We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more.” ~ Carl Jung


Monday, January 21, 2019:

While you were sleeping the second eclipse of the month, a lunar eclipse occurred. Lunar eclipses occur at a Full Moon. During this one, you are offered a unique opportunity to reset your emotions and clear away much discomfort from recent months. What can you see clearly that has seemed beyond view until now? Open your eyes, you may be surprised at what you have missed that is now so clearly obvious.

In the early part of the day, Mars forms a square aspect to Saturn insisting that you face obstacle(s) that are holding you back from something that you desire. There are times when we must face the reality of defeat. That is how we grow, mature, and learn humility. Remember that adage when one door closes another opens. Consider in your life how many times a refection or defeat opened up more advantageous paths to follow. Make it a practice to welcome all that comes to you, reject nothing.

With the Moon in Leo, you may face challenges with dramatic self-expression by putting your ‘inner-child’ on full display. With an awareness of this tendency determine if this full expression is in your best interest and adjust your behavior accordingly.




Tuesday, January 22, 2019:

Each year lovely Venus forms a conjunction with over-the-top optimistic Jupiter (at 16 degrees Sagittarius) bringing us one of the most positive and illuminating transits of each year. Venus and Jupiter are considered the most beneficial planets and when they meet we can expect a swelling of good feelings. Because these two planets are joining together in Sagittarius (the sign that Jupiter rules) their joint goodness is increased. Think of this as the start of a new cycle of pleasure unfolding or love being magnified. Determine to set aside the past and begin a new cycle of increase in Love and/or money. Look to the house in your chart that holds Sagittarius to understand one area where you can anticipate this increase.

The Leo Moon is delighted to support pleasure, playfulness, warmth, and generosity. Don’t be afraid to look foolish as you allow yourself and encourage your friends to play. Enjoy time with the children in your life. Play, have fun, open your heart without reserve.

The Moon enters Virgo just in time for bed. In anticipating an excellent night’s sleep, take a hot shower and put clean sheets on the bed before climing in.


The Leo Moon is void-of-course from 8:19 PM EST until she enters Virgo at 10:22 PM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.




Wednesday, January 23, 2019:

The ups and downs of this week may have your head spinning and here at mid-week you can anticipate intense excitement or anxiety. Which will you choose? Your mind will be challenged to find a way or a place to ‘land’. Don’t expect plans to go as expected. Stick with the circumstances as they present themselves, not as you wish them to be. You can’t do everything at once so do your best to slow down and take one thing at a time. You and those you encounter may have a serious case of foot-in-mouth disease. Watch how folks respond to the unpredictable things that are being said. Are you trying to get a reaction; is this a case of willful rebellion on your part? If it is, own it. Don’t pretend that it is otherwise. This is a day to look beyond the constraints of your own mind. Stir things up to try on new ideas and patterns of thinking. Don’t let anything or anyone hold down the unusual turn of your thoughts.

With the Moon in Virgo, you will be able to deal best with the wild mental activity through a steadfast dedication to practical chores. Let your mind and your words run wild as you wash the dishes and tidy your junk drawer.

Thursday, January 24, 2019:

For the next three weeks Mercury, the planet of ideas and thinking, will be in Aquarius. This is a great time for all innovating and objective intellectual activities. It is an ideal time to begin a serious study of astrology! Contact me. Your mind will be more open than usual to learning and absorbing complex information. You will be more willing than usual to buck the opinions of others. No matter how much you may have deferred to others in the past, no one will dictate the direction of your mind and study. What is the purpose of this new curiosity and interest? If your purpose is to be able to help others, you know you are on the right track.

What house, in your chart holds Aquarius? Your thoughts will turn to that area of your life until Mercury enters Pisces on February 10th.

Your expectations may be higher than usual during the Virgo Moon as you carefully observe yourself, your relationships, your projects, and the work that others are doing. Try to curb the tendency to be critical. Notice the edgy tone in your voice and seek to replace it with kindness and understanding.


The Virgo Moon is void-of-course from 8:51 AM EST until she enters Libra at 11:03 PM EST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.




Friday, January 25, 2019:

With the Moon in diplomatic, relationship-oriented Libra make it a point to bring pleasure, social niceties, and beauty to those you encounter. Commit yourself to seek, express, and notice gratitude, balance, and fairness everywhere you see it. The downside to Libra is the tendency to struggle with decision making. It can be a powerful challenge to take a stand when you are so interested in pleasing others. When the Moon is in Libra you are able to see both sides of an issue making it difficult to make a clear decision regarding your personal stand on the issue. Finding ways to offer kindness and bring beauty into the world is an easier goal.

As assertive Mars forms a flowing trine to expansive Jupiter, each in the sign they love the most, watch how easily action gets its reward. Mars the planet of action, physical energy and strength is in Aries, the sign of dynamic impulsive energy. He can be courageous, determined, selfish, or combative in this sign. Jupiter, the planet of confidence, idealism, and excess is in Sagittarius, the sign of philosophical understanding and expansion. Jupiter can be enthusiastic, optimistic, impatient, or opinionated in this sign. Take action with enthusiasm now. Whatever you put your mind to will grow and expand. Please be sure that kindness is a major ingredient in all that you do or your actions could become an issue of self-serving aggression. The Libra Moon helps you to avoid that pitfall.

“Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.” ~ Og Mandino




Saturday, January 26, 2019:

With the Moon in Libra, your weekend’s focus will be on creating a safe place of pleasure for all your significant partnerships. Of course, that includes your intimate partners but also good friends, clients, and other individuals that you may desire to please.

This weekend you will not be satisfied to spend time alone, working, or with your family. You want to engage with social situations where you can test your charm and be charmed by others.

As the Moon forms a difficult square to subversive Pluto at 11:30 AM EST you may want to wait until later in the day to seek out those pleasurable social connections. The powerplay or discomfort that the Moon engaging with Pluto brings will pass quickly if you don’t engage negatively with anyone. By the evening you are ready to get dressed up and go out. This is a good date-night but you can’t expect to get home early at the Moon moves to oppose Uranus shortly after midnight. Go dancing and stay out late.



Sunday, January 27, 2019:

Both objective and subjective realities and viewpoints have there place in our lives. The problem comes when they push and pull against each other. Objectivity is fact-based and without emotion. Subjectivity is emotionally based without inclusion of concrete facts.

Each year in February there comes a day when the Scorpio Moon squares the Aquarius Sun. On the one hand, you are aware of objective intellectual reality and yet there are powerful emotions that want to acknowledge a very different subjective reality. They are pushing strongly against each other at this 3rd Quarter Square Moon Phase. Where does objective reality face off against intense subjective feelings? Consider what has been building since the New Moon (Eclipse) on January 5th and is now ready to begin the process of breaking down. What is it that you are ready to discard but don’t want to face the difficulty or consequences of saying so?

You may find that you are suspicious of the motivations of others, you will do well to set that aside and explore something you would rather not look at about yourself. Under this Scorpio Moon, if you are willing to dig deeper you can transform an issue that you have struggled with for years. Personal vulnerability and facing profound and difficult truths has the power to transform what holds you from your truest self and your best life.


The Libra Moon is void-of-course from 12:21 AM EST until she enters Scorpio at 2:30 AM PST. This condition merely suggests that whatever is begun or occurs during this time will not have a significant future impact.



“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.
