Astrolore’s Weekly Astrology Weather: February 8, 2016 through February 14, 2016

As I write these posts, week after week, I feel a bit like we are all on a roller coaster. One week we’re up, next week we’re down. Does it feel a bit disorienting? It does to me. And the good news is this week brings a lightness that is greatly welcome after last week’s upheaval.

Contemplation for the week:

“No coward soul mine,
No trembler in the world’s storm-troubled sphere:
I see Heaven’s glories shine,
And faith shines equal, arming me from fear.”
~Emily Bronte

Monday, February 8, 2016:

The week begins with the Aquarius New Moon exact at 9:39 AM EST. The New Moon represents new beginnings; it is always significant to pay attention to what you want to create in your life and what new direction is calling you now.

Aquarius is the sign of the revolutionary, the humanitarian, and the eccentric. Now, is the time to take a step forward in the service of humanity. In considering what to begin at this time, make the larger human family your priority. What can you do that will not only support your own life, but will support the motion forward for all of humankind?

Venus is sextile Chiron on Monday as well. Venus speaks of value and beauty; Chiron speaks of the areas we have been wounded and our ability to heal ourselves and others. A sextile between any two planets offers an opportunity or a potential.

Beauty and kindness offer deep healing to the pain within us all. True beauty heals pain. Consider the healing power of creativity, color, and music.

A beautiful bouquet of flowers on your kitchen table makes all of life seem more workable. Never neglect bringing beauty into your home. Never underestimate how beauty can change your life.



Tuesday, February 9, 2016:

By the time we awake on Tuesday morning, the Moon is in Pisces. Offer your emotions up to your vast, sensitive, interior terrain. Tuesday evening, the Moon connects with Neptune, bringing more of that sensitive open space to mind.

This is a day for artists and mystics! We have our finger on a pulse of internal openness, our boundaries lessen, and our imagination opens.

On Monday, Venus put herself in service of our deepest sense of beauty, now, on Tuesday, this sensitive, imaginative energy directly connects with our ability to take action and reach for a deep personal healing. Today, Mars trines Chiron.

This is a powerful day to go to your most internal, silent spaces and work on the healing that is required for you to live your most authentic life. It is within your true authenticity that you can find joy and be of service to the greater good of everyone you love and everyone you encounter.

Wednesday, February 10, 2016:

Wednesday continues with Tuesday’s energy as a day of deep imagination and sensitivity. The Pisces Moon makes many aspects throughout the day suggesting a day of increased activity.

Early on Wednesday morning, Venus forms a trine aspect to Jupiter. This cycle of expanding values, resources, and the expansion of primary love connection began in late October 2015. If you can identify what occurred in late October, you will see that these energies are flowing together now, as they reach toward culmination of a new expanded sense of personal self worth.

When Jupiter and Venus come together, we feel a deep desire for growth and expansion in our intimate relationships and in relationship to our finances. We feel our horizons broaden and we are open to new possibilities for growth. Jupiter expands whatever it touches, so, however you are feeling regarding your relationships and money will increase for better or worse, as Jupiter simply magnifies what is already present.

Take this opportunity to push your life toward an ever increasing, deepening sense of your own value and self-worth.



Thursday, February 11, 2016:

Thursday offers a simple day of action. We are ready to put aside the sensitivity of the past few days and simply push forward with the Moon now in Aries.

While the Moon is in Aries, our instinctual reactions move us forward quickly with an edgy restlessness. This is a day to pay attention to your ability to face your fears and push through those fears with courage and direct motion forward.

If you notice yourself moving out of your comfort zone, you can be certain you are heading in the right direction. Use the spark of momentum underlying this day to push toward the one thing you are most afraid to do.

Once you have taken that step, pushed into that courage, and taken that action you will feel fabulous. You will see yourself as a courageous powerful person capable of taking risks and moving into a place that you were not capable of quite recently. Aries is powerful, strong, independent, and doesn’t take ‘No’ for an answer.

Breathe deeply and face your fear.



Friday, February 12, 2016:

On Friday, the Moon is still in Aries, pushing our instinctual reactions forward. However, Thursday was less complicated, with the issue at hand being direct and clear. Now, the internal edgy restlessness encounters a great resistance. This resistance can result in uncomfortable internal interactions with self and others.
The problem is that Friday the Aries Moon gets tangled up in the struggle between Pluto and Uranus. Once again, it is important to look at the long-range transformation that has been working through your life and the world around you for several years now.

On an emotional level, we are caught between the revolutionary changes we know are urgently needed, and the fear that holds us back from embracing that necessary change and transformation.

As you and those around you struggle with this internal dilemma, it may be a good evening to be very mindful in your planning. This would be a great evening for solo activities particularly if they involve assertively using your physicality.

Use your physical body, engage your strength.

Saturday, February 13, 2016:

As you move into Saturday, you will notice an inner relaxation and relief. At 6:36 AM EST, the Moon leaves aggressive Aries behind to enter the stable, sensual domain of Taurus. The Moon loves being in Taurus; on an emotional level she settles into a mellow space. When the Moon is in Taurus, you may want to languish over a good meal, enjoy time in nature, and revere all the benefits of living within a human body.

At 5:42 PM EST, Mercury enters Aquarius! This is my personal favorite placement for Mercury. Mercury represents all issues related to the mind; how we think, what we think about, and how we communicate. Aquarius is the sign of genius; not necessarily an indication of the level of intelligence, but the ability of the mind to travel in unusual ways and unexpected directions.

While Mercury is in Aquarius, (until March 5, 2016), start to gather a team or community that will support you to your highest goals, ideals, and dreams. This is a time of innovation within the context of community. High levels of innovation will not occur within a vacuum! Gather creative, expansive individuals and work together to dream the highest vision of your values and creativity.

At 5:58 PM EST, Mars sextile Jupiter; this suggests an opportunity for energetic expansion. The cycle between Mars and Jupiter began in mid-October of 2015. This is a two-year cycle; a cycle of expanding assertiveness, energy, and possibly your sexuality. Whatever began in mid-October will now take a step forward through curiosity and your own willingness to take the opportunities that presents them selves.

Expect this weekend to offer an opportunity for moving physical energy, sexual or otherwise. Dance, run, ski, do yoga, play! Enjoy!



Sunday, February 14, 2016:

I love to see a weekend like this one. First, we have stability with an overlay of creative energy on Saturday and then Sunday shows up, offering simplicity and calm. What we are looking for on Sunday above all is comfort. We feel well anchored on the material plane and it is easy to tap into the senses. We find it easier to be patient, and to simply “Be Here Now” without stress.

Taurus is ruled by Venus which connects this energy to our need for beauty and constancy.

On Sunday, it will be so much easier to simply be at peace with yourself.
This is a day to savor living in a human body. Get or give a massage. Delight in providing yourself and your loved ones with comfort, beauty, and a home cooked meal. The Moon in Taurus offers the gift of awareness; pay attention to taste, sights, smells, and touch. Bring reverence to all that you encounter.

Routines comfort us; comfort is the order of the day as our awareness of all of our senses is amplified.

* 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.
