Monday, July 30, 2018:
The cosmic movement and planetary impacts on Monday are relatively quiet. The Moon passes through Pisces forming only a lovely trine aspect to Jupiter at bedtime offering good sleep and sweet dreams. This is not a day when you are anxious to get to work or bother with much accomplishment at all. You may feel called to rest or dream the day away.
If you suspect that folks are avoiding you, rest assured that they may be doing just that or perhaps your imagination is running away with you. Let the concern go and enjoy your own open space of private consciousness.
Pisces is a Mutable Water sign offering passive, adaptable, but deeply emotional energies. Monday is a good day for meditation, spending time on water, allowing yourself to be engrossed in imagination, watching movies, or making music. Enjoy the rest and sweetness of the early days of this week.
WINE, MEDITATION, AND MOVIES
Tuesday, July 31, 2018:
We are blessed on Tuesday with another day of the Moon in dreamy Pisces. Indeed it is a mixed blessing. If you have to accomplish things that require determination or fortitude you will not be happy with where you find yourself on Tuesday. If, however, you are an artist, a dreamer, or a poet at heart you will welcome another day in this gentle space. While the Moon is in Pisces we all feel softer, more adaptable, sensitive, and vulnerable than usual. Remember this in your interactions with others. They may put on a brave face but underneath they are deeply aware of their human susceptibilities.
Find an emotional retreat for the day if you are able. You may be drawn to water, poetry, and music. Compassion, intuition, and imagination are easily tapped into. Enjoy a movie, a glass of wine, or time on your meditation cushion on Monday evening.
The Pisces Moon is VOC* from 6:42 PM EDT until she enters Aries on Wednesday morning at 6:55 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.
THE HIGH COST OF ANGER
Wednesday, August 1, 2018:
Wednesday morning brings a rather dramatic shift in how you feel. Suddenly you can’t imagine how you ‘wasted’ the past few days and may feel the need to make up for lost time. Early Wednesday morning the Moon enters assertive, action-oriented Aries bringing attention to your personal needs and desires.
However, there are more important things to consider with Mars forming a challenging square to Uranus on Wednesday evening. This will be felt for several days, so familiarize yourself with whatever issue that is asking for your attention.
Because of Mars’ current retrograde, this is more than a passing issue, this is a story that can be tracked from its actual beginning in February 2017 to the more recent chapter which began in mid-May, the core of the story occurs now, and this chapters conclusion which comes in mid-September. Look to the houses in your chart that hold Aquarius and Taurus as you consider how you have used your drive, forceful ambition, anger, and/or sexual energies in ways that have not served you or those around you well. Do you know what this story is? How can you bring healing to the results of your own misused anger and help support others in doing the same?
The Pisces Moon is VOC* until she enters Aries on at 6:55 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.

KEEP SAFETY TOP OF MIND
Thursday, August 2, 2018:
Continue your contemplation on Thursday regarding your past use/misuse of anger, drive, and aggression. Determine to use these powerful energies with more conscious awareness and kindness toward others.
With the Moon in Aries, you may feel more inclined toward individual acts of courage and daring. You may be tempted to do something you normally would shy away from. With Wednesday’s square between retrograde Mars and Uranus very much still in effect, you may not want to actually try those things just yet! Your focus is inclined to selfishness and impatience. You may be impulsive and not have the level of caution necessary for skydiving, rock climbing, or whatever courageous physical endeavor you are drawn to. If you do engage in such activities this week, consciously keep your safety top of mind.
You will want to engage your body in some good physical activity so go dancing or make love.
The Aries Moon is VOC* from 10:52 PM EDT until she enters Taurus on Friday afternoon at 3:51 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.
THOUGHTS ON A FRIDAY NIGHT
Friday, August 3, 2018:
A generally quiet day gives way to a more sensual evening/ weekend with a bit of excitement added to mix things up. When the Moon enters stable Taurus at 3:51 PM EDT your heart settles down and your ideas for the evening focus on comfort and connection. However, as the Moon joins with Uranus at 8:34PM EDT you may find yourself surprised by unusual circumstances. This could bring with it either excitement or anxiety. At 10:07 PM EDT the Moon trine Saturn stabilizes whatever brought the upset earlier in the evening.
The energies of Friday evening could be utilized in several distinct ways. You could find fun and pleasure in social circumstances with a more unusual eccentric group of friends or you may prefer to find unique ways to engage and connect with a lover.
The Aries Moon is VOC* until she enters Taurus at 3:51 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have a significant future impact.
“There is something out there. Astrology is like a game of chess with an invisible partner. We set out the board and the rules, make a move, and then find that the pieces are moving, as if by an invisible hand.”

A SATURDAY OF QUIET CONTENTMENT
Saturday, August 4, 2018:
The Taurus Moon squares the Leo Sun on Saturday at 2:18 PM EDT. This suggests a certain amount of stress as your emotions are looking for calm, quiet stability and yet at the same time you long for playful expressions of dance, parties, and drama. Endeavor to balance these energies as you consider what needs to be released from last weeks Lunar Eclipse.
Content yourself with a quiet Saturday evening. This is not a day or an evening for excitement, socializing, or parties. Stay home, enjoy your family or close intimate friends. Get to sleep early, sometimes, even in summer that is what is needed.
INDULGE YOUR SENSES
Sunday, August 5, 2018:
With the Moon in sensual slow moving Taurus, you are able to experience life more fully though your senses. This is a day to slow down, be quiet and still. There is no need to push yourself in the service of any accomplishment. You may want to indulge your senses with good food, good sex, good music, and a massage. Your senses seek arousal. Get outdoors in nature, weed your garden, and walk barefoot on the earth. Listen to the trees sing and pay attention to the messages the earth is constantly offering.
It is a Sunday, Mercury and Mars are both retrograde, allow yourself to procrastinate just for today. It won’t hurt anyone.
The Taurus Moon is VOC* from 7:47 PM EDT until she enters Gemini at 9:32 PM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs 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, textiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
