The Moon sets the emotional tone as she moves through the Zodiac day-to-day. It takes approximately 28 days to traverse the entire Zodiac. Learning to work with this rhythm will help you align with and relax into an easier flow with the Universe. The luminous Moon spends approximately 2 ½ days in each sign before she moves on to the next.

The week begins with the Moon in deeply emotional Scorpio. You may feel that you are being held hostage to powerful and difficult emotions in the early hours of Monday morning. As the day moves forward your heart releases the difficulty even as you remain committed to exploring what is hidden in the shadows.

At 8:56 AM EDT, the Moon enters Sagittarius and you are happy to shed the intensity and deep passions of the past few days. Reach for freedom, understanding, wisdom, and fun. The Moon will remain in free-spirited Sagittarius until early Thursday morning. Enjoy opening your mind and broadening your horizons. Find a view of the world that opens into a perspective beyond your usual frame of reference. Understand and celebrate the fact of how differently we each view this life and our place in it.

At 9:05 AM EDT Thursday morning, the Moon enters Capricorn offering time to focus your energy on ambition and effort.

At 2:39 PM EDT, we reach the Capricorn Full Moon which brings to illumination what you began at the Gemini New Moon Solar Eclipse on June 10th.

When the Moon is Full the night is brightly lit and behavior may be more erratic than usual. You may feel tension or exhaustion. Take extra care of your body and mind as you focus on bringing forward the intentions of the New Moon. You are able to be clear on what you have accomplished over the past few weeks. Perhaps you thought nothing was moving forward, now you see where progress has been made.

Mercury went retrograde on Tuesday so you can begin planning for new projects and plans now.

The Moon remains in Capricorn until entering Aquarius at 10:09 AM EDT on Saturday morning. She will hold court here for the remainder of the weekend. As a Fixed Air sign, Aquarius opens your eyes to the importance of seeking freedom for all humans who share life on our planet. End the weekend with your eyes open to how you can bring about change with one simple shift of behavior.


FALLING IN LOVE WITH LOVE – Monday, June 21, 2021

At 9:57 AM EDT Venus forms a sweet trine aspect (120 degrees) to Neptune. With the planet of love/ beauty interacting with the planet of imagination/ inspiration expect a day full of sweetness. Look for themes of romance, daydreaming, and creating beauty. You can engage a deep and gentle love for everyone you encounter. Your mind and heart are attuned to sensitivity and beauty in all things.
Don’t expect much interest in physically exerting yourself. Plan a day to indulge in opulent beauty, simple compassion, and unconditional love.
Let us not neglect the Moon today. The week begins with the Moon in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio. One thing to understand about Scorpio is that the more powerful the emotions the greater the need to keep those emotions private. When the Moon passes through this powerful emotional sign we feel more than we let on. Emotions may seem almost too tender to touch. Early this morning the Moon interacts with both Saturn and Uranus, reminding us that the social upheaval of our times impacts each of us.



The Moon leaves the intensity of Scorpio behind and moves into Sagittarius at 8:56 AM EDT. This suggests lightning of moods and more flexibility of spirit. When Sagittarius is in play we want to either play with abandon or explore higher ideals of spiritual understanding. Which will it be? That is a common Sagittarius concern.
At 6 PM Mercury stations Direct as we take a deep breath and think about the process of moving forward with plans and projects. If you have spent the past 3 weeks feeling like you were stumbling around in the dark and not getting done nearly as much as you would like to, relief is in sight. If you focused on the list you made at the beginning of the retrograde of things left undone, you likely accomplished a great deal. It may not have felt like you were accomplishing much but take inventory, you may be surprised.
Continue being cautious about timing and communication for a few days. It takes that long for Mercury to pick up speed along its forward path. Begin stabilizing your plans for the coming months of Mercury’s forward movement. The next Mercury retrograde will begin on September 27th. What plans can you set in motion between now and then?

GROWTH & INTENSITY, POWER & PASSION – Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Today offers a complex and varied day. You may feel elation and devastation side by side. Find the middle path/ balance point to increase passion and connection in your partnerships.

The gift of the Moon being in a Mutable sign today (Sagittarius) is that the emotional state of the day offers flexibility. We are more adaptable to the ups and downs offered by the other transits over the next few days.

At 6:11 AM EDT, the Sun forms a trine aspect to Jupiter. This is one of the very best transits that the Sun forms (2x per year). Even with the complications of Venus opposing Pluto today you can enjoy high spirits, self-confidence, and enthusiasm. You may feel a bit lazy as though there is nothing to be done beyond accepting the good that comes your way. Keep your eyes open for opportunities that bring material, personal, and spiritual growth. Your outlook on life can expand through chance encounters over the next few days.

