:
The week begins with the Moon in talkative Gemini, pay attention and you may notice that people are very willing to talk about their emotions. Throughout the course of the day, you will find plenty of people to talk to and things to talk about.
The Moon forms lovely aspects to the vital Sun, inspirational Uranus, and idealistic Jupiter. Your conversations should have an air of expansion and the ability to stimulate excitement. Monday will be a great day to engage in any writing projects or public speaking.
The big news on Monday is that Jupiter, the planet of enthusiasm, confidence, and philosophy turns retrograde at 23° Libra. Jupiter has been moving direct since May 2016, it has been in Libra, the sign of partnership and diplomacy, since September 9, 2016.
If you have been confidently moving forward in a relationship or other diplomatic project, now is the time to slow down and look carefully at any places you may have expanded too quickly or any places where you have not built in the proper structure and groundwork to support the next steps forward. Jupiter will remain retrograde until June 9, 2017.
Over the coming months, you would be well advised to revisit conversations, plans, and expectations that have previously been made (or assumed) with loved ones or partners. You may feel quite differently regarding your partners or your ideas related to the relationship in general, now than you did in May 2016. Does your partner know what has changed in your heart? Make sure the road is clear before pushing forward again in June.
The Gemini Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 5:53 PM EST until she enters Cancer on Tuesday morning at 2:03 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.
CLARITY OF MIND
Tuesday, February 7, 2017:
Don’t be surprised when you wake up Tuesday morning feeling moody and emotional, and yet also intellectually inquisitive, with great mental clarity and unusual ideas.
Mercury, the planet that represents your thinking, communications, and even your perceptions, just entered unconventional, quirky Aquarius while you slept. Mercury is moving quite quickly and will only remain in Aquarius until February 25th. Enjoy the sharp clarity that Mercury brings in this sign, as you are able to think and communicate from a space of objectivity and without being overwhelmed with emotional depth or confusion.
This is a time when your thinking can enter innovative and unpredictable realms. During this time, you may find very unusual and unexpected solutions to problems that have recently seemed insurmountable. During times of Mercury in Aquarius, your thinking can move far outside the box of convention and into new, unpredictable arenas.
A large part of the day may hold some anxiety as you attempt to adjust to this new way of thinking because for the past month Mercury has been in conservative, authoritative Capricorn. This move signals a big change in attitude and thought.
At 8:20 PM EST, when the Cancer Moon forms a smooth flowing trine aspect to Neptune, you are able to release anxiety and allow compassion and your softer emotions to move through you, allowing you to deeply understand others and to express a very tender side of love.
THE VALUE OF FACING FEAR
Wednesday, February 8, 2017:
On Wednesday, the highly emotional Cancer Moon triggers the familiar ongoing anxiety within the culture as represented in the cardinal T-square between transformative Pluto, revolutionary Uranus, and expansive Jupiter.
On a personal level, your emotions may be quite close to the surface. It is easy to feel vulnerable and possibly afraid of the circumstances and the position you find yourself in.
At 4:59 PM EST, the tender Cancer Moon forms a challenging square aspect with Jupiter, you may experience this as a feeling of being overwhelmed by circumstances beyond your control.
As the Moon trines Chiron, we are directed to stay engaged, rather than turning away from your fear, but looking directly into the face of fear. You may find an unexpected pathway into your own healing by directly engaging with your deepest fears.
Offer compassion and love to those you encounter.
The Cancer Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 4:59 PM EST until she enters Leo on Thursday morning at 4:41 AM EST.
Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.
OPPORTUNITIES AND EPIPHANIES
Thursday, February 9, 2017:
I expect that you will feel like a great weight has lifted when you wake up Thursday morning. The Moon has moved into dramatic Leo bringing light, warmth, and expressive color to the day.
At 12:20 PM EST, the playful Leo Moon forms a lovely trine aspect to Venus, the planet of love and value. Allow a sweet flow between the love you give and the love you receive. Take nothing for granted and continue to offer a warm heart of generosity.