Adding a serious dose of intensity we come to a transiting opposition between Venus and Pluto, exact at 7:39 PM EDT. Combining these planets bring our thoughts to extreme emotions and emotional extremes. Consider how you manage the radical nature of love and passion. We may encounter overwhelming feelings of jealousy, obsession, and power dynamics. You can transform the negatives of this combination into the passion and magnetism that it also offers. Look clearly at your most passionate nature and make any adjustments necessary for health and good sense. Engage your sexual nature as it can easily take on an extra dose of passion and desire over the next few days.

The positivity of the Sun trine Jupiter can engage the transformative power of Pluto in order to build passion and connection to a loved one.

The Moon enters Capricorn at 9:05 AM EDT as she prepares for the Capricorn Full Moon at 2:39 PM EDT.

Full Moons often feel disruptive and may point to erratic behavior, anxiety, and/or exhaustion. You may find yourself inexplicably anxious or upset. Research has shown that we sleep less for a day or two around the Full Moon. Remember to rest and take extra good care of your body.

Each Full Moon occurs two weeks after the New Moon that began the current lunar cycle. On June 10th we had a powerful Gemini New Moon Solar Eclipse. Consider what began then. What do you see has progressed between then and now?

Consider the polarity of houses that this Full Moon illuminates in your natal chart. The houses that hold Capricorn and Cancer are activated. What is important for you to understand and possibly make adjustments to in those areas of your life?

When the Moon is fully illuminated those areas of your chart are magnified as is your feeling nature. Hidden issues rise out of the shadows and secrets may be exposed. Both passion and conflict may come to a head. Perhaps the anxiety at a Full Moon speaks to the fact that we know our hidden agendas may not stay hidden.

THE FACE OF REALITY – Friday, June 25, 2021

The Moon continues through Capricorn today bringing your attention to those things that need your regard. If you expect to reach your broader purpose you must focus on practical steps toward accomplishment.

When the Moon is in Capricorn your attention can be single-minded in its focus. You need to do something today that will support a more structured, practical order to your life. This is a time to develop concrete ideas and plans.

You are not interested in the distraction of pesky emotions and may be annoyed if others seek your attention.

The practicality of today’s Capricorn Moon may be overshadowed by Neptune stationing retrograde at 3:22 PM EDT at 23degrees Pisces. Neptune spends approximately half of each year in retrograde motion. This is the planet that symbolizes the spiritual side of our lives as well as issues of imagination, illusion, addiction, suffering, and loss.

Neptune’s effects are very subtle and yet often shield us from seeing what may be right in front of us. The positive side of Neptune shows the beauty of unconditional love and a beautiful sunset. The negative side of Neptune shows layers of confusion, delusion, and a painful lack of boundaries.

When Neptune is retrograde we may need to face the reality of an area of life that we have been looking at through rose-colored glasses. Consider the reality you must face over the coming months in the area of life represented by the house that holds Pisces.

Do you have planets near 23 degrees of Mutable Signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces)? If so, this transit will last several years and supports a deepening of spirituality, compassion, or confusion. A personal consultation will help you understand yourself and work with this challenging transit.



Yesterday’s focus on serious accomplishment and hard work is released as the Moon enters Aquarius at 10:09 AM EDT.
A strong sense of innovation prevails when the Moon is in future-oriented Aquarius. With the Moon in Aquarius, your heart can be stimulated by new and unusual intellectual topics and ideas. You may hear unconventional opinions expressed by others throughout the day. Listen and consider what you hear.
Pay attention to innovative concepts and ideas. Listen for opinions that seem refreshing and unexpected. Ideas can lead you to places or companions that surprise you and wake you from a slumber you didn’t even know you were in.
Today, you will find it easier than usual to remain cool and calm in the face of stress. Aquarius is a Fixed Air sign, putting your intellect is in control rather than unstable emotions.

GRAND EXPRESSIONS OF LOVE – Sunday, June 27, 2021

As the week draws to a close the Moon continues through Aquarius suggesting a cool state and a day focused on logic and intellect.
Last night as you slept Venus entered Leo after her time spent in practical in Virgo since June 2nd. Venus is the personal planet that represents what we love and value. While in Leo Venus shows love with grand generosity. Expressions of love are warmer and more extravagant while Venus passes through this Fixed Fire sign. Venus will remain here until July 21st.
While Venus is playing in Leo go ahead and show love with wild abandon and grand gestures. Let others know if this is what you need in return. We are all more willing than usual to offer and appreciate dramatic expressions of affection and love.
Show generosity with attention, adoration, gifts, and romance. Express warmth, pride, drama, and extravagance, make love a grand romantic adventure.
_The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 3:07 PM EDT until she enters Pisces very early tomorrow morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._


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. 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.


The most important journey an individual can make is the quest to find the soul’s purpose and to develop the personality to serve that purpose. Once you dwell in the revelation of true purpose, knowledge becomes wisdom, and love blossoms. It is my sincere wish that my work serves as a companion along your way. Laurie Astrolore