At 4:16 PM EST, the most significant aspect of the day brings a sextile between the Sun and non-conformist Uranus. A sextile offers opportunities and possibilities. The cycle between the Sun and Uranus is a cycle of developing individuality, reaching for what is unusual, and allowing yourself to go against the grain of cultural expectations.
This cycle began in early April of 2016. Think about what began in your life at that time. Now, you have the possibility of creatively engaging in a process of releasing or changing the form of what began that time. If what began then is still of value in your life, it is now time to get creative about how to begin a new form in mid April 2017. Explore ideas that will bring deep inspiration to the conversation. Keep your eyes open for unconventional and unusual epiphanies!
LEO FULL MOON, LUNAR ECLIPSE
Friday, February 10, 2017:
Friday begins relatively slowly, although we have an underlying awareness of the intense illumination of the evenings Leo Full Moon.
Before we get there however, we encounter mental Mercury sextile (the aspect of possibility) sensual Venus at 4:18 PM EST. This offers you the opportunity to fully express your deepest values within social situations or within intimate love partnerships. This may suggest a time to say what has previously been left unspoken. Depending on your circumstances, those words could be of connection or disconnection. The point is you are given the opportunity to make your position known.
Say what needs to be said to bring love forward. What direction or pathway do your deepest values call you to follow? Share what is true for you and expect to hear what is true for others.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is exact at 22° Leo at 7:33 PM EST. Perhaps, it is those words that are finally said that allow for a shift to occur that will change the course of the coming months. This is a time of resetting your emotions, allow your focus to rest on playful or creative self-expression. You may not know the change that is brewing inside, but a shift happens.
The corresponding Solar Eclipse, which occurs on February 26th, will assist in resetting your more objective intentions for forward focus and movement. For now, pay attention to the area of your chart that holds 22° Leo, say what needs to be said, and allow your heart to pivot with creativity, and colorful self-expression.
Saturday February 11, 2017:
If possible, let yourself sleep late on Saturday morning. At 8:52 AM EST, the Moon enters practical, analytical Virgo. Following the powerfully changing energies of Friday, Saturday is the day to turn to practical, detail-oriented work.
I know, this is not what you wanted to hear, after all, it is the weekend. However, you will come to the end of the day feeling much better if you focus your time on practical effort. Go ahead, get caught up on house cleaning, laundry, or attend to those jobs and projects that you know must be done.
At 10:25 AM EST, the Sun forms a flowing trine aspect to optimistic Jupiter. This allows you to deeply enjoy whatever task you choose to focus your efforts on. If you need help, this is the day to ask for it; if you see others in need, this is the day to offer help. The more work that you accomplish or the more help that you provide, the better you will feel when you head to sleep at the end of the day.
The Leo Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 12:53 AM EST until she ventures into Virgo at 8:52 AM EST. Remember, when the Moon is VOC* there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; not good, not bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have significant future impact.
DREAM. WORK. UNDERSTAND.
Sunday, February 12, 2017:
If it’s possible, Sunday will be another good morning to sleep late. In the wee hours of the morning, there is an opposition between the Virgo Moon and imaginative elusive Neptune. Stay asleep to enjoy the dreams that Neptune brings.
The Moon continues through productive hard-working Virgo until mid-day on Monday.
Stick with some of the projects you may have started on Saturday. You are going to feel great at the end of this weekend with all the work you can finish. The house will be tidy and you may even have a few closets, or even the attic cleaned out!
Enjoy accomplishing your own tasks or get out and help your neighbors and friends.
At 6:02 PM EST, the Moon trine Pluto brings a flow of intensification to your conversations and connections. Powerful dynamics come to the table. It is important that we listen to each other, allow the words you hear from others to get through. Listen. You do not have to agree to hear and understand. Understanding someone else’s viewpoint does not have to weaken your own.
* 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.
